The Gigas Breaker (ギガスブリーカー Gigasu Buriikaa?) is one of Hugo's special attacks, introduced as his first Super Art in the Street Fighter III series. This Super Art returns in Street Fighter X Tekken, and is his first Ultra Combo in Ultra Street Fighter IV.

Description[edit | edit source]
Hugo attempts to grab the opponent in the Street Fighter III series; in Street Fighter X Tekken, the move is strike-based, and he runs after the foe, attempting to Lariat them. If successful, he then proceeds to perform a spinning Shootdown Backbreaker then a bigger one and finally a powerful Moonsault Press which smashes the opponent in-between Hugo's humongous body and the ground, Hugo counting to 3 in German while doing so.
Tactics[edit | edit source]
In the Street Fighter III series, the technique is the Super Art of choice for many Hugo players and inflicts a massive amount of damage. It has a greater range than his Moonsault Press alone, which makes it easier to counter moves on block.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The way Hugo counts to three in Ultra Street Fighter IV is strangely offset compared to his other appearances, counting while he's falling rather when he's preparing to jump.
