Need help with Devil Within?
Have you ever wanted to Devil Jin non-stop and not lose any energy? Well then, Smurfie is your savior. All right before I tell you my secret, you need to do a few things first, you have to beat Devil Within on Medium Stage, its difficult, but worth it. All you do once you have completed this is when they ask you for what difficulty level AFTER you win Devil Within on Medium mode, you press:
L2, select, R3( The right Analog stick down)

Alternate method of unlocking custom items
To perform this trick, you must first have completely beaten Devil Within at least once. Then when you start a new game (this trick also works if you use the Stage Select option), look for large red icons throughout the stages (they look like the tattoo on Jin's arm), usually in hard-to-reach areas. Each time you collect one and clear the entire stage (there are 8 in each stage), you will unlock a random custom item that you can normally buy for 500,000G. This allows you to save your G for other items.
Another way of Unlocking Devil Jin
Just keep playing everyone's stories till he appears. He will appear way soon before you get done with everyone's stories.
Back attacks
I find it easier to stun your opponent momentarily and come up from behind with a huge back attack.
Beat jinpachi
The easy way to beat him is to be Yoshimitsu, when he goes to shoot you press O + X and Down, and he can't get you, get up and attack him, Yoshimitsu has good throws and good attacks use low manji Kicks and use his confusing moves like Vaccum Dance and Death Copter (I found this hidden move in Tekken 2)

Beating jinpachi
This cheat is for players who knew aerial combos. When the battle starts, try to uppercut jinpachi to start your aerial combo. When you are almost done, don't finish your combo.(because you will throw him far away as most finishing moves will throw opponent far away) After that, he will fall to the ground and rolled sideways. Get near him and uppercut again. Repeat the tip above again. Works mostly.
Customize options
In Customize Mode, you can zoom in by pressing R1 and zoom out by pressing L1. Pressing both R2 and L2 resets the position of the fighter back to the default position. Moving the right analog stick rotates the fighter. And pressing the select button removes all of the menus so that you can get a better view of your fighter.
A good way not to get too much heat on you is to always duck by pressing the down button, this will usually leave the opponent for an attack.
Easy level ups in Arcade Mode
When playing arcade mode simply quit the match before you lose the second round and you won't get a demotion or lose any experience.
Easy Money
First you need 2 characters, One you're great with, another you're ok with.

Use you 2nd character and raise their rank to Dan1 or higher and choose a strong opponent, then lose on purpose. On continue choose your best fighter, win the match. You'll usually get 2,000+ per match. Just make sure you don't demote your character.
Easy money
You can earn money in arcade mode. If you play higher ranked CPU opponents, you will be rewarded with a higher amount of G after defeating the opponent. The money earned per fight in arcade mode ranges from 800G to about 4000G. In arcade mode, you will also encounter random roulettes which will multiply your winnings. You can also collect money while playing 'Devil Within' and are rewarded an extra 100,000G upon completing the quest. Additionally, the fastest way to get some money in the bank at first is to unlock the endings for all characters by completing story mode with everybody. This will get you 100,000G per character for the first time through only.

Easy Perfect with Devil Jin - By Sten
Trying to get Tekken Lord Rank with Devil Jin? I just found an interesting way of winning many battles.

Start out by doing d/f 1,2 then quickly do u/f O,O,O,O. after that use b/ 1+2 and HOLD it, the computer will walk forward not knowing what to do and you'll give them a powerful blast.

After they fly through the air run up and use 0~X (demon scissors). That should finish them off really quick.

note: Although you can use this tactic many times, over using this method in every match, like any other kind may result in you getting hit or worse.

Results may vary when using this against other humans.
Easy win on Jinpachi
For an easier way to beat Jinpachi pick Hwoarang and do his X (X4) kick combo on him. Or you could try O (X4)
Easy win with Law and Lee
Press Triangle(2), then use the Blind Elbow combo (press Triangle(4)) three or four times.

Use Lee's Acid Storm three times (Right, X(4), Circle).

Easy win with Raven
If you want to get Raven to a high level quickly or you need to defeat Story Mode with Raven you can just hit > then R1 for a powerful hit and wait til they get up. Right before they are able to attack, repeat the same thing.

I finished Story mode with Raven in 00:03:17
Easy Win: Asuka
1st pick to play a match as Asuka.
Once the match has started press and hold X and the directional button facing your opponent. Asula should start spinning and eventually kick your opponent. Now wait till your opponent starts to get back up.
Relaunch the attack until your enemy dies.
Extra Cutscene
If you fight with Yoshimitsu in Story Battle, you can get an extra cutscene when you fight with Raven. When you fight with Raven, lose the round and you'll get a funny cutscene.
Fast Money
If you want fast money on Tekken 5 or Tekken 6, simply do the following:

Pick a character that you're good with, but don't really care for customizing. Then move them up rank by rank until you get to something high like Warlord. Reset your character in customize, and work your way up again. Now you have all this money for other characters. Hope you enjoy!
Free Items
After completing Devil Within, play through it a second time. Various items will be scattered around for you to pick up for free.
Gaining ranks quickly
In order to gain ranks quickly you must play opponents of the same rank as you are or higher. When defeating CPU opponents of the same rank as your character, it usually only requires three to five wins to get a promotion. After your fight has ended in arcade mode, you can select one of three opponents with the D-pad. You cannot always select an opponent with the same rank, but do so when one is available; you will have your character rank maxed out quickly.

Get 2 costumes with Asuka
Buy a costume for Asuka Kazama for 500 000G. She gets a schoolgirl costume when you select her with triangle. If you press circle, she gets a black geisha costume.
get out of corner
When you are against the wall in a fight push the directional buttons back and up toward the wall and your player will run up the wall and perform either a backflip, kick or a punch to the opponent. repeatedly push the buttons if it doesn't work and it will. its useful sometimes. i dont believe anyone else knew that :-) take that to the bank
Get rich quick
To get money quick simply pick your highest ranked player. Once you have start fighting against another high ranked player. Try and lose the match. Once you have lost pick one of your low ranked characters and try and win.
You should get payed a lot extra for beating a higher ranked opponent.
Getting expensive items for free
You can get a number of the high priced items for free when you play the Devil Within mini-game a second time after you have already completed the quest. Various expensive items will be scattered around throughout the game.

Help For The Rolett
When the rolet spins and right when it stops quickly tap up or down and it will go the direction you want it to instantly if don't correctly
Jinpachi's movie
To unlock Jinpachi's movie in Theater mode, you have to lose to him and get a game over using any character in Story Battle mode
Kill a Frog
In the Secret Garden Stage. If you look closly at the ground some where you will notice there is a Frog. If you or your opponent gets knocked in the air and lands on the frog it while die and its angel will float upward.
Like taking candy from a baby...
I am a big fan of the Tekken series, and have been playing it for years and i am very good at it...To be good at Tekken you must understand the basic moves from the 1st one cause the 1st one forms the basis for the other versions. Anyways...I have almost all my fighters at Tekken Lord mode and got there very quickly, but the quickest with Paul Phoenix. Here's how...When the announcer says "fight"...press (down + square and then triangle) for a 2 hit combo, but hold triangle in cause there are 2 versions of this move...1 where u just press triangle and 1 where u hold triangle in for a delayed but more powerful shot which every Tekken Lord will block and be sent sliding along the floor with the sheer force of the punch. This is a good thing because as soon as they get hit backwards while blocking, you press (back + square and triangle together) to execute Paul's super unblockable shot. Your opponent will 90% of the time walk right in it leaving them with very little life left. Under game options you can turn guard damage "on" so that you can easily finish the opponent off after delivering the power shot from Paul even if he/she blocks.
Look like Ken with Paul
Customize Paul with long hair or a ponytail, and for the gloves buy yellow or red ones. He should now resemble Ken from the Street Fighter series.

Look under Julias skirt:
Choose practice mode. Select Hwaorang as player one and julia as practice dummy in her Indian clothes(press TRIANGLE). As Hwoarang, use a special attack to knock julia down. julia may be facing belly up or down. when she is down, move behind her to see under her skirt.
Make Even More Money
In Devil within Mode, besides just gathering points by killing etc. If you get

50 hit Combo
Beat the Level Fast
Take little damage as possible
Try not to get hit during the Boss battle
Find/gather as much points as you can
Try to K.O. As much enemies as you can
Don't let your life go empty

If you can do most of that, you're rank will be S which will Multiply the points you earned! You can make 100,000s of points! It worked for me
Metrosexual look with Jin
Go to custom mode and use costume 1 (Square). Set the head to metrosexual hairstyle, face to orange sunglasses, color 1 to plum, color 2 to plum, and color 3 to plum.

Mokujin wooden block sounds
When playing as Mokujin, hold Down at the loading screen until the fight starts. Mokujin will sounds like a wooden block when blocking.
Quick Matches
If you change the game into one round, you'll have quicker matches in arcade mode. You can go up in ranks much faster, I've gotten from beginner to champion quick. If you lose, you could just reset before the game saves that way you don't lose and you can start from where you left off, but every once in a while (when you get up in those high ranks) after winning 3 matches in a row I would quit to menu Just to be safe.
Quicker soul omen
To perform a quicker energy channel with Jin Kazama press: LP,RP,LK,RK at the same time.
An easier way to do is to configure L2 and R2.
Pac-Man reference
Choose the space stage in any mode. After the announcer says "Fight", you can see Pac-Man moving to the left behind the characters in 8-bit form.

Tekken 3 reference
On the first and second stages of Devil Within, you will hear Jin's stage music from Tekken 3 in the background.

School Girl Asuka
Play as Asuka 50 times,then select her with the triangle button
Secret Costume (Ling)
Play as Ling Xiaoyu at least 50 times, highlight her at the character select screen and press Triangle.

Yoshimitsu has some style after all
This move is not properly displayed in practise mode on the command list, to make it work properly, you need explicit timing. The controls are forward forward + triangle. Wait til your opponent moves toward you, I mostly just try my luck but when you get it right, it looks like yoshimitsu runs and uses his blade to pass right through his opponent. I really enjoy doing it... Good Luck

A "SUPER COMBO" with Steve Fox
Press Square + Triangle + Circle + X to charge up. Hold Forward, then press Square + Triangle. Continue to hold Forward and do ten hit combo #2 by holding Forward and pressing Triangle then Square quickly. Then, press Square(2), Triangle, Square(2), Triangle, Square, tap Away, then press Triangle. Make sure your opponent hits a wall, pause for a moment, then press Square, Triangle, Square, Triangle. This combo does 15 hits and 209 damage. This combo alone will KO your opponent because the entire life bar is only around 145 damage points. Note: The full combo can only be done in practice mode, as there is not enough time to finish the combo after your opponent is KO'ed in normal fights (the replay starts before the combo can be finished).
Defeating Devil Within Bosses
Stage1 - JACK
You should easily be able to beat jack the trick is to watch out for his fire bolts, i find punching on all the boses a lot easier than kicking as you can escape quicker from there next attack by jumping away.

Stage2- Heihachi's + clones
Heihachi is easy just defend and when none of them are attacking you go for it!

Stage3- Ogre
Ogre may look scary but he's really not that hard to beat- (jus wait until you get to the last ogre). The trick here is keep running in a direction, keep constantly running and dodging ogres fire. When hes in the middle of his fire beathing attack, make your way towards him and as soon as he lands - punch him in the stomache(front on) and run away. After talking half of his life away you can then transform into devil jin and use ur hellsblast on him- make sure u lock on to him. Oh yeah you can dodge his fire bolts simply by constantly jumping.

Stage 4- Gate Keeper
Now this is actually very simple kill all he people on the stage(the one that you being on) dodge the brain looking thing as it will follow you and then keep an eye on it.It will go onto one of the stages hovering and the shield will be let down. Quickly jump onto the platforms being carefull not to fall of and jump onto the shieldless stage. Punch the metal rod in the middle and when you can no longer do any damage jump down onto the platform and make your way to the stage you began on. kll the remainng people and repeat the proccess as in the begining! after the third time of doing this there wll b no more enemies jus the miny brain things, jus go onto the shieldless stage and beat the boss!

Stage5- Ogre stage 1 and 2
Ok the first stage is easy of ogre- hes alot weaker than the one in stage three, u can easily beat him but try not to lose much health! Also dont transform into devil jin save it as you will need it for stage 2 ogre.
Ok ogre stage 2 hes mean hes lean hes a big annoying reatarded boss that can get very fustrating if you dont beat him! Now here stay close to ogre so he cant use his fire attacks.
He will sweep his tail a lot and jump up and try and stand on you but sisnce this is a meelee attack it can be blocked. After he attacks you and you block it - attack him.After its lost half its health transform into devil jin and use you hells blast and finish him off.

Good luck

Dip Switches
On Arcade History, get to the screen showing you the controls. Hold down select and press X or O, and when you start your game, a big list starts. You can select the items on the list with []. It's mostly screen tests, or the colour when you hit someone. I recommend the switch on Tekken 2- it turns on Baek, who is normally unselectable. The others aren't too good.
Easy way to defeat Jinpachi
This can be used with any other character then Steve Fox, for Steve cannot kick. The easy way to defeat Jinpachi is to always jump and kick him. Jump just before he rises and kick again, repeat this until you have knocked him out. Sometimes this may not work straight away as Jinpachi does have fast moves and may get you....
Easy Win in Arcade
To easily win in arcade play as a low levelled person on your team. Purposely lose then play as your highest ranked player. They will easily destroy the weak ranked opponent and after this match some more weak opponents may follow.
