The Tekken Force (鉄拳衆 Tekkenshu?), is a private corporate army in the Tekken fighting game series. They first appeared in Tekken 3.


The Tekken Force was created by Heihachi Mishima after the events of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 2 when Kazuya Mishima was killed and thrown into a volcano. It acts as the private army and security force of the Mishima Zaibatsu, and it's supreme commander is the concurrent CEO of the Zaibatsu. The ranks of the soldiers take after the names of raptors, from lowest to highest rank being Crow, Falcon, Hawk, and Owl, respectively.

Heihachi dispatched the Tekken Force all over the world to quell small skirmishes in foreign countries in order to gain public approval and hide his true intentions for world conquest. Sometimes Heihachi seemed to even care about his soldiers' lives, as it was said that he "mourned" the loss of an entire squadron that he had sent to investigate the ruins that once held Ogre.

The Tekken Force members are opponents in the Tekken Force side games in Tekken 3 and Tekken 4. They are also opponents in the Tekken spin-off game Death by Degrees during the "Solitaria Penitentiary" parts of the game. Enrique Ortega hired the Tekken Force to protect himself.
