The Patriot Sweeper (パトリオットスイーパー Patoriotto Suiipaa?) is one of Rolento's special attacks, introduced as his Super Art in Street Fighter X Tekken, returning as his first Ultra Combo in Ultra Street Fighter IV. The move combines his Patriot Circle move with his affinity for grenades.

DescriptionEditRolento hunches forward with a sadistic smile while pointing his staff towards his opponent. He then proceeds to perform his Patriot Circle; if the move connects properly, Rolento performs the full cycle of the move, the third part hitting only once but launching the opponent a short distance upwards.
Rolento then jumps up very high and throws his staff off; he smiles menacingly at the "camera" as he pulls off and throws a handful of grenades downwards. They fall surrounding the recovering opponent, who looks at them shocked. Immediately, the grenades glow and detonate simultaneously, inflicting severe damage to the defenseless opponent. Rolento then lands harmlessly on his feet and catches his staff as it falls back.
Patriot Circle can be used as a fairly reliable anti-air attack, and also does marginally high chip damage. However, it is somewhat lacking in overall damage, and hair a fairly long startup.
In addition to the usual methods, Rolento can combo into the Ultra Combo using an EX Patriot Circle or EX Stinger.
