Official: "Lending a helping hand..."
Tekken 1 EndingYoshimitsu successfully steals the funds from the first tournament and gives the cash to the local poor people.
Tekken 2 EndingThe Yo-man sees the helicopter with Bosconovitch flying away and he jumps up, breaks through the window, and grabs Bosconovitch. He jumps out and does the deathcopter (also called SenPuuKen: his newly learned technique) as the helicopter explodes. He didn't kill anybody in the helicopter: pilots parachuted from the machine.
Tekken 3 EndingYoshimitsu and Dr. Boskonovitch are in a laboratory. A jar labeled "Ogre's Blood" sits on a counter filled with a bubbling green substance. They watch a white rat drink some of the liquid from a petri-dish, and look at each other in awe. Suddenly the rat cringes in pain. Yoshimitsu grabs Boskonovitch and runs away from the house as fast as possible. The house explodes as a giant rat goes flying out towards the screen.
Tekken Tag EndingYoshimitsu defeats Kunimitsu in the Serene Forest. However, Tekken Tag Tournament has nothing to do with Tekken history.
Tekken 4 endingWell, ... Tekken 4 ending has many mysteries to uncover! Thanks to Kirimitsu, I took a closer look to what Yoshimitsu said, and together we discovered something odd... ^_^ Firstly, read two translations of Heihachi's and Yoshimitsu's words: the free translation, which was made before an English version of Tekken 4 arrived, and the official Tekken 4 translation:
[ Narrator ] "Knowledge of the victory stirred up support for the Manjitou. This was the first in a long time that the higan was fulfilled. But Yoshimitsu knew what kind of man Heihachi Mishima was. Yoshimitsu gave the party members instructions and faced the Mishima Headquarters alone."
[ Heihachi ]
"The victor of the tournament is you, but I will not hand over the Mishima Zaibatsu to the Manjitou. You are the embroidery carrying the Manjitou. You provoke the general public with your unrealistic ideals, because of this, you are a hinderance to me."
[ Yoshimitsu ]
"You have decided to go down the road of immorality."
[ Voice from speakers ]
"The vault at the center of the Financial Affairs office has been breached. The Manjitou helicopter..."
[ Heihachi ]
"What? Y-You. Fire! Follow them! Damn you Yoshimitsu!"
Official Tekken 4 translation [ thanks to Kirimitsu!!! ]
[ Narrator ]
"When word of victory reached the Manji Clan, they were ecstatic-- their long-wanted wish would finaly come true... Yoshimitsu, however, knew better than to trust Heihachi Mishima. Yoshimitsu gave an order to his Clan members and headed to the Mishima manor."
[ Heihachi ]
"You may have won the tournament...
but I will never hand over Mishima Zaibatsu to the Manji Party! You Manji are nothing but a bunch of con artists. You incite the masses with your false promises-- and get in our way."
[ Yoshimitsu ]
"Those who tread the path of evil, shall face judgement eventually."
[ Voice from speakers ]
"Someone has broken into the central treasury vault! Sir, the Manji have lifted the entire vault with a helicopter!"
[ Heihachi ]
"What? Y-You! Shoot him! After him! Damn you, Yoshimitsu!"
Heh heh, and here's the funny part: Yoshimitsu does NOT exactly say what was mentioned above... ^_^ Do you want to read more? Really? Jump to "Did you know" page!!!
Tekken 5 EndingBryan walks slowly through desolated, ruined city. He senses danger but he cannot tell from which side he should expect Yoshimitsu's attack... Then, he suddenly notices him behind the wall. He shoots wildly with his minigun to Yoshimitsu, who starts running away. The bullets chase them... but Yoshimitsu disappears. Bryan looks around, searching for him... and then he looks up, only to see Yoshimitsu coming at him with his famous "Oboroguruma" attack (Moonsault slayer, QCF+1 ^^"""). He knew he didn't have any chance. Yoshimitsu landed behind him, and after a second, Bryan explodes. Yoshimitsu said: "Inga Ouhou!". It means "Retribution".
Tekken 2 - Serene ForestLet's start with Tekken 2. As far as I know, his stage is called "Serene Forest". It's a dark, damp coniferous forest, which matches Yoshimitsu perfectly in my opinion. Not to mention just awesome Background Music! [ Yeah, we have it in our collection in "Y-podcast" page! ]. The mix of techno beats and monk's singing is just awesome! For many experienced Tekken players it's the best background music in the whole Tekken series.
Tekken 3 - Serene Forest... again!Tekken 3 stage: it's Serene Forest again! But... a little bit different. :) Below are thumbnail images which link to Serene Forest pictures: we can notice a gate and a wall. :) Now something interesting: first screenshot was taken from the Official Namco Tekken 3 Site, and the second... is the in-game screenshot! It's clearly visible that the in-game forest was edited a little bit :)
Of course we cannot forget about the famous Tekken 3 Yoshimitsu Theme written by [as far as I know ] Sanodg. :) Excellent! It perfectly matches Yoshimitsu's new (and kinda shocking to some) looks. (Not to mention changed battle stance, but this was noticed only by hardcore Yoshi fans) We just had to have it in our collection, and so you can dowlnoad it in mentioned above "Y-podcast" section. Highly recommended!
Tekken 4 - the JungleDeep in the untainted wilderness of Yambaru, on the Islands of Okinawa, the peacefull singing of the exotic birds is roughly disturbed by the few combatants that dare to travel into the wild and steamy jungle. For what reason this wilderness is Yoshimitsu's location of choice is unknown; Perhaps there is a Manji hideout in this remote region, or perhaps he came here to meditate and train. Anyway, Yoshimitsu seems to be well adapted to the jungle- his new 'bug' combat armor perfectly blends in the surrounding plants and trees, while his sharp claws help him moving around in the dense vegetation.
The stage is in fact amazing! Very detailed and very Green. See pictures below!
Location: Sub-tropical Jungle
Features: Medium sized stage with a small stream, no spectators.
Hazards: One big tree in the middle
Background Music: Didgerhythm.
Starting locations: 1
Tekken 4 - ShinjukuGolden Gai, the infamous Kabukicho region and the many popular Arcade-halls make Shinjuku one of Tokyo's most popular spots and one of Yoshimitsu's favourite places to hang-out.
It's nightlife has flourished since the Edo period, when this region became the first stop on the old Tokaido road to Kyoto. Be carefull, though, when you are walking in the crowded streets of Shinjuku by night; since from time to time streetfights occur and entire phone boots in front of the cinema's ticket office get smashed in the heat of battle.
Location: Shinjuku, Tokyo-to prefacture, Japan.
Features: Pretty open, medium crowd of spectators present.
Hazards: Walls, 4 phone-boots.
Background Music: Bit Crusher.
Starting locations: 3
Tekken 5 - Hell's GateThis is the biggest suprise for Yoshimitsu fans. Until Tekken 5, Yoshimitsu's arenas were designed as more or less secret forests, and now? Hell's Gate? But it's really his stage: Yoshimitsu's second outfit brings us to this conclusion. It resembles Japanese "undead" demon (and demons in Japan usually want revenge :)). Does this arena have a symbolical meaning? For sure. Probably Yoshimitsu's desire for revenge brought him at the edge of spiritual fall. Probably with this one wish to murder his sworn enemy he denied everything he believed in and he started his own "ring of evil". But well, take it easy: it's not Hell, just Hell's Gate. :P We don't know yet how it all ended. By now Yoshimitsu watches the purging flames just before the Hell's entrance...
Music title: "Ka-en-no-mai", which means "Flame's dance"
