Christie Monteiro

The granddaugher of Eddy Gordo's master and his suggested romantic interest. She has replaced Eddy as the prominently-featured capoeira user in the Tekken series. In Tekken 4, she entered the fourth Tournament to search for Eddy and in Tekken 5, she wishes to use the Mishima Zaibatsu's cutting-edge technology to save her grandfather. For obvious reasons, Christie has quite a substantial fanbase. Some fans consider her to be an excellent addition to the cast, adding sex appeal to the series as well as light-heartedness to largely-somber cast. However, this is also a major criticism of the character. Christie's scarce clothing and flirtatious style give many the impression that Christie was added merely as fanservice to the cast. At the same time, Christie's minimal part in the story (which, to date, has only consisted of searching for Eddy and trying to save her grandfather) does not interest many fans, especially when it's considered that Eddy's story of revenge against Kazuya was interrupted by Christie's introduction. A further criticism is inherited from Eddy directly--many fans despise Tekken's interpretation of capoeira, as used by both Eddy and Christie. A common criticism is that it rewards button mashing players too richly. Regardless, most expert-level players do not regard the characters as cheap.
