Garou: Mark of the Wolves/Khushnood Butt

From SuperCombo Wiki

Introduction

Marco Rodriguez. Also known as Marco Rodrigues when using Portuguese spelling. Otherwise known for his English localized name -- Khushnood Butt.

Gameplay

Khushnood has many tools at his disposal to answer anything an opponent might do. With a 0 frame anti-air super, the fastest projectiles in the game, special moves that all knock down and quickly pressure into a corner, and a special move that does super level punishment damage, he has a lot going for him.
Khushnood's main drawback is his randomness. Breaking his dragon punch can be unreliable outside of certain combos because the window to brake changes based on when the move connects, and may connect and not juggle the opponent up. Played with precision, this can be avoided.
Bait a mistake, knock 'em down, then get in close and keep the pressure on.

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Good offensive pressure and damaging conversions, even without meter
  • Safe on block break move that can be easily comboed into
  • Best fireball in the game; travels very fast, does high damage, and leads to a knockdown in close range
  • Relatively fast command normal overhead that can lead to a full combo
  • Need to be able to guard cancel in order to have a stronger defense
  • Lacks far-reaching cancellable normals (besides being able to renda cancel his st.A/cr.B)

Disclaimer: This is meant to teach basic terminology used when describing moves.
HitBox: A predefined area (usually a group of rectangles or circles) that tell the game how any given attack can come in contact with a character. Hitboxes are invisible to the player when normally playing.
HurtBox: A predefined area (usually a group of rectangles or circles) that tell the game how your character is allowed to get hit by any incoming attack. Specifically, you'll get hit by (or block) an attack if that attack's hitbox ever overlaps your hurtbox.
Throw Box/Range: Active throw frames and range. Your opponent will be thrown in this field if not in block or hit stun.
Projectile Box: Hit box on a projectile attack.
Guard/Counter Box: The Guard Box or Counter Box. This appears when blocking or using a counter move.
Push Box: Has no bearing on hurt/hit boxes. Just allows characters to not pass through each other. (Also known as "Collision Box".)
Command the input for the attack.
Start Up The number of frames that initiate at the beginning of an attack after the input. And when the first hitbox is present.

The first active frame is after the last startup frame.

Guard The way this move must be blocked.

High or H or Overhead (especially when from the ground) -- must be blocked standing.
High-Low or HL or Mid -- can be blocked either standing or crouching.
Low or L -- must be blocked crouching.

+ signifies how many advantage frames the attacker has.
- signifies how many disadvantage frames the attacker has.
KD means the attack will knock the opponent down.
circle means cancelable on both hit/block.
infinity means chain cancelable with the same button (renda cancel).

One of the better T.O.P moves, has:

-Respectable damage (even if you can't combo from it)
-Used in some counter hit juggle combos
-Used in chip kill scenarios
-Potentially useful as GC bait as well
A single hit usually also launches them high, a glance hit or the full thing also always does a hard knockdown, potentially useful for getting a second to breathe.
Has niche but numerous applications.

Special Moves

Ko-ou Ken
Qcf.png+Kof.lp.png/Kof.sp.png
The damage and guard crush values in parentheses are at short-range.

Fastest fireball in the game. Does more damage and also leads to a knockdown in close range. Used for zoning/controlling space in neutral and as a meterless combo ender.

It is possible to renda cancel into his fireball from a st.A by inputting 5A > 236C~A or 5A > 236A~C (the timing is like chain cancelling his st.A).

Honestly both are used somewhat evenly, keeps people on their toes at further ranges.

Smelly special move, mainly used as a callout read and little else. Second hit knocks down, while being surprisingly stubby. Pretty much the whole orange flash ISN'T a hitbox.

Potentially decent as anti-air GC bait, but mind them going for an air JD as a response. The second hit will whiff on ALL crouching opponents on the ground, even Tizoc!

Used more in the corner and in close range, when you would want a safer option than his C break, as there will be more pushback on block and will still be safe on JD.

A staple in Marco's BnB combos. It can be linked or cancelled into from many of his normals as a combo starter. There's no I frames so as a DP it might trade, however you can guard cancel into it. You move more forward during the startup, giving more reach and being more risky than the A version.

Harai

The A version counters mid/high attacks. Marco can convert into his Ko-ou Ken or Haou Shoukou Ken on a successful counter.

4~11F of upper-body counter state, after counter is initiated the counter-attack startup is 2F.

1~3F lower-body invincibility, 4~13F of lower-body counter state, after counter is initiated the counter-attack startup is 2F.

Ryuu-sen Ken
Ch. Kof.sp.png
You need to hold C to charge this, so it's kinda risky and gimmicky.

You can't use all of the following:
-Your C fireball
-Your C DP
-C Haou Shoukou Ken
-Your ability to grab (you can still tech with D though)
-Feint
-Ryuuko Ranbu
-TOP attack

Works as an easy guard cancel or to surprise people due to it's speed, and sometimes as a combo ender.

Ko-sen Kyaku
Ch. Kof.sk.png
Requires holding down the D button to charge. Like his Ryuu-sen Ken, but way less risky to work with, you don't lose much outside of:
-Sweep
-A Great jump-in
-TOP attack
-Kyokugen Ko Hou
-And a situational special move

Can potentially be hard to punish on block for some characters if spaced well (works best with his level 1 charge).
Can also be used as an easy guard cancel thanks to its simple execution or to catch the opponent off guard in neutral and potentially score a counter hit. Can also be used as a combo ender for some combos.

Commonly used as an OTG conversion after a counter hit from farther away. If Marco performs the super just as the opponent touches the ground from a knockdown, the super freeze will prevent the opponent from being able to input a tech roll to escape the OTG.
