The Steel Rain is one of Rolento's special attacks, introduced as one of his Super Combos in the Street Fighter Alpha series, exclusive to his A-ISM Super Combo Gauge.

DescriptionEdit

Executed by performing two quarter-circle forward motions and pressing kick, Rolento balances his knives on the end of his club, then flicks the club to throw them in the air and off the screen. Less than a second later, the knives will reappear and fall to earth wherever the opponent happens to be. How many knives Rolento throws is determined by the level of the Super Combo; the more knives, the harder it is to dodge.

TacticsEdit

Since the opponent knows they have to block some falling knives in a second, they will usually be in no position to stop Rolento from pressing the advantage, allowing him a certain amount of free reign. The attack can also be used in concert with another of Rolento's Super Combos, the Take No Prisoner: if Rolento throws the knives up and then uses Take No Prisoner as they fall, the opponent will often be unable to block both.
