The Uppercut is an upward swinging attack with one's fists. For whip wielders, it is often performed with the whip wrapped around the fist while leaping high up in the air, which may also count as a high jump depending on its height.
Game specific information
Guts Upper is a Bullet Soul which can be obtained from a Weretiger. When used, Soma will perform an uppercut while leaping a short distance straight up. However, using it in midair won't increase Soma's jump height.
Soma can gain this ability from the soul of a Hell Boar, this time called Max Upper. Unlike the uppercut from Aria of Sorrow, this time he will perform the move while standing on the ground.
