Description[edit | edit source]

Hugo taking cammy for the ride

Executed by performing two quarter-circle forward motions and pressing punch, Hugo jumps forward into the air, attempting to grab an airborne opponent; if successful, he bearhugs them and performs several moonsault spins in the air before dropping them head-first and crashing down to earth on top of them, shouting out the attack's name.

In Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, Megaton Press does almost the same damage as the Gigas Breaker, but comes in two stocks.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

The attack can be used in exactly the same way as a Shootdown Backbreaker (i.e. as an anti-air or as a juggle, one example being a follow-up to an Ultra Throw)[1].

In Ultra Street Fighter IV, the Megaton Press can be juggled into from a variety of Hugo's special attacks, including his Ultra Throw, Giant Palm Bomber, and even a Monster Lariat if it hits an airborne opponent.
