The Giraffe Neck (キリンネック Kirin Nekku) is one of Elena's special attacks, exclusive to the Omega Mode of Ultra Street Fighter IV.

All appearances Arcade Stick QCF + Arcade Button Punch


Executed by performing a quarter-circle forward motion and pressing punch, Elena goes into a handstand and performs a downward-angled kick with both feet. The attack hits twice. The startup time and attack distance are determined by the punch button pressed.

The EX Special version introduced in Ultra Street Fighter IV covers an even greater distance and performs both hits even faster.


The technique's fast startup makes it quite a very difficult to get a good read on, which regularly catches slow opponents off-guard. The EX version is also a great combo finisher.
