Introduction

Tiny shoto child #1. Chonrei sports good fireballs, zippy movement, reliable combos, good anti-airs, a supremely dumb jumping normal in his j.C, and the ability to low profile all sorts of stuff. You've probably guessed that Chonrei mostly wants to chuck fireballs and anti-air people for trying to jump over them, and you'd be right. He can also just roll right under them and get a guaranteed punish courtesy of his Transcendent Dragon rolls. These rolls, amazingly, enable him to get around some higher-hitting Breakshots and generally annoy people for trying to hit him. But none of this makes up for his lack of any sort of real overhead threat. He can tick throw better than most people, but if he doesn't have the life lead or his opponent can contest his zoning, he starts to struggle. But his overall toolkit is solid, so he's still great for shoto players looking for a slightly different flavor to their usual archetype.

Pros Cons
  • Some of the quickest ground movement in the game
  • Great basic shoto tools
  • S-Power lets him cut off huge swathes of screen space
  • Transcendent Dragon rolls enable low profile punishes and tick throws
  • j.C is a great crossup
  • Can't combo into any of his supers
  • Lame buttons outside of j.C
  • Low burst damage combined with lacking high/low mixup renders comebacks difficult
  • Slow and hard to use P-Power

Normals

Standing

5A
RBFF2 Chonrei 5a.jpg
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Advantage Block Advantage Guard Cancel BS Juggle
8 - 5 2 10 4 0 HL Y - -

Standard mid-height jab. You can pretty reliably press this while dashing forward.

(within 48 px of opponent)
RBFF2 Chonrei n5a.jpg
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Advantage Block Advantage Guard Cancel BS Juggle
8 - 5 2 10 4 0 HL Y - -

Close range mash jab. An effective bullying tool when used right.

5B
RBFF2 Chonrei 5b.jpg
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Advantage Block Advantage Guard Cancel BS Juggle
10 - 6 3 12 1 -3 HL Y - -

This starts Chonrei's highest damaging chain combo sequence, so get used to pressing this for punishes.

(within 42 px of opponent)
RBFF2 Chonrei n5b.jpg
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Advantage Block Advantage Guard Cancel BS Juggle

Same deal as his far 5B.

5C
RBFF2 Chonrei 5c.jpg
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Advantage Block Advantage Guard Cancel BS Juggle
23 - 8 6 20 0 -6 HL N - -

The weak priority means it won't see much neutral use but if you don't think you can dash in for a 5B chain combo punish, this also works.

n.5C
(within 61 px of opponent)

Crouching

2A
RBFF2 Chonrei 2a.jpg
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Advantage Block Advantage Guard Cancel BS Juggle
8 - 5 2 10 4 0 HL Y - -

Strangely disjointed crouching jab. A good counterpoke with chain combo options.

2B
RBFF2 Chonrei 2b.jpg
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Advantage Block Advantage Guard Cancel BS Juggle
10 - 6 3 12 1 -3 L Y - -

A low risk option to try and force the opponent to block low and turtle.

2C
RBFF2 Chonrei 2c.jpg
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Advantage Block Advantage Guard Cancel BS Juggle
23 - 8 3 20 KD -3 L Y - -

Despite Chonrei getting pretty low on the ground this move's low profile is essentially nonexistent. It's still a quick cancellable sweeping option and safe on block so it still has uses.

Command

Extremely slow overhead. The kara cancel window potentially enables Transcendent Dragon fakeouts but this move overall loses hard to mash and active defense.

High Avoid Attack

Like Chonshu's this is an underwhelming High Avoid. It tends to lose out or simply trade rather than beat stuff.

A pretty good move to press to stomp people trying to go underneath you.

Diagonal Jump 19 - 9 4 8 +15 +4 H N - -

Genuinely insane button with great crossup potential. Combine this with air turnaround for some truly ambiguous crossups.

Throw

Blast Away
4/6C

26 - - - - - - - - - -

Standard throw that keeps the opponent in front of you. Sends them far enough away that you can either chase them into the corner or set up your fireball game again.

Feints

Feint Empire Destiny
2BC

Takes a bit long to be a pressure feint. It instead can fake the opponent into jumping to get around your S-Power.

Special Moves

C 16 - 16 - 56 total -4 -6 - HL Y Y

Really really nice and quick fireball with two very useful travel speeds. This combined with a lot of dashing forms the crux of your neutral. It's a half-decent Breakshot too.

Standard DP that anti-airs and ends soome combos. The invincibility isn't all that great and if used early it has a nasty tendency to trade. But the quick startup lets you reliably use this as a deep anti-air to shut down jumpers.

Annoying low profile roll; hold B to roll farther. You can go under all sorts of stuff from jumps to Breakshots or even just stuff during neutral and punish them, either with a throw or a full combo. Learn to love this move.

Emperor God Bop
66A
RBFF2 Chonrei 66a.jpg

28 - 7 9 28 -1 -7 HL - - -

Short ranged elbow strike with annoyingly long recovery on whiff. Outclassed by 666A.

Extended Emperor God Bop

RBFF2 Chonrei 666a.jpg
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Advantage Block Advantage Guard Cancel BS Juggle
28 - 7 18 8 -1 -7 HL - - -

The main differece here is that Chonrei goes way farther forward and has significantly shorter recovery. Sadly no matter which version you use your pressure is limited by being left at minus frames on hit. It's still a good tool to represent at midrange and try to bully your opponent out of your space. Or just to move around and get under their jump.

Emperor Blast

28 - 33 - 65-120 KD 22 HL - Y -

Restores 14 health points on hit Mini Chonshu S-Power. The healing and damage aren't good enough to warrant risking the huge recovery this has on whiff.

S-Power

Empire Destiny Blow

20,20,20,20(67) - 31 - 85 total -19 -21 HL - - -

Can absorb up to 4 projectiles Despite being an S-Power, you need at red health to use this effectively, because each shot after the first one costs a chunk of meter, and the initial shot will completely drain your meter if your health is too high. With that out of the way, this is a good way to fill the screen with projectiles, and you can delay each shot for an incredibly long time to fake the opponent into thinking they can approach.

Empire Destiny Slash

13*5(61) - 35-41 - 85 total 7 4 HL - N -

Holding down BC will cause the projectile to travel forward with no hitbox, releasing BC will make it expand into a stationary multi-hitting projectile. This is a fantastic way to prevent the opponent from approaching you on the ground, allowing you to punish Oversway movement or careless jumps appropriately. It's also a threatening chip option at low life.

P-Power

The slow startup prevents this from being useful for any real purpose other than hard read midrange anti-airs. And it's not even very good at that.
