Description[edit | edit source]

Makoto activating her Tanden Renki against Ryu in Super Street Fighter IV.

Executed by performing two quarter-circle forward motions and pressing punch, Makoto enters a blind rage, which turns her skin red, turns her Super Combo Gauge into a timer and increases the damage inflicted by all of her attacks by 25%.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

In 3rd Strike, the move renders her unable to block for its duration, in exchange for a massive 1.6x attack boost. Tanden Renki also has invincibility during the start-up frames. However, skilled players can still make use of parrying with her, so learning to counter her opponents' moves can lead to good management with this move.

In Super Street Fighter IV, as the move is now available at any time when the super meter is full (as opposed to being selected at the expense of her other super attacks), it is possible to use it as a bridge and then transition to another move as soon as she recovers from the activation. The recovery is very short and can allow her to perform another attack that otherwise would not be possible in the interval. This is one way to land a guaranteed Seichusen Godanzuki during a combo (by performing a light Hayate and then using the Tanden Renki immediately at the end, she can then execute her Ultra Combo within range and her opponent still stunned).

In OMEGA Mode, Tanden Renki can be activated with 2 or more bars (albeit with a shorter time limit). Her focus attack is replaced with a parry move for its duration, and all special moves gain unique properties such as Hayate gaining multiple hits or Fukiage hitting grounded opponents.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In Street Fighter × Tekken Heihachi Mishima's Pandora mode has him turn red in a similar hue to Makoto. Also, similar to Makoto, he gains an attack bonus on all of his attacks plus he works on a timer just like Makoto. There are two important differences as instead of costing meter it costs him usage of his partner (though this refills his meter), and if he doesn't score the KO after the time instead of the effect wearing off Heihachi loses the round.
