The Crimson Terror (クリムゾンテラー Kurimuzon Teraa?) is one of Vega's special attacks, introduced in Street Fighter V.

Street Fighter V Arcade Stick QCF+Arcade Button Kick



Executed by performing a quarter-circle forward motion and pressing kick, Vega launches into a forwards roll that hits the opponent multiple times. On the last roll, Vega full extends himself, hitting the opponent with a somersault kick.


The Crimson Terror is mainly used to end combos. The kick button used determines how far his roll travels. The Light version covers the shortest distance. Not only it has the fastest startup, but it also leaves Vega very close to the opponent. However, just like the Medium Version, it does not result in a knock down. The Heavy Version, on the other hand, does lead to a knock down. It also covers the furthest distance, giving Vega an effective tool to carry the opponent into the corner.

The EX version has the hit count increased and does the most damage. It also covers the further distance compared to the Heavy version. The EX version also leads to a knock down, allowing Vega to close the distance to continue the offensive pressure. Besides the EX version, the Crimson Terror will leave Vega unsafe if the opponent blocks it.
