Taki (Soulcalibur)

is a fictional character in the Soul series of historical fantasy fighting games by Namco. Taki is a Japanese demon-hunting kunoichi and the greatest warrior of the Fu-Ma ninja clan, who is traveling the world on a quest to destroy an evil sword known as Soul Edge. Taki was introduced in the original arcade version of Soul Edge in 1995, in which she and Sophitia are the main characters, and then has been featured as a player character in every title of the Soul series up until Soulcalibur V in 2012 when Taki's place was taken by her young disciple named Natsu. She also appeared in some other works such as Namco × Capcom and Queen's Gate.

In-game, Taki is most capable at close quarters where her speed, acrobatic agility and powerful kicks are the most effective. She was voiced in Japanese by Fujiko Takimoto until Soulcalibur III and then by Sachiko Kojima in later games; Desirée Goyette voiced her in the English version of Soulcalibur II. Taki has achieved a significant popularity among the fans of the series, especially in the West. She has also received mostly positive feedback from game journalists, being often regarded as one of the best female ninja characters in video games as well as one of sex symbols of the fighting genre and gaming in general, sometimes compared in these aspects to the likes of Mai Shiranui and the ninja women from Mortal Kombat. Several publications also noted her iconic status in the Soul series and lamented her absence in Soulcalibur V.
