Executed by performing a quarter-circle backward motion and pressing kick, Abel leaps forward into the air in a sideways position, spinning as he does. He then brings his legs crashing down on his opponent. It is useful mainly against grounded opponents, but also works as an anti-air. The distance travelled and the speed are both determined by the kick button pressed.
The EX Special version travels most of the screen, has nearly no startup time and acts as an overhead attack.
