Lee is a Chinese martial artist who participated in the first World Warrior tournament but ends up losing to Ryu.
Lee is now semi-retired and runs a real estate agency while training himself in the art of the Drunken Fist.
Lee battled Sakura in the Sakura Ganbaru manga.
He also makes an appearance as a card in SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters Clash.
Street Fighter Legends: Chun-Li
Lee also makes an unnamed appearance in the UDON comic, Street Fighter Legends: Chun-Li in which he is shown challenging Fei Long to a fight at the unveiling of a Chinese art exhibition. Lee passionately questions Fei Long's right to present the exhibit, believing that he is merely an actor without real martial skill. The two fight right in the middle of the presentation, with Fei Long easily emerging the victor.
- A character of the same name from SNK's fighting game series, Art of Fighting, shares more than few visual traits with Lee. This might be more than just coincidence, since it's known fact that the development team that worked on the original Street Fighter left Capcom and joined SNK.
- The Great Wall stage in Street Fighter Alpha is highly reminiscent of Lee's background.
- In Yang's Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ending, Chun-Li mentions that she is paying her respects to Master Lee, this could imply that she is visiting him.
