The framework we’re taking is as follows:


A brief description of the character’s gameplan and their strengths and weaknesses.

Top Moves

A list of all the character's key moves. There is no set number, however many you think is suitable, though we're aiming for around 15.

Please describe in detail how the move is used as well as it's properties. For example is it used to poke, keep out, control space, mix up, pressure, whiff punish, and so on. Does it have evasive properties, how safe is it, range, tracking etc.

As much as possible please try to avoid using frame data, but it can be added in text below the move if you wish. Instead please include a flowchart of the options stemming from some of these key moves (eg Mishima ewgf, Drag WR2, Alisa WR2, Steve dcking etc) against all of the opponent's responses, so players can get an idea of how the moves work off each other, as opposed to just describing them in isolation.

Situational Moves

Analysis of moves that are useful, but not essential. Don't need to go into as much detail as the key moves, and also please try to refrain from listing moves that you'll see only once in a blue moon, or are practically useless.


No combo video material here please. Just a short, practical list of S! starters, staple combos and wall combos.


A list of the character’s block punishment from standing, crouching and moves with pushback.


Breakdown of the rage drive and rage art.

Round Up

A quick summary of all the information above, along with a difficulty ranking that includes that weighs both execution and gameplan.
