Inifinite Combo Glitch with D Throw on tall characters

Tall characters can be grabbed out of an OTG attack (cr.A as it happens). The tall characters are very probably Maxima and Chang only

In-depth Analysis

Qualities :

  • Best high/low mixups of game (her Strength Shot Type A which is Overhead, her Strength Shot Type C which is low etc)
  • Best j.c of game (crossup, can hit overhead and low, depending where you hit oponenent, which help her to her mixups thus), one of best j.d of game to air-to-air and one of best j.cd of game
  • Nice backdash (who help her to keep away fastly opponent)
  • One of best characters to zoning (cr.a and nj.c who gets high priority and long reach cause her "whip")
  • Good damage
  • her cr.b can connect in combo after Cancel roll forward
  • Her throws are unbreakable, which is particularly valuable to she for her okizeme gameplay

Faults :

  • Doesn't build meter fast
  • Never stun opponent in matches
  • Almost all her far normal attacks are unsafe, not cancellable thus without interest
  • Only one dm (even if good dm)
  • Has a reversal which is her DM but you will be easily punished if you bad predict opponent's move
  • Pretty hard to play comparing to most others characters
  • One of worst cd and cr.c of game
