Paul Phoenix (born November 18, 1959) is a video game character from the Tekken fighting game series. He is a staple of the series and is content with proving that no one can match his strength.Paul is one of only four Tekken characters (the others being Heihachi Mishima, Nina Williams and Yoshimitsu) to have appeared in every game in the series. Paul also appears in the Namco game Urban Reign along with his friend, Marshall Law. He is unlocked by completing challenge mode.
Paul is a Judo expert and a good friend of the Law family. His mixture of karate and judo styles have achieved legendary status, but a seemingly minor complication always arises that prevents him from winning the tournament, as in the case when a traffic jam prevents his confrontation with his rival, Kazuya Mishima.
