El Fuerte

SSFIV-ElFuerte Face.jpg

Many fighters in the Street Fighter circuit have odd motivations for why they continue to fight, but perhaps none are more strange than El Fuerte's: to find the ultimate recipe. Because of his profession as a luchador, he is able to compete in Street Fighting and, thus, has been allowed to travel the world to help him find new tastes and recipes. The only problem is that, despite his exposure to the world's finest cuisines, El Fuerte remains a horrid chef! But Fuerte believes otherwise and few have the heart to tell him the truth.


In a nutshell

El Fuerte may be the hardest working character in the Street Fighter IV series. Requiring a large amount of dexterity, Fuerte also requires a high level of mind games in being able to continually mix your opponents up over and over again with his armada of Habanero Dash attacks. Fuerte can't do large chunks of damage at a time outside of Ultras and a damaging but difficult combo in his infamous RSF (Run, Stop, Fierce), so defeating opponents will often be a slow process, chipping away at life hit by hit by hit. And then, if your opponent hits you, Fuerte crumbles like a tortilla chip. But if you enjoy using characters that never sit still and are always moving, you may find yourself at home with Fuerte.

AE ver. 2012 Changes

Propeller Tortilla

Made strike- and projectile-invincible from start until 13th frame.


Quesadilla Bomb

Made EX version’s counter-hits lead to wall bounce damage. Reduced EX version’s charge time from 390 to 210F. Shortened recovery by 10F when EX version or normal move hits at full charge.


Calamari Slide

Fixed issue whereby using a Heavy Punch→Calamari Slide combo against a crouching Balrog, etc. wasn’t hitting the opponent.


Guacamole Leg Throw

Reduced landing stun from 13F to 10F.

AE Changes

  • Far Light Punch and Crouching Light Punch now have a 4 frame start up, but also have additional active frames, making them easier to connect.
  • Crouching Light Punch can now be Chain Canceled.
  • More recovery on Quacamole Slew (Air Grab) on landing, which includes the EX version, making this easier to punish.
  • Tortilla Propeller (Run away, press Hard Punch) lost invincibility, can be countered more easily.
  • More startup frames on El Fuerte's Ultra 2 and the damage was also reduced.
