The Lynx Tail (リンクステイル Rinkusu Teiru?) is one of Elena's special attacks, introduced along with her in the Street Fighter III series.

Executed by performing a reverse Shoryuken motion? and pressing kick, Elena whips her lower body around

herself with flailing low kicks.

The number of times it can hit the opponent - and the speed at which it starts - is determined by the kick button pressed; light kick version is the fastest but hits once; medium kick version is slower but hits twice; and heavy kick version is the slowest but spins around twice, hitting four times.

The EX Special version introduced in Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact works the same as heavy kick version but executes faster and finishes with Elena performing a handstand (she swings her legs into a vertical position) which knocks the opponent away.


The move is a good choice on combos or to punish close-range whiffed attacks. Since it hits low, it works well on catching an opponent off-guard by surprise or simply knocking them down rapidly in order to buy time to mount other strategies. But the move itself is quite unsafe and leaves Elena widely vulnerable if evaded or blocked.
