Fighting Style: Mimicry (Tag Tournament), Kazama-Style Traditional Martial Arts with supernatural powers (Tag Tournament 2)
Appears in: Tag, Tag 2
Voiced by: Mamiko Noto (Tag 2)
There are many fan theories about this character; the most popular around the game's release was that she was a brainwashed Jun Kazama, controlled by the lupine spirit that floated above her, although she only slightly resembles Jun (but always starts the match using her moveset). Nevertheless, as her name suggests, not much is known about her. She is the final boss character in TTT. In TTT2, she returns as the True Final Boss and reveals that, yes, she is a possessed Jun.
Her playstyle in Tag is a Ditto Fighter that can change what character she's mimicking, much like Shang Tsung. In Tag 2, she plays similarly to Asuka and Jun, with a few "boss" moves that makes her even more high risk - high reward.Tropes associated with Unknown:
- Ambiguously Evil: In Ogre's TTT ending, she taunts Ogre just as he is about to absorb Jin. Sure, she's probably attracting his attention solely for a fight, but doing so also releases Jin from Ogre's grasp, saving him from being absorbed, and we have no other detail because the ending isn't voiced...
- Animal Motifs: Possessed by a lupine spirit in the first Tag. Said spirit disappeared completely in the second Tag game. Although, once defeated in Arcade mode, a few wolf spirits are shown attacking her repeatedly until she finally succumbs.
- Big Bad: For the Tag games.
- Body Paint:
- The purple ooze that covers her body seems to be embedded in her skin. Without it, she'd be naked. See her TTT1 and TTT2 endings.
- From some of the continue screens, it seems that her ooze, uh, oozes in and out of the skin. In her Idle Animation, it occasionally creeps onto her left eye and reverts a few seconds later.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Certainly the case in the first Tag. The second title drops the "brainwashed" part and amps up the crazy.
- Cute and Psycho: She's half-nude and smiles a lot, but it's one of those smiles and where she fits on the good and bad scale is... well, unknown.
- Dem Bones: Some of her spike attacks have skeletons adorning them.
- Demonic Possession: By a wolfie. She breaks free of it in her ending, though.
- Ditto Fighter: Unlike other examples, she doesn't even need to wait until the end of the round. No longer the case in TTT2, as Unknown uses only Jun's style augmented by her boss moves.
- Evil Sounds Deep: Her grunts in Tag are Nina's T1 voice distorted. Like Angel's, except that Unknown's grunts are even deeper. In Tag 2, a distorted version of Jun's voice is used instead.
- Fallen Angel:
- In her TTT2 ending, like her default boss ending, she drowns down in her purple goop stage. Angel appears, touches her, and her ooze disappears while Unknown slowly sinks down to oblivion.
- If you think about it, her stage's name, Fallen Garden, is an extension of this.
- Faux Affably Evil: She's nicer than when she is in her Jun form. That's probably because she wants to (and probably will) absorb you.
- Final Boss: Of the two Tag games. In the original she is fought at the final stage as a solo character, in the sequel she begins the fight as Jun Kazama. Once Jun is defeated, she transforms her ornate garden into a nightmarish hell of black muck and herself into Unknown.
- Foil: To her alter ego. Whereas Jun is quite reserved, conservative and graceful... Unknown is quite sensual (if you can call it that), unrestrained and zombie-like.
- Full-Frontal Assault: She is technically naked, aside from the purple ooze which covers her body. Her alternate costume in Tag 1, however, gives her a torn brown dress.
- Giant Hands of Doom: In Tag 2, Unknown can summon a giant disembodied hand from the ground, which is useful for starting combos. This hand can also be used in a certain Unblockable Attack that swallows your entire health bar bar a pinprick if you get caught in it (only if she is the enemy; if you're playing as her, it deals a mere 15% damage).
- Giggling Villain: When transforming in Boss mode, she takes an erotic breath before she turns her head up to her opponent and starts chuckling. Listen carefully.
- Green Eyes: Her ending in Tag shows that she has these when not possessed by the wolf spirit. Retconned to brown in Tag 2, since she is the One-Winged Angel of Jun, who has brown eyes.
- Go Out with a Smile: In the TTT2 Unlimited credits, as her body sinks to the Fallen Garden slime, the last visible part of her is her lips, which turns up into a grin right before she completely disappears.
- HP to 1: That portal pool in Tag 2. Nope, it isn't that damaging when you're controlling her.
- Mama Bear: In Ogre's TTT ending, she distracts Ogre from absorbing Jin by taunting him into a fight. Considering that she's Jun, she'll probably smack him with a dose of maternal fury.
- One-Winged Angel: Of Jun.
- Portal Pool: Has the ability to summon this for the aforementioned disembodied hand to rise in Tag 2.
- Power Tattoo: The same as Jin's, only with reverse orientation.
- Promoted to Playable: In both Tag games, she's an unplayable boss in the arcades, but the console versions make her playable.
- Psychotic Smirk: Unlike Jun, she smiles quite a bit. Even when she's as good as naked. Or threatening. Or batshit insane. Or all three.
- Quieter Than Silence: Does not NEED to say anything in her introduction. Her pose and the ominous wind sound effect is enough to convey her eeriness.
- The Reveal: Jun serves as the Final Boss in Tag 2. When you beat her in the first round, she becomes Unknown.
- Retcon: According to the Tekken 6 artbook, she was originally supposed to be Jun's younger sister, but that was dropped when Tekken Tag became non-canonical. In Tag 2, she's Jun herself.
- Silent Snarker
- Spikes of Doom: Capable of summoning these from above in Tag 2.
- Superpowered Evil Side: She fits the superpowered side for Jun, but given Jun herself is very much Darker and Edgier and Good Is Not Nice, and Unknown seems nicer (see Faux Affably Evil above) consider it an Inverted Trope for now.
- SNK Boss: Not so much in the first Tag title, but moreso on the 2nd title. Let's see here. Rather large health bar with the ability to recover health? Check. Counters just like Jun Kazama but much stronger and with higher priority? Check. A move that can reduce your health to 1 point while force-tagging your partner in? Check. Attacks from above and/or below that can't be anticipated and are very punishing? Check. Aggressively using her boss moves while aggressively attacking you? Check. Of course, these boss moves are nerfed when playing as Unknown.
- Supernatural Gold Eyes: Very appropriate for someone who's Jun's alter ego.
- The Scream: In both Tag games, if you look closely (maybe freeze framing a bit), Unknown's attack effects are actually white, screaming human faces.
- There Was a Door: Forcefully invoked in one of her command grabs, wherein, if her opponent is not backed up to an already extant wall, she creates one of hardened goo through which she then smashes her opponent. If she's paired up with her human form, she can change back and proceed from there.
- The Voiceless: Other than her combat grunts, groans, and her chuckle, she doesn't say anything. Which does more for her character than if she spoke.
- Transformation Sequence:
- Jun undergoes one before becoming Unknown. Featuring erotic breathing, a giggle, and very dark goo.
- In-game, though, averted. Unlike Kazuya and Devil, even if they're the same individual, Unknown and Jun need to tag out the boring way: running away offscreen. In both Tag and Tag 2.
- Funnily enough, in Tag, Unknown will do a transformation sequence (i.e. being surrounded by electric charges) to tag with Devil if she is currently mimicking Kazuya.
Fighting Style: "Tetsujin-Ken" (mimicry)
Appears in: Tag, Revolution (unplayable boss), Mobile (unplayable boss)
A mimic character like Mokujin, only made out of metal. His only appearance was in Tekken Tag Tournament.
It finally makes a reappearance in Tekken Revolution as a secret sub-boss.Tropes associated with Tetsujin:
- The Bus Came Back: After being absent for four games, it returns in Revolution where it occasionally appears as a secret boss.
- Chrome Champion: A metal version of Mokujin.
- Ditto Fighter: Mimics another character at random.
- Meaningful Name: His name literally translates to "Iron Man" in English.
- Palette Swap: Of Mokujin.
- Out of Focus: Tetsujin has no appearances outside of TTT until Revolution.
- The Voiceless
