The Tatsumaki Zankukyaku (竜巻斬空脚, Tatsumaki Zankuukyaku, "Tornado Slashing Air Leg"), also known as the Hurricane Scythe Kick, is a version of the Tatsumaki in the Street Fighter series. It is utilized by Akuma, Evil Ryu and Oni.

Input
All appearances Arcade Stick QCB + Arcade Button Kick

DescriptionEdit

Like quite a few of Akuma's attacks, it has the properties of Ryu and Ken's Tatsumaki Senpukyaku. It hits multiple times like Ken's version, but is as strong as Ryu's version and faster, albeit harder to control. The EX Special version has Akuma spin in place, also similar to Ryu's.

In some games, particularly the Marvel vs. Capcom series, the attack takes on lightning-elemental properties.

In the arcade version of Street Fighter: The Movie, the Tatsumaki Zankukyaku is fire-elemental, much like Ken's Shoryuken.

TacticsEdit

A common tactic is to followup a light Tatsumaki Zankukyaku juggle with a heavy Goshoryuken, especially in the corner.
