The Rising Jaguar (ライジングジャガー Raijingu Jagaa?) is one of Adon's special attacks, introduced in the Street Fighter Alpha series.

All appearances Arcade Stick S + Arcade Button Kick



Adon's Rising Jaguar hits Ryu in Super Street Fighter IV.

Executed by performing a Shoryuken motion? and pressing kick, Adon leaps forward and launches a thrusting knee attack.
Rising Jaguar

The move used against Sagat in the same game.

The direction and angle of Adon's jump are determined by the kick button pressed: the light kick version has only one knee thrust (two in Street Fighter Alpha 3), is fairly horizontal and can hit a standing opponent half a screen away. The medium kick version has two thrusts and is angled at roughly 45 degrees; and the heavy kick version also has two thrusts and performs a mostly vertical jump with the greatest height. The EX Special version introduced in Super Street Fighter IV has the angle of the medium kick variant, the distance and speed of the light one and the height of the heavy one; the second knee thrust hits twice as well.


Besides its obvious anti-air nature, this move is also great to end combos, and if dash-cancelled before Adon jumps, it allows him a multitude of powerful combos.
