Jump to navigation Jump to search

Introduction

You can access Original Kaede by highlighting Kaede at the character select screen, and pressing C 9 times, B once, and C 4 more times. If you do this right, you'll hear his voice, and then you can select him with A or D.

Original Kaede or Unawakened Kaede is generally considered an inferior character compared to his awakened counterpart. This is mainly due to his below-average combo damage output and the loss of advantages he gains in his awakened form (such as air fireball and long-range pokes DM). The only noticeable difference between him and his counterpart is that he possesses a better fireball and has access to air chains in any mode thanks to a glitch which helps him deal decent damage from an instant overhead. However, it's worth noting that some rule sets for this game entirely ban this glitch due to its potential for infinite combos, although 1 or 2 reps are usually allowed.


Strengths Weaknesses
  • High meterless damage when mastered
  • Rewarding command grab
  • Strong pokes in neutral
  • Forces trades easily
  • Slightly better fireball than his Awakened counterpart
  • Builds meter really fast
  • Access to a very rewarding instant overhead (IOH) in the form of jC
  • High stun building from loops
  • Poor mix
  • Long range pokes have extended hurtbox extensions
  • Most buttons that were changed are much worse than they were in Awakened
  • All buttons that are identical to Awakened have decreased damage, making trades much more disadvantageous
  • Poor oki
  • High execution barrier for his highest damaging combos, otherwise damage is below average
  • High meter gain with rarely any instance of actually spending it
  • Linear gameplan
  • Situationally having worse matchups than Awakened
Strengths Weaknesses
  • 5A>A is one of the best empty cancels in the game
  • Simple yet effective hit confirms
  • Access to chaining multiple air chains
  • Very low damage off individual hits, and combos aren't much better
  • Pokes have significant hurtbox extensions, with the above issue, trades are rarely ever in your favor damage wise
  • Struggles to confirm into super and does not have any fandango confirms
  • Add on the cons from listed in power
Strengths Weaknesses
  • Same strengths as speed, with slightly higher potential damage from command grab and loops
  • Same weaknesses as speed
  • Massive defense penalty makes trades even worse

A very fast but decently long range poke with good horizontal priority. Easily O.Kaede's best grounded poke due to being incredibly noncommital and stuffing most approach attempts. Notably it can also combo into most specials depending on your range, with DP in particular being very consistent at even longer ranges. Can serve as an anti-air if spaced against jump ins with weak air-to-ground priority.

Combo starter with a pretty decent hitbox. Relegated to being combo/punish fodder since it's not particularly fast and it's overshadowed by 5A as a poke. Links into 6C, even though it's a 1 frame link it's the key to your maximum damage conversions.

Huge range for a 6B, being comparable to Kagami and Moriya's 6B. Doesn't lead to anything on hit, but if spaced right it's difficult to punish on block. Solid damage on Power, and serves as a chain ender in Speed.

A wallbounce with decent range. Can be canceled in power for super confirms, or guarantee an OTG/oki in any mode. Difficult for some characters to punish on block if spaced and canceled, however it can always be punished if what you do (or don't do) after the hit is read.

An unblockable which can be held down to delay. Due to significant startup and being possible to deflect, it's typically rather useless. In theory you can bait deflects fairly easily with it, but 41236C is just generally better at doing that.

An overhead which can lead to combo. Reactable, and O.Kaede's lows are already fairly underwhelming, so it's not often very useful during pressure situations. Also works as an anti-air.

Identical to AKaede's jA, so it's a great button and jump in. Long horizontal range, can cross up and leaves him in a favourable position on hit. But it is still overshadowed by jC by virtue of overhead loops. Can be comboed from jC via inputting j236A after jC, but you'll prefer j236B for damage instead. Due to a coding error, j236A can be chained multiple times in the air in Speed/EX until OKaede touches the floor.

Relatively slow jump in, lasts for quite long and can force trades. But it's main tool is to be canceled into jC via j236B, which leads to his signature overhead loops for high damage. Due to a coding error, j236B can be chained multiple times in the air in Speed/EX until OKaede touches the floor

This is the reason you pick O.Kaede. Not only is this an IOH, but thanks to a coding error, Kaede has access to air chains if he does a jumping attack, then a 236 motion, then either A or B (as long as the jumping button and the button to use the motion aren't the same). This means O.Kaede can cancel his instant overhead j.C into j.236B (j.B) for combos. This makes his punishes, even for attacks that are only slightly minus on block, really good. Without this, it's fair to call him a worse Kaede, so if you want to play him, learning how to do the loop consistently is essential.

A single hit projectile unlike Awakened Kaede version. It's still easily hopped over with good reaction, and has fairly long recovery. Useful for frame traps.

  • Kaede rolls forward
  • possibly ends up on opposite site of opponent, but may leave him vulnerable

P:31 S:24 1 N/A - - -6 - N/A - -

A simple air-throw. Doesn't lead to much advantage on hit, and has fairly poor anti-air priority. Its primary use is as a combo tool, due to being possible to "rejump" into from certain setups. Is part of Kaede's optimal meterless command grab confirms in Power Mode, and isn't very useful in Speed/EX since he has better meterless options in those modes. It is -6 when you use it so you can be punished depending on the opponent.

  • Kaede catches opponent in air and slams them into the ground.

P:12 S:9 1 N/A 34 - Launch - N/A - -

A very fast with a little rewarding command grab. Relatively fast animation on whiff, but still punishable on reaction and has the same range as a regular throw. A cornerstone of Kaede's mixup game in all modes, due to his lackluster high/low opportunities. Just like Awakened Kaede, it is untechable upon launch and only cause soft knockdown if you don't follow-up. If you input it as 412364C you will throw the opponent in the opposite direction you were facing when you started the motion.

  • Can't juggle into SDM because of its laggy startups.
  • Can't juggle into Super Speed Combo from midscreen, but you can connect it from the corner.
  • Kaede does a small assault, allows for further juggling after finishes.

A pilar of lightning that moves horizontally. Very good as an anti air, usually used to close out a round with a good read. It is very much unsafe on block, especially when done at close range so you shouldn't be using this move like a spacing tool or neutral check while in Desperation. Holding the move doesn't increase its damage.

  • Kaede strikes the ground creating a single vertical forward-moving electrical strike.
  • Chargeable.

Pretty much an enhanced version of 21416AB, but you cannot combo this from 41236C command grab. If not all hits connect, it does less damage than the regular DM, making it a very inconsistent tool in general. Use it for max damage conversions off of 6C. Holding the move doesn't increase its damage.

  • Similar to Awakened KaedeLively Dragon Pounce, but only in three strikes.
  • Chargeable.
