Artificial unfly mode. Or fake unfly mode. Or semi-useless unfly mode. Whatever you wanna call it is fine. I’ve been keeping this to myself for quite a while, dunno why really, I’m kinda selfish. I keep a lot of engine anomalies to myself. But it’s not that big a deal, some of you prolly know this already.
Anyhoo, going back to the topic. Did you know there is a way to acquire unfly mode without EVER getting hit by anything? And yes I know that you can do specials/supers after unflying but this is different. This technique allows you to perform normal moves after unflying. And the best part is that you can nj all you want and it won’t deteriorate!
Ok, here’s how it works. First of all, your opponent has to be in stun the moment you enter fly mode. Either hitstun or blockstun is fine. Second, perhaps the biggest drawback, preventing this from being the discovery of the year and from making Sent beyond godlike, is that you cannot perform any action while in fly mode. If you do, then the “unfly mode” won’t be there after you unfly. Flying back and forth is fine. That’s about it on the explanation.
Here are some examples:
IM - (corner?) c.lk, c.lp xx fly, unfly, lk, u+hp, land, start infinite
Sent - c.lk, s.lp xx fly, unfly, lk (…sorry, thats the best I could come up with)
