Yamato Nadeshiko (大和ナデシコ?) is a character in the Street Fighter series who first appeared on the cover of Capcom's Secret File for the arcade version of Street Fighter Alpha 3. She later made her in-game debut in Street Fighter V as part of R. Mika's moveset.

Yamato's name is actually the Japanese phrase for the concept of the "perfect" or "ideal" woman.

BiographyEdit

AppearanceEdit

Nadeshiko has her black hair worn in a bob cut, with her fringes lying between her ears and face.

She wears a red and white leotard with red wrestling boots and white kneecaps with a red spot in the middle of each of them, looking similar to Hinomaru (the Japanese flag). Sticking to the Rising Sun motif, Nadeshiko has a red spot on the top of her leotard, going from her neck and down to her cleavage, as well as two red stripes at the bottom on either side, with the lower stripes going along the outside and the upper stripes going around her waist. She also wears white wrist straps on each hand and a grey patch on her left elbow, acting similar to a sleeve.

StoryEdit

A hot-blooded female wrestler from the IJWPW, Nadeshiko was first shown and named in the Secret File for Street Fighter Alpha 3; she and R. Mika were tag partners prior to the latter going solo during the events of the game.

She is also the sole daughter of a family that runs a long-established inn. Her hobbies include tea ceremonies, flower arrangement, and archery.[1]

She makes her first appearance in the games in Street Fighter V as part of R. Mika's moveset.

Yasha NadeshikoEdit

Yamato's Street Fighter V profile reveals that she has a secret wrestler persona known as Yasha Nadeshiko (夜叉撫子?), which surfaced soon after R. Mika decided to go solo. She hides her identity by painting her face instead of using a mask, and wears a different midriff-baring costume (though with the same color scheme). As Yasha, she is more prone to trash talk and being more rough in and out of the ring.[1]

GameplayEdit

As mentioned above, Yamato Nadeshiko is part of some of R. Mika's moves, including her special attacks and V-Triggers.

Nadeshiko, with Mika calling her to assist in attacks to extend combos and create mix-up situations to maintain offensive pressure.

If R. Mika performs the EX version of Rainbow Typhoon, Nadeshiko jumps in from behind the opponent after they bounce off of the stage wall. She wraps one arm around the back of the opponent's neck and drops to a seated position, smashing their face into the ground, similar to a Bulldog. If R. Mika performs the EX version of Brimstone, Nadeshiko drops from above and drives her elbow into the opponent's back, similar to an Elbow Drop.

If. R. Mika activates her first V-Trigger, Nadeshiko delivers a high flying attack at the opponent from different angles, depending which direction is pressed. Neutral results in Nadeshiko performing a body splash from above the opponent. Holding back has Nadeshiko perform a dropkick from the front, while holding forward has her perform a dropkick from behind the opponent. If R. Mika activates her second V-Trigger, Nadeshiko runs out from behind R. Mika and throw a steel chair at the opponent, hitting them multiple times to extend combos. She can also run up to the opponent and take two swings at them with the steel chair if R. Mika's second V-Trigger is held.

She also assists Mika in her Peach Assault, which is her Critical Art. After R. Mika grabs the opponent and performs a Suplex throw, Nadeshiko appears and catches the opponent in a headlock before throwing them airborne. As the opponent falls down head-first, R. Mika and Nadeshiko run towards each other, jump and launches themselves buttocks-first, sandwiching the opponent's head in between, before pulling them downward similar to a Brainbuster.
