Introduced in Tekken 6
Eleonor "Leo" Kliesen - Germany
Leo in 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 Eleonor.
- In her debut game, Leo can equip male and female customization items, 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).
- Arch-Enemy: Sees Kazuya as this.
- 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.
- Leo's Nintendo-themed outfit in the Wii U version of Tekken Tag 2 is Sheik, likely in reference to 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.
- Fingerless Gloves
- Idiot Hair
- Named After Somebody Famous: She shares her first name with German folk heroine Eleonore Prochaska, famous for disguising herself as a man to fight against France in the Napoleonic Wars.
- Only Known by Their Nickname
- Patronymic: Fanon believes that Leo's last name is Kliesen, taken from the character's mother Emma Kliesen.
- Punch! Punch! Punch! Uh Oh...: Has a moment like this in the Tekken Comic when forced to fight Panda. Leo ultimately resolves to go out fighting hard enough to at least leave a scratch on the animal, only to get casually smacked aside.
- Scarf of Asskicking
- Tomboyish Name
- Too Many Belts
- You Killed My Mother
Zafina - Arabia
Zafina in Tag 2
Only I have the power to change fate.
Voiced by: Lisle Wilkerson (6)
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.
- Arachnid Appearance and Attire: One of her stances is named Tarantula. She hunches over on her toes and knuckles, her head facing downward.
- Ars Goetia: In the original Japanese naming for her moves, a pretty fair number of them are named for various of the described demons.
- Combat Stilettos
- Confusion Fu: Almost as confusing as Lei. In her case, her fighting style seems to be designed such that you'd barely see where she's striking, and with what limb, until it's too late.
- Dual Wielding: Like Raven, she also has two short knives which only turn up in cutscenes.
- Foreign Fanservice: Though it's not clear just how foreign.
- Heroic Sacrifice: In her and Devil Jin's arena endings, she clearly lets herself be swallowed up along with Azazel's bastion after his defeat. Presumably, it was necessary for one of her order to stay in there to properly maintain the newest seal on Azazel. Perhaps an oblique form of Sealed Evil in a Duel?
- Hot Astrologist: As a day job.
- Lady of War
- Parts Unknown: Word of God says she's Middle-Eastern, but doesn't get any more specific than that.
- Prim and Proper Bun: Her hair is in this style, though it's worn on one side of her head instead of the normal location on the back, giving the appearance of Odango Hair when she is viewed in profile from that side.
- Promoted to Love Interest: In the Tekken Manga she becomes this to Lars.
- Sexy Backless Outfit
- Stance System: Her picture in Tag 2 (see above) shows one of her stances, Scarecrow. This and a few other stances make her so utterly confusing to most opponents.
- Vagueness Is Coming: Her TTT2 ending.
Miguel Caballero Rojo - Spain
Miguel in Tag 2
Make it worth my while.
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: At first, but declines.
- Dashing Hispanic: After 6 however, the developers decided to go for a less stereotypically Spanish look for Miguel.
- 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.
- 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 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.
- 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.
- 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
Let's make this a good fight!
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.
- 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
- 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.
- Eagleland: A Type 1, but thankfully, he's not that overtly stereotypical.
- Lightning Bruiser: Fat Bob.
- 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-MI 847 J - Japan
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: 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 so far of revisiting construction of more NANCY-type units.
- 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 Tag 2
No need to go easy on me.
One of the leaders of a squad in the Tekken Force. A good natured man who values his men's well being as well as being a formidable fighter, even questioning the righteousness of Jin's current actions. During an assault to Bosconovitch's lab, an incident caused Lars to lose his memory (which he quickly regained) and he sets out on a quest 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.
- Action Hero
- All Just a Dream: His ending in TTT2, the "Mishima Family Reunion". Possibly invoked with Dr. Bosconovitch's ending, but canon states that he is a Mishima, and he hates it.
- Animal Motifs: Lion.
- Anime Accent Absence
- Anime Hair: Yep, he's a Mishima all right.
- Badass Cape
- Bring My Red Jacket
- But Not Too Foreign: Specifically, he's half-Swedish, half-Japanese.
- The Captain: The leader of the resistance group within the Tekken Force.
- Dodge the Bullet: His Tekken 6 Scenario Campaign introduction has him dodging a rocket — actually deflecting it mid-flight by pushing it aside with his hand!
- Dynamic Entry: One of his setups is named this.
- A Father to His Men
- Flash Step
- Guest Fighter: Lars is a playable character◊ in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2. Specifically, he appears in his bonus outfit, the very same one that was designed by Masashi Kishimoto.
- Gameplay-Guided Amnesia: From Alisa's awakening until his encounter with his father.
- The Hero: Seems to be taking over this role in Tekken 6, what with Jin Kazama going on a rampage.
- Heroic Bastard: Like uncle, like nephew?
- Highly-Visible Ninja: If the cape and his funky hairstyle are anything to go by.
- Law of Chromatic Superiority
- Luke, You Are My Father: He's Heihachi's bastard son.
- Neck Lift/Neck Snap: His Magnetic Knee can have him hold enemies up like this with lightning surging through his arm before crushing their throat. But only on counter-hit. His back-facing throw (known as Swift Silence) has him bend the opponent's neck back before pulling his hands off to let them fall to the ground.
- Papa Wolf: Deeply cares for his subordinates, to the point where he sometimes comes close to forgetting the objective when they're in peril.
- The Protagonist: For Tekken 6 anyway, to replace the former protagonist Jin Kazama, who then became The Antagonist instead. Other games like Street Fighter X Tekken and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 have disregarded this.
- Rebel Leader: He and his squad are Tekken Force defectors.
- Star-Crossed Lovers: With Alisa in Scenario Campaign. She's a robot controlled by the Mishima Zaibatsu, so naturally Jin mocks him for having feelings for her.
- White Sheep: Seriously; just from his personality alone, you'd hardly believe that he's a Mishima.
- You Can't Fight Fate: Almost said word-for-word by Kazuya. Sooner or later, he'll be as evil as the rest of the Mishimas. Lars promptly declares to Screw Destiny.
Alisa Bosconovitch - Russia
Alisa in Tag 2
I'm Alisa. Now you must die.
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
- And I Must Scream: She is quite aware of her actions while her Safe Mode was disabled.
- Artificial Human
- Badass Adorable
- Beehive Barrier: Her new "Battle Helmet" custom head item in Tag 2 lets her do this.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: With her Safe Mode disabled...
- Chainsaw Good: She has one in each arm.
- Cute Bruiser: Don't let her childish appearance fool you, as she's basically a female Astro Boy.
- Cute Clumsy Girl: Her special win-pose with Lars involves tripping to the ground and having Lars pick her up. And her win-pose with Dragunov has her head tilting to the side and falling off, much to Dragunov's bewilderment.
- Dead Guy Junior: She's given the name of Dr. Bosconovitch's deceased daughter.
- Detachment Combat: Uses her arms as missiles, and her head as either a blunt instrument or a trick bomb.
- Dissonant Serenity: "Alisa desu. Shin de kudasai." Translated into English, it's her saying (very politely) "I'm Alisa. Now you must die."
- Do Androids Dream?: Her journal entries in 6's Scenario Campaign depict her budding curiosity regarding human emotions and reactions.
- Expy: She has traits matching Astro Boy.
- Fashionable Asymmetry: Not as overtly asymmetric as most examples of this trope, but still evident to a certain extent. Specifically, her stockings and skirt are not the same length on either of her legs.
- Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Her dress is mainly purple.
- Groin Attack: Implied to deliver one to Lee after he gets a bit too touchy-feely with her in 6.
- Half the Woman She Used to Be: In Blood Vengeance, although she gets repaired.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Xiaoyu, as of Blood Vengeance and TTT2.
- Just a Machine: Only Lars, Xiaoyu, and of course her creator Dr. Bosconovitch beg to differ.
- Losing Your Head: Usually handing her head over or using it to beat opponents down. Or, in one of her new moves in Tag 2, kicking it towards her opponent. The move is somewhat appropriately called "Logic Bomb".
- Counter Attack: One move has her intentionally lean toward her opponent; if they fall for it, her head falls off harmlessly and she immediately retaliates with a low punch before regenerating a new head.
- The Mole: Of Jin in the Scenario Campaign.
- Pink Means Feminine: Her dress has heavy amounts of pink.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: It's the sign that she's no longer in Safe Mode. Meaning that if Jin tells her to do something—for example, kill Lars—she'll do it with little to no remorse or hesitation.
- Replacement Goldfish: For Dr. Bosconovitch's deceased daughter.
- Ret Canon: While Tag 2 is non-canon, her hanging around with Xiaoyu (and Panda and Miharu) is taken from Blood Vengeance, as she spent most of the time in canon (6) with Lars (and she still has her friendship bond with Lars in Tag 2).
- Robot Girl/Ridiculously Human Robot
- Rocket Punch: Or, in Tekken: Blood Vengeance, "Skyrocket Super Punch!"
- Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With Xiaoyu.
- Sidekick: In Scenario Campaign to Lars. Well, before her Face-Heel Turn anyway.
- Superpowered Evil Side: Her Safe Mode being disabled counts as this.
- True Blue Femininity: Her outfit has blue jewels and blue flowers.
- Unexplained Recovery: If you complete all of the Scenario Campaign missions (including the secret ones), you'll unlock additional journal entries which end with Alisa being restored with her memory intact.
- You Gotta Have Pink Hair
- Zettai Ryouiki: Interestingly, her leg stockings are of two different lengths on each leg.
Azazel - Egypt
Azazel in Tekken 6
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.
- Bigger Bad: He is responsible for bestowing the Devil Gene upon the Mishima Family, 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).
- Crystal Dragon Jesus: A demon enchained by an ancient religion, whose release means the end of the world and who looks very much like a Crystal Dragon.
- A God Am I
- Load-Bearing Boss
- 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 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
- Sealed Evil in a Can
- 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.
