Gameplay Overview

Gameplay Notes

He used to sit comfortably in the top-tier, and was probably his strongest in RBS, however he lost a lot of what made him strong in those games. He went from having a barrel-full of anti-airs to one (arguably two) and it's a normal. He has decent pokes, a fireball that can hit low, a nice command throw, a pursuit that hits anywhere on the screen, and an infinite (far and away the hardest in the game). He has less range than you think he would with a staff, limited combos, huge recovery of many of his specials / supers, and very few options to stop someone who's rushing.

d+B+C: 18f

Notes: He gets a slight advantage on block from canceling heavy attacks into d+B+C, which can make for some interesting rushdown once you factor in his far C and 360 grab.

His far C's animation is cut short if it hits or is blocked. When whiffed, its recovery is actually quite bad - if the opponent hops over it, expect to eat a nice combo.
