Street Fighter 6/Guile

From SuperCombo Wiki


Introduction

A US Air Force pilot who fights for his country, Guile succeeded in dismantling Shadaloo and avenging his friend Charlie. He enjoys living the family man life, but new battlefields await him.

Ever since his debut in 1991, Guile has been defined by his incredible projectile zoning and strong midrange presence. As the archetypal projectile zoner, Guile specializes in pestering the opponent with a barrage of projectiles before analyzing their next move and punishing accordingly.

The defining move for Guile is Sonic Boom. Easily the best projectile in the game, Sonic Boom does everything a fireball should do and more. It can be fired at variable speeds, can be used as a shield to protect Guile as he moves forward, has incredibly fast recovery, and even comes with a unique just frame version for higher speed and better damage. Guile's gameplan revolves entirely around throwing out Sonic Boom and observing what the opponent does in response. If they eat it, throw another one. If they block it, throw another one to chip away at their Drive Gauge. Opponents who begin using system mechanics like jumping or Drive Impact to get around Sonic Boom are where the games begin for Guile, as his strategy evolves into a classic fireball/uppercut gameplan.

Opponents who leap over Sonic Boom can be met with Flash Kick, a massive ascending uppercut with a huge hitbox. Opponents who choose to be patient and come close to Guile must contend with his incredible 5MK, 2MK, and 5HP. Guile also has a huge selection of excellent command normals, such as 4HP, 4MK and 6HK, which give him great brawling potential. Guile can also use system mechanics well, with a fast overhead and good throw reward making his Drive Rush quite strong. Opponents who try to counterzone Guile with their own fireballs give him the ability to use Sonic Blade to enhance Sonic Boom and turn it into a fireball-eating machine. Simply put, there is no real situation where Guile is at explicit disadvantage, and his strong kit makes him very scary at fullscreen and midscreen. Guile is the undisputed master of fireball wars and punishing jumpins, making him a complete wall to overcome for any opponent.

Guile has no major weaknesses that affect his gameplan, but instead must deal with several important quirks. First, Guile is a charge character, meaning he must always commit to certain actions if he wants to perform them. Flash Kick is an incredible anti-air for sure, but it requires charge and thus is impossible to be performed on reaction akin to Ryu's Shoryuken. However, Guile's 2HP gets the job done just as well, with far less reward as a tradeoff. Similarly, Guile's gameplan is highly consistent and variable, but lacks any major gimmicks to challenge wary opponents. While at low levels Guile is capable of steamrolling impatient opponents who don't understand him, high level Guiles must be very patient and equipped with nerves of steel. Lastly, Guile has some of the longest and highest execution (though rarely necessary) optimal combos in the game. Still, none of these quirks dramatically affect Guile in any negative way, making him into a very strong character overall. If you love projectile zoning, value versatility, and want a character who can punish risky plays without peer, sharpen your mind to a sonic edge with Guile.


Pick if you like: Avoid if you dislike:
  • The best fireball zoning in the entire game, coupled with one of the best anti-air specials in the game
  • Strong pokes to enforce yourself with alongside incredible anti-air buttons
  • Good pressure and brawling potential with an emphasis on draining Drive Gauge
  • A simple, clean, and no-frills playstyle that rewards meticulous decision making
  • Being a full on charge character, restricting your playstyle and inputs if you aren't holding down back
  • Pokes that aren't cancelable into Drive Rush or specials
  • Playing patient, sometimes extremely so

🟥 (Red): Attack hitbox

🟩 (Green): Vulnerable hurtbox that can be hit by strikes/projectiles

  • If a move's hitbox and hurtbox overlap, the colors blend to appear orange

🟦 (Blue): Vulnerable throw hurtbox

  • Will be thrown if Pink throw hitbox touches Blue throw hurtbox


Active

How many frames a move remains active (can hurt opponents) for. For projectiles with a maximum active period, a value may be listed in [brackets], but this number is not factored into the move's total frame count.

  • For multi-hit moves with no gaps between the active hitboxes, active frames are listed as X,Y (or sometimes X*Y)
  • For multi-hit moves with gaps between hits, active frames are listed as X(n)Y where n = the frame gap between hitboxes.


Cancel

Available options for canceling one move into another move.

  • "Chn": Chain cancel (Light normals; specific chain options listed in Description)
  • "TC": Target Combo
  • "Sp": Special move
  • "SA": Super Art (if a number is listed, refers only to that specific Super; SA3 = Lv.3 Super Art)
  • "Jmp": Jump cancel (usually on hit only, if applicable)
  • "SS": Serenity Stream (Chun-Li's stance)
    • If one hit of a multi-hit attack is cancelable, this can be indicated with (1st), (2nd), etc.
    • Occasionally, a move can be canceled only into a specific follow-up (e.g. Dee Jay [4]6P > 22PP); this can be indicated by listing the move input in the Cancel field, or with an asterisk that is explained in the move notes (Sp*)


Cancel Hitconfirm windows

Hitconfirm reaction windows into Special Moves, Target Combos, and Super Arts.

  • Refers to the amount of time (in frames) you have to cancel one attack into another attack on reaction
    • e.g. most cancelable 2MKs have a 13 frame window to cancel into a Special/Super on reaction, making them nearly impossible to hitconfirm
  • Counts from the first frame the attack connects until the final cancelable frame
    • Visual effects like hitsparks and HP drain do not actually occur until frame 2; the first frame is still counted to keep the numbers consistent with previous games, and because it is technically possible to start reacting to the character's reeling animation on frame 1
  • If a Target Combo is cancelable into another attack, the hitconfirm window will include the entire sequence starting from the first hit
    • If there is a frame gap on block between hits of the TC, the hitconfirm window may also be included for just the followup hit
    • Some sequences like Ken's 5MP~HP TC may have a range of values listed (43f~47f). In this example, inputting 5MP~HP at its usual timing gives a 43f hitconfirm into a Special/Super. Delaying the chain into HP gives more total time for the final hitconfirm.
Damage

Attack damage on hit. Multi-hit moves may have the damage listed for individual hits as X,Y (or sometimes X*Y). Sometimes a move's damage changes depending on which active frame connects, or on cinematic vs. non-cinematic hits; in this case, multiple values may be listed, and it will be clarified in the move description.


Guard

Refers to the direction an attack must be blocked. L is for Low attacks (must be blocked crouching), H is for High attacks/overheads (must be blocked standing), LH is for attacks that can be blocked crouching or standing. T is for Throw attacks which cannot be blocked.


Juggles

When a character is put into an Air Knockdown state, it is often possible to follow up with a Juggle attack before they hit the ground. In the simplest terms, there are 2 main juggle states:

  • Free Juggle: any attack can juggle, causing an Air Reset or an Air Knockdown
  • Limited Juggle: only specific attacks with juggle potential may juggle


The following is a more detailed overview of the SF6 juggle system:

Juggle Count (JC): The status of the character being juggled. A high JC limits which attacks can work in juggles.

  • JC0: free juggle state - any attack that can hit an airborne opponent will work
  • JC1+: limited juggle state - juggle only works if the attack's Juggle Limit ≥ defender's Juggle Count

Juggle Start (JS): When starting a juggle, the opponent's JC will be set to this value. May be different vs. standing and airborne opponents.

  • Attack with Juggle Start value of 3 will put opponent at JC3, so only attacks with Juggle Limit value ≥ 3 can follow up

Juggle Increase (JI): When opponent is already in a juggle state, attacks will increase the opponent's JC by this amount.

  • Airborne opponent at JC1 followed by attack with Juggle Increase value of 3 will set opponent to JC4

Juggle Limit (JL): Property of an attack hitbox that determines whether it connects on a juggled opponent. The JL must be ≥ the opponent's JC to hit successfully.

  • An uppercut with a JL value of 5 will connect on an opponent at JC5 or below, but will whiff on JC6 opponent
  • Most normals have a JL value of 0, meaning they only work in Free Juggle (JC0) states
  • Some multi-hit attacks have different JL values on each hit, so a 3-hit move may only hit twice in juggles

An example to tie everything together:

  • An attack (JS3) launches opponent into the air (Opponent now at JC3)
  • Followed up with an attack (JI2/JL4); it connects, because JL4 ≥ JC3 (Opponent now at JC5)
  • Attempts to juggle again with same attack (JL4), but whiffs because JL4 < JC5 (Opponent hits the ground)

Drive Rush notes:

  • DR normals have a Juggle Start/Increase value of 0
  • DR normals have +3 added to their usual Juggle Limit
On Hit/Block

These are frame advantage values when the attack hits or is blocked. If the number is positive, then the move will recover 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. KD refers to knockdown on hit, and the listed KD Advantage refers to how many frames the attacker can act before the defender finishes their wakeup animation.

  • Note that generally, there is an extra +2 hit advantage on Counterhits and +4 hit advantage on Punish Counters (exceptions are noted in the description).


Recovery

How many frames it takes for a move to finish after the active frames have finished. For projectiles, recovery is considered to begin after the first active frame.

  • Moves with different recovery values on hit/block/whiff may have multiple values listed like X(Y), with specific details listed in the description.


Startup

How many frames it takes before the move becomes 'active' or have a hit box. The last startup frame and the first active frame are the same frame, meaning all values are written as Startup + 1.

  • Moves with multiple relevant startup values may be listed as X(Y); for example, a move that hits airborne first before hitting grounded opponents, or a 2-hit move where the first hit whiffs at some ranges.

  • Cancel Hitconfirm Window: 13f
  • SA2 Cancel Advantage: +7 oH / +1 oB
  • Applies 10% damage scaling to next hit when beginning a combo (100/90/80...)


Slightly longer range than 2LP, making it useful to end a 3-hit light confirm. Other than that, 2LP is generally better in every relevant way (faster startup, better advantage, faster chains against Drive Impact). Notably, 5LP cannot link to 5LK for max range light combos.

  • SA2 Cancel Advantage: +17 oH / +11 oB


At +6, 5MP is Guile's primary combo starter with a natural link into 2MP. It is even on block, so followups are likely to trade unless performed out of Drive Rush. Guile can also chain into 4HP as a Target Combo, which itself can be special canceled.

  • SA2 Cancel Advantage: +18 oH / +13 oB


Relatively fast for a heavy button and fully cancelable, making it useful in Counter-hit and Punish Counter combos. The Punish Counter stagger effect makes 5HP useful in whiff punishes as well.

  • SA2 Cancel Advantage: +10 oH / +6 oB
  • Applies 10% damage scaling to next hit when beginning a combo (100/90/80...)


5LK has great range for a light button, but due to the nature of Guile's charge moveset it can be difficult to use. Holding back while inputting LK results in Bazooka Knee, making the timing difficult for cancels into Sonic Boom or Super. And because it's a standing normal, the timing is also strict for inputting Somersault Kick.

5MK is a fast poke with lots of active frames. It also has a surprisingly good anti-air hitbox, especially at mid-long ranges. It complements Guile's zoning game perfectly as a low-risk option to keep opponents at bay.

  • SA2 Cancel Advantage: +20 oH / +13 oB


Guile takes a big step forward, giving this button great range. 5HK can be reaction canceled into Super, or just buffered into SA2 for followup pressure. Despite being -4, it is rarely punishable due to pushback.

  • SA2 Cancel Advantage: +9 oH / +2 oB
  • Applies 10% damage scaling to next hit when beginning a combo (100/90/80...)


The more useful of Guile's light punches. Fast startup low chain pushback makes it good for confirms; 2LP x2 can chain into 5LP if starting point blank, or link into 5LK for a more difficult combo ender. The faster chain speed makes this Guile's best light normal against Drive Impact armor.

  • SA2 Cancel Advantage: +13 oH / +7 oB


2MP is an important combo filler, linking from 5MP and from most Counter-hit conversions. It has low pushback on hit, allowing two additional light normals to combo afterward from point blank. It can chain into itself for a launching Target Combo, which gives Guile an option to build charge when too far for his main linking routes.

  • Forces stand on hit


A very solid anti-air that hits right above Guile's head when Somersault Kick is not an option. If you are following a slow Sonic Boom across the screen and the opponent neutral jumps, you can AA with Drive Rush~2HP and pick up a juggle afterward. It has no other practical use on the ground, as it is not cancelable and has poor frame advantage (making the Force Stand property useless).

    • Also applies to 2MK~6MP Target Combo


Guile's 2MK is an incredibly strong low poke with an optional Target Combo overhead followup. It can be used to safely harass opponents at midrange, and even links to 2LP at point blank. After Drive Rush, Guile can link into all his important combo buttons like 5MP, 2MP, and 5HP.

  • Counter-hit/Punish Counter: +44 HKD
  • Both hits have some juggle potential; no longer Hard Knockdown when juggled into
  • Applies 20% damage scaling to next hit when beginning a combo (100/80/70...)
  • Cancel Hitconfirm Window: 26f (PC: 29f) (TC)


Guile's 2-hit sweep is fairly strong as a whiff punish, but the slow animation and relatively poor block disadvantage makes it more easily punished than most sweeps. The second hit can hit low for a knockdown even if the first hit is blocked correctly. The first hit has a Target Combo followup into 3HK that only combos in juggles or after Punish Counter. The juggle potential allows 2HK to connect after a corner OD Sonic Boom in some circumstances; it helps to be near max 2MP range, or to combo the OD Boom from 2MP~2MP or 5MP~4HP.

The instant overhead property allows Guile to close out a round by making the opponent block a deep jump-in; as they transition to a crouch block, they will be stuck in a standing state for a few frames, allowing the j.LP to connect. This is high risk and should only ever be attempted if it is certain to end the round.

Has long range due to its great forward movement, but is relatively slow. Surprisingly useful even though it whiffs on crouching opponents, as Parry forces characters to stand and Guile's opponent will most likely be trying to Parry the Sonic Booms he throws. Due to its combination of forward movement and link to jabs on hit, it sees a lot of use in level 2 combos.

  • Has juggle potential


Knee Bazooka works well against low pokes despite not being truly airborne. It cannot be spaced to hit on the final active frame, ensuring that Guile cannot link naturally into 2LP even at perfect spacing. Very useful as an approach option out of Drive Rush due to its forward momentum, where it can more easily lead to combos on hit or pressure on block.

  • Punish Counter: KD +55 (grounded), limited juggle state (airborne)


Commonly referred to as Upside-Down Kick (UDK), this move is a great throw bait and low crush. It's quite minus on block, however, making it much riskier than it was in previous SF games—but the notably high pushback on block helps a lot in making it safe. While the animation appears to put Guile airborne, he is fully grounded the entire time.

It can also be easily confirmed into Sonic Boom on block or Somersault on hit, allowing players to focus more on neutral rather than hitconfirms. On block, there is a 2f gap between the hits that can frame trap the opponent but loses to invincible reversals.

Gives Guile a small mixup option from his 2MK, which at -5 is slightly unsafe at closer ranges. On block, there is an interruptible 5f gap between the hits. If this button trades with a 5f light normal, it can frequently lead to a trade combo into 2MP depending on the range and hitstun of the opponent's button.

2HK does not naturally combo into the 3HK followup on grounded opponents. The most common way to land it is after the first hit of Punish Counter 2HK, which pops opponents into the air; this also allows it to work against crouching opponents. Drive Rush into 2HK also works, but this is very risky as there is no safe way to end this on block. It can also work in some juggles, like corner Drive Impact wall splat; in these scenarios, the opponent is launched high enough to juggle LK Somersault into OD Somersault.

Guile does not have a standard throw loop in the corner unless he is fighting Blanka, E. Honda, or Zangief, in which case he can walk for a frame-perfect throw loop to beat their reversal 4f normals. Drive Rush allows Guile to spend 1 bar for a true strike/throw mixup, but he cannot block a 6-frame invincible reversal during this Drive Rush attempt, which allows many characters to shut this down on reaction.

Good air-to-air option, especially against opponents trying to jump out of the corner. Guile's KD Advantage varies slightly depending on how high it connects, with a higher throw granting up to 2f better advantage (but leaving the opponent farther away). In the corner, Guile can follow it up with strike/throw oki; from a little farther away he can Drive Rush for oki instead.

After throwing the opponent back into the corner, Guile doesn't get any true strike/throw oki, but can Drive Rush to force the opponent to block a meaty normal.

Sonic Boom is an extremely strong space control tool with notably fast startup and low recovery compared to other fireballs. The speed of the projectile increases drastically with higher strength buttons; LP Boom is great to walk behind as a moving shield, and HP Boom's fast travel speed makes it hard to beat in fireball wars. While safe on block, Guile does not get frame advantage at close range like in some previous Street Fighter games. Boom is hard for most characters to punish without a hard read; even a Drive Impact timed on the first visible projectile frame would be too slow due to the armor hit freeze. Overall, the incredible frame data on this move forces opponents to deal with it cautiously rather than attempting all the gambles they're used to against standard fireballs.

All meterless Sonic Booms have a "Perfect" version that occurs when inputting 6+P together within a 3-frame window. Guile will yell "PERFECT!" when successful, causing Sonic Boom to become +4 on hit with extra damage. This is easy to do in neutral, but in special cancels the timing can be a little trickier to find. Perfect Booms are required in order to link 2LP afterward, so they are especially important for corner combos.

OD Sonic Boom is very powerful, with fast travel speed, 2 hits, and higher projectile priority. It knocks down on hit, instantly giving Guile great screen position when used in fireball battles. In the corner, he can also juggle 2HK afterward if he's not too close to the corner; it helps to space it out so that Guile's foot is hitting directly under the opponent.

Somersault is Guile's main anti-air, combo ender, and OD reversal; the range and angles it covers making it exceptional at all three. Requiring a down charge limits his ability to position himself, but it can come out consistently even when it's unclear which direction he will be facing. It pairs well with Sonic Boom and pokes like 2MK that can help hide his charge. HK Somersault has surprisingly long range, making it useful as a punish against many sweeps and similar attacks that can be hard to reach.

Like Sonic Boom, there is a meterless "Perfect" version when inputting 8+K within a 3-frame window. Guile will shout "FLASH KICK!" instead of "Somersault" when this happens, but the only difference is slightly more damage. Meterless Somersault can cancel into SA3 by inputting the move as [1]9K, followed by a quick 46+K to finish the motion. In some juggles or anti-air situations, LK Somersault can launch high enough to follow up with another Somersault or Super.

Guile throws out an almost stationary projectile; higher strength versions are slower but last much longer ([] refers to the stationary projectile's active time). Inputting 6P or 6PP immediately afterwards will throw a Sonic Boom of the corresponding strength (and can still become a Perfect Boom with proper input timing). If the Sonic Boom passes through the active Sonic Blade, it becomes a more powerful Sonic Cross (this will not happen if the Blade dissipates on hit/block, or from running out of active frames). Guile can delay the Sonic Boom to make his Sonic Cross timing less predictable, but this requires the usual 45f charge time.

It's dangerous to throw a sonic blade when your opponent is close due to the move having a huge extended hurtbox on the floor during its startup/active frames, which is very vulnerable to low hitting moves like sweeps.

While the meterless versions are cancelable to SA3, there is not enough time to build charge naturally; the cancel is possible to perform if the opponent activates something like an install Super that freezes the screen while Sonic Blade is already in startup.

The powered up projectile after it passes through an active Sonic Blade; compared to Sonic Boom, a Sonic Cross does more damage, more hits, and knocks down. The speed of the meterless followup depends on which button is pressed, just like regular Sonic Boom. If the Blade dissipates, refer to Sonic Boom data. Inputting 6+P within a 3f timing window still results in a "Perfect" version that does more damage.

The OD Blade~OD Cross version costs 4 Drive bars total (2 Drive for each part); the other two OD versions (OD Blade~Cross or Blade~OD Cross) only cost 2 Drive bars. The 4-bar version is too expensive to use often in neutral, but the Wall Splat gives great damage and positioning if you can reliably land it.

Sonic Hurricane can be used effectively against projectiles, completely dissipating any other non-Super projectile; however, it doesn't have projectile invincibility, so Guile can get hit out of startup if not spaced out properly. The HP version is mostly used as a combo tool, as it launches the opponent upward into a limited juggle state. Note that the HP version is not invincible at all, so it should not be used as a reversal.

Guile's install Super allows him to access his Sonic Break projectile. It is also great for getting frame advantage from cancelable moves like 5HK and OD Sonic Boom. The Super freeze lets Guile build charge for his followup combo if applicable. In fireball wars, Guile becomes nearly unbeatable when this Super is active.

Only available after Solid Puncher is activated; each Sonic Break drains the 1500f timer by 200f. The followup versions work after Sonic Boom or Sonic Cross. Guile does not build any additional Super meter from connecting a Break while his install timer is active, but he will build some if it connects after the timer has expired. It is possible to create gaps in the projectile blockstrings by mixing between fast and slow Sonic Breaks; this will also depend on the distance from the opponent. Some of the highest execution combos in the game are performed with the manual timing of Booms with this move, though they are rarely ever necessary to learn or perform.

Guile's Level 3 Super gives a cinematic cutscene on a normal hit, but if it connects late in its active frames (such as an early anti-air) it will skip the cutscene. This results in lower damage and less depletion of the opponent's Drive gauge. It can be easily canceled from Sonic Boom on reaction, and canceled from Somersault Kick in combos or after a late anti-air. To perform this cancel, input the Somersault as [1]7K to maintain back charge, then quickly transition to 646K to finish the Super motion.
