Introduction

"Are you man enough to fight with me?" No, Mr. Guile. I don't think anyone in World Warrior is "man enough" to deal with your magic throw and handcuffs.

Guile is the first pure charge character in the Street Fighter series, meaning that all of his special moves are performed by charging in a specific direction and then moving the stick into another direction while pressing an attack button. His design makes him best suited for a defensive style. Just keep pushing your opponent back with your normals and Sonic Booms (Guile's fireball) and punish any jump-in attempts with an anti-air, usually crouching fierce or a flash kick.

Guile's debut in World Warrior was far from perfect, although you could also say he was perfect depending on how you look at it. His imperfection is due to the infamous WW Guile glitches. Guile can repeatedly throw opponents to the ground without actually throwing them (magic throw) or freeze an opponent in place (handcuffs) and maintain a health lead, only unfreezing the opponent as the timer runs out to prevent the game from soft-locking. Even without using these glitches, Guile is clearly the most powerful character in the game which is why you could say he's perfect. The flash kick deals insane amounts of damage, his jab has unusually long reach for a light punch which can allow for a 5-6 hit jab dizzy combo, and aside from Dhalsim, the other fighters have very limited options against him.

Guile is top tier and can win most matchups easily. However, I recommend learning another character as well if you plan on using Guile since mirror matches aren't possible in World Warrior and you likely won't get to pick Guile first every time.

This jab has unusually good reach. You can easily dizzy your opponent simply by rapid-firing the light punch button up close (the move will star out as the close-range version and then switch to this far-standing one as they get pushed back)

Guile's upside-down kick may have excellent reach, but you can't really take advantage of it since this command normal must be done up close. It's still a good move nonetheless, but be careful when using it. If you try to cancel into a Sonic Boom, Guile will freeze during the recovery frames of the upside-down kick, leaving you vulnerable. You can escape by charging and inputting a flash kick, but your opponent can hit you before you have time to free yourself. This glitch is fun to show off in casuals, but it's not a good idea in a serious match so just avoid cancelling this move into a Sonic Boom and you'll be fine.

Match-Ups

Vs. Ryu

When fireballs trade at close range, far hp/sweep to punish his recovery. Cr hp trade for anti air, cr mk when far away. Careful whiffing cr mk as it's a free sweep whiff punish for them. Tatsu can go through sonic booms, but he's usually unsafe on hit, flash kick or cr hp trade to punish him.

Vs. Ken

Same as Ryu.

Vs. E.Honda

Keep him out with fireballs, far hk and cr hp for anti airs, early j hk can work as well. Cr mk/sweep jumps from far.

Vs. Chun Li

A harder matchup, relatively speaking. You want to force her to block a sonic boom, then go for mixups/throws. Her air normals are hard to deal with if you have no flash kick, so try avoid that situation. Otherwise, sac throw/close mk and walk under are ok. You can fight back in neutral with cr mk, but hers is faster and has better recovery, so use sparingly.

Vs. Blanka

Similar to honda, but he has better air normals when close. Anti air sweep/cr mk can only be beat with his late j hp from far, otherwise, close mk if he's above (sac throw if you lose), jump forward back and far hp trade are also decent. Ball is safe on block, it can beat stuffed with mashed cr lp.

Vs. Zangief

Just get distance and throw fireballs. Lariat gains like no ground, and you can punish with cr mk usually. Use far hk or cr hp to beat jump attempts over fireballs.

Vs. Dhalsim

Probably the most common matchup in the game? He can slide under sonic booms when close, and his long normals are strong. Stand lk beats slides, and can punish him trying to go under. Flash kick can beat fireballs when in close range. Just try maintain a safe distance and zone him, he can do a throw loop on you with his fierce throw, so avoid him getting that close.
