The Slash Elbow is one of Alex's special attacks, introduced in the Street Fighter III series.

All appearances Arcade Stick CBArcade Stick Right + Arcade Button Kick


Executed by holding back, then pressing forward and kick, Alex rushes forward towards his opponent and swings his elbow at them. The distance travelled is determined by the strength of the kick button pressed; the heavy kick version can reach an opponent an entire screen away.

The EX Special hits twice, comes out considerably faster, and is safe on block.


The move is likely inspired by the elbow smash, which is a very common attack in professional wrestling, since striking with a clenched fist is illegal in most matches.
