The Mine Sweeper is one of Rolento's special attacks, introduced as one of his Super Combos in the Street Fighter Alpha series, exclusively to his A-ISM Super Combo Gauge, and will return with the same function in the upcoming Ultra Street Fighter IV.

Executed by performing two quarter-circle backward motions and pressing punch, Rolento rolls backwards as he usually does, however dropping grenades as he does so. These grenades explode almost immediately, in a wave which juggles the opponent towards from one explosion to another, should the first explosion connects properly.
TacticsEditBecause the bombs land only along the path Rolento rolls, the attack must usually be performed at close range to the opponent in order to hit with them. Even if the opponent blocks, the force of the explosions will usually push them forwards, toward a standing Rolento, who will usually be ready with an attack of some sort.
Another benefit of the attack is that it's effective against jumping opponents if timed correctly - an opponent who jumps in (especially those who attempt to cross-up Rolento) will suddely find him standing far away and themselves landing on a wave of explosions. How far back he rolls and how many mines he drops are determined by the level of the Super Combo.
