Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike/Yang/2021
Yang is the younger twin brother of Yun. Yang is an introverted inline skater from Hong Kong. He's skilled in Chinese Kung Fu like his brother. Yang is eager to prove himself, moreso over his brother than anyone else, and can be condescending and sharp mouthed towards his opponents. He first appears in Street Fighter III: New Generation as a palette swap of Yun, before gaining a unique moveset in SF III: 2nd Impact.
Yang has the signature Twins command grab and divekicks, while also having fast walk speed. His pressure is more straightforward than Yun's, using his Rekkas to consolidate his game plan. It can be tough to find an opening out of Yang's pressure as only the final hit of his rekkas are punishable on block. His corner carry is extremely potent, and with his command dash he can create oki situations even if he knocks his opponent far away. He lacks the capability of meterlessly converting off lights, unlike his older brother. Though he has some strong options up close, from a distance he has to commit/gamble more due to slower and punishable ranged options or getting little reward from being unable to convert.
SA1: Raishin Mahhaken
7f startup, fully invincible, single long bar super. It has the same range of Yang's st.hp, deals 465 points of damage (more than 40%), and is +1 on block(!). While that sounds nice for a low-damage character like Yang, it's a single bar, meaning you have to avoid using EX slashes if you want the super. It's also slow enough that you can easily parry it after Yang activates, making that +1 on block a moot point. The least commonly used.
SA2: Tenshin Senkyuutai
1f startup, invincible, 2 medium bar super. It deals 315 (around 25%) damage, and has Yang rolling the ground, only starting the attack once an opponent is within nearly point blank range. The super itself is pretty decent - easily combos, can be used as a reversal, allows for an optional free side switch, automatic oki, etc. The real gold of this super is the tons of meter you get, giving you more EX slashes to store in the back pocket. Generally the super of choice.
SA3: Sei-ei Enbu
Install super with a very short bar - the shortest bar in the game, in fact. The super's effects are more comparable to Rose's Soul Illusion than Custom Combos - all of Yang's moves are copied by two shadows that follow him around. Unfortunately, this super isn't very good for the most part - the main reason is that it only stores 1 EX slash. Additionally, the damage from Seiei Enbu combos scale fast, it doesn't give his normals super priority, and doesn't have much utility in neutral. So what does Yang get in return? It does give him some nice corner pressure off of repeated high/low mixups that he can convert off of easily, similar to Urien's Aegis Reflector. It also has unblockable setups. If the setup is done properly, a crossup divekick shadow (which hits high) and Yang's cr.MP or cr.LK (which hits low) hit very close together, making the string unblockable by merit of having to block both high and low at the same time. This is only effective against certain tall/wide characters like Hugo and Alex as other characters can potentially parry once and block to safety. This super radically alters Yang's game plan for better and worse, and its complexity and setups make it the preferred super to choose only in a couple of matchups and only once you have a good handle on his setups.

|3S Frame Data Glossary|
How many frames a move remains active (can hurt opponents) for. Consecutive sets of active frames on a multi-hit move are separated by an asterisk (ex: 3*5). If there is a gap between sets of active frames, the gap is denoted by a number in parentheses (ex: 2(4)2)
Attack level is L for low attacks (must be blocked crouching), H is for High attacks (which can be blocked high or low) and M for overhead (must be blocked standing). T is for throw attacks (which cannot be blocked).
Available cancel options.
Attack damage on hit in life points. Notation may denote multi-hit or "sweet spot" damage values on certain frames.
These are frame advantage values when the attack hits or is blocked. If the number is positive, then the move will end before the defender can act again. If the number is negative, the defender will be able to act before the attacker and maybe even punish. D refers to knockdown on hit.
"Cr. Hit" is an additional frame advantage value denoting if the advantage on hit changes when the defender is being hit while crouching.
Almost all normal attacks can be canceled into a special or a multi-button command within three frames of startup. During that time, some attacks will shift position forward or backward and affect the reach of the special or command accordingly. This is denoted in pixels of range. There are a handful of moves in the game that can be kara-canceled after this initial window and will be denoted as a late kara-cancel.
A combo that is performed by inputting the second move after the first move has completely recovered (as opposed to cancelling the first move's animation). In 3S, the final frame of a move's hitstun allows a character to block a normal or special move, as well as some projectile supers. Therefore, an attack's frame advantage must be 2 frames greater than the followup move's startup in order to link. Ex: a +6 normal can link into a 4f normal/special, or a 5f super.
This field will show a value of A if the attack can be parried standing or crouching, H if it must be parried standing or L if it must be parried crouching.
How many frames it takes for a move to finish after it's been active.
How many frames it takes before the move becomes 'active' or has a hitbox. 3S uses classic startup notation, which does not include the first active frame. A move with 3 startup becomes active on frame 4.
Amount of stun added to the opponent's stun bar on hit.
Range in pixels from the center of the character to the center of the opponent which allows a grab to connect.
