Normals

Close

  • cl.A/B/C/D are special cancellable
  • cl.A chains into itself
  • cl.B is negative on block and best used within combos
  • cl.D does good guard damage and is fast for a cl.D, slightly negative on block

Stand

  • only s.A is special cancellable
  • s.A chains into itself
  • s.B is a great horizontal spacing tool
  • s.D has a steep upward angle that makes it a decent anti-air tool. On crouching opponents it will it near the end of its active frames. On smaller crouching opponents such as Chin or Bao it will whiff completely

Crouch

  • cr.A/C/D are special cancellable
  • cr.A/B chain into themselves and each other
  • cr.C has a totally vertical hitbox that is useful as an ant-air
  • cr.D is whiff cancellable
  • all his crouching normals are safe to -1 on block
  • many of Ryo's BnBs stem from his cr.A/B starters

Jumping

  • NOTE: all of Ryo's jumping normals have neutral and forward versions. These sometimes interact with character sizes differently locking or unlocking angles of attack.
  • j.A:neutral is a downward elbow. Forward/backward is a chop
  • neutral j.A can hit crouching medium and large characters, but will whiff on small character like Yuri, Bao, Kula etc
  • j.B: neutral is a downward knee. Forward/backward is a horizontal kick
  • neutral j.B's downward angle allows it to hit on all character size classes
  • because of the horizontal angle of forward j.B it has limited crossup possibilities
  • forward j.B will whiff on the smaller characters
  • j.C: neutral is a quick horizontal punch. Forward/backward is a downward angled punch. Hop neutral j.C is also the downward angled strike
  • j.C is Ryo go-to jump in tool. It has nice ambiguous crossup properties.
  • j,D: neutral is a spinning air roundhouse with an upward angle. Neutral hop D is also the spinning kick. Forward/backward is a downward angled kick
  • j.D in neutral hop is a decent air to air for certain situations, but at full neutral jump the angle to a bit high to be useful. Hop j.D can be used as jump in on large opponents.
  • j.D in normal and super jumps are a good jump in tool to start combos, but it has a deceptive hitbox that starts more toward Ryo's ankle and is not very big leaving it an imperfect tool with a tendency to whiff.
  • j.D as a jump in will whiff completely on smaller characters like Bao, Chin etc
  • j.D does have crossup ability which is much easier to judge on larger characters

Blowback

  • Ryo's s.CD is quite fast and is even on block
  • s.CD is whiff cancellable which gives Ryo an interesting advancement ability by canceling into qcf+C or by staying in pressure by canceling into one of Ryo's parry command moves
  • s.CD will whiff on crouching smaller characters
  • j.CD has a slight upward angle that makes it whiff on crouching characters leaving it largely as an air to air move

Throws

Tana Otoshi - (close b/f + C)

  • causes hard knockdown

Tomoe Nage - (close b/f + D)

  • causes soft knockdown
  • Ryo throws the opponent behind him 100% of the screen

Command Moves

Hyouchuu Wari - (f + A)

  • Ryo slides forward with a thunderous chop
  • you can combo into it, but not out of it except to cancel into BC mode
  • if done raw it is an overhead

Joudan Uke - (f + B)

  • Ryo throws out his palm and forearm parrying the opponents next move
  • this move essential eats up some or all of the active frames of your opponents moves.
  • this version will parry mids and high attacks, but not lows
  • if timed correctly it can parry both hits of a 2 hit normal such as Lin's cl.C
  • this version will parry most mid fireballs like Athena's or Kensou's, but not low fireball like Iori's
  • it can cancel normals into Ryo's parry from block stun allowing for blockstring mixups if you think your opponent will try to attack.
  • it can be thrown out of the parry by normal and command throws

Gedan Uke - (df + B)

  • Ryo blasts a fist angled to the ground, parrying the opponents low attacks
  • parries low normals and low fireballs like Iori's
  • like the mid/high parry a wonderful move to make your opponent think twice from throwing out moves in block stun
  • it can still be hit by some of the slower sweeps in the game if mistimed
  • it can be thrown be normal and command throws
