* ActionGirl: Christie, Nina and Anna though only Christie really gets to show it off. In addition to winning her tournament fight she takes out a whole load of Kazuya's mooks.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Heihachi is a lot less of a villain in this than he is in the games [[spoiler:Ultimately subverted in the after-credits scene, which implies the whole movie was [[TheChessmaster Heihachi playing everything to his favor]]]]

* {{Badass}}: Jin, Yushimitsu, Bryan Furry, Heihachi, Raven.

to:

** Miguel Rojo is changed from a honorable character with a legitimate desire of revenge to a generic AxCrazy.
** Marshall Law is a ArrogantKungFuGuy instead of a humorous, good-natured guy.
* AgeLift: In this film, Steve Fox is well into his fourties, apparently around the same age as Jun, while he is a young man in the games.
* ArtisticLicenseMartialArts:
** Christie's fighting style is nominally changed from capoeira to mixed martial arts, though she stills strikes out a lot of kicks, some cartwheels and a ''meia lua de compasso'' in blink-or-miss moments. However, it is clearly not considered capoeira on-screen, as she receives no relation to this version of Eddy Gordo, and a possible similarity among the two's styles is never commented.
** Miguel Rojo's style is changed from street fighting to zipota, a supposedly Spanish martial art (it counts as a double artistic license, as in real life zipota's authenticity is heavily discussed, and it is actually believed in Spain to be a foreign fabrication).
* {{Badass}}: Jin, Yushimitsu, Bryan Furry, Heihachi, Raven.



* TheCasanova: Prior to his mother's death, Jin is shown to have a girlfriend, Kara... Who he promptly forgets about once gets into Iron Fist & meets Christie, who throws herself at him within days. Especially glaring, since the film keeps cutting back to Kara during Jin's fights in the tournament.

** Kazuya was never thrown off a cliff by his father when he was a child, and looks ''nothing'' like the character in the games - It's so bad, that if you watched the trailer without knowledge that ''this'' was Kazuya, you'd be questioning who the hell Ian Anthony Dale was meant to be.
** Steve Fox, instead of being a similar age to Jin, is old enough to have fought in Iron Fist at the same time as Jun, has a shaven head & serves as Jin's mentor figure.
** Christie Monteiro is no longer a Brazillian Caporeia fighter, having undergone a RaceLift & now fighting as a MMA fighter instead - [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] slightly, due to Eddy Gordo also being in the film & faithful to the the character in the games, although the film has removed Eddy & Christie's relationship from the games.

** Miguel Rojo is stated to fall under SmallNameBigEgo, and like Marshall Law, looks & fights nothing like the character from the games. Possibly [[JustifiedTrope justified]] by the character being introduced in ''Tekken 6'', which wasn't released on consoles until after the film was shot.

** Yoshimitsu, the cyborg samurai who steals from the rich to give to the poor... Is just [[LargeHam a guy in an elaborate suit of armor]].
** For starters, [[spoiler:he seemed eager to kill Jin during their fight, and before he did so while Jin's on the ground, Kazuya looked at him after he overthrew Heihachi, and Yoshimitsu nodded, [[AdaptationalVillainy implying that Kazuya bribed him to kill Jin, like he attempted to do so with Bryan]]]].

* MistakenForPervert: In Christie's first scene, Jin is staring at her...because he's admiring the positioning of her feet. Later subverted when Jin actually ''does'' enjoy the view while standing behind her.

* RaceLift: Christie. Fans were never going to be happy no matter what race the actress was considering there are debates about Christie being black, Hispanic, Italian and even Asian. Anna is also played by a Spanish actress though she only has one line and she probably could pass for a white girl with a tan.

* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Eddy Gordo gets knocked out of the tournament first round. [[spoiler:Of course, this means he's no longer in the tournament when Kazuya changes the rules so the fights are to the death, at which Dragunov is the first to die in the tournament]].

Added DiffLines:

* ButNotTooForeign: Anna and Nina speak with American accents, despite apparently being Irish (though their nationality is not said in the movie). Admittedly this is the case in the games too.


Added DiffLines:

* MagicalSecurityCam: During Jin's fight with Marshall Law, the TV shows shots from inside the cage - when there's no camera or camera man inside it.

--> '''Christie:''' Looking at my ass is a good way to get yours kicked.


Added DiffLines:

* PlotHole: The tournament has ten participants, which would not work. After the first round there would be five left, making semi-finals quite tricky. Additionally Anna Williams is listed as a participant and yet never fights a match, and Yoshimitsu advances to the semi-finals automatically. It is possible that the Williams sisters only count as one participant (i.e. if Nina fights then Anna doesn't) since they're introduced together by Kazuya when he's running through them. It's likely possible that Bryan Fury, as the champion, automatically is in the final match. But it's not elaborated, making the tournament seem a bit all over the place.


Added DiffLines:

* SmallNameBigEgo: Miguel Rojo, whose noted as being incredibly arrogant. It counts on a meta example, as he had not yet been introduced in the games.

** Nina and Anna's grudge, which their entire backstory revolves around, is gone, to the point where they have no problem having an incestuous three-way with Kazuya.
