General Strategy

Moriya is a solid rushdown/mixup character, he has a good pressure with his decent pokes (5B, 5D, 2D, far 5B/5D), his rekkas and some tricks with his C DPs and Teleports.

  • He can start the combos from a low (cr. B) So, usually, combos with Moriya are started off with cr.bx2 to rekkas.

OTGs: Close 5B and 3C

  • 3C strikes the ground and can be done two times. It is done after a throw in the corner. Out of the corner use st.b as his OTG.

Some Moriya stuff:

  • After a knock down, Moriya can do DP + C for a unexpected crossup.
  • After 2C as AA, juggle with A version Rekkas. The last hit (Overhead) will connect. Its the best meterless option for a AA Combo. With meter, you can use 2C x 214214 A/B. Maybe you can use the ranbu super, i don't' know, i hate NGBC training mode.
  • The Last Blade characters have parries. Learn how to use this. Low Parry is (4B+D) and High Parry is (6B+D)


Usually, Moriya combos starts with the same way.
