Yoshimitsu (吉光) is the leader of the Manji Clan, wielder of the Yoshimitsu Sword and aide of the poor and innocent. He entered the first Dead or Alive Tournament to win the prize and aid his clan to maintain itself. In order to be successful, he vows to be ever strong, though when a young girl, Xiangua, is captured by Heihachi Mishima, Yoshimitsu comes to her aid. The events that would come prompted Yoshimitsu into being a member of the Defenders of the Realm.
