- In Kazuya's ending, he tosses Heihachi off a cliff, like his father did. Turns out Heihachi survived, and sends Kazuya a letter.
- Nina's ending has her sister Anna confront her over a missing high heel shoe. Just as she gets in close and starts chewing her out with presumed accusations, Nina then promptly delivers an Armor-Piercing Slap that causes her sister to back off and cry into her hands. Then Nina reveals she had the shoe after all behind Anna's back.
- Marshall's ending: He is practicing with Paul and perform a spectacular backflip. Paul smugly believes he can do the same thing and falls on his face.
- As a bonus, Paul's botched somersault is now actually part of his movelist, starting in 4!
- Forrest's Ending: Similar to Marshall's ending in 2. Forrest, Marshall and Paul are at a dojo. The camera focuses on Forrest who does a flip and recovers standing up. Pan to Marshall and Paul who are knocked down, failing to emulate the move. Forrest just shrugs at the camera.
- Mokujin's ending : Right off the bat, his wife (At least, a female Mokujin who we can assume to be his wife) beats him up, throws a bucket on his head, and tells him to fetch water from the river. On his way back, he sees two "Mokujin kids" playing Tekken 3 on a wooden arcade machine. Mokujin watches them at first, then starts playing himself and kicking ass. He claps his hands while laughing, then realizes that his wife is standing right behind him, and he gets uppercuted again.
- Xiaoyu's ending. It starts off with her imagining herself and Panda having fun in "Xiaoyu Land", her very own amusement park, in a very cute chibi art style. Then the scene shifts to a slightly more serious anime style, and Heihachi reveals the amusement park that he actually built : Instead of the castle, cute animals and overall Xiaoyu-themed rides of the dream, this park has a giant pagoda, Heihachi-themed rides, and a huge-ass statue of himself. The board at the entrance that said "Xiaoyu Land" falls and reveals another one that says "Heihachi Land", while Heihachi had a hilarious Evil Laugh usually done by some foppish villain, unlike his much more sinister one. Cue Xiaoyu beating the shit out of him as the letters "J" "E" "R" "K" "!" flash on the screen.
- Tekken Force: *GULP* Chicken!
- Heihachi's ending, in which he ties Jinpachi, Kazuya and Jin to a rocket and launches said rocket into outer space.
- Asuka's ending in Tekken 5: She beats Jinpachi and and runs over to Devil Jin, and her touch causes the devil part to recede, causing the player to think this is gonna be a touching scene between the Kazamas. Then Jin (unconscious) falls over, face first, into her chest. Cue the typical anime girl reaction. After a very long, very awkward pause. And Jin's complete obliviousness to Asuka's curbstomping of him is just the icing on the cake.
- Lee's ending, with a lot of Fan Disservice from Heihachi. To elaborate: after Lee wins the tournament, he makes Heihachi his butler, wearing nothing but a speedo. While he's attending to him (and his girls) by his estate pool, he mutters threats under his breath... just as Lee reminds him that there is a bomb in the bowtie he's wearing, and Lee has the detonator with him. Heihachi resumes his duties quickly and frantically, while Lee utters his trademark "Excellent!"
- "Two Fingers!"
- To drive the point home for Heihachi, he gets an Imagine Spot which is the exact same explosion from the Tekken 5 intro, showing that he really doesn't want to go through that again.
- Law's ending. Finally paying the debts for Forrest's accident, Marshall is back to square one: "Broke again..." Cue Paul arriving in a broken bicycle with his motorcycle ruins and sending the debt to Marshall again. Marshall gets a hilarious Oh, Crap! expression, and the screen goes to mock the usual fighting screen of Tekken 5 (with Life Bar HUD), in which Marshall one-shots Paul with an uppercut, and then switches back to CGI where he's running away. The old-timey Slapstick music is just the icing on the cake.
- Panda's ending, in which Kuma gets rejected (again) and Xiaoyu gets a little too curious. Just... here.
- A cutscene which involves Roger (Mrs) confronting Mokujin and pointing out just how ridiculous the Translation Convention is, being that a block of wood understands kangaroo language and vice versa. And if either one beats the other, they parody another character's defeat scene.
Roger Mama/Mokujin: Excuse me, I'm looking for my husband/family? Do you know where he is/they are?Mokujin/Roger Mama: No, but if you defeat me, I'll help.Roger Mama/Mokujin: How can you help?! You can't even talk!Roger Mama: I wear the pants in MY family!
- Paul's ending: He opens up a dingy dojo with threats written outside, in preparation of a big battle. That battle is beginning to show up as he issues his challenge.
Anytime! Anyplace!!! BRING IT ON YA ALIENS!!!!!
- It gets funnier once it is revealed that the dojo is inside a space station. And the aliens are already coming.
Jinpachi: My objective is to destroy all. (Paul picks at his ear) While you mortals enjoyed your peaceful, prosperous existence, I sat imprisoned, waiting... waiting for the day I would be freed. For what felt like an eternity, I endured... (Paul squats down on the ground, and grabs at it like he lost a contact lens or something) I endured all this time, letting my hatred for humanity fester inside, growing stronger each day-!!Paul: I GOT your freaking point!!! Either way, I’ll be the toughest on Earth after I kick your ass, right?Paul: TEN SECONDS!!! Ten seconds, and I'll be Number 1!!
- Prior to that, his cutscenes. Kuma begs him to save the Zaibatsu only for to be ignored by Paul celebrating his victory, and he blatantly ignores Jinpachi's rants while picking his ear, only caring about the fact that he can become the World's Strongest Man by beating him.
- In Bob's ending from 6, he loses all of his weight, prompting him to Freak Out and bang his head against the wall of his house until he passes out.
- Lee's ending in 6. He plays golf, using exploding golf balls, aiming for Heihachi Kazuya and Jin strapped to rockets.
- Heihachi and Kuma all share a similar ending in 6. Heihachi takes Jin and Kazuya into high orbit, then throws them off of the shuttle...only for this to bite him in the ass. In Kuma's case, he was lucky that he threw Kazuya off the shuttle without reply...until Kuma, Jin, and Kazuya all wind up descending back to earth like shooting stars. As they blast off like Team Rocket in Pokémon, Ganryu is seen pining for Julia.
- The text used in the Scenario Campaign in 6 has its moments. A few of them:
Xiaoyu: Father, please stop!Kazuya: Who is this insolent girl?Alisa: Ling Xiaoyu. She appears to be a student here.Xiaoyu: If you don't stop quarrelling with Jin, I'll have to kill you so the two of us can elope.Kazuya: You're becoming annoying. Out of my sight.
- Using Kazuya against Xiaoyu:
Ganryu: Ohhhh! My dearest Julia came to visit me? This is the happiest day of my life! Finally, I can give you this engagement ring that I've held onto for so long!Julia: Sorry to interrupt. Um, I can come back another time.Ganryu: You're leaving? Wait! You no doubt refuse the ring because you recognize the poor state of my finances! Ohh, how modest! How refined! I should have expected nothing less of my dear Julia!Julia: What? I don't know what twisted fantasy world you live in, but—Ganryu: Oh! Worry not, this ring is already paid for! Take it! I insist! You needn't refrain from showing me your true feelings any longer, my love! (Fight begins—Julia's showing her true feelings, all right...)
- Using Julia against Ganryu:
Dragunov: ...Alisa: My research finds that such tankers are not permitted in close proximity to piers.Dragunov: ...Alisa: Are you missing a speech module? Is that it?Lili: Welcome aboard my ship. Are you going to be my new toy?Dragunov: ...Lili: Ooh, I wonder how you'll sing when I hurt you. I can't wait to find out!Alisa: I'd like to hear his voice, too.
- Using Dragunov against Lili:
- Then we have Asuka, declaring she will fry Jin's bottom if she ever gets her hands on him.
- Asuka's/Lili's ending. She is riding her bike at full speed, because she is almost late. Only to crash into Lili's limo, drooping her bento in the process. She angrily asks her why she did that for. Only for Lili to declare that, her first school day is ruined. Asuka predictably explodes and attacks her. Lili's driver wisely runs away. In Lili's version the driver is replaced with Sebastian who happily notes tha's Lili's making friends.
- Which transitions into Pandas' ending, where a late Xiaoyu is riding Panda at full speed to get to school on time, knocking the limo aside, while Lili and Asuka are lucky to dodge a speeding Panda. They exchange a glance, and then chase down Xiaoyu.
- Marshall's ending: He celebrates with his buddies Paul and Steve. He then, covers the pizza in laxative and while Paul and Steve are stuck dealing with the laxatives, Marshall runs off with the prize money.
- Paul's ending: He and Marshall drop each other simultaneously. Marshall kicks Paul in the face and gets a Groin Attack from Paul's extended fist.
- Ganryu's ending: He defeats Azazel and absorbs the power from his core, gaining horns and wings similar to Devil Jin... Except he's too heavy to fly.
Tekken Tag Tournament
- Tekken Tag has a mode called Tekken Bowl, where a fighter and his\her partner go bowling. The game uses a power meter, and it's tricky to do but if you get it just over max your fighter will slide down the lane.
- Also in Tekken Bowl, your character can aim right out of the lane then throw the ball, which results in hitting a spectator. Like the manual says in imitating the fighting moves, both of these moments results in the game helpfully pointing out Don't Try This at Home.
- It's also an Easter Egg: one spectator in particular is Dr. Boskonovitch, who can even be KO'd!
- This commercial.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2
- Snoop Dogg, of all people, getting a cameo in Tag 2, in the form of a stage featuring him (the BGM being a special single he's written just for the game). The stage is a massive golden arena surrounded by lowriders rotating around it on giant mechanical arms, and Snoop himself on a throne surrounded by ladies. It is exactly as fantastically absurd as it sounds.
- Anna Williams breaks the fourth wall by calling Gamestop customers who have pre-ordered the game. Hearing Tara Platt in her sexy voice saying "Let's try two-on-one." is gut-busting.
- Lars's ending. A family dinner with Jun, Asuka, Heihachi, Kazuya and Jin (which makes one think that this was Jin's idea). It's…actually better than you might think. Except for Lars. Also counts as a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming, mainly for the Mishima and Kazama just sitting down for a family dinner and not trying to kill each other, although fighting over Jun's cooking... is a totally different matter.
- Made more funny with this in mind: Lars's moveset is mostly composed of unnaturally-acrobatic and fast and hard-hitting moves, yet he can't eat anything for being too slow. He does manage to get the consolation prize of the konbu strip...for all of one second...
- Wang's Tag 2 ending. Breaking the Fourth Wall in a way Deadpool would be proud of.
Jinpachi: By the way, old friend, didn't you die after beating Azazel last time?
Wang: That's right, I did die. My awesome existence allowed me to cheat death and stand before you now.
Jinpachi: They were this close to killing off a no-name character like you. The only reason you're still here is because those wussy game developers didn't have the heart to go through with it. You'll never figure anything out until you start facing reality.
Wang: Hmph! That's a lot to say coming from a guy who turned into sand in my very hands that one time.
- Even funnier, it's basically a convention of Tekken's Badass Grandpas, who are trying to figure out how to compete with the younger, more popular characters. Their solution? Become CYBORG Badass Grandpas!
- Topped off by the fact that it's Quadrilingual Dialogue, with everyone speaking in their native language: Wang speaks Mandarin, Jinpachi speaks Japanese, Dr. B speaks Russian, and Sebastian speaks French. The Fourth Wall never stood a chance.
- And the whole gag is capped off when Ganryu and Baek Doo San walk in, seeing the other geezers babbling like little children over their future cyborg enhancements, causing Baek to Face Palm.
- Both of Bob's endings are both this and CMOAs for him. While walking down the street at night, he comes across a gang of mugglers harassing some kids. He promptly puts on a superhero costume and shows up before them. The muggers mock him by calling him a "traffic sign", and attack him, but Bob easily beats the shit out of them. Bob then hears a scream, and turns around to see a young woman about to fall to her death. With the help of the kids, Bob manages to save her in time, and the whole street cheers for him. Cue the next day, Bob takes a look in the newspapers headlines and sees a photo of him taking off his superhero costume with the caption "Traffic Sign Hero Revealed to be Tekken Champion!".
- His Slim ending, has him finding a few muggers bullying an old man. He puts on the same suit which is naturally too big and his pants fall ruining his entrance. He gets called a Mexican wrestler and Sci-fi Santa. While wiping the floor with the thugs, he complains that he's weak and gets Mr. Clown by the old man. After rescuing a girl in the subway, she winds up with his mask much to his horror.
- Roger Jr.'s ending is both this and Crosses the Line Twice for Roger Sr. Let's see, Roger Sr. tried to make amends with his wife again and found out that the family have been taking in his buddy back in 2, Alex. Roger Sr. has a Freak Out and recalled his son's endings in 5 & 6 where he made his family mad and laments on how stupid he was... and before he could do anything else, the door opens and slams him flat to the wall when Roger Jr. and Alex go out to play. Roger Mama found the rose bouquet and the loving message from Roger Sr... but didn't know where he was because he's flattened to the wall.
- Lee's ending where he's speaking to his secretary about his business plans for the day and the entire time Lee attacks every soldier that tries to attack him in a rather casual and non-chalant matter like it happens everyday and it ends with him giving a soldier a Groin Attack and saying "Excellent!".
- The Fight Lab is filled with various hilarious dialogues between zany Violet and sane secretary, but the crowning moment goes to the ending where Combot DX initially trashes Heihachi with a combo of his own attacks, leaving him with a dumbfounded K.O. face. However, the Combot soon dominates Heihachi, Kazuya and Jin alone, and Violet just ordered Combot DX to unleash its super move... but then Combot DX is headshotted by Devil Jin's laser. Violet laments that he didn't put a countermeasure against the Devil Gene, but then resorts to the way that fixes all three together: Detonate Combot DX. It's made even better by the fact that although Kazuya and Heihachi understandably go Oh, Crap!, Devil Jin has a much calmer expression, as if he's thinking "Oh boy, This Is Gonna Suck."
- Brace yourselves: the Wii U version has Mario mushrooms and Nintendo costumes. It's as ridiculous and hilarious as it sounds.
- Dragunov's ending involves him getting a boxed package from Bosconovitch Labs. After closing a curtain, he opens it to find a disassembled Alisa inside. What follows next looks like a scene from a Christmas comedy as Dragunov tries and fails miserably to follow the packaged instructions, which includes accidentally jetting himself across the room with Alisa's jetpack. Giving one more read-over the instructions, he ends up opening a panel with a Big Red Button in it. He presses it. Cut to the exterior of the building and a huge explosion blasting out of the side. What makes this ending arguably even funnier is the fact that he never changes his facial expression throughout the whole thing.
- Related to Dragunov's ending: his and Alisa's unique win pose if using them as a team. Alisa jets over to Dragunov and tilts her head... causing it to fall off. Cue a rather startled and confused Dragunov.
- Feng Wei's ending. Feng Wei is doing his exercises with full tea cups while Asuka is trying to kick his ass to reclaim her gym sign. After unsuccessfully missing every attack (and at one point getting tossed through a wall from what's basically an Offhand Back Hand), Asuka stomps on the ground, breaking Feng's tea cups simultaneously. A while later, as Asuka is about to leave with her sign, she bumps into Feng and falls to the ground as he gives her the Death Glare to end all Death Glares. The ending has Asuka looking horrified before it Smashes To Black as she screams for her life.
- Paul's ending. As Paul and the Law family are enjoying a guys' day out, Forest notices Kuma sleeping out in the wilderness. As Marshall tells his son it's not Kuma and it's just some grizzly bear, Forest is already found getting closer to said bear and tosses a rock at it. The bear is revealed to not be Kuma as the Law family and Paul run for their lives. Paul then stops in his tracks and decides to use his signature punch and sends the bear flying. It appears as though Paul has saved the day, until the bear's mother appears and the 3 are screaming in terror.
- Mokujin's ending, where he gets invited to a tour of Namco's main offices upon winning the tournament. While there, he meets a female Mokujin, and then it goes into a montage of them doing cliched romantic things. As they bid farewell to each other, the female Mokujin notices the male one giving his affections towards some female visitors, which pisses her off and makes her uppercut the male Mokujin out of the building. Oh yes, and throughout the ending it just looks like the two Mokujins are photoshopped onto various pictures of the Namco headquarters.
- Kuma's ending starts off with him making poses for a group of schoolgirls who are taking pictures of him, thinking he's a guy in a costume. After a moment, he sees Panda, and starts to look menacing in order to scare the schoolgirls away, then immediately afterwards rushes towards Panda due to being in his "heat-mode". She uppercuts him hard, then walks away nonchalantly as Kuma crashes to the ground. The scene ends with a guy in a panda costume asking Kuma if he's OK. Sadly, sex prevails as Kuma starts to "attack" the poor guy.
- Sebastian's ending. He drives a depressed Lili home from the tournament and turns the radio on in an attempt to lighten the mood. All the stations are talking about how Sebastian won the tournament (with the implication Lili lost to him) and he freaks out trying to find another station, then when that fails, trying to break the radio by kicking it.
- Lili's ending. With just a single word (and a LOT of money), she gets a group of mobstersnote who were about to start a gang war to dance the Can Can together.
- Marshall Law's ending. After impressing his son Forest with his nunchaku skills, Forest wants a go. As soon as he grabs them, they go flying out the window, causing a horrific pileup. There's an explosion in there too.
- Bruce's ending. He sprints down a busy street and runs into the road, punching an oncoming car into the air. Bruce has a chick cupped in his hands and tells it that it's safe now, as the car falls from the sky behind him and explodes.
- The special victory pose that Yoshimitsu and Kunimitsu have if paired together. Yoshimitsu dares Kunimitsu to stab him. Predictably, she goes for it, and then Yoshimitsu teleports away at the last moment. Problem, Kuni?
- Some of the Denser and Wackier tag-team poses in general. Special mention for Nina delivering a Literal Ass Kicking to Anna, Alisa scaring the crap out of Mokujin with her dual-chainsaws, anytime a winged fighter pulls a Screw This, I'm Outta Here! on their partner, or any time the Funny Animals do a Happy Dance.
- Alisa's ending involves her and her friends at a photo booth, taking pictures of themselves. Unfortunately, some sensors in Alisa's body cause her to close her eyes as soon as the flash goes off. There is a way to fix it, but it involves removing Alisa's head from the rest of her body, which looks... a little creepy. However, Miharu finds a solution: draw Alisa's body on the booth's lens, and have Panda hold Alisa's head just above it, making it look like she still has her body. It looks pretty weird, but the girls like it anyway. The icing on the cake is Alisa's body waiting outside, creeping everybody out.
- Heihachi's ending: after the effects of the youth serum wear off, Heihachi, now old again, grabs another flask and downs it to return to his prime again. Then, a female scientist hands him a test tube containing what can be assumed to be something to make him more powerful (It's never explained). Heihachi drinks it, and starts to transform: he gets bigger, grows claws, becomes more menacing... and turns into a bear. The scene ends with him freaking out on the poor young woman who gave him the tube.
- Some of the Item Moves, especially with Mokujin being The Chew Toy suffering most of them:
- Marshal Law smacking the opponent with a Frying Pan of Doom.
- Steve Fox delivering a kick for once, only to hop up and down clutching the foot he kicked with.
- Asuka pulling out a Hyperspace Mallet.
- Lili giving the opponent a teddy-bear bomb.
- Roger Jr. spinning the opponent around, and throwing them so hard they imbed themselves in the ground.
- Kazuya's Hammerhead has him headbutting the opponent until they're in the ground.
- Miharu pulls Refuge in Audacity at its finest: she shoves the opponent down, but before the opponent lands on the ground, Miharu pulls out her cellphone, and takes a selfie of both her and the opponent. It's funny enough with Miharu's cheesy smile and V Sign, but what's even better are all the potential expressions her opponents come up with, from last-second smiles of their own to infuriated scowls. Even better are the Funny Animal variants, (where they basically look as silly as possible), and the Jack robots, (where they play a Bunny Ears Picture Prank on Miharu)
- Even Heihachi can't resist cracking a smile!
- All three times Lei shows up in the Tag 2 endings are hilarious: first in his own ending, having an impromptu fight with Marshall - showing off his bizarre moves at their finest and ending up with them knocking each other out. Second, when Hwoarang and Jin are racing on their motorbikes, Jin disappears out of sight with convenient timing... just as Lei pulls Hwoarang over for speeding. Lastly, arresting Ganryu for voyeurism whilst he spies on Julia in the shower.
- For a Funny Background Event in the Odeum of Illusions stage, you can see a magician performing tricks on the theater's stage. If you look closely, you can occasionally see him losing control of his tricks and running around frantically, waving his wand around.
- Michelle's ending. While Julia's in the shower, Michelle finds her Jaycee wrestling mask and decides to try it on. While looking at herself in a mirror, she starts showing off and doing a bunch of cool poses, getting so caught up in it that she doesn't notice when Julia gets out. Michelle gets extremely embarrassed and starts to take the mask off, but instead Julia has a better idea. Thus they form a mother-daughter wrestling team!
- Prototype Jack's ending is a hilarious Call Back to his ending in 2. He is seen boarding, piloting and launching a huge replica of himself (basically a Robot Me of a robot), only to see one of the construction P. Jacks waving at him. He mistakes it as a good-by wave and gives a thumbs-up, but the P. Jack is actually warning him that a screw is missing. Then boom goes the giant P. Jack, as three screws fall to the ground, like his ending in 2.
- Kunimitsu's job. No, not a ninja, a refrigerator repair ninja. Whether she actually does it costume and all is anyone's guess, but refrigerator repair ninja is one of those terms that fits right in with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or Ninja Baseball Bat Man.
- The custom outfits. Not online where anything goes, Namco made these up and they appear from time to time. As if seeing Jun and Jin dressed like fans of One Direction isn't strange enough, we have Bob dressed as a Power Ranger and it only gets better from there. Perhaps the strangest is Kazuya as a muscled gimp with leather shoulder pads, boots and the briefest of briefs. And fairy wings. And a halo, which causes him to float with angels. Not to mention his hammer-shaped hair. after a KO. Or if that doesn't grab you how about a expy of Blade except he's dressed as a passenger liner captain? Or Alex, already a boxing velociraptor, wielding a shotgun sporting a pompadour and wearing an outfit based on Elvis Presley? Or Mokujin, already strange enough, with a giant pen as a weapon and dressed as a university professor? Or... let's just say the game has a sense of humor.
- Some of the items count as well. You have guns, knives an other weapons that are usable and that's fine, then you get ice creams of different flavors, magic wands and other assorted oddities. Nothing quite beats Heihachi ramming a mud cake in your face where the plate stays for the rest of the match.
- Anna's ending. She's posing for pictures on the red carpet, and skilfully stops Nina's assassination attempt. Zafina then tries to stop her, but Anna uses a smoke grenade. Finally, she gets a giant rocket launcher and just goes from there.
- This series gives us Eliza the narcoleptic vampire. Her intro pose has her falling asleep mid sentence. Also her Bloody Claw has her falling asleep after hitting it.
- Miguel's Reveal Trailer, which has him taking a bite out of an apple, just to make him look like even more of an asshole.
- Eliza can now fall asleep on the ground and in the trailer she use it to dodge an attack.
- When she encounters Lili at the end of her trailer. She falls asleep much to the latter's annoyance.
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aci21hdepDI <— This is an official Recap trailer done in a 16 bit style. It cuts the first 3 games into 5 minutes. Highlights include:
- Mishima Zaibatsu being noted for animal smuggling... as Kazua stands in the middle of rare animals crawling around his evil looking office
- Jun revealing she's pregnant, Kazuya respondes "Gotta go" then leaves.
- Jin happily introducing himself as Heiachi's grandsom when looking for training
- Heihachi repeatedly attacking people
- "Betrayal" being a sound effect
