Senpūkyaku (旋風脚 lit. "Whirlwind Leg") is the technique Zero and Layer obtain after defeating Dark Mantis in Mega Man X8. With the K Knuckle equipped, Zero performs an airborne spinning kick attack that can be directioned downward and diagonally down. If no button is pressed, the user will stay in the air for a short period before moving down.




Ryu using the Tatsumaki Senpukyaku.

  • Like the Shouryuuken, this technique is based on a move from the Street Fighter series, the Tatsumaki Senpukyaku. There also exists a minor technique/version in the form of a command normal/unique move also called the "Senpuukyaku", used by not only Ryu, but Akuma/Gouki, Yun and Yang (the latter two's versions are radically different attacks however).
  • Rasetsusen's glitch also works with the Senpuukyaku.
