Mazinger Z's Rocket Punch

Great Mazinger's Atomic Punch with both arms.

The Rocket Punch is the signature technique of the Mazinger Z and later robot models. It basically is the fist and part of the forearm being launched by rocket propulsion to attack enemies, after the attack pulls through the fist flies back to the mech and docking below the elbow. There are several variations of the attack from rotating to armored and weapon equipped. After Mazinger Z, this technique appeared in several other works, mostly other mechas.

  • Although Mazinger Z is the first and most notable instance of the attack in Mecha anime history; an earlier Toei tokusatsu series Giant Robo featured the mecha, GR-2 which used a rocket punch to take down the titular robot in combat.
