JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Heritage for the Future/Kakyoin

From SuperCombo Wiki
Kakyoin-challenger.png

Noriaki Kakyoin (花京院 典明 Kakyōin Noriaki) is a core ally in Stardust Crusaders. He is the Stand master of Hierophant Green.

Initially, a Japanese student visiting Egypt, he is manipulated by DIO and sent to kill Jotaro Kujo. After being freed from DIO's influence, he decides to join Jotaro on his quest to Egypt to save Jotaro's mother and find redemption.

Kakyoin is considered to be the best character in the game, right next to Pet Shop due to having excellent offense, defense, setups, mixups, high combo potential, and supers as well as long reaching normals and pokes.

Pros Cons
  • Amazing Mobility with a Fast ground Dash and Infinite Airdashes in Stand ON
  • Nets are the single best move in the game and invalidate certain characters on their own
  • Incredibly powerful Normals in both Stand OFF and ON
  • Slim and Short Hurtbox in Stand OFF can make it hard for the opponent to hit
  • Tools that are easy to learn and abuse
  • Huge damage output, especially from Extended Tandems
  • Easy 50/50's on Okizeme which can loop into themselves
  • No Losing Matchups
  • Strong Throw that gives you Okizeme
  • Stylish Combos
  • Second Slowest Wakeup time tied with New Kakyoin
  • Struggles against Top tiers in certain close situations and will have to play lame to beat some characters
  • Banned in almost every tournament
  • You will likely never reach his skill ceiling due to expansive toolkit
  • People will call you uncool
  • I'm gonna be honest these are barely cons, he doesn't really have any
