Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion
Tekken Tag Tournament 2
Leo Kliesen (レオ, Reo) is a character in the Tekken fighting game series. She is one of the four characters first introduced in Tekken 6, which was released to Arcades in Japan on November 26th 2007. Leo is from Germany, and fights with the art of Hakkyoku-ken (Bajiquan).
Prologue Text: Leo was part of a very talented family. Leo's father was a world-famous spelunker, while Leo's mother served as a G Corporation executive. Although Leo's father disappeared during an expedition when Leo was a child, Leo still wanted to follow in the family tradition and become a spelunker. Leo possessed a strong sense of character, thanks to a proper upbringing. Life was pleasant and relatively uneventful until one fateful day, when Leo's mother was killed by an unknown assailant. Depressed and filled with grief, Leo became incensed when the police called-off their investigation quickly and without explanation. Leo vowed to find the truth. During Leo’s own investigation, the G Corporation's Kazuya Mishima materialized as a person of interest. The G Corporation was popularized at the time as a world hero, making it difficult to get close to Kazuya, and it looked as though Leo’s quest had reached an insurmountable impasse. It was at this time that news of the Mishima Zaibatsu-sponsored The King of Iron Fist Tournament began to spread. Leo learned that Kazuya Mishima was scheduled to appear in person at the event. Realizing that this may be the only chance to take revenge against Kazuya, Leo decided to enter the contest.
Ending Description: Leo pays a visit to Emma Kliesen's grave and finds a letter reading "Dear Leo." Leo reads it and then turns around suddenly to find no one standing behind Leo. The camera pans over Leo's face then points up.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2
Ending Description: Leo is seen on a train that seems to belong to G Corporation. She sneaks in and reads from a computer that her mother was once a supervisor for the Mishima Zaibatsu's devil gene program. The cells of the devil gene merge together with a normal person's cells, so the Mishima Zaibatsu created a synthetic strand to use. The program was cancelled after various fatalities of the test subjects. Emma had also reported the "death" of NT01 . Suddenly while she is saving the information in a USB the computer's owner arms himself and goes back into his cabin. Leo manages to get back on the train's roof only to be surrounded by three armed men. She jumps out of the train and fires a hook that lands on the ledge. She then swears that she will find the murderers of her mother

- There were rumors before the game was officially released that Leo was a girl, and shortly after the game was released in Europe, there were complaints about the character most likely because Leo was thought of as a transgender character; in game, Leo is referred to only by name or gender-neutral terms, and Leo has no costumes that reveal any portion of the torso, which would normally make the character's gender clear. The Bandai-Namco development team had stated that they wanted to create a character that would be loved by fans regardless of gender so they made the gender of Leo ambiguous on purpose. Leo can equip a sledgehammer which is a male item, but Leo also can have pigtail hair bases which is usually for female fighters only. Also, Leo's continue and next round animations are those of male characters.
- In the Scenario campaign, however, both Heihachi and Anna refer to Leo as a "boy".
- Leo cannot be attacked by Anna's Slap Happy (b+2), which is usable against females; but by Heihachi's Headbutt Carnival (f,F+1+4), which is usable against males.
- Leo resembles Rock Howard and King from The King of Fighters series (Garou Mark of the Wolves and Art of Fighting).
- In Tekken 6, Leo can be customized as Ash Ketchum, the main hero from Pokemon. Possibly by coincidence, Leo's voice actress, Veronica Taylor, was the original voice of Ash Ketchum.
- Leo can be customized to look like Future Trunks (Super Saiyan) from Dragon Ball Z. 
- Leo slightly resembles Eliot from the Dead or Alive series.
- In the Tekken 6 Limited Edition Art Book's Designers' Sketches, Leo is under the Male Characters section.
- Some fans misspell Leo's name as "Leon".
- Despite the controversy, the name "Leo" is typically a male name. 
- It is unknown how Leo's father died, but her Tekken 6 ending suggests that he is still alive.
- Leo is ranked #22 in ugo.com's The 25 Most Androgynous Video Game Characters.
- Leo has the largest hitbox of all human female characters, being Class 3 in Tekken Tag 2. Ling Xiaoyu, Jaycee and Alisa Boskonovitch are Class 1, every other female in Class 2.
- Her fighting style is the same of Virtua Fighter character, Akira Yuki.
- In Tekken Tag Tournament 2, she can be customized to look like Sora & Roxas from the Kingdom Hearts Series, & Indiana Jones.
