Tekken 7: 10 Major Characters That May Not Be Returning
Kuma the bear is a massive fan favourite, existing as much beloved comic relief, with his strange rivalry with Paul Phoenix and unrequited love for Panda dominating most of his story arcs - although that could prove to be the exact reason he doesn't make it in. Tekken 7 is already proving to be a much darker game judging from trailers, akin in feel to Tekken 4. Kumas light heartedness may be out of place. He does have links to the Mishima storyline, being Heihachis pet and bodyguard, but because he has only ever taken this comedy role he is certainly not needed for the concluding chapters of the familys story. One definitely hopes that Kuma makes a return, because hes an over-animated bear fighting humans, and thats always great, but hes definitely at threat of finding himself excluded if the tone of the entire franchise changes.
