The Messatsu Gohado (滅殺豪波動, Messatsu Gou Hadou, "Annihilator Great Surge") is a Super Combo used by Akuma in many of his appearances.
X-Men: Children of the AtomEdit
DescriptionEditThe Messatsu Gohado is a much stronger purple version of the Shinku Hadoken that inflicts a great deal of damage, and can be used in the air as well as on the ground. In the VS. series, like all Hadoken Supers, this move is portrayed as a long energy beam. In X-Men: Children of the Atom, it is orange and is one of his ultimate attacks, with the additional ability to burn the opponent, similar to his Shakunetsu Hadoken and the Street Fighter Alpha series' version of the Messatsu Gohado.
In Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Akuma fires the midair version diagonally-downwards towards the opponent, similarly to the Tenma Gozanku; the game also introduced the variations named Messatsu-Gohado Agyo (滅殺豪波動・阿形, "Annihilating Great Surge: Flattering Form") and Messatsu-Gohado Ungyo (滅殺豪波動・吽形, "Annihilating Great Surge: Growling Form").
It usually gets up to 8 hits maximum in the Street Fighter series, while in the crossover games, it can hit more than 8 times. In some of the video games, by using his Satsui no Hado taunt, its damage and lethality increases.
