Godhand, who's real name is Ken Mishima, is an ex-mercenary of the sinister Red Scorpion organization. Upon uncovering the true significance of the ancient ruins in regard to immortality, he severs his right arm as a means to leaving Red Scorpion, believing that his own plans for the ruins would make up for the sacrifice. Sharing some of what he knows with a powerful organization, he garners an ally that provides him with a new right arm along with the means to establish his own company dedicated to uncovering the secret of immortality. At the same time that he acquires a new right arm, he learns from his research teams that the EHRGEIZ stone may be the key to the ruins and the secret it holds. His growing ambition leads him to join the EHRGEIZ tournament in an attempt to gain possession of the weapon.

Clearly, Godhand resembles both Kazuya Mishima and Jin Kazama - who became quite popular at the time Ehrgeiz was released. Godhand's moveset even has quite a few Mishima-style attacks. Distant Great Uncle Ken Mishima who went off to the military? Is that you? lol. Along with Kazuya's trademark evil glare and Jin's hairstyle, this silver-haired badass is also sporting the trademark Mishima gloves. Strangely, Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada has confirmed on several occasions that Godhand is NOT canonically related to the dysfunctional Mishima family we know and love. -__- Ohh well.

Godhand has some pretty entertaining projectile attacks (rocket punches? grenades?) and has a decent moveset, but he's clearly underdeveloped. Still... it would be pretty epic fan service if Namco ever decided to obtain the rights for this character and add Godhand to a future Tekken game.
