Paul is one of the most popular characters in Tekken 7. Also, he is one of the most recognizable fighters in the Tekken universe.
He is extremely strong at medium to short range. The chances of defeating him relatively rise only at a short distance. Paul also has homing attacks in his arsenal, which allow him to "catch" opponents trying to dodge the fight. So Paul must be played against boldly and decisively.
Paul's most famous combo is the Death Fist. It is one of Paul's strongest moves and is familiar to so many Tekken 7 players, no matter if they play for Paul or against him.
This attack is one of the most powerful among all Paul combos Tekken 7, but still very risky.
The Death Fist is performed by doing a quarter circle motion and pressing 2, the triangle button on PS4, and "Y" button on Xbox. This move provides a far-reaching mid attack that cranks out massive damage on your enemy. But given its unsafe nature how do we use it efficiently. Using some of Paul's other powerful neutral tools than backing away from your opponent will make them want to react to your style. This is where the Death Fist becomes deadly. As they whiff their counter-attack you can time the Death Fist to punish their attempted offense.
