edited October 21 in Zeku

Zeku, Ever-Changing Ninja, the last character in Season 2, will officially leap into Street Fighter V on October 24!

First seen in Street Fighter Alpha 2, Zeku was Guy’s former teacher, who taught him to master Bushinryu, a style of ninjutsu. Eventually, Guy was able to obtain the title of 39th Master of Bushinryu. Zeku then disappeared and was never seen again…until now! Zeku has reappeared looking to start his own ninja group and find a new fighting style.

His younger version sure looks familiar!

For players who want to learn the art of Zeku, it will require intense training to hone his multiple skill sets due to his ability to transform. His older self has slower moves and a special flip in the air, which can be followed up with different options to keep the opponent guessing. His younger self is quicker and has a short run, which can also open up opponents.

STATS AND V-SYSTEM EXPLANATION
AtZMFiE.png

V-Skill: Fukuro (Older Self),
V-Skill: Tenpo Kari (Younger Self)

Zeku performs a special technique that transforms him to his younger self, completely changing his move set. He can then use Tenpo Kari to transform back. Depending on the directional input you press after the V-Skill connects, Zeku will teleport either in front or behind the opponent.

V-Trigger: Bushinryu Shinge Kiko
Allows Zeku to perform a single special dash that can be followed up with a custom combo that deals additional hits. Both forms have the same V-Trigger.

    Is it confirmed that Zeku turns young, or is a smoke and mirrors routine? He could of found some hobo off the street that's a spitting image of his younger self, and trained him in the traditional bushin like Guy. Then during fights does some Naruto log swap bullshit only except with his trained hobo.

    Maybe he does this to invoke some sort of false mysticism into his new fighting style; this could be for recruiting purposes to make some cash and gain prestige. Like some guy promising that if reach black belt, you'll too have the power to tap into your youth for $9.99 a month!

    HELL YES

    This gu... eh ninja has the potential to be bonkers. Imagine using his old self for the neutral-ranged combat, then transforming at the first knockdown in order to start and keep the pressure on wake up. Best of both worlds.

    (please god don't give him a unfavorable matchup against Guile!!)

    Thought he'd just be a Guy clone with some of Maki's moves, but it's a pretty new moveset. Good work Capcom.

    Did Maki crack Zeku from behind while he was fighting Guy? Zeku seems to have Akuma levels of skill. I know Guy is strong, Bison seemed to respect his power in the SFA series, but Zeku seems to be on another level.

    Notice the kick special moves for his Aged form have gram as a suffix, which are moves that the Strider Hiryu utilizes. Almost concretely confirms that Zeku is the originator of the Strider clan as many have posited.

    He could have gotten better with age refining his technique, may have been weaker until the loss to Guy

    Without question the best addition to SFV. His theme song is outta sight, Ninja Jazz-Funk with Shakuhachi flute segments!

    I'll have one week to mess with Black Panther. After that it's Bushinryu training non-stop.

    It doesn't shed much light on his gameplay but the Zeku blog post on Unity does have more images of his alternate costumes.

    Weaker opponents can still beat stronger ones. Even much stronger ones.
    Guy beating Zeku must have been a huge upset, and Guy must have worked hard for that victory back in Alpha.

    What is Young Zeku his qcf+p special exactly? It isnt hozanto(shoulder) and it isnt a bushin flip. Surely this must be an anti air grab similar like laura. I thought during the vid it was a TK airgrab but it seems like a anti air grab.

    Speaking of anti airs, OZ seems to have great ex anti air DP, also saw a cr.hp(?) Which looked like an aa but it moved forward a lot...

    YZ uses the qcfp then as an AA i assume. Hope its reliable, i dont mind having no anti air normals if his specials do the job.

    *Edit: his qcf+p is a palm type move, ex gives crumple. He might struggle during YZ with AA's unlike OZ. YZ can probably do cr.hk(slide) to avoid crossups though like Dhalsim.

    My notes thus far from data we have available.

    Zeku will most likely NOT have the run-stop pressure like Guy.
    Aged form will have heavy damage output and be more focused on controlling space.
    Young form will be more focused on rushdown.

    Aged form;
    all outcomes of Bushin Flip (Jakura) can be blocked low. Not sure if this will be useable as a punish on reaction as it looks too slow. Seems like it'll be mainly used for cross-up potential or possibly post-move frame traps.
    His overhead is only an overhead. Nothing cancels or combos afterwards.
    cr HP and MK Force standing.
    QCF+HK knocks back. LK & MK knockdown.
    Bushin Gram - Koku negates 1-hit projectiles.

    Young form;
    Bushin Sho negates 1-hit projectiles.
    can cancel from V Skill into CA.
    HK has heavy recovery and moves Zeku forward.
    Jump cancel Hozanto into EX Bushin Sangoku Otoshi.
    Can use Bushin Sangoku Otoshi after Wall jump.
