Description[edit | edit source]


Executed by pressing forward and Heavy Kick, E. Honda extends his leg and performs a wide sweeping kick.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

This is one of E. Honda's longer ranging normals. While it has quite a few startup frames, this move gives E. Honda a tool to interrupt zoning characters' attempts to throw projectiles at him. In previous renditions, the Harai Geri is a low-hitting attack that sweeps the opponent off of their feet, resulting in a knockdown.

In Street Fighter V, this move does not hit low, meaning that his opponent can block this attack while standing. It is also one of E. Honda's Crush Counter moves. After performing Oicho Throw on his opponent, he can fish for Crush Counter hits with Harai Geri, putting the opponent in a spinning state and giving him a opportunity to inflict more damage.
