Old Blanka's portrait in Super Turbo

Introduction

Blanka had arguably received a too strong nerf in Super Street Fighter II (SSF2). His appearance in Street Fighter II' Turbo (Japan)/Hyper Fighting (World/US, HF for short) was glorious: his attacks had great priority, specially his aerial kicks, and his added special attack, the Vertical Roll, greatly improved his combo potential and wake-up pressure. In SSF2, his crouching Roundhouse kick and Fierce punch were made slower, the aerial kicks' priority were greatly reduced and his Vertical Roll active hitboxes when he descends were completely absent. His electricity attack, whose official name is Electric Thunder, also had its attack boxes reduced for the Strong and Fierce versions. In return, he gained a backstep rolling attack that happens to be the absolute worst special move in the game.

Picking Old Blanka

To select O.Blanka, choose Blanka and then press → ← ← ← Jab/Fierce, pressing Short simultaneously with the punch button for the alternate color.

New & Old Versions Comparison

Here is the list of differences:

  • Obvious stuff: O.Blanka can not tech throws, does not have the hops, slide and Super;
  • O.Blanka has some differences in some of his normals:
    • Close Standing Jab can not be special canceled;
    • Far Standing Jab can not be special canceled;
    • Crouching Short can not be special canceled;
    • Crouching Forward can not be special canceled;
    • Diagonal Jumping Short has outstanding air to ground priority (can beat N.Shoto Shoryukens with the right timing) but does not has crossup properties (all in all a huge loss);
    • Diagonal Jumping Roundhouse hits slightly higher and can connect back to his thighs, but has less range and priority at his feet (which makes it worse overall);
  • O.Blanka's electric attacks have no recovery while for N.Blanka they have a recovery animation, the only significant nerf that N.Blanka received;
  • O.Blanka's Both Horizontal and Vertical Beast Rolls have a 50% of chance of being unblockable if it hits on the first frame;
  • O.Blanka's Vertical Beast Rolls have a different arc and recovery animation: it tends to go more vertically and then pull horizontally back, whereas N.Blanka's travels farther horizontally and then drops straight down. It may be more safe but it is worse as a projectile avoiding tool, though on rare occasions it's useful to bait some attacks;

O.Blanka is a waste of time, really; he losses so much for a different vertical roll, a better lightning attack and a dj.Short that may have its uses but without having a cross-up a lot of match-ups which are already hard become almost impossible.

Blanka slaps his opponent. This is not a good move, favor cl.Strong instead. It is okay for ticking though. Does not has special cancel properties like N.Blanka's version, but for O.Blanka it would not made too much of a difference since he can not Hop.

This is one of Blanka's most important attacks. Since Blanka has no overhead, cross-ups or reliable ways to deliver chip damage, he needs his long range bite hold to crack the enemy's defense. The first bite deals 26 points of damage (28 if behind in rounds) and the other ones do 4 points each.

O.Blanka can use this as a semi unblockable similar to old shoto air tatsu. Make sure it hits on the first active frame, and on the correct side, there is a 50/50 chance their block will fail. Though this doesn't mean a whole lot since many characters can punish you afterwards.

Old Blanka can use this to try a semi unblockable in the same fashion as horizontal ball. Suffers from the same issue as 99 times out of 100 they can punish you after it hits/gets blocked.

This is a very good anti-air and anti-cross-up move. The first damage value applies for the rolling part of the move, while the second value is the damage done by the aerial kick Blanka performs just before falling.

This is a very bad move, in general. It has a too long start-up and a too slow active part. Finally, the recovery is not as good as one would expect for such a slow move.
