FeiLong Thread


I’ve been toying around with Fei for years now, and recently decided to start playing him “for real” as his style fits with my M Bison playstyle of increasing pressure, poking and ticking etc.

Fei’s stand HK is awesome against Gief.

He can’t get very close, it beats his jump ins.

chp can link to itself and does a lot of dizzy for something you’ll be using a lot of anyway.

Your main problem will be against fireballs, but if you can get in range, you can trade for bigger damage or stuff them. One jump in can lead to a big combo that can make up for all the fireballs you’re going to eat. So can a knockdown and some meaty action.

Baiting with rekkas is the key imo. His pokes don’t have much range besides the fierces, and even then the Rekka is a better poke in a lot of situations.

May post more later- thunderstorm cutting off my post prematurely. ;p


Chicken Wing Help:

For those of you fucking up the motion in the Chicken Wing, here’s how I do it:

Since it is almost a 360, and whether or not you’ve played a grappler in ST, they seem to work differently than in other games. Logic dictates that you spin for the 360 as fast as possible, and this works in games with some leeway. Unfortunately, ST has very little leeway. My friend Craig, T Hawk player, was having some trouble with ticking into grabs, so I suggested he do them slower and make sure the points hit, it worked.

The chicken kick is the same, if you slow down your motions slightly and know when you’ve contacted all the points your success rate will increase.

Note: I’m not saying to do the motions SLOW, I’m suggesting slowing it down from how you’d do the motion in newer games. Hope this helped.


Someone’s memorized their AE strategy guide! :wink: j/k

Actually, the far standing Mk it is a very good AA in addition to the HK.

Comes out faster, doesa good amount of life. Offers protection in front of his head. The HK does not. Mk beats all of Geifs jump ins (at the right distance). *edit

Don’t worry, I’ll post a pic to support my claim! :cool:


Yeah the AE guide has some pretty good stuff, I haven’t had mine in about a year though. I’m glad to know about the standing MK stuffing some more of his moves.


Practice his s.hp and c.hp meaty attacks. I panic when I play good fei’s that are like meaty s.hp, walk forward, s.hp, chicken kick, rekka, rekka, I expect a third one but it turns out he just did the walk forward kick to gain more space, continuing the pressure… Shit like that. Get the chicken kick motion down. That move is raep.


Use O. Fei :slight_smile: He’s way fun


Ask me anything and I’ll let you know : )


Is it possible to synthesize excited bromide in an argon matrix? :lovin:


Yes…sigh… :rolleyes: Any True Genius would know, it?s an excimer, frozen in its excited state ? As soon as you apply a field, you couple to a state that is radiatively coupled to the ground state.

…duh :confused:


^^^If I could rep you x2000, I would. Anyone who notices my reference is a newfound friend :rofl:


I found some really easy links with Fei, I’m kinda new to st so they are probably useless and most likely already known.

You can do these after cross up, mk.

close s.mk or s.mp, s.mp links 2 and they are dizzy
close s.mk, c.mp links a little weird.
close s.mk or s.mp, tap forward ,close s.hp links for awesome damage, works mid screen but a lot easier in the corner, good for setting up the chicken block string I guess, you can also go into rekka’s but it’s difficult.

Just trying to contribute.


I’m working on a video for Fei long, more or less it is an in depth fact about some of his pressure strings, vs certain characters, and his strenghts and weaknesses.

-----Crossover Deep MK---------
basic crossup, if done to early the kick will simply whiff, if done deep, linking into a standing foward, then fierce, or a jab into Rekka, or a standing fierce into super gives you an open opportunity to controls pace. Some of the combos are as followed.

Crossover MK, S. Strong, S. Fierce
Crossover MK, S. Jab, Rekka
Crossover MK, S. Fierce, Short Dragon Kick
Crossover MK, S, fierce, Super Rekka
Crossover MK, C. Jab, Rekka.
Crossover MK, S, Strong, S, Strong.
Crossover MK, S, Strong, S, Fierce, Rekka

--------- Crossover with Super---------------
Crossover MK, S. Strong, S. Fierce. S REKKA, TK Foward/Roundhouse! (Sets up in corner)
Crossover MK, S, Fierce, S REKKA, TK Foward/roundhouse- Three hit CW
Crossover MK, S, Jab, C. Jab, S REKKA! TK Foward.
Crossover MK, S Jab, S Jab, Rekka! TK Foward.
----------Pressure Strings----------------------
Most of these strings require Fei long to be in deep, or nearly over the opponent. IF DONE WRONG! Fierce punch will whiff, resulting in a big fuck up. If most of you don’t understand how the Rekka strings work it’s simple. Jab Rekka can be done three times, at close range, pushing Fei back and away from Sweep range, SRK Range, and have enough time to recover and block. Utilizing this will help build a stronger poke/ground game for fei. People usually get confused with which button to push, which pressure string to use . . . My best advice, one that doesn’t keep you in close range. A standing Fierce is quick and can be utilized for different situations, but for now we will use this as a start for keeping pressure. Standing Fierce can be canceled into a Rekka. Standing Fierce into Jab Rekka, is safe distance, doing a fierce rekka after the jab will push Fei Long foward allowing him to keep pressure, after this fierce rekka finish this with a jab. If you have problems hit confirming the standing fierce and find yourself getting punished, stick to these simple patters.
------ Pressure Strings
S. Fierce, Jab Rekka, Fierce Rekka, Jab Rekka- PRO(Safe Distance, Can block incoming attacks) Con(If done wrong can be countered quickly, avoiding sweeps such as bison slide kick and the blanka ball requires a fast flame kick to reverse such attacks)

Jump In deep With Jab, Fei must literally be over the other character while performing the jump, otherwise the fierce will not connect but execute a handshake instead!!

Jump in Jab, C. Jab, S. Fierce, Jab Rekka, Fierce Rekka, Jab Rekka.- Can’t Combo, Just for pressure.
Jump in Jab, S. Strong, S. Fierce, Jab Rekka, Fierce Rekka, jab Rekka.
Jump in Jab, C. Jab, C. Roundhouse.
Jump in Jab, S. Jab, S. Jab, Jab Rekka, Jab Rekka.
Jump in Jab, S, Strong S. Fierce (HANDSHAKE!)- This string will easily push fei out of any risky counter situation, very safe poke and does major damage of hit.

Chicken wing patters, Mixups, Spacing, utilizing the super, Reversals, Tick throws, VS CHARACTERS Will be in covered in my upcoming video.


That sounds awesome. Whats your status on that?


With my college and my job I spend most of my spare time working on the video. So far I’ve covered pressure strings, combos, ticks, and as far as vs goes. Ryu,Ken,Gief,Thawk,Blanka,Sim,Guile,Cammy, And Rog. I still need Sagat,Bison,Claw,Chun, and Honda. If you want, I can email you the transcript of the text I have for pressure strings/mixups/ticks/Super/Chickenwing/Just PM me your S/N on AIM or MSN.


I actually have trust in you, that you are capable of making a decent Fei faq. Discussing combos, cross-ups, mix-ups, pokes, ticks, rekka ken pressure strings, chicken wing trapping, flame kick set-ups, and super usage can all be pretty easy. But something I don’t trust you on is match-ups. By your posts in other threads it’s clear you don’t have your match-up knowledge down pact.


ok, so heres a oppertunity to generate some match up discussion (after all, match ups are what fighting games are based on…), so corner trap, what match ups did he get right and which did he get wrong and why? exarkun, if we could get a rebuttal?


Here is a list of Fei’s good/fair/bad match-ups.




Exarkun said that Fei has good match-ups against Guile and Dhalsim which is false. Every match in ST is completely winnable, but you can’t deny the fact that some characters simply have a few advantages over other characters. I gave many reasons to back up my claim when I said Dhalsim/Guile have the advantage of Fei, while the only thing he had to back up his claim was his lone single opinion. This is why I don’t completely trust Exarkun to make the match-up part of a faq.


could you link me to the post where u guys r talking about this? im interested in seeing why u believe this so.


It’s in the counter picking thread.


Corner Trap, if your going to come in here and not trust my experience to your one year experience go ahead. There are loop holes in every match, every match you can counter, just because you can’t focus on a characters main game doesn’t mean he will win/lose. I just see it that some characters have advantages, it’s up to the player to come up with the creativity to overcome these obstacles. You can ask anyone on the online play forums how my fei is. If you have not played me, then don’t judge me with assumptions of my experience please, it just doesn’t make sense.
