Executed by performing a quarter-forward circle motion and pressing kick, E. Honda simply tosses salt in the opponent's direction. The move is designed as a "taunt attack" that does minimal damage, similar to Dudley's rose-throwing taunt, which also gained its own move. However, if it is used to KO a opponent, the game will treat it as a Super Combo Finish, complete with the background effect.
The move was likely adapted from E. Honda's match intro animation in Street Fighter Alpha 3, and pays homage to the sumo ritual of salt tossing, often performed as a means of purification (specifically called "shubatsu"), as both the ritual and sport are rooted in the Japanese Shinto religion.
