Stonehead, called Super Headbutt (超ぱちき Chō Pachiki) in the Japanese version, is a throw used by all practitioners of the Mishima Style Fighting Karate and Roger, Alex, Kuma I, Kuma II and Panda. The attacker grabs their foe, performs a short warm up, and then bashes their head against the enemy's, knocking them hard on their back.
It has existed since the first game in the Tekken series. In the case of the Kumas and Panda, the move is called "Headbutt" (Bear Headbutt, ベアぱちき bea pachiki) in the Japanese version. Only the Mishima Style Fighting Karate practitioners use the name Stonehead. The move is 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 Stonehead exist: Heihachi's Headbutt Carnival and the Devil Stonehead.
- 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 look similar to the Stonehead, known as 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 Brain Shaker has Doctor B. stagger backwards before falling.
