Deep within a lush and thriving forest lies a heavily defended research
facility. This facility was a research institute named after its director,
Boskonovitch. This facility was very important, as it was here that the Mishima
Financial Group's most sensitive military equipment was developed. Located at the
core of the researcher center was a room that kept its most prized possession: a
clear capsule, in which a young girl slept soundly. Her name: Alisa
is an android created by Dr. Boskonovitch.
She is able to sprout cybernetic wing-like jets from her back allowing her to
briefly fly at great speed during battles, and can also sprout chainsaws from
her arms. Unlike most robots, Alisa possesses emotions. She is very
kind-hearted, sensitive to others' feelings, and speaks in a polite manner. It
appears she does not want to fight and hurt her enemies. She's even aware of
family values; as evidenced when she tells Lars to not
point a gun to his father, Heihachi.

I have to
admit, if I was on the Tekken 6 dev-team, a chainsaw-wielding
android girl with cybernetic wings wouldn't have been on the blueprint. lol. Yeah,
Alisa is definitely
obscure, even for Tekken. She obviously isn't as "serious" a fighter as the other
martial arts based
characters, but she does bring a certain uniqueness to the series...
similar to how Yoshimitsu has over the years.
Also, she has quite a lot of personality for a robot. ;)
a futuristic android and all, her abilities aren't completely
unbelievable from a "near future" setting. She has a variety of hard-hitting,
innovative, and highly entertaining moves... especially the ones where she uses her own head
& limbs weapons. Alisa isn't a design that appeals to everyone (and she
isn't supposed to). You can
hate on her all you want, but she's undeniably an original female
fighting game character.
She has some badass animations, and under the control of a skilled player, her
fighting style is awesome to watch. Overlooking her oddly-colored hair (eek), she's
also a visually pleasing
design. I'm not incredibly fond of her default outfits, but at least
she has some epic
Love her or hate her, she's a well thought out character and adds to Tekken's
interesting and diverse roster.
