Gameplay Overview

Normals

Standing

  • st. A: A standing jab that's a good anti-air against short hops. This move whiffs on some crouching characters. Start up of 6F and -1 on block.
  • st. B: A straight punch that is safe on block (+2). Can be used during neutral as a poke & to also anti-air hops.
  • st. C: This long ranged punch has slow start-up but has great horizontal range. This punch can stuff hops & incoming offense, so you can use this defensively as a poke, a max mode confirm and blowback bait. 9F start-up.
  • st. D: A hook punch can be used to whiff punish if possible and max mode cancel. Starts up at 11F and -5 on block.

Close

  • cl. A: One of his fastest normals (4f) and it's pretty safe(-2). It hits crouching opponents and chains into his F+B overhead command normal or crouching B (light kick).
  • cl. B: Whiffs on some crouching characters but it's 0F (neutral) on block and it can be linked into his crouching A or B. Can be chained into his command normals.
  • cl. C: This punch hits twice, which makes it a very easy to hit confirm and can be chained into his command normals.
  • cl. D: This special cancel-able close ranged uppercut can be used as a frame trap tool, hit confirm & is safe on block.

Crouching

  • cr. A: Same as his Far A. 4F start-up and -1 on block, can be linked after crouching B or Far A then you can command normal from it.
  • cr. B: Hits low, links into crouching A & SUPER easy to hit confirm with. 5F start-up & -2 on block good use for pokes.
  • cr. C: This is a very good anti air normal against long jumps and it is cancel-able into anything so that means mixups on the way down. This normal has a 6F start-up and -10 on block.
  • cr. D: Great ranged sweep and special cancel-able

Jumping

  • j. A: A very good air to air normal & great at checking opponents out & keeping them honest on the ground. Even though there's not much after you can get beside neutral being reset.
  • j. B: Hits twice coming down & you can whiff the second coming down to mixup. Good offense/pressure tool.
  • j. C: Your to go to jump normal with it being VERY active. Use it.
  • j. D: A jumping uppercut that hits at an upward angle.

Blowback

  • st. CD: Sends his opponent flying full screen, also cancel-able with special moves. 15F start-up and -4 on block.
  • j. CD: Very strong, straight, horizontal punch that can be used as an air-to-air normal.
