Sergei Dragunov is a character in the Tekken series. Dragunov, along with Lili, first appeared in Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection, and he has been confirmed to return in Tekken 6 and Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion.
Sergei Dragunov (Russian: Сергей Драгунов; Japanese: セルゲイ・ドラグノフ serugei doragunofu) is a member of SPETSNAZ, the military headquarters responsible for investigating the unknown body. They thought of giving special orders to one man involved in the excavation. A man named Dragunov, a member of the Special Forces, the very symbol of fear on the battlefield who has been dubbed "The White Angel of Death" because of his overwhelming fighting prowess.
* With the exception of various grunts and kiais during fights, Dragunov does not speak. It is debated as to whether or not he is an actual mute or if he prefers not to speak. His grunts and kiais are performed by veteran seiyuu Tessho Genda.
* Dragunov's name is based on the two Russian rifle designers; Sergei Simonov and Evgeny Dragunov. His name may also be based on real life sambo player Sergei Kharitonov.
* Dragunov's first sub-boss, encountered at Stage 4, is Raven. Raven divulges that he is on to his "organization" and actions. It is also highly speculated that Raven may have some ties to Dragunov, as both are members of elite units and are both sent to investigate the events in Tekken 5.
* Before Dragunov fights Devil Jin during his Stage 8 encounter, he looks at a picture of his opponent. It appears to be a picture of Devil Jin in his complete transformation (see Devil Jin's Tekken 5 ending). Also, after Dragunov defeats Devil Jin, Dragunov can be seen dragging an unconscious Devil Jin by the horns.
*It is unknown what is the entity in his ending; speculation leads the entity to be Azazel or Devil Kazuya, but paying particular attention to the ending section of the clip, is possible to note a similarity between its silhouette and Jinpachi's. This may mean that the model of Jinpachi was used for the entity, but not that it actually is Jinpachi in terms of storyline, since it was kept unrecognizable.
* In the arcade beta-version of Tekken 6, Dragunov's name is spelled "Dragnov". It is also spelled "Dragnov" in an issue of Arcadia. This is a translation error, and Dragunov's name is correctly spelled "Dragunov" in the international version of Tekken 6.
* Dragunov has a new pre-fight animation in Tekken 6. In it, the camera focuses on Dragunov's face as he approaches his opponent. Then, the camera lowers to show all of his body except his lower legs and feet. Then, the camera moves up to Dragunov's upper body as he goes into his fighting stance.
* Dragunov has a new win animation in Tekken 6. It is seen by pressing and holding after winning a fight with Dragunov. For it, the opponent will be shown laying unconscious on the floor. Then, Dragunov will come in crawling from the right to the left, in front of his unconscious opponent. He also has another new win animation, which starts with Dragunov walking away from his opponent with his hands behind his back. His back is facing the screen. However, this win animation has yet to be completely shown, as it is always cut out before it is completed.
* He will be potrayed by Anton Kasabov in the 2009 film Tekken.
* In Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion, Dragunov has a new win animation where he apathetically looks at his watch, then simply turns around and leaves.
