Bryan Fury is a character in the Tekken fighting game series. Bryan first appeared in Tekken 3, and he has returned to all the other Tekken games after the third one.
Bryan Fury was an officer in the International Police Organization, but was killed in a shoot-out in Hong Kong. His corpse was transported to the laboratory of a scientist, known as Doctor Abel. Doctor Abel was able to effectively reanimate Bryan by installing cyborg parts in him, which made him much more powerful than he was. Dr. Abel revived Bryan with hopes that Bryan would be his agent in obtaining classified information on raising a cyborg-led army. Bryan enters The King of Iron Fist Tournament 3 in order to kill Yoshimitsu (who has close ties with Dr. Boskonovitch, who is Abel's rival), and then to capture Dr. Boskonovitch.
In Bryan's ending cinematic, we see Tekken Force members shooting at Bryan, but Bryan seems impervious to their gunfire. A tank emerges and fires at Bryan, but Bryan advances unscathed. He jumps onto the tank, tearing it apart, then tossing the top of the tank at the Tekken Force members who are attempting to escape. The game then cuts back to Bryan as he lets lose with his signature laugh.
After The King of Iron Fist Tournament 3, Bryan's creator, Dr. Abel, was recruited to the Mishima Zaibatsu as its top scientific adviser. When this occurred, Abel abandoned Bryan without a second thought. Two years later, Bryan can feel his body deteriorating, and soon realizes that his life will soon come to an end. Upon hearing rumors of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4, with the Mishima Zaibatsu being offered as the grand prize for the victor, Bryan decides to enter, figuring that if he wins the tournament and takes control of the Mishima Zaibatsu, he could then order Dr. Abel to install new parts in him, once again making him a deadly life form.
At the conclusion of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 4, Bryan wins the tournament (this part of his ending is non-canonical, as Heihachi was the actual victor of the Tournament), and finds Dr. Abel. "Your Still Alive?!" Abel exclaimed, in disbelief. With every last ounce of Bryan's energy, Bryan knocked Dr. Abel across the room, only to collapse immediately after. Bryan then wakes up in the care of Dr. Abel's rival, Dr. Boskonovitch, who points out that Yoshimitsu saved his life because Bryan was the key to defeating Dr. Abel's bio-weapon. Boskonovitch tells Bryan that he will become "reborn" in a new, mechanized body. Without a word, Bryan goes along with Dr. Boskonovitch's plan, and is then sedated.
Upon regaining consciousness after the events of his Tekken 4 ending, Bryan realizes that his body has remained unchanged. Dr. Boskonovitch explained to Bryan that his body contained many complex mechanisms that would require much more time to be fully understood and modified. However, he was able to install a perpetual power generator as an emergency measure. Bryan, intrigued with his new power generator, shoves Boskonovitch out of the way as he heads for the exit. Many Manji Clan (Yoshimitsu's clan) members attempt to stop him, but they are knocked out by Bryan, as he leaves the secret base of the Manji Clan behind him. It is not long before Bryan hears the announcement of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5, and decides to enter in order to test out his new perpetual power generator.
In Bryan's non-canonical ending cinematic, we see Bryan walking in a forest with a gattling gun in his hand. He uses his special cyborg vision to find an invisible Yoshimitsu (due to Bryan killing several members of the Manji clan, Yoshimitsu now seeks revenge), and immediately starts firing his gattling gun at him, but Yoshimitsu disappears again, only to appear in the air behind Bryan. When it seems Yoshimitsu is about to deliver a fatal blow to Bryan, h e is suddenly shot down, and we see Bryan aiming a pistol over his right shoulder. Bryan walks over to a fallen Yoshimitsu and with a grin, delivers a final shot.
Bryan entered The King of Iron Fist Tournament 5 in order to test his new generator's true power in battle. However, Yoshimitsu's repeated meddling did not allow Bryan to do this. A frustrated Bryan begins to destroy everything in sight after abandoning the tournament. Driven by rage, he joins random battlefields around the world, leveling everything in sight into rubble. However, he soon grows tired of destroying random battlefields, which is when he hears the news that The King of Iron Fist Tournament 6 has been announced, another perfect chance to test the generator's true powers.
In Bryan's ending cinematic we watch Bryan walk through a blown out, and utterly destroyed, battlefield carrying a gatling gun and rocket launcher. As he fires his gatling gun randomly into the distance, the camera zooms in showing a helicopter flying over head as Bryan fires a missile at it. The helicopter avoids the missile and turns to Bryan Fury, firing both its gatling gun and 2 missiles. Both missiles miss, making Bryan laugh as he nonchalantly tosses his gun to the side. He then walks up to, and begins eradicating from the ground, a Girder which he subsequently lines up and throws at the chopper, hitting it right below the blades. The helicopter then begins to fall to the ground deliberately towards Bryan, impacting and exploding in a massive fireball. We then see bryan walking away from the massive bang with nary a scar on him, as the cinematic ends we get a laugh from Bryan, as well as a smirk.
- Bryan's looks and overall storyline share similarities to that of Blade Runner character Roy Batty as portrayed by Rutger Hauer.
- Bryan Fury will laugh whenever specific moves are performed on him, e.g. Volcano Blasteror Nina Williams's Bad Habit.
- In Tekken 3 Bryan Fury replaced Bruce Irvin, so they share many similarities, such as moves, a single win animation (which Bryan no longer has from Tekken 4 and onwards), and an involvement with and hatred of Lei Wulong. Despite these facts, there is no confirmed relationship between the two in the storyline.
- Bryan Fury's storyline is similar to Jean-Claude Van Damme's 'Universal Soldier' where the two soldiers Luc Deveraux and Andrew Scott kill each other; They are later brought back to life as zombie soldiers. In the events of Tekken 3, Bryan Fury is killed by drug leaders and is brought back to life as a cyborg.
- He collects lighters.
