I think that one of the fascinating aspects of Tekken 5 is the card customization feature. It's great seeing people put their card in and you get to see what stuff they've earned. Thanks to tekkencentral.com, we've gotten a sneak peak on some of the costumes. I just realized that each character has a "theme" to it, whether it be cultural, from entertainment, or just want Namco wants. Based on some discussions, looking through threads, and seeing what each character has, here's what I've come up with. Tell me what you guys think and what can be added to the list:

Anna Willams
1P-
2P-

Asuka Kazama
1P-Volleyball player
2P-

Baek Doo San
1P-
2P-Teacher

Bruce Irvin
1P-Tong Po (from the Kickerboxer movie with Jean Claude Van Damme, but it's speculative)
2P-

Bryan Fury
1P-Soldier
2P-Riot Gear Cop/Terrorist

Christie Monteiro
1P-Gypsy
2P-Carnivale Dancer

Craig Marduk
1P-Viking, Vale Tudo Champion
2P-Pirate, Gangster

Devil Jin
1P-
2P-

Feng Wei
1P-Shaolin Monk
2P-Chinese Gangster

Hwoarang
1P-
2P-Rockstar

Jack 5
1P-Farmer Jack
2P-Terminator

Jin Kazama
1P-Metrosexual?
2P-

Julia Chang
1P-Indian
2P-Cowgirl

Kazuya Mishma
1P-Yakuza Gangster
2P-Devil

King
1P-Wrestler (can wear various masks pretty much)
2P-

Kuma
1P-
2P-

Lee Chaolan
1P-Rockstar/Cowboy
2P-James Bond, Magician

Lei Wulong
1P-Kung Fu Master
2P-Policeman
(By chance, do Lei's outfits refer to any of his past movies?)

Ling Xiayou
1P-XGamer
2P-
Start-Schoolgirl (not customizable)

Marshall Law
1P-
2P-Chef, Kato

Nina Williams
1P-Death by Degrees
2P-Kill Bill (Uma Thurman and Elle Driver Nurse)

Paul Phoenix
1P-
2P-Biker

Raven
1P-Blade
2P-Power Ranger (get the red outfit with the robot eyes then judge for yourself), Hanzo Hattori (Samurai Shodown Series), Shinobi

Roger
1P-
2P-
(for you guys in Australia, I recall a show with a kangaroo as the main character doing all sorts of stuff, similar to Flipper the Dolphin out here in the states. Perhaps his items will be similar to this character...)

Steve
1P-Olympian Boxer
2P-

Wang Jinrey
1P-Pai Mei
2P-

Yoshimitsu
1P-Predator
2P-Gemna Henchmen (Onimusha Videogame series)

Cool idea. Don't forget to add viking warrior to Craig's 2p. Mixed Martial Arts champion (or Vale Tudo champ) could go under Craigs 1p.

And right now, I'm trying to get Craig's 2p knit cap. I'm hoping it's a black skull cap or beanie, if so you can add gangsta Craig to 2p (he's in all black, eye patch, and a beanie would just make him a thug flat out )

And Bruce has the long ponytail like Tong Po...?...

Do you know sport exactly? Perhaps there's a sport in Japan that we're not aware of that dictates to her dress style.

Hmm I almost think that Bryan's 2P outfit should double for a terrorist with that Ski-Mask since I don't know of any police that where snake leather pants.

Ravens P2 default costume uncannily resembles (In both color and style)that of Sega's Joe Musashi from Super Shinobi 2 and Shadow Dancer for the Sega Genesis/Megadrive.

Am I the only person disappointed by this 'theme' take on character customisation? Surely it should be up to us as individuals what theme we want to go for, but the items so far seem to push us toward a particular theme for each character.

On Lee's Tux+Mask+Rapier combo...

Actually, someone hit the nail almost squarely on the head with that one when they mentioned Tuxedo Mask. In many anime and games, the mysterious masked western "bandit" swordsman is a recurrent theme.

In Bushido Blade 2, there was one char called Highwayman who had a black tux, white mask, greenish blonde Lee hair and a rapier. Had a cape, too, but that would be overkill for Lee.

Point is, Tuxedo Mask is actually an anime archetype, which is probably what Lee's Tux custom items were based off of.

For JACK-5, he's also got the GI Joe thing going, with the Sarge hat, bazooka and missile launchers on his legs.
