Executed by pressing down-forward and Heavy Kick, Sakura sidesteps toward her opponent and performs a high kick.

Tactics Edit


Despite the move's appearance, it is not an effective anti-air attack. It has a slower startup, compared to her other options. The range of Chin Buster Kick is also deceptively short. However, this move is great during her opponent's wake-up. It is +2 on block, making it one of Sakura's safest attacks. It is also +3 on hit, allowing her to link into her Crouching Light Punch for a follow-up combo.

Chin Buster Kick inflicts the same amount of damage and stun as her Furiko Upper. Italso forces her opponent into a standing position on hit. She can also cancel this unique attack into her V-Trigger. Whether this attack is blocked or hits the opponent, Sakura has tremendous frame advantage when canceling into V-Trigger.
