Super Combo

A Super Combo (スーパーコンボ Suupaa Konbo?) is a type of special move that can be performed only under a certain condition. They are usually a more powerful version of a special attack; a variation of a special attack or an altogether unique move, Super Combos are powerful string of attacks, and they strike an opponent multiple times, hence the "combo" term.

Introduced in Super Street Fighter II Turbo, the Super Combo eventually coins the term "Super Move" in many later fighting games (sometimes depending on the game, Supers would be coined through a universal name unique to the game and its series). The Super Combo itself has also been featured in later games, such as Street Fighter III (in the form of selectable Super Arts) and Street Fighter IV. Street Fighter IV also introduced a more powerful version of the Super Combo, the Ultra Combo, which in turn were somewhat predated by the Street Fighter EX series' Meteor Combos. In Japanese, the most common term for a "Super" tends to be the "Super Special Move/Attack" (超必殺技, Chou Hissatsuwaza, "Super Finisher Technique" or "Super Sure-Killing Art").

The term Hyper Combo in the some of the crossover series games has also been derived off of this term.


Each player has a Super Combo Gauge at the bottom of the screen which is filled up while the character performs their basic and special techniques against the opponent. When the Super Combo gauge is filled completely, the player will then be able to perform their Super Combo technique by inputting the specific command, which will then reset the Super Combo gauge back to zero. If an opponent is defeated with a Super Combo, then the background will flash red and yellow.

In Super Street Fighter II Turbo, the Street Fighter Alpha series and some crossover games, when using these moves, the fighter will leave blue afterimages.
