- This article is about a special attack. For the live-action fan short film, see Matador.
|Street Fighter V||+|
Executed by pressing Medium Punch and Medium Kick simultaneously, Vega performs a standing spin and dodges an incoming attack. By holding Medium Punch and Medium Kick, Vega performs a quick, spinning slash counterattack, resulting in a knockdown.
The Matador Turn can be used to dodge attacks and negate all damage that would otherwise connect with Vega. The followup attack produces a knockdown, but can be blocked if attempted against fast recovering attacks. It is one of Vega's longest pokes, behind Buster Claw. This move is also the combo ending attack for Vega's target combos. If the attack connects, Vega builds V-Meter. He can also cancel into his V-Trigger to either make the move safe on block or combo into his Critical Art on hit.
