To start off the match with the second selected fighter, hold down the tag button until the player intros begin.
Picking Kazuya and Devil as partners will give you a special tag team where Kazuya can transform into Devil and vise-versa. The down side of this tag team is that they can only transform while they are standing up.
Unknown’s Hidden Power
If you have an Analog controller, then you have access to Unknown’s Hidden Power. Unlike any other fighter, Unknown has the ability to change her fighting style at her own free will. If you decide that you want to take on a different fighter’s fighting style, then press the R3 button while in a match. Unknown will randomly choose a fighting style to imitate.
Play as an Unlocked Fighter
In “Arcade”, “Practice”, “Versus”, or “Tekken Bowl” mode, choose the “Random” icon until you get a fighter that is not unlocked yet. If you don’t get a new fighter, just press the “Select” button and try again. This fighter will be the next fighter that you can unlock during “Arcade” mode. You can use them before you unlock them, but the fighter won’t be listed until they are actually unlocked.
These are fighters that will go “berserk” after being hit by one of Devil’s laser beams:
Gun Jack, Jack-2, P. Jack
These are fighters that will barely be fazed when hit by True Ogre’s fire blast (i.e. they still stand after being hit):
Bryan Fury, Gun Jack, Jack-2, P. Jack
If you hold the down button the on the controller before the match begins, then you will be able to hear Tetsujin making clanking noises whenever he is hit or when he blocks. Mokujin will make clanking and wood chop sounds.
NOTE: The sound effect ends as soon as the match is over.
