DescriptionEdit

Cammy/JuniEdit

Cammy spiral arrow

Cammy's Spiral Arrow.

Cannon Drill

Spiral Arrow/Cannon Drill, as seen in Super Street Fighter II Turbo Revival.

Executed by performing a quarter-circle forward motion and pressing kick, Cammy/Juni lunges forward during the technique, spinning in a corkscrew manner with their feet leading towards the opponent, performing a short sliding kick along the ground as they land. Though the move targets the opponent's legs, the technique can be blocked from both standing and crouching positions. The technique hits once and causes knockdown on hit. In some incarnations, Spiral Arrow will hit twice from the appropriate range. The move tends to be very unsafe on block, except when done at the maximum distance.

The traveled distance is determined by the kick button pressed.

The EX Special version introduced in Street Fighter IV has the "drilling" motion hit twice and pass under projectiles (excluding Sagat's Low Tiger Shot).

Certain crossovers allow Cammy to perform this move while airborne, with flame or 'ki' emphasis added.

In Street Fighter V, Spiral Arrow is similar compared to previous incarnations. Heavy and EX version will hit twice, while EX will usually put Cammy on the opposite side. When Cammy activates her Delta Drive V-Trigger, the hit count Spiral Arrow increases, going up to five hits and usually ending with a side switch.

DecapreEdit

Decapre's version of the move is executed with the same motion as Juni; however, her version is airborne only, and she comes down in a diagonal trajectory with her body perfectly horizontal.

TacticsEdit

Spiral Arrow knocks the opponent as soon as the handle. Most Cammy players usually end combos with Spiral Arrow. While it does less damage compared to Cannon Spike, the move ends in a knockdown. Also, Cammy ends up very close to her opponent, setting herself up for easy offenseive pressure with meaties, tic throws, frametrap combos, etc. The EX and Delta Drive V-Trigger version can go through fireballs, making it easier for Cammy to close the distance against other characters who specializes in zoning. Cammy can cancel her Spiral Arrow with a Super Move, such as Spin Drive Smasher, Gyro Drive Smasher or Cross Stinger Assault.

  • Decapre can already use it before an DCM anti-air or after a Psycho Sting.
  • Juni can also use the Spiral Arrow in the air as Decapre.

TriviaEdit

  • Juli is the only playable Doll not have Spiral Arrow on her move list; but Juli has a Spiral Arrow version Sniping Arrow.
