Overview

Slash

Bust

[ Info Needed ]
Pros Cons
  • High jump trajectory
  • Solid normals with A and D buttons
  • Slash has puff ball for setups
  • Bust specials and WFT are overall (slightly) better
  • Basara Virus: In other words, Basara has increased stagger, jankier hitboxes and as a result, has Basara exclusive combos, several of which will kill him, and are usually pretty easy, too. Especially on backhit.
  • Tied lowest health
  • Normally relies on his C normals for damage
  • Utilizes CD combos poorly, and has few combos
  • Almost all special moves suck
  • No real reason to ever pick Slash
  • Fundamentally playing a game that doesn't fit Samsho 4's pace

Slash

  • CD BBC > 236S
  • (Corner) CD combo (whiff cancel 2nd hit) xx WFT > 2S OTG
Does not work against Nakoruru, Hanzo, Galford, Kyoshiro, or Genjuro. For this combo to work, after Basara lands the first hit of CD, he must perform the second hit and immediately whiff cancel it into WFT before the active frames come out. The WFT combos into the initial hit of CD where the hitstun is significantly higher. If the second hit of CD connects, the opponent will recover in time and be able to block Basara's WFT leaving him wide open for a punish. Think of it like a plink or kara cancel when performing the whiff cancel.
