Gameplay Overview

Chang is a somewhat unorthodox character. His strengths are mostly related to his reach with his chained ball. His j.CD is by far his best normal, mostly due to its active frames and reach. It is quite hard to challenge and it is mostly challenged by invincible reversals. Aside from j.CD his gameplay revolves around trying to approach with his slide (df+A), erasing fireballs and putting pressure with his ball spin (mash A or C) and with the clever use of his supers. His combo potential and conversion damage is very limited, but he makes up for it with burst damage when he lands his supers. He has a command grab and generally his movement speed is very limited.



  • st. A is good to use as an anti-air for stopping hops. neutral on block, Whiffs on crouching opponents except for Chang himself.
  • st. B is a short front kick that is special cancel-able and whiff cancel-able
  • st. C is horizontal shoulder height ball swing. Good to use for mid-screen zoning, and to use as an preemptive anti-air. Whiffs on crouching opponents. Not cancel-able.
  • st. D is a low round kick that hits mid. Good range, good push back on block, but not cancel-able.


  • cl. A/B/D are cancel-able
  • cl. A is a short back hand punch that can be easily cancelled into his hcb,f+P command throw or df+A
  • cl. B and st. B are the same
  • cl. C is a two hit downward ball swing attack that is neutral on block. Not cancel-able.
  • cl. D is a special cancel-able side kick


  • cr. A/B/C/D are cancel-able
  • cr. A is a good ranged elbow attack
  • cr. B is a short range low kick
  • cr. C can be used as a grounded anti-air to stop opponents from jumping over you, but its relatively slow
  • cr. D is a swings his ball and chain at the opponent's feet to sweep them. Special and whiff cancel-able


  • j. A is a jumping punch that aims at a downward angle. Good to use as a late air-to-air attack, or ground-to-air anti-air close range hops and jumps in advance. Whiffs on crouching opponents
  • j. B is a short jump kick is a good jump-in attack to start combos
  • j. C is good to use to try to zone the opponent to stop incoming hops and jumps at a mid-range in advance. Hit box aims at a diagonal downward angle. Whiffs on crouching opponents if too close
  • j. D is a jumping deep angled side kick. A bit hard to use as a deep jump-in combo because it spaces Chang far away to connect into his close standing normals.

Blowback st. CD - Chang throws his belly at the opponent. Nice range but not cancel-able j.CD - Chang swings his ball at an diagonal angle toward the opponent. Good for maintaining space, and pressure. Whiffs on crouching opponents if released too closely.

Command Move

Hiki Nige [Hit and Run] - (df + A)

  • Chang picks his nose. If a move is countered, Chang sneezes.

  • First and second hit are overhead, also OTG
  • If the first hit misses or is blocked, Chang only does 1 more hit, if the first hit connects, the rest of the move will follow
  • If it hits correctly on OTG, the opponent will be brought back to standing position

0 Stock


 ★ cr.Ax1~2, [P]

Meterless bnb as a decent hitconfirm into mashball. You can cancel mash immediately with ABCD for better frame advantage or keep it active to pressure the opponent's guard on block. Preferred bnb near the corner. 25%.

 ★ cr.A, cr.A/cl.B, hcb,f+P

Other meterless bnb with better damage and hard knockdown but much more unsafe on block. 27/28%.
  • cr.C, d,d+K
cr.C is too slow and lacking range for this to land too often. 18%.
  • (against standing opponent) st.CD/cr.D, [P] cancel, d,d+K
Good way to take advantage of cr.D/st.CD's range to make it safe on block and convert a hit. Characters with a recovery roll faster than Billy's -for cr.D- or Iori's -for st.CD- can do that and avoid d,d+K. To immediately cancel mash, it's preferable to mash ABCD together instead of just A/C. 17/18%.

1 Stock


 ★ cr.A, cr.A/cl.B, qcfx2+A

1 bar bnb with a decent hitconfirm. However, it is punishable on hit so best kept to end the round. Input it as cr.A, qcf, cr.A/cl.B, qcf+A. 35%.


  • qcf,hcb+P (close B finisher that appears randomly), [P]
Random super conversion. 53%.

2 Stocks


  • cr.C, d,d+K, (SC) qcfx2+K
Only good damage you'll get for meter without being punishable on hit but cr.C is too slow and lacking for this to land too often. 48%.


  • qcf,hcb+P (close B finisher that appears randomly), qcfx2+A
Random super conversion. However, it is punishable on hit so best kept to end the round. 64%.

3 Stocks


  • cr.A, cr.A/cl.B, qcfx2+AC
3 bar conversion with a decent hitconfirm. Punishable on hit and poor damage not worth it. Input it as cr.A, qcf, cr.A/cl.B, qcf+AC. 40%.

4 Stocks


  • qcf,hcb+P (close B finisher that appears randomly), qcfx2+AC
Random super conversion. However, it is punishable on hit if the opponent techs the knockdown so best kept to end the round. If the opponent techs, 69%; if they don't, 92%.
