|~ Azazel's introduction.|
|“||I exist in a higher plane than your earthly laws, now no one can stop me!||„|
Azazel is one of the main antagonists (along with Jin Kazama) in Tekken 6/Tekken 6BR. Although he was previously unnamed, this character was confirmed to be named "Azazel" on November 26, 2007.He is the Overarching antagonist of the Tekken franchise as he was the origin of the Devil Gene.
He was voiced by Richard Epcar.
While little is known about Azazel's history, he is known as the ultimate evil that will awaken when "two evil stars" clash in battle. Despite the efforts of many, Azazel is ultimately awoken as a result of the overflow of negative energy produced by Jin Kazama and Kazuya Mishima throwing the world into chaos in order to awaken and destroy him. Once awake, Azazel and his demons face the former Tekken Force leader and rebel leader Lars Alexandersson and Raven in battle which they lose. Azazel then taunts Lars and reveals that he is known as the "Rectifier of All Things", he was created as a result of the sins of mankind, and the time has come for him to destroy humanity so that they can rule, but being too injured to continue the battle, he apparently self-destructs.
However, this is later revealed to have been a ruse in order to gather more strength. After Jin and Lars fight outside the temple, during which Jin fully explains his motives to Lars, Azazel bursts out from the ground underneath them, stronger than ever before. Jin, however, powers up with the Devil Gene and approaches Azazel, who fires countless beams of energy at Jin, only for them to be deflected away. Without warning, Jin punches his fist straight through Azazel's chest and the two of them plummet into the abyss below. The outcome of the battle is not shown, but it can be safely assumed that Azazel has been destroyed once and for all. In tekken 7 it’s revealed that Azazel survived and is sealed within Zafina
Azazel is not human, rather a massive creature, roughly twice as tall, and thrice as thick (not including its tail) as an average size Tekken character and is restrained by ice and chains. Due to its size, Azazel cannot be thrown but can throw its opponent. Despite this however, Azazel can be juggled.
Azazel has the ability to summon boulders or rock columns from the ground (which it uses to attack its opponent), summon ice scarabs which it also uses to attack its opponent. Azazel also has the ability to curl up in a ball and attack its opponents. His move set bears some resemblances to previous Tekken boss characters, such as his stun attack (which is almost identical to Jinpachi Mishima's), the ability to fire lasers (similar to Devil, Angel and Devil Jin's laser attacks).
- Crystal Blades - Azazel can summon 4 up to 5 blades from his left arm.
- Hellfire Blast - He can shoot lasers from his eyes. However it was bigger and dealt more damage than the Devil's.
