[hide]*1 Introduction



598499-devil superDevil (also called Devil Kazuya in Tekken 5) was first introduced in Tekken and returns to Tekken 2 as well as Tekken Tag Tournament. Devil represents Kazuya Mishima after the Devil Gene takes over him.

Interestingly enough, Kazuya's soul wasn't consumed completely by Devil (due to a struggle against Angel). The only time Devil left Kazuya was when he tried to inhabit inside the womb of Jun Kazama and posses her unborn child, Jin Kazama, but in an epic battle, Jun defeated Devil and saved her son. Since Tekken 4, it looks like Kazuya and Devil act as one entity.

However, as demonstrated in Kazuya's Tekken 4 ending, he was able to gain control over Devil, which may demonstrate that Devil could simply be Kazuya's alternative form - yet the same person (Devil once controlled Kazuya, which was demonstrated when Kazuya's eyes were glowing red, but seeing that Kazuya could fight Devil's control and revert to his usual self, it could be factual that now Kazuya controls Devil). Of course, whether this is true or not remains to be unseen, but fans alike have theorized that Kazuya and Devil are now one entity under the control of Kazuya (in Tekken 5, Kazuya, at will, changes into his devil form to escape Hon-Maru).

To avoid confusion with Devil Jin, the "devil" that inhabits Kazuya is simply referred to as "Devil". No other character carrying the Devil Gene have referred themselves to simply "Devil" except Kazuya. However, Devil is referred to as Devil Kazuya in Kazuya's Tekken 5 Prologue.

Devil served as the final boss in Tekken 2.


  • General
  • Devil is a 3rd costume for Kazuya Mishima making him enable to shoot lasers or fly.
  • He is unlocked by winning eight levels in Galaga mini game without losing a life.
  • Devil's sub-bosses are Heihachi Mishima (Stage 8), Jun Kazama (Stage 9), and Angel as the final boss.
  • To unlock Devil and Angel, you must complete Arcade Mode with Kazuya.
  • If you selected Devil and Kazuya Mishima as tag partners, one would transform into the other when tagging, instead of the usual tag animation. This transformation was also accompanied with a small stun if it connected with the other player, giving you enough time to transform without suffering a counter attack. This also works for Unknown, Tetsujin and Mokujin if they are imitating Kazuya and have Devil as their partner, when tagging.
  • All Jack robots (Prototype Jack, Jack-2, and Gun Jack) will go haywire if Devil's or Angel's laser strikes them.
  • True Ogre is his rival. However, since Tekken Tag Tournament is a non-canon game their rivialry is also non-canon.
  • Devil is the sub-boss for Jin Kazama, True Ogre, and Jun Kazama

Ending Animation "Destruction"Edit

The camera pans in on Devil from the right, showing only Devil's upper body at first. The camera pans out to show Devil's whole body shortly afterward. Devil begins walking towards the screen. The camera zooms in on Devil's face as it fires a powerful beam from its forehead. The beam goes through the roof of the building that Devil is in. It causes a small explosion and a small fire. Through the smoke of the fire, Devil is shown standing on the roof of the building and flapping its wings. Soon, the smoky view disappears, and Devil is shown clearly, still flapping its wings as a dark shadow appears every time they close. Finally, Devil flies up towards the moon, which is full.

Pre-fight and Win AnimationsEdit

Pre-fight AnimationEdit

Devil slowly rises from a crouching position until it is fully standing.

Note: This pre-fight animation will only show before fighting Devil in "Arcade" mode. It will not show up if it is a regular fight against Devil.

Devil moves its arms around, first upwards, then forwards, and then downwards slightly, until it is in its fighting stance.

Note: Because none of the characters in Tekken 2 have normal pre-fight animations, this pre-fight animation is not in Tekken 2. It is only in Tekken Tag Tournament.

Win AnimationsEdit

Random: Devil brings its left hand downwards in a "hammer punch" style, and then it spreads its left arm to the left side.

Note: Devil only has this win animation in Tekken 1, due to being nothing more than a palette swap for Kazuya.

1 or 3: Devil is crouching, with its arms covering its face while energy surrounds Devil. A few moments later, Devil flies up into the air slightly and starts firing a beam from its forehead up towards the sky, with its arms at its sides. 2 or 4: Devil crosses its arms, and it turns its head towards the left.

But his researchers succeeded into finding samples of Ogre's blood and tissue. Heihachi then used him for experimentation, the experiment failed however. Instead Heihachi searched for Jin who transformed into a Devil. During his research, he discovered a 20 year old photograph which show a purple-skinned fighter burnt to a crisp. Heihachi learned that the picture was Kazuya when Heihachi killed him and threw him into a volcano 20 years ago. He also learned that he joined a bio-tech research team by the name G Corporation.

His remains were kept there. Heihachi sent his squad of Tekken Force soldiers to attack G Corporation and to also steal his research data (the Devil remains). Kazuya learns that he was a target in the attack. Heihachi was shocked when he learns that his plans were foiled by the retaliation of Kazuya Mishima. He announces The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4.
