How do you pronounce his name? This is important to know

Update: Fahkumram is now available to download on PS4, Xbox One and PC in Tekken 7 as part of the game's third season pass. He can also be purchased separately for $5.99 while his new stage 'Cave of Enlightenment' can be purchased for $2.99. Original story follows.

Fahkumram will become available as a DLC fighter in Tekken 7 tomorrow, March 24. He's the final challenger that's part of the Season Pass 3 package. For $24.99, players will gain access to Zafina, Leroy, Ganryu, and the frame data display along with Fahkumram and the Cave of Enlightenment stage.

Before his releases, there are a few things that might be worth understanding. Perhaps most importantly, how exactly do you pronounce his name?

Based on the trailer, it should sound like "Fa-kum-rom." It almost sounds like the word "fulcrum" with "rom" added at the end. You'll want to be careful pronouncing this fighter's name correctly as it could come across as an insult to someone's relative if misheard or misspoken... as the meme suggests.

Like Sagat from the Street Fighter series, Fahkumram is a very tall fighter (7'5) who hails from Thailand. As a result, he is a practitioner of the Muay Thai fighting style.

The word "fahkumram" is actually Thai for "roaring sky." It's essentially another word for "thunder."

Fahkumram's motivation in Tekken 7 is his unnamed wife and daughter. He's supposedly not a fan of cheating, corrupt officials, criminals, being incarcerated, and (ironically) lightning.

In preparation for Fahkumram's release, the version 3.30 is providing some balance adjustments to the game.
