Kazama Crest

Kazama Crest

The Kazama Clan (風間一族 Kazama Ichizoku?) is one of the most important families in the Tekken series. The family has been known for being blessed with spiritual powers going beyond the line of ordinary people.


The series revolves mainly around this family and the Mishimas. Possibly the most recognizable member of the clan is Jin Kazama, who is one of the most well-known characters of the series, as well as a recurring protagonist and the only character to be both a Mishima and a Kazama.

Unlike the Mishima family, the Kazamas don't carry the devil gene except for Jin, whose father is a Mishima. Although, one notable trait of the Kazama clan is that they have some ability to purify or restrain the devil gene. This can be seen in Kazuya's Tekken 4 ending as he tries to absorb the devil out of Jin or in Asuka's Tekken 5 ending where she dispels Jin's devil form simply by touching him.

  • Kazama consists of the kanji for "wind" (風 kaze) and "interval" (間 ma) and collectively, they mean "while the wind blows." Kazama is in fact a real Japanese surname that is currently in use.
  • It is speculated that Tekken 7 newcomer Claudio could be connected or linked to the Kazama Clan, due to having a similar power on nullifying the Devil Gene.
