Azazel made his debut in Tekken 6 as the primary antagonist. He was most likely named after the famed demon in Judeo-Christian mythology. Little is known about Azazel's history, other than that he is the embodiment of the ultimate evil guarded in a tomb by Zafina, set to be released after the clash of "two evil stars".

Azazel looks much like the Egyptian god Set, with blue-gray skin, a large, spiked tail used for attacking, and huge spikes of ice/crystal growing out of his forearms. He also wears an Egyptian ceremonial headdress and loincloth.

Like many supernatural entities before him, Azazel appears to have the advantage of superpowered abilities over his opponents. These include a powerful stun attack (similar to Jinpachi Mishima), and eye lasers. He also has the ability to summon boulders from the ground and set them on his opponents. He can also summon scarabs made of ice to attack opponents and parts of his body get destroyed after taking too much damage.

In Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion, there exists a golden version of Azazel. Currently, it is up to speculation on how players can get to it. Its moves appear to remain the same, but Gold Azazel is reportedly stronger. The reward for defeating him is 20,000 G.

Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion


Page Updated:  June 6th, 2019

The Tekken series hasn't seen a "monster" design since the likes of True Ogre in Tekken 3/Tekken Tag, so I guess the designers figured it was about time for new monster in Tekken 6. I never really thought True Ogre fit into the Tekken series, but he was always fun to fight against at least... which is what I think the designers were going for. Azazel steps up as the new "monster boss" and is particularly fun to fight against, especially since you can extend your combos by a few hits once you launch him. :) I always have fun trying out new combos specifically for Azazel.

Aside from that, he's not that exciting of a design, but he's not a bad in terms of monster designs. On a side note, I hope a "newb" player wouldn't judge an awesome game like Tekken 6 by the boss alone... (as in, they beat Azazel and then say "that's it?, this game sucks.) lol. I'm sure they're out there. Noobs will be noobs after all.
