Mirror Face is a minor character in Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
Background[edit | edit source]
According to Tianyou Zhao, Mirror Face is a legendary assassin, capable of perfectly imitating any living person in order to kill his targets.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
When he is first seen via the Geomijul's surveillance system, he appears to have an average build and wears all black clothing, dark sunglasses and a black face mask that covers his nose and mouth.
Involvement[edit | edit source]
Mirror Face was hired by Ryo Aoki to eliminate Jo Sawashiro, after the latter was arrested for the death of Seiryu Clan Chairman Ryuhei Hoshino. At the request of Kazuma Kiryu, the Geomijul followed Mirror Face and his Omi Alliance liason, Reiji Ishioda, around Ijincho in an attempt to avoid Sawashiro's death.
After Ichiban Kasuga reaches the hideout Ishioda and Mirror Face have been using, they confront Ishioda, only for a man who looks and talks exactly like Kasuga's friend Koichi Adachi to tackle said friend, and the two lock each other in judo holds. In an attempt to figure out which Adachi is real, Kasuga quizzes both of them on traffic laws; one of them is vague about his answers or simply doesn't know, while the other knows the answers exactly and responds without hesitation. With this information, Kasuga punches Mirror Face and frees Adachi, before a fight breaks out between Kasuga's party and Ishioda & Mirror Face.
The assassin later reappears in the Millennium Tower, having been hired by Kasuga and his allies to imitate Yosuke Tendo, thereby fooling Ryo Aoki into openly calling for the deaths of civilians, an act that Joon-gi Han and Saeko Mukoda catch on camera.
Fighting Style[edit | edit source]
While imitating Adachi, Mirror Face replicates his basic combat from the Detective job, using renamed versions of some of Adachi's moves (e.g. "Helmsplitter" is changed to "Headsplitter"). Unlike Adachi, however, Mirror Face also has access to a knife that he will occasionally draw, and will at times pause his actions to survey the area.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Based on an observation from Nanba, it appears that Mirror Face can not only replicate a person's appearance and voice (even down to height and musculature), but also their physical capabilities, as he was able to wrestle Adachi competently in an equal test of strength.
