Special Moves[]


QCF+P (all games)
This move is pretty much the same thing as a Hadouken. Akuma gathers Chi into an energy ball and releases that energy towards an opponent. This move is always performed with QCF+P. The higher the strength of the punch button pressed, the faster the gohadouken travels across the screen. The Gohadouken is about half the size of a Akuma and is released at chest-level.

Shakunetsu Hadouken[]

This is a multi-hitting powerfull Hadouken similar to Ryu's own Shakunetsu Hadouken. When Akuma is not handi-capping himself (SSF2T Akuma and SFA2 Shin Akuma), this move has almost no startup or recovery time. Normally though, this move has considerable startup and recover times. The harder the punch button pressed, the longer Akuma charges it and the slower it travels across the screen. It will set an enemy on fire, dish out multiple hits, and knock them down.

Gou Shoryuken[]

DP+P (all games)
This is pretty much the same thing as Ryu's version of the Shoryuken. It is a rising dragon uppercut attack which moves slightly forwards (though not as forwards as Akuma's would later do). The higher the strength of the punch button used, the higher, farther, and harder the attack.

Zanku Hadouken[]

QCF+P (in air) (all games)
A Hadouken is released diagonally downwards towards the opponent.

Tatsumaki Zankukyaku[]

QCB+K (all games)
This is pretty much the same thing as a Tatsumaki Senpu Kyaku, although it doesn't travel as far across the screen. The Tatsumaki Senpukyaku is the third basic move characteristic of the Shotokan style of martial arts. Akuma leaps straight in the air with one leg while the other spins around in a fierce hurricane kick. While spinning, Akuma travels horizontally forwards across the screen. This move can also be performed in the air. The higher the strength of the kick button used, the longer, farther, and harder the attack.

In the Street Fighter EX series, this move only performs one twisting air kick, which can be repeated up to three times while still in the air. The weaker the kick, the higher Ryu travels upwards.

Hyaku Shuu[]

QCF,UF+P (SF3); DP+K (SF3,CvS2)
Akuma rolls into a ball and lunges in an arc towards his opponent. The more powerfull the buttong pressed, the further he travels. This move is then followed up by one of the following moves:

Hyakki Gouzan[]

do nothing after a Hyaku Shuu (SFA,SF3,CvS2)
If no commands are issued after performing a Hyaku Shuu while he was in the air, Akuma will do a sliding kick as soon as he touches the ground.

Hyaki Goushou[]

P after a Hyaku Shuu (SFA,SF3,CvS2)
Akuma punches downwards on his opponent.

Hyaki Goujin[]

K after a Hyaku Shuu (SFA,SF3,CvS2)
Akuma kicks down on his opponent.

Hyaki Gousai[]

Punch Throw after a Hyaku Shuu when close to opponent's head (SFA,CvS2,SF3)
Akuma will grab his opponent by his shoulders, flip him in the air and toss him.

Hyaki Gotsui[]

Kick Throw when close to opponent (SFA,CvS2)

Super Moves[]

Messatsu-Gou Hadou[]

A very large and powerfull multi-hitting go hadouken.


DQCF+P in air (SFA-A,SF3,CvS)
An extra strong and large go hadouken thrown from the air like a Zanku Hadouken.


Akuma performs several Goushoryukens.


Akuma launches his Tatsumaki Zankukyaku very high straight up in the air, juggling his opponents between his kicks on the way up.


Akuma performs a Ashura Senku towards his opponent, grabs his opponent, and causes his chest to explode, dealing massive damage.


D,D,D+3P (SF3)
Akuma strikes the ground and causes fountains of flame to sprout high out of the ground on either side of him. The closer the opponent is to Akuma, the higher the damage.

Non-Attack Moves[]

Zenpo Tenshin[]


Ashura Senku[]

(DP or RDP) + (3P or 3K) (SFA); (DP or RDP) + (2P or 2K) (SF3)
