The Hirate is one of E. Honda's unique attacks, introduced in Street Fighter V.

Description[edit | edit source]

Executed by pressing Light Punch, then Medium Punch, followed by Medium Punch and Medium Kick simultaneously, E. Honda first delivers a quick, palm thrust to the opponent's head. If the first attack hits, E. Honda strikes with a second palm thrust to the midsection. If the second attack hits the opponent, E. Honda finishes the combo with a heavy-hitting clap that knocks them back.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

This is one of E. Honda's target combos. While Hirate inflicts the same damage as his Tokoshizume target combo, it also does slightly more stun. This move can only be performed if the second attack hits the opponent. The second hit launches the opponent in the air, allowing E. Honda to finish the combo with his V-Skill. Not only Hirate knocks down the opponent, it also builds V-Meter. Additionally, E. Honda can cancel Hirate into one of his V-Triggers.
