|What about Yoshimitsu's outfits?|
Have you ever
seen “Predator” or “Predator 2” movie? With Arnold Schwarzenegger
[ Predator ] or Danny Glover [ Predator 2 ]??? Well, I think that
Yoshi´s Tekken 3/ Tag outfit is very similar to Predator´s
one...Quite similar mask, armor...[ maybe not behaviour...Predator
is an alien with very, very bad manners and he screams like...a
pig ^_^ ]... in Tekken 3 intro is shown an invisible Yoshimitsu
with the same electronic camouflage the Predator has... not to mention
the original Namco´s picture titled “Space Ninja”, in which
Yoshi is showing his skills in a space ship that resembles the Predator´s
one from “Predator 2” movie...
|The analysis describing qualities of the name of Yoshimitsu.|
I took it not so long ago from the site entirely dedicated to names of every description [ but I forgot the address... oops! ]. I like it very much! I will not change anything:
Your name of Yoshimitsu has many sterling qualities but does not give you an overall stability. You do everything with an intensity to the point of fervour, and either you feel tremendous elation or you are in the depths of despair. People often disappoint you because you are idealistic and are apt to place those whom you admire on a pedestal. Then you become disillusioned when they fall short of your expectations. You are quick mentally and like to see things moving at an accelerated pace. Patience is not one of your virtues; you want to move when the impulse strikes you. While such spontaneity is fine at times, you must take account of conditions and employ careful analysis so as to avoid disastrous results such as accidents due to hasty actions. Most things you do, you do well, but as soon as the task, hobby, or job becomes familiar or routine, you are bored and crave a change. Travel and new horizons ever intrigue you, but your hunger for greener fields is insatiable, and so you do not experience contentment and peace of mind. There is such a driving power within you that, you cannot find an outlet or if your actions are thwarted in some way, you feel the reaction through extreme tension in the region of your solar plexus. The intensity and consequent outbursts leave hurt feelings in their wake, usually involving those closest to you. Any weakness in your health would result from your sensitive and high-strung nature in stomach disorders such as nervous indigestion or ulcers.
|Yoshimitsu: The Sword|
[ Tenshimitsu & Zombiemitsu ]
First time I started thinking about Yoshimitsu's sword was his appearance in Soul Calibur. I was quite disappointed to see Yoshimitsu being a den character or something... [ Yoshi's second outfit. ] I was also unsure if Yoshimitsu from Soul Calibur and from Tekken is the same person. Their profiles differs from each other, Yoshimitsu from Soul Calibur is slightly smaller than Yoshi from Tekken... I affirmed that Soul Calibur Yoshimitsu is a kind of "ancestor" of Tekken Yoshi [ well, Soul Calibur tournament is claimed to have taken place in the Middle Ages... ]... but only "a kind of". ^_^ why? Let me explain:
Yoshimitsu's silver blade brought down the demonic sword. However a spark from the demon sword struck Yoshimitsu's blade and it began to shed a strange aura.
"Has my sword been possessed by evil?
NEVER! IN MY NAME I WILL CONTOL THIS EVIL!"
He gathered money and food for poor and helpless people.
The good name spread throughout the land.
Many great heroes sought his good name.
When we compare these arguments to the legend of the Yoshimitsu sword [ The sword Yoshimitsu is said to be a relic of unimaginable value. It has been handed down through the Swastika band from the very beginning and it has the power to sever an enemy both spiritually and mentallly. The sword exchanges hands when a new leader is elected. The old leader is ritually sacrificed and the swords power is transferred to it's new owner. ], then we see that Yoshimitsu from Soul Calibur is really a kind of ancestor of the Tekken Yoshimitsu. On the other hand - memories and experience of past leaders remains in the sword, so we can say that the spirit of Yoshimitsu only exchanges a body. Yoshimitsu is ageless indeed! And [ to my happiness ] this is the never ending story!
New viewpoint: Zombiemitsu told me something interesting about Yoshi's Tekken 4 outfit:
He doesn't have a head, you can see the glowing red eyes from behind. You can see his head is hollow. Maybe he is really just a ghost. He is no longer living or dead , he just exists. He transcends life and death.
Well...really? [ personally, I didn't notice it... do you have a big, clear picture of his head? Maybe his head is not hollow, but his mouth is covered with a black material, like ninja? ] It means that Yoshimitsu's sword is the same since the very beginning?... o_O? Or maybe he spares his sword for more dangerous fights or something, and uses lightsabres in a tournament? It's all so complicated! ^_^ I will be sure if I see the CLEAR picture of his Tk 4 2nd outfit! ^_^ If anybody has an idea how to combine all these facts, I would be very glad to hear another point of view!
Going back to the topic, Zombiemitsu told me more about Yoshimitsu's "hollow head":
You can see Yoshi's red eyes through his hair really good when you lose, when it asks continue and counts down the camera pans behind Yoshi. His head is down cause he's mad he lost. When the countdown is 3,2,1 you can see it good. I'm not saying for sure his head is hollow. It just looks that way. Also he looks like a robot, you can't see any human skin. But on the character select screen, the 1p Yoshi ( the one with the skull face/insect outfit) you definitely see human skin on his neck below his helmet kinda thing. Maybe the 1p is real Yoshi and the second is robot Yoshi ( maybe doctorB. made it) haha I'm just making theories, I don't know for sure.
Yeah, I'm not sure as well... maybe this transparent hair is just a game glitch? But hey, the "Robo-Yoshi" holds a classical katana! [ maybe without a tsuba, but it's made of steel! ]. So, Yoshimitsu really has the same sword as in Soul Calibur, no matter Tekken 2, 3 and Tag lighsabres???...maybe? I have no idea! This sword doesn't have to be an original Yoshimitsu... NAMCO! At last make everything clear!!! The legend of the sword says that no one can forge a copy of Yoshimitsu-the sword, so what about all these Yoshi's lightsabres? Who can make all of this logical!?
Yoshimitsu's sword has always been the same sword from the Soul Calibur days. Passed on to the head of the Manji-clan who then takes the name Yoshimitsu. I think the sword can glow at times or just look normal. Sometimes it's green like a light sabre and it also glows red when you steal a move in t4 (my favorite is the red). It's a crazy, whacked-out magic sword.
Well... It would be great... but what about an original Namco's picture named "The Space Ninja", in which Yoshimitsu poses with two green light sabres? [ click here for the picture ] What about a rumour about a laser weapon created by Dr Boskonovitch? Ronimitsu [ Ronald Delval, the author of Yoshimitsu fan fics ] made an interesting theory: in his opinion Yoshimitsu's sword was kinda "upgraded", together with Yoshimitsu's body, and Dr Boskonovitch managed to forge some copies of the "Sword of the Devils" which maybe aren't as powerful as the original sword, but they are definitely more lethal than a regular sword. Heh, we're all making theories... ^_^ Everything's possible in Tekken. Imagine this:
Yoshimitsu: "Hey, Doc! I got bored with the green colour: could you change it into blue?"
Heh heh heh....^_^
THE SWORD - Part two
Another thing: In Soul Calibur 2, the history of Yoshi's sword was changed a little bit. Now it's claimed that his sword has gained the magical abilities in Ostheinsburg Castle. Evils spirits that residented in this monumental building were drawn to Yoshi's katana, because it was used to shed blood in the past. That day Yoshimitsu named his sword, and his legend began! ^_^
Do you have any comments? ^_^
|“Yoshimitsu: is he really "The Space Ninja" we know?”|
[ Kirimitsu ]
I have been thinking [very uncommon for me ^_^] about something the last few weeks.. Yoshi is a Space Ninja. Perhaps the name Space Ninja has a deeper meaning than we think. Please read on:
[ Tenshimitsu ]
What I think is: Yoshimitsu is called "Uchuu ninja". Uchuu means "Outer
Space", or "Outer Void", but it don't really have to mean the cosmic space.
Maybe it means "Transcendental Void"? ^_^ It would be great, because it
means that Yoshimitsu's abilities "are not from this world", he just reached

It's very, very logical. Do a little experiment: while walking on a gravelled path, desire to find a coin, with your whole heart... in a matter of time, you will see coins everywhere! Of course it will be only the illusion, BUT... you have just realized that your thoughts in some extend model your way of perception! How many times you thought that you saw your friend in a crowd when you were thinking about him? Do you sometimes have a feeling that if you are sad, a whole world is dull and dark? Yeah... ^_^ So why do you think that if you say that something is true, it's REALLY true? For somebody else your ideas may be wrong, because his or her perception is different. We are young in the scale of the world, we cannot controll our minds! No wonder there is so much of misunderstandment. :) No wonder there are so many "ways", interpretations: and things that should be good and bring order: are misused, cause wars and evil. [ just look at religions, how can people kill each other in the name of God? Nonsense! ]. That's why each one of us should first know oneself, know one's way of thinking, recognize all the tricks that our mind uses to fool us. :) If you think "mine", "I", "me": you're at the beginning of your way. :) How can you think "mine"? How can you talk to yourself in your mind? You haven't yet reached the perfect harmony. :)
[ Kirimitsu ]
That's correct! But how about using these stances and techniques in the heat of battle? Is it possible to harness these powers to do your bidding? Be mindful that of all the elemental forces that make up the universe, the most difficult to control is the one that lies between and joins the others: The Void. Some trained individuals can
call upon and direct only the individual forces of specific elements, while others can use them all. But Void disciples understand that everything in the world contains all the basic elements, held together by the least tangible
essence. Void is like the silence between notes of music, giving rhythm and shape to the whole. To those who
understand the relationship of Void to all other things, and who have the innate ability to personally perceive that relationship, distance and form become inconsequential.
|Yoshimitsu's Seiyuu (Voice Actor)|
This is the man who does the voice acting for Yoshimitsu, Nightmare and adult Link in SoulCalibur 2, and what a wonderful job he does! Born in Hiroshima, Japan, on August 25th, 1967, Nobuyuki Hiyama has done literally dozens of voices for animes, video games, television shows, and more. Information on him was extremely scarce, surprisingly, but this is what I was able to come up with:
