Introduction

Miguel Caballero Rojo (ミゲル・カバジェロ・ロホ Migeru Kabajero Roho) was introduced in Tekken 6, along with Zafina, Leo, and Bob and has returned for all subsequent titles. He was referred to as "Manly Man" before his real name was confirmed.

Nothing much is known of Miguel yet, as he has only been featured in the last two recent Tekken games. He is a rather blood-thirsty and rebellious character, whose reckless nature can be seen as both his weakness and his strength. Miguel is depicted as an undisciplined Spaniard with a very intense passion for fighting, which often brought him into conflict with others. Despite being born in a conservative family, his wild and unruly nature made him the black sheep.

Despite his negative side, Miguel is shown to be capable of love, especially in the case of his sister, whom he grew to trust and treasure. However, his extreme over-protective concern for his sister made him consider killing his future brother-in-law, though he decides against it for the sake of her happiness.

Miguel has also been frequently described as the alpha male in the series due to his big, towering figure and his oppressive aura of anger and power. Most of his customization options feature the theme of manliness, like muscle shirts, unzipped leather coats, and facial hair, and his outfits prominently feature his muscular and chiseled figure. Making use of his brutal strength and raw muscle-power, he brawls his way out of any fight. His self made "style", consisting of no-holds-barred, underhanded techniques such as brutal body checks, vicious headbutts, crushing hay makers and splitting leg swipes, confuses and disorients opponents with wild, powerful blows.

Gameplay

NAMCO stated that Miguel has no formal martial arts training and that he does not use or follow any formal style or discipline. Instead, he brawls his way out of any fight. His moves consist of no-holds-barred, underhanded techniques such as crushing hay makers, vicious headbutts, brutal body checks and splitting leg swipes. It has also been confirmed that Miguel has a special stance. One of his stances is called "Savage Stance". Some of the commands for Miguel's moves are "1,2,4", "f,f+2", "d/f+1,1~F (goes into "Savage Stance")", "("Savage Stance") b+1,2", "FC d/f+2", and "d/f+1+2". The command for Miguel's unblockable move is "f+3+4~F". For this move, Miguel walks towards his opponent slowly while putting a hand over his mouth and laughing (this is one of Miguel's taunt moves). Then, Miguel performs a quick downwards punch with the hand that he used to cover his mouth with. This move is a one hit KO if it hits unhindered, and takes away 75% of health bar if hit as it connects .

Story

Prologue (In-Game Text)
Miguel lived his life as a lone wolf and detested the idea of answering to anyone. Despite being born into a conservative family, his wild and unruly nature made him a black sheep in the family. The discord between Miguel and his parents caused him to run away at the age of 15 and take residence at a bar owned by an acquaintance.
In spite of his family dysfunction, Miguel kept in contact with his younger sister, who he grew to trust and treasure. On the darker side, Miguel’s over-protective concern for his sister was extreme... He almost wanted to kill her boyfriend when he heard the news that they were to be married. On the day of the marriage, Miguel was unable and unwilling to stand with his parents and participate in the service. Instead, he watched from outside the church. Looking around, Miguel noticed the sky was blue as far as the eye could see and the planes overhead seemed to be a serene part of the festivities. Then suddenly, a blast of intense heat engulfed the area. Miguel was knocked back and sustained intense pain throughout his body, but rushed to the church to search for his sister.
When he found her, her dress was stained crimson red and air no longer filled her lungs. Miguel's screams echoed through the smoldering rubble that was once the church. After hearing that the aerial attack had been the work of the Mishima Zaibatsu, Miguel gave-in to dark thoughts, loathing and hatred, and swore revenge upon Jin Kazama.
Ending, "An Angry Wolf" (Unofficial Synopsis)
Miguel is shown running towards Jin Kazama. The Tekken Force stalls Miguel, but he defeats every member that stood in his way. Jin Kazama takes off in a helicopter; Miguel tries to grab onto the helicopter but unfortunately falls and screams in agony as Jin escapes.
Scenario Campaign (Unofficial Synopsis)
In the Scenario Campaign, Miguel is a boss at the South Bay Warehouse Area. Also, in this mode, Miguel, Baek Doo San, and Hwoarang lead a "Resistance" to fight against Jin and the Mishima Zaibatsu.

Trivia

  • In "Arena" mode, Kazuya Mishima becomes his sub-boss, rather than Jin.
  • Miguel is the only English speaking character who has his lines subtitled in the English version of the game.
  • In the official Arcade opening movie, the church that Miguel's sister was supposed to get married at explodes as the church bell rings. Miguel holds his sister, who is now dead, in his hands. Miguel looks up and screams in agony as the camera zooms out, showing the church's remains.
  • Miguel can be customized to look like the following: John Rambo from the Rambo film series (Shirtless) and (Camo tank-top), El Mariachi (Antonio Banderas) from El Mariachi ([2]) and Dante (or Nero to others) from the Devil May Cry series ([3]).
  • His first Item move shows him hitting his opponent with a guitar while the second allows him to fire a pistol

Story (Official Website)

After losing his sister in an airstrike ordered by the Mishima Zaibatsu under the direction of Jin Kazama, Miguel Caballero Rojo devoted his life to seeking revenge. However, when Jin suddenly vanishes without a trace, Miguel's life purpose disappears along with him.

From that point forward, Miguel began to wander like a specter from battle-torn town to battle-torn town. One day, as he ambled through rows of dilapidated buildings, he stumbled across a strangely familiar hooded man. There in front of him was none other than his sworn enemy, Jin.

Consumed by both euphoria and rage, Miguel becomes frenzied and goes in for the kill.

Ending

Miguel defeats Jin and tells Jin of his sister's death to a Mishima Zaibatsu raid. Jin, then proceeds to beat down of the fallen Jin.

After multiple blows, Jin simply asks that Miguel just kill him but Miguel decides to hold back on the final blow.

Miguel then tells Jin that he hasn't suffered enough to die. He then tells Jin to fill himself once more with hope, and only then will Miguel appear to kill him as if he was nothing, much like his sister's demise.

Trivia

  • If Miguel's Rage Art hits one of the robotic characters like Jack-7 or Alisa, then the effects will show a screen breaking down and getting more static rather than the pulses for the other characters.

Story (From Wii U Edition)

Despite being born to a strict family, Miguel was always brash and eager to start a fight, and so he left home at the age of 15. The only one Miguel could trust was his younger sister, who cared for him and met him in secret, away from their parents. On the day of his sister's wedding, an aerial attack from planes flying over the church took her life, leaving her dress stained with fresh blood... After learning that the aerial attack had been the work of the Mishima Zaibatsu, Miguel swore to take revenge upon Jin Kazama[1].

Ending

Miguel is seen beating up various thugs at once in an alleyway. As he defeats two, he corners the last one intending to give him a beating as well. However, a girl appears and rushes to the side of the last thug, holding him, as to shield him from, while glaring at, Miguel. Miguel looks into the girl's eyes and sees resemblances between her and his sister, bringing back memories of when his sister was killed (the same scene that was played in Tekken 6's opening), causing him to show mercy and release his grip on the thug's wrist. Miguel then turns around and stammers a few feet before kicking the floor in frustration.


Trivia

  • The reason that Miguel wears a new outfit is because Katsuhiro Harada himself disliked the idea that Miguel wears a "cliché" matador suit. In fact, many Spanish fans criticized this point of the character, to which Harada himself apologized, and promised that in the new Tekken game, Miguel will wear something more "normal" ([4]) and ([5]) (in spanish).
  • In the official Arcade opening movie, Miguel is shown teaming up with Feng, who is fighting the younger Heihachi Mishima. Alisa, presumably Heihachi's partner, appears and beats Miguel and Feng.
  • His item move has him pull out a pipe and use it to hit the opponent. His new outfit's item move has him pull out a guitar case with a gun inside and proceeds to shoot the opponent.
  • He has a special tag throw with Kazuya Mishima. He will throw the opponent to Kazuya (Performing "Pas so") Allowing Kazuya to perform "Stone head".
  • He has a special tag throw with Bob. He will pull the opponent close and elbow their back and knee them in the gut twice (Performing "Exciter") and Bob will come in and knock the opponent to the ground with his belly and jump full weight onto his/her back.
