Description[edit | edit source]

M. Bison using Psycho Impact against Cammy.

Bison rushes forward and delivers two punches, with the second being covered in Psycho Power energy.

In Street Fighter V, the Psycho Impact is the name of one of M. Bison's throws. Executed by pressing Light Punch and Light Kick, (the throw command) near an opponent. M. Bison uses Psycho Power to telekinetically lift the opponent off of the ground and spins them in place. Upon completing the rotation, M. Bison fires a burst of negative energy toward the airborne opponent, sending them flying across the stage.

Concept[edit | edit source]

The move is based on Nukite from Grappler Baki. More specifically the one where Jack Hanma used against Alexander Gallen.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

Throw attacks are mainly use to get pass an opponent's defenses if they are constantly guarding. Even though the throw sends the opponent across the screen, it is a good move to slow down their pressure. It is also used to get the opponent into the corner, where M. Bison excels in applying offensive pressure.
