Description[edit | edit source]

Ryu 'parrying' Ken's attack.

Executed by moving forward and pressing both heavy buttons, the move replicates the parry mechanic from the Street Fighter III series; Ryu even assumes his parrying pose from the series, granting him Super Armor for its duration.

While performing the move, pressing 3 punch buttons will execute a follow-up strike known as the Tesshin (徹心 Tesshin?, lit. "Piercing Heart"); doing so after successfully absorbing a hit will instead perform the Isshin (一心 Isshin?, lit. "One Mind").
