««Lee Chaolan»»

After he betrayed Heihachi and sided with Kazuya at The King of Iron Fist Tournament 2, Lee was 
expelled from the Mishima Zaibatsu.

For quite sometime, thoughts of revenge consumed Lee.  Eventually, he realized that it was 
pointless to kill an old man who probably had only a few years left in his life at best.  With 
that realization, Lee distanced himself from fighting and moved to a mansion in the Bahamas to 
lead a solitary life.

One day, he discovered a huge sell-off of G Corporation’s stock online.  Lee’s intuition told 
him that something happened within the company.  His intuition was correct.  He hacked into 
their classified computer network and accessed their internal corporate communications.  Lee 
learned that the Mishima Zaibatsu attacked G Corporation and caused significant damage to their 
research facilities.

He also came across information that a new life form under development by the Mishima Zaibatsu 
would be completed by next year. In order to complete the life form, however, it appeared that 
they were missing a critical component...

Oddly enough, an announcement was made for The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4 around the same 
time.  Lee’s fading passion for fighting was rekindled - along with his resentment towards the 
Mishima clan.

In order to prevent the Mishima Zaibatsu from discovering his true identity, Lee signed up for 
the Tournament online under a false name.  As an additional measure to mask his identity, he 
dyed his gleaming silver hair purple.


Violet is a majority shareholder and the de facto leader of a manufacturer of humanoid robots.  
Apparently a fighter in his past, he lived a quiet life in a mansion in the Bahamas.  Bored by 
his career lifestyle, Violet decided to enter The King of the Iron Fist Tournament 4.

The senior executives in his company wrote this off as the mere diversions of a rich man.  In 
any event, there were no weaknesses in Violet's physique, forged by state of the art training 

There was another significant reason for his entrance in the tournament.

Violet believed that he could complete the ultimate fighting weapon based on his pursuit of 
developing advanced humanoids.  He believed in a utopian world where inorganic humanoids would 
carry out the will of their human masters.

But the tide of technology in the world favored biotechnology.  The Mishima Zaibatsu and 
Heihachi Mishima were part of this movement, seekers of unfathomable power through genetic 

Violet accelerated the development of a prototype humanoid for the tournament.  If the 
prototype could be completed in time, he could leverage this tournament as an excellent 
PR tool.  Violet's mind was filled with visions of him and his prototype dominating The King 
of the Iron Fist Tournament 4.

                                  -=¤§Bridging the Gap§¤=-


As Tekken Tag had gained enough notoriety, predictable clues show that Tekken 4 have been 
uncovered.  News arise about Dean Earwicker's name change, Marduk's debut, and Monteiro's 
unending search for Eddy.  The main plot announces Kazuya's resurrection but no sign of Lee.  
Hoping for Lee's return might have been too optimistic and I felt like giving up.  Weeks have 
passed and there came Violet.  His moves resembles Lee's and he's not bad so I decided to go 
on playing Tekken 4.  Combot became the next release character and Lee really showed up.  
And there came back my passion for Tekken.

Well what can I say? If Lee is not the most improved character in Tekken 4, he maybe one of 
the most well-developed character in this installment.  A lot of his moves could now be 
linked to Hitman Stance and his Mist Step became more functional for both offense and 
defense.  He's got a sidestep command that hits mid and there rose my personal 
favorite -- the Acid Rain Combo.  Another interesting move of Lee is the versatility of the 
Mist Trap which will connect even if it hits the opponent; moreover, it could now be utilized 
in spicing up your combos to maximize Lee's fighting style with finesse.

In this section, you will find the basics of Tekken and of this FAQ.  It will help you 
understand the terms, symbols, acronyms, etc. that you will encounter throughout the course 
of this FAQ.

                                   -=¤§Move Analysis§¤=-

The moves that were only included in this section were the ones that I believe will be 
significant in the gameplay and/or may need some clarifications about the properties etc.

««Knee Driver»»
It's all right even if Lee's Knee Driver isn't a launcher like Law's.  What's important is 
that you could execute your throws unexpectedly.  You could fake your opponent by delaying the 
Knee Driver in such a manner that you buffer as f,N,f+3+4.  It's like performing a Mist Step 
immediately followed by a throw - the remaining f+3+4.

««Double Punch - Mist Step»»
This move is obviously effective in juggles preferrably keeping your opponent in mid air.  I 
don't usually advice people to use this move when your opponent's feet is on the ground because 
it could easily be ducked.  I guess there's a better option.

««Double Punch - Violet Kick»»
In Tekken Tag, I used to do 1,F+2,2,2 after a blocked hit which only gives me a few frames of 
advantage.  But there a problem exists.  Sometimes, my opponents could block the last 
right punch and retaliate with a FC or WS move.  It definitely bugs me a lot.  With the 
Violet Kick appearing in Tekken 4, I changed my comeback move.  It's definitely less dangerous 
than my old move because Violet Knuckle Combo ends in a high range and the Violet Kick deals a 
greater amount of damage.  Another property of the Violet Kick is that it could be linked to 
Hitman Stance and guaranteed after a bump on the wall by a 1+3~f.  In addition, this kick could 
be upgraded to the Silver Rain.  Though it requires just frame timing, it decreases 
opponent's lifebar by 10 points more.  And still, it can be chained with a Hitman Stance.  
Lastly, they all connect on a counterhit including the last hit which ends in the midsection.

««Jab - Acid Rain Combo»»
I consider this more of the real Acid Rain Combo than the f+3:3:3 because the former is 
definitely more useful and more efficient.  This one's my personal favorite.  It's 8-frame 
fast and you could have full control of this flashy move once you have practiced it well.  
Once you have seen that the jab and the first kick was blocked, you could stop at the second 
kick which only has a -8 which implies a much safer kick than the first and the last kick.  
Opponent will be smacked by a crumple fall stun on hit.  And above all else, this menacing 
move is perfect on counterhit.

««Left & Right Violet Screw»»
It's a good news to Lee that he could link his various moves with the Hitman Stance.  His 
Violet Screws could now be considered a safer one.  I use this when Hwoarang does his Flamingo 
Stance and keeps on sidestepping until I lose my axis on him.  If he sidesteps right, I face 
him my left screw and vice versa.  Now it could be linked with Hitman Stance, you could more 
or less be safer and block a retaliating move in case your opponent has anticipated your move, 
ducks and do a WS move.

««Schwartz Rose Hook»»
Like I have mentioned earlier, as he sees you sidestep, he could assume that you'll do a 
Violet Screw so he might just duck or whatsoever.  My point is quite simple Violet Screws hit 
high and this slamming move hits mid.  I feel like doing Marduk's b+1 while doing this.  The 
stun looks cool.

««Side Kick»»
This is another move which I have underestimated.  Maybe I just don't give enough attention to 
this until it became a special move.  Lee lifts up his left foot up to the midsection in a 
more sideward manner compared to the d/f+3 in TTT.  Therefore, it serves as an anti-sidestep 
in its littlest fashion and a good interruptor too.  It keeps the attacking opponent distant 
to you with a simple gut stun specially on counterhit.  This becomes handy after a sidestep 
or a sway.

««Split Axe Kick»»
I included this move in this list because of its beauty in guard break.  He will be hit with a 
Blazing Kick as he dashes backwards, tripped by the Delayed Dragon Slide as he turtles, and be 
striken by some aggressive move like Shredder, Soviet Kick Combo, or like f,N,u/f+4.

««Dragon Slide»»
This is another of Law's components that is useful to Lee.  Link the Dragon Slide after tech 
roll (any button for tech roll~D, d/f,d,d/f+3) or after the Hitman Stance (3+4~D,d/f,d,d/f+3).  
You could also slide low (d,d/f,d,d/f...) as you go near the opponent and mix him up with 
either Tsunami Kick or the Dragon Slide.

««Mist Wolf Kick»»
This move itself is a some sort of preconstructed custom string in itself.  Here are some of 
your options which I believe that would enhance your tricky & poking gameplay.  You could just 
buffer b+3 and delay the 2nd which makes up the combo (<3).  Your opponent might think that 
nothing follows your 1st Mist Wolf attack.  It's quite deluding if you exaggerate the delay.  
When your opponent anticipates that you would delay the 2nd kick, you position Lee into Hitman 
Stance in a surprising act, or you could even just do the b+3 and follow it with another move 
or none at all.  It's all about doing the ones that your opponent doesn't expect.  I don't 
consider it a guessing game, it's more of a psychological concept.

««Mist Trap»»
Here maybe the 3rd or 4th option to your Mist Wolf strings.  Well, at least this is less 
difficult than Acid Rain Combo.  This move is best for the turtles especially when they don't 
know how to duck.  For the experts, again, execute it at the most unexpected time.  Mist Trap 
could now connect even though your opponent has not blocked the move; in fact, it could be 
already performed in juggles.

««Silver Low - Head Kick - Violet Hammer»»
This is the improved version of Silver Low - Head Kick - Feint Hammer back in Tekken Tag.  
A problem that I encounter before is that when I do this Feint Hammer, I sometimes miss b+3 so 
I end up another Head Kick so I easily get juggled.  This time, you don't have to buffer the 
joystick to get a hammer.

««Tsunami Kick & Infinite Starters»»
I usually use this move right after a tech roll and maybe successfully blocking a low hit.  
In what I have observed, all of those 3 hits will connect on a counterhit.  I paired the 
Tsunami Kick with an Infinite Starter off to indicate the efficiency when a counterhit comes 
along or just letting your opponent block the Tsunami Kick and make him guess with a mid or 
low hit with an Infinite Starter.

If you think there's no much use for Shredder now because of the presence of the 
Soviet Kick Combo, think again.  This one's got better damage, less recovery time, and Lee 
leaps higher.  The Shredder's damage is 20,15 while the Soviet's is just 10,16.  Your opponent 
could at least poke you after blocking Lee's Shredder while moves such as Jin's 1+2 will 
connect after a blocked Soviet Kick Combo.  In juggles, it depends on the kinds of risers and 
combos prior to the finale - either the Shredder or the Soviet Kicks.  When your opponent is 
on mid-air, it's preferrable to use the Shredder when your opponent is near and at a relatively 
high range.  Use the latter for distanced opponents and located at a low mid-air range 
specially for moves that could be linked to a Mist Step.

««Delayed Dragon Slide»»
One of Lee's stealth attacks, plus the fact that he's got a Dragon Slide, this one's a silent 
bomber.  Unlike the Dragon Slide, you don't have to duck before execution.  Slow but slick, 
passive but polished.  Could be linked with moves requiring a guard break when blocked and 
moves with quick recoveries.  Moreover, it could even increase its delay when you buffer it as 
f,N,f,N+3+4 similar to the Knee Driver.

««Machine Gun Kicks»»
This is one of the fastest kicks in Tekken - an 11-frame triple high kick.  I usually utilize 
this move as a finale for juggles when the opponent gets hit on walls specially when I perform 
that 1,2~f,N several times as my opponent approaches the wall.  If you notice, the 
Machine Gun Kicks doesn't always work when you bring your opponent to the wall because there 
has to be a certain timing in such a manner that your opponent will not make a wall tech be 
available for him.  When the distance gap between you and the wall might be too far to do the 
4,4,4 and maybe too near right after you Mist Step and he will be able to wall tech, I buffer 4 
for the Violet Kick or the Silver Rain Kick to take effect.  Put Lee in Hitman Stance if 
desired.  A well-developed Lee necessitates the skill of timing.

««Laser Edge - Violet Spin Hammer»»
I've been wishing for a move like this and it was a blessing when it came true.  One of 
Lee's arsenal which I apply is his Laser Edge - Shaolin Spin Kicks because it does give some 
damage when it counterhits.  I believe that the point for including the Violet Spin Hammer is 
to Lee's safety.  Perhaps Namco have realized that Lee has too many moves ending up in a high 
move and/or ending up with an irritating recovery time.  Adopted from d+3,3,b+3 in Tekken Tag, 
a mid-ranged hammer requiring a guard break when blocked was developed with the joystick 
unnecessary to buffer it backwards.  I advise you not to use 4,3,3 without a Laser Edge as 
your primary attack.  The reason for this is to make your opponent to consume at least your 
d+4,N+4,3 on counterhit and in case he blocks your hammer, the remaining left kick to be 
buffered, you'll be more or less unharmed with a retaliating assault due to its special 
property; in fact, you might even be able to dizzy him up by follwing some quick moves up.

««Soviet Kick Combo»»
Like what I have mentioned earlier, the Shredder and the Soviet Kick Combo has its own 
distinct functions.  Mixing your opponent up as you Mist Step will give you the option to 
proceed with either a f,N,f+3+4 ("delayed" Knee Driver) or a 3,4 (Soviet Kick Combo).  On the 
other hand, the Shredder will help you encounter with quick and distanced attacks which will 
most likely to misfire your opponent's move.  Yes, its possible to link Shredder right after 
the Mist Step (f,N,f~N+3,4) but even the slightest frame gap would be to your disadvantage.  
I guess this comparison would be a clearer example.

I have included the possible combos which I think that a player will most likely use in his 
gameplay.  The column '# of hits' refers to the total number of hits in a combo inclusive of 
the riser.  Calculating for the damage was based on how Tekken Tag was computed.  I believe 
that this will relatively measure the intensity of one combo with another.  The computation for 
this column also includes the damage of the riser; therefore, this column shows the total 
damage dealt to the opponent.  The 'Difficulty' column was based on a beginner to intermediate 
Lee player.  Results may vary.  Also, please take note of some footnotes indicated within this

²Since the launcher itself is undeniably arduous, I just based the difficulty as far as the 
 combos are concerned.
³Since the number of hits vary, I summed up the number of Machine Gun Kicks and the number of 
 times the opponent would hit the wall because damage would also be dealt to an opponent 
 when one gets hit after a basic juggle hit.

                                -=¤§Custom Strings & Analysis§¤=-

These are some of the strings that I find effective in beating most characters.  I consider 
these strings for long-run purposes because they're relatively cumbersome to counter 
because they actually induce mind games for your opponent as a player.  I am not 
generalizing that all of these strings are effective for all characters.  Nevertheless, I 
have placed in another section regarding the adjustments that will involve in tailoring 
your offense and defense in fighting against different characters.  Please do not limit 
yoursevles with these strings because there might be efficient custom strings left 

««Sidestep Chain (SSC)»»
                1,2,4:4 [b+3<3]
                        [f,f] b+3[<3]
        +1+2 [d,d/f+4]

This would be your main string.  It's advisable to specifically sidestep to the right to 
evade most of your opponent's moves specially when counterattacking.  Your main footwork 
would be a snake wave to intimidate your opponent at the same time misdirecting his axis.  
There are 2 options: ending your snake wave by sidestepping or with a Mist Step.  If you 
end with a SSR, you could do either a Rear Cross Punch or a Schwartz Rose Hook.  If you end 
with a Mist Step, you'd go for a Soviet Kick.

If you did a Rear Cross punch, it should more or less hit and continue with a guaranteed 
1,2,4:4 or a 1,2~f,N if you want to deceive your opponent more.  You could either do a Knee 
Driver when he turtles, do a Delayed Dragon Slide if he's good at escaping throws 
(but it's really quite rare to escape a throw right after getting hit), or fake him by 
dashing forwards and doing a Mist Wolf Kick or two.

You only perform the Schwartz Rose Hook when your opponent attempts to crouch during your 
snake wave.  If it connects as a counterhit, a Silver Tail is guaranteed.

A Soviet Kick works better not finishing it (doing the 4 in f,N~3,4) because you could 
make him fall for a better trap.  If he usually attempts to retaliate right after that move, 
a Side Kick would be a good option.  If he usually turtles, it's advisable to continue with 
a Head Kick and delay your Violet Hammer.  Again, a counterhit would make your opponent 
open again for another Silver Tail.

««Low Poke Chain (LPC)»»

This interrupt is one of the most important moves in all of the Tekken installments.  Good 
thing Lee can make a mixup out of this simple attack.  Deciding whether to use Tsunami Kicks 
or Silver Tail depends on how your opponent reacts after your d/b+1.  If your opponent 
turtles, Silver Tail will gradually damage him somehow.  If he interrupts, right after your 
d/b+1, do the Tsunami Kicks plus the mixup of either Step In Kick Infinite Starter or a 
Silver Low Infinite Starter.  If your Tsunami Kicks connect, do a Silver Low and a Rave 
Kick, if I'm not mistakened, they're guaranteed.  By the way, if you have low poked your 
opponent and he blocks it while he's crouching, I suggest you don't do any string because 
more often than not, he'll do a WS move.  Well, Tsunami Kicks could still be an option but 
it's a little more risky this time.

««Double Punch Chain (DPC)»»
        d/f+1 - MPC
        ~B [u/f+4]

I could consider this as the next starter after the Rear Cross Punch.  Perhaps d/f+1 would 
be the most practical move after this one.  The purpose of immediately halting Lee's Mist Step 
is to fake your opponent making him think that you're done with your strings but you suddenly 
counterattack with a Violet Knee.  There is the element of surprise with this string.  Don't 
abuse it too much because your opponent will be able to anticipate it better.

««Violet Knuckle Chain (VKC)»»
        d/f+1 - MPC (when hit)
        d/b+1 - LPC (when blocked)

Since some people usually wait for Lee's 1,2 and then interrupt with a d/b+1 assuming that 
Lee would do a Mist Step, this would make them think twice.  When 1,F+2,2 connects, d/f+1 
is safe to barge in and then link it with the MPC.  If 1,F+2,2 gets blocked, d/b+1 would be 
the safest move though it's still quite a risk because a blocked 1,F+2,2 would give you a -6.  
But only a few players react to that.

««Mid Poke Chain (MPC)»»
                        [f,f] b+3[<3]
        1,F+2,2 - VKC

This is another essential move quite reasonable to abuse.  After d/f+1 was blocked, check 
whether you're in a sweep distance or close distance with your opponent.  If you think 
that when your opponent tries to interrupt with a d/b+1 will whiff, consider it sweep 
distance; otherwise, it's close and you'll be needing more pokes to damage him.  At sweep 
distance, perform the Laser Edge, Violet Spin Hammer more often because it's really 
burdensome to make your opponent to crouch.  On close distance, I'd suggest you use the 
1,2~f,N more often because it is more probable that your opponent will attempt to retaliate 
after your d/f+1.  The purpose of the 1,F+2,2 is just as the same as the 1,F+2,2 in the VKC.

««Hitman Chain (HMC)»»
        [~D] N+2

Among the other strings, you might notice that none of the strings were linked to a Hitman 
Stance.  But in any case, I just put this one to indicate some advisable strings that could 
be linked during HMS.  There are two common ways in which how your opponent reacts when a 
Lee opponent goes to HMS.  One is to interrupt right away hoping that his attack would get 
in first.  Another is to turtle and may even dash backwards.  If you think your opponent 
tends to counterattack, do a Scatter Blow for a possible juggle.  You can even crouch first 
before doing it for further deception.  If otherwise, you intimidate your opponent by 
sliding low and doing either a mid/low mixup with a Dragon Slide or a Quick Catapult.  
If you have decided to execute the latter, bring it back to HMS when blocked and you can 
repeat the whole process.

                                  -=¤§Poking & Defense§¤=-

I think this is where Lee's subtance is -- poking.  His poking may not be as annoying as 
Nina's but Lee's poking will lead to turpitude.  Those little mid and low quick kicks will 
surely demoralize your opponent.  I consider this as his intensive offense.  Since Lee has 
a poor stamina, it is a must to also concentrate on his defense arsenal.  There must be proper 
anticipation and presence of mind.  I call his defense as his stealth offense.  This section 
gathers, selects, and delineates the moves that could help in Lee's poking and defense game 
in order to immensely develop his offense.

Let's start off with my most basic poke.  I like to do the Laser Edge most of the time because 
it's 12 frames fast, relatively safe, and could be linked with various kick combos.  One of 
which is the Violet Spin Hammer.  Input that move when the opponent would probably attack 
you.  Besides, it's not that dangerous because of the guard break that the last kick gives.  
On the other hand, you could also use d/b+4 as another option for d+4.  This overlooked move 
has better reach and it recovers in crouched position so you could follow it up with WS+4~3.  
It a little bit dangerous to follow it up with FC+4 though because opponents tend to 
dash backwards and the Rising Kick is defenitely more useful because it's relatively fast 
and you could end it with the Hitman Stance.

The Mist Wolf kick is an excellent mid poker because it deals on players who usually crouch 
thinking you would give him a low hit.  This also works for executing it at an unexpected 
time.  I don't advice this to link it with a Hitman Stance nor complete it with the Mist Wolf 
Combo because it would add a little danger from your recovery time.  This avoidance of the 
continuation with the Mist Wolf Kick only applies with Lee's poking game.  Lee's one of his 
most cunning moves is his 3<3.  Your opponent will probably think that you have committed a 
mistake by buffering the Head Kick but he then realizes that you did that on purpose when you 
delay that Hammer Kick again which causes your opponent's face splat on the floor.  This is 
also useful when you actually made a mistake in performing a move involving the left kick.  
More often than not, your mistake will end up with a Head Kick so you might as well be 
productive out of your unforced error.

There would be two moves that could be used when opponent tries to attack you from sweep 
distance -- The Extended Rising Kick and the Standing Kick.  The former would be more 
effective if you use this when your opponent is trying to attack you from orbit to sweep 
distance.  This time you follow it up with a Hitman Stance because it's safer in that case.  
The uppercut is a classical move specially when your opponent tries to attack you at a fairly 
close distance.  Your opponent gets a special aching animtaion and gets knocked down on 
counterhit.  In short, use d/f+4~3 when your opponent about to attack you and use d/f+2 
if your opponent is bombarding you with short-ranged attacks.

I don't think I have the right words to express the importance of this move because this could 
be Lee's most important move.  Any move that Lee had blocked which gives the opponent beyond 
8 frames of disadvantage will give you the prestige to retaliate with that glorious 1,2,4.  
Don't delay it and don't link it with Hitman Stance.  My objective for this is to attempt 
for a Silver Rain Kick.  It's quite safe if you fail performing the Silver Rain Kick so long 
as there's an assurance that you have blocked a move beyond 8 frames of disadvantage and you 
have buffered 1,2,4 with enough speed.  In addition, I sometimes do a Laser Edge after a 
successful 1,2,4.  This combo is also applicable for interrupting your opponent to get a 
counterhit but another move is more recommendable.  There may be times where you get more than 
8 frames of advantage on an attack you have blocked but you can't retaliate with a 1,2,4 nor 
1,2,4:4 because the reach of its jabs are short.  This is how the Mist Trap becomes so 
flexible that you'll surprise your opponent.  This move might be relatively slow but we should 
also consider the fact of its element of stupefaction.  Since it's a norm in Tekken that you 
won't get hit when blocked as far as no unblockable is concerned, Mist Trap culminates as a 
threat factor thinking that you have blocked this move and then the next thing you know is 
that your face meets the ground.

The Acid Rain Combo suits its job to threaten pitbull players to simmer them down a little 
bit. They can't just complacently attack you.  Shove them some Acid Rain Combo as Lee's one 
of his special interrupts to maximize your counterhit attacks.  Analogous to the Mist Trap's 
function, the Rear Cross Punch also serves as a substitute for 1,3:3:3 because of poor 
reaching property.  Also, it's a good escape to opponents that bomabrd you with simple jabs 
which give them +1 advantage and as you try to interrupt, you get thrashed.  Performing a 
sidestep redirects your opponent's axis plus the input of 2 would redirect the axis a little 
bit more as you give your opponent some shot.

Here's a very essential function of the Violet Cutter: Lee drives his right foot in a 
centrifugal manner.  Lee ducks as he performs this so there's a capability to avoid high 
attacks in a more strategic way.  Moreover, there's a guaranteed Ship Slicer when you hit 
your opponent and end up in Hitman Stance.  This 15-frame Side Kick would be better described 
as relatively strong move which could be considered a second best after b+3 in mid poking.  
Despite its ability to refrain your opponent to sidestep particularly to the right as 
mentioned in the 'Move Analysis' section, it deregulates too much movement from your 
opponent.  You could follow up a low hit specially on counterhit because it causes your 
opponent to throb due to the hit making it appear like the Silver Rain Kick using the 
left foot.  Allow me to draw the line between the two anti-sidestep moves - b,b+4 is for 
those who attack you as they sidestep big time and d/f+3 is for those who try to redirect 
your axis.

The best poker for any player would be the Basic Low Poke.  For Lee's case, it's d/b+1 because 
some characters have a special move executed when d/b+1 is buffered.  You might probably ask, 
"Why not d+1?"  In Tekken, the less risky the moves would be, the better.  There will always 
be a room for errors and there will always be a chance, no matter how rare would it occur, 
that you buffered a d+1 and you would see your character do a sidewalk.  you wouldn't want 
that to happen.  What we're just trying to do is lessen your probability to get stumped.  
Remember, any expert would even commit the silliest mistakes.  As I was saying, you could 
almost interrupt almost every move that you encounter.  It halts wave dashes, WS moves after 
the Basic Low Poke, some quick strings, setups, and many more overlooked chances.  Well, if 
there's anything that Lee's d/b+1 cannot reach, the Silver Whip will accomplish.  This move 
is one of the most rapid kicks in Tekken installments.  I consider this as Lee's d/b+1 in 
sweep distance.

When you defend against a low attack.  The two most common responses that you would do is to 
block low or parry.  These two have distinct functions for each.  You basically block low 
when you know that that move will stagger and you parry when it will not stagger when blocked 
low.  After blocking a staggered opponent's low attack, you could do either a WS+4~3 or 
u/f,N+4 depending on the B Adv your opponent had suffered.  When you parry, you either do an 
U/F+4 or a throw depending on the reach.  [Come on!  It's not cheap to throw sometimes.  You 
deserve it somehow after you parry.  It's not that easy to parry you know.]  If you have 
parried or have low blocked at nothing, you could either do FC pokes such as FC,D/B+4 or 

To put Lee's poking & defense moves in a nutshell, we have the following:

Low Pokers
d/b+4 [WS+4~3]

Mid & High Pokers


Short B Adv Retaliator



Best Pokers

Defense on Low Attacks

Options After a Successful Low Block

Options After a Successful Parry

These are some of the tips in getting efficient with Lee's moves.  It is really important to 
be aware what move to execute at any given situation.  Remember that a well-developed Lee 
needs a well-developed offense and that this offense relies on his poking abilities and 
defensive skills.


Okizeme may be referred before as keeping your opponent on the ground.  But since Tekken 4 
featured walls in this gameplay, I consider this more of an art of attacking your opponent 
to disallow his full recovery from the ground and from walls.  Only the most common Get Up 
Techniques are displayed.  You use the appropriate moves depending on the range and distance.
You could check Section 2 for the differentation of the three different distances under the

#5 The Silver Heel is considered effective for okizeme since it could be executed for 
   unpredictable retaliations from your opponent on the ground.  If your opponent tries to 
   retaliate, you might get a bounce juggle from your opponent.  If your opponent stays on
   the ground, a Hitman Stance will be very versatile for your preparation in your okizeme.

                                      -=¤§Versus Mode§¤=-

This section is a relative tailoring of how to defend against a specific character by using 
Lee.  I would consider this section a little bit more generalized because some tactics could 
also be used by other characters such as techniques as when to poke, when to sidewalk, etc.  
This includes all of the techniques I know because some may be unaware of one technique and 
some may know another.  It is not conclusive that the techniques mentioned in this section 
to be the most effective for all but it is based upon my common experience in challenging 
the good players I have encountered.

««Jin Kazama»»

As Jin was announced to be the first-release character, I became eager to venture on his new 
moves with the knowledge of his move list.  It was quite convincing that Jin was more 
difficult to to duel with back in Tekken Tag.  His Electric Wind Hook Fist (f,N,d,d/f+2) 
doesn't juggle anymore regardless the kind of hit his opponent will face and his Lingering 
Soul Omen won't do much.  He's still a threat though, but all he could possibly do was 
those mid and low mixups.  Soon, I finally realized that his revitalized Traditional Karate 
was not a regret for unlearning Mishima-ryu Style after all.  That Laser Scraper Just Frame 
was something to quiver.  It eventually became the Jin users' favorite and winning factor 
that it removes almost half of the opponent's life with just a simple juggle.  Not only 
that, Jin's parries almost every move [including Marduk's head butt] that it's a sure 2,4 
when he parries the opponent's last move in a combo.  In other words, Jin turned out to 
have the safest, easiest, and strongest moves in this installment.

a) Twin Thrusts - Inner Axe (1,2,3)
     --> Double Punch - Silver Rain Kick (1,2,4:4)

Jin pulls off good mixups right after this move.  This combo ends with an annoying guard break 
that allows a +3 for Jin.  Sidestepping would be an option but you might eat some Roundhouse 
if Jin does a 1,2,4 instead.  Since the last moves animates Jin to raise his left foot first 
before it reaches you, it is interruptable.  As soon as you see Jin performing his first 
punches, counterattack with your 1,2,4:4.  It may be difficult at first, but you'd get used 
to it as you practice.

Other applicable move(s):
• Axe Kick - Lead Thrust - Vertical Kick (f,f+3, 1,3~3)

b) Final Upper Thrust (WS+2)
     --> Double Punch - Silver Rain Kick (1,2,4:4)

This is his most effective blockable juggle riser.  Well, allow me to cite the obvious.  It 
takes 12 frames to recover when blocked and your 1,2,4:4 is guaranteed.

Other applicable move(s):
• Needle Shrine Scraper (b,f+2,1,d+2)

c) Needle Shrine Gates (b,f+2,1:D+2)
     --> SWR

Like most people, this might be the reason why most people find it cumbersome to defeat Jin.  
The last move of this three-hit-combo hurts a lot.  It only takes at least two of these to 
take a round away from you.  Some players come up with different solutions but may not be 
applicable for certain situations.  For example, a Quick Silver Sting would be a very 
effective counterattack but what if your opponent decides not to do the just frame one and 
does not delay either?  A sidestep would be nice but what are the odds that you would 
sidestep again believing that would be able to escape that trap again?  Concerning all of 
those kinds of situations, there must be only one move that would be applicable enough to 
escape all of those.  Sidewalking to the right is a very good tactic in avoiding Jin's 
last hit.  Allow me to prove to you that it would be applicable in all cases.  Let us 
determine first the possible cases that evolve around this cunning move: (1) He could go 
for the unblockable, just frame move.  (2) He'd go all the way doing the b,f+2,1,d+2 
without any just frame nor any delay.  (3) You take a normal hit with Jin's first two 
gut punches.  (4) You take a counterhit with Jin's first two gut punches.  With 
sidewalking to the right, the easiest to escape is the first case but the second would 
be tougher.  Once you see Jin doing the Needle Shrine, pull the joystick right away in such a 
manner that Lee will sidewalk to the right.  It's safe to pull the joystick in advance even 
before the second punch succeeds because of the freeze window that Lee experiences.  It's 
advisable to do the sidewalking at that estimated time in order to register the move as a 
sidewalk.  There would be a lesser chance to pull off a successful sidewalk after Jin's second 
attack.  Same thing goes for the second case.  It would add a little difficulty compared to 
the first case because there's no delay doing the last punch.  Nevertheless, sidewalking to the 
right would be a consistent solution.  This also applies to the third case.  Regardless whether 
you get hit with the first two punches, the exact instructions for the first two cases would 
be applicable.  The last case would be a little more complicated because you have to tap 
forward as soon as you see Jin's b,f+2 hit as counterhit, then you do the sidewalking.  I know 
it's easier said than done but if you practice with a friend like requesting him to do Needle 
Shrine Gates throughout the entire match, you'll really get the hang of it.  They really sound 
difficult to execute but it will be a lot easier if you practice.  You've really got to spend 
time to master escaping these cases to bring you to a more certain position.  Phew!

Other applicable move(s):
• Needle Shrine Scraper (b,f+2,1,d+2)

d) Other Guidelines:
Be the pitbull.  Don't let Jin make you anticipate his moves.  Be ready with your mixups 
and be careful with his parries.  If he likes to parry, perform incomplete or safe 
moves.  Low poking is a key in duelling against Jin specially when he crouch dashes.  
Jin's mixups such as d/f+1,(4_4~4) would be fairly attainable to anticipate.

         in life.  My warmest thanks and my most caring love to you!

to the Lee players : Thank you for your unending support by posting on the forums and sharing 
                     your thoughts with what you have learned.  I do hope you keep on playing 
                     Tekken.  This is the only video game in the past few years I got hooked on.  
                     I wish to get to play with you in the coming weeks or onths.  To the Lee 
                     players in the Philippines, I'll be dropping by your places soon.
