An overhead attack is any attack that must be blocked high. Attempting to block the attack while crouching will result in being hit.
In the Street Fighter series, most overhead attacks are done through the use of certain special attacks or by certain command normals. These attacks usually involve the player attacking downward from a standing or grounded position. In addition, all aerial jumping attacks are classified as overhead attacks.
In the Street Fighter III series, each character possesses a leaping attack known as a Universal Overhead. These are executed with or in Street Fighter III and Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact, and with + in Street Fighter III: Third Strike.
