Vega splendid claw
The "floral ending" of Vega's Splendid Claw.
Executed by charging down-backward then pressing forward, backward, forward and all 3 kick buttons, Vega throws an "elegant" pose with his claw above his head ("Ready!") and performs a slide kick towards his opponent. If it lands, he follows up with a Scarlet Terror, while yelling hysterically ("Hyaaaaaaaaaaauw!"), which sends them sky high. Just as they are about to land, Vega fiercely strikes them in the back with his claw in a horizontal arc motion; at the same time, broken petals of roses are scattered all over the place. He then mocks the opponent as they fall ("What an ugly rose!").


This move does significantly less damage than his first Ultra Combo, but is also much easier to execute, and it is meant to catch opponents off guard from below, as opposed to his usual aerial attacks. The final hit will be significantly less powerful if Vega is not using his claw.
