Yun palm revived



Found a new bnb which utilizes the palm. Not as good as AE double palm but builds 1.2 meters and deals more dmg than another other BNB corner red focus I have seen.
I’m hoping somebody with more creativity than me can show me better variations of this old school tech.


Pretty sure this is character specific, try it on chun li in the corner to make sure. You can also do EX palm, lk dp, ultra 1 against ryu. Or lp shoulder>F+HP like your video.


It is character specific and sometimes the spacing is too finicky to be useful. I don’t know if anyone compiled a list but IIRC it also works against Viper and Zangief. Boxer too but the timing is weird (karapalm with fst.MK usually works.) You can do the same thing with EX Palm in some situations to go into MP Shoulder instead of LP Shoulder.


I just tested this out on the entire cast, with 4 alternative follow ups.

Red Focus Attack -> back dash -> immediate MP Palm, light shoulder, heavy lunge. Works on:
Decapre, Ryu, Ken, Ibuki, Seth, Gouken, Akuma, Sakura, Oni, Elena, Dhalsim, Abel, C. Viper, Bison, Cody (tight), Rolento, Poison, Evil Ryu, Vega, Fei Long, T. Hawk, Adon, Rose, Hugo.

Doesn’t work on:
Honda, Makoto, Dudley, Gen, Dan, Yun, Juri, Chun Li, Sagat, Cammy, Deejay, Guy, Hakan, Blanka, Zangief, Rufus, Fuete, Balrog, Yang,

Alternate Follow ups to RFA back dash

(Alternate) MP Palm -> LP Lunge works on:
Honda, Rufus,

**(alternate) Ex Palm -> ( or upkicks) *CL.MK can lead to jump cancel dive kick mixup:
Decapre, Ryu, Honda, Ken, Ibuki, Dudley, Gen, Sakura, Oni, Elena, Dhalsim, Abel (delay, C. Viper, Bison, Sagat, Deejay, Rolento, Poison, Evil Ryu, Guile, Rufus, Vega, Fei Long, T. Hawk, Adon, Rose, Hugo.

(Alternate) Ex Palm -> Light Upkicks (1 hit) -> Light Lunge:
Decapre, Ryu, Ken, Ibuki, Akuma, Gen, Oni, Elena, Abel, Bison, Sagat, Deejay, Poison, Evil Ryu, Guile, Fei Long, T. Hawk, Adon, Hugo.

(Alternate) Ex Palm -> Light shoulder (crosses under) -> Heavy Lunge:

im so stealing this tech, TY Mr.ALLERO & Mr.TheBest, will try to use it tonight at WNF


I’ll make a spreadsheet that will be easier to read at some point, but it’s a start lol


Red Focus Attack -> dash back -> MP Palm, U1, Heavy Lunge works on:
Decapre, Ryu, Ken, Honda, Ibuki Seth, Gouken, Akuma, Sakura, Rufus

Doesn’t work on:
Makoto, Dudley, Gen, Dan

updating as i go along… assuming this works on everybody that the first combo works on though (and honda, rufus as well *confirmed)


You know you can just do red focus -> dash forward -> hp palm, U1, heavy lunge on probably everyone


Perhaps? you tell me. I’m actually testing these out, not saying probably.


You can do that against everyone in the corner. Unless they changed Palm from 2012. Back dashing (meaty palm) makes the link a hell of a lot easier though.


ya i just tryed it on 5 characters, the ultra timing very’s it seems landing it on rufus is super tight, but super easy on cammy.


back dash palm doesn’t work on everybody, fyi


Red Focus Attack -> back dash -> immediate MP Palm, light shoulder, heavy lunge, does work on Yun, Sagat, Juri, Dudley, Fuerte, and Yang.
A few more of those characters that it doesn’t work on like Makoto, you can do the alternate MP Palm, Light Lunge ender on. I don’t remember all of them.


Hmm, I couldn’t get the palm to land on those guys at all. Maybe it’s a lot more strict?


I don’t know how much tighter it is because I never tried it on the characters that you said it worked on.


That’s so good that it builds you all that meter back.


Shoutouts to cuongster using the tech in semi finals valencia. The meter build is the reason why this is just a much stronger alternative to dash forward palm lunge
