* ScrappyMechanic: The juggling system gets a lot of heat from certain players as is, but the inclusion of Bounds starting in ''6'' hasn't helped in the slightest. God help you if you're cornered, up against a wall. Of course, the trick lies in actually reading your opponent and thus being able to ''block'' the openers for said juggles, but one mistake against a skilled enough player and you're dead meat (there's a reason they're called "touch of death" combos, after all).

** A minor example from ''7'' is the fact that customization parts for DLC characters can be unlocked regardless of whether one purchased them or not. While this is helpful if one intends to buy them anyway, those who don't have a small risk of one of their treasure chests in Treasure Battle, including the rainbow chests, being bogus.



* SidetrackedByTheGoldSaucer: ''Tekken Bowl'' in the [=PS2=] version of ''Tekken Tag Tournament''. Anyone who tells you they didn't waste hours playing it is a liar. The [[UrbanLegendOfZelda persistent rumour of unlocking Dr. Bosconovitch through it]] didn't help matters. So popular, it even appeared as a free iOS app to celebrate the premiere of ''Blood Vengeance''. ''Tekken Ball'' in ''Tekken 3'' also counts, if only because it was the easiest way to unlock [[GuestFighter Gon]].

** Leo. To the point that there's [[FlameWar a split]] on whether Leo is a boy with a [[CrossdressingVoices high-pitched voice]], or just a tomboy. It didn't help that the Japanese used ''gender-neutral pronouns'' (or just the character's name) when referring to Leo. (What most don't know when regarding Leo is that s/he is 19 years old, and thus an adult. The term "boy" wouldn't really apply in most countries; this is a "man" if Leo is male. Anyway, technicalities.) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvzFEKWzN8k It was finally revealed by]] [[WordOfGod Harada himself]] that Leo is, in fact, female.

But now there's even MORE confusion as Leo is referred to as he on the official Tekken 7 website...!

** No mention of NANCY from Tekken 6? A bonus boss always fought before Jin in arcade mode, NANCY is a gigantic robot with attacks capable of decimating you in a short amount of time. She also has around 3 times the health of everyone else making all your attacks do pitiful damage, doesn't flinch from attacks and can even cause an instant loss by shooting lasers at the floor directly beneath you. The fact that losing to her adds a loss to your win/loss ratio is just rubbing salt in the wound.

* StuckInTheirShadow: Nina's status as ''Tekken'''s poster girl seems to have been supplanted by Lili in recent years. Advertisements have put more focus on Lili than Nina, fans have put much more adoration in Lili, and Lili was one of the first characters revealed for ''Tekken 7'', while Nina had to wait until ''Fated Retribution'' until she's included. It probably helps that Lili's personality is far more tsundere and charming compared to the sexy but [[IceQueen extremely cold-blooded]] Nina.

* DesignatedHero: Heihachi was, more or less, the central character in ''Tekken 2'' alongside Jun. The franchise as a whole runs on this trope, with Kazuya the lead in 1 and BaseBreaker Jin the lead in every game from 3.

* UncannyValley: That damn smile Kazuya does in his ''Tekken 1'' ending.
** What about [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o43Opam2f84 the intro for]] ''Tekken 2''? Looks like Heihachi is gonna swallow you up!

ending looks ''off'' in more disturbing ways than it was probably intended to be.

** Despite being cousins, [[KissingCousins Jin and Asuka]] receive a lot of attention from shippers who don't pair them with their respective rivals, Hwoarang and Lili. It helps that the exact nature of their relationship largely remains a blank slate (it isn't even established whether they are first, second, or third cousins), which leads to plenty of untapped story potential.

** [[KissingCousins Jin and Asuka]] receive too much attention from the shippers in the fifth game, despite the fact that they are cousins and showing the iron dynamics LikeBrotherAndSister of the relationship. However, this went into decline with the advent of Lily and the ever-growing LesYay between her and Asuka.
** Nina is sometimes quite anxiously pairing by some people [[BrotherSisterIncest with her sister Anna]] because of the very strong FoeYay between them and her sister's very playful manner of communicating with her. The fact that Nina is practically not interested in men, and Anna has a strong reputation for ReallyGetsAround in fandom, makes everything worse. This also happens [[ParentalIncest to Steve in subsequent games]], since, due to the nature of his birth and the formal absence of age difference, many forget that he is [[DesignerBaby technically her son]].

** Katarina is considered a rather bad character- she has a lot of recovery on her moves, and while she puts up a lot of pressure she doesn't really do anything special. That is, of course, if you discount her 4+4 rapid kicks, which deal absolutely insane amounts of damage (for example, [[https://youtu.be/yBbG2D81zbw?t=20s here's a rather simple combo with her)]] . She's an excellent pubstomper at low levels, and while no true Tekken character is ''bad'', she's the one that will easily make you most angry at the game if you fight someone who spams kicks as her.

** The lack of any kind of tutorial for most of the games is extremely irritating, especially come Tekken 7 (which is the first to be released on the eighth gen of consoles). There's a rather huge amount of information for the average player to take in, even without high-level techniques like wavedashing, and the only time the game explains any of it is in the tooltips. The rest is meant to be learned on the fly and with practice, but there's just so many things the game will never even hint exists in the first place, such as parrying. Considering the fact that games like Videogame/GuiltyGear and Videogame/KillerInstinct have been praised for their in-depth and excellent tutorials it just seems like laziness on the part of the developers.
