Gameplay Overview

Health: 950

Normals

Standing

Far A
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
25 30 5 4 10 2 0 Hitbox -

Quick jab with a playing card. Whiffs on crouching opponents, Decent horizontal range and speed to stop incoming hops. In 3.1, recovery is much quicker (4f), and is your go-to hop check.


Far B
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
30 30 7 3 15 -3 -5 Hitbox -

This high kick can stop random forward jumps directly in front of Oswald. Whiffs on crouching opponents. Hitbox is deceptively high, so hops are effective against this move, although it is a potent tool against jumps.


Far C
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
70 70 8 6 21 -6 -8 Hitbox -

A fierce card slash. Good amount of push-back if blocked. Almost interchangeable with st. D, MAX mode starter if you aren’t in range for close C.


Far D
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
80 70 13 3 24 -6 -8 Hitbox -

More horizontal and vertical range than st. C, but a bit less start-up. More recovery though.


Close

Close A
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
25 30 4 3 12 0 -2 Hitbox -

A quick close card slash that can be chained into cr. A, cl. B, cr. B. Special cancel-able as well. Also a nice move to stop hops, but not as effective as far A.


Close B
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
30 30 6 5 6 4 2 Hitbox -

Looks like st. B but uses his knee instead. Plus 2F on block. Special cancel-able.


Close C
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
70 70 9 5 19 -3 -5 Hitbox -

Looks like Mature’s and Iori’s close C. You will be using this as a confirm in his heavy standing combos, usually into J (or 3A, usure of notation we want here) You can also use this to stop opponents from re-hopping in from of your face, or trying to jump over you if they want to escape out of the corner.


Close D
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
80 70 5 4 18 -1 -3 Hitbox -

Faster start-up than cl.C, and less negative frames on block but has less multi-purpose use as cl. C. Not as useful due to less anti-air properties, but does 10 more damage, so if you’re 9000% sure a jumpin will connect, use this instead of cl.C.


Crouching

Crouching A
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
25 30 7 4 8 3 1 Hitbox -

A chain-able long range crouching jab. About as long as his far A, this will be part of your light confirms, usually into 3A.


Crouch B
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
30 30 5 3 8 4 2 Hitbox -

Decent range for a crouching light kick. Can chain into cr.A. Your main low starter, typically into cr.A, although it links into itself. You can’t cancel this directly into 3A, so cr.A cr.B is better overall.


Crouch C
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
70 70 13 6 22 -7 -9 Hitbox -

Oswald slashes the opponent’s shins. Decent horizontal range. Doesn’t hit low. Special and super cancel-able. Mostly obsoleted by cr.D due to its range, but safer on whiff although it’s a mid.


Crouch D
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
40 + 40 40 + 30 9 4(7)4 33 SKD (2nd Hit Only) -18 Hitbox -

Hits low twice. The first hit doesn’t knock down, while the second hit causes a soft knockdown. Great horizontal vertical range and can be canceled into his df+A command normal. -18F on block. A wonderful MAX starter on the first hit (even when blocked), a very long sweep if you let it finish. However, good spacing is needed as on whiff this move is extremely punishable.


Jumping

Jump A
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
45 30 7 8 (Landing)+1 - - Hitbox -

A short-ranged diagonal downward card slash. Good for air-to-ground approaches at hop height, also great for tick throwing people.


Hop A
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
40 30 7 6 (Landing)+1 - - Hitbox -

A short-ranged diagonal downward card slash. Good for air-to-ground approaches at hop height, also great for tick throwing people.


Jump B
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
45 30 5 11 (Landing)+1 - - Hitbox -

A high aiming kick that is best for ground-to-air defensive situations.


Hop B
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
40 30 5 9 (Landing)+1 - - Hitbox -

A high aiming kick that is best for ground-to-air defensive situations.


Jump C
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
70 70 12 6 (Landing)+1 - - Hitbox -

A super deep cross-up slash, buffed in 3.10 to serve as a good air-to-ground with its increased horizontal range. This button is oswald’s main jump-in when the opponent’s on defense, although j.A and j.CD have their merits too.


Hop C
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
70 70 12 6 (Landing)+1 - - Hitbox -

A super deep cross-up slash, buffed in 3.10 to serve as a good air-to-ground with its increased horizontal range. This button is oswald’s main jump-in when the opponent’s on defense, although j.A and j.CD have their merits too.


Jump D
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
70 70 11 4 (Landing)+1 - - Hitbox -

Good horizontal range to use as an air-to-air attack. Although j.CD gets the CH juggle properties, jump back j.D is good for when you need to challenge a jump-in but you either don’t trust K or they’re too close for 3A to work.


Hop D
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
70 70 11 3 (Landing)+1 - - Hitbox -

Good horizontal range to use as an air-to-air attack. Although j.CD gets the CH juggle properties, jump back j.D is good for when you need to challenge a jump-in but you either don’t trust K or they’re too close for 3A to work.


Blowback

Standing CD
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
75 100 13 8 26 HKD (Gnd)/ SKD (Air) -11 Hitbox Low: 5 to 30 (26 Frames)

Whiff cancel-able and crushes low and evades ground skimming projectiles. Hits behind him.


Jump CD
Damage Stun Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv Hitbox Invincibility
90 80 14 7 (Landing)+1 SKD - Hitbox -

Same angle as j.A but longer and deeper horizontal and vertical range. Best used to build up guard gauge/blockstun as a hop normal, particularly to put you in range for a hop C left/right during a blockstring.


Hop CD

80 80 14 5 (Landing)+1 SKD - Hitbox -

Same angle as j.A but longer and deeper horizontal and vertical range. Best used to build up guard gauge/blockstun as a hop normal, particularly to put you in range for a hop C left/right during a blockstring.
