Who is this old man....

I was rewatching the Shenmue online full trailer and noticed a very quick caricature of an old man that looks like some type of master. Do you think he's the fourth Chi You Men boss? We know Tei-Tei (that's his name right?) is the fourth boss and old....any thoughts?

At first glance, I too immediately thought of the 4th Chiyoumen boss. I believe his name is Tentei actually. But I could be wrong
Waiting for Shenmue III like...

The drawing is actually much older then Shenmue Online. It was shown in the Project Berkley trailer, so it was amoung the firsts things ever shown from the game.

The guy you mean is called Tentei, and he's the fifth Chiyoumen guy, the boss above the four leaders.
This old man reminds me a lot of Master Zhoushan. He doesn't look nearly as aggressive but otherwise the looks match somewhat.

Naw, he doesn't look like Zhouzhan at all. Zhouzhan has no mustache.

I'd say it's Tentei. Of course...there's one person here who would know if that's Tentei or not.

Does anybody here read Japanese and could possibly tell us what the image has scattered throughout it?

Tentei, the Heavenly Emperor. The center of it all with the other leaders being like North, East, South and West. I remember Kiyuu here talk about the colors of the leaders a long time ago and that his should be yellow. I guess linked to the Chi You Men headquarters in Shenmue II (Yellow Head Building)?

They both have eyes though. That's pretty similar to me. And on top of that both have a nose and mouth.

Wasn't Tentei just the 4th member (tortoise) but ran things in the shadows ?

Yes, though the fifth. As written above, the central figure with the other 4 leaders representing North, East, South and West.

" In the same interview Yu Suzuki provided the names to the four leaders of the Chiyoumen. He also clears up a misconception by fans who believed Ziming Hong as one of the four leaders.
Q: There are 4 Chiyoumen bosses. Among them, fans are aware of 3 characters : Lan Di, Niao Sun and Hong Xiuying's brother : Ziming. Could you provide some details about the last one?

Yu Suzuki : Lan Di (Rantei-Souryu/藍帝(蒼龍)) is the east leader. His name also means Blue Dragon. About Niao Sun, she also has another name : 炎帝 (Entei), and rules over the South part and is represented by a Phoenix.

Now, regarding the last 2 boss, no one has seen them yet. One of them is Koutei (昊帝) and leads the West part and is represented by a Tiger. The last one is Gentei (玄帝), covers the North part and is represented by a Turtle.

Oh and, Ziming Hong is not one of the 4th leaders."

Tentei was probably the one who killed Ziming and Xiuying's parents...

Nice that you are having such conversations about Grand Masters. Happy that I could share Entei, Gentei and Koutei and the Grand Masters with you via my interview with Yu Suzuki last year.

Good things are coming. Can't wait for Shenmue III !
