Raiden

MK9-Raiden Face.jpg

Raiden is the God of Thunder and Protector of Earthrealm. Ageless and wise beyond measure, he leads Earthrealm's mortals in the endless battle against the forces of darkness. When Shao Kahn, Emperor of Outworld, threatened to merge his realm with Earthrealm, an overwhelmed Raiden implored the Elder Gods to give Earthrealm a fighting chance. Thus the Mortal Kombat tournament was created. For millenia Shao Kahn has been kept at bay, but nine consecutive losses to Goro have eroded hope that Earthrealm can be saved. Determined to prevent Armageddon, Raiden tirelessly quests to find a champion worthy of Mortal Kombat.

Move Analysis

Basic Attacks

N/A


Command Normals

Heel Smash

Safe overhead launcher if blocked.


Kombo Attacks

Fk.png , Fk.png , Bk.png

Main combo starter. Last hit overheads and launches. No longer frame advantage after patch. He's at -1 now on block.


B.png + Fk.png , Fp.png , Bp.png

Overhead launcher string. No longer frame advantage on block after patch. He's at -1 now.


F.png + Bp.png , Bk.png

This is a great move to poke with because the second hit has great range and will hit the opponent who tries to get close. If connected you can tack on a torpedo. Also a great mix up tool because it has frame advantage on block. Beware some characters with fast uppercut or very fast specials can punish on block.


Special Attacks

Lightning

Slow startup and recovery. Not to be used up-close. Enhance version shoots 2 and the back lightning can start combos when landed. Also a blocked back lightning gives you frame advantage.


Teleport

Raiden's best tool. You almost instantly teleport behind the opponent. Great for punishing projectiles or any whiffed move. Use this for mixups but mostly for mobility.


Torpedo

Super fast attack but extremely punishable if blocked. Also another great get-out-of-the-corner move. Use only from mid to close screen. Enhance version has 1 hit of armor, good for punishing projectiles.


Vicinity Blast

Only used in combos. Outside of combos it's a unreliable anti-air.


Enhanced Special Attacks

Shocker

Another great anti-air because of the one hit armor. When someone jumps at you it will absorb the hit and catch them in the shocker. Free juggle combo.


X-Ray Attack

decent anti-air
