The Megaton Press (メガトンプレス Megaton Puresu?) is one of Hugo's special attacks, introduced as his second Super Art in the Street Fighter III series. It returns as his second Ultra Combo in Ultra Street Fighter IV.

To execute in the Street Fighter III series, two Hadoken motions and kick.

Hugo 431


Executed by performing two quarter-circle forward motions and pressing punch, Hugo jumps forward into the air, attempting to grab an airborne opponent; if successful, he bearhugs them and performs several moonsault spins in the air before dropping them head-first and crashing down to earth on top of them.

In Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, Megaton Press does almost the same damage as the Gigas Breaker, but comes in two stocks.


The attack can be used in exactly the same way as a Shootdown Backbreaker (i.e. as an anti-air or as a juggle, one example being a follow-up to an Ultra Throw)[1].

In Ultra Street Fighter IV, the Megaton Press can be juggled into from a variety of Hugo's special attacks, including his Ultra Throw, Giant Palm Bomber, and even a Monster Lariat if it hits an airborne opponent.
