Asuka Kazama - Japan
Asuka in Tag 2
You're gonna get hurt!
Jin Kazama's Osaka cousin. Asuka's first reason to enter the tourney in 5
was to take out the person who put her father in the hospital (that would be Feng). Lei Wulong gave her the info, and even though she's unable to find Feng, she just stays in the tournament for "fun". She doesn't win, though manages to make a Rival out of Lili
in Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection
. In Tekken 6
, Asuka finds out that her cousin Jin is trying to take over the world, so she gets ready to kick his ass like any other loving family member would. Seeing as they're part of the Mishimas
, that isn't surprising.
Interestingly enough about Asuka, she seems to be able to counter the Devil Gene. In her Tekken 5
ending, Jin's horns, tattoos, and wings all disappear at her touch.
Tropes associated with Asuka:
- Action Girl
- Ascended Extra: Ryōko Shiraishi (her Japanese voice actress) performed the vocals for the Tekken 2 ending credits song, "Landscape Under the Ghost - Kaminano", and sang it again for Tekken Tag Tournament 2's credits.
- Badass Adorable
- Bare Your Midriff: Her standard outfit. Also her second outfit in Tag 2.
- Berserk Button: Ogling her chest or Lili's zany schemes. In her 5 ending, Jin managed to take it a step further by falling on top of her with his head landing on her chest. Also causing her to drop her food in another way to piss her off.
- Boobs of Steel: A Blood Knight Bully Hunter that loves to brawl, and has one of the largest cup sizes in the series.
- Bully Hunter: Her story in 5. In 6, even when trying to save the world from her cousin, she takes time out to kick the ass of whoever's attacking the Kazama dojo (or at least, she thinks is attacking it, and if you play as Lei, it's implied that she's really just in a ferment over the whole problem with Jin). By the second Tag game it seems to be a full time job — a "Gang Mediator". In Lili's ending, she usurps (by paying people) Asuka's role just to piss her off.
- Counter Attack: Has several
- Cute Bruiser
- Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: In Devil Jin's T5 story mode.
- Facepalm Of Doom: Her Aki Nage throw, and her Rengetsu and Falling tower move
- Fingerless Gloves
- Generation Xerox: To Jun Kazama, necessitating Divergent Character Evolution for the latter in Tag 2.
- Good Is Not Soft: Picture a less pure and more sociable version of Jun. Okay, good. Now picture her laying the smackdown on mafia gangs, arrogant kung fu guys and really wants to do it to the Big Bad, her cousin.
- Idiot From Osaka: Loud, and brash. Yup.
- Intergenerational Friendship: With Lei. He's the officer that informs her about Feng and Scenario Campaign reveals that they remain chummy afterwards.
- Jiggle Physics: Almost to Anna's level.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Granted, the "Jerk" part of her persona is directed towards people who deserve it, on the other hand, she's seen rescuing a cat during the Tekken 5 intro, the reason why she went after Feng Wei was to avenge the latter's attack on her father and her reason for wanting to go after Jin was because he had started a war.
- Kansai Regional Accent
- Kindhearted Cat Lover: Maybe the most triumphant example if the Tekken 5 intro is any indication.
- Lost Food Grievance: Her ending in 6, despite being late for school. She was more pissed off at Lili knocking down her bento than anything else.
- Meaningful Name: Her name was taken from the Asuka River in Nara prefecture, near where Katsuhiro Harada's parents lived.
- Ms. Fanservice/Gag Boobs: Take this◊ concept art for one of her extra costumes in 5.
- My Eyes Are Up Here: Although she'd sooner kick your ass for looking than actually say it. See her TTT2 ending.
- Ordinary High-School Student
- Plucky Girl
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: She's the red to Lili's blue; making the colors of their outfits somewhat ironic (Lili's neck ribbon is red).
- She's Got Legs
- Spirited Competitor
- Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Asuka has every move of her aunt Jun, including the ones she received for Tekken Tag Tournament. There is a subversion here, as Asuka was designed as a foil to Jun.
- It's shown in Tag 2, while she is more aggressive.
- Tomboy: She's the tomboy to her rival Lili's girly girl.
- You Go Girl
Feng Wei - China
Feng in Tag 2
Voiced by: Chuan Yin Li
Feng is the star pupil of the "God Fist" style. However, in process of his show of power, he broke the dojo's rules, is scolded by his master and he kills him. He intends on getting the God Fist scroll, and breaks dojos here and there, and eventually enters the King of Iron Fist tournament. He eventually found the scroll, but it only gives the overview of the ultimate style, which prompts him to re-enter the next tournament.
Tropes associated with Feng Wei:
- Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Despite being a man of few words, he is very arrogant nevertheless. However, he shows great respect to martial arts master, e.g. Wang.
- Badass in a Nice Suit: As an alternative to Walking Shirtless Scene.
- Berserk Button: As confronting him in Scenario Campaign in general, and his TTT2 ending in particular indicate, interfering with or interdicting his training is an extremely bad idea.
- Braids of Action
- Deceptive Disciple: Although the killing wasn't planned from the beginning. Rather, once it became clear his master was going to be a barricade to his quest to martial perfection, down came the sentence of death, and said sentence's execution.
- Easily Forgiven: If you play as Wang when you face him in Tekken 6 it'll be revealed that Feng's master is not only alive and well but welcomes him back with open arms.
- Even Kung Fu Arrogancy Has Standards: A subversion, whereas when Asuka accuses him for not treating her like a girl, Feng replies that if he didn't fight at full strength, that's disrespect. And when defeated by Wang in the latter's Story mode, he humbly accepts defeat.
- Interestingly, in Tag 2, Feng Wei has a move where he does a series of kicks with his hands behind his back, and Wang also has a similar-looking move as well.
- Expy: Of classic Hong Kong action star Gordon Liu.
- Hellish Pupils: In his first ending, where he gets dragon pupils.
- Instant Awesome, Just Add Dragons: His first ending.
- No Pronunciation Guide: The announcers, narrators and most of the fans pronounce his name wrong. It's pronounced "Fong". The E in his name doesn't help.
- Walking Shirtless Scene
Raven - ???
Raven in Tag 2
I cannot allow you to interfere.
Jack Merluzzi (5), DC Douglas
A spec-ops agent sent to investigate the Mishima Zaibatsu. Everything about him is shrouded in mystery, except that he knows Ninjitsu.
Tropes associated with Raven:
- Asian Rune Chant/Hand Seals: One of his winning poses. He actually tries to teach Yoshimitsu how to do it properly. This is only if the player chooses to intentionally (or not) lose against Raven in Yoshimitsu's Tekken 5 rival battle and discontinue. His special win poses with both Yoshimitsu and Kunimitsu in TTT2 have them doing it properly.
- Cool Shades
- Dark-Skinned Blond
- Death from Above: Aside from the below trope, he actually has an unblockable attack called this.
- Doppelgänger Attack
- Dual Wielding: Although he never uses them while fighting, Raven carries two knives with him. In the intro to 5, he makes short work of a Jack-4 this way.
- Dynamic Entry: Blind Ghost. As of 6, the move now has Raven dragging the opponent's head on the floor from the momentum of the kick!
- Fingerless Gloves
- Flash Step: He does this in attacks and one pre-fight cutscene.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has a large X-shaped scar across his face. X Marks the Hero, perhaps?
- Names to Run Away From Really Fast: The raven is a bird symbolizing death.
- Nothing Personal: He only acts within his mission parameters. When he wins, one of his win poses has him say "It's just business. Don't take it personally."
- Subverted in his Tag 2 ending, when he takes down Yoshimitsu for personal reasons before resuming his mission.
- Only Known By Their Code Name
- Red Baron: The Dark Talon of Death.
- Scarf of Asskicking
- Scary Black Man
- See You in Hell: One of his victory quotes.
- Shout-Out: His unlockable costume in 5 looks like a getup you can unlock for Ryu Hayabusa in the Xbox Ninja Gaiden, right down to the color scheme.
- It also looks like the outfit Blade wore in the comics when he was brainwashed by Silver Eye.
- His ending in 5 is Raven merely saying "Misson Complete" and then leaving the battlefield with style ala Strider.
- Customization options in 6 allow you to make him look like Albert Wesker, who is his voice actor's most famous role.
- Shrouded in Myth
- The Stoic
- Whole Costume Reference: Bears a striking resemblance to Wesley Snipes' two most famous roles, Blade and Simon Phoenix.
Introduced in Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection
Armor King II - ???
Armor King II in Tag 2
(more jaguar noises)
A new Masked Luchador
taking after the deceased Armor King. His background is shrouded with mystery, but his fighting style was one of quite the brutal Heel
. He first appears in the 5th King of Iron Fist tournament, setting his sights on Craig Marduk, and swiftly kicked him in the ass.
He later reappears in the 6th tournament, confronted by both Marduk and King II, whereas this Armor King reveals that he is the younger brother of the original Armor King... and he certainly isn't going to forgive Marduk that easily for killing his brother
Tropes associated with Armor King II:
- Armor Is Useless: Like his predecessor, his armor doesn't really seem to help him much in fights. He takes the same amount of damage as other characters.
- Breath Weapon: Sometimes green mist, sometimes fire. Nobody knows how he pulls this off while still wearing his mask.
- Cool Mask
- Heel: He's got a lot of below-the-belt techniques.
- Heel Is Not Evil: Despite being a Heel and not exactly the nicest person around, Armor King II isn't a total scumbag that he tolerates other people, went out of his way to free the G Corporation's experimental Human Resources, and was even willing to team with Jaycee, who is actually Julia Chang, a friend of King II, with no malicious intentions, in TTT2.
- Professional Wrestling: Moreso on Japanese puroresu moves than King II's WWE-based ones.
- The Rival: For King II.
- Friendly Rival: Despite the rocky relationship, King and Armor King share a positive relationship in Tag Tournament 2 (i.e. the requirements of Tag Rage for both are easy to fulfill). In one of their win poses, Armor King even raises King's arm in victory, similar to how normal tag teams would.
- Scary Black Man
- Spikes of Villainy: He isn't exactly a villain, but is more than willing to rip Marduk a new one.
- The Voiceless
- You Killed My Brother: To Marduk. And he's not going to just let him off easily.
Emilie "Lili" de Rochefort - Monaco
Lili in Tag 2
My battles... are for my father.
Joy Jacobson (5-6), Rachel Hirschfield (6, Scenario Campaign), Laura Blanc (Tag 2), Rina Sato
Debuting in Dark Resurrection
, Lili is the only daughter of a rich tycoon company owner. Has a butler named Sebastian, and while she has the makings of a Spoiled Brat
, she's not quite and instead is a graceful Ojou
. At one point, she was kidnapped by mafia who tried to get some ransom from her... but they didn't expect her to struggle that hard, so much that she develops her own lust of battle out of that fight. Unfortunately for Lili, her father abhors violence, and she still respects him, but at the same time, she just can't let go of her battle lust. Solution? Make excuses of traveling, then participate in street fights.
Until at one point in a street fight, she managed to snatch an invitation to the 5th King of Iron Fist Tournament from an opponent she defeated (suspiciously looking like Forrest Law). Learning that it's from her father's rival company, the Mishima Zaibatsu, Lili entered to help her father take down the Zaibatsu so there would be no more rivals. That doesn't work so well, after Asuka Kazama whooped her hard, and her father found out about her 'hidden activities', resulting in her getting grounded. In the eve of the 6th tournament, however, the Rochefort company is in danger of bankruptcy, and for Lili, the only way to save it is to... win the tournament, so she decided to enter again, maybe with her father's reluctant blessing this time. But, then again, that gives her a chance to take revenge on Asuka...
Tropes associated with Lili:
- Ambiguously Bi: Has been shown to have a crush on Ganryu due to his eyebrows on top of a massive amount of Les Yay, from her relationship with Asuka in all appearances together to being a Covert Pervert Yuri Fan in Queen's Blade.
- Badass Adorable
- Berserk Button: Try not to let slip that you don't think much of her father. It's a quick route to the top of her "needs to be challenged" list.
- Big Fancy House: As any Monégasque will tell you, large property in the tiny principality is outrageously expensive, so with her mausoleum-sized bedroom (let alone the rest of the mansion), Lili (or rather her papa) is ostensibly loaded. In addition, consider that neither the Japanese branch of Violet Systems, nor the G Corporation's Millennium Tower, really impresses her. Despite how so many other characters in Scenario Campaign are in awe of how ridiculously large they are.
- Blood Knight: She wants to be one.
- Bratty Teenage Daughter: Though she's definitely gotten better.
- Chubby Chaser: In some sort of weird fashion Lili is very infatuated with Ganryu's eyebrows... yeah, her reason being his eyebrows are very much like her father's whom she adores. In hers and Ganryu's victory poses in Tag 2 Lili is completely mesmerised with Ganryu, he doesn't seem to notice or care though.
- Combat Stilettos: She wears high-heeled boots in her default costume and high-heeled sandals in her special costume from 6. Which may be why Asuka staggers after Lili jumps off her back during their special Tag throw in Tag 2.
- Cute Bruiser
- Daddy's Girl
- Dance Battler: Not Capoeira, but she uses a lot of ballet moves in her style.
- Dangerously Short Skirt: While not that short, her dress shows quite a bit of her legs, which she uses to kick ass.
- Don't Tell Mama: One of her win poses has her ask asking her defeated foe not to tell her father.
- Everything Sounds Sexier in French: As of Tag 2.
- Fingerless Gloves
- Foreign Fanservice: She's from Monaco.
- Monaco: The incredibly expensive, exclusive European principality serves as the perfect homeland for her character as a young heiress and socialite.
- Girly Run: Observable while she's being used in Scenario Campaign.
- Hime Cut
- Hopeless Suitor: If TTT2 is any indication. When teamed up with Ganryu, one of their victory animations invokes this. Lili leers longingly at Ganryu, and chases after him as he walks right past her as if she isn't there.
- I'm Taking It Home With Me!: In Scenario Campaign, her reaction to Kuma and Mokujin.
- Joshikousei: In her, Xiaoyu, and Asuka's endings in 6.
- Lady of War: In the making.
- Longing Look: To Ganryu in both Dark Resurrection and TTT2.
- Missing Mom: Lili's mother hasn't been seen or even mentioned so far.
- Ms. Fanservice: Lili seems to have become Tekken's go-to girl for fanservice lately. As◊ seen◊ here.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Her ending in 5. She takes down Mishima Zaibatsu, but this causes the Rochefort company to go into bankruptcy.
- As a bit of an aside, whether or not related to her actions directly, her father's company ends up on the ropes anyway by the time Tekken 6 rolls around.
- Noblewoman's Laugh: Does this often. In her Tekken 5 ending, it looks like she's Laughing Mad.
- Panty Shot: Plenty. Occurs easily enough, given her very short dress and her tendency to perform very high kicks...
- Rebellious Princess: Goes against her father's will to not fight, and all...
- Rich Bitch: Albeit getting better.
- Some would argue that she's Spoiled Sweet. After all, she does have her father's best interests at heart.
- The Rival and Tomboy and Girly Girl: With Cute Bruiser Asuka Kazama in the tomboy role.
- Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Seems to operate under this trope for a moment, but in Tekken 6, she can't do it anymore.
- She-Fu: Lili's fighting style fits this trope to a T. Has stylish balletic moves, with liberal use of flips. And a move where she does an aerial somersault; if she lands on the opponent's head, she does a double snap kick in the air.Take that, physics!
- She's Got Legs
- Shout-Out: She can be customized to look like Karin and her rivalry with Asuka even mirrors the one with Sakura.
- Statuesque Stunner: Is the tallest female competitor, standing at a height of 5'9". And looks even taller due to her preference for high-heeled shoes.
- Troll: She's dedicated to making up tons of zany schemes to piss Asuka off so they'll end up fighting. And Asuka falls for them every time. The one in her Tag 2 ending is a very, very convoluted one, and Sebastian even has doubts regarding her... peculiar displays of affection.
- Tsundere: Towards Asuka. Her TTT2 allegiance chart makes clear that Asuka is listed as one of the people that Lili enjoys, though her affections are overall expressed via trolling Asuka into fighting her more than anything else.
- Wealthy Yacht Owner: She has an enormous yacht. In Street Fighter X Tekken she argues with her teammate Asuka why they don't just use it to get to the South Pole (where the game's central MacGuffin is located), and Asuka replies "That would be like painting a massive target on our backs."
- Woman in White
Sergei Dragunov - Russia
Sergei in Tag 2
Voiced by: Kenichi Morozumi
A Spetsnaz officer working with the Russian government to investigate the Mishima Zaibatsu. He is feared on the battlefield as "The White Angel of Death".
Tropes associated with Dragunov:
- The Comically Serious: In his TTT2 ending.
- Combat Pragmatist: Inherent in his fighting style. Some punches of his include an ear grab and an eye poke, among others.
- Covered with Scars: Has a few very noticeable scars on his face (including one through his lips and down his chin, another across his nose), and also has several all over his torso and arms (including a bullet wound in his left shoulder).
- Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: To an extreme degree.
- Foil: Arguably one to Bryan. While both are very much capable of ruthless violence when fighting, Dragunov is a lot more disciplined, while Bryan is overtly sadistic.
- Hidden Depths: According to Word of God, he enjoys singing outside of battle. The fact that he hums in one of his Tekken 6 win poses could be an indicator of this.
- Hopeless With Tech: He is shockingly inept at assembling Alisa in his Tekken Tag Tournament 2 ending.
- Icy Blue Eyes: A very pale, almost-white blue.
- Meaningful Name: His name is based on the two Russian rifle designers Sergei Simonov and Evgeny Dragunov.
- The Rival: Of Raven in 6. Scenario Campaign dialogue when playing as Dragunov even reveals that he's the one who inflicted the X-shaped scar on Raven.
- The Stoic: Hardly ever utters a word, and never shows emotions.
- Visual Pun: One of the items you can equip him with in both Tekken 5 and 6 is a sniper rifle, to be exact, a dragunov.◊
- The Voiceless: He literally doesn't make a sound unless he's attacking or being hit (or, in the case of one of his Tekken 6 winning poses, humming).
- Tekken 6's Scenario Campaign reveals that he is perfectly capable of speech — he just doesn't do it very often (this was also revealed via Word of God prior to the release of 6 — the same source also claimed that, outside of battle, he enjoys singing). When he does, it's often short, to-the-point sentences, or single words. The players still don't actually hear him speak, though, as all of the in-level dialogue of Scenario Campaign is text-based.
- Wrestler in All of Us: His fighting style is combat sambo — a very aggressive mix of grappling, wrestling, and striking. Almost all of his throws involve either breaking bones or dishing out No Holds Barred Beatdowns.
Jinpachi Mishima - Japan
Jinpachi in Tag 2
My goal... My goal is to destroy all existence!
The former head and founder of the Mishima Zaibatsu, Jinpachi is betrayed by his son, Heihachi, when he takes over his company. He tries to get it back, but Heihachi imprisons him in an underground compound called Hon-Maru. Jinpachi is imprisoned there for years and died. That is, until an evil spirit resurrects him.
Jinpachi is released when an explosion from Hon-Maru frees him. He regains control of the Mishima Zaibatsu afterwards. However, the devil begins to take over his mind. Because of this, Jinpachi hosts the 5th Tournament to make one of the fighters defeat him and kill him.
Tropes associated with Jinpachi:
