True Ogre (also referred to simply as Ogre) is a fictional character and villain in the Tekken series. He is the final boss of Tekken 3 and the sub-boss of Tekken Tag Tournament 2. He is the final canonical transformation of Ancient Ogre.
He is more of a howling beast in this form as he loses his ability to speak and gradually roars, he simply seems to just attack and absorb those that come to confront him. Ironically in this form that True Ogre behaves like a wild beast, as shown on one of his throw moves and in his special continue screen where he is the boss character in Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
Ogre's second form stands not much taller than its first, but is hunched over to an extent. In this incarnation, he barely resembles a human, with a large frame, dark brown fur, a monstrous face, a tail, wings, horns and snakes in place of a left arm. All of the jewelry Ogre wore in his previous form disappear, save for one leg armlet. Also, in this form, the area surrounding him will dim to an eerie pitch black (in Tekken 3), or extremely dark (in the arcade version of Tekken Tag Tournament).
Ogre shows up and is defeated by Paul Phoenix. However, unknown to Paul, Ogre morphs into its true form and the tournament continues. Ogre eventually confronts Jin and they clash in battle. Jin emerges victorious and Ogre is defeated.
The plot details events that occur during the two month period between Tekken 4 and Tekken 5. After Jin leaves the Hon-Maru after the final battle in the King of Iron Fist Tournament 4, he hears rumours that his mother, Jun, is still alive at G Corporation. When Jin travels to their labs, he finds no trace of his mother, but instead discovers that G Corporation has either resurrected Ogre or found another one. In the ruins of an ancient temple beneath the labs, Jin battles Ogre once again. Ogre flees to a deeper part of the ruins with Jin in hot pursuit.
In the deeper ruins, Jin encounters a giant contraption that uses a large white orb to attack. After Jin destroys this, it is revealed that he has unwittingly broken the seal containing Ogre.
Jin battles True Ogre once again. Once it is defeated, it reveals yet another transformation. Despite its new advantages, Jin still triumphs, and destroys Ogre once and for all.
It is still debated whether the events in Devil Within are canon or not but it is generaly assumed not.
True Ogre appeared as a hidden character and his sub-boss is Devil.
Ending Description: Ogre transforms into True Ogre as a Devil Beam narrowly misses him, the culprit being Devil Kazuya. A battle ensues with both fighters dodging the other's attacks. Eventually, True Ogre floors Devil by pounding the ground and incinerates the helpless Devil before flying away.
Ogre appeared in his first form in the crossover fighting game Street Fighter X Tekken as a boss character counterpart to Street Fighter character Akuma. His second form is slightly referenced in parts of Ogre's moveset and super art but shown only in flames and disappear quite quickly. A full reference of this form is in one of Ogre's DLC outfits without wings.
Ogre (in his second form) appeared as a playable character, and also as a sub-boss, in Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
Ending Description: The ending is shown from the point-of-view of a cameraman trying to escape a burning city currently under attack by Ogre. Eventually, the cameraman encounters Ogre, coming quite close to the beast. While the cameraman escapes with his life, his camera is destroyed.
Ogre is the final boss in the Arcade mode of Tekken Revolution, retaining his appearance and moveset from Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
As of the Mokujin Rush update, players can now fight a special version of Ogre known as Gold Ogre, similar to Azazel from Tekken 6, except instead of having a point requirement it appears completely at random.
Gold Ogre produces a higher reward than regular Ogre, is around the same level as Mokujin, Tetsujin, and Kinjin, its AI is much harder than regular Ogre, and his moveset has been modified to make him more boss-like. Such examples being its air escape has been changed to a mid air teleport on hit and will either ram into the player or do a flame breath attack, causing a player to take caution when using a juggle on this version. In addition, many of its moves such as its Special Art are now faster, safer, and deal more damage than regular Ogre.
In Tekken Tag Tournament 2, his moveset is greatly improved. His moves may be slow, but are the longest reaching in the game (courtesy of his snake-arm) and very damaging. A main tool of Ogre is his throws: they're hard to break because his arms are big and weird looking.
Listed as "unknown", Ogre's fighting style is a combination of many fighting styles, presumably taken from the souls of defeated warriors. In this form, he also possesses the ability to fly and breathe fire.
