The Prison Breaker is Cody's V-Reversal, introduced in Street Fighter V

Street Fighter V Arcade-Stick-Right+Arcade Button Kick x3 (During guard)



Executed by pressing forward and all three kicks after blocking an attack, Cody performs a backflip with his leg stretched out, kicking his opponent and knocking them backwards. If no directional input or button is pressed after the move, Cody adjusts his hair before dropping back in his stance.

This move is visually similar to his Somersault Kick, and Guile's Flash Kick.


Like most V-Reversals, the purpose is to stop opponent's pressure or to get out of tough situations. Cody is also fully invincible to other attacks during his V-Reversal. If the opponent is constantly pressuring, Cody can use Prison Breaker to create separation and reset the neutral game. On hit, it results in a knockdown and sends the opponent back about halfscreen. This allows Cody to zone out his opponent with his projectiles. While it does cost 1 meter of his V-Gauge to use this move, both of his V-Triggers are only 2-bars. Cody can use his V-Reversal a couple of times and still build enough meter to use his V-Trigger at least once a round.
