Introduction

Welcome to the strategy section. This article is one of the larger sections in the wiki, so we advise you to make good use of the Table of Contents.

The Basics

Notation

A guide to the various notation you may encounter. Typically the game specific strategy pages will include all relevant notion explained as well.

Joystick Notation

                   .- up (u)
                   |
  up+back (ub) - 7 8 9 - up+forward (uf)

      back (b) - 4   6 - forward (f)

down+back (db) - 1 2 3 - down+foward (df)
                   |
                   `- down (d)

Note: These numbers can be easily referenced by looking at your keyboard "numpad". Think of it as a joystick/controller that is facing to the right. "5" is used to signify "neutral".

  • QCF - Quarter Circle Forward (D, DF, F)
  • QCB - Quarter Circle Back (D, DB, B)
  • HCF - Half Circle Forward (B, DB, D, DF, F)
  • HCB - Half Circle Back (F, DF, D, DB, B)
  • DP - Dragon Punch Motion (F, D, DF)
  • RDP - Reverse Dragon Punch Motion (B, D, DB)
  • 360 - Full Circle Motion (for example F, D, B, U, F)
  • 720 - Double Full Circle Motion (for example F, D, B, U, F, D, B, U, F)
  • AD - Air dash (in air, PP); Commonly followed by specified direction

  • PP or 2P - Press two punches simultaneously

  • KK or 2K - Press two kicks simultaneously

e.g. MK + HK

  • Charge - Hold specified input for ~two seconds before proceeding to next command.

  • s. - Standing; always followed by specified attack

e.g. s.LP = Standing LP

  • c. - Crouching; always followed by specified attack

e.g. c.MP = Crouching MP

  • j. - Jumping; always followed by specified attack

e.g. j.HP = Jumping HP

  • sj. - Superjumping; always followed by specified attack

e.g. sj.LK = Superjumping LK

  • + - Simultaneously with; always placed between two actions

  • xx - cancel; always placed between two actions

  • -> - chain; always placed between two actions

e.g. s.LP -> s.MP = Chain s.LP into s.MP

  • /\ - jump; clarifies transition from ground to air actions

e.g. c.HP /\ j.LP = Jump-cancel c.HP into j.LP

  • \/ - land; clarifies transition from air to ground actions

e.g. j.HP \/ s.LP = Follow j.HP with s.LP
