Nina slapping Anna after losing

Tekken Tag Tournament has characters that have special network partners. This consists of special Netsu Power allegiances, team throws, special interludes, and special Game Over screens.


The list below indicates how many hits the life bar must take before it starts to flash, indicating that rage (Netsu) mode has been triggered for the inactive character. The effect remains active for 3 seconds.

Netsu Power is the temporary state the player's selected player is in when the lifebar outline is flashing red. It is also known as the Anger Power, because it activates when your on screen character gets hit a set number of times and the off screen characters gets angry. The number of hits required for the Netsu activation depends on which characters are teamed up.

During the Netsu Power the fighter will inflict 1.3 times the assigned standard damage. Unlike popular believes the Netsu extra damage cannot be accumulated with the Ki Power damage, the Ki Power damage modifier will take precedence over the Netsu Power in this case. If the player starts a throw but the Netsu runs out before the actual throw damage registers it will do the normal amount of damage.

Below is a list of the number of hits it requires for the Netsu Power Up to start. It does not matter what kind of hit it is, mid air juggle hits, unblockables, special moves or a plain and simple jab all count as a hit.[1]

Netsu Team Allegiance

The following chart shows the character relationships of each fighter that has an impact on when a character will get enraged from seeing their partner getting hurt in battle.

When their partner has taken a certain number of hits, the Offscreen Character will become enraged. A throw is counted as 1.8 hits. The default number of hits changes for each character and is listed under Hits Before Enraged. For example, Nina will wait until a neutral tag partner has taken 7 hits before becoming enraged, whilst Yoshimitsu will by default become enraged after his partner has taken only 4 hits.

If a character included is in the Hates column, it indicates there is no Netsu activated when the character is off screen. This means no matter how many hits their partner takes, the offscreen character will never become enraged. Some characters by default will never become enraged, their Hits Before Enraged column has been left blank.

A final column is included noting which characters have special win poses together. These do not affect Netsu data. Netsu data shows stats relevant to the game and should not be altered.
