- "Down + S.M. button while jumping. A dive attack. Effective against surface enemies."
- ―In-game text, Mega Man X4
Hyouretsuzan (氷烈斬 lit. "Ice Fury Slash"), is the special technique that Zero learns after defeating Frost Walrus in Mega Man X4. This technique is based off Frost Walrus's ability to create & drop icicles from the ceiling. By pressing DOWN on the D-pad and the S.M. button while airborne, Zero turns the blade of his Z-Saber into ice and performs a downward thrust with it. Once Zero hits the ground while performing this technique, the blade will shatter.
Like some of his other techniques, Hyouretsuzan is capable of inflicting tremendous amount of damage as it can strike multiple times. Zero can double jump out of a Hyouretsuzan, and even do a second one without landing.
This technique also appears in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, via releasing a Hyper Zero Blaster-stored-charge during Ryuenjin.
Damage Data Chart
Damage values in units in Mega Man X4.
- Minibosses such as Tentoroid and DG-42L and some bosses do not have an invincibility period when struck, so Hyouretsuzan can deal a tremendous amount of damage as it can inflict multiple hits. Damages listed on this chart is damage dealt per hit, not the total amount of damage done.
