- "My Raishin-Mahhaken is formidable when used properly...."
- —Yang in Street Fighter 3: Second Impact
|Street Fighter III series||Super Art I||+|
|Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition||Ultra Combo I||+|
Executed by performing two quarter-circle forward motions and pressing punch (in the Street Fighter III series) or all 3 punch buttons (in Super Street Fighter IV), Yang adopts a snake-style kung fu stance ("I'll show you!") then dashing forward with a hand thrust. If this connects, he will twist his hand and swipe it upwards, knocking the opponent up into the air slightly.
What happens next depends on the version. In the Super Art, he will immediately finish the combo by dashing past the opponent with a Tourou Zan movement, hitting multiple pressure points as he does and inflicting sizable damage. This final dash can be compared to the Zan'ei art that his martial arts teacher, Gen, uses.
In the Ultra Combo, he follows the upward swipe with a smaller Tourou Zan that leaves him on the far side of the opponent, then a vertical Tourou Zan, then a jumping, flipping hand slash which hits multiple time, another Tourou Zan ("Raishin...") which leaves him on the original side that he started on ("...Mahhaken!"), and finally the dashing pressure point strike from the Super Art version ("Looks like you couldn't avoid that one!").
