"While standing, press Special Attack button. Shoot an intense crescent-shaped wave from your saber!"
―In-game text, Mega Man X7

Hadangeki (波断撃 lit. "Wave Sever Attack") is the special technique that Zero learns after defeating Vanishing Gungaroo in Mega Man X7. Pressing the special attack button while standing still will cause Zero to perform a heavy overhead slash that unleashes a powerful yellow wave of energy that travels about half the screen's width. This attack is useful for clearing out swarms of small weak enemies.

This attack is Soldier Stonekong and Red's weakness.

It reappears in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars and Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds as one of Zero's Special Moves and has three versions. The light one is the weakest but travels rather fast. The medium version travels slower but does more damage and the light one can be immediately followed up with it. The heavy version fires two combined in a X fashion to deal more damage. The command in TvC was a charge motion (Hold B, F+Atk), while in MvC3 it is a traditional QCF motion for projectiles instead (QCF+Atk). The waves are also colored green as well, and instead of a slamming slash, Zero slashes outward and downward into a lean forward to fire the wave; the heavy version has him immediately followup that said motion with a returning-lift slash.

In Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, Zero can release a max Hyper Zero Blaster charge during the Hadangeki to perform a Rakuhouha.
