Ling Xiaoyu
Difficulty – Medium

Ling is an okizeme monster. Although okizeme has been nerfed in Tekken 7, she still retains that aspect of her character. She has a strong poking game with tons of poke lows for various situations including hugely + hit, a ranged CH launcher and a heavy hitting low in her stance. Her stance Art Of Phoenix (AOP) allows her to evade a lot of moves and offense from your opponent reducing their moveset by a lot depending on the character. She’s a character for lab monsters. Her small hitbox along with her evasive stance can make her extremely hard to approach especially with her main mid poke going under highs. She has a very strong Rage Drive from Backturned stance that acts as a low launcher making her mixup game scarier than before. She does however have poor reach on her jabs as her limbs are short; meaning she can struggle to punish certain moves.
