Panda
 

BIO:

Panda is cared for at Ling Xiaoyu's high school. To participate in the tournament, Xiaoyu moved to the Mishima Polytechnical School in Japan. Heihachi taught Panda "Advanced Bear Fighting" so that she could act as a bodyguard for Xiaoyu during the tournament. Although Kuma is fond of Panda, Panda dislikes him and keeps her distance.

After the last Tournament, Panda accompanied Ling back to Mishima High School. Since then, Panda spent her days training with Xiaoyu. On some days, she wondered (just a little) about the whereabouts of Kuma, who disappeared after the Tournament. One day, two years after the Tournament, Xiaoyu, lost in her thoughts, told Panda about the announcement for The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4. After hearing Xiaoyu's concerns about the Tournament and the Mishima Zaibatsu, Panda made up her mind to become Xiaoyu's bodyguard once again.

Panda took part in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 in the form of Xiaoyu's bodyguard. Panda was relieved to learn Heihachi Mishima still lived, but only briefly... her moment of relief past by quickly without notice with the sudden announcement of the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6. Bound by duty, Panda finds herself once again propelled into harms way.

I guess one bear in Tekken just wasn't enough huh? Ohh well, everyone loves Panda bears right?! Panda was a clever "alternate" skin for Kuma in Tekken 3, and later in Tekken 4 was actually given a storyline in the series. Namco demonstrates yet again that animals and Tekken can coexist peacefully... or something to that effect. lol.

For some reason or another, I feel that Kuma has more personality and is a bit more effective in the series... probably because he's the original bear in the Tekken series (and fighting games). Personally I like Kuma better, but Panda is just as fun to watch.
