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…

  • Race. Any
  • Transformation. Enhancement Power
  • Stress Test. 8
  • Tier of Power Requirement. 1+
  • Aspects: Enhanced Save (Impulsive), High Speed Form (Level *), Heartbeat, Bright Aura

Exponential Power. Before you enter Kaioken, you must choose a multiplication between x2, x3 or x4, depicted on the table below. During your turn you can also change the level of Kaioken you are using by spending One Action.

When using Kaioken, you always gain the bonuses from x2 but the higher multiplications are modifiers that are added onto x2. You do not benefit from any lower multiplier other than x2 (for example, you do not gain the bonuses of x3 when using x4).

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 when using the x2 multiplier and 1d6 when using the x3 and x4 multipliers.

To make any Maneuver when using the Kaioken, you must pay the Life Point Cost listed. Increase the Life Point cost by +3(T) if you are using Kaioken in conjunction with another Transformation that does not possess the Perfect Ki Control Aspect.

You cannot regain Life Points while using the Kaioken Enhancement Power.

Surge of Strength. Once per Combat Round, when you are making a Dodge Roll or any form of Attacking Maneuver, you may choose to use the bonuses of a higher Kaioken Multiplication by paying the Life Point Cost. This does not count as your usual Life Point Cost and is suffered in addition to that Life Point cost.

Increase the Wound Roll of all attacks you make by 1/2 of the Life Point cost you paid for that Attacking Maneuver. This effect does not apply if used in conjunction with a Transformation that does not possess the Perfect Ki Control Aspect.

If you are in a Duel Maneuver, you may choose to enter a higher multiplication of Kaioken during the Maneuver as an Out-of-Sequence Maneuver. Additionally, when entering a Duel Maneuver, you can choose to pay up to 10(T) Life Points to regain that many Ki Points.

Crimson Acclimation. With a durable enough body, you can tap into the true strength of Kaioken. While you are Tier of Power 3 or higher, gain access to the x10 and x20 multipliers shown below. If your Tier of Power drops below 3 for any reason while you are utilizing the x10 or x20 multipliers of Kaioken, you automatically exit the Transformation and suffer from Stress Exhaustion as if you failed the Stress Test.
