The Yoga Flame (ヨガフレイム Yoga Fureimu?) is one of Dhalsim's special attacks, introduced along with him in Street Fighter II.

Yoga Flame in Street Fighter IV.

Executed by performing a half-circle backwards motion and pressing punch, Dhalsim inhales deeply and breathes a large mass of flame that burns the opponent. In early Street Fighter II the original input was a half-circle forward motion which overlapped with the usual projectile input for Yoga Fire, which later resulted in the input change.

The flame duration is determined by the punch button pressed.

The EX Special version introduced in the Street Fighter IV series has no startup time and a longer horizontal range akin to the version from the Marvel crossovers; it hits twice and deals nearly twice the damage.


This move is ideal for counters and combo finishers as well as keeping opponents away.
