2. Mark Musashi
Kazuya Mishima Reprising his role from Street Fighter X Tekken: The Devil Within Musashi did a much better job of Kazuya than Dale did in the Tekken film. I would love to see him and Foo throw down.

Miguel Caballero Rojo Reprising the role from the film.
13. Emma Burgess
Actress | Metalhedz
Nina Williams not exactly the perfect Blonde bombshell. So she would have to dye her hair. But she is a British actress and is skilled in Jujitsu. She would probably be better at the Irish accent than the actresses from the original Tekken films.
Actress | Pumpkins
Anna Williams I've changed my actress for the Williams twins because I wanted actresses I knew could do an Irish accent. Maria is a British actress and Martial Artist. I personally know many British people can pull off the Irish accent.

22. Christine Ebadi
Stunts | Suicide Squad
Born in Iran, raised in Toronto, and daughter to two engineers. As a competitive gymnast, Christine undoubtedly knew what she wanted to be from the very young age of five; Superwoman. As she forges forth with her stunt and stunt acting career, she aims to metaphorically attain her dream.
Zafina Ebadi is a Canadian stunt woman of Iranian Descent. Zafina is born in the Middle East, lives in Egypt so this is the closest I can get. Most people misconceived Zafina as Indian and a practitiner of Kalaripayattu. It's likely her Assassin's art is based on the Syrian Hashshashin (the assassins creed kind) or as she is Egyptian she practices Tahtib.
23. Tim Man

Lars Alexandersson Lars is half Japanese half Swedish Man is half Chinese half Swedish so this is the closest we've got He's also a talented stunt man and martial artist.

Jackie was born Kong-sang Chan on April 7, 1954, on Hong Kong's famous ...
Lei Wulong Leo is based off on Chan. Considering that Lei is almost he same age as Kazuya (50s as of Tekken 6) Chan isn't too old for this *beep* Also it's very hard trying to find an East Asian stunt man/martial arts actor that is funny and resembles Lei without bing Jackie Chan.
26. Dave Bautista
Actor | Guardians of the Galaxy
David Michael Bautista, Jr. was born on January 18, 1969 in Washington, D.C., to Donna Raye (Mullins) and David Michael Bautista, a hairdresser. His father is Filipino, and his mother has Greek ancestry.

King II Mamoa isn't exactly a 6'7" Mexican luchador, but I felt him being native American and 6'4" is the best I can get for someone that rivals Bautista.
39. Brian Ho
Stunts | X-Men: Days of Future Past
Feng Wei initially I thought Feng was middle aged but he is in fact around his mid-20s-ish. If Ho can grow a pony tail then we've got the perfect guy.
40. Jawed El Berni
Stunts | Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
Jawed El Berni is an actor, director, stuntman, fight choreographer and martial artist.
Now based out of LA but born and raised in Paris, he discovered his love for martial arts and cinema while watching Bruce Lee's The Way of the Dragon as a child.It inspired him to begin taking karate at the age ...
Shaheen Shaheen is a new character making his debut in Tekken 7. He is a Saudi Arabian and his name is Persian/Iranian for Falcon. Jawed El Berni is a French stunt man and actor. I'm not sure what his ethnicity his but he has an Arabic Muslim name and it is likely he is North African like most French Muslims.

Claudio Zelocchi Claudio is an Italian character for Tekken. he does not practice a real martial art but it is rumoured that he is associated with the Devil Gene as his magical abilities hinted. Enzo is a handsome Italian actor and producer. While he is not a martial artist. he certainly looks the part of Claudio.
43. Jasmine Villegas
Actress | Threat Matrix
Her youthful ambition and undeniable talent have taken Jasmine into other creative arenas. She has been featured in print advertisements for Target National, Mary Kate and Ashley, American Girl, Levi's, Hilary Duff, Robinsons May, Macys, Mervyns, Girl Scouts, Sparklets Drinking Water, Kohls as well...
Josie Rizal. Josie Rizal is Tekken's first Filipino character. She practices Unarmed Eskrima and mixes it with Kickboxing. Due to her Filipina heritage it is likely her kickboxing is Sikaran (Filipino Kickboxing). Jasmine Villegas is not a martial artist but she is of Filipino descent and matches Josie's age and appearance. So she would require some training in the martial art.
44. Isabeli Fontana
Actress | Belíssima
Isabeli Fontana is a fashion model best known for her work as a Victoria's Secret lingerie model, her multiple appearances in the Pirelli calendar (2003, 2011,2012, 2013, 2015) and the 2003 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Her appearance in a Victoria's Secret catalog at age sixteen was ...
Katarina Alves. I was very unsure if Katarina was suppose to be White Brazilian or Pardo due to her tan skin could make her either (Some White Brazilians have a natural tan). Notably Katarina is known to have full plump lips and I thought that Brazilian Model Fontana (who is known for having such lips) would suit. She may not a stunt double as she is not Acrobatic (to my knowledge she isn't) but Alves is a Savateur (practitioner of Savate) and Jawed El Berni knows Savate and can easily teach her a few new tricks.
Actor | Game of Thrones
Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson is an Icelandic professional strongman, actor, and former professional basketball player.
On 31 January 2015, Björnsson beat a 1000-year-old record set by Orm Storolfsson at the World's Strongest Viking competition in Norway, where he carried a 10 m (33 ft) long 650 kg (1,430...
Gigas Not much is known about Gigas so I hope a 6'!0" tall Icelandic actor is a suitable choice for such a character.
46. Stella Angelova
Stunts | Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Stella Angelova is a World & Europe champion Rhythmic Gymnast from Bulgaria. She has won over 265 medals internationally for her country before the age of 16.

Emilie "Lily" De Rochefort. It was pointed out to me that Lily is about 5'8". So I needed to find a Blonde European actress who is capable of Lily's martial arts abilities and suits her height.
47. Guoli Zhang
Actor | Kangxi wei fu si fang ji
Wang Jinrei Not really sure who to pick for Wang but this actor is the first to come to mind.
Self | Ocean's Thirteen
Musashimaru was born on May 2, 1971 in Samoa as Fiamalu Penitani.
Ganryu Real life sumo Musashimaru is about 6'3" tall and is about the same build as Ganryu. The only big difference is that Musashimaru is of Tongan and Samoan descent. But he could get away with it.

Fourth child out of five siblings, soon they divorced when he was aged 3 and brought up at age 7 by his stepmother Ottillie Weinholdt who married his dad in ...
Jinpachi Mishima I wanted a Japanese actor who was at least 6'2" tall for the role and looked like they were at able to be aged over their 50s. Kimko is born in Japan but his ethnicity is Korean and Caucasian American. He is trained in Kung-Fu so this shouldn't be difficult for him.
50. Khotan Fernandez
Actor | Royal Pains
Ogre. Considering how much Ogre resemble Kotal Kahn and ancient Aztec gods. It makes sense to cast a tall Mexican actor for the role.
