Creature of the ending[edit]

I know that you have questions about this... But if you use your mind, you can think that this is only the Devil inside Jin... eso no más...

But wait! How could that be the Devil within Jin when Dragunov's prologue mentions something about a body found in frozen tundra? And, if that was Jin's Devil, then how come in the background you see an unreverted Devil Jin behind Dragunov? -雷慈善X

My thoughts: The thing in the other tank is the anomalous object that was discovered below the permafrost. It was awakened by Devil Jin. I don't know why somebody would want to awaken it, though. Since Dragunov did not find Devil Jin, this creature could not have been awakened.


There is no possibility that the anomalous object is Unknown Character. The anomalous object was transported to a research facility, and there is no mention of Zafina's group (or anybody besides the anomalous object) being met. JunKazamaFan 19:25, 15 September 2007 (PDT)

That's very true. Do you think that's what Zafina saw when she opened those doors? I mean, if you look at it, as the doors opened, there were little things of ice floating around, and then you see the Unknown Character. (And if she's from India, why does that temple look Egyptian?) --Sakura 05:02, 16 September 2007 (PDT)
Yes, I think she saw the Unknown Character. About the "temple" question: I don't know. JunKazamaFan 05:21, 16 September 2007 (PDT)
Well, I guess I would have that reaction if I saw I giant monster when I opened really huge doors, too. --Rai
So would I. Who wouldn't? JunKazamaFan 05:40, 16 September 2007 (PDT)
Yeah. --RaiJinX
Okay, rollback or not, I will rewrite this: I really think the creature in the end is not Azazel nor Devil (or Devil Kazuya), because we can see its silhuette from 0:43 to 0:45 and doesn't look like them: it just looks like Jinpachi. It has the bald head, the beard and all the rest. For this reason I'll add the theory, of course leaving unchanged the rest.--KombatGod 14:23, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Dragunov's name misspelled[edit]

I noticed that Dragunov's name was spelled "Dragnov" in a Tekken 6 video ([1]). I'm adding it to the article, as I think it should be noted. I don't know if, for whatever reason, they are changing it to "Dragnov", or if they misspelled it. I'm just bringing this to everyone's attention.

Well, since it's also spelled "Dragnov" on a Tekken 6 poster ([2]), I guess the former reason is the reason.

*ahem*. Seeing that the arcade is still a beta-version, it's likely to be a screw-up on the translator's side. Also, what you linked to is a magazine scan, not a poster.

I looked at his Tekken-Official profile image shortly after I posted that. So, I was getting confused. That's probably it. I find it hard to believe that Namco would misspell the name of one of their characters. Yes, that's right. It doesn't even look like a poster, so I don't know why I said that. Sorry. My bad.

Well, on YouTube, bzcharkl told me that it has been changed to "Dragunov" in the international version of Tekken 6, and that "Dragnov" was a translation error ([3]). I'm glad that it's been fixed!

Dragunov's silence[edit]

My theory of Dragunov's silence is that he can only speak Russian and because others can't, he prefers to remain silent.


I beg to differ that based on what little information there is concerning his likes and dislikes, that Dragunov can really be considered some one who dislikes peace, and only fights for destruction. Taking the military service he's in seriously, as you would a regular soldier, colonel, general, private, it doesn't matter. Each had joined a military duty for the sole purpose of protecting ones country and self. Sure there may be some who enjoy destroying things, and yes, as long as it deals with the bad side. That being said, you could say Dragunov [fights] For peace in Russia and does enjoy destroying those he's told to, including what ever threat is going on in his country. Such as Kazuya (which happens to be 'bad.') Along with Jin, who is messing up the world with their war(s). I've studied military figures and military services for most of my life, and he sounds like the good guy who likes to see his enemies suffer. Or perhaps like Hannibal Lector, he did brutal things only to his enemies while still remaining good; how ever misunderstood. I think it's safe to say from the gameline and what happens in it, that Dragunov can be said to be a good guy. His trophy in Tekken 6 specifically states 'Friend or Foe?' Coincidence, maybe. I prefer to say it's a hint. Any alliance whose purpose is not the intention to wage war is senseless and useless. -A. H . 18:05, 20 January 2011 (UTC)Gunji

While I agree with that there's not enough evidence pointing to that he dislikes peace, I would say that the rest of your arguments are too hypothetical to be of any use. One part is too generalizing; while some may join out of patriotic duty, it is by no means all who do so. Many join not to protect themselves, but to destroy the enemies (the protection being secondary), as could well have been the case with Dragunov, given his personality. Looking away from Dragunov, many join the military not out of choice, but because it's mandatory to serve for a year.
So yes, you could say Dragunov fights for peace, but you also could say that he's a cold blooded killer who uses being in the military as an excuse to sate his desires for murder. You could say tons of stuff, but without anything to support it, it's pretty much worthless conjecture.
So no, it wouldn't really be safe to say anything. "Friend or Foe?", which you yourself pointed out, actually says more about the ambiguity of his actions than it does of him being a good guy; you don't know if he'll help you out or try to kill you, he'll do either if it fits with his own agenda c: --Hecko 20:48, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
