• Akashi → Emperor Eye
  • Kise → Perfect Copy
  • Aomine → Formless Shot (among others)
  • Murasakibara → Thor's Hammer
  • Midorima → ???

Does Midorima's ability to shoot 3-pointers from anywhere on the court have a super-cool name like the special techniques of the rest of the Generation of Miracles?

There's a few frames in the last OP of season 3 that say "Sky Direct 3P Shoot" in green text, which I suppose sounds kind of like a description of Midorima's technique, but I don't recall having heard that in the anime. (It's also the only move name in that OP I can't match up to a player, for what it's worth.)

  • Emperor Eye is not a shooting ability. It's an eye ability, like Sharingan and Byakugan is. Same with Kise's Perfect Copy. Jan 27, 2016 at 14:15
  • I wasn't making a distinction between "shooting abilities" and "other abilities". I was just bucketing all the various basketball superpowers together as just "abilities".

  • Akashi's signature move is Ankle Break. Midorima's signature shot as answered is High Projectile three.

Well, in the manga, his skill is also hardly mentioned, and when he does it, he is "shooting" and mostly translated as "Midorima's super long 3-pointer/shooting" or some variation. There wasn't a special name for it.

The wikia lists it as:

High Projectile Three
Perfect Accuracy
Unlimited Range

So I guess there really isn't a "special" name for his move. Just a super long 3 pointer.
