  2. wurm says:

    And btw jin is so high lol

    sorry duk

  3. wurm says:

    btw i’m so happy to see this post because i was getting sick and tired of looking at Cung Le’s crouch everytime…

  4. wurm says:

  5. Rip says:

    Why isn’t Law Top 4 anymore?!!?!?! lol

  6. UNCALVABLE says:

    Kuma is rank 35?? no way!!! lol XD

    -UNCALVABLE “LGT”-

  7. tekkenlover says:

    go bob hell yeah

  8. babibu says:

    agree with bob , kaz, and devil for super tier.
    but miguel as rank A is just wrong … he’s a bit predictable, but very strong and have one of best oki.
    kuma.. though low tier, but he’s very fun to use!

  9. Ol' Janx Spirit says:

    poor ling :-(

  10. paisley says:

    i never liked craig but this is embarrasing

  11. tekkenlover says:

    WOW HEY GUYS NOTICE THAT IN BOTH JAPAN AND KOREA BOB IN TOP RANK THAT SHOULD DEFINATELY TELL YOU HOW SPEACIAL, UNIQUE AND FUN IS BOB TO PLAY. EVENTHOUGH, THIS IS HIS FIRST APPERANCE. BOB MANAGE TO GAIN THE TRUST OF MANY PROFESSIONAL TEKKEN PLAYERS, THIS IS JUST AMAZING

    • just sayin says:

      they dont use him because they like him, hes a big fat ugly tub of lard that moves unrealistically fast. they use him because he is overly effective. (AKA OP) same with kaz, his damage output needs some nerfing.

  12. CSXLoser says:

    woh, when did feng wei get all the way to the top 10?

  13. wowwoweee says:

    what seriosly bob? bob sucks big time

  14. ranking says:

    New character ranking by Help Me (06/04/08)

    Characters at left are stronger than characters at left.
    Characters at right are weaker than characters at right.
    (This mostly applies to S rank. As rank decreases, order does not matter that much.)

    S rank – Kazuya, Bob, Lei, Devil Jin, Dragunov, Raven, Rojer Jr., Yoshimitsu, Heihachi, Law, Feng

    A rank – Leo, Jin, Miguel, Armor King, King, Nina, Bryan, Paul, Ling, Steve, Lili, Bruce, Wang, Marduc

    B rank – Baek, Christie/Eddy, Hwoarang, Jack, Lee, Zafina, Anna, Asuka, Ganryu

    C rank – Kuma/Panda

    • Pramod Raajan says:

      Hwoarang??>?
      HE IS THE DESTROYER!!!!! I f***** KAZUYA ,BOB , JIN AND ALL TOP TEN CHARACTER WITH HWOARANG,,,HE IS HARD TO master him BUT ONCE TRAINED,,,,HE IS THE NUCLEAR WEAPON!!!!!!

  15. tekkenlover says:

    wowwoweee how come you can judge bob when you havent even play him yet?

    • Bombignants says:

      look, I don’t care how fast/good bob is, he deserves to be hated just for the fact that he is grown up cartman (from south park) and therefore retarded.

      • hitlerwasright says:

        because everyone knows fat people are just cartman.

        even though he looks and acts nothing like cartman at all, he’s a grown up cartman.

        you’re fucking stupid.

    • vlad says:

      the heck is wrong with you man, look nobody cares, Bob is good to use for T6, and what’s with you holding a grudge against fat people?

  16. dragu girl says:

    Yay go Draggy and Kazuya. That’s the way games r played.

  17. zchikmhagnet says:

    can someone tell me why marduk is at the bottom?
    Thank you..

  18. IronTrigger says:

    Steve 24 ??? .. thts stupid

  19. aldrin says:

    i love what they wrote in the koren list.

  20. Fog9 says:

    LMAO…. roger in the top 10. who would have ever thought.
    CANT WAIT TO PLAY!!!

  21. MMT says:

    Hm, big difference in usage of Jacks, Koreans must not like robots as much as the Japanese people do then..

  22. zen says:

    Gay! Wonder why they don’t like Bryan.

  23. Dante Silver Mist says:

    damn… Lee is number 30? T_T

    well at least leo is 5th and lei is 11th

  24. 歩み名前 (heartnotsubasa) says:

    Where’s the other characters?

  25. Zack_Falcon says:

    Dragunov at no. 4!!!! Nice. He’s my favorite character.

    But seriously… In an all out fight, he usually loses to faster or stronger characters… And that’s a BIG List. This is more obvious when he gets cornered against a wall. His combos aren’t fast nor can they inflict great damage, making counter attacking difficult.

    I hope Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion removes some of his weaknesses.

    • Marcus says:

      Though most of dragonuv’s combos are slow a lot has priority over other characters. Try using the salvo combo (X,Y,X on the xbox and square, triangle, square on the ps3) that is one that works for me when i get backed up into a corner. or if the timing is right use the feint tackle thing where it looks like he is gonna tackle the other character and then roll to get out

  26. Ayumi Namae (heartnotsubasa) says:

    This isn’t what I see it.

  27. Drag player says:

    this seems pretty right now, people whos saying bob isnt good, GOD HES SO GOOD ALL HES MOVES ARE LIKE SUPER FAST, namco screwd up him in t6, thus in t6 br hes getting hit hard by the nerf stick,

    i just hope drag doesnt get nerfed much in BR

  28. shamras says:

    i cant blieve y bruce is among da top 10.he shud b among da top 3.he is da most ferocious player in terms of damage.

  29. Priskin says:

    Lol..Bob is awesome in T6..but still…nina..mid tier??? LOL ..oh well..

  30. UndeadNemesis says:

    Ranking as in most liked? From most expert to easiest? Crappiest to most corrupt in advantage? I don’t gellit. Yoshi 25? Pfft, the funk? If it’s in terms of most expert, they got it all wrong imo. Top 10 FTW.

  31. DXS says:

    Kazuya should be number one.

  32. ize says:

    this is madness im happy about kazuya but how is hwoarang so low ironic hes a korean character, this has to be opinion coz i destroy people with him

    • Pramod Raajan says:

      yes
      HE IS THE DESTROYER!!!!! I f***** KAZUYA ,BOB , JIN AND ALL TOP TEN CHARACTER WITH HWOARANG,,,HE IS HARD TO GET TRAINED BUT ONCE TRAINED,,,,HE IS THE NUCLEAR WEAPON!!!!!!

  33. yhyh says:

    devil jin should be 1st hes the best have u seen his combos if u dont agree u dnt no how to play him

  34. spartalive says:

    PLEASE,,,,,,,
    Is there any Pro Gamer or T6 specialist that can update and display a new list??

    Because those two former lists here had been displayed for more than a year. You know I could have make a baby inbetween.

    Please display the new TEKKEN 6 Tier List, updated end of september 2009!
    THKS

  35. marvin says:

    i guess the ranking is never accurate i saw korean playing tekken 6 br,,honestly they are not as good as any do believe,,promise,,and even the japanese,

  36. Wut says:

    What the hell…how the tiers work in tekken? I mean why putting two countries, and how Heichachi rised from bottom to a higher rank? I don’t get it

  37. Hellschild says:

    lili , lei , steve and asuka. I foucusing on this 4 characters at the moment

    XD

    most probably a fifth character will come by

  38. Hellschild says:

    lili rochefort ,steve fox, lei wulong, asuka kazama

    four characters above rock the core XD

    currently are my focuses

  39. Hellschild says:

    lili steve lei asuka ROCKS

  40. big jock says:

    Christie is the dogs bollocks. this list lies.

  41. HollowDefiance says:

    Meh, i can still kill all of those with Yoshimitsu or Kazuya. Remember kids, its the player, not the character. And if the list is in terms of useability, then yes, Yoshimitsu would be quite low, he’s difficult to master completely.

    • FlipBuilt says:

      “is the player, not the character,” I cant agree with you more.. Very true!

      You guys, dont pay attention to this list.. Its not how fast or damaging each character’s moves are, its how you use them.

  42. mr octopus says:

    Awesum, Kazuya is my favourite, then Devil Jin.
    Bob No.1! AWESUM! FATTYS RULE!

  43. Bombignants says:

    Yeah Kazuya ftw. Devil jin/jin seem to have been nurfed a bit for the console/BR…mau. On the otherhand Alisa is fun as hell, waitin on some pro BR Tier lists now

  44. Anerd says:

    this list means nothing. i play asuka, zafina, lili, christie and alisa. all of them are so unique and fun to play, not to mention pretty. btw really wanna play nina, she is so cool, but sooooooooo difficult to do a combo. it’s like twice effort as other characters.

  45. TekkenNerd says:

    I really enjoy Chrisite she is very fast and she is good to use against people that are bigger such as bob and dragaNOV

    Alisa has some crazy moves because she is bionic

    devil jin is awsome

  46. D says:

    where’s Lars? he didn’t make it on the list?

  47. larsalexendarsson says:

    what the….. where the hell is lars he should be on the top 5

  48. fyi says:

    For all your guys information, this was about tekken 6, not tekken 6 BR. this tier list no longer holds true. no lars or alisa, bob is now NOT overpowered, and the tiers have changd DRAMATICALLY.

  49. weazzyeffbabbey says:

    Then WTF is the new/latest tier list

  50. hornyman69 says:

    go kazuya! but 4 me i rank zafina as #1….

    #1 hottest

  51. MARK says:

    Why LAW is in rank 11 he is much stronger than roger jr.

  52. A-nig says:

    man ive been using eddy and christie for awhile and i kick ass with them. i dont like that theyre that far down. however the rest of the list looks fine

  53. carnage says:

    Im a total fan of asuka and I think she culd get the #1 spot 4 me anyday

  54. kw says:

    A kw is a beautiful and intelligent piece in your wardrobe. You can wear it at any time of year, depending on the materials handling in. Market Wrap-up today!,

  55. Raven-Lord says:

    GO raven hes awesome aaaaasss….. #7 all teh waaaaiiiiiyyyy

  56. charlie says:

    hwoarang was much better in t5 though some may disagree o found his moves combined better in t5 but he is slightly stronger and more versatile in t6 why is he so low ranked he should be top 12 atleast

    • Pramod Raajan says:

      Hwoarang??>?
      HE IS THE DESTROYER!!!!! I f***** KAZUYA ,BOB , JIN AND ALL TOP TEN CHARACTER WITH HWOARANG,,,HE IS HARD TO master him BUT ONCE TRAINED,,,,HE IS THE NUCLEAR WEAPON!!!!!!

  57. Wen Chong says:

    Why isn’t Nina beating bob.Nina is much stronger than bob and she is my favourite character.

  58. Dean says:

    I actually can’t believe this :O Hwoarang man!!! He’s my favourite :D

  59. junaid says:

    you guys relies only in your combos?? hell you call that skill men…
