The Ressen Chou (烈尖頂 Violent Tipped Peak?) is one of Karin's special attacks, introduced along with her in Street Fighter Alpha 3.

All appearances Arcade Stick RS + Arcade Button Punch, Arcade Button Punch for a second blow (or Arcade Stick DR + Arcade Button Punch, Arcade Button Punch during Guren Ken)


Executed by either performing a reverse Shoryuken motion? motion and pressing punch (or by pressing down-forward and punch during any of Guren Ken's two hits), Karin rushes forwards in a semi-crouched stance and launches up to 2 advancing elbow strikes targeting the opponent's midsection. The second attack is also known as the Ressen Chouchuu (烈尖頂肘 Violent Tipped Peak Elbow?).


Precise timing is needed for the second strike, making the move quite difficult to combo into, as it must be done very fast to connect. However, the attack does decent damage, and the strikes can be delayed to snuff attempted counters via frame trapping.
