Tiger Jackson (タイガー・ジャクソン Taigā Jyakuson) was introduced in Tekken 3, and he returned for Tekken Tag Tournament and Tekken Tag Tournament 2. He is "unlocked" by selecting Eddy Gordo with the Triangle or Start button (although Tekken 3 requires you to beat the game with seventeen unique characters first). Originally thought as an altenate-ego of Eddy, it is revealed in the Wii U version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2, which comes with a biography for each character, that they are different individuals citing the two are "...not at all related". Notably, in the Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion Artbook, which came coupled with the Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion Bundle, states that Tiger Jackson was originally an unused concept for Eddy Gordo not used for the final character.

Tekken Tag Tournament is a non-canonical Tekken game containing no plot.

Ending (Unofficial Synopsis)
Tiger is shown pointing at the sky and saying something in what appears to be Ling Xiaoyu's stage. Then, he points to the sky with his other hand. He raises and lowers one of his hands, and then he raises and lowers his other hand. He spins around once in one direction. Then, he spins around again in the opposite direction. Finally, he points at the screen and grins.


  • In Tekken Tag Tournament, there is a glitch with Tiger (and Eddy) when he is used as a Practice Mode dummy. All attacks performed on Tiger are read as a combo string, and it doesn't reset until you hit him to the ground or into full crouch.

Story Tiger is a mysterious man who entered the "The King of Iron Fist Tournament" dressed in clothes inspired by the golden age of soul music. His polished capoeira moves look quite similar to those used by Eddy, but the nature of the relationship between these two fighters remains a mystery. [2]

(From Wii U Edition)

This mysterious man, whose fashion embodies the essence of soul music, suddenly appeared on the stage of the King of Iron Fist Tournament. He share the same Capoeira skills as Eddy Gordo, but the two are not at all related[1].

Ending (Unofficial Synopsis)

Tiger does not have an ending, and thus is the only character in the game not to have one.


  • He also has special throw with Eddy or Christie. He will perform Rodeo Spin and he and his partner will perform "Slippery Kicks" and whoever is being tagged in will perform "Perch Flop Kick".
  • He has two win poses with Christie, both of which have them dancing together.
  • He and Unknown are the only characters to not have any items in the customize option. (Both can still have auras, panels changed ect.)


Character TriviaEdit

  • Tiger Jackson's name is never said by the announcer in Tekken 3 or Tekken Tag Tournament. However in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, his names is already mentioned by the announcer.
  • Tiger Jackson can be seen in the Pool Party stage of Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection. He can be seen even when Eddy Gordo is in the stage as well. Tiger replaces Lee Chaolan, who was the fighter seen in this stage in Tekken 5 (except when he was fighting).
  • In Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection, it is possible to customize Eddy Gordo to look like Tiger Jackson. It is also possible in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, even though he himself is also playable.
