  • Can be broken

  • Standard grab

Command Moves

Kurokami - f + A

  • Kyo-1 steps in while shifting his body forward and strikes(Like a flameless Poison Gnaw Fest). Kurokami is a decent command move due to it being able to cancel all special moves,DM's,SDM,and HSDM. It do not come out slow nor fast, and its one of the very few pokes he has. Kurokami can be mainly utilized as an poke and pressure tool. Some cons about this move is that although it Can cancel into all of his specials, it will not combo into some specials(Dark Thrust and New wave Smash)and his SDM(Serpent Wave).

Honofuri - f + B

  • Kyo-1 takes two steps forward and uses his elbow to perform a overhead. Honofuri is a tricky overhead that has good speed and it deals good damage.

Intensetaneous Smash - df + C

  • Kyo-1 strikes bends down to his knees and strikes the ground(OTG). Intensetaneous Smash is a very reliable command move. When you perform a BnB or any combo that knocks an opponent to the ground and they fail to tech, Intensetaneous Smash is the best tool to punish. Cons for this command move is nonexsistent due to the fact that it should only be used as an OTG.

Special Attacks

Dark Thrust - qcf + A/C

  • Kyo-1 creates a fire in his hand and spikes it to the floor traveling towards the opponent. Dark thrust is a unique projectile. Unlike most projectiles Dark thrust comes out very slow and Can connect even if opponent is down. When you perform a combo and cannot reach the opponent for a df+C its best to resort to dark thrust for the OTG damage. It also has bad recovery so be mindful when using to zone.

Spinning Kick - dp + B/D

  • Kyo-1 performs a jumping roundhouse kick(B Version), Kyo-1 performs a two aerial roundhouse kicks and Knocks the opponents hard to the ground bry ending with an somesault heel kick. Spinning kick is Kyo-1 best special attack. It has most damage(varies from B or D), Combos from an launch, and its B version can be used as an anti-air. Spinning kick is primarily used in his BnB due to the lack of speed and reach most of his special attacks have.

New Wave Smash - qcf + B/D~K

  • Kyo-1 Performs a rising kick and can follow up with another airbourne. New wave Smash(Like every other variation)is primarily used as a launch attack. Kyo-1's New wave Smash is fast but has poor range.

Blue Ogre - qcb + A/C

  • Kyo-1 dashes forward while striking with his elbow and if it connects he performs a rising shoulder attack. Blue Ogre is a decent special attack. It comes out very fast and is super cancelable. Some drawbacks that this special move has is that its reach is very poor and leaves Kyo-1 completely open if blocked/whiff. Its best to use Blue Ogre as a punish tool.


Serpent Wave - qcb, hcf + A/C(Push down to hold)

  • Kyo-1 Creates a small flame in his palm and then throws creating a large spark knocking the opponent back. Serpent Wave is on of the main reasons why Kyo-1 is dangerous at close range. It does good damage, can be canceled/combo into from a majority of his moves set, and has good range. When holding down on A/C the damage will not increase nor will it become unblockable.

Vermillion Heaven Exorcism - qcf x 2 + A/C

  • Kyo-1 smashes the ground then a large flame circle his hand then swiftly burn across the ground. VHE is a combination of his Intensetaneous Smash and Dark Thrust and share both properties. The versions A/C dictate its effects. A version comes out very fast compared to his C, It launches the opponent airbourne and can combo into. The C version is very slow, Has very great hitstun, and cannot combo. Even though the C version takes longer the damage does not change.

3 stock

midscreen BC combo using SDM instead (supercancel from the second hit of qcb+C, you have the option of holding it to hit them with the flame a little first)

  • any BC combo... qcf+D.D, qcb,hcf+BD HSDM
  • j.X, s.C, f+A, qcb,hcf+BD HSDM
  • c.B, c.B, s.B, df+C, qcb+BC, hcf+BD HSDM (max bypass)

Note that s.D does more damage than s.C but also pushes back further which makes it iffy for certain combos. You can activate after a qcf+D.D in the corner and loop qcb+A, qcf+B.B multiple times and then finish the combo, but it's ridiculously hard to do so I would say it's not practical.


  • j.A, j.B and j.C can all be used to crossup. j.C only works on standing or large crouchers. j.A is the most consistent.
  • qcfx2+C DM will stun the opponent allowing a followup if only the fireball part hits them (hits low). qcfx2+C has invincibility.
  • qcb,hcf+BD has complete invincibility until you let it go (can be held by holding BD)
  • qcb,hcf+A has lower body invincibility, C version has upper body.
