Fatal Fury Special/Mai Shiranui

From SuperCombo Wiki
Ffspecmai.png

Introduction

"Nippon Ichi!" Easily one of gaming's most iconic characters, Mai Shiranui takes to the fighting stage in Fatal Fury Special as a powerful zoning character, capable of shutting anyone out with ease. Easy to play as right away, she has great anti-air tools, a great fireball, a deadly (albeit very risky) super, simple combos, rewarding damage, and a unique stage where she actually gains an additional advantage from it, Mai Shiranui is holding nothing back. Her super is very risky as already mentioned, as while it does great damage and decent chip damage, everyone can very easily punish her on block and can be predictable. Her mobility too is not the greatest, albeit not as bad as some other characters. And while she may seem like a great glass cannon type character, she's not. You must play her defensively as a strict keepaway character. But no matter who she's up against, chances are her impeccable zoning give her an advantage at all times as even her up close game isn't too lacking when she's forced to confront the opponent.

Pros Cons
  • Strong defense
  • Easy to use
  • Fast normals
  • Jumps and backsteps are a bit quirky
  • Short combos
  • Not suited for rushdown
