A thread for Jun players to discuss partner pros and cons for our yo-yo swinging demolition expert. Like most partner threads, the purpose of this is to find the best styles of play for individual players by sharing assist character strategies. To break the ice, I’ll start.
Ryu- Ryu seems to have good synergy with just about anyone in TvC. Shinku Hadoken is one of the most versatile supers in the game, and especially so for Jun. Any combo of Ryu’s that ends in QCB+C canceled into his Shinku Hadoken leaves most characters in the perfect distance range to be team hyper combo’ed by any one of Jun’s supers, with her 3 bar super (phoenix attack) leading into at least 25,000 if performed in a full combo. Their assists compliment each other nicely, equaling great ranged pressure if either uses their QCF+(any attack) followed by a slightly delayed assist. If caught without blocking, the opponent takes a hadoken and now has a bomb on them for later detonating, which isn’t bad considering your not up close. Aside from the fact that Ryu has more than likely an impossible time team hyper combo’ing into any of Jun’s supers, this team has become my personal main favorite.
Zero- Zero’s Z saber hyper combo (his 3 bar special) loves any character whose own hyper combo can keep them still and level enough to hit with it. Even though Zero is capable of combo’ing into it himself, Jun’s QCF special is an interesting choice. If you have the 4 bars, combo’ing into Jun’s QCF special will put 4 bombs on your target, but before she finishes and they explode (where she says Bingo!) bring out Zero’s Z Saber special, (Dragon punch notation) and you get nice damage with the added bonus that those bombs stay undetonated. Just don’t let Jun get hit and you can detonate them later on, always very nice. Assist wise, like Ryu above, any one of Zero’s projectiles can be used in delayed conjunction with Jun’s assist for ranged pressure or zoning, but Zero’s assist for Jun would be mostly for combo additions, of which I haven’t explored anything specific yet.
I’ve been experimenting with Batsu and Ippatsuman with Jun, but haven’t come up with much yet. Feel free to post your pros and cons with match ups you guys have made with Jun. Combo-specific match ups are great to, if you have a particular match-up whose assists help you perform specific combos. Share your ideas
