The King of Fighters 2002 UM/Shermie

From Dream Cancel Wiki






  • st. A is a cancel-able slap that covers a distance in front of her face. Good for stopping incoming hops. Whiffs on crouching opponents except for Goro, Maxima and Chang. Whiffs up-close on standing characters such as Chin, Hinako, & Choi. Can be chained into cr. A, st. B, and cr. B.
  • st. B is a 2-hit special and super cancel-able side kick. Both hits are cancel-able. Moves Shermie forward a bit.
  • st. C is a double palm attack that moves Shermie forward. Not cancel-able.
  • st. D is roundhouse kick can be used to pre-emptively stop incoming hops but it is not cancel-able. It can also whiff on many characters while crouching.


  • cl. C is special and super cancel-able, and can be cancel-ed into her command normals (f+A, f+B).


  • cr. A is a crouching slap that can be chained into st.A, st.B, cr. B and her command normals
  • cr. B: Shermie lays on the ground on her side to kick the opponent near their ankles. She can duck & evade many mid-air projectiles except very low fireball's such as Bao's light punch Psycho Ball (qcb+A) and ground skimming fireballs such as Iori's or Kusanagi's qcf+A. This kick also moves Shermie forward slightly
  • cr. C: This cancel-able uppercut looks like Shermie is doing a volleyball bump (or pass). She moves backward slightly. Can be used as a grounded anti-air, and has a decent amount of attack range in front of her.
  • cr. D is a sweep that is not cancel-able. Can evade mid-air projectiles but not as reliably as cr. B.


  • jumping B/C/D can all cross-up the opponent
  • j. C can be used as a jump-in attack to start combos
  • Neutral jump D is a horizontal drop kick that is good for stopping incoming jumps or super jumps
  • j. D has good horizontal range and can be used as a jump-in attack


  • Stand CD: Shermie aims a kick at the opponent's head. Moves Shermie forward a bit and is whiff cancel-able
  • j.CD can be use similar to her neutral jump D as an air-to-air. Can be low profiled by the opponent's crouching light kick or sweep if improperly timed.
