Characters that are like Yoshimitsu

Indeed, Genji from Overwatch resembles Yoshimitsu. Especially this skin that looks like Yoshimitsu's outfit from the original Tekken game.




Other characters:


The Noh Master from the game Red Ninja: End of Honor



Saizo Hattori from the Power Instinct series (Fun fact: I remember seeing this character, when I was younger, and thinking he was Yoshimitsu in a new Tekken game.)



The Great Kabuki (Japanese pro wrestler)



The Great Oni/Mysterious Budo from Saturday Night Slam Masters



And last but not least, Vega/Balrog from Street Fighter! I mean, they are both agile masked Ninjutsu-trained individuals that participate with a weapon in a hand-to-hand fight tournament. And the fact that Vega's alternate outfit in Street Fighter X Tekken is based on Yoshimitsu cannot be coincidental.

Yeah, Genji Oni skin is amazing :) I would totally play this skin if I could play overwatch!

Likewise, although I am not sure if my computer can handle Overwatch (it cannot handle Tekken 7 either :( ).

Added 1 year later:

A few days ago I watched the classic Japanese movie Onibaba (1964), and there appears a samurai with a Hannya mask that looks like the original outfit of  Yoshi :D
