Tekken 7 Orbital Laser.png

Mishima Zaibatsu's orbital laser satellite is a weapon of mass destruction created by Doctor Abel. It is initially depicted as a two-panelled satellite, and later as a five-panelled satellite, sitting in orbit above the Earth. It is capable of shooting a red laser down to the surface with expert precision, causing a devastating amount of destruction. The Zaibatsu most likely gained control of the satellite when Dr. Abel joined the company in Tekken 4.

The laser satellite is first seen in Tekken 2, in Jack-2's ending. It appears again in Gun Jack's ending in Tekken 3, where it is revealed to be made and used by Doctor Abel.

In Tekken 7, Heihachi Mishima orders the satellite to fire at G Corporation HQ, which destroys the whole building. However, Kazuya Mishima survives due to his demonic nature, as does Akuma

The satellite is later destroyed by Kazuya's Devil Blaster, and causes disaster when it falls to Earth. It is mistakenly reported by the press as the Mishima Zaibatsu losing control of their own satellite, causing public opinion to turn against the Mishima Zaibatsu.

Trivia

  • It is likely that Jin Kazama did not know of the satellite's existence, otherwise it would have been used during his tenure as CEO of the Mishima Zaibatsu in Tekken 6 to cause destruction and chaos.
  • The satellite has only been used by the Mishima Zaibatsu when Heihachi is in charge, suggesting that knowledge of its existence even within the Zaibatsu may be somewhat secret. The satellite in Tekken 7 was initiated after Heihachi's hand print was scanned, suggesting only he (and Doctor Abel) may have had access to the weapon.
  • In Tekken Pachislot 4, reference is made likely to this satellite falling to earth after Kazuya destroyed it.
  • As Doctor Abel works in Mishima Industries, it is likely that this wing of the Mishima Zaibatsu was responsible for its creation and maintenance.
