* ButtonMashing: Eddy Gordo. Many people saw the flailing and unpredictable kick attacks, and just hit the buttons at random to produce something. People do this even during the prefight introductions.
** Not helped by the fact that [[GameBreaker balance issues]] early on made this a semi-viable strategy with Eddy.
*** And it goes to show that old habits die hard: people '''''still''''' do this with the three Capoeira fighters as of ''Tag 2''.

** The loser-incorparated winposes in ''Tekken 4'' and onward can count as this. Lose, and you might end up becoming Anna's plaything, held up by the throat by Kazuya, ''choked out'' by Devil Jin and ''viciously'' and ''violently'' beaten by Bryan.

** We gonna just gloss over Marduk carrying poor unconscious Anna Williams over his shoulder after beating her in his ''Tekken 5'' story mode?

** When you look past Marshall Law's ButtMonkey elements, you can't help but to feel for the guy. After successfully getting revenge from the man who beat his students and nearly destroyed his dojo, Marshall drops out of the martial arts life for good and becomes a profitable and wealthy businessman (explaining his disappearance in ''Tekken 3''). But come the 4th Iron Fist tournament, he must file bankruptcy and becomes broke ''at the drop of a dime.'' He sees the tournament as his last option to jumpstarting his business again and renews his determination like no other--but he fails. He can't even afford to return home from Japan so he begins illegally working there in a desperate attempt to save up enough money to get home. His son is badly injured and is in need of medical attention. Marshall tries his luck again in the 5th Iron Fist Tournament--he fails. He is eventually discovered illegally working and deported back home. The time to pay off the medical bills is running out, so he desperately comes up with a plan to team up with Paul and Steve and share the prize winnings should one of them win the 6th Iron Fist tournament--they ''all'' fail. Now, his dojo is falling apart while he's still trying to figure out a way to pay for his son's medical bills, this time entering the 7th Iron Fist tournament to see if a certain someone he hears of is worthy enough to take care of his dojo and bring back in more students.

** Eliza returning in ''Tekken 7'' has gotten many people riled up for being ''yet another'' "waifu bait" character as opposed to a more traditional fighter. As the game already featured Lili, Asuka, Xiaoyu, Alisa, Josie, ''and'' Lucky Chloe, there are more than just a few who have accused Harada of deliberately PanderingToTheBase for what some view as the LowestCommonDenominator. The only way to avoid having Eliza in the base game is to ''not'' pre-order has also pissed off those gamers who want to do just that. The fact that she's getting it, while other characters like Armor King, Marduk, Bruce, and Baek have been cut is another point of contention.

** Lili is ''really popular'' for someone not involved in the whole Devil Gene business. She even appears as the sole ''Tekken'' representative in ''[[Anime/QueensBlade Queen's Gate: Spiral Chaos]]'' and also pops up in ''[=SFxT=]''. She was also among ''the first'' characters revealed for ''Tekken 6'', seen alongside Jin and Hwoarang in the E3 2006 trailer. And ''Tag 2'' is giving her a spectacular, exclusive costume for her.

In fact, it's gotten to the point where she has usurped Nina's position as the the ''poster girl'' for the ''Tekken'' series, having become the focus of the marketing and being among the first characters revealed for the game, whereas Nina had to wait until ''Fated Retribution'' to get in.

* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome:
** From the 2010 film, a news report mentions that Marshall Law qualified for the Iron Fist Open Call by beating Paul Phoenix. [[CurbStompBattle In 28 seconds]].
** Jun fighting off Devil ''while pregnant with Jin''.

*** Then it's double-subverted as the ending didn't become canon (Jin is the one who defeated and killed Jinpachi), Kazuya dropped out of the tournament and probably still held his memories and love for Jinpachi (and proven in ''Tag 2'', he's the only one who has a good tag relations with him)... but then probably crossed another one: his wholesale slaughter of the G Corporation that revived him, in order to take over the corporation and stand a chance against Jin's Zaibatsu.
*** A bit subverted, but probably not enough to get him off the horizon, because the reason Kazuya had that wholesale slaughter because he got information that G Corporation was planning to stab him on the back, thus sending out the Jacks to kill him and Heihachi in Hon-Maru in the beginning of ''5'' (that was the reason he dropped out in the first place: exacting revenge), the takeover to make the company a rival of Jin's Zaibatsu is just a bonus. Still sounded a lot like a DisproportionateRetribution, though, since it's possible that Kazuya either got the wrong information then got overly paranoid.

*** And then there are the players taking issue with her being a pre-order bonus for a different reason - that of course, being the fact that Harada has gone back on his word regarding DLC (see below).

** As far as [[Website/DeviantArt deviantART]] is concerned, pairing Zafina with either Miguel or Dragunov is fair game. Though as far as [[Website/DeviantArt deviantART]] is concerned, pretty much '''[[{{Squick}} everything]]''' [[NauseaFuel is]] [[ThisIsWrongOnSoManyLevels fair game]].
