Stonehead, called Super Headbutt (超ぱちき Chō Pachiki) in the Japanese version, is one of the signature throws of the Mishima Style Fighting Karate, available to all practitioners.

Roger, Alex, KumaKuma II and Panda have their own variant of this throw called "Headbutt" (Bear Headbutt, ベアぱちき bea pachiki) in the Japanese version.

Execution

The performer grabs the opponent by the neck with their left arm, raises their left knee and head, then let out a small Kiai (Dah! in the case of Devil Jin), after which the performer bashes their head and knee against the opponent's, knocking them to the ground.

This throw has existed since the first game in the Tekken series. Only the Mishima Style Fighting Karate practitioners use the name Stonehead, although it was spelled Stone Head in the US and EU versions of Tekken 2. The input is f,F+1+2; the escape input is 1+2.

Two variations of the Stonehead exist: Heihachi's Headbutt Carnival and the Devil Stonehead.

Trivia

  • In Tekken 2, the Stonehead is an inescapable throw, yet the seemingly identical Headbutt by Kuma, Roger and Alex can be escaped.
  • Despite not using the martial art, Lars Alexandersson has a move that looks similar to the Stonehead, known as the SHB.
    • Doctor Bosconovitch also has a move which is the same as the Stonehead, known as the Brain Shaker. The difference between the two is that the Brain Shaker has Doctor B. stagger backwards before falling over after executing the move.
