"Do you have anything to say to me? Eh? Eh? Eh!"
Set apart by his purple outfit, tall, blond, spiky hair, and frequent bubble gum bubbles, Edge is a teenage delinquent from Gedo High School. He hates school almost as much as he hates his real name; he will go ballistic on you if you call him Eiji Yamada. Edge is commonly seen causing trouble with his two best friends and co-gang members: Daigo Kazama (the leader) and Gan Isurugi (the muscle).
Edge's fighting style is a dirty one: he fights primarily with his hands in his pockets so as to conceal handfuls of throwing knives. One attack involves kicking dirt towards his opponent's eyes. Edge lives with both parents, an older brother, and an older sister. He has difficulty holding onto a job and does poorly in school, especially math. Known to cheat, you'd sooner see Edge skipping class or in detention than in the library studying.
Though he is cocky and egocentric, he isn't above asking for help when he's concerned about a friend. He shows minimal respect for rivals and teachers but has a good-natured heart and has been known to defend the helpless.
