Neko Damashi is E. Honda's first V-Skill in Street Fighter V.

Street Fighter V Arcade-Button-MPunch+Arcade-Button-MKick



Executed by pressing Medium Punch and Medium Kick simultaneously, E. Honda performs a heavy-handed clap that can hit the opponent or negate single-hit projectiles.


This move gives E. Honda a tool against zoning characters. While it has a 15-frame startup, it can negate any of his opponent's single-hitting projectiles. Additionally, it can be cancelled into E. Honda's special moves on block and on hit. While it requires a hard read and fast reactions, E. Honda can negate his opponent's fireballs while cancelling into Sumo Headbutt to punish them as they are recovering.

Even though his V-Skill is -6 on block, E. Honda can cancel into his Light Hundred Hand Slap, for a true block string and gives him decent frame advantage. Against a two-hitting projectile, E. Honda can use Neko Damashi to cancel the first hit while cancelling into his EX Sumo Headbutt to power through the second hit and punish his opponent during the recovery frames. This attack does not result in a knockdown, unless if it hits an airborne opponent.
