F-tricks for Gen

No, F does not stand for a bad word but for… “Falling”. In Japanese it’s a technique that’s called “F式” (that kanji means expression, formula). It consists in this: when you jump in on your opponent and he BLOCKS your jump in, you immediately follow it up with another jump attack. You have to input the second attack as soon as you begin your second jump.

Check this list and keep in mind that:
Use in the mentioned cases a back Crane jHK to get you in a safe situation;
Use a vertical or forward Crane jMK for the last chip damage;
A vertical Crane jMK inflicts 20 damages more than a diagonal one.

Shakudan -> back Crane jHK
• Vega, Sagat, Seth, Deejay, T.Hawk

Shakudan -> back Crane jMK
• Zangief, Vega, Sagat, M.Bison, Abel, Seth, Gen, Dan, Deejay, T.Hawk, Cody, Dudley, Adon

Shakudan -> vertical Crane jMK
• Zangief, Guile, Vega, Sagat, Rufus, Abel, Seth, Gouken, Gen, Dan, Deejay, T.Hawk, Dudley, Adon

Shakudan -> back Crane jMP
• Vega, Sagat, Seth, Deejay, T.Hawk

Crane jMK -> vertical or forward Crane jMK
• All characters except for Blanka

Shakudan -> forward Crane jMP
• Zangief

Shakudan -> forward Crane jHK
• Vega

Crane jHK -> back Crane jMK
• All characters except for Ibuki, Makoto, Sakura, Chun-li, Dhalsim, Cammy, Blanka and Fei long

Crane jHK -> back Crane jMP

Crane jMK -> back Crane jMP
• Guy

Crane jHK -> forward jMK

Blanka is the only character that is immune to any trick of this kind.
I hope all this can be useful for your games!

Thanks for the infor, is there a video that shows how it would look like when done correctly?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K23_W1UU4PY I only found some examples with Sakura…

Nice. So it seems like a jumping meaty followed by a jumping crane MK would be the over all best bet :slight_smile:

I wouldn’t do this vs gen if he has super stocked.

Also most people call these “instant overheads”

Or Fuzzy Guard?

Oh ya, forgot it was called that as well.
