Shuma Gorath

Shumagorathface.jpg

In a nutshell
Shuma Gorath has many qualities that may make him appear to be a very bizarre character. For one, he's a walking eyeball with tentacles. Secondly, he possesses two charge motions for special moves, which may seem like it would limit his mobility. However, in reality, Shuma Gorath is a fairly straight-forward character with very accessible combos, including some nice jump loops off of his jump cancelable crouching H.png . Also, thanks to his Mystic Ray, he can be a very effective zoning character, as there is technically no way, outside of teleports and invincibility, to avoid the H.png version of the move. Also, Shuma's Chaos Dimension may be one of the most powerful Level 3's in the game, as it is completely unblockable. This opens up a ton of opportunities to land this in pressure and in combos.

Strategy

Tips and Tricks

  • Learn the timing of when the eyeballs from the Mystic Stare explode. You can produce lots of combos that are perfectly times to take advantage of the explosions to extend your combos, as you can actually use the Mystic Stare in a combo and continue comboing after they connect.
  • The Chaos Dimension may be considered the most broken Level 3 Hyper Combo when all is said and done. Understand that the follow-up attack is not a throw. I repeat, it is NOT a throw. It is a bonafide unblockable attack. This means that you can catch people with the move while in a combo, which they are trying to block, and during blockstun!!. So if you jump at the opponent and do a jumping M.png and they block it, you can cancel that into the H.png and grab them right out of block stun.
  • Because the follow up H.png is considered a Hyper Combo, you can even use it to cancel Special Moves like Mystic Stare to produce delay-less Mystic Stares. And even if the opponent blocks all the Mystic Stares, you can still grab them.
  • To produce a nearly 100% unescapable Chaos Dimension, have the opponent block an Assist so they cannot push you away with Advancing Guard. Go right up next to them, activate Chaos Dimension. As soon as they block the initial hit, X-Factor Cancel that initial hit and just mash on H.png . You will grab them out of block stun and not even Advancing Guard can escape this trick. The only way to escape this is via Crossover Counter. But they have to be ready for it and also need at least one level of Hyper Meter.
