A video overview on how to super cancel. Watch ►

Super Canceling is when you cancel one move into a Super Art. For example if I did Ryu's Fireball and while the Fireball's animation frames were still displaying, did another Fireball, I'd go right into a Shinkuu-Hadou-Ken (Super Fireball) if I inputted the moves quickly.

The reason is that the initial Fireball actually counts as the first part of the Super Art Shinkuu-Hadou-Ken (Super Fireball) motion, and doing another one completes the double motion, and the Super Art comes out. If this is all done within the span of the original Fireball animation, you Cancel that animation and go into the the Super Art. Thus why it's called, "Canceling."

This technique can be used to ease the burden of pulling off double motions to execute supers in combos and in other circumstances, plus it's a good way to get in an extra hit or two.

It takes practice to get the timing down, but this is a very strong technique and it's worth the effort.

This is helpful, but I might have to throw a little guide of my own together that covers it a bit more in detail....This definitely explains it well, but let's say you have a character like Makoto in 3rd Strike...she can cancel HP into SA2, but if you throw out a dash punch, which is the motion of a fireball (QCF+P), you can't cancel into the super.

Also just a side note, not that anyone cares and I'm sure someone will hate me for this...but although "inputted" is a word, it just sounds weird compared to "input" I keep finding little typos and such every now and then that I wanna fix >w<
