The Neck Breaker (首折り Kubi Ori?) is one of Ibuki's special attacks, introduced in the Street Fighter III series.

Street Fighter III series Arcade Stick QCF + Arcade Button Punch
Street Fighter IV series Arcade Stick HCF + Arcade Button Punch



Ibuki snapping Ryu's neck in Super Street Fighter IV.

Ibuki slides along the ground toward her opponent; if she comes into contact with an opponent who isn't blocking low, she will jump behind them and twist their head. The opponent is sent flying and Ibuki hops to a safe distance.

How far the initial slide goes is determined by the punch button pressed; light punch version travels the least while heavy punch version travels the furthest, with medium punch in between.

The EX Special version evades projectiles, travels the whole screen extremely fast, twists the opponent's head three times in quick succession, and has Ibuki jump a much further distance away afterwards.

The Neck Breaker does not return in Street Fighter V, but the animation for it is now used as Ibuki's backward throw.


Due to its speed and flexible range, the move is great for quickly approaching a retreating opponent, causing confusion, or simply dealing solid damage.

This attack is Armor Break. EX Neck Breaker can be used after an attack to launch the opponent into the air.
