Applies to Tekken 3 and Tag only. Renders first hit a counter hit but leaves you unable to guard while charged.


Applies to Tekken 3 and Tag only.

Into background: u+2
Into foreground: d+2

If you perform the tech roll at the right time (keep hitting u (or d)+2 just before your fighter hits the ground), you can recover and get up quickly when you are knocked down to the ground. If you land face down on Tekken 3, you can't perform a tech roll. For some reason the CPU can perform a ukemi tag on their face (?)

When hit while falling: 1 or 2

True Ogre and Gon have a way of jumping up when they get juggled...
