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

Executed by charging backward then pressing forward and punch, Balrog executes a simple dash forward followed by a straight punch with his opposite fist, with an accompanying "rush of wind" background sound effect.

The speed and distance traveled are determined by the punch button pressed: the light punch version is fast, but covers only about a third of the stage's length; medium punch version reaches around half the stage in length, though the punch takes longer; and heavy punch version almost covers the whole stage, but takes the longest to punch.

The EX Special version introduced in Street Fighter IV has Balrog dash the entire stage length and gain Super Armor, but its default damage value remains unchanged.      


The light punch version is the hardest to predict, and is safer on block. The medium punch version is generally considered the best variation for its passable distance and decent punch lag. The heavy punch version, while naturally being the strongest version and considered the best for retreating foes, it is also the most predictable, and easily taken advantage of with a fairly quick reaction.

In addition, every variation can be easily countered with another move (specially projectiles), unless mitigated by the EX version's Super Armor.
