Viewtiful Joe

Vjoeface.jpg

In a nutshell

Joe is a tiny little pest that frustrates his opponents with this size. He does lack range, but getting in is never a problem for Joe. His ability to put his opponents into a slow motion state is one of the game's most powerful tools, and building a strategy around this is the key to success with Viewtiful Joe.

Strategy

Tips and Tricks

  • Joe becomes a nightmare when paired with a low hitting OTG assist. Being able to airdash in and hit 3 or 4 times before landing while a low assist is creating an unblockable for you will really scare opponents.
  • While doing a short combo into God Hand is available, having an OTG assist allows you to do a much longer, much more damaging combo, and then OTG into God Hand to inflict the slowdown status.
  • Joe's overhead can combo into launcher or Groovy Uppercut, letting him start nasty combos from it. Characters in slow motion will have a very hard time blocking this.
