The first match of this video is going to be my reference for this, as I’m hoping it’ll help me make sense of all this to everyone. It’s really recent footage, so I thought it might be good instead of the outdated SBO stuff.
In RX’s footsies, I’m seeing him use his trade mark jump > instant headbutts. I’m finally starting to realize that he’s actually partitioning these headbutts from his whiffed moves earlier on. I’ll try to explain as best I can understand…
0:39 - RX jumps, instantly does a EX headbutt over ken, crossing up and throwing. This pretty much leads to him winning first round.
If I’m guessing right, he partitioned part of that charge from the backdash, right?
Unfortunately he goes on a rampage and ends the match without using this again, but I see him use it throughout the older SBO matches on a fairly consistent basis.
Sorry for the long winded start, but here’s the question: How’s he doing it? I’m thinking that he’s just charging up for .x seconds, hiding it inside his footsies, before jumping. Will this automatically partition any charge move when he lands? I’ve seen him do it from standing fierces and cr. mk. Since all of these moves have somewhat similar startup, the timing can be pretty similar for all of his whiffed normals?
Lemme know your thoughts, holes in my conclusion, etc etc. Thanks.
