EX King

  • Surprise Rose is either punishable by command grabbing EX King using 632146P after the second hit, using 236236K after the first hit, or, near the corner, performing a rising j.CD and performing the infinite.

Orochi Shermie

  • O. Shermie's best zoning tools, her electric kisses, have heavy amounts of startup - 236236C is a great punish on reaction. You can also try using 214P to tag her before it comes out, which can also confirm into the infinite based on positioning.
  • Since O. Shermie doesn't do too well against grappler-style pressure and Vice's anti-zoning tools, using your meter on supers or Quick MAX on block to remain safe is a very valid option - being able to kill O. Shermie in one touch isn't very important.
