What is the strategy to beat KoF2002 Um Boss Character?
« Reply #1 on: July 30, 2010, 04:57:50 PM »
I am playing Team Vs mode and I have hard time to beat those Kof 2002 Um Bosses..In fact, most of the time, I just beat them by outlive them with the timer (survival mode). I just can't beat them down under 60 seconds.

and what is the general strategy to beat those bosses, especially Rugal? It seems that I have very little opportunity to attack them since their attack have insane priority over my characters. Exchange move basically instant death for me. By the way, Jumping in boss battle is no-no, I presume?

P/S: I still can't beat Rugal with melee character.

EDIT: What is the different between Kof 2002 UM and Kof 2002 UM TOUGEKI?

I suggest linking some of the general pages from the wiki that discuss gameplay mechanics. I've complete the Kof2002 mechanics section:

It's scheduled to be out Fall 2010, so anywhere between now and the end of October

how is k9999

Hard to use, you must master the moon DM to be much of a threat though he does have some other abusable moves like qcb+B.

Anyway, made some additions to the OG 2002 general section, mainly this:


== Hopping/Jumping Heights ==

Not all characters have the same hopping/jumping heights. It is particularly important to know which characters have low hops and which don't, because it affects how easy it is for a character to hop over a projectile such as Athena's psychoball, as well as whether or not they are able to hyperhop over standing opponents. The below lists are based on whether the character is able to hyper hop over a standing Daimon.


Low: Maxima, Ryo, Takuma, Chin, Daimon, Yashiro, Iori, Yamazaki, Mary, Billy, Ralf, Clark, Chang, Kula, K9999

Medium: K', Whip, Robert, Terry, Kensou, Kyo, Yuri, Shermie, Chris, Mature, Vice, Kim, Vanessa, Seth, Ramon, Angel

High: Athena, Andy, Benimaru, Mai, May Lee, Leona, Choi



== Meter building ==

Not all character's strong attacks or weak attacks build the same amount of meter. For instance, Kula's weak attacks builds more meter per hit than Iori's. This section will be further updated for other details for now, here is the list of the amount of weak attacks it takes for each character to gain one full stock. Note that the same amount of stock gets built whether the attack hits or is blocked, though whiffing a normal does not build meter.


11 - Chang

14 - Maxima, Daimon, Clark, Vanessa, Kula

17 - Ryo, Andy, Benimaru, Iori, Mary, Ralf

22 - K', Robert, Terry, Joe, Athena, Kensou, Chin, Kyo, Kusanagi, Yuri, May Lee, Yashiro, Shermie, Chris, Vice, Yamazaki, Leona, Kim, Choi, Seth, Ramon, Angel

33 - Whip, Takuma, Mai, Mature, Billy, K9999


This is actually pretty interesting...Kula's pokes  are some of the most useful pokes in the game, and she happens to build a ton of meter doing it, moreso than the majority of the cast.

You aren't going to land stand D in a combo.

j.D, s.D does combo you just have to do j.D late. But qcfx2+K seems to wiff after s.D, it is also possible to do j.D, s.D, dd+K but it will not super cancel to qcfx2+K

You have to do the jump D very very late, and even then, the stand D will miss against almost all crouching opponents. There's no point in trying this. Just go for close B or crouch A after landing.
