MetallicSphere

The Metallic Sphere (メタリックスフィア) is one of Urien's special attacks, introduced in the Street Fighter III series.

Input
All appearances Arcade Stick QCF+Arcade Button Punch (Changes when holding button)

DescriptionEdit

Executed by performing a quarter-circle forward motion and pressing punch, Urien fires a large round metallic projectile from his fist that electrocutes his opponent.

Street Fighter IIIEdit

The angle of the projectile is determined by the punch button pressed:

Version Effect
Arcade-Button-LPunch Fires it horizontally.
Arcade-Button-MPunch Fires it at roughly a 30° angle.
Arcade-Button-HPunch Fires it at roughly a 60° angle.
Arcade Button 2xKick Hits twice.

Street Fighter VEdit

Urien also retains this move in Street Fighter V. While the input command of this move is the same, the properties have changed, compared to previous versions.

Version Effect
Arcade-Button-LPunch Fires it horizontally; hits opponent once. (twice if button is held)
Arcade-Button-MPunch Fires it horizontally, but with a faster speed; hits opponent once. (twice if button is held)
Arcade-Button-HPunch Fires it at roughly a 45° angle; hits opponent once. (twice if button is held)
Arcade-Button-LPunch+Arcade-Button-MPunch Fires it horizontally; hits opponent twice. (three times if buttons is held)
Arcade-Button-LPunch+Arcade-Button-HPunch Fires it horizontally, but with a faster speed; hits opponent twice. (three times if buttons is held)
Arcade-Button-MPunch+Arcade-Button-HPunch Fires it at roughly a 45° angle; hits opponent twice. (three times if buttons is held)

The attack has an upgraded form known as Temporal Thunder.

TacticsEdit

Metallic Sphere has a relatively slow startup, but it can be charged, and can be used to juggle opponents with the proper timing. It also hits once, compared to his older brother's two hits, and takes longer before it can be used. In Street Fighter V, this move can be charged to add one additional hit to the projectile. Additionally, the charged fireball makes the move safe on block. This is effective in performing juggle combos or setting up tricky reset scenarios. Urien can use Metallic Sphere to keep his opponent at bay and attack at a distance.

Trivia Edit

  • Urien's brother Gill has two equivalents. It hits twice compared to Urien's once without meter and changes based on direction.
  • In Street Fighter V, he fires a charged version of this move at his fallen opponent as his win animation.
