From what I checked out on Youtube I would say Akuma seemed to have the power advantage.

That being said; does Heihachi lack a soul?  Because he got hit by that one move of Akuma's that tears your soul to shreds and managed to survive it.

On top of that; they both seemed to have the capacity to re-energize/heal themselves but that might be a feature of that specific game.....

Though Akuma and Heihachi seemed to come back in the cinematics as well.

Also exactly how are street fighter and Tekken connected on a canon level?

I mean first Capcom x Tekken and now this?

Based on that cutscene alone, Akuma absolutely had the advantage. He had the stronger blows, as well as
tagging Heihachi more than he was hit.

Then the fight turned into two players playing them, and showed things like Akuma not blocking a single
one of his blows, to there being PS4 command prompts on screen. At this point, the fight stops being
serious and is just showcasing gameplay.

Gill survived because he's got this weird power to resurrect himself, and Gouken survived because
he used a specific technique to do so.

Heihachi does have a soul. But keep in mind that Akuma's Raging Demon was done during gameplay, not its normal in-canon power. So instead
of dying, it just "does damage" to Heihachi.

They aren't. These are what-if games. The Capcom vs. series, the crossover series in their various RPGs, etc. None of them are canon
in accordance to the official series.

Akuma had the power advantage.  So Heihachi definitely looked better since he tanked more blows from Akuma.  This looks to be integrated into the canon storyline of Tekken.  Akuma will fail as so many before him have in taking down Heihachi.  Heihachi can tank his best and was not put down. Heihachi wins in the long haul.  Undeniable.

Only a select few actually engage him. It's hilarious when they do though.

What's funny is that Heihachi has lost to weaker people than Akuma. Kazuya beat him in Tekken 1,
Heihachi beat him in Tekken 2, Heihachi was defeated by Ogre (or driven off), and Ogre was then
beaten by Jin (Tekken 3 official canon), Lost to Jin in Tekken 4, and hasn't been "on top" of Tekken
since. Pretty sure the Jack units that fought him delayed him long enough to make him miss out
on the tournament in Tekken 5 completely.

Even Bison stayed on top for a couple of games before finally being beaten. Old man Heihachi
isn't *THAT* powerful. Tough, but not powerful.

I know, I just wanted to further clarify how wrong he was in his previous statement anyway.

It why there are hundreds of pages of people arguing with the "troll crew", namely Jelly,
fangirl, abhi, and Quan. I don't know why anyone would ever engage them in anything. Its
literally the same crap thrown back and forth ad nauseum.

You can throw Tarugo in that bunch. The recent HoF thread validates his inclusion.

Yeah I saw that. But he hasn't, dare I say, "earned", the notoriety that they have.

But give it time. He will Rocky his way into our hearts.

My point still stands, anime open reject. Heihachi is less powerful but won't be killed by Akuma.  Heihachi is the guy who fucks with everyone in Tekken more so than any other character.  Add Akuma to the list very soon if characters who have tried to kill him.  He says die a thousand deaths and he does not even ko him.

Akuma hit him far more and was unable to beat him. 


The lengths fans of the street fighter franchise will go to try to exaggerate their characters is sickening.  Video is canon and Akuma failed to put him down.  That's a fact.

So it's all settled that Heihachi wins.
