First playable fighting game character to have a fireball reflect move?


#1

Not sure who gets that honor.

I know Shredder had one in Tournamnet fighters , which came out in late 1993(snes) iirc.

Or was it someone else?

thanks


#2

World Heroes 2? It was a universal move for all characters.


#3

I’m thinkin the monk dude from Power Instinct.


#4

Athena in KOF94?


#5

Yun in SF3?


#6

Larcen from Eternal Champions?


#7

when did yamazaki get his?
spinal had one too sorta


#8

^ Fatal Fury 3??? :confused:


#9

Did Yuri’s Saiha reflect in AOF2?


#10

A1 Rose?


#11

Power Rangers (the Genesis version, by Banpresto) had a universal fireball reflect, but I think TMNT: TF was released a bit earlier.


#12

I see what you did there…


#13

I was going to say AOF2 as well. But I think more than one character in that game had a reflect move. I remeber always hating some guy for that.


#14

Middlekick is correct.

Everybody in World Heroes 2 can reflect projectiles by Just Defending them. That game came out in mid-93, which predates everything else mentioned here.

WH2 actually was the first series to do a lot of things…its originality is highly underrated.

WH2 had those seesaw lifebar matches… bloody things went on FOREVER.


#16

Eternal Champions ?
Pretty sure someone had a fireball reflect… and it came out on Genesis around 93-94 if I remember well


#17

edit: bah playable characters… i lose


#18

Oh yeah, Eiji had a reflect move as well.

Guess the answer is found. The first time I saw it was Killer Instinct and Fulgore could reflect them. In matches you could keep reflecting them back and forth, seems kind of silly now looking back at it.
