Cody

SSFIV-Cody Face.jpg

Lauded as a hero in the rescuing of Mayor Mike Haggar's daughter Jessica from the Mad Gear Gang in Metro City, it was expected for Cody to live a promising future as Jessica was also his girlfriend. However, the lure of combat from battling Mad Gear never left his blood and Cody turned to a life of constant fighting out of boredom! Eventually, his penchant for picking random brawls landed him in jail, and his relationship with Jessica was permanently ruined. But from time to time, Cody escapes prison almost at will and returns to the life of fighting, now taking to the Street Fighting circuit to find opponents.


In a nutshell

Cody is a good, all-around character who is similar to Ryu in this regard, and only this regard. Despite being easy to learn, Cody's true strengths lie in one of the most advanced aspects in all of Street Fighter - frame traps. Cody is, for lack of a better word, a demon when it comes to frame traps. The moment he gains momentum in a match, he can and will keep you under constant pressure, waiting for that one opportunity to tick throw or punish should your guard be broken down. Because of this, however, Cody's defense is one of the worst in the game. He has very few options for when he ends up getting pressured himself. Despite this, if you want a solid character who plays different from the norm, give Cody a try.

AE ver. 2012 Changes

Advance

Increased speed when moving forward.


Retreat

Increased speed of retreat.


Hammer Hook (Stick Forward + Heavy Punch)

Increased hit and block stun by 2F. This gives the attacker a +3F advantage on a hit against a standing opponent, a -1F (dis)advantage against a crouching opponent, and a -4F (dis)advantage when blocked. Enabled execution even when holding a knife.


Standing Light Punch (With Knife)

Lengthened hit stun, giving the attacker a possible +6F advantage on a hit.


Standing Medium Punch (With Knife)

Changed from a 1-hit to a 2-hit attack. No change to action or damage.


Standing Heavy Punch (With Knife)

Lengthened hit stun, giving the attacker a possible +3F advantage on a hit.


Crouching Medium Punch (With Knife)

Shrunk hurtbox on attacking arm.Also set hitbox active period to 4F. No change to overall frame count.


Crouching Heavy Punch (With Knife)

Startup changed from 9F to 7F. Changes total frame count from 24F to 22F.


Jumping Light Punch (With Knife)

Increased length of hit detection.


Jumping Medium Punch (With Knife)

Expanded hitbox up and down.


Pick up Knife

Made transition to block possible during move.


Bad Spray

Changed from a 1-hit to a 2-hit attack. No change to overall damage.Also made second hit super-cancelable.


EX Zonk Knuckle

Increased forward knockdown distance somewhat.


Ruffian Kick

Expanded medium kick’s hitbox forward slightly.


Angled Jumping Medium Punch

Expanded hitbox up and down.


AE Changes

  • Crouching Light Kick now has a 3 frame start up. Frame advantage on hit is still the same. Should be a better low poke, with reach, now.
  • F + Hard Kick has more ability to juggle after connecting it. Until now, on a grounded opponent, the first hits of EX Criminal Upper didn't connect, but now they will. This new combo ability makes this move a great deal deadlier as a long range punish, and as such your opponents will be forced to respect it a lot more. A popular followup from this kick in AE is the MK Ruffian Kick, as it not only tacks on over 100% of the damage but also leaves you in a nice position to start some pressure. The timing can be a little bit tricky but only really if you're trying to get it on reaction. If the f.HK is a guaranteed hit then you should be pretty much 100% successful with this followup after some training [in any case, Cody isn't that unsafe if he misses the link and whiffs the Ruffian, so it's always worth going for - if not for the damage then at least for the unscaled meter gain!].
  • The range at which Cody can pick up the knife has been increased.
