    Default Coolest-Looking Moves in Gaming

    Pretty straight forward: I've long been contemplating the way certain characters and their attacks/moves come across to the audience. One of the major reasons I am such a big fan of Final Fantasy VII is because of the awesome attack styles of characters like Cloud, Tifa, and Cid. Perhaps it was not the first game to relay such mind-blowing movesets but, it was the first game I played in which I witnessed such a thing.

    Anyhow, very likely this thread will become bogged down by those who will post just one example. In such a case, I hope to the name of the character and the game they are from as well as the name of the attack or, in lieu of that, a short description of the attack or why it is cool.

    Some that come to mind:

    Final Fantasy VII (of course)
    Cloud's Braver, Climhazzard, and Omnislash
    Tifa's Somersault and Meteor Strike
    Cid's Dives and Big Brawl
    Yuffie's Greased Lightning and Doom of the Living

    Legend of the Dragoon
    Lavitz/Albert's Gust of Wind Dance


    I could list more but I don't want the first post to get bogged down either.

    So, yeah, anyway, list your favorite moves by coolness (not by damage or aoe).

    There are so many in the Super Robot Taisen games, I can't list them all. Instead I'll just post one example

    Just to hide the big youtube clip for people who want to scroll past

    Suikoden 3 - Bow Wow attack. Koroku, Koichi, Connie, Kosanji, and Kogoro.

    The attack starts at around 5:00 in the video.

    Including Touhou spellcards is probably cheating, but can't go wrong with these two.

    Yoshimitsu seppuku in Tekken and Soul Calibur is just so disrespectful and dope-looking if you can pull it off

    Shoryuken for just being iconic af

    Ganondorf pretty much anything in Smash

    My god, I'm glad I've never heard of that touhou game. Even watching how predictable the patterns actually are, playing a game like that would probably turn me into a murderer.

    As to Tekken, yes, there are some phenonemally watchable moves, not the least of which I'd include Kazuya's spinning kicks.
    DOA's got some pretty great ones too.
