Introduced in Tekken 6

    Eleonora "Leo" Kliesen - Germany
Leo in Tekken 7

Just relax. You can do it.

Fighting Style: Bajiquan

Appears in: 6/Bloodline Rebellion, Tag 2, Revolution, 7

Voiced by: Veronica Taylor (6), ??? (Tag 2)

The daughter of a world-famous spelunker and a G Corporation executive. Although her father disappeared during an expedition, she was determined to follow in his footsteps and become a spelunker, until receiving news of Emma Kliesen's murder.

The investigation was quickly called off, but Leo came to the conclusion that G Corporation's Kazuya Mishima was the one responsible; however, she was unable to do anything due to Kazuya's position. Noticing that he would be entering The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6, Leo enters as well, seeing this as the only chance to enact revenge.

Tag 2 reveals that Emma was, in fact, a scientist assigned to monitor Steve during his childhood—and the only one who treated him as a human being rather than as an experimental subject.

Tropes associated with Leo:
  • Action Girl: It takes one to be a capable spelunker.
  • Ambiguous Gender:
    • Thanks to her appearance, Leo's gender had been under discussion since Tekken 6 came out. Word of God says the character was made to be loved by fans regardless of gender. On August 19, 2011, Katsuhiro Harada, the director/producer of the series, officially stated that Leo is female and her real name is Eleonora.
    • In her debut game, Leo can equip male and female customization items (though on the other hand, you can't equip her with costumes that reveal the torso, both male and female), can be affected by all gender-specific throws, and is placed in the male section of the Tekken 6 art book. A few characters in the Scenario Campaign call her a boy, and the Tekken Comic outright refers to her as male all throughout (including by her own internal narration, indicating that the author either wasn't informed, or was leading readers off the trail). Some translations of Tag 2 even mistakenly refer to her as a boy.
  • Arch-Enemy: Sees Kazuya as this. Although in her Tekken Tag 2 ending, he's only a witness on her list, once Leo finds out her mother was a Mishima Zaibatsu worker who was a godmother to NT01 (known as Steve Fox), with the true murder of her mother remained unknown.
  • Battle Butler: Becomes one in place of Sebastian in the Tekken Comic. Leo's actual loyalty here is questionable, since it's made clear via narration that she plans on using this connection to the Rochefort family to become major in the oil industry, primarily as an aid towards avenging her mother. Once Rochefort Enterprises goes bankrupt, Leo promptly leaves Lili's service without a second thought (prompting a swift kick in the face from Lili along with a reminder of how jobless Leo was before they met). From here on, Leo sticks around for the rest of the story as a friend instead of servant.
  • Bifauxnen: Very much so. Justified in that she was designed to be a character that fans would like regardless of gender. Leo's Nintendo-themed outfit in the Wii U version of Tekken Tag 2 is Sheik, likely in reference to this. Because of this, in the Tekken Comic, Xiao briefly has a crush on Leo (until finding out how close her and Lili are).
  • Boyish Short Hair
  • Counter Attack: Has several.
  • Difficult but Awesome: The Tian Zhang Strike. Quick, reliable, powerful, and requiring 3 complex motions to pull off.
  • Disappeared Dad: Is believed to be the one who left the letter for Leo in her ending.
  • Expy: Not her per se, but her father seems like one of Indiana Jones, if her 6 Story prologue is anything to go by.
    • Her clothes are kinda similar to those of Rock Howard.
  • Tomboyish Name: Or rather, tomboyish nickname. Eleonora is decidedly female, but Leo is more commonly associated with boys.

    Zafina - Middle East (probably Egypt)
Zafina in Tag 2

Death becomes you.

Fighting Style: Ancient Eastern Assassination Form

Appears in: 6/Bloodline Rebellion, Tag 2

Voiced by: Lisle Wilkerson

Born to a clan of ancient spiritual warriors, Zafina has been raised from childhood to be a protector of an imperial temple. Due to her prowess in taking out intruders on one occasion, she was appointed to be the temple's sole assassin. In public, Zafina uses her powers as an astrologist but recently has only been able to see evil omens that grow worse by the day. Seeking to understand the meaning behind all of this, Zafina sought the advice of her guru. According to the guru's tale, two evil stars will shake the world when they come into contact and unite with the sealed ancient evil being protected by her group. This will cause The End of the World as We Know It. Considering this tale as the meaning behind her premonitions, Zafina travels east to try to impede the oncoming Armageddon.

    Miguel Caballero Rojo - Spain
Miguel in Tag 2

Make it worth my while.

Fighting Style: Untrained Brawling

Appears in: 6/Bloodline Rebellion, Tag 2, Revolution

Voiced by: Liam O'Brien (6, Tag 2 Battle Voice), Hector Garay (Tag 2, cutscenes)

A Spanish fighter with no discernible fighting style. Considered to be a Jerkass amongst his peers, but has a soft spot for his sister. When his sister announced that she's getting married, Miguel attempted to Murder the Hypotenuse, but backs down for the sake of her happiness...until the wedding day, whereupon the Mishima Zaibatsu bombarded the wedding, killing his sister and sending Miguel into a Roaring Rampage of Revenge. He then enters the tournament to beat down Jin, who ordered the atrocity.

Tropes associated with Miguel:
  • Badass Normal
  • Blood Knight
  • Carpet of Virility
  • Chained by Fashion: His TTT2 appearance features a lot of chains on his neck and right arm.
  • Brotherly Marriage Veto/My Sister Is Off-Limits!: At first, but declines.
  • Dashing Hispanic: A rare case in which his initial design in 6 was not received well, especially by native Spanish fans, due to his established personality clashing with the mariachi garb. In Tag 2 his costume was redesigned to evoke the more streetwise, manly look shown above, with exceptionally better results.
  • Fingerless Gloves
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: Miguel's fighting style? He hits you. Hard.
  • Ha Ha Ha Ha PUNCH: His one-hit knockout technique is definitely this. It helps that he can cancel into a block, considering how long he has to complete the move.
  • Hunk: Miguel has a perfect combination of handsome, rugged and manly. This guy doesn't have a girly bone in his entire body.
  • If You Kill Him, You Will Be Just Like Him: Serves as Irony in his Tag 2 ending. He was beating the crap out of some gang members, when he's about to deliver the final blow to the last thug. However, a girl (who may be said thug's girlfriend or sister) gives him the Death Glare. Miguel has flashbacks to his segment on the opening of Tekken 6. He realizes that he will become just like Jin if he beats the thug. Thus he lets him go and is kicking himself over it.
    • Though this particular example holds up pretty well compared to most, as the thugs were shown to attack him barehanded and one-on-one to boot. Killing someone who can't even stand simply for picking a fight would pretty much be going from antihero straight to villain.
  • It's Personal: To Jin.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold
  • La Résistance: And if you look carefully at his dialogue in the latter part of Scenario Campaign—specifically, his statements to Eddy, Nina, and Jin about avenging his fallen comrades—it certainly looks like there may have been an off-screen alliance of the Resistance and Lars's own renegade Tekkenshu unit (once Lars and Alisa finished stomping some sense into them that they needed better numbers to have a chance against Jin and Kazuya, anyway).
  • Meaningful Name: In English, his full name translates to "Michael the Red Knight".
  • Morality Chain: His sister. A slight subversion, as the hatred Miguel subdued towards his sister's fiance has now been transferred over to Jin.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Just look at the page image.
  • Not Good with People: According to the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Allegiance Chart. His Netsu power activates earlier if he is partnered with Kuma, Panda, or Roger Jr. and they take damage while on point.
  • One-Hit Kill: If he starts to laugh, interrupt him or run.
  • Rated M for Manly: Before his name was revealed, fans called him "Manly Man". Miguel has been frequently described as the alpha male in the series due to his big, towering figure and his oppressive aura of anger and power. Most of his customization options feature the theme of manliness, like muscle shirts, unzipped leather coats, and facial hair, and his outfits prominently feature his muscular and chiseled figure. Making use of his brutal strength and raw muscle-power, he brawls his way out of any fight.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: "This hatred I bear is for you, and you alone!" (Against Jin.)
  • Skyward Scream: After cradling his dead sister in his arms.
  • Troubled, but Cute
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Has absolutely no fighting finesse or legitimate training, but can knock you out with a single punch.

    Robert "Bob" Richards - United States
Bob in Tag 2
Slim Bob in Tag 2

Speed and weight!

Fighting Style: Freestyle Karate

Appears in: 6/Bloodline Rebellion, Tag 2, Revolution

Voiced by: Patrick Seitz

He has practiced martial arts all his life, and was viewed as a genius. His biggest drawback was his small size; he kept repeatedly getting beaten by much larger opponents. So one day, he disappeared from the public eye and put himself through a brutal training regiment that focused on increasing his mass while maintaining his speed and power. When he made his comeback, his boyish good looks were gone, but that didn't bother him very much. He enters the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 to put his new stature and fighting skills to the test.

In his Tekken 6 ending, Bob wins the tournament but ends up losing all the weight he gained due to the combined workout from the tournament and the various publicity events he ended up going to. This version, known as Slim Bob, was recently unlocked as a time-release DLC character for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on October 9, 2012. Slim Bob is much faster than regular Bob, but deals less damage and some of his moves that he could do while fat leave him at a disadvantage now due to causing him pain.

Tropes associated with Bob:
  • Acrofatic: He professes that "speed and weight" are his keys to victory. Proven true when you play as Slim Bob, who can still hit pretty well but has trouble doing certain moves that his fatter self had no trouble with (such as using his gut as a weapon, something Bob does effortlessly but Slim Bob falls down when attempting).
  • Alliterative Name: Robert Richards.
  • Big "NO!": In his Tekken 6 ending, after realizing that he lost all the weight he intentionally gained.
  • Bishōnen: Slim Bob, though he doesn't really care for it.
  • Blood Knight: In his introduction in the Tekken 6 opening sequence, he's introduced as a guy who refuses to be intimidated by bank robbers with guns — he dodges a bullet and kicks all their asses with ease.
  • Bounty Hunter: In some of his backstory and in the manga.
  • Catchphrase: "Speed and weight!" Originally just one of his various win quotes in 6, but becomes his crime-fighting persona's catchphrase in his Tag 2 endings.
  • Chick Magnet: He was apparently this before intentionally making himself fat, and his female fans were none to happy about the changes. However, he doesn't appear to have lost a step, and according to his Tekken 6 ending, the fans eventually warm up to the new him because of his sheer badassery.
    • Becomes this with his ending (Slim Bob or not) in TTT2.
  • Child Prodigy: In his youth, he was heralded as a genius in fighting and guaranteed to be one of the greatest of all time. He, however, was obsessed with the fact that he could not defeat larger opponents.
  • Clipped Wing Angel: Slim Bob is a weaker version of his usual self, although it LOOKS less goofy. Without his weight, Bob doesn't pack the same power or momentum.
  • Eagleland: An American fighter through and through. Thankfully, he's not that overtly stereotypical.
  • Gameplay and Story Integration: He considers his fat body to be the absolute perfect build for his fighting career. He's also top tier.
  • Kevlard: The very reason why he trained so hard was to get this trope's advantage, so he can take down bigger opponents easily. His large gut makes him a lot more powerful and resistant.
  • Lightning Bruiser: As his mantra goes, "Speed and weight!" This is part of the reason he was the sole occupant of the highest character tier in Tekken 6 pre-Bloodline Rebellion.
  • Nice Guy: Especially shown in his Street Fighter X Tekken ending.
  • Not Wearing Tights: In Campaign Mode he's fighting crime in the backstreets. As of his Tag 2 endings, he now does wear tights.
  • Shoryuken: Has a Shinryuken variant of this. It makes for a very effective launcher.
  • Training from Hell: Self-inflicted.

    NANCY-MI847J - Japan

Appears in: 6/Bloodline Rebellion (only playable in one Scenario Campaign mission)

A mecha created by the Mishima Zaibatsu as their own counter-measure against the Jack series, with an individual mission of protecting Jin Kazama. It was eventually destroyed by Raven, as revealed in the Scenario Campaign.

It had a cameo appearance in the background of the "Urban War Zone" stage of Street Fighter X Tekken.

Tropes associated with NANCY:
  • Bonus Boss: A quite deadly one, at that.
  • Damage-Sponge Boss: Its health meter is ten times longer than an average fighter's.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams
  • Fun with Acronyms: MI is Mishima Industries, 847 is the number of people on their network, and J is Japan.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Not that robots have a gender, mind you, but a behemoth of a mech — one that resembles a model of Metal Gear — being named "Nancy" is darkly hilarious.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: Inverted. You still advance if you lose against NANCY, but defeating it gives you an achievement/trophy and a healthy bonus to your score. (Sadly, losing to it counts against your Arcade win-lose percentage.)
  • Killed Off for Real: By Raven, for now, as the Zaibatsu has shown no inclination of revisiting construction of more NANCY-type units so far.
  • Macross Missile Massacre
  • Mighty Glacier: Slow as can be, but NANCY hits and hits hard. If anything about SFxT is canon, one NANCY can go toe-to-toe with a tank.
  • Promoted to Playable: For exactly one mission in Scenario Campaign. Or if you hack the PSP version of 6.
  • Ring Out: It can cause them for you in its stage, which takes place on easily destroyed glass floors.

Introduced in Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion

    Lars Alexandersson - Sweden
Lars in Tekken 7

You think you can stop me?

Fighting Style: Tekken Force CQC Self-Defense

Appears in: 6: Bloodline Rebellion, Tag 2, Revolution, 7

Voiced by: Junichi Suwabe

One of the leaders of a squad in the Tekken Force. A good natured man who values his squad members' well being as well as being a formidable fighter, even questioning the righteousness of Jin's current actions. During an assault on Dr. Bosconovitch's lab, an incident caused Lars to lose his memory (which he quickly regained) and he sets out on a mission to find out who he really is, accompanied with a Robot Girl named Alisa. Turns out, he's Heihachi's bastard son, which gave him the power of the Mishima Bloodline.

After regaining his memory, he heads off to confront Jin along with his squad, who have splintered off from the Tekken Force to become a resistance faction. His second-in-command, Tougou, is killed as he confronts Kazuya, the head of G Corporation, for answers. He finally makes it to the Mishima Zaibatsu HQ and battles Jin, but Jin reveals the true purpose of Alisa's creation: to serve him. He disables Alisa's Safe Mode, and forces Lars to fight her while he retreats and makes his way to Azazel's temple. He joins forces with Raven to continue the search for Jin.

In the end, he makes it to the temple and discovers Kazuya there. After defeating him, Kazuya concedes and retreats, leaving him with the knowledge that betrayal is the destiny of all those who bear the blood of a Mishima. Lars continues into the chamber and defeats Azazel, triggering the temple to begin collapsing. As he and Raven escape, they notice Jin retreating and rush ahead to stop him, but Lars is forced to go through Alisa, critically damaging her and forcing her to shut down. After Jin provokes him, the two engage in one last battle, which Lars wins. Jin reveals the truth, and sacrifices himself to permanently destroy Azazel as Lars watches. He then goes to Violet Systems and has Lee repair Alisa.

    Alisa Bosconovitch - Russia
Alisa in Tekken 7

I'm Alisa. Nice to meet you.

Fighting Style: Mishima Zaibatsu programming

Appears in: 6: Bloodline Rebellion, Tag 2, Revolution, 7

Voiced by: Yuki Matsuoka, Cristina Valenzuela (EN, Blood Vengeance)

A Robot Girl created in the image of Dr. Bosconovitch's daughter. She just woke up and the first person she saw was Lars, thus she ended up accompanying him in his quest. She's not really sure of her purpose, however it turns out that her main objective is to protect Jin Kazama, which he used immediately to his advantage, by spying and later, betraying Lars. She's knocked out and was shut down by Lars, and after everything is over, Lars sent her to Lee so she could be restored.

Final Boss

    Azazel - Egypt
Azazel in Tekken 6

Fighting Style: Unknown

Appears in: 6/Bloodline Rebellion (unplayable boss)

Voiced by: Richard Epcar (Scenario Campaign only)

A large, Egyptian god of some kind; referred to fully as "Azazel The Rectifier". Scenario Campaign seems to imply that Azazel is the manifestation of chaos and strife, given a physical form because of the war that Jin Kazama has blanketed the world in. It wears an Egyptian headdress and stands much taller than any playable fighter in the game. Zafina's mission is to stop this beast from being awakened. Jin's ultimate goal is to defeat the monster in mortal combat and rid himself and the world of the Devil Gene, which he seemingly accomplishes at the end of the Scenario Campaign.

Tropes associated with Azazel:
  • The Beastmaster: One of its attacks involves sending a swarm of beetles to ravage you. One of his most annoying throws involves making the beetles juggle you up to his height, after which he blasts you with a laser.
  • Crystal Dragon Jesus: A demon enchained by an ancient religion, whose release means the end of the world and who looks like a Crystal Dragon.
  • A God Am I
  • Diabolus ex Nihilo: Even though a whole game is dedicated to him. He is never mentioned before the game he debuted in and just kind of appears surprisingly as the source of the Devil Gene. And he promptly gets offed by Jin just a few minutes after he's fully awakened. He isn't even acknowledged in Tekken 7, which introduces Kazumi Mishima, the first known person to inherit the Devil Gene and be able to pass it to Kazuya and Jin. Exactly how Azazel and Kazumi are related is unknown.
  • Eye Beams: Has the same effect as Devil Jin's.
  • Greater Scope Villain: He is responsible for bestowing the Devil Gene upon the Mishima family (at least those who are descended from Kazumi), and his imminent return is the reason why Jin made a Face–Heel Turn in Tekken 6. However, he still has no direct impact on the main conflict of the story, which is the feud between the various Mishima men (Heihachi, Kazuya, Jin, and Lars).
  • Load-Bearing Boss: Several endings show his temple crumbling after he is defeated.
  • Macguffin: Not significantly plot-relevant, but his core appears to be of varying importance to several characters. Baek and Wang see it as a weak spot (hitting which wins them the fight, but somehow costs them their lives in the process); Dragunov and Raven fight over its possession; Kazuya, Devil Jin, Ganryu, Yoshimitsu and Hwoarang witness it as a source of the Devil's power.
  • Meaningful Name: Named after a demon.
  • No Sell: Throws don't work on him, for obvious reasons. And certain moves that allow you to bypass an enemy (like Xiaoyu's high jump) don't work either. Plus, you can't hit him if he is moving to hit you first.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Roar Before Beating: Does this before a round is about to start (during the "Ready? Fight!" phase).
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Until Jin and Kazuya began their confrontation.
  • SNK Boss: See the trope page for more details.
    • True Final Boss: While Jin is the most prominent villain of 6, Azazel is the real threat to the world and Jin knows this. His real goal is to awaken Azazel, defeat it, and kill himself in order to finally rid the world of the Devil Gene.
    • Bonus Boss: His gold version in Arcade and Arena modes. Hard to get to, and even harder to fight. However, if you do drop straight Perfects! on him, you can net 1,000,000 Gold.
  • Spin Attack
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Not by himself, but he's said to be the source of the Devil Gene. Several endings (those of Ganryu, Yoshimitsu, and Hwoarang) involve his core forcing a transformation in the winner (only Hwoarang is determined enough to resist it). In Devil Jin's case, it works in reverse, extracting the Devil from Jin.
  • Telepathy: Raven notes that he speaks telepathically.
  • The Voiceless: But not in Scenario Campaign (though most "speech" in this mode is just text).
  • Villain Teleportation: Similar to True Ogre, Azazel can go to standing position from being knocked down by teleporting to the air, stomping his enemies if they aren't lucky to block. He also does this whenever a round is about to start, accompanied with a Roar Before Beating.
