Ling is a high-spirited young
girl studying ancient Chinese martial arts. Wang
is her instructor and a distant relative. Panda
is her pet and one of her best friends, along with Miharu. Ling was a junior at Mishima High
School and used to be schoolmates with Jin Kazama.
At the time of King of Iron
Fist Tournament 3, Ling is obsessed with amusement parks, and her dream is to
build the perfect amusement park in China. Having learned that the Mishima
Financial Empire is rich and powerful, she seeks out Heihachi
to make her dream a reality. While vacationing in Hong Kong with her family,
Ling stowed away on a yacht bearing the name, Mishima Financial Empire. Heihachi
was not on board but Mishima's men discovered her soon after the ship left port
and Heihachi was informed immediately. Upon his arrival, Heihachi found his men
beaten and strewn around the ship as if it was hit by a hurricane. She
threatened that she would go berserk again if he did not accept her challenge.
Roaring with laughter, he promises to build the amusement park of her dreams if
she wins the tournament.
the events of King of Iron Fist Tournament 4,
Ling studied and
trained as a ward of the Mishima Zaibatsu. But lacking any particular goals,
Ling grew tired of her everyday routines. However, one day, she received
an anonymous e-mail that warned her of Heihachi's
evil intentions and the danger to her life. Ling replied to the e-mail,
but she did not receive any further messages from the anonymous individual.
Ling's intuition told her that Jin, who had
been missing since the last Tournament, could have sent the message. She
believed the message and started to suspect Heihachi and the Mishima Zaibatsu.
Upon hearing the announcement of the next Tournament, Ling made the decision
to enter hoping to be reunited with Jin and to unveil the truth behind
Heihachi and the Mishima Zaibatsu.
In the previous
tournament, Ling was saved from the evil plans of Heihachi by Yoshimitsu,
who taught her the history of the Mishima family. Hearing this, Ling began to
believe that the root of all misfortune surrounding the Mishimas started with
Heihachi's cruel upbringing of Kazuya.
When Ling heard of the
death of Heihachi, a tear came to her eye. "If only I could turn back
time..." Ling said with a hint of sadness and regret. Later, Ling happens
to meet a brilliant scientist who claims that he can make a time machine as long
as he gets the funding for development. Under the condition that she will be
first to use the machine, Ling pulls out the wadded scrap of paper in her
pocket... an invitation to the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5.
Ling Xiaoyu breathed
a sigh of relief when she heard Heihachi had not truly died. However, as
head of the Mishima Zaibatsu, Jin Kazama aims to take Heihachi's life.
Xiaoyu was going to try and stop Jin herself, but the Zaibatsu pushed towards
militarization, making it difficult to approach Jin. The Mishima Zaibatsu's
declaration of war drew hostility from around the globe. When the King
of Iron Fist Tournament 6 is announced, Ling Xiaoyu enters in the hope
that she can save Jin's soul from evil.

Ling debuted in
Tekken 3 as a unique fighting game character in terms of both appearance and
fighting style. Ling's moves are graceful & simply beautiful since the very
beginning, and are also based on
authentic Chinese martial arts. Her abilities and animations have significantly
improved from sequel to sequel, ultimately making her one of the most dynamic
fighting game characters of all time. Overall, her fighting style is one of the
most fluid, and "fun" to ever grace a fighting game. There's a pretty
big learning curve to using her properly in Tekken, but if you take the time to
memorize her 100+ moves and killer stances, you'll understand why Ling gets such
a high rating. ;)
Along with a cute and funny personality, Ling also has some hilarious taunts and
a variety of cool (and sexy) outfits. One of my favorites of her's is her Tekken 5 outfit with the panda
backpack. xD In closing, Tekken just wouldn't be the same
without Ling, and she's only gotten cooler (and hotter) over the years...
