Balrog hits Ryu's legs with a Dash Low Straight in Super Street Fighter IV.

Dash Lower

Dash Low Straight, as seen in Super Street Fighter II Turbo Revival.

Executed by charging backward and then pressing down-forward and punch, the attack is a simple dash forward followed by a legs-aimed straight low punch with his opposite fist, with an accompanying "rush of wind" background sound effect, that floors the opponent if it hits. If the punch button is held during the dash, the attack instead becomes a Dash Swing Blow (ダッシュスウィングブロー Dasshu Suwingu Buroo?), an overhead swipe punch.

The distance dashed, speed, strength and recovery time of the move are all determined by the punch button pressed, with lighter versions meaning lesser distance, speed and strength but also lower recovery time.

The EX Special version introduced in the Street Fighter IV games - as with most of his other moves - grants Super Armor during the dash for both punches.      


Both punches are valid options for closing in or ending combos rather fast. Though being mostly a rushdown technique, Balrog can choose either the former punch for a low hit or the latter one for an overhead hit, as this set of choices makes it easy to keep the opponent guessing if used well. The only downside is that Balrog's charge can be easily countered by another move (such as a projectile), unless mitigated by the EX version's Super Armor.
