Ogre is a final boss character from the Tekken franchise, who first appeared in Tekken 3. His subsequent appearances are in tag-team fighting games such as Street Fighter X Tekken and Tekken TAG Tournament.
Ogre is known as the God of Fighting. A Native American legend states that Ogre is a war weapon which creatures from outer space left on Earth in ancient times. Ogre can understand entire structures of all living or artificial beings, allowing him to absorb them, making him stronger. Heihachi is after Ogre in order to combine its DNA with the Devil Gene and use it on himself. He sent his Tekken Force to investigate the ruins of Mexico where Ogre was sleeping. The bio-weapon then awoke and obliterated the team. He then wandered Earth looking for strong souls to absorb and attacked various martial arts masters in the world, including Baek Doo San, the original King from Tekken 1 and 2 (who was killed), and Jun Kazama. Heihachi then set up the third King of Iron Fist tournament to lure Ogre and his grandson, Jun's son Jin, also entered to seek vengeance. Baek's student Hwoarang also wanted vengeance, as did the second King who idolized the original King. Yoshimitsu and Dr. Geppetto Boskonovitch were also after Ogre to use his blood to cure Dr. Boskonovitch's daughter.
Ogre is unlocked as a playable character in Tekken 3 when you beaten the game 8 times. He either absorbs Heihachi Mishima or Jin Kazama depending on who you use)
In his non-canonical Tekken 3 ending, Ogre transforms into True Ogre and bursts through the temple that the final battle takes place in and destroys attacking helicopters. He is then seen breathing fire and roaring as the temple burns around him.
In the end, it was Paul Phoenix who made it to the final stage and managed to defeat Ogre. However, after his departure, Ogre morphed into his true form, True Ogre, and the tournament continued.
Tekken TAG Tournament
Ogre differs very little from his appearance in Tekken 3. His ending shows him readying to finish a defeated Jin Kazama, only to drop him when confronted by the game's final boss, Unknown. Ogre will not appear in Tekken TAG Tournament 2, but his more powerful form, True Ogre will.
