where can we discuss shin akuma?

I didnt see a shin akuma thread out there, so I figured Id make one.

I just wanted to talk about what is (in my opinion) one of the best characters in the game. I like him to be second in a team of 3, in C or N groove... I love that hcb,hcb+k super... its got to be the best in the game, there are so many freakin uses....

also, it seems that he has the best combos in the game, my fav. is: jump in qcf+FP,c.lk, qcb+lk, FP shoryuken. does crazy damage and since I use him as a ratio two, it usually scares the oponnent and puts them on the defensive, so I can throw the crap out of them or do a raging demon.

    While he does have some nice moves and combos etc.., i have to disagree when you say he's one of the best. He takes entirely too much damage from attacks, I'd be surprise if two equal players, skill wise, played and shin akuma won. But I agree he has some cool moves, of course I'd never be fooled by a shoto's moves, way to predictable.

    Shin Akuma's new misogi super and the 33 hit raging demon is nice, but he takes massive damage.......a level 3 wipes him out instantly.

    You don't even have to do a supermove when "raged" in K groove when playing against Shin Akuma, because the extra damage added to every move you give is more than enough to kill him by itself.....

    Here's my view on Shin Akuma/Gouki...

    HARD to play since he takes too much damage, but how many people know this? Shin Akuma/Gouki has an AMAZING comboing potential. All he needs is one clean combo opener (as well as a player with good hands :D ). But of course, that's assuming you don't screw up or die before u get a clean hit :p.

    Once the opener lands, and you know what you're doing, the game is over. With the combo ending with Misogi. The most hits I've ever done is 43 (42:manual hits ending with 43:Misogi), of course, killing the other player.

    But even though he is THE strongest character in the game (damage wise) he's too easy to kill! :D


    Curious, does ANYONE know exactly what I'm talking about? :D :lol:

    ok, so whats the infinite! cough it up!
  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    True, it is an infinite combo but the trade off is that he can get killed easily, so I think he's balanced out. And plus, the infinite combo takes some practice, you know when u get to a corner, u need to switch sides without breaking the combo.

    But of course, I don't play Shin Akuma, too hard to stay alive lol:D

    well ur wrong the ragging demon with shinakuma is good. its fast and hard to move from. but really sorry to say this whole thread is use less. can u tell me an arcade that allows the use of shin akuma. and i know that he is not in tourneys either. so y waiste ur time on talking about him. also he is the boss and is one of the best characters in the game. his walking is as fast as a running akuma. so he is top tier, also he has an infinate combo.

    well damn it guys what is that infinite combo????? i use shin akuma against my buddies terry, ryu, and kim. he does decent damage but i turtle with him. one of my fav combos is the jump in qcf fierce punch, half back short jab, into the level three chop. but seriously what is that infinite cuz i could really use it. thanks, stay up.

    well if u turlte with shin akuma i bet u dont win much, and if u do ur buddies may not be that great. im fairly sure the infinate combo is air fireball twice then crouching fierce. keep repeating that. u end the combo with a crouching fierce to chop. but dont quote me on this im not sure. u have to be able to switch sides without breaking the combo. but really dont turtle. he is the best rushdown in the game not the best turtle.

    I use to fear the CPU Shin Akuma till I tore him up with Sagat. It was just unbearably easy.

    Infinite:

    double air fireball, land, jump forward j.strong XX double air fireball, land, repeat. Or something like that. Can be done in corner, you can alternate the standard jumping set with something like jump straight up j.RH XX double air fireball... I think.
    I only play games with RCs.

    i find it sad that u need to use a top teir character to beat a comp. shin akuma is beat by any uppercut and low hits like cammy's spiril arrow, shin akuma is shit when the comp uses him.

    well if your goal is to beat a comp, well i dont know what to say.
    comps are nothing. if you fear a computer i wonder how u do at arcades or in tourneys.

    Damn, you must live in the middle of nowhere if you can go through Single, 3 on 3, and/or Ratio by yourself. Cuz where I live you can't go through it by yourself cuz everyone will play you. And no one uses Shin Akuma. :rolleyes:

    IM not really sure if this is the right place to post this (my first post and all..) but I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to unlock Shin Akuma as a playable character?

    Ive looked at gamefaqs and a few other places and Ive done what they said (1500+, SNk groove, beat the middle boss, etc.) and i still cant get him. Ive never even gotten to play him as an end boss. All i have played are normal akuma, rugal and ult. rugal.

    Anything special that you have to do? Thanks in advance!
  • JuggyJuggy Joined: Posts: 413
    It isn't SNK groove, it is SNK Character, no continues, and 1500+... it is also random I have noticed/heard... he doesn't always appear, but make sure you are using a SNK character, just one, not two-three characters.

    ???

    I think you're a bit confused.

    To unlock Shin Akuma meet these condition's, (you can use less, or different ones, but this will definatly do it.)

    1. Do Arcade SINGLE PLAYER
    2. Use a CAPCOM Groove
    3. Use a CAPCOM Character
    4. Beat everybody without any continues
    5. Beat the Mini-boss (random guy between last normal round and the final.)
    6. Get 1500+ points by the end of the final round.
    7. Shin Akuma should appear. Beat him. As many continues as you like.

    There are definatly many other way's but that's pretty damn simple and will always work. Good luck.
    I intend to live forever. So far so good.

    shin akuma is a VERY powerful character, but you have to be a cut above, or have a massive amount of guts to use him in a competetive setting. the idea to staying alive is, "dont get hit - EXTREME!" but if you can manage that, he's nuts to play.

    i have days where i can wipe people off the erf, and days where im the 3shot loss. im glad they nerfed him, though or he would be too much
