The Oicho Throw (大銀杏投げ, Ooichou Nage, "Great Gingko Throw"), also known by the misspelled name Ochio Nage, is one of E. Honda's special attacks, introduced in Super Street Fighter II Turbo. In Super Street Fighter IV, the move has a much more powerful version functioning as Honda's second Ultra Combo.

DescriptionEditExecuted by performing a half-circle backward motion (or a full circle motion for either side, depending on the game) and pressing punch, Honda attempts to grab the opponent; if successful, he picks the opponent up roughly, throws them to the ground and proceeds to perform a mini Sumo Smash on them.
The punch button used determines the range and damage of the move; light punch does the least damage, but has the longest reach, heavy punch has the shortest reach and does the most damage, and medium punch is in between. The EX Special version introduced in the Street Fighter IV series has a longer grab range than the light punch version; it also deals more damage during the "smash" part, and is invincible to throws for the first five frames.
The attack inflicts a sizable amount of damage and can provide a great advantage with its adjustable reach, allowing Honda to grab foes from a relatively safer distance.
- In its original appearance in Super Street Fighter II Turbo, some of the sprites for this move were incomplete; there was a complete lack of shading on Honda's midsection.
