the phenomenon that occurs when cartoon characters (or characters in general), esp. anime characters always shout out the names of their attacks before using them, therefore pointlessly notifying the opponent that they will use the attack on them, and giving the opponent a chance to fight back somehow. Named after Captain Falcon, a notable character with this syndrome
"Falcon Punch!" —Captain Falcon
"Why are you shouting the name of your attack? They'll know when to jump out of the way when you use it, you have Captain Falcon Syndrome"
