Gon.jpg

Gon is a little prehistoric character in the Tekken universe that does not appear to get along with any animal it meets. While he appears very cute, the little dino will attack and bully anything it comes in contact with. It bites and farts and is a menace. One more thing, the Dino does not talk.


Biography

Gon is a small, silent dinosaur of unknown species. When events caused others of his kind to become extinct, Gon somehow survived, and now spends his time traveling the world, exploring his environments and interacting with other animals he meets. Gon is very strong, being able to lift things much heavier than he is, and has a tough, almost impenetrable hide.

Personality

Gon has a very short temper, and has very little patience. Despite this, Gon is very warm-hearted and likes interacting with fellow animals, and will always aid any other beings in their time of need. Gon also has a very large appetite and is always on the hunt for food. While he is of limited intelligence, Gon does have a cunning side, particularly when it comes to hunting.

Trivia

  • Gon is one of the select few characters featured here who doesn't have a backstory for obvious reasons.
  • Gon is a capable dancer as seen in the Super Famicom's version (the Japanese version of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System) of his own eponymous manga.
  • Gon's adventures are comedic with environmental connotations in most cases.
  • Gon's Ending in Tekken 3 undergoes a continuous loop, which will only stop the moment the player presses Start.
  • The creator behind Gon who goes by the name of Masashi Tanaka only mentioned this once about the reason on why he created Gon and his series: "This work contains no dialog or onomatopoetic words. People always ask me why I have done this. From the beginning, I didn't think it was necessary. Manga should be without grammar. I also think that it is strange to give animals human language and make them talk. What I set out to do with Gon was to draw something that was more interesting than anything you could say in words. Manga still has great potential that does not exist in other media. I plan to continue developing the art of expression"
