Introduction[edit]

The King of Iron Fist Tournament (ザ・キング・オブ・アイアンフィストトーナメント Za Kingu obu Airon Fisuto Tōnamento) is a fictional world-wide martial arts competition that is held infrequently and is hosted by the Mishima Zaibatsu. It draws renowned fighters from all around the globe, with the prize generally being control of the company offered to the victor (who then is free to host the next King of Iron Fist tournament).

The sponsors of the tournament act as a host of sorts for the competition and are almost always the Sub-Boss or Final Boss of the game.
