hails from Russia and uses the fighting style of Combat Sambo. While conducting
a geological survey for the purpose of resource development, a peculiar
body was found beneath the endless frozen soil. The Military quickly dispatched
the Special Forces to quickly quarantine the area. They later relocated
the unknown body to their laboratory with total secrecy.
month later, the military headquarters responsible for investigating the
unknown body, thought of giving special orders to one man involved in the
excavation. A man named Dragunov, a member of the Special Forces, the very
symbol of fear on the battle, who has been dubbed the White God of Death
because of his overwhelming fighting prowess. Dragunov stood silently, nodding
his head in approval, as he received orders to go to Japan.
Dragunov received an order from Russian Military headquarters to sneak
into the King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 to capture an unconfirmed creature
known as Devil. Sergei infiltrated the tournament, but did not find the
long the activities of the Mishima Zaibatsu were causing unrest in Russia.
While Dragunov staged numerous intense battles to quell the unrest throughout
his motherland, he received an order from the Russian Military high command
to infiltrate The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 and smash the Mishima

Dragunov is an
unmistakable badass — which is a high compliment for a "newcomer" to
a series already filled with plenty of badasses (by the time of T5:DR). Dragunov's dark and mysterious
persona fits right in with Tekken and added to the excellence of T5:DR
as a game. Dragunov does justice to the brutal and effective martial art of Combat Sambo... more-so than
any other fighting game character I can think of (sorry Bayman,
close but no cigar.) It's also a martial art that perfectly compliments the 3D
engine of TEKKEN — like many real martial arts represented in the game.
On that note, some martial arts can only be appreciated properly in a 3D
fighting game... because, you know, real fighting is 3D. ;)
If you can't tell Dragunov has bad intentions by his awesomely creepy in-game
facial expressions (and in the amazing story art), his sadistic tendencies within his fighting style
& animations speak for themselves. He
isn't afraid to inflict SERIOUS pain upon his opponents, and does so without
the slightest hesitation. (My kind of fighting game character!) >:) Dragunov was updated generously
in the sequels, as he received lots of new animations and dynamic new counters A
great character to represent the complexity of Tekken!
