2. Ten no Tsumi - b/f+D

  • Chris grabs his opponent and throws them into the air behind him

  • a great grab because of back turned property and hard knockdown, giving Chris many options afterwards


Command Normals

1. Muyou no Ono - f+A

  • does very little damage but comes out fast enough to punish some fast recovering moves from a distance

  • overhead on the second hit
  • cancellable on the second hit if cancelled into

  • safe on block from many distances though it's best if it is spaced


Special Moves

1. Taiyou wo Iru Honoo - qcf+P

  • Chris sends forth three balls of flame that travel forward
  • qcf+A comes out faster than qcf+C and recovers faster allowing the possibility of comboing after them
  • qcf+C projectiles move faster than qcf+A and travel further (almost full screen length)


2. Kagami wo Hofuru Honoo - qcb+P

  • Orochi Chris jumps forward with a flame in front of him
  • the flame can negate projectiles but it comes out too slow and recovers too slow for this to be practical
  • does not combo against crouching characters
  • free cancellable into


3. Tsuki wo Tsumu Honoo - dp+P

  • Chris performs a rising uppercut attack that comes out fairly quick
  • this move does not have much vertical range compared to other dragon punch moves. dp+A does one hit in which Chris moves forward before rising, while dp+C does 4 hits, where he rises during the 4th
  • free cancellable into
  • free cancellable out of on the first three hits

4. Shishi wo Kamu Honoo - hcf+K

Strategies

Pressuring

High/Low Lockdown Mixup

Chris has a useful high/low mixup that involves late cancelling his close C or crouch C, into his f+B high attack or df+B low. It's difficult to react and if the opponent has no stocks, they are forced to block the mixup. The only way to punish it is using a guard roll right after the C but even then, it's not that easy and since the cancel is delayed, you can react to whether they guard rolled and not do the followup if they did.

Generally it's best to do this mixup from a crouch C, since it can come out from further away than a close C would, it acts as a better anti-air and you don't have to be afraid of his (bad) far C coming out in case you were out of range for close C to come out. However, the following characters can crouch under his crouch C:

K', Andy, Joe, Athena, Kensou, Chin, Benimaru, Mai, Yuri, Yashiro, Iori, Mature, Vice, Yamazaki, Billy, Leona, Kim, Choi, Kula, Angel
