Feng Shui Engine

Juri's Ultra I, Feng Shui Engine, is among the most complex moves in the game. Learning how to use it properly is almost like learning a new character. However, once mastered, it can be an extremely dangerous tool. The key is to keep the opponent guessing with a constant barrage of mix-ups and capitalize on openings.

The information on this page has been tested with Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition. If something has the "[AE]" tag, it means that it is new to SSFIVAE.

Effects

Here is a list of the known effects of activating Feng Shui Engine.

Magic chain

All of Juri's normal attacks can be chained together, with the following restrictions:

  • A move can only be chained to a button of equal or higher strength.
  • Each button can only be used once per chain.
  • Crouching HK cannot be chained out of.
  • Sekku (Right.gif + Forward.gif) can be chained into, but is not itself cancelable.

Special/Super cancels

The following attacks become special/super-cancelable:

  • close standing HK (2nd hit)
  • far standing HP
  • far standing MK
  • far standing HK (after airborne period ends)
  • crouching HK

Only special-cancelable when chained into:

  • far standing MP

Juggle properties

The following moves gain altered juggle properties (see Juggle Property Guide for details):

Become JP1:

  • close standing MP
  • close standing HP
  • close standing MK (2nd hit)
  • close standing HK (2nd hit)
  • far standing MP
  • far standing HP
  • far standing MK
  • far standing HK

Meter and stun

Juri's meter and stun mechanics change as follows:

  • No stun can be dealt.
  • No Super meter can be gained.
  • Revenge meter still increases normally.

Frame data

The following frame data is changed:

  • Sekku
    • frame advantage on hit: +6 (normally +1 or +2)
  • close standing MP
    • startup: 7 (normally 5)
  • close standing MK
    • startup: 8 (normally 6)

Hitboxes

The following hitboxes change:

  • far standing HK
    • active hitbox no longer extends below Juri's leg
  • FSE-chained standing LP
    • AE st.LP hitbox buff is not present [AE]
      • active hitbox reduced slightly
      • vulnerable box increased during active frames

Using Feng Shui Engine

The most important part of using Feng Shui Engine is, of course, combos. To reduce clutter and make things easier to remember, all combos are organized in a tree-style format. Unfortunately, there are some character-specific differences between combos, mainly due to cr.HP not always working in combos, while also being a good source of damage. However, note that cr.HP has a lot of knockback, so it may cause unfavorable positioning for continuing pressure, especially mid-screen.

Here are the lists to remember. They are subdivided into tiers based on how often the characters cause combos to fail.

  • {A#} - cr.HP sometimes whiffs
    • {A1}
      • Sakura
    • {A2}
      • C Viper
    • {A3}
      • Abel, Cammy, Gen, Guile, Guy, Juri, Rose; crouching characters
    • {A4}
      • Chun-Li, M Bison
  • {B} - cr.HK whiffs if chained from cr.HP
    • Adon, Balrog, Cammy, El Fuerte, Rufus, T Hawk, Vega

Similar combos are listed in order from weakest to strongest. The weakest combo of each group works on all characters. Weaker combos will be marked with references to these lists, indicating that they are optimal for the listed characters. Any exceptions (usually caused by fireballs) will be noted.

Set-ups

Combos into Feng Shui Engine

  • (qcf+[LK] stored) cr.MK xx ]LK[ (FADC), qcfx2+PPP, cl.MK - cl.MP
    • cl.HK xx qcb+KK[, st.MK] - (338, SKD [mid-screen] / 354, reset [corner]) {A1-4}
    • cl.HK - cr.HP xx qcb+KK[, st.MK] - (350, SKD [mid-screen] / 357, reset [corner]) - does not work on Evil Ryu, Yang, or Yun
    • cr.HK - (276, HKD+) {A1} {B}
    • cr.HP - cr.HK - (307, HKD+)
  • (qcf+[LK] stored) cr.MK xx ]LK[ (FADC), qcfx2+PPP, cl.LK - cl.MP
    • cl.HK xx qcb+KK[, st.MK] - (339, SKD [mid-screen] / 367, reset [corner]) {A1-3}
    • cl.HK - cr.HP xx qcb+KK[, st.MK] - (371, SKD [mid-screen] / 392, reset [corner]) - works on Guile; does not work on Chun-Li midscreen
    • cr.MK - cr.HK - (264, HKD+) {A1-2} {B}
    • cr.HP - cr.HK - (288, HKD+) {Rufus}
    • cr.MK - cr.HP - cr.HK - (305, HKD+); works on Vega

Corner only:

  • (qcf+[LK] stored) cr.MK xx ]LK[, qcfx2+PPP, cl.LK - cl.MP
    • cl.HK xx qcb+KK, st.MK - (367, reset)
    • cr.MK - cr.HK - (264, HKD+)

In the event that you land a jump-in, it is possible to follow up with an FSE combo.

  • j.HK, qcfx2+PPP, cl.LK - cl.MP
    • cr.MK - cl.HK xx qcb+KK[, st.MK] - (384, SKD [mid-screen] / 412, reset [corner]) {A1-4}
    • cr.MK - cl.HK - cr.HP xx qcb+KK - (417, SKD)
    • cl.HK - cr.HP xx qcb+KK, st.MK - (441, reset) [corner]
    • cr.MK - cr.HK - (282, HKD+) {A1-2} {B}
    • cr.MK - cr.HP - cr.HK - (333, HKD+)

Knockdown set-ups

After a throw, it is possible to activate FSE and then safe-jump. Only Assatsu Kick (backward throw) works midscreen, but either one works in the corner. Crouching MK or crouching HK can be used as an option-select to catch backdashes and evade certain reversals.

  • b throw, qcfx2+PPP, jump, j.HK, [(option-select)] [...]
  • n/f throw, qcfx2+PPP, jump, j.HK, [(option-select)] [...] [corner]

Another set-up is possible after hitting with a Fuhajin store midscreen.

  • qcf+[K], qcfx2+PPP, ]LK[ (FADC) [midscreen] - For best results, hit the Fuhajin store from max range, and do everything as fast as possible. If the knockdown is teched, the Fuhajin hits meaty, and 3-frame reversals can be blocked. Otherwise, there is still enough time to safe-jump.

Resets

After a focus attack, you may want to use a reset to avoid damage scaling, especially after stunning an opponent with a combo.

  • Focus Attack (lv.2/3)
    • dash, jump forward, j.LK, qcfx2+PPP, dash [...]
    • dash, jump forward, qcfx2+PPP, cl.LK, dash [...]
    • backdash, qcfx2+PPP, dash, cl.LK, dash [...]
    • backdash, jump forward, j.MP, qcfx2+PPP, cl.MP, dash [...] [corner]

(Note: Focus attack set-ups may not always work correctly on all characters.)

Juggle combos that typically lead into Fuharenjin/Kaisen Dankairaku can also be used as resets for FSE.

  • (air-to-air) j.MP, qcfx2+PPP, cl.LK, dash [...]
  • (air-to-air) j.MP, qcfx2+PPP, cl.HP, st.MK xx ]LK[ (FADC) [...] - The Fuhajin hits meaty, and 5-frame reversals can be blocked.
  • j.qcb+K, qcfx2+PPP, cl.MP [...] - Shikusen (j.qcb+K) must hit very low for this to work.
  • j.qcb+KK, qcfx2+PPP, cl.MP [...]

Armor-canceling

The SFIV armor-canceling glitch can be used to activate FSE at times when it otherwise would not work. In this case, we want to use EX Kasatushi as the armored move, and then immediately use Feng Shui Engine as an attack is being absorbed. This is probably the easiest way to input it:

Qcb.png D.png Df.png + P.png P.png ~ Qcf.png + 3p.png

If you catch your opponent leaving predictable holes in their offense, you can use this to absorb a move and punish them during its recovery. One common scenario is Ryu doing cr.MK xx Hadoken from max range. You would input the armor-cancel Ultra as a reversal after blocking the cr.MK. The Hadoken would be absorbed by EX Kasatushi, which would then be canceled into Feng Shui Engine. Ryu is left with significant recovery from the Hadoken, giving you a free combo. If the Ryu player chose not to use a Hadoken, Juri would simply use EX Kasatushi, which would not waste the revenge meter and would most likely not get punished as hard as a blocked Kaisen Dankairaku.

After activation

Fuhajin not stored

These are the BnB combos for FSE.

  • cr.LK - cl.MP
    • cr.MK - cl.HK xx qcb+KK[, st.MK] - (323, SKD / 358, reset [corner]) {A1-3}
    • cl.HK - cr.HP xx qcb+KK[, st.MK] - (356, SKD / 391, reset [corner]) {A4}
    • cr.MK - cl.HK - cr.HP xx qcb+KK[, st.MK] - (365, SKD / 393, reset [corner])
    • cr.MK - cr.HK - (201, HKD+) {A1-2} {B}
    • cr.HP - cr.HK - (233, HKD+) {Rufus}
    • cr.MK - cr.HP - cr.HK - (262, HKD+)
  • f+MK
    • cr.MP - cr.MK - cl.HK xx qcb+KK[, cl.MP] - (373, SKD / 408, reset [corner])
    • cl.LK - cl.MP - cr.MK - cr.HK - (252, HKD+)
    • cr.MK - Use this if landing f+MK from further away.
      • xx qcb+KK[, cl.MP] - (274, SKD / 323, reset [corner])
      • cr.HK - (202, HKD+)

Some people might try to throw Juri when she activates FSE. If predicted, it can be countered with close standing MK, leading into a full combo. These combos can also be used as punishers and focus attack follow-ups.

  • cl.MK - cl.MP
    • cl.HK xx qcb+KK[, st.MK] - 349, SKD / 391, reset [corner]) {A1-4}
    • cl.HK - cr.HP xx qcb+KK[, st.MK] - 401, SKD / 436, reset [corner])
    • cr.HK - (207, HKD+) {A1} {B}
    • cr.HP - cr.HK - (278, HKD+)

The following combo is a more optimal punisher for Chun-Li and M Bison.

  • cr.MK - cl.MP - cl.HK - cr.HP xx qcb+KK[, st.MK] - (396, SKD / 431, reset [corner]) {A4}

Fuhajin stored

cl.MK can replace cr.LP in these combos for throw bait and punishers.

  • cr.LP - cl.MP
    • cl.HK xx ]LK[, st.MP
      • cl.HK xx qcb+KK, cl.MP - (419, reset [corner])
      • cr.MK - cr.HK - (337, HKD+ [corner])
    • cl.HK xx ]LK[ (FADC), cl.MP
      • cl.HK xx qcb+KK[, st.MK] - (392, SKD / 413, reset [corner]) {A1-4}
      • cl.HK - cr.HP xx qcb+KK[, st.MK] - (414, SKD / 428, reset) [corner]
      • cr.MK - cr.HK - (331, HKD+) {A1-3} {B}
      • cr.HP - cr.HK - (351, HKD+)
  • f+MK, cr.MP
    • cl.HK xx ]LK[, st.MP - cl.HK xx qcb+KK, cl.MP - (459, reset [corner])
    • cr.MK - cl.HK xx ]LK[, st.MP - cr.MK - cr.HK - (386, HKD+ [corner])

Between combos

Perhaps the biggest obstacle with FSE is getting a chance to do a combo, especially against determined turtles. Juri has several options for breaking through an opponent's defense, like frame traps, overheads, and throws. Throws don't do anything special during FSE, but damage is damage.

After successfully scoring an FSE combo, there are a few options. Midscreen, you can either end with crouching HK and continue pressure on the opponent's wakeup or end with LK Senpusha (qcb+LK) and go for a reset. In the corner, you can also end with EX Senpusha (qcb+KK) and reset with close or far standing MP, which can be followed by dash-under mix-ups. If trying to get a bit of extra damage for a KO, you can also follow up a corner EX Senpusha (qcb+KK) with cl.HP xx qcf+MK+HK.

Frame traps

  • cr.LK/cl.LK - cl.LP (miss), cl.LK [...] - The light kicks combo on hit, and you can mix in a throw at any point here.
  • cl.LK, cr.MP/cr.MK [...] - This is a standard 3f frame trap for Juri. You can do a throw after the cl.LK or cancel the animation of cr.MP into a kara throw.
  • (qcf+[LK] stored) [...] xx ]LK[ / qcf+LK+MK, cr.MK/cr.MP [...] [corner] - This makes a minimum gap of 1-2f, and it allows you to start a new FSE string.

Closing distance

Any "safe" pressure strings will continually move Juri backward on block, so it occasionally becomes necessary to take a risk to get back in.

  • Fuhajin (release)/qcb+K (FADC)

You can do this at pretty much any time to keep pressure going. It's the safest option, but it costs 2 EX bars.

  • Sekku (f+MK)

If chained into, this makes a gap of around 7-10f, depending on what it was chained from.

  • Focus Attack, dash

Level 1 is -3 on block. Level 2 takes 21f to charge, and it is +3 on block.

  • j.qcb+K, cl.MP

Shikusen takes at least 18f to come out from the ground, but it is useful because it tends to beat low attacks. If it hits, you can reset and continue with more pressure strings.

  • st.HK

With FSE activated, the part of this move's active hitbox below Juri's leg disappears, causing it to whiff against many crouching characters whom it would normally hit. This causes Juri to recover right in front of an opponent, giving another opportunity to attack. This is useful for going over an opponent's low pokes and then punishing their recovery, or it can simply be used to catch them off-guard if they are too focused on blocking.

Sweep follow-ups

  • [...] cr.HK
    • walk forward, Sekku, cr.MK [...]
    • walk forward, cr.HK
    • walk forward, cr.MK - cr.HK
    • dash, cr.LK [...]
    • [xx qcf+[K],] walk forward, jump, [(discard Fuhajin)], j.MK/j.HK [...] - If done correctly, this makes a very ambiguous cross-up with j.MK, which is especially nasty when coupled with Juri's ability to use j.HK to fake a cross-up even when j.MK would normally be a real cross-up. The Fuhajin store is for moving Juri forward if this is used as a follow-up to a midscreen combo where cr.HP was used. Effectiveness may vary per character.
    • xx qcb+MK [...] [midscreen] - This allows you to switch sides after a sweep, except from long range (usually depends on whether or not cr.HP preceded cr.HK). There is enough time to do a cross-up afterwards.

Option-selects

With FSE activated, Juri gains a new way to do option-selects on an opponent's wakeup. From a meaty cr.LK, input the next attack in your FSE chain followed by the move to option-select with, followed by the rest of your FSE string. If inputted correctly, the option-select move should come out right after the recovery of the meaty attack ends if it whiffs. If the meaty attack connects, the FSE string should come out, and the option-select is ignored, since it is inputted during the startup of another move.

Examples:

  • cr.LK, cr.MK, (cr.HK), cl.MP (easiest)
  • cr.LK, cl.MP, (cr.HK), cr.MK

The cr.HK option-select should work on every character's backdash except Dhalsim and Makoto.

Fuzzy overheads

By taking advantage of some hitbox properties, Juri gains access to some very dangerous mix-ups with instant overheads. Save up your meter for these, as they tend to burn a lot of it, especially mid-screen. Keep in mind that instant overheads can't be reliably hit-confirmed, and j.qcb+K is unsafe on block. If you don't want to take the risk, you can always fall back on your "slow" overhead for safer mix-ups.

Not all setups require Feng Shui Engine to be activated, but they will be listed here for convenience.

The strings that lead into the mix-ups are not very different from the ones used for maximum damage combos. These sequences are fairly common:

  • Anywhere:
    • cr.LK - cl.MP - cr.MK - cl.HK
    • cr.MK - cl.MP - cl.HK
  • Mid-screen:
    • cr.LK - cl.MP - cr.MK - cl.HP - st.HK
  • Corner:
    • f+MK, cr.MK - cl.MP - cl.HK


The setups generally end with the following patterns:

  • Anywhere:
    • cl.HP, st.MP (FADC)
    • qcf+[K], st.MP (FADC)
    • j.qcb+KK, f+MK, walk forward
  • Mid-screen:
    • cl.HP - st.HK, walk forward
  • Corner:
    • qcf+[K], cl.MP/st.MP
    • qcb+KK, cl.MP


From an instant overhead j.MP, these are possible follow-ups:

  • j.qcb+K, cl.MP/st.MP - (146/154)
  • j.qcb+KK, f+MK - (266)
  • j.qcb+KK, j.HP - (282)
  • j.qcb+KK, st.HK - (298)
  • j.qcb+KK, qcb+KK - (330)
