The Senpukyaku (旋風脚 Senpuukyaku?, "Whirlwind Leg") is a unique attack used by Ryu, Akuma and Evil Ryu. It only appears in the Street Fighter Alpha, Street Fighter EX and Marvel vs. Capcom series. In Street Fighter EX Plus, Cycloid Beta can also use it.

Yun and Yang also possess a move with the same name in all of their appearances, though it is completely different.

DescriptionEdit

Both are executed by moving forward and pressing medium kick.

Ryu and AkumaEdit

The user leaps forward in an arc with an outward spin kick aimed at the opponent's head, in a similar motion to a Tatsumaki. It is most likely the precursor to the said Tatsumaki series of techniques as it is very similar in motion, though without the "ki tornado" that allows the user to repeatedly soar through the air with successive spins.

In its appearance as one of Akuma's unique attacks in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Akuma flies more straight in the air as opposed to in an arc.

Yun and YangEdit

The user leaps an at arc and performs an inward swing kick that hits overhead.

TacticsEdit

The leap allows the move to go over most low attacks, as well as being a primary tool for both Ryu and Akuma to leap at opponents to close the distance with a quick-recovering attack to stuff pokes with. The Lee brothers' Senpukyaku also makes acts as a solid mixup tool.

However, both different versions are plagued with slow start-up, which makes them very easy to beat out when not spaced properly against faster pokes, which also makes them risky tools to use in neutral.

Other AppareancesEdit

  • The attack is also mentioned in the official profile of BelleStarmon, a Digimon based on Belle Starr, a notorious American outlaw.
