How Raven joined the Tourney

An international intelligence agent considered highly skilled and iron-hearted, codename Raven. Apart from a scar in the shape of an "X" on his face, his details, including age and nationality, are unknown. Raven entered the fifth tournament to find out who or what was behind the event.

Raven makes his first appearance in the opening movie for Tekken 5, as he witnesses the attack on Hon-Maru by Jack-4s while on a mission to look into the Mishima Zaibatsu and G Corporation, as well as the subsequent explosion. It seems that he is the first one to report of Heihachi Mishima's supposed demise.

  • That's right, someone is giving you a wrong name. Heihachi is. (When fighting Shin)
  • On the contrary, it certainly is. (When fighting Ganryu)

  • Good, I'll teach you my skills before ninjutsu. (When fighting Emily G3)


  • Raven shares his English voice actor with Wesker.
  • Because he shares his name with a character from Teen Titans, Raven is the only character who first appears in Tekken 5 to not appear in Tourney 1, but this doesn't include Jack-5. The others are Feng Wei, Roger Jr., Jinpachi Mishima, and Asuka Kazama, but all of those are in Tourney 1. None of the characters that premiered in Tekken 5 that are featured in SSBT and SSBT2 have to be unlocked.
  • Raven's rival is Masanori Fukushima, leader of the Seven Shizugatake Spearmen. His second rival is Guy from Final Fight.
