Rose

SSFIV-Rose Face.jpg

A fortune teller from Europe, Rose has a mastery of "Soul Power," the spiritual opposite of M. Bison's "Psycho Power." Thus, Rose has taken it upon herself to put an end to M. Bison and the last remaining source of Psycho Power. However, in an encounter in which Rose felt she had defeated M. Bison, it turned out that Bison inhabited her body at "death" and survived through using her as a vessel. Once Bison found a new body, Rose awoke and vowed to recover and make sure to finish the job next time they meet.


In a nutshell

Rose does not excel in any particular area. Her offense nor defense are particularly strong, but taking advantage of that and taking advantage of her perceived vulnerability is what makes Rose effective. Rose is a character who is like a mouse trap, always baiting you and then hurting you whenever you think you're free to move. She appears to leave herself vulnerable in so many situations, so it's very easy to trick opponents into opening themselves up and taking damage from her counter attacks. There is definitely a lot of risks you have to take with Rose, but those who do it right can easily reap the rewards.

Special Moves

Soul Spark

Soul Spark.jpg
Rose's projectile. Used to agitate opponents as well as control space. Not very affective at beating down other projectiles due to its high start up and recovery but decent for gaining super meter and keeping your opponent on his toes. Use with caution, for it can and will be punished if used indiscriminately. EX.Spark being the more viable selection, especially since Rose can spare the meter.

Soul Spiral

Soul Spiral.jpg
Rose's only Armor Breaker outside of Ultra I. You will see this special a lot since it is part of Rose's bread and butter combos. Very affective special with a slight invincibility on EX. Use at maximum range to benefit from the distance, if blocked, a quick back dash will keep you safe from most retaliations. A decent wake up choice but very punishable ob block.

Soul Throw

Soul Throw.jpg
Considered an anti air but use sparingly, for it is often snuffed out in mid air if not timed accurately. In most cases, you would be better off using crouching H.Punch for more consistent results if your opponent is anticipating the throw. Can be linked after a H.Punch Reflect, which was absent from the original SF4 vanilla as well as a finisher for both hits from Ultra II while your opponent is still in juggle state.

Soul Reflect

Rose's signature special as well as her most well loved and feared. Can be used to either absorb an enemy projectile and transfer its energy into almost half a super meter bar or reflect horizontally or at an angle for incoming jump in attacks. Very good start up and recovery, which allows to easily beat down projectile spammers all the while gaining meter at an insane rate. At close range, reflect becomes a good link for your combos and can be used to link into a Soul Throw, Super and Ultra II.

Ultra Combos

Ultra Move I: Illusion Spark

Illusion Spark is a short to mid range attack that causes Rose's scarf to extend and can grab an unwary opponent for major damage. Players who have a tendency of jumping in have much to fear from this Ultra, for they risk landing on the active frames, which is similar to Dhalsim's S.HP hit box. Another good thing about this Ultra other then its excellent reach, is its invincibility that helps wonders for players attempting to counter.
You can quickly execute this attack as a reaction to many opposing Specials and Ultras, so quick execution is key for landing it as soon as your opponent activates any of his attack, opens himself up with a whiff or snatch the player on start up if you are quick enough. It is very easy to avoid this Ultra, so setting up for its execution is very important, but once you land it, you are treated with one very entertaining animation and lots of damage.

Armor Break

Ultra Move II: Soul Satellite

The preferred choice for most Rose players due to its offensive and defensive potential. Rose summons two orbs that orbit around her for approximately 10 seconds if left undisturbed. The orbs will disappear after its allotted time, connects with the opponent, blocked or Rose takes damage. This Ultra by itself is not very powerful. Each of the orbs only do 60-120 damage a piece but serve as an extension to Rose's combo variations. Example: Jump in HP xx Ultra II xx C.MP xx M.Spiral xx Super Note: Rose cannot execute her Super until both orbs are expended, any combo involving her Super will only work after her second orb connects. With the two extra hits from the orbs, Rose is able to execute follow up attacks, extending your combo and significantly increasing your damage output. This is one of the many possibilities with this Ultra and the damage potential will keep your opponents mindful and will often avoid the orbs by retreating a safe distance until the orbs vanish.
That is when the defensive aspect of this Ultra comes in. Rush down characters are usually a problem for Rose and become fairly difficult to push back during a never ending onslaught of attacks. Soul Satellite becomes a life saver during its activation and your orbs begin there revolution, forcing your opponent to cease and desist or risk a possible table turning combo. This allows you to recover and regain some ground and buy you some time to come up with a plan of action. Be forewarned though, for experienced players have learned to attack in between the orbs during its revolution to snuff them out early, making it a complete waste of Ultra. It should be noted that Rose has invincibility during the summoning and can block directly after.

The Basics

Rose is a character best played with Flexibility. All the necessary tools in order to deal with the vast collection of character in SSF4 are present and being able to adapt accordingly is of utmost importance. Rose has quite a few things going for her that make her a very formidable fighter. Her walking speed is quite good and her back dash is superb with invincibility on the starting frames and make much of her well spaced attacks quite safe in most situations, she also has very good poke options and the range for many of her attacks are excellent. Soul reflect is Rose's defining special, because of this unique skill, Rose is unable to be pinned down by fire ball spammers and can quickly absorb or reflect incoming attacks back to there opponent, all the while gaining super meter at an incredible rate. Rose has gained quite a few buffs during the transition from SF4 to SSF4 and is now deadlier then ever, most noticeably, being able to combo her reflect into soul throw. Rose is not a weak character, but due to her flexibility, she isn't especially strong in any particular area either. Her stamina is below average and her damage output is not as great and if you are not on guard, Rose can take a very nasty beating against rush down characters such as Akuma(Gouki) and Bison(Dictator). One other sigh of dismay goes to the absence of an overhead attack which, not all too crippling, would have been a welcomed addition. Other then those few gripes, Rose is more then a worthy adversary to any of the characters on the roster and in the hands of pro-player Rose can be a force to be reckoned with.

      Note 2: This is Rose's most damaging combo with a whopping 607 damage. That is over 50% to 60% of health for most characters. On Seth, the damage is reduced by 10% to 597. Even with the slight reduction, this combo will leave Seth with about 20% to 30% health. Not certain if this is the case for other characters.
