|All appearances||+ (or hold for an alternate attack)|
DescriptionEditExecuted 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.
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.
