Tekken Tag Tournament 2
Miharu Hirano (平野 美晴 Hirano Miharu) is a playable character in the Tekken series of fighting games. She made her first playable appearance in Tekken 4 as a palette-swap for Ling Xiaoyu and returns in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, now with her own character slot. Miharu is Xiaoyu's best friend and schoolmate at Mishima High School.
Miharu is a Japanese girl with short, auburn hair and brown eyes. Additionally, she also practices the same martial arts moves as her friend Xiaoyu. Like Jin Kazama, Miharu also calls Xiaoyu "Xiao" as a nickname.
Note: Miharu's Tekken 4 story is the same as Ling Xiaoyu's story.
Prologue Text:"Ling was a junior at Mishima High School. She still lived, studied and trained as a ward of the Mishima Zaibatsu. But lacking any particular goals, Ling grew tired of her everyday routines.
However, one day, she received an anonymous e-mail that warned her of Heihachis evil intentions and the danger to her life. Ling replied to the e-mail, but she did not receive any further messages from the anonymous individual.
Ling's intuition told her that Jin, who had been missing since the last Tournament, could have sent the message. She believed the message and started to suspect Heihachi and the Mishima Zaibatsu.
Upon hearing the announcement of the next Tournament, Ling made the decision to enter, hoping to be reunited with Jin and to unveil the truth behind Heihachi and the Mishima Zaibatsu."
Ending Text: "Xiaoyu defeated Heihachi. No one foresaw this outcome. Soon thereafter, Xiaoyu learned of Heihachi's many evil deeds. He was clearly guilty of supporting the raid on G Corporation. The evil nature of the Mishima Zaibatsu was finally revealed".
Ending Description: Xiaoyu, who is now the Chief Executive Officer of the Mishima Zaibatsu, is visited by Miharu. Miharu confesses that she failed all of her college entrance exams. Xiaoyu then offers her a job at the Mishima Zaibatsu. Xiaoyu wants Miharu to help her build the amusement park of her dreams.
Ending Description: Miharu, Xiaoyu, Panda and Alisa are all walking down a street, heading towards an amusement park. Miharu and Xiaoyu have a discussion on when they last went to an amusement park and Xiaoyu doesn't appear to remember it. Alisa remarks to Panda that the two seem very close. The four then arrive outside the amusement park and Alisa receives an advertisement off a man. She excitedly shows it to the others; it offers to pay people to partake in filming nearby. The group accept the offer. Suddenly, a commotion occurs nearby and Alisa and Panda go to check it out. Xiaoyu then tells Miharu she remembers the last time the went to the park but it was when Miharu broke up with her boyfriend and she didn't say in case it upset Miharu. The actors nearby then start applauding and celebrating as Miharu takes a picture with Xiaoyu.
