Dashing attacks are a recurring feature that has appeared in virtually all of the games in the Goketsuji Ichizoku series. It is simply an attack that is executed while dashing. When either a punch or kick button is pressed during the dash, the character slides forward into the foe with the attack. These attacks are usually somewhat stronger than a regular attack. The strength of the attack button pressed does not change the moves' power or animation. Dashing kicks, however, are capable of knocking down the opponent.
It is important to note, however, that while dashing, or even while performing dashing attacks, that a counterattack will increase the amount of damage received as well. Starting with Power Instinct Matrimelee, a counterattack while in the process of executing a dashing attack will result in a Double Counter Hit.
