What is a fake cross up?


#1

I’m studying some strategies for fighting certain characters with my character. The word fake cross-up is near a certain move.

I found the word fake cross-up with other character’s videos on google search but haven’t found out exactly what a fake cross-up is yet.

Self analysis of it based on the vocabulary I would think you do one more then switch to another but want to make sure that is the case?

A fake cross up is just a jump in that looks like a cross up but hits on the same side.


#3

Pretty sure It’s the same thing as an “ambiguous crossup”, in that it doesn’t hit crossup but looks like it.

An ambiguous cross-up or ambiguous jump-in would be a jump in that looks like it might hit in front. Or maybe the back. You don’t know, that’s why it’s ambiguous.

My bad. I was basing off of commentators always using ambiguous to refer to moves that always seem to hit the front but look like cross-ups. maybe it’s just a coincidence none of the “ambiguous” moves I saw crossed up. Thanks for clarifying.
