The Hyakuretsukyaku (百裂脚?, "Hundred Rending Legs"), commonly known as Lightning Kick, is one of Chun-Li's signature Special Attack. It made its first appearance in the original Street Fighter II.

In Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes, Shadow Lady's variant is called Infinity Leg (インフィニティ脚, Infiniti Ashi). In the Street Fighter IV series, this is one of the many moves copied by Seth.



For Chun-Li, the move is executed by pressing rapidly and repeatedly any kick button; In the Vs. series games, Chun-Li (and by extension, Shadow Lady) gains the ability to perform the Hyakuretsukyaku in midair. In Street Fighter X Tekken, performing this requires the use of a half-circle forward motion, since the move serves as the Super Charg for her Senretsukyaku Super Art. In Street Fighter V, the input has been simplified to a quarter-circle forward motion, and can also be performed in the air similar to the Vs. series.

Chun-Li stands on one leg and side kicks "at the speed of lightning", with her other leg extended out. The kicks come out with incredible speed and power, and can land several hits, doing substantial damage if not blocked, and doing decent Chip Damage even when blocked. The EX Special version of the move introduced in Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike starts up much quicker and launches the opponent into the air.

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 also adds pink-comic-book-tearing effects to each kick, alongside her Hoyokusen. In Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite however, two new followups are added. First is the Sotengeki (掃天撃 Soutengeki?, Brushing Heaven Strike), where Chun-Li from the grounded version of Hyakuretsukyaku performs an upward kick akin to her Tenkukyaku that acts as an air combo/aerial rave starter. Second is the Recchishu (裂地蹴 Recchishuu?, Rending Earth Kick; romaji is misspelled as "Rechishu" in-game), where from the midair version of Hyakuretsukyaku Chun-Li performs a forward-somersault-heel-drop to slam her target to the ground.
