Tekken 3


Tekken Tag Tournament, Tekken Tag Tournament 2


Page Updated:  Apr. 24th, 2023

Tiger was an eye-catching and humorous secret character in Tekken 3 & Tekken Tag... even though he's simply a "palette swap" of Eddy Gordo. Back then, he didn't have any unique moves or mannerisms, besides the random disco dancing in his endings. His gimmick was halfway decent comic relief in the early Tekken series, and that was basically the extent of his design.

I was surprised to see Namco finally "officially" bring him back Tekken Tag Tournament 2... but at the same time, TTT2 is a game filled with nostalgia... which is clearly Tiger Jackson's department! ;) Tiger is one of the few TTT2 characters who doesn't have many unique moves... but he does have several that distinguish him from Eddy & Christie. Plus, all that ridiculous dancing has to count for something. ;) His new get-up with all the flashy lights is also pretty hilarious and entertaining as well.
