Hokuto no Ken/Thouther

From SuperCombo Wiki

Introduction

More than any other character in Hokuto no Ken, Thouther is all about being on the offensive. Thanks to his powerful Bakuseiha fireball, Thouther's mixups are perhaps the most devastating in the game. This coupled with his high star-removing ability can make him seem truly be unstoppable when he is on a roll. On the other hand however, his defense is without a doubt the worst in the game, on par with Mamiya - he has a Guard Gauge against all characters, no reliable reversal, and very low health.

For these reasons Thouther is considered a "one chance" character and sometimes has trouble achieving a stable win rate. While easy to pick up his basic attack patterns and combos, the difficulty of his more advanced techniques coupled with the amount of work required to be able to win consistently can make Thouther a very frustrating character to play.

Pros Cons
  • Great mixups with his Bakuseiha fireball
  • Multiple very fast normals
  • Good star taking capabilities
  • Unblockable setups with his Speed Up super
  • Guard Crush bar against every other character
  • Incredibly low health
  • Short normals
  • Unreliable 100% combos
