"Right there!"

The Floral Spin (フラワースピン Furawāsupin?) is Sakura's V-Reversal, introduced in Street Fighter V

Description[edit | edit source]

Executed by pressing forward and all three kicks after blocking an attack, Sakura performs a single low, sweeping, spinning kick that is visually similar to her Haru Ichiban.

Tactics[edit | edit source]


Like most V-Reversals, the purpose is to stop opponent's pressure or to get out of tough situations. Despite its appearance, this move is not a low profile attack, meaning that her opponent can block Floral Spin while standing. She is also fully invincible to other attacks and projectiles during her V-Reversal.

If the opponent is constantly pressuring, Sakura can use her Floral Spin to create separation and reset the neutral game. On hit, it results in a knockdown and sends the opponent back about halfscreen. This gives Sakura enough time and spacing to deliver a fully charged Hadoken. While it does cost one meter of her V-Gauge to use this move, both of her V-Triggers are only 2-bars. She can use her V-Reversal a couple of times and still build enough meter to use her V-Trigger at least once a round.
