Well again I don’t know about hdr but in ST Honda has the worst super in the game (despite what s-kill said while commentating during a tournament match-- and it was very funny when he said that but it’s actually Honda’s that’s worse (beyond hitboxes- other properties contribute to Honda’s being worse than Blanka’s, strategically, which we don’t need to get into here but happy to discuss that too). Strictly in terms of disjointedness (red being the furthest in front of blue):
E Honda Hitbox
most of his normals look to me to have more disjointedness than his super. Pause and watch from 4:01 into the video. He looks invincible (no red, but no blue) until 4:06 or so-- THAT frame with the one big red box and no blue at all IS very big. I could be wrong- the boxes are made translucent so I might be missing a blue box or focusing on only one frame of a given move where there is no blue box, but a two or three frames later there might be one I missed.
At 2:33 he starts his headbutt regular special move which is comparable to his own super’s (only his JAB one, not the others have that box).
Blanka Hitbox vid paused at 3:51
- his super starting up it has a bounce and with the shadows of the super, it’s hard to see if there is any blue box or where exactly the first blue box appears in his super. Even the red box is light due to it being translucent so hard to say exactly if I’m looking at red or “purple” (red overlapping some blue box).
At 4:00 in Blanka’s super, it seems the blue (purple/overlapped) is only(?) in the center, well soveirgnly surrounded by all red on all sides. And in his front side, the red extends very far past the center blue core box, much more than Honda’s super. It also has significantly much more red on the top side compared to Honda’s top side.
Technically I guess this isn’t “disjointed” (?) because the red in these moves extends so far back but that’s not too relevant I guess because it’s all gravy-- the critical point I want to know about is how much red extends past how much blue (and what types of moves they are, as mentioned it seems jabs get away with this the most).
Again though, it’s hard to see exactly because they made the boxes translucent instead of clear borders of the boxes like in Yoga Bible-- it looks like many frames in this super have his head and/or feet blue boxes rotate around the center within the red. Even in those particular, specific frames though, that is “worse case” and still comparable to Honda’s disjointedness of most-red-in-front-of-blue.
btw you can click and drag the youtube vid’s cursor thumb thing that progresses along the red bar under the video to basically where you want it while the vid is paused, also I bet there’s a way to contruct a url to start youtube vid from a specific time into the video.
Re: Dictator’s headstomp-- again, strategically, this one move can definitely be used to good effect but I think it’s mostly just in the controlled flight mode ability of it and I suspect it doesn’t extend very high (so maybe just a bar along his feet, but he can control it easily). By the same token though, that’s why I suspected vega’s cheap wall dive where he speads out his arms (original ST) to have some ridiculous hitbox properties, but maybe it’s just in other properties and factors of the move like flight controlability and speed.
