Lei Fei


Lei-Fei is a monk from China. He entered the tournament to kill Lau Chan on orders; however, he also has a secret agenda. He fights with Shaolin-Ken. During the ancient days in China, one emperor declared that all powerful martial art techniques shall be banned. This decree was done with the intention of ensuring that no one shall possess a more powerful technique than the emperor himself. The emperor also saw to the deaths of anyone who was capable of powerful techniques. He created a clan whose sole duty is to capture and kill anyone with such powerful capabilities. The Tiger Swallow Fist was one such skill that was banned by the emperor during that age. While no emperor exists in modern China, the clan that was created still exists. When informed of the Tiger Swallow Fist's appearance in the world tournament, they decided to send Lei to stop Lau from using the Tiger Swallow Fist. Lei accepted this mission as he saw it as a chance to test his skills against the mighty Tiger Swallow Fist. However, Lei intends to kill Lau after he has learned Tiger Swallow Fist from Lau.

I'm surprised it took all the way until Virtua Fighter 4 for a through-and-through, traditional Shaolin Monk to appear in a major hand-to-hand fighting game. The wait was certainly worth it, because Lei Fei has one of the most fluid and authentic fighting styles to ever appear in a fighting game. He's definitely one of the more intricate and dynamic Virtua Fighter characters as far as fighting styles go, as he can attack from a variety of stylish stances. Lei Fei hits hard too, so he's naturally a badass. He's also got some awesome customization options... which adds some nice variety to the design. Lei Fei is easily one of my personal favorite VF characters.
