This technique is unique to Sasuke Uchiha, relying on his advanced physical condition and his "knack" for rapid combo attacks. Sasuke kicks a target into the air and follows close behind them. While in the air, Sasuke provokes the target into attacking him, giving him the chance to counter them and, in turn, kick them higher into the air at increasingly greater speeds. The higher up they get and the faster they move, the more damage that will be caused to the target when, as his finishing blow, Sasuke inevitably kicks them back to the ground.[1]

Sasuke copied the first two steps of the Lion Combo (the initial kick into the air and following his opponent) from Rock Lee, which are also the first two steps in Lee's Front Lotus.[2]
