Ryu performs a stationary Tatsumaki that via the ki-tornado increase to have a vacuum effect, as its name indicates, and can hit the opponent multiple times.

The visuals of the attack often vary in most games; in the original games, there is a slight amount of energy below Ryu during the attack indicating the vacuuming hitbox, which is visually emphasized more in the Marvel vs. Capcom games (while having no visuals in other games).

In Marvel vs. Capcom 3, instead a blue ki storm emanates from around Ryu, while in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, it is instead a fierce whirlwind.


The vacuum effect works via an invisible pull boundary that can drag a foe within said boundary closer, rendering them vulnerable in the process (thus extending the move's range).
