Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge/Zabel (Lord Raptor)

From SuperCombo Wiki


"A good attempt, but road to the netherworld is paved with good attempts."

A charismatic young rock star who became a supernatural being when Emperor Ozom took notice of his actions and revived him for his own plains. After becoming Ozom's personal assassin he was told that if he seeks to be stronger, he would have to defeat the Darkstalkers as well as collect their souls for the Emperor. Although Lord Raptor agreed, his true plans were to destroy Ozom and to take his spot as Emperor.

Note worthy Normals

Standing LP - whiffs on crouching opponents

Standing far MK - large hitbox covering his whole, good range, excellent anti-air that cannot be ariblocked

Crouching HP - completely useless outside of chain combos

Crouching MK - good low poke

Crouching HK - long range sweep that is relatively safe on block from max range

Jumping HP - good air-to-air attack, but the legs are vulernable

Jumping LK - deep angle that's good for tick throws

Jumping MK - good air-to-air and can cross up

Jumping HK - good for pinning people down when cornered and good combo starter

Throw (close, b or f + MP or HP) - Demitri's throw has the odd trait of not being able to consistently throw in either direction. It doesn't matter which button or direction you use.

Special Moves

Alternate Strikes: Press f + LP or LK or MP or MK or HP or HK

Zabel can use command moves with foward and attack buttons, they are extended versions of his normals, and are suitable for poking and keepaway chains.

Loudness Screw: During jump, press d + K

This is a air command move for overhead pressure, its too unsafe but mades good damage, use it on crouching opponents

Death Hurricane: QCB + K (useable in air) (Guard Reversal) [ES]

Zabel twist and moves foward up at the ground version and down foward in air, ground is useful as combo ender but air version is worse than Loudness Screw.

ES version is faster makes more hits

Skull Sting: Press d, u + K (useable in air) [ES]

Zabel jumps foward and then summons a minisaw in his legs downwards, a fast move for escape or surprise your opponent and cross up crouching ones and you can follow up with a crouching chain or 2-in-1 combo of your choice.

ES version is faster and makes more hits.

Hell's Gate: HCF + K

A teleport move, had ok startup but use it randomly for escape situations

Skull Punish: Close, HCB +P [ES]

His command move mades good damage but its slow, ES version is a waste

Super Moves

Zabel stabs the chest of his opponent with a bone elbow, vacuum him and electrify it with an uppercut, its you main Super option for combo enders, but whiff crouching opponents commonly.

Its only a electrified version of his Tatsumaki clone move, but mades good damage and also had large hitbox range.

Hell Dunk: F,D,DF + 2P

A Super Command Grab, had short startup but is slower than his normal ones, anyway it had a nice animation and useful for wake up games and crouching opponents.
