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.

Pros Cons
  • Decent Pokes
  • Fireball that can hit low
  • Nice command throw
  • Pursuit that hits anywhere on screen
  • Has an infinite (hardest infinite to do in the game)
  • Lost most of his anti-airs from RBS
  • Less range than he should with a staff
  • Limited combos
  • Huge recovery on many of his specials/supers
  • Very few anti-rush options

  • Standard sweep.
  • Knockdown time might not be long enough for a 2C punish, if you're slow the lighting will strike on their invulnerable wakeup and you'll eat a combo.

  • The only anti-air Sokaku has left. It's still very useful and will beat most jump-ins.
  • The hurtboxes on the arm and staff are wider than the hitbox, which can make it very unsafe for hop-ins.
  • You're most likely better off trading with a jump attack in most situations.

  • Punish.
  • Can be done off of a long-range knock down anywhere on the screen, but the timing for some moves is more strict than others (after a throw is a relatively safe option).
  • Use it too late and you'll whiff it on the invulnerable frames of the wakeup animation.
  • If you can't get it off, don't use it.

Notes

Frame Specifics

Notes: He gets a slight advantage on block from canceling heavy attacks into 2BC, which can make for some interesting rushdown once you factor in his 5C and 360 grab.

His 5C'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.
