Gameplay Overview

Devastating damage output and big normals are what define Ralf Jones. In terms of movelists, Ralf is one of the most dynamically altered characters in the series; once a charge-based semiclone of Clark, since XIII Ralf has been significantly reworked into a more unique character.

In XV, Ralf is a fully motion-input brawler with an explosive flair that emphasizes his damage potential, which skyrockets as he builds meter. EX Ralf Impact (236BD) crumples the opponent on hit, leaving them wide open enough for Ralf to follow up with a Gatling Attack (236P) combo, or spend even more meter and use EX Ralf Kick (624BD), a multi-hit attack that sends the opponent into a juggle.

With options like Gatling Attack and EX Ralf Kick that move Ralf and the opponent a great distance on hit, Ralf can easily send the opponent into the corner, where they'll be trapped by Ralf's beefy normals. Ralf's st.C, st.D, st.CD, and cr.D have huge range, with the former two easily catching hops. If the opponent tries to get a little too close for comfort, Ralf can use Dynamite Ralf Punch (214P), a standing DP-style move that Ralf can even use to build meter quickly from afar. These options alone give Ralf a very strong neutral game.

Ralf's aerial options might seem lackluster at first glance, but don't be fooled. His j.C is a designated crossup button, and his j.B and j.CD have great range, the former noticeably so for a j.B. Ralf also has an air-only special, Dive Bomber Punch (j.236P) that leads to a hard knockdown, and can also be used to tack on extra damage after using one of his supers, such as Bareback Vulcan Punch (2141236K[K]).

Ralf's main weaknesses stem from his speed. A slugger to a fault, Ralf can struggle to keep up with faster characters and zoners. While his only command normal, Jet Upper (3A) might be very fast for one, it has a very stubby hitbox and Ralf players who aren't careful enough may accidentally push the opponent out of range before they can use it. While Ralf's limited mixup options such as Ralf Kick Feint (624D) or j.X xx 236P can have great reward on hit, their noticeable startup makes them easy to punish, forcing Ralf to rely on universal mechanics and frame traps to open up opponents.

Overall, if you're willing to trade speed for a more destructive offense, then Ralf might be your character. While he can work in any team position, placing him on mid or anchor will allow him to instantly capitalize on meter for massive damage.

Ralf Jones is a straight-shooting, explosive brawler with huge normals, great guard pressure and massive damage output.
Pros Cons
  • Great Frame Traps: Ignoring the more obvious example of 236K, Ralf has the frame data to run a dangerous offense centered around frame trapping the opponent. This, combined with the fact Ralf only needs one good hit confirm to blow up the opponent, makes trying to poke through gaps in Ralf’s pressure an extremely dangerous game. This can even convert an opponent’s crumbling guard meter into a forced mistake once they are forced to take action.
  • Outstanding Normals: On top of having fantastic frame data attached to them, most of them have huge hitboxes. There are very few duds in Ralf’s moveset, allowing you to easily control a large amount of space with the press of a button.
  • Explosive Damage: It takes very little for Ralf to drop a nuke on the opponent’s health bar. Ralf does more damage than most other characters with some of the simplest confirms and combos in the game, making opponents fear even the smallest touch from Ralf. Whether metered or meterless, Ralf can be a threat for his damage potential alone.
  • Big Spender, High Return On Investment: Spending meter on Ralf is rarely ever a wrong decision. Arguably the best shatter strike in the game, high punish potential on a Guard Cancel Roll, great normals for Quick MAX confirms and massive damage on meter dumps all give Ralf plenty of reason to spend for explosive returns when the time is right.
  • Sluggish: Ralf’s overall movement speed is not terrible (in fact, it is fairly standard), but he lacks any non-standard movement options. He must use standard, universal movement options to get around, and he’s not doing it any faster than your average fighter. This can give him trouble when fighting opponents who have the high mobility that he lacks, or when fighting zoners.
  • Minimal Mix-up: Much like his movement, Ralf’s mixup game will be exactly the standard, not including his excellent frametraps. Ralf's only dedicated mix-up tool is a double overhead with any hop normal > j.236P. Aside from this, Ralf is stuck using normal strike/throw offense and frame traps to open up his opponent.

f.A

25 Mid command 5 3 7 +5 +3 - 30 60

A quick jab at shoulder level.

  • A standard hop checker. Does what a jab does and not a whole lot more or less.

far B

f.B

30 Mid super 6 4 10 +1 -1 - 30 60

A quick, downward-angled side kick.

  • Not a low.
  • Has slightly longer range than f.A.
  • Unspectacular range, a lack of cancel options and overall low reward compared to other, similar options at Ralf’s disposal are all factors that add up to a simple conclusion: there is no reason to use this.

far C

far C
f.C
f.C

90 Mid super 9 4 20 -3 -5 - 70 120

Ralf performs a swinging backfist with his outer hand.

  • Uniquely causes a soft knockdown on a counter hit.
  • Great at stopping hops from mid-range
  • The go-to option to fish for a Quick MAX combo
  • Misses against crouching opponents.
  • Despite not being special cancelable, this can be canceled into Vulcan Punch (rapid press A/C 5 times).

far D

far D
f.D
f.D

80 Mid super 11 6 18 -3 -5 - 70 120

Ralf turns around and performs a kick with his back leg.

  • Has slightly less range than f.C but will hit a crouching opponent.
  • Easier to counterpoke against due to its slow startup and extended hurtbox during start-up.
  • Can be canceled into Vulcan Punch (rapidly press A/C 5 times).

Close Standing Normals

Close A

25 Mid command 4 3 8 +4 +2 - 30 60

A high elbow at head height.

  • Much like Far A, this is a standard option for stopping a hop
  • Chain cancellable from 2A or 2B.
  • Combos into 3A

Close B

30 Mid command 5 3 8 +4 +2 - 30 60

  • A solid option for going into 3A due to its low pushback on block

cl.C
cl.C

70 Mid command 5 5 18 -2 -4 - 70 120

A fast, downward fist

  • Launches slightly faster than Close D but rarely ever combos into 3A because of this move’s high pushback.
  • For starting a combo, you are usually better off using Close D

Close D

cl.D
cl.D

80 Mid command 7 6 14 +1 -1 - 70 120

Another knee to the midsection, this time with his outside leg.

  • Slightly slower on startup than Close C, but more rewarding on hit and leads to better blockstrings.
  • The highest damage option for close punishes or jump ins due to its consistent ability to combo into 3A.

Crouch Normals

Crouch A

crouch A
2A
2A

25 Mid command 4 4 6 +5 +3 - 30 60

A quick, crouching jab with incredible frame data.

  • Links into cl.C on hit. If 2A hits meaty, it will link into 2C.
  • +3 on block makes 2A > 2C a very good frame trap due to 2C’s 6-frame startup.
  • Can combo into 3A at short range, converting a light hit into big damage specials that would normally only be accessible from a close heavy starter.

Crouch B

2B
2B

15 Low command 5 4 10 +1 -1 - 15 30
  • Unlike many other cr.Bs, Ralf's can chain into cl.B.
  • Combos into 3A. See the relevant note in the Crouch A entry above.
  • Special cancelable, but 236A is likely your only option to convert a 2B hit into a combo in most scenarios.

Crouch C

2C
2C

70 Mid command 6 5 16 +2 0 - 70 120

God-tier normal that does just about everything you'd want a normal to do. It's fast, command-cancelable, even on block, and has excellent reach. The only thing it doesn't have going for it, arguably, is its pushback; while this makes it safer to throw out in neutral, this also makes it difficult to confirm into his strongest conversions, such as 236BD or 624BD. This limits its punish capabilities slightly, but nonetheless, Ralf's 2C is a low-risk normal with exceptionally high reward. Abuse it.

Crouch D

crouch D
2D
2D

80 Low special 7 5 15 SKD (29: Tech / 56: Non-tech) -1 - 70 120

Ralf quickly sticks his leg out against the ground. Another very good normal.

  • Good range and amazing frame data for a sweep.
  • Cancel options out of this sweep are limited, but being -1 on block with huge pushback is not a bad place to be.

jump jump

90 Mid special 13 8 1 on ground SKD - - 80 140

A slow, horizontal kick with both legs. Like any other j.CD, forcing your opponent to block this will usually lock them in a hefty amount of blockstun, allowing you to start a blockstring or attempt a frame trap.

  • Good horizontal range
  • One of the easier jump CDs to anti-air due to a briefly extended hurtbox during the start-up frames.

65 Mid special 6 5 17 -1 -3 - 80 120

A fast, straight upward punch, used for anti-airing and to convert light attacks into specials with 15-20 frames of startup.

  • Almost nonexistent horizontal range; infamously whiffs after cl.C.

Mediocre move for anti-airing and converting lights, and not much else. It's really hard to use this move for much else because of a lack of horizontal range.

After a short delay, Ralf leaps forward with a spinning dropkick.

    • Has excellent range, reaching a bit further than half-screen distance.
    • If spaced properly, can become safe on block or start a juggle in the corner on hit.
  • D version is a feint with no hitbox and can be cancelled into j.236P in the air. Not very useful either way, and Ralf is in counterhit state the entire time.
  • EX version is much faster and has hitboxes on the way up and can be followed up, usually with 236C. However, it is not an overhead.
  • EX version allows for high damage corner combo extensions with 236BD > 236B > 236C > 63214BD > 236B > 236A.

Ralf rears back and performs a massive straight punch that causes a small explosion.

  • Generally used as a frame-trap tool, but 236B can become combo filler in a few specific situations (such as 236BD > 236B > 236C > 624BD > 236B > 236A in the corner)
  • Plus on block. 236B can combo into 2C on hit (if in range) and 236D can combo into 236A on hit.
  • 236D is slower, but grants more advantage frames on both block and hit.
  • 236D also wallbounces on counterhit. Follow this up with an immediate 236C > 236A.
  • Both light and heavy versions are too slow for anything to combo into it on a grounded opponent without a crumple.
  • EX version starts up much faster (allowing Ralf to reliably combo into it from close heavies or 3A) and crumples on hit. If opponent is already crumpled or airborne, wallbounces instead.
  • EX version is still safe on block, but no longer plus and starts up too fast to be used as a frame trap.
  • Close B/D > 3A > 236K is a solid option for using this move in blockstrings or combos. Hit-confirm the starter and 3A, then go into 236BD if they hit. If not, use the other two versions.

Ralf punches the ground below him, causing a huge explosion on his location. Basically, this is Ralf’s anti-air and/or reversal. All versions destroy projectiles that touch it, and doing so will dramatically shorten its recovery frames.


A version: Nearly worthless. Still destroys projectiles and recovers very fast, which is about the extent of its usefulness. It has no use in combos, fishing for stray hits with this is both extremely difficult and unrewarding, and this move does not work well as an anti-air due to a lack of any sort of invulnerability.


C version: Better, but not amazing. Very slow anti-air, but it is invulnerable to aerial attacks. Technically super cancelable, but nothing will hit after 214C unless this move counterhits. Extremely punishable on whiff or block.


EX version: Grants full invulnerability, deals much more damage and starts up a bit faster. Still not amazing due to its 11F startup, but it is a functional anti-air and can work as a reversal. Still comes with lengthy recovery.

Ralf performs a rapid series of punches at an upward angle. Complete with micro-explosions, of course. As a move, offers next to nothing with an overwhelming amount of drawbacks; this move is very bad and should be avoided in any serious scenario. Most of what it does is better accomplished with other moves, and usually with far less risk attached. Thankfully, the input for it makes this move practically impossible to perform on accident.

  • The exact input for the move is hitting A and/or C 5 times in a 60-frame window. If the fifth input is AC, the EX version is activated. This input can be frustrating to perform on command, limiting this move's application in most situations.
  • Keep pressing punch buttons to extend the duration of the attack. Ralf can also slowly move forward during the non-EX version. The EX version has a fixed duration.
  • Uniquely, can be canceled into from any ground normal, even ones that are not special cancelable. Even the kicks. If performed after Far C, this move will retain the forward movement similar to Quick MAXing after Far C.
  • The normal version only hits once, despite the animation. The EX version hits 4 times and, if very close to an opponent in the corner, combos into 2D. This is very situational, and likely won't come up in a live match.
  • Ralf's only meterless hard knockdown, allowing Ralf to follow it up with j.236A in the corner.
  • Extremely unsafe on block. EX version is +4, but getting every hit to land on a blocking opponent is very unlikely and 236K offers the same plus-on-block utility for free.
  • Deceptively small hitbox makes using this as a wall a less than viable tactic

A backfist followed by a jab (236A) or an uppercut (236C).


A version: Combos from lights. Easily cancels into all of Ralf's supers. Can be made a bit more safe on block with proper spacing. You’re never truly safe, but good spacing will at least minimize the damage you take or make it very difficult to punish.


C version: Combos from 3A and heavies. On a grounded opponent, your followup options are a slightly charged 236236P or sweep. If the opponent is airborne or crumpled, this move launches high enough for 236C > 236A to combo.


EX version: Has projectile invulnerability, making it a decent anti-fireball tool if Ralf is close enough to the opponent. Aside from that, the last hit is a hard knockdown but this move does not work well against an airborne opponent and may drop before the last hit, allowing the opponent to recover from a soft knockdown and immediately punish Ralf.

Against grounded opponents EX version can be followed up by j.236P for extra damage.

Ralf pauses for a moment before launching a dive-punch at a 45-degree angle toward the ground. This attack can only be performed in the air (including after 624D), and can hit an opponent that has been knocked down (referred to as “OTG”)

  • Ralf’s only dedicated mixup tool, allowing him to perform a double overhead by canceling into it from an aerial normal
  • Heavy version pauses for a bit longer, but deals more damage
  • EX version does even more damage and has invulnerability during the pause
  • Aiming for the bottom of an opponent’s hurtbox will make this move safer. Aiming for the top of their hurtbox will make it more unsafe. Either way, this move is very punishable on block.
  • Values in [] indicate damage when the move OTGs. This damage is still subject to combo scaling.
  • Hit this after any super attack (or other hard knockdown, even the move that sucks) for free additional damage. Do not be afraid to use the EX version if it might be the difference between ending the round and the opponent surviving.
  • Briefly halts Ralf's aerial momentum.
  • Cancels from Ralf's j.A, j.C, and j.CD.

Ralf dashes and tackles his opponent to the ground. If not blocked, he rapidly punches them on the ground with both fists and ends with a final exploding blow that leaves the opponent next to Ralf.

  • B/D versions have a slower startup and will whiff when super cancelled from grounded 236C unless very near or in the corner.
  • MAX version has full invincibility up to this move’s active frames and launches faster. Its hitbox is also taller, allowing it to combo from other moves (such as 236C or 236236P) easier.
  • Both versions can always be followed by an OTG j.236P

Go-to combo ender as long as the opponent isn't juggled too high. Combined with a j.236P OTG, you can get a lot of damage off of this super.

Ralf does 8 rapid punches like his vulcan punch, straight forwards instead of upwards. If any of these punches connect, his opponent staggers backwards while Ralf rears back to deliver a single devastating punch, setting the ground ablaze. Ralf then slowly treads forwards with his back turned to the inferno.

  • Does not lose any damage in juggles and climax cancels as only 1 the first 8 punches do any damage, regardless of how many punches actually hit.
  • Has full body invincibility.
  • Has less ability to pick up juggles compared to his other supers and may whiff if used directly in a long corner juggle combo. To avoid this issue, climax cancel into it.
