The Opening Dagger is one of Necalli's Unique Attacks, appearing in Street Fighter V.

All appearances Arcade Stick DR + Arcade-Button-HPunch


Necalli hops a short distance and performs an overhead slash on the opponent. It is similar to the universal overheads found in the Street Fighter III series.


Necalli's overhead attack is best used in mixups. It can also be used as a 'wake-up call' against opponents who block excessively in a crouching position. It also functions as a Crush Counter. The Opening Dagger does decent damage and has excellent range.



'Opening Dagger' is a reference to the Tecpatl, a ceremonial knife used by Aztec priests in sacrificial rituals. Human sacrifice played a paramount role in the Aztec society to a point where it was believed the Sun requires human blood to rise everyday.
