This was the first game to get a perfect score of 10 in The Official PlayStation magazine.

This was the first time sub-bosses in the game were given endings.

The game has four canon endings: Heihachi's, Jun's, Michelle's and Roger's.

Kunimitsu's fighting style was changed to wielding one dagger instead of two.

The character's stages are landmarks all around the world which include: Machu Pichu, the Grand Canyon, the Great Wall of China, Parthenon, Taj Mahal and the Statue of Liberty.

This is the only appearance of Jun Kazama as a playable character in a canon Tekken game.

Tekken 2 was the first in the series to have a Theatre Mode, where you could re-watch the openings and character endings, but it was only available in the Japanese Version.
