This page is for Tekken 8. For Tekken 7, see Bryan (Tekken 7).

Bryan is very easy to define: he's a counter hit monster. He has a litany of very strong counter hit attacks, such as b+1, 3+4, f+3, and SWA.3, that he can convert into incredible damage.

The buff Snake Eyes (SNE) gives him access to several new moves and upgraded versions of standard moves. Effective use of Snake Eyes is crucial for a Bryan player's success.

His backsway gives him access to Hatchet Kick (SWA.3), one of the most chunky and oppressive lows in the game, and his new Cannonball Straight (SWA.1), a +5 on block high with blistering speed and great range. His crouchdash, a.k.a Slither Step (SLS), gives him extremely good wall carry capabilities, with multiple mixups to catch opponents trying to jab out. Bryan has strong pressure at the wall with many oppressive options such as 3+4, hold 2, which wallsplats regardless of being blocked or not, and his heat smash, which is +17 on block at the wall.

Bryan's flashiest tool is his taunt (1+3+4), an unblockable mid with 16 frames of advantage which can enable b+4 or the infamous Taunt Jet Upper (TJU) (1+3+4 f,b+2), an unblockable launcher, with the trade-off of requiring multiple frame perfect inputs. Proficiency with Bryan's taunt in okizeme and standing pressure situations is important for high-level play.

Bryan's explosive, high-damage gameplan comes with the penalty of poor standing punishment, and optimizing his punishment requires some very difficult execution. Getting the most out of Bryan requires a great deal of intermediate and high-level understanding of almost every notable mechanic in Tekken, but the reward is one of the scariest characters to press a button against in the entire game.

  • Monstrous Damage and Wall Carry: Bryan's damage is great across the board, and hitting the wall is extremely easy with Bryan. Also, thanks to Jet Upper being i14, he can launch many moves that most others cannot.
  • Counter-Hit King: Bryan has an incredible set of counter-hit launchers, some of which have good tracking and are even plus on block.
  • Anti-Social Distancing: Bryan's range, particularly with his kicks, is impressive. 3+4 pushes opponents out massively and Mach Kick (f,F+4) can stuff a lot of approach attempts. Once he has them at the perfect range, he can start applying pressure with b+1, qcb+1, or qcb+3.
  • Stay Down: Extremely strong oki with Taunt, which is especially prevalent at the wall. A proficient Bryan player can effectively end the game if they catch a tech roll.
  • Enjoys Getting Punished More Than Punishing: While Bryan has no shortage of standing punishment options (Mach Punch being a very good long-range punish), everything between his jabs and Jet Upper is mediocre at best, with none of them wall splatting cleanly and having varying damage or frame advantage issues.
  • Weak Panic Buttons: Bryan doesn't have a lot on the defensive side apart from a punch reversal. His high crushes are sub-par (especially the notoriously bad Snake Edge) and his low crushes are pretty slow to come out.
  • Demanding Execution: Bryan's most rewarding Taunt follow-ups, b+4 and Jet Upper, require frame-perfect execution, making him extremely difficult to optimize.
