The Abi Scissor is one of Abigail's unique attacks, introduced in Street Fighter V.

Executed by pressing down-back and Heavy Kick, Abigail props himself on his hands and extends his legs out toward his opponent, kicking their legs from underneath.

Tactics Edit

This attack is one of Abigail's newest moves. It gives him a second sweeping option. This move can also be cancelled into Abigail's V-Trigger. Like most characters' sweeps, it hits low and has priority over Light and Medium normals. It also has good range and results in a knockdown on hit. Obviously, it is very unsafe on block. Even if used at maximum range, his opponent can still punish Abigail.

Abigail's regular sweep hits the opponent twice. The first hits hits high, while the other hits low. Additionally, he rolls forward during this move to continue pressure. Conversely, Abi Scissor keeps Abigail in the same position. It also inflicts less damage and the same amount of stun. While this attack can be use to catch his opponent off-guard, it doesn't outclass his regular sweep.
