BIO:

True Ogre is Ogre's ultimate form. The God of Fighting... this legendary beast came around during the end of The King of Iron Fist 3. The Native American legend states that the Ogre is the war weapon which creatures from outer space left on earth in ancient time. It understands entire structures of all living and artificial beings, and absorbs them. It wanders the earth in search of strong souls. True Ogre was defeated by Jin Kazama in Tekken 3.

True Ogre was a original-looking and badass beast in Tekken 3. He made a decent final boss... but in my opinion, he never really fit into the heart & soul of Tekken. However, he was pretty fun to use and fight against back in the day. His return in Tekken Tag was also pretty cool, although he still borrowed many moves from other characters. For the record, I think Ogre's "original" design is cooler (Ancient Ogre)... however, I'll admit that True Ogre does offer something completely original in the Tekken series, and breaks up the monotony of serious martial arts fighters. So in that sense, he can be called effective in the series.

I was surprised so see Namco bring True Ogre back in Tekken Tag 2... pleasantly surprised. While I still don't think he "fits in", his updated moveset and heavily detailed character model is no doubt very impressive. Yet again, True Ogre makes for an effective boss... *ehem* one of the effective bosses of TTT2. ;) Also worth mentioning... some of his customizations in TTT2 are awesome (and hilarious). Taking True Ogre to color edit mode is also too much fun. :)
