In fact, it's gotten to the point where she has usurped Nina's position as the the poster girl for the Tekken series, having become the focus of the marketing and being among the first characters revealed for the game, whereas Nina had to wait until Fated Retribution to get in.
Although it should be noted Nina has been the poster girl for Fated Retribution and has a major role in the story, likely due to fans backlash over her exclusion from the arcade edition of Tekken 7. There has been some fan speculation that Angel came into existence because of Jun's presence. Heihachi's tenure as a Guest Fighter in the PS2 version of Soulcalibur II most notably, Heihachi accidentally cutting his hand with a fragment of Soul Edge has a few fans wondering about a possible connection between Soul Edge and the Mishima bloodline.
However, it should be noted that his participation in the series is non-canon. Quite a few people are convinced that Ogre is holding Jun's severed head in the arcade intro to 3.
Alternatively, this could be how Jin interpreted the events, seeing as he was knocked unconscious by Ogre. Heihachi sought the Devil Gene in 4 so that he combine his genetic material with Ogre's to gain immortality or create a new lifeform.
That her name is a phonetic spelling of Julia's initials, a video of TTT2's location test showed Jaycee has a lot of Julia's attacks, and both Jaycee and Julia having the same voice continued to fuel the fires until producer Katsuhiro Harada finally confirmed it in an interview at E3 To add to this, Ganryu, in his ending, happens to walk past Jaycee's room while she is showering, and he decides to watch, not for perverted reasons, obviouslybut to see if Jaycee is his 'beloved Julia-Chan', as he suspects.
He gets arrested for this. Many players assumed that her choice in fighting style was done to differentiate Julia from her mother. With Michelle joining the console version's roster, it's a safe assumption they were right. It is very often agreed that Tekken 2 is this compared to Tekken 1, and Tekken 3 is this compared to Tekken 2. Also, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 compared to Tekken Tag Tournament 1 and Tekken 6 which came out immediately before it, and uses largely the same engine.
Fans believe Wang to be Xiaoyu's grandfather due to Xiaoyu addressing him as such. In this case, Xiao was calling him "Grandpa" in the same way that a person would say "Gramps" to a random elder. They are distant relatives and Wang trained her at one time, but Wang is not her grandfather. For a long while, most fansites had the story of Bruce being Lei Wulong's police partner, who lost his memory on the plane crash and was manipulated by Kazuya into becoming his bodyguard.
All spoilers of games released before 2010 are left unmarked.
This seems to be a confusion from his canon story, where Lei's actual nameless partner was with Bruce in the plane.
Most of Roger and Alex's story in Tekken 2, probably due to them having little to none back then. Jun's role as Kazuya's Morality Pet in The Motion Picture is sometimes used to depict their relationship for the series proper.
Then again, Kazuya's statements of her in Tekken 6 see Alternate Character Interpretation seem to enforce this case.
Fans interpret Angel's T2 profile in a way that defies her ending movies. While those endings are not in main continuity but ARE canonthey still reflect the character herself Paul's endings wouldn't show him as a famous mathematician or a professional equestrian, why would Angel's be so contrary to her identity as Devil's mask if that were true? Additionally, there's been misinterpretation of Angel's battle with Devil over Kazuya's soul. As stated by Harada himself, Angel is actually not a part of Kazuya's soul specifically, the little remaining good ; she's simply a supernatural entity vying with Devil over Kazuya's fate.
Although in general the majority of pairing in the series are pretty obvious and almost have no intrigue, it seems that so many people like to pair Jin with Hworang and Lili with Asuka as Bi the Way.
This perhaps even led to the fact that from the fifth game of Hworang was switched to Friendly Rivalry with Steve.

In addition, fans also like to pair characters that have a temporary intersection in some games, for example Lee with Anna or Jin with Asuka. Averted in the movie: Averted with Gary Daniels as Bryan Fury, who's a real-life kickboxer, and what Bryan practices is kickboxing, so it makes sense Bryan would be portrayed by a real-life kickboxer.
The later Tekken games have been criticized for how whacky and out-of-place the new characters are, with many of them being clearly anime-influencedand that they didn't fit in game which was supposed to be game about fighters using relatively realistic martial art styles.
It reached a boiling point with Lucky Chloe, a kawaii pop idol girl who speaks in Gratuitous English and fights using dance movesmaking her quite possibly the most hated character for western audiences. However, these kinds of whacky characters have been present since the beginning — Yoshimitsu was a cyborg ninja that seemed a little out of place amid a roster of martial artists.
Not to mention KumaJack botsand Roger were in the first two games as well. And the anime influence? Been there since 3, with Xiaoyu's anime-style ending and her character hitting most of Genki Girl cliches found in anime. Even without the counter, from 3 onwards it causes the opponent to roll Bryan's Spinning Roundhouse did the samesetting them up for a running attack follow-up.
Heihachi's Iron Hand in 5 see below is a spiritual successor. Bryan's Mach Breaker in 3; decent power, really fast and sets up several options quite nicely. Tends to get blocked more in later games. Ogre's Waning Moon in 3 was considered too good. It's still a pretty good move in later incarnations but not to the same level as in that game.
Similarly, Roger and Alex's wind-up punch. Had a charging time, but it was fast enough to murder a knocked-down player. Was nerfed with Roger Jr. And now the inputs have been simplified again for TTT2, but the damage itself was nerfed, as with most other unblockables. Bob's Cracker Jacker move in 6. It's fast, has decent damage, has a large hitbox, and is hardly ever blocked by the CPUeven in Ultra Hard mode.
Heihachi's incarnation in 5. As you can see, his jab combos can punish you like there's no tomorrow and his juggles are dangerous. Summed up by this comment: His Laser Scraper combo if properly-timed and a recovery time that was faster in most situations than most of the cast gave him viable tools to constantly apply pressure on his opponents. You're looking at the sole occupant of top tier in high-level Tournament Play.
Jin endured quite a bit of Tier-Induced Scrappy disdain during this time. Steve Fox in the original PS2 version of 5 had an absurdly high priority on his jabstrings.

And if that wasn't enough, he is the only character to have a legit infinite in any Tekken ever, making him the true Game Breaker. In fact, he was considered a main reason for the Dark Resurrection update to 5. In 3, Guest Fighter Gon is this due to his really small size. To a certain extent, Dr. Bosconovitch is this as well for almost the same reasons; he can only fight either from a crouching position or from lying on the ground; he can't stand upright for more than a second. Stubborn opponents suddenly become much easier if hit with a launcher and then tag rushed.
An uppercut for juggle damage later takes care of most of her opponent's health. Their expanded tricky moves in the Tag games makes them even more so.
Furthermore, it can go into 3-ring circus, which can loop back into triple sweeps, giving them an infinite with a fair amount of mix up. Hwoarang had a hideous one that's since been patched out of Tag 2.
Note that unlike Tag 2, there's no recoverable life in Tekken 7. To be fair, Hwoarang's wall combos potentially dealt that much damage already even in Season 1, so it remains to be seen if it will be patched out this time around. Frustrated Lars mains suddenly found themselves destroying opponents with ease all over again, while many other players believe it needs to be patched out as soon as possible.
And sure enough, less than a week later, the combo string in question was nerfed.
Germans Love David Hasselhoff: According to an article in a Swedish gaming magazine, Namco introduced Lars Alexandersson for this very reason, since the Tekken series is very popular in Sweden. They also contacted the Swedish Embassy to make sure they got a realistic-sounding Swedish name. The Philippines is also known for their love of Tekken. I dunno, but it would have been nice if they were given a bit more variety. Sure, we can understand if the fundashis were worn by characters such as Heihachi or Ganryu, but Marduk and Ogre?
Speaking of swimwear, anyone find it odd that Angel is the only character to not have a bikini when two androids who, unlike Alisa, are easily recognizable as robotsa bear, a kangaroo, a dinosaur, a panda, and a person carved out of wood all get swimsuits?
Even Combot has floatation tubes. And if they wanted to not defile Angel's "pure and divine" status, they could easily give her a pareo like the ones Jun and Alisa received.
Honestly, it can't be that much racier than the customization options already present for her. In this game, True Ogre has 3 customization items that happen to be bikinis hanging off his horns; the bikinis come in 3 colors just like the swimwear for all characters that do have one. She's treated as such but she doesn't seem to do anything that would be considered wrong. It's because she is non-canon and the fact she is Jun for that matter and as such she doesn't get any development beyond the fact that she is the Tekken Tag Big Bad.
Angel can appear as the Final Boss with certain characters in Tekken 2. I think that would make her the Big Good instead of the Big Bad. With that said, Unknown. Jun's Darker and Edgier. Is Unknown actually bad? Dark Is Not Evil? I get that Lee and Violet speak English in 4. But in Tag 2, Lee speaks Japanese and Violet speaks English, even though they're basically the same character.
Lee masquaded as Violet so perhaps the different languages were so that people think he is two different people. But then, Violet speaks Japanese for most of the fight lab Didn't Lee train under Paul and Law in America for a time? He's most likely bilingual. Lee most likely stuck with English after he was exiled by Heihachi to keep appearances, as suggested by the second Troper notice that Violet speaks in fluent English in both 4 and during certain parts of TTT2, his intro quotes and [Fight Lab] ending in particular.
Once the ruse was discovered and Lee's identity revealed, he probably thought to himself, "Screw it. No need to keep this up" and decided to go back to speaking Japanese for the most part.
Why does the main page state that Tekken Blood Vengeance is canon when it is so radically different and outright contradictory to anything established previously? Xiaoyu's school uniform being a different colour, sumo wrestler and ex Mishima Zaibatsu henchman Ganryu being a school teacher, Lee also being a teacher, Panda having super speed despite being one of the slowest fighters in the franchise, Alisa having absolutely no previous evidence she even knows Xiaoyu let alone went to high school with her, no mention of her best friend Miharu, Devil Kazuya and Devil Jin's completely different look, Mokujin being a fifty foot fire demon instead of a six foot wooden dummy?
This list goes on and on I don't get it either. The BV page once had a Continuity Snarl example listing several glaring continuity errors that'd render it impossible for the movie to be canon.
Tag 2 referencing BV is fine since the game is for all intents and purposes and Sequel Hooks aside non-canon, but I can't fathom BV being canon to 7 without some sort of Hand Wave Retcon. Jaycee's name comes from Julia Chang's initials, right?
But Jaycee's ending reveals that she's filling in for a wrestler friend of hers. So does her friend go under the name "Jaycee" when she's wrestling too or a completely different ring name? If she goes by "Jaycee", why? And if not, why doesn't Julia use her friend's ring name? That, or Her friend's name really IS Jaycee! Jun's tag ending animations. Asuka with Leo on the other hand get along much better, Jun's like that with everyone.
As I doing something wrong? No, it's just that, for some reason or another, a lot of the character relationships in Tag 2 seem counter-intuitive to what canon would suggest. Additionally, Jun might have never met or even known of Asuka's existence due to raising Jin in what appears to be total seclusion.
Nina and Anna not being a cohesive unit outside of tag throws and the likehowever, is completely understandable it's been like that for It was funny that Asuka and Leo like each other for example, maybe because they both oppose Jin?
I tried it with Jin, Kuma, Alex and Roger as well. It seems she doesn't like anyone. Maybe some of this didn't carry over to the XBOX version. Whatever the case might be it's motivated me to fool around with her tropes a bit. With each new Tekken game, more and more characters are speaking the languages of their respective nations, instead of just English or Japanese as seen in Tekken 4.
Wasn't he born and raised in Sweden?
Lars works in Japan for a Japanese company. That explains the Japanese, but not the Swedish. Look, in the Tekkenverse everybody is so multilingual it's not even close to funny. Even if we just count the rival battles it seems everybody at least understands English, Japanese and Chinese. At least two of them can understand bear perfectly well and I think some of them can understand raptor and kangaroo.
Why was Christie's Grandfather in Jail? From an writer's standpoint, I'd say plot convenience. But it's possible he was framed. Gon is not owned by Namco - he is the titular character of a manga. Without permission they have no legal right to include him. As for all the other characters I ask you to expand your question with one simple sentence: Why what would be the point?
Frankly Tekken Tag 2 already suffers from too many indistinguishable characters to warrant any more. I have always wondered two things about Paul: Why was it in the original Tekken, that he was the only one of the original eight characters not to have a clone, and yet Jack had three of them? Paul's fighting style is usually described as a hybrid of different martial arts with Judo being his primary style, but to me, he seems to be mostly a Karateka.
True, he does use Judo in his throws, but so does others, and Michelle uses pro wrestling moves for her throws and she isn't listed a wrestler, so what's up? Paul does have somewhat similar moves to Kazuya and Heihachi, and likely was modified so he wouldn't be seen as a clone character. He would eventually get a clone of sorts in Bryan, whose moves are a combination of Bruce's and Paul's.
Lee and Wang were the nearest things to Paul clones in the original Tekken. Lee was a broken Law, that had a couple of Paul's kicks I believe which doesn't really show, because Paul isn't exactly known as a kicking character. Wang had a variation of Paul's death fist, but overall he's probably the least 'cloney' boss character in the game. Who sent the Jack robots to kill Heihachi and destroy Honmaru? It was confirmed in Tekken 6 that it was G-Corp, presumably to remove the closest thing the series had to a Big Bad and was also possibly targeting Kazuya as well.
Kazuya, in return, proceeded to slaughter the G-Corp members who presumably sent the Jacks against him, and take over the company too. She seems to have one move where she can hover off the ground and dash for a few seconds, and while she lacks any kind of wings, it wouldn't surprise me if a Centuries old Vampire could fly somehow.
I'm just not really sure if she can or not. Jun dislikes deception, yet she tells her son if anything happened to her to find Heihachi. Someone she should know all about how deceitful he is? What, the fact he keeps bears enough to sway her? Is there any canon proof that Jun actually knows Michelle, Lei or Angel beyond beating them up at tournaments? What I have always wondered is why in-universe she didn't send him off to Asuka Kazama's family.
Supplemental material such as comics and films suggests she does, and if you look at Angel's ending it's strongly hinted that Jun is The Lancer to her. But if they're out let's look at the idea below, who does Jun get along with? Nina, retrospectively, and I think she was okay with Baek as well, as in more positive than most of the cast.
But why Heihachi of all people? Just chalk it up to having horrible taste in men? Now that you mention it, considering she doesn't seem to get along with Asuka in Tag tournament 2, it's possible she's estranged from that side of the family. It would explain why she never told Jin to go to them and sent him to Heihachi instead. I headcanon the idea that the new Darker and Edgier Jun that we see in Tag 2 is actually the kind of agent that her Kazama clan intended her to be, as if it had removed all of her 'weakness' so to speak, and restored her to what was considered her default state, or prime.
It's possible that the Kazama clan were rather ruthless in their morality and that Jun wasn't all flower power initially, but rather grew away from her clan and became the iconic caring Jun possibly due to her relationship with Kazuya, or being a mother to Jin. Jun was caught between a rock and a hard place, and thus took the option that would give Jin more time to train before inevitably needing to come to blows with Heihachi.
He would have gone home short a couple of limbs if he tried. Jun kicked Devil's ass and could handily handle either Ogre. She wouldn't just break Heihachi's arm she'd rip it right off. Two thoughts on Alisa; one of them being questionable: I mean, it wouldn't make much sense for her to be able to feel pain, when there are probably ways for a machine like herself to monitor physical condition, and 2 According to the main page for this section, all females except for Xiaoyu, Jun and I guess Leo fall under Fanservice Packhavely impressive busts, but I never thought she was that big Raven doesn't because he's Lars' assistant at the time, so there's that.
But every other character does. I really don't get it. So why is Bryan Fury apparently the only character in the series with Balls of Steel being unaffected by Nina's low blow kickwhen the Jack series bots and Alisa shouldn't even have the requisite parts to be affected by such attacks. Alisa being made to mimic humans closely makes sense in a Gone Horribly Right sort of way, but why would anyone design the Jack bots with the ability to feel pain in a body part they really shouldn't even have?
That is a very good question; I've never really thought about it before. Your answer about Alisa is almost certainly correct as, despite the removable arms and explosives, she seems to have been made to be almost completely human. It may even be that she doesn't even feel pain but rather is designed to mimic it.
As for Jack it would appear to be nothing but plain old bad game design as the early Jack's appear to have been modelled after the T model Terminator and the later ones are just hulking great lumps of steel; so there genuinely is no reason why there would be anything down there even if you went to the logical extremes of saying that he has some kind of power core or off-switch between his legs.
After all it even works against the likes of Yoshimitsu who is wearing power armour or Mokujin who is made out of wood. Some continuity would have been nice. Why is Jin Kazama treated both by the game and this wiki as retaining his Hero status in Tekken 6?
To this troper's eyes, he's simply a well-written villain ; he had a good reason for starting WWIII in his opinion, but that doesn't exactly wash away the blood of innocents that he's drenched in by the time he defeats Azazel. Paul, Lars and Heihachi all prove that the strength of people is tough enough to take down supernaturals in the Tekken universe, so Jin's assertion that he is the only person capable of defeating Azazel seems like pure arrogance.
Sometimes you have to Take a Third Optionand Jin But Lars wasn't actually able to kill Azazel. He beat him in a fight, but the latter just got back up again.
