The Big Bang Typhoon (ビッグバンタイフーン Biggu Ban Taifuun?) is one of Rufus's special attacks, first introduced as his second Ultra Combo in Super Street Fighter IV and later appearing as his Super Art in Street Fighter X Tekken. It is a much more powerful and advanced version of his Galactic Tornado.

DescriptionEditExecuted by performing two quarter-circle backward motions and pressing all 3 punch buttons, Rufus swings his arms in air in a strange martial pose and spins 360 degrees at an extremely high speed, delivering lightning-fast palmstrikes at the same time. Upon the combo's end, he tops it off by performing another odd pose, this one being very similar to his EX Galactic Tornado palmstrike pose.
The attack itself is very useful for Rufus in terms of getting past projectile users, as Rufus can close in on them, and pull the opponent towards him from a distance. It can be used as an anti-air, and also has armor breaking properties.
In Street X Tekken this attack has more functionality at the expense of doing less damage overall. It can be used in combos much more easily. It is one of the best anti airs in the game, a player can even react to a jump in, use Cross Assault and immediately follow up with Big Bang Typhoon in an incoming Arial opponent.
There are two versions of this attack in Street X Tekken, the first one is if it hits a grounded opponent, this version does some hits before the cinematic. The anti air version goes straight into the cinematic.
