Steamy showers, sibling voyeurism, and naked photographs... somebody please explain Anna's Tekken 2 ending for me

Fighting games have been known for odd, inconsistent, and out-of-left-field stories, (especially in arcade ladder endings) but I was recently directed to one such sequence from Tekken 2 that might be more ridiculous than all the rest.

This surely won't be news to everyone as many Tekken fans saw this in their earlier years, (which is kind of unsettling) but Anna's ending in T2 sees her go from saving the world by defeating Devil Kazuya to... taking a steamy shower at home and being photographed by her sister, Nina.

Usually character endings serve to give us answers and sense of resolution, but this sequence just prompts a million questions and makes us turn around to make sure no one walked in to view us watching out of context Tekken endings.

Zanar Aesthetics has graciously compiled all Nina and Anna Williams Tekken endings into one video so we can see the, ahem, creative minds of Bandai Namco developers at work over the years.

While T2 is surely the most bizarre of them all, some of the Williams' endings from other games do make us wonder what the heck they were going for when writing them.

You'll find footage of Anna's infamous Tekken 2 ending (along with plenty of interesting others) below. Give it a watch, give yourself a minute to process, and then please chime into the comments with any reactions, theories, or heavily researched answers you may have.
