Emilie de Rochefort (エミリ・ド・ロシュフォール Emiri do Roshufōru?), commonly known as Lili (リリ Riri?) for short, is a character in the Tekken series. Along with Sergei Dragunov, Lili was one of the two new characters introduced in Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection.

A Monegasque high school student, Lili is a member of the De Rochefort Family. She is the daughter and only child of Mr. Rochefort, a wealthy oil magnate and head of Rochefort Enterprises. She resides in a luxurious suburban mansion with her father and their butler Sebastian.

Biography[]

Emilie ‘Lili’ de Rochefort is the daughter and only child of a wealthy Monegasque oil magnate. Given her privileged background, Lili had a pampered upbringing. Four years prior to the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, she was kidnapped and held captive for ransom. After a violent struggle, the girl broke free and engaged her abductor in combat. For Lili, defeating her kidnapper triggered passion for a new hobby.

Lili returned home, eager to pursue a career in martial arts. Yet her father disapproved of Lili's new interests; barred from attending the local savate studio, she had to settle for ballet and gymnastics...both of which figure prominently in her self-developed fighting system. She attended several street-fighting tournaments, under the pretense of going on vacation. During this period, the girl received an invitation to the 5th King of Iron Fist Tournament from an opponent she defeated in San Francisco. Lili realized that the host of the tournament was the Mishima Zaibatsu, a conglomerate causing trouble for her father’s business. She decided to enter the tournament in hopes of putting an end to her father’s business troubles.[11]

Asuka Kazama defeated Lili at the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, and Lili’s father learned that she had been fighting against his wishes. Lili was banned from leaving home, leaving her unable to pursue a rematch with Asuka.

Soon after, Mr. Rochefort’s oil fields were taken over by the Mishima Zaibatsu. His company fell into disarray, and he collapsed due to stress. Concerned for her father’s well-being, Lili began formulating a plan to reclaim the oil fields from the Mishima Zaibatsu. As she was making her plans, the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 was announced. Lili entered the tournament to enact her plans and help her father.[12]

At some point following Lili’s participation in the tournament, Lili encountered Lars Alexandersson and Alisa Bosconovitch. She told them she had not had the opportunity to fight Asuka, and that she would imminently be returning home to Monaco. To assist in Lars and Alisa’s conflict with the Mishima Zaibatsu and its leader, Jin Kazama, Lili provided them with a vehicle.[13]

Lili went on to enter the King of Iron Fist Tournament 7 without telling her father she would be attending. She was matched against Asuka.[14] Asuka defeated Lili;[15] however, Lili continued going to lengths to get Asuka's attention, even buying her family's dojo and decorating it in roses.[16]

Lili entered the King of Iron Fist Tournament 8 when it was announced by Kazuya Mishima. She won the Europe B Block preliminary[17] and moved on to the next round of the tournament held in a coliseum in Italy. Lili brought Asuka (who was not competing) along to spectate her participation in the tournament. Here, Lili witnessed Kazuya Mishima’s ascent to his True Devil form. Lili offered to take Jin Kazama to Yakushima on her private jet so that he could act on guidance provided to him.[18] Lili and Asuka performed reconnaissance on Yakushima to locate Kazuya's G Corporation forces.[19] During the battle between Yggdrasil and G Corporation's forces, Lili and Asuka intervened in a fight between Alisa Bosconovitch and G Corporation’s Jack-8, disabling Jack-8 before he could defeat Alisa.[20]

Personality[]

Lili has a snobbish, flippant personality. Though she has superficially good manners, she often comes across as dismissive of other people’s abilities and wishes, as well as insensitive to their feelings. Lili also has a sadistic side, threatening people with violence or even hitting a downed opponent for no reason other than ‘fun’. In contrast with her usual lofty attitude, Lili appears to care greatly for her father’s well-being, entering the fifth and sixth King of Iron Fist Tournaments to oppose the Mishima Zaibatsu’s encroachment on his business. Lili has great confidence her fighting abilities, as demonstrated in her winning and pre-match quotes, despite her lack of formal training in combat or martial arts. To get around her father’s disapproval of her fighting, Lili enters fights in secret or when he is too weak to object.

If Lili is chosen as the player character in Scenario Campaign, she is often depicted as being curious even in the face of danger, intolerant of what she interprets as ‘bad manners’, and entertained by novel features of her opponents. She regularly refers to fighting as ‘playing’ and dismisses some fighters as ‘toys’. Lili’s materialistic side is also observable in this mode, as she insists that she will be taking Mokujin (who she believes to be a doll) home with her, and also desires to make Kuma her pet. Further to this, Lili comes across as ungrateful and oblivious to the value of expensive objects; in Scenario Campaign’s story cutscenes, she provides a vehicle to Lars Alexandersson and Alisa Bosconovitch, telling them that it was gifted to her but she finds it too "hideous" for her liking. She also is rather unimpressed at most of the big facilities or buildings tied to the G Corporation and Mishima Zaibatsu, compared to other characters who are often amazed at how big the areas are.

Since her loss to Asuka Kazama during the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, Lili has thought of her as her rival and been eager for a rematch. Lili’s ending cutscenes in Tekken 6 and Tekken Tag Tournament 2, and her character episode in Tekken 7, have all featured scenarios wherein Lili and Asuka fight again (though none of these are yet confirmed as canon). Lili is depicted as going to great lengths to engineer their rematch in her Tekken Tag Tournament 2 ending cutscene, hiring actors to fight and draw Asuka out, then claiming Asuka’s title of ‘Gang Mediator’ and taunting her until she loses her temper and starts a fight. Lili’s butler, Sebastian, interprets this attempt to solicit Asuka’s attention as ‘another expression of [Lili’s] affections’. In Asuka’s Tekken 7 character episode ending cutscene, Lili reveals that she has bought Asuka’s father’s dojo and that she will be moving in, which frustrates Asuka.

In Tekken 8, Lili also shows her love of cats, owning a Siamese cat named Salt. In her intro and win animations, she can be seen either chasing Salt or picking the cat up and hugging it close to her, displaying her somewhat naive side as she does not seem to understand why the cat flees or notice it struggling slightly to escape the embrace.

Appearance[]

Lili is a tall teenage girl with blue eyes. She is the tallest female fighter at 180 cm, further emphasized the heeled footwear she often wears. She has long blonde waist length hair styled in a hime-cut. She is generally seen wearing a white Victorian style frilled mini dress with long sleeves and fingerless gloves, a red checkered ascot tie with matching socks, and heeled white boots, as well as a ruby red jewel worn on her ascot tie. She also wears light makeup, such as pink lip gloss and light pink eyeshadow and a hint of pink blush.

While both can cooperate as a tag team, as seen in their intro, both are quite abrasive towards one another as they push each other out of the way in an attempt to decide who will fight their opponents first.

Special Alliance Partners:

Tekken Revolution[]

Lili appears as a playable character on the release of Tekken Revolution.

Tekken Card Tournament []

Lili appears as a playable character in Tekken Card Tournament. Her cards mainly focused on powerful effects at the cost of the number of cards the opponent has. Her cards were also be a double edged sword, as her best cards required giving her opponent an additional card, or having predictable requirements that opponents could easily avoid, such as requiring them to have a specific number of cards. This often forces her to have to wait for her opponent to draw a needed card amount so she can attempt to either dual strike with them or bait them into defending in fear of her card's properties. She also mainly specializes in parries, making her a relatively easy to use, but difficult to master character as making builds with her cards may seem easy, but all of her style types such as healing, power, or defense based builds have notable flaws that make them somewhat easy to abuse.

Also noteworthy is that Lili has undergone the most nerfs since the game's release. She can easily beat Xiaoyu players as she passively thrives on the number of cards Xiaoyu can easily draw, but she struggles against Law players, as they can nullify her card abilities, and put her in helpless situations during gameplay.

Gameplay[]

Lili has many versatile moves and easy-to-use, effective attacks, which benefit from great range and reach thanks to her long legs. Her damage output is surprisingly high, her counterattacks, juggling and wall fighting will all eat away at her opponent's health. That said, some of her more popular strings are easily recognizable, and may leave her wide open to punishment. She's also somewhat slow and virtually almost all of her attacks can be sidestepped, as she lacks many homing attacks. She makes up for this however with her ranged attacks which can be used at mid to long range to keep an opponent from moving in. Her lows aren't the best however and are predictable which can make it difficult for her to open up opponents.

Lili also has quite a handful of attacks that involve her jumping which can avoid lows, and she has a deadly okizeme ground game, which makes it scary to deal with Lili when she successfully knocks you down. She also possesses an attack reversal, as well as a wall throw. She can go into a back-turned stance using Mirror Image, giving her access to more moves, and specific attacks she can use to leave her back-turned.

Lili's sidestep is noted to be one of the strongest in the series, and she can avoid strings and attacks that would normally hit most of the playable cast. Lili also possesses a wavedash-adjacent stance known as Dew Glide, which can be used for combo extensions and as a way to move in with varied moves that can apply pressure against guarding opponents.

Tekken 8 gives her more options to work with to improve her mix-ups, having a new back-turned low punch, a new mid kick into a jumping kick that can evade highs, and a new low kick from the stance as well, and additional moves which can be cancelled into her Feisty Rabbit and Dew Glide stances. Her Feisty Rabbit hop stance was also improved, now being able to be performed twice in succession(it was previously only possible to do this when she undergoes Heat).

Like the other fighters in the roster, her moveset gains notable improvements from the Heat mechanic; Her Piercing Thorn becomes stronger and better for pressure, granting her plus frames when blocked. Her low from Feisty Rabbit also becomes stronger, as it knocks down on normal hit, giving her a stronger combo opportunity. She also has access to a back-turned attack and forward facing attack in Heat that can be used both as a strong ender or as a way to continue juggles.

Fighting Style[]

Lili's fighting style is characterized by Gymnastics moves combined with many dance-like, acrobatic maneuvers - graceful and versatile spins, cartwheels, handstands, tumbles and pirouettes.

This fighting style is self-learned and self-developed by Lili herself, since her father, who dislikes fighting, would probably never allow her to even practice any sort of formal martial arts training. This is probably why some of Lili's moves often reflect her background and personality, as she tends to strike a lot of elegant, graceful poses as she attacks. Even her generic attacks such as her crouching kicks and jabs tend to have an air of elegance and grace. She also tends to gracefully place one or both arms behind her back when performing some moves.

Quotes[]

Trivia[]

General:

  • Her first name, Emilie, is of Latin origin, and the meaning is "rival". Her surname, de Rochefort, comes from Old French, and the meaning is "from the fortress of rock".
  • Katsuhiro Harada confirmed that Lili's birthday is November 11, a date which was chosen because her name in lowercase English or katakana looks like "1111".[27]
  • In an episode of Harada's Bar, Harada confirmed that Lili is about 170cm tall (without shoes).[28]
  • Lili's self-taught personal combat system is a hybrid of street fighting, rhythmic gymnastics, and ballet. It was originally nicknamed "Monegasque-style Gymnastic Street Fighting" by fans.
  • Lili's hair in-game differs from her CG movie appearances and CG renders; in renders and movies she is shown to have shoulder length side locks that sit above her chest, however in-game and in certain CG scenes they are absent. It is possible that the developers intentionally omit the side locks to make it easier to render her in-game hair.
    • This is no longer the case in Tekken 8, which now includes her shoulder length sidelocks on her in-game model.
  • Her primary outfit represents the Monegasque flag (white and red).
  • Lili is the youngest human playable character, as of Tekken 6, after Ling Xiaoyu.

  • Lili claims that Ganryu has an unibrow like her father.
  • Lili's gifts from her father include a huge (customized) tanker, which she uses as a yacht. It features in Tekken 6 Scenario Campaign where it is docked at Queen's Harbor. This is, possibly, the same tanker seen in her Street Fighter X Tekken trailer.
  • Lili's in-game Tekken 8 profile revealed her to be 180 cm tall, making her the tallest female fighter in the series.
  • According to Harada, Lili's mother, who is not mentioned in the Tekken series, is an unpleasant person. Apparently, when her daughter said she wanted to keep a hamster, Mrs. de Rochefort bought her a cat, and when her daughter said she wanted to eat sushi, she brought ten sumo wrestlers from Japan to make rice balls. Mrs. de Rochefort was a person who greatly influenced the development of Lili's personality.[29]

Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection :

  • In the opening movie of the game, Lili is kidnapped by a group of men in a limousine. As the movie progresses, she manages to fight her way out and escape her captors. This is a reference to her abduction 4 years before the events of the game.

Tekken 6 and Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion:

  • In Bloodline Rebellion, Lili has a console-exclusive extra outfit designed by Ito Ogure, a well-known Japanese manga artist, known for creating the manga series Air Gear and Tenjou Tenge.

  • Lili, alongside Asuka and Hwoarang, is one of the only characters to use her Player 2 costume rather than her Player 1 costume.
  • Lili's hair is exactly identical to her CG renders since the game gives her the side locks she wears over her shoulders in game. In the mainline series, this is often not the case.
  • Her dress skirt is also animated in this game, whereas in the mainline Tekken series, it is not rigged to move.
  • Lili's medium kick attack is the same as her removed f4 command from Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection: "Ivory Revolver".
  • Lili's Attack reversal when using the EX version will have her perform her Rafflesia throw instead of her standard attack reversal.
  • Lili's Japanese voice actress, Asami Seto, would later voice Reina in Tekken 8.[30]

Tekken 7:

  • One of Lili's new moves are similar on one of the characters of Pokkén Tournament (Gardevoir), a project developed by the Tekken team.
  • Lili's prologue in her story mode seems to suggest that there is a time skip spanning a few years in Tekken 7 due to the fact that her prologue mentions that her and Asuka have had their rivalry for years, despite Lili seeming to have only met Asuka in Tekken 5 where she was defeated by her. This is in direct contradiction to the Journalist's statement that the events Tekken 5 only occurred a few months prior.
  • Lili's hair is notably strangely rendered and animated in Tekken 7; It floats and drapes fairly slowly in game and the layers of hair commonly clip into one another, as well as it being notably stiffer in movement in comparison to Tekken Tag Tournament 2. However, her hair moves a lot more fluidly in the "Tekken Bowl" mode, as her hair changes behavior in her win poses and it drapes and flows much better when she is getting ready to roll her bowling ball across the lane.
  • Lili had her "gutter" or "miss" animations in Tekken Bowl changed. Originally she would slouch downwards while walking away slumped over. Now as of the recent patches, she shrugs her shoulders and shakes her head in disappointment before walking away.
  • In Eliza's ending, Lili finally meets Eliza at the Archers of Sirius headquarters after the latter defeats Claudio Serafino in her story. Lili claims Eliza as her sister, even though Eliza dismisses this due to being an 1000 year old vampire. Lili tries to explain why, but Eliza repeatedly falls asleep to which Lili comments that Eliza should drink less blood and more coffee.

Tekken (Mobile)

  • This is the first game (and currently the only game) where Lili is an unlockable character.
  • In the next update along with Bryan Fury and Alex, Lili was playable in her summer appearance known as Summer Lili as her elemental affinity is water instead of her original self whose elemental affinity is lightning.

Tekken 8:

  • Lili is revealed to have a pet Siamese cat named Salt, displaying her love of cats in both her new pre-fight and win animations.
  • Lili is able to be Customized to wear Asuka Kazama's Player 1 outfit from this game.
  • Lili's hairstyle for the first time in the series now includes the shoulder length sidelocks seen in her official cg artworks. In previous games this has been commonly omitted for unknown reasons. Her hairstyle is also notably longer with visible layers towards the ends.
  • Lili reveals in her conversation with Leroy Smith during her ending that speeches always make her nervous.
  • Lili has a special intro with Asuka and Azucena Ortiz.
  • Lili has special intro dialogue with Leroy.

She is a pivotal character in "The Scheming Demon Lord" storyline.
