Executed by performing a quarter circle forward motion and pressing any kick button, Rufus will slide forward. The startup time and distance traveled depends on the kick button used. There are three follow-ups available.
The EX Special version is immune to projectiles, travels as far as the heavy kick version, and has no startup time.
Mach Back Knuckle Edit
Executed by pressing light punch, Rufus will stop dashing and perform a backhand punch.
Peerless Palm Edit
Executed by pressing medium punch, Rufus will stop dashing and perform a palm thrust. This attack can break armor.
Premium Tackle Edit
Executed by pressing heavy punch, Rufus will stop dashing and perform a shoulder ram. This attack can break armor.
Rufus is vulnerable during the dash (unless using the EX version), so it should be timed carefully, as each follow-up has a different number of startup frames. It can also be used without a follow-up, making it useful for closing the distance.
