DescriptionEdit

Executed by performing two quarter-circle forward motions and pressing punch (in the Street Fighter III series) or all 3 punch buttons (in the Street Fighter IV series), Yang adopts a snake-style kung fu stance 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.

Street Fighter III seriesEdit

Yang will immediately finish the combo by dashing past the opponent with a forward leaning hand thrust, hitting multiple pressure points and inflicting sizable damage.

Street Fighter IV seriesEdit

Raishin Mahhaken

"Raishin... Mahhaken!"

Yang follows the upward swipe with a smaller Tourou Zan that leaves him on the far side of the opponent, followed by a vertical Tourou Zan, a jumping, flipping hand slash which hits multiple times, then another Tourou Zan ("Raishin...") that leaves him on the side he started on ("...Mahhaken!"), and finally the dashing pressure point strike from the Super Art version which sends Yang straight through the opponent before they fly back a few moments later in a similar manner to Gen's Zan'ei ("Looks like you couldn't avoid that one!").

TacticsEdit

Compared to most other Super Arts in the Street Fighter III series, the move's setups are limited - only a juggling Byakko Soshoda or a Zenpou Tenshin can be used to combo into the move. Conversely, this Super Art is relatively safer on block.

In 2nd Impact, the move has two stocks and still inflicts decent damage, and is somewhat easier to setup via jump-in attacks. In 3rd Strike, however, the number of stocks was reduced to one, and comes out slower, requiring more precise timing to connect with combos; in exchange, the move inflicts more damage.

In Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, setup options include an EX Byakko Soshoda, Tourouzan, and a Zenpou Tenshin (with significant damage scaling). It also breaks armor, and has some use as an anti-air, since only the first hit is needed to ensure the entire move hits.
