The Mallet Smash (マレットスマッシュ Maretto Sumasshu?) is one of Elena's special attacks, introduced along with her in the Street Fighter III series.

Input
All appearances Arcade Stick HCB + Arcade Button Punch

DescriptionEdit

Executed by performing a half-circle backward motion and pressing punch, Elena cartwheels briefly into the air and brings her leading foot down on the opponent.

The EX Special version introduced in Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact swings faster and higher in air, has less recovery time and hits twice; in Ultra Street Fighter IV, the EX has no knockdown like the standard versions, but has the advantage of leaving the defenseless opponent "open" for a longer time.

TacticsEdit

The cartwheel goes over low attacks and is an overhead, making it useful for getting at a crouching opponent. When EX, the longer "openness" caused on the opponent's stance allows much more combo possibilities for Elena.
