* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Jin has the same [[Creator/IsshinChiba Japanese voice actor]] as [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Dio Brando]], [[VideoGame/RivalSchools Kyosuke Kagami]] and [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Jedah Dohma]]. "WRRRYYYYYY!!!!!"
** Raven has the same [[Creator/DCDouglas voice actor]] as [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil5 Albert]] [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 Wesker]]. Or, alternatively, [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 Leg]][[VideoGame/MassEffect3 ion.]]
** [[Creator/VeronicaTaylor Ash]] [[{{Anime/Pokemon}} Ketchum]] joined the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6?[[labelnote:role]]Taylor provided the voice of Eleonora "Leo" Kliesen for ''6'', but was replaced by a German-speaking voice actor for Leo's new lines ''Tekken Tag Tournament 2'' (the battle grunts are still Taylor's).[[/labelnote]]
** [[Creator/MaryElizabethMcGlynn Nina Williams]] is about to [[Franchise/GhostInTheShell hack your cyberbrain]].
*** In ''Tekken 4'', Nina shared the same voice actress as [[VideoGame/VirtuaFighter another blonde-haired martial artist from another 3D fighting game series]], who went on to voice Christie and Zafina.
** [[Creator/DaisukeGori Heihachi]] [[Manga/DragonBall Mishima]] is [[HilariousInHindsight Earth's greatest champion.]]
*** In later games, he becomes the [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Demon of the mist]], and [[Manga/OnePiece a Marine Admiral with the power of light]]. He's still Earth's greatest champion though.
** [[Creator/LiamOBrien Dr.]] [[{{Anime/Monster}} Tenma]] joined the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6?[[labelnote:role]]O'Brien provides the voice of Miguel. Like Veronica Taylor above, he was replaced with a Spanish-speaking voice actor for ''Tekken Tag 2'' for Miguel's new lines, but the battle grunts are still O'Brien.[[/labelnote]]
** [[Creator/JunichiSuwabe Lars]] defines [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight GAR]] while being known as [[VideoGame/BlazBlue the Mad Puppeteer]]. [[Manga/WanganMidnight He was used to be a Ferrari driver, too.]]
*** This counts as a PlayingAgainstType for Suwabe. Most of his usual roles are villains or someone who's rather fucked up in the head or prone to angst, at least an AntiHero. Lars is a straightforward heroic good guy.
** Paul shares a voice actor with [[VideoGame/BatenKaitos Kalas]] in latter games.
*** As of ''Tag 2'' he is also the [[LightNovel/FateZero King of Conquerors]], and also possesses a '''[[VideoGame/BlazBlue GIGANTIC TAGER]]!'''
** The ''Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion'' announcer - Creator/DanGreen.
** [[Creator/RyokoShiraishi Asuka]] also goes by the nickname [[Manga/SketDance Onihime]], and happens to be pretty damn handy with [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyType0 a set of twin daggers]] as well.
** From ''Tekken Tag 2'' onwards, [[Creator/MaayaSakamoto Xiaoyu]] possesses the [[LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai Mystic Eyes of Death Perception]] and has [[Manga/BlackButler one hell of a butler]].
** [[Creator/YumiHara Kazumi]] is [[VideoGame/TheIdolmaster an idol]] in spare time.
** [[Creator/HisakoKanemoto Lucky Chloe]] [[Manga/KotouraSan appears to possess telepathic powers]]-[[Manga/ShinryakuIkaMusume de geso]].

** Back in ''4'', Anna was voiced by Lenne Hardt, the woman responsible for Axl in ''VideoGame/MegaManX7''. Fortunately, she is decidedly ''sexy'' as Anna. She later got replaced in ''6'' by Creator/TaraPlatt, who voiced another Namco hottie, [[VideoGame/SoulSeries Setsuka]].

Added DiffLines:

** Julia Chang has gone through three changes in voice actresses: Cara Jones voiced her in her ''Tekken 3'' ending (it's unknown who did her battle cries), while Kimberly Forsythe did her voice in ''Tekken 4''. Annie Wood took over Julia's dialogue and voice cries in ''Tekken 5'', but since ''Tekken 6'', her dialogues [[spoiler: and by extension, Jaycee's]] have been provided by Creator/StephanieSheh.
** Creator/HiroyaIshimaru provided Lei's voice since ''Tekken 3'', and he generally did a good job at imitating a Hong Kong English accent. However, ''Tekken 6'' inexplicably replaced him with David Jeremiah, who sounds unabashedly ''American''.

** Tekken 3 was to include a JokeCharacter named Sake, who would serve as a mid-boss and simply flop around whenever one presses a button. Sake was DummiedOut because [[WordOfGod Katsuhiro Harada]] believed that arcade players would feel ripped off if they were to pick the character. The remnants of Sake exist as Yoshimitsu's model mixed with Jin Kazama's moveset.

** To explain it: the name ''kanji'' of Kazumi had already been introduced way back in ''Tekken 2'', on Heihachi's stage. Through a generous GuideDangIt, you can force the camera to look down into a certain part of the floor to see a writing: 一美 (傘) 平八 (in fact, most of the trailers emphasized this part to show you that Kazumi is not an AssPull). The first two kanji are Kazumi's, the last two are Heihachi's, and the middle means "umbrella". It's a Japanese expression to show love between couples, so back then, it had been confirmed that whoever Heihachi's wife was named 一美. But because personal name kanji is so notoriously hard to predict, you can guess whatever readings from that: "Kazumi", "Hitomi", "Izumi", "Itsumi", [[OddNameOut "Kunitoshi"]]... The {{Fandom}} took "Kazumi" as their choice, possibly because it fits Kazuya's naming pattern better.
