Rakukoujin (落鋼刃 lit. "Falling Steel Blade"), is the special technique that Zero learns after defeating Metal Shark Player in Mega Man X6. When pressing DOWN on the D-Pad then the Attack Button while airborne, Zero's Z-Saber blade transforms into a gigantic steel sword. When the sword hits the ground, it explodes, and an anchor is released from the sword. This anchor is much like Mega Man X's version of Metal Anchor -- it bounces around for while until it explodes and disappears, however, Zero's anchors last for a shorter time. Zero can have more than one anchor on the screen if the player is able to perform Rakukoujin quick enough. Rakukoujin can be used to destroy the otherwise indestructible Nightmare Iron blocks in certain stages. Performing Rakukoujin does not consume Weapon Energy until the blade hits the ground.
