Description[]

Street Fighter III series[]

Elena crouches on the ground and glows, whereupon she begins to rapidly recover health. She can recover up to one quarter of her maximum health, but the healing will stop if she is hit or the player cancels the move at anytime (by pressing all 3 punch buttons).

Ultra Street Fighter IV[]

Elena reaching into the sky before performing the move.

Elena places her hand on her heart, then reaches into the sky while saying the move's name and crouches down whilst rapidly recovering a portion of her vitality. She then leaps up to her feet. The amount of vitality recovered depends on the amount of Revenge Gauge filled, and less vitality is recovered if the player is using Ultra Combo Double

Tactics[]

The Super Art has one large stock, meaning that the use of any EX Special moves will force Elena to build more meter before she can use this. However, the technique works quickly, and Elena will usually recover safely.

In Ultra Street Fighter IV, Healing is infamous for its availability compared to most other Ultra Combos. Due to the abundance of hard knockdowns and speed of the quick version, it is almost impossible for the opponent to punish Elena for it. The only way to get a full heal off safely requires a Focus Attack on an airborne or stunned opponent, or after Spinning Beat. Because Elena builds Ultra Combo meter when absorbing fireballs with Focus Attack, it is possible for Elena to activate Healing twice, or even three times per round.
