Description[edit | edit source]
Ryu releases a Hadoken that vanishes from sight, reappearing a split second in front of the opponent, and promptly detonates with explosive force. The Baku Hadoken can also be performed in mid-air. While the Baku Hadoken is charging, Ryu floats very slowly to the ground, which sometimes makes it OTG-capable. Thanks to its instantaneous speed, Baku Hadoken can be used to strike right through a zoning opponent's defenses and hit past other fireballs or projectiles.
