I have vague recollections of watching a cartoon, perhaps originally japanese in nature, called Force Five. There were different installments of Force Five, and my favourite was one featuring a dude named Orion Quest, or something like that...he would actually yell that as he was turning into the superhero dude. He had this big fuckin robot named Grandizer, or something similar, and it kicked no small amount of ass. Each time Grandizer used a weapon, Orion would yell out the name of said weapon :

SCREW-SAUCER PUNCH!

SPACE THUNDER!

RAINBOW BEAM!

and other such things. Does anyone else remember this, or am I having an LSD flashback?

Grandizer ruled. Or at least I thought it did. I used to have TDK tapes with episodes of GRANDIZER, ULTRAMAN and VOLTRON. Haven't seen it sober in years.

The calling out of specialty attacks is very Street Fighter.

Aparently, it was the Screw-Pressure punch. I found a website run by people that take Grandizer and Orion Quest VERY seriously.
