Kickass Bruce Lee clones

Fact: Bruce Lee is better than Chuck Norris. Lee never hawked Bowflexes in his quest for the perfect mixed martial arts form. Lee kicked Norris’ ass in Way of the Dragon. And it was Lee who brought his proprietary blend of Kung Fu kickass-ery to the mainstream with his wild whoops, and a roundhouse kick that packed more power than the millions of stale internet jokes about his co-star.
So why all the Lee love on a videogame site? When you think about it, almost every major fighting franchise features a Bruce Lee clone. And why not? Lee’s likeness and fast fists fit great in just about any game where two people try to beat the crap out of each other. That’s why we’re paying tribute to our favorite Lee clones of all of all time, the ones who captured the best qualities of the late and great martial arts master.

First appeared in: Mortal Kombat
Famous quote: Liu Kang clearly says “Wululululululu!” when performing his Flying Bicycle Kick in Mortal Kombat II.
Signature moves: Flying Kick, Dragon Fire, Flying Bicycle Kick.
Most Lee-like moment: We’re going to have to go with Liu Kang’s winning pose in the Test Your Might minigame from the first Mortal Kombat. He’s a dead ringer for Bruce Lee from Way of the Dragon.

Know your Lee: Ho Sung Pak, the actor who played Liu Kang in Mortal Kombat, also starred as Superstar, the cocky Kung Fu fighter in WMAC Masters. The show first aired in 1995 and featured choreographed martial arts battles with lots of staged behind-the-scenes drama. The second (and last) season of WMAC Masters was hosted by Bruce Lee’s daughter, Shannon Lee.

    Haha, what can you say? Bruce Lee was awesome and is likeness is bound to be copied in video games. I feel it's a good homage towards his soul.

    Every Beat-Em-Up has a Bruce Lee character. Just as every Beat-Em-Up has a Japanese Schoolgirl.

    All I want to say about Chuck is that he was a student of the late master, Bruce Lee. Chuck is okay in his own right, and if he chooses to endorse said products, then that's his right as an American. Bruce Lee was offered to endorse schools for martial art, but declined because he wasn't going to teach in them. They only wanted to use his name. He was an honorable man and his life was one for us to learn from, but only to better ourselves by realizing our own potentual. He always said that he wasn't the way, but merely an arrow pointing the way.

    That's right Cra-Z-Jake - Bruce Lee totally just roundhouse'd the devil like, five times. What the hell is Chuck Norris doing? Making T-Shirts with his lame slogans on them. That's what.

    Bruce Lee died in 1973. He neither starred nor appeared in Kung Fu, which ran from 1972-1975. However, Office Space is still a great movie.
  • iluvmyDS - September 18, 2008 11:03 p.m.

    This is a damn good feature, especially because I love a lot of these characters for that reason.
  • jackfitz11 - September 18, 2008 8:47 p.m.

    love the part in officespace where he says , do you wanna watch kung-fu (the show bruce lee starred in) and she gets all trancelike and is like,I love kung-fu. But Bruce lee died of taking Equagesic and he was alergic to it.

    I have to say that Tony Jaa rivals Bruce Lee he was in ong-bak and the protector.

    Bruce Lee was a great martial artist. It is a real tragedy that he died so young. I am glad to see that he is immortalized so in video games today.

    The one time Chuck Norris ever used a stunt double, because he needed a to go kill some babies. After his stunt double lost, Chuck promptly killed him with a roundhouse kick to the face.
