The Hoyokusen (鳳翼扇? "Phoenix Wing Fans") is one of Chun-Li's special attacks, introduced as her second Super Art in Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike. It returns as a new move in Omega Mode in Ultra Street Fighter IV. The Houyoku Sen sees use as Chun-Li's Critical Art in Street Fighter V.

Executed by performing two quarter-circles forward and pressing kick, Chun-Li takes a large step forward and delivers the Hyakuretsukyaku, then takes another step forward and delivers another Hyakuretsukyaku with her other leg. She takes one final step forward and delivers a Tenkuukyaku, which knocks the opponent into the air.

Her Ultra Combo from the later Street Fighter IV series, the Hosenka, is a variation of this move.

In Marvel vs. Capcom 3, comic book tears of a pinkish color trail from her legs during the attack.

The attack itself does an amazing 37 hits, which is the second highest among Critical Arts in Street Fighter V, doing only less hits than the Kachofugetsu.


The attack has invincibility frames during the first large step forward, and as such can travel through projectiles and counterattack the projectile thrower. She can also jump cancel out of the last hit of the move, allowing her to follow her target into the air and add additional damage.

In most of the crossover games it appears in, due to more focus on aerial combat, the jump cancel is much more akin to a typical Super Jump cancel from a launcher. Taking this into note makes Chun-Li's aerial combos more rewarding.


  • In Street Fighter V, the Hoyokusen now deals a total of 37 hits if unblocked as a homage to the infamous "Evo Moment #37" from Evolution 2004, where Daigo Umehara successfully parried Justin Wong's Hoyokusen on zero vitality to win the match.
    • The Hoyokusen resembles its 3rd Strike incarnation if blocked, or if parried by Ryu or Alex.
