"Corkscrew!! It has the devastating power of a hurricane!"
—Dudley, Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact

In action

The Corkscrew Blow is Dudley's third Super Art in the Street Fighter III series.

Input
All appearances Quarter-circle forwardQuarter-circle forward + Punch

Description[edit | edit source]

Executed by performing two quarter-circle forward motions and pressing punch, Dudley delivers a straight punch with a twist, which creates a small cyclone around it. An opponent caught in this cyclone will receive significant damage.

In Super Street Fighter IV, this move is replaced with a more powerful variant, the Corkscrew Cross, that acts as Dudley's second Ultra Combo. The Corkscrew Blow can still be used, though only via landing the Cross on an airborne opponent without the first hit connecting.

The move later returns in the OMEGA Mode of Ultra Street Fighter IV as a separate move that costs two bars of the Super Combo Gauge to use.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

This choice of Super Art allows for three short stocks and thus a significant amount of EX Specials. The move is best used as a combo finisher, especially against airborne opponents.
