"Get lost!"

The Rock Crusher is one of Blanka's unique attacks, introduced in the Street Fighter II series.

Description Edit

Executed by pressing forward and Medium Punch, Blanka raises his head and bashes his skull downward on top of his opponent.



As an overhead attack, the main purpose is to break through the defenses of an opponent who insists on crouch guarding (as the attack must be blocked from a standing position). The draw back causes considerable delay, and this attack can easily be countered by an aggressive opponent by hitting him beforehand. Similar to most overheads, this attack is unsafe on block. However, while it is -6 on block, it can be difficult for his opponent to punish if properly spaced.

This move is Blanka's only grounded overhead attack. However, it has a faster startup, compared to other characters' overheads. Rock Crusher also hits the opponent twice and inflicts a respectable amount of damage. In most cases, this overhead is used as a surprise attack to win the round after conditioning the opponent to constantly crouch block. Blanka cannot cancel into his special attacks from this move.
