"Step aside!"

The Crash President is one of G's unique attacks, introduced in Street Fighter V.

Description[edit | edit source]


Executed by pressing forward and Heavy Kick, G spins toward his opponent, lifts up his leg up and brings it leg downward, hitting them with the heel of his foot. If no directional input or button is pressed after the throw, G tips his hat before dropping back in his stance.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

As an overhead attack, the main purpose is to break through the defenses of an opponent who insists on crouch guarding (as the attack must be blocked from a standing position). The draw back causes considerable delay, and this attack can easily be countered by an aggressive opponent by hitting G before he throws it.

Like most of G's unique attacks, this attack has decent range and inflicts good damage. It is one of the furthest reaching overhead moves in Street Fighter V. Despite being -7 on block, it can be difficult to punish if properly spaced. If his opponent is low on health, he can use Crash President to catch them off-guard and potentially secure the round.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The animation and "slash" effect of G's legs during this attack appear very similar to one of the Tekken character Hwoarang's attacks in Street Fighter X Tekken
