Down short Standing Strong (whiff) into Throw (on wake-up)
Why is it that people do this?
I imagine all this does is telegraph your intentions.
If you wanted to throw on wake-up, couldn’t you have done so without this? And doesn’t this deny you options as their wake-up dragon will be a free hit otherwise?
Is it just filler? Like Magneto ‘rushing’ air just to make the other guy freak out from what you’re doing?
Is it to ensure that you can throw (because your opponent is obviously “awake” enough for you to down short, you can thus throw)?
I hope it isn’t a super bar building thing.
Typo: I meant down short standing jab. I’ve seen it with either Ken or Ryu, but I’m sure it applies to most people.
