Overview

Hibiki in general is the type of character who uses her long reaching normals to control space, if you've played Samurai Shodown she is basically a female Ukyo Tachibana, and her B buttons are also great in this game. No matter the mode you choose. She's very strong in both Power and Speed/EX modes, Power being more focused on space control, neutral and punishes, while Speed is more focused on rushdown and pressure.

Combos

Hibiki is a very fun character, during matches you won't be doing much more than your BnBs, but it's possible to make her a powerhouse. One of her best characteristics, is that both her Power and Speed damage outputs are similar, so you can freely choose the one who best suits our playstyle. NOTE: Before every combo, except dp+C and dash+A/B starters, you can add use a jX starter.

Any Mode

dp+C qcf+A/B

Only works near corner. qcf+A version must be exactly in the corner.

Dash+A/B qcb+db+f+AB
(jX) B qcb+db+f+AB

Your easiest confirms into DM, you'll probably use this a lot.

(jX) B dp+B qcf+A/B

Doesn't work at certain ranges. qcf+A only works in the corner, qcf+B only near corner and other specific situations

(jX) B dp+B qcb+db+f+AB

Your most optimal DM confirm for power mode, it's basically the same for speed/EX.

Dash A/B f+hcf+B
jB f+hcf+B

Power Mode

f+C dp+C df+B

Only works near corner and on the corner

f+C qcb+db+f+AB
f+C dp+B
f+C B dp+B db+B

Speed and EX Mode

Bread and Butter combos

(jX) A B C dash df+B

This is a simple combo every character can do, use if you're a beginner. Get used to the timing of the dash, it's going to be very useful.

Dash+A/B d+B BC qcf+A/B

This combo is situational, if dash+A/B hits from max distance, d+B won't hit neither BC. Only qcf+A/B (A has easier timing and deals more damage)

(jX) b+A A A/d+A B BC qcf+A/B

Easiest BnB she has in these modes

(jX) b+A A A/d+A d+B BC qcf+A/B

Optimized version of the above combo, timing is slightly harder

(jX) b+A A A/d+A d+B/B qcb+db+f+AB

Same as the above, but for super. d+B deals more damage but it's slightly harder to confirm.

Speed Mode Only

Dash+A/B d+B dp+B qcf+B
(jX) b+A A d+A/A d+B dp+B qcf+B

EX Mode Only

(jX) b+A A d+A d+B dp+B qcb+db+f+AB
(jX) b+A A d+A d+B f+hcf+B

Both are super confirms, the first for your DM and the second for your SDM

Super Speed Combos

A + B + C + A + B + C + A + B + qcf+C
A + B + C + A + B + C + C + B + A + qcf+A
A + B + C + d+C + A + d+C + f+BC
A + B + C + d+C + A + f+BC + A + qcf+B

Strategy

Hibiki's best way of dealing damage is by zoning out her opponents, but in Speed and EX modes she works aggressively as well. If you're going to play with her in power, learn how to use your B normals, especially f+B and B. And your A normals, for pokes and confirms. B is going to be your best friend, it's a 3f anti-air (Takes 9f to get to the ground) and cancels into everything, it's simply good. Your bnb in power are going to be these two:

(jX) B qcf+A/B
(jX) b+A b+A A qcf+A/B

The difference from one another is that the second option deals a little more damage. The optimized version is, however

(jX) B dp+B (changes sides) dash df+B

If you're going to play in speed, they won't be as necessary as your main focus of damage will be your combos with A starters, for example,

b+A AA/{A d+A} B qcf+A/B
b+A AA/{A d+A} d+B BC qcf+A/B 

Which is your bnb in that mode.
