Mokujin is a playable character in the Tekken fighting game series by Namco. He debuted as one of the unlockable Mid-bosses in Tekken 3 (1997) and returned in Tekken Tag Tournament (1999), Tekken 5 (2005), Tekken 6 (2007) and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (2011) and in all updates and ports of the mentioned names. Mokujin did not return in Tekken 7 to the surprise of many fans of the mimic character.

He was also a boss character in Tekken Revolution (2012) an online only free2play game that was shutdown in 2017. In the crossover S-RPG Namco X-Capcom (2005) he appeared as a playable character and training dummy. 

Mokujin is made of wood and does not use any own fighting moves and special attacks, instead he mimics the moveset of the other characters and changes his moveset from round to round. 

There is an iron variation of him known as Tetsujin as well as a Golden unplayable version named Kinjin that appeared only in Tekken Revolution so far.
