Rage Art in Tekken 8 is a type of special ability each fighter possesses that players can use to deal powerful attacks with power-crushing properties. However, you will only be able to activate and use it while the fighter has entered a Rage State. The special move was first featured back in Tekken 7 following the introduction of the Rage State in its previous installment.

The Rage Stat simply increases the attack power once the fighter’s health is dropped below 25% and it works kind of similar to the revenge gauge features in the Street Fighter series. It is automatically triggered and can be easily spotted once the health bar turns into flames.

Players will first need to enter a Rage State to use the special move in Tekken 8. Once their health drops below 25% and their character is in the state, you can simply activate and use the Rage Art by using R2 on your PS5 controller and RT on your Xbox controller.

Using the special ability you will be able to deal extensive damage as well as deplete the fighter’s recoverable health in the game. That said, these special moves can be countered and since it’s available once per round, you might want to use it accordingly.
