PAUL

*Aiming for the Top *

A hot-tempered fighter who aims to be the toughest fighter in the universe. He is Law’s eternal sparring partner. He has suffered a countless number of defeats in battle, but refuses to give up. Instead he takes on these challenges head-on. He is currently mired in a mountain of debt, but after hearing news of a mysterious box in the Antarctic, him and Law head off to obtain it and the potential riches it would reward them with.

NORMALS:

All lights have JP 2.
All mediums have JP 3.
All heavies have JP 4.

s.:lp:: Good for pressure and frame traps. 30 damage.

cl.:mp:: Important combo and hit-confirm tool up close, thanks to its fast start-up and good frame advantage. If you chain into this move, you can combo a c.LP afterwards on hit, and you’re safe if it’s blocked. 60 damage, 42 damage if chained into.

cl.:hp:: Forces stand. 90 Damage normally, 60 Damage if it hits with the top of his hand.

far s.:mp:: Moves forward slightly, can be used as a counterpoke to beat some non-low pokes made by the opponent. 60 damage.

far s.:hp:: Crumples on standing counterhit. Can be used as a poke, and cancelled to LP sway to check for counterhits. 90 Damage.

c.:mp:: Good move for tight juggles and link combos. 60 damage.

c.:mk:: Has good reach, but is a little on the slow side with its 7 start-up frames. 60 Damage.

c.:hp:: Best grounded anti-air normal. Forces stand. 80 Damage.

c.:hk:: Is unsafe on block, but has a lot of pushback, which makes it kinda hard to punish. 90 Damage.

j.:lk:: Best air-to-air. 40 damage.

j.:mk:: Good cross-up. 70 Damage.

j.:hp:: Probably his best normal jump-in. 100 damage.

nj.:hp:: The angle makes it a good tool to pressure the opponent up close. 100 damage.

nj.:hk:: Good air-to-air. 100 Damage.

:hp:+:hk:: JP: 4

COMMAND NORMALS:

:f:+:mp:: Hammer of the Gods. A normal overhead. quite fast, but not as fast as some of the other characters’ overheads. Can’t combo off of it unless it’s counterhit or in a juggle, both which causes groundbounce. Can be used after partner’s Cross Rush midscreen. 60 Damage. JP: 3

:df:+:hk:,:p:,:p:: Bone Breaker to Demolition Man. Can be followed up in the corner with a juggle. Last hit will whiff mid-screen. If the first is a counterhit, the entire string will hit grounded instead of as a juggle, and will connect midscreen. Last hit is super cancellable. 50,50,100 Damage. All hits: JP: 4.

:f:+:hp:: Hammer Punch: A weaker, slower overhead than Hammer of the Gods, but it can be cancelled into Hang Over, Phoenix Smasher, EX Phoenix Smasher or Super. Cannot connect on airborne opponents, only standing and on groundbounce. First hit of Hang Over is -1 on block and a low, so it might be a good idea to cancel into it if blocked, although the gap is quite large and you can get punished for trying. On hit, you can hit-confirm into EX PS if you want a chance to start a longer combo, or LP Phoenix Smasher or Super for quick damage. 50 Damage. JP: 4.

:f:+:hp:,:df:+:hk:,:p:,:p:: Hang Over to Demolition Man. First hit is overhead. First hit won’t combo into the others unless it’s a counterhit. The opponent will still be grounded throughout the entire string, unlike Bone Breaker. Last hit is still super cancellable though.50,50,50,100 Damage. All hits: JP: 4.

I guess I better reserve a spot, just in case.


#3

I don’t get why he’s punching aliens but whatever, Pyron and Saturn cameo FTW!


#4

[media=youtube]RT9MTVLackY[/media]

Thats why. best ending in Tekken 5


#5

sad that they took the ‘dumb brawler’ paul instead of the stylish paul from tekken 4.
I hope we get the rocker outift as alternate or even better his tekken 4 haircut, since in this game his hair is even longer, and damn… heihachi could be envious about dem eyebrows lol

his super looks dope tho.

his vs screen picture:

and he has his trademark hope kick:


#6

I hope he has awesome dialogue when he beats Ken.


#7

Or Guile.


#8

I’m pretty sure that both of them get their share [more likely guile tho] as his rival.
cody (if he makes it, which I’m pretty sure about) would be another option. both are very simialar in their physique and fighting style. both are ‘street fighter’ aswell.


#9

I figured it was simply Paul vs Paul.


#10

[LEFT]Glad to finally see Paul in this game, even though his vs screen image is absolutely hideous. I personally think he’ll be really good character.[/LEFT]


#11

Hope he has demolition man present in this game. Doubtful, but still hoping.


#12

Another Phoenix for people to worry about.


#13

the one tekken character i wanted and thank god they added him…i was worried it was going was going to be girl fighter 4


#14

Yes! Paul is finally in…now I have some hope for the game.


#15

Yeah, hideous. Hideously AMAZING.


#16

UWRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!


#17

So is it “Leave this to a bro” or “Leave this to a pro”?


#18

Quite sure it’s “pro”. “Bro” would be hilarious though.

Also, why does he sound like a newb trying to say Tatsumaki Senpukyaku when he does his super? So random.


#19

what does he say exactly when he does his super?
best thing is OSU at the end.


#20

Sounds like “masenpuuken” which I guess could be translated to “demon hurricane fist”?
