In the old Tekken games, players were given several seconds after achieving victory to do whatever they want while the opponent was lying defeated on the floor. Some players simply wait for the next round, but there are other players who spend this time taunting the enemy or doing what the Japanese call “Corpse Kicking”.

Corpse Kicking is the act of continuously attacking the opponent even after a player has already won. Most of the time, players can’t help but exhibit this behavior especially when players get really immersed in the game. In Japanese gaming culture however, there are players who see this act as a form of bad manners and takes offense toward it.

The second to the most recent game in the Tekken series, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 prevented this issue by removing the free time players were granted after a victory, thus no longer allowing them to do anything to the opponent (unless they had a special item equipped like the halo). This in turn however, displeased many Tekken players who missed the chance to do taunts after winning.

After explaining his own thoughts on the matter, Katsuhiro Harada the producer of the Tekken series mentioned in a tweet that Tekken 7: Fated Retribution will be including a new method to please both parties concerning the issue of “Corpse Kicking”.
