The Power Launcher is a new gameplay mechanic introduced in Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate. This move allows the fighter to launch their opponent into the air for longer combos.

Like the Power Blow, it can only be used once the character has lost 50% or more of their lifebar. Only one "power" move can be used per round.[1]

Trivia Edit

  • Ein, Hayate, Hitomi, and Honoka all have the same Power Launcher (Tensho ("Heaven Piercer"))
    • It is possible that the Tensho was either taught to Ein from Hitomi (and retained to Hayate's memory), or taught to Hitomi from Hayate (as Ein, he may have retained the move from before his amnesia). Of course, Honoka knows the move by observing one of the three.
      • However, the input for Honoka's Tensho input is (Up-Back ArrowHold Down Punch ButtonPlus SignHold Down Kick Button), instead of Ein, Hayate, and Hitomi's inputs of (Down-Front ArrowDown-Front ArrowHold Down Punch ButtonPlus SignHold Down Kick Button).
  • Naotora Ii, and Zack are the only characters who can enter a Special Stance from their Power Launchers.
  • Jacky, Lisa, Naotora, Nyotengu, Phase 4, Rig, Sarah, and Tina are the only characters whose Power Launchers use Hold Down Hold ButtonPlus SignHold Down Kick Button instead of Hold Down Punch ButtonPlus SignHold Down Kick Button.
