Bryan Fury (ブライアン・フューリー Buraian Fyūrī?) is a character in the Tekken fighting game series. Bryan first appeared in Tekken 3, and he has returned in all subsequent Tekken games. Bryan is popular among fans for his ruthless personality, hard-hitting fighting style and trademark evil laugh.


Bryan was a soldier in the US Army, who transferred to the Interpol Division of the Hong Kong Police Force. He was a skilled detective, though always followed by dark rumors. Whilst investigating the drug trade, fellow Hong Kong Interpol detective Lei Wulong discovered that Byran had connections with drug dealers. Bryan was killed in a shoot-out in Hong Kong, possibly by Lei.[8]

Bryan's corpse was transported to a laboratory belonging to Doctor Abel, a doctor willing to do anything to rival the creations of the genius scientist, Doctor Bosconovitch. Doctor Abel brought Bryan back to life through the use of cybernetic enhancements. To perfect him as a prototype for a cyborg army, Dr. Abel sent him off to steal data from Dr Bosconovitch that would complete him. Bryan originally entered the third King of Iron Fist Tournament under these auspices, and targeted Yoshimitsu, a known acquaintance of Dr Bosconovitch, in order to try and find the data he needed.

Bryan appears to have been unable to get the data he needed from Yoshimitsu or Dr Bosconovitch, and subsequently realized that his life was coming to an end. On returning to Dr Abel, Bryan realized Abel had abandoned him, and had taken up working for the Mishima Zaibatsu as its top scientific advisor. Dr Abel no longer cared about what became of his obsolete cyborg creation. Bryan despised both Dr Abel for abandoning him, and Heihachi Mishima for taking Dr Abel away from him. He entered the fourth Iron Fist Tournament in order to take control of the Mishima Zaibatsu and get Dr Abel to modify his body and prolong his life.[9]

Bryan's plans did not go as hoped and he ended up attempting to raid the Mishima Zaibatsu by force. He was discovered injured in the Mishima Zaibatsu's vault by Yoshimitsu, who helped him escape.[10] Bryan awoke in Dr Bosconovitch's lab, where the doctor informed him he could upgrade his body. Bryan entrusted himself to the doctor, but, on awaking, realized his body was the same as before. Doctor Bosconovitch explained he needed more time to fully understand Bryan's body, but that in the mean time he was able to fit him with a perpetual power generator as an emergency measure, that would extend his life. Bryan lashed out and attacked the doctor and killed the Manji Clan members standing guard in the lab.[11]

Yoshimitsu had sworn vengeance on Bryan for attacking his rescuers, and prevented Bryan from getting far in his attempts to test the power of his generator in the fifth tournament. Enraged, Bryan began joining different battlefields, something that wasn't in short supply now that Jin Kazama had succeeded as head of the Zaibatsu, and was now waging global warfare. At this time, Bryan ended up holed up in an abandoned mansion, an ex-G Corporation testing facility, with a host of escaped G-Corp human experiments. He claims he was using the position in order to bait in strong opponents to test himself against. Eventually boring of this, when Jin announced the 6th tournament, Bryan joined it, seeking a fight that would sate his appetite.

The cancellation on the 6th tournament sent Bryan back into warzones, where he went on indiscriminate rampages.[12] He ended up in a conflict zone in the USA, where a man named Bob confronted him in an effort to stop his trail of destruction.[13]


Bryan is brutish, unfeeling, and overall psychotic. Throughout the entire Tekken series, it is clear that Bryan's motivation is nothing more than to create havoc and misery wherever he goes. His selfishness has been shown multiple times, like when he betrayed Doctor Bosconovitch and Yoshimitsu very shortly after Yoshimitsu saved him from death.

Bryan rarely talks and usually expresses his delight in watching others suffering through maniacal laughter and unhinged smirks. Noticeably, in the crossover game Street Fighter X Tekken, Bryan talks much more often then he does in any of the Tekken games he is in (which is also true for his partner, Jack-X). He does however speak in full sentences in his Tekken 5 interludes and also in the Scenario Campaign mode in Tekken 6, although in the latter his voice is not heard.


Bryan has buzzed silver gray hair and blue eyes. He has a tattoo on the left side of neck and his outfits often have a police or military theme.

Tekken 3

PART MAN, PART COP... ALL ZOMBIE. Bryan Fury, a former Soldier turned officer in the International Police Organization, was killed in a shoot-out in Hong Kong.

Bryan's corpse was transported to the laboratory of a man named Doctor Abel. This 88-year-old scientist was fairly famous in the underground society, but his findings were often preceded by Doctor Bosconovitch's. However, at last, he came to the last step of completing his master project... the Cyborg Army. Dr. Abel thought that a perfect cyborg must have the mechanics built by his rival, Dr. Bosconovitch, so he reanimated Fury's body and sent him off to collect this data.

In his former life, Bryan was known as a skillful detective, but on the other side, he was always followed by dark rumors. Investigating the Hong Kong drug trade, Lei Wulong discovered that Fury had connections with drug dealers.

Bryan sneaks into the 'King of Iron Fist Tournament', targeting Yoshimitsu, who has strong ties with Bosconovitch.[7]


Tekken 3 Bryan Fury - Last Laugh

Ending Description, "Last Laugh": Bryan is running when a group of Tekken Force soldiers flash a bright light at Bryan and begin opening fire. Bryan shields himself as he runs towards the tank in the back of them. He ripped a part of the tank off and throws it at the Tekken Force soldiers who are attempting to flee. It ends with an explosion. Bryan then laughs maniacally.

Tekken 4

Version 1:
Bryan came to the realization that his life was quickly coming to an end. Two years ago, the Mishima Zaibatsu recruited Doctor Abel as its top scientific advisor. When this happened, Abel abandoned Bryan without giving a second thought to the now-obsolete cyborg's well being.

Bryan knew that the only person capable of extending his life was Abel, his creator. Bryan despised both Heihachi Mishima, the man who took Abel away from him, and Abel himself for abandoning him.

One day, Bryan heard news of the King of Iron Fist Tournament 4, and decided to enter the Tournament. He entered knowing that it would probably be his final fight. As he trained, Bryan sensed that his death was quietly approaching.

Despite his impending death, Bryan's physical strength did not diminish. On the contrary, Bryan's muscles flowed with energy that made him more powerful than before. Along with this new strength, Bryan developed an almost uncontrollable rage that also manifested itself in his outward physical appearance.

Bryan staked everything on this one hope: if he won the Tournament, he would become the head of the Mishima Zaibatsu. More importantly, if Bryan defeated Heihachi Mishima in the tournament, he could easily take total control over the Mishima Zaibatsu to do his bidding.

If all went as planned, Bryan would command Abel to modify his body to prolong his life. This would also be an opportunity for him to upgrade his body.

It would be his opportunity to upgrade himself to the most powerful being in existence.

Version 2:
Bryan realizes his life is coming to an end, but knows that the person who can help is his creator, Doctor Abel.

However, Dr. Abel had gotten rid of him 2 years ago when Heihachi and the Mishima Zaibatsu took him away. Bryan began despising them both as a result.

One day, Bryan heard news of the King of Iron Fist Tournament 4, and decided to enter. With this death being impending Bryan's body flowed with energy making him stronger than before. He develops an uncontrollable rage that manifests itself into his physical appearance.


Tekken 4 - Bryan Fury ending - HQ

Ending Description: Bryan wakes up to Dr. B informing him that Yoshimitsu had saved him. Yoshimitsu stands at the foot of the chamber and nods. Dr. B then goes on to say they both need his cooperation. He offers to mechanize him (which will expand his lifespan) but in return, he wants to keep his original body once Bryan is reborn into a new body. He then tranquilizes him.

Tekken 5


Tekken 5 Bryan Interludes

Tekken 5 Manual:
Bryan Fury, a replicate created by Dr. Abel, entrusted himself to Dr. Bosconovitch to receive technological upgrades. Bosconovitch installed a perpetual power generator in the cyborg. Instead of thanking him, Bryan killed several people at the facility. Then he decided to enter the fifth King of Iron Fist Tournament, thinking it as the perfect test for his newly installed generator.

Official Version:
In order to receive technological upgrades to his cybernetic body, Bryan entrusted himself to Doctor Bosconovitch and drifted into a deep sleep.

Upon regaining consciousness, Bryan realized that his body remained unchanged. Dr. Bosconovitch explained that Bryan's body contained many complex mechanisms that would require more time to be fully understood, but he was able to install a perpetual power generator as an emergency measure.

"Perpetual power generator?... Incredible." Bryan exulted.

Bryan shoved Dr. Bosconovitch out of the way as he headed for the door. Several members of the Manji Clan tried to stop him, but they got sent sprawling to the ground as Bryan left the secret base behind him.

As Yoshimitsu lands, Bryan walks to his fallen opponent. And as he aims his pistol with a final smirk, the screen goes black and a final shot can be heard.

After getting his hands on a perpetual generator, Bryan Fury decided to join The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 for the purpose of testing its efficiency.

Tekken Revolution

Bryan appears in Tekken Revolution as a playable character.


Bryan is an unorthodox kickboxer who heavily relies on a ferocious punishment game. Bryan is capable of doing heavy amounts of damage with his counter hits and makes sure no move goes unpunished. He also has good pressuring capabilities, keeping opponents on tilt.

Bryan, however, is very unsafe, so risks must be taken in order to be rewarded with near 30% combos. He also lacks good range. In all, Bryan is a consistently strong character with a great toolset for instilling fear in the player's opponents.

Fighting style

Bryan fights using a style of Kickboxing. Kickboxing is a popular combat sport that saw fruition in Japan in the 1960s. Kickboxing's punching techniques are almost identical to that of regular boxing, with kicking techniques being the aspect of the sport that differentiates itself from the latter, being an important part of a practitioner's arsenal. Elbow and knee motions also have heritage in the martial art Muay Thai, also defined as kickboxing in it's broader term. Bryan's kickboxing is not strictly traditional, with him putting his own sadistic twist on certain moves, notably the Fisherman's Slam. Many moves are also derived from Karate techniques.
