The Dohatsu Shoten (怒髪衝天 Dohatsu Shoten, "Towering Rage") is Akuma's first V-Trigger in Street Fighter V.

Street Fighter V Arcade-Button-HPunch+Arcade-Button-HKick



Executed by pressing Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick simultaneously, Akuma envelops his body with ki as he powers up with rage and anger.

In this state, his Gohadoken hits the opponent twice. His fireballs are able to travel full-screen, rather than fizzling out. He can also unleash two Zanku Hadokens even while jumping backwards. Additionally, when he lands his Goshoryuken, he follows-up and violently drives his opponents into the ground (making it similar to the Misogi, the ending of Evil Ryu's Messatsu Goshoryu, or Oni's Mu).

While this V-Trigger is active, Akuma also has access to an exclusive Critical Art, the infamous Shun Goku Satsu, by executing the trademark input. Although doing so will deplete his V-Gauge, it is also still possible to use his standard Critical Art, the Sekia Kuretsuha.
