** In Japan, newcomer Claudio is referred to as "Osse", which is his line of dialogue where his hand becomes engulfed in blue energy. His odd spin kick is also called "Genocide Cutter", based on Rugal's move in The King of Fighters. (The actual name on his movelist is "Sky Slash Nova," for those who are curious.) His running punch is also referred to as "Superman Punch" or "Burn Knuckle".

** In the [=PS3=] version of ''Tekken Tag Tournament 2'', there was originally going to be an OldSaveBonus to those who bought ''Tekken Hybrid'', which included an HD remaster of ''Tekken Tag Tournament 1'' and a demo of ''Tag 2''. These extras would have been the ''Blood Vengeance'' outfits for Xiaoyu and Alisa, the movie's designs for Devil Jin and Devil Kazuya, and Shin Kamiya as a selectable character, who would have been a MovesetClone of Jin. Everything with the exception of Shin was present in the ''Tag 2'' demo, but did not make the cut to the final game due to hardware limitations.

** The first sequel ''Tekken 2'' was rivals to ''Virtua Fighter 2'' and ''Dead or Alive''. All three of them are 3D fighting games that continued the popularity of the martial arts archetype for 3D fighting games. Although ''Tekken 2'' didn't use the Sega Model 2 like its other two rivals, it was also like the other two to be the final entry to use 32-bit polygons.

* FlipFlopOfGod: Around 2012, Harada stated that he maintained a policy not to introduce characters as paid DLC in ''Tekken''. This was likely an attempt to calm the fighting game fanbase down following the shitstorm caused by the scandal of ''VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken'', whose DLC characters are not only paid, but turned out to be already on the disc. ''Tekken Tag Tournament 2'' doesn't feature paid character DLC, so the promise seemed genuine. Fast forward to 2017, Eliza and Geese Howard were both revealed as paid character DLC for ''Tekken 7'' (in case of the former, if you didn't pre-order the game). Harada at first stated that this break only affects guests and would never be applied to classic characters, but only did Eliza, a classic character, disprove this (before the statement went out, no less), a year after release, Anna Williams and Lei Wulong, both classic characters with plenty of history in the series in case Eliza is not authentic enough, were added as paid DLC.

** And the sentiment for the above led into the infamous "Don't ask me for SHIT" T-shirt.

While he does disagree with fan assumptions and expectations (of character inclusions specifically), he is receptive to genuine fan interest and questions.

** TwoVoicesOneCharacter: Overlaps with the above trope. For the majority of the roster who do not originate from Asia or speak languages from that region (like Lars and Alisa speaking Japanese despite representing Sweden and Russia respectively), there have often been discrepancies with their battle grunts and cutscene dialogue where it is made clear that two seperate actors are providing the voices. For example, characters like Eddy and Julia retain their voice grunts from ''5'' despite getting more prominent English voice actors in ''6'', and in Eddy's case, lost ''that'' in favor a native speaker of Brazilian Portugese in ''Tag 2'' (similar treatment applies to characters from non-English territories who spoke the language in previous games).
