Raiden Moveset and Attributes



Raiden Moveset and Attributes

And once more from Majestros:

"Discuss the character’s entire moveset here, including normal moves, special moves, super moves, and all the other miscellaneous stuff like counter attacks, rolls, dodge attacks, jumps, and throws.

Also list attributes such as dizzy count, lifebar points, character size and special hitbox properties."

Frame Data:

[Edit to Command move, thx to RagingStormX]

Frame Data:

For projectiles, * indicates when a projectile is released. Note, sometimes i got lazy, listed projectiles as something like 14/26, assume projectile released on frame 15 in this case.
x/x/o refers to cancellability of a move, is it rapid fire move/special cancellable/super cancellable?
Moves with damage 1100, 1000 indicate damage varies according to when the move hits, like 1100 up close, 1000 far.
x,x/o,x/o,o refers to cancellability of moves, e.g. can cancel into special only on close hit, but cancels into super fine on either close or far hit.

Moves 1000+400, have a first hit of 1000, and 2nd hit of 400.
Cancellability written in the form: x+x/o+x/o+o, where the first symbol indicates cancellability of the 1st hit, and the second symbol indicates the cancellability of the second hit.
So the described move is not rapid fire on either hit, cancels into specials on only the first hit, and cancels into a super on either hit.

Note’s on /'s and +'s and :'s
/'s indicate a change from startup/recovery to a hit, a + indicates more recovery, or in the case of hits, another hit becoming active immediately after the previous hit.
[Edit] :'s now used for super startup, to match Buktooth’s standard.
:'s separate the startup frames before and after the super flash freeze for supers.

Note, sometimes use your judgement when reading a move. Some moves that clearly don’t hit, like athena’s teleport, obviously don’t hit. 17/12/14 refers to 17 frames of startup, 12 frames of teleporting, and 14 frames of recovery. Until I can get around to revising all my work and including full notes to all the moves that need’em, well use your own judgement.
Counters tend to be listed in the form [14/25] or [3/14/25]
[14/25] generally means the counter is active from frame 0, stays out for 14, has 25 frames of recovery.
[3/14/25] counter has 3 frames of startup, counter active for 14, 25 frames of recovery if whiffed.

for supers, [4:5/13/11] means 4 frames of startup before flash, 5 startup after flash, 13 active hit frames, 11 recovery.
4/5+3+3/13, means 4 frames startup, 5 active hit frames, followed immediately by next hit for 3 frames, followed immediately by next hit for 3 frames, then 13 frames of recovery.

Some air moves, stay active or keep recovering until they land. This is indicated writing land in a slot where there would be a number.
Move has 14 frames of startup, hits till landing, 13 frames of recovery while landing.
Move has 14 frames of startup, 5 active hit frames, then is recovering till lands, then needs 13 more frames to recover.

Since the notation for the frame data is so long, for this move
I’ll use *'s to denote hitting frames.

Lvl 1: 2600
frames 1-9, 32-44 full body invincible
Lvl 2: 3800
frames 1-15, 68-80 full body invincible,
Lvl 3: 6600
frames 1-23, 98-110 full body invincible.

13 F of full body invincibility during 16 frames of startup
before the final hit.


Thank you sooo much. I am getting into raiden (King, Raiden, Mai), and there is so little in the forums about him. He seems to be the kind of character you really need to know some stuff with in order to even have a chance of winning with. Thanx :tup:

Who cares what tier he is, he’s a wrestler damn it! j/k


Raiden low tier. I use him in S-groove he’s pretty dope.


Command Move(s):
Stamp Kick:
df+RH: 1400 +2/+2 block mid, CANNOT be parried(!) x/x/x

That’s wrong buddy, I wish though. You parry the moved by tapping forward. Great work with the frame data, I’m going to put more up myself when I get time.
