The Oil Dive (オイルダイブ Oiru Daibu?) is one of Hakan's special attacks, introduced along with him in the Street Fighter IV series. He also has a more powerful version of this move as his Super Combo.

All appearances 360 + Kick (Hold Kick to change timing)

Description[edit | edit source]

Hakan grabbing Abel.

Executed by performing a full-circle motion in either direction and pressing kick, Hakan runs in place, then leaps through the air at the opponent while attempting to grab them; if successful, they will both land on the ground and Hakan will slide them both into the edge of the screen, smashing the opponent's head against the invisible "wall" at the end of the stage.

The amount of damage inflicted and the distance covered by the jump are determined by the kick button pressed: light kick version does the least damage and distance, and heavy kick version does the most. Keeping the kick button pressed during the input has Hakan run in place, however, he will leap forward anyway if the kick button is not released after a short time.

The EX Special version introduced in the same game does even more damage and covers even more distance.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

This move cannot be blocked. However, it can be avoided with a well-timed jump or with an interrupting attack. The delaying (by keeping the kick button pressed) can keep the opponent guessing and catch them by surprise if used correctly.
