I don't know how to translate Japanese names, so I will keep them as is, I only know how to recognize a few, I will use the english ones for what I know, if you know the translation, post it and I will edit it!

Rufus is: ????? in Kanji (?)

Thanks to changuillo for the first 3 videos!


1 - http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=1j2S6956MWk

Video from: 0:00 - 2:04

Rufus vs Ryu
??? v 777


Notes (courtesy of changuillo):

changuillo says:

on 1:39, rufus punishes a tatsumaki with cr.HP. good counter for far tatsumaki attempts.

I think you can even do it when they throw a tatsu on your face (in the vids also shows that rufus can duck and evade Ryus tatsumaki completely)


2 -

Video from: 0:00 - 2:40

Rufus vs Rufus
?? vs ???

Notes (courtesy of kesh! and changuillo):

kesh! says:

First combo off the bat is very important to get down. Dive kick, st. lk, st.mp, hp tornado. I found it hard to do, but after some practice (and being shown it) I got it nailed down, timing is quite strict.

When you see a rufus v rufus mirror match, like most sf4, its a race to get to the ultra, rufus has the lucky advantage of being able to link his ultra from the air and ground with minimal effort...abuse this!

Right now, we are kind of forced as Rufus players to have a bit of psychic initiative to land our best combo (imo) j. hk air to air, ex snake strike which does an absurd amount of damage for very little meter. This doesn't mean to throw it out every 5 seconds, but be cautious and also KNOW when your ex will hit fully...you can get a feel of it, if you air to air him and hes too low, do the lp snake strike, save that meter for your best move, ex messiah kick.

changuillo says:

at 1.28 rufus throws a messiah kick, the other rufus tries to counter with ultra but the first one does the HK follow-up and evades the ulta completely.


Video from: 2:40 - 3:43

Zangief vs Rufus
??????vs ???

Notes (courtesy of kesh! and changuillo):

kesh! says:

Rufus should have relatively low fear of zangief as compared to the rest of the cast. Our short jump dive kick is a very fast weapon that can be beaten out by Giefs lariat, but that gief would have to guess that you were about to dive kick in the first place. We can do our block strings, gief will probably SPD, do a quick dive kick and do whatever combo we want off that. Also, cr. hp is your friend in this round! Don't be afraid to turtle to time out, you've got the advantage in this match up (imo) use it!

changuillo says:

The other match there (Zangief vs Rufus) is very educative since it shows us how to keep zangief away (to a decree) so its a must see for all of us Pop corn lovers.

    sick, I wanted a thread like this:

    I think you can even do it when they throw a tatsu on your face (in the vids also shows that rufus can duck and evade Ryus tatsumaki completely)

    good matches, shows that Rufus has serious problems against a turtle blanka =(. We need some strats (GG might open a thread, he has good info)

    Just a comment, Rufus means Red Haired in Latin (Hes blond but well...)

    Theres some more videos



    This is something I havent seen before, check at 1:30, Ken does cr.mk (i think) into EX hadoken, and Rufus does EX messiah kick and goes throught the fireball and hits ken. I assume lp Tornado could work, but if its a EX fireball maybe it would hit fus on the start up, that need more testing.

    on the same vid at 1:39, Rufus does EX messiah kick in the corner and crosses up Ken (and ken was able to punish). I dont know if this is some kind of "ken only" but its important to point out.




    0:38 rufus punishes Chuns cross up kick (DF HK if im not mistaken) with Snake strike (lp version I think) before it actually crosses up.

    EDIT:

    new videos and info. I uploaded with my account because I didnt feel like looking for them on YT (they werent on hardedge channel anyways)

    first one, Rufus vs Sagat:

    minute 1:18, Rufus does a blocked EX messiah kic, and follows-up with the overhead. Sagat attempts to shoryuken him...but what happens?? Rufus avoids it completely, very interesting.

    Sec: Rufus vs C.Viper:

    The player here (which I assume is the same that the one in the first vid) discovers how to shut down Vipers blaze kick when she uses when jumping at you, just use cr.mp and youll be fine..EX messiah kick also works

    Sorry for the double post, but this is important and needs its own post:

    On my Youtube account, im uploading tons of Rufus matches I had in my PC and ill be uploading every vid I might encounter on gamechariot, a-cho or the sakurablog (is that the name right?). So that you can watch them and learn a lot (and also to leave comments here about the matches, because im not doing all the job you know! )

    oh you play Jam! same as me man :rofl:haha, well, on topic:


    dont block fireballs too often, FA them, jump + safe divekick them or throw an HP tornado when close enough...it eats fireballs, you dont recieve chip damage and you hit the opp. dont try to jump at Ryu when he throws them because you will be doing exactly what he wants you to do. So teaching him that FBs wont work.

    try more mix-up, dont do only block strings. G.gunman has posted good block strings, so go and check them, and most important, have fun.

    iyo vs kindevu: Dhalsim its an horrible matchup for rufus, he has to rely on SA a lot in this fight (high risk) in order to past through dhalsims lame long range pokes. One important thing to remember, if you manage to hit dhalsim, hit him with everything youve got because you dont know when or IF youre gonna get him again.

    I wouldn't say it's a 'horrible' matchup, because once Rufus gets up in Dhalsim's face, there are a little amount of options Dhalsim can do, and a whole world of options for Rufus.

    Running off of my experiences playing against Dhalsim players with Rufus, I'd say the match is pretty even: Dhalsim wins if he keeps away successfully, but if Rufus closes the gap, then he wins.

    Yep. Agreed.

    I do think its 5:5 at the moment... BUT and this is a big but, the match is generally decided by how well the Sim player plays. IMO, the Sim player *has* to screw up in some way or another for the Rufus to be able to win, mainly because all of Sim's keep away options are safe/semi-safe, while all of Rufus's ways of getting in are horribly risky. Look at how Kindevu has to resort to random round house Messiah Kicks to close distance... normal Messiah Kicks are pretty shitty (unsafe AND stuffable through most of the animation) and should be used sparingly, but Iyo's keepaway leaves Kindevu little choice but to hope for a knockdown/ultra combo off those random Messiahs.

    Yes, even a small screw up will cost Sim the game due to the damage differential, but that doesn't change the fact that its Sim who needs to screw up before Rufus gets in in the first place.

    So yeah, it appears to be 5:5 now, but I wouldn't be surprised if it shifts to 6:4 Sim as Sim players get better at using all his keepaway options.

    IMO is just like "SHITTY COMPARISON WARNING!!!" ky vs slayer on GG, sure slayer can kill ky in 2 combos, but he has to take a lot of risks whereas ky doesnt. Ky can just zone him to death and slayer has to rely on really risky tricks in order to get the damage "SHITTY COMPARISON END"

    so its almost the same here, rufus NEEDS to take high risks and even so it doesnt guarantee him to get Sim. So you need to be 1 step forward sim in order to hit him in this fight

    It's possible. I have done it multiple times by accident (I hate the new "shortcut"). What do you want to know about it? I can post up damage etc.

    NICE video.

    Call me stupid, but I didn't realize that you can do Ultra after a jumping Fierce like at 2:05. It seems so obvious now. Could be useful.

    Also, holy fuck at the range of the spinning piledriver at 3:17. I know that you can grab the hitbox of an attack, but he was like 1/3 screen away.

    ya I was thinking about this before and after you posted this. and i've come to the conclusion of its practicality as one of these reasons:

    -he was too far for s.lk->s.rk to combo into ultra
    -s.rk in target combo wiffs
    -damage scales more than he wanted.
    -he didn't know?(but he's japanese...)

    The Ultra> Cross up MK set up at 2:11 is an awesome set up.

    Someone needs to test this NOW.

    Ultra (hit)> Ultra ends> MP Snake Strike> Jump forward MK

    Does the MK always cross up right as they wake up? Against which characters? Does the Ultra have to hit at a certain distance?

    Hey Puff, what is this new "shortcut" method you are mentioning
  • cozenycozeny I plink there4 I am Joined: Posts: 381
    The "shortcut" I assume he is referring to is the one which allows Dragon Punch "z" motions to be performed as df,df. Sometimes if you're execution is a little off the game will interpret your input for the Ultra instead as df,df and you'll get a snake strike after the FADC and not the Ultra.

    Hit it right on the money.

    I'd rather have nothing come out at all than an EX snake strike.

  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    How does that shortcut help you if you are TRYING to throw out an Ultra? You dont want to do the df, df because you are trying to do the Ultra off that FADC right? Your explanation would make sense if you were trying to throw a snake-strike and wanted to make sure not to throw an ultra or QCF move..
  • cozenycozeny I plink there4 I am Joined: Posts: 381
    It doesn't help, it's annoying.
  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    I gotcha he is saying he doesn't like the new shortcut which means he isnt using it, which is why hes throwing out snake strikes. I am the same way :P I constantly lose matches throwing out a randomly wiffing snake strike when things get tight, darn Z movement just seems to always register.

    This is pretty much what happens. I try and do Ultra right? So I do this.
    :qcf::d::df::3p:

    Which would normally just give me nothing or be nice enough to super in other games. This game it gives me an EX Snake Strike.

    Even when I do :qcf::qcf::3p: it will sometimes register as an EX Snake Strike (Used the show inputs in training.)

    So in you actually need more precision than before haha.

    it's a timing thing, you can beat blankas electricity out right as he starts it up with dive kick. you have to triangle kick though, so don't do a super high overhead dive kick.

    I believe I am right haha. I beat blanka's electricity with dive kicks 75% of the time with this belief.
