Wang Jinrei (王 椋雷 Wáng Liángléi; Japanese Pronunciation: ワン・ジンレイ Wan Jinrei) is a fighting game character who was introduced in the original Tekken game and has returned for every other Tekken game, except Tekken 3 and Tekken 4.
A master of Xing Yi Quan, Jinrei is an old man with whom bravery still runs strong, a practitioner of Shinirokugo-ken. He is a kindhearted individual who sympathizes with his fellow countrymen, is the head of overseas Chinese merchants. He was also a very close friend to Kazuya's deceased grandfather, Jinpachi Mishima. After Jinpachi's death, Jinrei fell under Heihachi's influence, but truth be told, he doesn't feel comfortable with Heihachi's conduct. In the first King of Iron Fist Tournament, Wang faced Marshall Law and the fight ended in a draw.
Jinpachi once told Wang, "To preserve peace, I must put an end to the Mishima bloodline." These were Jinpachi's last words to him. 30 years after Wang heard of Jinpachi's death, he received an invitation to the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. "I need your help. Come see me, Jinrei." The letter was signed "Jinpachi Mishima." A confused Jinrei says, "What? Jinpachi is alive?" Wang entered the tournament to see if his long-lost friend still lives.
Wang heard of the Mishima Family's cursed blood from his close friend, Jinpachi Mishima. Jinrei was utterly defeated in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 by Jin Kazama whose purpose was to wipe out the Mishima Family's cursed blood. However, the real chaos began when Jin Kazama assumed control of the Mishima Financial Group (MFG). Blaming his failure on his indifference, Jinrei lamented his lack of action. Once again, the King of Iron Fist is held, and with newfound purpose, Jinrei participates in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6.
Wang Jinrei is a brave old man with a kind heart. He continued to remain generous and kind while living as a recluse in the Mishima gardens. For many years, he was a close friend of Heihachi's father, Jinpachi Mishima. After Jinpachi's death, he put his faith in Heihachi. However, Wang soon realized that Kazuya and Heihachi were abusing and corrupting the Mishima Zaibatsu and did not approve. Wang later became Lee Chaolan's instructor and convinced him to help him bring honor back to the empire.
Wang fights using Xin Yi Liu He Quan.
