The Ruffian Kick (ラフィアンキック Rafian Kikku?) is one of Cody's special attacks, introduced in Street Fighter Alpha 3.

All appearances Arcade Stick QCF + Arcade Button Kick



Cody's EX Ruffian Kick passes through Ryu's Hadoken in Super Street Fighter IV.

Executed by performing a quarter-circle forward motion and pressing kick, Cody steps forward and performs a sliding kick. The height of the kick is determined by the kick button pressed: the light kick version results in a low-hitting "stomp" kick; the medium kick version is a mid-hitting side kick; and the heavy kick version is a high kick which works as an anti-air move with good timing.This move has Armor Break properties

The EX Special introduced in Super Street Fighter IV is a nearly instantaneous light kick version which also passes through projectiles.

Tactics Edit

The heavy Ruffian Kick can be used as anti-air and can also be used to combo into Dead End Irony.
