A while ago AcidicEnema asked me to post some LP flip setups while we were discussing the Zangief matchup. It is known that all Zangief’s reversals are throwable, but I’ve heard somewhere that if you do u+lariat it makes lariat unthrowable. However I still need to try that.
Here are some setups that come to my mind (they work on characters that get up normally)
c.mk -> immediately whiff st.lp -> LP flip
forward throw -> 2x dash forward, slight walk forward -> lp flip
foward throw (in corner) -> backdash, whiff c.mp, wait a tiny bit -> lp flip
hk tatsu in corner after hozanto/ff chain -> lp flip immediately (if they do quick getup) – however note that the timing can be screwed if the opponent delays the quick getup
ex tatsu in corner after hozanto/ff chain -> walk back a tiny bit -> (opp does quick getup) lp flip
U1 (corner, not sure about midscreen) -> dash forward -> lp flip
These are the LP setups that came to my mind. Obviously the timing to land them isn’t that easy so you’ll need to try them a couple of times in practice mode to learn the proper timings. If someone knows more, please post.
I still haven’t found a reliable setup after backthrow. From what I’ve tested it seems impossible to meaty them from it, maybe my timing was that off every time lol.
I don’t know how many people know this, but if you’ll telegraph your meaty flip setups too much, they can avoid them by lust pressing some buttons (c.lk, c.lp, c.mk whatever) and the flip simply won’t grab them.
