Opening[]

Heihachi has finally perfected his youth formula. He claims that the world is his for the taking. But before he deals with his family, Heihachi wants to test his newly obtained young body. He hears of warriors unlike any he has ever met come to do battle. So he leaves Japan to challenge these new opponents to see who is the real King of the Iron Fist.

"Finally, after all those years of research. The formula has been perfected. And the results are astounding. Ah, to be young again! The whole world looks brand new and is mine for the taking. And now I have the chance to test my abilities. To push myself harder than ever before. My pathetic family and their weaknesses will have to wait. Warriors, the likes of whom I've never encountered before, stand ready to fight. But are they ready for the new Heihachi Mishima?"

Heihachi-Toro2.JPG

Reason: After a brief monologue about his weak opponents, Heihachi is encountered by Toro and Kuro. Despite Toro's outspoken respect of the martial artist, Kuro calls Heihachi "old and feeble". Upset by Kuro's arrogance, Heihachi challenges both him and Toro to a fight.

Transcript[]

Heihachi: An utter disappointment! This has been no test of my abilities at all. I could beat these fools at any age.

(sees Toro and Kuro)

Heihachi: What now? Two cats? This whole trial has been a waste of time.

Toro: Look, over there. Does that look like...?

Kuro: It is! Heihachi! But he looks so... young! Where is his gray hair?

Toro: Kuro! You must have respect for an elder warrior.

Heihachi: Elder? Do I look like a feeble old man to you?

Toro: Not old at all, Heihachi-san.

Kuro: Hard to tell if you're feeble or not.

Heihachi: You should have listened to your friend. Now I'll give you a lesson in respect you won't forget!

Ending[]

After he has fought all of his opponents he says that they were no big deal, but feels that he can fight the whole world now.

Heihachi Ending.jpg

"I've performed better than I could ever imagined. The formula has given me reflexes and strength I haven't felt since the prime of my youth. I am a young man again. The fire that burned within me now burns even stronger. All my old strength has returned. But that's not all. The formula must have changed me in other ways. I now possess a power like no other. Soon the world will witness the true power of Heihachi Mishima!"

Trivia[]

  • Heihachi is one of five Third party characters, with the others being Big Daddy, Isaac Clarke, Dante, and Raiden.
    • Heihachi is the only third-party character that does not originate from an "M" rated franchise.
  • Heihachi appeared in a trailer for All-Stars before his game, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 was released.
  • Heihachi is the fourth villain character in the game. The first three are Colonel Radec, Sweet Tooth and Big Daddy.
  • Heihachi and Evil Cole MacGrath are the only villains to have a light rival theme.
  • Heihachi is the only character that can perform wake-up offensive attacks, similar to Tekken. After being knocked-down, he can directly perform the spinning low kick with Btn triangle.png or a dive after wake-up roll with Btn square.png.
    • The beach ball is a projectile that can bounce around the stage when any player hits the ball with an attack. Opponents that are hit from the ball will knock out their AP. The ball glows brighter as players hit the ball at consecutive times. The brighter it glows, the more APs knock out when one got hit. The ball's mechanism is based on the Tekken Ball mode of Tekken 3 and the Nintendo Wii U release of Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
  • Heihachi is the only character announced who originates from a fighting game (unlike Kratos who appeared as a guest fighter in Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny and Mortal Kombat 9, and Dante, who has appeared as a recurring fighter in the Marvel vs Capcom series).
  • Heihachi will always speak Japanese in the game. This makes him one of three characters to speak a language other than English alongside Toro, who only makes cat meows when they speak and Kat & Dusty. This is due to the fact that, even in other countries, characters from the Tekken series always speak their native language which, in Heihachi's case, is Japanese.
    • This makes Heihachi one of six characters that don't have normal speech patterns. The others are Toro (who can only use cat-like meows, as mentioned above), Sackboy (who cannot speak at all), Sir Daniel Fortesque (who sounds muffled due to his lack of a lower jaw), Big Daddy (who only makes monsterous noises) and Kat (who speaks in a made-up language that is intended to sound French).
  • During his rival cutscene against Toro, not only does Toro recognize him, but they also notice that he looks a bit different than before. This is a reference to Street Fighter x Tekken, where Toro (as well as their friend Kuro) were guests in the PS3 and PS Vita versions of the game. As they recognize the older Heihachi from SFxT, them being confused on how Heihachi is younger is a reference and minor fourth wall break to Heihachi's appearance in the game, which is based on his younger appearance from Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
  • SuperBot affectionately calls the Mishima Coat costume the "Pimp Heihachi".
  • Heihachi's original voice actor, Daisuke Gōri, did not reprise his role due to his passing in January 2010.
    • The Tekken developer, Bandai Namco, chose his "younger" self as his main appearance in this game in order to suit his younger voice from the new voice actor, Unshō Ishizuka, possibly to tie into Tekken Tag Tournament 2. As the late Ishizuka first voiced the character in the film Tekken: Blood Vengeance, Heihachi is one of few characters to represent media outside of video games.
      • Heihachi's fourth color on his default costume, as well as Mishima Fundoshi, have Heihachi in his old man appearance from Tekken 3 onward.
  • During the beginning of Heihachi's trailer, when he's debuted, his model freezes a few moments before it cuts to the next part.
  • Heihachi's second taunt may be based on Lars Alexandersson's Tekken Tag Tournament 2 ending, where the entire Mishima and Kazama family eats with chopsticks.
  • Heihachi's third color on his default costume seems to based on his standard P2 costume, consisting of him being shirtless with gauntlets and blue pants with golden detailing.
  • Despite Heihachi Mishima being his full name, only Heihachi is written on the character select screen.
  • Heihachi, Dante, Fat Princess, Toro, Emmett Graves and Isaac Clarke are the only characters to not have a stage represented from their series.
  • Both Heihachi and Zeus are the only villains in the game to have Medium-typed main menu themes.
  • Heihachi, along with KratosSweet Tooth, Raiden, and Zeus, is one of five characters in the game to have been a father. However, like Zeus, Heihachi has a disdain towards his family members (with the exception of Kuma, his pet bear). Unlike Zeus, Heihachi hates the majority of his family (his son, grandson, father, etc.), while Zeus "dislikes" his son, Kratos.
  • Heihachi is the oldest character in the game, with his debut in the original arcade version of Tekken being released in 1994.
  • Heihachi has made the most appearances outside of Playstation All Stars. at over 20 games, including crossovers, spin-offs, and non-gaming media (such as movies).
  • In the opening for PlayStation All-Stars, as Dante points his Ebony and Ivory firearms at Nariko, Heihachi grabs him by both hands, turns around, and throws Dante into the air. This makes Heihachi the only third-party character in the intro to interact with another third-party character.
  • Heihachi, Parappa, Sweet Tooth, ToroSpike and Sir Daniel are the only characters from the era of the first PlayStation to appear in the game.
  • Heihachi and Dante are the only characters to have some form of major representation within both Playstation All Stars and the Super Smash Bros. series, with both being playable Mii costumes.
    • However, unlike Dante, the version of Heihachi used in the Mii costume is based on his Tekken Tag Tournament 2 appearance, much like his PS All Stars counterpart.
    • Coincidentally, Dante's Mii costume was released in the same update Tekken started getting major representation within the Super Smash Bros. series, where the playable fighter was Heihachi's son, Kazuya.

Crossovers[]

  • Heihachi and Kratos were both PlayStation-exclusive guest characters in the Soulcalibur series. Heihachi appeared in the PlayStation 2 version of Soulcalibur II and Kratos appeared in Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny for the PlayStation Portable. Heihachi also reappears in Soulcalibur II HD Online. Although Dante almost made it into Soulcalibur III, but was scrapped.
  • Heihachi makes a cameo in Pac-Man Fever.
  • Heihachi also appears alongside Dante in the collaborative crossover title, Project X Zone.
  • Heihachi was announced at the same time as Toro. Both characters are also playable in the crossover game Street Fighter X Tekken, where Toro (and Kuro), as well as Cole MacGrath, appeared as guests exclusively for the PlayStation 3 and Vita versions.
  • Heihachi appears as a downloadable costume for the Mii Brawler in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and for Wii U, the two fourth installments of a series that was the main inspiration for PlayStation All-Stars.
    • The downlodable costume would also return in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
  • He also makes a cameo as one of Pac-Man's taunts in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He also cameos in the DLC stage, Mishima Dojo, a stage that is bundled with Kazuya Mishima as a playable character.
