sup yall kenshin here.
my fav ggxx character is johnny. this man is the definition of pimp. he has speed, reach, power, and something that most fighting game characters lack these days…style. but surprisingly i dont see that many johnny fans let alone hear about them. plus you dont see many people post strategies about johnny. in this thread you can post strategies and techniques that you like to use. i will start it off.
johnny is a great character to learn how to master. his only flaws are that he is tall some of his attacks cant hit short characters, and some of his moves have long recovery time. but if used right his positives can cancle out the negatives. one thing you have to do to be a successful johnny user is to know when to use your mist finner. thats johnnys main offensive technique and you should use it in many of your combos.
remember that johnny cant run but has a short dash. so use your devine blade to travel across the ground at fast, far distances. but dont underestimate johnnys dash. its great for doing rush combos. more on his dash later on. also know when to use the glistering gold. this technique powers up your mist finner up to 3 levels. the 3rd level will result in a 10 hit mist finner attack. another important note, the level 2 mist finer is great because if it hits then ur opponent cant air recover and you are free to hit them without the worry of air recoveries. also use the baccus sigh when needed cause it makes your mist finner unblockable.
now its time for some combos. johnny is a powerful character who has speedy attacks that are also powerful. so here are some combos i like to use. im only gonna list a few of them for now. ill post more later on.
cp, cp, cp, k, hs, glistering gold, hs, mist finner low, divine blade. an ok combo to use. i mainly use it for style points since i hit my opponent with the devine blade while they are falling to the ground.
jump hs, p, p, k, hs, glistering gold, dash, k, hs, glistering gold, dash, hs, mist finner. note that this combo works best if ur opponent is cornered or near the corner. this combo this good damage because the mist finner is the level 3 one. also good for style points.
ill post some other combos and techniques later. i will talk about things like air combos and his power techniques. but for now i want to hear yall strats and comments. untill then…later.
