The Whip of Love (ウィップオブラブ Wippu obu Rabu?) is one of Poison's special attacks, introduced in Street Fighter × Tekken.

All appearances Quarter-circle forward + Punch (can be performed up to 3 times, EX version can be performed up to 4 times)

Executed by pressing a quarter-circle back motion and pressing punch, Poison flogs the opponent for each input; if the full follow-up is performed, the third strike inflicts knockdown.

The distance covered by each flog and recovery time in-between them are determined by the punch button pressed at the initial input, with heavier punches meaning longer reach but also longer startup and recovery time.

The EX Special version introduced in Street Fighter × Tekken executes all three strikes in rapid succession; the last one is automatically followed by an upwards kick that launches the foe into the air, similarly to Sakura's EX Shunpukyaku; in the OMEGA Mode, all four attacks are chained automatically and the finishing blow is electricity-charged.


This move is best used at close range, being appropriate for combos or general chip damage, though it can be easily punished if blocked. The EX Special's subsequent upwards kick allows for juggles, but does not work too well as an anti-air defense due to its long startup time; it can also combo into her first Ultra Combo, but the timing is strict.
