YUU - A highly technical and knowledgeable Tekken player, Yuu has consistently been a top level Japanese player for the past 15 years.

NOROMA - A reigning representative player for the Kyushu region of Japan, Noroma has previously defeated the dominant Korean Tekken scene on their own soil during a Tekken World Tour Qualifier in Seoul.

DOUBLE - Once labeled as a prodigy in his elementary school years, he is the Tekken 'Speed Star' from the Hokuriki region. Boasting a very high level of speed in his offense, he quickly defeats his opponents in flashy way display.

AO - With numerous foreign Tekken tournament history under his belt, he is the 'Prince' of Tekken with iron defense. He fought valiantly in Tekken and against tears back at the EVO 2015 grand finals.

HAKAI OH - The only pro license player from the Kansai region. Described as a defensive player,  he smashes the opponent's mind as Osaka's Destruction God.

PEKOS - The Miracle Comeback fighter. Through sheer strength of will in the most difficult of times, the legend of the MASTERCUP.5 grand final comeback was born.

TAKE - Japan's Strongest Shield. Having a prominent defensive skill in disabling the opponent's options in battle to seize victory, he emerged as a high placer during the previous Japan Tekken 7 Championship Finals.

NOBI - Pioneer in the Tekken World. His super offensive rushdown proved too oppressive against many formidable opponents leading to his Tokaigi 2018 victory.
