The Mine Sweeper (マインスイーパー Main Suiipaa?) 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 returns with the same function in Ultra Street Fighter IV.
DescriptionEditExecuted by performing two quarter-circle backward motions and pressing punch, Rolento rolls backwards, 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 connect properly.
How far back he rolls and how many grenades he drops are determined by the level of the Super Combo in the Alpha series.
TacticsEditBecause the grenades 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 towards a waiting Rolento.
The attack is also effective against jumping opponents if timed correctly - an opponent who jumps in and/or attempts to cross-up Rolento) will be caught in a wave of explosions that will leave them vulnerable to any assortment of juggles.
