The Animal Uppercut is a move, very similar to the Dragon Uppercut, exclusive to Roger, Alex and Roger Jr.. The move notation is exactly the same as the Dragon Uppercut, however the animation, hit range and frame data is different. It also differs by not having clean hit damage. The Animal Uppercut can also be used in a juggle, whereas a Dragon Uppercut cannot unless the previous move was a Class 1 launcher.

In the US and EU versions of Tekken 2, this move is called Jumping Uppercut.
