Story

Robert is the only son of Albert Garcia, a wealthy Italian businessman and friend of Takuma Sakazaki. Robert had a care free childhood and often observed Ryo's training under Takuma with curiosity. One day Robert decided to join Takuma's dojo, which Takuma agreed to. Robert excelled at his training, which convinced Takuma to try and push Ryo harder as Ryo fell behind. When Takuma dissapeared on Ryo's 10th birthday, Robert was forced to head home to continue his family business, but vowed to return to see Ryo once again. Robert returned years later in time to help Ryo save Yuri when she was kidnapped, and is now invited to the King of Fighters tournament.

Introduction

Robert has all the fundamentals of Ryo with some extra jank that only goes in his favor. This makes Robert one of the strongest characters in the game.

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Great normals with lots of range and utility
  • Has basically every tool you could want, including a carbon copy of Zan Retsu Ken
  • Has an infinite with Slide Tackle
  • Has an unblockable which leads into a touch of stun on hit
  • Ryuu-Geki Ken is a pretty bad fireball

10 Mid Yes 7 8 27 -20 -24 -

Bizarrely bad normal. Does the same damage as a lot of lights, has too much pushback to combo into specials even at point-blank, and is awful on hit/block. At the angles where it'd hit as an anti-air, Robert has more rewarding options. Avoid.

Humorously, this move is virtually identical to Ryo's similarly awful cl.HK, except Robert's has six extra recovery frames for some reason. This is perhaps the only advantage Ryo has over Robert.

Great anti-air. Blows through just about every jump-in, long-ranged, chunks the opponent's health on hit, and recovers fast enough to dash up and start pressure.

10 High No 5 13 7 on ground N/A N/A -

Big fast flying kick. Good air-to-air and jump-in.

It's possible to set up an unblockable crossup with this move by hitting it at just the right angle. In addition, since lows in this game are a hitbox check rather than a hard-coded property, if Robert meaties you with jLK as low to the ground as possible, jLK becomes a low. Robert can set both of these situations up off throw, giving Robert a four-way mixup *and* an unblockable off his throw.

Premium quality throw. If you are grabbed by Robert and don't tech, you may go get a snack as Robert performs a potentially-unblockable four-way mixup with jLK into Kyokugenryu Renbu Ken, which is a guaranteed touch of stun after throw, even if you block the last two hits of Renbu Ken. For some reason, it'll just stun you through your guard somehow. Robert's infinite also ensures that, no matter how healthy you were before, he will kill you off this stun. Don't get grabbed!

10 Low Yes 3 8 9 -2 0 -

Costs 0% Spirit. First Slide Tackle must be performed out of a dash.

Bonkers move. On its own, it's a strong special-cancellable low poke off dash. What really pushes this move over the edge, though, is that it can be cancelled into itself by inputting 214B on hit/block. If you keep cancelling Slide Tackle into itself quickly enough, this becomes an infinite on hit and an infinite blockstring on block, giving Robert an immensely threatening ground presence.

In addition, if you do it fast enough, Robert will actually get closer to the opponent with each consecutive Slide Tackle, allowing you to worm your way into throw range on block; since Slide Tackle is 0 on block at worst, this creates powerful tick throws. This can be complemented by intentionally delaying cancels into Slide Tackle to create frametraps.

Pretty whatever fireball. Its frame data is pretty bad, make it not useful in close- or mid-range like shoto fireballs traditionally are. Still comes in handy as a far-range harassment tool, however, especially with Robert's good assortment of anti-airs.

At low Spirit, the fireball will dissipate instantly without travelling anywhere, and will do 8 damage. This is, of course, terrible, and you should not attempt this special at low Spirit.

At low Spirit, this move is replaced with Robert's Uppercut. This Uppercut is still special cancellable, including into itself; however, since Uppercut knocks down, Robert cannot cancel it into itself multiple times in a row for a stun setup like other characters.

Consumes 20% Spirit on use if available, but is unchanged at low Spirit.

Not a very helpful tool. The second hit doesn't combo properly into the third, and the third hit's pushback will sometimes make the fourth whiff. On block or whiff (and functionally on hit as well, since hitting the first half of the move means an aware opponent will block the second half), you'll eat a pretty nasty punish. Gen-Ei Kyaku has more range and damage as a combo ender as well. Robert does have a use for this move in the touch of stun setups detailed in the info box for his throw. Outside of that situation, this move has little to offer outside a combo ender for if you don't have the Spirit to use Gen-Ei Kyaku and really need that extra 20 damage.

Very bad move. High startup, awful on block, and nothing combos into it. No point in using this as a neutral tool, as if you wanted to cover the ground, you have a great dash and Slide Tackle.

At low Spirit, the travel speed during the active frames is cut in half, leading to the move only travelling 3/4 of the screen. In addition, the first hit does 16 damage, and the second hit won't come out at all. This is completely useless.

29 Mid No 17 until landing variable hit/block, 11 whiff N/A N/A -

Costs 25% Spirit.

Useful air option that's decently rewarding and difficult to whiff punish. The delay before Robert's descent means that he can use this to dodge anti-airs and punish, and he can also do it after back and neutral jumps to mix up where he'll land. In addition, since lows in this game are a hitbox check and not a property, if you angle this move so that it hits the opponent's feet, it can hit low! All in all, a handy tool.

At low Spirit, this move is replaced with Robert's jHK. This is hypothetically a bit useful, as it lets you execute jHK quicker than otherwise possible since you don't have to hold the button as long. That's not that big a deal, though.

32 Mid No 1 77 80 hit/block, 0 whiff +38 (KD) -52 -

Costs 40% Spirit.

An amazing move for every aspect of Robert's gameplan. Due to its instant startup, hitgrab property that lets it win trades, and big, disjointed hitbox, this move makes for a powerful and rewarding abare tool. These same properties also make it very useful in combos, with it linking out of lights and comboing naturally out of clHP. Its massive disjoint and high active frames make it a powerful anti-air at a lot of ranges as well, and it'll beat buttons on the ground at some spacings.

What makes this move really stand out is that it's very frustrating to whiff punish. You can't punish with fireballs, since it destroys non-super projectiles. You can't punish with sweep, since it hits crouchers and outranges sweeps. You often can't punish with a jump-in, since this move's generous hitbox means it'll often beat air attacks clean. You can't wait for it to recover, since it has no recovery. As long as they don't block it, you've got an excellent low-risk neutral option. Mind the Spirit cost, however.

At low Spirit, this move is replaced with Robert's 5LK. This doesn't really do anything for him.

54 Mid No 48 Projectile 45 +77 (KD) -21 -

Costs 75% Spirit. Can only be executed with sufficient Spirit.

Too much startup and Spirit cost to be useful in virtually any situation. Not nearly as tall as it looks, either; every character can jump over it just fine. Does a sizable 18 damage on block and travels fast, so it can be useful for chip kills vs a low-health opponent you just knocked down.

80 Unblockable No 49 31 0 +56 (KD) N/A -

Costs 75% Spirit. Can only be executed with sufficient Spirit and at 25% health or below.

Big, damaging unblockable. Not very difficult to set up as a meaty; you can get it off 2HK, Uppercut, Low Attack, Ryuuga, throw, and air resets with anti-air normals cancelled into it. Against opponents without good reversal options, this can provide a devastating checkmate option.
