8 Dr. Boskonovitch & Gon – Tekken 3

Mix this with the huge quantities of injury and he was an unstoppable powerhouse in the best arms.
5 Jin – Tekken 4
Simply Body Laser Scraper. These 4 phrases will ship anybody that competed in Tekken Four into an hour-long rant.

What made Akuma overpowered was that he did not play by all the principles of the sport. He nonetheless had lots of his mechanics from Road Fighter which gave him unfair benefits over opponents. Even after a number of nerfs he nonetheless tops tier lists for the sport.
3 Fakhumram – Tekken 7

Even with the nerfs some gamers say he is nonetheless a bit too highly effective.
2 Steve – Tekken 5
Steve might be the strongest boxers in all of gaming because of his look in Tekken 5 – sorry Little Mac! His sidestep together with his pure sway as a personality made him slippery and troublesome to hit however that wasn’t the one factor that made him highly effective.
