Known to some as “King Kai’s Fist”, the Kaioken manifests as a brilliant crimson flame surrounding the user. With this almost divine power, you can multiply your power by many times, allowing you to ascend to the highest echelons of greatness. But this power comes at a cost; don’t abuse this great strength, lest the strain it causes on your body forces you to explode…
Exponential Power. When you enter Kaioken, you must choose a level between one (Standard) and three (Intense), depicted on the table below. During your turn you can also change the level of Kaioken you are using by spending one action. If you have the ‘Surging Strength’ Talent, changing the level of Kaioken becomes an Instant Action.
Consult the table below for their benefits.
|Kaioken Table||Level one (Standard)||Level two (Strong)||Level three (Intense)|
|High Speed Form||Level One||Level Two||Level Three|
|Extra Dice||ToP +1||ToP +2||ToP +3|
When using Kaioken, you increase the Extra Dice gained from Tier of Power to a higher category based on the table above; for example, if you are Tier of Power 1, you will gain the Tier of Power Extra Dice of 1d4 at the first level of Kaioken, 1d6 at the second level of Kaioken or 1d8 at the third level of Kaioken.
The level of your High Speed Form Aspect is equal to the current level of Kaioken.
The bonuses gained to your Initiative detailed above does not change your position in Initiative and are used solely to determine if you gain Initiative Advantage.
Cost of Strength. For each action taken while using Kaioken, including Counter Actions and Instant Actions, you receive Lethal Damage equal to half your Power Level. This damage is doubled if you are using the second level of Kaioken and it is tripled if you are using the third level of Kaioken. This damage can not be reduced by any means.
Increase the damage received through Cost of Strength by +3(T) when you are using another transformation in conjunction with Kaioken, except transformations with the Perfect Ki Control Aspect.
Surge of Strength. You can add a Ki Wager onto an attack you are making equal to the amount of damage you have suffered from Cost of Strength this Combat Round without spending any Ki Points. If you successfully strike the target with that attack, immediately end the Kaioken Enhancement Power and suffer from Stress Exhaustion.
Additionally, as an Instant Action, you can enter the next level of Kaioken when in an Energy Duel. If you are already in the third level of Kaioken, you can choose to spend an Instant Action to reduce your Life Points by 10(T) to increase your Ki Points by an equal amount. You can only use this effect of Surge of Strength once per Combat Round.
