The Dream Driver is one of R. Mika's throws in Street Fighter V.

Street Fighter V Arcade-Button-LPunch+Arcade-Button-LKick  (Near crouching opponent)



R. Mika using her strength to throw Cammy into the ground during Dream Driver.

Executed by pressing Light Punch and Light Kick, (the throw command) near a crouching opponent. R. Mika gets the opponent down on all fours and places their head in between her thighs. With her arms around their waist, R. Mika lifts her opponent on her shoulders, before slamming them back-first into the ground.

Tactics Edit

Compared to her forward and back throws, the Dream Driver does slightly more damage. R. Mika's throws are a big part of her game. While her normal throws inflicts significantly less damage than her command grabs, she can recover much quicker if the throw whiffs. With R. Mika's arsenal of normal throws, command grabs, frametraps, and prioritizing normals, she can be very difficult to defend against.


Trivia Edit

  • This move is arguably based on a popular professional wrestling move called the Powerbomb (specifically, the Ganso Bomb, due to how Mika executes it, compared to Alex's version), invented by Lou Thesz. Other wrestlers such as Jushin Thunder Liger and Batista use a similar variations of this wrestling move (Sitout Powerbomb), which bears more similarities to Urien's Spartan Bomb.
    • It should be noted that in real life, the Ganso Bomb is considered one of the most dangerous wrestling moves known (alongside the Piledriver),as it leaves the victims head and/or neck vulnerable when executed, due to the lack of protection.
  • R. Mika is the first character in Street Fighter V to have a throw against a crouching opponent. The other's include Zangief's Horosho Chokeslam and G's Shining President.
