The Ku-Runge is one Karin's unique attacks, introduced in Street Fighter V.

Street Fighter V Arcade Modifier AirArcade-Button-MPunch>Arcade-Button-HPunch

Description Edit


Executed by pressing Medium Punch, followed by Heavy Punch in succession during mid-jump, Karin performs an open handed thrust and then lands a palm strike to knock the opponent to the ground. 

Tactics Edit

This attack is an optimal anti-air tool. The first hit is Karin's main air-to-air move. It has a high hitbox, making it a decent move to use if her opponent is above her. The first attack also puts her opponent in a juggle state, allowing Karin to finish the target combo. If Karin successfully hits this target combo when she's jumping forward, she will land fairly close to the opponent. She can dash forward or use Kanzuki-Ryu Hokojutsu Seppo to close in on the opponent and continue pressure with light normals and frametraps.

Trivia Edit

  • This attack's properties are very similar to Ibuki's Aoji when she uses it off her hard kick Kasumi Gake.
