Description[edit | edit source]
Executed by performing a half-circle backward motion and pressing punch, Sawada kneels down and stabs himself (yelling "Hara-kiri!"), spraying an arc of blood around and over top of him. The stronger the punch button used, the longer Sawada will be stunned after the blood-arc disappears. The arc of blood can also stop enemy projectiles.
The EX version turns the blood into fire and increases the speed and damage of the attack; it can also reflect projectiles back at the opponent.
Tactics[edit | edit source]
The attack acts primarily as Sawada's overhead attack to counter jumping opponents.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Though Sawada does not use this move in the arcade version, the same animation (minus the blood) is used when he loses by time over.
