Devil Kazumi (デビル一美 Debiru Kazumi?) is a character in the Tekken series of 3D fighting games. She is the alter ego of Kazumi Mishima after being consumed by the effects of the Devil Gene and a boss in Tekken 7.
Her overall design is similar to that of a white ghost and kitsune. She has red eyes, long white hair with hime cut bangs, off-white skin and she has red tattoos on her forehead, neck, wrists, legs, and feet. She also has neon blue bracelets on each side of her wrists with a matching ripped bead necklace on her neck and wears a neon blue and white spiked gem barefooted sandals as the gem is attached on her knee, wrists and ankles. However, when her Rage was activated, the color of the gems glow in bright red. The interior of her dress is red.
She wears a long white Japanese kimono dress which is tattered at the edge of her long sleeves and at the hem of her dress. She also has a white obi on her kimono dress which is tied in red ribbons to her waist and has a gray butterfly shaped design at the back of her white obi. She has red horns similar to Eliza's and her devil wings are similar to Devil Jin's but with a "flaming" appearance akin to the phoenix wings.
Devil Kazumi makes her first and only appearance in the Story Mode in Tekken 7 as Kazumi Mishima reveals to her husband about the reason why she marries him because of her family, the Hachijo Clan wants to kill him and it was her destiny. Kazumi assumes in her devil form to kill her husband. After a long and grueling fight, Kazumi attempted to kill Heihachi with a Devil's Beam but missed, prompting her to punch him in the face. But Heihachi retaliated by hitting her groin with a powerful uppercut, seemingly killing her while she reverted back to her human form. After Heihachi checked upon her body and turned to leave, Kazumi transformed into her devil form again to attack him from behind but he grabbed her neck. Desperate, Kazumi warned her husband about the chain of hatred he would set off if she dies and begged him to release her because of their love for one another. Despite her pleas, Heihachi noticed it was a trap, and stated to her that she was no longer the Kazumi that he knew as he immediately snapped her neck, killing her. As Kazumi lay dead on the floor, Heihachi sheds a single tear over the loss of his wife.
In gameplay, Devil Kazumi seems to be able to summon a white tiger, which rolls over the opponent or even stands up and claws the back of the opponent. She also shares the devil gene's signature devil beam but unlike Devil Jin and Devil Kazuya, her beam activates in an instant. She can not only float forward with a bend of a knee but backwards as well, in a manner akin to Alpha-152 from the Dead or Alive series. She also retains her human form's fighting style and moves.
Her fighting style is Hachijo-Style Karate mixes with Mishima style Fighting Karate but with demonic abilities of her own.
|I'll grind your bones to dust! (奴だけに死てくれる！ yatsu dake ni shitekureru!)||Such a good kitty. (いい子ね iiko ne)|
|Are you sure you're ready? (覚悟よろしいですか? Kakugo yoroshii desu ka?)|
Note: the literal translation of the intro quote is - A sunset death, just for you.
- Kazumi Mishima - Her human form.
- Devil Kazumi is the second supernatural female final boss in the series, the first being Unknown in Tekken Tag Tournament and its sequel (although, in Tekken 2, if the player plays as Devil, Angel is the final boss).
- She is however the first female to become a final boss in a canonical Tekken game.
- She is also the first final boss to be long deceased by the time of the game current events.
- Interestingly enough, Devil Kazumi's wings resemble those of Night Terror from the Soul Calibur series and a phoenix.
- Devil Kazumi's pet tiger seems to be able to change between her devil and human form. In her devil form, it is a white tiger while in her human form, it is a normal one.
- During the second round after defeating her human form, Devil Kazumi's fighting stance resembles Devil Jin's fighting stance when facing his/her opponent as the final boss of the game.
- Devil Kazumi can also speak when she summons her pet white tiger as part of her moves during a combo as well as executing her demonic abilities. The other one being her human form.
- Unlike her human form, which executes her Rage Art with two grunts, Devil Kazumi will say "Die!" when she executes her Rage Art.
- Devil Kazumi has a CG art replacing her human form's CG art in her final stage intro as her pet tiger's eyes are glowing in blue. This CG art is revealed to be a special match against the player for the console version of the game.
- Devil Kazumi's reverberated voice is similar to the Abyssal Fleet Bosses in Kantai Collection.
- Like Azazel, the crystal on her body, when taking too much damage until triggering her Rage, will turn red.
