Introduction

Eddy Gordo (エディ・ゴルド Edi Gorudo) first appeared in Tekken 3, and he has returned to every game released after. In Tekken 4 and Tekken 5, he was merely a "costume" swap for Christie Monteiro. However, in Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection onward, he is given his own character space.

Debuting at Tekken 3, Eddy's family was once one of Brazil's most notable families, being not only rich, but also playing an important role in terms of the law. Eddy's father would later be fatally shot, during his attempt to destroy a drug cartel, before dying, he told his son to admit to killing his father, in order to stay in prison as protection from any further attempts at their family. It was during this time that Eddy met his master. During a prison riot, Eddy witnessed the old man's skill in Capoeira, and requested to be taught in the art. Finishing his prison time after eight long years, Eddy swore to finally get revenge on his father's killer, but not before he repaid his debt to his master by teaching his granddaughter. Deciding to lay low momentarily, Eddy later resurfaced when his master was finally released, but the terminal illness that had plagued him, had begun taking it's toll, turning the once, great Capoeira master, into a disheveled old man. Failing to win the next tournament, Eddy forced himself to serve the winner, Jin Kazama, in his world conquest to save the old man. Though clearly shocked and reluctant, Eddy continues to serve Jin loyally, in the hopes that his master will finally be cured. An interesting note is that, first, Eddy and Christie's endings imply that Eddy's master died at the tournament's conclusion, but Eddy's dialogue with Wang actually implies that Eddy's master has actually passed away during the sixth tournament.

An overall cool and calm person, Eddy lived an enviable life, having a loving family, retaining a good personality, and being more blessed in terms of material belongings. However, the loss of his family and blessings at the hands of an unknown drug group. Later it would be revealed that Kazuya Mishima was responsible for the death of Eddy's father, something that Eddy would eventually learn himself. With his prison time, Eddy looked up to his master as a father figure, being taught rigorously for eight years, and in debt, Eddy would teach his master's granddaughter. In regards to Eddy's relationship with Christie, the two are extremely close. This is mainly due to Eddy being the one who taught Christie in the absence of her grandfather, this would eventually cause a bond so close, that fans speculate it to be a romantic one. Another noteworthy thing is that Eddy does his best to avoid Christie, hoping to not involve her with regards to him being a member of the Tekken Force, and Christie's immediate response to find Eddy after his many disappearances.

His title in the original trilogy is Avenger.

Story

Prologue (Manual)
Eddy was born into one of the richest families in Brazil. Since he was a small boy he knew he would one day take over the family business. He was well-liked in his home town because he was a hard worker who treated others as his equals.
One day, when he was 19, Eddy came home from school to find his father shot and dying. He recalled that his father had been unusually nervous and fearful in recent weeks.
Eddy's father working to destroy the drug cartel in Brazil. His untimely death occurred just when he had obtained enough evidence to put the kingpins away for good. In his last breaths, Eddy's father told him, "Now is not the right time to fight. Falsely admit to the crime and hide in prison. Only there will you be safe". Eddy went along with his father's last wish and the model student went from a life of luxury to incarceration as a murderer.
Prison life was hell and not a day went by that Eddy didn't vow to get even with his father's killers. One day during a prison riot he watched an old man with great power fighting using a technique he called Capoeira. For 8 years Eddy practiced until he became a master and could be considered a lethal weapon.
Upon his release from prison, Eddy heard about the 'King of Iron Fist Tournament 3' and the MFE. He decided to enter the tournament, believing he could persuade the MFE to help him seek his long-awaited revenge.
Ending (Unofficial Synopsis)
"Seek the truth", a limo rolls up by a mansion. 23:00, Eddy looks out the window anxiously. An hour later, Eddy breaks into a druglord's mansion and violently attacks him. The druglord points to a table with photographs of Kazuya on it.

Story

Prologue (In-Game Text)
Christie is the granddaughter of the Capoeira master who taught Eddy Gordo the art of Capoeira during his incarceration in prison. While in prison, Eddy swore an oath to the master to pass on the art of Capoeira to his granddaughter. Eddy sought out Christie shortly after his return from The King of Iron Fist Tournament 3 and taught her the art of Capoeira, just as he promised his master. After only two years of tutelage, Eddy turned Christie into an impressive fighter. But soon thereafter, Eddy abruptly disappeared, leaving Christie only with the words, "I must seek vengeance against the enemy responsible for the death of my father." Troubled by his sudden and mysterious disappearance, Christie chases after Eddy with her only lead — The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4.
Ending (Unofficial Synopsis)
Christie Monteiro has defeated Heihachi Mishima and won the tournament. The audience is cheering for her, and people begin walking to her, taking photos of her and complimenting her about her victory. One man starts to interview her about her victory, and Christie is very nonchalant throughout this. A man in a suit walks up to her, holding a golden trophy that is shaped like Heihachi's head. Christie looks through the crowd and sees Eddy, who has a sling on one of his arms. Christie starts to run up to him while yelling, "Eddy!", twice. An echo of her saying this is heard after the second time she says it, and Christie runs up to him and hugs him. Eddy hugs her with his other arm (the arm that doesn't have a sling around it). Christie says, "Eddy...", and then she closes her eyes and smiles.

  • In Tekken 4, Eddy is selectable by pressing "Triangle" while on Christie at the "Character Select" screen.

Eddy threatens to kill Kazuya for what he did. After having won, Eddy calls out to his father, saying that he has finally avenged him, before proceeding with the tournament so that he can win money for his master's medical bills.
Final Stage Jinpachi Mishima: Eddy walks through Final Stage 2. Jinpachi (in human form) walks up behind him and says, "I'm impressed that you've made it this far." (Eddy turns around upon hearing Jinpachi's voice) "I am Jinpachi Mishima. My goal... My goal is to destroy all existence!" After he finishes speaking, Jinpachi transforms into his "Devil" form.
Ending (Unofficial Synopsis)

Story

Prologue (In-Game Text)
Eddy failed to win The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. He pleaded with Jin, who had become the new head of the Mishima Zaibatsu, to help him save his mentor. After looking at Eddy and appearing to think for a moment, Jin agreed to help with developing medical treatment for Eddy's mentor in exchange for Eddy joining the Tekken Force and reporting to him. Eddy knew nothing about the Tekken Force, other than it was a private military outfit, but agreed to join if it would save his mentor. Eddy became a member of the Tekken Force and carried out plans of destruction around the world. Even though he knew the consequences of his actions, Eddy was unable to leave the Tekken Force.. When the Mishima Zaibatsu announced The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6, Eddy joined the tournament as a member of the Tekken Force in order to eliminate those who would threaten Jin.
Ending (Unofficial Synopsis)
Christie is shown standing at a grave with a coffin that hasn't been buried yet. Christie places both hands together and begins weeping. Suddenly, Eddy Gordo arrives and stands next to her.

Eddy clenches his fist and throws a pin badge to the ground, breaking it slightly. Jin Kazama's branding/tattoo is shown on the triangular shaped badge.

Trivia

  • In the Scenario Campaign mode, Eddy is shown in a cutscene with Nina Williams and Jin Kazama after Lars attacked the lab Alisa was in. Eddy tells Jin that he'll hold his part of the deal for saving his master's life.
  • In the Scenario Campaign mode, Eddy serves as the boss of the "Tekken Force 4th Special Forces Operational Group Command" stage.
  • Eddy's first three opponents in Scenario Campaign's "Arena" mode are Lars Alexandersson, Anna Williams, and Kazuya Mishima.

He will perform Rodeo spin around the opponents head and when they're confused he slams them to the ground and then his partner will perform "Slippery Kicks" and whoever is tagged in will perform "Perch Flop Kick" on the opponent from there. (this also applies vice versa among the three characters.)

Eddy (Lateef Crowder) fighting Raven.

"Eddie Gordo [sic] from Valencorp. Capoeira master. Underworld enforcer. There's a price on his head from a Neo-Salvadorian group. He's powerful, but he's easily frustrated." - Kazuya

Story (Unofficial Synopsis)

Eddy Gordo is featured in the live-action Tekken movie as one of the Iron Fist tournament's competitors, played by famous Capoeira practitioner Lateef Crowder. Representing the company Valencorp, he competes in the first match of the tournament, against G-Corp's Raven. Though the two seem evenly matched at first, Raven is eventually able to turn things around by blocking one of Eddy's strikes and hitting him with a low blow, which allows him to ground Eddy and beat him to a bloody pulp with a series of punches to the face.

Trivia

Eddy's name is misspelled as "Eddie".
Coincidentally, although Eddy and Christie have no connection in this film, when the tournament's fighters are being announced to the audience, Eddy is called up directly before her.
