Pictures coming soon!

Introduced in Tekken

Anna Williams
Anna Williams (アンナ・ウィリアムズ Anna Wiriamuzu?) was featured in Nina's Arcade mode ending, in which she accuses Nina of stealing one of her shoes. She was also featured as Nina's sub-boss in Tekken, but did not become a usable character until the console version of the game. Anna, like all of the other sub-bosses in the first Tekken game, was not given an ending.
As in the first tournament, Nina was once again hired to assassinate the sponsor of the current tournament, Kazuya Mishima. Whether at Kazuya's discretion or Anna's own volition, Anna became a bodyguard for Kazuya, along with Ganryu and Bruce Irvin, who were all charged with Kazuya's protection. It is likely that Anna's intervention prevented her sister from carrying out her contract, and Nina was later captured by Mishima Zaibatsu forces and used in Doctor Boskonovitch's cryonics ('cold-sleep') research. Learning about this, Anna volunteered to be another test subject, requesting that she be woken in the future at the same time as Nina. Her reasons for doing so remain ambiguous, though the game suggests that Anna would have felt lonely without Nina and/or jealous at the thought of her sister's youth being preserved.
After being placed in suspended animation during the second tournament, Nina was awoken 18 years later by the influence of the recently excavated Ogre, who compelled her to assassinate Jin Kazama. As per her request, Anna was awoken at the same time as her sister, though she was unaffected by Ogre's influence. Nina also began to suffer ill effects from the 'cold-sleep', resulting in long term memory loss. In an act of compassion, Anna set out to stop Nina from once again becoming an assassin, and to help her recover her memory loss.
NOTE: Anna only appears as a playable character in the console release of Tekken 3. In the arcade version, she was an alternate costume for Nina, and therefore had the same moves as her.
Nina decides to make contact with Anna in hopes of restoring her memory. Unfortunately, their meeting triggers Nina's lost feelings of hostility towards her sister, and she immediately opens fire. Anna retaliates, and the reunion descends into a gunfight which lasts for days. The sisters eventually reach a stalemate and agree to settle things for good at The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. A portion of their gunfight can be seen in the introductory sequence of the game.
After being defeated by her sister Nina, Anna seeks revenge. However, Nina has already gone into hiding. Anna hears rumors she has become Jin Kazama's new bodyguard, thus being involved with the Mishima Zaibatsu, so Anna decides to join forces with G Corporation.
GameDaily listed Anna as one of their top 50 hottest female characters in video games, placing her at number 47 on the list.[1]
She will also appear in the movie verison of Tekken portrayed by Marian Zapico.

Armor King
Armor King (アーマー・キング Āmā Kingu?) is a member of a Mexican tribe who carries around the Jaguar masks that both King and Armor King wear. After a fateful meeting, in which the original King was inducted into Armor King's tribe, Armor King challenged him to a battle of strength. While Armor King was clearly the superior fighter, the battle ended with King escaping and with Armor King's eye being damaged in the process. However, near the beginning of the second tournament, the two set aside their differences and became great friends.
Armor King travels from one wrestling ring to another, searching for a worthy challenger. Armor King watched with interest at King's attempt to win the first tournament in need of money for his orphanage. Although King did not win the tournament, he won third place, giving him enough money to build his orphanage. Soon after a child dies in his care, King ran away, choosing the path of the drunkard. Armor King saw a total change in his old rival as King no longer entered any wrestling tournaments and disappeared for long periods of time. Armor King became worried about his friend/rival and intervened just in time, as King was at the edge of a breakdown. Finding King distraught and drunk in an alleyway, he convinces him to get back into the spirit of fighting and enter the second tournament. Meeting King at the tournament, he defeated him, despite the other fighter's resolve and new techniques. Telling him of his orphanage, he bids King to return to his foster children.
The first King was attacked and supposedly killed by Ogre. However, Armor King saw a new fighter with a jaguar mask step into the wrestling ring in order to save the orphanage, and Armor King decides to train him to become the second King. He only appeared in The Tekken 3 Intro and King's Tekken 3 Ending.
Before The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4, Craig Marduk started a bar brawl in Arizona, and Armor King was (supposedly) killed. This is the extent of his involvement in this game, as he does not make an actual appearance, but instead becomes King's reason for entering the tournament, for revenge.
The character returns for the update to Tekken 5 and participates in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. Whether or not it is the man whom Marduk supposedly killed or another man who has taken up the mantle of Armor King (and who issued the challenge against King before the fifth tournament) has yet to be revealed.
During The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, Armor King attacks Craig Marduk and vanishes, but resurfaces later on to participate in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6, unaware that both King and Marduk are pursuing him to learn his true identity.

Dr. Boskonovitch
Dr. Boskonovitch (ドクター・ボスコノビッチ Dokutā Bosukonobitchi?) originally worked for the Mishima Zaibatsu. During the first Tekken, the Manji ninja clan (lead by Yoshimitsu) raided the Mishima Zaibatsu's vault. During the raid, Yoshimitsu lost his arm and was found by Boskonovitch who helped him escape. He was kidnapped by Kazuya Mishima in the run-up to Tekken 2 and was forced to work for him. Some of the many projects involved the creation of the bio-weapons Roger and Alex and the completion of the Prototype Jack unit. He began the "Cold Sleep" project as a means of preserving his daughter's body (who seemingly died) by using Nina and Anna Williams as test subjects. After completing his tasks, and before being executed, Dr. Boskonovitch was rescued by Yoshimitsu. Nearly twenty years later, he contracted a rare disease that affects the spine. In order to cure himself and to revive his daughter, he needed the blood of the fighting god, Ogre. He turned to an old friend: Yoshimitsu for help. Yoshimtsu entered the Tekken 3 tournament and was successful in retrieving a sample of Ogre's blood after it had been killed by Jin Kazama.
During Tekken 4, Yoshimitsu found an injured Bryan Fury. He brought him to the doctor to save him. Boskonovitch explained to Bryan that he would mechanize him and allow him to be completely reborn in a new incarnation. Bryan lays supine in the chair and Boskonovitch held a gun-shaped device containing sleeping gas. Bidding him sweet dreams, he injected the gas into Bryan. Throughout, he spoke in a very gentle, paternal tone and was very calm. However, the doctor found Bryan's body too complex, and he instead installed a perpetual generator. Bryan proceeded to attack the doctor, as well as Manji Clan members who were with him. While the members were slain, Boskonovitch survived, though he was severely injured. In Tekken 6, he creates an android in his daughters image.

Ganryu (巌竜 Ganryū?) was banned from the sumo ring after he was caught fixing fights in his favor. Blackballed from the only sport that he was capable of fighting in, Ganryu ended up being employed by Heihachi Mishima in Tekken. He fights Yoshimitsu who defeats him and steals his ill-gotten money. Later, he works for Kazuya Mishima in Tekken 2. Entering the second King of Iron Fist Tournament, Ganryu ended up falling in love with Michelle Chang - a love that Michelle was oblivious to, believing Ganryu to be a disgusting, woman-crazed madman. After Michelle defeated him, and the disappearance of Kazuya, Ganryu returned to Japan.
However, his ban from Sumo was lifted, and he became the youngest ever Rikishi. Among the dialogue in Tekken 5, it is stated that Ganryu has never won a championship. After the events of Tekken 2, Ganryu opened a sumo stable and worked as a trainer to other sumo wrestlers. He did this to finally forget about Michelle. One day, while watching a televised showing of the King of Iron Fist Tournament 4, he spotted Julia Chang as one of the competitors. Remarking how much she looked like his old crush, Michelle, Ganryu decided to enter the fifth tournament, convinced that he would win Julia's heart if he recovered her lost Forest Rejuvenation Data.
During the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, Ganryu loses his way and gets lost. By accident, he enters the lab of the Mishima Zaibatsu and finds the Forest Rejuvenation datathe very data that Julia Chang was searching for. With it in hand, he hopes to finally be able to propose to Julia and make her his wife. However, during their meeting, Julia received the disc and left before Ganryu got the chance to propose. Putting the episode behind him, Ganryu moves to Hawaii and opens a restaurant, Chanko Paradise. However, the management is poor and the restaurant is not getting anywhere. Knowing that another The King of Iron Fist Tournament is being held, Ganryu decides to enter in hopes of advertising his restaurant.

Jack (ジャック Jakku?) is a series of androids created by the Mishima Zaibatsu and G Corporation for different purposes:
Jack is the original model, and was created by the Mishima Zaibatsu in order to counter a coup from Kazuya Mishima in the King of Iron Fist Tournament.
Jack-2 is the upgrade of Jack, also created by the Mishima Zaibatsu. One of these models, while on a battlefront, witnesses a young girl named Jane lose her mother, and takes it upon himself to look after her until he is destroyed by Dr. Abel.
Gun Jack is a more advanced prototype of the android, created by Jane in an attempt to revive her friend, Jack-2. While she is successful in implanting Jack-2's memories inside him, he is destroyed by gunfire by the Tekken Forces after he and Jane attempt to break into the Mishima Zaibatsu labs.
Jack-4 is an upgrade of Gun Jack, created by G Corporation. While these never participated in any tournament, they were sent by G Corporation to kill Kazuya Mishima after they no longer needed him, and the subsequent battle in Hon-Maru almost resulted in the death of Heihachi Mishima. These specific models have a self-destruct device embedded in them, indicated when the face peels away to reveal a countdown.
Jack-5 is an upgrade of Jack-4, created by Jane to participate in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. His fate is currently unknown.
Jack-6 is an upgrade of Jack-5, created by G Corporation with the mission of destroying the Mishima Zaibatsu in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6.
The two other notable Jack models that appear in the series are Prototype Jack and Gun-Jack.
GameDaily placed Jack 24th on their "Top 25 Video Game Robots" list, stating "While not the most popular character in the Tekken series, Jack punched its way to become a worthy opponent."[2]

Kazuya Mishima
According to Namco's official backstory, Kazuya Mishima is the son of Heihachi Mishima, the long-time Chief Executive Officer of the Mishima Zaibatsu: a powerful worldwide conglomerate and its various subsidiaries. He is also the grandson of Jinpachi Mishima, foster brother of Lee Chaolan through the adoption of Heihachi Mishima and father of Jin Kazama, having had a relationship with Jun Kazama.
When Kazuya was a five years old child, he was thrown off of a cliff by his father, who claimed that his son was weak. If Kazuya was to be his father's successor to the Mishima Zaibatsu throne, he was to not only survive the fall, but climb back up the rocky cliff as well. Kazuya nearly died from the ordeal, but his survival was assured through a deal with the Devil, who promised him enough power to take his revenge on his father.
In the years prior to the events of the original Tekken, Kazuya entered martial arts tournaments all over the world, becoming an undefeated champion (only Paul Phoenix ever managed a draw with him.) When the first King of Iron Fist Tournament was announced, Kazuya took the opportunity for vengeance. It is during the tournament that the original game takes place.

Though all Tekken games feature multiple endings, the main plot of the first Tekken assumes that Kazuya's is a "correct" ending. According to this ending, he overcomes all opponents and battles Heihachi in the final round. Apathetic towards the tournament's proposed one billion dollar prize and fueled by his hatred for his father, Kazuya wins and drops Heihachi's unconscious body from the same cliff he had been thrown from as a child.

Tekken 2
Tekken 2 then picks up two years afterward. In this story, the Zaibatsu has become more corrupt than ever under Kazuya's leadership and engaged in many illegal activities such as assassination, extortion, drug dealing and the smuggling of endangered species. A second King of Iron Fist Tournament is also announced. Heihachi, having survived both his battle with Kazuya and the subsequent fall, enters the tournament, having trained and meditated in the hills after his defeat. This time, Tekken 2 assumes that Heihachi's ending is correct, and thus the official story states that he reclaims the Mishima Zaibatsu by defeating his son. Afterwards, Heihachi throws Kazuya into the mouth of an erupting volcano, killing him supposedly.

Absence from Tekken 3
The story for Tekken 3 begins by stating that, before his defeat at the hands of Heihachi, Kazuya became intimate with Jun Kazama, who conceived their son, Jin Kazama.

Kazuya does not appear as a playable character in Tekken 3, but he appears in Eddy Gordo's ending in a photo, and Eddy realizes that he is the man behind the murder of his father. He also appears alongside Jun Kazama in the game's alternate intro.

Tekken Tag Tournament
Kazuya also appears in the non-canonical game, Tekken Tag Tournament. Though he is featured prominently within promotional art and packaging for the game, it bears no weight on the series' official story.

Kazuya's return in Tekken 4
Kazuya returns as a central character in Tekken 4. His prologue in the game states that he was revived by G Corporation, a rival genetics company of the Mishima Zaibatsu, a few days after his supposed death. Kazuya allows the company to perform various experiments on him in order to learn the true nature of the Devil Gene within his body (although he does not know that they are only using him and plan to kill him afterwards), but an attack on the research facility by the Tekken Force twenty-one years later (sent by Heihachi to retrieve Kazuya's remains for the Devil Gene) impedes further success. Kazuya fights the Tekken Forces off, and vows to get his revenge on Heihachi in the recently announced King of Iron Fist Tournament 4, and at the same time, extract the half of his Devil Gene stored in the body of his son, Jin Kazama.
Kazuya makes it to the finals and asks Heihachi: " What have you done to Jin Kazama". Heihachi replies: " I will tell you after the fight." Kazuya was defeated[1] and Heihachi, keeping his word, leads Kazuya to Hon-Maru, a Mishima compound where Jin is being held captive (he was captured by the Tekken Forces on his way to fight Kazuya in the seventh stage). Kazuya, influenced by Devil, knocks Heihachi out of the room with his psychic powers and subconsciously taunts Jin in order to wake him up. However, the plan backfires, and an enraged Jin defeats both Kazuya and Heihachi in battle, but spares their lives after seeing a vision of his mother, after which he takes flight.

Tekken 5
Moments after Jin's departure from Hon-Maru, Kazuya and Heihachi are assaulted by a squadron of Jack-4s sent to assassinate them by G Corporation (no longer needing him, they betrayed Kazuya). Kazuya manages to flee and left his father to die (although Heihachi survives). Vowing to get revenge on G Corporation for their treachery, Kazuya enters the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, in which he discovers his father's survival and the sponsor of the tournament: Jinpachi Mishima.

Tekken 6
Despite not winning the fifth tournament, Kazuya discovers the division of G Corporation that tried to kill him, and kills them all in revenge, becoming the head of the company and using it as the only powerful opposition to the Mishima Zaibatsu, led by Jin, who has begun world conquest and declared war on several nations. By this time, the world's population sees G Corporation as its only saviour though Kazuya's real purpose is to kill Jin and take over the world himself, and Kazuya uses the company's influence to his advantage: to stop Jin from taking over his plans for world domination, Kazuya places a bounty on Jin's head for whomever could manage to capture him alive and decides to enter the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 (announced by Jin) to settle the score once and for all with his son.

Kuma (クマ Kuma?, lit. "Bear")is Heihachi Mishima's pet. Raised and trained in the Mishima style of fighting arts, Kuma became an avid bodyguard for his master. In the first two tournaments, Kuma enters to defeat Paul Phoenix. However, he loses to Paul in both tournaments, and shortly after, he dies of old age, leaving behind a young cub, who becomes a bodyguard in his place for Heihachi.
Learning of his father's defeat, Kuma Jr. decides to train with his master and enter The King of Iron Fist Tournament 3. However, he fails, and realizes that due to his docile upbringing by Heihachi, he could not utilize his animal instincts to his full potential. Leaving Heihachi, Kuma Jr. travels to the mountains of Hokkaidō to train himself, both mentally and physically.
Now hearing of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4, Kuma enters, more powerful than ever to defeat Paul. He succeeds, and he quickly returns home in triumph.
Now learning that Jinpachi Mishima has taken over the Mishima Zaibatsu, Kuma once again takes his role of the loyal pet, vowing to return the syndicate to Heihachi by entering the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, but he is defeated by Paul.
After the death of his former master, Heihachi Mishima, Kuma believed no one but he could rescue the Mishima Financial Group (MFG) from its captor. Eager to do just that, Kuma confronted the MFG. However, the MFG's new CEO, Jin Kazama, was waiting. Kuma was easily beaten and discarded in the Hokkaido wilderness. Though defeated, his fighting spirit was not lost.

Kunimitsu (州光 Kunimitsu?) also known as "The Cat Devil", was a former member of the Manji clan of ninja bandits led by Yoshimitsu. She lost her Japanese identity when she joined the group to maintain her anonymity. Upon joining, she was taught the skills of the stealth knife and Manji-style ninjutsu. She stayed with the group for a few months, until a series of petty thefts from the band's funds led to her dismissal. At a loose end, she decided to train as a mechanic mending air conditioners. She entered the first King of Iron Fist Tournament intending to steal a Native American treasure from a young brave Michelle Chang. Kunimitsu, fearing the wrath of the vengeful Michelle, went into hiding.
Feeling humiliated, Kunimitsu sought solace with her grandfather. He was a swordsmith with a reputation. He informed Kunimitsu that the sword used by Yoshimitsu is a relic of unimaginable value. She learned that it was handed down through the Manji band and it had the power to sever an enemy both spiritually and mentally. The sword exchanges hands when a new leader is elected. The old leader is ritually sacrificed and the sword's power is transferred to its new owner. Kunimitsu's grandfather has spent his entire existence trying to forge a copy of the sword. Kunimitsu had to enter the second tournament to face and defeat Yoshimitsu and claim the sword so that her grandfather could make a copy before his death.

Heihachi Mishima
Heihachi is the son of Jinpachi Mishima, the father of Kazuya Mishima, the adopted father of Lee Chaolan, and the grandfather of Jin Kazama. He is also an ascendant of Lars Alexandersson. He fights with the power of Mishima Style Fighting Karate and is the founder and the Commander of the Tekken Force Unit. He has hosted half of the King of the Iron Fist Tournaments with the second, fifth and sixth King of Iron Fist Tournaments being hosted by Kazuya, Jinpachi, and Jin respectively.

[edit] Tekken plot history
In an attempt to eliminate his son's "weakness", Heihachi tossed Kazuya down a deep ravine, claiming that if he were truly his son, he'd be able to survive the fall and climb back up. Kazuya survived, but only because he made a deal with the Devil. To further motivate Kazuya, Heihachi adopted Chinese orphan Lee and raised him as a rival to his true son. After Kazuya had traveled abroad and became an undefeated champion, Heihachi announced the King of Iron Fist Tournament in order to test him. Kazuya won the tournament, tossed Heihachi off the same cliff and assumed control of the Zaibatsu. Heihachi survived the event, and returned in the second tournament to defeat his son, and tossed Kazuya's body into a volcano to kill him. Later, he created a military force called the Tekken Force, and fifteen years after the end of the second tournament, in Central Mexico ruins they discovered Ogre, a creature with bloodlust for strong fighters. Seeking to create the ultimate lifeform from the creature, Heihachi took in his grandson Jin Kazama, trained him, and four years later announced the third Iron Fist tournament as bait. Ogre arrived and was defeated by Jin, only for Heihachi to in turn betray and attempt to kill him. Jin survived, transformed into a demon, attacked Heihachi and flew away.

Afterwards, Heihachi attempted to combine his own DNA with that of Ogre, but discovered that he would need the Devil Gene as a catalyst, held by both his son and Jin. Unable to find Jin, Heihachi learned Kazuya had been resurrected by G Corporation, a rival company. To lure both to him, he held the fourth King of Iron Fist Tournament with his very company's ownership as the grand prize. After the Tekken Force captured Jin upon arrival, Heihachi faced Kazuya in the finals. Heihachi defeated Kazuya,[2] and led him to his Hon-Maru compound, where Jin was being held captive so they could fight. However Jin was able to defeat both, assumed his demon form and almost killed Heihachi. Stopped by a vision of his mother, Jin instead left, telling Heihachi he owed his life to her, flying through the compound's roof.

Immediately after Jin's departure, an army of Jack-4s built and sent by G Corporation invaded Hon-Maru. Heihachi fought together against them with Kazuya, but Kazuya betrayed and threw his father to the Jack-4s, using the diversion to escape. The Jack-4s piled onto Heihachi and one self-destructed, destroying Hon-Maru and seemingly killing Heihachi. However the blast had instead thrown him for several miles where he remained unconscious for the duration of the fifth tournament. Upon waking up, he made his way back to the Zaibatsu headquarters only for troops to block his path and to learn Jin had taken over the company. As a result he enters the sixth tournament in order to recover control of his company.

King (I)
King is a famous luchador from Mexico. There are actually two Kings in the series, both of whom wore a jaguar mask in matches.
The first used to be a ruthless street brawling orphan with no care in the world except fighting. In one of his fights, King was grievously wounded and collapsed in front of a monastery. The Marquez priests saved him from death. After recovering, King realized the error of his ways and resolved to start a new life. He became a Catholic priest and renounced his old fighting ways. He then became a man with a mission; he dreamed of building an orphanage for street children, hoping to save them from becoming the kind of person he used to be.
King has one problem, however. He lacks the necessary funds to achieve his dream. King discovers The King of Iron Fist Tournament and hopes to win the prize money. King enters the tournament and manages to get third place, winning enough prize money for the orphanage. He also met his rival, Armor King.
King won enough money and had his orphanage, which became very successful. After a child died in his care, King became depressed and, giving up his jaguar mask, returned to the street and became a raging alcoholic. He would have perished had he not been convinced by his old friend and rival, Armor King, to again wear the jaguar mask and join The King of Iron Fist Tournament 2.
King trained intensely and recovered from his alcoholism. He battled Armor King at the tournament and lost. After the tournament, King participated in both pro-wrestling and martial arts tournaments to win money for his orphanage. He also taught his fighting skills to the children under his care as a means of self-defense.
Sometime later on, Ogre, the God of Fighting, was awakened from an ancient ruin in Mexico by Heihachi Mishima's Tekken Force. Ogre attacked several martial artists around the world, including King, who was supposedly killed afterwards.

Lee Chaolan
Lee Chaolan (李 超狼 Rī Chaoran?) is Kazuya Mishima's foster brother, and Heihachi Mishima's adopted son. Lee's parents died when he was a young child, leaving him to fend for himself on the streets. Facing a hostile environment each day, Lee quickly became a skilled scrapper with reflexes that were amazing for a boy of his age. It was these qualities that caught the eye of Heihachi, who witnessed Lee fighting off several other kids while on a business trip. Impressed by his natural ability, Heihachi decided to adopt Lee, and took him back to Japan to be educated. It is not known if he actually felt any emotion towards the orphan; it has been suggested that he simply raised him to replace his blood son Kazuya, whom he had at first considered to be too weak to inherit the Zaibatsu. Another possibility is that Heihachi wanted to give Kazuya a rival to inspire him to shape up.
Before the events of the original Tekken, Heihachi sent Lee to the U.S. to handle the Mishima Zaibatsu's operations there, and to continue his business education. While Heihachi trained Kazuya in the art of Mishima Style Fighting Karate, Lee studied with Paul Phoenix and Marshall Law in the U.S. This is the reason for some of the moves that Lee shares with Paul Phoenix and Marshall Law.
When Kazuya took the Zaibatsu from Heihachi, Lee decided to work with his brother. Considering the rather demeaning position he received (is known by Kazuya as his secretary), it can be assumed that he did so only to be in a good position to overthrow Kazuya should the chance present itself. Lee was known to be the boss of Kazuya's cadre of personal bodyguards (Anna Williams, Bruce Irvin, Ganryu), and he also supervised Doctor Boskonovitch's projects for creating the ultimate military animal for Kazuya.
Lee fought in the second King of Iron Fist Tournament, his intention being to snatch the Zaibatsu from Kazuya. However, Heihachi returned from his supposed demise and defeated both Lee and Kazuya; he threw the latter into the mouth of an active volcano, and banished his adopted son from any aspect of his life or the Zaibatsu on the threat of death. Lee remained in Japan for a time afterwards, plotting to assassinate Heihachi as an act of retribution. However, he eventually came to the epiphany that it was a waste to murder an old man, who probably had only a few more years to live anyways. Thus, he left for America once again, and began setting the foundations for his longtime ambition; a robotics corporation. More importantly, he decided to distance himself from fighting; ultimately, he went into seclusion in the Bahamas to amass his own fortune.
Sometime before The King of Iron Fist Tournament 3, Lee was apparently one of the fighters that was attacked by Ogre, as Ogre has some of Lee's moves (including "Shin to Head Kick".). However, as he appears alive and well in Tekken 4 and Tekken 5, if he was attacked by Ogre, it's clear that Lee survived the attack.
Returning in the fourth tournament, Lee is a successful businessman and C.E.O. of his now flourishing robotics corporation. He lives his days behind the sun-bathed walls of his Bahamas mansion, dividing his time between trading stocks online and simply relaxing, seemingly without a care in the world. Then one day, he discovers a huge selloff of G Corporation's stock online; he goes on to learn that it was triggered by an attack on its main research lab by the Mishima Zaibatsu's Tekken Force. Days later, the 4th Iron Fist tournament was announced. Lee senses that something is amiss; but at the same time his fading passion for fighting is rekindled, along with his fierce resentment for the Mishima clan. He decides to enter the tournament. As a precaution that the Zaibatsu would not figure out his identity too early, he enters online under the name "Violet", and he dyes his silver hair purple and sports sunglasses. [3]
It is suggested that Lee was rather successful and made it to the later phases of the tournament. However, he is shocked to see that his next opponent is none other than Kazuya, who was resurrected by G Corporation many years ago. Losing his focus, Lee is defeated by his foster brother, who goes on to face Heihachi.He is one of the few characters in which Heihachi isn't the boss because his last enemy is Combot. [4]
In the confusion surrounding the death of Heihachi, Lee was scheming to take over the Mishima Zaibatsu but was enraged when he learned that someone else had already beat him to it. Lee, believing it was Kazuya who usurped the Mishima Zaibatsu, was vexed that Kazuya had once again stood in his way. A month later, the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 was announced and Lee immediately decided to enter. Lee was determined to settle the score with Kazuya in the tournament and claim the Mishima Zaibatsu.[4]
Lee took part in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 in order to take revenge on Kazuya Mishima. However, the one who had opened the tournament was not Kazuya, but Jinpachi Mishima, and Lee, after learning this fact, lost interest in the tournament and returned to his mansion in the Bahamas. Soon afterwards, the MFG, led by Jin Kazama brought the world to chaos, and around the same time G Corporation became a major opposition. Surprised by G Corporation's sudden military action, Lee, being a major shareholder, conducted a private investigation with the utmost secrecy and discovered that Kazuya had become the real power behind G Corporation actions. After obtaining information that Kazuya himself would take part in this tournament, Lee used a shareholder's preferential treatment ticket, and entered the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 in order to get close to Kazuya.
Lee Chaolan will appear in the movie version of Tekken, portrayed by Taiyou Suigara

Marshall Law
Marshall Law (マーシャル・ロウ Māsharu Rou?) is a Chinese American that fights using various martial arts. Sometimes known as "The Fighting Chef", he is a close friend of Paul Phoenix, and he is the father of Forest Law.
Marshall enters the first King of Iron Fist Tournament in order to gain enough money so he could start his own dojo. He does win enough money for his dojo as a runner-up and took Wang Jinrei to a draw. He is indeed married as "Mrs. Law" is seen in Yoshimitsu's ending.
In Tekken 2, Law enters the tournament to exact his revenge on the Taekwondo fighter Baek Doo San, who attacked Law's pupils and destroyed his dojo.
Marshall declined to participate in this tournament. Afterwards, Paul and Law fall out somewhat after Paul convinces Marshall's son, Forest, to enter The King of Iron Fist Tournament 3.
Before Tekken 4, Law finds success as the master of a martial arts dojo, and as the owner of a restaurant chain called "Marshall China", back in the USA. However, a incident involving a customer and some food with rival restaurant chain openings drives him to bankruptcy, and he falls into a depressed, alcoholic state. However, when The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4 is announced, he beats himself back into shape to compete in the tournament, determined to pick up his business again.
At the end of Tekken 4, after Law fails to win the tournament, he is completely broke, and he now works as a dishwasher at a restaurant in Japan. Just before the events of Tekken 5, he receives a phone call from his wife in America. She informs him that Forest was badly hurt in an accident while riding on Paul Phoenix's motorcycle. Marshall enters the 5th Iron Fist tournament in order to pay his son's medical bills.
During the middle of the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, it was discovered that Marshall Law was working illegally in Japan, and as a result he was immediately deported to his home country of the United States of America. With the deadline to pay for the damages of his son's accident fast approaching, hopes of getting the money needed were slim. Just then, his best friend Paul Phoenix approached him with the idea of forming a teamsecuring a high-ranking prize alone would certainly be difficult, but if he was part of a team, the probability of winning would be much higher. Marshall accepted Paul's invite, but thinking a three-man team was better than two, the renowned boxer Steve Fox caught his attention.
When the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 was announced he entered hoping he would win the tournament this time to finish paying Forest's hospital bill. This time he has backup in Paul Phoenix and Steve Fox and believes they are sure to win.
Marshall bares a very close resemblance in both appearance and fighting style to Chinese American martial arts legend Bruce Lee. His costumes resemble several of the costumes worn by Lee in various films, such as the yellow track suit worn in Game of Death and the black pants with no shirt worn in Enter the Dragon. Marshall also has three scars on his chest which resemble the cuts received by Lee in Enter the Dragon.
The fighting style used by Marshall Law appears to be heavily based on Jeet Kune Do, an art created by Bruce Lee. His move list includes many of Bruce Lee's popularized moves including the One Inch Punch and the jumping side kick. In Tekken 6, Marshall Law's fighting stance was changed to resemble Bruce Lee's traditional Jeet Kune Do stance.
Cung Le is playing Marshall Law for the movie Tekken.

Michelle Chang
Michelle Chang (ミシェール・チャン Mishēru Chan?) is a half-Chinese half-Native American female from Arizona and the foster mother of Julia Chang. Her father was killed along with the rest of the tribe by Heihachi Mishima's forces, who were searching for a treasure, a pendant that allegedly could control and subdue great powers and spirits. The pendant was coveted by Heihachi. When the Mishima Zaibatsu forces had left, Michelle's father gave Michelle the pendant before dying. Michelle entered the King of Iron Fist Tournament to seek vengeance on Heihachi for the murder of her father and tribe. Michelle also encountered Kunimitsu, a treasure hunter that was seeking the pendant. Michelle defeated Kunimitsu and secured the amulet. She promptly withdrew from the tournament; as she had achieved what she then realised should have been her main goal, and although she did not win the tournament, Michelle was still satisfied that another fighter (Kazuya Mishima) defeated Heihachi.
In Tekken 2, Michelle's mother had been kidnapped by Ganryu, who was working for Kazuya. Kazuya wanted the amulet. She had entered the tournament to rescue her mother. Michelle meets Ganryu and battles him. After defeating Ganryu, she rescues her mother and returns home. However, unknown to her, Ganryu had fallen in love with her. Upon returning home, Michelle casts the amulet into the ocean so that it can no longer cause any trouble.
A couple of years later, Michelle discovers an abandoned baby girl nearby her village. She adopts the infant, names her Julia, and loves her as if she were her own daughter. When Julia grows into a teenager, Michelle teaches her Chang Kenpo and various Chinese martial arts. Later, Michelle is kidnapped by Heihachi Mishima for her amulet, which had the power to awaken Ogre with its great power and spirits. Julia had entered the tournament to defeat Heihachi and save her mother. She appears in Julia's ending, being reunited with her adopted daughter.
Michelle has not appeared in any games since Tekken Tag Tournament.
Michelle will appear in the 2009 film, Tekken portrayed by Holly Marie Combs.

Nina Williams
Further information: Tekken (video game)
Nina Williams was born and raised in Ireland, as was her sister, Anna Williams[1]. From a young age, both were taught various forms of martial arts and other forms of fighting[1], and a sibling rivalry broiled between the two. Both sisters admired their father, Richard Williams, and they often craved for his attention. Williams was trained in assassination martial arts and borrows concepts from Aikido and bone martial arts[1], making it ideal for her future job as an assassin. As she quickly became an assassin Williams had later been hired during the King of Iron Fist Tournament to assassinate Heihachi Mishima.

Further information: Tekken 2
Their rivalry catapulting was the part of force that drove them to fight each other later at this time. The other, in Tekken 2, Nina was contracted to kill Kazuya Mishima, but Anna intervened and the conflict prevented her from fulfilling the assignment. She was captured by Mishima after failing to assassinate him and was used as a test subject in the "cold sleep" project by Dr. Boskonovich[1] - a cryogenic experiment.[4] Anna Williams volunteered to be put in cryogenic sleep, but demanded to be awoken at the same time as Nina. Fans speculate about the reason for this. Some believe that Anna couldn't bear life without Nina's presence, some suggest she was envious that Nina would remain youthful in the Cryosleep and some think she did it so that she could stay unharmed and ready to fight Nina once she was awakened. The experiments went on for 19 years[1].

Further information: Tekken 3
During the years of experimentation, she became pregnant through IVF and had given birth to an infant boy who later became Steve Fox[1]. Steve Fox has since appeared in Tekken 4 and Tekken 5. Another consequence of this cryogenic project was total memory loss [4], a fate from which her sister Anna was spared. During Tekken 3, she was controlled by the God of Fighting's spell and while possessed concentrated on killing Jin Kazama- Heihachi Mishima's grandson.[1] Anna worked intensively with Boskonovich to bring her sister's memories back, however the project was unsuccessful and after a receiving a memory spike, Nina realized that she and her sister did not get along. After this Nina left and does not contact Anna again for some time.

Further information: Tekken 4
In Tekken 4, Nina's experiments had been finished for 2 years and she soon revived her role as an assassin [4], as it was the only thing that she recalled from her previous life. Her next contract was from the Mafia Syndicate demanding her to kill a British boxer, Steve Fox[1][4]. As the tournament progressed, she had gained knowledge that she was in fact Steve's mother. At the last moment, she abandoned her assassination attempt after detective Lei Wulong brought down the syndicate. After the collapse of her employers, Nina no longer required a viable reason to pursue her target. It was also revealed that she remained emotionally impassive about the discovery of her biological son, but the fact that she did not kill him when the chance presented itself, for some shows otherwise [5].

Further information: Tekken 5
Nina decided that it was time she re-discovered her lost memories and came to the conclusion that the only person who could help her was her sister, Anna Williams[5]. Anna meets with Nina soonafter. However, Nina's memories and hatred instinctively returned, and they rapidly engaged in a gun battle.[6]. The duel lasted for days and the two later agreed to meet at the next tournament and finish their battle[5]. The two promised that only one would walk away from the coming battle, however Nina refused to take Anna's life as their fight wasn't satisfactory.

Further information: Tekken 6
In Tekken 6, Nina was approached by Jin Kazama to be his personal bodyguard and enters the tournament to intercept any possible threat to him. Anna, during the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, vows to take revenge and becomes Kazuya Mishima's personal bodyguard, knowing she is bound to come face to face with Nina along the way.

Paul Phoenix
Paul Phoenix (ポール・フェニックス Pōru Fenikkusu?) is a Judo expert and a good friend of the Law family. His mixture of karate and judo styles have achieved legendary status, but a seemingly minor complication always arises that prevents him from winning the tournament, as in the case when a traffic jam prevents his confrontation with his rival, Kazuya Mishima, at the end of the second Iron Fist tournament.
In common with many Tekken characters, Paul's moveset includes flamboyant fictional attacks, mixed with more realistic-looking techniques. While his strike-heavy style bears little in common with grapple-based modern judo, early judo did in fact include striking attacks, based as it was on various forms of jujutsu[5]. In Tekken, Paul's sub-boss was Kuma, a bear supposedly trained by Heihachi Mishima; this was explained by Paul having witnessed as a child a martial artist called Willie Williams fighting a bear. Willie Williams is a real-life kyokushin karateka, who can indeed be seen fighting a bear in a sequence filmed as part of a documentary about Kyokushin Karate[6], although curiously the bear in question seems reluctant to retaliate using its full strength.
Paul went undefeated during The King of Iron Fist Tournament 3, even managing to beat Ogre. He left soon afterwards, claiming himself to be the winner. However, Ogre evolved into True ogre and the tournament continued after his departure. Having realized this only sometime afterwards, Paul became frustrated and angry. Few believed him when he told everyone that he was the true winner of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 3. After a short while, he soon turned to alcohol. Paul then heard an announcement for The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4. "This is my chance to prove to everyone that I was right." Paul trained vigorously and entered the tournament.
Rolling through his opponents one-by-one, Paul felt excited at the prospects of facing Kazuya Mishima, whom he had not faced in over 20 years. However, he once again found Kuma standing in his way. His mind distracted, Paul did not take Kuma seriously at first, and by the time he realized his mistake, he was quickly overwhelmed by the bear and defeated. His loss to Kuma shamed Paul greatly, and he realized he had strayed from the path of a true martial artist and started his training all over again. When the fifth tournament was announced, Paul entered to prove that he is, literally, "the toughest fighter in the universe".
Paul Phoenix's rematch with Kuma was fierce, and though victorious, he was utterly exhausted, leaving him unable to continue the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. Unable to collect any prize money from the last tournament, Paul, who was already burdened by his mountain of debt, learns that a new King of Iron Fist Tournament will be held soon. Believing that if he won the tournament, he could finally say goodbye to his loan troubles, Paul deeply thought about ways to increase his chances of winningparticipating on his own was out of the question. If he could assemble a team with someone, his chances of winning the prize money would greatly increase. And so he went over his plan with his best friend Marshall Law - but thinking a three-man team was better than two, renowned boxer Steve Fox caught his attention.
Paul will appear in the 2009 film, Tekken portrayed by Ron Perlman

Wang Jinrei
Wang Jinrei (王 椋雷 Wan Jinrei?) was a companion of Jinpachi Mishima, Heihachi Mishima's father. Wang watched Heihachi and Kazuya Mishima with great interest as they grew and chose their respective paths of life. Wang remained generous and kind whilst living as a recluse in the Mishima gardens. Wang also tutored Ling Xiaoyu in the martial arts at a young age. Furthermore, Wang Jinrei took Marshall Law on in the first King of Iron Fist Tournament, which ended in a draw. However, Wang loses to Jun Kazama in the second tournament.
Now, Wang tends to the huge number of vegetables in the gardens, finding time to hone his martial arts skill. Every morning at the crack of dawn, he can be seen strolling down the mountains gazing at the clouds. His lithe athletiscism, despite his age, has meant that his inner chi strength is channelled with great purity of spirit, despite his frail bones. His reason for entering the second tournament is to carry out the final wishes of the long-dead Jinpachi. During his life, Jinpachi watched with grief as Heihachi and Kazuya followed the path of evil. He instructed his faithful friend to eliminate both of them when the time was right. Wang theorises that the best way to fulfill this plea is to face all challengers giving way to those adept enough to defeat Kazuya and dispatches those unworthy of his attention. Heihachi will stare into the face of destiny at another time. Wang enters the fifth tournament to find out the authenticity of a letter he received, noting that Jinpachi had come back.
Wang heard of the Mishima family's cursed blood from his close friend, Jinpachi Mishima. Wang was defeated in The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 by Jin Kazama, whose purpose was to wipe out the Mishima family's cursed blood. However, the real chaos began when Jin assumed control of the Mishima Financial Group (MFG). Blaming his failure on his indifference, Jinrei lamented his lack of action. Once again, The King of Iron Fist Tournament is held, and with newfound purpose, Wang participates in The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6.

Introduced in Tekken 2

Baek Doo San
Baek Doo San (白頭山 Peku Tō San?) (Hangul: 백두산) first appeared in Tekken 2 as the sub-boss of Marshall Law. According to the storyline, Baek accidentally killed his father during a sparring session, which left him in doubt over his own skills. As a result of his father's death, Baek went on a rampage, destroying several dojos. One of the worst hit happened to be Marshall Law's. Baek then left a note there telling him that he will be in the second King of Iron Fist tournament. The two met there and had a match, in which Baek lost.
According to the Tekken 3 storyline, Baek was presumed dead after encountering Ogre the fictional Aztec God of Fighting. One of his closest students, Hwoarang, entered The King of Iron Fist Tournament 3 to exact revenge for his master's death and to have a rematch with Jin Kazama, the only fighter who had ever fought him to a draw.
According to the Tekken 5 storyline, Baek's encounter with Ogre had left him in a coma, not dead as initially presumed. He woke up over a year later, after Hwoarang had already competed in The King of Iron Fist Tournament 3. Baek later began teaching taekwondo at military bases. Hwoarang was drafted into the South Korean military, but he ran away to compete in The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4. When he was arrested by the South Korean Military Police, he was informed that Baek was alive. Two months later, Hwoarang completed his service, and Baek asked him to enter The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. Baek also entered the tournament to test his student's skills.
Baek entered The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, along with his disciple, Hwoarang. However, Baek withdrew from the tournament when he found out that Hwoarang lost to Devil Jin, and he was seriously injured. Baek then rushed to the hospital to visit Hwoarang. Although Hwoarang's condition wasn't considered as something serious after his treatment, Hwoarang wouldn't wake up, and Baek started blaming himself for being an inadequate instructor. It took Hwoarang three days to regain consciousness. They discussed the details, and Hwoarang told Baek that he not only has to recover, but he has to strengthen himself even further. Baek sensed his strong will and his unprecedented modesty, and hence he decided to teach him everything he knows. Baek and Hwoarang returned to Korea, and endeavoured to practice intensely. Eventually, the announcement of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 came from the Mishima Zaibatsu, and Baek decides to enter the tournament one last time to widen his personal experience-collection.

Bruce Irvin
Bruce Irvin (ブルース・アーヴィン Burūsu Āvin?), who had lost both his parents and elder brother in his infancy, grew up living a life plagued by hunger and much violence. Disliking the cards fate had dealt him, Bruce yearned to live the good life, and his resolve made him a very strong fighter.
As he was a kickboxer, Bruce went to Thailand to compete in a Muay Thai tournament, and his performance destroyed the former popular champion's hopes of ever returning. As a result, a Muay Thai gambling organization put out a contract on Bruce's life. While on board a returning flight home, the contract killer attempted to take Bruce's life, but an investigator of Hong Kong's International Police force, who was also on the flight, thwarted his efforts. A fight ensued and when it was over the plane went down. A unit from Kazuya's facilities later rescued Bruce, who had been surviving off of human remains for several months.
In Tekken 5 it was revealed that Bruce had been working for several special units, and he was currently working as a survival technical guidance instructor. He entered The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 in order to test his skills once again.
After becoming reacquainted with Kazuya Mishima at the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, Bruce Irvin decided to assist Kazuya with his scheme to takeover G Corporation, and after they had succeeded Kazuya managed to control the corporation from behind closed doors.
G Corporation waged war with the Mishima Financial Group (MFG), and Bruce, as Kazuya's captain, led Kazuya's private corps into battle, fighting the MFG the world over. Soon afterwards, G Corporation made preparations to annihilate the MFG by placing an enormous bounty on Jin, and as anticipated, the MFG began to show signs of movement; The opening of King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 was announced. Bruce Irvin has entered the tournament to capture Jin

Jun Kazama
Jun Kazama (風間 準 Kazama Jun?) is an officer of the WWWC, a wildlife protection organization. She is called "The Chosen One" by her relatives. She is highly psychic and can sense a mysterious power surrounding Kazuya Mishima, which turns out to be the Devil Gene threatening to turn him into a demonic version of himself. At the WWWC's orders, she sets out to arrest Kazuya, who smuggles environmentally-protected animals. When the King of Iron Fist Tournament 2 was coming to an end, Jun comes to the stunning realization that Kazuya's supernatural strength stems from Devil. But she cannot help being drawn to him, propelled by a mystic force beyond her control.
During the King of Iron Fist Tournament 2, Jun became pregnant by Kazuya Mishima. At the conclusion of the tournament, Devil left Kazuya and attempted to possess Jun's unborn child. Jun however, proved to be superior and defeated Devil, before fleeing to the forests of Yakushima, where she intended to raise her child away from evil and danger. She later gave birth to a baby boy who she named Jin. 15 years after the birth of her son, Jun sensed the approaching of Ogre and warned Jin to seek out his grandfather Heihachi Mishima should anything happen to her. One night, Ogre did indeed attack. Jun screamed for Jin to run away, but he wished to protect his beloved mother from Ogre and charged at him, but was well outmatched and was quickly knocked unconscious. When Jin woke up, the Kazama's house had burned to the ground and Jun was missing. Jin searched frantically through the rubble, but couldn't find his mother anywhere. Jin assumed that Jun was dead and swore revenge on Ogre.

Lei Wulong
During Tekken 2 and Tekken 3, Lei Wulong (雷 武龍 Rei Ūron?) was a respected police officer, dubbed "super cop", who put countless criminals behind bars. Just as Marshall Law bears a resemblance to Bruce Lee, Lei bears a strong resemblance to Jackie Chan. He was investigating the illegal hunting and trading of endangered animals done by the Mishima Zaibatsu during Tekken 2 and fought Bruce Irvin, who was working for Kazuya Mishima. Lei defeated Bruce, who escaped in an airplane, but it crashed.
In Tekken 4, he sets out to stop the assassin Nina Williams, who was sent by the mob to kill Steve Fox, in order to restore his waning reputation.

Roger and Alex
Kazuya Mishima took over the Mishima Zaibatsu from Heihachi. The Zaibatsu became more corrupt than ever under Kazuya's leadership and engaged in many illegal activities such as assassination, extortion, drug dealing and the smuggling of endangered species. Kazuya also recruited Doctor Boskonovitch to work for him. One of the projects he was commanded to work on was creating genetically engineered creatures. Through Boskonovitch, modified animals were created with DNA samples. Roger (ロジャー Rojā?) was created from Kangaroo DNA, whereas Alex (アレックス Arekkusu?) was created using DNA from Dromaeosaurid fossil samples.
Kazuya thought that Roger and Alex were worthless creations, and wanted to kill them. However, Roger and Alex managed to escape. They then met Armor King, who taught them to wrestle. Both Alex and Roger enter to fight in the Second Iron Fist Tournament. Jun Kazama infiltrated the second Iron Fist Tournament to arrest Kazuya, who is smuggling and experimenting on endangered species. She found Roger and Alex and quickly arranged for them to live out their lives in Australia, where they would be safe.
Roger was kidnapped before Tekken 5, and his son, Roger Jr, enters The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, aided by his mother, to find and save him. After his son Roger, Jr. found out that the reason Roger was "abducted" was so he could watch television for the rest of his life, he punches his father through the roof out of pure anger, realizing that his rescue mission was for nothing.

Introduced in Tekken 3 and Tekken Tag Tournament

Bryan Fury
A known officer within Interpol, Bryan Fury (ブライアン・フューリー Buraian Fyūrī?) is shot and killed by gunmen during a shootout in Hong Kong[7]. His corpse is placed in the custody of Doctor Abel for scientific research and he is revived in order for him to be Abel's agent in obtaining classified information on raising a cyborg-led army.[7] Bryan enters the King of Iron Fist Tournament 3 in hopes of killing Yoshimitsu and capturing Dr. Boskonovitch, Abel's rival.
In Tekken 4, Bryan learns that his body is deteriorating and that he is close to death. Upon learning that his creator, Doctor Abel, has become head scientific advisor of the Mishima Zaibatsu, he grows to despise the Mishima Zaibatsu for taking Abel away from him, and Abel himself, for abandoning him. Bryan enters the tournament with the hope of becoming the head of the Mishima Zaibatsu, enabling him to order Doctor Abel to modify his body and prevent him from dying.
Despite not winning, Bryan eventually finds Abel, and uses his last ounce of strength to knock Abel out before losing consciousness. Later on, he wakes up in the laboratory of none other than Dr. Boskonovitch, who tells him that Yoshimitsu rescued him while robbing Heihachi Mishima's mansion, and promises to transfer Bryan's mind into a new body, although it will take a whole year. Bryan silently agrees to let Boskonovitch put him to sleep.
Bryan, however, awakens a month later and is told by Boskonovitch that his body was too complicated for himself to work with, but as a last resort, He had installed a perpetual power generator in him to grant him immortality. Upon learning this, Bryan attacks Boskonovitch and the Manji clan members assigned to guard him, and leaves the laboratory. Bryan enters the Tekken 5 tournament to test his performance with the generator installed, unaware that Yoshimitsu is pursuing him for revenge.
Yoshimitsu's repeated meddling hinders Bryan's hopes of unlocking the generator's true powers in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. Soon afterwards, Bryan's frustration reaches its pinnacle, and he begins to destroy everything in sight after abandoning the tournament. Driven by rage, he joins various battlefields over the world, indiscriminately leveling this and that to rubble. However, he soon grows tired of the same thing repeating itself countless times. Around this time, he catches wind of the Tekken 6 tournament. Seeing another chance to test the generator's true powers, he signs up.
His appearance seems to be based on Rutger Hauer's character looks in the movie Blade Runner, as well as his background. He also bares a resemblance (in costume and background) to Dolph Lundgren's character from the movie Universal Soldier. His looks and abilities might also resemble those of Lt. Colonel Otto Steiner from the manga Riki-Oh
Bryan will appear in the 2009 film, Tekken portrayed by Gary Daniels.

Forest Law
The proud son of Marshall Law, Forest Law (フォレスト・ロウ Foresuto Rou?) trains at his father's dojo to achieve Marshall's success and greatness. As a protective father, Marshall has forbidden his son from entering any contests outside the dojo.
Marshall's long-time friend and competitor, Paul Phoenix, visits once every few months to spar with Marshall. One day, when Paul arrived, Marshall was away supervising the building of a new dojo. Paul insisted that Forest join him in some training exercises. Forest declined, knowing that his father would disapprove. But Paul wouldn't take no for an answer.
Unaware of Marshall's restrictions on fighting, Paul suggested to Forest that he join 'The King of Iron Fist Tournament 3'. Paul sold Forest on the idea by telling him he's a better fighter than his father. Forest knew his father would be angry, but he had to prove that he was worthy of one day inheriting the dojo. Marshall was enraged when he found out what happened. To him, it was as if his son had been kidnapped.
Forest Law has not appeared in the Tekken series since Tekken Tag Tournament.

Eddy Gordo

Hwoarang (花郎 Faran?) (Hangul: 화랑) (Pronounced: Hwah-Rang, the "R" is rolled) is a student of Baek Doo San and well-versed in the martial art of taekwondo. He used to gamble in street fighting. His fellow gang members would lose matches, then Hwoarang would step in and win. During one of these matches, he faced Jin Kazama, and he was forced to end in a draw. This was the first time that he had not succeeded in winning a fight. Hwoarang decided to train harder and never lose again. Upon visiting the dojang, he saw the dojang destroyed. It had been attacked by Ogre. Frustrated and angry, he entered The King of Iron Fist Tournament 3 to fight a conclusive battle with Jin, and to get revenge for the death of his master.
In Tekken 4, Hwoarang was drafted into the South Korean army, notably assigned to a SpecOps unit (apparently rising to the rank of Sergeant). Longing for the rush of the hand-to-hand combat that he used to find only with street hustling, he went AWOL and became a fugitive of the South Korean government. He heard of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4, and he decided to enter so that he could face his rival, Jin, in the tournament. He gets his chance to face Jin though then later apparently escaped and fights again though the fight was interrupted when a South Korean special forces squad (including his field commander)arrived and supposedly arrested Hwoarang.
In Tekken 5, while Hwoarang was awaiting court martial, he was taken to the South Korean embassy, where the ambassador issued him some urgent papers. After reading the papers, Hwoarang exclaimed, "I can't believe it! Are you sure this is correct?" (It has been suggested that these papers were from Baek Doo San himself, informing Hwoarang that he survived Ogre's attack.) Hwoarang completed his military service within two months, and then he entered The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, eager to fight Jin Kazama. He was also asked to compete by his master Baek Doo San.
In Tekken 5 Hwoarang faced Jin and defeated him. While Jin was lying on the ground, suddenly he roars paranormally and produces a gale that blows Hwoarang away. From Jin's back, two black wings spread and Jin rises with his devil form. Hwoarang is at his wits end - he is unable to fight back and soon he is knocked unconscious. When Hwoarang wakes up he finds himself in the hospital. Nearby he sees Baek standing as a visitor. Hwoarang hears the details from Baek. He ignores his nurse, tries to move from his bed, but falls down in order to beseech Baek to make him stronger. After leaving the Hospital, Hwoarang starts training with unprecedented devoutness in order to defeat the "paranormal" Jin. Thus with the announcement of "King of Iron Fist" tournament 6 he prepares to enter the tournament.
Hwoarang will appear in the 2009 film, Tekken portrayed by Jae Hee.

Jin Kazama

Julia Chang
Julia Chang (ジュリア・チャン Juria Chan?) studies archeology in Michelle Chang's tribal lands. As a baby, Julia was deserted in the ruins of ancient Native American settlements, where Michelle found her. Michelle rescued Julia and brought her up with love. Julia loved Michelle and her adopted tribe and trained with Michelle to protect her beloved homeland. When Julia was 18, stories of sudden disappearances of famous martial artists all over the world began to reach the tribe. The tribe knew the cause, which was contained in the tribal legends, the legend of The God of Fighters. People in the tribe feared that Michelle's pendant, the key to Native American sacred treasure, had something to do with the disappearances. With apprehension spreading through the tribe, Michelle left for Japan to ask Heihachi Mishima why he had sought to take the pendant during the second tournament. Michelle hoped to learn about the origin of The God of Fighting's power. Michelle did not return. Julia suspected Heihachi and now seeks him out to discover the truth.
Julia was a college student studying archaeology. One day, she discovered that her native homeland was in danger of being covered by an encroaching desert; this was brought on by today's rapidly changing global ecosystem. Julia wanted to save her home, and she began her studies on ecosystem restoration. Julia joined an advanced genetic research group led by Professor T that studied the biological mechanism of reforestation. Professor T's research grant came almost exclusively from G Corporation. In fact, G Corporation's supercomputers located at their high security research center were used for computationally intensive biogenetic analysis and ecosystem modeling. All their project data was stored on G Corporation's file servers as well. Julia was absorbed in her daily research, waiting for the day when her work on ecosystem restoration would be complete. When her project was completed, she would save her home.
One day, Julia learned from Professor T that their project was on hold indefinitely. The Mishima Zaibatsu attacked G Corporation's high security research center and stole all their project data. Julia didn't know a thing about G Corporation's secret research projects nor did she care about them. Yet she knew that she had to retrieve her data from the Mishima Zaibatsu in order to save her home from becoming a desert in a few years time. Julia searched the net to gather information regarding the Mishima Zaibatsu. Her eyes lit up when she saw a web page announcing The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4.
Julia Chang continues her research on forest rejuvenation. Disappointed that she was unable to recover the reforestation data during the King Of Iron Fist Tournament 4, Julia returns home and resumes her research. Each time her work hits a dead end, she is reminded of the data that she was unable to retrieve. At that point she received a letter addressed to her in a foreign language. Attached is an announcement of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. In order to fulfill her hopes for forest rejuvenation, Julia decides to enter the fifth tournament. Along the way, she comes face to face with her friend, King, whom she attempts to talk out of taking revenge against Craig Marduk, but King does not listen.
Julia Chang was able to recover the lost Forest Rejuvenation data needed to turn the wasteland back into its original form. When Julia returned to her homeland of Arizona, she was met by the chief of their tribe and an old woman capable of hearing the voice of the Great Spirit. The old woman tells Julia of a premonition, 'If Jin Kazama and Kazuya Mishima were to engage in combat, it would bring about the resurrection of a demon from Hell.' Julia doubted the old woman's story, but on her way to The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 due to it being sponsored by the Mishima Zaibatsu, she suddenly realizes what the premonition means and accepts it as true. Julia decides to personally enter the tournament to prevent it from happening.
Julia will appear in the 2009 film, Tekken, portrayed by Charisma Carpenter

King (II)
A street urchin was brought up in a Mexican orphanage owned by the original fighter to bear the name 'King'. By the age of 24, this wrestler worked hard with King until one day, news broke of King's death at the hands of Ogre.
Seeing that the orphanage would crumble into ruin (the money gained from King's wrestling matches was the only funding received), this man donned the mask of King and imitated his style. Unfortunately, he had only seen King's wrestling moves as a child, and he lost every competition he entered. One day however, another man with a mask visited the new King, introducing himself as an old friend. This man revealed himself to be Armor King, who was interested in finding out if the rumors of a new King were true.
For four years the two of them trained, and the new King learned quickly; maturing into a forceful wrestler with extreme power, known as King the Second. By this time, the now 28 year old wrestler was a worthy heir to the throne, however he longed to punish the one responsible for the original King's death.
With rumors of the "God of Fighting" circulating, Armor King revealed to his student that the elusive entity was the one most likely responsible. Armor King watched as the new King, fueled with rage, set his sights on avenging his foster father's death and proving himself worthy of wearing the mask.
King discovered that his master, Armor King, had been killed in a bar fight. The perpetrator, Craig Marduk, had been arrested in Arizona and was sent to prison. Upon Marduk's release (thanks to bribes paid by King himself), King sent a letter challenging Marduk to the tournament in Tekken 4.
He defeated Marduk in Tekken 4, sending him to the hospital, where King followed him to deliver a deadly blow. However, he stopped after seeing a portrait of Marduk and his elderly parents. King let him live, realizing how foolish he had become.
King is later enraged to find out that Marduk has been defeating opponents in a black jaguar mask (identical to Armor King's), and he has issued a televised challenge to The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. Seeing Marduk disgrace his master, King steps into the ring once again to settle the score once and for all.
King meets Marduk in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, and their subsequent battle results in a draw and the start of their friendship. However, after the tournament, Marduk is brutally attacked, and he tells King that the assailant is apparently the man he was convicted of killing: Armor King. Determined to learn the true identity of the man in Armor King's mask, King and Marduk enter the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6.
King is played by the professional wrestler Dave Batista in the 2009 film, Tekken

Ling Xiaoyu
Even at a very young age, Ling Xiaoyu (Chinese: 凌 曉雨 Pinyin: Lng Xiǎoyǔ, Japanese: リン・シャオユウ Rin Shaoyū) loved amusement parks. Also she was tutored in martial arts by Wang Jinrei from a young age. He believed that if she were more serious, she could achieve true greatness, but became frustrated by her careless attitude. While vacationing in Hong Kong with her family, she noticed a yacht bearing the name: Mishima Zaibatsu. Knowing that the Mishima Zaibatsu was rich and powerful, she decided to seek out Heihachi Mishima and make her dream a reality. Abandoning her family, Xiaoyu stowed away on the ship.
The ships security soon discovered her and informed Heihachi of her presence. By the time that Heihachi arrived on the scene, all of the TekkenshuHeihachis personal security forcethat were aboard the ship had been beaten into unconsciousness and strewn about the deck. It looked as if the ship had been hit by a hurricane. Amidst the chaos, Heihachi found Xiaoyu. She threatened to beat him up if he did not accept her challenge. Amused by her juvenile antics, Heihachi roared with laughter and promised to build her theme park if she won his tournament. She enrolls at the Mishima Polytechnical School, and this is where she first meets both Jin Kazama and Miharu Hirano. Bringing along her old school's trained panda (aptly named "Panda"), Heihachi teaches her to fight, much like he had taught Kuma, so that Xiaoyu would have a bodyguard. This inspired Xiaoyu to see Heihachi as something of a grandfather toward her.
After the King of Iron Fist Tournament 3, Xiaoyu continued to live, study, and train as a ward of the Mishima Zaibatsu, but her life became boring and mundane, lacking any particular goals. Two years later, Xiaoyu was delivered an anonymous e-mail admonishing her not to trust Heihachi. The anonymous individual warned her that Heihachi posed an immediate danger to her life. At this time, Xiaoyu was a junior at the Mishima Polytechnical School and had become sick of her daily routines, but receiving this mysterious e-mail rejuvenated Xiaoyus passionate spirit.
Xiaoyu replied to the e-mail dozens of times. Although the sender never contacted her again, Xiaoyu became convinced that Jin, who had been missing since the previous Tekken tournament, had sent it to her. Around this same time, Heihachi announced the King of the Iron Fist Tournament 4. Hoping to reconnect with Jin and unmask the Mishima Zaibatsus evil deeds, Xiaoyu decided to enter the tournament.[8]
At the end of the previous tournament, Xiaoyu is rescued from the evil plans of Heihachi Mishima by Yoshimitsu, who then tells her about the tragic history of the Mishima family. Xiaoyu starts to believe that the root of all misfortune surrounding Jin and the Mishima family was Heihachi pitching Kazuya off the edge of a cliff when he was five years old. At this point, Xiaoyu believes it is her personal mission to save the tragic Mishima family. She wished that there were some way to turn back time and fix the past. Her prayers were answered when she heard an unnamed scientist boast that if he had the money, he could build a time machine. To obtain the money to fund the invention, Xiaoyu enters The King of the Iron Fist Tournament 5 to win the prize money.[8]
Ling Xiaoyu breathed a sigh of relief when she heard Heihachi had not truly died. However, as head of the Mishima Zaibatsu, Jin Kazama aims to take Heihachis life. Xiaoyu was going to try and stop Jin herself, but the Zaibatsu pushed towards militarization, making it difficult to approach Jin. The Mishima Zaibatsus declaration of war drew hostility from around the globe. When the King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 is announced, Ling Xiaoyu enters in the hope that she can save Jins soul from evil.
Outside of the main series, Ling Xiaoyu has appeared in Tekken Card Challenge, Tekken Tag Tournament and Tekken Advance. Ling Xiaoyu also appears in Smash Court Tennis Pro Tournament 2 as an unlockable character. Her comic book appearances includes Tekken Forever and Tekken: Tatakai no Kanatani. She will also appear in the 2009 movie, Tekken portrayed by Chiaki Kuriyama.[9] She also appeared in the Tekken Maxim Photoshoot for Maxim magazine portrayed by a model named Krystle. Ling Xiaoyu was one of five characters nominated in G4's 2005 "Video Game Vixens" awards show under the category of "Baddest Good Girl",[10] but lost to Final Fantasy X's Rikku.[11] GameDaily noted "It's impossible to dislike Ling Xiaoyu", describing her as both an attractive and a strong character[12] in a later article they named her one of their favorite female Asian video game characters, calling her "a joy to behold".[13]

Mokujin (木人 Mokujin?, lit. "tree person") is inspired by the Jackie Chan movie Shaolin Wooden Men. He is a wooden training dummy who comes to life at the presence of powerful evil. He has no fighting style of his own, and instead swaps between the fighting styles of the other characters featured in the game. At the beginning of a fight, Mokujin will assume another character's fighting style at random, and uses a wooden sword when he emulates Yoshimitsu. In this aspect, mastering Mokujin requires mastery of all the other Tekken characters' movesets.
Mokujin was awakened when Ogre, the God of Fighting, was released. After Jin Kazama defeated Ogre in The King of Iron Fist Tournament 3, Mokujin grew lifeless once more, but he had a smile on his face (stated in Mokujin's Tekken 5 Prologue). With the awakening of another powerful evil entity (Jinpachi Mishima), Mokujin has come to life once more, and it is said to be unknown that when Mokujin would be free. After the defeat of Jinpachi Mishima, Mokujin again became lifeless until Tekken 6.

Ogre (オーガ Ōga?) is first mentioned in Heihachi Mishima's character profile. It states that many years after Heihachi had reclaimed control of the Mishima Zaibatsu, he formed the Tekken Force, his own military group. One of the missions of the Tekken Force was to search an ancient temple located somewhere in Mexico. Soon after arriving there, Heihachi learned that his entire force had been obliterated by Ogre. Heihachi, having witnessed the power of Ogre sought to capture it in hopes of creating the ultimate life form.
According to official canon, Ogre attacked many world-renowned martial arts masters around the world. Because many characters from previous Tekken titles were not featured in Tekken 3, it is believed that their disappearance is due to being a victim of Ogre. This is supported by the fact that Ogre's fighting style is completely formed by other character's fighting styles, many of which were those who did not appear among the cast of playable characters in Tekken 3, such as Wang Jinrei, Baek Doo San, Bruce Irvin, Lee Chaolan, and Kunimitsu. It was later revealed however, that the only Tekken fighters that Ogre attacked/killed were Baek doo San (whom he did not actually kill), the original King, and Jun Kazama, the mother of Jin Kazama. It is unknown if Kunimitsu was a victim of Ogre as she has not been featured in the plot of a Tekken game since Tekken 2.
Sometime when Jin was fifteen, his mother warned him of an approaching evil (Ogre) and told him to seek refuge with his grandfather, Heihachi. Jin, wishing to protect his mother tried to defend her from Ogre, but was knocked unconscious. When Jin awoke, he found his home burned to the ground and his mother nowhere to be seen. It is unknown if Ogre actually killed Jun. It is rumored that Jun was taken to the demon world by Devil Kazuya so that Ogre could not find her, but Jin is unaware.
Jin fled to his grandfather, Heihachi, as Jun had previously instructed. Heihachi made the decision to train the boy to become a powerful fighter, giving Jin hopes of exacting revenge on Ogre. Heihachi's goal however, was to make Jin powerful enough to lure Ogre to him.
Eventually, Heihachi announced the King of Iron Fist Tournament 3 as a way to attract many powerful fighters. As planned, Ogre appeared at the tournament, but he was defeated by Paul Phoenix (Explained in Paul's Tekken 4 prologue) before Heihachi could capture it. Also, Jin, presumably having discovered Heihachi's sinister intentions for the tournament, defeated Heihachi. Unknown to them however, Ogre was not killed, and morphed into a monstrous beast by absorbing the energy of Heihachi.
Ogre's second form (known as True Ogre in subsequent games), is capable of using all of its techniques from his previous form as well as the abilities to teleport, fly, and breathe fire. True Ogre was defeated by Jin, and a white orb of light was emitted from its body as it dissolved.
Although Ogre was not present in the 4th game, he appears briefly in Heihachi's prologue. This explains that, Heihachi devised a new plan to make himself the ultimate warrior by using the genes of Ogre that were collected after the fight with Jin. But Ogre's genome could only be integrated with the "Devil Gene", which Heihachi did not possess. He knew that Jin and the resurrected Kazuya did, so he announced The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4 to lure both of them out.
Ogre appears only in the minigame, Devil Within, as a boss. The plot details events that occur during the two month period between Tekken 4 and Tekken 5. After Jin left the Hon-Maru after the final battle in The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4, he heard that his mother, Jun, was still alive at G Corporation. When Jin traveled to their labs, he found no trace of his mother, but instead discovered that G Corporation had either resurrected Ogre, or had simply discovered another Ogre. Beneath the labs were the remains of another ancient temple, where Jin battled True Ogre once again. Ogre fled to a deeper part of the ruins, and Jin followed it.
The deeper ruins are depicted as an other-worldly crystal-like labyrinth. The enemies Jin contended with were monsters and mutants, who were likely minions of Ogre or guardians of the ruins. The boss of stage four is a giant contraption that uses a large white orb to attack. After Jin destroys this, it is revealed that he unwittingly broke the seal containing Ogre.
During the game's final stage, Jin battles True Ogre once again. Once it is defeated, it reveals yet another transformation. This form had new abilities to create giant whirlwinds and crush Jin under its large body, along with all of its previously used techniques. According to the plot, Jin overcomes Ogre and is attacked by Jack robots, causing him to transform into Devil Jin.

Panda (パンダ Panda?) is cared for at Ling Xiaoyu's high school. To participate in the tournament, Xiaoyu moved to the Mishima Polytechnical School in Japan. Heihachi taught Panda "Advanced Bear Fighting" so that she could act as a bodyguard for Xiaoyu during the tournament. Although Kuma is fond of Panda, Panda dislikes him and keeps her distance.
When you select Panda for use in the game, her preview image shows up on screen as Kuma. She did not receive her own preview icon or image until Tekken Tag Tournament. The same also applies to Tiger Jackson.
Panda is given her own story. In her prologue, it explains Panda as protecting Xiaoyu as her bodyguard and tending to her concerns. In her Tekken 4 ending, she hands over control of the Mishima Zaibatsu to Xiaoyu, and then she calls Xiaoyu over to the tournament ring. She then explains to Xiaoyu that she has to search for Jin Kazama on her own.
After the conclusion of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4, Ling Xiaoyu had been feeling depressed. Panda thought long and hard about how she could make Xiaoyu happy again. Panda decided that the best approach would be to find Jin Kazama. Panda searched for Jin, but she was unable to find him. One day, Xiaoyu came to her excited. "Panda, I've decided to enter The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, and I need your help once again". Panda didn't quite understand Xiaoyu's reason for entering the tournament, but she decided to help if it would make her happy. Later Panda was relieved to learn Heihachi Mishima still lived, but only brieflyher moment of relief past by quickly without notice with the sudden announcement of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6.

Unknown (アンノウン Announ?) appears to be a tortured soul which has been enslaved by the "Forest Demon" (which takes the form of a wolf-like appearance and appears behind her in fights, controlling and mimicking her actions). Unknown also has a symbol tattooed on her upper right arm which resembles that of Jin Kazama's, and can use different fighting styles, though her fighting style defaults to that of Jun Kazama.
Unknown appears as a woman with short, black hair and glowing yellow eyes. Her default 'costume' appears to have her otherwise nude body mostly covered in black, shiny body paint or oil, as if she had been submerged in it to her chest. Her second, alternate costume shows her dressed in the burnt, ripped remains of a white dress, with bandages wrapped around her arms, shins and instep.

Introduced in Tekken 4

Christie Monteiro
Christie Monteiro (クリスティ・モンテイロ Kurisuti Monteiro?) is the granddaughter of the Capoeira master who taught Eddy Gordo the art of Capoeira during his incarceration in prison. While in prison, Eddy swore an oath to the Master to pass on the art of Capoeira to his granddaughter.
Eddy sought out Christie shortly after his return from King of Iron Fist Tournament 3, and taught her the art of Capoeira, just as he promised his master. After only two years of tutelage, Christie became an impressive fighter. But soon thereafter, Eddy abruptly disappeared, leaving Christie only with the words, "I must seek vengeance against the enemy responsible for the death of my father." Troubled by his sudden and mysterious disappearance, Christie pursues Eddy. Her only lead The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4.
Christie's grandfather, a great Capoeira master, was released from prison after a long incarceration. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with an incurable illness, and he was given only six months to live, but a cure might be possible with possessing the technology from the Mishima Zaibatsu. Several days later, Christie learns of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. She sees it as a chance to save her grandfather, believing that if she possesses the advanced technology of the Mishima Zaibatsu, she may be able to find a cure for him.
Christie entered The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 hoping to save the life of her grandfather. She was defeated and went home to Brazil. Upon her arrival, she finds out that not only is her grandfather missing, but Eddy, as well.
Disappointed and baffled to the location of both Eddy and her grandfather, she learns from the hospital where her grandfather was staying that he was transferred to the Mishima Zaibatsu's medical facility. In order to find the exact location of her grandfather, Christie enters The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6.
During development of Tekken 3, the designers noted that Capoeira's movements were more suitable for a female character. As a result they included Christie instead of Eddy Gordo in Tekken 4, feeling they had made an attractive female character that could utilize the fighting style.[14]
GameDaily listed her in their "Babes of Tekken" article, stating "When it comes to Tekken, no character moves as gracefully as Christie ".[15] She additionally appeared in their "Babes We're Thankful For" article, stating while attractive, "she can break a guy's arms and legs in seconds. We love a girl that stands up for herself."[16]
Christie will appear in the 2009 film, Tekken portrayed by Kelly Overton.

Combot (コンボット Konbotto?) is a multi general purpose robot created by Lee Chaolan (under the guise of Violet) to enter in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 4. Combot is programmed to do a wide variety of things, from household chores to military action. This design was made to be the ultimate fighting machine and was programmed to learn every fighter's style as it progressed through the tournament. It was also used to increase the chance of Lee gaining the Mishima Zaibatsu if Heihachi were to be defeated by Combot. Unfortunately, the prototype was rushed due to time constraints and a few bugs were left in Combot's data. Because of this, whenever Combot is powered up, he can only utilize one opponent's fighting style at a time.

Craig Marduk
Craig Marduk (クレイグ・マードック Kureigu Mādokku?) was an undefeated Vale Tudo fighter for four years as a professional. When he was involved in a minor scandal, his backers were only too glad to release him. Imprisoned in Arizona for a murder accidentally committed in a bar fight, Marduk was suddenly released thanks to the influence of an anonymous benefactor. Upon his release he received a mystery package containing a newspaper clipping about the King of Iron Fist Tournament 4, and an airline ticket. Unfortunately for Marduk, the man he killed in the brawl was Armor King. Swearing revenge, Armor's protege, King, paid for Marduk's release using money he earned in wrestling tournaments. He had also sent the newspaper clipping and airline ticket, so that he could exact revenge on Marduk when he entered the tournament. The two met at the tournament, where King sufficiently defeated him, leaving Marduk hospitalized. Later, King paid a visit to Marduk in the hospital to finish him off, but instead spared him after noticing a photograph next to Marduk's bed showing Craig and his family.
Unable to accept defeat, Marduk trained his body to its limits. Wearing Armour King's black jaguar mask, Marduk entered a Vale Tudo tournament and challenged King after emerging undefeated. The two fought in The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, but victory and defeat eluded both fighters, and, in defeat, they found friendship. While returning to the waiting room, Craig was attacked. Catching only a glimpse of the attacker's back as he fled, Craig could have sworn he looked exactly like the man he was convicted of killing, Armor King. Determined to learn the assailant's true identity, Craig set out with King to participate in The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6.
His character is based on Australian actor and former WWE wrestler, Nathan Jones, who is 6 foot 11 inches tall, an ex-professional wrestler, ex-world's strongest man competitor (forced to quit after an arm injury while competing), National Powerlifting Champion of Australia and also formerly incarcerated in Boggo Road Gaol. Jones, in turn, will be playing Marduk in the forthcoming Tekken motion picture.
Craig Marduk's nationality seems to have been retconned between Tekken 4 and Tekken 5, going from American to Australian. He does not speak with an Australian accent, however, suggesting that Craig may have expatriated.
Jones will be playing Marduk in the movie Tekken.

Miharu Hirano
Miharu Hirano (平野 美晴 Hirano Miharu?) is an alternate costume for Ling Xiaoyu in Tekken 4, and is also her best friend in the game's storyline. She shares the same moves as Xiaoyu, as well as her prologue, epilogue and win animations. She wears a school uniform identical to Xiaoyu's and has short, feathered dark red hair.

Steve Fox
Steve Fox (スティーブ・フォックス Sutību Fokkusu?) was conceived in a lab; his mother is Nina Williams. After Nina failed to assassinate Kazuya Mishima, Heihachi Mishima captured her and used her as a test subject for cryogenic sleep studies. She gave birth to Steve during this time through in-vitro fertilization.
As an undefeated champion, Steve had everything he wanted; the only exception being information about his past. One day, the mafia organized a fight which he was supposed to lose. Refusing to co-operate, Steve won the fight instead. Pursued by the mafia, Steve fled to America, but came to a realization that no matter where he went, the mafia would always track him and he would never learn about his past. He entered The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4 to put himself back into the limelight and gain the answers he sought. Despite failing to win the tournament, he learned that Nina Williams is his mother. Along the way, he also cooperated with Lei Wulong, who was also trying to break up the same crime syndicate.
Two months after the conclusion of the fourth tournament, The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 was announced. Steve entered the tournament, this time focusing on the destruction of the Mishima Zaibatsu's research institute, vowing that "The Mishima Zaibatsu will never make another monster like me!" Despite not winning the fifth tournament, Steve found and destroyed the research institute of the Mishima Zaibatsu, and finally settled a long-time feeling of resentment. Steve was intent on returning to the world of boxing again, but the majority of major boxing meets are cancelled by the war that broke out all over the world. Steve, who knew no other trade than the boxing ring, had effectively lost his job and his passion, and went into depression. Soon after, he received an invitation to train together with Marshall Law and Paul Phoenix. Steve, who liked the idea of training in a martial art other than boxing, accepted.
British singer and actor Luke Goss is portrayed Fox in the 2009 film, Tekken.

Introduced in Tekken 5 and Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection

Asuka Kazama
Asuka Kazama (風間 飛鳥 Kazama Asuka?) was taught Kazama-style Traditional Martial Arts by her father, a dojo-master near Osaka, ever since she was a small girl. By nature, Asuka believes very strongly in justice and devotes much of her free time to being a vigilante of sorts, breaking up fights nearby (also, she is seen saving a kitten during the PlayStation 2 version of Tekken 5's opening). At the time in which the game takes place, Asuka is seventeen years old and is a high school student.
Asuka returned home from school one day to find that her dojo was in shambles. The students there had been beaten severely and her father was so badly hurt that he had to be taken to the hospital. In the next several days, a detective from Hong Kong, Lei Wulong, came to her and explained that the culprit would likely be entering The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. In order to get her personal revenge and redeem her dojo, Asuka enters the tournament as well.
Asuka entered The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 in order to avenge her father, who was injured by Feng Wei. She was unable to find Feng Wei, and, as the tournament ended, she returned to her calm and normal life. However, her life didn't stay peaceful for long, as Asuka discovered that Jin Kazama was the man responsible for the terrible war going on all over the world. She enters The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 in order to capture her cousin.

Feng Wei
As a boy, Feng Wei (馮 威 Fen Wei?) was raised as a disciple by a Kenpo master who was so skilled he was known as Shinken 神拳(literally God Fist). At 20 years of age, Feng was the best student his school had ever seen. When his master scolded him for fighting outside the dojo, Feng killed him. Now Feng seeks the secrets of the God Fist scrolls stolen by the Mishima family, and enters the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 to do so. Asuka Kazama and Lei Wulong have connections with this ruthless, merciless Kenpo fighter. Feng severely beat Asuka's father and destroyed his dojo in his search for the scrolls. Lei is trying to capture Feng for his similar actions in China.
Feng Wei was successful in retrieving the treasured "God Fist" scroll from the Mishima Zaibatsu during The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. The scroll merely stated, "Destroyer of all styles, the one true ultimate style, it transcends the power of The Dragon God, which exceeds all human ability." Dumbfounded, Feng Wei receives information about The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6, and, seeking more information, he once again looks towards Japan.

Jinpachi Mishima
Jinpachi Mishima (三島 仁八 Mishima Jinpachi?) is the primary antagonist of Tekken 5. He is the father of Heihachi Mishima and the founder of the Mishima Zaibatsu. He was defeated during a hostile takeover by his son 40 years before the fifth King of Iron Fist Tournament. As Heihachi started to steer the company into the military industry (something Jinpachi had wished against) Jinpachi tried to retake the Zaibatsu, but failed, and was imprisoned below the Hon-Maru, one of Heihachi's compounds, where he died sometime later of starvation.
In Lei Wulong's interlude, Jinpachi tells him that after he died, a certain "thing" (claimed to be the devil in Jinpachi's ending) took over his body, resurrecting him and endowing him with supernatural power.
Hon-Maru was left practically in ruins after the King of Iron Fist Tournament 4 when G Corporation, a rival of the Mishima Zaibatsu, attacked with a unit of Jack-4s once Jin left after defeating both Kazuya and Heihachi. Kazuya stayed and fought alongside Heihachi for a short time, but then threw Heihachi into the group of Jack-4s to cover his own escape. One of them self-destructed, seemingly killing Heihachi. The resulting explosion released Jinpachi from the basement of Hon-Maru, and the demon that possesses his body seeks to destroy all existence. Jinpachi emerged from the rubble to seize control of the Mishima Zaibatsu.
After taking back the Zaibatsu, Jinpachi could feel the entity which controlled him slowly dominating his mind and will. He decided to host a fifth King of Iron Fist Tournament, hoping that one of the fighters that emerged would be able to defeat him and kill him. On a more personal level, Jinpachi wrote a letter to his old friend, Wang Jinrei, asking him to enter the tournament and stop the cursed Mishima bloodline.
At the game's climax, Jinpachi's mind is taken over by the devil, and he is engaged in mortal combat with his great-grandson, Jin Kazama, who ultimately defeats him and takes control of the Mishima Zaibatsu.

Lili (リリ Riri?) is a Monaco native, and the only daughter of a wealthy and pacifistic oil magnate. She resides in a very luxurious suburban mansion with her father and her butler, Sebastian. Her real name is Emily Rochefort. At the age of twelve, Lili struggled violently to free herself from a group of kidnappers, and she unexpectedly took out one of her captors. At that moment, she first realized she took pleasure in defeating her opponents.
This does come with a setback, however. She only wants to please her good-hearted father, whom she knows loathes fighting because he wants his daughter to be a prim and proper lady and not a thug. Troubled by her situation, she tells herself, I don't want Father to be upset with me... but I also want to fight. Her desire to fight could not be controlled any longer, and for this reason, she uses her family's private jet to travel abroad to take part in worldwide street fighting tournaments, which she enjoyed immensely. This was done under the guise of a "simple vacation" from her homeland to calm her father's suspicions for the moment.
One day, after defeating an opponent in San Francisco, she acquired an invitation to The King Of Iron Fist Tournament 5. Lili noticed that the sponsor of the tournament, the Mishima Zaibatsu, had caused her father much trouble in the past. With the assumption of the Mishima Zaibatsu being a useful potential asset to her father, she was determined to take part in the tournament and win to put an end to her father's business troubles. (Her in-game epilogue shows her happy that she won the tournament, thinking that she has in turn made her father ecstatic, but she has actually caused her father's oil company to file for bankruptcy after the split-up of the Mishima Zaibatsu with the company.)
Lili thus participated in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 without telling her father. However, after losing to her rival Asuka, her chances of winning failed miserably, causing her to return home to Monaco in defeat. What's worse, her father knew of her involvement in the tournament (presumably thanks to one or both of the men in the black suits in one official artwork of Lili), and as punishment for her disobedience he forbade her from leaving the house until further notice, thwarting her chances of a rematch with Asuka.
Sometime after she was grounded, the Mishima Financial Group seized the oil fields her family owned and profited from. Rochefort Enterprises fell into disrepute, and Lili's father (who was forced to cope with the takeover) collapsed from overexertion. Lili, who was worried about her father's well being, believed that if she were able to reclaim her father's oil fields somehow from the Mishima Financial Group, she would without a doubt remove his anxiety. While she deeply thought how to best act, the Mishima Financial Group announced the opening of the King of the Iron Fist Tournament 6. Believing this was her big break, Lili entered the tournament for her father's sake.

An international intelligence agent considered highly skilled and iron-hearted, codename Raven (レイヴン Reivun?). Apart from a scar in the shape of an "X" on his face, his details, including age and nationality, are unknown. Raven entered the fifth tournament to find out who or what is behind the event. Raven makes his first appearance in the opening movie for Tekken 5, as he witnesses the attack on Hon-Maru by Jack-4s while on a mission to look into the Mishima Zaibatsu and G Corporation, as well as the subsequent explosion. It seems that he is the first one to report of Heihachi Mishima's supposed demise.
After The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, Raven encounters Heihachi Mishima, who was presumed to be dead... They began to fight. Before a victor could be decided, Raven received orders to return to headquarters, and he had to withdraw from battle. After that encounter, the battle between both the Mishima Zaibatsu and G-Corporation intensified. In order to prevent any further losses, Raven is sent to investigate the Mishima Zaibatsu once again via The King Of Iron Fist Tournament 6.
Many have noted Raven's similarity to characters played by actor Wesley Snipes. His dyed hairstyle is similar to the character Simon Phoenix from Demolition Man and his black clothing, sunglasses, and personality are reminiscent of the title character of Blade. However, when Electronic Gaming Monthly asked if the similarities were intentional, Namco stated that they simply wanted a true ninjutsu practitioner and a "cool black guy" for a character and that the similarities were purely coincidental.
Darrin Henson will be playing Raven in the movie Tekken.

Sergei Dragunov
A member of SPETSNAZ, Sergei Dragunov (セルゲイ・ドラグノフ Serugei Doragunofu?) is considered the very symbol of fear on the battlefield whose overwhelming fighting prowess has earned him the title "The White Angel of Death". Involved in the investigation of an unknown body that fell to Earth in Siberia, Dragunov receives special orders presumably regarding Devil Jin, and enters the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 in order to carry them out. His precise motivations and the true nature of his orders are unknown. In an in-game cutscene before his sub-boss fight against Raven, the agent says that he is "on to your [Dragunov's] organization."

Introduced in Tekken 6 and Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion

Alisa Bosconovitch
Little is also known about Alisa Bosconovitch (アリサ・ボスコノビッチ Arisa Bosukonobicchi?). She amplifies many of her attacks with collapsible jet pack like wings from her back and rockets from her feet. She can also extend chainsaws from her lower arms and her body parts are detachable, they instantly grow back in what appears to be nanoparticle-assisted regeneration. All of her body parts appear to be non-critical, some of her attacking moves involves removing her own head to use as a weapon or even a makeshift explosive device with no ill effects, and arms can be torn off by the opponent or even used as improvised missiles. She has pink hair and green eyes, and speaks in a very polite manner. Tekken developer and Executive Producer of Tekken 6 Katsuhiro Harada describes her as "a robot created in the image of Dr. Bosconovitch's daughter."

Azazel (アザゼル Azazeru?) is making his debut in Tekken 6 as the primary antagonist. He was most likely named after the famed demon in Judeo-Christian mythology, Azazel.
Little is known about Azazel's history, other than that he is the embodiment of the ultimate evil guarded in a tomb by Zafina, set to be released after the clash of "two evil stars".
Azazel looks much like the Egyptian god Set, with blue-gray skin, a large, spiked tail used for attacking, and huge spikes of ice/crystal growing out of his forearms. He also wears an Egyptian ceremonial headdress and loincloth.
Like many supernatural entities before him, Azazel appears to have the advantage of superpowered abilities over his opponents. These include a powerful stun attack (similar to Jinpachi Mishima), and eye lasers (similar to Devil Jin, Devil, and Angel). He also appears to have the ability to summon boulders from the ground and set them on his opponents. He can also summon scarabs made of ice to attack opponents and parts of his body get destroyed after taking too much damage.

Bob (ボブ Bobu?) is a fighter who hails from America as a martial arts legend. However, due to being unable to defeat larger opponents, Bob disappears from the fighting world and remains in hiding for a few years, with many wondering about his whereabouts.
With The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 drawing near, Bob finally returns, and stuns everyone with his new figure, that of a morbidly obese man. Though Bob claims to have engineered his body to increase his weight and strength while maintaining his speed, few believe him, and most of his fans lose their faith and respect for him.
In order to test his new power and regain his popularity, Bob enters The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6.
Tekken developer and Executive Producer of Tekken 6 Katsuhiro Harada describes Bob as "a freestyle karate practitioner from the U.S."[17]
Bob ranked 10th on GameDaily's top 10 ugliest game characters list.[18]

Lars Alexandersson
Lars Alexandersson (ラース・アレクサンダーソン Rāsu Arekusandāson?) is a Swedish officer in the Tekken Force who is now leading a rebellion against the Mishima Financial Group. He is also Heihachi Mishima's illegitimate son. Lars has an alternate costume created by Masashi Kishimoto, manga-ka of Naruto.

Leo (レオ Reo?) is the son of a world-famous male spelunker and a top female executive of the biotech firm, G Corporation.
Leo's father disappeared during an exploration when he was a child, but even so, he strives to become just like him. Leo grows up to be an upright person, but these happy days come to an abrupt end when his mother is killed.
Saddened by the tragic event, Leo shuts everyone out. Some time later, the police inconclusively end the murder investigation without explanation. Leo continues the investigation. Not long after starting this mission, Leo discovers the existence of a person who is regarded as a hero of the G Corporation - a man by the name of Kazuya Mishima. Suspecting him of having a hand in the murder, Leo seeks to meet Kazuya but finds it impossible to get near him due to his newly-acquired status within the G Corporation.
Nevertheless, Leo hears news of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 being held by the Mishima Financial Group. Finding out that Kazuya will be participating in it, Leo follows suit, thinking that it's the only chance to find answers.
Tekken developer and Executive Producer of Tekken 6 Katsuhiro Harada describes Leo as "a Bajiquan practitioner from Germany whose father is a famous spelunker."[17]
