""You can't run!""
—Urien when using the Violence Knee Drop

The Violence Knee Drop is one of Urien's special attacks, introduced in the Street Fighter III series.

All appearances Arcade Stick CDU + Arcade Button Kick


Executed by holding down and then pressing up and kick, Urien jumps straight up in the air, performs a backflip, and then comes down at a forward-bearing angle, knees-first. The distance Urien goes forward when dropping is determined by the kick button pressed, with light kick going the least distance, heavy kick going the farthest, and medium kick somewhere in between.


The attack usually functions as an overhead, though if spaced correctly, it will hit low.[1] It is also useful for avoiding projectiles while simultaneously attacking. The EX Special version hits twice, deals significantly more stun, and is significantly quicker.[1]
