Negative Edge techniques

A funny name for a highly useful trick. In short, Negative Edge means that you can do the motion for a Fireball and have the move go off on the release of the punch button — not just when you press it down.

This starts coming in really handy when you attempt to perform a reversal Super move or try to do Links with very strict timing, as it gives you additional chances to pull off the attack.

For example, if you're trying to execute a wake-up reversal Super Art and you press the button too early, you still have another chance to pull off your move on the release of the button. This technique coupled with Piano Key Button Presses can give you six chances to get your move out.

To see a video on how this works, check out the clip on the right.

Piano Key Button Presses

There is another technique to help ease the timing of doing supers and some special moves. The idea is simple, instead of just pressing one button after doing the motion for a Super Art, you roll your fingers across all three punches or kicks to get additional chances at executing the move.

For example, if I do the two fireball motions to perform Ryu's Shinkuu-Hadou-Ken (Super Fireball) and instead of pressing one punch button, I drum my fingers across all three in quick succession — factoring in Negative Edge — I now have six individual chances for a button to properly coincide with the motion and make my super come out.

This wicked sick technique can make your Street Fighter life a lot easier, as Links and Reversals that once seemed near impossible are now much easier to pull off.
