** It was pretty much an OneNightStand with her, one would guess. The story of ''6'' does make it clear that their relationship was consensual - Kaz did feel attraction for Jun and viceversa. They most likely had an OneNightStand while competing in the second King of Iron Fist (''Tekken 2''), but their relationship went to nowhere as Kaz was soon knocked out and dropped into a volcano by Hei, and Jun went missing after her encounter with Ogre prior to the third tournament.

They most likely had an OneNightStand a one night stand while competing in the second King of Iron Fist (''Tekken 2''), but then their relationship went to nowhere as Kaz was soon knocked out and dropped into a volcano by Hei, Hei (only to reappear several decades later, courtesy of the G Corporation) and Jun herself went missing after her fateful encounter with Ogre prior to the third tournament.

** Clearly an homage to ''MobileSuitGundam''. Even the mansion you fight on is reminiscent of an episode in ''MobileSuitGundamZZ''.

** Jin ''can'' morph into Devil Jin and vice versa ([[http://www.tekkenzaibatsu.com/forums/showthread.php?postid=4433332#post4433332 see here for more details]]), but it's an alternative way of tagging out (so, unlike Kazuya/Devil in ''TTT'', you don't leave yourself open to combos/miss out on combo opportunities due to the transformation time). As for why (Ancient) Ogre/(True) Ogre can't do the same, beats me. There have been theories that perhaps Ancient Ogre isn't the Ogre that transformed into True Ogre back in ''3'', but is just one of many other Ogres ([[spoiler:perhaps given credence by A. Ogre's ending]]), so make of that as you will.

*** A good joke is that Angel is after True Ogre in the console TTT2 intro because he stole her swimwear. (In this game, True Ogre has 3 customization items that happen to be bikinis hanging off his horns; the bikinis come in 3 colors just like the swimwear for all characters that do have one).

*** Ok, to add an ademendum to the last part, Jin would only go to Heihachi AFTER Jun died (which, [[GiantSpaceFleeFromNowhere thanks to Ogre]], [[BusCrash probably made it happen FAR faster than what Jun intended]]) - and again, if she sent Jin to somebody else, they wouldn't just face Heihachi chasing after them, but [[HiredGuns the entire TEKKEN Force]], (which, in even the earliest games, were depicted as a full-fledged NGOSuperpower). In essence, if Jun sent Jin to [[NatureHero Michelle]] or [[SuperCop Lei]], they would have a "YouAndWhatArmy" moment when Heihachi sics the TEKKEN Force on them - [[CurbStompBattle and likely would've lost in that moment too]].

** Several if not all characters in the series have their own reasons for joining the tournament, not to mention the big prize money the Mishima Zaibatsu offers and the claim to the title of the WorldsStrongestMan. Sadly, ''anyone'' who is not a Mishima isn't particularly important in the main plot, so, yeah. Being a [[{{Tekken}} King of Iron Fist Tournament contestant]] [[MemeticMutation is suffering]].

* Okay, spoilers for 7 I guess; Heihachi gambits the situation where he proves to the world that Kazuya is a devil before obliterating G Corp's HQ with his KillSat. Fine, but soon after Kazuya blows the satellite out of the sky and it destroys a town, while G Corp rather transparently starts the rumor that Mishima Zaibatsu dropped it out of the sky for... lulz, I guess? The whole world then kinda forgets that G Corp was run by an actual devil and starts blaming the Zaibatsu because they're only capable of doing one thing at a time. Question: Why the hell did Mishima not try and spin this in any way? Why did they not claim (somewhat rightly) that G Corp espionage was responsible for the disaster? Hell, why not secure footage from one of a million potential sources that shows Devil Kazuya's shoop-da-whoop from G Corp's ruins. Why did they not even try to say "hey, that incident was terrible, but the rumors we caused it intentionally have no grounds because it's far more likely that our corporate rival - ''which was ran by a victim's DEVIL'' - did it than the possibility that Heihachi got drunk one night and stumbled onto the 'CRASH MULTI-TRILLION YEN SATELLITE INTO MIANUS FOR A CHUCKLE' button."
