* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: The series is famous in the fighting game scene for being this. While most other 3D fighting games would rather have small character rosters (''VideoGame/VirtuaFighter'' and ''VideoGame/SoulSeries'' come to mind), ''Tekken'' isn't shy for having a large character roster that just keeps expanding with each game; in fact, it is one of its selling points. ''Tekken 6'' features 41 characters, while the non-canonical ''Tag 2'' features a grand total of ''59'' playable characters (including DLC), all of which aren't PaletteSwap of each other.
** It seems that this reason is exactly why the roster is scaled down to a more manageable 30-ish in ''Tekken 7''. WordOfGod says that ''Tag 2'''s monstrous roster keeps newbies from joining the series out of sheer fear of having to learn to use and combat that much characters.

* MeaningfulName: Kuma is the Japanese word for "[[ADogNamedDog Bear]]". Mokujin is Japanese for "wood(en) man." And Mokujin's {{Palette Swap}}s Tetsujin and Kinjin are also similarly named -- their names meaning "iron man" and "gold man" respectively. As for [[ADogNamedDog Panda]]...[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin no explanation necessary]].

* SoundtrackDissonance: Almost a given with the presence of Tekken Tunes in ''Tag Tournament 2'', which allows players to replace the game's [=BGMs=] with music from their console hard drives. [[WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay Matt and Pat]] were two of the most notable offenders, deciding to use the soundtrack from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]''.

* DownerEnding: While Tekken endings are often ambiguous enough as to what will happen next to make it unclear if this is ever the case, with Tekken 7 having a story mode it is considering how [[spoiler:Heihachi died after it was revealed he was a Well-Intentioned Extremist, Kazuya is more of a devil than ever, Jin is still recovering from the events of Tekken 6, and Akuma couldn't fulfill Kazumi's dying wish.]]

Eventually, Heihachi comes back and reclaims his place, killing Kazuya by throwing him into a volcano. The third game takes place after a TimeSkip and deals with Kazuya's son, Jin Kazama. The fourth deals with the [[BackFromTheDead return of Kazuya]], and later games continue to cover the struggle inside the Mishima family, with the Devil Gene complicating matters, and [[SerialEscalation even involving an]] EldritchAbomination. A seventh game, featuring the appearance of Heihachi's wife and Kazuya's mother, [[MissingMom Kazumi Mishima]], is said to conclude the Mishima saga, though not the ''Tekken'' series as a whole.

** The Treasure Battle mode in ''7'' allows you to fight for either Fight Money or customization items for characters, along with bringing up your offline rank.

The console-only stage Brimstone and Fire lets you fight right by the lava; knocking an opponent down right by the wall will actually land them ''on'' the lava itself, without any effect.



* TheCharacterDiedWithHim: Of a sort. Heihachi seems to have been killed off for good in Tekken 7, since Daisuke Gori died around the time of Tekken Tag Tournament 2, with a replacement voice actor doing any new voice work for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Tekken 7, due to Japan's policy on almost never replacing a deceased voice actor.

** 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'' 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.



* SlideAttack: Upon running 3 steps worth and inputting LK. Lee has a variant which he can pull off from a crouching position or his Mist Step. The Laws can do this as well.

* AmbiguousGender: Leo. WordOfGod says female and she gets a bikini in ''Tekken Tag Tournament 2'' to affirm this fact. If one goes by voicing, though, it is hazy; Veronica Taylor provides Leo's voice during the time she is speaking English, but when she switches to speaking German, [[CrossdressingVoices a male voice actor is provided]]. In Tekken 7 she can be cutomized to wear both male and female clothing too, blurring the line even further.
