FATE|Arslan Ash might just be the best player in the world at competitive Tekken 7. With updates seemingly finished for Tekken 7, Arslan Ash recently released a tier list for the game.

On this particular tier list, all 51 characters that are playable in Tekken 7 have been divided up into one of five different groups — SS tier, S tier, A tier, B tier and C tier. It is interesting to note that the only two fighters that have been positioned in SS tier are actually guest characters that hail from other companies.

Here are 109 moves from Tekken that can also be found in Pokkén Tournament

Pokkén Tournament is typically seen as a spinoff of Tekken, except with Pokémon filling out its roster. That description doesn't exactly tell the whole story for Pokkén Tournament, but it's not entirely inaccurate either.

Regardless, every game from the Tekken series and Pokkén Tournament were both developed by Bandai Namco, so the existence of the similarities do make sense. With this in mind, it's not too surprising to hear that many moves that appear in Tekken have also made their way into the Pokémon spinoff. As such, Hi! Buff Gigas Please? has recently released a couple of videos that highlight moves that appear in both series.

Update: Voting has come to a close for our latest polls, so you can see who the community picked as their best / worst fighting game dads below.

In case you haven't looked at a calendar, today happens to be Father's Day, which a ton of fighting game characters probably have some complex and conflicted feelings about.

From Tekken to Dead or Alive, the genre has a unique mix of dads and adoptive father figures who are either the biggest dirtbags on Earth or surprisingly wholesome, but which among them could be considered the best of the best or being awful?

Soul Calibur's Taki, Dead or Alive's Kasumi, or Tekken's Asuka... which of Danielle Vedovelli's 3D fighter cosplays is best?

One of our favorite cosplayers is back on EventHubs as the lovely Danielle Vedovelli shows off a trio of cosplays that all come from fighting games that allow players to travel along the Z-axis.

Danielle becomes Taki from Soul Calibur, Kasumi from Dead or Alive, and Asuka from Tekken, the latter of which she's hardly recognizable in. All three of these 3D fighting females look gorgeous in these photos, but which is the best?

Fan mod adds content creator King Jae to the roster of Tekken 7

It seems like Bandai Namco has concluded their DLC for Tekken 7 with the release of Season 4's Kunimitsu and Lidia. The release of the Originals and Definitive Editions for Tekken 7 back in November of 2021 certainly cements this as being the case.

However, it's still technically possible for fans to add their ideas for characters into Tekken 7 via modding. As such, a mod that makes YouTube content creator King Jae into a playable fighter in Tekken 7 is now available for free on tekkenmods.com.

Street Fighter 5 takes a page out of Tekken 7's book with this hype slow-mo KO clip

One of the interesting gameplay features found in Tekken 7 that definitely brings the hype when it comes to highly competitive matches is its Super Slow-Mo mechanic. When the life bars are low and two attacks come into play simultaneously, the game will dramatically slow down during the attack animations to increase the suspense and put people on the edge of their seats to see who wins the exchange.

There really isn't any mechanic like this currently in Street Fighter 5, but under the right circumstances the same effect can be attained and be just as hype. In a recent clip from professional competitor Phenom, we see a slow down moment between Luke and Ken that definitely looks like it came right out of Tekken 7.
