List of Tekken characters

List of Tekken characters

The following is a list of characters from the fighting game series Tekken. Characters are listed in alphabetical order.


Main series

Players can choose from a diverse cast that hails from a variety of ethnic backgrounds and fighting styles. A few characters have supernatural origin, such as Devil and Ogre, while animal characters like Kuma the bear and Roger the kangaroo provide comic relief. In the story mode of the game, each character generally has their own personal reasons for entering the tournament and competing for the prize.

Only two characters have been playable in all eight main Tekken installments to date: Nina Williams and Paul Phoenix. While King also have been playable in all the games but as two different characters, with King I being in first two games and King II being in remaining games.

Four characters: Heihachi Mishima, Kazuya Mishima, Marshall Law, and Yoshimitsu would come close, having been playable in seven installments. While Kuma also have been playable in seven main games as two different characters, with Kuma I being in first two games and Kuma II being in remaining five games. Jack also have been playable in seven main installments with 7 different models and names (Jack, Jack-2, Gun Jack (Jack-3), Jack-5, Jack-6, Jack-7 and Jack-8), with Tekken 4 being the only game a Jack robot was absent from (although a Jack-4 was created, this version was mass-produced instead of only one produced like the other Jack robots, although Jack-4 made cameo appearance in Tekken 5 and appeared as a NPC in the story mode of Tekken 7).

Introduced in Tekken

Anna Williams

  • Nationality : Irish
  • Fighting style : Hapkido
  • Voiced by :

Lenne Hardt (TK5, TK6 (in-game), (TTT2 - TK7 [grunts])
Kat Cressida (TK5, TK5: Dark Resurrection [cutscenes])
Debra Jean Rogers (Death by Degrees)
Tara Platt (TK6, TK: Blood Vengeance, TTT2 - present)
Yumi Tōma (TK1 - TTT)
Kaori Yamagata (Tekken: The Motion Picture; drama CD)
Tamako Nohama (film, Japanese dub)
Akeno Watanabe (TK: Blood Vengeance)

Anna is the flamboyant younger sister of Nina Williams. They were taught various martial arts by their father Richard, a former assassin. When Richard dies under mysterious circumstances, the sisters blamed each other, leading to a long-standing rivalry and both sisters going their separate ways. Anna joins a paramilitary organization and becomes an officer in the Tekken Force.

Anna plays only a very minor role in the story of the first game, appearing as a sub-boss character for Nina. Her story was further expanded in later games. In Tekken 2, as in the first tournament, the 20-year-old Nina was once again hired to assassinate the sponsor of the current tournament, Kazuya Mishima. Whether at Kazuya's discretion or Anna's own volition, Anna became a bodyguard for Kazuya, along with Ganryu and Bruce Irvin, who were all charged with Kazuya's protection. Nina was later captured by Mishima Zaibatsu forces and used in Dr. Bosconovitch's cryonics research. Anna was also captured by Kazuya to be another test subject, in the "cold sleep" project by Bosconovitch, where both sisters were put into a cryogenic slumber.

In Tekken 3, after being placed in suspended animation during the second tournament, Nina was awoken fifteen years later by the influence of the recently excavated Ogre, who compelled her to assassinate Jin Kazama. Anna was awoken at the same time as her sister, though she was unaffected by Ogre's influence. Nina suffers ill effects from the "cold-sleep", resulting in long-term memory loss. In an act of compassion, Anna set out to stop Nina from once again becoming an assassin, and to help her recover her memory loss. However, she failed at the end of the tournament when Nina recovered her memory about her rivalry with Anna, which resulted in Nina leaving and cutting all contact with Anna.

Anna is not playable in Tekken 4, but returns in Tekken 5 when Nina attempts to restore Anna's memory, but their meeting triggers Nina's repressed hostility towards her sister. Anna retaliates, and the reunion descends into a gunfight that lasts for days. The sisters eventually reach a stalemate and agree to settle things for good and a portion of their battle can be seen in the introductory sequence of the game. During their battle in the tournament, both sisters agreed that only one would walk away from their battle alive. However, when Nina defeats Anna, she refuses to take Anna's life as she felt the fight was not satisfactory. She enters The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 at Kazuya's request. In Scenario Campaign, Anna leads the defense of G Corporation against Mishima Zaibatsu and Lars Alexandersson's rebel army, and during a confrontation with the rebel army, she sends troops that results in Lars' friend, Tougou's death. She also accompanies Kazuya when he comes to Azazel's Temple in the desert. Upon the latter's stalemate battle with Lars, Anna escapes with Kazuya after he is let go by Lars.

Anna additionally appears in Nina's 2005 spin-off action game Death by Degrees as a commander of the Tekken Force.

Anna is playable in Tekken 7 as part of the Season 2 DLC. After the events of Tekken 6, Anna's heart grew tired of endless fighting. Following her retirement, she met and fell in love with an elite soldier from the G Corporation. But, on the day of their wedding, tragedy occurred. Whilst getting ready for the big day, the sound of gun shots filled the main hall. Anna rushed to the noise, arriving to find her fiancé dead and Nina fleeing the scene with Anna’s stolen wedding dress. Anna, fueled by rage, decided to return to the fight once more. Unbeknownst to Anna, her nephew Steve Fox is also after Nina.

Anna's fighting style is based on hapkido, a martial art that is known for its efficient spinning back kicks, jumping kicks and throws at closer fighting distances. Despite this, she and Nina have both a unique fighting martial art.

Armor King I/II

  • Nationality : Unknown
  • Fighting style : Professional Wrestling (AK1 - US style, AK2 - Japanese style)

Armor King (アーマー・キング, Āmā Kingu) is a professional wrestler and was a rival of King when the latter was still an inexperienced wrestler. He suffered eye damage in a fight with King, but when he later found King distraught and drunk in an alleyway, Armor King convinced him to get back into fighting and enter the second King of Iron Fist tournament. After King is killed by Ogre, Armor King trains a new fighter who sports a jaguar mask similar to that of King's. Armor King is not selectable in Tekken 4, as he is beaten to death in a bar fight instigated by Australian brawler Craig Marduk, who then steals his mask and mockingly wears it in the tournament, provoking Armor King's protege King into entering the competition to seek revenge. Marduk is then attacked in Tekken 5 by what is believed to be Armor King, but his assailant is revealed in Tekken 6 as the original Armor King's younger brother. After recovering from a brutal beating where he and Marduk knocked out each other and brought to hospital by King, the younger Armor King accepts Marduk's challenge for a retirement match arranged by King in Tekken 7.


  • Nationality : Japanese
  • Fighting style : Sumo
  • Voiced by:

Lowell B. Bartholomee (Tekken: The Motion Picture)
Earl Baylon (Tekken: Bloodline)
Banjō Ginga (Tekken)
Takashi Nagasako (TK2-Tekken Tag Tournament; Tekken: The Motion Picture)
Hidenari Ugaki (TK5-present)

Ganryu (Japanese: 巌竜, Hepburn: Ganryū) is a Japanese sumo wrestler who is barred from the sport for infractions such as firebreathing and taunting his opponents. This rejection, coupled with his mounting gambling debts, steers him into a life of crime. Heihachi Mishima hires him as a henchman for the first King of Iron Fist tournament, in which Ganryu loses to Yoshimitsu, who then drains Ganryu's remaining finances and leaves him broke. Kazuya Mishima pays him handsomely for his services in his Mishima Zaibatsu corporation. Ganryu participates in the second tournament as Kazuya's bodyguard, but he also wishes to build his own sumo ring to impress his secret crush, Michelle Chang, but instead, she defeats him in battle and Ganryu returns to Japan. Two decades after the events of Tekken 2, Ganryu opens a sumo stable and trains other wrestlers. However, after seeing Michelle's daughter Julia on television fighting in the fourth tournament, he enters the fifth in hopes of wooing Julia if he is able to recover her lost "Forest Rejuvenation Data" that he eventually finds inside the Mishima Zaibatsu's laboratory, but Julia receives the information and flees before Ganryu can propose marriage. Now faced with a failing restaurant he had opened afterward in Hawaii, Ganryu enters the tournament again in Tekken 6 in attempt to advertise the restaurant and bring in revenue. Unfortunately, Ganryu accidentally donated all his restaurant earnings to Julia's reforestation campaign. In order to fix his financial problems, Ganryu decided to enter the seventh tournament.

Ganryu's occupations have varied in alternate Tekken media; in the animated film Tekken: The Motion Picture, he is Lee Chaolan's bodyguard, and in Tekken: Blood Vengeance, he is a PE teacher at the Mishima Polytechnic School.

GameSpy named Ganryu as one of their "25 Extremely Rough Brawlers" in video gaming: "Ganryu is more of a tragic character as his unrequited love for fellow fighter Julia fuels his brutality." In 2011, Computer and Video Games deemed Ganryu one of the series' "worst ever characters": "If losing some weight and not wearing a massive nappy all the time isn't the first thing you do to attract someone whose mother you've already failed to hit on, then you're doing something terribly, horribly wrong."

Heihachi Mishima

Jack (series)/Prototype Jack

  • Nationality : Russian (Jack-1, Jack-2, Prototype Jack, and Jack-X only)
  • Fighting style : Sheer force
  • Voiced by :

Mark O'Brien (Tekken: The Motion Picture) (Jack-2)
Jordan Byrne (Street Fighter X Tekken) (Jack-X)
Banjō Ginga (Tekken - Tekken 5)
Akio Ōtsuka (Tekken: The Motion Picture) (Jack-2)
Kenichiro Matsuda (Street Fighter X Tekken) (Jack-X)

The various Jack models were originally created by the Mishima Zaibatsu and G Corporation for different purposes:

  • Jack (introduced in Tekken) is the original model, created by Heihachi's Mishima Zaibatsu in order to counter a coup from Kazuya Mishima in the King of Iron Fist Tournament. In-game, the player is one of these machines.
  • Jack-2 (introduced in Tekken 2) is a direct upgrade of the Jack model, also created by the Mishima Zaibatsu. Once a Jack-2 witnesses a young girl named Jane lose her mother during a battle, he takes it upon himself to look after her, until he is destroyed by Dr. Abel.
  • Prototype Jack (or P. Jack) (introduced in Tekken) is a prototype created to combat both Jack and Jack-2. After the first King of Iron Fist Tournament, the remains of Prototype Jack are almost destroyed by Jack's combat abilities. His body is later remodeled by Dr. Bosconovitch and goes on to combat Jack-2. P. Jack is seemingly destroyed by Jack-2 in the second tournament. This is the only Jack to appear in more than three games, appearing in the original Tekken, Tekken 2, Tekken Tag Tournament, and the console version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
  • Gun Jack (also known as "Jack-3") (introduced in Tekken 3) is a more advanced prototype, created by Jane in an attempt to revive her friend, Jack-2. She is successful in implanting her Jack-2's memories, including an energy shield inside him. However, as Gun Jack's energy shield ran out of power, it is destroyed by gunfire by the Tekken Force when he and Jane attempt to break into the Mishima Zaibatsu labs. G Corporation rescues her in time and retrieves Gun Jack's body as well.
  • Jack-4 (introduced in Tekken 5) is an upgrade of Gun Jack, created by G Corporation and the only one in the Jack series that is non-playable. Like P. Jack, this model has a separate personality. Unlike other models in the Jack series, this one is mass-produced to serve as the foot soldiers of the G Corporation. While these never participate in any tournament, they are sent by G Corporation's Nebraska branch to kill Kazuya Mishima after they no longer need him, and the subsequent battle in Hon-Maru almost results in the death of Heihachi Mishima. However Heihachi survived and blasted far away from Hon-Maru, until he recovered from a comatose for days when the fifth tournament was announced. These specific models have a self-destruct device embedded in them, indicated when one of them peels away its face to reveal a countdown. They also appear as enemies in the Scenario Campaign mode in Tekken 6 and a Tekken 5 flashback chapter of Tekken 7.
  • Jack-5 (introduced in Tekken 5) is an upgrade of Jack-4, created by Jane during her first time at G Corporation to participate in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. Currently upgraded into Jack-6 after Kazuya's take over.
  • Jack-6 (introduced in Tekken 6) is an upgrade of Jack-5, upgraded from Jack-5 with same model of previous version, with a minor body part upgrade by G Corporation with the mission of destroying the Mishima Zaibatsu in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6.
  • Jack-X (introduced in Street Fighter X Tekken) and his official tag partner, Bryan Fury were released on July 31, 2012, as downloadable content. Unlike Jack-5 – 6, this Jack can talk, although it was revealed to be in prototype stage between both of these main Jack series.
  • Jack-7 (introduced in Tekken 7) is an upgrade version of Jack-6. It finally has a model modification since it was ended with Jack-5, albeit recolored from Jack-6.
  • Jack-8 (introduced in Tekken 8) is an upgrade version of Jack-7. Aside receiving further upgrades based on the previous Jacks above, he is now equipped with both visor and summonable giant flying drill/laser cannon-hybrid weapon, and he can now utilizes projectile-based rocket punches, similar to Alisa Bosconovitch’s.

The Jack series robots also appear in Tekken Tag Tournament (Jack-2, Gun Jack, and Prototype Jack) and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (Jack-6 and Prototype Jack). The player's Jack character (barring original Jack, Prototype Jack, Jack-X and Jack-4) in most series is belonged to Jane.

In-game, the Jacks have traditionally shared a number of their moves with Kuma/Panda and Ganryu. In Tekken 5, however, Namco made a pronounced effort to differentiate all the shared moves between characters: the fighters still have a few similar moves, but their executions are completely different. In Tekken 5, Jack-5 is considered one of the most difficult characters to play. Inversely, in Tekken 6, Jack-6 is considered one of the easiest characters to learn.

Kazuya Mishima/Devil Kazuya/Kid Kazuya

King I/II

Kuma I/II

  • Nationality : Japanese (but not a citizen)
  • Fighting style : Kuma Shinken
  • Voiced by: Katsuhiro Harada (Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory) (Kuma II)
Kuma I

The first Kuma was once an abandoned cub in the forests of the Mishima estate. Heihachi Mishima found Kuma and took him in as his pet. Despite Kuma's unflinching loyalty to his master, Kuma liked to leave the side of Heihachi to sleep, even during the summer. This lazy approach means that Kuma's fighting style has never really matured and is very disjointed. This was demonstrated in the previous King of Iron Fist Tournament, where Kuma was easily defeated by Paul Phoenix. Kuma was very impressed with Paul's fighting prowess, as he thought that the only strong human was Heihachi. Heihachi was defeated in the last tournament by Kazuya Mishima, and so the two retreated into a mountain dojo to re-train. Kuma traveled to the King of Iron Fist Tournament 2 with his master, vowing to destroy Paul Phoenix this time, If anyone gets in his way, he would eat them, However Kuma was easily defeated by Paul Phoenix again.

Kuma II

Just after the second tournament Kuma died of old age, Heihachi trains a replacement, also named Kuma, Just like his father, the second Kuma is Heihachi Mishima's pet and bodyguard. Kuma is in love with Panda, but she neither feels the same nor has any interest in him. It is noted that although she does not love him, she does occasionally give him a thought, this Kuma is smarter than his father, and a good bodyguard for Heihachi. One day, when it was absorbed in watching TV, he suddenly went wild at the sight of a martial artist with a scarlet go-gi. It was Paul Phoenix, Kuma has trained since that day to defeat Paul in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 3. It doesn't think anything of Ogre, who is the God of Fighting; only of defeating Paul. However, during the third tournament Kuma was easily defeated by Paul. Kuma would finally accomplish his goal of defeating Paul in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 4. However, Kuma's happiness was brought to an abrupt end with the death of his master Heihachi. Kuma lived in sorrow over Heihachi's presumed death, but on seeing the uncertainty surrounding the Mishima Zaibatsu, Kuma realized that saving it would be the ultimate display of loyaly to his presumed deceased master. The chaos at Mishima Zaibatsu had already subsided when Kuma arrived, and he was thrown out of the building by security. Kuma had no choice but to return to the mountains.

When the Mishima Zaibatsu announced the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, Kuma decided he would enter the tournament and take back the Mishima Zaibatsu. During the fifth tournament Kuma would fight Paul Phoenix once again but just barely lost to him. Sometime after the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, since the death of his master, Heihachi Mishima, Kuma was convinced that he was the only one who could save the Mishima Zaibatsu. He set out to the Mishima Zaibatsu headquarters with resolve.

Waiting for him there was the new leader of the Zaibatsu, Jin Kazama. Easily defeated by Jin, Kuma was dumped out of a helicopter into the Hokkaido wilderness. Despite that, Kuma survived with an alarming toughness. He traverses the vast forests and enters the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6, determined to defeat Jin and take his place as the rightful successor of the Mishima Zaibatsu.

Following Heihachi's surprising return as a Mishima Zaibatsu leader since Jin's disappearance, Kuma was found by his master's Tekken Force army, and learned that his master promotes him to lead his own Tekken Force unit. Due to being busy with important tasks as a leader of his Tekken Force unit, Kuma forfeits from the King of Iron Fist Tournament 7 where his opponent is supposedly Paul again. Instead, Paul's opponent is Kuma's crush, Panda, unbeknownst to Kuma himself. Kuma's last known location during the tournament is at Philippine, where he and his unit provides supplies for the survivors of typhoon disaster at Philippine to earn the local country's trust, then becoming a final opponent for the Zaibatsu's employment exam. Although many young participants either quits or being defeated by him during the exam, one of typhoon survivor who participate the exam, Josie Rizal is the only one left, despite Kuma felt bad about her crybaby attitude.

Kunimitsu I

Kunimitsu made her debut in the original Tekken as a thief and rival of Yoshimitsu. A former member of Yoshimitsu's clan, known as the Manji Clan, she was banished from the clan for her theft. In order to make ends meet, Kunimitsu enters the King of the Iron Fist Tournament to attempt to steal valuable treasure from Michelle Chang. Michelle manages to defeat her in battle.

Two years later, upon learning that Yoshimitsu's sword also holds value, she enters the King of the Iron Fist Tournament 2 to try and steal it. When she confronts Yoshimitsu in battle, she is once again defeated.

After the previous two failures, Kunimitsu decides to retire from thievery and does not participate in any more King of the Iron Fist Tournaments. Meanwhile, she gives birth to her daughter, who would also take the title of Kunimitsu.

Kunimitsu I would also appear in the non-canon games Tekken Tag Tournament and Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

Kunimitsu II

Lee Chaolan (Chinese: 李 超狼; pinyin: Lǐ Chāoláng; Japanese: リー・チャオラン; Hepburn: Rī Chaoran) is the adoptive son of Heihachi Mishima, whose own son Kazuya's defeat is Lee's motivation for entering the numerous King of Iron Fist tournaments held throughout the Tekken series. Lee was adopted by Heihachi to provide a rival for Kazuya, who he felt was too weak to lead his Mishima Zaibatsu company. Lee studies in the United States alongside Paul Phoenix and Marshall Law. After Kazuya wins control of the company, Lee works as Kazuya's secretary, in addition to overseeing Kazuya's team of bodyguards and Dr. Bosconovitch's experiments, all while secretly hoping to take over the Zaibatsu. However, Lee is soon expelled from the Zaibatsu for unknown reasons while Heihachi disowns him, causing him to leave the world of fighting and pursuing a career in robotics.

Lee returns in Tekken 4 as a playboy whose robotics operation is a success. Upon learning that the Zaibatsu's rival G Corporation was attacked by the Tekken Force, Lee joins the fourth tournament after changing his appearance and calling himself Violet in order to conceal his identity, while hoping to test his new "Combot" experiment in the process. However, he is defeated in the later stages by Kazuya, whom Lee had believed to be dead, but he then learns someone else had controlled the Zaibatsu in Heihachi's absence. Believing it to be Kazuya, Lee enters the fifth tournament in Tekken 5 to take him out personally and regain control of the Zaibatsu, but upon learning that the culprit is Lee's adoptive paternal grandfather Jinpachi, he drops out of the tournament and returns to his business. After Kazuya legitimately takes control of the company, Lee enters the next tournament in attempt again to come in contact with Kazuya. In the game's "Scenario Campaign" story mode, Lee joins forces with Julia Chang, Lars Alexandersson, and Dr. Bosconovitch's android daughter Alisa, due to their shared objective of stopping Kazuya and Jin, but Lee and Lars are not aware at first that Alisa was created to serve Jin, thus acting as a mole for Lars. When Alisa is destroyed at the climax, Lee promises Lars that she will be reconstructed with his company's resources, which he finally succeeded at the same time of Heihachi's return in the seventh tournament, shortly before the latter's true demise at the hands of Kazuya in their final battle. During the seventh tournament, Lee also recruits a journalist who lost his family since the war in the sixth tournament, in order to help him and Lars, as well as a redeemed Jin to investigate how the Mishima affair first started.

Lee is also selectable in the non-canon games Tekken Tag Tournament, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Tekken 3D: Prime Edition, and Tekken Revolution.

Violet first introduced in Tekken 4 as an alter ego of Lee Chaolan and later returned for Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Lee disguise himself as Violet in order to enter the fourth King of Iron Fist Tournament without being found out by the Mishima Zaibatsu. He is also the CEO of Violet Systems. Though he was a palette swap of Lee in Tekken 4, he has his own character slot in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and is also the main character in the Fight Lab mode of the game. He again returned as a palette swap of Lee in Tekken 7.

Paul Phoenix (ポール・フェニックス, Pōru Fenikkusu) is a hot-headed American biker and martial artist who regularly enters the King of Iron Fist fighting tournaments to prove he is "the toughest fighter in the universe" while hoping to use the prize money to pay off his debts, yet he falls short of victory each time due to various circumstances.In the first Tekken, Paul remained undefeated in battle until he fought Kazuya Mishima to a draw. When he heard the announcement of the King of Iron Fist Tournament, he entered, seeing the opportunity to face his rival, Kazuya, and prove himself to be the best. Paul performed well in the first King of Iron Fist Tournament, and he went to go on to face Kazuya in the semi-finals but he was narrowly defeated after a furious battle that lasted for hours. Shaking his head in disbelief, Paul left the Mishima estate and returned to New York. He battles his way to the finals of the King of Iron Fist Tournament 2 in Tekken 2, earning the right to have a rematch with Kazuya, only to end up having to forfeit and replaced by Heihachi Mishima after getting stuck in traffic as a result of a multi-car collision on the expressway, and therefore unable to make the match on time. Paul goes undefeated throughout the entire King of Iron Fist Tournament 3 in Tekken 3, leaving victorious after defeating the opposing fighters including Kuma, Jin Kazama, and the god of fighting, Ogre. Unbeknownst to him, Ogre morphs into his monstrous form, True Ogre, after absorbing Heihachi's fighting force and is then defeated a second time by Paul's replacement Jin, who was reinstated in the tournament and cheating Paul out of his victory. As a result, by Tekken 4, Paul's dojo has gone out of business due to lack of students and he ends up a homeless alcoholic. He again enters the King of Iron Fist Tournament 4 in an attempt to get his life back together and go head-to-head with Kazuya, a rival he hadn't fought in over 20 years.

During the first two tournaments, Paul had fought and defeated Kuma, a large brown bear trained in combat by Heihachi. After the animal dies of old age, Heihachi trains a replacement, also named Kuma, who was easily defeated by Paul in the third tournament but Kuma manages to defeat him in the early stages of the fourth tournament. Paul adopts a new training regimen and gets his revenge against Kuma in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 in Tekken 5, but the match leaves Paul too exhausted to continue in the competition and he is forced to drop out. Again departing the tournament penniless and already burdened by his increasing debt, he wastes no time in entering the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 in Tekken 6 in hopes of finally easing his financial troubles. This time, he believes assembling a team would increase his chances of victory, and so he joins forces with old friend Marshall Law and boxer Steve Fox. While they did well in the tournament, Paul and Law ended up being paired against each other and they both fought to a draw, as a result they were unable to claim the top prize.

He entered the King of Iron Fist Tournament 7 in Tekken 7 with not only the intention, but the necessity of winning as the hefty prize would keep him in the black. Things didn't exactly pan out for him when the previous tournament got suspended, and that has placed him "into a life of destitution."

Paul returns in Tekken 8 as a playable character with new design and a significantly different hairstyle (although he was criticized for his new hairstyle).

Paul is also selectable in non-canon spin-off Tekken games such as Tekken Tag Tournament, Tekken Card Challenge, Tekken Advance, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, and Tekken Revolution, in addition to the crossover fighting game Street Fighter X Tekken. He is an unlockable character in the 2005 beat-'em-up multiplayer game Urban Reign. He also appears in SNK's mobile phone game The King of Fighters All Star. Paul appears as a Spirit in the Nintendo crossover video game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Wang Jinrei (Japanese: 王 驚雷(ワン・ジンレイ), Hepburn: Wan Jinrei, pinyin: Wáng Jīngléi) is an elderly Chinese old man who was a close friend of Heihachi Mishima's father Jinpachi, and lived as a recluse in the Mishima gardens. Wang tutors his distant relative Ling Xiaoyu (who debuts in Tekken 3) in the martial arts at a young age. He draws rival Marshall Law in the first King of Iron Fist Tournament, then enters the second tournament in Tekken 2 in order to fulfill the deceased Jinpachi's wishes of eliminating Heihachi and Jinpachi's grandson Kazuya, who have both followed the path of evil. Wang opts to face all challengers giving way to those adept enough to defeat Kazuya, however Wang was defeated by Jun Kazama during the King of Iron Fist Tournament 2. In Tekken 5, set two decades after Jinpachi's death, Wang receives a letter from Jinpachi, who is actually alive but has been possessed by a demon, having been brought to life after starving to death years previously and requests Wang's participation in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, Wang was defeated in the semi-finals of the tournament by Jin Kazama whose purpose was to wipe out the Mishima Family's cursed blood. Wang is currently the oldest playable human character in the Tekken games, being 82 during Tekken 1, 84 in Tekken 2 and 104 in Tekken 5 and 6, respectively.

Angel (Japanese: エンゼル, Hepburn: Enjeru) is a female supernatural entity and opposite of Devil. According to Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada, she is the representation of what is left of the goodness in Kazuya Mishima after he had been controlled by Devil, although she herself is not a part of Kazuya's soul. Her Tekken Tag Tournament 2 profile states that she wields the power to purify things, and carries a compassionate and a cruel side. Angel was a palette swap of Devil in Tekken 2 and Tekken Tag Tournament, but receives a distinct design for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 while her fighting style borrowed from Kazuya and Devil Jin. Because of this, she has a laser attack but it's clearly not a laser from her tiara, it's actually more like a light beam.

Angel's existence is likely the results from the first encounters and strange attractions between Kazuya and Jun Kazama, until Kazuya lost half of his power at time when he unknowingly caused Jun to be pregnant, shortly before Kazuya's defeat by Heihachi in second tournament, then the birth of Jin Kazama.

Baek Doo San (Japanese: 白頭山(ペク・トー・サン), Hepburn: Peku Tō San, Hangul: 백두산 Baek Dusan) is a South Korean Tae Kwon Do practitioner who debuted in Tekken 2 as the sub-boss of Marshall Law. He accidentally kills his father during a sparring session, causing him to destroy several dojos—including Law's—in a fit of rage. He then challenges, and loses to, Law in the second tournament. In Tekken 3, Baek is presumed dead after encountering Ogre, and his student Hwoarang enters the third tournament to avenge his master's supposed death, but Tekken 5 reveals that Ogre had beaten Baek into a yearlong coma. After his recovery, Baek begins teaching traditional Tae Kwon Do at military bases. Hwoarang is drafted into the South Korean military but flees to compete in the fourth tournament, for which he is arrested, but is also informed that Baek is alive. After Hwoarang completes his service, he and Baek enter the fifth tournament to test Hwoarang's skills, but Baek later withdraws after Hwoarang is injured in battle and lays unconscious in the hospital for three days. Once he recovers, Baek and Hwoarang return to Korea, and devote themselves solely to improving their fighting skills. Baek's last playable appearance is in Tekken 6, in which he and Hwoarang enter the tournament together once again.

Bruce Irvin (Japanese: ブルース・アーヴィン, Hepburn: Burūsu Āvin) is a muscular and Mohawked American Muay Thai practitioner. He lost his parents and older brother in his youth, and grew up in a violent environment. He longed to make a difference, and became a police officer. He was sent to Japan to investigate the multinational conglomerate Mishima Zaibatsu and its leader, Kazuya Mishima, who knew of Bruce's mission and therefore arranged for his flight to crash. Bruce survives the crash but becomes an amnesiac, and Kazuya hires him as his bodyguard. In Tekken 2, Bruce fought his old police partner Lei Wulong, who had entered the tournament to arrest Kazuya. Bruce was defeated and attempted to escape on another plane, but it somehow exploded later. In truth, Bruce survives and fakes his death off-screen. He is then absent from the series until returning in Tekken 5 as an unlockable character. After becoming reacquainted with Kazuya Mishima in the tournament, Bruce assists Kazuya in taking over G Corporation, a biotech firm, when its Nebraska branch which fully recovers Kazuya from his previous injuries suddenly betrays him. G Corporation then wages war with the Mishima Financial Group, now led by Jin Kazama, and Bruce becomes the captain at G Corporation's private corps and is enlisted by Kazuya to lead the army on battlefields. G Corporation attempts to gain an advantage by placing an enormous bounty on Jin, which results in the staging of the sixth tournament, in which Bruce is selectable from the start and participates in an attempt to capture Jin.

Bruce makes a brief appearance in Tekken: The Motion Picture, serving as Lee Chaolan's bodyguard and fighting Jack-2 on a boat en route to the tournament.

Brenda Brathwaite of The Escapist, in 2008, included Bruce among many black fighting game characters, such as Mortal Kombat's Jax and Street Fighter's Balrog, as "either non-existent or consistent in their overall attributes." Bruce's Tekken 5 render was additionally the lone character illustration that was used for the article.

Jun Kazama (風間 準, Kazama Jun) is an officer of the wildlife protection organization WWWC. She is called "The Chosen One" by her relatives. She is highly psychic, being able to sense that Kazuya Mishima's power stemmed from Devil. At the WWWC's orders, she sets out to arrest Kazuya, who smuggles environmentally-protected animals, Jun decides to enter the King of Iron Fist Tournament 2. When the second tournament was coming to an end, Jun comes to the realization that Kazuya's supernatural strength stems from Devil, though she is attracted to him by a mystic force beyond her control. Besides her duty to arrest Kazuya, she wants to free him of his evil power and drops out of the tournament as a result. At some point during this time, Jun became pregnant with Kazuya's child; whilst Jun was able to cause conflict within Kazuya, swaying Devil's hold over him, ultimately she was unable to prevent him from going to meet his father, Heihachi Mishima, in the tournament finals. After Kazuya is thrown into a volcano by Heihachi in the conclusion of the tournament, parts of Devil leave him and unsuccessfully attempt to possess Jun's unborn child. She flees to the forests of Yakushima, where she raises her child, Jin, away from evil and danger. 15 years later, before the events of Tekken 3, Jun senses the approaching of Ogre and warns Jin to seek out his grandfather Heihachi should anything happen to her. One night, Ogre attacks and knocks out Jin. When Jin wakes up, the Kazama's house has burned to the ground and Jun is missing. Jin is devastated and swears revenge on Ogre.

Although Jun did not appear in subsequent canonical games in the series, she is still mentioned throughout. She appears as a soul or vision in Jin Kazama's Tekken 4 ending, which persuades Jin to spare Heihachi's life in honor of herself. She is also mentioned numerous times by Jin and Kazuya during the prologue of the Scenario Campaign mode of Tekken 6, which retells the main events of previous games. Outside of the main series, Jun appears as a playable character in the non-canonical Tekken Tag Tournament as well as its sequel, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, where she is fought as a boss and transforms into Unknown in the final stage after defeating her. She is also playable in the free-to-play spin-off Tekken Revolution.

Jun made her return to the canonical story of Tekken in Tekken 8 as she was revealed to be a playable character during the gameplay trailer footage at The Game Awards 2022. Despite previously being presumed dead, due to her encounter with Ogre prior to the events of Tekken 3, series director Katsuhiro Harada confirmed that Jun never actually died, but was simply missing.


Unknown (アンノウン, Announ) made her debut in 1999 in the non-canonical Tekken Tag Tournament, where she serves as the final boss. Unknown also appears as a rival unit in the tactical role-playing game Project X Zone 2.

Unknown appears to be a tortured soul who has been enslaved by the "Forest Demon" (which takes the form of a wolf-like appearance and appears behind her in fights, controlling and mimicking her actions). She has many demonic traits, such as glowing yellow eyes and no sclera, and a devil symbol tattooed on her upper right arm which resembles that of Jin Kazama's. Her default "costume" appears to have her otherwise nude body mostly covered in purple with short, dark brown hair, shiny body paint, or oil as if she had been submerged in it to her chest. Her second, alternate costume shows her dressed in the burnt, ripped remains of a dark brown dress, with bandages wrapped around her arms, shins, and instep.

Unknown did not have a story as Tag Tournament was non-canonical, though her ending shows her finally defeating the Forest Demon and therefore freeing herself. Her appearance as the final boss in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 looks like Jun's alternate form (black hair with a similar fashion to Jun, though her eyes have demon-like pupils and this time has normal white sclera). An artbook included in the Tekken 6 Arcade Stick Bundle revealed that she was meant to be Jun's sister enslaved by the "Forest Demon" before the scenario was ultimately dropped.

Similar to Mokujin, Unknown does not have an original moveset. Instead, she mimics other characters' fighting styles (with some exceptions), though her fighting style defaults to that of Jun Kazama. In Tag Tournament 2, she instead uses Jun's moveset with added boss-like moves such as summoning spikes and giant hands. In both her incarnations of the first Tag Tournament and its sequel, Unknown has originally appeared as an unplayable final boss in the arcade versions. She was later made a playable character in the console version of both games, with the former giving her the ability to freely switch her fighting styles using analog stick and the latter toning down her boss moves.

Roger, Roger Jr. and Alex

  • Nationality : Unknown
  • Fighting style : Commando Wrestling

Roger family line and Alex are comic-relief characters who make their first appearances in Tekken 2. They are genetically modified animals created by Dr. Bosconovitch, under Kazuya's orders. Roger (ロジャー, Rojā) was crafted from kangaroo DNA, and Alex (アレックス, Arekkusu) from Dromaeosaurid fossil samples. However, Kazuya considered them worthless and wanted to kill them, but they escaped and met Armor King, who schooled them in wrestling. Alex and Roger compete in the second Iron Fist Tournament, where Jun Kazama, a WWWC wildlife-protection program officer, is dispatched to arrest Kazuya. She finds Roger and Alex and relocates them to a safe location in Australia. Alex disappears from the series canon thereafter while Roger's story is expanded in Tekken 5, in which he is not playable but appears in the game's cinematic sequences, where he, now renamed as Roger Sr. (ロジャーシニア, Rojā Shinia) is shown to be married with a son named Roger Jr., who is a kangaroo with human attributes like his father. After Roger Sr. is abducted by Mishima Zaibatsu, Roger Jr. enters the fifth tournament to find him but discovers that he was not abducted but instead secretly living a luxurious lifestyle. In Tekken 6, Roger Sr., again not playable, and his wife are since divorced but she suffers financial hardship without his presence and currently. She and Roger Jr. both participate in the sixth tournament in hopes of establishing financial security. Roger and Alex both appear in the noncanonical Tekken Tag Tournament and Tekken Tag Tournament 2, in which Roger Jr. is playable in Roger Sr.'s stead. As Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is semi-canon midquel between Tekken 6 and Tekken 7, Alex and Roger Jr.’s endings eventually ties to Roger Sr.’s reconciliation with his family.

Ancient Ogre/True Ogre

  • Origin : None (somewhere out of space)
  • Fighting style : Personal style, sampled from many fighters
  • Voiced by : Bill Butts (Tekken: Bloodline)

Ogre (オーガ, Ōga) is believed to be a biological weapon abandoned on earth by an ancient alien race, while he is additionally worshipped by ancient Aztecs as the "God of Fighting". In Tekken 3 (1997), Heihachi Mishima sends his personal army, the Tekken Force, to search a temple in central Mexico, but they are promptly obliterated by Ogre. Having witnessed his power firsthand, Heihachi seeks an opportunity to use him in hopes of creating the ultimate life form while staving off his own aging process, and therefore stages the third edition of the King of Iron Fist Tournament held throughout the Tekken series in order to draw Ogre out. In the meantime, Ogre kills King in combat, beats Baek Doo San into a yearlong coma, and supposedly kills Jin's mother Jun Kazama. Paul Phoenix defeats Ogre in the tournament finals, but he then quits the competition under the impression that he has won, when he had one last opponent remaining in Ogre's true form, True Ogre. Heihachi then collects blood samples and skin tissue from the creature in order to splice his genomes with his own, but the project is unsuccessful, as he is missing a key ingredient called the "Devil Gene", which the series protagonist Jin Kazama and his father Kazuya possess. In Tekken 5 (2004), Ogre is playable in the "Arcade History" mode and is the final boss of the "Devil Within" minigame, where clones of him and Heihachi are defeated by Jin Kazama.

Ogre also appears in the non-canon games Tekken Card Challenge and Tekken Mobile, and is playable in the spinoff titles Tekken Tag Tournament and in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, whereas the latter Tag game has his True Ogre form as part of the starting roster and simply dubbed as Ogre since its arcade version, while his initial form, Ancient Ogre is exclusively free downloadable post-launch character.

Formerly an officer in the International Police Organization, Bryan was killed during a shootout in Hong Kong one day. His corpse was transported to the laboratory of a mad scientist named Dr. Abel in his attempt to complete his project of forming a cyborg army. Abel thought that a perfect cyborg must have the mechanics built by his rival Bosconovitch, so he reanimated Fury's body and sent him to collect data on similar plans by his rival, Dr. Bosconovitch. Bryan enters the King of Iron Fist Tournament 3, targeting Yoshimitsu, who has strong ties with Bosconovitch, but during the tournament, Bryan was defeated by Yoshimitsu.

In Tekken 4,Dr. Abel abandons Bryan when Heihachi Mishima and the Mishima Zaibatsu corporation recruits him as its top scientific advisor. This sends Bryan into a murderous rage, and he enters the King of Iron Fist Tournament 4, feeling victory will force Abel to change his body, thus becoming the most incredible being in existence once again. This does not happen, and after his loss, Bryan instead uses his last ounce of strength to knock Abel out before losing consciousness and left him to die in the burning laboratory. Yoshimitsu brings him to Dr. Bosconovitch, who promises to transfer Bryan's mind into a new body, although it will take a whole year.

In Tekken 5, however, Bryan awakens a month later. Bosconovitch tells Bryan that his body was too complex to work with, but as a last resort, he had installed a perpetual power generator in him as an emergency measure. Upon learning this, Bryan attacks Bosconovitch and the Manji clan members assigned to guard the doctor, and leaves the laboratory. Bryan enters the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 to test his performance with the generator installed, unaware that Yoshimitsu is pursuing him for revenge. Yoshimitsu's repeated meddling hinders Bryan's hopes of unlocking the generator's true powers in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. Soon afterwards, Yoshimitsu defeats Bryan and his frustration reaches its pinnacle, and he begins to destroy everything in sight after leaving the tournament. Driven by rage, he ventures to various battlefields around the world, indiscriminately leveling everything in his way into rubble. However, he soon grows tired of the same thing repeating itself countless times. Around this time, he catches wind of the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6. Hungry for more capable prey, Bryan headed for the tournament to prove his mettle. Bryan also appears in Tekken 7, being one of the 18 characters available in the first location tests of the game.

Bryan also appears in Tekken Card Challenge, Tekken Tag Tournament, Tekken 3D: Prime Edition, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, and Tekken Revolution. Bryan appears in Capcom-made crossover fighting game Street Fighter X Tekken as a DLC character with Jack-X as his official tag partner. His Swap Costume is modeled after Urien. According to the download blurb, with his powers and abilities being recognized by Urien, the second in command of a mysterious organization, Bryan is brought into their ranks. Additionally, M. Bison's Swap Costume is modeled after Bryan's appearance.

Dr. Bosconovitch originally worked for the Mishima Zaibatsu. During the first Tekken, the Manji ninja clan (led by Yoshimitsu) raided the Mishima Zaibatsu's vault. During the raid, Yoshimitsu lost his arm and was found by Bosconovitch who helped him escape and fitted him with a mechanical arm. Dr. Bosconovitch was kidnapped by Kazuya Mishima in the run-up to The King of Iron Fist Tournament 2 and was forced to work for him. Some of the many projects involved the creation of the bio-weapons Roger and Alex, as well as the completion of the Prototype Jack unit. He began the "Cold Sleep" project as a means of preserving his daughter's body (who seemingly died) by using Nina Williams and Anna Williams as test subjects. After completing his tasks, and before being executed, Doctor Bosconovitch is rescued by the friend he helped save previously, Yoshimitsu. Nineteen years later, he contracted a rare disease that affects the spine as a result of working on his Cold Sleep project. In order to cure himself and to revive his daughter, he needed the blood of the fighting god, Ogre. He turned to an old friend, Yoshimitsu, for help. Yoshimitsu entered the King of Iron Fist Tournament 3 and was successful in obtaining a sample of Ogre's blood after Jin Kazama had killed it. Dr. Bosconovitch appears in Bryan Fury's Tekken 4 ending. In it, he explains to Bryan that he will now mechanize him and allow him to be completely reborn in a new incarnation. Bryan lays supine on the table and Bosconovitch holds a gun-shaped device containing sleeping gas. Bidding him sweet dreams, he injects the gas into Bryan. Throughout, he speaks in a calm and gentle tone. However, the doctor found Bryan's body too complex, and he instead installed a perpetual generator. Bryan proceeded to attack the doctor, as well as Manji Clan members who were with him. While the members were slain, Bosconovitch survived, though he was severely injured. In Tekken 6, he creates an android in his daughter's image, Alisa Bosconovitch.

Dr. Bosconovitch appears in Tekken Tag Tournament's mini game Tekken Bowl mode, where he can be seen in the crowd of people cheering. It is even possible to "take him out" using a bowling ball. He also appears in Tekken Hybrid where he returns again as an onlooker in the crowd of Tekken Bowl (there is also a trophy named after him called "Doctor B!" with the description being "K.O. an onlooker in Tekken Bowl" with an icon of Bryan as the picture). He returns in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 as part of a free update. Although he does not appear in person in Death by Degrees, Nina Williams' spin-off game, he is mentioned several times in journals and documents, and he has a laboratory on the Solitaria Penitentiary island, although it's abandoned. Dr. Bosconovitch was mentioned by several Tekken characters in Capcom-made crossover fighting game Street Fighter X Tekken.

Forest Law (Japanese: フォレスト・ロウ, Hepburn: Foresuto Rou) is the good-natured son of Marshall Law who made his first playable appearance in the Tekken series replacing his father Marshall Law in Tekken 3. He hopes to duplicate his father's greatness as a fighter but is forbidden by Marshall to enter any contests. However, Forest's friend and sparring partner Paul Phoenix convinces him to enter the third King of Iron Fist Tournament behind his father's back, which causes a rift between Paul and Marshall. Forest is mentioned in Tekken 5 as having been hospitalized after a motorcycle accident, which becomes Marshall's motive for entering the tournament. He is playable in Tekken Tag Tournament as a replacement of his father Marshall Law and in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 as a console-exclusive character.

Hwoarang was born in South Korea, a proud student of Baek Doo San and extremely proficient in the martial art of Taekwondo, Hwoarang used his skills to gamble in street fights with his other gang members. During these street fights, Hwoarang would lure his opponents in by sending his gang members to pose as weaker fighters. Once his gang members had been defeated, Hwoarang would enter and defeat his opponents to win the money at stake. One day, Hwoarang lured in an opponent by the name of Jin Kazama and they fought to a draw. This was the first time Hwoarang did not outright win a match and he immediately rushed to his master to tell him the news. Upon arriving at Baek Doo San's dojo, Hwoarang finds that his master had been apparently slain by Ogre, The God of Fighting. Hwoarang enters The King of Iron Fist Tournament 3 to defeat Jin Kazama and to seek revenge for his master, Hwoarang got to fight Jin in the later stages of the tournament but he was narrowly defeated after an hours-long fight very similar to the fight between Jin's father Kazuya Mishima and his rival Paul Phoenix in the first King of Iron Fist Tournament.

Returning to South Korea, Hwoarang was drafted into the South Korean military and was assigned to a special operations division. Although his successes in various missions were highly regarded along with his prowess at Taekwondo and combat techniques, his penchant for disobeying rules and orders gave his senior officers more than a few headaches. Hwoarang was uninterested in military life and felt a strange emptiness within him. He longingly recalled the days of hustling money in street fights and the rush he experienced from hand-to-hand combat. He often thought of one fight in particular - the fight against Jin Kazama. These longings could not be quelled by the military. One day, Hwoarang found out about the announcement of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4. Hwoarang's blood stirred. He would defeat Jin, Heihachi Mishima, and anyone else who dared to challenge him to claim the Mishima Zaibatsu. Filled with excitement he hasn't felt in years, Hwoarang slipped away from the military base and headed for the Tournament.

The South Korean Army took Hwoarang into custody during the later stages of the King of Iron Fist Tournament 4, keeping him from his long-awaited fight with Jin Kazama. Upon his arrival at the embassy, Hwoarang is granted an official pardon by the ambassador and is given urgent military papers. Hwoarang immediately flies to South Korea to complete his training, which he completes in time to enter The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, once again hoping to get a rematch with Jin Kazama, while also have a brief reunion with his master, Baek, who he thought was killed, standing as a visitor. Hwoarang hears the details from Baek. In The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, Hwoarang faced Jin and defeated him in the later stages of the tournament. While Jin was lying on the ground, suddenly, he roars paranormally and produces a gale that blows Hwoarang away. From Jin's back, two black wings spread, and Jin stands up in his devil form. Hwoarang is at his wits end. He is not able to fight back, and soon he is knocked unconscious.

When Hwoarang wakes up, he finds himself in the hospital, and Baek is sitting besides him. He ignores his nurse and tries to move from his bed. He falls down in order to beseech Baek to make him stronger. After leaving the hospital, Hwoarang starts training with unprecedented devoutness in order to defeat the "paranormal" Jin. Thus, with the announcement of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6, he prepares for the tournament.

Hwoarang appears in Tekken 7, being one of the eighteen characters initially available in the game. In both of his and Devil Jin's endings reveals that Hwoarang temporarily lost his right eye after saving Jin from a grenade thrown by some of the UN soldiers who are pursuing Jin. His ending however, is correctly takes place before Lars rescue Jin, where Hwoarang finally defeated his rival's devil form, but still unsatisfied about killing a monster like Jin.

Hwoarang later returns in Tekken 8, where his right eye heals, and dyes his hair color back to orange six months later.

Mokujin (Japanese: 木人(もくじん), "wood-person") is a training dummy made from a 2,000-year-old tree. He comes alive in the presence of great evil and it was said that he would become the world's last resort when humanity is unable to deal with them. While he appears to be mute (his "voice" is the sounds of wood-clicks), he is able to communicate with the humans using telepathy. Due to his experience as a dummy, he is able to imitate any fighting style. In Tekken 3, Mokujin is awakened when Ogre, the God of Fighting, was released. After Jin Kazama defeated True Ogre in The King of Iron Fist Tournament 3, Mokujin grew lifeless once more, but he had a smile on his face. In Tekken 5, with the awakening of another powerful evil entity (Jinpachi Mishima), Mokujin has come to life once more. After the defeat of Jinpachi Mishima, Mokujin again became lifeless. In Tekken 6, Mokujin again comes to life when a being of great evil and the source of Devil Gene, Azazel awakened. Other than the main series, Mokujin appears in the non-canonical game Tekken Tag Tournament and its sequel Tekken Tag Tournament 2. He also appears as one of the unplayable penultimate bosses in free-to-play game Tekken Revolution.


Tetsujin (鉄人(てつじん), lit. "iron person") first appearing in Tekken Tag Tournament. Whereas Mokujin is constructed of wood, Tetsujin is constructed of iron. Both characters use the fighting styles of the other characters, and they both switch fighting styles between each round. While Mokujin's "fighting style" is referred as "Mokujin-ken", Tetsujin's is called "Tetsujin-ken", and similarly is the only sentence written in the movelist screen. He rarely appears in subsequent games, although Mokujin can be customized to look like Tetsujin in later installments. Tetsujin also appears as one of the unplayable penultimate bosses in free-to-play game Tekken Revolution and Tekken (Mobile).


Kinjin (金人(キンじん), Kinjin, lit. "gold(en) person") is a secret unplayable boss character in free-to-play game Tekken Revolution. His design is likely based on an easter egg in the console version of Tekken Tag Tournament, where meeting certain requirements would cause Tetsujin's normally silver color to turn gold. In Tekken Revolution, he is basically Tetsujin made of gold wearing a crown, glasses, mustache, bow tie, and a cape. He is one of the Stage 7 penultimate bosses in Arcade mode, along with Mokujin, Tetsujin, Heihachi Mishima, and Jinpachi Mishima.

Panda is, as her name implies, always depicted as a giant panda with pink or orange glowing bands and a green holster wrapped around her shoulder. The holster has grass inside of it. Since her introduction, she has always been a palette swap of Kuma, and thus has the same move set as him. In Tekken Tag Tournament 2, she is separated from Kuma and is given her own slot, even though she still has the same move set as Kuma's. They have the same moves, stance, and animations (shown before and after a fight), but their endings are always, in some way, different. Their animations (shown before and after a fight) are however differentiated in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, then followed by Tekken 7 where their movesets are identical except for their Rage Arts.

Panda is the pet of Ling Xiaoyu in the games since Tekken 3. Kuma is in love with Panda, but she is not interested in him romantically. Panda is cared for at Ling Xiaoyu's high school. To participate in the tournament, Ling moved to the Mishima Industrial College in Japan. Heihachi taught Panda advanced bear fighting so that she could act as a bodyguard for Xiaoyu throughout the series.

Tiger Jackson

  • Nationality : Unknown
  • Fighting style : Capoeira

Tiger Jackson (Japanese: タイガー・ジャクソン, Hepburn: Taigā Jakuson) is a palette swap of Eddy Gordo, first appearing in Tekken 3 and returned in the non-canonical Tekken Tag Tournament and in the console version of its sequel, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, now with his own character slot. With a prominent Afro and Blaxploitation design elements, Tiger Jackson was initially one of the unused names and concepts of Eddy Gordo from during the development of Tekken 3. (Gordo was also named "Rally Jackson" during development.) The character's identity is unknown, although many originally interpreted him as an alter ego of Eddy. In Tekken Tag Tournament in Eddy Gordo's ending, they both can be seen as two different people. Also the Wii U version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2, which comes with a biography for each character, implies that they are different individuals as the two are "...not at all related."

Tiger also appears in the background of the Pool Party stage of Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection. He is also a character in the game Pac-Man Fever.

Combot/Super Combot DX

  • Nationality : Unknown
  • Fighting style : Mimicry (T4), Still learning (TTT2)

Combot (Japanese: コンボット, Hepburn: Konbotto) makes his lone series appearance in Tekken 4 as a general-purpose robot created by Lee Chaolan for the fourth tournament, crafted to be the ultimate fighting machine. It is programmed to learn every fighter's style as it progresses through the tournament. It was also used to increase the chance of Lee gaining the Mishima Zaibatsu if Heihachi were to be defeated by Combot. Production of the prototype was rushed, resulting in glitches such as using only one fighting style at a time while switching through them randomly. The robot utilizes some physical attributes of other characters, such as brandishing Yoshimitsu's sword or having a long tail similar to King's.

Combot is a playable training dummy in Tekken Tag Tournament 2's "Fight Lab" tutorial. Lee (as his alter ego, Violet) completes work on Combot as part of his Super Combot DX Plan. However, Lee is caught up in the success of his handiwork that he neglects to pay attention to the robot and it explodes. He constructs a second model and then kidnaps Heihachi, Jin, and Kazuya as test subjects until Jin destroys it.

Craig Marduk (クレイグ・マードック, Kureigu Mādokku) was an Australian undefeated Vale Tudo fighter for four years, but when he was involved in a minor scandal, his sponsors were glad to release him. He had been living around the world in such countries like New Zealand, Japan, Thailand, and Brazil before eventually expatriating to the United States. He was imprisoned in Arizona for accidentally killing someone during a bar fight. Marduk was suddenly released thanks to an anonymous benefactor. Upon his release he received a mysterious package containing a newspaper clipping regarding The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4 and an airline ticket. The man that Marduk killed in the bar brawl was Armor King, and Armor King's protégé, King, was the one who paid for Marduk's release, wanting him to enter the tournament in order to find him and exact revenge for killing his mentor. The two met at the tournament, where King sufficiently defeated him, leaving Marduk hospitalized. Later, King paid a visit to Marduk in the hospital to finish him off, but instead spared him after noticing a photograph showing Marduk and his family beside Marduk's bed. Enraged over his loss, Marduk began training harder than he ever had before, and managed to turn his body into the ultimate weapon. Wearing Armor King's black jaguar mask, Marduk entered a Vale Tudo tournament and challenged King after emerging undefeated. Upon the announcement of the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, Marduk entered, knowing King would be there, he hoped to even the score. The two fought in The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, but victory and defeat eluded both fighters, and, in defeat, they found friendship. While returning to the waiting room, Marduk was attacked. Catching only a glimpse of the attacker's back as he fled, Marduk could have sworn he looked exactly like the man he was convicted of killing, Armor King. Determined to learn the assailant's true identity, Marduk set out with King to participate in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6. Marduk is later seen digging up Armor King's grave when Armor King shows up behind him, Marduk asks him who he is and suddenly King shows, they question him and he replies that he is "Armor King, nothing more nothing less." Marduk finds this situation crazy as he killed him with his own hands. The other Armor King reveals that he is original Armor King's brother and Marduk killed him, he then says he will never forgive him. They fight with both ending up in hospital and King enters The King of Iron Fist Tournament 7 in order to pay for their hospital bills. As Marduk recovers first during that tournament, he was about to finish an unconscious younger Armor King, until King stops him by reminding his redemption by King, likely because King had deja vu back in the end of Tekken 4, and thus was suggested by him to write a challenge letter themed retirement match to Armor King once he is recovered, "if Marduk wins, the young Armor King must surrender his mask out of shame, unless Armor King won to finally put Marduk to retire from fighting", as the black masked wrestler accepts.

Marduk also appears in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Tekken 3D: Prime Edition. He also appears in Capcom-made crossover fighting game Street Fighter X Tekken, with King as his official tag partner. His Swap Costume is modeled after Hugo, the character from Final Fight. It gives Marduk Hugo's hair, as well as Hugo's lower part of clothes with chains. According to the download blurb, while teaming up with Hugo, Marduk decided a slight wardrobe change was in order.

Steve Fox (Japanese: スティーブ・フォックス, Hepburn: Sutību Fokkusu) is a British boxer whose mother is Nina Williams and aunt is Anna Williams; she was impregnated via in vitro fertilization and gave birth while held captive by Heihachi Mishima as one of the test subjects for the Doctor Abel's cryogenic sleep studies on the children like Steve to create a perfect Tekken Force's super soldiers. Steve was adopted in his infancy by Emma Kliesen (Leo's mother) until he grew up and was secretly sent to an orphanage by Emma to cover his status from Zaibatsu's eye. This led to the super soldier project being cancelled, and at that time Emma resigned to G Corporation. Steve is one of the survivors, but left a scar on his left arm for the rest of his life from Abel's experiment. Many years later, Steve became a middleweight boxing champion while searching for the truth about his past. While on the run from the Mafia after refusing to throw a fight for them, Steve enters the fourth King of Iron Fist tournament, which he loses but learns that Nina is his mother. During the events of the fifth tournament, Steve succeeds in destroying the Mishima Zaibatsu's research institute. However, his boxing career dries up due to the world war started by Jin Kazama, but he is invited by Marshall Law and Paul Phoenix to train with them in the martial arts. During his training in a boxing gym, his left arm is hurting while also remembering the experiment he had from Mishima Zaibatsu and good memories with Emma. He later found Nina in a chapel during her private undercover mission as a bride to assassinate a certain mob boss (later revealed to be a fiancée of Steve's aunt, Anna Williams from G Corporation), ever since she resigned from Mishima Zaibatsu after Heihachi's return and Jin's presumable disappearance. Once Steve defeated her, Nina explains to her son everything she knows when she was captured by Zaibatsu, led by Heihachi for Abel's experiments. After Steve finally got as much information from his mother as he could, Nina warns him that he will never be her son because she couldn't care less about him. Unfortunately, the Tekken Force are after Nina for leaving Heihachi and being branded a traitor. Steve holds off the Tekken Forces allowing Nina to escape. Steve is playable in Tekken 3D: Prime Edition, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Tekken Revolution, and Street Fighter X Tekken. His main costumes feature the red, white and blue of the Union Jack.

British actor and musician Luke Goss played Steve in the 2009 Tekken film. His storyline from the games is changed to his being a retired fighter with no relation to Nina and instead becoming the friend and mentor of Jin Kazama after Jin defeats Marshall in the tournament. Steve is later killed by Jackhammers while breaking Jin and other imprisoned participants out of their holding cells.

In 2012, Gelo Gonzales of FHM listed Steve and Street Fighter character Balrog as one of his "10 Awesome Fantasy Fights" for Street Fighter X Tekken: "Balrog's the aggressive, in-your-face, no-nonsense Mike Tyson type. Steve, on the other hand, is a pretty boy British boxer who likes to weave around and counter at the ideal moment." Samuel Riley of GamesRadar ranked Steve fourth in his selection of the "7 baddest boxers in video games" in 2014: "Decked out in Union Jack shorts and a tasty pair of golden gloves, Steve favours punishing body strikes to the precision jab, a high stakes style that metes out as just much pain as it invites."

Asuka's official story states that she was taught Kazama-style traditional martial arts by her father, a dojo-master near Osaka, ever since she was a small girl. By nature, Asuka believes very strongly in justice and devotes much of her free time to being a "pacifist" vigilante who is breaking up fights. At the time in which the game takes place, Asuka is 17 years old and is a high school student. Asuka returned home from school one day to find that her dojo was in shambles. The students there had been beaten severely and her father was so badly hurt that he had to be taken to the hospital. In the next several days, a detective from Hong Kong, Lei Wulong, came to her and explained that the culprit would likely be entering The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. In order to get her personal revenge and redeem her dojo, Asuka enters the tournament as well. In the tournament, Asuka managed to beat a Monegasque teenager, Lili, causing a bitter rivalry between the two (although most of the conflicts mainly start from Lili's side). However, she was unable to find Feng Wei, and, as the tournament ended, she returned to her calm and normal life. Her life did not stay peaceful for long though, as Asuka discovered that the man responsible for the terrible war going on all over the world, Jin Kazama, is a relative. She enters The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 in order to capture Jin. However, due to Lili keeps getting in her way, an annoyed Asuka needs to take her down first in The King of Iron Fist Tournament 7. It also reveals that Asuka's family dojo is at a brick of financial decline, until she unexpectedly got an aid from Lili, who now own her dojo, even after she won against the noisy Rochefort heir in the seventh tournament, much to her dismay. Although her farcical shenanigan with Lili ultimately ends, by the time when the news after the seventh tournaments comes into light and endangering her hometown, such as the true death of Jin's grandfather and the old Mishima Zaibatsu leader, Heihachi Mishima at the hands of her said relative's father and G Corporation leader, Kazuya, whose true nature as a devil like Jin becomes known to the public during Tekken 8.

Asuka has a summer version names Summer Asuka who's introduced in Tekken Mobile. Summer Asuka has the same fighting style and the same Rage Art like Asuka.

Emilie De Rochefort (エミリ・ド・ロシュフォール, Emiri do Roshufōru), is a Monégasque teenager who is the only child of a pacifistic oil tycoon. At the age of twelve, she had been held for ransom by a group of thugs, but unwittingly took out one of her captors in her attempt to break free. Lili consequently took pleasure in the thrill of defeating her opponents, but her father wants her to grow into a prim and proper lady and not a fighter. She nonetheless steals his private jet to travel abroad and compete in street fighting competitions. This gains the attention of an unknown individual who invites her to compete in the King of Iron Fist tournament, but Lili notices that the tournament organizer, the Mishima Zaibatsu corporation, had caused her father problems in the past. This makes her determined to emerge victorious and put an end to this situation, but she is thwarted by her rival Asuka Kazama, a relative of Mishima Zaibatsu CEO Jin Kazama. Before Lili can attempt to seek revenge, her father learns of her participation and confines her to the family home as punishment. However, the Zaibatsu later annexes her father's oil fields, negatively impacting the business and causing him to suffer anxiety attacks. Lili therefore again defies her father's policy of nonviolence and enters the sixth tournament to take back his property. In Tekken 6's "Scenario Campaign" story mode, Lili attempts to infiltrate the Mishima Zaibatsu and hunt down Jin, but she first has to go through Lars Alexandersson and Alisa Bosconovitch in combat, which she fails. Gracious in defeat, she provides the duo with a new sport utility vehicle that she had previously received as a birthday gift, and makes them guarantee in turn that they will defeat Jin. In Tekken 7, Lili enters the seventh tournament without telling her father for the second time to fight Asuka once again. Even after being defeated, nevertheless, Tekken 8 reveals that she learned her rival’s dojo at Osaka is under a financial decline, and immediately own it before its bankruptcy on right timing before the seventh tournament was cancelled, where the G Corporation’s current CEO, Kazuya Mishima finally killed his father who organize the tournament, Heihachi. However, to Asuka’s dismay, Lili moves to the former’s home as well. At some point, Lili owns a pet cat named Salt. Although her daily farcical shenanigan to annoy her rival comes to end, when the news of Heihachi’s true death in a previous tournament comes into light, and Kazuya publicly reveal himself as a devil like Jin few months later.

Lili is also selectable in the non-canon games Tekken Tag Tournament 2; the crossover title Street Fighter X Tekken with Asuka as her official tag partner; and the 2013 free-to-play game Tekken Revolution exclusive to the PlayStation 3.

Though he was the top student, Feng killed his master after he was scolded for fighting outside the dojo. Feng seeks the secrets of the God Fist scrolls that were stolen by the Mishima family, leading to his competing in the fifth King of Iron Fist Tournament and his destruction of Asuka Kazama's dojo in the process of his search. and he is ultimately successful in retrieving the scrolls.

Feng then traveled all around the world and defeated many martial artists until he heard rumors of another King of Iron Fist Tournament, which persuades him to join said tournament. He was defeated by Wang Jinrei in the later stages of the tournament, despite first thinking that Feng is arrogant due him not responding when spoken to, Wang starts to respect him after he accepts defeat, and urges him to continue his training.

Jinpachi Mishima

  • Nationality : Japanese
  • Fighting style : Mishima Style Fighting Karate (infused with an unidentified demonic powers)
  • Voiced by : Chikao Otsuka and Takeshi Aono

Jinpachi Mishima was the original founder of the Mishima Zaibatsu and the father of Heihachi, father-in-law of Kazumi Mishima, paternal grandfather of Kazuya and Lars Alexandersson, adoptive paternal grandfather of Lee Chaolan and paternal great-grandfather of Jin Kazama. Unlike most Mishima (who were ruthless and power hungry), Jinpachi was a man of honor and wisdom as he showed compassion to his grandson Kazuya when the latter was a child (this is possibly another reason Heihachi resented Jinpachi so much) and was friends with Wang Jinrei. However, Jinpachi's life took a turn for the worse when the greedy Heihachi staged a coup d'état and stole the company from him. Jinpachi attempted to retake the company when Heihachi entered the military industry (possibly sometime after the death of his daughter-in-law Kazumi Mishima during the same year), but failed and was imprisoned underneath a Mishima compound, Hon-Maru. He died due to starvation after some years. Before his debut, Jinpachi never makes an appearance, although his existence is hinted multiple times, as his friend, Wang's participation in the second tournament is motivated by Jinpachi's wish, and his gravestone is also shown in Wang's ending in Tekken 2.

In Tekken 5, having been resurrected and taken over by a demon as well as granted incredible supernatural powers, Jinpachi breaks out of Hon-Maru when the temple is destroyed during a battle between Heihachi, Kazuya and an army of Jack-4s sent to kill Heihachi in which the Jacks explode, pulverizing the Hon-Maru and freeing Jinpachi from his underground prison. With the news of Heihachi's apparent demise, Jinpachi takes over the company from behind the scenes and organizes the fifth King of Iron Fist Tournament under the orders of the demon, that told him to destroy the world and seek out the souls of the strong, even though he wanted to refuse this command, he obeyed due to lack of energy.

In the tournament finals, Jinpachi is confronted by his great-grandson, Jin who defeats him and puts him to rest at last. Though not playable, Jinpachi briefly appears in the Scenario Campaign prologue of Tekken 6, which retells the events from previous games in a comic book-style format, and he is also mentioned in the prologues and epilogues of several characters in recent mainline games, such as Jin and Wang.

He returns in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 as a playable character and as one of the Stage 7 sub-bosses, alongside Heihachi. He reprises his role as one of the unplayable Stage 7 sub-bosses in Tekken Revolution. In Street Fighter X Tekken, Dhalsim's Swap Costume is based on Jinpachi's appearance.

He enters the fifth tournament to seek out those responsible for the event, and witnesses an attack on Hon-Maru by G Corporation's Jack-4 foot soldiers while on a mission to look into the company and Mishima Zaibatsu, as the conglomerates are warring with each other. During the tournament, he crosses paths with Kazuya Mishima, who he recognizes after seeing him flying away from the Hon-Maru. He loses to Kazuya and is interrogated by him. Afterwards Kazuya discovers that he was betrayed by G Corporation, and that something was awakened from under Hon-Maru. Kazuya realizes what Heihachi has done, and speculates that, in fact, it is his grandfather Jinpachi Mishima, who is somehow controlling the Zaibatsu now. Sometime after the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, Raven encounters Heihachi Mishima, who was presumed to be dead, they began to fight.

Before a winner could be decided, Raven received orders to return to headquarters, and he had to withdraw from the battle.

After that encounter, Raven was then sent to investigate the Mishima Zaibatsu once again via the sixth tournament.

Alisa Bosconovich was created to protect Jin Kazama and serves him through her travels. Alisa is placed in a starring role in the console-only Scenario Campaign mode in Tekken 6. After being activated following a botched raid on a Mishima Zaibatsu lab, she joins Lars Alexandersson in his pursuit of his lost memories (which occur as a result of the events at the lab). She is controlled by the CPU in this mode (unless the player chooses to play as Alisa herself, at which point CPU control is given to Lars). Alisa helps Lars (or whoever the player has chosen to use in Scenario Campaign) battle the waves of enemies and has an AI system that grows as she participates in battle. She keeps a journal which she constantly updates with entries regarding the events of her journey with Lars, as well as her own personal opinion about them. It is later revealed that she is actually an android in the employ of Jin, to which she has been serving as a way for Jin to observe what has been happening in the world at large. She is commanded by Jin to disable safe mode (including her personality and behavior inhibition programming) and attack Lars. After a stalemate battle with Lars, she leaves for the desert to join Jin. When Lars arrives, she attacks him again where this time she is ultimately defeated and shuts down. Lars rescues her body and takes her to a robotics corporation (run by Lee Chaolan) where she can be revived. Although the scenario campaign was removed from PlayStation Portable's port, the developers added background information for the character.

In Tekken 7, Alisa has been revived and has the inhibitor program removed, though suffers memory loss and attacks Lee in self defence upon rebooting. Upon losing, Alisa remembers who Lee is, though questions why she is at Violet systems. Lee then uses his machinery to restore Alisa's memory, which then gives her the desire to find Lars. Before Lee can take her to Lars though, Violet Systems is attacked by the Tekken Force. Lee and Alisa fight them off and flee to another of Lee's facilities, where Lars had been waiting. Alisa happily jumps on Lars in excitement, though the Tekken Force attack again, searching for Jin's body. Alisa assists Lars and Lee in fighting off the Tekken force but Alisa is stopped by Nina Williams who stalls Alisa long enough for a Tekken Force helicopter to capture Jin.

Other than the main games of the series, Alisa also appears in the portable game Tekken 3D: Prime Edition as well as the non-canon Tekken Tag Tournament 2, in which her ending (as well as other character's) reinforces her friendship with Ling Xiaoyu first shown in the animated CGI film Tekken: Blood Vengeance. Outside of the Tekken series, she is a playable character in Street Fighter X Tekken as downloadable content, alongside her official tag partner, Lars. She appears as an assist unit in Project X Zone, alongside fellow Tekken characters Jin, Xiaoyu, and a younger Heihachi Mishima. She appears as an unlockable character in the free-to-play game, Tekken Revolution.

Alisa appears as one of the main characters in the 2011 CGI film Tekken: Blood Vengeance. She is a student in the Kyoto International School and befriends Ling Xiaoyu but hides the fact that she is a robot. She acts upon the orders of Jin to find Shin Kamiya along with Xiaoyu under the forced orders of Anna Williams. After Xiaoyu saves her from an ambush attack from Anna, she joins Xiaoyu in finding the truth about the M-cell experiments done on Shin. Throughout the film, she starts to develop a sense of humanity in which she would often hesitate even under her normal protocol commands and her fondness with her friendship with Xiaoyu. During the final battle between Heihachi Mishima and Devil Jin, a severely damaged Alisa sacrifices herself by distracting Heihachi with a blast allowing Jin to defeat him. In the end Jin reverses her standby mode and end credits show her fully restored and discussing how she and Xiaoyu should enter the Tekken tournament. Alisa appears in the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 live-action short film portrayed by Amandine Desprez.

Alisa appears in Tekken Comic, a manga based on Tekken 6. A live-action Alisa, portrayed by Michelle Ballee, also appears in the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Girl Power Trailer, shown at Comic-Con in 2012. In 2012, Kotobukiya released an Alisa Bosconovitch action figure as part of their Tekken Tag Tournament 2 toyline. commented that Alisa is sexy, cute and has a bubbly personality and stated that she's "the coolest new Tekken character to emerge in years," praising her chainsaws and head bomb. In 2012, she was listed as one of the most "ridiculous" Tekken characters by Game Informer, who said "Why is a stupid robot fairy in a fighting game? I don't think even Namco Bandai knows the answer to that".

Azazel (Japanese: アザゼル, Hepburn: Azazeru) is the main antagonist of Tekken 6, and the source that created the devil gene, set to be released from his tomb after the clash of "two evil stars" (Jin and his father Kazuya). He is the physical embodiment of the spirit resonating within Jin's psyche that is affected by his struggles with his father Kazuya (the "two evil stars"). Azazel has blue-gray skin, a large spiked tail and huge crystalline spikes protruding from his forearms, and wears a ceremonial headdress and loincloth. His offensive attacks range from summoning giant crystal stalagmites from the ground to unleashing scarab beetles onto his opponents. Azazel appears in the final stage of Tekken 6's story mode, brought forth by Jin so he can defeat him and end his own life in the process. Azazel is defeated not by Jin but by Lars Alexandersson and Raven, but Jin reveals that Azazel can only be permanently vanquished by someone carrying the Devil Gene. Jin powers up with his Devil form, making him immune to Azazel's attacks. Jin kills Azazel by punching his fist straight through his chest but both fall and disappear into the temple ruins.

Despite losing its physical form, the weakened essence of Azazel's soul is still alive and immediately being sealed by Zafina into her orb, at cost of having her left arm cursed with its power. The more it suppressed too long, the more Azazel's soul recovering and stronger, possibly reviving him, unless a Kazuya's next last battle against Jin after murdering Heihachi had to be stopped. When Tekken 7 occur, Zafina sought Claudio to prevent the possible return of Azazel.

Azazel has received critical reception for his difficulty as a final boss. Lucas Sullivan of GamesRadar included him in his 2014 selection of twelve "unfair" fighting-game bosses. "Hated that mutated old guy [Tekken 5 boss Jinpachi], huh? Here, have a fire-breathing crystal dragon that's as tall as the screen." Rick Marshall of MTV said in 2009, "As far as boss battles go, Azazel is the most difficult the franchise has ever offered—even on 'Easy' mode." Stephen Nadee of WhatCulture named Azazel the number-one "worst" fighting game boss in 2013: "Understanding the game mechanics mean almost nothing when it comes to fighting Azazel particularly when he has his advantage in defense, his moves are fairly difficult to sidestep, and can counter-attack through his own blocking." Eric Neigher of GameSpy wrote in his 2009 review of the game's PlayStation Portable release: "Azazel, Tekken 6's official nemesis, is perhaps the most badly designed, frustrating to play against, and overall worst boss ever."

Leo Kliesen (Japanese: レオ・クリーゼン, Hepburn: Reo Kurīzen) is a Bajiquan practitioner from Germany whose father was a world-famous spelunker and whose mother Emma a G Corporation executive. Though her father disappeared during an expedition, Leo still wanted to follow his career path, until his mother was murdered by an unknown assailant. When the police abruptly call off the investigation, Leo opt to seek the truth alone, during which the G Corporation's Kazuya Mishima materializes as a person of interest. It was at this time that Leo learned of the Mishima Zaibatsu sponsoring The King of Iron Fist Tournament, at which Mishima planned to appear, and he decides to enter the competition in hopes of gaining access to him. In the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 ending, Leo infiltrates a train owned by G Corporation and learns that her mother was involved with Mishima Zaibatsu twenty years before, heading a project called "Hybrid Gene". The Tekken Tag 2 ending story in regarding of her mother's former job as a researcher in Zaibatsu is continued in Tekken 7. In Tekken Comic, Leo is male and Lili Rochefort's bodyguard, accompanying her to Osaka to shoot a martial arts film.

Namco attempted to cater to both male and female players with the character's shortened name and ambiguous design of short blonde hair and non-revealing clothing. Series producer Katsuhiro Harada revealed Leo's full name (Eleonore) at the 2011 Tekken: Blood Vengeance premiere in Cologne, Germany. He, however, did a comment on the character saying that "Leo was female during developing". This however cause fans quite debate concerning Leo's gender, as they have been misunderstood to think that Leo was officially confirmed as a female since that TTT2 provided Leo with a bikini and a male surfer suit. In most sources, Katsuhiro Harada redacted his statement, saying that Leo was conceived as a female character with the name of Eleonore Kliesen (Japanese: エレオノーラ・クリーゼン, Hepburn: Ereonōra Kurīzen), but since that Leo looked like a male in the initial concept arts he decided to change the concept before the release of arcade version of Tekken 6. He stated that the video about Leo's gender revealing in Germany has been modified by being cut back and forth. He confirmed that Leo's sex and gender always have been unknown and that the truth was still in the darkness. He explained also the TTT2 swimsuits situation saying that "They are for those who see Leo as female and for those who see Leo as male". He then affirmed that he's frustrated because Leo is always translated and referred with 'she'. Making Tom Goulter of GamesRadar said in a 2012 feature on the Tekken characters, "Choose this character if anyone tries to tell you that video games are all about enforcing restrictive gender binaries."

Miguel Caballero Rojo

  • Nationality : Spaniard
  • Fighting style : None (Untrained Brawling)
  • Voiced by : Liam O'Brien (TK6 (dialogues) -present (grunts)) Daichi Endō (2009 live-action film), Héctor Garay (TTT2–present (Spanish, dialogues))

At the age of fifteen, Spanish brawler Miguel Caballero Rojo (Japanese: ミゲル・カバジェロ・ロホ, Hepburn: Migeru Kabajero Roho) was kicked out of the house by his parents for constantly fighting. He ran away and sought sanctuary inside a bar, where his sister, with whom he was extremely close, would visit him in secret. However, she is later killed on her wedding day after a group of Mishima Zaibatsu fighter jets launch an airstrike on the church where the ceremony was being held. Miguel's investigation leads to the sixth tournament in order to seek answers from the corporation's CEO, Jin Kazama. Unfortunately, Jin suddenly disappeared, Miguel's life purpose to kill him also disappears. From that point forward, Miguel began to wander like a living specter from battle-torn town to another. Until one day, he is confronted by now ex-Zaibatsu leader Jin, with Miguel's purpose to kill him rise again. However, Jin held back and let Miguel finish, but Miguel refuse and spared, telling Jin that he will kill him once Jin has found hope without dying earlier yet. His early appearances resemble that of a bullfighter, but his design was simplified in Tekken 7 to an open red shirt and green combat trousers. He has no formal training in the martial arts. In Tekken 7, Miguel's 'Rage art' is somewhat unique in that the camera switches to a first person perspective from the opponents point of view, giving Miguel's violent beat down a particularly brutal feel.

Miguel has a minor role in the 2009 Tekken live-action film, and was played by Roger Huerta. He is defeated in the tournament by Jin.


NANCY-MI847J is a massive robotic security unit under the command of Jin Kazama. It is very difficult to destroy and possesses an arsenal of missiles and lasers. NANCY only appears in Tekken 6's arcade mode and "Time Attack" Mode as a bonus round battle before the player fights Jin. In the story mode, the robot is controllable in one level of the story mode when the player attempts infiltration of G Corporation's headquarters. NANCY is revealed to be the very first character that utilizes Wall Bound, which soon applied in Tekken 7, starting from guest character Geese Howard in Season 1, then all characters as of Season 2.

Steve West of Cinema Blend said about the character's fighting style: "NANCY doesn't react like a typical Tekken opponent. Rather than block your puny attempts to damage it, the robot will simply attack you whenever it feels like it." Dale North of Destructoid commented in 2008: "Where do [Namco] get these [character] names? Bob and Nancy? That sounds like a Middle-American suburban couple."

Robert Richards/Slim Bob/Summer Bob

  • Nationality : American
  • Fighting style : Freestyle Karate
  • Voiced by : Patrick Seitz (TK6–present); Tsutomu Isobe (Street Fighter X Tekken, Japanese)

Making his debut in Tekken 6, Robert Richards (Japanese: ロバート・リチャーズ, Hepburn: Robāto Richāzu), simply known as Bob, is an American martial artist who participated in numerous fighting competitions but lacked power against larger opponents. He therefore fattened himself up to the point of morbid obesity while maintaining his previous speed, then entered the sixth tournament to silence his doubters. A thin version of the character, called "Slim Bob", is included in Tekken Tag Team Tournament 2 as a download, while the original Bob was added to the roster of the 2016 Tekken 7 update. Bob has a summer version names Summer Bob who's introduced in Tekken Mobile. Summer Bob has the same fighting style and the same Rage Art like Bob.

Reception to the character has been mixed, mainly due to his design. Robert Workman of GameDaily ranked Bob the tenth "ugliest game character" in 2008: "If the bright red shirt covering the gigantic frame isn't insulting enough, he also has a bleach blonde mop on his head." In 2010, GamesRadar proposed a fantasy fight between Bob and Street Fighter's Rufus for Street Fighter X Tekken: "How two totally different companies [Namco and Capcom] decided they both needed speedy fat asses in their games at exactly the same time is something of a mystery, though ... we feel there's room for both of them." Complex ranked Bob among the "25 Most Badass Fat Guys in Games" in 2011. In 2012, Jeff Marchiafava of Game Informer deemed Bob one of the most "ridiculous" Tekken characters: "Bob is from America. Bob is also morbidly obese. That's pretty much all the thought Namco put into Bob."

  • Voiced by : Cindy Robinson

Zafina (Japanese: ザフィーナ, Hepburn: Zafīna) (زافينا) is a Middle Eastern woman, probably of Egyptian descent. She was born into an ancient bloodline of dispellers of evil and possesses spiritual powers. Raised as a warrior and serving as her clan's assassin, she uses her spiritual gifts on the side working as an astrologist. Zafina is tasked with guarding a sealed royal tomb that believed to maintain the clan's well-being, and she has defeated all who have tried to infiltrate it. She prophesies the clash of two "evil stars" (Jin Kazama and Kazuya Mishima) who will bring about the world's end. Zafina, therefore, travels to the Far East, where Jin and Kazuya are predicted to meet. In Tekken 6's "Scenario Campaign" story mode, Zafina allies herself with Lars Alexandersson and Raven against the Tekken Force, and gives them the location of Azazel's Temple.

In Tekken 7, she has a new design and has gained possession of Azazel's Orb (as seen on Devil Jin's Tekken 6 ending), giving her Azazel-like powers to the hand she's holding as the orb seems to be still holding the demon's essence. She sought Claudio for an assistant to suppress the seal of Azazel's essence from his possible return.

  • Nationality : Unknown
  • Fighting style : Unknown

Eliza (エリザ, Eriza) is a vampire who made her debut in the free-to-play spin-off Tekken Revolution. She was one of the ten character choices in a poll to determine the new character addition for the game; she was eventually voted number one most wanted character, ahead of Sexy Tekken Force Member and Shin Kamiya at San Diego Comic Con 2013, ensuring her inclusion to the game. According to her backstory, Eliza is a powerful and immortal vampire who had existed since more than 1000 years ago. One day after escaping from one of the members of ancient time's Sirius organization, whom Claudio Serafino descendant to, with the intention of taking a nap inside her coffin, she accidentally fell into a deep sleep for hundreds of years. In present-day Monaco, the Rochefort family built a mansion above her coffin, thus imprisoning her, which was also meant for her shelter from being chased by each descendant of the ancient time's Sirius members. She eventually woke up and managed to escape recently and plan an exact revenge on the present day Sirius organization. Eliza still has difficulty in controlling her sleep and will fall asleep even in the middle of fights; however, she can potentially recover her health while doing so.

Tekken 7 is her main series playable debut, where she utilizes a similar playstyle to Akuma from Street Fighter, such as having 2D-area fighting game mechanics like jumping attacks and special cancels, and Street Fighter-styled Super meter, referred to as a "Blood" gauge. Her sleeping mechanic has also been reworked, allowing her to build her "Blood" gauge rather than recovering health.

Eliza's fighting style incorporates several supernatural moves (such as teleportation). She can also shoot a grounded energy wave that goes straight, although unlike Jinpachi's fireball, it is blockable.

  • Voiced by : Diego Baldoin (T7), Kohsuke Toriumi (Pachi-Slot T4)

Claudio Serafino (クラウディオ・セラフィーノ, Kuraudio Serafīno) is a white-clad man hailing from Italy. He is a leader of a secret Anti-Devil organization in combating the Devil Gene's threat, known as Archers of Sirius. Empowered with a Sirius magic, he has tattoos around his left eye and black tapes covering his right arm, which can project and shoot blue lights/boost during battles. He is one of the playable characters in the first location tests of Tekken 7. During an interview with Harada, it was said that Claudio was created to counter the Devil Gene's reign, thus would play an important role in the game.

The reason behind his organization's secret from the public and a sudden disclosure is not yet known at this point. Some time later, Claudio's organization was approached by the Mishima Zaibatsu, led by Heihachi Mishima, to join their conglomerate. However, the archers refused and the Mishima Zaibatsu continues to attempt to persuade them. Having noticed some suspicious acts by Heihachi and his Zaibatsu, Claudio was prompted to investigate the reasons behind the Mishima Zaibatsu's persuasion, even though his uneasy service with Heihachi is temporary. During his alliance with the Mishima Zaibatsu, he met Ling Xiaoyu. After learning about her connection to Jin Kazama, Claudio decides to use her as bait to capture Jin. He later gains assistance from a fortune teller, Zafina, who is currently cursed by an orb of a fully weakened Azazel, in order to prevent the monster's full return through stopping a continued war between Jin and Kazuya after the latter Kazuya killed Heihachi in their last fight.

Claudio will return as a playable character in Tekken 8.

Fahkumram (Thai: ฟ้าคำราม) is a very tall, tattooed, strong and muscular man from Thailand. He is a legendary Muay Thai champion and the national hero of Thailand. The scars he received were a result from being stricken by lightning at age 12, with Fahkumram somehow surviving and obtaining superhuman abilities, as well as growing over two meters tall. He eventually becomes a champion at the age of 18 and grows into an honorable family man who cares for his family, including his daughter who looks up to him. Unfortunately, at the age of 24, his life was to take a dramatic turn for the worse. Corrupt officials attempt to lure and use Fahkumram as a slave for their illegal activities, even taking his family hostage after Fahkumram is falsely arrested for defending himself against and killing his would-be assassins (who also rigged his last official match). These events cause him to become more cynical and deluded by his country's corruptions. When the war between the Mishima Zaibatsu and G Corporation occurs four years later, the corrupt government dispatches Fahkumram primarily to eliminate the Zaibatsu by enlisting him for the seventh King of Iron Fist Tournament; Fahkumram hopes to use this as an opportunity to save his family, he should win liberty once and for all.

  • Fighting style : Savate
  • Voiced by : Thaís Durães

Katarina Alves (カタリーナ・アウヴェス, Katarīna Auvesu) is a Brazilian woman who practices the art of savate. She is described as a "sassy, mouthed talker", as well as a beginner-friendly character, with simple strings to execute combos. Along with Claudio, she is one of the characters available in the first location tests of Tekken 7.

She is currently searching for her missing adoptive father, who happens to be G Corporation's brainwashed monster known as Gigas, as seen on her and Gigas' ending.

Katarina seems to be very confident in her abilities as a fighter; alongside her cocky attitude, her fighting pose has her guard totally lowered (contrary to a traditional savate stance), and her posture is completely relaxed.

Kazumi Mishima/Devil Kazumi

  • Nationality : Japanese
  • Fighting style : Hachijo Style Karate mixed with Mishima Style Karate
  • Voiced by : Yumi Hara

Kazumi Mishima (三島 一美, Mishima Kazumi), née Hachijo (八条), is married to Heihachi and the mother of Kazuya, the adoptive mother of Lee Chaolan, the daughter-in-law of Jinpachi Mishima, and also the paternal grandmother of Jin Kazama. She serves as the final boss in the arcade mode of Tekken 7, but was eventually replaced with Akuma when certain conditions have been met. Before Tekken 7, she was only alluded to twice: once in Heihachi's stage in Tekken 2, in which her and Heihachi's names are written on the floorboard of the temple in the style of Aiaigasa (a romantic expression to show love between couples), as well as in the non-canon OVA Tekken: The Motion Picture, in which she is mentioned to have died shortly after giving birth to Kazuya. She is seen in a photo inside a locket, cradling baby Kazuya. The debut trailer of Tekken 7 features Kazumi appearing in person for the first time, with her and Heihachi's Aiaigasa-stylized name also shown. Prior to becoming the seventh time release character added to Tekken 7, her human form was playable, yet her devil form remains unplayable. You can also play her devil form as a cheat; the opponent Kazumi will be in her human form, even if you beat her once. Because of this, even when players set the round number from the game options, the 5th stage will be 2 instead of 1.

Kazumi's fighting style is Hachijo Style Karate, which is very similar to the Mishima Style Karate as practiced by the rest of her family, with additional tiger-summoning and levitating ability akin to Jinpachi Mishima. As a final boss, Kazumi is fought in two phases; upon beating her once, she transforms into a stronger phoenix-like white Devil form and remains that way for the duration of the stage. In her devil form, besides having the original devil's powers of third eyed Devil Blaster and wings, her tiger-summoning ability is enhanced, and the tiger's color itself changes to white. Upon beating her once as Devil Kazumi, rather than transforming into a stronger white Devil form, she fights back randomly.

In the story, Kazumi first meets Heihachi when she visits Jinpachi's dojo to train with him. Both Heihachi and Kazumi come closer and eventually marry, with Kazumi giving birth to Kazuya. Five years later, Kazumi suddenly gets sick; her illness passes quickly, but Kazumi begins behaving differently, exhibiting signs of a split personality, likely due to the awakening of her Devil Gene. During this time, Kazumi saves Akuma's life. After he recovers, Kazumi asks Akuma to find and kill Heihachi and Kazuya. Akuma agrees, claiming that this will settle the debt that he owes Kazumi. Many days later, Kazumi suddenly attempts to kill Heihachi, revealing that the reason she married him is because her clan foresaw his attempted world domination in the future and sent her to kill him. However, Heihachi proves stronger and, realizing the woman he loved is gone, regretfully kills her in the act of self-defense.

Leroy Smith (リロイ・スミス, Riroi Sumisu) is an African-American martial artist from New York City. During his childhood, escalating gang violence leads to the Big Apple War, a massive battle between rival gangs that results in many civilian casualties, including Leroy's family. Leroy is also injured in the conflict, falling into a river and being washed out to sea before being found by a merchant ship. With nowhere to return to, Leroy travels the world as a trader before settling in Hong Kong to learn the Wing Chun martial art. Nearly a half-century later, Leroy returns to New York to take revenge on the gangsters and the Mishima Zaibatsu, whom he learns were responsible for the events leading to the Big Apple War. He also has a pet pit-bull dog named "Sugar", that can assist Leroy in his battles.

The Game Award 2022 trailer of Tekken 8 reveals that Leroy opens a coffee shop and becoming Manhattan's historical figure at some point, with his statue is seen in the game's Midtown's Time Square stage. Leroy himself eventually revealed in EVO Japan 2023 to have return playable in this game. Although Heihachi suddenly disappeared, but unbeknownst that his enemy's son, Kazuya permanently killed him, Leroy's peaceful day is far from over, when Kazuya publicly reveals himself as a devil to the world.

Although Leroy did not appear in Tekken 3, he appears in Season 1 of retold animated series Tekken: Bloodline, where Jin unintentionally injured his knee during their match, which also led him to gain a cane he used as a temporary weapon in the game's main story. Following the match, Leroy also warns Jin about Heihachi's true purpose like how it affects Kazuya, similar warning which Jin heard from a tournament veteran, Paul about who Kazuya was like.

Akuma, known in Japan as Gouki (豪鬼, Gōki), is a Japanese martial artist who has mastered the dark powers of the Satsui no Hado, seeking to increase his own strength and defeat the most powerful opponents in the world. Hailing from Capcom's Street Fighter series, Akuma makes a special guest appearance in Tekken 7: Fated Retribution. In the story, Kazumi saves his life when he suffers an unknown critical injury. Shortly thereafter, Kazumi asks him to find and kill Heihachi and Kazuya. Akuma agrees, claiming that this will settle the debt that he owes her. Akuma retains many of his abilities from the Street Fighter games, such as his Gohadoken, Shakunetsu Hadoken, Gou Shoryuken, Tatsumaki Zankukyaku, Zanku Hadoken, Hyakkishu, and Ashura Senku, along with Messatsu Gou Hadou as his Super Move and Shin Shun Goku Satsu as his Rage Art. Akuma is the first character to possess an exclusive game mechanic in the form of the EX/Super meter and Focus Attack from Street Fighter IV, which replaces his Rage Drive. This meter mechanic was also given to Eliza from Tekken Revolution following her introduction to the game. He is the only guest character in the story mode of Tekken 7.

Prior to Akuma's inclusion, Morrigan Aensland from Capcom's Darkstalkers series was also considered for Tekken 7, but was cut due to animation-related difficulties.

Geese Howard

  • Voiced by : Richard Epcar (dialogue), Kong Kuwata (special move dialogues)

Geese Howard (ギース・ハワード, Gīsu Hawādo) is an American martial artist who serves as the reigning crime boss of the city of South Town. Originating in SNK's fighting game series Fatal Fury, Art of Fighting and The King of Fighters, he appears as the second guest character to be included in Tekken 7 and the second downloadable fighter for the console and PC versions after Eliza. In the trailer for his addition to the cast, Geese's disembodied voice calls out to a meditating Heihachi Mishima, taunting him with the suggestion that he surrender his plan of worldwide conquest before Geese, due to the world being too big for the old Mishima to control and presumably predicting his death at the hands of his son and now G Corporation CEO, Kazuya.

In a similar vein to the fellow guest character Akuma, whose gameplay uniquely incorporates its own version of Street Fighter IV's Focus Attack and EX/Super meter mechanics, Geese's gameplay mechanics derive from his appearance in The King of Fighters XIV, utilizing his own unique MAX Mode to access specific EX moves and being able to cancel normal and command moves into this state. Like Akuma, Geese does not possess a Rage Drive, but similar to how the former can expend his Super meter to perform the Messatsu Gou Hadou, Geese has access to two Super Moves ("Climax Arts" in KoF XIV), which are Raging Storm and Raigou Reppuken. Geese is also the only character to have two Rage Arts, his first being Rashōmon, now initiated with a regular attack instead of a counter-throw, and the second his infamous 10-button combination input super, Deadly Rave. Prior to the Season 2 update, he was the only character to have a wall-bounce mechanic. His Rashomon attack from Tekken 7 is eventually being applied in The King of Fighters XV.

Between Tekken 2 and Tekken 3 Abel was also involved on experimenting children into child soldiers using Devil Gene research under Heihachi's orders, with a British boxer Steve Fox is one of the surviving children whose deaths had been faked and hiding from Heihachi's watch for years thanks to the former Zaibatsu researcher Emma Kliesen, Leo Kliesen's now late-mother. At the end of Tournament 4, Bryan found Abel and punched him across the room, killing him instantly, shortly before Yoshimitsu brought a dying Bryan to Doctor Bosconovitch. As Abel's death-ray is now belonged to Mishima Zaibatsu, during his time working with Heihachi, it is last used by Heihachi to record Kazuya's battle in his devil form against Akuma at G Corporation Tower worldwide, then use it to kill them. However, both Kazuya and Akuma survived the blast, whereas Kazuya uses his Devil Blaster to destroy Abel's satellite and makes the public to forget his demonic existence, until Heihachi have no choice to secretly entrust the truth to Lars and Lee through letting the journalist they hired interview with him about how Mishima feud first started.

Emma Kliesen

Emma Kliesen (エマ・クリーゼン, Ema Kurīzen) is the mother of Leo. She worked as an executive of G Corporation. Her husband disappeared when Leo was still a child. Some time before the events of Tekken 6, Emma was murdered by an unknown assailant who is suspected to be sent by her superior, Kazuya Mishima, thus sparking Leo's quest to take revenge against Kazuya. In both Leo and Steve Fox's endings in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, it is revealed that Emma once worked for Mishima Zaibatsu twenty years ago and that she was the supervisor of the "Hybrid Gene" program conducted by Heihachi Mishima, which consisted of injecting subjects who could withstand the fatal impact of the Devil Gene. One of the subjects, Steve, then known as NT01, was taken in by Emma, who reported his disappearance as death. After briefly taking care of him, Emma left Steve to be adopted in England.

Hawk, Falcon, and Owl

Hawk, Falcon and Owl are codenames assigned for the highest-ranking members of the Tekken Force. They appear as enemies in the Tekken Force mini-game in Tekken 3. In Tekken 3 you can play it with a cheat.


Jack-4 (introduced in Tekken 5) is an upgrade of Gun Jack, created by G Corporation and the only one in the Jack series that is non-playable. Like P. Jack, this model has a separate personality. Unlike other models in the Jack series, this one is mass-produced to serve as the foot soldiers of the G Corporation. While these never participate in any tournament, they are sent by G Corporation's Nebraska branch to kill Kazuya Mishima after they no longer need him, and the subsequent battle in Hon-Maru almost results in the death of Heihachi Mishima. However Heihachi survived and blasted far away from Hon-Maru, until he recovered from a comatose for days when the fifth tournament was announced. These specific models have a self-destruct device embedded in them, indicated when one of them peels away its face to reveal a countdown. They also appear as enemies in the Scenario Campaign mode in Tekken 6 and a Tekken 5 flashback chapter of Tekken 7.

Jane (ジェーン, Jēn) is a scientist working for G Corporation. As a child, she was orphaned in the war zone and was left in the care of Jack-2, who defied his orders to raise her. However, he was eventually destroyed by an explosion, and Jane, then a scientist, determined to rebuild her friend. Nineteen years later, she developed Gun Jack (also known as Jack-3) and sent him to the third tournament to retrieve Jack-2's memories. The two managed to break the Mishima Zaibatsu's labs, but were attacked by Dr. Abel, who destroyed Gun Jack when he attempted to protect Jane. Two years later, Jane helped the construction of hundreds of Jack-4 robots with the intention of assassinating Kazuya Mishima, which she did not involved and spared by Kazuya for his use. Subsequently, she developed an upgrade to Jack-4 called Jack-5, whom she sent to participate in the fifth tournament for testing. At the end of the tournament, Jane managed to retrieve the fight data to complete the model. However, when she heard that the Mishima Zaibatsu was building NANCY-MI847J, a complex robot designed for warfare, she built an upgraded Jack model, Jack-6, to counter the robot.

Jane later led a development team to create another upgraded model, Jack-7. Another research team within the company created a bio-enhanced super human, Gigas, whom some saw as more than capable of replacing the Jack series as G Corporation's premier weapon. Both teams decided to enter their weapons in the seventh tournament to determine which one is the best.

The Journalist

Voiced by: Josh Keller

The Journalist is the narrator of the Tekken 7 story mode. An unnamed journalist, who lost his family and home during the war between Mishima Zaibatsu and G Corporation researches the Mishima Clan during the events of King of Iron Fist Tournament 7. He is currently living in a small hotel afterwards, with some of his acquaintances manage to find the darker secrets within G Corp's schematics without being spotted by their watch. Seeking to know the answers behind this endless Mishima conflict war, the journalist went to the library to know more about, starting from Jinpachi Mishima's coup against his greedy son Heihachi Mishima, in the same year after Heihachi killed his wife Kazumi Mishima née Hachijo, then throws a young vengeful Kazuya Mishima off the cliff, which he managed to survive. He is later recruited by Lee Chaolan to join Lars Alexandersson' rebel squad, with the journalist's help, they will find out the answers behind this endless war.

He harbors hatred towards Jin Kazama, who had started the global war. The Journalist was even prepared to kill Jin, but agreed to let him live on the request of Lars, so he could stop the war for some good reason. On the next day, he, Lars, Lee and Alisa Bosconovitch are watching Kazuya's devil form being broadcast live while fighting Akuma at G Corporation's Rooftop by Heihachi, shortly before Heihachi recently activate Doctor Abel's death ray on the said building Kazuya and Akuma fought, presumably kills them, with the public began to turn down their trust towards G Corp, but unaware that Kazuya and Akuma survived the blast.

After Kazuya destroys Doctor Abel's death ray, with the public regain their trust towards G Corp and redeeming the Zaibatsu as the villain once again, he seeks to interview with Heihachi, and is scheduled to meet him at the secret location on the small hut, as Heihachi finally reveals to the journalist about the dark secrets of the Mishima Family and how he killed his wife, Kazumi, especially the origin of the Devil Gene, which Kazuya, and even Jin inherited from her. After the interview, he was taken away by two of his Tekken Force to get him out of the hut and being picked up by Lars soon after. He remains with Lars, Alisa and Lee at another branch of Violet Systems to watch the final battle between Heihachi and his son, Kazuya Mishima at the volcanic pit.

The journalist is last seen typing about the confrontation between both a father and a son before he turns off the lantern once he's done typing his report to end the Story Mode and the credits will roll.

He hopes that the information will be able to reveal the truth, though at a more peaceful time instead.

Legendary Capoeira Master

The Legendary Capoeira Master is the grandfather of Christie Monteiro and the mentor of Eddy Gordo. Before the events of Tekken 3, Eddy willingly imprisoned himself after he was framed by Kazuya for the murder of his parents, where he shared his cell with the Master. He taught Eddy the art of Capoeira during their incarceration. After Eddy was released, the Legendary Capoeira Master (who still had to serve two more years in prison) left a message for him to meet and teach his granddaughter, Christie, Capoeira. He was eventually released two years later, but had become a frail old man. When taken to medical exam, the doctor told Christie and Eddy that he was suffering from a normally incurable sickness that gave him only six months of life expectancy, but also told that a cure could be found with the technology of Mishima Zaibatsu. Thus, his cure became Christie and Eddy's primary reasons for entering the fifth tournament. At the end, neither Christie nor Eddy were able to win, and Eddy, in desperation, took his master to Japan while he joined the Mishima Zaibatsu's ranks with the promise from its leader, Jin Kazama, that he would help him curing his master. Although Jin really did keep Eddy's promise, it turns out not even Mishima Zaibatsu's technology can save the Legendary Capoeira Master, thus without any other option to let the old master dies at the end of the tournament for Eddy and Christie to move on their life, with Eddy angrily leaving his ranks after his many efforts ended all for nothing, now solely remain targeting Kazuya.

Mr. Kazama

The father of Asuka Kazama and a relative to Jun Kazama (a.k.a. Mr. Kazama) is a martial art master who practices Kazama Style Traditional Martial Arts which he teaches at his family's dojo located near Osaka. He also taught this martial art to his daughter, Asuka, who is an assistant teacher at his dojo. He is a relative of Jun Kazama, although to what extent their relationship goes is unknown. Before the events of Tekken 5, the arrogant God Fist Kung-Fu prodigy, Feng Wei, traveled through Japan to find the God Fist scroll, destroying many dojo along the way. The Kazama's dojo was one of his targets, as Feng easily defeated Asuka's father and his students, before destroying their dojo, causing him to be incapitated. This incident caused Asuka to participate in the fifth tournament to take revenge on Feng. While he is unseen in the main video game series, he does make an appearance in the non-canonical Tekken Comic, set during the events of Tekken 6.

Richard Williams

Richard Williams (リチャード・ウィリアムズ, Richādo Wiriamuzu) is a former assassin, the father of Nina and Anna Williams and the maternal grandfather of Steve Fox. He taught his children various assassination martial arts. Richard died sometime after the events of the first Tekken, which further strengthened the rivalry between his children, even after he left his final wish that the two would reconcile. His cause of death is unknown, although in the non-canon OVA Tekken: The Motion Picture, Nina accused Anna of being responsible for his death. In the spin-off Death by Degrees (also non-canon), Richard had died when the sisters were still young and that he was killed when he was trying to protect his children.

Shin Kamiya

Voiced by: Mamoru Miyano (Japanese), David Vincent (English)

Shin Kamiya (神谷 真, Kamiya Shin) is a character specifically created for the CGI film Tekken: Blood Vengeance, which is an alternate retelling of the events between Tekken 5 and Tekken 6. He was a student of the Mishima Polytechnic High School, where he was a friend of Jin Kazama. During the start of the film, he has moved out to the Kyoto International High School and is apparently very sought after by both Jin and Kazuya Mishima. Ling Xiaoyu, who is sent by Anna Williams to temporarily attend that school to find Shin, first meets him just as he is about to commit suicide by jumping from the roof, which is ultimately a futile attempt. As Xiaoyu and Alisa Bosconovitch (sent by Nina Williams) delve further, it is revealed that Shin, along with his entire class had been experimented by Heihachi Mishima (thought to be dead at that time) with the Devil Gene to test immortality. Shin is the only survivor and he has since been given immortality, which he despises, thus explaining his temptation to take his own life. Shin is eventually kidnapped, which causes Xiaoyu and Alisa to work together to find him, only to find out that he had purposefully lured Heihachi to himself, wanting to take revenge against him for having ruined his life. Shin attempts to punch Heihachi, but he easily braces against it as he breaks Shin's spine, killing him.

Shin was one of the proposed character concepts as a playable character in Tekken Revolution. The developer found it difficult to make him as a playable character due to his lack of knowledge in martial arts and the fact that he died in the film he appeared in, although there was an idea to make him an immortal character. In the character poll, Shin ranked third, above the Zombie Bride and below Eliza and Sexy Tekken Force Member.

Tougou (東郷, Tōgō) is Lars Alexandersson's friend and fellow member of the Tekken Force of Mishima Zaibatsu. When Lars rebels against the force, Tougou follows suit, and he becomes Lars and Alisa Bosconovitch's source of information during their travel throughout the world in attempt to avoid the Mishima Zaibatsu's manhunt. However, during their raid of G Corporation headquarters (in which Tougou also participates), he is killed by the company's forces, causing Lars to swear to take revenge against the enemies for his death.

While he is not a playable character in any of the games, his cybernetic sword is available as an item move for Lars in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Tougou was one of the character concepts considered in a poll for a new character to be added in Tekken Revolution. He would have used a style similar to Lars, but with the added abilities to use his sword and to call for air strikes via radio.

Unused characters

Unused characters refer to characters who were once planned to appear in the series as playable fighters, but never made it past the conceptual stages.

Average "Run-of-the-mill" Old Man

An average old man who was not a martial artist, and mentioned as weak. The concept surfaced early within the series, and he may have been reworked into Wang Jinrei.

Female Paul

A female version of Paul Phoenix, who was described as a "very cute girl". The concept was thrown out due to it not making any logical sense.


Ganmi-chan (Japanese: 巌美ちゃん) was to be a teenage female Sumo wrestler who idolized Ganryu. She was proposed for Tekken Tag Tournament 2, but was discarded in fears that she would overshadow the somewhat-unpopular Ganryu. A character sketch was completed several years ago, and the result was of a "cute anime girl", like those found in The Idolmaster. The sketch was later revealed by series producer Katsuhiro Harada on his Twitter account, in which he stated that if the tweet is retweeted 1000 times, he would convince the staff to attempt her design as a real character.

Giant Praying Mantis

During development of Tekken 3, a game bug caused the joints of a character to move backwards, making the character model deformed and appear like a mutated praying mantis. It inspired the team to make a giant praying mantis creature as a fighter, but by then it was too late to start work on him. Unused data within the Tekken 3 arcade machine shows evidence of him being planned for the game.

Sexy Tekken Force Member

A female Tekken Force member described as "gorgeous" and "sexy". The original concept was proposed for Tekken 5, but her costume was too revealing (the armor being very bikini-like) and the concept was scrapped for fears the rating would increase. The concept resurfaced for Tekken 6, but again went unused. Many different martial arts for her were proposed, including Silat, Krav Maga, Savate, Taekkyon, Systema, and Escrima. In the results of the character poll to determine the new character for Tekken Revolution, she ranked in second place, just below Eliza (who was then known as "Female Vampire").


A salmon out of water. Originally planned for Tekken 3, punch buttons would cause the Salmon to flop around, and the kick buttons would make it release eggs. However, given that the original arcade game charged 100 yen (US$1) to play, playing as a joke character that would inevitably lose would've caused some backlash. Like the praying mantis, leftover data can be found within the Tekken 3 game files. Hacking the game also allows you to play as "Syake", but it is simply Yoshimitsu with Jin Kazama's moves.

Taekwondo Girl

Taekwondo Girl was a female Taekwondo fighter, and was scheduled to appear in Tekken Mobile in a new update. However, due to the game being cancelled, she remains an unused character.

Wild Card

Wild Card is an irregular character appearing only in the arcade version of Tekken. It is essentially the game's "random select" (that picks out different fighters by random to display for the game's demo attraction), but hacking the game reveals it is a standalone character. Playing as Wild Card simply chooses Kazuya Mishima and gives him Yoshimitsu's moves.

Zombie Bride

A zombie bride in a wedding dress. The idea first came up around Tekken 3 as the first zombie in a fighting game. The idea resurfaced again for Tekken 6, as the sister of Miguel, who was killed in an air strike and came back to life. Since the fighting style for a zombie was considered too difficult to create, the idea was scrapped. Zombie Bride ranked fourth in the character poll to determine the new character for Tekken Revolution, just below Shin Kamiya.
