Executed by performing two quarter-circle forward motions and pressing kick, Cody performs a series of powerful kicks.

Street Fighter Alpha 3Edit

This move is exclusive to his A-ISM Super Combo Gauge, and has three levels:

  • Level 1: Cody starts off with a standing version of his Bad Spray, followed by light, medium, and hard Ruffian Kicks, ending with a Crack Kick.
  • Level 2: Identical to the above, but he throws in a standing medium kick after the medium-strength Ruffian Kick, and all hits do more damage.
  • Level 3: Different from the previous levels, Cody starts with a Crack Kick, then light/medium/hard Ruffian Kicks; the last Kick launches the opponent in the air, and Cody jumps up to follow with three midair Crack Kicks.

Street Fighter IV seriesEdit

Cody performs a Ruffian Kick depending on the button pressed, just as with the special attack itself. He then jumps and throws a double front kick and a Crack Kick. Upon landing, he then throws a roundhouse kick and then a jump roundhouse kick and a final Crack Kick that launches the opponent.

Once executed, the series of kicks is not performed immediately; since all hits launch the opponent into the air, Cody times his kicks to catch the opponent as they fall down.


The Street Fighter IV variant is very flexible when planning an anti-air or juggling for a combo.
