Oh, doh. I thought these might be tournament names instead.

...still, I guess it's not impossible if Leroy continues his dominance in the game. Unless Tekken's answer to Sagat (whose name I cannot hope to write down correctly) is even more broken on release.

Personaly think he's really boring. The team must agree since they ditched him.

The funny thing is they keep taking aspects of Bruce's character and giving them to other characters.

Bryan is an American kickboxer who like Bruce clashed with Lei Wulong at some point.

Steve has Bruce's backstory of being an orphan and refusing to throw a fight causing a price to be put on his head. Also both have a connection to Lei.

Josie borrows some of Bruce's moves.

And now we Fahkumram whose fighting style and backstory of refusing to throw a fight mirror Bruce.

Hell, according to this interview with Katsuhiro Harada, the American segment of Namco's arcade division doesn't consider Bruce a true Muay Thai fighter.

Katsuhiro Harada: As far as martial arts we havenít done, Michael [Murray] always asks for Muay Thai. Bruce might have seemed like Muay Thai but his official setting was ĎKickboxingí and the reason for that was that at the time he was introduced, the American segment of our arcade division said Ďmost Westerners donít know what Muay Thai is, you canít call it Muay Thai, just say itís Kickboxingí, so thatís why the setting for Bruce is Kickboxing and not Muay Thai.

I mean, that's blatantly untrue given what Bruce's fighting style looks like.

Fahkumram's very Baki-like build replacing Bruce is doubly funny considering Keisuke Itagaki, Baki's mangaka, designed a muay thai costume for Bruce back in Tekken 5.

Eh. I'm digging the song the more I hear it.

And on a different note I was seeing a few "Leroy EVO 2020" comments around and didn't realize he'd become so... popular.
