With Tekken 8 on the horizon, let’s get training for the new iron fist tournament with the current one. Here are the best Tekken 7 Characters for beginners to start off your training.
Don’t let the Tier List dictate you
First off, let us just say that you should not pick your character based on the current tier list.
You should not worry about any tier list unless you want to play competitively, and even then, you should only worry about it at the higher levels.
You should pick, first and foremost, whoever you like the look of the most.
If you want to give Kuma a spin, then don’t let us or anyone else tell you otherwise. The aim of the game foremost is to have fun, and if you wish to pick up a complicated character like Geese or a low tier like Gigas, then by all means.
To get the hang of things quicker and start winning rounds, here are the best characters to begin learning with.

Best Tekken 7 Characters to start learning
Let’s start with the best Tekken 7 characters to start learning. Here are our two recommendations!
Mishimas are the father-son duo of Tekken 7, and we will start with them!
From the heroic protagonist to the literal embodiment of the devil, Kazuya has been in almost every Tekken release bar his absence in 3.
Kazuya is the player I always recommend to new players on the spot because of his accessible moveset, strong combo potential, and transferable playstyle.
He is the easiest of the Machimas to get into by far, as he has no stances to muck about with rather than just straightforward hard-hitting moves.
Despite his age, Heihachi is and has always been one of the strongest characters, both in lore and gameplay.
Focusing more on juggling and uppercuts than his son Kazuya, players can learn the fundamentals of Tekken mechanics while also dealing heavy damage.
I put the father and son close together as learning either one, you can easily transition over to the other.
Speed focus Tekken 7 Characters
Now, it is time for the speed focus Tekken 7 characters for beginners. Here is two of the best picks!
One of the most accessible and popular legacy characters, Marshall Law is all about speed and aggressiveness.
With many ways to begin combo strings and various mix-up potentials, Law is many a new player’s go-to pick for a reason.
Although not as strong as his heyday back in Tekken 6, Bob is still a great choice for new players to Tekken, given his dynamic and varied moves.
Bob’s damage potential is pretty high, and his combos, although hard to master, are easy to pick up and learn.
The Logitech Cloud Gaming Handheld offers advanced graphics and cloud gaming capabilities, meaning you can game whenever and wherever you like!
He rewards great movement and teaches players the importance of timing.
Mechanical Tekken 7 Characters for beginners
If you are looking for mechanical Tekken 7 characters for beginners, we have two recommendations for you!
The most unique fighter ever since his release back on Tekken 4, Steve is all about punching fast and punching hard.
As a character to the main, he is one of the hardest to get a feel for. However, for new players, given his dedicated dodge buttons where the kicks should be, he teaches new players the necessity of strafing.
Many players forget that Tekken is a 3d game, and Steve is perfect for reminding players that fact
An excellent choice for beginners, Lee teaches players that some characters rely on flow rather than execution.
With some of the best footsies in the game and amazing strings, Lee also shows us how to get used to rhythm-based characters, as the timing of certain moves is much more precise than other characters.
Of course, when in doubt, just machine gun kick your way to winning.
Lastly, it is time to unleash the greatest of all time. Here is our GOAT of Tekken 7 characters for beginners!
Featured in every Tekken game to date, Paul Phoenix is the go-to character for both beginners and professionals alike. He has both the simplest and some of the most hard-hitting moves in the game. He is very easy to pick up and play with his simple execution playstyle, yet, an absolute powerhouse of damage. Phoenix Smasher is the only move that matters and will get you far!
