Street Fighter 6/Rashid

From SuperCombo Wiki


Introduction

"The Soaring Eagle of the Desert" that fights using parkour. With the wind as his ally, he outfoxes opponents with his high mobility. Born into nobility, he's a carefree but earnest man. Loves video streaming.

Rashid is a character with a unique focus on strong mobility options and unique "air current" projectiles. These air currents modify Rashid's movement when he passes through them while jumping or performing a special, affecting the way he chooses to approach his opponent.

While Rashid has the traditional shotoclone fireball/DP combo to work with, he puts a number of unique touches on them to make them his own. His fireball Whirlwind Shot travels upwards at a diagonal angle instead of fully horizontal, and can be charged up to leave an air current. His DP Spinning Mixer meanwhile travels in many directions rather than the usual single version. The light version goes horizontally, the medium version travels diagonally up, and the heavy version goes straight upwards. As one can see, Rashid places a lot of emphasis on controlling the space directly in front of him and above him.

The reason why is that Rashid has a number of extremely powerful mobility tools once he's established control over these spaces. Rashid is unique among the cast in that he has a run which activates after he takes a forward dash. He can use 6KK to front flip across the screen, or use Arabian Skyhigh to flip through the air and come down in unique angles. Combining all of these options together, accented further with the air currents he creates, can allow Rashid unprecedented forward movement.

Once he's zoned in on you, Rashid becomes frightening to deal with as a defender. Rashid not only has a throw loop, but his light Spinning Mixer does good Drive Bar damage and is safe on block. Rashid has many ways to threaten quick mixups with 6HP or be plus on block with 2MP. Once he's gotten you launched into a combo, Rashid can layer on Arabian Cyclone during your wakeup to keep you blocking. Even worse, Arabian Cyclone can also be used to set up high/low/throw mixups. If he's got meter to spend, Rashid can also drop the powerful Ysaar onto you to force a checkmate scenario. All in all, Rashid's close-range offense is one of the strongest in the game and something he excels at.

And excel at that offense he must, as Rashid's pokes are very stubby and his footsies in general is lacking. Rashid's kit is very complex and freeform, which both acts as a boon (in that it gives him lots of tools) and a curse (in that picking the best option can be difficult). As well, while Spinning Mixer is a decent anti-air option, it is only air-invulnerable on frame 6 as opposed to the standard frame 1, which combined with his mediocre anti-air buttons makes it hard for him to reactively stuff aerial approaches. All in all, Rashid is excellent for people who want to get in and flex their offense. If you want peerless mobility, excellent close-range pressure and a wealth of style alongside it, ride the waves with Rashid.


Pick if you like: Avoid if you dislike:
  • Diverse, powerful, and plentiful mobility options, including: a run with command normal followups, forward-moving specials, crossover flips, and double-jumping air specials
  • Consistent and threatening pressure with many ways to be plus on block
  • Plentiful ways to spend resources and force mixups, including one of the most oppressive projectile supers in the game
  • Lacking fullscreen options and smaller buttons in neutral, making strong movement a must
  • A large and complex kit, which can make efficient decision making difficult
  • Anti-airs that require precise timing due to their minimal invincibility

🟥 (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.

One of Rashid's two plus on block normals. 5MP is a bit worse than 2MP in pressure due to its larger pushback, but it gives him access to a useful launching target combo instead. This button also serves as useful combo filler after a 5MK starter.

Rashid can frame trap with light normals after 5MP, but his options out of this are very limited due to his generally stubby buttons. It is a great button to use out of Drive Rush on both hit and block.

A decent counterpoke due to its hitbox, but lacking the range to compete with some of the games stronger buttons. This button is great in many Drive Rush combos, although it is too slow to combo from 2MK > Drive Rush without at least a Counter-hit advantage bonus. Rashid has several useful cancel routes like MK/OD Eagle Spike or OD Arabian Cyclone. With a Punish Counter or Drive Rush 5HP starter, you gain access to HK Eagle Spike's enormous corner carry as well.

5LK has the most hitstun of any of Rashid's light normals, allowing it to combo into 214LK. The range is a little short, so it will not combo in chains that utilize 2LK unless Rashid has Drive Rush momentum.

  • 2 extra recovery frames on whiff


One of Rashid's farthest reaching pokes, this combo starter links naturally into 5MP if close enough. Rashid's turn ends immediately on block without Drive Rush or Burnout, so it's not his go-to pressure button. At max range, 5MK it will not combo into anything, but on Counter-hit it links to itself for a little extra damage. Somewhat vulnerable to Drive Impact since it cannot cancel, but Rashid has plenty of options to discourage random DI usage.

  • Punish Counter: KD +49 Launch
  • Puts airborne opponents into limited juggle state
  • Forces Stand on hit; final 2 active frames whiff on crouching opponents
  • Extends a hurtbox 1f before active that is vulnerable to projectiles


A fairly long range heavy kick with notably low recovery and high pushback on block, making it unusually safe and difficult for the opponent to take their turn against. Great for whiff punishing due to its Punish Counter juggle state that allows a followup like MP Spinning Mixer from almost any range. It also gives a juggle off of a general airborne hit; this combined with its fairly vertical hitbox lets it be used fairly well as a slow but rewarding anti-air. The upward hitbox does not truly begin until the 6th active frame, making it function more like an 18f anti-air that requires prediction and spacing to land.

  • Chains into 5LP/2LP/2LK
  • Cancel Hitconfirm Window: 13f


Compared to 5LP, this button has worse range and startup, but compensates with less pushback and better hit advantage. The opponent is more likely to be left in throw range for a mixup between tick throw or a chained light normal. A 3-hit chain starting with 2LP can link into 5LK, which allows better combos than ending with a LP button.

  • Anti-air hitbox on frames 7-9 (cannot hit opponents behind Rashid)
  • Can whiff on crouching opponents at distance


Rashid's other plus on block normal along with 5MP. In comparison, 2MP has more active frames and less pushback, making it better as a meaty tool. It is generally worse as combo filler because it often won't connect on the first active frame, so stick with 5MP for that purpose.

The anti-air hitbox is fairly low to the ground, making it difficult to time against stronger jump-ins, and it is largely ineffective against close jumps.

  • 2 extra recovery frames on whiff
  • Applies a 20% damage scaling penalty to the next hit when used as a combo starter (100/80/70/60...)


One of Rashid's better ranged pokes, despite being a little slow on startup and recovery. It can be buffered into Supers to greatly increase its damage potential, and can even be canceled on reaction if you're fast enough.

2HP can be used as a punish starter into 5HP, but the high pushback will cause combos to drop outside of close range. Its best combo use is in Drive Rush cancels after 5MP, 5HP, or Punish Counter 2MK, providing the same link options without the finicky range issues.

  • Chains into 5LP/2LP/2LK


Rashid's 2LK is fairly standard, allowing for chains into either LP button that can be canceled for a low-damage combo. The pushback is higher than his other lights, so he won't be able to end a combo with 5LK > 214LK, but he can still get a 3-hit combo into Spinning Mixer. When used after Drive Rush, Rashid can frame trap into 5MP, which also allows a quick confirm on hit.

  • Cancel Hitconfirm Window: 13f

Rashid's farthest reaching special cancelable move. This is an integral neutral tool as it can be useful to setup drive rush or buffered special moves. The range is on the lower end when it comes to cancelable 2MKs, but it's also one of the faster ones at 7f startup. After confirming a hit into Drive Rush cancel, Rashid's best link is 5MK, 5HP. If you whiff punish with 2MK, go into 2HP, 5HP instead for extra damage.

  • Counter-hit/Punish Counter: +47 HKD
  • Has juggle potential; no longer HKD when juggled into
  • 4 extra recovery frames on block


Rashid's sweep has fairly short range and is easily punished by most characters even at max range. It is fast enough to use as an occasional whiff punish, or to punish other sweeps if the pushback allows it. It becomes a much better harassment tool against opponents in Burnout as long as they don't have a great 7f normal to punish with.

A 2-hit air normal that requires semi-precise timing to ensure both hits connect. As an air-to-air, both hits will connect properly for a knockdown. Ending a juggle with j.HP is generally a weak options, as only one hit will connect. If the first hit is stand blocked, the second hit will not hit overhead against an opponent that immediately crouch blocks.

    • 1st hit puts airborne opponents into limited juggle state and maintains existing juggle state
    • 2nd hit causes air reset when juggled into
  • Counter-hit/Punish Counter bonus advantage applies to both hits
  • Can be affected by Air Current on frames 3-10 (travels fullscreen)
  • Cancel Hitconfirm Window: 11f (1st hit only)


Rashid takes a big step forward while attacking twice. The gap between hits is quite large, so the second hit is easily interrupted if the first hit whiffs in neutral. After a whiff punish, Rashid can link into a light normal to extend the combo. This is much easier to do if there is an Air Current on the screen due to the massive range buff it receives.

The most common use for 6MP is to extend juggle combos by canceling the first hit. For example, after a corner Drive Impact wallsplat, Rashid can juggle 5HP > 214MP, then juggling into 6MP > 236HP. There are various juggles where the height or spacing can be inconsistent, and starting with 6MP simplifies the combo.

Rashid hops forward and comes down with an overhead elbow that is safe on block and somewhat hard to see. With perfect spacing or meaty timing it is possible to link naturally into a light normal, but this is very precise. The range boost from an Air Current makes 6HP a great surprise attack in neutral, especially if there is an active SA2 tornado on screen.

When used out of Drive Rush, Rashid is slightly plus on block and can link into 5MP on hit, greatly increasing his damage potential.

A hopkick with decent range that can beat many low pokes in neutral while remaining safe on block. If spaced perfectly, it can be up to +5 on hit and 0 on block even without a Drive Rush enhancement. After successfully punishing a low poke, the forward movement ensures Rashid will be in range to combo into 5MP. 6HK also works well after Drive Rush; if the opponent uses delayed jabs to stuff attempted overheads, using 6HK instead is likely to result in a counter-hit.

An air command normal that can be useful in extended juggles or to confuse grounded opponents with Rashid's various air mobility options. If the attack hits, Rashid can combo into a followup j.HP or j.HK to extend the combo. On block, Rashid can be juggled out of the air as he bounces.

Some of Rashid's most optimal juggle combos involve timing a late j.2HP to skip the bounce animation. This is incredibly strict, but gives juggle options that would otherwise be unattainable.

Aerial Shot is a good air-to-air due to its knockdown potential, allowing Rashid to pick up juggles depending on the height it connects. The hitbox is relatively high up, making it harder to use against grounded opponents without getting anti-aired. After a Drive Impact crumple, Rashid can use j.8HK to knock the opponent into the air as he descends, opening up some useful juggle routes without excessive scaling or meter use.

Rashid's Slide can be used against most standard projectiles, but will not go under low ones like Juri 236LK or Rashid 236KK; the early frames of his meterless 236K is also low to the ground. Because Rashid has to perform a forward dash and wait 20f to start the slide, it is not practical as a pure reaction counter. Like most slides, it can be made safe if spaced near max range. This also helps Rashid stay close after a side switch on hit, opening up stronger followup routes (see video examples). Hitting a cornered opponent keeps Rashid at point blank for even easier followup conversions, no Punish Counter required.

The airborne frames of Run~6K make this useful against throw tech and low pokes, granting a link to 5MP on Punish Counter. This can be especially useful against opponents who wake up with 2MK to call out your shimmy attempt. However, it's unsafe on block unless it is well-spaced (or the opponent is in Burnout), so this is an aggressive read.

If the first hit doesn't connect, the move can still cause a regular knockdown. However, it's more unsafe than the non-enhanced version due to being -5 and having lots of forward momentum.

Rashid gets excellent knockdown advantage on his forward throw, allowing for a corner throw loop that can be mixed up with a shimmy to bait the opponent's throw tech. Each throw must be manually timed, as he has too much KD Advantage after a dash to throw immediately. Remember that holding forward after a dash results in a Run, which will ruin the throw loop setup.

Spinning Mixer is a great special move due to its versatility; each version brings something unique to the table.

236LP is a good buffer from Rashid's light normals due to its safety on block. While it's not a good idea to consistently put yourself in a -3 situation, Rashid's stubby cancelable normals often don't permit him to get close enough for a proper hitconfirm. Using 5LP > 236LP to interrupt the opponent's pressure is often a good way to take back Rashid's turn, and it has the added benefit of breaking Drive Impact armor if done early enough, allowing a link into another 5LP. On hit, this move does mediocre damage and corner carry, but allows for a strike/throw mixup. If the opponent is in Burnout, 236LP is +1 on block; this allows for some limited followup pressure, but the pushback is too high for Rashid to loop this continuously.

236MP also works consistently from light hitconfirms, giving a knockdown and more corner carry than the LP version. The damage is a little lower, but in the corner Rashid can cancel his landing frames into 236PP to make it more rewarding. In certain juggles, these landing frames can also juggle into a Super. MP Mixer gives Rashid a reliable meterless pickup after Punish Counter 5HK, which is great for his whiff punish game. It can be used as an anti-air at certain ranges where 236HP won't reach, but the timing window is somewhat strict and may lose to strong jump-ins.

236HP travels straight upward and has a strong anti-air hitbox that works against close jumps, including cross-ups. It is not immediately anti-air invuln, so it must be timed a little early; however, starting too early will make the invuln run out before it connects. As a result, some strong jumpins like Divekicks are difficult for Rashid to anti-air consistently. HP Spinning Mixer is the strongest meterless version for ending juggles, but usually only works in the corner due to its short range.

236PP is Rashid's standard OD reversal. It is fast and works well on the ground, but it loses frequently to air attacks, making it not a worthwhile anti-air in most cases. It has the same trajectory as 236MP, making it easy to bait with a neutral jump. OD Mixer has better juggle potential than the other versions, notably connecting after a corner 236MP even from a grounded starter.

Passing through an air current (such as Lv.2 Super, charged 236[K], or 214PP) powers up Spinning Mixer and gives each version more damage and improved properties.

Enhanced 236LP hits up to 9 times instead of 3, and allows Rashid to link 5LK > 214LK or 5LP > 236MP on hit; if the Mixer counter-hits, he gets even better rewards on hit. On block, he is +2 for the strike/throw mixup. Because it hits so many times, opponents are likely to use Drive Reversal to knock Rashid away; if the opponent is low on meter, setting this up to make them burn out is a worthwhile endeavor. Since the enhanced 236LP is so powerful, it's easy to use it predictably as soon as an Air Current is available; opponents can sniff this out with a back jump and punish hard, so be sure to mix up the timing and consider occasionally baiting this jump.

Enhanced 236MP travels fullscreen and does almost twice as much damage as the standard version. While it's great at taking the opponent to the corner, it no longer allows a followup OD Spinning Mixer juggle.

Enhanced 236HP is the highest damage version of Spinning Mixer. Otherwise, it is mostly the same as the standard version, and is useful if the opponent is too late jumping over a 236[K] or a whiffed 214PP. Many Level 2 Super juggles will end with this move.

At only 4f startup, Enhanced 236PP is the fastest invincible reversal in the game. It can be used to catch jumps or whiffed attacks from long range; however, the invincibility window is shortened to match the faster startup, so it's not always reliable in those situations. The main benefit of Enhanced OD Mixer is that it cancels to Arabian Skyhigh (j.214K) in mid-air, giving Rashid a high damage extension. This cancel also works on block, which may confuse the opponent enough for them to mess up their punish attempt.

Rashid flies forward with a thrusting kick, dealing solid damage and corner carry. It is usually the preferred ender when possible, but the slow startup makes it much more restrictive in combos than Spinning Mixer. The great KD advantage lets Rashid set up his bag of tricks, like a fully charged Whirlwind Shot after the MK and HK versions. OD Eagle Spike can be used in combos to escape the corner and score some extra juggle damage.

All versions are massively unsafe on block; while he bounces far away, Drive Rush makes it trivial to punish with a strong combo. On all blocked Eagle Spikes, Rashid bounces off with a fixed recovery; this means that he cannot make the move safer by connecting on a later active frame. This does not apply on hit, as he can get better KD advantage on a late connect; this even allows unique juggles after a well-spaced corner 214LK, such as 236LP > 236MP > 236PP.

If Eagle Spike passes through an active Air Current, it turns into the enhanced version instead.

When enhanced by an Air Current, Eagle Spike gets extra damage, faster startup, better block advantage and more block pushback. The LK version gets improved corner carry, putting it more in line with the higher strength versions; it can still be punished by some Supers and character-specific Drive Rush starters, so it's not completely abusable. The MK and HK versions (which are functionally identical to each other) are safe against most of the cast; even a move like Cammy's Level 3 Super will not reach for a midscreen punish. The downside is that they also bounce back fullscreen on hit, causing Rashid to lose his best followup oki.

Enhanced OD Eagle Spike has projectile invincibility, and is quite rewarding to land. The damage potential is higher since Rashid is not subjected to extra damage scaling like the standard version. It can be difficult to actually make use of this invincibility since it requires Rashid to set up the Air Current immediately beforehand. Walking in front of the Level 2 Super projectile is one of the few practical scenarios where this might be useful.

Whirlwind Shot is an arcing fireball that can be charged up to enhance its properties. The trajectory depends on the button strength, with LK going the farthest while HK immediately veers upward. The initial hitbox for all versions is large and starts low to the ground, then shrinks as Rashid kicks it away. It takes a long time to charge to a higher level, making it risky to attempt in a blockstring or in neutral; the most common scenario to use charged versions is after a knockdown with high advantage, like some versions of Eagle Spike. If the opponent is cornered, standing at mid-range and charging a Whirlwind can work well if you mix up the strength and charge timings; if you think they may try to jump over the projectile, using a well-spaced HK version can hit them out of the air due to its short arc.

The OD version travels fullscreen straight along the ground, and hits low enough that some anti-projectile moves cannot duck under it. There are only 2 versions of this move, so partially charging it does not enhance its properties. However, a partial charge can still be useful to create an artificial frame gap on block, which may bait the opponent into hitting a button. The threat of an early release may also convince the opponent not to hit a button when canceled from a ranged normal, allowing Rashid to get a full charge and immediate followup pressure.

A fully charged Whirlwind Shot is the only meterless way for Rashid to create an Air Current. Setting up oki scenarios into 236[K] allows Rashid to follow up with enhanced Spinning Mixer for even more damage or block pressure. It's important to be aware of the opponent's reversal options when setting this up, however; Level 1 Supers will lose to the projectile release, but some Level 2 and 3 Supers can shut down much of Rashid's Whirlwind oki.

A defensive Drive Impact is something you must always consider when doing using charged Whirlwind Shot. The OD version charges fast enough that Rashid can cancel into it from medium or heavy normals to beat DI (but not from 5MP~HK). In neutral, DI is also not a viable reaction; at worst, Rashid would get Counter-hit by an early DI rather than crumpled. Charging the meterless version is a bit more risky; there is plenty of time for the defender to hit DI in neutral or from a canceled poke, since only the fully charged version can break the armor. Again, this will only result in a Counter-hit, so it's not a tremendous risk. Rashid does have an interesting counter strategy against Drive Impact - he can release the Whirlwind on reaction to DI, and immediately cancel into Level 3 Super to break through the armor.

All versions of Whirlwind Shot cannot be used if Level 2 Super is active on the screen. The active hitbox must be fully dissipated before Rashid can start inputting another projectile.

Arabian Cyclone starts with a strike, then spawns a pseudo-projectile tornado with a ton of active frames, making it an incredible meaty on the opponent's wakeup. This tornado will clash with projectiles, but acts as a strike hitbox, making it vulnerable to Level 1 Supers. Each strength of the meterless Cyclone becomes progressively safer, but has slower startup that limit Rashid's safe cancel options.

MP Cyclone is great in corner combos, consistently linking into 5LK > 214LK; the pushback midscreen causes this route to whiff unless starting from a point blank 214MP. HP Cyclone is most commonly juggled into after 5MP~HK Target Combo for some easy meterless damage. OD Cyclone's juggle state is easily comboed into, allowing Rashid to followup with an enhanced Run~6K that gives tremendous corner carry. A cancel into Super occurs after the tornado hits, giving plenty of time for a hitconfirm. This also makes meterless 214P a great midrange buffer against opponents in Burnout, as all versions are safe and can be easily hitconfirmed into more damage.

It is possible to use Arabian Cyclone in projectile wars, but the slow startup forces Rashid to throw his out preemptively. Canceling into the 6K Roll followup can potentially allow for a punish depending on the situation.

The followups to Arabian Cyclone give Rashid extra mobility options to confuse the opponent and navigate through their defenses. Gliding with 4K lets Rashid perform a low-height float into an air normal that hits overhead; the unusual look of this glide can be confusing to defend against if you're not looking for it. It also allows meterless combo extensions after 214HP juggles, usually ending with a j.HK knockdown. This gives decent meterless damage and corner carry from a Target Combo starter.

Assault Roll can be used to close the gap after a blocked 214HP, giving Rashid frame advantage. Other versions are unsafe on block but may occasionally work as a gimmick if the opponent is not expecting it. If the HP or OD Cyclone hits, Rashid can cancel his roll into Nail Assault to pick up the juggle, which further cancels into Level 3 Super. While the roll and Nail Assault can both duck under standard projectiles, it is difficult to use this as a reaction counter due to the slow startup of Arabian Cyclone.

  • Leg Projectile Invuln: 1-21f; Forced Knockdown state until landing
  • On hit, transitions into projectile invuln divekick followup; puts opponent into limited juggle OTG state
  • Can be affected by Air Current on frames 1-13


Arabian Skyhigh is an aerial flip kick that transitions into a double jump; the trajectory of the jump depends on the button strength, with LK being the shortest and HK being the longest. It can be used after a forward jump (including after a j.MP/j.2HP cancel) or after a 6KK~KK Front Flip. All versions have a minimum height restriction; as an example, they will not activate after a low-connect j.2HP in juggles. When affected by an Air Current, Rashid shifts forward farther before performing the double jump.

After the double jump, Rashid can use air normals on the way down. When used in air juggles, his heavy air normals (j.HP, j.HK, or j.2HP) will spike the opponent downward. The OD version causes Rashid to perform a divekick that bounces the opponent; if the opponent is high enough, he can follow this up with a 236HP juggle in the corner.

Rashid's Level 1 Super is an upward kick that is useful in juggles, as an anti-air, or as an invincible reversal that can help escape the corner. It has a somewhat shallow trajectory, making it weak to jumps right above him, but Rashid already has 236HP to cover this range.

Because the grounded version switches sides, you generally want to avoid ending a grounded combo with this Super if the opponent is near the corner. Instead, use a route that juggles into it; the positioning is worth far more than the slight damage loss.

On block, Rashid bounces far away from the opponent. However, at -53 it is still easy to punish, especially with Drive Rush or a forward dash into Drive Impact.

  • Spawns a 5-hit Super projectile tornado; travels slowly across the screen, covering a full screen distance
    • Can kick the projectile with 214P to make it travel quickly

  • Depletes 1 Drive bar from opponent on hit (20% x 5 hits)
  • 40% minimum damage scaling
  • Creates an Air Current that lasts until 120f after Super dissipates (enhances many of Rashid's moves)


Rashid summons a slow-moving tornado that gives access to damaging juggles on hit and mixups on block due to the Air Current enhancement. If activating it raw in neutral, it should be done from a long distance so that the opponent cannot interrupt the startup. If Rashid is hit before the tornado spawns, it will not come out and the meter will be wasted. Because the tornado has Super priority, it cannot be dissipated with regular or OD projectiles. Unlike most projectiles, it also does not disappear if it ends up off-screen.

Rashid's Level 3 Super has him performing an invincible version of his LP Spinning Mixer as he glides toward the opponent. The startup is somewhat slow, making it vulnerable to light meaties, and it's even slower at longer ranges due to Rashid's travel time. If it hits, it immediately enters a cinematic; this makes it somewhat useful against projectiles from within ~1/2 screen, as he only needs to clip an extended hurtbox to score a punish (from farther ranges, the invincibility runs out before the Super can hit).

Altair can be juggled into, although the slow startup means it will not work in every possible juggle route; for example, a grounded 236MP cannot cancel its landing recovery into Level 3. Some common cancel routes include 236LP (1st hit), 236MP (1st/2nd hits), 214P, and Roll > Nail Assault.

After the cinematic, Rashid can apply pressure with a Drive Rush starter anywhere on the screen, although he cannot throw against a reversal 4f light normal. 6HK is also a useful meterless meaty option after Level 3 (but not CA); Rashid must walk forward slightly if using this midscreen, otherwise it will whiff on opponents that don't hit a button.
