Description Edit

Spinning Back Knuckle

Executed by pressing forward and Heavy Punch, the user rotates and steps toward the opponent. They extend their arm out and clubs across the head using the back of their fist. The user finishes by stepping back to a neutral position.



While the startup for this attack is long, this move is one Guile's and Nash's longest normals. It is a far-ranged poke that's good for keeping the opponent at a distance, as well as stopping them from walking forward or about to jump. This move is also a good anti-air tool if the opponent empty jumps at a range that is safe from all of Guile's other buttons. Additionally, it can be used to fish for Crush Counter hits, leading into some big damage. Then again, it is unsafe on block, unless the user hits this move at max range.
