Kazuya Mishima (born December 11, 1958) is a fictional character in the Tekken fighting game series. Appearing originally as the main protagonist of the series, he would become much more of a villain in later games along with his demonic entity known as Devil.
His surname roughly translates to "Third Island". His given name means "one eight" in English. The name Kazuya is an anagram of the word Yakuza, which is the name of the Japanese mafia. Several of his customization options in Tekken 5 include Yakuza-styled attire.
