Tiger Charge is Sagat's first V-Trigger in Street Fighter V.

Executed by pressing Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick simultaneously, Sagat powers himself up as his hands are infused with burning ki energy. While this V-Trigger is active, Sagat gain access to his Tiger Cannon special attack which can be fired up to two times and leaves the opponent in a juggle state.



Tiger Charge enhances Sagat's zoning capabilities. During the duration of this V-Trigger, he can perform Tiger Cannon at the cost about half of his V-Gauge. He can cancel Tiger Cannon from any of his normals or his Step High Kick. Sagat can perform this powerful projectile twice and hits his opponent five times. On hit, it puts the opponent in a juggle state, allowing Sagat to extend combos and create tricky mix-up situations. For optimal damage, he can end the combo with Tiger Uppercut, or he can cancel into EX Tiger Knee Crush for maximum corner carry.

However, Sagat can keep his opponent on their heels after hitting the opponent with Tiger Cannon. By linking into his Light Tiger Knee Crush, Sagat can approach his opponent safely on their wake-up and give himself tremendous frame advantage. He can mix-up meaty normals, throws, or another Tiger Cannon to keep them guessing. Because he has access to this multi-hitting projectile, he can out-zone his opponent by neutralizing almost any projectiles they throw at him, while still having enough hits to keep the pressure on them. This includes EX fireballs and even Critical Arts.
