Introduction[edit]

Angel (エンジェル Enjeru) was introduced in Tekken 2, and made her appearance in the non-canonical Tekken Tag Tournament and Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Angel is a mysterious character, leading many fans to speculate as to who or what she really is, not unlike Unknown, nothing at all is truly known of her. Harada has confirmed however via his Twitter that she is not part of Kazuya's soul[2].

Her title in the original trilogy is Angel.

Story

Prologue
Although Kazuya is seemingly possessed with a black heart, there is still some good left in him. Angel will battle against Devil to save Kazuya.
Ending (Unofficial Synopsis)
Angel sits on the ledge of skyscraper, staring out into the night sky. Suddenly she throws herself off the ledge, becoming engulfed in the fog below. As she falls, the 10 original fighters race through her mind. Then 10 skeletal hands are placed together in circle, as if making a pact. Devil appears surrounded with by skeletons with wings. Angel breaks through the image and soars in to the moonlit sky, orbs of light begin to collect in the palm of her hand that she then sends cascading in to the night.

Trivia

  • To unlock her and Devil, you must beat Arcade mode using Kazuya. She's selected pressing one of the kick buttons while selecting Devil.
  • Angel is the final boss if you play as Devil.
  • Angel's sub-bosses are Heihachi Mishima (Stage 8) and Jun Kazama (Stage 9).
  • In the Arcade version of Tekken 2, Angel is called Devil when you select her and when you fight in a match with her. She is also mute when fighting, with the exception of when she is defeated; her knock-out sound is simply Kazuya's (whose sounds are shared with Devil, rather than being distorted like on the PlayStation version).
  • When hurt, Angel makes strange bird like noises in the console version. Furthermore when she uses her laser a chiming sound can be heard.[[1]]
  • Like Devil, she uses her wings to block incoming blockable attacks, a feature which was removed in posterior games. This didn't provide any advantage for Angel and Devil; it was just a different block animation.

Angel will be featured as a DLC character in the console version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

Story

Normally elegant and beautiful, Angel bellows out a deep, manly voice during intense combat. First appearing in Tekken 2 as an opposite identity to Kazuya's devil form, Angel wields the power to purify all evil things. The motions of her standard attacks are feminine and elegant, but when it comes down to the wire, she uses aggressive, rough attacks[3].

Said to be the opposite to the Devil, Angel carries both a compassionate and cruel side[4].

(From Wii U Edition)

Said to be the exact opposite of the Devil, this elegant being hides a merciless side behind that benevolent face[5].

Ending

Angel is flying high in the sky, confronting Devil. Devil starts firing laser attacks at Angel, who repeatedly blocks and deflects the lasers. She then creates a gigantic forcefield of energy, which she sends crashing at Devil. Devil is hit by the impact and begins to burn away as a result. The screen changes and shows an unconscious Kazuya lying face down on the ground, a single white feather floating down onto him.

Trivia

  • She fights against True Ogre in a cinematic trailer, thus interrupting the battle between Nina Anna and Raven and Kunimitsu[6].
  • She also appears in Unknown's ending, in which she also "purifies" Unknown much like she does with Devil in Tekken Tag Tournament.
  • She has a special tag throw with Devil Jin where she will throw her opponent in the air using "Obliteration" and soon both she and Devil Jin will fire their lasers at the opponent simultaneously[7].
  • When she is struck, some feathers fall from her wings.
