The Shukumyo is one of Zeku's special attacks in Street Fighter V.

Street Fighter V Arcade-Stick-DownArcade-Stick-Down+Arcade-Button-2xPunch

Description Edit


Executed by pressing down twice, followed by two punch buttons at the same time, Zeku seemingly throws a pellet at his feet, which then explodes and releases a smoke cloud, hiding Zeku from view. The smoke then clears, revealing Zeku in his other form. Zeku then briefly stands still and poses with his hands together in a focused position before either moving or reverting back to his idle stance. This move can be performed by both Old and Young Zeku.

Tactics Edit


Shukumyo allows Zeku to switch at will without the need to attack his opponent, unlike his Fukuro and his second V-Trigger. This move is best used when the opponent is knocked down or at a distance from Zeku. It is also used to deceive the opponent. While pressuring them with normals and combos, Zeku can use Shukumyo to not only transform into his younger/older self, but it can also catch his opponent off-guard if they expect him to complete a combo.

This move is the safest way for Zeku to change forms. While his V-Skill and second V-Trigger are unsafe on block, he can still defend himself after the transformation. This is because Zeku is completely vulnerable throughout the duration of the move and a little bit after it is done. It is also possible for Zeku to switch forms back-and-forth during a single combo. By effectively utilizing Shukumyo, Zeku can perform flashy, yet tricky combos to inflict optimal damage and maintain positional advantage.
