Akhiko gives no shits about his own persona, and beats the shit out of other personas when people call them out.
I gotta say this guy is going to be one tough mother fucker to fight. Especially with 10000 health at his disposal.


#3

Lol your right about his persona. Haha he only has two moves!! Strictly relies on kicking ass


#4

I started doing his trials, but does anybody know if his qcb a (air) is safe?


#5

I don’t think so. I did it in a match and got punished. I think all his specials leave u open for punish.


#6

Gotta do that "a b c " If u miss (waste half bar )


#7

Nope. As far as I know its VERY unsafe.


#8

Only safe if you do boomerang hook after or sweep.


#9

Gottnoskill stop playing my characters. :lol:


#10

Got to play the characters right to make them yours. :wink:


#11

So sweep>jump>qcb a or b> qcf qcf a works ??


#12

afaik sweep is not jump cancellable.


#13

What’s afaik ?


#14

as far as I know


#15

Oh thanks doc !!


#16

So, since no one has made a thread to represent this package of masculinity compact into 2d animation, I decided to do it.
For now, let’s just discuss what are his best setups, normal moves, safe and unsafe moves, etc.


#17

Oh god my eyes. You spelled Caesar wrong.
Edit: FIRST!


#18

#19

holy crap, I didn’t see that. And I went through it twice two >.>


#20

which is a better set up?
Jump in dash far C or jump in dash close B?
i use both, but sometimes I find myself wishing I had done the other one.
