An Item Move is a feature that was first introduced in Tekken 6. This feature allows a certain item (two for each character) to have an effect on gameplay, rather than just being an accessory. Some "Item Move" features are used to inflict damage; however, their start time and recovery frames are too long and their damage is quite laughable. Others are only used for taunting or to alter certain grab attacks.
Initially, Tekken 6 only introduced one specific item move per character, and a sledgehammer for the male characters and Kuma, Panda, and Leo along with a naginata for the female characters and Roger Jr. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Tekken 7, however, introduced a wide variety of generic item moves, functioning as projectiles, new throws or K.O animations and other different utilities.
