The Forbidden Shoryuken (禁じ手・昇龍拳, Kinjite Shouryuuken, "Forbidden Rising Dragon Fist") is a special attack that made its debut in the Street Fighter Alpha series. It usually appears as the result of a 'missed' Shin or Metsu Shoryuken by Ryu.
DescriptionEditThe Forbidden Shoryuken is simply a multi-hitting Shoryuken, with Gouken's version delivering the most at eight. These give the user the opportunity to utilize it as an anti-air of sorts, especially if they should mistime their Super/Ultra Combo.
The move possesses a significant recovery, much longer than that of a Fierce Shoryuken, making the move very punishable.
