    • Telepush: Instead of striking them with another telekinetic blast, Ermac flips the opponent upside down and slams them down face first.
  • Soul Ball: Ermac shoots a sphere of soul energy straight at his enemy. It increases in damage depending on how many orbs are floating around Ermac when it's performed. If there are three of them around him, besides the great damage increase, it will also stun the opponent, setting them up for a free hit.

  • Gluttony: Ermac lifts the opponent, flips them upside down and proceeds to tear them vertically in half.

  • Cannonball Slam: Ermac lifts up his opponent with his telekinetic powers and slams them into the ground headfirst, breaking the skull, spine, and neck. Ermac then hovers above his enemy with his Mystic Float and does an elbow drop to the opponent's back, crushing their spine and ribs.
