** Heihachi's d+1, 2 string in ''Tekken: Dark Resurrection'' on PSP (and possibly the [=PS3=] as well) would beat any AI opponent at any difficulty. The AI just couldn't seem to block the palm thrust (and the AI is otherwise a PerfectPlayAI at Ultra Hard difficulty so this is a glaring oversight). Interestingly, despite being the same move for all intents and purposes, the AI was not nearly as susceptible to the same command from Paul.

** Performing Miguel's Rage Art on a robot (Alisa or Jack-7) would cause their view to be clouded with static instead of slowly losing vision like the rest of the cast.

** Miguel in ''6'' had a unique intro quote when facing against Jin. ''7'' expanded on this with specific pre-battle animations between the Mishimas, Akuma and Geese.

* LawyerFriendlyCameo: The final bosses of ''Tekken Tag 2''[='s=] Fight Lab are Bob, Ganryu and Jinpachi wearing outfits that are similar (way too similar) to [[Franchise/StreetFighter Ken, Ryu and (Shin) Akuma.]] Granted, both ''Tekken'' and ''Street Fighter'' [[VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken just crossed over]] and are set to cross over again in the opposite direction. One could imagine the secretary going "There's a Mr. Akuma here to see you. He heard about the simulated versions. Yes, he's cracking his knuckles..."

** There is a special category of attacks in the game many Tekken players refer to as "Just Frame" moves that require highly precise inputs performed within a significantly narrow time frame. With a few exceptions, these moves tend to be either unlisted on a character's movelist, or they are listed but without any indication of there being a Just Frame version. More often than not, being considered an expert in using a particular character who has Just Frame moves involves mastering said commands and being able to reliably use them when necessary during fights. The most famous example is the Mishima characters' EWGF (Electric Wind God Fist), an offensively faster (as well as slightly more damaging) and defensively safer variant of the Wind God Fist attack.

In fact, part of the reason the Mishimas are so notoriously this trope is the fact that many of their best combos involve using the EWGF ''multiple times'' in juggles.

** ''7'' adds the Italian character Claudio, Shaheen who speaks Arabic, and another Brazilian, Katarina. Lucky Chloe's nationality isn't specified, and is made confusing by her speaking Japanese, along with some accented English. The trope is played straight, however, by Filipina fighter Josie Rizal, who speaks clear, unaccented English with absolutely no hint of Tagalog or any other Filipino dialect.

* UpgradeVsPrototypeFight: JACK (and later JACK-2) against Prototype JACK. It's even in the name.
* TheUnintelligible: The animal characters and Mokujin, naturally. The Jacks, Ogre, King and Armor King; bit out there, but not that bizarre in light of most other weirdness in the series. As of ''6'', Yoshimitsu also counts; some of his lines are still actually intelligible to some extent, but in his case, unlike the other aforementioned characters, the game just doesn't bother with subtitles.

* EasilyForgiven:
** King forgave Marduk for not only killing Armor King, but spitting on Armor King's name; basically they're now best buds. Armor King II, however...
** After forming an alliance to put an end to his terror, spending a whole game hunting him down, Lars decides Jin [[spoiler:is the savior of the world in ''Tekken 7'' and allies with him to put an end to the Zaibatsu/G Corporation war, a war ''he started'', during the finale. This is lessened a little when Lars tells the narrator that he wants to kill Jin if not for the circumstances but that's still a pretty big change of heart]].

* {{Flanderization}}:
** The conflict between the Williams sisters received this. In Tekken 1 and 2, it was mostly just Nina playing mean pranks on Anna (stealing one of her shoes in Ninas T1 ending, taking nude Polaroids of her getting out of the shower in Anna's T2 ending). By the time Tekken Tag and Tekken 4 rolled around, it had shifted to the two of them attempting to outright murder each other.
** Paul Phoenix started out as a serious American martial arts expert who rides bikes as a pastime along with training with his friend Marshall Law. From ''5'' onward, he turned into a clueless, bumbling idiot who wants to fight aliens to prove he's the toughest in the universe, and who also has an ongoing vendetta against Kuma, a ''bear'', of all characters. ''7'' pits him against Panda, continuing this unfortunate trend.
