The Stardust Shot is one of Vega's throws in Street Fighter V.

Street Fighter V Arcade-Button-LPunch+Arcade-Button-LKick (Near opponent in the air)

Executed by pressing Light Punch and Light Kick, (the throw command) while Vega and his opponent are near each other in the air. After grabbing his opponent in midair, Vega brings them close and delivers a roundhouse kick to the midsection. As Vega completes his rotation and lands on the ground, the opponent crashes on their back.


Because Vega has limited ant-air tools, his air throw gives him an option to punish airborne opponents. This move is Vega's most damaging anti-air moves. It also has no height restrictions, meaning that Vega can use this move any time he's in the air, regardless how low he is off of the ground. It is good for stuffing out close jump ins, resulting in a knockdown and resetting the neutral game. While it doesn't have any sort of invincibility, it is a great way to surprise his opponent and force them to reconsider jumping in against Vega.
