I added "Electric Chair" in. I also felt that "Tsuna Watari" should be in Rank S.
After seeing this page you can see that the ball is only millimetres away from the net, which makes it almost impossible to return.
LOL, Kite returned it comfortable after a while.

Its nothing short of a Kame-Hame Ha from DBZ.
The user stores energy in between to hands as he takes a big swing with his racket. When he returns the shot, a force-field released from his shot acts like a wall, throwing the opponent to the back of the court.
I don't really like putting movie techniques up since they are non-canonical, but then again, some anime techniques aren't canonical too. I'll put it in the list along with Gemini.

Yeah, they're non canon and that move was lame, easy to return.
Kite has Viking Horn.
I don't know where to put Perfect Fortress.
Like Ochi had just one technique, which was definetely S rank, but he had an S-Rank ablitiy too. (Mental Pressure).

Konomi couldn't have been more obvious that he is throwing Jackal away.

Unfortunately though, Perfect Fortress is far from Perfect...
Standard Lob > Perfect Fortress...
Considering Marui isn't even 1.65m tall it's what to expect.
If Marui was taller, then perfect fortress would be really fearsome. It's a really good technique in doubles as it's the complete and ultimate net defense and if the players hits a lob, like Kaoz said, the other player has time to prepare his shot comfortably and maybe score a winner, while in singles is useless, is really really useful in doubles.
The clear implication is that Marui defends with Perfect Fortress while Kite goes on the offense. A lob, even in Prince of Tennis, is always a great opportunity for the offense. Sure it doesn't seem like having your defense player at the net and offense player at baseline makes any sense, but it's not like POT is supposed to make sense. If they say this works, then it works.
I'll wait for the new chapter to rank Perfect Fortress.
I'm also adding Kimijima's Curving Volley.
