Josie Rizal (ja. ジョシー・リサール Jyoshi Risāru) is a character first introduced in Tekken 7 as part of the first set of time release characters. Prior to her official announcement, her render was leaked, and there were many speculations as to her origin. Many pointed to the Philippines due to the design and color scheming. Before her render was leaked, Harada had made a tweet considering a Filipino character for the game, exclaiming "Jollibee" in the process. According to Harada, her constant crying is due to her previous backstory. Mad Catz's Markman was also consulted heavily in order to create her design.
Her character design was drawn by Mari Shimazaki.
Games in order of appearance:
- Tekken 7 (2015)
She has multiple moves and animations that were originally seen from Bruce Irvin. Whether the two are connected by story or if this was a mere coincidence is unknown.
Having been a big cry baby since she was very young, her parents who were big fans of Martial Arts insisted that she train martial arts. Despite her reluctance at first, she later became accustomed to training kick-boxing to live up to her parent's expectations although it hasn't cured her from being a cry baby.
Making a living by being a kick-boxer and a model, she was on track to helping the household until a large typhoon in the country ravaged her home and creating wide spread damage.
To offer aid relief to the ravaged country, the Tekken Forces from Mishima Zaibatsu came to help out those affected and Josie was inspired to become a Tekken Force member. After that, she set out to join the Tekken Forces by taking their employment examination.
- Her rage art in the pre-Fated Retribution build of the game is copied directly from Xiba's (from Soul Calibur) Critical Edge.
- Her name is a play on Jose Rizal, the Philippines' national hero.
- Her "official" cosplayer for Tekken 7 is Yuriko Tiger.
- The flower design her clothes have is based on the Sampaguita, the national flower of the Philippines.
