Introduction

Jin Saotome and his giant robot Blodia are from the giant robot fighting game Cyberbots. In the Marvel vs. Capcom games, Jin fights on foot, utilizing fiery punches and kicks, some disturbing clothes-exploding action, and several supers that call in Blodia from the sidelines.

Moves List

Normal Moves

Standing

LP: Weak nothing punch.

MP: Jin's launcher, decent damage, short range.

FP: A strong flaming punch with really good range.

LK: A quick kick that does okay damage and moves Jin slightly forward.

MK: A spinning kick that does two hits and knocks your opponent away.

FK: Jin jumps forward and does a drill kick. It can hit from all the way across the screen, and knocks the opponent down.

Crouching

LP: Stronger than a standing jab.

MP: Jin smashes downwards with a flaming fist. Quick and the damage is about right.

FP: Decent damage and speed, knocks the opponent over and will push you back a ways.

LK: Has some nice range for a short, and will knock you back a bit.

MK: Jin kicks upwards. If you do this after a crouching short you'll be knocked back too far for it to connect, unless you're fighting some huge guys or your opponent's moving forward or something.

FK: Ground drill kick. Doesn't have the range of the standing roundhouse, but comes out faster and does the same damage.

Jumping

LP: Weak as ever.

MP: A regular forward flaming punch. Seems like it'd be good in a combo.

FP: A downwards smash. Pretty good for catching someone in the air, I think.

LK: I think Jin's scream is funny. Not much else to say about this one.

MK: Jin kicks upwards. The damage on this move doesn't seem quite up to par.

FK: A jumping spinning kick that hits twice. Does a little bit more than the standing forward.

d+FK: A Dhalsim-style, downwards drill kick. This one can hit three times and makes a good way to top off an air combo.

Special Properties (glossary)
Saotome Typhoon
Charge B.png , F.png + P.png
Jin spins like a screen-wide cyclone forwards. If it's blocked you're left wide open for a counter.
Saotome Dynamite
Charge D.png , U.png + P.png
Jin's clothes explode off his body and hit everything nearby. All right as a move, but much better as an assist.
Saotome Crush
Hcb.png + K.png
Jin does a short dash forward and grabs. If he connects and isn't blocked, he'll drag his opponent all across the sides of the screen and deposit him back in the corner for minor-ish damage.

Super Moves

Blodia Punch
Qcf.png + Lp.png + Hp.png
Jin punches forward, then Blodia's fist comes flying out of the side of the screen. This does more damage the closer your opponent is to your corner, and can also put some hurt on his assists.
Blodia Vulcan
Qcb.png + Lp.png + Hp.png
Jin snaps his fingers, calling in a machine-gun assault from Blodia. If this hits, it'll cut to a view inside the cockpit, and if it misses or is blocked, Jin will jump back out and punch the ground. Not mashable. Note that there's a gap halfway into it: if they stop blocking they'll get hit.
Saotome Cyclone
Qcf.png + Lk.png + Hk.png
A stationary, short-ranged, high-reaching version of the Typhoon special. Doesn't seem to actually do any damage until your opponent hits the ground... I wouldn't recommend cancelling this into anything.

The Basics

Jin is a slow character, but he has a lot of reach, and a decent arial command normal (j. 2hp). This move has three hits, and is one of his most important moves. If it is done too high or at a bad angle, if it hits you won't be able to combo off of it, and it will leave you somewhat vunerable. With correct spacing, or simply a quick sj 2hp, this can be combo'd into lp then either launcher XX typhoon, sweep xx blodia punch, or sweep xx dynamite.

Jin's sweep/slide is really long and can catch a lot of people off guard. It is cancellable into dynamite(36 dmg) or blodia punch(damage varies, usually high 50s). You can use it simply to move closer while crouching against a lot of characters, but if you do it too frequently, most characters can capitalize easily off it with things like AHVB, rocket punch, or hailstorm.

Jin's expansion assist is probably his best one. A player can pick up a player from the ground after it, like psylocke's assist, which is great for a sentinel in melee range (c.lk xx rocket punch xx deploy), or a sentinel that is far away can simply hp xx rocket punch xx deploy while jin is picking him up. Another use is while flying, sentinel can call the assist, lk, hk, unfly, then launcher or c.lk xx rocket punch xx deploy. Also, this assist can be used to start the ROM infinite, get storm's launcher off, or iron man's infinite (usually, the infinite has to start with lk mk 8hp, then the normal lp mp mk 8hp starts working). Also, this assist is extremely useful in block strings due to it's four hit potential.

Jin works well with storm, as her lightning attack xx lightning storm combo goes extremely well into saotome cyclone (or blodia vulcan if for some reason the opponent is too far away for cyclone), usually for a kill.
