This technique is Gravity Antonion and Copy Sigma's primary weakness. It can be used to destroy the cubes summoned by the Maverick using his own Squeeze Bomb attack except for those used in his Overdrive Attack.
An unrelated attack named Rasenkyaku (螺旋脚 lit. "Spiral Leg") is used as Zero's midair forward heavy kick command normal in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, where Zero performs an inward spin kick with his following leg forward while airborne.
GlitchIf the player press the down button while holding the up button, the user will move straight up instead of going down, making it possible to reach high areas and even go out of the stage's limits. The glitch can be used with any weapon and Senpūkyaku, and can also move diagonally up. This was later fixed when the game was re-released as part of Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2.
- The name of the attack can also be alternatively read due to Japanese homophones, as "Rakshasa Flash".
- Unlike Shadow Runner and Black Arrow, Rasetsusen does not have any shadowy/darkness visuals. Its element as a darkness based attack likely stems from its brutal nature given by its alternative namesake, the Rakshasa. However, Rasetsusen is possibly based of Dark Mantis's Overdrive attack.
