Normal Moves

Format for Normals section. Be sure to add bullet points for multiple moves having a property (e.g. j. B/D cross-up; st/cr. A/B/C/D are whiff/cancelable). REMOVE AFTER WRITING IN


  • cl. A: ok fast feeler button with ok frame advantage. cancelable.
  • cl. B: another feeler low button. used more than A since it is a low. cancelable.
  • cl. C: very fast combo starter and nice frame trap. cancelable.
  • cl. D: slower than cl.C but has long reaching second hitbox. only first hit is cancelable.


  • st. A: very long anti hop check.
  • st. B: a lower version of st.A. still does ok hop check. but this one is more suitable for anti run.
  • st. C: slow punch, cancelable but too slow to utilize it.
  • st. D: a big long poke. but its large recovery making it quite risky. dont spam it.


  • cr. A: quite typical crouching jab with ok range and plus on block. cancelable.
  • cr. B: pretty long low. cancelable into itself or other light buttons such as cr.A. your main low confirm.
  • cr. C: fast crouched uppercut. is cancelable/whiff cancelable on first part.
  • cr. D: uncancelable sweep. quite long and fast.


  • j. A: somewhat similar to kusanagi knee, their j.B, but not as deep and no cross up. still an ok fast jump in.
  • j. B: a very long horizontal ranged kick. nice air spacing tool.
  • j. C: opposite of j.B, great vertical ranged punch. a great air control move.
  • j. D: very deep downward kick. nice close ranged jump in. but the range is very short.


  • st. CD: generic st.CD. not so great.
  • j. CD: a great jump in, air to air with fast start up and good priority.

Sadomazo: hcf + B/D

Double Return: qcf + A/C

  • A version will break projectiles, C version he will absorb the energy of the the projectile and it gets stored. Then when the input is repeated (qcf + C) he will fire a projectile back.

Judgement Dagger: dp + A/C

  • If you whiff the first slash he does not go for the second.

Fight of Tempering: dp + B

Flying Dragon Kick: down, down + B (while opponent is knocked down on the ground)

  • This is a key followup after doing Fight of Tempering. Note the recovery on this move is quite long because he laughs for a moment once he finishes stomping the grounded opponent. But the entire animation is fully invincible until it ends, so it's actually Yamazaki who can react to their next move with DMs or regular throw etc.
