Description[edit | edit source]
Executed by performing a quarter-circle motion and pressing the tag buttons (medium kick and medium punch), Cross Arts require a full Cross Gauge to use; if they land successfully, the opponent is knocked over to the user's tag partner, who then performs their Super Art. Despite being different for each fighter, most of the Cross Arts require the user to be close to the opponent.
Many of the Street Fighter cast's Cross Arts are based somewhat off Super Combos/Ultra Combos/etc. from past appearances, though they are usually not named in-game, and do not appear on the in-game input lists.
Tactics[edit | edit source]
An advantage that Cross Arts have over Super Arts - aside from the obvious higher damage output - is that they immediately negate any and all provisional damage an opponent has if the move lands successfully.
All Cross Arts do the same damage (150), the difference of usefulness depends from character to character, some like Ibuki's Yami Shigure works well with her groundbounces and target combos but does not work that well in juggles, while others like Marduk's only is useful in grounded combos.
It is worth noting that unlike Ultra Combos, Cross Arts only take 1 point off the damage scaling chart. It is worth buffering normals with high amounts of active frames into Cross Art as it will still do 100% damage compared to the 80% of Ultra Combos do when they have one hit previously.
In Scramble Battle, Cross Arts reset the position of all fighters. The partner of the ally who used the Cross Art and the victim of the initial hit both stay in the screen in the way the followup Super Art would leave them. Then the character who initially did the Cross Art comes running in similar to how allies run in during Tags. Then the ally of the hit character comes running in. Both characters that come running in are fully vulnerable to hits and while the ally of the attacking character is very unlikely to be hit due to the Super Art knockdown the ally of the hit character can be further hit when coming in.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- There is a glitch (seen in gallery below) that works specifically in this order: players first use Blanka's Cross Art with Ogre as his team mate, and then use the former's Cross Art against Kuma. Ogre's followup will whiff and Kuma will be frozen in place.
- During Zangief's Cross Art there is an oversight where Zangief tosses his opponent belly up, but in the next frame where his opponent is shown approaching their opponent they are shown landing belly down.
- The Super Art that follows a Cross Assault is shown at an alternate angle than when used alone.
- Some Tekken characters such as Asuka Kazama and Heihachi Mishima despite having no Ki in their native series are seen using some sort of mystical power as part of their Super and Cross Arts.
- Yoshimitsu's Cross Art is the only one in the game without the usual strike Hitbox indicators.
