You can find a deeper dive into each of the characters below:
It wouldn’t be Tekken without Kazama, who returns in Tekken 8. Using his Devil gene to his advantage, Kazama performs a hard-hitting punch and kick, as well as some powerful combinations and finishers. Kazama will stand out with a lot of strength behind each punch.
Kazuya is back in excellent shape, starting up where Tekken 7 left off, and he is looking to take charge of and lead a war against Kazama. With his intensity, power, and screen-clearing kicks and combos, you’ll find yourself in a corner rather frequently versus Kazuya, so be prepared for his assault of attacks and force.
Jun Kazama has returned to Tekken after a long absence, and as Jin’s mother, you can expect her to play an important role in the tale. She will be someone not to underestimate as she lands extraordinary attacks and kicks that will easily overwhelm you with elegance, grace, and technique.
The fearsome beast appears in Tekken 8 looking better than ever. King’s power, grapples, and pins may easily catch you off guard and perhaps end a round or match before it ever begins, so keep your guard up when facing him.
The iconic Paul Phoenix returns in Tekken 8 with a new design, motorcycle, and set of viable moves to stay up with his rivals. Don’t expect anyone portraying Paul to be rough despite his scruffy appearance.
Lars is a formidable antagonist in Tekken 8 and can dart and run about the stage at quick speed. He has a sleek attire and a mix of kicks, grabs, and punches that can stun and shock anyone into silence. He will constantly keep you guessing, so don’t be surprised.
Law is back in the fight, this time with a bigger arsenal of attacks, tight punches, long combinations, and nunchucks to keep pummeling you until you’re dead. His muscles are not to be underestimated, as his flurry of attacks will frequently catch you off guard.
In Tekken 8, Jack-8 has never carried a bigger pistol to a fight. The massive huge machine is one of the tankiest characters on the lineup, with nearly unbreakable armor, and will definitely punish you over and over while brushing off any strikes you land in return.
Nina is returning in Tekken 8 with her gun in hand. Her put-together appearance doesn’t imply she can’t get into a battle and destroy opponents. Nina will have you trapped at practically any range by using punches, grabs, kicks, and her pistols.
Ling Xiaoyu returns to Tekken 8 with pointed toes, complicated combos, and rapid reactions that may swiftly punish and overwhelm you if you are not careful. She doesn’t let up, so hits hard at the correct time or suffers the consequences.
With his iconic fighting style, Tekken 7’s most famous and perhaps greatest new character makes an impression in Tekken 8, albeit improved for the game on PS5, Xbox, and PC. Leroy’s strengths are punches, kicks, and simply maintaining composure, which he possesses in spades in Tekken 8.
Asuka Kazama, riding her bike, lands on both wheels in Tekken 8 with her huge punches, kicks, elbows, and strikes that draw you in for a strong hit or special move. Despite the fact that Asuka isn’t as intimidating as some of the other members of this group, don’t underestimate her.
In Tekken 8, the heiress reappears. Lili is back with her sophisticated combinations, strikes, punches, kicks, and pins that may trap you and overwhelm you with her diverse moveset and combos. Lili’s ability to cover the stage at every angle, from light sweeps to overhead kicks and jumps, is not to be underestimated.
With wide sweeping kicks, two-hit combos, sweeps, and devastating kick and punch combos, Howarang martial arts talents return in Tekken 8. From hitting his opponent in the air to landing hits one after the other, Howarang is one of the best in Tekken 8.
Bryan Fury returns to Tekken in Tekken 8, this time with a powerful motivation behind his hunger for combat. Bryan Fury is a fighter to keep an eye on if you are up against him in a fight. He is capable of hitting big blows that knock opponents back and catch them off guard.
Claudio is returning after his debut in Tekken 7, as shown at the end of the Closed Network Test clip, bringing his trademark look and feel. But he does have a new clothing and, hopefully, finer assaults.
