Street Fighter 6/Jamie

From SuperCombo Wiki


Introduction

This self-styled Chinatown peacekeeper aspires to the example set by Yun and Yang, the Twin Dragons. An expert dancer, Jamie places justice and friendship above all else, defending his town with martial skill.

Jamie is a close-range fighter that specializes in poking, footsies, and harassment, with quick normals that he can use once he's in. He also benefits from a powerup system that allows his damage potential and flexibility to snowball the more chances he gets to power up.

Jamie's key mechanic is based on taking drinks. By using The Devil Inside, the Freeflow Kicks ending to his Freeflow Strikes special move, or certain target combos, Jamie can increase his Drink Level, up to a maximum of 4. Each time he drinks, his damage increases, bringing him to standard damage at Drink Lv. 2 and putting him above it at Drink Lv. 3 and higher. He also unlocks more target combos and special moves at specific Drink Levels, gradually opening up the complexity of his moveset and increasing his flexibility significantly; his most notable special move unlocks, in ascending order from Drink Lv. 1 to 4, are his aerial special move Luminous Dive Kick, his anti-projectile and super cancel bridge Bakkai, the command throw Tenshin, and the super-cancelable followup to his advancing move Swagger Step, the Swagger Hermit Punch. Jamie can also temporarily boost himself to Drink Lv. 4 (if he isn't already there) by using his Lv. 2 Super Art, The Devil's Song; if he already has 4 drinks, it instead becomes a tool to quickly replenish Drive Gauge and lets him keep up the pressure.

As far as his selection of normals and specials go, Jamie has 5MK, 2MK, and 5HK as strong cancelable pokes, as well as a grounded overhead in 6MK. He can use these moves, as well as careful uses of Freeflow Strikes and Swagger Step, to pester the opponent at close and mid range until they make a mistake. He also has 2HP and Arrow Kick as anti-air options, with Overdrive Arrow Kick explicitly serving as a reversal against aggressive opponents. Successful hits with sweep, Freeflow Strikes, Punish Counters, or any moves that knock the opponent down and away will give Jamie more time to drink without fear of repercussion, especially against opponents that aren't able to establish strong enough ranged pressure to stop Jamie from drinking when he's farther away from them.

In exchange for how powerful drinks make Jamie, though, it is no exaggeration to say that his gameplan is very much reliant on getting them, even if he doesn't make it to Drink Lv. 4 in a given round. Without drinks, Jamie lacks a lot of his most powerful tools, in addition to missing out on damage; it becomes an uphill battle to keep up unless he's gotten a few sips in, even with The Devil's Song acting as a Hail Mary option to close the gap in emergencies. It is also worth noting that Jamie's Drink Level does not carry over between rounds, meaning that he has to be prepared to get set up all over again, but once he gets going, he's a real menace. If you're looking for a bit of breaking and swaying alongside an infighter that only gets stronger when he's loaded up, then Jamie is your man.


Pick if you like: Avoid if you dislike:
  • Nuanced and rewarding decision making focused around an unlock mechanic
  • Pestering and rushing down opponents at close and close-mid range with strong poking normals and forward-moving specials
  • Gaining access to a wide variety of tools and options over time
  • Forcing the opponent to approach you
  • Needing to choose between unlocking new options and maintaining pressure after a combo
  • Not having access to all of your options at the start of each round
  • Lack of projectiles

Frame Data Glossary - SF6
Hitbox Images

🟥 (Red): Attack hitbox

  • Appears pink for Throw hitboxes

🟩 (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.

Overshadowed by 2LP and 5LK, this normal doesn't see much use until Jamie has a drink. The frame data of this normal gets worse above Drink Lv.1 but makes up for it in other ways.

  • Applies 10% damage scaling to next hit when beginning a combo (100/90/80...)


At Drink Lv.1 and above, 5LP becomes Jamie's longest range light normal and has a powerful Target Combo cancel into LK~MP, which allows for very strong confirms from light normals.

Jamie's only plus on block normal. Despite this, it is often awkward to use for pressure as it leaves Jamie outside of normal throw range. This normal is best used in combos as after Drive Rush it will link into 2HP and after Drink Lv.3+ when a command grab can function as a tick throw afterwards.

Drive Rush > 5MP functions as an unmashable strike/throw mixup with 63214K unlocked at Drink Lv.3+.

  • Damage DL0-DL4: 810/855/900/945/990
  • Counter-hit/Punish Counter bonus frame advantage carries over to all 3 hits
  • High juggle potential; final 2 hits maintain juggle state and can allow a follow-up juggle
  • Cancel Hitconfirm Window: 18f
  • SA2 cancel advantage: +11 oH / +5 oB
  • Drink cancel advantage: -33 oH / -39 oB


A button notable in beating Drive Impact with its 3 hits, and being incredibly hard to interrupt as the first hit starts up in 5 frames. This is especially useful off of a Drive Rush, with 5HP > Drive Rush giving strong confirm routes, and Drive Rush into 5HP giving an easily confirmable follow-up link. In juggles where the last hit connects, it can be used to add free damage since it no longer requires a cancel. It's also pretty deceptive if you cancel the first two hits into Drive Impact yourself.

While Jamie's 3-hit 5HP has some unique and interesting properties, there are some downsides to this normal's design. The first 2 hits have finicky range and low damage, but are the only ones that can be canceled. In most combos it is strictly worse than 5LK, which has identical startup, longer range and higher cancel damage. The extra hitstun allows 5HP to cancel into 236MP or 214LP, but these are not important combo routes. From longer ranges where only the 3rd hit connects, 5HP is functionally a weak 12f non-cancelable poke; 5MK, 2MK, and 5HK are stronger in this context.

  • Drink cancel advantage: -35 oH / -39 oB
  • Applies 10% damage scaling to next hit when beginning a combo (100/90/80...)


Jamie's 5LK can be chained into, a property not commonly seen in 5LKs. It has quite good range for a chainable light, making it useful in light confirms and combos, all while still being a solid footsies 5LK. It has the unique ability to chain into itself infinitely on whiff, allowing Jamie to "dance" with the animation. Jamie shifts forward during the 5LK animation, so chaining out of it at the earliest timing will act as a sort of "kara-cancel" to keep him closer to the opponent.

5LK can combo into LP or OD Freeflow Strikes, any Arrow Kick, or Super. Slower specials like Bakkai or Swagger Step (both of which are far stronger in Super cancels) require stronger combo routes.

  • Cancel Hitconfirm Window: 15f
  • SA2 cancel advantage: +14 oH / +10 oB
  • Drink cancel advantage: -30 oH / -34 oB


5MK is a solid mid-range poke that can be buffered into specials to score a knockdown. Compared to 2MK, it is 3f slower but hits from slightly longer range and is slightly less whiff punishable.

  • Puts airborne opponents into limited juggle state
  • Cancel Hitconfirm Window: 17f (PC: 29f)
  • SA2 cancel advantage: +17 oH (PC: KD +87)) / +11 oB
  • Drink cancel advantage: -27 oH (PC: KD +43) / -33 oB


While quite slow, 5HK has solid range due to its forward movement, making it a real threat in neutral. The long recovery on this move makes it very risky to whiff in neutral, but on block the pushback usually keeps it safe even at -5. The hitbox is quite low to the ground, making it worthless as an anti-air; the juggle properties vs. airborne only allow Jamie to safely cancel into a special when hitting the opponent's early jump frames. The crumple state from Punish Counter causes the opponent to fall backwards, making the follow-ups a bit more limited compared to the corner.

Jamie's only 4f startup normal, making it useful in certain punishes and for pressure strings. This is the only chainable light normal that works well against Drive Impact, but the chain speed is below average, making it more susceptible to a Punish Counter.

  • Drink cancel advantage: -32 oH / -35 oB


A standard cancelable 6f medium button. Jamie can't link into it without Drive Rush, Counter-hit, or Punish Counter bonus advantage, and at only +3 he also needs one of these to link out of it. Very non-committal in neutral when buffered as a counterpoke.

Works fairly well as an anti-air due to its vertical reach and large number of active frames. Does not have a useful cancel when used as an anti-air, as only the early grounded frames are cancelable.

Jamie's 2MK is relatively fast with decent range, and the high pushback makes it safe to poke with. If well-spaced, cancels into 236P are often safe, but the LP version can whiff at absolute max range.

  • Counter-hit/Punish Counter: +49 HKD
  • Has high juggle potential; no longer HKD when juggled into
  • Cancel Hitconfirm Window: 33f (PC: 43f) (TC)


This 2-hit sweep is a low on both hits and has slightly more range on the 2nd hit. It's fairly easy to punish on block, so should not be thrown out randomly very often. 2HK has a lot of juggle potential, and leads to a Target Combo follow-up into HK that is great for increasing his Drink Level without sacrificing corner oki.

  • Can hit Cross-up; can hit as fuzzy Instant Overhead


As a cross-up, j.LP is far inferior to j.MK. The instant overhead property allows Jamie 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.

  • Cancels into j.214K Divekick (DL1+, forward jump only); cancel can be delayed significantly (up to 24f)


The knockdown makes it useful as an air-to-air. The hitbox reaches quite high above Jamie, so it will whiff if you try to delay it too long in juggle combos. The cancel into j.214K only works against airborne opponents, as Jamie will be too low to the ground against standing characters.

As an air-to-air, j.HK hits twice; if only the first hit connects, or on a counter-hit, Jamie can land and follow up with a grounded juggle. When used mid-juggle (like after anti-air 2KK), the first hit will whiff and the second hit causes the air juggle.

Against grounded opponents, only one hit will connect, dealing less damage than a medium air normal. The long gap in active frames can also make it difficult to time properly. The hitbox is not particularly good against anti-airs, so it's usually better to stick with j.HP for that purpose.

Tensei Kick is an anti-air launcher that's stricter to land but higher reward than a DP. The jump cancel will always jump forward regardless of which direction is held, and it cannot cancel to a grounded special move during prejump frames.

From a drive rush canceled normal on hit it's possible to link into this and do j.HK 2HK~K~P for a combo with decent wall carry and a drink while still being +4
At DL1 or higher, Jamie can anti-air with 2KK into j.MP > j.214KK, then land and juggle his 2HK~K~P Target Combo for a free Drink Level.

A hopping overhead that uniquely low crushes in its late frames and can be spaced/meatied to hit later in its active frames, resulting in better frame advantage. When used out of Drive Rush, Jamie can link light normals or 5HP afterward.

At DL2 and above, 6MK has more range and a Target Combo follow-up (6MK~MK~P) for a knockdown and an optional Drink level increase.

Hermit's Elbow pulls back during startup, making it a useful shimmy tool in tick throw situations. If you successfully bait the opponent's throw and land a Punish Counter, it becomes +5 and can link into 5LK or 5HP. At its max possible range, it can become +4 as a meaty and link into 2LP without a Counter-hit. The super cancel window is also quite lenient, allowing for high damage confirms.

At Drink Lv.3, 4HP gains a Target Combo follow-up into HP. This TC will only combo if the 4HP hits meaty or with extra frame advantage from Counter-hit. In order to confirm the TC as late as possible on reaction, a Punish Counter, Drive Rush start, or final-frame meaty timing is required. However, Jamie gets more damage by simply linking 5LP~LK~MP, since the 4HP becomes +5 in these scenarios. Note that due to increased pushback, the DL3 version can no longer link to 5HP even at +5.

A long range stepkick that can be confirmed into a Super on hit. You cannot space it to connect meaty at max range, so the only follow-up links require Counter-hit, Punish Counter, or Drive Rush (which travels nearly full screen).

At Drink Lv.4, the move gains extra range and some new Target Combo follow-ups. The TC requires a Counter-hit to combo, but the timing is very lenient to react to this. Even if the confirm is missed, the TC follow-ups are cancelable themselves, allowing Jamie to end with a safe option like 236PP even on a failed hitconfirm.

Jamie's 2-hit 2HK gives plenty of time to confirm the Target Combo follow-up afterward on hit, though 2HK is unsafe on block regardless. Jamie gets no midscreen oki if the opponent back rises, so the Drink ender is generally the best option. In the corner, Jamie can Drink and still push a mixup at +3. This TC has high juggle potential, and even gains slightly more KD advantage when juggled into.

Unlike many Drink activations, going from DL3 to DL4 does not grant Jamie any additional advantage on hit or block.

Since 5LP loses much of its frame advantage at Drink Lv.1 and above, this Target Combo is the primary way to convert jab into damage. The MP ender can combo into 236LP/MP/PP, 214LP, 236LK, 623K, or Super. The only safe enders after committing to the TC follow-up are 236PP and SA2. If the opponent tries to punish the TC on block, Jamie can frame trap any non-invincible reversal with 236LP or the much safer 236PP.

Confirming this TC directly from 6MK is strict, but possible with good reactions. It's hard to chase down the opponent for midscreen oki, so ending with a Drink is usually worthwhile.

In the corner, ending with a Drink puts Jamie at -1, making it a little risky; if going from DL3 to DL4, he instead gets slight KD advantage to apply pressure. Jamie can apply much better corner pressure by skipping the drink. 6MK~MK sets up the perfect timing for a meaty 214HP to become +2 on block while remaining safe against Drive Impact. Many opponents will instinctively press a button here, giving Jamie a free Counter-hit.

This Target Combo sequence is most useful when performing 4HP as a shimmy to bait a throw tech, since it guarantees a Punish Counter if successful. If the 2nd hit of the Target Combo begins the combo, it is possible to confirm it directly into this ender. While the HP follow-up is unsafe, it can be used to frame trap an opponent that predictably hits buttons after blocking 4HP. If the final HK is performed on block, the opponent can interrupt with any attack 8f or faster for a full punish, so it cannot be used to frame trap an opponent in the same way.

Every part of this Target Combo can be input on hit, block, or whiff from 6HK. The 4HK causes Jamie to stumble away from the opponent, and the timing of Jamie's P input changes which follow-up occurs. All listed startups include the 6HK plus the minimum/maximum delay before hitting P during the Sway animation. The close Headbutt follow-up is fairly easy to confirm on Counter-hit or Punish Counter 6HK. The minimum gap between 6HK and Headbutt is 1f on normal hit, 7f on block, making it a poor frame trap option. The Spinning Fists cannot be comboed into, but are useful for stopping an opponent from chasing down the Sway. The Drink causes Jamie to continue stumbling backwards, making it hard to chase down without a projectile. This does give up a lot of ground, but it may be worth the Drive build depending on the circumstances.

Freeflow Strikes (or "Rekkas") are forward-moving strikes that can be confirmed into optional follow-ups. Higher strength versions move farther but have slower startup, with the OD version gaining both speed and longer range. At Drink Lv.0 to Lv.3, each Rekka is a single hit, and only the first part of the sequence can cancel into Super. If well-spaced, the first meterless Freeflow Strike is often safe; the LP version is usually the best for this since it has less forward movement, but this can also cause it to whiff in max range cancels. The OD version is always safe.

When attempting to confirm into the 6P or 6K follow-ups on hit, it's important to note that the follow-up speed depends on the strength of the first Rekka. Delaying the confirm too long, especially on HP Rekka, can cause the follow-up to come out without comboing. The 6K follow-up is slightly slower than 6P, which also makes the confirm slightly stricter. OD Rekka canceled into SA2 is a great option on hit or block, leading to great combos or block pressure from a mid-range poke.

This move and its follow-ups can be used in juggles, but they can be very inconsistent depending on the screen position and opponent's juggle height; OD Rekkas are the most consistent overall, and the corner makes things easier as well.

At max Drink Level, Freeflow Strikes becomes a 2-hit attack, gaining additional damage and making it much easier to confirm follow-ups or Super. It also becomes safe on block for all versions, giving Jamie a great confirmable pressure tool from mid-range. In some juggle routes, it becomes harder to combo into the 6K follow-ups due to the extra pushback, so the 6P follow-ups are recommended for more consistency.

The Punch follow-ups are the preferred route for damage, juggles, and oki; they can be performed on hit, block, or whiff. The LP, MP, and OD Rekka starters require a manual delay to create a blockstring gap, while HP Rekka can automatically frame trap with a 3f gap at the fastest timing. While risky, this frame trap can be used against an opponent that tries to punish your first Rekka on block. On hit, stopping after the first 6P puts Jamie at a slight disadvantage; an unaware opponent may be caught off guard with a quick throw reset, but attempting this is sacrificing guaranteed damage and a knockdown.

The cancel hitconfirm window applies to the 6P hit only and does not include the first 236P hit. In the startup column, [] refers to the total startup time for 236P~6P when the first Rekka whiffs, which can be useful for certain long-range punishes.

The Punch follow-ups are the preferred route for damage, juggles, and oki; they can be performed on hit, block, or whiff. Like the initial Rekka, this follow-up is 2 hits when at max Drink Level. All strengths of Rekka lead to the same 2-7f gap between hits on block, which can be used to frame trap the opponent. However, this frame gap is not very useful for two reasons: the initial Rekka is safe (meaning the opponent is less likely to hit a button while attempting a punish), and a Counter-hit does not give Jamie the bonus frame advantage when both hits of the follow-up connect.

The cancel hitconfirm window applies to the 6P hit only and does not include the first 236P hit. In the startup column, [] refers to the total startup time for 236P~6P when the first Rekka whiffs, which can be useful for certain long-range punishes.

The final 6P follow-up completes the Punch sequence. It can be done on hit, block, or whiff and has juggle potential. This sequence gets no oki midscreen if the opponent back rises, but it has good corner carry and is Jamie's most consistent combo ender. Like the first 6P follow-up, there is a blockstring gap between the final 2 hits that varies based on the button timing, but this is a very unsafe gimmick for beating the opponent's attempted Rekka punish.

In the startup column, [] refers to the total startup time for 236P~6P~6P when the first 2 hits of Rekka whiff at the fastest speed. In the Damage column, the first value lists the unscaled damage; () refers to the damage at 80% scaling, which is what would normally occur when starting a combo with the first Rekka.

At max Drink Level, the Rekka Punch ender does 3 hits. Other than some minor changes to the frame data and blockstring gaps, it functions the same as the DL0-DL3 versions.

The 6K follow-up gives less damage and worse oki than the 6P route, but allows Jamie to end with a Drink. It can only be performed on hit or block; the move will not come out if 236P whiffs. Unfortunately for Jamie, this means there is no way to safely space this move at max distance.

The cancel hitconfirm window only applies to the 6K hit and does not include the first 236P hit; this is only really relevant if the initial Rekka is blocked, and you attempt to frame trap into the unsafe follow-up.

The final 6K follow-up, like its predecessor, can only come out on hit or block. If successful, it levels up Jamie's Drink Level by 1. Because Rekkas are so easy to confirm into, this move is the primary way to level up. The meterless versions leave Jamie at a slight disadvantage after knockdown, making it slightly risky to use in the corner; to avoid this risk, use the OD version to give Jamie slightly more KD advantage.

The long drink animation makes the 6K ender extremely unsafe on block. The drink itself is interruptible, and any punish within the first 21f will stop Jamie's drink level from increasing (20f for the LP version). Like the other Rekka follow-ups, it is possible to frame trap the opponent if they attempt a punish. The exact blockstring gap can change depending on the button timing.

The transition from DL3 to DL4 gives Jamie much better KD advantage on the knockdown. Because of this, there is no need to use the OD version for a safe corner drink. As usual when taking a drink during DL4, Jamie restores 1 Drive bar instead of gaining a Drink Level. DL4 Jamie gets far more damage and corner carry from his Punch Rekkas, but this may be a good option if approaching Burnout; the OD version also benefits from getting an immediate 50% meter refund.

In the Damage column, the first value lists the unscaled damage; () refers to the damage at 80% scaling, which is what would normally occur when starting a combo with the first Rekka.

Swagger Step is a forward lunging palm attack that can be made safe if well-spaced. It has juggle potential and can combo on the ground, though the slow startup limits the cancel routes that are actually useful. Since Rekka can only cancel the first hit into Super, Swagger Step is the better move for high damage Super cancels. Note that the Super confirm window is quite lenient, but becomes more strict when spaced to hit on later active frames (17f window at minimum).

At Drink Lv.4, Jamie gains an additional 6P Follow-up for extra damage. This can be confirmed off a raw 214P hit, but may drop if input too late.

This follow-up to Swagger Step is only available at max Drink Level. It works in juggles or in grounded combos, adding significant damage especially when canceled into SA3. It is much more unsafe on block than the first part of Swagger Step, though it can be used as a risky frame trap if the opponent tries to punish you. The 6P can be delayed significantly, though this can cause it to drop against grounded opponents unless the Swagger Step hits meaty.

Jamie's most consistent anti-air and OD reversal. He kicks upward before falling back away from the opponent. On hit, this transitions into a leaping follow-up attack that is fully invincible during the animation. On whiff or block, Jamie does not perform the extra hit, instead standing up from his grounded position. This recovery animation can cause some attempted punishes to whiff at longer ranges, but there is plenty of time to walk or dash forward, or to use a slow ranged punish starter.

Arrow Kick works well in juggles, but in grounded combos it can be finicky near max range. It also has no ability to Super cancel, so its damage potential in punishes is limited. It gives Jamie great oki on hit and the follow-up animation provides some nice corner carry as well. In the corner, the LK version sets up a safejump.

At Drink Lv.1, Jamie unlocks a divekick that can be used out of forward jumps. It can be done very low to the ground with a Tiger Knee input (214~9K), and connecting low on the opponents legs gives better advantage on block or on knockdown; he can even juggle after meterless divekick when spaced well enough. The angle of the meterless divekick changes depending on which button is pressed, with LK being short and steep while HK travels farther. This is a useful tool not only for pressure, but for navigating around projectiles, an area in which Jamie usually struggles. It also evades throws, so it can be used as a shimmy or to punish throw loops.

Jamie drops to the ground and begins break dancing, slowly advancing toward the opponent. The slow startup limits this move's combo utility, though it can work in juggles when the situation arises. The high damage makes this great for super canceling, and with 2 bars the OD version can be made safe on block with an eternity to hitconfirm. 236LK gives Jamie a safe jump similar to 623LK in the corner (or midscreen if the opponent does not back rise).

Bakkai is ostensibly Jamie's "anti-projectile" move, though in practice it can be difficult to use like this. 236KK is fairly reliable at mid-range against shoto fireballs, and 236HK has the reach if your reactions are on point. 236LK and 236MK are harder to use because they travel a shorter distance during startup. And against strong projectiles like Guile's Sonic Boom, this move can only be done as a pure prediction, at which point you might as well just do a Drive Impact or Luminous Dive Kick instead.

Tenshin is a unique command grab that allows you to combo after landing it, reminiscent of Yun, Yang, and Fei Long's similar grab from previous games without the side switch. It doesn't have quite as good range or speed as most command grabs, but the combo utility more than makes up for these faults and greatly boosts Jamie's close range mixup game. Not only can it net the most damage of any command grab with proper use of resources, but it also allows you to loop your pressure into whatever oki is desired, something that no other command grab can do nearly as well.

After meterless Tenshin, the opponent is in a unique grounded juggle state; grounded combos work as usual, but they are considered to have a Juggle Count of 1. This can affect any juggle route that comes afterward; for example, 2MP > DR 2KK > j.HK will not combo after Tenshin, despite normally working on grounded opponents.

The first attack following Tenshin is unscaled, but any following attacks have a 40% scaling penalty applied (100-60-50-40...). Since the OD version gives more than enough time to go into SA3 as the first hit, this will lead to a completely unscaled super with devastating damage, dealing more damage than Zangief's CA if you have CA yourself. There is also an interesting situation after Punish Counter 214PP's tumbling wall splat: Jamie can combo into Tenshin after this, in which case the throw is scaled by 20% and any follow-ups immediately skip to the 40% scaling penalty.

Jamie is not point blank after the grab, but is close enough to combo into moves like 5MP, 2MP, or 5HP. While Tenshin can hit as a Counter-hit or Punish Counter, this has no effect on frame advantage (OD Tenshin does extra damage on Punish Counter only).

After a stun, Jamie can use Tenshin to reset the opponent without resetting their drive gauge. If the opponent is stunned and Jamie is at drink level 1, he can drink up to drink level 3, use EX Tenshin, get his last drink and still have enough frame advantage to pressure the opponents wake up. Here is a video going over the tech in more detail.

Sometimes, Jamie will say a naughty word when he whiffs the grab. Be careful when playing Jamie with small children nearby.

  • Ends in a Drink in exchange for reduced Damage and KD Advantage


A more powerful version of Jamie's Bakkai special, this super has good range and locks the opponent into the full break dancing animation on hit. This Super is extremely unsafe on block so should always be carefully hitconfirmed. A little over halfway through the animation, there is a gap on block; the opponent can hit Jamie out of this to prevent additional Drive/Chip damage, but a mistimed button can also result in the opponent getting hit by the second half of the Super.

During the Super animation, you can hold Down to increase your Drink Level by 1, at the cost of some damage and knockdown advantage. If doing this on block, the opponent can easily interrupt Jamie before he gains a Drink Level, and there is no longer a blockstring gap that can hit the opponent's mistimed punish.

At DL3, ending with a Drink activation changes the recovery to 93, making it -79 on block.

At DL4, ending with a Drink restores 1 bar of Drive gauge, allowing Jamie exchange some Super meter for Drive meter in his combo routes.

  • Puts Jamie at Drink Lv.4 until the install timer runs out (then returns to Drink Lv.0)
  • Jamie's damage scaling is only set to 105% rather than the usual 110% in DL4
  • Drink Lv.4 version instantly refills 3 Drive bars (no install timer)
  • Can be useful as a cancel from OD specials for safety or combo extensions


A useful install that gives Jamie access to his entire moveset without needing to slowly accumulate drinks. The Super activation itself is good for applying pressure to force a mixup, or for extending a combo. The timer lasts 15 seconds and freezes when the opponent is in hitstop or blockstop, after which Jamie returns back to Drink Level 0. This is unfortunate if Jamie had already accumulated some Drink levels, so it's important to use this time effectively to secure the win.

If Jamie is already at Drink Lv.4, he can still use this Super for its cancel properties in order to get easy frame advantage. He can also treat his Super meter as a reserve tank for his Drive gauge, restoring 3 Drive for the cost of 2 Super bars whenever he wants. There is no downside to activating, as it won't start an install timer; this means that Jamie can get right back to building more Super meter and will not revert back to Drink Level 0.

Jamie's Level 3 Super goes into a cinematic if the first hit connects, while the 2nd hit is extremely weak on its own. The cinematic hit ends by launching the opponent, reminiscent of Yun's You Hou Ultra 1 from USF4. As a result, the damage is quite low, instead relying on the follow-up juggle to make it worthwhile. The cinematic ends abruptly, so it takes practice to learn exactly when to execute the follow-up. Jamie has several options, like Dash + 5HP or Drive Rush~2HP into further juggles.

The Critical Art version lacks this ending juggle, but makes up for it with higher base damage and a cooler ending cinematic.
