Wang Jinrei is a brave old man who has a kind heart. Wang continued to remain generous and kind while living as a recluse in the Mishima gardens. Wang was a close friend of Heihachi Mishima's father, Jinpachi Mishima. After Jinpachi's death, he put his faith in Heihachi. However, Wang does not know of Heihachi's actions. He faces Marshall Law in the King of Iron Fist tournament and the fight ends in a draw.
Wang is an old friend of Jinpachi Mishima, the father of Heihachi Mishima and the grandfather of Kazuya Mishima, Wang had seen the way Kazuya Mishima and Heihachi abused and corrupted the Mishima Zaibatsu. Wang later becomes Lee Chaolan's instructor and convinces him to help him bring honor back to the Empire.
As a close friend of Kazuya Mishima's grandfather, the user of the mind Kuni fist runs brave. Wang believes that peace will come once the Mishima Zaibatsu is ruined.
Wang walks up a hill while the sun is setting. He approaches a grave stone (which may be Jinpachi Mishima's). Wang pours a bottled drink on the top of the grave stone. Then, Wang pours some of the drink into a small cup. He drinks from the cup, and then he exhales. A close-up of Wang's face is shown as the ending video ends.
Long ago, Wang had a close friend from a distant land... Jinpachi Mishima. Just as the world was about to be engulfed in the flames of war, his friend come to him and said "In order to bring about peace the Mishima clan must be destroyed".
Jinpachi disappeared leaving these words behind. Some time after, Wang learned of the death of his friend as the world was embroiled in war.
Thirty years later, Wang was living in isolation when an invitation to the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 was delivered. Along with it was a message... "I need your help, old friend. Seek me out, Wang Jinrei". The letter was signed, "Jinpachi Mishima".
Believing his friend to be dead, Wang Jinrei was quite surprised by the message and decided to enter the tournament to look for Jinpachi.
Wang has defeated Jinpachi Mishima. Jinpachi's "Devil" form fades away, leaving only Jinpachi in his human form laying on the ground on his stomach. Wang holds Jinpachi, shakes him, and asks, "Jinpachi, are you ok?" Jinpachi replies, "I'm sorry I caused you so much trouble..." Wang says, "Don't say such things! We have been through so much and have always been like brothers.". Jinpachi reaches up to Wang with one of his hands and says, "Jinrei...", Wang grabs Jinpachi's hand with one of his hands and says, "Jinpachi!". Jinpachi says, "I wish we could have had one last drink together...but I'm afraid my time has come... Good bye, my dear friend... It was fun..." Jinpachi turns to dust in Wang's arms. Wang runs his fingers through the sand that was Jinpachi while saying, "Jinpachi... Jinpachi!..." Wang continues talking, saying, "It's the curse of the Mishima bloodline!..." Wang gets up while saying, "Jinpachi...it appears that my time has yet to come!" A shooting star flies across the sky.
Wang Jinrei heard of the Mishima family's cursed blood from his close friend, Jinpachi Mishima.
Wang was utterly defeated in The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 by Jin Kazama, whose purpose was to wipe out the Mishima family's cursed blood. However, the real chaos began when Jin Kazama assumed control of the Mishima Financial Group (MFG).
Blaming his failure on his indifference, Wang lamented his lack of action.
Once again, The King of Iron Fist Tournament is held, and with new-found purpose, Wang participates in The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6.
Following his victory over Azazel, Wang prepares to leave before sensing Azazel's presence behind him. But as the monster was about to attack, Wang used a powerful elbow attack right on his foe's spine (though apparently it was the tail), causing the latter to disperse into a orb with magneta-coloured scarabs fading into nothingness.
Yet, it also took it's toll on Wang as he murmurs "Jinpachi..my friend. My time has come." before falling onto his knees, saying "I'll see..you again..." as he falls onto the ground.
Wang appeared as a playable character in Tekken Tag Torunament. He retains his moveset from Tekken 2 with many new moves added. Many moves were added because of his absence in Tekken 3. While Tekken Tag Tournament is non-canonical, it is looked at as a refined version of Tekken 3.
Ending: Wang is doing internal Kungfu with Xiaoyu. Wang suddenly stops and Xiaoyu rushes to his side. Wang holds his back in pain, Xiaoyu looks at the camera with a reluctant smirk and her hands on her hips as though he is finding an excuse not to continue.
Wang returned as a playable character in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. He retains his moveset from Tekken 6 with few new moves added.
Wang points out that they aren't popular and his wish to be a stud. Jinpachi argues that the developers of Tekken knew that Wang was unpopular with fans, but didn't have the heart to take him out. He also points out how Wang died in his Tekken 6 ending. Wang says that Jinpachi can't talk so big as Jinpachi had turned into sand in Wang's Tekken 5 ending. Doctor Boskonovitch isn't worried as he says that he will be in the series as long as there will be the Jack-series, Yoshimitsu, Alisa and Bryan. Sebastian states that he doesn't mind being unpopular as long as he protects Lili.
Boskonovitch now has a new idea to make them popular. He decides to turn everyone into cyborgs like Bryan but with one of Alisa's technology parts. Later Ganryu and Baek arrive to see that plans were already being made to turn all four old men into cyborgs. Baek thinks it will be a ridiculous plan, but Ganryu is excited about the old men's idea.
