Executed by pressing forward and medium punch, Guy clasps his hands together and pauses for a single second, then strikes a downwards stabbing elbow which can hit twice.


Executed by pressing forward and Heavy Punch simultaneously, Zeku reels back and pauses before coming down with an elbow strike that hits twice.

Tactics Edit


As an overhead attack, the main purpose is to break through the defenses of an opponent who insists on crouch guarding (as the attack must be blocked from a standing position). The draw back causes considerable delay, and this attack can easily be countered by an aggressive opponent by hitting her beforehand. Similar to most overheads, this attack is unsafe on block. However, while it is -6 on block, it can be difficult for his opponent to punish if properly spaced.

This move is one of Zeku's overheads, in addition to Gekkou, and Nouten Wari which can be performed in Old Zeku form. Kubi Kudaki inflicts slightly more damage than other characters' overheads. It also hits the opponent twice. In most cases, this overhead is used as a surprise attack to win the round after conditioning the opponent to constantly crouch block. Zeku cannot cancel into his special attacks from this move.
