KOFXV Luong Profile.png

Introduction

Luong is a femme fatale type fighter with mysterious motives. She can and will lacerate her enemies like a whip with her long legs and her arranged tae kwon do kicking techniques.

This KOF, she’s seemingly working in opposition to her lover Gang-il and his disciple Kim, but perhaps all is not how it seems…

Gameplay Overview

Luong is a character who made her debut in the previous game, KOFXIV.

Her game plan at that time was relatively simple: She excels at fighting at the mid-range while setting the target up for high-damage combos. Luong is one of the more relatively easier characters to play but making use of her mix-up potential from her insta-air overheads from Max Mode did require a bit of practice. With these aspects in mind, Luong was a relatively strong character whose game play lies in mid-to-close range neutral and using feints to bait enemies into making mistakes.

The character is also known to have a lot in common with Yamazaki, particularly with how their feints work from their special moves and the fact that a part of their game play lies in punishing targets heavily for their mistakes aftering baiting them out.

She also has options to exploit while in midair, her jumping air 214+K. This is jumping cartwheel that enables enables her to slightly change the trajectory of her landing and also build meter. In addition, she can also cancel some of her jumping normals into air 214+K which can yield some rather devastating mix-ups and damage, specifically when going from jumping A (light punch) and then canceling into her EX 214+K which yields a full combo and will still hit overhead and will even cross targets up depending on whether the user hops forward or not. This was specifically exploitable from Max Mode canceling from a light normal.

As of now, she is still capable of this feat in the mix-up department, thus is likely to become a major threat once again as she was in KOFXIV.

This aspect of Luong remains largely the same. As of this time, she has a new move from 214+P, where she delivers two kicks to send the target flying. The EX version serves as a wall bounce (wall wire) for combo extensions, which offers the player more creative combo potential. The regular versions of 214+P enable her to either end combos and also super cancel into her Desperation Moves when either of them land successfully.

Another addition is her 236+A, 236+B, 236+C which normally enables players to hold the corresponding button and feint out the rapid kick strikes with D while keeping them held. What the player can do in addition to this is dash cancel, which will have its own uses.

If the player is looking for a relatively simplistic approach with a variety of options for baiting out the enemies mistakes from her special moves, Luong is an excellent character to pick up and is pretty fun to play.

Luong does a quick angled kick aimed towards the opponents head/neck. Cannot be special cancelled although where it shines is versus air approaches. f.B can stuff hops very effectively. Vulnerable to lower hitting moves.

Luong throws her left hand out and strikes the opponent. Startup is a bit slow yet this move does not whiff on crouchers unlike her other far normals and allows her to cancel into special moves. Cannot be cancelled on whiff either so full commitment is needed. Effectively a longer f.A and is disjointed. Loses to lower profile moves.

  • Whiffs on crouchers.

Luong swings her leg in an upwards position, this move is really solid and one of her best anti airs. Due to its angle, it helps versus rising hops and jumps although cannot be special cancelled. Use this move, even if riskier than her other anti airs the damage will be higher regardless.

  • Multi hitting, either hit may be cancelled.

Luong strikes her opponents chest and then neck. Great hit confirm although on hit grants less damage than c.D. Both hits hit crouchers and due to both hits being cancellable you can catch your opponent off guard by cancelling it early.

Luong's main anti air if crouching, 2C lacks range but is surprisingly effective despite looking stubby. The great angle can allow for decent reward for good reactions, relatively safe too when used as an anti air. No reason to use this for grounded opponents over c.D and c.C.

80 Low - 10 - - +18 -12 - 70 120
  • She can do that??

Luong does the splits in her best crouching normal, this move is ridiculous and puts her at such a low profile that it can genuinely anti air moves. One of her best pokes for its speed/low profile and since its special cancellable it can be made safe with ease. Use this move, seriously.

  • Luong's blowback is actually really good due to it being forward moving and so disjointed, Luong gets good reward off raw blowback too. Use this in niche situations since it can also hit crouchers. It can also anti air opponents hops at longer ranges due to the tip of her foot reaching so far making it a really nice option if you feel it will reach.

  • Luongs only grounded overhead, slow yet very effective. Where it lacks in speed, it makes up for in reach. 6B reaches a good distance and can actually work as a counter poke versus lower hitting moves for instance Iori 2D. Also a big part of her combo and pressure game, she can combo her heavies into 6B and then special cancel for big confirms. This gives her longer to hitconfirm than prior and ups her damage considerably. May be used as a frametrap from heavies to bait out mashers. Use this for quick max too since outside of being cancelled into you cannot special cancel. Great tool and crucial to use.

  • Can hold A/B/C to delay the kick until release
  • Delay stance can be cancelled into other follow-ups after ??F

Luong quickly kicks her leg in three different directions.

  • A version aims upwards. Whiffs on crouchers but is effective versus jumpers and used in juggles. Great anti air and can snipe people with ease making it frustrating to fight versus.
  • B version is a forward slash. Less range than it looks like it has but still great. Not as useful compared to A or C but has its place in stopping people from running at you and for ending juggles where you cannot do A or 214A/C.
  • C version is a low strike. This will be your main pressure ender for safe blockstrings since the pushback is immense and it reaches far. Not really good for juggles but shines in being safe and a good block check. Being even on hit greatly benefits it too.
  • EX Geki is really good. One of the best punishers in the game since its 2 frames and has decent range. Don't overestimate its range though since the multi hits will whiff if you go too far out. Side switches and gives hard knockdown on hit allowing for mixups on the opponents wakeup. Will be one of your most important moves since this is a one of a kind type move and no other character has this unique benefit.

  • Luong dash cancels her Geki stance. Although this doesn't build meter whereas Geki would, this move is more utilised for mixups and for mobility. While it's not that fast, it can be a good tool to catch a blocking opponent off guard and gives them more to be worried about. Don't overuse this on block though since opponents will start to stuff your dash and punish you heavily. Geki stance is counter hit vulnerable so learning how to do the dash cancel instantly will be key for this move to be as effective as possible.

  • Luong cancels her Geki stance by pressing D. Not as much to say compared to dash cancel but good for throw mixups. On block this will mostly be a close quarters option where when cancelled you can go into a grab which is completely unreactable. In neutral this is a niche option compared to dash cancel but can work to fake your opponents out and cause them to make assumptions about what your'e about to do.

  • Luong's best move. I cannot stress enough how important this move is.
  • All versions crossup yet do not hit overhead despite being air only.
  • B version will be your go to version of this move due to how fast it is and how plus on block it can potentially be. When tiger kneed this move is completely unreactable but the drawback to this is it can only be performed in the air so using it on wakeup is preferred compared to blockstrings. On hit you can go into a juggle with EX 214BD or go for nasty setups.
  • D version is good but slower and less plus on block but to make up for it has a bigger hitbox and keeps her suspended in the air for a bit. Same pros mostly apply, has its uses where B version may not reach in time for the opponents wakeup.
  • EX Ren is unique because on hit the opponent isn't knocked back, they are put in place for juggles with 214B after making it a great way to open someone up. The trade-off is far worse frame data than the other two versions but this move certainly has its place. Due to its ridiculous speed too, this is a great option for short hops.
