Gatoray has shared some interested tech involving characters using jump normals (while hopping), ground normal attacks & certain special moves to evade high height travelling projectiles!
Notes from Gatoray:
In KOF XIV, Many Characters can dodge fireball by using small jump, because maybe hitbox is changed when hopping.
But, I wish to say that iori, gang-il, meitenkun, kensou, chang small jump isn’t reliable, especially chang is worst.
