Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

A list of characters introduced in Tekken 5/Dark Resurrection.

Asuka Kazama

You're gonna get hurt!

Jin Kazama's Osaka cousin. Asuka's first reason to enter the tourney in 5 was to take out the person who put her father in the hospital (that would be Feng). Lei Wulong gave her the info, and even though she's unable to find Feng, she just stays in the tournament for "fun". She doesn't win, though manages to make a Rival out of Lili in Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection. In Tekken 6, Asuka finds out that her cousin Jin is trying to take over the world, so she gets ready to kick his ass like any other loving family member would. Seeing as they're part of the Mishimas, that isn't surprising.

Interestingly enough about Asuka, she seems to be able to counter the Devil Gene. In her Tekken 5 ending, Jin's horns, tattoos, and wings all disappear at her touch.

Tropes associated with Asuka:

Feng Wei


Feng is the star pupil of the "God Fist" style. However, in process of his show of power, he broke the dojo's rules, is scolded by his master and he kills him. He intends on getting the God Fist scroll, and breaks dojos here and there, and eventually enters the King of Iron Fist tournament. He eventually found the scroll, but it only gives the overview of the ultimate style, which prompts him to re-enter the next tournament.

Tropes associated with Feng Wei:


I cannot allow you to interfere.

A Canadian spec-ops agent sent to investigate the Mishima Zaibatsu. Everything about him is shrouded in mystery, except that he knows Ninjitsu for some reason.

Tropes associated with Raven:

Armor King II

A new Masked Luchador taking after the deceased Armor King. His background is shrouded with mystery, but his fighting style was one of quite the brutal Heel. He first appears in the 5th King of Iron Fist tournament, setting his sights on Craig Marduk, and swiftly kicked him in the ass.

He later reappears in the 6th tournament, confronted by both Marduk and King II, whereas this Armor King reveals that he is the younger brother of the original Armor King... and he certainly isn't going to forgive Marduk that easily for killing his brother.

Tropes associated with Armor King II:

Emilie "Lili" de Rochefort

Shhh! Please don't tell my father.

Debuting in Dark Resurrection, Lili is the only daughter of a rich tycoon company owner. Has a butler named Sebastian, and while she has the makings of a Spoiled Brat, she's not quite and instead is a graceful Ojou. At one point, she was kidnapped by mafia who tried to get some ransom from her... but they didn't expect her to struggle that hard, so much that she develops her own lust of battle out of that fight. Unfortunately for Lili, her father abhors violence, and she still respects him, but at the same time, she just can't let go of her battle lust. Solution? Make excuses of traveling, then participate in street fights.

Until at one point in a street fighting, she managed to snatch an invitation to the 5th King of Iron Fist Tournament from an opponent she defeated (suspiciously looking like Forrest Law). Learning that it's from her father's rival company the Mishima Zaibatsu, Lili entered to help her father take down the Zaibatsu so there would be no more rivals. That doesn't work so well, after Asuka Kazama whooped her hard, and her father found out her 'hidden activities', resulting her to be grounded. In the eve of the 6th tournament, however, the Rochefort company is in danger of bankruptcy, and for Lili, the only way to save it is to... win the tournament, so she decided to enter again, maybe with her father's reluctant blessing this time. But, then again, that gives her a chance to take revenge on Asuka...

Tropes associated with Lili:

Sergei Dragunov


A Spetsnaz officer working with the Russian government to investigate the Mishima Zaibatsu. He is feared on the battlefield as "The White Angel of Death", which could be a reference to Alfredo Astiz.

Tropes associated with Dragunov:

  • Badass
  • Covered with Scars: Has two very noticable scars on his face (one through his lips and down his chin, the other across his nose), and also has several all over his torso and arms (including a bullet wound in his left shoulder).
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: To an extreme degree.
  • Hidden Depths: According to Word of God, he enjoys singing outside of battle. The fact that he hums in one of his Tekken 6 win poses could be an indicator of this.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: A very pale, almost-white blue.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is based on the two Russian rifle designers Sergei Simonov and Evgeny Dragunov.
  • The Rival: Of Raven.
  • The Stoic
  • Tessho Genda: His seiyuu (Guile has betrayed us!).
  • Visual Pun: One of the items you can equip him with in both Tekken 5 and 6 is a sniper rifle, to be exact, a dragunov.
  • The Voiceless: He literally doesn't make a sound unless he's attacking or being hit (or, in the case of one of his Tekken 6 winning poses, humming).
    • Tekken 6's Scenario Campaign reveals that he is perfectly capable of speech -- he just doesn't do it very often (this was also revealed via Word of God prior to the release of 6 -- the same source also claimed that, outside of battle, he enjoys singing). When he does, it's often short, to-the-point sentences, or single words. The players still don't actually hear him speak, though, as all of the in-level dialogue of Scenario Campaign is text-based.

Jinpachi Mishima

My goal...My Goal Is to destroy all existence!

The former head of the Mishima Zaibatsu, Jinpachi is betrayed by his son, Heihachi, when he takes over his company. He tries to get it back, but Heihachi imprisons him in an underground compound called Hon-Maru. Jinpachi is imprisoned there for years and died. That is, until the Devil Gene resurrects him.

Jinpachi is released when an explosion from Hon-Maru frees him. He regains control of the Mishima Zaibatsu afterwards. However, the devil begins to take over his mind. Because of this, Jinpachi hosts the 5th Tournament to make one of the fighters defeat him and kill him.

Tropes associated with Jinpachi:

  • Ambiguously Brown: We know he's Japanese, but he's quite tan.
  • Back from the Dead: Resurrected by the Devil Gene.
  • Badass Beard and Badass Mustache: And it's just as ridiculous as the rest of his family.
  • Badass Grandpa
  • Battle Aura
  • Belly Mouth
  • Big Bad: Not of his own volition though.
  • Body Horror: His transformation into his Devil Form.
  • Chikao Ohtsuka: His seiyuu. Does a dual voice with Takeshi Aono while in devil form.
  • Death Seeker
  • Fighting From the Inside: Not too successful, but he does manage to leave a few clues here and there.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom
  • Incendiary Exponent
  • One-Winged Angel
  • Out of the Inferno: Tekken 5 intro.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can
  • Ship Tease / Ho Yay: With Jinrei.
  • SNK Boss: For one, he's a Mishima, so you can already faintly imagine that he's just as broken as his son, grandson, and great-grandson. But that's just the tip of the iceburg. To clarify, he has a move that stuns you for about three seconds and immediately forces you into an upright position, regardless of your current status. Given the series' fabled penchant for being a juggle jamboree, you can surmise that this is not a good thing. He can also phase to close the distance, and the weakest of his attacks takes off a sizable chunk of your health and is comboable. One of his attacks allows him to steal your lifeforce and heal himself. He also loves to charge up and shoot an Unblockable Attack fireball from the mouth on his abdomen. Normally, this isn't too bad, but every once in a while, Jinpachi likes to change things up and fire a second fireball in tandem (you had better keep sidestepping). Even worse; there's a smaller chance that he'll just decide to resort to overkill and fire a volley of fireballs (we're talking about at least five in rapid succession). And if he combines this with the stun trick above, there's nothing you can do. Nothing.
    • As one half of the first set of minibosses in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, he loses some of his abilities, specifically leeching health and stun stop. While he still has the fireballs, he can throw one from above. And he can combo juggles with aerial attacks. Luckily, you can play as him in that game.
  • Super-Powered Evil Side
  • Tears of Blood: In his ending (and a Downer Ending at that), Jinpachi is saddened that no one could kill him, thus making his efforts in vain. The devil then completely takes over his body and forces him to transform again before presumably flying away to destroy all of existence. Way to go, jerk.
  • Voice Changeling: In Tekken 5, he has a normal voice (in normal mode, obviously), but reverts to a dual voice in Devil mode.
    • This doesn't explain why he has a dual voice in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 even though Jinpachi is not in Devil mode.
