The properties of the moves depend on the strength of the button used to execute it (with energy trailing Charlie's leg):
|Has Charlie sweep his leg across the opponent's body, sweeping the knees|
|Has Charlie sweep his leg across the opponent's body, slashing the chest.|
|Features Charlie kicking upwards into the air with one leg arcing outward from front to back.|
|EX||Features two heavy Sonic Scythes strung together.|
This is Charlie's new version of the Flash Kick.
Despite the visual similarities to Flash Kick, Sonic Scythe is a sub-par anti-air at best due to a total lack of invincibility on the Heavy version. Instead, the move is primarily used as a more damaging way to end combos, or as a raw punish. EX Sonic Scythe has invincibility beginning when Charlie becomes airborne, thus making it somewhat viable as an anti-air, although it begins to lose hits once the invincible period begins. Since it doesn't have any invincible frames, the Sonic Scythe is not subject to Crush Counter penalties if blocked; unlike other anti-air moves.
- The heavy Sonic Scythe resembles the Genocide Cutter, an attack used by the villain Rugal Bernstein, a character from SNK Playmore's The King of Fighters series.
