Yun (ユン, Yun?) and Yang (ヤン, Yan?) are two Street Fighter characters introduced in Street Fighter III: New Generation. They are twin brothers known collectively as the Lee Brothers (リー兄弟, Rī Kyōdai?). Yun wears a blue baseball cap with a yellow visor, a sleeveless white kung fu shirt, yellow wristbands, and black pants and sneakers, while Yang wears a sleeveless salmon kung fu shirt, yellow wristbands, black pants and sneakers. The twins are two of only a few characters introduced in Street Fighter III who made appearances outside the Street Fighter III games.
In the original version of Street Fighter III, Yun and Yang share the same frame in the character selection screen. Yun is the default character, selected with any punch buttons, while Yang is selectable by pressing any of the kick buttons, essentially making Yang an alternate design for Yun. In Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact, Yang was made into a separately selectable character and his playing style began to deviate from Yun in this installment. This was carried on in Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike.
NOTE: The asterisk-marked data on the fighter infobox refers only to Yun, in his SFA3 Max appearances. Like all other new SFIII characters, none of them have official profiles. Since Yang's in-game behavior is that of a palette-swap, it can be assumed that Yun's data are the same for him as well. Same goes for the double-asterisk-marked header, however based on their own personal traits.
Yun and Yang are relatives of Lee, a character who appears in the original Street Fighter game. The twins were orphaned as children and are the godsons of eight bosses in the underground community raised by an adoptive grandfather, who trained the boys in the art of Kung Fu. The two brothers became leaders of their local town at a young age. The restaurant Yun and Yang work in belongs to their grandfather.
Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition
After Chun-Li foils a criminal's getaway right before their eyes and drives off with Guile, Yun decides that whatever enemy is bringing Chun-Li out of retirement must be strong, and decides to follow her for an adventure. Yang happily accompanies him, knowing they are dealing with S.I.N., a division group of Shadaloo. After their "adventure", they return home to find Hoi Mei fuming, and she grabs Yun by the ear dragging him off. As they are being punished, the brothers encounter Chun-Li. As they bid her farewell and thank her for inspiring them to embark on their adventure, they hope to one day see her again.
Street Fighter III
The twins went to fight Gill and his men, the Illuminati, who threatened to invade their home town. After his defeat, Gill granted them leadership of their town. They passionately turned down his offer, since they only fought him to stop his maniacal plans.
In Yun's non-canonical appearance in Street Fighter Alpha 3, he and his twin brother Yang are searching around the world for the legendary movie star Fei Long, so they could become famous movie stars in their own hometown. They run into Dee Jay (who by chance knows Fei Long), and Yun fights him and wins.
Yun also hears rumors of Fei Long working with drug dealers (i.e. Shadaloo). However, Dee Jay knows Fei Long is a nice person who would never associate with them. He soon tells both brothers where they could find Fei Long. They soon find him afterwards, and fight him to know the truth. After the Lee Brothers won, Fei Long tells Yun and Yang that he was infiltrating the drug deals to find out who the drug dealers were working for. He finds out that they are all under the rule of M. Bison.
The Lee Brothers decide to help Fei Long in order to save their hometown from Shadaloo, but are caught along with Fei Long. Fei Long has Yun and Yang fight The Dolls, while he finds and finishes off Bison. Yun returns from the fight and finds Fei Long defeated at Bison's feet. Bison asks the Lee Brothers to join him and Shadaloo, but they refuse, and instead fight Bison. They come out victorious, finishing Bison off for good. Fei Long thanks them and in return, the Lee brothers get their wish to become movie stars and starred in their own movie - Street King 2: Three Dragons (which became a box-office smash hit).
Between the two brothers, Yun is the more confident, outgoing one, while Yang is the quiet, tacturn one. Yun enjoys skateboarding, while Yang prefers in-line skating. The twins are in love with a girl named Houmei but Houmei likes Yun. However, Houmei has a younger sister named Shaomei who is in love with Yang.
In Capcom vs. SNK 2, Yun was one of several Capcom characters added in addition to the original game's roster. In this incarnation, Yun is selectable by himself, although the player can summon his brother Yang for special attacks.
Yun also appears in Capcom Fighting Evolution for the PlayStation 2. His appearance in those two games are based on his Capcom vs. SNK 2 incarnation.
Yun and Yang also appear as playable characters in the arcade edition of Super Street Fighter IV.
