The Bad Stone (バッドストーン Baddo Sutoon?) is one of Cody's special attacks, introduced in the Street Fighter Alpha series.

Input
All appearances Arcade Stick QCF + Arcade Button Punch (Punch hold to delay)

DescriptionEdit

Executed by performing a quarter-circle forward motion and pressing punch, Cody picks up a stone and throws it at the opponent. The player can also hold the punch button after performing the attack, which causes Cody to toss them in his hand, delaying the throw. It acts as a projectile for Cody, as it has the ability to stop other projectiles.

Once Cody has picked up the knife, the move changes to the Knife Throw. Unlike the stone, the knife travels linear and slightly faster, somewhat like a javelin, but is also slightly weaker.

The EX Special version introduced in Super Street Fighter IV has Cody perform a much faster throw; the stone hits twice, while the knife deals nearly triple the damage.

TacticsEdit

The throw can be delayed in order to trick an opponent into jumping for mistake, or to make the attack less predictable. The stone's downwards arc trajectory covers a long distance, making it great for hitting far and/or crouching opponents; the knife's speed and horizontal flight can be used to quickly poke at the opponent from afar or hit an airborne opponent (though this requires precise timing).
