The Spinning Bird Kick (スピニングバードキック Supiningu Bādo Kikku?) is one of Chun-Li's original attacks in the Street Fighter II series. It debuts along with Chun Li's other special move, the Hyakuretsukyaku, in Street Fighter II. This move also appears in Street Fighter: The Storytelling Game.[1]

Chun-Li jumps up, feet first in the air, and does a split (up until Street Fighter III: Third Strike, she started the move with a quick handstand to get in position). She then twirls her upside-down body and attacks, with her legs like helicopter blades. It is similar to Ryu and Ken's Tatsumaki Senpukyaku; if the opponent is standing, Chun-Li's feet will repeatedly hit the opponent in the face until the attack ends. Its controller input depends on whatever game Chun-Li was in, as shown above. A few games allow Chun-Li to perform this move in the air.

The EX Special version introduced in Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike does not move forward, instead remaining stationary (not unlike a Shinku Tatsumaki Senpukyaku) and acting more as an anti-air reversal attack. If the opponent is standing just close enough to be hit by the move, they will be sucked in a vacuum-like effect for additional hits.
