Tekken Tag Tournament
Tekken Tag Tournament 2
Prototype Jack (P. Jack for short) is a playable robot in the Tekken series of fighting games.
Prototype Jack was destroyed by Jack-2 in the second tournament, as examined on his Tekken 2 ending. P. Jack is the only Jack model who doesn't have plutonium blood (his is gasoline). P. Jack is also the only Jack robot that has competed in more than one tournament in the Tekken universe, despite of the fact that he has a large difference between his Tekken and Tekken 2 appearance. Compared to other Jack's series, Protoype Jack is added with rocket booster built in its leg. Jack internal support system can provide up to three "detonation" to the booster. Its arm also somewhat "loose" as it can spin his hand freely without wrist limitation.
The prototype for Jack, developed by Russia. Since it was just a step in the production, the skin was removed from the mecha. Prototype Jack (or P. Jack, for short) was built only for power, so his power capacity far surpasses that of the completed Jack. The tournament's sponsor, Heihachi Mishima, has entered P. Jack into the contest in order to face him against Jack.
After the first Rave War, the remains of the first Prototype Jack unit (a first-stage model of the final Jack model) were almost destroyed by Jack's rampaging combat abilities. Upon reactivation, P. Jack complained that his alter-ego had received a refit, and he repeated his plea until his fuel ran out. Now resting in Kazuya Mishima's laboratory, P. Jack was left untouched for months before a back-up fuel supply reactivated him, and once again he began his constant pleas for a new look. To quieten him, Kazuya gave his captured scientist, Doctor Boskonovitch, the task of remodeling the robot.
With a cunning memory change, the doctor managed to convince P. Jack that his new body afforded him superior protection to Jack's, despite it being only a hat and sunglasses. Kazuya is currently goading P. Jack to demand more programmed maneuvers in time for The King of Iron Fist Tournament 2. Having repeated his fighting moves over and over (to such an extent that the doctor disconnected P. Jack's voice box), P. Jack now feels his next encounter with Jack will have a much different conclusion.
Ending Description: Prototype Jack is traversing inside a tunnel and turn his leg booster on in a vertical opening. He comes out of the shadows and flies straight up into the sky. As he flies away, he explodes and three screws have fallen out to the ground.
Prototype Jack has appeared in Tekken Tag Tournament as a playable character.
In Tekken: The Motion Picture, three Prototype Jack robots are programmed to protect the labs in which Lee Chaolan and Heihachi Mishima had their test subjects hidden. There comes a point in time where the three Prototype Jacks and Jack-2, along with Lei Wulong, have a battle in the middle of the lab.
Prototype Jack appears as a playable character in TTT's sequel, Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Supporting the same look he received in the original Tekken 2 and Tekken Tag Tournament. He plays the same like Jack-6 while offering different moves that Jack-6 doesn't have.
Ending Description: A large Prototype Jack is being built, then comes along a Prototype Jack walking forward to it and then stares at it while the body of the stomach is opening. It enters into the stomach of the body and sits down, while pressing the button which activates the giant P. Jack to get ready to launch. He gets ready to launch with a countdown, while the other construction Prototype Jacks leave the perimeter. Just as the giant P. Jack launches, a construction Prototype Jack rushes in carrying a large screw, desperately waving to the pilot in an attempt to get it to abort the (incomplete) giant P. Jack's launch. However, the pilot misinterprets the worker's actions as a simple good-bye wave, and does a thumbs up. The construction Prototype Jacks are left to helplessly watch the giant P. Jack's launch. It then explodes high in the air, with three screws falling back into the hangar.
This is a reimagining of Prototype Jack's Tekken 2 ending. In the Tekken 2 ending, Prototype Jack walks in and gets ready to launch. He launches to the air and then three screws fall to the ground. You can also hear an explosion in the background while the screws are on the ground. The ending in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 tries to reimagine the same ending of Tekken 2 albeit in a different way, where the giant P. Jack is based off the one from Tekken 2. This is also the reason why he doesn't appear in any more Tekken games after Tekken 2 but appears in the non-canon Tag Tournament series.
Note: Despite the fact that Prototype Jack explodes in his original Tekken 2 ending, there are more than one Prototype Jack in his ending of Tekken Tag Tournament 2; probably because it is non-canon, more than one can appear than just one who appeared in Tekken 1 and returned in Tekken 2.
- In Tekken Tag Tournament 2, If you leave Prototype Jack alone for about 6 seconds, he will shut down and reboot himself.
