The Shadow Axe is one of M. Bison's unique attacks in Street Fighter V.

Executed by pressing Medium Punch, followed by down-forward and Heavy Punch, M. Bison begins the combination with a punch to the gut. He then follows up with a powerful, open-handed hammer strike with his hand infused with Psycho Power.


This is one of M. Bison's target combos. The first attack has short range, but gives him frame advantage on block. If the Standing Medium Punch hits the opponent, then he can link into the Psycho Axe to perform this target combo for respectable damage. On hit, M. Bison is +2, putting him close to his opponent for a mix-up. He can go for a throw or maintain pressure with normals. Like most target combos, Shadow Axe is unsafe on block. However, he can cancel into his V-Triggers to retain frame advantage.
