Executed by performing a Shoryuken motion? and pressing kick, the attack is a jumping, high-aiming splits kick, similar in function to Cammy's Cannon Spike. The height reached and startup time are determined by the kick button used.
The EX Special version introduced in Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact is similar to the heavy kick version but executes faster; in Ultra Street Fighter IV, the move also breaks armor and hits four times.
The attack is extremely fast and works well as an anti-air, though it is easy to be hit out of.
