The Jaguar Tooth (ジャガートゥース, Jagaa Touusu) is one of Adon's special attacks, introduced in the Street Fighter Alpha series.

Input
All appearances Arcade Stick HCB + Arcade Button Kick

DescriptionEdit

Jaguar-Tooth

Jaguar Tooth hits Sagat in Super Street Fighter IV.

Executed by performing a half-circle backward motion and pressing kick, Adon jumps backwards to the edge of the screen and shoots down with his leg extended, striking the opponent. The distance of the attack depends on the strength of the kick button pressed. Light kick travels the shortest distance, while heavy kick travels the farthest distance, with medium kick being somewhere in the middle.

The EX Special version introduced in Super Street Fighter IV knocks down the opponent, travels nearly the entire length of the stage and has armor breaking properties, but is notably weaker than the non-EX versions of the attack. In addition, in the Arcade Edition update, the EX Jaguar Tooth jumps to the screen corner slightly slower than in SSFIV.

TacticsEdit

Due to its long startup time, the move will never completely catch the opponent by surprise, thus being best used to punish missed attacks or dizzy opponents; however, the fast wall jump is quite effective at getting Adon rapidly out of danger (and also adding to potentially punish a whiffed attack).
