Godhand, who's real name is Ken Mishima, is an ex-mercenary of the sinister Red Scorpion organization. Upon uncovering the true significance of the ancient ruins in regard to immortality, he severs his right arm as a means to leaving Red Scorpion, believing that his own plans for the ruins would make up for the sacrifice. Sharing some of what he knows with a powerful organization, he garners an ally that provides him with a new right arm along with the means to establish his own company dedicated to uncovering the secret of immortality. At the same time that he acquires a new right arm, he learns from his research teams that the EHRGEIZ stone may be the key to the ruins and the secret it holds. His growing ambition leads him to join the EHRGEIZ tournament in an attempt to gain possession of the weapon.

Godhand resembles both Kazuya Mishima and Jin Kazama who became quite popular at the time Ehrgeiz was released, right alongside Cloud Strife. Godhand's moveset even has quite a few Mishima-style attacks! Distant Great Uncle Ken Mishima who went off to the military? Is that you? lol. Along with Kazuya's trademark evil glare and Jin's hairstyle, this silver-haired badass also wears the trademark Mishima gloves. Interestingly, TEKKEN series producer Katsuhiro Harada confirmed on several occasions that Godhand is NOT canonically related to the dysfunctional Mishima family we know and love. -__- Ohh well.

Godhand has some pretty entertaining projectile attacks, including rocket punches and grenades. He has a decent moveset for Ehrgeiz, but he's clearly underdeveloped. Still... it would be epic fan service if Namco ever decided to obtain the rights for this character and add Godhand to a future TEKKEN game. Keep the PS1 memories alive!
