First Appearance: Soulcalibur
Year: 1998

Out of place in sister-series, Tekken, but a nice fit in the Soul universe, Yoshimitsu is one of the Soul series' greatest characters. Newbies might be frustrated by his unorthodox moveset, but those who put the time in will find a rewarding character that can travel all over the screen. He's a force to be reckoned with, to be sure.
