A 10 Hit Combo (10連コンボ Jūren Konbo) is a generic move that is available to almost all characters throughout the Tekken series. Most characters have their own unique 10 Hit Combo, while others have multiple unique 10 Hit Combos. A 10 Hit Combo is not an attack as such, more a sequence of attacks, each requiring a button input.
As each attack is a separate move, there are opportunities for the opponent to block, escape or counter a 10 Hit Combo, but significant damage is dealt if all 10 hits connect. 10 Hit Combos can be difficult to execute as many require fast and accurate button inputs. Missing a cue in a command chain will break the combo, leaving the player vulnerable to counterattack.
In the first three games in the series you can view a 10 Hit Combo from the 'Display' option on the pause screen in practice mode. When selected, a command input will be displayed on screen and a chime will sound to indicate correct inputs, allowing players to practice the timing of the combo. Pressing 'Select' while in this mode will have the computer demonstrate the combo.
