OverviewStrategyDataCombosReplays

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 neutral based character who uses her kick specials to harass opponents at long range.

Luong can easily instill fear in her opponents by threatening them with her varied options, mainly by using Geki as a mind game tool. Apart from neutral, another trait of hers is combo structure. About half of her Special Moves give access to easy combos on hit, metered or meterless, which is something not everyone has. She has a simple gameplan - Poke, land a hit, do a big combo, repeat. She does have several advanced techniques, but it's not required at the basic level. Luong is a perfect character for players who like having access to good neutral buttons and combos, as well as players who love labbing big combos and finding new ways to make existing combos even better. She can function well anywhere in the team, as she is not overly reliant on meter, so she is probably best used in the Point or Mid positions.
Pros Cons
  • Simple and Clean Gameplan: Luong is very easy to pick up and play. She wants to poke with her long kick specials before forcing an air approach, anti-airing it, and going into a combo. Simple, easily understood, and very effective.
  • Good Close-Range Offense: Good standing buttons and great crossup options make Luong intimidating to fight at close range. This compliments her long-range game very well. Her 6B is also a good overhead, making her mixup game overall quite strong.
  • Stellar Combo Game: Luong has great combo opportunities, with tons of paths based on relative position to the opponent or her chosen opener. She tends to build a lot of meter without needing to spend much for big damage, making her a great choice for teams that have meter-heavy characters on them.
  • Choice Overload: Luong can get very complex at higher levels thanks to the sheer depth of her combo choices. Knowing which moves to combo into at specific effective ranges are central to performing well, but she is very simple at lower levels.
  • Spacing Dependent: Luong's poking gameplan is at odds with her combo potential. She can have difficulties actually getting close enough to do her big combos, as her furthest-range combos deal much less damage.
  • Floaty Jump: She has one of the floatier jumps in the game, making it harder to do hop pressure than your average character, although that floatiness helps make her j.214K more effective.


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 gameplay lies in punishing targets heavily for their mistakes after baiting them out.

She also has options to exploit while in midair, her jumping air 214+K. This is her jumping cartwheel that 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 she remains a major threat just 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 lands 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 enemy's mistakes from her special moves, Luong is an excellent character to pick up and is pretty fun to play.

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.

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.

Luong strikes her opponents chest and then neck. Fast at 4f, and a 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.

  • Can be chained from lights and into other lights.

Luongs fastest normal and without a doubt her best hit confirm. May be chained into itself three times and then can be cancelled into specials, most likely 214B. Good for stagger pressure and really reliable move although short range.

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 cl.D and cl.C.

Luong does the splits in her best crouching normal. This move 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 often.

  • Luong's blowback is one of the best in the game due to it moving forward and being so disjointed. She also gets good reward off raw blowback, too. Use this often to establish a midscreen game, especially since it can hit crouchers unlike many of her far normals. It can also anti-air opponents hops at longer ranges due to the tip of her foot reaching so far, making it cover multiple angles.
  • Good luck actually punishing this on block due to the pushback and the fact that Luong can just cancel into 236B to keep you away from her.
  • With its forward momentum, the ability to kara cancel, and with the Geki Cancel, this is also a(n unconventional) godlike approach tool, too.

  • 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 a great move. For its range, it has the ability to punish more minus moves on block efficiently and gives a hard knockdown sideswitch on hit which can really turn the tides of some matches. Being able to pressure with j.214B/D/BD after makes this one of your best moves.

  • 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 you're about to do.
  • You can also really screw with the opponent's timing by using this in tandem with her CD. Or even render it safe. Either way, use this the most with either 2D or CD to stay safe.

  • 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 done instantly from the ground via a tiger knee input (2149B), 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.

  • All versions put Luong in an airborne state, meaning you cannot super cancel from this move alone.
  • B version is your main special for metered combos. Can be comboed into from lights, mainly 2B for low confirms making it a reliable combo tool and one of her best. Bare in mind due to this moves short range you may whiff it in longer hit confirms but it should be noted the hitbox is a bit disjointed. On hit, allows for juggles afterwards so make sure to keep that in mind. Not useful in pressure, it's quite minus and even when spaced you are very vulnerable.
  • D version whilst less useful will still have its place. D version is slower but on hit launches the opponent higher allowing for more juggle options. Cannot be comboed into from lights but only heavies making it more niche and a harder move to use without good hits. Although less minus on block, don't use it in blockstrings since she has safer tools.
  • The EX version as a starter is good but where it truly shines is at the start of juggles.
  • This move can avoid some projectiles when it is ACTIVE, including Athena's Psycho Ball.

  • A version is good for combos where C version would whiff but where C is available A becomes useless due to it only being a soft knockdown. Not a good combo starter either due to it knocking back. Has its uses.
  • C version is your main way to get hard knockdowns without super; in her 0.5 combos this becomes your main ender and is incredibly effective. Since you are so ridiculously plus you can practically set anything up. Can be used midscreen or corner for good oki but in midscreen they get knocked back hard so you cant really set anything up compared to corner.
  • EX version is good for combos and an amazing starter. This move wallsplats allowing for juggles afterwards with her 214B/D but be weary when in the corner as you will sideswitch due to the wallbounce. This extends your combos well and gives you strong damage with minimal meter.
  • The second hit can be easily ducked under and punished, so exercise caution when using this.

  • Your go to super for either going into her other supers or upclose. At range this super can whiff so be aware of spacing. Up close, the B/D versions keep the opponent closer to Luong whereas the BD leave them further, giving oki for B/D yet trading said oki for raw damage in BD. Her BD version goes through fireballs if you are close enough, this can be good but risky for sure.

  • This super is really not meant for climax cancelling or super cancelling at all due to it ending with a knockdown. You can still cancel it before Luong mounts the opponent, however - though you'll lose damage in the process.
  • Regular version has projectile invincibility. The level 2 version curiously does not.
  • Both versions are good for combos that leave them too far for 236236B/D/BD yet its to be noted that even this super can whiff if the opponent is too high, so time accordingly. The BD version is notable for being 5 startup so this could be a really great way to punish heavily in scenarios where 236AC might be unoptimal.

  • Usually cancelled from her 236236B/D/BD because as established above her 236214B/D/BD doesn't allow for super cancels. Also goes through fireballs like her 236236BD does making it astonishingly good for hard reads and can help you get in with ease if you play your cards right.

Geki Dash Cancel Shortcut

When you do 236A/B/C, input 6 right after so the inputs overlap and you just get the dash. The input should be 236(A/B/C)56. Not used for combos but in pressure this has so much potential for throw mixups and general resets. Use with care since the pressure resets will probably be caught on in longer sets and you will be punished. This can be a really sneaky way to open someone up though and a great option for general movement.
