The Tiger Knee (タイガー二ー, Taigaa Nii), also known as "Tiger Thrust ", "Tiger Crash" or "Tiger Knee Crush" (タイガー二ークラッシュ, Taigaa Nii Kurasshu) in Street Fighter IV, is one of Sagat's special attacks, introduced along with him in the Street Fighter II series.

DescriptionEditExecuted the same way as his Tiger Uppercut (but inputting a diagonal half-circle forward motion in the early Street Fighter II series) with pressing a kick button instead, Sagat jumps forward and rams into the opponent with his knee, hitting twice.
The EX Special version hits two times at its apex (allowing the full move to score up to three hits) and recovers faster.
The move is based on an actual Muay Thai move (Flying Knee) and, in the original Street Fighter, it actually resembled a realistic Flying Knee attack.
