Lee is a master of
Chinese medicine and Chinese martial arts. His style of fighting is described
as "a gentle yet destructive" art. His adoptive father and mentor,
Lee Gakusuo, passed on his pharmaceutic knowledge and martial arts to him
before instructing Lee to finish his studies in South Town. Once he arrived
there, Lee became fascinated with the local style of Kenpo and neglected his
roots to be a street fighter. He pursues his wishes to be a pharmacist in the
following game. In his ending to AOF2, Lee would humorously become
famous for finding the cure to hemorrhoids.
His adoptive father
considers himself to be a good acquaintance and sparring partner of Takuma.
When Gakusuo was 93, he clashed with the younger Takuma bare handed and became
responsible for the X-shaped scar on his chest. This is briefly touched upon
in Honki ni Natta Mr. Karate's ending for SNK vs Capcom: SVC Chaos
where Takuma fondly chats with Lee. Lee
also uses a similar fighting style to Choi
