The Tombstone Pile Driver is a pro-wrestling move which has been available since the first Tekken game, and is exclusive to King I, King II, Armor King, Roger/Alex and Roger Jr.. The input is db,F+2. This move differs from the regular Pile Driver, as the opponent is now facing King instead of outwards, and King drops to his knees when performing the move instead of sitting down, resulting in a much heavier impact for the opponent. This move, in real life pro wrestling, was made popular by The Undertaker and Kane, collectively known as the Brothers of Destruction.

The series of Jack robots can also perform this move. However, it is listed simply as a Pile Driver in their move lists, as, instead of dropping down to their knees, they drop their opponent while sitting down (thus making it a Spike Pile Driver). This variant was popularized by Bret "The Hitman" Hart in real life pro wrestling. Prototype Jack is unable to perform this move outside of the arcade version of the original Tekken.


  • In Tekken 3, King can perform a ground throw directly after it, which will always be a Shoulder Cracker since the opponent ends up in the "play dead" position. This is not possible against Gon, since you cannot throw him unless you are also using Gon (who cannot by itself perform the Tombstone Pile Driver).
