Advanced Strategy

Advanced crawl techniques

There are a lot of different things you can do with his crawl, but all of these assume that you just launched an opponent with :r::snkc:. These are not combos, they're simply set-ups and whatnot. You can lower the recovery time of the crawl by pressing or holding back, down or up during it. As well, after you've reset them with :snkb: or whatever other attack, 'when' you stop the crawl (by hitting back/down/up) determines whether you'll land in front or behind them. Visually, it's very confusing since you just 'barely' cross under, so this makes him very dangerous mix-up wise.

r::l::r::snkc: > :snkb: > :dp::snkb:
r::l::r::snkc: > :snkb: > :r::l::r::snkc: > :d::snkc:, :l::snka: > Etc.
r::l::r::snkc: > :snkb: > :r::l::r::snkc: > Dash-in throw
r::l::r::snkc: > :snkb: > :r::l::r::snkc: > :u::snkb:/:uf::snkb:/:ub::snkb: (You can get some totally ambiguos cross-ups like this if you learn the specific timings for each)
r::l::r::snkc: > :snkb: > :r::l::r::snkc:> :hcf::snka:


Possibilities are limited only to your imagination really. Probably one of the best multi-purpose moves in the game. Keep in mind that you cancel into it from just about anything, and it makes for great wake-up games.


He's best on power.

Mukuro's damage output is retarded, and his crawl gives him a ton of mobility. Basically, you'll be trying to pressure and disorient your opponent, doing shit loads of damage the whole way through. Utilize the crawl to get near your opponent or just to psyche him out. His air dives can be useful for punishing deflect happy opponents, but I wouldn't rely too much on them. His super can safely chip certain opponents on wake-up as can his :dp::snka:.

Learning to use him at a high level of play involves knowing his crawl move inside out. It can and will go under certain projectiles, and it's a great way to get his command throw (:hcb::snkc:) off.

Jump :snkb: is a great cross-up, jump :snkc: is a great air-air. :snkb: is nice for punishing air recoveries and you can right into your crawl mix-ups from it. His :hcf::snka: is not a throw, it can be blocked. However, it comes out fast as hell and it's got a ton of priority. Use the :snkb: version to punish ground recoveries from far away, the :snka: version closer up.

His projectile is one of the worst in fighting game history though. Avoid it unless you like getting hit with large combos.
