Biography

Story

Asuka trained from a young age in the Kazama style of Martial Arts from her father. She grew up with the values of justice and fairness. When returning home, she found many pupils of her father beaten; they spoke of a Chinese man, later discovered to be Feng Wei, who went to the dojo and attacked them and Asuka's father, leaving him hospitalized. She later learned that Feng would be participating in the King of Iron Fist tournament, and thus she joined it to find him.

Eventually, she had to return to her everyday life empty-handed. But only for a short time, as she found that Jin Kazama was responsible for the global unrest that had taken over. Out of a sense of duty, she joined the next King of Iron Fist once more to bring him down.

Throughout her time in the tournament, Asuka came to know Emilie De Rochefort, Lili for short, with whom she would grow a minor rivalry. For the seventh King of Iron Fist tournament, Lili would register Asuka without her knowing and call her last minute to inform her. And so, Asuka found herself back in.

Personality

Asuka has a strong sense of justice which causes her to take on a role of a vigilante. When she's not fighting in the most dangerous tournament in the world, she's known to roam around dangerous districts of Osaka to break up fights or even cause them if need be. Asuka carries herself with confidence and often provokes her opponents to go all out.

Appearance

Asuka's classic outfit has her wearing a race queen outfit with reflective light blue bodysuit unzipped almost all the way, blue crop top, fingerless gloves, and high boots. After that, the second most common outfit sees Asuka in a traditional Japanese archery outfit that includes kyudogi jacket and hakama pants. In Tekken 7, she received a slight redesign, now wearing jean shorts, a silk shirt with an unbuttoned top, and a red crop top underneath.

Gameplay

Asuka shines when keeping the opponent a comfortable distance away and capitalizing on her strong keep-out moves and whiff punishment. Should she get up close, Asuka has one of the best reversals in the game and a variety of evasive moves that can allow her to score a counter hit and lead into very damaging combos. Achieving a good knockdown can be a massive momentum gain for Asuka as she can lead it into her powerful okizeme and viable ki-charge setups. 

She does have some serious flaws, however. Her jab is one of the worst in the game and doesn't have guaranteed followups which seriously hurts her potential for whiff punishing shorter, quicker moves. Her offense outside of scoring counter hits is also lacking, as Asuka doesn't have many good ways of opening people up. She tends to struggle against defensive players.
