AKB48 Group Janken Taikai 2014 ~Ken de Kochitore! 1/300 Solo Debut Sodatsusen~ (AKB48グループ・じゃんけん大会2014 ～拳で勝ち取れ! 1/300ソロデビュー争奪戦～?) is AKB48's 5th Janken Tournament. The event was held at the Nippon Budoukan on September 17, 2014. Unlike the past Janken Tournaments, the result of this tournament won't determine the Senbatsu for a new single. The event is the first Janken Tournament to select a member to have a Solo Debut instead of the usual Senbatsu. The Senbatsu members for the 38th Single were announced after the tournament.
The rewards were:
- Tournament winner: Solo debut (already debuted members get a solo concert instead)
- #2 to #16 runners-up: Coupling song + MV on the solo single
