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

Throws

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.

Normal Moves

  • 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.lk - One of the godliest pokes in the game. Fast, long range, stops short hop...stops a lot of other shit too!
  • 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.
  • Standing Snkd.gif - 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. 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).

Crouching kof.hk - Very long range sweep, cancelable and easily cancelable on whiff for safety.

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).

Jumping kof.lk - Okay air-to-air or as a jump-in I guess. There are better jump attacks for those specific uses, though.

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.

Jumping kof.hk - Awesome air-to-air and air-to-ground from long range. Short hop up/back with this is a great poke.

Jumping kof.hp + kof.hk - Great air-to-air when they are slightly above you obviously. Good anti-air vs Choi.

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. 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.
