Roger is the name of a playable character in the Tekken fighting game series. He is one of three boxing kangaroos and father of Roger Jr.

The original Roger (who first appeared in Tekken 2) is a genetically engineered kangaroo with the ability to fight (as well as be uppercutted through roofs). Roger Jr., his son, replaces the original Roger from Tekken 5 onwards.

History Edit

Pre-Tekken 2Edit

Kazuya Mishima took over the Mishima Zaibatsu from his father Heihachi. The Zaibatsu became more corrupt than ever under Kazuya's leadership and engaged in many illegal activities such as assassination, extortion, drug dealing and the smuggling of species. Kazuya also recruited Doctor Bosconovitch to work for him. One of the projects he was commanded to work on was creating genetically engineered creatures. Through Boskonovitch, modified animals were created with DNA samples. Roger was created from Kangaroo DNA, whereas Alex was created using DNA from Dromaeosaurid fossil samples.

Tekken 2 Edit

Kazuya thought that Roger and Alex were worthless creations and wanted to kill them. However, Roger and Alex managed to escape. They then met Armor King, who taught them how to wrestle. Both Alex and Roger enter to fight in the second Iron Fist Tournament.

Jun Kazama, a member of the wildlife protection organization WWWC, infiltrates the second Iron Fist Tournament to arrest Kazuya, who is smuggling and experimenting on endangered species. She found Roger and Alex and quickly arranged for them to live out their lives in Australia, where they would be safe.

Tekken 5Edit

Tekken 5 Roger Jr. Ending

Prologue: 20 years later, Roger was kidnapped and taken away. Roger Jr. and his mother joined The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 to find Roger.

Ending Description: After a long struggle, they find him. But they soon discover that Roger was living the easy life, unconcerned about his family and/or fatherly responsibilities. Roger Jr. became shocked and angered at the sight of seeing his dad relaxing while Roger Jr. and his mother were worried sick about him and vengefully uppercuts him through the roof.

Tekken 6Edit

Prologue: After the tournament, life became hard for Roger Jr. and his mother. Shortly thereafter, The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 was announced, and Roger Jr. and his mother decided to join the tournament in search of victory and financial security.

Tekken 6 Roger Jr. Ending

Ending Description: Roger is teaching Roger Jr. boxing moves and bonding with his son, when all of a sudden, his wife comes in and confronts Roger with a picture of him with other female kangaroos. As a result, she uppercuts him up through the roof. The screen ends with Roger Jr. gazing in confusion at what had just happened. Throughout the whole ending, canned laughter can be heard.

Other appearancesEdit

Tekken Tag TournamentEdit

Roger appeared as a playable character in Tekken Tag Tournament where he once again shares a character slot with Alex. This is the original Roger's last appearance as a playable character in a Tekken game.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2Edit

Though Roger himself did not appear playable in the sequel to Tekken Tag, Roger Jr.'s ending in said game was mainly based on his father, Roger.

Ending Description: Roger comes home with flowers but before going inside, he peeks in and sees his wife, son and Alex eating breakfast. Roger sees that everyone is happier without him. He then remembers both times he was uppercutted by his wife and son. He punches himself in the head for being so selfish and not being there for them.

All of a sudden, Alex busts the front door open, slamming Roger behind. His wife comes out and looks to see Alex playing with Roger Jr. out in the field. She looks down and sees the flowers and note from Roger. She reads it and then eagerly looks around for him, but sadly, Roger is still smashed behind the door.

  • Kazuya Mishima - Kazuya ordered Dr. Bosconovitch to create Roger.
  • Doctor Boskonovitch - His creator.
  • Armor King I - He taught Roger (as well as Alex) Commando Wrestling sometime before or during Tekken 2, hence why both Roger and Alex share a lot of his moveset.

  • Kuma - His friend.
  • Roger Jr. - His son.
