** '''WHINING FOOLS BEGONE!''' [[labelnote:Explanation]]The reveal trailer for Geese Howard includes this line. The fans interpreted it as a not-so subtle meta jab thrown in by Harada, who has been known for trolling antics on Twitter.[[/labelnote]].

** [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C6ZJMNRXEAAxoMn.jpg:orig Akuma with a Shotgun]] [[labelnote:Explanation]]Tekken pretty much allows every single fighter to be customized and some of the items that they can be given can be used with secret input so the Idea of customizing Akuma in of itself is hilarious. But what has fans rolling is the fact that you can give Akuma of all people a shotgun and then have him ''use'' it.

*** Story Mode itself. Katsuhiro Harada promised ''Tekken 7'''s story would finish the Mishima storyline. However, what's seen there is a complete focus in a single point: Heihachi and Kazuya's feud. Even [[GuestFighter Akuma]], who was promoted like hell as an active character in the story, has a minor role close to those two. Actually, ''Kazumi Mishima, which was supposed to be this game's FinalBoss, is completely shunted aside in favor of Kazuya and Heihachi''. The end result is that the plot only solves the feud between Kazuya and Heihachi [[spoiler:with Kazuya as the victor]], and all other important plot threads of the MythArc, namely Lars, Jin and Asuka, get left forgotten. The entire value of the game's story to players may slide from PlayTheGameSkipTheStory all the way up to CasualCompetitiveConflict. There's also whether you either consider the game's Story Mode as if Harada kept his promise by means of ExactWords[[note]]This would mean ignoring Jin and Lars' status as sons of a Mishima[[/note]], or not.

** Hell, ''Tekken 7'' itself is quickly becoming the most divisive entry in the entire series since the fourth game. The common complaint is that [[ItsTheSameSoItSucks it's more of the same]], but one camp sees the series' staples as tried-and-true and thus finds nothing wrong with it. Another camp, however, claims that, between the polarizing new characters, the recycled assets (character models, sound bytes, animations, voices and mechanics), the lackluster soundtrack and the lack of hype in comparison to other fighting games, this installment is evidence that the ''Tekken'' series is on life support.

*** The lack of character endings on Arcade Mode, along with the way Story Mode treats everyone who isn't Kazuya or Heihachi Mishima, is divisive enough to enforce RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement thanks to CasualCompetitiveConflict. Not helping is the fact that the same people were fresh off ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'''s exact same problems with general content causing the exact same heated debate. Thanks to this, people who actually paid attention to ''Tekken'''s storyline is now afraid of what will become of ''VideoGame/SoulCaliburVI'', not only because of what was seen on ''T7'', but also because of ''VideoGame/SoulCaliburV'' being a ''five years earlier case''.

** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV Noctis Lucis Caellum]] is not safe from this. True, he's pretty much accepted by a good part of the fanbase, but he is also heavily derided; some fans consider Noctis as Harada's method of riding the wave of currently popular games such as Final Fantasy XV (This game itself [[BrokenBase being a base breaker of its own]] ''[[BrokenBase in its very franchise's fanbase]]'' also doesn't help), or just outright dismiss him as someone who just doesn't belong on Tekken's world.

[[note]]This somehow brings into question [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Geese Howard]] as well, as ''The King of Fighters XIV'' has become quite a popular return of the franchise as well. Unlike Noctis, however, Geese is unanimously accepted by the fanbase.[[/note]]

*** Doesn't help that Harada confirmed on twitter that Jun and Asuka are't even cousins, just "part of the same clan."
