  • Flying Barcelona Attack: Vega leaps towards a wall and kick-jumps off of it high into the air and towards his opponent. Vega then executes a follow-up attack, in which he angles himself upside-down and performs a broad slash.
  • Izuna Drop: Vega leaps towards a wall and kick-jumps off of it high into the air and towards his opponent. He then grabs the opponent (grounded or airborne) around the waist and slams them head-first into the ground.
  • Sky High Claw: Vega leaps towards a wall and kick-jumps off of it, gliding horizontally towards his opponent with his claw outstretched. He bounces off the opponent upon striking.
  • Scarlet Terror: Vega performs a backflip as an offensive attack. It is strong enough to break an opponent's guard.
  • Scarlet Mirage: Vega performs several backflip kicks in a row, at the same time striking the opponent with multiple backslashes.
  • Red Impact: Vega will perform a short claw swipe, which will toss his opponent into the air above him. He will then spin around and impale them with his claw.
  • Bloody High Claw: Vega leaps onto a wall, then performs multiple Sky High Claws on his opponent in quick succession, rising higher up the screen every time, scattering broken petals of roses at the peak of the move and laughing sadistically as the opponent falls while he lands harmlessly on his feet.

  • Splendid Claw: Vega throws an elegant pose with his claw above his head and performs a slide kick towards his opponent. If it lands, he follows up with a Scarlet Terror, while yelling hysterically, which sends them sky high. Just as they are about to land, Vega fiercely strikes them in the back with his claw in a horizontal arc motion; at the same time, broken petals of roses are scattered all over the place. He then mocks the opponent as they fall.

  • Bloody Rain Vega dives into his opponent and attacks them with his claw before backflipping them into the air. He then plunges his claw into their back and flys upwards with the opponent, ending with a vertical slash. Vega gracefully falls on his feet and bows.
