Soulcalibur VI: Yoshimitsu VS All Character (All DLC Included)

Yoshimitsu (吉光) is a character in the Soul series of fighting games. He appeared in the game Soulcalibur VI, which marks his debut appearance in the new, rebooted Soulcalibur timeline.

He is nicknamed The Original Mechanical Ninja.

Soulcalibur VI
In Japan’s Warring States period, the ninja Manji Clan’s name stood out, despite—or because of—their impartiality. However, in times of such violence, it was dangerous not to pick a side, and the Manji Can would suffer for their stance… One lord wished to recruit the clan, but when they refused, he torched their village to the ground, killing all but one: their most skilled warrior, Yoshimitsu. All alone, he honed his ninja skills, and slowly fought back against the lord, despite being overwhelmingly outnumbered. During his desperate fight, the ninja’s desire for revenge grew stronger and stronger, until he felt the need to obtain a weapon without equal… Soul Edge…

When Yoshimitsu left Japan for the first time, he realized just how big the world was. Every step he took further away from home, the more confused he began to feel. When he saw the devastating effects Nightmare’s cruel reign of terror had brought to the land, the ninja could not help but be reminded of the tragedy that befell his village. Would his family be proud of him for extracting revenge? Deeply confused, he arrived at Ostrheinsburg only to cross paths with a female warrior. In response to his deteriorating mental state, Yoshimitsu’s sword transformed. The blade had always belonged to the Manji Clan, but its wielder’s desire for revenge, together with the evil pervading in the air of Ostrheinsburg, had warped it. Only by bestowing on in it his own name was Yoshimitsu able to break free from the sword. Thinking back on everything he had done, he decided to give up his desire for revenge, and instead chose the path of righteousness. This would lead him to create a band of chivalrous thieves known as the Manjitou.

Weapon & Style
A legendary sword that has been passed down through the Manjia clan for generations. It was given to Yoshimitsu when he proved himself the greatest warrior in his clan. Now, he keeps the sword close to hand and heart as he seeks revenge. Some say it is imbued with strange magic, but the secrets of its creation were lost when the Manji clan was destroyed.

The blade is shrouded in mystery, and may have even originated from the Fu-Ma clan, but none can say for certain. Its unbelievably strong spiritual power leads some to believe it was originally intended to be a ritual dagger. No matter its true purpose, it is more than suited for battle.

Manji Ninjutsu
In Japan’s Warring States period, the influence ninja had on the balance of power and the outcome of battles cannot be underestimated. Ninja clans did not work specifically for any one person, and could not be hired by any warlord who had the coin. They had no interest in who won or lost the wars for control over the country, only in honing their skills.

The Manji clan’s village was located at the foot of Mt. Fuji. Unfortunately, they earned the ire of a powerful warlord, who saw to it that the clan was destroyed. Currently, their techniques live on through the lone survivor, Yoshimitsu, who dedicated his life to his clan’s martial arts. Manji ninjutsu’s unusual combat techniques are designed to leave an opponent bewildered, unsure of their opponent’s next move. Also, the swords used in Manji ninjutsu are not the straight ones most ninja clans employ, but curved at one end. In other words, Manji techniques are designed to be used with a katana. This allows its wielder to adapt to weapons they find while on a mission, or disguise themselves as samurai.
