Nina Williams is a fictional character from Namco’s Tekken fighting game series. A cold-blooded Irish assassin, Nina made her first appearance in Tekken, the original game in the series, and is one of three playable characters (the others being Paul Phoenix and Heihachi Mishima), and the only female character to appear in every installment in the series.

During the game when choosing Kitana and Mileena, the palette swap would turn to red instead of blue (Kitana) or purple (Mileena) and so create an unnamed red female ninja. Netherrealm Studios confirmed that the name of the character had been decided to be Skarlet, and in March 2011 she was announced as one of Mortal Kombat’s first two downloadable characters.

She uses kodachi swords and kunai knives.
