Executed by pressing Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick simultaneously, Ibuki throws a single bomb with a slow fuse that blows up after some time.
Rokushaku Horokudama is one of Ibuki's primary mix-up tools she can use to help her turn the tide of the match into her favor. As soon as Ibuki activates her V-Trigger, the first bomb is thrown. It remains on the stage until it explodes. She cannot throw a second bomb, unless the first one has detonated As long as the bomb is on the screen and near her opponent, it keeps them on their heels and on the defensive, allowing Ibuki to maintain or increase pressure. When the bomb explodes and hits the opponent, it launches them in the air, allowing Ibuki to extend the combo or create another setup.
The bomb fuse time is determined depending on the direction pressed during the activation. If only Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick are pressed without a direction, the bomb explodes after about one second. By pressing back, with Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick together, the bomb detonates after three seconds. By pressing forward, with Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick together, the bomb takes about five seconds to explode, which is the longest duration of this move.
Ibuki and her opponent can move the bomb around by hitting it with their attacks. Ibuki can also make the bomb instantly explode by hitting it with an EX Kunai. Still, it's very important to create setups with the bomb before it detonates to keep her opponent guessing. For example, Ibuki can use the Medium version of Kasumi Gake to dash past her opponent, just before the bomb explodes, forcing them to guess what side she is on.
After the bomb detonates, it creates a dark cloud of smoke to conceal Ibuki and her opponent for several moments. This can put her opponent at a disadvantage since they cannot see behind the smoke, forcing them to guess what Ibuki is doing or remain on the defensive.
After the first bomb is thrown, the V-Gauge turns into a timer that slowly depletes. During this time, a second bomb can be thrown, but only after the first one explodes.
- This is Ibuki's single most damaging weapon throughout her existence at 100 damage. Other weapon based attacks have done more damage such as her EX Kunai at 140 and Kasumi Suzaku at 350 but those require all hits to connect and depending how they hit could do less damage.
- Yami Shigure does more damage on connection, but that is due to the followup Ki powered slashes she performs. The Kunai startup by itself does less damage.
