New & Old Versions Comparison

Here is the list of differences:

  • Obvious stuff: O.M.Bison can not tech throws and does not have a Super;
  • O.M.Bison has some differences in some of his normals:
    • Close Standing Forward has much worse priority;
    • Far Standing Forward has worse priority as a poke, but is less vulnerable to low normals (overall, N.M.Bison's better);
    • Far Standing Roundhouse has same changes as the far forward;
    • Diagonal Jump Strong is a 1-hit normal that does not have juggle properties;
  • Devil's Reverse special move was reworked, and O.M.Bison's has a reversal bug similar to those of T.Hawk's Rising Hawk and the supers of Sagat, Ken, and Dhalsim (executing the last special you did instead);

O.M.Bison is a waste of time. His standing kicks are worse, he does not have his powerful Diagonal Jump Strong that juggles, his Devil's Reverse is useless and he can not tech throws as well. But what really puts O.M.Bison very far from his N.counterpart is the lack of his awesome super, which can save your life from many situations where you find yourself helpless without it.

Slide trip. It is useful if opponent techs your tick throw, and also great for positioning with a knockdown. This is quite unsafe on block, from most distances. It also does not work as anti-air.

This move doesn't have many uses, but there is one situation in which it shines: after being bitten by Blanka you would normally expect him to just jump at you imediatelly after it with Jumping Jab or Short and try to Bite you again. Well this move happens to be able to trade with both moves with this specific spacing, just hold upback and do it right after Dictator goes to the air. This doesn't prevents Blanka to jump at you on that situation since his Jumping Fierce can beat this for example, be he has to do it in such a timing that would not hit Dictator if he just stayed on the ground blocking, so this creates a mixup situation.

Throws

O.M.Bison can only throw with Strong and Fierce. He has no kick throws, but Bison can still tech throws with any medium or higher punch or kick even if Bison has no kick throws. This rule only applies to all ST "new" characters, though, so as an "old" character, you won't be teching anything.

Bison flies across the screen in flames. It can do a maximum of 3 blocked hits. The distance and the speed at which it travels depends on the strength of the punch. It has been severely weakened since Super SFII, no longer has great priority besides the Jab version. Can be used to escape corners at times and can also hit opponents from behind/underneath with ridiculous timing and a lot of balls. Generally, stick with the scissor kick. If you make a mistake you can easily corner yourself. Normals beat this far too easily.

  • Double Knee Press a.k.a. Scissor Kick: (Charge ←, →, K)

Bison kicks the opponent twice in a forward motion. The distance and speed at which it travels depends on the strength of the kick. When properly spaced to do only one hit, they can be quite safe and useful in pindown strategies. They also are quite useful for scoring knockdowns if opponent tries to counter standing kicks or do low attacks. Can be used as a ghetto anti air, unlike the Psycho Crusher which gets stuffed a lot.

Bison flies towards the opponent and stomps their head with his boots. You can move very flexibly after the head stomp makes contact with a grounded opponent, but when the head stomp hits an airborne opponent, the control over mobility is not as flexible. Works well to get over fireballs.

This is the punch that hits the opponent's head after head stomp. You can move left or right using the joystick while performing this move. The active hitting duration of the move depends on the strength of the punch. This can combo in really weird situations.

O.M.Bison has a reversal bug with this move; if you attempt to reverse with it at any strength, you will instead perform the last special move you used.
