Other Terms

  • Satsui no Hado (Street Fighter series)


Users are able to control chi that has been tainted by negative energy a.k.a evil. Due to this, they gain access to powerful dark abilities and forces that are able to give the user incredible power. However, the user's force of will, compassion, and sanity are all lost due to being over taken by evil, eventually leaving them to feel nothing except anger and hatred, and becoming driven by their most aggressive instincts.




  • The versatile abilities that once belonged to Chi Manipulation are now gone.
  • The user loses all regard for humanity and compassion in exchange for power.
  • The chi can be suppressed by spiritual meditation or pure chi.
  • Despite its tainted nature, the dark chi is still dependent on the physical body, so it is still capable of putting a massive strain on the user.
