Lore Miguel Caballero Rojo

PokeMixupKeepoutWhiff punishOkizemePressureDefenseTricky


Miguel, the angry Spaniard, is a close-range brawler that likes to get in his opponent's face and pressure them with effective pokes and mix-ups from his Savage Stance. He was first introduced in Tekken 6 and has returned in every installment.

He is a solid character with decent tracking, combo damage, counter hit tools, okizeme, pressure, and exceptional movement. Despite this, he struggles with long-range punishes and lacks moves with built-in evasion, with the exception of b, f+1. Miguel wants to be either right in front of the opponent or dancing just out of range to whiff punish with his good hopkick or f+4,2.

NOTE: Everyone likes to joke around with the fact that Miguel has T-Rex arms. This is due to the frustration players feel when Miguel can barely hit someone who's right in front of him with a generic 1 or 2 jab. He has high jabs, kind of the opposite of Kazumi's jabs. The only range issues he has are with 2 (for i11 punisher 2,1) and d+1 (duck jab).

Many speculate that Namco personally prefers Miguel having short range with his generic jabs as they want to re-enforce the idea of Miguel being close-up and in your face.
