Cammy performing Lift Upper.

Executed by pressing back and Medium Punch, Cammy performs a quick uppercut that hits almost vertically above her.


This attack is an excellent anti-air option. It comes out as quick as her Light normals and can even catch her opponent in the air quicker before they can begin their jump-in attack. If the Lift Upper is timed and spaced correctly, Cammy can dash underneath her opponent for damaging mix-up combos. She can also stay on the same side to maintain offensive pressure.

While the damage this move inflicts by itself is minimal, it is one of Cammy's best attacks to keep her opponent on their heels. Because of its fast startup, it can be very difficult for her opponent to stuff it out. Despite of this move's lack of range, it puts Cammy in an advantageous position, whether the attack is blocked or hit. On block, Cammy is +1. If her opponent tries to attack with a 3-frame normal, she can use her Crouching Light Punch to interrupt their counterattack. On hit, Cammy is +4. She can link Lift Upper into any of her 3 or 4-frame Light normals, leading into some decent damaging combos.

By pressing Heavy Kick after Lift Upper, Cammy performs her Lift Combination target combo. The following attacks below can be used in combos with Lift Upper.
