Max 2



  • cl.A/B/C/D are all cancellable
  • cl.A/B chain into themselves and each other


  • s.A is cancellable
  • s.B is Kensou's furthest reaching normal and a decent hop killer
  • s.C hits twice and is cancellable on the 2nd hit. It will connect both hits from a pretty far distance
  • s.D is slow, but a decent anticipatory anti-air


  • cr.A/C are cancellable
  • cr,A/B chain into themselves and each other.


  • j.A/D are very solid jump in/combo starters
  • j.B crosses up on standing opponents, but misses frequently on crouching ones
  • Kensou lacks a solid crossup normal, but j.D acts as a fake crossup til the opponent understand there is nearly no risk of being crossed up.
  • poor jump normals are mildly augmented by Dragon Tear special


  • s.CD is whiff cancellable
  • j.CD has an interesting downward hitbox for jump ins.

Overall a pretty mediocre set of normals with some upsides.
