Tekken Tag Tournament 2’s Team-Based “Rage” Synergy Detailed

While being more than a year away from its console release, players near selected arcades in the United States can make use of this allegiance chart to help further understand their characters and how it affects the game’s “Rage” mechanic.

Introduced in Tekken 6, a special ability referred to as “Netsu” or more commonly Rage occurs when a character loses a certain amount of health, allowing a damage boost until defeated. Rage returns in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 but has been modified to accommodate the tag team approach.

While still basically the same, Rage can now be activated with more or less health depleted, depending on the current character in play and their partner. Their approach seems to use the Tekken storyline to help build the foundation of the team Rage synergy. Japanese magazine Arcadia provided a full chart on what characters work best with Mokujin-Man of fan site Tekken Zaibatsu providing a streamlined translation of it. Here are some characters and their synergy tiers from the translated list.
