Machine., PlayStation Universe, September 19th, ; ^ "Tekken 6 Guide & Walkthrough - Xbox - IGN".
She pondered over the matter for a moment. She moved her hand towards his. But suddenly retracted it. Shinjimitsu managed to get up and draw his katana. He attacked savagely, ignoring the pain of his wounds. But Kunimitsu kicked him unconscious. He will be my successor and you will never take my place as long as you are evil like this.
I've seen the future in my meditations and your future is grim. I've defeated you once and once again, you are nowhere near my skill. Why do you keep trying, is your greed and jealousy this blinding?
Kunimitsu raised her dagger "I know my life will never be good, I have seen my destiny too. But nonetheless someday I may become lucky, you will make a mistake someday or have bad luck and then I will kill you. And as long as I can take you into the grave with me… rrrnha, and when I face my destiny I will have at least the satisfaction that I took you with me" the female ninja said. Yoshimitsu shook his head "I will die one day too. In battle when I have reached an age, you can't imagine.
But my death will serve a noble purpose as my life did.
Yoshimitsu - Wikipedia
And the Manji clan will honour my name for all eternity. I have a noble destiny and my path leads to the light but yours…" Yoshimitsu sighted. Today will be that day I will have revenge! Devil vengeance Nina Williams, professional assassin and thief lay on her bed.
Her clothing lay next to the bed and she smiled while looking up at the white ceiling. Her last job had been a piece of cake. She stole some jewellery that would bring her more than a penny or two. She pondered over the last Tekken tournament held by the now dead Kazuya. He became Devil or Devil spawned out of him in each case there wasn't a real Kazuya left. She trembled, she diverted her attention to more pleasant thoughts, the last time she had encountered Devil he nearly got her killed and… Yoshimitsu.
She thought about the participants of the last tournament. They were many and among them Anna, her eternal rival and Paul Phoenix, the brutal fighter. Then there was Armour King and King. He had only participated to save his friend Dr.
Boskonovitch, a noble sentiment unlike hers. She had only joined for the money. And she'd been frozen in, only to be recently revived.
Ready, to participate in the next Tekken tournament. It would be her third time she'd enter. She had a mission…. Worries for later she thought as her mind shifted to the mighty yet almost inhuman Space Ninja. Her Swiss pocket Knife… she smiled as she could almost hear him say with his calm and low voice "Most amusing".
He had saved her life from the demonic warrior Shadow, one of Devils evil warriors. And now they had found out they loved each other. She had been even allowed to see his true self. He wasn't handsome under there, far from. Pale after years without sunlight, many wounds and scars and off course his… cybernetic extras like that hand of his. She herself was beautiful, blond, long legs and firm breasts.
She could have any man she wanted, desired but strangely enough she only wanted him. After a night together he had left promising a return before the next Tekken Iron Fist Tournament. He too had a mission, once again saving Boskonovitch. He needed the vaccine that only an entity known Ogre could deliver. The monsters' blood was what he needed….
Luckily they would not really cross each other to complete their separate missions.
Knowing Yoshimitsu, he'd let her win in the tournament if they'd have to face each other. He did not care about a stupid trophy. He only cared about honour… but it was that honour that had forced him to return to his clan. I'm going to show him that I can get past his Manji Warriors. That would impress him. Because he loved her for her strength within and not without.
Not that he didn't care about her body…" she smiled as she remembered the sweet memories of the past. The seductive assassin got up and put on her underwear, black shoes and black pants. A red shirt hiding several knives and guns and she was ready to go out. Devil sat in his throne. After the painful betrayal of Shadow, three Manji Warriors had tried to kill them but all three Ninja had been killed by his eyelasers. He stood up and stretched his wings. He was a horned devil, purple with three eyes.
His third eye, in the middle of his forehead fired pink energybeams. His tail twitched nervously.
Tekken 2 - Plot Analysis/FAQ
On his chest was a long thick pink scarlike mark. He walked through the room. Chained to the wall were several interesting figures. Lee Chao-Lan, the adopted son of Heihachy was unconscious, his white silvery hair covered his eyes. The martial artist and successful businessman had been utterly dishonoured and ridiculed. Two wrestlers who had superhuman animal senses, Armour King and King.
Armour King was a dark skinned, armoured warrior with huge muscles a dark outfit and a black panther mask. King wore a similar yellow mask. He wore a boots and pants of a typical USA wrestler. His body although smaller than the tall Armour King was still extremely muscled. Both mighty Kings roared savagely as he passed, he ignored them. Michelle and her daughter were both skilled martial artists wearing a modern Indian style outfit that combined with their beauty would make the hearts of most men melt.
Paul Phoenix wore a leather biker outfit and had blond, long gelled hair that stood up. They were all three unconscious. His guards, several 'acquired' Jack robots stood on guard. Anna, sister of Nina Williams was waiting for him. Flanked by two Jacks she stood there with arms crossed. She wore long red gloves and a red dress. She had brown hair, but her traits were slender and elegant like those of her sister Nina.
They were rivals in everything. She's probably headed towards Yoshimitsu's current position" she said. Devil nodded and spoke with an amazingly human voice "Good, go with several Jacks and aid Kunimitsu. If she hasn't already eliminated Yoshimitsu help her with capturing him. His hand entered her dress and caressed her breasts. Anna shivered as the vile abomination looked at her with lust.
Anna bowed and left followed by several Jacks. Her eyes where watery but she stayed strong for the sake of Lee. The robots followed her, their heavy steps unable to remove the sound of her beating heart. The factory he possessed, hidden inside this building had begun producing these outdated but still useful Jack models.
A robot disguised as a man, loyal and cold, excellent henchmen especially combined with their huge intimidating size and impressive strength. Manji duel Kunimitsu moved with great speed, the blade of her dagger would have hit Yoshimitsu if he hadn't stepped back and dodged the blow. Kunimitsu jumped up, her feet hit him in the face and the Manji Master was pushed back. Kunimitsu came down on her feet and raised her dagger once more. The guards were trying to bash in the blocked door.
The battle would be over before they got in. There were no other entrances except barred windows which even the Manji Ninja could not use to penetrate the room. Yoshimitsu took an offensive stance with his katana held by both hands. The blade enveloped by pure energy, emitted a green light as bright as sunlight. Kunimitsu and Yoshimitsu attacked at the same time. Both dodging, countering blows and attacking themselves.
Kunimitsu was faster than the Space Ninja but nowhere near his endurance and strength. Even without his upgrades he had been a strong man but now his strength overshadowed that of Kunimitsu.
But both knew one needed more than mere strength to win a battle. Kunimitsu dashed her knee forward but Yoshimitsu turned and the attack missed. At the same time he struck with his sword.
Kunimitsu deflected the blow of the arcane sword but not entirely. She got cut in the shoulder. She barely let out a sound. This time Yoshimitsu didn't bother to counter, the blade struck a heavily armoured part of his body and he barely felt the knife hit the plate.
He himself hit her with his left hand, forcing her to move back. The 'throne room' was huge and their was enough space for him to use, so Yoshimitsu jumped over Kunimitsu. He kicked her in the back. Kunimitsu fell but quickly leapt up with the catlike agility so characteristic of the female ninja. Both faced each other again, circling and searching for a weakness in the opponents' defence. Yoshimitsu stormed towards her with his katana raised.
He struck with a circling motion but Kunimitsu jumped up and barrelrolled back. Yoshimitsu used the same trick to get closer to her. She punched but Yoshimitsu ducked and pushed her.
He started rotating his robotic hand. The blade of his katana became an impenetrable shield and the chair Kunimitsu threw at him splintered into fragments. That did it, Kunimitsu lost all control over herself and rushed forward. I'll have your head for that! The Manji Master smiled behind his demonic helmet.
Kunimitsu was out of control as she lunged at him several times and enraged, she did not notice that her defences were down. He threw up his sword and hit her in the chest with his robotic hand and let his elbow come down on her back.
She fell and the katana landed next to her head.
She tried to get up but a kick dropped her again. His left hand now rested on the grip of his katana. Unused, the strange glow now disappeared while he bowed and grabbed her by the neck. His robotic hand held her tight as he lifted her up. There she hung half unconscious. Searching for energy reserves, but she found none. After all isn't that what you want? There was sadness in her voice but also the usual defying hatred and anger. Strangely Yoshimitsu thought he heard something else too, perhaps longing?
He could have killed her using his robotic hand to crush her neck or cut her in two with his blade, even use his katana to suck up her soul, but he didn't… he couldn't. A memory came to him…. Riding through the village…. He, Kunimitsu, Shinjimitsu, Hora, Kerasu, Shojomitsu and the others were riding on horseback through the pain stricken village. They had eliminated those responsible of the attacks on the village. He and Kunimitsu had taken out the leaders of the bandits before any of those brigands knew what happened.
The other Manji Warriors had finished up. Now they brought their loot to this village that had helped the Manji so many times. It was in the days of old before his first Iron Fist Tournament when the Manji hadn't modernised yet and he hadn't been 'altered'. Kunimitsu and he had then still been close. They had been friends and almost something more… there had been a degree of love between them but it never had the change to grow.
He had been the noble leader, the 'Samurai' who mastered the Ninja arts. He had been the assassin who worked for good and honour and she'd been his right hand. Strong, loyal and graceful. Beneath her mask he knew she had a beautiful face hidden. There had been a time when he had still been truly a man and she a righteous woman. Her smile could melt his heart. After stealing from Michelle Changs tribe, a tribe of innocents… he had banished her. There had been something, a connection but nowadays….
He was the ultimate warrior, but was he still human? And then there was her… she had kept her beauty but it was now cold and emotionless. She was corrupted and evil. And he honourable and the leader of the Manji Clan, the true leader.
A place she wanted as her own together with his sword and revenge for all their past feuds. He used to call her 'little one'… was that so long ago? Suddenly he remembered her on horseback turning towards him "Well my dear what…". He dropped her and took his katana, she had already leapt up, ready to defend herself. He merely turned his back to her. She had recovered quickly from her beating. She was dangerous and he knew he should've finished her. He knew by mind but his heart said it couldn't end like this.
He countered cutting her but making sure not to wound her too seriously. She stepped back, she was already too weakened to win and she knew it. But she refused to surrender. She attacked once more and as he prepared to block, she jumped over him and turned. Yoshimitsu dodged once again, and hit her.
Knocked back as usual, she coughed. Behind her mask drips of blood appeared and rolled over her throat. He planted his katana in the floor and the glow disappeared once again. She attacked once more and hit him enough to push him back against the wall.
She grabbed his sword and attacked again. The glow did not appear, but nonetheless it was still a deadly weapon. Dagger and katana pushed forward. She attacked and attacked. Scratching him several times but it was nothing his regeneration could not handle long-term, as long as she didn't do serious damage that was. Only when both weapon and user are one, true strength is achieved.
A sword is only as good as it's wielder, in short…" he grinned. Both dagger and katana planting themselves in the beautiful wooden floor. She fell on her behind and he took his katana. He moved towards her with his usual calmth and Kunimitsu felt fear as she finally saw the spiritual and focussed aura around him. Finish it… you always claim I deserve it so then finish it" she said. He pointed the glowing blade towards her. She remained proud and strong 'till the end.
The point of the katana touched her throat. She looked defiantly in his direction, her gaze clear behind her white mask. But he didn't finish her off. He retracted his blade and put it away at his side. Surprised she looked up "This is the second time in one battle why? I'm your worst enemy…". Kunimitsu looked up in wonder.
He knelt next to her. Someday you may succeed" his steel hand opened and he pointed towards the door. The Manji bursted in and saw the ninja intruder defeated on the floor. It are only cuts and bruises… I" but the young warrior kept quiet as he saw his master, some rest might not be too bad anyway.
I've not heard that in such a long time" for the first time in years something she cried a something seemed to crack. Her hate and anger for Yoshimitsu disappeared for a moment and through the weakness in the wall around her heart something broke loose. Yoshimitsu all of the sudden felt pity for the female ninja.
He took her gently in his arms. At first she stubbornly held back until she herself gave up and snuggled closer.
He liked it and so did she, it was like the past when both had still been unmarked by the tragedies of their past and the scars of life. And even in that I fail time after time". He took her mask of.
Her face was pretty and her hair brown and soft. He thought of Nina. She probably had already forgotten about him. Who'd remember a freak like him whose only goal was to serve the Manji ideals, ideals she like Kunimitsu seemed to find incomprehensible. Kunimitsu stood up again and he let go. He got up and drew his sword as he returned to his throne. His sword, the Devil Sword, the ultimate blade lay on his lap. Kunimitsu regained her self-control and realised how much weakness she had shown.
But she noticed Yoshimitsu did not take advantage of the weakness she had shown, he simply sat there and kept quiet. For a short moment she considered giving up her plans for revenge but that moment passed quickly, nonetheless things had changed between them if only extremely slightly.
She took her mask and dagger but to Yoshimitsus' surprise, she didn't put it on yet. She finally turned her eyes down. Yoshimitsu himself had recovered too and taken on the arrogant and prideful attitude he had gotten after all these years. It was one of the few darker sides of his karma. His arrogant stance against Kunimitsu and all those he had judged as evil or weak.
A similar thing to the way Kunimitsu looked at things, she felt superior towards everyone. The irony of the situation was that he mostly talked when facing his great rival. He knew I wouldn't resist, certainly if he paid me for it and… and he threatened me. His aura, his powers somehow scared me. But I couldn't resist going for the kill.
He also wanted me to kill Nina" Kunimitsu said. But she was interrupted by the voice of a Manji Warrior "There is a female here to see you sir. She managed to get pretty far without being noticed. The Manji were among the greatest warriors in history and THREE unnoticed intrusions in one day would not exactly be very 'good' in the eyes of their respected leader.
Yoshimitsu looked at her with his head held slightly crooked. She remembered Kunimitsu to be an old enemy she'd seen him face at a Iron Fist Tournament. But from the looks of the beaten expression on her face and the multitude of scratches it was clear who had won once again.
Both women went for their weapon. Kunimitsu's dagger against the small throwing knives of Nina. Kunimitsu wanted to regain some self-respect and by defeating Nina she could do that. He looked at Nina "What are you doing here? She answered "I've come to see you" she knew he was impressed but also agitated.
She didn't want any emotional scene in front of the female ninja. Although he knew they were arch-enemies she saw how attractive she was. I thought even Yoshimitsu could find something better than an empty-headed whore! Explain Kunimitsu" Yoshimitsu said.
Which he'll use to kill Ogre and his hated enemy Heihachy in the Iron Fist Tournament that'll be held anytime soon. Nina followed and took his robotic hand.
The cybernetic replacement felt cold. You aren't becoming soft are you! Next to ambitious she's got a big mouth. I know her but one minute and already want to kick the crap out of her" she said. Kunimitsu cursed some more. With his one love around, and clearly she loved him truly… and his nemesis hopping behind he felt human again. Bosconovitch tells him that Bryan woke up only a month after the injection and went on a rampage with his new body.
While trying to find Bryan, Yoshimitsu learns that his sword is weakening. As his sword is cursed, it will lose its power and drive its user insane if it does not kill evildoers for a prolonged amount of time. He decides to adopt a second sword called Fumakenwhich has the ability to suppress the cursed sword's properties, and enters the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 in order to restore the power of the cursed sword.
Yoshimitsu senses something amiss and decides to enter the King of Iron Fist Tournament 7 to confirm his suspicions.
