Hadouken

Hadouken (波動拳 hadōken?, IPA: [hadoːkẽꜜɴ]) is a Japanese neologism, literally meaning “wave motion fist” or “surge fist”. It is a special attack used by characters in the game Street Fighter. Takashi Nishiyama, the creator of the game, credits the 1970s anime Space Battleship Yamato and a missile called the Hadouho as the origin of hadouken. The move is achieved by the character thrusting their palms forward, sending a surge of spirit energy flying towards the opponent. – Wikipedia

We have noticed an increased amount of Hadouken photos being uploaded in the past couple of days. If you are sharing your outburst of spirit energy, don’t forget to add the tag hadouken. Let’s see if this has the potential to evolve into a new meme.
