The Knee Hammer is one of Zangief's unique attacks, introduced in Street Fighter V.

Street Fighter V Arcade-Stick-Right+Arcade-Button-MKick

Description Edit


Executed by pressing forward and Medium Kick, Zangief performs a short, jumping knee strike.


This move is a good way to get in quick on the opponent. Zangief is momentarily in the air during Knee Hammer, making it useful to whiff punish low attacks. This move also moves Zangief a bit forward and closer to his opponent. If his attack hits, then it puts Zangief close enough to perform his command throws. This move can also be cancelled into Standing Light Kick or his Critical Art.
