Introduction

About Alex

Alex is a character of highs and lows. In some matches and matchups Alex will get thrown into the corner and bullied to death due to his weak defensive options, while other games you will perfect your opponent in 15 seconds as you make all the right reads and murder them while feeling like the smartest person to ever play Street Fighter. While he has a command grab and the slower walk speed that makes him seem like a grappler, he is more of a brawler type focusing on poking away at the opponent with his longer ranged pokes until they get frustrated and make a mistake giving Alex an opening, at which point he must capitalize as he often won't get another chance.Playing Alex required patiences, both in looking for an opening and being forced to deal with relentless pressure and overwhelming odds much of the time. However there are few feelings in SFV as wonderful as barely eeking out a win as Alex from managing to make 3-4 correct reads in a row or landing an amazing parry into EX Power Bomb. Alex is also a low-execution character, with most of his combos being only 2-3 hits long and having few complicated setups or oki situations. If you want to have fun and don't care about only winning, Alex isn't a bad choice.

SFV Frame Data Glossary
Active

How many frames a move remains active (can hurt opponents) for.

Attack

Attack level is L for low attacks (must be blocked crouching), H is for High attacks (which can be blocked high or low) and M for overhead (must be blocked standing). T is for throw attacks (which cannot be blocked).

Cancel options

Available cancel options.

  • "ch": Chain cancel, refer to description for options.
  • "sp": Special move.
  • "su": Critical art.
  • "vs[1/2]": V-Skill 1 or 2.
  • "vt[1/2]": V-Trigger 1 or 2 activation.
Confirm windows

Hit confirm windows written as Specials & CAs/Target Combos/V-Trigger. Notation may denote V-Skill only cancel windows in Specials.

  • Refers to the amount of time (in frames) you have to cancel into another move from the start of the animation.
Crush Counter

Crush Counter hit advantage written as opponent state, frame advantage, and v-gauge gain on hit.

Damage

Attack damage on hit. Notation may denote multi-hit or "sweet spot" damage values on certain frames.

Hit/Block

These are frame advantage values when the attack hits or is blocked. If the number is positive, then the move will end before the defender can act again. If the number is negative, the defender will be able to act before the attacker and maybe even punish. KD refers to knockdown on hit.

  • Note that generally, normal counter hits add an additional +2 to hit advantage in SFV.
Knockdown

Knockdown advantage against Normal, Quick Rise and Back Rise wake up options.

Recovery

How many frames it takes for a move to finish after it's been active.

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.

Stun

Amount of stun added to the opponent's stun bar on hit.

3F reversals (like 3F jabs) will counter-hit Alex if he cancels into Power Drop / Choke Sleeper (during V-Trigger 2) on the last frame (frame 40) - so the cancel has to be frame perfect (frame 39) to beat 3F reversals

The next attack Alex manages to land will result in a 'Hard Hit' (adds Counter-Hit properties but gives +5F advantage instead of the usual +2F; Scales as 1 hit)
Adds +3 advantage instead of +5 on a Crush Counter
Hard Hit 'Crush Counters' are not subject to a standard 2-hit scaling
This added Counter-Hit bonus goes away if a move is blocked by the opponent (does NOT go away if hit during startup of Alex's attack)
This V-Skill buff does not go away if Alex is knocked down
Alex is NOT in a Counter-Hit state during this power-up
This power-up builds 50 V-Meter by itself

The next special attack (Flash Chop, Elbow Slash, Air Stampede, or Head Crush) that Alex uses will be special cancelable on hit or block into: Flash Chop, Elbow Slash, Air Stampede, or Knee Smash (but not the same move into itself)
Regular Special Attacks can cancel into any version, but EX Special Attacks can only cancel into another EX Special Attack
This special cancel property goes away if the next special attack (Elbow Slash, Air Stampede, or Flash Chop) that connects on hit or block is not canceled into (the exception being that a Head Crush attempt whiffs the V-Skill 2 buff fades away)
This V-Skill buff does not go away if Alex is knocked down
Alex is NOT in a Counter-Hit state during this power-up
The special that Alex cancels into grants him both V-Meter and EX meter

This move refers to Sledge Hammer Lvl 1 that is not fully charged (held up to 61f)
Minimum of 13 frame startup on the charge itself followed by the Sledge Hammer Attack 7F later at earliest
Level 1 startup on the charge itself ranges from 13-61 frames depending on how early / late you let go of the HP+HK buttons
Immediately upon input, spends 100 V-Meter (5% of V-Timer) and gains 20 EX gauge (15% of one EX bar)
Upon release, spends 400 V-Meter (23.5% of V-Timer)
While charging, Alex can parry any kind of strike or projectile attack from frames 2-57. See Sledge Hammer (Parry) for more details
2F faster startup (18F) and 1F faster (1-57F) Parry window when canceled into
Recovers 22F faster (29f) on Whiff but ONLY if Alex releases Sledge Hammer while the opponent is NOT above or below him
No collision boxes after active frames end (to pass through the opponent)
The Sledge Hammer follow-up move is always -12 on block (despite it showing -8 in game), even if released 1 frame before it's fully charged
Cancelable into all Specials and Super on a successful parry or after a Sledge Hammer hit

This move refers to successful parry if not canceled into the Sledge Hammer follow-up
Upon successful parry, gains 200 V-Meter (11.7% of V-Timer)
1F startup if canceled into from a prior successful parry
Release buttons during hitstop of parry (18F hitstop) to stop the Sledge Hammer Attack follow-up from coming out
5F of recovery on a successful parry (if not canceled into the Sledge Hammer follow-up)
When a parry is successful, the game freezes momentarily during which time Alex is briefly fully invincible for 1 frame and then Projectile invincible for 15 frames (after 18 freeze frames, both characters start moving again)
You can calculate your frame advantage on a successful parry (if you don't cancel out of it) by adding up the remaining Active + Recovery frames on the opponent's move you just parried and subtract that with your parry recovery frames (5F recovery) - (Example: Parrying first active frame of Akuma's 2MP; 2+12 frames (14) frames left to play out for Akuma -> 14-5 = +9 advantage for Alex after the Parry)
Alex can also cancel a successful parry into all his Specials, V-Trigger Specials, or Super on frames 10-20 of the parry which enbles Alex to start his Specials 8F before the opponent even gets out of the parry freeze frames (Example: If we use Akuma's 2MP again, it has 14 frames left to play out after it is parried -> 14+8 = 22 frames, which means that Alex can punish Akuma with up to a 22F start-up Special)

Can tick throw into DDT on block when canceled from crouch LP and stand LK
Startup is 10F faster (12F) when canceled into from normals (combos from all of them except crouch LK)
Spends 500 V-Meter (~16.6% V-Timer) on startup and 500 V-Meter (~16.6% of V-Timer) again if it connects on hit

Spends 1000 V-Meter (33% of V-Timer)
Can only be performed as a cancel
Cancelable into from all normals except 6MP, Flash Chops and LK / EX Slash Elbow on hit and block
HOW TO YAMI DROP: If the Power Drop / Choke Sleeper (during V-Trigger 2) follow-up cancel is executed on the latter 2 frames of the HP Flash Chop cancel window (frames 39-40) then they will connect even after canceling into it from block
3F reversals (like 3F jabs) will counter-hit Alex if he cancels into Power Drop / Choke Sleeper (during V-Trigger 2) on the last frame (frame 40) - so the cancel has to be frame perfect (frame 39) to beat 3F reversals

Shifts back 1.10 range
Fully invincible on frames 1-9 during which time any strike or projectile evaded will trigger a slow-motion effect on frame 11 for both players
Immediately gains full invincibility for the full duration of V-Shift if you successfully evade a strike or projectile on start-up frames 1-9
Throw invincible on frames 1-16 on an empty / raw V-Shift
Counter-Hit state on frames 10-31 on an empty / raw V-Shift
Opponent can still cancel the attack that was V-Shifted as if it had connected (this allows for a lot of shenanigans)
Costs 300 V-Gauge (1 bar) to use and refunds 150 V-Gauge back (1/2 bar) on a successful V-Shift if the slow-mo is triggered
If the V-Shift is successful you can cancel it into a follow-up attack (see V-Shift Break) that's fully invincible and knocks the opponent down on hit
