- "You were pretty good."
Asuka Kazama is a character from the Tekken series who was first introduced in Tekken 5 and has since then returned for all subsequent releases. She is mostly known to be a relative of the series protagonist and lead character, Jin Kazama.
Asuka has short dark brown hair and brown eyes. Asuka's default outfit is a blue halter top and blue short shorts, with matching gauntlets and lightly armored boots.
Asuka is brash, and a very arrogant person. Though, her profile states that she breaks up fights regularly, she seems to have no qualms about fighting herself and even seemingly revels in it. In her story mode, after defeating her target, Feng Wei, she decides to remain in the tournament in order to "have fun". Her pre and post-match quotes also demonstrate her confidence. As stated in her Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection prologue, Asuka is also known as being a "nosy kid" who likes to solve other people's problems, "usually by knockout".
Ever since she was a child, Asuka had received training in Kazama Style Traditional Martial Arts from her father at her father's dojo. Born with a strong sense of justice, Asuka was well known around Osaka for breaking up fights in the neighborhood.
Asuka came home one day to find that an unknown Chinese man had destroyed the dojo, and put Asuka's father in the hospital. An Interpol detective from Hong Kong came to investigate the incident, mentioning that the suspect likely to enter The King of Iron Fist Tournament. Upon hearing this, Asuka decides that she will also enter the tournament. During the tournament, she defeated Lili, and discovered that Feng Wei was the culprit behind the attack on her father's dojo, but to her dismay, he was nowhere to be found. The tournament ended, she returned to her calm and normal life disappointed.
However, her life didn't stay peaceful for long, as Asuka discovered that Jin Kazama was responsible for the war going on throughout the world (not knowing that he is doing it out of good intentions). She enters The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 in order to defeat Jin. When the tournament was over, Asuka returned to school to find Lili had transferred to her school.
- "Is that all you've got for me? I got plenty more gas in my tank!"
- It is commonly established that Asuka is Jin's cousin, which she was referred to in Tekken 6/Bloodline Rebellion and Street Fighter X Tekken. However, according to Harada (on his Twitter account), they are not really cousins.
- Asuka is similar and often compared to Sakura (and vice-versa), said Street Fighter character has also Asuka's school outfit as her Swap Costume.
