He says fear the wrath of God." Which makes me assume he believes he is a god. But i am not sure? What do you think. He usually says it before fighting which i love!!!

Well it depends on your religious point of view. If we are to take scripture literally the Devil was created by God to test the worth of man. Those that fail such a test are sent to hell , i.e the realm of the Devil. So in fact sinners are facing the wrath of God when they see the Devil and his domain.

So Devil Jin being a (the?) Devil is in fact an instrument of God's wrath. Of course I could be reading too deeply into it. Christian Symbolism has never been a strong point with Japanese writers . They tend to mess it up when they play around with it.

What he actually says is "kyofu wo oshiete yaro"... Which means "I'll tell/show you fear".

The katakana デビル (Devil) used to describe 仁 (Jin) at one point suggests to me that it's the western, more specifically late roman, archetype of evil that is canonical to Tekken. So, it's not something of a supernatural creature, but something of the devil that runs through Jin's veins. It's difficult to put into proper words, but yah.

Of course, they could've just chosen to describe 'it' as デビル for superficial reasons. I just find that unlikely.

Like I said, he isn't saying "God" at all. It's just something the localizing team did.
