Games

  • In the Street Fighter martial arts video game series, Chun-Li uses a variant of t'ai chi ch'uan.
  • Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance introduced Kenshi, a blind warrior who uses t'ai chi ch'uan as his primary fighting style. Kenshi is also seen practicing t'ai chi ch'uan forms in the ending credits after the single player arcade mode is completed. Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance also introduced Li Mei, who in her bio-card has her hands in a posture representing the symbol Taijitu and who uses a variant of t'ai chi ch'uan as well.
  • A closer variant of t'ai chi ch'uan is used by the Tekken character Ling Xiaoyu, introduced in Tekken 3 and Tekken Tag Tournament.
  • In Dead or Alive, Leifang uses t'ai chi ch'uan and this is also mentioned in her bio-card. Before fighting some of her opponents, Leifang gets ready by doing some t'ai chi ch'uan moves such as the 'immortal pounds mortar' one, so one could say that she uses Chen-style t'ai chi ch'uan in particular.
  • In the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime show and trading card game, t'ai chi ch'uan is used by the Tai Chi Fighter Monkey, as it is mentioned in his bio-card.
