Its command input is f,N,d/f+1 but performed as a just-frame move. During the animation, Heihachi will perform a crouch-dash and jumps forward while performing the classic Dragon Uppercut, but being a just-frame version it has a striking visual difference.
The "Electric" Dragon Uppercut is more than just a flashy move. Here are its pros and advantages:
- The regular Dragon Uppercut runs at -16 frames while the "Electric" version runs at -14 frames. During the animation, Heihachi's left arm will be shrouded in blue sparks followed by an electric aura as it hits the opponent.
- On hit, the regular Dragon Uppercut deals 38 damage, while the "Electric" version deals bonus 2 damage on the opponent.
- Unlike the regular version, the "Electric" Dragon Uppercut can be performed in a continuous string and can be followed-up with a quick Iron Hand (qcf+2) thanks to having a shorter wind-up time.
- The move is safe on punishment and tracks some sidestepping moves (usually at the right).
- Starting from Tekken 7, it can now launch opponents to the air.
- As with the many of his move sets, Jinpachi also has a unique way of performing the Dragon Uppercut. In this situation, he needs to enter a stance before he can perform the move.
