Feng Wei (Chinese: 馮威 Féng Wēi; Japanese: フェン・ウェイ Fen Wei; It may be written with given name first as Wei Feng) is a fictional Chinese character from the Tekken franchise of fighting games. He was introduced in Tekken 5 as one of the three new characters (the other two being Asuka Kazama and Raven) and has returned for all subsequent games.
A ruthless and merciless martial artist. Feng has a lust for power and fighting, which can be seen as both a strength and weakness, as while he was skilled enough to be the best in his class, his greatest flaw is that his addiction and impulsive urge to start fighting eventually got the better of him, causing him to murder his master after he scolded him for fighting outside the dojo. He seeks to become the strongest fighter in the world, and is not afraid to show his full power against any opponent that gets in his way, and has destroyed many dojos and hurt many innocents in his wake to obtain what he desires. He also seems to loathe weak people, as he says to Asuka, "the weak don't deserve to live", when responding to why he attacked her father.
Despite this, Feng does have a vague sense of honor, as he accepts defeat, when Wang defeats him in the Arcade Story Mode. Rather than recovering and trying to kill him as he did to his master, Feng bowed down before him as a sign of respect, and acceptance of the fact that he was defeated by him. Although Feng is prone to malicious acts, he is not strictly diabolical (unlike Kazuya or Bryan, for example), as he simply wishes to be the strongest; those who do not stand directly between him and his goal are usually of no concern to him, and he has no desire for world domination.
As a boy, Feng Wei was raised as a disciple by a Kempo master who was so skilled that he was known as Shinken (神拳, literally God Fist). At 20 years of age, Feng was the best student his school had ever seen. When his master scolded him for fighting outside the dojo, Feng killed him. Now Feng seeks the secrets of the God Fist scrolls stolen by the Mishima family, and enters the fifth King of Iron Fist Tournament to do so.
Asuka Kazama and Lei Wulong have connections with this ruthless, merciless Kempo fighter. Feng severely beat Asuka's father and destroyed his dojo in his search for the scrolls, while Lei is trying to capture Feng for his similar actions in China.
Ending Description: Feng manages to retrieve the God Fist scroll in the fifth King of Iron Fist Tournament and, after reading and studying the vague scroll, he is seen practicing his new powers, and manages to destroy an entire mountain with a single strike.
Feng Wei was successful in retrieving the treasured "God Fist" scroll from the Mishima Zaibatsu during the fifth King of Iron Fist Tournament. The scroll merely stated, "Destroyer of all styles, the one true ultimate style, it transcends the power of The Dragon God, which exceeds all human ability.".
Dumbfounded, Feng receives information about the sixth King of Iron Fist Tournament, and, seeking more information, he once again looks towards Japan.
Ending Description: Feng Wei is standing on top of an active volcano when a large, flaming boulder is fired from the volcano towards him. After seeing it, Feng focuses and simply punches it, cooling the rock and scattering molten rock all around him. Feng puts his hands together, nods and opens his eyes.
Prologue Text: Feng Wei had always abided by what was written on the God Fist scroll: "Defeat all other masters and conquer their styles; the perfect warrior transcends all to become the Dragon God." Having fought masters of many different styles, Feng returned to his childhood training ground to continue his intense training regime. Then, one day, an unexpected visitor appeared before Feng: a mysterious man who exuded strength. When the man made it clear that his desire was to fight, Feng had no reason to refuse.
He accepted his opponent's challenge in silence, and prepared to battle.
Ending Description: After Feng's victory, Law flips back up and challenges him again. Even though Law manages to deliver a powerful strike to the abdomen, Feng delivers an even more powerful blow that knocks Law out cold.
In Marshall's ending however, Law's friend Paul shows up after Law is beaten. Feng doesn't back down and challenges them to a 2 vs 1 match. Paul manages to knock Feng down with a powerful Burning Fist. Not to accept defeat, Feng stands up with a powerful aura glowing around him, causing both Paul and Marshall to run away in fear, fully aware of how dangerous he is.
Feng returns in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 as a playable character. He retains his moveset from Tekken 6, with a few new moves added. His item move is a flying nimbus cloud (similar to the one in the Dragon Ball franchise) that allows him to fly when tagged out.
Ending Description: Feng is seen meditating in his dojo, with several bowls of sake balanced on his head, arm joints and knees. Asuka Kazama suddenly appears and challenges Feng to a battle in order to get her dojo's sign back. Feng, engrossed in his meditation, takes no notice of her, and Asuka attacks him in order to show him she's serious, only for him to dodge her attacks and counterattack effortlessly, sending Asuka flying into a nearby building. After she recovers, she smirks and stomps the ground lightly. This causes the bowls to shatter, soaking Feng and finally breaking his concentration. The scene cuts to Asuka heading home with her sign in hand, only to bump straight into Feng, and fall backward. A very much displeased Feng advances on the helpless Asuka, who screams in fear as the cutscene fades out.
Feng appears in Tekken Revolution as a playable character.

Feng Wei fights using God Fist Style Chinese Martial Arts, a highly devastating and aggressive style that is equally athletic as it is powerful. The style emphasizes on palm-striking techniques, versatile kicks and erratic whirling strikes. Though fictional, the style is primarily based on the Cantonese martial art Hung Gar.

- Feng Wei's name written in Chinese as (馮威/冯威 Féng Wēi), where in (馮/冯 Féng) is the surname, and (威 Wēi) is his given name. He is currently the only Chinese character (with a Chinese name) in the Tekken series who does not have a double given name.
- Feng Wei wears iron rings around his wrists. This is most likely to add weight to his arms to increase resistance as well as providing defense against opponents. These are mainly used in Hung Gar and Yau Kung Mun styles of martial arts. They have also appeared in various popular cultures such as Jackie Chan's film Drunken Master and Stephen Chow's Kung Fu Hustle.
- In Kung Fu Hustle, they are used by a practitioner of Hung Gar and in the Avatar: The Last Airbender cartoon series, the Earthbender style is based off of Hung Gar.
- Feng's style of meditation in his Tekken Tag Tournament 2 ending is a direct reference to the Chinese martial arts film Drunken Master, in which the character Wong Fei-hung (played by Jackie Chan) is forced to do a similar technique in his training.
- Due to his appearance and fighting style, Feng's design may be based on Retsu Kaioh from the manga/anime series, Grappler Baki.
- Feng is similar, and has been compared to, Gato (from SNK Playmore's Fatal Fury series and King of Fighters series), who also fights with Chinese Martial Arts.
- Additionally, Gato's design is also based on Retsu Kaioh from Grappler Baki.
- Feng Wei also bares similarities to Hokuto no Ken′s Raoh; both prodigies of Chinese Kenpo and yet ambitious to the point of murdering their own master, seeking greater strength.
- Feng Wei can be customized to resemble Guan Yu (關 羽/关 羽 Guān Yǔ) from the Three Kingdoms period during Imperial China and the Romance of the Three Kingdoms novel by Luo Guanzhong.
- The fact that Feng attacked Asuka's father's dojo could be a subtle reference to Bruce Lee's famous film Fist of Fury, except in reverse: the Chinese martial artist is the villain and the Japanese are the victims in this case.
- Feng Wei can be customized to resemble Lu Bu (who is also from the Three Kingdoms period during Imperial China and the Romance of the Three Kingdoms novel), Sun Wukong (known as the monkey king in Chinese mythology and AKA Son Gokuu in Japanese on'yomi), Kilik from Namco's Soulcalibur series, and Vega from the Street Fighter series.
- In the case of Lu Bu, Feng Wei even has a technique in his moveset named after him, but only in the English versions as the same move is named differently in Japanese.
- In Ghost Battle, there is a Feng/Leo ghost of professional Japanese player Yuu. This is likely because Yuu uses Feng and was the 2nd place finalist in the Tekken 6 Global Championship Final.
- In Asuka's ending, Lili pronounced Feng Wei's family name correctly (it's pronounced as "Fuh-ng").
- In Tekken: Blood Vengeance, Feng's dossier is briefly seen (incorrectly identified as Nina Williams) when Anna Williams opens a file containing dossiers of various persons of interest.
