Trivia[edit]

  • Tekken's DLC Spirit Board is the first and only one so far to not feature a Legend-class support spirit.
    • Despite this, it still introduces a Legend-class Primary spirit with a new effect like with other DLC Spirit boards making it the first DLC Legend class Primary spirit to introduce a new effect.
  • In the console release of Tekken 7, several returning characters received new default outfits, with separate artworks depicting them in either their new or original attire. Of the characters represented as spirits with multiple artworks, only Panda and King use their new default outfits. Heihachi, Devil Jin, Xiaoyu, Paul, Kuma, and Asuka use their original outfits in their spirit artwork, and the rest (including Kazuya) only have artwork of their new outfit.
  • Kazuya Mishima, Nina Williams, and Yoshimitsu are the only Tekken spirits that do not use their artwork from Tekken 7. Kazuya uses his official Super Smash Bros. Ultimate render, Yoshimitsu uses his artwork from Tekken Tag Tournament 2, and Nina uses her artwork from the Blood Vengance movie.
    • Nina is the first spirit to use artwork from a movie. While Cloud (Advent Children) also debuted in a movie (Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children), he only uses his artwork from Ultimate.
  • Kazuya is the only fighter that has a fighter spirit sourced from another game for an alternate costume, but not for the default costume.
  • Coincidentally, the music used in Paul and Law's spirit battle is used in Tekken 2 as the theme of Lee Chaolan, a fighter who initially debuted as a clone of Law with some additional moves from Paul.
  • Much like Sephiroth's DLC spirit board, the spirit board uses non-default Miis for Heihachi Mishima and Ling Xiaoyu for their respective spirit battles. Heihachi's Mii matches the one used in promotional trailers [1], while Ling Xiaoyu simply uses Guest F, indistinguishable from the default female Mii.
    • Additionally, the Mii Gunners accompanying Nina Williams appear to reuse the Mii design used to represent Biggs from Barret's spirit battle, as no additional Mii data was added to the game besides Heihachi during this update.
  • Tekken characters Jun Kazama and Kazumi Mishima, despite appearing in the Mr. Sakurai Presents presentation for Kazuya, are not included as Spirits (or in any other capacity; the latter only gets a mention in the form of the "Kazumi/Heihachi" engraving on the floor of Mishima Dojo).
