Shin Akuma


Capcom vs.

Misogi (禊, "Purifier") is a Super Move first appearing in Capcom vs. SNK 2 and SNK vs. Capcom: SVC Chaos. It is the signature move of Shin Akuma, and is one of Akuma's Super Arts in Street Fighter X Tekken.

Executed by pressing HCB HCB Button-abc in CvS2 and SVC Chaos (Button-D Button-D Button-D Button-abc3 in SFxT) with a full Power bar, Akuma teleports above the opponent and charges down with a devastating strike, doing massive damage to the opponent even when blocked. In Street Fighter X Tekken, Akuma will end the attack by violently smashing the opponent's head into the ground.

The attack also appears in Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition as one of Oni's Specials, except Oni leaps above the opponent instead of teleporting.
