The Psycho Vanish/Banish (サイコバニッシュ Saiko Banisshu?) is one of M. Bison's special attacks. It was introduced in the SNK vs. Capcom series, appearing in Capcom vs. SNK and Capcom vs. SNK 2. Its last appearance was in Capcom Fighting Evolution.

Executed by performing a Shoryuken motion? and pressing punch, Bison engulfs his hand in Psycho Power and performs an overhead "slash" or punch that hits 3-5 times and knocks the opponent down.


The move is powerful enough to dissipate projectiles, similar to Zangief's Banishing Flat.[1]

When activating a Custom Combo in A-Groove, Bison is able to carry the opponent to the corner and spam this move for maximum damage. Many have dubbed this "Painting the Fence."
