All appearances Arcade Stick S + Arcade Button Kick


Shootdown Backbreaker

Shootdown Backbreaker used against Yang in Ultra Street Fighter IV.

Executed by performing a Shoryuken motion? and pressing kick, Hugo leaps forward into the air and attempts to grab an airborne foe; if successful, Hugo will perform a rack hold on the opponent before falling to earth for an Argentine backbreaker drop, throwing them off afterwards.

The EX Special version grants invulnerability and has no startup time.


The opponent cannot quick stand after it, giving Hugo time to perform his taunt.[1] It is primarily used as an anti-air when the opponent jumps in, and is also useful for following up on an Ultra Throw.
