DescriptionEditExecuted by performing a half-circle backwards motion and pressing kick, this move is essentially an anti-air Yoga Flame, as Dhalsim inhales deeply and breathes out a plume of fire diagonally upwards. The attack is designed as an anti-air and will not normally hit earthbound opponents unless they are exceedingly tall (e.g. Hugo, T. Hawk or Sagat).
The EX Special version introduced in the Street Fighter IV series has no startup time; the flame lasts longer, and hits twice for nearly twice the damage. The move also has extended vertical lower range.
The move can easily stop airborne attacks, and the EX Special's extra vertical reach also hits shorter standing opponents, making it a decent combo ender.
