About Yoshi's hair

Well, hello everyone...im new in these forum and i was reading all (not all) the post and there is something it was confuse me... let me explain i have tekken 5 DR and im always play with Yoshi (now its very difficult) and my love Dragunov (>w<)...and when i want to customize Yoshi there is a item called "hair" and now what i see...is his hair but is white like if he is old:O_o

In tekken 1 and 2 he has brownie hair...but now i see that his hair is white...is he getting old? and (plz sorry for my ignorance) he is not inmortal,no? because i heard in another site that he is inmortal and bla blah blah...

Well, I have shared my thought on Yoshi's age on other threads but no one else has posted here yet and I really don't need much encouragement to talk about Yoshimitsu. So... here's my opinion.

I don't think he's getting any younger so it is quite possible that his hair is whitening but also, these last ten years or so have been pretty stressful for him don't you think? They say stress can cause your hair to turn grey. Maybe we should all chip in and pay to send him to a nice relaxing spa for a few months? (I should maybe have warned you that I have a vivid imagination, don't be alarmed!)

But also, he did sort of suddenly jump from appearing pretty much like a guy in a mask to being... umm... whatever it is he is these days. A lot more bionic anyway it would seem. So if that's the case, he probably doesn't have much need for hair so what's to say he definitely has any? It's not that difficult to put on a wig and that can be any colour he wants it to be. Though again, not very practical.

I got bored a few weeks ago and decided to work out Yoshimitsu's date of birth using numerology (if you don't know what that is it's a form of divination -fortune telling- using numbers). With numerology you can change a name into numbers and work out aspects of someone's personality in a similar way to astrology. Anyway, it was a ridiculous exercise as you can't really use it like that (but you've no idea how bored I get sometimes) but the date I arrived at put his age at like, 104!! I almost fell of my seat. Though I've since realised that some of my calculation were wrong anyway. Gonna do it again and hopefully he'll be a bit younger this time!

I wouldn't get too worked up about his customization items, they're only additional stuff you may or may not want to add to make your character more unique. I would venture to say they've got nothing at all to do with the character him/herself.

Do keep in mind that you can change other characters' hair colours and whatnot. Still, in the end, it hasn't affected the character at all.

Hello and welcom to yot forums Haru-chan!

This hair customization is in fact a wig made from Yaks hair. Samurai's used to ware them just to look a little more intimidating. :)

Well can't remember what part of edo era or whatever; but I saw it on Google a long time ago. I was going to add to my journal 'The yo man' but I could only find one picture and info about it was all jumbled & my computer didn't understand symbols, so I couldn't copy text to search for other pics so I could compare.

About the stress and white hair. When I was about 12 or 13, a friend of mine showed me the "best scenes" -.- of the documentary movie faces of death part I.
It was horrible, disgusting and intrigued me greatly!!
Scenes of ppl killing and eating a little chimp, a bear biting a man´s face of, an electrc chair victim, crocodile accident and more.

I couldn´t take this ^^" I kinda freaked out that night, sweating and stuff and I couldn´t shake off those images in my head :(
A few days later, I had a white strand of hair on my head:O_o
really, no kidding!

I took years until it dissappeared again. Maybe there are a few white hairs left, but not many.....luckily!

Anyway, I can´t imagine Yoshi having hair at all, but if he had hair, they`d be white/grey for sure, I mean he`s in Heihachi´s age, isn´t he ?? If he was human.....
It´s complicated ^^"

:dozingoff

I understand you really
When i saw a snuff movie ( :con stupid joke from a friend who told me that it was a funny video...and obviously never talked to him since that day) i was shocked really i get depressed and scare for all

And when you mentioned about the white hair...something happen to me...same effect (like i told you when i saw that horrible snuff movie)but now not.

You know i was thinking the same theory but when i read Sumsamurai's post...it was cleary...maybe she is right but at the same time about the stress :dozingoff
....maybe...

About Heihachi xDDD No i dont think so maybe yoshi is a bit younger than him but not older like him (at least we dont mention about the age of Wang)...i think that yoshi maybe have the age of Kazuya i dont know its complicated really

And what Jembru said xDDD....yes we have to send him to a spa
104 old????? WTH????xDDD

Hmmm. Maybe he is old but there's a difference between 'old' and 'elderly'. No one really knows for absolute certain that Yoshi's even human, there's plenty evidence on both sides of that debate. I consider myself to be quite young but if I was a cat I'd be very, very old indeed (oh I do wish I was a cat). So just because Yoshi's age may seem old by our standards, to his own race (whether he's some sort of 'super human' or not even human at all) he may be quite young. Anyway, if Yoshi wanted us to know his age we would know it and after all, age is just a number.

We'll never know the truth behind Yoshimitsu. Yeah it's fun to speculate, keep our imaginations fit and active, but all that we can be sure of is that Yoshimitsu is Yoshimitsu! And don't we love him anyway?

About the age. Yeah, I thought 104 was a bit high (should we half it?) but I liked the rest of the date I came to. It made his star sign cancer and in a funny way, it kind of fits!!

But hey, I do these things for my own personal entertainment, that's all. I say this all the time but the best thing about our Yoshi, is that he can be whatever we want him to be!!!!

-J

MMM...i read in some page (spanish page) that he was the recarnation (i dont know how to spell it)from a dead god...(yes it was suprising but i like it)...it was funny thinking of that,really!!!!

>w< I like the way you said Yoshimitsu is Yoshimitsu....yes WE LOVE HIM 8D even he is old or young or wathever age is it...we love him >w<.....really you inspire me...now i want to draw yoshi all the time xDD

A god ? A "dead" god? Which one?
Sounds interesting...
I dunno much about japanese gods, but I know Amaterasu, Susanoo, Tsukuyomi
and their pops Izanagi.
Does Yoshi relate to any of them in a way ??

What excactly does Yoshi ean again? Maybe it´s a hint. Jemma, ur japanese
is of use :P

From hair colour to Yoshi being a god!!! Yes I love this forum. Ha ha.

His name confuses me, not the kanji, they're just &#21513; meaning luck and &#20809; meaning light and I'm pretty sure it has that somewhere on this site. It's the reading that confuses me, probably because my Japanese sucks, but when I see &#21513; I expect to read it 'kichi' (or maybe kitsu as in 'fukitsu' meaning bad luck). And &#20809; I thought was read 'hika' like in the word meaning to flash or to sparkle. If I had seen the kanji for Yoshimitsu without knowing his name I'd have thought he was called Kichihika!! A lot of kanji have many readings but Yoshimitsu just seems like a very rare reading for both these kanji. I could well be wrong of course (any Japanese people here wanna help me out??). But even when I type Yoshimitsu with Japanese input mode, I have to scroll a while before it comes up with the correct kanji combination (though it does remember so when I'm writing my sad diary entries about how much a adore Yoshi, it doesn't take me so long -just kidding, or am I? :dozingoff).

Anyway, I'm afraid by knowledge of Japanese deities isn't really good enough to even hazard a guess who he may be. But, I do know that in Shinto it is believed that important people can become gods when they die so maybe Soul Calibur Yoshi died, became a god and then was re-born in human form in the future (modern day to us)?

Wow, imagine our conversations if we all got round a table with a few beers? It would be amazing!


Oh and I'm glad I inspire you Haru, if you're going to use my inspiration to draw lots of Yoshi, please put the pics on YOT for us all to enjoy!!!

Jembru : Wow, imagine our conversations if we all got round a table with a few beers? It would be amazing!
Hah, I don't even need beers to start doing that. I'll just sit down for five minutes without doing anything, and my mind completely pisses off on its own (it buys a caravan on my credit card and takes off for a week holiday).
By the way, you should all check out the "Theories" thread I've created about thousand years ago in here. It's for people to publish their own theories and ideas about Yoshimitsu and Tekken altogether, and speculate 'till their hearts are content.

Ehemm... i found the page (the spanish page) So i will try to translate,ok? (even if im bad in translate i will try to explain the main idea :P ) Here we go (OMG Christie's quote xDD):

"Existe además un Spoiler extra?o que dice que Yoshimitsu es el Gen Diabólico concentrado en un cuerpo, y que además es la reencarnación de Toshin, el dios de la lucha que controlaba a Ogre (el jefe final de Tekken 3), aunque es más que probable que este Spoiler lo editara originariamente un fan del personaje."--->This is the spanish quote

*Transalte*...And also there have been and strange rumour that said Yoshimitsu have the evil gene in his body, also they said that he is the rencarnation of Toshin, The god who controls Ogre mention that he (Toshin) is the god of fighting, but is probably these rumor have been created by a fan of these character" -->(sorry guy for the bad english ><)

The site : http://videojuego.wikia.com/wiki/Yoshimitsu (is in spanish)

-------------------------

And yess Jembru 8D i get the picture of these converstaion with a few (a few? xD) beers and...and...chips and...and..*come on guys said more ideas for these special momment xDD*

To read wiki link above in your own lingo; copy and paste it into Google. It'll be the first hit, and next to it is Google's Translator.

...

Yeah, I think this rumour was made up by someone who had no idea what he/she is talking about. They probably got him mixed up with the Mishima's and the devil gene or something...

If Yoshi was to look like any deity I would say this Japanese-hindu one: T6 lookalike Zouchoten.

Here's a link to the Yaks hair I forgot I had; Also there's a helmet that resembles his unique kabuto!.

These were in fact in my journal; I forget so much I must be getting old!:con

Umm.. Link to the journal if anyone's interested. To be honest, I'm not happy with it. (Like it's scrap work!) Think I'm more wise and it needs to be completely re-written...Someday. Link

Toshin is Oger. > Link

Jembru : Wow, imagine our conversations if we all got round a table with a few beers? It would be amazing!

OMG! I Just visualized it! Hehe! Not gonna tell what I saw! Hell yeah it's funny. I'll just sit back and eat some popcorn.:D
