Gameplay Overview

Big, slow, and powerful, the King of Dinosaurs is an unconventional grappler who uses the threat of his strong corner carry game to bully opponents. Use his 2A and 5B as dominant neutral pokes that easily convert into his 63214A Zetsumetsu Hurricane command grab for a hard knockdown, or 236AC Ankylo Hammer for a wallbounce followup. His far 5C, 2C, 4A and 63214C command throw all have guard point properties, allowing Dino to blow through predictable attacks and fireballs, force his turn on defense, and in general make the opponent have to approach him differently from other characters. On block, Dino has brake options on his 236A/C Ankylo Hammer attacks that shred the guard bar and safely reset his pressure, as well as decent crossup options in jB and jC. Unfortunately, Dino's lumbering frame is his biggest liability, and he is easily outmaneuvered by much of the cast. While his guard point moves provide unique solutions to fireballs, he struggles against KOFXV's dedicated zoners and still must make good use of his movement options and occasional hard reads to close the distance. Additionally, he is vulnerable to up-close pressure as well, as seasoned opponents can navigate between his slow, committal defensive options if used carelessly.

Play The King of Dinosaurs if you enjoy a methodical midrange game, unconventional offense that requires a lot of conditioning, and a cascade of hard knockdowns and explosive damage when everything works out. It is generally recommended to play him in either point or second position as only a handful of EX moves are required to enable his gameplan.
Pros Cons
  • Long range, special cancellable light normals.
  • Easy whiff punishes into hard knockdowns or corner carry.
  • Several attacks possess guard points, including one of his command grabs.
  • Needs very little meter to be effective (Mainly for 236AC).
  • Smothering pressure and high meterless damage potential in the corner.
  • Slow movement and big hurtbox cause him to struggle against zoners and high-mobility offense.
  • Heavy normals outclassed in speed and range by other comparably-sized members of the cast.
  • Very few efficient ways to add damage via EX moves. In particular, 236AC has inconsistent rewards based on his proximity to the corner that occasionally demand on-the fly decision making for optimization.
  • Unreliable interactions off of guard points.
  • Unconventional pressure: Dino has very few plus-on-block attacks and only one whiff cancellable option, so pressure is instead created by setting up spacing traps with his brake specials or directly challenging mashing with a high-commitment guard point move.

  • Same animation as 5CD. Guard point attack that costs one bar, but refunds half on successful hit. Crumples grounded opponents and wall-bounces airborne.
  • Done raw, standing hits can be followed up with 2D xxx 236C for respectable damage, while airborne hits can use the same follow-ups done after a 236AC wallbounce (and thus have many of the same drawbacks at certain screen positions).
  • Can be used in combos starting with heavy attacks. Here, the crumple can be picked up with 2C for highly damaging, meter positive combos.

  • Slow standing overhead. Punishable on block but can be made safe if spaced correctly. Can cancel into supers on hit or extended with quick max, but be aware that either option suffers from quite a bit of scaling and should only be used to secure a KO.
  • Loses its overhead property when used in combos but becomes special cancelable. Has a bad tendency to whiff if even slightly misspaced, so 4A is typically preferred in combos wherever possible. That said, 6A is the superior command normal for pressuring blocking opponents and is a critical tool in Dino's guard crush game.

60 Mid - 16 - - -3 -5 armored 5F-11F 100 -
  • Interesting move with several notable drawbacks.
  • Dino lunges forward with an upward-angled punch. Special cancellable. Very generous guard point during the startup, providing a unique grounded approach against even multi-hitting fireballs and pokes. Unfortunately, this is offset by the punch itself whiffing on all crouchers and -distressingly- even some shorter standing opponents.
  • Due to its massive forward range, this move absolutely shines in combos when used after starters that force stand (no height requirement here!), giving Dino access to great damage and corner carry options. Just be sure to confirm the hit before it, as 4A will still whiff against crouch blocking opponents. Given the immense guard point window, it can be used as a frame trap, but typically 2C is the better option here.
  • Despite appearances, 4A is a rather inconsistent anti air. The hitbox is narrower than the animation suggests and even jump attacks that trigger the guard point are not guaranteed to be hit in return. That said, hits on airborne opponents can be cancelled into 4214X or max mode for a high damage cash out, 236B/D for oki. Can also juggle into 236C, but can be difficult to hit consistently depending on how the opponent has been hit in the air.
  • Anti-air hits into quick max can lead to HUGE damage your opponent will take for hopping, with no counter hit or screen positioning limitations. If your opponent is getting predictable with their approaches, and you're tired of swatting their hops with 5A, this move is a huge cash out from an anti air.

  • Dino's command grab. All versions give hard knockdowns.
  • A version Starts up instantly, giving Dino punishes to typically safe moves. The range is on the short side but can also be cancelled into, making his 5B counterpokes quite dangerous.
  • C version Reactable start up, but guard points against attacks for most of the animation and also cannot be thrown. A good tool for discouraging opponents trying to take their turn back and forces them to develop specific counter play strategies. Will whiff if directly cancelled into on hit or block, but tick throws can be set up by manually delaying the input.
  • AC version Dino lunges forward to grab the opponent. Fast punish option on its own and can be comboed into on hit. Whiffs if cancelled into on block, but tick throws can be set in a similar way as the C version. Note that this move doesn't have a guard point, but is typically too fast to be stuffed on reaction.

  • Dino leaps forward to bite the opponent before kicking them away. All versions cause a hard knockdown, but advantage is dependent on screen position (e.g. more pressure opportunities on a cornered opponent). Quite a bit of landing recovery on whiff.
  • B version Dino leaps forward a short distance before landing. Capable of threatening with this move at the max range of 5B and 2B -regardless of hit or block- and low crushes reflexive mashing. Usually goes sailing over the opponent if not correctly spaced.
  • D version Dino leaps about 3/4ths of the screen. Can be used predictively to pounce on fireballs, but good opponents will usually be aware of the range he can threaten this.
  • Both meterless versions of Assault Raptor are quite gimmicky as direct attacks and hard to land on experienced players. However, these moves still see quite a lot of practical use, as whiffing them at the end of certain throws and combos leaves Dino close enough to a downed opponent to start his oki.
  • BC version Faster than the D version and tracks the opponent's position, making it a scarier anti-fireball tool. Dumps the opponent a set distance in front of Dino, but doesn't leave him plus enough to start any setplay.

  • A version Dino swipes twice with his claws. Can combo from lights but whiffs at max 2A range. The first hit is super cancellable, while the second hit blows the opponent away for a soft knockdown. The second hit can also connect OTG but isn't particularly useful. Negative on block, but pushes Dino decently far away from his opponent. An important pressure tool, 236A can be input as a half-circle motion to option select a command throw against opponents trying to roll past Dino.
  • C version Dino swipes three times, with the final hit spiking the opponent into a hard knockdown. The full sequence moves Dino a half-screen distance. There is a small gap between the second and third hit, allowing the opponent a window to reversal. Super cancels on the second and third hits, and the second hit can connect OTG. Very negative on block. Primarily used as a combo ender, or done raw to challenge the horizontal space in front of Dino.
  • AC version Dino performs two advancing swipes and then bull-rushes the opponent for a wall bounce and hard knockdown. Like the C version, there is a gap between the second and third hit. Can be cancelled into from lights, making this an essential combo extension tool for Dino. However, it does not connect at max 2A range. Common routes after the wall bounce include 4A, juggle or OTG 236C, or 214X for an immediate side switch. Juggle opportunities off 236AC are variable depending on Dino's distance to the corner, and thus good positional awareness and on-the-fly decision making is required for making the most from this move. Using this move on airborne opponents is not advised, as it loses both its wall bounce and juggle properties. Dino is left extremely negative and close to the opponent on block.

  • A version Brakes after the first claw swipe and leaves the opponent standing. Slightly negative on block, but the pushback allows Dino to potentially keep his turn regardless. Useful for bullying opponents in the corner.
  • C version Brakes after the second claw swipe. Launches the opponent into a juggle state on hit, leading to huge damage in the corner. Quite negative on block, but if spaced correctly can be made safe and can even bait opponents expecting to reversal between the second and third hit of 236C.

  • Dino bites the opponent's feet and hurls them over his shoulder for a hard knockdown. All versions hit mid, despite appearances.
  • B and D versions of this move have the same frame data and damage and can hit opponents OTG. Primarily used to throw opponents back into the corner after a suboptimal 236AC wall bounce or simply to tack on some additional damage after 236236B.
  • BD version Slightly faster than the unmetered versions, and can hit OTG even if one has already been used in a combo. Actually has invincibility to low attacks during the startup, and thus can be used as a pseudo-reversal option. Adds some damage if tacked on after a 236C or 236236B

  • "Anti-air" hit grab that whiffs on grounded opponents. Hitbox is narrower than the animation suggests. Can be used as a juggle combo ender after 4A or after far 5D in the corner. All versions give a hard knockdown, but are launched quite far from Dino unless near the corner.
  • B version Comes out the fastest, but has no invulnerability. As the damage of this move only occurs after a successful grab, trades against jump ins are super unfavorable for Dino.
  • D version Twice the startup time as the B version, but does have invulnerability. Still difficult to use against all but the most telegraphed of full jumps. Hits in combos in all the places that the B version does, and therefore should always be used for the extra damage.
  • BD version Moderately faster than the D version, and with invul. Unfortunately hitbox issues still make this an inconsistent anti air. Can be used to tack on more damage at the end of a combo, and get a better knockdown than the D version for a midscreen meaty, or a corner safejump.

  • Command grab super with a very satisfying cinematic. Can be cancelled into.
  • A or C version 3 frame startup with large immediate range. If done outside throw range, Dino dashes about half-screen forward to grab, but this can be jumped on reaction. Grants a hard knockdown.
  • AC version 1 frame command grab with large range. Outside of immediate throw range, Dino dashes a little further than the one bar version, but in general you really don't want to spend two bars to see this animation.
  • As a quirk of this being a command grab super, Dino is unable to cancel either version into a higher power super. Thus, even in raw max mode Dino is unable to access the Super -> MAX -> Climax route that other characters can.

  • B or D version Dino charges forward gnashing his teeth, ending with an upwards launcher. Some upper body invulnerability. Easy cancel after 236A or C and at the end of max range pokes. Importantly, this move recaptures airborne opponents, thereby guaranteeing a cancel into 6321463214AC if done before the final launch. Can be followed up with 214X or Climax post-launch.
  • BD version Same start up as the one bar version, but with full invincibility. Ends with damaging forward flip that hits as an overhead. The impact of the flip can be cancelled into Climax.
