Description[edit | edit source]

Executed by pressing forward and Heavy Punch during a forward jump, Poison lashes her whip horizontally in midair.

Tactics[edit | edit source]


This move is the only aerial attack that requires a directional input during a forward jump. While Whiplash does not inflict as much damage as her Jumping Heavy Punch and Jumping Heavy Kick, it has excellent range for an aerial move. It can be used be used to stop her opponent's jump-ins from a distance. Even though it causes a standing reset on hit, Whiplash is effective for keeping her opponent at bay. Additionally, because Poison excels in zoning out her opponent's with her long-range normals and special attacks, it's crucial that she keeps her opponent at that distance as much as possible.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This attack is similar visually to Poison's SFIV and SFXT era neutral/diagnal jumping medium punch.It was unnamed in those appearances and acted like a regular attack.
