The Manchester Black is one of Eagle's special attacks, introduced in the original Street Fighter.

All appearances Arcade Stick QCB + Arcade Button Punch


Executed by performing a quarter-circle backward motion and pressing punch, Eagle extends his clubs and spins, similar to Zangief's Double Lariat. The stronger punch versions can move Eagle forward, with heavy punch lasting the longest.


Similar to the aforementioned Lariat, it can be used to bypass through certain moves with its invincibility in some installments. It can also be used for corner juggles, and due to its hitbox reaching on both sides of Eagle, a well-timed Manchester Black can stop incoming cross-ups.


  • In SNK's Art of Fighting and The King of Fighters series, the mobster character Mr. Big has a similar fighting style, named "Escrima", and even a technique named "Spinning Lancer", which acts very similar to Eagle's Manchester Black.
