Prologue (In-Game Text)
As the former charismatic leader of the Tekken Force, Lars staged an uprising from within the Mishima Zaibatsu. Now he is determined to destroy Pandora to prevent any imminent war between the Mishima Zaibatsu and Shadaloo.
Lars: We can't allow Pandora's Box to fall into anyone's hands. Even if that means destroying it.
Alisa: At your service.
In order to prevent both organizations from obtaining Pandora's Box, Lars calls upon Alisa Boskonovitch to aid him in the mission.
Lars: Watch yourself, Alisa, we're heading into hostile territory.
As Lars is walking he notices and catches a wobbling Alisa, who informs him that her battery was now low and needed to recharge. Suddenly Lars sees Blanka producing electrical charges and asks him for help, but Blanka angrily calls Lars a stranger and thinks Lars is a bad man. Alisa and Lars now decide to beat him and Sakura first before recharging Alisa.
Lars and Alisa find Pandora. Lars attempts to damage the box by hitting it but fails to even scratch it. Alisa also attempts by throwing her head and detonating it at the box, successfully destroying. This leaves a confused Lars to say "Mission Accomplished".

- Lars, in recent times, has a meme of his own starting at Tekken Tag Tournament 2's release which was "#BuffLars".

This led to a surge of fans and players jokingly requesting for Lars to be buffed to absurd levels in future installments.
