Asuka Kazama in Tekken 7

You're gonna get hurt!

Fighting Style: Kazama-style Martial Arts

Appears in: 5/Dark Resurrection, 6/Bloodline Rebellion, Tag 2, Revolution, 7/Fated Retribution

Voiced by: Ryoko Shiraishi

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:

    Feng Wei - China

Feng Wei in Tekken 7

HMPH! Come on!

Fighting Style: "Shinken" (God Fist Form)

Appears in: 5/Dark Resurrection, 6/Bloodline Rebellion, Tag 2, Revolution, 7/Fated Retribution

Voiced by: Hiroshi Tsuchida (Battle Voice), Chuan Yin Li (Cutscenes, Intro Pose)

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
  • 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.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: His left pant leg is green with golden designs, while the right one is a plain red.
  • 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.
  • Scarf of Asskicking: Wears one in 7: Fated Retribution.
  • Unusual Eyebrows: They split at the outer edges.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene

    Raven - ??? 

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/542px-Raven_TTT2_CG_1960.png
Raven in Tag 2

I cannot allow you to interfere.

Fighting Style: Ninjitsu

Appears in: 5/Dark Resurrection, 6/Bloodline Rebellion, Tag 2

Voiced by: Jack Merluzzi (5), DC Douglas (6-current)

A spec-ops agent sent to investigate the Mishima Zaibatsu. He is the first to report Heihachi Mishima's apparent death (as shown in the opening movie of Tekken 5). Everything about him is shrouded in mystery, except that he knows Ninjitsu and that he is a personal Rival of Dragunov (the latter is the one who gave that "X" scar on his face).

He has an expanded role in Tekken 6, specifically, in the Scenario Campaign. After appearing as an enemy to Lars and Alisa, he becomes Lars' steadfast companion following Alisa's Face–Heel Turn. At the end of the mode, Raven leads the unearthing of the collapsed Azazel's Temple, and, to his dismay, becomes the first to learn about Jin's survival with his Devil Gene intact.

While Raven himself does not appear in Tekken 7, he is succeeded by his superior officer, the Master Raven.

Tropes associated with Raven:


Introduced in Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection

    Armor King II - ??? 

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/457px-Armor_King_TTT2_CG_2917.png
Armor King II in Tag 2

(more jaguar noises)

Fighting Style: Wrestling/Puroresu (Japanese pro wrestling)

Appears in: 5: Dark Resurrection, 6/Bloodline Rebellion, Tag 2, Revolution

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.
    • Artifact Title: Now that he can be customized, unlike his Legacy Character forerunner, you can remove his armor pieces if you want and his second default outfit doesn't even come with any.
  • Breath Weapon: Sometimes green mist, sometimes fire. Nobody knows how he pulls this off while still wearing his mask.
  • Cool Mask
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: In 5, after King II and Marduk's battle, Armor King II mysteriously appears before Marduk and beats the ever loving shit out of him. His ending doesn't make it any better as he gives King II a spinning piledriver, even though King II was only asking of who he was.
  • 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.
  • Legacy Character: He is this to Armor King I.
  • 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.
  • Taking Up the Mantle: After his brother is killed at the hands of Marduk, he takes up the mask and becomes the new Armor King from 5 onwwards.
  • The Voiceless
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: His P2 costume. Which kind of makes his title an artifact.
  • You Killed My Brother: To Marduk. And he's not going to just let him off easily.

    Emilie "Lili" de Rochefort - Monaco

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cl_uffrusaaq0hpjpg_orig.png
Lili in Tekken 7: Fated Retribution

My battles... are for my father.

Fighting Style: "Street Fighting"

Appears in: 5: Dark Resurrection, 6/Bloodline Rebellion, Tag 2, Revolution, 7/Fated Retribution

Voiced by: Joy Jacobson (5-6), Rachel Hirschfield (6, Scenario Campaign), Laura Blanc (Tag 2-current), Rina Sato (Queen's Blade Spiral Chaos)

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:
  • Alternate Company Equivalent: Switch Monaco with Japan and you have Karin Kanzuki.
  • 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.
  • Ass Kicks You: Her Headress item move ends with a butt bump.
  • 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 Papa: 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 onward.
  • Floral Theme Naming: As befitting someone nicknamed Lili, the majority of her moves are named after flowers.
  • 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, Panda, and Asuka's endings in 6.
  • Lady of War: In the making.
  • Longing Look: To Ganryu in both Dark Resurrection and TTT2.
  • Magic Skirt: It seems to be solidly in place all the time, even defying gravity when she does a handstand. However, it still doesn't prevent all Panty Shots.
  • 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.
  • Ojou
  • Panty Shot: Plenty. Occurs easily enough, given her very short dress and her tendency to perform very high kicks...
  • Purple Is Powerful: Her color motif in her 7: Fated Retribution outfit.
  • Rebellious Princess: Goes against her father's will to not fight, and all...
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: She's the blue to Asuka's red; making the colors of their outfits somewhat ironic (Lili's neck ribbon is red while Asuka's crop tank top is blue).
  • 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. Though she more of an Unknown Rival.
  • 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" (or 5'8" if you go by the latest game, which would have her tie with several other females). 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.
  • Unknown Rival: To Asuka who really doesn't care about her until she pisses her off.
  • 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."
  • Wearing a Flag on Your Head: As can be seen from the Monégasque flag tagged onto her entry above, Lili's whole outfit is themed according to the red and white of the Drapeau de Monaco.
  • Woman in White

    Sergei Dragunov - Russia 

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/russia_8183.png
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dragunov_t7fr.jpg
Dragunov in Tekken 7: Fated Retribution

Fighting Style: Combat Sambo

Appears in: 5: Dark Resurrection, 6/Bloodline Rebellion, Tag 2, Revolution, 7/Fated Retribution

"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:

  • Badass: He squares off with Devil Jin without flinching in Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection and when he wins he casually drags him off by the horn as if he were a bag of trash.
    • Badass Longcoat: Puts on one for his new outfit in Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, along with a beret.
  • 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 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.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: His Fated Retribution outfit is probably the most formal of his yet.
  • The Stoic: Hardly ever utters a word, and never shows emotions.
    • Not So Stoic: His new Rage Art in Fated Retribution shows him with an uncharacteristic and terrifying expression of unbridled fury before hammering his kneeling opponent's head into the floor.
  • 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 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.


Final Boss

    Jinpachi Mishima - Japan 

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/japan_4602.png
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/446px-Jinpachi_Mishima_TTT2_CG_296.png
Jinpachi in Tag 2

My goal... My goal is to destroy all existence!

Fighting Style: Mishima-style Fighting Karate with supernatural powers

Appears in: 5/Dark Resurrection (unplayable boss), Tag 2, Revolution (unplayable boss)

Voiced by: Chikao Ohtsuka

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:
  • Ambiguously Brown: We know he's Japanese, but he's quite tan.
  • Anti-Villain: Just about the full extent of his "villainy" is that he's being possessed by some evil spirit. Otherwise, Jinpachi is basically a good, noble, nice grandpa who is unfortunately saddled with screwed up descendants.
  • Back from the Dead: Resurrected by an evil spirit after Hon-Maru is destroyed by the explosion which fails to kill Heihachi in 5.
  • Badass Beard: In place of the trademark spiked Mishima hair, his spikes are on his beard!
  • Badass Grandpa: One of the oldest human characters in the series (though he does have the cheat card of being kept alive by an evil spirit).
  • Badass Mustache
  • Bald of Awesome: At first glance. However, not only is his beard ridiculously long, he actually has a ponytail on the back of his head.
  • Battle Aura: A dark one or a fiery one, depending on the game.
  • Belly Mouth: Which spits fireballs. It's not present in his human form, which makes you wonder where he spits that fireball from in that form.
  • Big Bad: Of Tekken 5. Not of his own volition though.
  • Body Horror: His transformation into his Devil Form.
  • Bonus Feature Failure: His first stint as a playable character in the PS3 version of Dark Resurrection involves being made extremely dumbed-down, having so few of moves (only around 50, when regular characters have at least 70, and that overpowered fireball only deals half the damage than it usually is), and well, being available only in offline single-player modes, which just kills off interest considering the game, at least later on, is made to be a online multiplayer. Plus, he can't be customized. He has since gained better treatment, see Promoted to Playable below.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: First mentioned in a grave Wang visited in his Tekken 2 ending. It's the first time that that game sowed the seeds for a future Final Boss (the second one would be Kazumi).
  • Death Seeker: He wants a powerful fighter to kill him before he is fully taken over by the spirit.
  • Fighting from the Inside: Not too successful, but he does manage to leave a few clues here and there.
  • Final Boss: Of Tekken 5 and its update. Teams up with Heihachi to make up the first round of three consecutive boss battles in Tag Tournament 2.
  • Flight: Introduced as a battle stance in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Though it's not like Yoshimitsu's as it quickly wears down if you don't do anything in the meantime.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Wang.
  • Honest Corporate Executive: Unlike his son and grandson.
  • Incendiary Exponent: Not just with the fireballs he launches; some of his other attacks set the opponent on fire as well.
  • Killed Off for Real: Well, he's actually a dead man walking (literally), but the prologue of Tekken 6 details that Jin manages to beat the shit (and subsequently kill) out of him (with his blessing, of course).
  • My Name is Jinpachi Mishima: How he introduces himself to the players upon finally reaching him.
  • Non Standard Game Over/The Bad Guy Wins: While not playable in 5, he actually does have an ending — well, sort of. If you don't continue after being defeated by him, a short scene plays where he evolves even further, and a brief note appears on the screen summarizing the eventual destruction he caused.
  • Offing the Offspring: He kills Heihachi in his TTT2 ending and tries to do this to him in Tekken 5.
  • One-Winged Angel: From his human form to a more demonic one, with spikes and a Belly Mouth.
  • Out of the Inferno: In the Tekken 5 intro, and again in his TTT2 ending.
  • Pet the Dog: Genuinely loves his grandson and treated him well when Kazuya was young, making him too soft by Heihachi's standards. In TTT2, you can see legitimate sadness in his eyes when you put him on point with Kazuya in his fight intro. They also have a special combo as partners.
  • Promoted to Playable: He is made into a full playable character in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. A far cry from the PS3 version of DR, this time he has a full moveset of a regular character and thus necessitates for a slew of new moves and stances to be added to his disposal, including Flight, Villain Teleportation, and so on. His stun attack is gone and his fireball only does about 15% damage, but then, they have to, or he would be the most overpowered character in the game. Plus, he can be customized. Despite being toned down and balanced, he is still a very strong character, as tier lists place him in the upper echelons, but not quite at the level of his descendants, who are at the very top.
  • Purple Is Powerful: His Battle Aura.
  • Retcon: The force possessing Jinpachi was referred to as the devil gene in both Tekken 5 and the Tekken 6 art book.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Imprisoned under Hon-Maru until its destruction at the beginning of 5, when he was sealed under Hon-Maru he was a Sealed Good in a Can, only becoming evil after he died and was resurrected by an evil spirit.
  • SNK Boss: In 5, beginning this tradition in the series. See the trope page for more details.
  • Spikes of Villainy: His demon forms.
  • Suicide by Cop: What he hopes for in Tekken 5.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Courtesy of an evil spirit — not the Devil Gene, as most players believe. Word of God says the Devil Gene actually originated with Kazuya's mother. This counts as a deliberate retcon though as Word of God further clarified that Tekken 5 was written with the intention it being the Devil Gene.
  • Tears of Blood: In his ending (and a Downer Ending at that), Jinpachi is saddened that no one could kill him, thus making his efforts in vain. The devil then completely takes over his body and forces him to transform again before presumably flying away to destroy all of existence.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With his son in Tag 2!
    "Why do I have to be paired with up with you?"
  • Tragic Villain: His main purpose for initiating the 5th King of Iron Fist Tournament is to see if anyone is powerful enough to defeat him and stop the evil in him from destroying the world.
  • Villain Teleportation: More like Anti-Villain, but he has the ability to move forward and backward faster with this. It's turned into a stance in Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
  • Voice Changeling: In Tekken 5, he has a normal voice (in normal mode, obviously), but reverts to a dual voice in Devil mode. Which doesn't explain why he has a dual voice in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 even though Jinpachi is not in Devil mode (aside from his ending).
  • Walking Shirtless Scene
  • White Sheep: Demonic Possession aside, he is this to the Mishima family.
  • Wreathed in Flames: His Dark Resurrection demon form.
