Devil Wings in Ultimate.
Kazuya briefly turns into Devil Kazuya as he flies straight upwards with his wings. During this state, he can move left or right while flying, which when combined with its impressive vertical distance make it a solid recovery tool. It deals damage while rising, and the sweet spot on Kazuya's wings at the beginning of the move boasts impressive strength and can KO as early as 100%. For this reason and its fairly generous frame 12 startup, it is a noteworthy combo finisher within Kazuya's moveset. Due to its large hitboxes and ability to hit both sides of Kazuya simultaneously, it also functions as a very effective out of shield tool.
Unlike most up special moves, it does not render Kazuya helpless and can be used in conjunction with the rest of Kazuya's moveset, with the exceptions of Devil Fist and itself. Kazuya must land on a platform before both moves can be used again. However, it has a significant amount of ending lag (almost on par with Ryu's Shoryuken) that makes it punishable if used haphazardly.

Devil Wings is an original move, but is based on various cutscenes throughout the Tekken series, where he is shown to fly in his Devil Kazuya form. It is also based on the move Fly, which was introduced in Tekken 2.
