Hey everyone, just picked up MvC3 last night and the first thing I started tinkering with is the Raging Demon. If anyone knows me from SSFIV, I love landing this move.
I can’t seem to find any frame data on this game, and as such so far what’ve I’ve found is just based off what I’ve seen. It will take time (and finding out the frame data) before we see if it’s viable in matches and just what kind of set ups we can use
First thing, Akuma’s Teleport. It seems to have a ridiculously fast recovery. For instance, I teleported backwards and on reaction my friend did a Photon Cannon, but I was able to block. Knowing this, the next time he did his Unibeam / Ryu assist I teleported behind him, hid the Demon inputs during the teleport, and as soon as the teleport ended hit him with the Demon.
Secondly, it seems to be an instant grab, if not again a very quick one. It can be used to punish a lot of blocked specials (I’ll try and get a video up sometime soon)
I know the 3 bars can be used better most likely, but I love landing this move. With the multitude of characters and assists with varying block stuns I see a lot of potential for tick demons as well
