It is time to start a 3rd Strike - Chun-Li thread, because right now all the 3rd Strike strats for Chun-Li are hidden within other threads about other 3rd Strike characters.
As an avid Third Strike Chun-Li player, I would love to see more discussion on this character.
I have seen other Chun-Li threads started before the crash, but they all ended up turning into a “use back+fierce” thread. No explaination, other than “it own rog 4 free!” I’m going to be exploring the back+fierce, and tell you WHY “it own all 4 free!”
First off here is the bread and butter for Chunners:
Back+Fierce --> Kikkoken
Back+Fierce --> Houyokusen --> Superjump --> Down+Midkick
Back+Fierce --> Kikkoken --> Houyokusen --> Superjump --> Fierce --> Fierce
Here is the way it works. Use the back and fierce to punish any poke that your opponent tries. ALWAYS do this motion when you do back and fierce: Back+Fierce --> HCF --> QCF. If you miss the back and fierce, don’t press any more buttons. If it connects and you don’t have enough meter to do the Houyokusen, hit the punch right as you reach forward on your HCF and you will combo into the kikkoken. If you do have enough meter to do the super, then cancel the back and fierce into super (or cancel the fierce into kikkoken then cancel the kikkoken into super) by hitting the punch and/or kick at the correct part of the motion: Back+Fierce --> HCF - Punch --> QCF - Kick.
Now, here is the most beautiful part. The back and fierce can’t get canceled into super unless it connects. In other words, even if you whiff, and do the motion to cancel it into the Houyokusen (without canceling into kikkoken first) and input the kick, the super won’t come out unless the back and fierce already connected.
If anyone else has other back+fierce strats, post them please.
