How many robots have a rocket punch?
Rocket Punches tend to be a staple Super Robot attack but the answer is, too many to count
Both a lot and not quite as many as you'd expect
>>21400666Not near enough
Three fiddy... hundred?
A dishonorable surprise attacks like that really belongs to an antagonist.
>>21401734slow motion looks like fucking ass with CG, I guess it COULD be done properly but the execution is always piss

She's technically a mecha
>>21404444>>4444bro u dead RIP
>>21401393>expanse torpedos>Fist did all the explosionslel
>>21404444More headpats for Lip! we have plenty now that King Protea is busy in Brazil
Does Coutswell count?
>>21403605There's also Dangaioh and G-DangaiohEspecially the later, who actually kinda made rocket punch a be-all solution to everything
>>21402246Doesn't this predate Mazinger Z?
Mega Man sometimes has a rocket punch.And some enemies like hard Man could count too.
>>21419078Yep, by 10 years or so.
>>21400666All of them, Satan. All of them.It's just that some of them go around through life with pilots that never find out which button sends the punches flying.
>>21425480It's only 5 years
>>21401734>>21412529The only Getters with Rocket Punches
a lot of Dragon Ball mechs have the rocket punch
MGS Rocket punch
>>21449524THAT IS SO COOL!
>>21459379The poor moon.
They were even smart enough to mount extra rockets on the fist so it could be returned.
>>21470146fuck the moon.
>>2144952416 didn't have rocket punch, it had machinegun wrists.
>>21477238You're wrong on both counts.
>>21400666all of them at least once
>>21471749Saw something similar in one of the Super Robot Wars manga, Kamille in his brashness gets into a melee fight with no weapons and suddenly reveals he put rocket punches into the Zeta and yells "ROCKET PUNCH" while also yelling he has wanted to do that for ages, with Kouji in the background wondering if it's really that big of a deal.Apparently it it since every Gundam pilot then demands Kamille to modify their Gundams to have Rocket Punches and Kouji is still just "it's a regular attack, guys, nothing that special".
Does the elbow rocket count?
>>21494809If it don't leave the trunk, it's bunk.
>>21470152Gaogaigar had a similar function, except that the propelling nature of the Broken Magnum/Phantom allowed it to return.
>>21470152>>21495682Mazinger had that in the 70s
>>21494809>>21494955It was a missed opportunity during the Mariana trench battle.
>>21496006Really I can only think of Gaiking from LODM explicitly not having his fists automatically return to him.
>>21498322And even that eventually got sorted
>>21492345There was also that Ideon manga where Amuro pilots a Zeta Variant that has funnel arms.
>>21400666Any robot with arms can have a rocket punch if you stuff enough explosives in it's elbows.
>>21501723>funnel arms.I'm sorry what?
>>21505363I mean, doesn't the Zeong have something like that with its wire guided hands?
>>21508640You tell me.
>>21510628Is this Gigantis?
>>21444611Drill missile from getter 2 and lygar forms is essentially a rocket punch.
>>21491841Why is that all the cool stuff that happens in megaman only fucking happens in manga series and not fucking games or cartoons?
>>21449524>>2147723816 isn't a fucking mech, you don't drive him, he's a robot, and he had rocket wrists.
>>21537948No, it was his forearm as well.And I believe Op DID said how many ROBOTS have rocket punches.So every "mech" listed here, is not what Op was asking for.
>>21537948Also, fuck you. Fists are used for punching. Fists have wrists. Just because the rockets are at the wrist and no closer to the elbow, does not make it a "Rocket punch".Rocket Wrists, sound like rockets are coming out of the wrists. Which are something completely different.
>>21537982>>21537967He shot his fist out like a bullet and punched Cell in the face, lad. Idk what else you want from me.
>>21515749yes, mega zeta be a bit weird
>>21400986>hetero bastardis this a mistranslation or this show is this an LGBT propaganda?
>>21555031you can quickly figure that out from reverse image searching and reading linked web pages , you retarded tourist niggerfaggot
>>21555031I am in good mood so I will spoonfeed youThey are fighting against sea monsters called heterodomes
>>21555044woah, sit down monkeyno need to go on rampage because I asked a little question.here you go, hope you are happy now>>21555049Thank you, kind anon
>>21557493nta but I looked it up because it looked like strange versions of the Urusei Yatsura charactersIt's episode 72
>>21537945You need a high accelerating rocket to have a significant impact which in turn depends on elapsed time. Hack Toro failed basics physics.
>>21470152i love megabots so much its unreal
>>21552749that rotoscoping lol
>>21557844Please refer to this image to understand why that punch is justified anyways
>>21400684This.It gets even crazier when you take the toys into account. Pretty much every single robot toy from Mazinger Z up until at least 1980 had spring-loaded fists, even if that trait never appeared in the tie-in cartoon series.
>>21565279whose fist is this?
>>21537982>Fists are used for punching.Evolutionarily-speaking, hands aren't really designed for punching, so much as grabbing. Our upper bodies are surprisingly well adapted for throwing things.
shit just got seriouswe about to throw hands now
We need a crotch rocket punch.
>>21591212...I guess you could call that a rocket shitkill me
>>21541184>struggling as if the arms were still attachedThat's... Kinda cool, actually
>>21498333not really since Gaiking the great was only really used twice
The Tsugumori in Knights of Sidonia. I'm not sure if the other gardes have that ability or not.
