Tekken 7's roster is filled with 36 characters you'll love (or love to hate). Most of the character list is slotted with returning fighters, but there are also 10 series newcomers making their debut in Tekken 7. There is one extra character releasing alongside the game via downloadable content, plus an additional two fighters slated to join the roster via the season pass.
Below you can find the launch roster for Tekken 7. We've divided the character lists into newcomers and returning fighters. Keep in mind, if you don't like the base costumes they're wearing, there is an extensive customization system that will let you give your favorite character a look from a previous Tekken or a whole new style entirely.
