The Shoryureppa (昇龍裂破 Shouryuu Reppa?, "Rising Dragon Rending Blast"), also referred to as the Shadow Dragon by the manual for Super Street Fighter II Turbo (its debut), is one of Ken's special attacks, which frequently appears as a Super Combo.

In Street Fighter V, the Shoryureppa serves as Ken's EX Shoryuken while the Guren Enjinkyaku is his Critical Art.

Description

Ken performs a series of multi-hitting Shoryukens that sometimes light the opponent on fire, normally from a light "grounded" version to a stronger version per attack (normally two Shoryukens total). Higher levels of the move as well as certain versions in specific video games often involve two Shoryukens instead.

This move's very scheme also paves for a variety of similar looking attacks during its time, with one example being the Messatsu Gou Shouryuu.

Tactics

In all games, the move generally works well as a combo ender. However, it has a long recovery time as a result of the fierce Shoryuken at the end, and is easily punished if whiffed or blocked.
