The Jackknife Maximum, also known informally as the Up Kicks, is one of Dee Jay's special attacks, introduced in Super Street Fighter II Turbo.

All appearances Arcade Stick CDU + Arcade Button Kick



The initial kick of Jackknife Maximum.

Executed by charging downward, then pressing upward and kick, Dee Jay leaps up and forward into the air while delivering a slashing kick(s). How far the move travels and how many kicks are used (and thus, how much recovery time the move requires) is determined by the kick button used: light kick has the least startup time, travels the least and delivers only one kick; heavy kick has the longest startup time, travels the most and delivers three kicks; and medium kick balances in-between.

The EX Special version introduced in Super Street Fighter IV delivers 5 kicks (the last kick hits twice, thus scoring up to 6 hits) and travels the furthest into the air with the least startup time.
