The Love Me Tender (ラブミーテンダー Rabu Mii Tendaa?) is one of Poison's special attacks, introduced in Street Fighter X Tekken.

This move is based on her appearance in Final Fight, where Poison and Roxy would perform an acrobatic flip kick.

Input (all appearances)
Initial: Love Me Tender Arcade Stick QCB + Arcade Button Kick
Followup: Poison Rana Arcade Button Kick


Love Me Tender

Love Me Tender hitting Cammy in Ultra Street Fighter IV.

Executed by performing a quarter-circle backward motion and pressing kick, Poison leaps forward and performs a flipping axe kick. Poison can follow this move up with a reverse Frankensteiner called the Poison Rana.

The light version traverses a distance of little ahead of Poison. The average release through a distance of about 15% of the screen. The heavy version through half of the screen. The EX version through the same distance from the heavy version.

The EX Special version has the initial strike hit twice, and its followup throw deals twice the damage.


The move can break armor, and is an overall good choice for both evading ground or mid-height attacks and closing distances through the air, though Poison risks being intercepted. The follow-up throw is unavoidable if it connects, giving the move solid damage output. This attack can be used after a EX Whip of Love or a Heavy Aeolus Edge.
