The T.Hawk Dhalsim matchup has definitely gotten MUCH easier for Hawk since Super. As of right now it’s really debatable who is the more dominant character in this matchup. I have a good amount of experience in this matchup as a T.Hawk player so I’ll give my two-cents -
T.Hawk: One of the things that works nicely in Hawk’s favor in this matchup is the fact that all trades with Sim’s limbs trades in Hawk’s favor. It takes a lot of effort from a Sim player to kill Hawk because Sim (in most cases) is only able to inflict damage from single hits which does low damage in contrast to Hawk’s high health. On the other hand, all Hawk really needs are a few knockdowns/chances to get in Sim’s face and that’s all Hawk needs to win this matchup. Hawk can end the matchup quickly by capitalizing on a few opportunities while Sim has to play the waiting game and let the match drag on.
Dhalsim: Hawk struggles against many projectile characters and Dhalsim is no exception. Dhalsim can limit Hawk in ways that many other projectile characters can’t. Every Condor Dive including EX are all punishable on block. Because Sim has such great reach he can also limit Hawk’s meter building in ways that no other characters can. The two safest ways for Hawk to build meter is to do a whiffed Condor Spire or Mexican Typhoon. Because Sim is always within reach he can easily poke Hawk on reaction to him doing these moves. If Hawk can’t build the meter it’ll become harder for him to get in on Sim.
So yeah, it’s hard to say. I believe this matchup has the potential to be an even 5/5 but honestly I don’t think Hawk truly and genuinely has enough to have the advantage against Sim. Hawk can end the match quickly with a few opportunities but Sim can keep Hawk out and make it tough for him to get in. I strongly believe this matchup boils down to patience. Whoever can exercise the most patience is the more likely to win.
