Introduction

Ling Xiaoyu (凌曉雨 Líng Xiǎoyǔ; Japanese: リン・シャオユウ Rin Shaoyū) was introduced in Tekken 3 and has returned in every subsequent release.

Ling Xiaoyu, born and raised in China, is a student at Mishima High School in Japan. Ling Xiaoyu is also a schoolmate of Jin Kazama and Miharu Hirano. In Tekken 4, Xiaoyu wished to be reunited with Jin.

Xiaoyu was once an innocent, yet determined young girl living in China. It was unknown why, but she was taught by her grandfather diverse Chinese martial arts possibly as a form of self-defense. Xiaoyu would take her amusement park dream over the edge during her high school years as she would even go to the point of sneaking to a privately owned ship, beat up the security and go up to the company's president and demand he build her an amusement park. The company's president would see the girl's potential as a fighter and would even train her a specially trained bodyguard for the young girl. He would even send her to the company financed school where she would eventually meet two of her closest friends. Though Xiaoyu could not win the third tournament as part of a deal that if she won, she would get an amusement park, but she was more concerned over it's winner and close friend, Jin Kazama due to his sudden disappearance shortly after winning and suddenly dropping out from school. She did however get a text message warning her of the Mishimas, but would enter the fourth tournament nonetheless in order to find Jin. She didn't actually play a major role in the tournament however, but was assisted by Yoshimitsu briefly, who told her at how Heihachi had thrown Kazuya down a cliff, thus starting a generation warfare between the Mishimas. She then decided to temporarily stop her chase for Jin in order to find the funds needed to help a scientist build a time machine. She then became more determined when her benefactor was supposedly killed after the fourth tournament. In order to rescue both him and his family, she decided to enter the fifth tournament in order to save him. Something she did not expect however was that he had actually been well and alive, causing her to withdraw. To her surprise, Jin, would appear on national television numerous times, not for winning the fifth tournament or becoming CEO of the Mishima Zaibatsu, but for declaring war against the world. This would eventually cause her to seek out Jin once again in the sixth tournament.

Xiaoyu is distinctly known for having a child-like innocence despite having amazing fighting ability in contrast to majority of the cast. She appears and behaves childish (with a slight exception in Tekken 4, where she looks a little more mature). Nevertheless, she is well devoted and very focused however when making large decisions and dreams that she believes can be accomplished by her alone. Her optimism would eventually make her close friends with an equally optimistic Miharu and even the calm and quiet Jin. She also greatly admires her benefactor, Heihachi Mishima, as he had been the one providing for her since she went to Japan before maintaining herself. She also greatly valued her bodyguard, Panda, even doing her best to provide the bear with bamboo.

She was raised in China and performs Chinese martial arts, but has a quite stereotypical Japanese anime personality, perhaps because of her studies in Japan.

Her chase for Jin during recent tournaments would eventually lead her to someone who was equally determined to find Jin, Hwoarang. Though it is unknown to how or when they have met, their meeting has been confirmed thanks to Xiaoyu's dialogue in the Scenario Campaign in Hwoarang's stage in which both refer to each other by their given names. She is often by fans noted to have a strong crush on Jin mainly due to her constantly desire to meet Jin to the point where Miharu even hints this relationship during Xiaoyu's Tekken Tag Tournament 2 ending. Another possible reason to back the closeness of their bond is that Devil Jin suffers head trauma whenever he sees Xiaoyu, a strange trait shared with Hwoarang, who, like Xiaoyu, does not possess the neutralization powers of the Kazama family.

Her title in the original trilogy is High Spirited Girl.

Story

Prologue (Manual)
This young girl loves amusement and theme parks. Her dream is to build the perfect amusement park in China when she grows up.
She is both young and small in stature but Ling is a skilled martial arts expert. Many believe if she was more serious she could achieve real greatness. Having learned that the Mishima Financial Empire is rich and powerful she seeks out Heihachi (president and CEO) to make her dream a reality.
While vacationing in Hong Kong with her family, Ling stowed away on a yacht bearing the name, Mishima Financial Empire. Heihachi was not on board but Mishima's men discovered her soon after the ship left port and Heihachi was informed immediately.
Upon his arrival, Heihachi found his men beaten and strewn around the ship as if it was hit by a hurricane. She threatened that she would go berzerk again if he did not accept her challenge. Roaring with laughter, he promises to build the amusement park of her dreams if she wins the tournament.
Ending, "Dreamland?" (Unofficial Synopsis)
Heihachi Mishima keeps his promise, and he builds Xiaoyu a theme park. Xiaoyu imagines a place full of happiness and color called: "Xiaoyu Land". However, when her daydream ends, Heihachi unveils the real theme park, which is a gloomy place called: "Heihachi Land". Heihachi is roaring with laughter. Xiaoyu gets angry, and beats up Heihachi, yelling "Jerk!".

Story

Prologue (In-Game Text)
Xiaoyu was a junior at Mishima High School. But lacking any particular goals, Xiaoyu grew tired of her everyday routine. One day, she received an anonymous e-mail warning her of Heihachi’s evil intentions, and the dangers she faced. Though Xiaoyu replied to the e-mail in hopes of an answer, she didn't receive any further messages. Xiaoyu’s intuition told her that Jin, who had been missing since the last Tournament, could be the sender.
She believed in the message and began to distrust Heihachi and the Mishima Zaibatsu. Upon hearing the announcement of the next Tournament, Xiaoyu decided to enter in hopes of being reunited with Jin, and to unveil the truth behind Heihachi and the Mishima Zaibatsu.
Epilogue (In-Game Text)
Xiaoyu defeated Heihachi. No one foresaw this outcome. Soon thereafter, Xiaoyu learned of Heihachi's many evil deeds. He was clearly guilty of supporting the raid on G Corporation. The evil nature of the Mishima Zaibatsu was finally revealed. Six months later...
Ending (Unofficial Synopsis)
Ling Xiaoyu won the tournament and took over the Mishima Zaibatsu. Miharu Hirano visits Xiaoyu in her new office, and lightly scolds her for looking like she does nothing. Xiaoyu casually asks her friend how she did in her college entrance exams, and Miharu confesses that she has flunked all of it. Wanting to help her friend, Xiaoyu offers her a job, stating that from now on, she is going to make her own dreams come true.
She tells Miharu that she saw Jin Kazama after the tournament. He told her that if she has a dream that she wants to come true, she should make it happen herself. Miharu lightly teases her, and recognizes the change in Xiaoyu, who used to depend on everybody else. Miharu agrees on working together, and asks her friend what her dream is.
Xiaoyu points outside, to her very own amusement park, which she wants Miharu and her to build together.

Trivia

  • After beating story mode with Xiaoyu, her alternate costume becomes available by pressing triangle.

Story

Prologue (In-Game Text)
Ling Xiaoyu, out to save the Mishima Zaibatsu. She learned the Zaibatsu's troubled history after Yoshimitsu rescued her. Xiaoyu felt it all began when Heihachi threw Kazuya into a ravine. She cried when she heard of the Heihachi's death. "If only I could turn back time..." says Xiaoyu.
Around then, a scientist told her he could create a time machine...for a price. She opens her invitation to The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. With the prize money, she could make everything right.
Interludes (Unofficial Synopsis)
Stage 4 Jin Kazama: Xiaoyu finds Jin and he warns her that the tournament is dangerous and that time cannot be reversed. Xiaoyu refuses and defeats Jin with the promise to reverse time.
Final Stage Jinpachi Mishima: Xiaoyu faces Jinpachi while going over the prize money and time machine. After she wins, Jinpachi thanks her, and Xiaoyu is confused about who should she get the prize money from.
Ending (Unofficial Synopsis)
After winning the tournament, Ling Xiaoyu is the first to use her time machine. She travels back to the time when Heihachi was about to throw Kazuya Mishima off of a cliff, intending to avert this event that will rip the family apart. Unfortunately, Xiaoyu had lost control of the time machine and it barreled into Heihachi and Kazuya, sending Kazuya falling off of the cliff, while Heihachi is nearly sent over himself. Xiaoyu is miserable because of her failure, and the old scientist comes to her, laughing, and tells her that nobody can really change the past, “The best you can hope for are minor improvements.”.

Story

Prologue (In-Game Text)
Xiaoyu was relieved to hear that Heihachi Mishima was still alive. She later learned that Jin Kazama, who had become the head of the Mishima Zaibatsu, was out to eliminate Heihachi. Xiaoyu intended to persuade Jin to stop, but she was unable to approach him due to the Mishima Zaibatsu's military buildup.
The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 was announced just as the world fell into chaos in the wake of the Mishima Zaibatsu's war declaration.. Xiaoyu decided to enter the event for a chance to make Jin change his evil ways.
Ending, "Romantic Dreams" (Unofficial Synopsis)
Xiaoyu confronts Jin, just as he is about to jump off the rooftop of a building. She tries to dissuade him from doing so, only to get the reply of "The evil that I've (Jin) perpetrated....can never be undone". Xiaoyu shook her head and ran up to Jin, embracing him, vowing that she would stand by him. Apparently moved by this, he thanks her...
In the end, however, it was revealed to be only a dream, as Xiaoyu was then seen sleeping on Panda, unaware that the latter was uncomfortable, and that she was still in the throes of her dream. She embraces Panda very tightly, causing her to toss Xiaoyu off the side of the bed. Waking up, Xiaoyu was still confused to where she was.

  • In the NOVO trailer for T6:BR, Xiaoyu is shown standing in a subway train while holding a mobile phone. Here, she's wearing her school uniform.

Story (From Wii U Edition)


In the hopes of fulfilling her dream of creating the perfect amusement park, Xiaoyu came to Japan with her pet, Panda. After she enrolled in Mishima Polytechnic, which was founded and head by Heihachi Mishima, she befriended Jin Kazama and developed feelings for him. Years later, Jin became the head of Mishima Zaibatsu and proclaimed a state of independence and war on the rest of the world. After Xiaoyu found out about Jin's sudden turn for the wicked, she resolved to try and help him mend his ways[1].

After they've found it, Miharu brings up how they are becoming adults and will need to make difficult choices. She continues to wonder where they will be in 20 years. Xiaoyu jokingly says that wherever they will be, they will have wrinkles. Miharu thinks that in 20 years, Xiaoyu may be married to "that certain someone". Although both girls know that Miharu is referring to Jin Kazama, Xiaoyu tries to feign ignorance. Just as this is said, the sun breaks through the clouds. Xiaoyu cheers while Alisa inquires on who Miharu thinks Xiaoyu will be married to. Xiaoyu tells Alisa to figure it out herself and runs off.

Story (Unofficial Synopsis)

The plot, which takes place between the events of Tekken 5 and Tekken 6, begins with Anna Williams setting up a decoy for her sister, Nina Williams, who is currently working with the new head of the Mishima Zaibatsu, Jin Kazama. Anna, on the other hand, works for Jin's father, Kazuya Mishima and its rival organization, G Corporation. Both are seeking information about a student named Shin Kamiya, and Anna dispatches a Chinese student, Ling Xiaoyu, to act as a spy, while Jin sends humanoid robot Alisa Bosconovitch for a similar purpose.

During their investigation, Xiaoyu and Alisa formed a friendship, although they are forced to turn against one another when Shin is captured by an unknown assailant. It is here that Alisa is revealed to be a robot - although Xiaoyu believes she possesses human qualities after she spares Xiaoyu's life. After coming to terms with each other, Xiaoyu is abandoned by Anna and G Corporation, and the two girls fled from their previous organizations, taking refuge in their teacher, Lee Chaolan's mansion.

Xiaoyu and Alisa eventually discovered genetic experiments had been done on Shin and his classmates, and believed that the Mishima family is seeking Shin, the sole survivor, and M gene subject, for his immortality. The pair discovered that this had in fact, been an elaborate plan engineered by Heihachi Mishima. After Heihachi disposes of Shin, he, Kazuya and Jin engaged in a three-way brawl. Ultimately, Jin is the victor, utilizing his devil powers. Heihachi then unleashes the ancient spirits of the Mokujins, but is defeated by a final burst of attack by Alisa. Jin then leaves, telling Xiaoyu that he awaits a future challenge.

The film ends with Alisa and Xiaoyu back at their school's festival, with the pair planning to enter the next King of Iron Fist Tournament together.
