"I think this performance earns at least 16 pieces of Fried Tofu."

Xiaomu (小牟 Shaomū?) is the female protagonist from the Japan-exclusive crossover game Namco x Capcom. She also returns as the female protagonist for Project X Zone 2.

She is a Mystic Fox Sage of at least 765 years (their lifespan being far longer than a human's). She's Reiji Arisu's partner in Shinra, and also the one who trained him at his father's request. She is immature, also an avid otaku, showing an interest in anime and online gaming. She carries a sword-staff called Suiren, wields twin pistols named Silver and Platinum and can use a variety of mystic arts.


Before Shogo used the forbidden art of the Arisu Clan, he asked Xiaomu to take care of his son Reiji. After ten years, Reiji finally matures into a hardened warrior. During the events of Namco X Capcom, when Saya appears before Reiji, she had a feeling that events would repeat themselves and it would affect him directly. After fighting alongside Reiji and other allies across time and space, she eventually tries to muster the courage to tell the truth of what happened to Reiji's father, but missed her chance due to her hesitance. When the worlds merged, she finally got a chance to say it, but it seems Reiji figured it out. As she pleads him not to use the forbidden art, their friends arrived in time to stop him as well. As soon as they deliver the final blow to Saya, the worlds begin to return to normal. 3 months later, the man who gave them invitations became none other than Demitri Maximoff. While Demitri's party continue on, Xiaomu and Reiji decides to talk about the future and what their adventure takes next.

Due to Xiaomu's age and her lack of maturity, she became a victim of jokes that mocked her for ages, and when she makes jokes about them, she got threatened by Reiji who spanks her for no reason.

Crosspedia Entry[]

Project X Zone[]

A member of Shinra. Reiji's partner, she has been in the organization for (considerably) longer than he has.

Although she looks like a young girl, she is actually a 765-year old "Sage Fox," a type of vulpine monster.

After Reiji's father Shougo was killed in the course of a Shinra mission, she taught Reiji how to fight in his place.

During combat she uses a swordstick called "Suiren" and two pistols called "Silver" and "Platinum."

She also uses various mystical arts, talismans, divination and even professional wrestling.

Always cheerful, if a little cheeky.

Her hobbies qualify her to be a high-level otaku who enjoys anime, comics, games, and the internet.

List of Quotes - Xiaomu (Story/PXZ2)



  • Xiaomu, Reiji, Chun-Li and, Alisa A. are the only returning characters from the original game to have new artwork in the sequel.
  • Project X Zone is the only game in the Cross series where Reiji and Xiaomu aren't available by default.
  • Xiaomu appears in a limited edition version of The Legend of Valkyrie that comes with early Japan exclusive copies of Project X Zone 2.
  • Xiaomu's age of at least 765 is a reference to Namco. 765 is Goroawase for Na (7) Mu (6) and Ko (5) or Namco.
  • Xiaomu has got more progressively perverted as the series went on.
  • Xiaomu, Chun-Li, Pai Chan, Hsien-Ko, Xiaoyu, June, and Fong Ling are the only Chinese playable units.
  • Xiaomu is the only one of Namco X Capcom's three major characters to appear outside the Cross series.
    • Reiji and Saya are in the Endless Frontier games, but it's still part of the Cross series since the events in Endless Frontier and EXCEED are the important to Project X Zone's plot.
  • Xiaomu appears in the Japan-exclusive 3DS game from Bandai Namco, Brave Company.
  • At one point in Project X Zone 2, Xiaomu states that "Pixel art is the coolest, but I'll admit--my dream one day is to be made entirely of polygons." This is possibly a fourth-wall breaking nod to the fact that she has never been featured in a game consisting of characters rendered in polygonal 3D models; all her video-game appearances thus far used 2D sprite-based graphics for its characters.
