The latest character trailer for Arika and Bandai Namco’s TEKKEN 8 puts the spotlight on “The White Angel of Death” Sergei Dragunov.
Sergei Dragunov is a member of the Spetsnaz, first making his appearance in Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection. Cold, calculating, and completely impassive, he prides himself on being stoic and unreadable – just the thing to get the edge in battle.
His fighting style is called Commando Sambo, which serves a modified offensive style of Sambo that is used and trained by the Russian army. In TEKKEN 7, his moveset included such moves as Volk Clutch, Purge Slam, Tarantula Sting, Reverse Fracture, Absolute Silence, and Blizzard Rush.
See him in action with the trailer below:
