Quick notes: HK Stomp is a terrible meaty. It’s 0 on block and pushes you well out of command throw distance while a Potemkin Bustered (HCB then Forward) Command Throw tends to connect after a st.mk meaty and if said meaty hits you get more out of it. The only time you should be using it is off a HP air reset where you cancel the HP and get an automatic meaty; the idea is that you’re getting more damage off the reset than a jab or medium would give but a worse setup. When in V-Trigger it’s even better as it’s +3 on block which lets you throw out a cr.mp and beat anything they press. But if you have time to do a meaty stomp, you have time to do a meaty st.lk which is the god meaty.
Off a connected HK Stomp you have a few choices.
Close: HP DP, EX DP, EX Stomp, CA. I prefer EX Stomps here as while it trades a little damage for stun over EX DP the positioning is a million times better as it drops them at your feet but EX DP does have better corner carry. CA is of course there for loads of damage
Mid range: EX DP, EX Stomp, CA. Basically you lose out on your meterless followup here.
Tip: CA only.
Corner: Same options as before, but swap MP DP for HP DP as it does more damage (the first hit of the HP DP doesn’t connect). You can freely EX DP as well thanks to them being stuck in the corner so there isn’t much reason to EX Stomp here.
