(北斗百裂拳 Hundred Rending Fists) is Kenshirō's trademark, infamous attack and synonymous with the Hokuto no Ken series. Kenshirō unleashes a flurry of over one hundred punches which target the opponent's pressure points, triggering the violent explosion of internal organs so characteristic of the Hokuto Shin Ken style.
This attack was first used against Zeed in the Hokuto no Ken manga. (pictured, right).
Regardless of its iconic status, this attack is specified only once in the original manga, other distinct techniques with similar effect or execution are used. It is instead heavily featured in the TV series and in subsequent spin-offs even though Kenshiro does not announce it often.
