A Rage Drive is a type of move introduced in Tekken 7: Fated Retribution. Rage Drives are powered up versions of regular attacks that can only be used while in Rage status. Rage Drives often give fighters new combo opportunities or extend their existing combos. As with Rage Arts, using a Rage Drive will take away the character's Rage status. They are similar to EX Specials in the Street Fighter series.
Characters are given a blue aura while executing Rage Drives.

Non-Rage Drives/Super Moves:
- Akuma - Can do a move of his choice depending on how many EX Bars he spends, but if so, the move is more noticeable.
- Geese Howard - Can do a move of his choice depending on how many Super and EX Bars he spends, but if so, the move is more noticeable.
- Eliza - Uses her powers to create a huge spike in the ground launching them in the air. Cannot be standing guarded as it counts as a low attack.
Rage Drive's are generally safer to use than Rage Arts as many of them are fast and nonpunishable. Some character's Rage Drives, such as Dragunov's, put the opponent in a special downed state in which they are unable to act for a short period of time, allowing for a free follow-up attack. Other's, like Lilli's, allow fighters to use two screw attacks in one combo, extending a combo further.
Rage Drives are generally more useful than Rage Arts as they can be used in more circumstances, although both mechanics can be used to a player's advantage.
- While some characters do not posses Rage Drives, they can expend their super meters for a special attack.
- Akuma can spend his EX Gauge to perform a powered up version of his Gohadoken, the Messatsu Gohado.
- Geese Howard can spend his Super Gauge to perform two different supers, the powered up version of his Reppuken known as Raigou Reppuken and the signature radial vortex wave Raging Storm.
- Eliza can expend her super meter to perform a powered up Dark Wave that launches the opponent into the air.
