Air Attack Cancel

Air attacks can be canceled immediately after they hit by pressing the special-move button just like some other attacks can. You can create powerful combos like Grab + Up Throw + Up Air +Shoryuken.

Up Throw Can Be Multi Targeted

This move kicks a grabbed opponent straight upward. As Ryu brings his leg back down, he'll hit anyone unlucky enough to be in the way.

Forward Air Attack for Shield Breaker

Hitting an enemy with Ryu's foot has higher launch power, while his upper leg is perfect for shield breaking. It's a good move for combos.
