Kazuya Mishima is one of the playable and most popular characters from the Tekken fighting game series by Namco.

He debuted in the first Tekken (1994) and returned in every numbers Tekken game with the exception of Tekken 3 (1997). In Tekken 2 (1995) he is a boss character and has to be unlocked to become playable. He returned as a playable character in Tekken Tag Tournament  (1999) and became one of the main characters again since Tekken 4 (2001).

Kazuya Mishima is the son of Heihachi Mishima, the main antagonist and boss of the first Tekken, he continued to have battles and even wars with him and also his son Jin Kazama until the events of Tekken 7: Fatal Retribution (2017) which concluded the story about the Mishima family.  

Like Jin Kazama, he can change into a “Devil” form.
