Arsenalty explores the history and lore of Tekken 7’s Heihachi Mishima

Being versed in Tekken lore is essential to be able to say “I’m a die-hard Tekken fan!” No matter how you slice it, everything surrounding the lore of Tekken seems to be tied to one central figure – Heihachi Mishima.

Because there has been so much going on with the lore of Tekken, it is many times difficult trying to understand the reasoning and mindset behind what many of the characters do. Why would a father throw his son into a volcano? Why would a father throw his son off a cliff? Why does everyone related to Heihachi have the devil gene beside (cough) Heihachi? His wife is now in the picture and even she has it!

Well, here’s a very in-depth video by Tekken YouTuber Arsenalty exploring Heihachi’s story with some interesting theories.

Check it out.

So, what do you think? What are your theories behind Heihachi’s actions?

Aziz Peregrino-Brimah aka Zee the CEO | Founder / Editor-in-chief of TekkenGamer | Gaming has been a passion of Zee's since the early days of Atari and ColecoVision. His first experience with Tekken was in the early 90's, and it was Tekken 3 that sealed the deal. True story... As a teenager Zee once received his Winn-Dixie paycheck and spent it all at the arcade the same day. Needless to say, his mother wasn't pleased.
