Whenever Yashiro loses his bottled water and can't pour water on himself, he gets parched and becomes Yashiro of the Parched Earth. This really pisses him off and gives him super powers and super strength that enable him to slam around niggas like ragdolls and he is really pissed until he can find some water so watch out!

The first combo pretty much covers every combo you will ever do with O.Yashiro. Close C and f+B both do more dmaage but push further back than close C and f+A respectively. You can mix and match them and apply them in the appropriate places. For example if you're going for a very in-close mixup or a backwards/corner crossup, use D,f+B into hcb,f+P/super. If you're a bit further back you may want to use close C,f+A to make sure the hcb,f+P or super throw connects. At the maximum possible range (were talking hitting limbs with cr.C), use cr.C straight into hcf+B.

D throw preferred, but of course his awesome command throws preferred over that.
+
== Move Analysis ==
  
==Normal Moves==
+
=== Normals ===
  
'''Standing A''' - Good long range poke. Generally Standing B is better, but this one is cancelable, so you can cancel into f+A to bait someone mashing or maybe cancel into hcf+D (very risky).
+
'''b or f + kof.hp''' - Breakable, forward knockdown, face forward, rollable.
  
'''Standing B''' - One of the godliest pokes in the game. Fast, long range, stops short hop...stops a lot of other shit too!
+
'''b or f + kof.hk''' - Breakable, reverse knockdown, back turned, un-rollable.
  
'''Standing C''' - Slow recovery, but it is whiff cancelable (f+B preferred) and connects against crouchers. Still, crouching C has all this move's got and more.
+
kof.hk throw preferred, but of course his awesome command throws preferred over that.
  
'''Standing D''' - Uncancelable and super slow recovery, but it is notable that it beats some things. I see Chinese players use it sometimes in specific situations. Mess around with it if you're feeling experimental.
+
==Normal Moves==
  
'''Standing CD''' - Great long range poke with nice priority, cancelable of course.
+
*Standing kof.lp - Good long range poke. Generally Standing B is better, but this one is cancelable, so you can cancel into f + kof.lp to bait someone mashing or maybe cancel into hcf+D (very risky).
  
'''Close B''' - Good move to use if you want to combo into hcf+P. Not bad as a meaty, either (ie good for CD counter baits with hcf+P).
+
*Standing kof.lk - One of the godliest pokes in the game. Fast, long range, stops short hop...stops a lot of other shit too!
  
'''Close C''' - Fast, cancelable.
+
Standing kof.sp - Slow recovery, but it is whiff cancelable (f + kof.lk preferred) and connects against crouchers. Still, crouching C has all this move's got and more.
  
'''Close D''' - Same as above except does more damage but pushes back further.
+
'''Standing kof.sk''' - Uncancelable and super slow recovery, but it is notable that it beats some things. I see Chinese players use it sometimes in specific situations. Mess around with it if you're feeling experimental.
  
'''Crouching A''' - Nice and long range for a cr.A. Cancelable into f+A as an anti-mash setup (mix up with cr.A, hcf+P tick).
+
'''Standing kof.hp + kof.hk''' - Great long range poke with nice priority, cancelable of course.
  
'''Crouching B''' - It's a fast low! And it's chainable into other lights other than itself as you'd expect (timing is a little slower than other characters).
+
'''Close kof.lk''' - Good move to use if you want to combo into hcf + p. Not bad as a meaty, either (ie good for kof.hp + kof.hk counter baits with hcf + p).
  
'''Crouching C''' - One of the best ground pokes and a fantastic anti-air. The first part when his arm isn't fully extended is cancelable. As I noted above, you can use this to hit limbs and cancel into hcf+B (ie at a range where the cr.C will whiff and the hcf+B won't execute if they don't do anything).
+
'''Close kof.hp''' - Fast, cancelable.
  
'''Crouching D''' - Very long range sweep, cancelable and easily cancelable on whiff for safety.
+
'''Close kof.hk''' - Same as above except does more damage but pushes back further.
  
'''Jumping A''' - Awesome jump-in. Similar to Kyo's j.B. Can be used as an instant overhead on large characters (short hop only).
+
'''Crouching kof.lp''' - Nice and long range for a cr.A. Cancelable into f + kof.lp as an anti-mash setup (mix up with d + kof.lp, hcf+P tick).
  
'''Jumping B''' - Okay air-to-air or as a jump-in I guess. There are better jump attacks for those specific uses, though.
+
'''Crouching kof.lk''' - It's a fast low! And it's chainable into other lights other than itself as you'd expect (timing is a little slower than other characters).
  
'''Jumping C''' - Good jump-in, excellent crossup to be used with O.Yashiro's many setups. Experiment to find the crossup hitbox, it's a little weird.
+
'''Crouching kof.hp''' - One of the best ground pokes and a fantastic anti-air. The first part when his arm isn't fully extended is cancelable. As I noted above, you can use this to hit limbs and cancel into hcf + kof.lk (ie at a range where the d + kof.hp will whiff and the hcf + kof.lk won't execute if they don't do anything).
  
'''Jumping D''' - Awesome air-to-air and air-to-ground from long range. Short hop up/back with this is a great poke.
+
'''Crouching kof.hk''' - Very long range sweep, cancelable and easily cancelable on whiff for safety.
  
'''Jumping CD''' - Great air-to-air when they are slightly above you obviously. Good anti-air vs Choi.
+
'''Jumping kof.lp''' - Awesome jump-in. Similar to Kyo's u + kof.lk. Can be used as an instant overhead on large characters (short hop only).
  
==Command Normals==
+
'''Jumping kof.lk''' - Okay air-to-air or as a jump-in I guess. There are better jump attacks for those specific uses, though.
  
'''f+A''' - Overhead and knocks down when done alone. Fast, cancelable, and non-overhead when chained.
+
'''Jumping kof.hp''' - Good jump-in, excellent crossup to be used with O.Yashiro's many setups. Experiment to find the crossup hitbox, it's a little weird.
  
'''f+B''' - Always fast and cancelable, does more damage than f+A but doesn't travel as far. This is the move of choice to cancel into on your opponent's wakeup, since if they reversal roll backwards, you can still whiff cancel into f+B with the same timing (close C/D~f+B) and catch their roll anyway.
+
'''Jumping kof.hk''' - Awesome air-to-air and air-to-ground from long range. Short hop up/back with this is a great poke.
  
==Special Moves==
+
'''Jumping kof.hp + kof.hk''' - Great air-to-air when they are slightly above you obviously. Good anti-air vs Choi.
  
'''Crushing Earth aka Too Tall! (qcb+P)''' - Jumping throw that you can combo anything from. Separates scrubs from good players. In beginner play, you'll see this used often and connect often. In intermediate play, you'll see this move used less and miss about 90% of the time, sometimes being punished really badly. In high level play, you'll see this move used almost never, and every time it gets used whoever uses it loses 50% or more on the spot. I can't blame anyone for using this move if it works a lot, but don't be surprised when it gets owned if you play someone good.
 
  
'''Dancing Earth aka Erogena! ''[Deruga!]'' (hcf+K)''' - Mostly used for comboing off of cr.C as noted above. You can use the D version to 'tick' off of a light attack, but that's just as risky as using qcb+A.
+
=== Command Normals ===
  
'''Smothering Earth (hcb,f+P)''' - Instant, good range command throw. Good for combos and run-ins.
+
=== Special Moves ===
  
'''Tempering Earth aka Yoop! (hcf+P)''' - An invincible throw with some startup. It can be canceled into to go through and grab CD counters (on reaction, even). It does no damage at the beginning but you can followup with your own attack or let the opponent hit the ground for max damage ( make sure you do a hcf+D or a couple hcb,f+P's for meter). This is one of O.Yashiro's scariest mixup tools because of all the setups affterwards:
+
=== Desperation Moves ===
  
- The most basic would be super jump D, then walk under them and mixup which side to attack from as they fall.
+
== Combos ==
  
- A more flashy and awkward to block mixup would be super jump D, then wait a moment and short hop C in the same direction you super jumped. This will make you jump backwards but towards your opponent. If you do it early, you will jump back over the opponent and cross them up. If you wait a movement, you will stay on the same side (but be facing away from them) and hit with a 'backwards' but non-crossup j.C for a deep combo.
+
*cr.C/cl.C/D,f+A/B (optional) xx B Dancing Earth (hcf+B)/Smothering Earth (hcb,f+P)/Dark Hell Paradise Trap (hcb,hcb+P)
  
- The mixups get even crazier if you have them in the corner and even crazier still if you're the 2nd player and can use the 2p side corner crossup bug. Experiment!
+
*cr.A/cl.B xx Tempering Earth (hcf+P)
  
==Desperation Moves==
+
*cr.B/A,cr.A,cr/st.A,B
  
'''Dark Hell Paradise Trap (hcb,hcb+P)''' - Instant super command throw. Can be comboed into from just about anything. Good after empty short hop, etc. Like all instant throws, you can use it as a reversal, but if they hop you're owned.
+
*cr.B,cr.A/st.A xx Smothering Earth (hcb,f+P)/Dark Hell Paradise Trap (hcb,hcb+P)
  
'''Ultra Laser Blast Palm (qcf,qcf+P)''' - You can charge it to be unblockable, but the only setup is off of hcf+P, and it's not meaty anyway so whatever.
+
The first combo pretty much covers every combo you will ever do with O.Yashiro. Close C and f+B both do more dmaage but push further back than close C and f+A respectively. You can mix and match them and apply them in the appropriate places. For example if you're going for a very in-close mixup or a backwards/corner crossup, use D,f+B into hcb,f+P/super. If you're a bit further back you may want to use close C,f+A to make sure the hcb,f+P or super throw connects. At the maximum possible range (were talking hitting limbs with cr.C), use cr.C straight into hcf+B.
 
+
'''Malevolent God of the Earth (qcf,qcf+K)''' - Kind of like the qcb+A move, but it does less damage and has a nifty super freeze so your opponent has all day to think of which cool combo they're gonna use to punish it. Use if you like seeing cool combos.

Orochi Yashiro

KOF98 orochiyashiro small.png

Whenever Yashiro loses his bottled water and can't pour water on himself, he gets parched and becomes Yashiro of the Parched Earth. This really pisses him off and gives him super powers and super strength that enable him to slam around niggas like ragdolls and he is really pissed until he can find some water so watch out!

In a nutshell

O.Yashiro is a mixup/poking based character with long limbs, great damage, and difficult to escape throw/attack games. Some people consider him top-tier, some consider him right under the top-tier. Either way he is a very powerful and popular character. He not a bad choice for beginners, though you might pick up some bad habits like using qcb+A at all ever in your life. He requires average-to-good execution.

Move Analysis

Normals

b or f + kof.hp - Breakable, forward knockdown, face forward, rollable.

b or f + kof.hk - Breakable, reverse knockdown, back turned, un-rollable.

kof.hk throw preferred, but of course his awesome command throws preferred over that.

  • Standing kof.lp - Good long range poke. Generally Standing B is better, but this one is cancelable, so you can cancel into f + kof.lp to bait someone mashing or maybe cancel into hcf+D (very risky).

Standing kof.sk - Uncancelable and super slow recovery, but it is notable that it beats some things. I see Chinese players use it sometimes in specific situations. Mess around with it if you're feeling experimental.

Standing kof.hp + kof.hk - Great long range poke with nice priority, cancelable of course.

Close kof.lk - Good move to use if you want to combo into hcf + p. Not bad as a meaty, either (ie good for kof.hp + kof.hk counter baits with hcf + p).

Close kof.hp - Fast, cancelable.

Close kof.hk - Same as above except does more damage but pushes back further.

Crouching kof.lp - Nice and long range for a cr.A. Cancelable into f + kof.lp as an anti-mash setup (mix up with d + kof.lp, hcf+P tick).

Crouching kof.lk - It's a fast low! And it's chainable into other lights other than itself as you'd expect (timing is a little slower than other characters).

Crouching kof.hp - One of the best ground pokes and a fantastic anti-air. The first part when his arm isn't fully extended is cancelable.

Combos

  • cr.C/cl.C/D,f+A/B (optional) xx B Dancing Earth (hcf+B)/Smothering Earth (hcb,f+P)/Dark Hell Paradise Trap (hcb,hcb+P)
  • cr.A/cl.B xx Tempering Earth (hcf+P)
  • cr.B/A,cr.A,cr/st.A,B
  • cr.B,cr.A/st.A xx Smothering Earth (hcb,f+P)/Dark Hell Paradise Trap (hcb,hcb+P)

The first combo pretty much covers every combo you will ever do with O.Yashiro. Close C and f+B both do more dmaage but push further back than close C and f+A respectively. You can mix and match them and apply them in the appropriate places. For example if you're going for a very in-close mixup or a backwards/corner crossup, use D,f+B into hcb,f+P/super.
