Introduction

Armor King II (アーマー・キング Āmā Kingu) is the younger brother of the Armor King from the early Tekken games and first appeared as playable character in Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection and has returned for every subsequent game.

His past is shrouded in mystery. What is known is that he and his brother were a wrestling tag team, both using the same outfit and name. Why his brother decided to keep this a secret from the second King is unknown. He dislikes Marduk for being murdering his brother and holds a grudge against King for forgiving Marduk.

Story

Prologue (In-Game Text)
The mysterious masked wrestler, Armor King... Just who is behind the steel armor and black jaguar mask and what do they seek? The answer is veiled in mystery.
Interludes (Unofficial Synopsis)
Stage 4, Craig Marduk: Craig Marduk is walking when he notices Armor King behind him. Armor King remains silent. Marduk says, "I don't know who you are, but you'll pay for messing with me!" After Armor King wins, Marduk, who is now on the ground, asks, "Who the hell are you?" Armor King does not say anything, but kicks Marduk in the head and raises his fist while growling.
Ending (Unofficial Synopsis)
Armor King defeats Jinpachi Mishima, who dissolves into dust while Armor King watches. After Jinpachi dissolves, Armor King turns around and begins to walk away. As he walks away, he passes King, who is walking towards him. As Armor King walks past him, King runs up to him and tries to get his attention. Suddenly, Armor King kicks him in the stomach, grabs him, jumps high into the air, and piledrives him into the ground head first. After King's body hits the ground, Armor King looks at him for a few seconds before walking away. King regains his strength after a few seconds and gets up off of the ground. Then, King says (growls), "I know that move from somewhere."

A mysterious wrestler in a black jaguar mask and steel armor who disappeared after suddenly attacking Craig Marduk during The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5. His true identity remains a mystery...
Ending (Unofficial Synopsis)
Armor King's ending is in two parts. The first part is where he's in a bathroom, looking at a picture of himself and his older brother before the next match. The second part is a continuation from Marduk's. Confronting both Marduk and Armor King, King asks for Armor King's identity. Armor King asserts himself as "Armor King", but Marduk retorts that he had personally killed "Armor King". Despite this "Armor King" states that he is Armor King, but so was his murdered brother. As both King and Marduk brace themselves, Armor King points at Marduk, saying, "I can never forgive you!"

  • In the "Power is Everything" trailer, Armor King is shown confronting Marduk and King in what appears to be a graveyard (at 0:57 - 0:59); this is actually his ending.

  • He and Jin Kazama are the only characters that have two parts to their endings.
  • Armor King's first two opponents in Scenario Campaign's "Arena" mode are Bryan Fury and Kazuya Mishima.
