Jin Kazama (風間 仁 Kazama Jin?) is one of the main characters of the Tekken series. He is featured on the packaging for the console version of almost every sequel following his introduction in Tekken 3. He has been the main protagonist for the majority of the following entries ever since his debut in Tekken 3, and has been trying to end the Mishima Bloodline to save the world from their evil. The exception to this was when he took on an anti-villain role in Tekken 6 (with Lars Alexandersson taking his role as the protagonist), and also when he took on the role of a supporting character in Tekken 7 (where Heihachi Mishima and Kazuya Mishima became the main characters of the game). Jin is the son of Kazuya Mishima and Jun Kazama, the grandson of Heihachi Mishima and Kazumi Mishima, the adoptive nephew of Lee Chaolan, the half-nephew of Lars Alexandersson, a relative to Asuka Kazama, and the great-grandson of Jinpachi Mishima.


Jin Kazama is the son of Jun Kazama and Kazuya Mishima. Jun's intimate relationship with Kazuya grew and she became pregnant with Jin. The devil, that fled Kazuya when he was thrown into a volcano by his father, attempted to enter Jin while he was still in his mother's womb, but Jun managed to fight it off. Afterwards, Jun moved to a remote location in the mountains on her home island of Yakushima, where she raised Jin and trained him in the Kazama family's self-defense fighting style.

Several years later, Jun sensed the approaching of a great evil and decided that it was about time she told Jin about his origins. She also told him that if anything were to happen to her, he should look for his grandfather, Heihachi Mishima. Jun's premonitions proved to be true, as she was attacked by Ogre four days later on Jin's 15th birthday. Hours after the chaos, Jin, who fell unconscious, then awoke amongst the rubble with a devil brand on his arm. He began searching for his mother, with no success, and, enraged, Jin swore revenge. He was then taken in by Heihachi, who began to train him in Mishima-style Karate.


Jin's actions and surroundings fit the mold of a quintessential "tragic hero". As with many tragic heroes, all of the major traumatic events that occur within the hero's life are beyond his control.

First and foremost, there's the fact that his father and grandfather are two of the most evil and ruthless individuals who've ever lived on the face of the earth. Secondly, his mother was cruelly and abruptly taken from him while he was still a teenager. Thirdly, he was betrayed by his grandfather, whom he trusted deeply. Fourthly, he finds he has inherited an evil Devil that he cannot control or get rid of and embodies all of the evil in the Mishimas he has been fighting against. Fifthly, the return of his great-grandfather, Jinpachi Mishima, has caused him to begin losing his internal struggle with the Devil within. Sixthly, the appearance of Azazel prompts him to corrupt the Mishima Zaibatsu further just for the chance to face the beast and sacrifice himself to destroy it. Each of these occurs to a helpless and unassuming Jin, who is simply doing what he can to set things right at every turn (although his choices in Tekken 6 are pointed out by other characters to be too great a cost, and evil in nature).

It is known that Jin used to be "sweet and nice" (as described by Ling Xiaoyu and mentioned by other characters), before all of the above-mentioned events happened. However after everything he went through, he seemed to have lost much of his human compassion.

Jin's personality ranges from stoic and calm to rude and arrogant at times, and his words and actions hint at a bitterness within him. Although he is portrayed as a monster in his devil form, in general, he is never portrayed as evil (unlike Kazuya and Heihachi), and everything that he does, he believes he does for a good reason.

He also has one personality trait in common with many Japanese action heroes: once Jin's mind is focused in any particular direction, it is immensely difficult to get him to change or even notice the events and people around him. People close to him, including Hwoarang, and Xiaoyu, are always going to extremes to gain Jin's attention, and yet, he maintains an indifferent demeanor towards them.

Jin's disinterest in close relations perhaps results from the Devil Gene. As a result of his family's bloodline curse, Jin thinks that the people he loves will likely suffer if he ever completely succumbs to the Devil Gene or becomes one with it like his father. In short, during Tekken 4, Jin planned to destroy his father, and grandfather, and then himself, dying without children to put an end to the Mishima curse once and for all. However, Jin could not go through with it after defeating his two predecessors, so it's unknown if he has given up on this plan completely since he saw the image of his mother, Jun.

In the events of Tekken 6, Jin uses his new position as the CEO of the Mishima Zaibatsu to throw the world into chaos in hopes of a cure, although his intentions are benevolent since he seeks to use this to awaken and then destroy a much greater threat, Azazel. Believing that defeating this monster could help get rid of his curse, Jin has been the cause of countless deaths and wars throughout the world, and gained lots of enemies through the course of his actions. This seems to show that, no matter how painful it is for him, Jin is willing to go out of his moral comfort zone, if it means saving the world. Despite his indifference and arrogance, Jin's belief that he is motivated by altruism makes him very different from his father and grandfather, and shows that he may still be a good man at heart.

In Street Fighter X Tekken, Jin is depicted as being rebellious and hostile towards most people. He prefers to be alone and does not want others to interfere in his fights, as shown in most dialogues and quotes. For instance, he keeps telling Xiaoyu to stop following him. In their ending, however, Jin seems to care about Xiaoyu, as he gets affected by the Pandora and tells her to stay away, not wanting to hurt her. 

In Namco X Capcom, Jin is still in touch with a fellow cursed martial artist, Ryu, from Street Fighter, who also seeks to remove the Satsui no Hado within him.

Unlike Street Fighter X Tekken, Jin doesn't seem to be so arrogant and rude in Project X Zone and its sequel. He seems more calm and kindhearted, avoiding killing Heihachi when he had several opportunities to do so. Jin is shown to be fairly helpful to other characters when he joins them to fight off monsters and demons. He also aids Ryu and Akira from Virtua Fighter to fight off Seth, who targets both him and Ryu in order to use his BLECE machine. However, towards the fight against the main antagonist and final boss, Meden Traore, his wife, Due Flabellum, and the Belanos Brothers, Jin is shown to be a serious and very determined person. Jin also assists other characters, including his grandfather Heihachi, his friend Xiaoyu, and especially both protagonists Kogoro Tenzai and Mii Kouryuji, to put an end to their misery. This was carried oout whilst having an uneasy alliance with his father, Kazuya, to save the world with the other Namco Bandai, Capcom, Sega, and Nintendo heroes from Ouma's plot. However, Jin also retains a small portion of usual coldheartedness, particularly toward certain characters who were impressed by the Devil Gene (eg. Valkyrie and Ingrid). Jin warns others about his father, Kazuya, and is wary towards martial artists from other games during his encounter with Ryo Hazuki, Axel Stone, and Segata Sanshiro.


Jin Kazama is of Japanese ethnicity. He has black hair that spikes at the back of his head, similar to that of his father, Kazuya Mishima. He also sports fringes like his mother, Jun Kazama. Jin is also notably muscular with low body fat percentage, evidence of the many years of hard training. His resemblance to his father is so strong, that in early screen showings of Tekken 3 where his character was still unnamed, many fans speculated that he was a young version of Kazuya Mishima, specifically when he was in his early teen years. While Jin inherited his father's body structure, his face strongly resembles his mother's. One of Jin's most prominent aspects is the black tattoo-like mark on his left shoulder, a mark that the Devil Gene branded onto him.


Main article: Jin Kazama/Outfits

Jin has worn a great deal of outfits during the course of the Tekken series. Most of his outfits feature a flame motif, and, with the exception of a single outfit in Tekken 6, gloves or gauntlets. In Tekken 6, Jin discards his gloves from Tekken 5 that contain the Kazama family crest in lieu of ones that model his former Mishima style ones. This could be a subtle hint at his personality change. [3] Jin sports his CEO outfit in Tekken 6 gameplay, with it being his default 2P outfit. He also has another outfit shown in the Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion opening, which is a black leather jacket, with white and red rider gloves, grey pants, and black shoes; he also wears a matching black sunglasses which were shown in a scene in the Scenario Campaign mode, and in Hwoarang's ending in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, in which he wears his CEO outfit during their motorcycle race.

In the Tekken: Blood Vengeance movie, he is primarily seen in two outfits. The first outfit is a black long sleeve loose button shirt with an extended collar, black pants, and black shoes; during his fight with both his father, and grandfather, he dons his red and black detachable gauntlets as seen in Tekken 6. The second outfit is a summer version of his school uniform in Tekken 3, which is shown in the photo frame between him and Shin Kamiya inside of his apartment.

In Tekken 7, Jin sports a new zippered hoodie costume made of leather, with matching pants. He retains his trademark red gauntlets, which have now been extended to full-on armor, covering the entire length of his arms. He also wears a red belt and red boots.



Tekken 3

Version 1: Jin is Kazuya Mishima and Jun Kazama's son. He received intense training under his grandfather Heihachi Mishima - all in an effort to avenge the loss of his mother by fighting and defeating Ogre. This Tournament is his chance to test his strength and face his destiny.[4]

Version 2: At the age of fifteen, Jin discovered that he was Kazuya Mishima's son, and also that his mother, Jun Kazama, had died (the actual truth was that she had gone missing). Jin, after having survived the attack of Ogre, went and found Heihachi Mishima, and trained himself under the supervision of Heihachi every day with the intention of defeating Ogre, who supposedly killed his mother. Heihachi was not only his grandfather, but also proved to be a reliable teacher.

Four years later, having mastered the Kazama and Mishima fighting styles, Jin began his path as a martial artist.

During the game, Jin fought and defeated numerous opponents in the tournament. He also fought against his rival, Hwoarang, although it ended in a draw. Despite this, Jin continued on through the tournament and finally arrived at the temple where Ogre was located. Just as he approached the entrance to the temple, Heihachi appeared and forced him to fight in order to lure out Ogre, but kept this from Jin. Instead, he told Jin that he wanted to test his abilities and determine whether or not he was strong enough to fight Ogre, but Heihachi had ulterior motives.

Eventually, Jin defeated his grandfather, and Ogre then appeared before him. Angered by the sight of his mother's "killer", Jin engaged Ogre in a fight, fueled by rage. During the fight, Ogre absorbed Heihachi's power, allowing him to become True Ogre. The fight continued.

Tekken 3 Jin Ending

Tekken 3 Jin Ending

Ending Description, "Dirty Blood": Jin defeated True Ogre and had avenged his mother at last. Suddenly due to the extreme battle, True Ogre violently exploded. Mere seconds after his victory, Jin is attacked by Heihachi's Tekken Force soldiers; he received multiple gunshot wounds. Slowly succumbing to death, Heihachi shot Jin in the head with a handgun, therefore killing his own grandson. However, when Heihachi turned his back and walked away, he saw the bodies of his soldiers before him and turned around to see Jin morphed into his devil form, Devil Jin. Jin then slammed Heihachi through a wall of the temple and violently hurled Heihachi down into the ground. Finally, Jin spread his wings and flew off. Heihachi, weakly, sat up and watched as his grandson, Devil Jin, disappeared into the night.

Tekken 4


Brisbane, Australia; a city crowded with buildings, new and old. Nestled amongst the towering buildings of this city was a small dojo. A young man trained there quietly, his face covered by the hood of his jacket. The young man was Jin Kazama.

Day after day, Jin trained in the traditional art of karate. Ever since Heihachi's betrayal, Jin loathed everything about himself; his Mishima bloodline, his fighting style, the Devil Gene in his blood, everything. He gave up the Mishima-Ryu fighting style, thanks to the dojo master's training, and mastered traditional karate.

Jin's thoughts burned with the desire to destroy the evil Mishima bloodline, the bloodline of his grandfather, Heihachi Mishima, and his father, Kazuya.

One day, Jin heard rumors that The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4 was announced.

A once in a lifetime opportunity to exterminate the Mishima clan... without hesitation, Jin hardened his resolve to enter the tournament.

After fighting many opponents in the tournament, including Hwoarang near the end where they promised to fight in the next tournament, Jin finally had a match with Kazuya, his father. On his way to fight Kazuya, Jin encountered the Tekken Force soldiers. Jin managed to take down a number of them but was outnumbered and eventually defeated. He was then taken prisoner by the soldiers.

Tekken 4 - Jin Kazama ending - HQ

Tekken 4 - Jin Kazama ending - HQ

Heihachi's Tekken Force soldiers held Jin captive at Hon-Maru. After Kazuya had been led to Hon-Maru by Heihachi, Kazuya manages to knock Heihachi out of the door with a telekinetic force due to being possessed by Devil. When Devil attempts to get the other half of the Devil Gene within Jin, Jin gains tattoos on both his chest and arms, but to Devil's dismay, Jin also inherited the Kazama blood, which restrained the assimilation. Kazuya manages to regain control of himself and he merges Devil and himself into one personality. Kazuya tries to wake his son. When Jin wakes up, he manages to break the chains and begins to suffer from his Devil Gene which engulfed him in a purple haze. Jin angrily expressed his wish for his father to be dead. Jin fought Kazuya and defeated him, only to be confronted by Heihachi, whom Jin also dispatched; but when the time came to fulfil his dream of killing the Mishima bloodline, he faltered after seeing a hallucination of his mother, Jun Kazama. As a result, Jin dropped his grandfather and said, "Thank my mother, Jun Kazama," before flying off into the night. At the end of the scene, a single white feather is shown falling along with several black feathers, implying that the white feather belongs to Angel, which signifies Jin's good side.

Tekken 5

Tekken 5 Jin Interludes

Tekken 5 Jin Interludes

After the gruelling battle between Jin, Kazuya, and Heihachi at Hon-Maru, Jin took flight, leaving the island behind. However, he was overwhelmed by an evil presence and lost consciousness. Jin awoke to an unknown voice and saw a mountainy forest, which appeared to have been ravaged by a giant tornado.

However, Jin had no doubt that he was responsible for the destruction. Upon returning to Yakushima, Jin was plagued by recurring nightmares. Jin could feel the influence of the Devil Gene growing stronger.

"If this keeps eating away at me, I don't know how long I can hold on".

With nothing else left, Jin went out to end his bloodline.

Tekken 5 Jin ending

Tekken 5 Jin ending

Jin, once again, fought his rival Hwoarang, but the devil gene began to take over Jin again. During this time, Hwoarang took the opportunity to strike, and defeated Jin. The Devil Gene awakened in Jin, and he took out Hwoarang afterwards.

Back in his human form, Jin met and battled his great-grandfather, Jinpachi Mishima and in the end, defeated him. Jinpachi exploded into nothing but dust, as Jin looked up to the sky. In the end, Jin walks into the Mishima Zaibatsu throne room , having claimed the Zaibatsu.

Tekken 6

Jin freed the cursed Jinpachi Mishima and took over the Mishima Zaibatsu. He utilized his elite military unit, the Tekken Force, to carry out covert missions in order to engulf the world in chaos. Once he had rendered most countries' military power useless, he took over space colonies, oil fields, and other energy-producing resources. He declared the Mishima Zaibatsu's independence and waged war against the rest of the world in order to vanquish an even greater evil capable of destroying the world.

The Mishima Zaibatsu swept across the globe, taking over nation after nation, but as the war continued, new opposing forces slowly began to show their presence. Jin learned that Kazuya was controlling the first and most powerful opposition, the G Corporation. When the G Corporation placed a price on his head, Jin announced The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6, as if he had been waiting for the G Corporation to make its move.

As well, as G Gorporation, Jin's other rival at this time comes from within his own company. A faction of Tekken Force, led by Lars Alexandersson, rebels against Jin's tyranny and forms the rebel army, Yggdrasil, funded by Lee Chaolan.

However, in the Scenario Campaign mode, it is revealed that the war and tournament were set into play to fill the world with enough negative energy to make the physical form of the evil entity known as Azazel, because Jin and Kazuya are known as the "Two Evil Stars".

Scenario Campaign Ending

Having been "defeated" by Lars Alexandersson, Jin explained to him why he started the war, and revealed that he has a half-controlled Devil Gene, which gives him no choice but to start a war with Kazuya. Jin wanted to lure Azazel out and kill it to save the world from the Mishima bloodline treachery, and the only thing that could destroy Azazel is a person who has a devil's power. Lars tells Jin that he has already taken Azazel out, just as Azazel in golden form appears before them. Jin then utilized his Devil's power and sacrifices himself to kill the gold Azazel for good, to free himself from the evil inside him and save the world. After Jin defeats Azazel, Raven finds Jin's body lying in the desert. He still bears the Devil tattoo on his arm, showing that Azazel's demise has not freed him from the Devil Gene.

Game Ending

Tekken 6 Jin Kazama (Ending Movie 1 & 2)

Tekken 6 Jin Kazama (Ending Movie 1 & 2)

Jin successfully defeats Azazel and Kazuya, and once out of the temple, is welcomed by one of the Tekken Force helicopters with his bodyguard Nina Williams aboard, but suddenly, she is thrown from the aircraft, at the hands of Heihachi, who had been commanding the helicopter the entire time. Heihachi leaps out of his helicopter to commence a battle with Jin, telling him that he will return the Zaibatsu back to him. Jin, being victorious, escapes the collapsing temple on another one of his Tekken Force helicopters and heads back to HQ.

Tekken 7

Jin is one of the four characters added in an update after the full arcade release on March 31, 2015. Prior to becoming playable in the timed release, he was originally a non-playable sub-boss, replacing Heihachi under some conditions. However, in Fated Retribution and console ports, Jin is no longer a sub-boss.

Story Mode

The leader of the Mishima Zaibatsu and the man who declared war on the world. Fighting the Devil inside him which gets stronger every day, he yearns to be rid of it once and for all. When his battle is over at last, will he find hope, or despair?

Jin's sudden disappearance has left the Mishima Zaibatsu in a state of chaos, allowing his grandfather Heihachi to reclaim the company in his absence.

After his supposed sacrifice on defeating Azazel put him into a comatose state, his body is taken under the UN custody. While unconscious, Jin's Devil Gene goes awry again and destroys the UN's chopper. Waking up in a weakened state, Jin walks aimlessly through the desert beneath the sandstorms of the Middle East. When Arabian soldiers find him, he unconsciously unleashes a devil beam into the sky, which sends the soldiers flying. Jin soon arrives in a market while clutching his right arm, not knowing what he is doing there. He is about to be captured by the Arabian soldiers who continuously pursue him, only to be rescued by Lars before he collapses. Lars quickly carries Jin into his vehicle and drives away from their pursuers.

Jin is later transported to a medical facility owned by Violet Systems to recover from his comatose state. However, Nina Williams, who is forced to work for Heihachi, infiltrates the facility to recover Jin and take him back to the Mishima Zaibatsu. But the plan is foiled by Lee Chaolan, who flies Jin to safety while he remotely destroys the facility.

Awakening from his coma after Heihachi's true death, Jin is sent out by Lars to find and kill Kazuya. He complies, as he is now the only one who can stop his father due to the Devil's blood that runs through his veins, preparing to destroy Kazuya and end the cursed Mishima bloodline once and for all.

Other Appearances

Tekken: The Motion Picture

Jin made a cameo appearance as a child in Tekken: The Motion Picture. Asking his mother, Jun Kazama, if she can finish reading "the story from yesterday", Jun answers, "Alright" and they soon walk home.

Tekken Tag Tournament

Jin returns from Tekken 3 as a playable character in Tekken Tag Tournament. He retains his move-set, but if Heihachi is selected as his partner, he will have access to a new Omen stance. Although Tekken Tag Tournament is non-canonical, it is still looked at as a refined version of Tekken 3.  In this title, Jin has access to new moves and variants of his Mishima style moves like Corpse Thrust, Parting Wave, Knee Kick and Demon Steel Pedal.

Ending Description: Set at the Jin-A stage, Jin picks up the unconscious body of his father and arch-enemy, Kazuya. Jin is about to finish him with a single punch, only to have paused and dropped Kazuya's body back on the ground. He is then seen with his hands shaking as he falls down to his knees. This restraint is possibly due to "Kazama blood" influence or his mother's spirit taking control of him.

Street Fighter X Tekken

Jin appears as a playable character in the crossover game, Street Fighter X Tekken. His official tag partner is Ling Xiaoyu. Jin is referred to as "Pitch Black Wings" in his character description. This game is not canonical to the Tekken series.

In his prologue, Jin hears the word of the Pandora crashing into the Antarctic and hears of its dark presence affecting people negatively across the globe. Sensing a power that may retain the Devil Gene, he decides to find the box. Xiaoyu tries to reason Jin from going, as it may be too dangerous; Jin, however, is determined to go. Xiaoyu then decides to accompany him and protect him in case something bad happens. Determined, he sets out in order to better understand his Devil powers.

For the Street Fighter characters in the arcade mode, Jin and Xiaoyu (who have succumbed to the influence of Pandora) appear as sub-boss rivals (before fighting Ogre).

In Arcade Mode, Chun-Li and Cammy are set as Jin and Xiaoyu's rivals. Chun-Li threatens to arrest Jin, but he seems uninterested and tells her he doesn't care about the warrants, and arresting him won't be easy. Xiaoyu however, gets angry because she thinks they were trying to seduce Jin. He then challenges them to a fight to continue to search for the box.

Ending Description: After defeating Akuma, Jin and Xiaoyu finally reach the Pandora. Jin walks on ahead, with Xiaoyu watching him. When he gets closer to the box, he gets thrown into pain from the box's influence. Xiaoyu runs to help Jin, but he tells her to stay back. Pandora opens and seals its effect away from Jin. Afterwards, he falls unconscious. After a while, he opens his eyes and sees Xiaoyu looking at him in a worrying way. He wakes up on Xiaoyu's lap. He gets up and sees that his devil tattoo is still on his arm. He tells Xiaoyu that he won't give up and he will find a way to get rid of this curse.

His Swap Costume is modeled after Crimson Viper, a character from Street Fighter IV. The download blurb states that after defeating her, Jin took interest in Viper's gadget-laden suit and requisitioned one for himself.

Tekken: Blood Vengeance

Jin appears in the Tekken: Blood Vengeance movie as one of the main characters. He's still the CEO of the Mishima Zaibatsu. Like G Corporation, the Zaibatsu's rival company led by Kazuya Mishima, Jin is seeking out Shin Kamiya and his involvement with the Mutare Experiment (the M-Cell). He sends Nina Williams, his bodyguard, to Russia, to activate an android named Alisa Bosconovitch and use her as a spy to gather information about Shin, who's now a student at an international school in Kyoto, Japan.

Later, Ling Xiaoyu and Alisa are able to find Shin at Kyoto Castle, where he reveals that the cause of his immortality is because of the Mutare Experiment. Jin then arrives at the castle, where he reunites with Shin, whom he was good friends with back at the Mishima Polytechnical School. After a brief conversation with his old friend, Kazuya arrives. Then, a surprisingly alive Heihachi Mishima, who survived an explosion by G-Corporation's Jacks sent to kill him and Kazuya, reveals himself and tells everyone that the experiments were engineered by him. After Shin confronts Heihachi, Jin then realizes that Shin was the sole survivor of the Mutare Experiment.

Shin then uses the cell's power to try and kill Heihachi, but Heihachi attempts to kill Shin by putting him in a deadly shoulder lock, spilling most of the teenager's blood and the M-Cell's power. Xiaoyu, Alisa, and a furious Jin demand Heihachi to stop, but Heihachi heartlessly kills Shin, ridding him of the Mutare Experiment's power. After Shin dies in the arms of Xiaoyu and Alisa, Jin, angered at the process of his friend dying, decides to battle Heihachi, and his father, Kazuya, and end the Mishima Bloodline once and for all. Xiaoyu attempts to stop the fighting, but it's no use. Jin, Kazuya, and Heihachi engage in an epic three-way brawl, all the way down to the bottom of Kyoto Castle. After Heihachi defeats Kazuya, Jin defeats and seemingly kills his grandfather by punching him through a brick wall and sending him falling to his apparent death, avenging Shin.

Afterwards, Kazuya regains conscious and confronts Jin. He then transforms into his devil form and physically strikes Jin (possibly with telekinesis), sending him through the wall and taking the battle outside. Jin attempts to defeat him without the usage of his Devil powers, but Jin was no match for his demonic father, and Devil Kazuya cruelly urges him to transform into Devil Jin. Alisa then attempts to defeat Devil Kazuya instead, but is shut down by Jin. Annoyed that Jin has been using a "doll" to do his work, Devil Kazuya crushes Alisa in half with one single stomp, throwing Xiaoyu into despair. Afterwards, Jin finally transforms into Devil Jin, in order to put an end to the Mishima Bloodline, though his form is completely unstable and out of control; Devil Kazuya then easily defeats his son. However, as he believes he's victorious, Jin finally takes control of his new form, surprising Devil Kazuya and revealing that he never needed the M-Cell. His Devil powers now utilized, Jin successfully defeats his father, sending him plummeting into a nearby waterfall and declaring that the Devil's power is now his.

Afterwards, Jin finds Xiaoyu weeping uncontrollably next to Alisa's destroyed body. After the two friends have a brief conversation about their friendship, Heihachi is revealed to still be alive. Underneath the ruins of the castle, he destroys the coffin harboring the spirits of the Mokujin, which was the material that the castle was made of. This causes Heihachi to then transform into a giant monster, in order for him to annihilate his grandson. Though the Mokujin tries to stop him, he ignores them and attempts to use their power to kill Jin. However, Alisa reactivates herself, and sacrifices herself to strike Heihachi's weak point; because of this, Jin finally defeats his grandfather and sends the monster tumbling to the ground. Heihachi's fate, along with Kazuya's, is unknown.

With the battle finally over, Jin puts Alisa back online, much to Xiaoyu's joy. He then tells Xiaoyu that in time, she will come to defeat him and he'll be waiting. Jin then flies back to the Mishima Zaibatsu.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2

Jin is a playable character in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. He has his move-set from Tekken 6 with some slight modifications. His Lingering Soul Omen has been removed and replaced with something similar, his Zenshin stance. Essentially, Zenshin is a variation of his Mental Alertness (2) stance, but instead, Jin remains in a stationary position. Intuitively, this would mean that Jin cannot cancel into a dash but is able to cancel into a crouch dash from this stance. However, quite a few of his moves transition into his Zenshin stance by holding forward, allowing a sort of shortcut to his Mental Alertness (2) moves. This increases the fluidity and speed of his moves and allows for quite a variable mix-up. Also, Jin has an item called "evil eyes" which causes his eyes to glow red-orange; his item move associated with this item allows his Shun Ren Dan to become a flurry of rapid punches. It only works when the opponent's health is low enough for Shun Ren Dan to K.O. the opponent.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Jin's Arcade Ending

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Jin's Arcade Ending

Ending Description: After defeating Unknown, Jin catches her in his arms. As Jin watches her, she transforms back into her human form, Jun. Jin, in shock in seeing his lost mother, watches her with love. Strangely, Jun disappears, leaving Jin alone in the darkness of Fallen Garden. He remains on the ground, having thoughts of his beloved mother and in sadness and rage, he transforms into Devil Jin and flies away. Jin's ending continues from Devil Jin's ending.

Tekken: the dark history of mishima

Jin Kazama appears as a main character in the novel written by Takashi Yano. The central plot revolves around him. Set between Tekken 6 and Tekken 7.

Tekken Card Tournament

Jin appears as a playable character in Tekken Card Tournament. His cards focus on an all-around albeit slightly weak assortment. However, some cards allow him to "mutate" into Devil Jin, buffing his effects tremendously. He has average draw, strength, and abilities, making him pretty well rounded, but most of his cards are either limited, or unique, and he has a small card collection. He also has some card abilities from Heihachi, and Kazuya, which further make him a tough opponent to bring down.

When he mutates to Devil Jin, he stays in that form until the card activation causes another mutation. He has cards that can help make mutation easier to do, but these usually have drawbacks on them in order to prevent rapid mutation on a whim. He can also heal himself, but only if he strikes the opponent. He requires skill to use, so beginners aren't recommended to use him until after a bit of training.

Android - Jin (Reveal Trailer)

Android - Jin (Reveal Trailer)

Jin was announced to be added to this game in an upcoming update. His trailer was released in December 8, 2017.

Later on, Jin appears as an unlockable character released in Tekken Mobile's Christmas update (Version 0.7) that comes with redesigns of all stages to bring out their Christmas spirit, new customization for characters, and the King of Iron Fist Tournament himself.

The King of Fighters: All Star

Jin is featured alongside Armor King II, Heihachi, Kazuya, Paul and Xiaoyu as Tekken's guest characters for SNK's mobile game as a playable character in either his primary outfit in Tekken 6 or his main outfit in Tekken 7.


In Tekken 3 and Tekken Tag Tournament, Jin was a Mishima style fighter, like Heihachi, retaining all the iconic moves from the Mishima Style Karate like the Flash Punch Combo, Dragon Uppercut, Twin Pistons, Wind God Fist and Rising Sun. However in detail Jin was an amalgamation between Kazuya and Jun Kazama's movesets, retaining many of Jun's moves like the Double Lift Kick, Three Ring Circus and Spinning High Kick, while having improved moves of Kazuya, like Laser Cannon (improved version of Demon God Fist) and new improved Mishima style moves of his own like Shoot the works, 893P Knee Kick Demon Steel Pedal, Corpse Thrust, as well the then-new Electric Wind Godfist . Jin's gameplay differed from Kazuya's, as while he shared much of the moveset he was focused both on offense and punishment with good punisher moves and pressure tools, like Devil Jin, making him a deadly force if used correctly. This gameplay style (updated) is used now by Devil Jin.

Jin's new gameplay, changed in T4, while changing the fighting style, is comparable to the Mishima's, being able to perform a crouch dash like them. Jin doesn't have their powerful single moves, so he'll have to use different tools. What lacks in sheer damage, he makes up in a better poking game, evasive maneuvers, sneaky stance transitions, and an outstanding counter ability. His pokes are quick and hard to read, and none are very punishable on block, so he can apply constant pressure on the opponent. Also, his Mental Alertness stance gives him a good evasive option; when timed in the right way, this stance can evade most moves and give Jin the opportunity to punish the opponent.

Jin has a unique parry that allows him to "circumnavigate" some game mechanics. It is very useful, but hard to apply. Jin's parry works by literally pushing the opponent, thus giving them a recovery where they can't block (based on how slow the move recovers) and allowing Jin to counter-attack them after parrying while they're still recovering from the move, acting as if he isn't parrying at all. This is the only way to punish properly some moves that normally are safe on block or only slightly punishable. Jin can also parry an entire combo string, but he must perform the command for every hit before he can punish the final attack.

His rage art has him stun the opponent with a high crushing punch which later flurries his opponent with several jabs ultimately knocking the opponent with a devastating straight thrust to the opponent's face. In Tekken (Mobile), this move was used within his 3-Star and 4-Star appearances and in his guest character appearances in The King of Fighters: All Star, his execution of his several jabs from his Rage Art has been slightly reduced and his devastating straight thrust is now embedded with a powerful red lightning.

In Tekken Tag Tournament and Tekken Tag Tournament 2, if paired with a Mishima (including his demonic self) Jin can enter an Omen stance, which allows him to use some Mishima style moves until performing an attack or being hit, such as the Stonehead, the Dragon Uppercut, the Wind God Fist, the Electric Wind Godfist and so forth. When the Electric Wind Godfist is performed, Jin will remain in Omen stance, thus is possible to perform it in succession. When in Omen, Jin's stance is identical to Heihachi's.


Jin has presumably one of the slowest rage arts. Nevertheless, it's recommended to use his rage drive which can catch opponents who do not block, resulting in them losing half-life. It's also very easy to perform in combos for experienced players, which can increase damage greatly.

Jin has low damage potential in Tekken 7. He will need to utilize huge combos in order to deal lots of damage, thus requiring support from certain environments.

Fighting Style

In Tekken 3 and Tekken Tag Tournament, Jin fought using Mishima Style Fighting Karate, learned from his grandfather, Heihachi, and Kazama Style Traditional Martial Arts learned from his mother, Jun. Jin later discarded this fighting style in favor of traditional Karate, mostly derived from Kyokushin.  However, in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, with the power of Omen, he can use some of Heihachi's Mishima Style Fighting Karate moves.

Character Relationships

Jun Kazama

Jin's beloved mother, whom he shared a strong bond with; Jun was the person who mattered to him the most and loved her, as she was affectionate to Jin. When Jin was fifteen, Jun sensed Ogre's presence, and told Jin that if something happens to her, he must go find his grandfather, Heihachi Mishima. When Ogre later attacked her, Jin tried to defend her despite her cries for him to run away, but was ultimately knocked unconscious. After Jin awoke, Jun was nowhere to be found, leading Jin to presume that she was dead. Following her mother's wishes, the enraged Jin contacted his grandfather and begged him to train him to avenge his mother.

Later, in Tekken 4, a vision of her prevented Jin from killing his grandfather Heihachi and his father Kazuya, reminding Jin of her teachings.

One of the rare times Jin is seen smiling is in his win pose with Jun in the non-canon TTT2, expressing happiness in reuniting with his mother.

Kazuya Mishima

His father. It is unknown what Jin thought of Kazuya before the events of Tekken 4  but his father was often searching for Jin in order to forcefully extract Jin's portion of the Devil Gene.

In Tekken 7, Kazuya seems to have lost interest in his Devil Gene (mainly due to him being focused on more important matters), but Jin still wants to kill his father as seen in the after-credits scene.

They are also uneasy partners in the non-canon Project X Zone 2.

Heihachi Mishima

His grandfather. Heihachi took him in and raised him during the events leading up to Tekken 3 after his mother Jun had disappeared. Jin was trained by Heihachi in the Mishima style Karate to prepare him to fight Ogre, eventually in 3 years mastering the Mishima style and implementing it with what he learnt from his mother. Jin trusted Heihachi with his life, and looked up to him as a father figure, but after Heihachi betrayed him after he had defeated Ogre, Jin started to despise Heihachi and his family lineage, causing Jin to abandon his fighting style and reject his Mishima heritage.

In Tekken 4, a vision of her mother, Jun, made Jin decide not to kill his grandfather, sparing his life after having defeated both him and Kazuya.

Ling Xiaoyu

Jin knew Xiaoyu from before the third tournament when they both lived and trained under his grandfather Heihachi, and became close friends with her during his time in Mishima Polytechnical School. At the time, before Heihachi's betrayal, Jin was more kind and gentle, growing a soft spot for her. After the events of Tekken 3, Jin disappeared without saying a word and Xiaoyu tried to search for him but was unable to find him. Xiaoyu never stopped missing him and in all of her appearances, she tries to help him and his family. Before Tekken 4, Jin did send an anonymous message to Xiaoyu warning her of Heihachi's true nature, showing that he does care and is concerned for her, although Jin stays away because he believes that he will cause harm and suffering to those close to him, maybe even to prevent Heihachi from using her to get to Jin.

The two have been shown to work well together as fighting partners and are promoted as such in both Street Fighter X Tekken and Project X Zone. She is also the only character Jin is hinted to ever been close to besides his mother.


  • Kazumi Mishima - His deceased grandmother and original source of his Devil Gene. It is unknown, however, whether he knows of her or not.
  • Jinpachi Mishima - His deceased great-grandfather. The two met in Tekken 5, and Jin defeated him to free him from the spirit possessing him and to take control of the Mishima Zaibatsu.
  • Lee Chaolan - Jin's adoptive uncle, who protected him during his coma in Tekken 7.
  • Lars Alexandersson - His half-uncle and former subordinate. In Tekken 6, Lars leads a rebellion against Jin after his war against the entire world. Lars later rescues and protects Jin in hopes that his powers can be used to stop the war in Tekken 7.
  • Devil Jin - The malicious physiological transformation Jin undergoes that manifests itself as a result of the Devil Gene.
  • Asuka Kazama - His relative.
  • Hwoarang - Jin's rival, whom he shows varying degrees of respect to. The two often compete, and Hwoarang's main goal is to defeat Jin, which he finally achieved in the fifth tournament, but was later defeated by Jin's devil form. The two are also shown racing in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 in Hwoarang's ending. Hwoarang is also Jin's opponent in Tekken 7 while fighting him in his devil form.
  • Nina Williams - His hired right-hand, bodyguard, confidante, and personal assassin. She might have been aware of Jin's true intentions for the world and she took her duties and the mission deathly seriously. Was sent by Heihachi to capture him, but failed in Tekken 7.
  • Eddy Gordo - His lead soldier in charge of the Tekken Force. Along with Nina Williams, Jin hired Eddy in the wake of his rise to the head of the Zaibatsu, vowing to help save the life of Eddy and Christie's master in exchange for Eddy's expertise. They, however, failed to save Eddy and Christie's master, as the Zaibatsu's tech was also far from capable of curing his disease.
  • Miguel Caballero Rojo - Miguel holds great contempt for Jin as he indirectly caused the death of Miguel's Sister in an air-raid before Tekken 6. Miguel encounters Jin during the events of Tekken 7, and manages to defeat him. However, he spares his life after noticing Jin's lifeless matter, wishing to exact his revenge once Jin's life is filled with hope.
  • Christie Monteiro - Christie knows Jin had Eddy lead the Tekken Force to save her grandfather; both he and Eddy eventually failed to save her grandfather's life. Christie and Jin also have a starring role together in the non-canonical live-action Tekken film.
  • Legendary Capoeira Master - Eddy entrusted Jin to look over him, but the Zaibatsu's tech ultimately proved to be incapable of curing the Master's disease.
  • Alisa Bosconovitch - Alisa was created to protect Jin. Jin is able to control Alisa's actions through voice control (such as shutting her off). With the help of Lee, Alisa was able to be freed from his control in Tekken 7, but Jin was still later protected by her during his coma.
  • Azazel - Awakened him through world domination, both in order to apprehend and destroy it thus saving the future from its carnage and in an attempt to rid the world of the Devil Gene. Jin used his Devil powers to defeat Azazel but failed to destroy the Devil Gene since he still had the mark on his arm in the after credits. The threat of Azazel, however, was entirely destroyed.
  • Ancient Ogre - Jin swore revenge on Ogre for 'killing' his mother, an oath he followed through on with extreme prejudice.
  • Kuma II - His grandfather's pet, whom he banished into the Hokkaidō wilderness.
  • Zafina - She warned Jin of Azazel's awakening, although he was already aware of this.
  • Raven - He monitors and later retrieves Jin at the conclusion of the Scenario Campaign.
  • Anna Williams - Because she worked for Kazuya, whilst Nina worked for Jin, Anna is his enemy.
  • Bruce Irvin - Kazuya ordered Bruce to arrest Jin in Tekken 6, making him his enemy.
  • NANCY-MI847J - Jin ordered Mishima Industries to create NANCY.
  • Mr. Kazama - His relative.
  • King II - Acquaintance and ally in Namco X Capcom. They ally together, along with several other characters, to stop the oncoming threat. Jin is aided by King in defeating his father's devil form (non-canon).



  • Jin's name originates from common Japanese names.
    • Jin () is of Japanese origin, meaning "benevolence". The kanji for Jin can also be read as Hitoshi (ひとし), which is a common Japanese male given name.
    • Kazama (風間) is comprised of Wind (風 kaze) and Interval (間 ma) and collectively the meaning is "while the wind is blowing". Kazama is also a common Japanese surname.
    • Being Kazuya's son, technically Jin would be named "Jin Mishima". However, because he was solely raised by his mother, Jun, and because of his conflicting hatred for his Mishima blood, he kept his mother's surname instead. [5]
  • During Jin's creation, the staff really emphasized that they wanted a "misfortunate character" for the future, which was what happened to Jin in Tekken 6. [6]
  • Before the release of Tekken 3, Jin was designed to be a character with "determination". At release, he became more of a character with a rather "dark side". [7]
  • During his time at Mishima Polytechnical School, Jin was registered in mechanical engineering. [8]
  • Jin uses the art of Kyokushin style of karate since Tekken 4; he can be seen practicing Yantsu and Pinan Sono Yon Kata in Tekken 4.
  • Jin's motion actor is Ryu Narushima (成嶋 竜 Narushima Ryū?) after having adopted traditional karate as his fighting style. [9]
  • Isshin Chiba is Jin's voice actor in all of his appearances, even in the Japanese dub of the 2010 film.
  • In Tekken 6, if Jin customizes with "Devil Face" and press the following buttons: up + LP + RP, during gameplay, he will fire Devil Jin's "Hellfire Blast" beam upwards.
  • During the events of Tekken 3, he has a schoolboy uniform; this, with his age of nineteen years old should make him a senior at Mishima Polytechnical School (while Ling Xiaoyu, at sixteen, should be a junior).
  • Jin is said to have travelled to Brisbane, Australia to learn karate. [10] At the time of Tekken's creation, Cameron Quinn – a well-known instructor of Kyokushin Karate, Mas Oyama's interpreter, and the author of The Budo Karate of Mas Oyama – was teaching students such as Garry O'Neill and Walter Schnaubelt at his well-known Kyokushin dojo in the city of Brisbane.
  • In Tekken: Blood Vengeance, Jin's English voice actor, Patrick Seitz (credited as Darren Daniels), is also the voice actor of Bob since Tekken 6. Ironically, Jin's stance in his Tekken 5 CG is somewhat similar to that of Bob's Tekken 6 CG.
  • In Tekken 6, Jin is the only playable boss character. Even though NANCY is also playable, it is not playable in the PSP version and can only be played in Scenario Campaign.
  • It is commonly established that Asuka is Jin's cousin, especially in Tekken 6/Bloodline Rebellion and Street Fighter X Tekken, however, according to Katsuhiro Harada, it is not that simple. [11] Harada tries to state that Jin and Asuka, as well as Jun, are part of the same clan.
  • Jin's hood can be knocked off when wearing a hooded outfit in Tekken 4, Tekken 5, and Tekken 7.​​​​​​​
  • The flame on Jin's pants has been 4 different colors. Red (TK3, TTT, TK5: DR, TK6, TTT2), Teal (TTT), White (TK4, TK5), and Blue (Tekken: The Motion Picture), with the color of his gauntlets matching the flame in each of his appearances.
  • In contrast to Kazuya Mishima who uses "kisama" as his second-person pronoun to anyone (save for Jinpachi), Jin's choice for the second person pronoun differs depending on who he is talking to. He uses either "kisama" or "omae" to Kazuya, but uses "kimi" to Xiaoyu.

Tekken 3:

  • Not only is he a new character, but he effectively replaces his parents Kazuya Mishima and Jun Kazama in this game, possessing elements of both of their fighting styles.
  • His Tekken Force bosses are Paul Phoenix, Nina Williams, and Hwoarang.
  • His advertising slogan was "Lightning of Fate" (運命の稲妻 Unmei no Inazuma?).
  • In Heihachi's ending and his ending, as well as his CGI in both Tekken 3 and Tekken Tag Tournament, he has a white drawstring at the center of his black trousers; in his in-game appearance, however, the white drawstring is not seen.
  • In the opening, Jin is seen in his casual clothes, as he sits inside of a car watching Hwoarang, who is waiting at his motorcycle. At the end of the opening, Jin was seen in his primary outfit, being marked by the Devil on his left arm.
  • Jin, along with Xiaoyu, has two secret win animations.
    • His third win animation has him perform a right punch and a Dragon Uppercut, followed by him raising his left fist.
    • His fourth win animation is Devil's/Angel's win animation in Tekken 2. He folds his arms, looks away from the screen, and grunts, saying "Hmph!".
  • Jin has an unlockable third outfit. After playing as him 50 times, the player can select Jin's school uniform by pressing either the triangle or the start button.
  • In the rare "Tekken 3 Symphony Orchestra" calendar by Namco, Jin is seen in a black formal suit, wielding a conductor's baton.
  • In the EMBU opening sequence, Jin can be seen wearing all three of his outfits at different points in the sequence.
  • He appears in Hwoarang's ending, clinging his injured right arm while being pursued by the Tekken Forces. After Hwoarang saves him from the Tekken Forces, Jin escapes the warehouse by jumping through the window, while demonstrating his Devil powers.
  • He also appears in Heihachi's ending in his primary outfit. In an unconscious state, Jin starts to go through his Devil transformation before being thrown out of the helicopter by his grandfather.

Tekken Tag Tournament:

  • Jin has special "game over" animations with Hwoarang, Kazuya, Heihachi, and Xiaoyu.
  • Heihachi Mishima is his sub-boss by default.
  • Kazuya Mishima is his sub-boss if unlocked.

Tekken 4:

  • His sub-boss is Kazuya.
  • He is a final boss to Hwoarang and Kazuya.
  • He and Kazuya are the only ones to fight in Hon-Maru in Story Mode.
  • Because he was in Australia for two years, it is possible that he mastered the English language. However, he and Lei Wulong are the only two characters who speak with a broken English accent, as shown in Hwoarang's ending.
  • Jin appears in both the first and second part of the EMBU opening, performing his traditional karate moves in his primary outfit.
  • He appears in Hwoarang's ending in his 2P outfit; in both Kazuya's and Heihachi's ending, however, he is seen in his primary outfit, but without the top of his gi.
  • So far, this is the only Tekken game where Jin has to be unlocked.

Tekken 5:

  • He is a sub-boss to Ling Xiaoyu and Hwoarang.
  • He and Mokujin are the only characters who do not appear in the opening intro, but in Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection console opening, he briefly appears after waking up in a ravaged forest due to his Devil Gene going berserk after Jinpachi's release at Hon-Maru.
  • He and Julia Chang are the only recurring characters who keep their 2P outfit from Tekken 4 but not their 1P outfit.
  • He appears in Asuka's ending in his devil form clothes, but maintains wearing his spiral-patterned gauntlets from his primary outfit after being healed by her "touch".

Tekken 6:

  • His opponents in story mode are Lars Alexandersson, Azazel, Kazuya Mishima and Heihachi Mishima.
  • He has an alternate costume that is similar to Street Fighter villain M. Bison's default costume.
  • Jin can be customized to look like M. Bison from the Street Fighter series, Light Yagami/Kira from the Death Note series, Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist, and Vergil from Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening.
    • He also can be customized to resemble his old Tekken 5 and Dark Resurrection 2P outfit.
  • His Emperor's Armor customization set resembles Lars's default outfit, considering that both are related to Tekken Force in some way.
  • In the Tekken 6 console opening, the button shirt and pants from his CEO outfit are all black instead of gray and dark purple from his in-game appearance and his Tekken 5 ending. He also wears this during both Miguel Caballero Rojo's ending and Ling Xiaoyu's dream from her ending.
  • During Scenario Campaign mode, before he drives his motorcycle with his bodyguard Nina, going back to the Zaibatsu, he is seen without his trenchcoat, and the color of his button shirt is white instead of gray.
    • In the fifth trailer of Street Fighter X Tekken, he also wears this outfit while fighting against M. Bison, but without the black lightning designs.
  • When the player chooses to play as Baek Doo San in his boss stage, Jin recognizes him for founding the resistance, and Baek wants to stop Jin from his madness; however, when the player chooses to play as Jin in Baek's boss stage, it has a different outcome, where Baek was impressed to see Jin come to fight the resistance by himself. Jin thanked him for his compliments, before taking him down in one fell swoop, much to Baek's fury.
    • Interestingly, when Jin fights his rival Hwoarang at his boss stage, Jin recognizes Hwoarang as the resistance leader who asks him where his Master Baek is. Jin arrogantly smirks at his rival saying. "I wonder." making Hwoarang get mad for his arrogance.
  • He is the second boss in the Mishima Zaibatsu, Central Tower and being the final boss in Scenario Campaign mode at Azazel's Temple, Central Corridor.
  • Jin is the final boss of the Scenario Campaign and the penultimate boss of Arcade mode for all characters and Arena mode for most characters. As the final boss of Scenario Campaign, he has additional abilities, such as the ability to fire lasers like his devil form, while as the sub-boss of Arcade and Arena mode, he always starts the round in Rage mode.
  • His fate in this game and how he defeats Azazel is similar to Kyo's and Iori's defeat of Orochi in The King of Fighters '97.

Street Fighter X Tekken:

  • Jin, Xiaoyu, M. Bison, and Juri are featured in one of the game's trailers.
  • Jin is voiced in English by Brad Swaile for this game, as his Tekken: Blood Vengeance voice actor, Patrick Seitz, currently voices both Bob and Hugo in the game.
  • He is one of four Tekken characters to have projectiles in this game; the others being Steve, Raven, and Alisa.
  • His Cross Art is similar to his Rage Art in Tekken 7 as in it, he stuns his opponent by knocking them to his/her face with a high straight punch and unleashes several punches similar to the Median Line Destruction to his opponent and knocking his opponent with a devastating straight thrust.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2:

  • He has a special win pose with Kazuya, Hwoarang, Nina, Jun, Devil Jin, Asuka, Zafina, Lars, Xiaoyu, and Miguel.
    • He also has special tag throws with some of the characters mentioned above.
  • His special win pose with Jun is one of the rare cases in the entire series where (non-Devil) Jin can be seen smiling.
  • In the Wii U version of the game, he gains a special outfit based on Link from Nintendo's Legend of Zelda series.
  • In his ending, the devil tattoo on his left arm is mistakenly missing when he held Unknown who reverts back to his mother, Jun, before disappearing.

Tekken Revolution:

  • In the E3 2013 debut trailer for Tekken Revolution, Jin is quoted as saying "Power is everything, overwhelming and absolute." (力だけを求めいていた、圧倒的な力を。Chikara dake wo motometeita, attō-teki na chikara wo.) and "Power is everything." (そう…力こそ全てだ sō... chikara koso subete da.). These lines were taken from the Scenario Campaign prologue in Tekken 6.
  • Jin was added to the roster along with Ling Xiaoyu in an update on July 2, 2013, as part of the 1,000,000 download event.
  • Jin's extra costumes include his emperor armor from Tekken 6, as well as a casual suit.

Project X Zone:

  • Jin's team partner is Xiaoyu.
  • His caption is "I see, I decide my own destiny!"(そうだ、俺の行く道は、俺が決める! sō da, ore no yukumichi wa, ore ga kimeru!).
  • His voice sample 1 is "I am Jin Kazama, head of the Mishima Zaibatsu, I have a duty." (風間仁、三島財閥の頭首だ、やるべきがある。 Kazama Jin, Mishima Zaibatsu no Tōshu da, yarubeki ga aru.)
  • His voice sample 2 is "We have considerably assembled quite a lot of allies in this world." ( 随分と集まったな、この世界に、物好きな連中だ zuibun to atsumatta na, kono sekai ni, monozuki na renchū da.)
  • His voice sample 3 is "If a single family's battle will rip the world apart, so be it..."(世界の境界線が乱れ、戦いは家族する、それもいいだろう sekai no kyōkaisen ga midare, tatakai wa kazoku suru, sore mo ii darō...).
  • When he and Xiaoyu fight Batsu Ichimonji in his stage, he asks him about his school uniform. Batsu impulsively replies that he was just like from the moral's school committee which he refers to him as his classmate Kyosuke Kagami which is also from the moral's committee.
    • Interestingly, both Jin and Kyosuke are voiced by the same seiyū, Isshin Chiba, in which Batsu recognizes the similarities between their voices.
  • When he and Xiaoyu fight Alisa in her stage, she does not recognize him as her master, as she was reprogrammed by someone else. However, after she gets reprogrammed back, she instantly recognizes Jin. He then asks her to join the team and help them out.
  • To one of Xiaoyu's win quotes, where she mentions the word "excellent", Jin tells her not to use this word, and Heihachi says that it brings back bad memories. This is a reference to Lee Chaolan's famous catchphrase within the Tekken universe.
  • When Jin interacts other characters in the game, he is shown to have his eyes closed while speaking to them, even with his grandfather Heihachi during the fight; however, when fighting a boss, with Xiaoyu, or other fighters like Akira or Batsu, he has his eyes open.

Project X Zone 2

  • Jin's team partner is his father Kazuya Mishima as his previous team partner Xiaoyu is currently being teamed up with Chun-Li from Street Fighter.
  • When Jin, Kazuya, Heihachi, and Xiaoyu meet Unknown, Jin's genes start to react, but he doesn't understand why.
    • When he learns that Unknown is his mother, he defeats her and makes sure she never returns, unlike in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, where he held Unknown before she reverted back to her human self, Jun.

Tekken 7:

  • His rage art is taken from his Tekken Tag Tournament 2 item move. He also performed this move on Heihachi in Tekken: Blood Vengeance, during his fight with him and Kazuya.
  • Jin is one of the characters that can have something knocked off them, the other's being Craig Marduk's hood, Shaheen's headcover, and Katarina's glasses.
  • Even though he is not playable in the Story Mode of the game, he actually does have a character episode, where he appears in his devil form. He briefly appears in Hwoarang's character ending when Devil Jin reverted back into Jin in a purple haze.
  • In one of his win animations, which he maintains from Tekken 6, Jin is shown in a close-up, performing Mental Alertness, as he says "I'll get you..." This sentence originally comes from his previous Tekken 5 win animation, in which he says the same words but with a different animation.
  • In Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, Jin regains his CEO outfit from Tekken 6 and Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion, as part of his customization; however, by default, his button shirt is now white instead of grey, and his pants are grey instead of purplish-black and his belt is dark brown, and his overall appearance is based on both Hwoarang and his devil form's ending in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. This outfit is used again in Tekken (Mobile), serving as his 4-Star appearance.
  • His red lightning Hit Effect can be made blue, like it previously was in Tekken 3.
  • In Ultimate Tekken Bowl, Jin's hood is not knocked off if the roll is overcharged, in contrast to actual battles where his hood can be knocked off by his opponent.
    • The color of his bowling ball is red with his devil tattoo imprinted on it.
  • Like all male characters with black hair in this game, Jin can be customized to resemble Ryu from the Street Fighter series. Jin specifically can also be customized to resemble Ryu's second alternate outfit (Battle Outfit 1) and his "School Uniform" outfit from Street Fighter V.
  • In Story mode, Jin is depicted wearing his devil form's new main outfit while recovering from his coma but in a few cutscenes where Lars shows him to both Lee and Alisa at Violet Systems and while being attacked by Nina and the Tekken Force, he is briefly seen without the top of his outfit.
    • In both Hwoarang's and his devil form's endings, he also wears this outfit.
  • He appears in Miguel's ending being beaten up by Miguel himself who later spares him from his finishing blow.

Tekken (Mobile)

  • Jin's featured act is "Jin-gle Bells", which is a play on words of the song Jingle Bells. Jin is also a boss in this act, where the player fights him in every mode. Once he is defeated and the act is cleared, he will gain 1 to 4-Star fragments each, whereas other fragments will need to be obtained in the live events, in order to unlock him as a playable character.
  • Once Jin becomes playable, another boss featured event called "Jinfinity War" will be available, which is a play on words of the Marvel film, The Avengers: Infinity War. This act was also used for the live events to gain more of the token to get the boxes in order to get his 1 to 4-Star fragments.


  • In the French Otome game, Is it Love? series, the character Jarod Harding from Blue Swan is a parody version of Jin who practices Karate in Los Angeles despite his occupation being an emergency intern and surgeon at the Blue Swan Hospital. His appearance also references Jin's live-action appearance in the flop Tekken (2010 film) being portrayed by his Japanese-American actor Jon Foo.
  • Additionally, the character Zac Hudson from Fallen Road shares some of Jin's traits for being rude and arrogant to the player due to his occupation as a magnetizer. He can also transform into his true demon form named Zachielorius which is similar to Jin's devil form but his horn and wings appear similar to Devil Kazuya's and the tattoo is orange. This form was seen in Chapter 11 as Zac finally introduced himself to the player as Zachielorius.
  • Jin features in his devil form in the Pachi-Clot 4 video, in which Xiaoyu attempts to bring him back, and Claudio seeks to subdue his devil side.
