When you have a fighting game series with a dysfunctional demon family, a bear as the big bad's bodyguard, Robots with mohawks, Jpop Idols and the likes, there's bound to be a lot of these moments.

  • Kuma's and Panda's Fatal Wind (b,B+2+3) unblockable in Tekken games prior to 7. Yes, it's that kind of Fatal Wind and it's Exactly What It Says on the Tin; provided it actually connects, that is.
  • Miguel's Burla Translation  (f+3+4,F) is also a One-Hit KO that sees Miguel outright laughing in his opponent's face before annihilating their health bar with a well-placed haymaker. Again, this is assuming it actually hits.
  • Sometimes whenever Anna or Nina perform a Twisted Mind (d+3+4) on Bryan while he's floored, he'll outright laugh as he's getting his balls crushed. Looks like somebody's having the time of his life...
  • Simlarly, if Bryan is Yoshimitsu's opponent, the latter can actually do Bryan's iconic taunt and even get a combo from it!
  • Another neat move hidden from the Command List is Asuka's Ultimate Tackle (DF+3+4,1+2 immediately after a Ki Charge - being all buttons pressed at once). In her debut appearance, it only worked on Jin, but starting from Tekken 6 onward, it now works on the entire roster... including Lili. With Asuka being Asuka, let's just say that she has some... choice words to say to her opponent while she's beating the tar out of them.
    Asuka: Boke! Aho! Shine! (Approximate) Translation 
  • Ganryu can perform a unique tackle after a Ki Charge (1+2+3+4 then 2+3) against Julia which works like his usual tackle... except Julia can slap (press 2 as Julia immediately after being grabbed by Ganryu) him right off and get a very damaging combo for her troubles! Ouch!
    • The kicker? It only works on Julia (or rather Jaycee) as Michelle is completely immune to it in Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
  • Starting from Tekken 6, players can equip various miscellaneous items on their character whose effects will vary depending on the item and/or the character. Such items include:
    • Guns, Knives, and Stop Signs! Oh my! While this is partly expected from Anna, Nina, or Bryan, whom of which aren't exactly the type to play fair, it's hilarious to imagine other characters like Xiaoyu, Yoshimitsu, or even Akuma of all people to be packing heat!
    • A giant, wooden hammer that's almost comically gigantic for Asuka. No points for guessing what that refers to.
    • A cooking wok for Law. Hey, you'd be surprised how effective even a standard wok can be. For both cooking and beating someone to a pulp with!
    • A muay thai headband for Steve, the series' resident boxer. He winds up to kick the opponent in the shin, but ends up hurting himself instead!
    • An explosive teddy bear for Lili. Is this Tekken, or is this Shin Megami Tensei?
    • An umbrella for Jun. When you hold up and the Tag button at the same time while switching to Jun, she'll glide into the arena. Mary Poppins would approve.
    • An air valve (of all things) for Bob, which effectively turns him into a human beach ball!
    • A missile launcher for Anna. While it's given to Katarina in Tekken 7, that doesn't stop Anna from using it in her Rage Art to blow her opponent to smithereens.
    • Instead of an RPG, Anna gets a witch mask in Tag 2 that has her force feed the opponent a mushroom... and then they prance around like idiots before promptly falling on their ass! Yeah, that sounds like it'd be right up Anna's alley, especially if Nina's her opponent.
  • Let's take a trip down memory lane with Masood on what the Tekken games of yore were like.
  • In case you weren't entirely sure on just how strong Combot can be, then maybe this might change your mind.
  • One of Alisa's grab move has her literally hand over her head to her confused enemy, then turn around and duck as the detached head explodes on the enemy's face before Alisa simply regrows another head. And if the enemy counters this grab, they simply place her head back to her neck!
  • Let's just say that Tekken Tag 2 online can be a little stressful if this is anything to go by.
  • Aris and Tasty Steve are considered by many in the Tekken competitive community to be the best commentators out there. Maybe this might be why?
    Aris and Steve: (simultaneously) Ooooh! That's gonna hit!
  • This video just about sums up Tekken 7 Season 3 in a nutshell.
    • And in case Leroy wasn't enough, allow us to bring in Fahkumram for good measure.
  • Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you... Law is OP.
  • Not sure what your Tekken 7 main says about you? Look no further.
  • One of Julia's new victory animations in Tekken 7 has her do some graceful Baji Quan techniques that are befitting of her character... and then we get this:
    Julia: Don't forget to subscribe!
  • That Blasted Salami talks about the various character archetypes that are particularly exclusive to Tekken. It's very professional, to the point, and incredibly helpful, but there are also a few chuckle-worthy moments here and there, too.
    • Starting with the introduction of the Evasive characters:
      Evasive: Harada
    • Characters like Alisa, Kunimitsu, and Noctis are popular enough to warrant their own character archetype. Being the FTTAWSBFTMA.note 
    • You can't help but hear the utter disdain in Arya's voice during the above segment, either...
      Arya: This also encompasses the recent inclusions of projectiles into Tekken 7's meta. The FTTAWSBFTMA characters tend to be defined by their ability to fly through the air with a load of trash with a single button press.
    • The general amount of Caption Humor in the video is also hysterical, too.
      Mix-ups: Rated 50/50
      Grapplers: Free Hugs
      Turtle: Don't Touch
      Rushdown: I'm Mashing


    Tekken 2 
  • 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!

    Tekken 3 
  • 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 has had his fair share of Oh, Crap! moments when things don't go his way, but Jin's ending takes the cake; just as Heihachi is walking away from his seeming execution of Jin after the Ogre was defeated, Devil Jin awakens and pretty much pulps a Tekken Force soldier with a throw into a wall right past Heihachi. The great and mighty Heihachi promptly has a look of abject terror and confusion on his face, and practically seems to be thinking whether turning around was even remotely a good idea at that moment before Laser-Guided Karma hands him his ass on a platter within five seconds flat.
  • There's something oddly hilarious about one of Julia's moves being called Shove It Up (f+1+2 in most games, uf+1 in Tekken 7). Considering who she is, this is can be quite out of character for her. And then there's the fact that the animation itself looks like she's literally giving her opponent the finger!

    Tekken 4 
  • Marshall Law's ending, in which he opens a restaurant, but a couple of customers start complaining about the food and cue a no holds barred beatdown. This causes his restaurant to go out of business, but Law soon gets it back up by turning it into a dojo.
  • Kuma's ending has him cheerfully "signing" papers stating that Heihachi's properties and money will be transferred over to Kuma. However, the last paper states that Kuma will hand over everything back to Heihachi. Kuma dances in excitement, unaware of Heihachi's plan... and slaps Heihachi in the face, leaving him with a big red-inked paw mark on his face. What sells it are Heihachi's face and one of the guards turning away and having a Face Palm/hiding his laughter.
  • Combot's ending has Lee congratulate his creation for his victory in the tournament. Just as they close in towards each other, Combot's eyes start to shine, then he grabs Lee and spanks him away, before celebrating with a pose.
  • In Lei's ending, he slides down a drainpipe in pursuit of Nina; the noises he makes whilst descending are hilarious!
  • In Marduk's ending, Jeff Slater (the current Vale Tudo champion) appears and challenges him to a fight. After a few seconds of Jeff acting like an asshole to him, Craig simply and swiftly KO's him with a single headbutt. "Don't bother getting up" indeed!

    Tekken 5 
  • 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 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.
    • What probably sells it at this point is that neither Asuka or Jin seem to realize that they're cousins, or at that point, they're too busy to not care about it.
  • 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 (Mrs. Roger copies Jin's victory against Hwoarang while Mokujin mimics Wang beating Xiaoyu).
    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!
    Mokujin: Well LOOK who's talking, Mrs. Kangaroo!
    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.
    • It gets funnier once it is revealed that the dojo is inside a space station. And the aliens are already coming.
    Anytime! Anyplace!!! BRING IT ON YA ALIENS!!!!!
    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?
    (Jinpachi turns around, as if now just realizing Paul was there, and gives a single "Yes" nod)
    Paul: TEN SECONDS!!!
    Ten seconds, and I'll be Number 1!!
  • Ganryu's ending: He finally wins his first tournament after 42 years and waits at a harbor to give Julia her data disc and propose to her. She accepts the disc, but as he's about to give her the ring... she had already left! After a long pause, Ganryu raises his head, and gives the best jaw drop ever (Again)!
  • Lei's ending; he fights a criminal on top of a moving bus and handcuffs him. As he's reporting back to HQ, a sign hits him in the back of the head, knocking him off the bus. He's left mumbling that it'll leave a mark...
  • Kuma's ending. He has saved the Mishima Zaibatsu and taken over as the new leader. One of the employees tells him that Heihachi wants to come in. Heihachi thanks Kuma for his work, but as it looks like they are about to embrace, Kuma hits a button on his desk and drops Heihachi into a drop door. As Kuma sits down and prepares to enjoy a nice fish however, Heihachi crawls out of the trap door and pushes the other button on the desk, which drops Kuma in a trap door.
    Tekken 6 
  • 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 (pictured above).
  • Lee's ending in 6. He plays golf, using exploding golf balls, aiming for Heihachi, Kazuya and Jin strapped to rockets.
  • Heihachi and Kuma 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, since every character can be used and it totally changes the dialog for the whole campaign. A few of them:
    • Using Kazuya against Xiaoyu:
    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 Julia against Ganryu:
    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...)
    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.
    • Take Lee into King and Marduk's stage for this gem of an interaction
    Lee: Are you ever going to speak less formally with me?
    Alisa: Like, oh my god! We're going to have, like, so much fun tracking down this Jin dude!
    Lee: Good heavens, stop! I apologize. Please, never speak like that again. Where in the world did you learn that, anyway?
    • 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 that Lili's making friends.
    • Which transitions into Panda's 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.
  • Lei's ending; a purse snatcher runs past as the Supercop is eating noodles. Lei stops him by kicking his chair into him... then he goes to sit back down, forgetting he has no chair anymore and drops a bowl of scalding hot noodles all over him. We don't see that last part, but we definitely hear his scream...
  • The music for the Hidden Retreat, Yodeling in Meadow Hill. One of the goofiest songs ever composed for the series, it very quickly garnered a memetic reputation among the Tekken fanbase.
    • The song eventually made its way to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as one of the songs that is bundled with a DLC Pack containing Kazuya and can be played in the Mishima Dojo stage.
  • Roger Jr.'s ending; Roger was just teaching his son some boxing moves, and after being seemingly impressed by the joey's skills, his ex-wife barges in and shows him a photo of the kangaroo cheating, which angers the female and prompts Roger's "Oh, Crap!" face. This segues into Roger trying to explain himself to his ex to no avail as she punches the male out of the house's roof and into the night sky. Roger Jr. looks utterly confused as to what's going on as the ending movie comes to an end.

    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!
    • When you overcharge your ball, your character is pulled along the lane by it and smashes into the pins. And to really rub it in, they replay it about 12 times with the announcer yelling "GREAT!" Every. Single. Time.
    • The little bit of music that plays when you foul.
  • This commercial.
  • Ganryu's ending has him propose to his beloved Michelle, prompting an epic Jaw Drop when she refuses. It's so epic that it returned for his ending from 5.
  • Forest Law's ending has him and Paul train together, performing the same moves... and accidentally hitting each other in the crotch at the same time. What sells it is the negative shots on their pained expressions as they collapse.
  • Roger and Alex's ending has them playing rock-paper-scissors with Yoshimitsu, without taking off their boxing gloves. As a result, Yoshi wins every time by constantly playing paper.
  • Nina has a move where she kicks the opponent in the crotch. Everyone grunts in pain when it's performed on them. Bryan Fury laughs.

    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 Heartwarming Moment, 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. Which could even be why they all agreed to it. There's gotta be something they can compete against each other for.
    • 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 due to Heihachi leaning in and slurping it right off of his chopsticks.
  • 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!
    • When the group are busy talking about their robotic upgrades like a bunch of excited school children. The screen shows that Jinpachi wants the spikes in his beard to be replaced with chainsaws!!!
    • 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 and Ganryu clearly being excited and overjoyed with their idea..
  • 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 smugglers 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 nonchalant 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 the 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."
    • During stage 1 of Fight Lab, Ganryu acts as an obstacle for Combot to avoid; he does this by inexplicably flying across the stage like a missile. Despite Ganryu moving slowly enough to be easily spotted, Violet's dialogue indicates he is only vaguely aware of another presence in the room.
  • 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.
    • The split second shot of Kuma's drool smacking one of the girl's in face.
  • 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?
  • 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: have Panda hold Alisa's head in place and draw Alisa's body using the booth's touchscreen, 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 headless 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:
  • 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 goodbye 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 skillfully 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.
  • Some of the Tag Throws can be this.
  • A Continue? screen with Kazuya and Jun will have them acting like a nagging wife and a lazy husband.
  • One of Marshall Law and Paul's special win poses includes a call back to Law's Tekken 2 ending, except Paul instead actually succeeds to complete his back-flip. Both are surprised and overjoyed by this, and excitedly celebrate.

    Tekken Revolution 
  • 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.

    Tekken 7 
  • 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.
    • In The Stinger of the trailer, we cut to Miguel going "WOOHOO!", which is considerable Mood Whiplash to the no-nonsense badass he was in the rest of the trailer.
  • 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.
  • This official recap trailer, which is 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 Kazuya stands in the middle of rare animals crawling around his evil looking office.
    • Jun revealing she's pregnant, Kazuya responds "Gotta go" then leaves.
    • Jin happily introducing himself as Heihachi's grandson when looking for training.
    • Heihachi repeatedly attacking people.
    • "Betrayal" being a sound effect.
    • Part two! Featuring Lars' exchange with Azazel:
    Azazel: Fear my wrath for I am God! RAWR!!
    Lars: Your face is dumb!
  • In Story Mode, during the cutscene fight between Heihachi and Akuma, the two throw each other around the room before Akuma unleashes a Gouhadouken. When Heihachi sees it, all he can say is "What the hell?".
  • When Akuma moves against Kazuya in the G. Corp Tower, he is greeted by several G. Corp Mooks pointing their guns at him. Considering what happened with Heihachi earlier, you'd expect this to result in Akuma inflicting a Mook Horror Show on the poor soldiers... only for Kazuya to chime in over the speakers, telling his men that Akuma is way beyond their capabilities, and to send him up on the elevator already so he can basically just get the fight over with.
  • Paul's story fight. He's excited that for once he's not fighting Kuma again and looks forward to actually fighting a human opponent... only to find out he's fighting Panda. And when he wins and starts with his normal showboating, the crowd starts booing and shouting that they like Panda better than him, then start throwing things at him, including a broadsword that nearly hits him in a sensitive place.
  • Asuka's story fight with Lili. She's happy she won and perhaps finally ended the stupid rivalry. Then Lili announces that she's just purchased Asuka's dojo and house and will be living with her from now on. Poor Asuka doesn't have the slightest idea what to make of it.
  • Lucky Chloe's story fight against Eddy. After she beats him, she press-gangs him into being her backup dancer, kicking him whenever he gets a move wrong. Then she informs him that when they're actually performing, he'll have to wear a girly costume. Cue the Big "NO!"!
  • In Leo's ending, after defeating Yoshimitsu, she inspects him, before resuming her mission and calls him "Weird Octopus Guy".
    • In Yoshitmitsu's ending however, after defeating Leo, he notices her androgynous appearance until he he notices she stopped beating and resuscitates her. When she wakes up, she freaks out and gives him a Groin Attack, and starts running, shouting "Help! A weird Octopus guy is after me!". The next scene shows the Mishima statue glaring at him.
  • Jack 7's ending, which plays out like an ode to Chuck Jones. Having beaten King in the King of the Iron Fist tournament, Jack is standing on top of the G Corporation building. He reads over a typed letter from Kazuya, which states that he's now the "Chief Humanoid Weapon" (with a monthly allowance of $25.00 for personal expenses). Jack quakes in excitement, before breaking out into a few of his signature flexes to celebrate. While he's doing this, Lucky Chloe comes along and bumps into him, causing the paper to fly out of Jack's hands. The combat android then starts trying to catch it as it flutters through the air, with Chloe watching in confusion. Finally, he leaps out and snatches it between his hands. Then we look back through Chloe's perspective, as Jack hangs in the air over the edge of the building, before dropping like a stone. Chloe dismisses it all with a "whatever" and walks off, just as a pillar of smoke rises from the edge of the building.
  • Eliza's ending, where she was revealed to be Lili's elder sister. Eliza tries to deny this, even calling Lili "millennia too young to be a sister", only to fall asleep mid-sentence. Lili constantly tries to wake her up, and Eliza continued denying the claim...only to fall asleep again. Lili finally comes up with a solution to her sleepiness: Less blood, more coffee.
    • What makes it hilarious is when the music starts to get intense during Eliza's speech, it deepens and stops dramatically every time Eliza falls asleep, and goes back to normal when she wakes up, and stops again when she falls asleep again.
  • While it veers straight into Black Comedy, the lead up to Heihachi and Kazuya's climactic showdown unexpectedly revolves around mutual mainstream media PR disasters. This includes Heihachi setting up Kazuya to be attacked by Akuma so he record Kazuya activating his devil powers, broadcasting the footage worldwide to ruin the public's trust in him, and blowing up Millennium Tower with a satellite laser cannon. Kazuya counters this by blowing up the satellite with his devil laser, resulting with the falling debris destroying a city, and the media blaming the Zaibatsu for downing their own satellite. Not only does trigger mass anti-Mishima protests, but also makes people forget about Kazuya transforming into a devil.
  • Two Words: Bowling minigame. Yes, it's back from Tekken Tag Tournament and Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection.
  • NOCTIS being a DLC fighter is funny enough just for how bizarre it is (on top of the FFXV/Assassin's Creed crossover) But how is Noctis added to the fight? He just runs away from Prompto, Ignis, and Gladio by claiming he has to do a favor. They just look confused.
    • The end of the trailer has Noctis fishing with a Tekken character. Yep. Apparently Tekken and 15 share a universe... because of fishing.
  • There was a crossover event with The Idolmaster featuring their costumes for female characters to wear. The trailer first showed Paul Phoenix with the outfit... and then later said it wasn't included in the event.
    • Which makes it funnier that some fans are a bit disappointed they don't get to see Paul in an iDOLM@STER costume.
  • The 2018 Tekken World Tour ended with a Dark Horse Victory for Panda. When Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada came out to congratulate the winners and reveal the new characters, he showed that he felt the same way as much of the audience:
    Harada: Eh... Panda. Panda. REALLY?!
  • The Negan gameplay trailer from the 2018 Tekken World Tour ends with Bob doing his intro, complete with Catchphrase "Speed and weight!" Negan just responds "Speed? You?! (laughs) You better be jokin'!" Bob starts crying and Negan turns away with a "Well, that just happened" expression on his face.
  • The trailer announcing Negan's release date ends with the man threatening Harada himself, calling the man out for releasing characters one at a time. He also says Harada's Catchphrase "Don't ask me for shit!" during the trailer itself.
  • For the release of new DLC character Leroy Smith, Harada got himself invited to the proverbial cookout... to Harada's confusion. He admitted that he liked barbecue, but didn't know what it meant or what made it special. Cue a long discussion with Black Twitter about what that meant and entailed.
  • At the end of Ganryu's reveal trailer, one of the things that he does at the end is imitate Julia's "Stream is over!" win pose. Julia's reaction? A mix of disgust and seething fury.
    • Then there's the special interaction between the two in a fight. Ganryu can do an input that has him run (across the entire stage) to hug Julia, only for her to push herself away from him and, if Julia is mashing a certain button, will slap Ganryu. Dealing massive damage.

    Tekken 8 
  • Harada has a special message of the announcement at The Video Game Awards 2022:
    Harada: Don't ask me for shi
  • From a meta standpoint, some of the Accidental Innuendos that arise from the game's new Heat mechanic can lead to these. After all, the only succinct way one can describe the state is, well, that the opponent is in Heat. ...You can probably imagine how tournament commentaries would play out as a result.
