Street Fighter 6: Dhalsim Move List & Guide

Street Fighter 6 is coming out on 2nd June, which is just less than a month away. As such, the game’s roster for its launch is set with 18 characters, each with their various playstyles.

In this entry, we’ll be focusing on the limb-stretching Indian mystic Dhalsim, who practices the ancient fighting art of Yoga but now in a new getup. The children’s skulls necklace was probably a bit much.

Note: This guide is still in development.
All inputs are in numpad notations. For example, Hadouken from player 1’s starting side is 236P.
Attack buttons are as follows: LP, MP, HP are light punch, medium punch, and heavy punch respectively. LK, MK, and HK are light kick, medium kick, and heavy kick respectively. None of this Fierce or Roundhouse bulls*** in Asia.

Street Fighter 6 Dhalsim Overview

Dhalsim can stretch his limbs pretty far, meaning he can hit you from almost full-screen if he feels like it. As such, he’s the game’s best zoner, able to keep people away from him while he dishes out the hits from a safe distance. He has projectiles like Yoga Fire and arching Yoga Arch, Yoga Flame as knockback moves, and teleport to get away from trouble.

He now has a Yoga Flame that he can shoot downward from the air, adding way more keepaway moves to pressure opponents from afar and winning via Time Out. He can still do Drive Rush combos, but they’re aren’t as potent and practical as how his Street Fighter 5 offense was. If you are playing Dhalsim and you’re mostly next to your opponent, you’re playing him completely wrong.

Play If: You prefer taking the fight from full screen and keeping people away from you, you hate grapplers & slow characters with a passion.

Avoid If: You prefer rushdown or grapplers, don’t like poking people from full-screen for 99% of the match.


Street Fighter 6 Dhalsim Move List

Special Moves

Yoga Fire: 236P. Standard projectile. Keeps opponents away.

Yoga Comet: While in air during a jump, 63214P. Downward fireball that pushes Dhalsim back.
