Fighting just got a lot cooler.

5. The Stun Meter

Added from Third Strike, the Stun Meter will slowly rise with every attack you receive, though at a slower rate than the V-Gauge. So, to encourage aggressive players not to let up while on the offensive, all of their attacks will add to their opponent’s Stun Meter. When your opponent’s Stun Meter fills, they will fall to the ground, stars spinning above their heads, and then stand back up, stunned.

The other Street Fighter games have had this feature, but it was hidden in all of them, save Third Strike. Making it appear on the HUD encourages players to try and fill it faster, which in turn encourages a more aggressive style of play.
