OverviewStrategyDataCombosReplaysMatchups


Introduction

Iori is a highly versatile character that can do just about anything, but leans towards rushdown and mixups due to his great access to hard knockdowns. At further ranges, he has a fireball and a good poke as his main tools, but Iori really starts to shine when he lands a hit into his hard knockdown rekka. He has plenty of mixup options, like a good crossup, a command grab he can combo out of, good low confirms, and an overhead. Most of these options will allow him to combo into rekka again and repeat the situation. On defense, he has access to a great DP for reversals and anti-airs, and a good DM that can low-profile and anti-air well. Iori's main weakness is that he lacks certain kinds of ground moves, so his grounded poking game can feel a bit lacking. Notably, his sweep, while a great whiff punisher, is unsafe on block, and his standing B isn't the long and fast mid poke that some other characters have.

Movelist


Changes from Previous Versions

98 to 98UM

Normals:

  • 2A hurtbox is taller
  • 2B hurtbox is taller, so some projectiles can no longer be low-profiled

Specials:

  • 623C now hits consistently, even against airborne opponents
  • The time that the hurtbox for 214P 214P becomes lower is reduced by 3 frames
  • 632146P 632146P startup is 3 frames faster, but invincibility frames are reduced

Supers:

  • 2363214P 2363214P is no longer a hard knockdown
  • 2141236P 2141236P changed: now deals damage at once when it hits, but none when the opponent is stunned; also reduced stunned time

98UM to 98UMFE

  • Extra mode step dash distance moved is longer

Specials:

  • 632146P 632146P has more recovery after the throw, so it's harder to connect attacks afterwards

  • Causes hard knockdown and gives Iori plenty of time to set up whatever offense he wants afterwards.
  • All 3 hits of both the A and C Rekka are Negative and unsafe on block point-blank. At further ranges, they are still unsafe, but the opponent will need a fairly fast long-range move to punish.
  • The A Rekkas knock the enemy back a bit on hit.
  • The full C rekkas make them land right next to Iori with a hard knockdown, setting up a few wakeup options.

  • B version can be cancelled into his qcb+P on contact whereas D version is cancellable into any special move.
  • Unsafe on block, and since his qcb+P is also not safe on block there's no real way to reduce risk. However dp+D, qcf+A 623D, 236A is a fairly safe option.
  • Can go over some lows.
  • Has a little bit of startup invincibility.
  • Main use is for baiting guard cancel CD. Just cancel your normal into dp+D and go into qcf+A 623D and go into 236A if there is no Guard Cancel. If there is a Guard Cancel you can react and either cancel into Maiden Masher or Rekkas.
