Raven, an International intelligence organization operative, is rumored to be the best and most cruel agent. None of his background information such as his nationality, age or history is clear. Nothing is known about Raven except that he has an X scar on his face. He witnessed Heihachi Mishima being terminated by the self-destruct explosion attack of 'Jack Force' in his investigation towards Mishima Zaibatsu and G Company. After that, The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 was announced by someone. Raven decided to enter the tournament and find out the hidden truth behind the tournament.

During The King of the Iron Fist Tournament 5, Raven encounters Heihachi Mishima, who was presumed to be dead... They began to fight. Before a victor could be decided, Raven received orders to return to headquarters and had to withdraw from battle. After that encounter the battle between both the Mishima Zaibatsu and G-Corporation intensified. In order to prevent any further losses, Raven is sent to investigate the Mishima Zaibatsu once again. Master Raven took his place in Tekken 7.

So Heihachi Mishima... wasn't dead... after all. It's okay Wesley Snipes, we still love you. Raven debuted as a cool "modern ninja" in Tekken 5 and made a pretty big splash when he arrived. Worth pointing out, there also aren't many Black ninja characters out there in the fighting game world, making Raven a pretty original design from get-go. His attire is also original, and pretty damn cool if you ask me (not to mention he has some badass customizations). If you haven't noticed, Raven is much more than just a Wesley Snipes look-alike.

For a new Tekken design, Raven delivered. Raven's moveset packs over 120 unique moves & animations (which aren't shared or borrowed from other characters). He also brings a few ridiculous "teleporting" moves to the series, which some fighting game "purists" may not appreciate so much. However, his fighting style adds diversity to the roster, and also should remind "Tekken critics" that Namco obviously isn't going for total realism in Tekken. So how does he make shadow clones of himself anyway? ... damn those tricky mirrors. lol.
