DescriptionEditExecuted by repeatedly pressing any punch button, Blanka rapidly crouches and conducts several thousand volts of electricity through his body, zapping opponents that come in contact. The strength, horizontal range, and duration of the move depends on the strength of the punch button pressed.
Once the move is activated, Blanka cannot move until the move ends (by simply stopping the button tapping), making it a close-up defensive move. The move also works as an anti-air, and can easily shut down cross-ups.
There is a very small spot on the ground, roughly below his head and hands, where the opponent can strike Blanka (with the least risk of being electrocuted) and interrupt his attack. Also, while this electric defense works fairly well against physical contact, it does not shield Blanka against projectile attacks.
- This is the only special attack in Blanka's arsenal that does not require a charge motion.
