The latest trailer for Tekken 8 showcases Leroy Smith in all his glory. He is introduced as the ‘Grandmaster of Drip’ and quite rightfully so. His appearance includes white dreadlocks, a large white jacket, and gold jewelry along with a pair of sunglasses. His new look is a bit different from the original but still very reminiscent of it. You can watch the trailer below:

Leroy Smith has a very similar moveset to his Tekken 7 self. He uses a technique called Wing Chun which he mastered over a period of decades. His fists are his major form of talking. Using his fists for all sorts of strong moves, Leroy is one dangerous fighter. He also has a sense of humor as he mocks his enemies during fights. Even then he is a very disciplined and seasoned martial artist.
