The Tetsuzanko (鉄山靠, Tetsuzankou, "Iron Mountain Leaning") is one of Yun's special attacks, introduced in the Street Fighter III series.

All appearances Arcade Stick S + Arcade Button Punch


Executed by performing a Shoryuken motion? and pressing punch, Yun perform a crouching turn-step forward and charge-leans the opponent with back of his shoulder.

How far the turn-step travels, how much damage the attack does, and how much startup and recovery time the attack requires all depend on the strength of the punch button pressed: light punch version turns on the spot and does the least damage, but executes and recovers almost instantaneously; heavy punch version travels about two-thirds of the screen and does the most damage, but takes the longest to begin and recover; and medium punch version is a balance between the two.

The EX Special version turns faster than light punch, travels the length of the screen, and hits twice for as much damage as the heavy punch version.

Origin and other appearancesEdit

The tie shan kao (贴山靠) is a technique used in Hakkyoku-ken/Bajiquan (八極拳). Miyako Arima from Melty Blood also possesses this attack, but it is a command normal instead. She can followup with an upward punch similar to the ending of Yun's You Hou attack. Kirei Kotomine of the Capcom-published Fate/Unlimited Codes also can perform this technique as a special attack.

The exact same move is used by the characters Bahn, Akira Yuki and Bayonetta in the SEGA games Fighting Vipers, Virtua Fighter and Bayonetta, respectively.


Each version of the attack can allow a fireball to pass safely overhead if timed correctly.
