The Worst and Best Tekken Guest Character of All Time
Bandai Namco's "Tekken" is no stranger to crossovers — “Tekken 7” became home to Akuma from “Street Fighter.” Although series director Katsuhiro Harada had explained how difficult it is to implement crossover characters, he also shared he’s still open to adding them again in the future. With that in mind, it’s time to look back at the worst and best “Tekken” guest characters.
Worst: Noctis
Many consider Noctis Lucis Caelum from “Final Fantasy” a bad fit for “Tekken,” and his gameplay is often described as “annoying” by those unfortunate enough to fight him. The reach of his sword, his Warp-strike, and his retractable spear make Noctis a pain to battle at range, while his daggers and quick movement make him a menace up close.
Best: Geese Howard
The antagonist from “Fatal Fury” and “The King of Fighters,” Geese seamlessly fit into “Tekken.” Like Akuma, Geese has a special Rage Drive system, but unlike Akuma’s, Geese's is more traditional. Combining his Rage Drive with his Reppuu Ken and unique parry system makes Geese an enjoyable character to play at every skill level.
