How Xianghua entered the Tourney
While traveling west on the Silk Road, Xianghua reunited with Kilik. Together they traveled to India to find Maxi. However, he did not join them. Xianghua was worried that he was searching for Soul Edge so he can have his revenge on Astaroth. She knew she had to stop him. Meanwhile, Xianghua had no idea of what kind of feelings Kilik had for her. But her feelings for him were clear. However, she could never tell him of those feelings. They had to destroy Soul Edge. Because they did not destroy it properly last time, a lot of calamities were happening all over the world. But she was determined that they would eliminate the evil sword once and for all, in the Smash Bros. Tourney, that is.
Classic Mode Intro Movie
Xianghua and Iron Man are in a beautiful field. As Xianghua admires the view, Iron Man shows her the grave of the woman who saved Kilik's life. Now that everything was over, Iron Man wonders if they did the right thing. "Of course it was the right thing!" Xianghua says, "Besides, this is only the beginning!" As the two began to leave, Xianghua lost her balance. An invisible star hits Xianghua and she falls to the ground, and Iron Man screams "NOOOO!". "You're hopeless," Xianghua said, as Iron Man helped her up. Captain America then arrived and called out to them. As Xianghua and Iron Man ran up to Captain America, he asked them if they were ready to go to the Smash Bros. Tourney to battle Master Hand. As the three friends walked away, Xianghua pulled on Iron Man's arm and said, "I'm not going to give up on you that easily!". Iron Man replied "I can still smell Norman Osborn's hair gel...". Xianghua said "Huh?!".
Classic Mode Ending Movie
Iron Man falls down. Xianghua tends to her friend then Kilik and Maxi arrive. "How is your friend?" Maxi asks. Xianghua replies, "Uh, he's fine. I just hope he's not dead." Kilik checks out the unconscious Iron Man and says "Are you alright?" Then, the armored superhero wakes up and says "Yeah, I'm not too injured." Before Iron Man leaves, Xianghua puts a hand on his and asks, "When can we meet again, sometime not on the field of battle? Under different circumstances." Iron Man pats her head then says "I hope under... different circumstances. Take care!" then flies off with Maxi reminding, "Don't get lost!" At home, Xianghua reads a letter from Tony Stark then falls asleep.
