!''Death by Degrees'' NPC

[[folder:Alan Smithee]]

-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/CrispinFreeman

->A sneaker sent by the CIA and [=MI6=] alongside John Doe to infiltrate the Kometa cruise ship Amphitrite. When John gets killed by Edgar Grant, he has to left the rest of the job to Nina, although he continues to give her clues while he goes off somewhere to gather intelligence. [[spoiler: In actuality, he ''is'' Edgar Grant, one of the Kometa executives.]]


Tropes associated with Alan:

* ApologeticAttacker: [[spoiler: Despite his agenda, he seems to develop some sort of affection for Nina, as he regrets having to kill Nina in order to dispose all witnesses.]]
* BigBadFriend: [[spoiler: In hindsight, Nina wastes a lot of time trying to locate Edgar Grant when he is communicating or even tailing her around for quite a few times.]]
* DragonWithAnAgenda: [[spoiler: He is technically the Dragon for Lana Lei. However, he secretly wants to kill everyone else so he can claim credit ''and'' dispose any bad marks. Also, Lana kills him before he has a chance to fight Nina.]]
* EscortMission: If Alan is around, you have to ensure that he survives his ordeal until he leaves. That includes sniper missions. Fortunately, he is more than capable to defend himself until you rescue him.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Really, the fact that he somehow manages to escape multiple instances of disasters wrought upon by Kometa (like avoiding the Type J robots or surviving the helicopter crash) should clue you in that [[spoiler: he is helped by them]].
* IntergenerationalFriendship: Possibly. ''DBD'' seems to take place shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union and before or during the events of ''T2'', where Nina is chronologically and physically in her twenties, i.e. she isn't subjected to cryosleep yet. Alan, meanwhile is 40.
* LeaveNoWitnesses: [[spoiler: He wants to kill all witnesses of the development of Salacia, including all executives, scientists, developers, and assassins who discover it so there would be no one to implicate him.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler: Presents himself as Nina's handler, when he is really one of the BigBad.]]
* MeaningfulName: "Alan Smithee" is the pseudonym used by film directors in the second half of the 20th century who want to distance themselves from their projects. [[spoiler: Edgar Grant wants to sweep all evidences of his responsibility in Kometa so he can walk out of the carnage as an innocent man.]]
* MissionControl: Acts one to Nina, providing her with information and maps. Sometimes you wonder where he is when Nina isn't around. [[spoiler: Lounging in the executive room, perhaps?]]
* TheMole: [[spoiler: His real name is Edgar Grant, one of the executives of Kometa.]]
* TheUnfought: [[spoiler: Before Nina even has a chance to hit him, Lana recovers and shoots him dead.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: Very much so.


[[folder:Lana Lei]]

-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/KariWahlgren

->The head of Kometa, an organization made from remnants of the former Communist governments wanting harness the power of methane hydrate that enables them to detonate ships from a distance.


Tropes associated with Lana:

* AnnoyingLaugh: Has an ear-grating, shrieking laugh that seems to go on forever. And she does this ''[[FateWorseThanDeath three times]]'' throughout the game.
* AxCrazy: [[spoiler: After Bryce dies and Edgar almost kills her, she immediately races to activate Salacia to destroy the East Coast.]]
* BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork: [[spoiler: Nina does not have to murder her BigBadFriend. Lana kills Edgar for her.]]
* BigBad: As leader of Kometa.
* CombatHandFan: She utilizes her razor-sharp fans as a sort of boomerang.
* DragonLady: Aggressive, check. Untrustworthy, check. Mysterious, check. Although unlike the typical vamp, she only has one love in her life.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: [[spoiler: She loves dear Bryce so much she puts his preserved corpse on her bed, adorned by roses.]]
* LaughingMad: When you consider that she's not too sane.
* MasterOfIllusion: She takes Nina to an alternate dimension during all their battles.
* MindRape: Able to bring out her target's worst memories. In the case of Nina, she brings up the latter's memories of her father being killed.
* OneSteveLimit: No relation to Lei Wulong.
* PrecisionGuidedBoomerang: See CombatHandFan above.
* RasputinianDeath: [[spoiler: She survives being shot multiple times by Edgar. In contrast, she merely shoots Edgar three times and he dies instantly.]]
* SilkHidingSteel: Think this fan-carrying lady is harmless? [[spoiler: She is the last of the Kometa executives to die.]]
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: The sole female executive of Kometa.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart


[[folder:Lukas Hayes]]

-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/BeauBillingslea

->A scientist who works for Kometa. He is a pupil of Dr. Bosconovitch, whom he resents for being more popular than he is. From Bosconovitch, he stole a blueprint for Type J, which is later used by Kometa to mass produce robots. Lukas is the designer of Salacia, but when Kometa misuses his work for money, he attempts to escape, only to be captured again.


Tropes associated with Lukas:

* APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil: He used to be mentored by Dr. Bosconovitch, but when he realized that he would never outdo him he decided to leave Mishima Zaibatsu and took up job with Kometa.
* ActionSurvivor: He is the only true non-combatant in the game, so it is a wonder he is able to hold himself together for long.
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Subverted. The opening makes it look like he will be executed, but turns out that he is merely imprisoned, as Kometa still needs his expertise to activate Salacia. [[spoiler: He is the third major Kometa character to die.]]
* TheDarkChick: The most emotionally fragile member of Kometa, though he also doubles as an EvilGenius.
* EscortMission: Again like Alan, whenever Lukas is around, you have to ensure he survives. But unlike Alan, Lukas is a non-combatant and absolutely cannot defend himself.
* EvilGenius: Of Kometa.
* GoryDiscretionShot: [[spoiler: We see Edgar shooting Lukas from the latter's perspective. Nina only sees the aftermath.]]
* GreenEyedMonster: Against Dr. Bosconovitch.
* NerdGlasses: Wears these.
* JiveTurkey: His ghetto speech contrasts heavily with the general seriousness of the game.
* ShootTheShaggyDog: Nina spends her entire mission in Solitary Penitentiary to rescue Lukas, the only one who can deactivate Kometa. [[spoiler: Then he is captured by Enrique and forced to activate Kometa at gunpoint, after which Edgar kills him. But really, Nina's entire mission in the isle is doomed from the start, as her handler, Alan, is Edgar.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler: Edgar executes him after he places Salacia in position.]]


[[folder:Enrique Ortega]]

-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/SteveBlum

->An executive of Kometa who rules over Solitary Penitentiary Isle.


Tropes associated with Enrique

* EvilGenius: While Lukas builds Salacia, Enrique is the one who gets connections to send reinforcements for Kometa from Tekken Force.
* GratuitousSpanish: Peppers his speech with Spanish.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Wields one.
* OccidentalOtaku: Considering his choice of weapon and his role as an intermediate between Kometa and Mishima Zaibatsu.
* {{Omniglot}}: Speaks English, Spanish, and Japanese fluently.


[[folder:Bryce Adams]]

-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/LexLang

->Lana Lei's personal bodyguard and lover.


Tropes associated with Bryce:

* BareYourMidriff
* BodyguardCrush: He and Lana are lovers.
* TheBrute: Of Kometa.
* DeadGuyOnDisplay: [[spoiler: After he dies, Lana preserves his body, puts him on her bed, and adorns him with roses. The sight is creepy, to say the least.]]
* FadeToWhite: When he dies.
* GunNut: "I like guns". He means it; during his last fight with Nina, he throws his guns...only to bring out another pair.
* PosthumousCharacter: Not at the start, but we know more about him [[spoiler: including his relationship with Lana]] after he dies.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Pink.


!Other NPC

[[folder:Jane - ''Russia'']]


-> '''Appears in:''' ''2'', ''3'', ''5'', ''6''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Rumiko Varnes (T5), Creator/ErinFitzgerald (T6), Jessica Schwartz (Anime/TekkenTheMotionPicture, ENG)

->A girl orphaned in a conflict zone, she is spotted by Jack-2, who defies his programming and takes care of her. She later grows up to become a scientist for G Corporation.


Tropes associated with Jane:

* AGirlAndHerX: The X being a series of intelligent robots.
* HotScientist
* InterspeciesFriendship: With the Jacks, who retain their memories of Jane due to the Jack-2 chip installed on their programming.
* ParentalAbandonment: Her parents died in an unspecified conflict.
* SheIsAllGrownUp: Oh yes. Without the backstory, no one may ever know that the comely scientist who infiltrates Mishima Zaibatsu with Gun-Jack in his ''3'' epilogue is the same girl lounging with Jack-2 in his ''2'' ending.


[[folder:Dr. Abel - ''???'']]

-> '''Appears in:''' ''3'', ''4''

->A MadScientist working for Mishima Zaibatsu as a rival of Dr. Bosconovitch. He is the creator of Bryan Fury.


Tropes associated with Dr. Abel:

* ArchEnemy: Is frustrated that Dr. Bosconovitch gets more recognition than he does to the point that his first order to Bryan is to assassinate him.
* BadBoss: Abandons Bryan once he finds out that the latter fails to kill Bosconovitch and is slowly dying.
* {{Foil}}: To Dr. Bosconovitch. Bosconovitch is caring to his creations and robots in general, while Abel creates Bryan merely as a pawn for WorldDomination.
* MadScientist: Par excellence.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Hasn't been seen since [[spoiler: Bryan punches him in his ''4'' ending.]] However, he is mentioned by Heihachi in ''7'', so he may still be around.
* WorldDomination: Creates Bryan as a part of a planned zombie army that he would use to rule the world. Unfortunately, Bryan is crazier than he thought.


[[folder:Eddy's master - ''Brazil'']]


-> '''Appears in:''' ''3'', ''5''

->A master of capoeira, this man gives Eddy a purpose while the latter is incarcerated in prison by teaching him capoeira. He is also Christie's grandfather, and he instructs Eddy to teach Christie capoeira as soon as he is released.


* DotingGrandparent: Is one to Christie, as shown in her and Eddy's ''5'' ending.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Dies in Eddy and Christie's ''6'' endings.]]
* TheOldConvict: incarcerated since before Eddy came and actually released two years after the latter.
* OldMaster: Of capoeira.
* SoapOperaDisease: His unspecified illness conveniently gives Eddy and Christie enough time to participate in two whole tournaments. [[spoiler: Not that it stops him from dying.]]


[[folder:Emma Kliesen - ''Germany'']]


-> '''Appears in:''' ''TTT''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/MaryElizabethMcGlynn

->A scientist and executive of G Corporation and Leo's mother. She is murdered by an assassin sometime before the events of ''6'', and Leo suspects that her superiors, including Kazuya Mishima himself, are somehow responsible.


Tropes associated with Emma:

* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler: Once worked with Mishima Zaibatsu before she resigned, possibly due to objecting to the Hybrid Gene experiments that put children's lives in danger.]]
* DeathByOriginStory: Her death sparks Leo's quest to find out everything about G Corporation [[spoiler: and Mishima Zaibatsu]].
* DeceasedParentsAreTheBest: Leo remembers her fondly as a hardworking and caring single mother and regularly pays respects at her grave.
* GoodParents: To Leo. [[spoiler: Steve as well, if only briefly.]]
* HotScientist: When she was young.
* {{Meganekko}}
* MissingMom: Murdered before the events of ''6''.
* ParentalSubstitute: [[spoiler: To Steve.]]


[[folder:Tougou - ''Japan'']]


-> '''Appears in:''' ''6''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/HozumiGouda

->Lars' friend in the Tekken Force and one of the few to support his rebellion.


Tropes associated with Tougou:

* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Lars. There has to be a reason why he goes into trouble to defect from a world-dominating conglomerate to ally with a mere rebellious general.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: In Scenario Campaign.]]
* LastNameBasis: Thanks to being in the military, and as a result his given name is never revealed.
* MissionControl: Briefs Lars in several chapters of Scenario Campaign.
* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler: Dies just before the climax of the Scenario Campaign as a further motivation for Lars to go on and take down Kazuya and Jin.]]
* SatelliteCharacter: Has little characterization beyond being Lars' loyal friend.


[[folder:Shin Kamiya - ''Japan'']]


-> '''Appears in:''' ''Anime/TekkenBloodVengeance''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Creator/MamoruMiyano (JP), Creator/DavidVincent (ENG)

->An enigmatic ex-Mishima Polytechnic student hunted by Jin Kazama and Kazuya Mishima for unknown purposes. Their assistants, Nina and Anna, respectively, send Alisa and Xiaoyu to infiltrate Kyoto International School, where Shin now attends.


Tropes associated with Shin:

* TheAgeless: [[spoiler: Thanks to the M gene.]]
* BlessedWithSuck: [[spoiler: The experiment with the M gene has made him immortal, essentially denying him the ability to die naturally, and makes him pursued by people curious about the experiment's machinations in the first place. Then it's revealed that the experiment's a distraction all along.]]
* BungledSuicide: Xiaoyu first meets Shin after he jumps from a building. She later learns that he has tried to kill himself multiple times, without success. [[spoiler: They're prevented by his immortality.]]
* {{Hunk}}: He's quite cut for an ordinary high school student.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Heihachi swiftly disposes of Shin once his purpose as a lure is fulfilled.]]
* MrFanservice: A major reason Xiaoyu agrees for the espionage mission is because her target is a hottie.
* PowerTattoo: Sports a black tattoo on his arms [[spoiler: and chest, similar to the one possessed by Devil Jin. It glows green when Shin powers up the gene.]]
* RedHerring: [[spoiler: The M gene experiment is a lure Heihachi set up so Kazuya and Jin would personally face him, thus giving him chance to take their Devil Genes once again.]]
* RememberTheNewGuy: Shin was a classmate of Jin back during his high school days. However it's justified since Jin's school life beyond Xiaoyu is never explored, not to mention that he and Shin may not be close.
* ShowerScene: Other than for {{Fanservice}}, it's used to show Xiaoyu his tattoo, [[spoiler: a side effect of the M gene experiment]].
* SoleSurvivor: [[spoiler: Xiaoyu finds out that Shin is not the only one to become experimented with the M gene. He's just the only surviving one.]]
* TallDarkAndHandsome
* ToplessnessFromTheBack: During the aforementioned shower scene. Full-blown nakedness, actually; all the way to his rear end is shown.
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: Firmly holds this viewpoint. His first scene is a failed suicide, after all.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler: Once Kazuya and Jin are assembled, Shin is no longer of importance to Heihachi, who proceeds to break his back.]]


[[folder: The Reporter - ''???'']]

-> '''Appears in:''' ''7''

-> '''Voiced by:''' Brian Stivale

->A reporter from an unknown country conducting an investigation into the Mishimas after the deaths of his family during the war caused by Jin in ''6''. He is the narrator of the Mishima Saga Story Mode in ''7''.


Tropes associated with the Reporter:

* BestServedCold: Keeps quiet about his anger at Jin for causing the war that killed his family. It is only when the latter is vulnerable that he attempts to take revenge, but is fortunately stopped by Lars.
* DullSurprise: [[UptoEleven Oh boy...]]
* FirstPersonPeripheralNarrator: He's the narrator, but the combatants, especially the Mishima family, are the main characters.
* GoodParents: He cares for his son very much, and his death obviously angers him.
* IntrepidReporter: Will stop at ''nothing'' to write an expose about the Mishima and related families. He visits Japan on the spot just to confirm his findings for example.
* LateToTheTragedy: Comes home too late to see his hometown razed to the ground.
* NerdGlasses: Later chapters of the story reveal that he wears this one.
* NonActionGuy: Is one in the Story Mode of ''7'', being the only non-combatant in Lars' company.
* OutlivingOnesOffspring: His son is killed during the war.
