The Rainbow Typhoon (レインボータイフーン Reinboo Taifuun?) is one of R. Mika's special attacks in Street Fighter V.

Street Fighter V Arcade Stick HCB+Arcade Button Punch  (Gain V-Skill effect) (Near opponent)

Description Edit


R. Mika swinging Cammy around during Rainbow Typhoon.

Executed by performing a half-circle backward motion and pressing punch, R. Mika grabs the opponent by the legs and pivots, spinning around to lift the opponent off of the ground. She releases the opponent on the other side, tossing them forward onto the ground after spinning around three times.

Performing the EX version of this move flies the opponent into the wall. As they bounce off of the wall,Yamato Nadeshiko jumps in from behind. She wraps one arm around the back of the opponent's neck and drops to a seated position, smashing their face into the ground.


This is a great command throw that does more damage and has longer range, compared to other command throw, Brimstone. It has a fast startup and inflicts more damage than any of R. MIka's normal throws. However, all of her command throws have a lot of recovery frames, leaving R. Mika defenseless if she whiffs.

Because it's a command grab, this move cannot be blocked. It is great for keeping the opponent guessing, as well as utilizing tick throws. With it's fast startup, she can use this move to break their defenses and deal a large chunk of damage. R. Mika can condition her opponent to constantly block her offensive pressure, and surprise them with her command throws.

The strength of the punch button determines the range and damage inflicted. The Light version does the least amount of damage, but has the longer range. The Heavy version has the shortest range, but inflicts the most damage. The EX version has the longer range and inflicts more damage, compared to her normal versions.

One of the disadvantages of this throw is that it throws the opponent backwards. It is not reccommended to use this move when R. Mika has the opponent positioned in the corner. However, d if the opponent has her cornered, she could grab them with Rainbow Typhoon and turn the tables. Using this move to take regain control of position can be the key to initiate pressure.



  • This move is arguably based on a popular professional wrestling move called the Giant Swing.
  • When the EX version is performed, Yamato Nadeshiko performs a Bulldog. It is sometimes refered as a facebuster.
