Ryu's fake fireball.


#1

What’s the point of this move?


#2

To fake out people with mechanical reaction towards fireball traps so that Ryu can keep the advantage since the opponent can’t screw up his trap timing.


#3

to hit people when they across the screen…


#4

Lol. They are gonna roast you.

Its to trick you into acting as if a fireball was coming. IIRC the “fake fireballs” usually have faster recovery time and it puts you in a position to trip them up.

For instance, if you have a habit of trying to jump in with a short everytime I throw a fireball, I can throw a fake one . .cause you to jump and then tag you in the air with an anti-air or something. In theory anyway.


#5

jump in hk, c. mk, fake fireball, walk in throw.

corner a person, fake, fake, real, fake, real, fake, walk in throw or let them jump in for srk.

it’s pretty useful once you actually see it in action.


#6

Ryu sounds like a bully. lol


#7

can the use of the fake fireball be any more obvious? closing this silly thread
