His name's Taira no Kagekiyo and is also a samurai, he's from a game made before Tekken. Genpei ToumaDen (Samurai Ghost) by Namco 1986
Look alike Yoshi video/Kagekiyo
Movie trailer /Even longer movie/game trailer
In soul calibur 3 With 2 characters that are obscure outside Japan.
In other games (Namco x Capcom) It's a Japanese site. There are English ones about this game, but I couldn't find any that had tekken characters in.
All you've got to do is copy these symbols: ( たろすけ(左)。CV：瀧本富士子。) and paste them in Google it should be the 2nd hit, then translate the page. Enjoy!:)
wiki profile About the story of him and his relations to the game.
About him: Taira no Kagekiyo (Kazusa no Shichiro) his real name. Existed in feudal Japan and his story telling changed elaborately. His clan (Taira) is the crab (Kagekiyo) clan and they participate in the Gempei war to defeat the Genji clan.
In games: Kagekiyo is based on his storys, only each Genji boss takes form of a demon. Kagekiyo must defeat them to reach Minamoto no Yoritomo (the emperor) and assassinate him.
My Opinion: Judging from his pictures I believe our Yoshi is an inspiration from this guy. I see his traits throughout many of yoshis previous tk costumes.
