"Tiger, Genocide! (タイガー、ジェノサイド! Taigaa, Jenosaido!?)"

The Tiger Genocide (タイガージェノサイド Taigaa Jenosaido?) is one of Sagat's Super Combos. It was introduced in Super Street Fighter II Turbo.

Executed by performing two half-circle forward motions and pressing kick (or punch in Super Street Fighter II Turbo), Sagat starts with a Tiger Knee, and finishes with a Tiger Uppercut that knocks down the enemy while inflicting a lot of damage. The Level 3 version from the Street Fighter Alpha series uses two Tiger Uppercuts.

The Street Fighter IV series introduced a more powerful variant as one of Sagat's Ultra Combos, which may have been inspired by the Level 3 Tiger Genocide seen in the Alpha series.

Tiger Genocide returns in Street Fighter X Tekken as Sagat's Super Art. At the end of the Super Art, Sagat throws in the opposite-hand flaming Tiger Uppercut that he performs at the end of the Tiger Destruction Ultra Combo from the Street Fighter IV series.


Prior to Street Fighter IV, it has temporary invincibility during its startup, which makes it quite useful to put opponents back on the defensive.

The move can act as an anti-air, as a punish, and within combos as a combo ender in some games. In the Street Fighter IV series, it can be used after a crumpling Focus Attack or as a juggle.


  • In Capcom vs. SNK 2, along with Rugal's Genocide Cutter and Genocide Heaven, Sagat's Tiger Genocide was censored in the North American version of the game as Tiger Destroyer (along with any dialogue that involved yelling out "Genocide! being replaced with their grunts).
