Tekken Wiki

Nina Williams (ニーナ・ウィリアムズ Nīna Wiriamuzu?) is a cold-blooded Irish assassin that made her first appearance in the original Tekken game and has appeared in every Tekken game since. Nina has a lethal fighting style, consisting of throws, grapples, and holds. She has an infamous rivalry with her younger sister, Anna Williams.   

During the end of Tekken 2, both Nina and Anna undergo Cryogenic Sleep. They are experimented upon for 15 years (this is the reason why they both remain physically young throughout the tournaments). While in cryogenic sleep ("cryosleep" for short), her ovum was taken without her consent and was used to create Steve Fox (who first appears in Tekken 4 and onwards).

Nina also starred in her own game, Death by Degrees, an action-adventure title released in 2005 for the PlayStation 2.


Nina and her younger sister are from a family of assassins hailing from the Republic of Ireland. Nina was trained in assassination arts by her father and in aikido by her mother. Anna was trained alongside Nina, and the two developed a deadly rivalry, often attempting to humiliate or kill one another.[11]

Nina was contracted to kill Heihachi Mishima at the time of the first King of Iron Fist Tournament.[4] She did not succeed in this task.

Two years later, Nina's father was on his deathbed. He pleaded for Nina and Anna to make amends before his death, but Nina found herself unable to comply with his wishes. She was soon contracted to kill the Mishima Zaibatsu's leader, Kazuya Mishima, at The King of Iron Fist Tournament 2. She entered the tournament not only to complete the job, but also with the intention of settling things with Anna.[2] Nina's grudge with Anna kept her from completing her hit on Kazuya, and both sisters were captured by Kazuya's forces and used as test subjects in Doctor Bosconovitch's cold sleep experiment.

Nina was in cryosleep for 15 years. When Ogre was awoken by actions of the Mishima Zaibatsu, its unleashed spirit stirred Nina from her sleep. Ogre assumed control of Nina's mind and commanded her to kill Jin Kazama, the son of Kazuya and grandson of Heihachi, her former targets. Nina entered the King of Iron Fist Tournament 3 to carry out the task.[3]

She was unsuccessful in killing Jin. Free of Ogre's control but afflicted with amnesia, Nina fell back into contract killing. She did not even remember Anna or their rivalry. One day, she accepted a contract from The Syndicate, a mafia organization. The target was Steve Fox, a world boxing champion.[12] Nina learned that her genetic material had been used to create Steve for as part of a Zaibatsu experiment program whilst she was still in cryosleep; however, she was unmoved, and intended to see the contract through regardless.[13] Nina entered The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4, only for Lei Wulong, an international police officer, to bust The Syndicate,[14] leaving her without an employer.

Nina placed her focus on discovering her forgotten past. She learned of Anna and, believing a meeting with her might help her regain her memories, arranged to see her. As soon as she saw Anna's face, Nina's memories returned, and they immediately entered into a shootout that went on for several days. When it ended in a stalemate, they agreed to settle things once and for all at The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. Nina defeated Anna at the tournament, both in a fight and in popularity rankings.[13]

Having finally defeated her sister, Nina found herself without an immediate goal - however, she was soon hired by Jin Kazama, the Mishima Zaibatsu's new leader, as a member of his special forces. Though the Mishima Zaibatsu were waging war seemingly without clear reason, Nina was not selective about her clients, and joined the Tekken Force in engaging in covert demolition operations across the globe.[15] Nina also acted as Jin's personal bodyguard,[16][17] and was aware of Jin's larger plan - to awaken an ancient demon called Azazel and destroy it. After Jin's clash with Azazel in the desert - in which Jin went missing - Nina appeared and briefly spoke with Lars Alexandersson, wondering whether Jin had really wanted the fight to end the way it did.[18]

Nina returned to the now-leaderless Mishima Zaibatsu. She and Tekken Force attempted to locate Jin Kazama, but were unsuccessful.[19] Heihachi Mishima stormed the Mishima Zaibatsu, intending to reclaim it in Jin'a absence. Nina initially sent Tekken Force out to try and thwart his advancement, and even confronted him herself, but yielded after she was defeated. Heihachi reassumed control and drew Nina into his plans..[20]

Nina traveled with Heihachi to the Duomo di Sirio in Italy to recruit the Sirius Marksmen's leader, Claudio Serafino. They were ambushed by Marksmen and fought back. Claudio emerged and refused to collaborate with the Mishima Zaibatsu. Nina spectated a fight between Heihachi and Claudio, which was won by Heihachi.[21] Claudio subsequently accompanied them back to the Mishima Zaibatsu headquarters, where he gave a lead as to Jin's possible location.

Jin was apprehended by Lars before the Tekken Force could get to him.[22] Heihachi dispatched Nina to the Violet Systems facility Jin was being kept in, where she encountered Lars, Alisa Bosconovitch, and Lee Chaolan. Alisa and Nina fought while Tekken Force made efforts to airlift the unconscious Jin by helicopter via his hospital bed. Lee hijacked the Tekken Force helicopter before Nina's team could succeed, and then detonated the facility once Lars and Alisa were out.[23] Nina survived the explosion, but decided to end her association with the Mishima Zaibatsu.

Once again a free agent, Nina returned to private assassination work. Her first job back in the field involved infiltrating a mafia wedding to get to her target. Nina stole the bride's dress to do so, and succeeded in taking all of her targets, including the groom, out in a firefight.[24]


Nina is cold, indifferent, and ruthlessly efficient in her work. She exhibits little care for or trust in others, and especially enjoys humiliating her younger sister Anna, with whom she has a long-term rivalry. Despite Anna sometimes extending an olive branch, Nina has shown no interest in setting aside their differences, preferring to beat, humiliate, or simply ignore Anna. An exception to this general attitude concerns Steve Fox, the child who was created for the Mishima Zaibatsu Supersoldier Program from Nina's genetic material whilst she was in cryosleep. Steve became one of Nina's targets whilst she was working for The Syndicate; though Nina took the contract with an understanding of she and Steve's relation, her Tekken 4 ending cutscene depicts her being hesitant to shoot him. She has since told Steve that she does not care for him, though her actions seem to betray a reluctance to harm him. Nina also seems to have respected her father, Richard Williams, from whom she learned the assassin's trade.

Nina appears to have few qualms about morality, which proves useful in her role as an assassin, and likely made her a good fit as Jin Kazama's bodyguard while he was waging war as head of the Mishima Zaibatsu.


Nina has blue eyes and blonde hair tied in a ponytail. She retains a youthful appearance due to being preserved in cryosleep for fifteen years.


Main article: Nina Williams/Outfits

Nina's signature color is purple and she has at least one purple outfit per game. Her trademark costume is a "catsuit," and she has worn many different variants of it, usually made of materials resembling spandex, PVC, or leather. In Tekken 7, however, her player 1 outfit is Anna's stolen wedding dress.



Manual, NTSC
A silent assassin. She learned assassination techniques from her father and of Aikido for self-protection from her mother, therefore, she has an outstanding fighting sense. She was sent to assassinate Heihachi Mishima, the sponsor of the tournament, but her real intentions are not clear.[4]

Manual, PAL
A trained assassin, Nina is fast and deadly. Rumors abound that it is not just the spirit of competition that brings her to the tournament; but who would take a contract out on Heihachi Mishima and why?[25]

Version 3
Because she has learned assassin techniques and the art of Koppou from her father, and Aikido and self-defense techniques from her mother, Nina has a superior sense of combat. She's been commissioned to assassinate the tournament's sponsor, Heihachi Mishima. However, truth be told, she's been having second thoughts about harming people.[26][citation needed]

Version 4
Nina acquired her unusual combination of skills from her parents. Her father, once an assassin for the IRA, left Ireland to escape his past. His marriage to a British Aikido champion created a bloodline that would spawn a child with incredible talent and a killer instinct. Nina was kidnapped by an underground force and drugged into believing that the Rave War sponsor must be assassinated. God help anyone who gets in her way.[citation needed]

While she and the Tekken Force are searching for Jin Kazama's whereabouts, Heihachi Mishima arrives at the Zaibatsu headquarters to confront them and retake the corporation for himself. Nina and the Tekken Force soldiers are no match for Heihachi, and after being defeated by him, she concedes and agrees to work for him. Thereafter, she directs the Tekken Force's activities and acts apparently as Heihachi's number two, standing behind him when he announces The King of Iron Fist Tournament 7. Although she questions Heihachi's motives, Nina goes with him as he travels to the Sirius Marksmen to get them on his side. She follows Heihachi's lead in dispatching several Marksmen of Sirius, before Heihachi fights and defeats the Marksmen's leader, Claudio Serafino.

Heihachi, Nina, and Claudio return to Tokyo, where they continue their search for Jin, with Claudio believing that the Zaibatsu desires his powers as an exorcist.

Tekken 8 - Nina Character Episode Ending

Character Episode Prologue
Nina Williams led the Tekken Force raid on the rebel army hideout to capture Jin Kazama, former head of the Mishima Zaibatsu.

The raid was cut short due to the tactics of Lee Chaolan, causing her to quit the Mishima Zaibatsu and return to her assassin-for-hire roots.

One day, she heard the announcement of a new The King of Iron Fist Tournament to select the new head of the Mishima Zaibatsu.

She stood on the sidelines at first, but a certain client asked her to join the tournament and handle all those who would side with G Corporation.

"The client is Lee Chaolan... That man has some nerve."

Ending Description
Lee Chaolan grabs a note from the wall that says "Tomorrow 1 p.m., Smith's Coffee, Urban Square". He meets Nina at Smith's Coffee at the designated time, where she is drinking coffee and waiting for him. When Nina sees Lee flying over, she kicks the chair opposite her forward so that he can sit. Lee then asks her her purpose for calling him to meet. Without answering, Nina beats him up, sending him flying into a lamp post. She then tells him that the meeting was revenge for blowing up the Yggdrasil headquarters she had infiltrated while she was still inside the building, and that he should consider them even now. Then, Nina leaves Lee behind, but not before tossing a grenade over to him, walking away as it explodes.

Summary of In-Game Events
Nina approaches Kazuya as he is sitting in his office just before the finals of his King of Iron Fist Tournament.

Nina later approaches Kazuya again after the events of the finals to report that all of the available G Corporation troops have been dispatched to Yakushima in order to slow down the rebel army and draw out Jin Kazama. After being instructed not to kill Jin, Nina relays that she has scouted a few of the fighters from the tournament to join the battle on the side of the G Corporation.

On the battlefield at Yakushima, a soldier reports to Nina that their newest suppression weapon is nearly ready. As the battle commences, the weapon becomes ready, and Nina deploys it into battle. She is met by Reina, who asks if she still wants to remain on the island and addresses her by name. She comments that Reina is "very well informed", and asks to know more about Reina as the two begin to fight. After being defeated, Nina fires two bullets at Reina, which she swipes away with a single strike. Nina appears to have figured out Reina's connection to the Mishima Clan, but before she can finish her statement about such, there is a large explosion not far from the two, denoting the arrival of Jack-8. Nina says that her job with G Corporation is finished, and that she is done on the island. Reina asks Nina to work for her, and Nina says she is "willing to negotiate", if it is after her vacation.

In the bad ending, Nina is shown on a luxury boat in Paris, France, watching the destruction caused by G Corporation.

Tekken Tag Tournament


Tekken Tag Tournament - Nina Ending

Nina appeared as a playable character in Tekken Tag Tournament. She retains her moveset from Tekken 3 along with a few additions. While the game is non-canonical, it is still looked at as a refined version of Tekken 3. In said game, the sisters continue their rivalry.

Ending Description
Anna and Nina appear to be having a disagreement. Nina puts her hand out as if to call a truce on their quarrel. Anna sighs and hesitates, then smiles and extends her hand. It turns out to be a ruse, as Nina pulls Anna into a standing armbar. Nina smirks cruelly as she holds her sister in the submission.

Tekken Tag Special Alliance Partners:

Death by Degrees

2005's Death by Degrees marked the first Tekken spin-off stand-alone game and casts Nina in a starring role for the first time. Originally, the game was supposed to simply be entitled Nina but was changed to Death by Degrees to reflect the multi-front combat system in the game.

In the game, Nina is assigned a mission that is a joint operation between the CIA and MI6. The team that she's with consists of two "sneakers" (John Doe and Edgar Grant) and one "sweeper" (Nina). They are supposed to infiltrate the Amphitrite, a Glafeera corporation cruise ship. Then, they are supposed to execute a video recon of a meeting held by high-ranking members of a certain organization. Nina is assigned to enter the fighting tournament that is being held onboard the ship, and then she is supposed to hide herself and await further orders. Upon mission completion, they are supposed to rendezvous and make their exit.

The game provided an alternate backstory for Nina and Anna with a flashback, suggesting that their father died when they were children protecting them. Richard Williams had struggled with some guards, and shouted for Nina to pick up a gun one of them had dropped. However, her hesitation and fear caused the guards to get the upper hand and shoot Richard. Anna is shown comforting Nina moments later, while Nina looks over the scene. Presumably, Nina and Anna's rivalry stems from this event.

This rivalry crosses over to the real-time events of the game, when Nina is sent to investigate a mysterious group. At an Island prison, she fails to interrogate her target when she is knocked out by Anna, who is working on behalf of the Mishima clan with the Tekken Force as bodyguards, as she owes Heihachi for her sister's operation. At the end of the game, Anna is the final boss Nina must face.

Tekken (2010 Film)

Nina appeared in the 2010 live-action Tekken movie, she is portrayed by Candice Hilebrand.

In the movie, she and her sister are assassins working for Kazuya. The three of them also sleep together. Kazuya sends both of them to kill Jin. Their attempt gets foiled as Christie shows up. Nina later fights Christie in the tournament. During the fight, Christie tells Nina about what happened last night but she tells her that she likes Jin and that he's cute too. Christie manages to escape the joint locks of Nina and manages to knock her out after a brutal fight and Christie tells her that she does not share.

Tekken: Blood Vengeance

Nina appeared into the 2011 CGI film, Tekken: Blood Vengeance. She's the first character to appear in the film, riding her motorcycle on a highway. Afterwards, she's ambushed by G Corporation employee and her younger sister, Anna Williams, who has set up a decoy for her. After a family reunion, Nina easily defeats Anna in a short battle, and quickly returns back to Jin after quickly escaping from soldiers from G Corporation (Anna's backup). Upon returning to the Mishima Zaibatsu, she shows Jin old files and newspaper articles of the Mutare Experiment (the M-Cell), which was performed on Jin's old school friend, Shin Kamiya. Upon learning about this, Jin then sends Nina to Russia where she would activate Alisa Bosconovitch, who she would then send to an international school in Kyoto, Japan to act as a spy to get info about Shin.

Nina, later on, appears halfway through the film, where she informs Jin that Alisa is ignoring their orders and doing her own investigation (with Ling Xiaoyu). Realizing that G Corporation will track Alisa down, Nina turns Alisa's network offline. Afterwards, Jin sends her to Kyoto to go after Alisa. On her way to the android girl's location at Lee Chaolan's mansion, Nina receives a radio message that G Corporation soldiers led by Anna are after Alisa, too. After noticing her sister's presence, she decides to help Alisa and Xiaoyu escape by turning Alisa's network back online. After the two girls escape the mansion just in time, Nina arrives to welcome Anna once again. Later, it's revealed that there was another fight between the two sisters at the mansion. Nina falls unconscious after Anna wakes up. Anna then attempts to capture Nina, amusing Lee Chaolan. This attempt leads to an unknown outcome, though Nina most likely escaped.

Believing he will be able to use the box to amplify the power of his Devil Gene and thus defeat the Mishima Zaibatsu and his son, Jin Kazama, he begins plotting. Kazuya hires Nina to help him obtain Pandora, promising her a vast sum of money if they are successful.[40]

Rival Fight

Ending Description
Kazuya and Nina reach the Antarctic, but Nina steps in front of Kazuya before he can reach the box. He questions the meaning of what she's doing, and Nina reveals that she is a double-agent, sent to retrieve Pandora for someone who wants it more. Kazuya says he was waiting for her true intentions to be revealed, and uses a hand signal to order numerous G Corporation soldiers to form up behind him. Nina takes out the soldiers in the blink of an eye and disappears. Kazuya is not concerned with where she has gone, and approaches Pandora.[42]

Tekken Tag Tournament 2


Tekken Tag Tournament 2 - Nina Arcade Ending Movie

Nina appeared as a playable character in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. She retains her moveset from Tekken 6 along with a few additions and a network of alliances.

Born to a family of assassins, Nina became one herself after receiving training from her father. Killing is her business and business is good. If ordered to do so, she won't hesitate to take out any target. She currently works behind the scenes for Jin Kazama as an assassin for the Mishima Zaibatsu.

"You've got a date with death."[43]

Ending Description
Nina stands on a rooftop with a sniper rifle. She looks through the scope, aiming at her target, and succeeds in taking him out. She flees over the rooftops and through the streets, but her target's armed guards catch up to her. They begin chasing her and firing at her. She returns fire, forcing them to take cover. The guards decide to call for backup. Having slowed them down, she takes a high position and drops down on the guards, dispatching them all with a mix of her physical abilities and gunplay. She is then descended on by a helicopter, from which Anna mans a mounted machine gun. Anna fires on Nina, forcing her to flee. Nina successfully loses them and climbs to the top of a water tower. The scene ends with Nina smirking, taking aim at the helicopter, and firing a single shot.

Special Alliance Partners:

Tekken Revolution

Nina appears in Tekken Revolution as a playable character.

Tekken Card Tournament

Nina appears in Tekken Card tournament as a playable character. She plays as a balanced character who can heal rapidly, draw rapidly, and launch powerful attacks, but at the cost of having more difficult, or "technical" requirements for some cards to activate. She can be played in a lot of unique ways, and doesn't favor any major ability, except for healing. She can heal herself in large amounts, but her cards have to be in specific positions in order to work, making her healing tank playstyle a lot more luck-based. Playing as Nina requires patience, a high understanding of her cards' various technical abilities, and not being afraid to take chances, but she is overall a very useful character that any seasoned player can use. She currently is the best character to use in the game, doing well in tournaments, and is also a viable tag partner.

Tekken (Mobile)

Nina appears as a playable character in Tekken (Mobile) as part of the main story character alongside Kazuya. Nina currently has three costumes: the camo-suit, the wedding dress, and the black catsuit.

Tekken: Bloodline

Nina appears in the animated series Tekken: Bloodline as one of the competitors in the third King of Iron Fist Tournament, though her participation in at least one of the previous tournaments is referenced. She meets Jin early on after coincidentally sharing the same van to the venue, and warns him of the unspeakable evils unleashed by Kazuya Mishima. She fights Xiaoyu in the preliminary stages, and, despite her experience, is defeated by Xiaoyu. Nina's relationship with the Mishimas, her sister and her son is never mentioned, and, unlike in Tekken 3, she shows no sign of being under the influence of Ogre.

The King of Fighters: All Star

Nina appears as a playable unit in The King of Fighters: All Star mobile game. Two different Nina units are available: one unit features consists of Nina in her Player 1 outfit from Tekken 7: Fated Retribution while the other depicts her in her Tekken 6 Player 1 outfit.


Nina has been a fan favorite from her debut, owing to her speed, lethal moves, and chain throws. Her strength is on par with most characters, and she can even evade and counterattack. Her combos are something to watch out for, as they are elaborate, strong, and even lethal. However, her chain throws are difficult to perform and require precision and patience (though Tekken 8 introduced easy inputs for her chainthrows, they deal less damage than a chainthrow done with the proper input). She also has access to a full throw game and an Attack Reversal, which when used to counter left-handed punches leads to some of her strongest chain throws, though one must react extremely quickly to do so.

She can be very technical character and is far from beginner-friendly. Her main point of offense are her Uppercut to Jab Step, Creeping Step, and Snakeshot, which allow her a quick transition to a crouching status, a sidestep, her moves from quarter circle forward (which include her chain throws) and in case of Snakeshot, a backsway. The variety of options can make her difficult to master but also very difficult for the opponent to read.

In Tekken 8 Nina now uses dual pistols that can cause chip damage in some moves. Tekken 8 also introduced easy inputs for her chainthrows, though using them deals less damage than the proper input.

Fighting Style

Nina's fighting styles is comprised of martial arts of Aikido & Koppojutsu in ways of an assassin.


Nina Williams Moves

Character Relationships

  • Anna Williams - Her younger sister and rival. Nina regards Anna with a mixture of hatred and indifference. The two frequently clash, with Nina usually emerging the victor. Since childhood, Anna has sought to win their father's approval by besting Nina,[citation needed] something she rarely achieved. Whilst Anna's sometimes appears to long for a less antagonistic relationship with Nina,[44] Nina by contrast has little interest in Anna beyond removing her as an obstacle to her ambitions, and humiliating her.
  • Richard Williams - Her father, who trained Nina in assassination arts. Nina and her father seem to have similar personalities, with Richard training Nina to be a cool-headed killer.[citation needed] They both have a practical attitude, with Richard favoring Nina over Anna for her successes.[citation needed]
  • Mrs. Williams - Her mother. She trained her and Anna in aikido.
  • Steve Fox - Her son, created by the Mishima Zaibatsu from Nina's genetic material while she was in cryosleep. Nina was initially sent to assassinate him in Tekken 4, accepting the job despite being told about the nature of their relation; however, she and Steve's ending cutscenes depict her protecting Steve or at least hesitating to kill him. In her Tekken 7 Character Episode ending cutscene, Nina is indifferent to Steve being her son and claims to feel nothing for him. Despite this, Steve was still willing to help her escape from the Tekken Force afterwards.
  • Jin Kazama - Jin was Nina's assassination target when she was brainwashed by Ogre in Tekken 3. Nina went on to be Jin's personal bodyguard and confidante in Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion (and in the non-canonical Tekken: Blood Vengeance and Street Fighter X Tekken). At the beginning of Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, Nina was searching for Jin with Tekken Force following his disappearance at the end of Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion's Scenario Campaign. When Heihachi regained control of the Mishima Zaibatsu, she was sent to kidnap Jin from Violet Systems for him.
  • Kazuya Mishima - Her assassination target in Tekken 2. Kazuya had her captured and forced her to undergo a cryosleep experiment near the end of Tekken 2. As part of the Mishima Zaibatsu in Tekken 6 and Tekken 7, Nina worked against him and his faction, G Corporation. In Tekken 8, Kazuya recruits Nina as his direct subordinate and grants her title of commander of the G Corporation forces. She and Kazuya had a temporary partnership in the non-canonical Street Fighter X Tekken, though Nina was revealed to be spying for Jin.
  • Heihachi Mishima - Her assassination target in Tekken. Heihachi was responsible for the Mishima Zaibatsu Supersoldier Program, and had Nina's genetic material harvested whilst she was in cold sleep to create a child for the experimental program: Steve Fox. Heihachi later forced Nina to work for him when he defeated her and reclaimed the Mishima Zaibatsu in Tekken 7: Fated Retribution. In the non-canonical Death by Degrees, Heihachi sent his Tekken Force after Nina and demanded that she act as his 'superweapon'.
  • Lei Wulong - Lei Wulong busted The Syndicate, Nina's employers in Tekken 4. He also appeared in Nina and Steve's Tekken 4 ending videos, both times attempting to apprehend Nina.
  • Eddy Gordo - Nina's co-worker in Tekken Force in Tekken 6.
  • Doctor Bosconovitch - Nina became his test subject in his cryosleep research.
  • Lars Alexandersson - Lars is her enemy and directly works against Nina in Tekken 6 and Tekken 7. Lars' rebel army seceded from Tekken Force whilst Nina was working there and he has been at war with the Mishima Zaibatsu ever since. They were allies before Lars rebelled against the Zaibatsu. Nina then considered Lars to be a traitor.[45] During the events of Tekken 8, Nina is directly opposed to Lars as she works algonside Kazuya.
  • Alisa Bosconovitch - Nina initially appeared to be Alisa's enemy in Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion, until Jin revealed that Alisa had been spying for the Zaibatsu all along. After being reprogrammed by Lee Chaolan, Alisa helped prevent Nina and Tekken Force from kidnapping Jin in Tekken 7: Fated Retribution. The two continue to be enemies in Tekken 8, with opposing goals. In the non-canonical Tekken: Blood Vengeance, Nina is Alisa's commander.
  • Ogre - Nina was brainwashed by Ogre into pursuing Jin as an assassination target in Tekken 3.
  • Lee Chaolan - Lee prevented Nina from kidnapping Jin from a Violet Systems facility, and then detonated a building with her inside during the events of Tekken 7: Fated Retribution. In Nina's Tekken 8 Character Episode ending, it is revealed that Nina wanted payback for this. In the non-canonical Tekken: The Motion Picture, Lee employed Nina to kill Kazuya and was in a romantic relationship with her.
  • Claudio Serafino - Nina's ally in Tekken 7. They were both coerced into working for Heihachi after he defeated them.
  • Anna's Fiancé - Nina assassinated him on his wedding day.
  • Emma Kliesen - Emma worked with genetic material harvested from Nina during the Mishima Zaibatsu Supersoldier Program.
  • Ling Xiaoyu - Her opponent in the non-canonical Tekken Pachislot intro cutscene. In the non-canonical Online Tekken Comic, Nina becomes a subject of Xiaoyu's jealousy for being stuck with Jin, thinking Jin is choosing Nina over her in misunderstanding.
  • Edgar Grant - In the non-canonical Death by Degrees, Edgar Grant fooled Nina by disguising as her team's sneaker Alan Smithee during her mission.
  • Lana Lei - In the non-canonical Death by Degrees, Lana Lei captured Nina to use her in her evil superweapon project.
  • Bryce Adams - In the non-canonical Death by Degrees, Bryce was sent to stop Nina in her mission by Lana Lei.
  • Lukas Hayes - In the non-canonical Death by Degrees, Lukas partially worked with Nina during her mission.
  • Enrique Ortega - In the non-canonical Death by Degrees, Enrique tried to stop Nina in her mission.




  • It is possible that Nina and Kunimitsu were supposed to be the same character originally, as seen in Kunimitsu's very early concept art.

  • In Tekken Chronicle, Nina's hair color is brown instead of blonde and her occupation is listed as a boxer instead of an assassin.[citation needed]
