Since this thread is about Hawk’s Mexican Typhoon, I wanted to talk about it’s startup in here.
I apologize if this is common knowledge, but I’ve recently come to realize that Hawk’s MT does NOT have invincibility on startup. I’ve played Gief for years in many SF games, and I never really thought about it having invincibility because I always just figured it grabbed so fast that it grabbed most moves due to it’s speed. However the fact it grabs meaties should’ve tipped me off.
Anyways the last few days I’ve been stuffed by so many things when doing reversal MT. At first I was stuffed by specials, and I thought I was just grabbing them during their invincibility. But THEN the next day, I was fighting a Sakura, and her jabs stuffed a reversal MT! Maybe I’m crazy but I’ve never seen that happen to Gief.
So, damn, am I right or just running into flukes? I’m positive they weren’t reversal Tomahawks that I was mistaking for MT.
