  1. Finisher: Hissatsu Waza é um termo em japonês que significa golpe mortal ou técnica mortal. É composto por duas palavras: hissatsu, que significa "mortal", "fatal", "letal", e waza, que significa "técnica", "golpe" ou "truque". O termo tornou-se mais conhecido após ser usado no game Art of Fighting. Desde então, aparece em inúmeros animes e tokusatsus como o trunfo supremo de um personagem contra outro, de maneira que o "hissatsu waza" do personagem é geralmente seu golpe mortal, ou seja, o que certamente lhe garante a vitória sobre seu oponente. Não necessariamente mais poderoso, mas tal analogia é constantemente explorada em séries ou animes que apresentem tais termos.
