The Spiral Arrow (スパイラルアロー Supairaru Aroo?), called the Cannon Drill (キャノンドリル Kyanon Doriru?) in certain games, is one of Cammy's and Decapre's special attacks in the Street Fighter series, introduced in Super Street Fighter II. The move is also usable by fellow Doll Juni in Street Fighter Alpha 3.

Cammy spiral arrow

Cammy's Spiral Arrow.

Cannon Drill

Spiral Arrow/Cannon Drill, as seen in Super Street Fighter II Turbo Revival.

Executed by performing a quarter-circle forward motion and pressing kick, Cammy/Juni lunges forward during the technique, spinning in a cork-screw manner with their feet leading towards the opponent, performing a short sliding kick along the ground as they land. Though the move targets the opponent's legs, the technique can be blocked from both standing and crouching positions.

The technique hits once and causes knockdown on hit. In some incarnations, Spiral Arrow will hit twice from the appropriate range. The move tends to be very unsafe on block, except when done at the maximum distance. In its EX Special version, introduced in Street Fighter IV, the "drilling" motion hits twice and passes under projectiles (excluding Sagat's Low Tiger Shot).

Certain crossovers allow Cammy to perform this move while airborne, with flame or 'ki' emphasis added.

Decapre's version of the move is executed with the same motion as Juni; however, she can only use it while jumping.

Tactics Edit

Spiral Arrow knocks the opponent as soon as the handle . The EX version can go through fireballs. Cammy can cancel Heavy Spiral Arrow with a Spin Drive Smasher.

Decapre can already use it before an DCM anti-air or after a Psycho Sting.

Juni can also use the Spiral Arrow in the air as Decapre.
