Gameplay Overview


  • cr.B, cr.A xx Trap Shot (tornado kick and mirage kick can combo from cr.A, but require immediate canceling to combo and Tornado Kick can whiff is not close enough. Stick with Trap Shot.)
  • Close D xx D Tornado Kick
  • (Corner) cl.D xx Double Strike (Second hit does not combo midscreen)
  • (corner) cl.D (1 hit)/cl.B xx A Surprise Rose, D Tornado Kick. King's most damaging BnB that requires no meter. Surprise Rose generally does not lift crouchers, so keep it for stun combos or punishing mistakes.
  • cl.D (1 hit) xx Silent Flash. Must cancel cl.D on the first hit to connect, which requires buffering before doing the cl.D. Not the most practical, but can serve as a punish and deals more damage than her corner juggle.
