Hwoarang, (born August 23, 1985) is a character first appearing in Tekken 3, is the student of Baek Doo San and Jin Kazama's rival. Hwoarang enters the third King of Iron Fist tournament during Tekken 3, to avenge his master, Baek and his dojo, which had been destroyed by Ogre. Baek, didn't actually die in the attack but was put into a coma for a year. Hwoarang also enters the tournament to defeat Jin Kazama, who he had been defeated by earlier on. From Tekken 4 onwards, Hwoarang becomes a soldier and enters the fourth King of Iron First Tournament to fight Jin Kazama. During Tekken 5, Hwoarang enters the fifth King of Iron Tournament once again to face Jin Kazama, who once Hwoarang defeats, transforms into Devil Jin, who in turn defeats Hwoarang. Hwoarang also finds out that his master, Baek, who also enters the tournament, isn't actually dead.

Hwoarang is still a rival of Jin Kazama in Tekken 6.

Hwoarang was referred to as Boy on Bike during Tekken 3's pre-release as he was unnamed at the time. Because fans seemed to have a hard time spelling his name, he was still sometimes referred to as Boy on Bike or Bob for short even after his name was revealed. However, he is not to be confused with the character Bob, who would later debut in Tekken 6.
