The Tsumuji (? "Whirl") is one of Ibuki's special attacks, introduced along with her in the Street Fighter III series.

All appearances Arcade Stick QCB + Arcade Button Kick (followup with Arcade Button Kick; Arcade Button Kick or Arcade-Stick-Down + Arcade Button Kick on third kick)


Executed by performing a quarter-circle backward motion and pressing kick, Ibuki performs two spinning heel kicks in quick succession. The speed and damage are determined by the kick button pressed: light kick version inflicts the most damage and executes the quickest; medium kick version is second quickest and inflicts the least damage; and heavy kick version is the slowest and inflicts the second most damage.

The EX Special version always kicks four times, and the last three can alternate between high and low depending on whether the player is holding downwards during the respective kick.


The apparent imbalance in favor of the light kick version is counterbalanced by the fact that the medium and heavy kick versions can followup with a third kick if kick is pressed again. This third kick is the same as the others, except that it can be low if the player holds downwards at the same time.

Tsumuji's options can be used to generally create guessing games for the opponent, reducing their chances of evading or blocking correctly.
