Description[edit | edit source]


Executed by pressing Medium Kick, followed by Heavy Kick, Ken hits his opponent with a high roundhouse kick to the head, followed by a crescent kick which will launch the opponent into the air.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

This is one of Ken's primary combos. It is a simple kick target combo, which can be followed up with one of his special attacks; such as his HadokenTatsumaki Senpukyaku and Shoryuken, which result in to some damaging combos.

The first attack of the target combo, Medium Kick, can hit crouching opponents. If successful, it forces the opponent to stand on hit, allowing Ken to finish his the combo and cancel into his special attacks or Critical Art. However, if the opponent blocks the first hit and doesn't stand up, the Heavy Kick whiffs, putting Ken in a bad position. This target combo is another good option to punish opponents and deal a good amount of damage.
