Bandai Namco Entertainment / ONE37pm

Tekken fever is at an all-time high right now! We got our very first look at legit gameplay for Tekken 8 during the 2022 Tokyo Game Show, which threw everyone into a frenzy. The Tekken: Bloodline Netflix animated series was shockingly good, plus Tekken 7 is still being played at a professional level within the FGC (Fighting Game Community). Bandai Namco's standout 3D fighter has managed to stay relevant for so long due to several key factors, one of them being its amazing cast of characters. Tekken is a fighting game series that features murderous senior citizens, badass ninjas, massive fighting bears, and even mechanical pugilists. Now that Tekken 8 is set to make a huge impact on the fighting game genre in 2024 and beyond, we're going to rank the 25 best Tekken characters of all time for all you diehard fans out there.
