The Habanero Back Dash (アバネロバックダッシュ Abanero Bakku Dasshu?) is one of El Fuerte's special attacks, introduced in the Street Fighter IV series.

DescriptionEdit

Executed by performing a quarter-circle backward motion and pressing punch, El Fuerte quickly runs away from the opponent, toward the edge of the screen. If he reaches the edge of the screen, the attack becomes the Habanero Dash. The EX Special version grants him Super Armor and causes the ground to shake as he runs.

What happens next is determined by what button is pressed: El Fuerte will follow up with any of a number of specialized finishes, making the Dash wildly unpredictable for an opponent and difficult (though far from impossible) to block, dodge or counter reliably. The Back Dash is also useful for simply getting around the screen quickly. The various attacks are as follows:

Sudden StopEdit

Pressing light punch will execute a Sudden Stop (急停止 Kyuu Teishi?): as the name suggests, El Fuerte will simply stop dead in his tracks.

Tostada PressEdit

Tostada-Press

Tostada Press.

Pressing medium punch will execute a Tostada Press (トスターダプレス Tosutaada Puresu?): El Fuerte will leap backward into the air toward the opponent and perform a body slam downwards. It is a high attack and bypasses crouching blocks. Worth noting is the fact that the attack is identical to the Propeller Tortilla (detailed below) until the point where El Fuerte touches his opponent, whereupon he "pancakes" them. This indistinguishability works in El Fuerte's favor, as an opponent who crouches in the belief that a Propeller Tortilla is imminent will instead be slammed by a Tostada Press. However, if the opponent blocks high, the Press will not connect (however a Propeller Tortilla will grab a standing opponent, meaning that an opponent MUST be able to predict the attack in order to block it). The only reliable way to avoid this dilemma is to dodge the attack instead of blocking.

Propeller TortillaEdit

Pressing heavy punch will execute a Propeller Tortilla (プロペラトルティーヤ Puropera Torutiiya?): El Fuerte will leap backward into the air and come down towards the opponent, landing in a "piggyback" position on their shoulders. He will then spin around the opponent at speed, lifting the opponent into the air like a helicopter. He then lets go and lets the opponent fall to the ground. Worth noting is the fact that the attack is identical to the Tostada Press until the point where El Fuerte touches his opponent, whereupon he grabs their shoulders. This indistinguishability works in El Fuerte's favor, as an opponent who blocks high in the belief that a Tostada Press is imminent will instead be caught be a Fajitas Buster. However, if the opponent crouches, the Buster will miss (however a Tostada Press will hit a crouching opponent, meaning that an opponent MUST be able to predict the attack in order to block it). The only reliable way to avoid this dilemma is to dodge the attack instead of blocking.

Picadillo JumpEdit

Pressing any kick button will execute a Picadillo Jump (ピカディーリョジャンプ Pikadiiryo Janpu?): El Fuerte will jump in the direction of the wall at a great height; he is then free to Wall Jump toward the opponent.
