DescriptionEdit

Sagat fires a more powerful, multi-hitting version of the Tiger Shot. In some games, such as the EX series and Capcom vs. SNK series (as seen above), there is a ground version of the move as well.

Street Fighter Alpha seriesEdit

The Tiger Cannon makes its debut as one of the three Super Combos available to Sagat. For a Level 3 Super Combo, the Tiger Cannon hits 6 times, losing a hit per level.

The Tiger Cannon is not as versatile as other projectile Super Combos, since it cannot hit crouching opponents. On the flipside, the height also makes it much more difficult to jump over.

Capcom vs. SNK crossoversEdit

Sagat's moveset more or less remains the same as the Alpha series in these crossovers; the Tiger Cannon also retains its properties from the Alpha games. However to counter its limitations against crouching opponents, Sagat gains the Low Tiger Cannon in vein of his Low Tiger Shot.

The high version has more invincibility on startup, compared to the low version. In SNK vs. Capcom, the Tiger Cannon is unique in that it can plow through lesser projectiles and still deal full damage.

Street Fighter IV seriesEdit

The Tiger Cannon makes its triumphant return in Super Street Fighter IV as Sagat's second Ultra Combo. It is much more useful, as it now has a big enough hitbox to reliably hit crouching opponents, while still being difficult to jump over. With a full Revenge Gauge, this attack inflicts roughly 38% damage on an opponent with standard health.

TriviaEdit

  • As with many of Sagat's attacks, a distinct tiger's roar can be heard when this move is used.
