Gameplay Overview

Health: 950

Normals

Standing

  • st. A: This jab can stop incoming close hops. Chains into other standing and crouching light normals. Whiffs on crouching opponents.
  • st. B: This kick has more range vertically and horizontally than st. A. Can hit crouching opponents.
  • st. C: Najd stays stationary while performing a twisting back hand punch. Whiffs on crouching opponents
  • st. D: Najd moves forward slightly while performing a round kick. Has more horizontal range than st. C and has a lower height vertically.


Close

  • cl. A: A special cancel-able quick elbow that can chain from other standing/crouching light normals. Links into cl.C.
  • cl. B: Not a low kick. Special cancel-able and can be chained from Najd’s other standing /crouching light normals.
  • cl. C: Najd twirls around & hits the opponent 4 times. Special cancel-able on the 4th hit.
  • cl. D: Hits twice. More damage than cl. C. Special cancel-able on the 1st or 2nd hit.


Crouching

  • cr. A: This crouching jab can be chain into itself or other standing and crouching light normals. Special cancel-able as well
  • cr. B: A chain-able crouching kick to be used to start combos starting low or as a short ranged poke
  • cr. C: MK2 uppercut because it pops the opponent in the air. Can be special cancelled on block or on hit to juggle afterwards Moves Najd forward a bit. Terrible anti-air. Unsafe on block.
  • cr. D: A sweep with good horizontal range. Special cancel-able.


Jumping

  • j. A: Hits at a downward angle but lacks vertical range.

  • j. D: A deep angled jump-in attack or to jump away with defensively. Can be used as an instant overhead.


Blowback
