What REALLY makes Akuma Broke?


Actually, it’s pretty standard. It’s basic CPS-1 stuff that you can not punish those after jumping over a projectile. The difference is you whiff the SRK entirely in CPS-1 SF2. It must be used in such situations (when they can’t move) because you get countered by all characters if you jump in honestly from that distance and they are free to move.


Yes this is true, but there are some key differences between Akuma and O.Ryu. Primarily, Akuma’s far Roundhouse and far Forward are much better than O.Ryu, the blue hitbox on his RH is smaller and the red hitbox on his Forward is bigger.

Also Akuma’s startup on his fireballs are almost invincible (the blue hitbox is the same size but is much farther back), he can actually use it as a reversal to avoid some meaty attacks like Zangief’s far Short.


I better start putting more miles on my akuma.


damm, nigga is so broken he has CvS2 far invencible-tip RH PLUS an invencible st. forward and an ass broken fireball too…


Is that his HDR version? I thought HDR classic Akuma didn’t have a super meter?

If so, THAT’S Sirlin’s idea of a balanced Akuma? LOL.


That is the hdr version.
But here is ST



And Fireball start


One of the many HDR f’up includes giving shin akuma’s normals to playable akuma …
Ganelon talked about that sometime ago.
Shin akuma is the one that you played when you get all the perfects etc. He has double air fireballs


That standing far jab is pretty absurd. I did look for Akuma hitboxes in the wiki.


Still have to work on them… I finally got the time… but no motivation.


Been there. That’s why HDR Akuma didn’t get outlines on my site.


his st mk is insane, as if his dp wasnt broken enough


We’ve had time to learn how to fight against Akuma and fight as Akuma over 19 years. Let’s have Akuma unbanned


I just had a good set against akuma and and went 50/50


Why not make Akuma unbanned in next ST tournament?


Are you serious?




So, does anyone know why Akuma was banned in HSF2?


I believe that a group of people jumped the gun and banned Akuma prematurely. If people are worried about akuma’s dizzy properties in ST then here is the solution: If an akuma player dizzies opponent then he/she does nothing until opponent recovers. Akuma should be unbanned in all HSF2 AE events because there are stronger characters in that game.


I think most people don’t really care because HSF2 sucks…


Born2SPD, what about testing an unbanned Akuma in offline events…
