An important note: The tables are based on Arcade version H of the game. The console version contains a lot of stealth changes, most of it are not yet known, so don’t be surprised if you encounter something that contradicts the info here, but most of it should still be relevant.

Top 15 moves:

Akuma Contributors: Toko
Move command Hit level Startup frame Block frame
f,d,d/f+1 _ f,d,d/f+2 Sm _ Sm Sm Sm i10 _ i11 -24
“Shoryuken”. Its i10 light version is one of Akuma’s primary launchers (with meter), while heavy Shoryu deals more damage itself and has full invulnerability 8 frames in. Use 1,d,f,d/f+1 to punish -10 or worse on block moves. Many of Akuma’s attacks can be cancelled into Shoryuken.
Light Shoryu has a high crush window.
qcb+3 _ qcb+4 h _ Sm,h h h i15_i10 -15 _ -14
“Tatsu”. A key special move in Akuma’s combos but not very useful otherwise. qcb+3 links into Light Shoryu on hit.
Its air version gives frame advantage on block and is overall a decent way of getting in thanks to its tracking properties.
qcf+1 _ qcf+2 Sm i19 -13
“Hadouken”. Helps Akuma hold his ground. qcf+1 can be focus cancelled (qcf+1,1+2~f,f) to get frame advantage on block (+5) or a guaranteed launch on hit (+15).
f,d,d/f+3 _ 4->3_4_n various ? various
“Demon Flip”. The stance itself goes over a lot of attacks (many mids and highs included); certain attacks can be cancelled into DFLIP to keep the pressure going. ‘3’ is a homing attack, ‘4’ is a linear + on block divekick, ‘1+3_2+4’ is an unbreakable throw, and no input during DFLIP gives a knockdown low. The latter two options are supposed to be used very sparingly (both are very unsafe if ducked).
1+2 h varies varies
Power Crush with unique properties: can be cancelled by inputting f,f or b,b either before it hits or after. Charges up whenever 1+2 is held down: the move becomes a NH launcher with level 2 charge and an unblockable launcher with max charge.
1,1 h,h i10 -3
NCc, second hit can be cancelled into Tatsu. It’s advised to input 1,1~qcb every time and tap 3 whenever a counter hit is detected in order to get a combo.
d/f+1,1 m,h i13 -3
Akuma’s i13 punish, gives +6 on hit, doesn’t jail. A solid mid poke. d/f+1,2 (mid,mid, -13 on block) serves as a mixup.
4,3 h,h i14 -5
NC, Homing, wall splat, huge advantage on hit, gives S! if the second hit lands as CH. Second hit is duckable. Can be used as a -14 punish thanks to good range.
b+1 h i14 -14
Fast high launcher. Cancel it into DFLIP 3 to get a combo. Good hitbox.
d/f+2,1 m,m i16 -17
Akuma’s version of Twin Pistons. Guaranteed after a deep jump in 2 or 4. Solid block- and whiff-punish.
WR3 _ f,f,f+3 m (TJ) i22? +4
A solid running attack. Has low crush frames, hits grounded.
d+3 l i15 -11
Fast low poke, can be cancelled into Akuma’s special attacks. d+3,qcb+3 is NC on clean hit. d+3~DFLIP is a good way to pressure your opponent.
d+4 l i17 -26
Akuma’s knockdown sweep. High crushes early on, has decent range, can be performed out of crouch.
WS2 m i15 -15
The other half of the full crouch mixup. Demon Flip cancellable (which makes certain punish attempts whiff).
Forward Jump 4 m ? +4~+7
Very good pressure tool, although linear. Gives +14 on hit (+17 if it hits close to the ground), which means a free b+1 into full combo.
Alisa Contributors: MmickeysS, GoldLeopard
Move command Hit level Startup frame Block frame
b+1 m i15 -5
A safe mid with good tracking that leaves her in FC and can be used in combos.
d/b+3 l i16 -12
Fast, good range, good tracking and instant high crush that it’s difficult to punish from maximum range.
4 h i13 -5
Extremely fast and homing counter hit launcher that wall splats and it’s safe. Used to discourage opponents from pressing buttons.
b+3 m i20 -8C
Powerful, safe, damaging, homing knockdown with good range, has slight high crush frames at start up.
WR2 _ f,f,f+2 h i13(16~) +4
Fast pressure tool with a guaranteed follow-up on hit for easy massive damage. Alternate it with WR3,4 and/or f,f,f+3,4 for one of her strongest most annoying mix-ups.
WR3,4 _ f,f,f+3,4 m,m i18(21~) -7
Safe, high damage knock down and wall splat that’s used to discourage opponents from ducking her WR2.
d/f+1 m i13 -6
Fast mid poke with a chunky hitbox and good follow-ups.
d/f+4 m i12 -7
Another fast mid poke with good range and admirable tracking used when pressuring opponents.
FC d/f+1+2 l l (2 hits) i23 i33 -11
Her best low poke that’s good plus frames on hit. Can be mixed up with WS1+2 thanks to their similar animations.
WS1+2 m i20 -8
Safe mid knockdown that gives a guaranteed follow-up on hit. Hold down 1+2 for 3 different levels of charge that become safer and more damaging the longer you hold.
f+3,2 h,h i14 -2
Now her best i14 punisher and one of the few to get a 14f launcher, auto screwattack launcher. Also has a mid option.
d+3 l i23 -19
Long range low-crushing low that gives her access to her d/b+1 stance and FC mixups.
DES 2 m m m (3 hits) i20 -6 (?)
Safe high crushing launcher from her DES stance, hits grounded. New to T7 she has a just frame DES 2:1 that takes you out of DES so you can do a normal combo that does more damage.
u/f+3,2 m,m i20 -14
Hit confirmable and highly damaging hopkick. Can be hit confirmable to uf+3, 3+4 that transitions into fly for mixups on block (careful with Jack, he can option select float for a juggle on block).
1,1 h,h i10 -3
High damage 10f punisher, 2nd hit delayable that knds on ch for guaranteed follow up, can go into DES stance by pressing 1+2 afterwards.
Asuka Contributors: CKT-Fergus
Move command Hit level Startup frame Block frame
f+2 m i17 -16
One of the strongest whiff punishers in the game, also an extremely easy input for what it is.
b+3 m i16 -19~-18
Strong keepout move, can be extremely awkward to punish and it gives Asuka a combo on normal hit. It has some high crush and low crush frames during the animation.
 d+3+4 l h (2 hits) i14 -6
An extremely fast CH launcher which also low crushes very early. One of the best panic moves in the game. Makes the opponent hesitate using lows or pressuring at – frames vs Asuka.
SS2 m i22 -9
An extremely evasive move that knocks down on hit. Very strong panic tool and was made safe in T7 from -12 in TTT2. Makes the opponent hesitate in pressuring Asuka.
d/b+3 l i21 -12
A ranged low that leaves the opponent in crouching at +4 meaning they cannot step one way. Very good to clip the opponent’s movement and harass them from range.
d+2 m i18 -4OC
A ranged mid that complements DB3. It’s a CH launcher that leaves the opponent in crouching with pushback on block and on hit, extremely good to control space with Asuka.
u/f+3 m i20 -3~-2
A CH ranged mid launcher that low crushes and has quick recovery. Very good as a keepout tool and interrupt the opponent’s approach.
d/b+4 l i22 -11
A high crushing low that’s 0 on hit, good to approach the opponent with and keep the pressure on upclose. Option to go into FC or not afterwards by holding ~d.
f+4 h i19 +3
A + on block homing high launcher. Really good to shut down people sidewalking Asuka, and to keep the advantage on block if you “guessed wrong” on their stepping.
f,f+3 m i20 -9
A homing mid with tons of range, good to keep people in check at a range.
d+1+2 l i20 -18
A knockdown low that guarantees a F2 at the wall and rage drive in open.
d/f+1 m i13 -3
A good mid poke to keep opponents in check, has a high CH followup and a mid CH launcher.
1 h i10 -2
A jab with tons of followups, low followups, mid follows with even more followups after that. Good to harass the opponent upclose.
WS1+2 m i21 -2
A CH launcher from crouching, can be cancelled with ~d and is good for closing the gap with the opponent. On CH, she gets an unscaled f2 for a LOT of damage.
f,f+1+2 (Rage Drive) m i18 +9
Uses up her rage, hits grounded so it’s guaranteed after moves like D1+2 (Very strong option) anywhere. Can be used as a damaging combo ender with RD into ff1 post screw.
Bob Contributors: @novriltataki
Move command Hit level Startup frame Block frame
1,2[1+2] h,h[m] i10 -3_-12
The occasional 1+2 starts a juggle on counter hit and scares the opponents from taking their turn after 1,2.
2,1[4] h,m[m] i10 -5_-2
The optional 4 ender works similar to the aforementioned 1,2,1+2, guarantees a B+3 on counter hit, but loses to sidestep instead of blocking. 2,1 can also be mixed with 1,d+4 for a -12 on block low.
d/f+1[2] m[m] i14 -3[-12]
Standard d/f+1. Anti-ssr. Occasionally you can do the 2nd, punishable hit.
d/f+2 m i15 -8
A safe counter hit launcher with good range. Anti-ssl.
u/f+3 m  i20 -13
Everybody needs a low crushing hopkick launcher. A bit slow to hit but has great range.
cd4,1+2 l i18 -28
Bob’s “big threatening low”. d/b+3+4,4 is similar but on hit grants +8f advantage instead of a knockdown.
SS1+2 m i15 -5
A fast mid that knocks down. Great in conjunction with the sidestep’s evasiveness. Also good for wallsplats.
d/b+3 l i20 -13
Bob’s best low poke is nothing spectacular, but it leaves him at +2 on hit.
WS2,1 m,m i14 -20
Bob’s fastest launcher can only be done from crouching. You can use this as instant while standing as well. Always confirm a whiff before inputting the 2nd hit. Example:
https://youtu.be/2kUYxFxOFjg?t=1034
f,f+2 m i15 -8
Bob’s advancing mid of choice for farther ranges, wallsplats and tracks to his left.
cd1 h i13 -2
Bob’s “electric”, good to advance after f,f+2 scares the opponents from crouching. Gets a juggle on counter hit.
b+2,2 m,h i13 -3
Hits fast and very low to the ground. This move is extremely useful against low profile stances (Ling, Eddy etc.), and in uncommon situations like capitalizing on backturned opponents with the full b+2244.
u/f+1+2 m i16 -12
Punishes far whiffs faster than the hopkick. Near the wall you can go for a high risk high reward mixup by mixing between the high and mid.
f,f+1+2 throw
Bob’s launcher 1+2 throw.
d+1 m 18~19 -11~-10
Ground hitting mid which has good tracking to both sides and good range, perfect to hit low stances like RLX, it also leaves Bob with lower hurtbox so jabs will whiff, so the opponent can only block punish it with crouch jabs if they even reach.
Bryan Contributors: Combot Oil Changer
Move command Hit level Startup frame Block frame
f,f+4 h i16~19 (17~) -11(?)~-8(?)s
Also known as “mach kick.”  High CH launcher, high damage quick homing move, important to keep opponents from stepping Bryan’s linear moves all day.
3+4 m i18 -8
Safe mid CH launcher, knocks down on normal hit.
f,b+2 h i14~i15 -7~-6
i14 launcher. Can launch moves other characters can’t.  Also referred to as “Jet Upper.”
You can cancel it from his taunt (1+3+4) to make it unblockable. (It’s extremely hard, so don’t shy away from canceling the taunt into faster moves instead.)
b+1 m i20~21 +3~+4
Mid CH launcher elbow that’s + on block. Can be used to pressure opponent.
f+3 m i16 0
Safe mid CH launcher knee.  The move is strong to use up close but don’t get too greedy.  The mid hitbox is quite “high” and while there is slight tracking, it’s not reliable.
qcb+3 l i19(21~) -13
Unseeable low with good tracking, damage and +4 on hit, allows user to continue pressuring on hit. CH gives guaranteed dash qcb+4, dash d+4, or dash d+3+4 followup.
qcb+2,4 m,h i15~16 (17~) -10~-7 OC (Second Hit)
-9~-8
(First hit)
A mid,high string, which has a very generous delay window between both hits.
The first hit anti-airs airborne opponents and has a surprisingly long hitbox.
Not actually hit-confirmable but whiff punishing is very easy by “whiff confirming.”
The 2nd hit is essentially mach kick so on hit gives free dash d+4(most reliable), dash d+3+4(a little less reliable but more damage than d+4), or dash qcb+4 (least reliable but does the most damage).
u+4 m i24~26 -5~-3
Safe mid launcher, low crush. Hard to punish on whiff.
It is better to use the neutral orbital because Bryan’s hurtbox is positioned safer while abusing the disjointed hitbox, active frames, and quick recovery.
d/b+3 l i16 RC -12
Low poke with god tracking and high crush.
b+4 m i16 -10
Mid knee with pushback on block. +15 on hit, open area hit gives free f,f+2 followup but the timing is strict.  At the wall, the guaranteed followups are JU, f,f+2 which is harder and less reliable, and the easiest followup which is f+2,1,4 which still packs a punch.
d/f+1,1,1,1,2 m,m,m,m i15 -10,-10,-10,-10,-15
Hit confirmable mid punch string.
1,2,1 h,h,m i10 -6
Safe NCc string and the last hit is heavily delayable, leading to mindgames and delay catches.   It is very easy to check the opponent’s offense as the string is hard to punish ending in a safe mid.  The true strength in this string is when the opponent is conditioned to fear the last hit.  From there, not finishing the last hit can lead to mixups and block string pressure.
d/f+2 m i13 -6
Bryan’s fastest mid poke.  Used like a generic df+1 but worse frames on block. Df+2,1 is the mid,high extension and safe but the mid is duckable.  Df+2,3 is the mid, mid “mixup” and is -13 on block.  Some characters cannot punish df+2,3 due to pushback.
1+2 m i17 -7
Mid, homing move.  Can float for a combo conversion.
qcb+4 m i17 -12
Launching mid that hits grounded opponents.
Claudio Contributors: JustCallMeJoe, lain_tk
Move command Hit level Startup frame Block frame
f+3 m i18 -9
Good range, safe, homing, wall splat, low crush, and screws. Only downside is the startup, but this will be claudios main poke tool.
u/f+4 m i15 -13
Everything you want out of a hopkick. Primary whiff punisher. Goes under highs, lows and occasionally mids.
STB f1+2, 1+2 m,m i16 -9
Pretty much the best use for STB. Safe mid launcher. Excellent range and can punish deathfist and hei ff+2. Another good whiff punisher.
SS4 l i21 -11
One of his primary low pokes. Has deceptive range. +3 on hit. Mixup with sidestep into f+3.
b+3 m i13 -4
Fastest mid poke he’s got. Just something you have to use.
d/f+2 m i14 -13
CH launching mid. Similar to Kaz’s df+2, but more unsafe and linear. Still useable.
4 (Magic 4) h 12 -(?)
CH4 and CH4,3 both lead to combos. If you want to CH someone up close then this is what you press. Any further out i would wait for the whiff punish with hopkick.
f,f,f+2 h ? +7
Superman punch. Good frames on block and gets you in, but its a high so dont be predictable with it. Learn your iWR. Puts him into STB if it hits too.
u/f+3 m i23 +1
This move and f+4 mostly function the same. F+4 has 1 more frame of advantage but slightly more pushback (and a KND on CH). Other than those differences they are the goto plus on block mids.
d/b+3 l i24 -17
Much slower and riskier compared to his other lows, but gives a combo on CH.
b+1 m i18 -9
Wallsplating homing mid tool that is mainly relevant at the wall. Screws.
b+4, 2 m,m i17 -9
NCc knd/wallsplating tool. Complementary to b+1 but also grants STB on hit.
d+1, 2 m,m i17 +3
Good pressure tool out of STB. Amazing hitbox and NC.
d+3 l i16 -17
Long range low poke, hard to punish on shallow block which can create whiff opportunities.
1+2:d+1+2:f+2 m,m,m i17 -14
Claudios demoman. Does a grip of dmg and can be hard to punish due to weird recovery, gains stb after third hit.
Devil Jin Contributors: top kek, Fist of Defiance
Move command Hit level Startup frame Block frame
f,n,d,d/f+2 (EWGF) h i14~ +15
No doubt the best launcher in the game, also one of the fastest at 14f. 23 damage, +5 on block. Great tool to use for pressure and in combos too. Enough said.
1,1>2 h,h,m i10 +1,-1,-17
One of the best 10f punishers in the game. 27 damage, knocks down for good Wavedash mix-up, 1,1 is -1 on block, 2 is hit conformable with practice.
d/f+1>2 m,m i13 -3,-8
A 13f mid, mid safe string which sets up the base for his poking game, 26 Damage. df+1 is solid +8 on NH and the whole string is +3 on NH. Not a NC but Delaying ability on 2nd hit helps a lot in pressuring. NCc.
d/f+2 m i15 -7
A 15f safe mid which launches on CH, 15 Damage. One of the 2 primary CH fishing tool for DVJ because of its mentioned properties and decent range.
d/b+2 l (TC) 22 RC -13
Strong low poke with good high crush potential, 16 Damage. Leaves both you and your opponent crouching on hit but since it gives +4 frames on NH, it’s a very good move to go for because you can do WS-moves like WS4, WS1>2 or a throw after it without getting interrupted.
b+1>2 h,m i12 -6,-14
12f Punisher with great range, 30 Damage. Punishes get up kicks with ease and a must for punishing at wall because it wall splats. 2nd hit can be cancelled by holding ‘b’ which can be used to play scary mind games.
b+4 m i17~18 -11~-10
Demon Steel Pedal, 22 damage. Safe mid that is +6 on NH and stuns on CH for juggle. Other one of the CH fishing tool for him. Can be easily done from a Wavedash which in turn scares those  interrupting the WD. It also hits grounded thus making his ground game atrocious.
WS2 m i15 -12
A Mid that screws on NH as well as in a combo, 20 damage. Duck highs in a string and hit WS2 to ensure a screw, 15f fast thus his WS punisher too. Learn this from a Wavedash and be the master of his Wavedash mix-up.
u/f+4 m (TJ) i18 -8
Good low crushing mid poke. 21 Damage+Knocks down on hit and guarantees a dash up b+4. Can be done from a Wavedash for mix-up.
f,f+2 m i15 (16~) -11
Quick powerful mid that knocks down on hit and pushes back on block which in turn makes it impossible to punish in the open, 24 Damage. Can be done from a Wavedash for mix-up at wake. Great move when fishing for wall splats.
b,f+2>1>2/d+2/4 m,m i15~16 -12,-10,-11/-14/-8OC
High damage 3 hit string, 1st and 2nd hit are delayable NC mid pokes (24 Damage, +1 on NH) and the threat of the string’s delayable third hit makes opponents reluctant to punish it on block (use carefully in the open because 3rd hit (Any) can be Side stepped to left).
b,f+2>1>2 (48 Damage) works great for wall pressure, you can delay all the hits which helps in fooling the opponent, it can also be used as a wall ender. b,f+2,1,d+2 serves great as a wall carrier.
cd3 m (TJ) i29~ -8 OC
A Safe mid launcher that hits grounded, 21 Damage. Wavedash into it works great for Oki after 1,1>2 and other knd moves.
WR3_f,f,f+3_
cd~u/f+3
m (TJ) 25~, 27~ from cd +9~+10 GB
Slash kick with low crush property and heavy advantage on block, 30 Damage. This move can be easily executed from CD thus can be executed from point blank range. Devil Jin can also do this move from his Wavedash.
cd4 l 19~ -23
Also known as Hellsweep, 10 Damage. Scariest low in the game which trips on NH for a Juggle. Its Unseeability leads to opponents ducking in fear and eating his mids thus vital for his Wavedash Mix-up.
WS1>2/4 m,m i13 -6, -7/-9
WS1>2 are his good old twin piston. 26 Damage. 2 Hit 13f mid mid safe string that is a NC and can be delayed as well as hit confirmed. Enough said already.
WS1,4 is a 13f WS punisher that knocks down and wall splats, 35 Damage.

f,f,f+2_iWR2 m i15~17 (18~) +5~+6
Main pressure tool, + on block CH launcher. Used with d+2 for mix-up. Tracks, hard to punish if Side Stepped by the opponnent.
d+2 l i18 RC -13
High crushes, Tracking invisible low with good damage and neutral on hit, +10 on CH.
qcf+3 l i17 RC(19~) -14
Invisible low that ATs on CH. Goes under some mids, airborne during parts of animation so he can’t get hopkicked out of it.
d/f+2 m i15 -12~-11
i15 df+2 punisher, longer range compared to generic df+2 but unsafe.
1,2,1 h,m,m i10 -14
i10 NCC, CH confirmable, first two hits are safe. KND/Wallsplats.

+6 on block, gives free stomp on hit. Short range, use with caution if not at wall and in open ground.

Wallsplat tool, non-jailing, good damage, second hit tracks well. Safe on block, mixup with b+4,2 to keep people from ducking.
u/f+4 m i22~23 -9~-8
Safe low crushing mid with good tracking to both sides(?), gives mini combo with d+4,1,3 on hit. Launches if wall is to dragunov’s right, pickup with iWS4 or d+2.
b+3 h i14  -9
i14 homing high punisher, gives tailspin on NH and W! if opp back is to wall. Reaches all the way from earth to pluto. Be wary about using as poke/punisher as it’s high.
4,1 h,h i12 -6
i12 punisher, +8 on hit and jails.
d/f+4 m i12 -9
Great keepout poke with lots of range. Extremely linear, use with caution against steppers.
d/f+1 m i13 -2

d/f+2 m i14~15 -10~-9
Safe, mid counterhit launcher, unfortunately it lost some of its tracking from ttt2, so it’s much easier to side step now.
RLX 3~4 m i17~i18 -24~-23
Mid launcher option from relax stance.
Other component of the 50/50. Especially scary near the wall because the opponent will not be able to backdash both of the mixup options.
RLX 4~3 l,l i15 -?
Low launcher option from relax stance. Now staggers on block so it’s easier to punish. Scary near the wall for the same reasons as rlx 3~4.
u/f+4 m i22~23 -6~-5
Safe low crushing mid poke. Wall splats.
d/f3+4 m i16 -23
Typical choice for whiff punish launch. Can be more tricky to punish than usual because it has a bit of pushback on block.
WS1,3 h,m i13 -14~-13
i13 while standing launch punisher. One of the best in the game along with Josie and a few others. Poking with -13 lows against Eddy is much riskier than usual.

d+1 sm i10 -5
Special cancellable. When Cancelled into dp+2 it’s a decent i10 punish that can be done from full crouch as well. With Super, it becomes a powerful i10 launcher. Cancel into qcb+4 for pressure on block.

Special cancellable. Decent range low, combos into dp+2_1+2, qcb+1+2 and Super, but only on a clean hit. Otherwise it’s just a poking tool.
WS1 m i14 -7
Special cancellable. i14 punisher from crouching. Combos into dp+1 on normal hit for a full combo.

Wallsplats. Combos from d+3 for big damage from a low in the corner.

Move command Hit level Startup frame Block frame
1,1 h,m i10 -11
2nd hit gives full combo on CH. Unsafe, but since it’s the startup for his 10-hit it can be mixed up with f+1,1,2(1) to catch ppl pressing buttons after the 1,1. Second hit of 1,1 can be delayed if not doing f+1,1.
b+4 m i12 -9
Mid, safe, fast, practically tracks 180. Only downside is the range.
d/b+3 l i16~17 RC -15~-14
Super good low, great range and tracks at the tip. +4~5 OC.
d+2 l i20~21 -13~-12
Another great low. +2~3 on hit now, guaranteed CC d+3+4 on CH.
qcf+1 l i22(24) -14
Great crushing properties, even goes under certain mids. Buffed damage and frame advantage in T7, now +2 on hit. Can’t be low parried. Launches on CH.
b+1+2 m i13 -22?
His main whiff punishment tool, a fast mid shoulder that KNDs and wallsplats. Death on block.
d/f+2,2 m,m i20 -6
Safe mid,mid string that KNDs and wallsplats. It is a bit slow, but it’s one of his most damaging wallsplat moves.
qcf+1+2 m i16(18) +4 OC
Great pressure tool. On CH gives guaranteed d+3+4.
WS1 m i14 -1
Fast mid, tracks slightly to his left. Best utilized if done from snakedash (d, df~n+1). Good for approaching in the neutral game.
d/f+3 m i18 -7
Launches on NH, mid, safe and fairly quick. Can be utilized with SS+4 for launching SS mixups, but range is short.
b+1 h i10 -10
Gives guaranteed dash up b+1+2 on CH for big damage. Difficult to punish because of how fast it is.
u/f+2 m i18 -10
Evasive mid that tracks to his left (their right). Practically safe because of pushback. Be careful that you don’t become predictable when using it, as it can easily be sidestepped to your right (their left). Also has no range so a single backdash will lead to you eating a launcher.
d/f+1 m i14 0
Tracks slightly to his left. Not as fast as a lot of other df+1s, but in return it’s 0 on block. Now gives a techable stun on CH.
SS4 l i21 -31
A unseeable sweep that gives full combo on clean hit (not at tip range). Tracks and highcrushes. Massively unsafe, so don’t get predictable with it. Use with SS 1+2, (ss) df+3 for SS mixups.
d/b+1,4 m i16 -4
Fast, highcrushing mid with several followups. Wallsplats, KNDs and tailspins should you catch a float with it. The second hit doesn’t jail though, but can be mixed up with db+1,2 which is mid,mid (and -12 on block).
Gigas Contributors: jonhammer
Note: Gigas is pretty awful in the arcade version. He may have received big changes in the console version so take the current list with a grain of salt.
Move command Hit level Startup frame Block frame
1_1,2 h_h,h i10 +1_-14
Gigas doesn’t have a lot going for him but at least he has long arms! Don’t continue into the 2nd, unsafe hit unless the hits are guaranteed, as frame punishment or whiff punishment. Can wallsplat.
d/f+1 m i14 -6
Quick mid poke. One frame slower than most d/f+1 pokes but has more range due to Gigas’ long arms.
d/b+2 l i23 -15
Same as Marduk’s QCF+2, except easier/quicker to input and worse on block (launch punishable); however, on CH it will KND for follow-ups.
WR 2 m i17(18~) +7~?
Quick running shoulder. Big + frames on block, KND on hit. Can wallsplat. Can hit grounded opponents as they roll.
d+2 m i15 -14
Great longer range launcher. Unsafe on block. Extremely powerful as a whiff punisher.
f,d/f,d,d/b,b,f+1+2 (1+2 grab) h
Big damage throw. Does huge damage if the opponent hits the wall. Will do wall impact to the front of Gigas.
d+3[2] l[m] i16 -12[10]
The low by its own is -12, and the mid afterwards can catch punish attempts, and on block will only get you punished with a weak full crouch d+1, so mix between the 2 options. The string can cause a ground break in juggles, in the stages where it’s possible.
b+2* (hold),F m ? +15
The regular b+2 is unsafe on block. Charging it provides frame advantage on block and is a good way to start GOL (walking stance) mixups.
d/f+3 m i13 -9
i13 mid. Can be mixed up with the extensions of punishable mids or safe on block highs (1_1+2_1+2, 1+2).
d/f+4[1+2] m[m] i14 -3[+5]
Mix between the 2 options. Also a solid option to combo after a wallsplat.
u/f+3 m i20 -3
Like Marduks u/f+3 except no KND on regular hit. Full launch on CH. Safe on block.
WS+4 m i13 -12
Similar to Marduk’s WS+4. Stuns on CH and d/b+1+2 is guaranteed. 2 frames slower than a standard WS+4.
f+1+2 h i13 -10
Quick headbutt that does big damage and gives big + on CH. -10 on block but has very quick animation so can be difficult to reliably punish.
f,f+4[2] m[h] i17 -8[-4]
The second hit can be ducked, but it comes out very quickly so you can mix it up by just doing f,f+4 without the 2. Full launch on hit and safe on block.
f+2,f+1 h,h i16 -9
Safe (but duckable). Can mix it up with f+2,d+1. f+2 and f+2,f+1 give combo on CH. Very long range.

1,b+2 h,m  i10 -2
Effective CH string and safe on block and plus frames on hit.
d/f+1 m i13 -1
Can be done to pressure the opponent from up close and poke around with. Has two possible follow-ups that leads to either a high or a mid.
f,f+2 m i20~21 -16
Powerful mid launcher with quite a bit of push back that makes difficult to punish consistently (some punishes may be character-specific).
f,N,d,d/f+2 (EWGF) h i14 +5
Self-explanatory (Extremely effective whiff punisher, can be used defensively/setting up a wall, and has offensive applications due to plus frames).
f+3 m i18~i20 -3
Safe mid that will launch on CH.
f+4 m i20 +3
Can be used while pressuring the opponent or to prevent opponent from conducting strings from the mid-to-close range. Knockdown on CH. Hits on crouching opponents is +13 meaning a free df1,2 is guaranteed after for big damage.
b+4 m i18~i20 -9
Homing mid that will cause a knockdown and is safe on block.
d/b+2 l i23 -18
Heavy-hitting low that will crush highs. Plus frames on hit but unsafe on block.
f,f+3 m i20~i21 -3
Safe mid launcher.
WS4 m i11~i12 -3
Safe mid that can be followed-up from multiple lows like db3, Hellsweeps, or db2 if the player does not want to follow up with another low. Hit-confirmable into the secondary 4 input. WS44 is also an effective ws punisher (besides ws1).
u/f+4 m i24 -5
Low crush, safe, and a powerful mid that can lead into Tail Spin.
u/f+3+4 mm i28~i29 +1
Low crush and decent “going-in” tool for drawing yourself a bit closer to the opponent. Can also lead to Tail Spin. Slightly advantageous on block.
1,1,2 h,h,m i10 -17
Block punishment that will lead into knockdown scenario. Heihachi will be free to initiate pressure towards the floored opponent as they try to recover. The player can hit-confirm this. Wallsplats.
1,2,2 h,h,h i10 -12
Block punishment that will lead into frame advantage on hit. Tick throws, lows, EWGF setup, SS to give up your turn if you’re expecting buttons, or the like. Unsafe on block but effective as a secondary i10 frame block punishment tool.
?? (OTGF) m i19~i20 -8~-9
Safe on block but is difficult to pull off. However, the player is also rewarded for landing it in a neutral situation as well; it also launches. This was not the case in previous games.
Hwoarang Contributors: Droy
Note: While all the moves mentioned are good as a starting point, be aware that Hwoarang constantly switches between 3 different stances excluding his defualt stance, and playing him well requires using many different moves from his arsenal.
Move command Hit level Startup frame Block frame
1,2,3_1,2,4 h,h i10 +3
Your generic 1,2 jabs but with Hwoarang you can go into your left/right flamingo stance depending on what you end your string and start your mixup.
4,3 h,m i11 -6
Good NC punisher that you can cancel the second hit to go into LFS if you want to sacrifice damage for a higher reward from a mixup.
d/f+2 m i15 -7
A launcher with decent range but doesn’t launch crouchers.
u/f+3+4 m,h i14 -10
Hwoarang hops and does two kicks in the air but be careful not to do it from far since the first hit doesn’t have a lot of range and the second hit is a high so it can get ducked and punished.
b+3 m i16~i17 -19~-18
Mid launcher with a long of range, mostly used for whiff punishing so should be used with consideration.
WS4,4 m,m i11 -3~-4
Your go to while standing punisher, this move gets you good advantage on hit and puts you in RFF which has some of your best moves.
f,N,d/f+4 (JFSR) m i16(i18) -10
This is your best launcher since it launches your opponent really high in the air to have time to land RFF 3~4 which leads to really high damage and really good corner carry. It’s also safe due to pushback.
d/f+4 m i16 -7
A good get off me move to use when you feel like you’re pressured since Hwoarang doesn’t have any keep out tools.
RFF 3~4 (Power crush) h i27~i28 +5
This was always a great move to use after JFSR but it got better in T7 since now it’s a homing, power crush and a screw move even on natural hit, it still carries the risk of getting ducked and punished since it has a lot of start up.
d/b+3 l i19 -13
Decent high crushing low poke that leaves you neutral on hit.
d+3,4 l,h i17 +8~+10
One of Hwoarang’s best pokes, it’s a NC but don’t use it too much since the second hit is a high and it can be ducked and punished.
b+1 m i15 -13
A new evasive move Hwoarang got.
d/f+3,4 m,h i14 +9
Good NC that does decent damage and gives a lot of advantage. Don’t expect to be using this move a lot since Hwoarang has better moves to use instead.
LFF f,F+3 m i22~i24 +4~+6
Good oki tool since it hits grounded opponents and puts you in RFF.
LFS f+3 m i19 +3
Fast mid kick that is safe and has a lot of range because Hwoarang moves slightly forward and fully extends his leg and is really hard to step.

2 [1,2] h[m,m] i11 0[-3,-12]
Jabs with long reach. Good for keep out. Second hit being mid makes them safer against crouchers, third hit is an uninterruptable mid launcher.
d/b+1 l i12 -12
Very quick low poke. Can be used like a generic df1 to interrupt mashing opponents.
FC d/b+1 l i12 -9
Safe quick low poke. High crushes fully and has better frames and damage than normal d/b+1. Very dangerous at the wall.
d+4 _ FC d+4 l i16 -9
Safe low with frame advantage on hit. High crushes and has decent tracking.
d/f+2 m i15 -14
Long range mid launcher. Good for whiff punishing and tracking to Jack’s weak side, right.
f,f+1+2 m i15(16~) -15
Even longer range mid launcher. Mainly used for punishing whiffs and moves with pushback.
f,f+1 m 15(16~) -6
Safe mid with decent pushback on block. Good damage on hit plus a guaranteed d/b+2 or hcf,df+1 (EMGF).

Fast counterhit tool. Free f,f+4 on counterhit for good damage.
WS2,1 m,m i14 -14
Fast knockdown mid,mid from crouch. Good option for beating most buttons after landing a low. Only doing the first hit often makes people hesitate to attack. 2nd hit launches on CH.

Move command Hit level Startup frame Block frame
2,1>4 h,m,m i10 0,-3,-8
A very good h-m-m blockstring and the backbone of Jin’s pressure game. The last 4 being delayable means you can opt to do 2,1 followed by a low, a throw or what have you, and mix it up with the delayed 4 followup. 2,1 by itself is +6 on hit, allowing for pressure shenanigans.
4 h i13 -9
One of the fastest homing (sidestep tracking) moves in the game. +1 with the spin effect stun on hit, with W! near a wall. Full launch and combo on CH makes it a great CH fishing tool as well. High though, so beware.
d/b+4 l i20 -13
Bread and butter low poke. +2 on hit lets you continue your pressure game. Decently fast at i20, and launches(!) for a full combo on CH. A must have in your arsenal.
d+4 l i16 -13
Another bnb low. Sneaky fast, high crush, really useful as a round ender. -2 on hit however, be aware.
f+3 m i12 -8
A mid poke with immense stopping power thanks to its speed and pushback. Can be used to get an aggressive opponent off your case, with relative safety in case it is blocked. +3 on hit, in case you want to turn the tides.
u/f+2 m i15 -7
A quick mid poke with a built in sidestep to the left. Can be used to evade and counter some linear moves, or get around to the opponent’s side/back in tandem with ssl. +6 on hit, knockdown on CH.
f,f+3 m i23~25 +3
*The* oki option amongst all oki options. +3 on block, launches on normal hit, lets you go straight into your poking game with things like 2,1 or db+4.
f+4[~f] m[m] i21 -6[-1]
De facto opener at mid/long range. Safe long range mid, with a ZEN transition that is +9 on hit and -1 on block, allowing you to do ZEN mixups. Can be mixed up with no stance transition that has pushback and leaves you at a range to bait whiff punishes, or stance cancel into block to condition opponents into attacking you so you can respond with an appropriate move. This move and the mixups stemming from it deserve its own section.
ZEN_CDS 1+2 h,h i13 without stance -13?
Big launcher from ZEN/CDS that’s relatively safe and makes for some very good mixups : f+4~f ZEN 1+2 cannot be interrupted by anything slower than 13f, which can be mixed up with other ZEN moves. As a standalone move it is still good; after evading something using CDS you can use this to punish.

A very good safe mid from any of his stances, from crouchdash or from while standing. Homing, around +2 on hit with W! on walls nearby and a launch on counter hit makes it a good move to stop people from doing ss~move shenanigans. Also makes for a good mixup with the low when done from stance.
f,N,d,df+2 (EWHF) h i11(i14) +5
Jin’s flavor of the standard Mishima launcher. Launches on normal hit now, with very damaging combos. Paired with a slightly bigger hitbox, and good sidestep tracking to Jin’s otherwise weak side, this is now an indispensible move in Jin’s arsenal. Punisher, combo filler, pressure, this move does it all.
cd1+2,3,1 in rage
cd1+2 in rage
(Rage Drive)
h,m i11(i14) +?
This move is basically EWGF on steroids. A straight screw on normal hit like ewhf leading into massive damage. Massive + frames on block leading into a free ZEN mixup on block. Also usable as damage filler and a wall carry in combos. The only thing this move doesn’t do is your laundry.
eCD+1 m i16 (i19) -12
Mid launcher from crouch dash. Is basically a high-risk alternative to cd+3, with a high launch on hit and -12 on block. Animation-wise it makes for a mixup with cd+4.
cd4 l i20(i23) -31
Low launcher from crouch dash, makes for a mixup with eCD+1 animation wise. One of the very few i20 knockdown lows in the game which give a full combo on hit. cd+4 gives a backturned combo, however, so damage is sort of limited, but still a threat.
b+1+2 in rage
(Rage Art)
h i13 -15 at least
One of the fastest non-reversal Rage Arts in the game at i13. RA armor makes it a very good trade tool, and it deals a good chunk of damage even when used as a combo ender. Good move overall.

Move command Hit level Startup frame Block frame
d/f+4 m i14 -14 (raw)
While it’s -14 without any followup, it puts you in Switch Stance which has a bunch of great followups and can be cancelled into crouch dash, great hitbox (hits Ling’s AOP) and can be used for resets.
3 _ 3,3 _ 3,2[~f] m _ m,h _ m,m_m i13 -? _ -1 _ -12
Safe (3 on its own) i13 with a high/mid mixup followup, delayable and can cancel into crouch dash.
1,2 h,h i10 -?
Can either stop after the jabs or continue into a small mixup. The risk-reward ratio of this mixup is not in Josie’s favor though: 1,2,3 ends with a mid and is -11. 1,2,d+4 ends with a launch punishable low, and 1,2,d+4,4 may can punish attempts with an extra high hit, but it too can be launch punished if the opponent waits for it.
1,2,4 _ 2,4  h,h,h _ h,h i10 _ i11  -? _ -?
Fast entry into Switch Stance. 1,2,4 is reactable but 2,4 has a frame slower startup
d+4 l i15 -10
Fast low, only punishable via crouch jab or low parry, good range, very annoying
f+1+2 h i14 -5
14 frame punish, good whiff punish, gives guaranteed d/f1,4,2 on NH and CH
d/f+2 m i15 -13
Probably the overall best NH d/f+2 launcher in the game, amazing range, launches crouchers, goes under jabs situationally, and only -13!
u/f+3 m i28 -7
Orbital, range and startup aren’t amazing, but the amount of mids this goes over is insane, even some mid Rage Arts whiff under this.
d/f+1 m i16 -7
The optional, delayable followup (d/f+1,4,2) can make the opponent scared to attack afterwards. If the second hit scores CH then the final hit is guaranteed, and also grants you a free d+3+4 afterwards.
cd3 l 20~ -13
Super long range low, +4 on hit, helps to keep people locked in place trying to block it from long range.
f,f+4 m i16/i17 -9
Homing, mid, CH launcher, range is a bit iffy, but if people hit buttons it will launch at whiff range, top korean players (Knee) still don’t punish consistently when it’s whiffed in their face, though it is definitely possible if you look for it.
f,f+3 m i20+(?) +6
Slow mid with good range that leaves you close and +6 on block
b+4,3 m,m i16 -6
Long range poke that moves you closer, has followups but they’re interruptible on block and it leaves you +5 on hit by itself anyway
d/f+3 l i26 -13
High crushing low, slow but its followups (d/f+3,2_d/f+3,2~f) make it tricky to punish. Natural combo on counter hit. If the first hit is a CH then the second hit won’t knock down, if they block the first hit and get CH by the second it will knock down/wallsplat.
u/f+4 m i15 -13
Hopkick. It also goes under jabs sometimes.

f,f+3 m i12 -8
Long reaching poke. Can hit in instances where 2, 2 misses. Pushes Kat away making it very safe. Kat bends sideways making it hard for some highs to hit her.
d/f+1 m i13 -1
Great pressure mid poke. Good for keeping the opponent in place.

Great mid that can lead to CH combo. Fairly good range. Lowers Kat’s hitbox during the first few frames. Tracks to her right.

Long traveling mid. Free dash in u/b+4 if it hits. Also starts combo if only the 2nd kick hits.

Katarina’s hopkick. 2nd hit needed for combo starter. Can sometimes duck highs at the start of the move. Fairly long range.

KND low which puts opponent FDFT. Gives a free u/b+4 at the wall.

High damaging low poke. Used sparingly can lead to a lot of free damage and crouch mixup.
d/f+3+4 l i15s -16

KND homing move with a lot of pushback making it safe vs most opponents. Not too risky to throw out.

Move command Hit level Startup frame Block frame
d/f+1 _ d/f+1,2 m i13 -3
This move in my opinion is by far her best move. This is one of the tools that helps define Kazumi as that “poke heavy” kind of character. It is a mid hitting poke that slightly tracks both ways. People are not likely to press buttons after blocking df+1 because of the extension df+1_2. Known to be Kazumis “cheapest” move by many.
WR2 _ f,f,f+2 m i15 -4
This another one of Kazumis cheap moves. She does sort of a lunging demon paw where she pushes back her opponent making this almost seem like it is plus. This move wallsplats as well and knocks down on hit.
1,1,2 h,h,m i10 -17
The good ole Mishima 1, 1, 2. Amazing 10f punish that knocks down the opponent after the 3rd hit. This can be hit confirmable so just hit the breaks after hitting 1, 1 if they are blocking those. Speaking of the 1, 1 part, it can be used to apply pressure too!
CH 4 (Magic 4) h i11 -4?
Kazumis counter hit 4 is very good! She can set up and fish for this CH 4 using her poking style and movement. She gets a huge combo off of her CH 4. This move (and many other CH 4s) can also be called “Magic 4”.
d/b+4 l i20 -13
Kazumi struggles having a great low but this one gets the job done. Although its start up is a bit sluggish, but it is +4 on hit.
d/f+1+2 h (Throw) i11~i12  ?
Kazumis command throw. It requires a real break and it is important since Tekken 7s throw system has changed a bit. This leaves the opponent far away so you could use this to create space too.
f,f+4 m i20 -7
Kazumis axe kick. This is used to whiff punish opponents. From what I have seen this is a great whiff punish tool.
WS4,4 m,h i13 -9
Great while standing punish at 13 frames. It leaves her +13 on hit. This a great move that can turn the tides and start an offense off of a punish.
FLY b+1+2 m (throw) i11~i12 ?
An unbreakable throw out of Kazumis fly stance (f+3+4). It has slow startup but it wallsplats and is a great way to catch people being very defensive at the wall. You could also use it in tech trap situations as well.
u/f+4 m i15 -13
Short ranged hopkick, well, hop knee actually. However it comes out in 15 frames and hopkicks are always nice!
b+2 m i15 -9
This is one of Kazumis screw moves, however it’s also one of her homing moves. It has decent range and if you hit with this you have +12. It also is safe.

This is usually your typical combo ender. It does good damage and is a good wall carry. This will wallsplat opponents who are standing but it is a bit risky to go for.
d+2 (grounded opponent) l i11 -14
Use this move if opponents are not standing up and are just laying on the floor, chilling.
d/f+2 m i18 -24
TIGER UPPERCUT!! Real talk if your opponent blocks this you will get launched. Looks sick tho.
2+3 m i12 -30
Kazumis tiger she can launch. Don’t be fooled by the -30, this thing is pretty much impossible to punish since it knocks you back a ton on block. I think this move is actually good for creating quick and good distance. Just use this wisely.

With f,N,d/f+2 input, it is the fastest launcher in the game at 13f. f,N,d,d/f+2 input makes it 14f. 23 damage, +5 on block. Great tool to use for pressure and in combos too. Enough said.
1,1>2 h,h,m i10 +1,-1,-17
One of the best 10f punishers in the game. 27 damage, knocks down for good Wavedash mix-up, 1,1 is -1 on block, 2 is hit conformable with practice.
f+4 m i19~i20 +4~+5 OC
Kazuya lock-down move. 20 damage, +4 on block and +7 on hit, forces crouch in both cases. KND on CH, f,f+4 or d+3+4 is guaranteed. Devil Kazuya Version gives +17 frames on crouched opponent, df+1,2 or ewgf is guaranteed thus making it a launcher for mix-ups.
d/f+2 m i14 -12
Homing move, 22 damage, +5 on NH and stuns for juggle on CH, best choice for CH fishing, has a 13f standing status on stun that can be followed up with JF pewgf for a full launch (extremely hard but good reward).
cd4,1 l,m i18~i19 -26
Kazuya’s infamous hellsweep. Unseeable, damaging low (33 damage) that knocks down for Wavedash mix-up, death on block. Devil Kazuya can extend it by inputting f,n,d,d/f+1,u/f before 2nd hit connects, making him do a tgf+heaven’s door out of CD4,1 and dealing a total of 49 damage. A “trip” from “hell” to “heaven”.

1[2] _ 2,1 h[h] _ h,m i10 +1[-1] _ -2
The basic string move for almost every character in the game.Some players crouch instantly after seeing the animation of the first hit if they block (1, 2) try not to do a mixup into command throws so often.
You can go for a 50/50 situation by completing the string 1,2,1,1,2,4 the last three hits (mid,mid,low) are naturals and you got around +1~2frames on hit. Also the 3rd hit of the string (mid) is delayable but a skilled player can SSR so beware of whiff punish or reversal/parry moves.
2,1 is the best i10 punisher, it doesn’t jail  on block but second hit cannot be sidestepped ( please confirm), second hit only can be canceled by a reversal/parry move, so be prepared for your chicken move if opponent do a reversal.
f,f+1 m i22 -5
Good damaging homing mid. On CH tails spins the opponent. The hitbox is now improved so you can use it during juggles as as tailspin.
b+1,[4] h,[m] i12 -9~-7
It’s a hit confirmable move for CH combos, if not CH still there’s a 50/50 chance to connect the second hit if opponent crouches or react too late. Good for some mix ups if you like to roam around the floor, but beware of oki.
f,f,N,1+2 m i9 +7
Quick mid that gives a lot of frame advantage on hit (0 on block). On CH gives you massive frame advantage.
f,f,N,2 l i18 -15
Hard to react to low, goes into a throw animation on CH.
f+2[1] m[h] i15 -9
One of King’s longest range punishers, can very good against certain moves that are punishable but have a lot of pushback. The 1 is a high and as this move does not jail the opponent can duck it if they block the first hit. Second hit wall splats and wall breaks. Can be used in juggles to get a wall splat and then go for a break, wall grab or jab into ground grab mixup.
f+4 m i18 -9
Full homing move that low crushes.
d/b+3 l i23 -16
Long ranged low that launches on CH. Can easily combo after launching with WR+2,2. Very punishable if blocked. On regular hit can buffer a throw like giant swing or tijuana twister to catch your opponent afterwards.
d/b+4 l i27~29 -17~-15
Good ranged low that knocks the opponent down on hit.
d+3 l i17 -12
Good move for oki, will beat all wake up buttons except toe tap which it trades with. Will catch them rolling away. On block the most characters can only punish it with a WR+4
d+4 l i14 -13
Generic low
d/f+1[2] m[m] i14~16 -1~+1[-10]
Good hurtbox makes it a good mid to cover approaches. Can delay the 2 to catch people pressing buttons after the 1. Useful in Oki as it’ll catch people trying to crouch on wakeup or do a slow get up move. Excellent tool for mixups into command throws or just defending to bait and punish.
d/f+2 m i13 -6
It has a very small window to hitconfirm, so the opponent may crouch if they expect the second hit (d/f+2, 1), so use it wisely, you may eat a whiff punish that leads to big damage combo so don’t be greedy. Second hit have some tracking properties ( please confirm).
FC d/f+2 m i15~16 -14~-13
Crumples the opponent on hit, giving you a long time to start juggling them.
Command Throws
King’s many command throws require the correct button to break.

Many of King’s throws also air grab, meaning they will catch your opponent trying to do any jumping move like a hopkick. Air grabs can not be broken but some have followups that can be.
Giant Swing (f,b,d/b,d,d/f,f+1): very high damage, fast startup. Breaks with a 1 and can be quick rise teched to reduce damage (unless it hits a wall). Grab animation is the same as a 1+2 grab, meaning you can not tell by sight it’s a giant swing. On wall splattered opponents it does Shining Torpedo. Can air grab, performing a spinning power slam (floor breaks).

Muscle Buster(QCB+1+2): 1+2 break. Not as fast as giant swing but has the same start up animation. Will break floors. Leaves you BT to the opponent, letting you do a fast BT 3 to hit them on the ground if they don’t get up fast enough (or a wall keeps them close to you).

Tijuana Twister(f,b,d/b,d,d/f,f+2): good to mix up with giant swing, but it not a 1+2 grab animation. Breaks with a 2. Drops the opponent at your feet ready for oki. Can not air grab but can grab a wall splattered opponent for a spinning power slam.

Ultimate Tackle (FC+1+2): Another good tool for FC mixups if you like to combine a FC+1 into a Clothesline Press or FC+d/f+2.

Power Bomb: done with WR2+4, but can also be done by Jaguar Step and 1+4/2+3. Air grab that can’t be broken, does good damage, floor breaks and let’s king do oki. One of the best combo enders kind has.

Tomahawk(WR+2+4): Known as shining wizard, this is a 1+2 break done with WR+2+4. As mentioned above on airborne opponents it does a power bomb, but on ground opponents it does a tomahawk and knocks them down at your feet. Can be very effective if you learn to do this move fast and from close range where the opponent as little time to react. Can be buffered after many hits as well.
If fast enough, can mix this up with a dash in giant swing to mixup a 1 with a 1+2 break.

f,N,d,D/F+(1+4 or 2+3): These lead to different chain grabs. After the first grab there is no animation to give away what the next grab is, so the opponent has to guess. Good damage off these if the opponent doesn’t break. Some grabs lead to unbreakable follow ups, and these are the ones most the opponent is most likely to try and break.
Can mix up the grabs with any of King’s other moves off f,n,d,D/F or cancel the crouch dash into any of his FC or WR moves. This allows for some good mixup.

Cobra Clutch: Starts off with a jaguar step and either 1+4 or 2+3. Leads to several chain grab paths, the main one of which involves a lot of 50/50 breaks with no animation differences, meaning your opponent has to guess to break out. Full chain grab does over 100 damage.

Ground grabs: d/b+1+3 (1 break) or d/b+2+4 (2 break) against an opponent on the ground. After a wall splat you can do a 1,2 and then go for one of these grabs to grab them as they hit the ground. Also useful for grabbing people rolling on the ground, but will not grab quick get up rolls. The d/b+1+4 grab also floor breaks, provided you haven’t already done so in the combo. When done on face down opponent’s these can’t be broken. If you tap d/b when doing the grab they become giant swings but they do very little damage.

Wall grabs: King can do a couple of grabs on wall splattered opponents. Giant Swing and Tomahawk will do a Shining Torpedo (multiple hits and ends with the opponent on the ground at your feet). Tijuana Twister does a spinning power bomb, which can floor break. Shining Torpedo is in most cases your highest guaranteed damage following a wallsplat.

Double high that wall splats and jails. Tracks her weak side well if u draw out the qcf. Crushes lows and can crush some highs if done instantly out of qcf. Encourages opponents to duck which gives her access to many of her wall splatting mids. Great pressuring tool against an opponent whose back is at the wall.
qcf+1,2 m,m i15~16 (i17~) -12,-14

One of the only 12f mids in the game, also her main i12 punish with minor pushback. Will not punish some 12f moves, for example, Face up Feet Toward(FUFT) wake up 4. In this event you can use her alternate i12 punish.(4,1) Can be used as a panic move or as a frametrap, KND, wall splats. If opponent does not roll back tech off the KND, then it gives a free f,F+4

Natural hit(NH) launcher from BT, forces the opponent in a crouch state, it only being -10~-9 means the only punish the opponent can do is downjab which makes this move abusable.

AOP 4~3: One of the best lows that Xiaoyu has. Was good in tag 2 and now has been buffed even more, this move knocks opponents down and opens up for good okizeme mixups, and on block Xiaoyu remains on the floor making the punish minimal, has to be low parried to get a good punish.
AOP 2>1: Hit confirmable natural combo. Does 30 damage and sends the opponent far.
AOP u/f+3: Think of a hopkick, that’s what this is. Except it has a safe followup with AOP u/f+3,3, though it is a high and can be crouched, or AOP u/f+3,1 which is a mid but is unsafe (-4 but she remains in aop).
b+1 m i8 ?
A good panic button as it comes out i8 when the generic fastest button for characters is i10. On hit goes into RDS as well and can enforce RDS mixups from there.
d/b+4 l i18 -12
Generic but good low poke that’s harder to react too than SS4 and on CH gets a juggle.
RDS f+3+4, 3+4 M (RDS) i25 -11 (RBT)
This is a conditioning move. From RDS empty rookick can be used after conditioning people to block and fear pressing a button as it crushes highs and some mids. The rookick is a launcher which will hit people who crouch in fear of throws and lows that she has from RDS.Note that it is launch punishable on block as she remains backturned afterwards. If people mess up the punish a lot of Xiaoyus tend to use RDS f+1+2 as a parry attempt.
RDS 4 m i13~14 -18
Xiaoyu’s launcher from backturn. It comes out i13 which is as fast as an EWGF and whilst some characters can launch punish this for free, for some others it can be tricky if you space the move. This is a top 15 move sheerly because of the mixups she has from RDS in general.
RDS d+3,3+4 (With Rage) l,m i16 -4
Xiaoyu’s rage drive. This is argued the best in the game for good reason. It is a low mid launcher which jails on block and is safe. What else is there to say? Oh and it comes off of RDS stance where she already has access to an i13 mid launcher and grabs.And whilst it’s not really a top move, the normal version (RDS d3,4) tailspins which is worth mentioning.
f+1+2 m i12 -16~-15
Her i12 punisher, does good damage, knocks the opponent far away.
4 h i11 -3
Generic standing 4 but has really good reach and can be good for getting a magic 4.
f,f+3 m i14 -5
Good tracking mid that puts her into RDS, and reaches far. Not much else to say really? Is good in the neutral.
4~3 M (TJ) i23 -1 (OC)
A tech jump mid that CH launches and is also used a lot after a tailspin for okizeme mixups.
WS2 m i13 -4
Good ch launcher non charged or ws punish for incredibly punish blocked lows like snake edge or Xiaoyu’s SS3 in a mirror match by charging the WS2 all the way. If you can do the instant version this is a good poke to look for CH’s.

d/f+1 m i13 -1
A good mid poke which is -1 on block making it safe and +6 on hit.
4 m i12 -9
Standing 4 is an i12 mid with good range, it’s also safe at -9.
d/b+4 l i18 -?
It’s an annoying low with SCT stance options built in. the followup db+4,4 is -9 on block and +3 on hit.
f,f+3 m i18 -6
Linear, but safe with good pushback. Causes knockdown on hit, and can be wallcarry.
b+3 m i17 -11
Mid homing move, safe in the open, and can go backturned by holding B. It’s also a screw attack. Holding B makes it -8 instead of -11.
d/b+3 l, TWISTL i15 -13
A high damage low with a follow up or can go into her TWISTL stance.
d/f+4 l i27 -12
A decent round ender, she does a hop into a really damaging low.
SS4 l i22~23 -9
A decent low that launches on CH, can go backturn for roll combo on CH.
b+1+2 h,h,h i20 -9
Because it’s a powercrush, and it wallsplats to her left.
f+2,2 m,m i17 -3
A mid jab into palm slap that leave the opponent crouching.
2,2 h,h i12 -12
Her i12 punish.
b+1 m i17 -13
Long range i17 punish, causes flipover on hit leaving opponent face down head towards. Also a wall ender when you do 1, df+1, b+1. Gives better oki.
b+4 m i16 -8
A knee that launches on CH, safe but linear.
b+2 m i22 -4
A mid that forces crouch on block, +2 on hit.
u/f+3 m i15 -17
Her hop kick. Ridiculous high crush ability, crushes lows, tracks to her left, but is launch punishable. U+3 is harder to punish

d/f+1 m i14~15 -1~0
Fully tracks to Raven’s left, has great range and is +7 on hit.
2,4 h,h i10 -9~-8
10 frames punisher, wallsplats. Only drawback is that it doesn’t always reach.
4,1 h,h i12 +5
12 frames punish that allows for BT mixups. Good range and reaches most -12 moves. Can use 4 by itself as a CH launcher
WS2 m i13 -8
CH launcher that can be done from crouch or CD, very good tool to make people afraid of CD.
d/b+4 l i23~24 -14~-13
Chunky low that gives free uf3 or RA on CH. Encourages people to duck. +4~+5 on hit. Be careful with this move vs chars with quick vs launchers, however can be hard to punish when from max range.
FC d/f+3+4 l i18 -35
High risk, high reward low that can be done from crouch or CD. has a high damaging followup and CH launches if only the first hit is done. Staggers on block.
d/b+2 m -14~13 -4~-3
Raven’s quickest mid. Leaves her BT, +5~+6 on hit which allows for BT mixups. Good tracking. Has a high followup with db+2,1 that will interrupt any buttons.
u/f+4 m i19~22 -5~-2
Low crushing mid that gives KND or W!. Insanely quick recovery and a lot of active frames. Has a pseudo hitconfirmable followup in uf+4,4.
qcf+4 m i21 -14 (RBT)
Keepout launcher. Leaves Raven BT and takes a large flip backwards making it hard to whiffpunish. Should be spaced so it whiffs or hits, never blocked.
BT b+2,4 m,h -9 0
NC that jails on block. Good for mixing up opponents from BT. First hit can go under jabs at times.
BT f+4,3 l,h i16 -13
NC low, high that does a decent amount. Raven’s main threatening low from BT to make people duck. 2nd hit can be ducked on block and launched.
BT f+2 m i17 -5
Another mid from BT, this one having the best tracking out of them. +6 on hit. Has an NC high followup in BT f+2,4 and an NCC safe mid followup with BT f+2,3
f+2,3 m,m i15 -11~-10
NC with long range. Good whiffpunisher for ending rounds or punishing certain moves with a lot of pushback. 0~+1 OC on hit.

NC and jails on block. Good range and a solid poke. First hit tracks left, second right. 0~+1 on hit.

d/f+1 m i13 -2
Your normal df1 to check people, has a high extension and mid extension to discourage people from sidestepping/pressing a button after. You can also go into his savage stance by holding forward after df1.
d/f+2,1  m,m i16 -15
His main whiff punisher, decent range and launches. First hit tracks vs your opponents left.
SAV d/b+3 l i19 -13
Good tracking, but weaker to your opponents left. +5 and forces your opponent in crouch. Leaves you right in their face. d3+4 (new move) is guaranteed on CH, can also transition into his SAV stance.
d/f+3,2 m,m i16 -6
+5 on hit, great poking string. If they for some reason duck the second hit, a hopkick is guaranteed if they don’t techroll.
d/b+3 l i18 -13
Leaves you close to your opponent, +3 on hit and you can transition into SAV.
d/b+4 l i18 -16
Decent amount of damage (24) and leaves you at a range where you can use Miguels great backdash to make attacks whiff. Neutral on hit and forces your opponent in crouch. d3+4 (new kick in 7) is guaranteed on CH. Also well spaced, this can be difficult to punish on block. (i.e Kazuya, limits his other lows but this one is tough for him.)
b1+2 h i11 -9
Insanely fast CH launcher that leads to a big combo. This can also transition into SAV, but I wouldn’t advise it.
d+3 l i21 -12
High crushes insanely fast, +1 on hit. ws4 is a common follow up since you’re left in crouch after, and it covers vs SSL.
d/f+4 m i14 -7
Covers Miguels weakside (opponents left) insanely good, this and df2 are the main moves you want to use to track vs opponents left.
SAV u/f+3 m i15~16 -9~-8
Used for mixing up his SAV db3. Knockdown/wallsplat on normal hit and also low crushes.
2,1 h,h i11 -4
Insanely good 11f punisher and whiff punisher if close enough. The range isn’t all that great, but the damage (40) and it being +7 on hit makes up for that. Can transition into SAV by holding forward after.
f+4 m i18 -7
Long ranged homing that has an extension (f4,2) which is a natural combo and knocksdown/wallsplats. Extension is now -13 in Tekken 7.
SAV 4 h i15 -5
Great homing move, it knocksdown and wallsplats on normal hit.
f+2+3 m i22~23 -9~0
Insane range, but you are rarely left at anything below -6 frame wise so you can get blown up for stepping after. Used for getting close, and has tracking properties similar to Heihachi ff2 where sometimes it’ll just catch you.
f+2 h i15 -3
Fast, safe CH launcher that leads to a decent combo.

u/f+1 m i26 – 5
Safe high damaging launch. Low crushes(not instantly) and extremely good for oki.
SS1(~b_~f) m i14 -9(+4 )
What makes this move extremely good is doing ss1~b or ss 1~f at the wall gives heavy frame advantage forcing an instant frame trap or mixup.
1+4 m m (2 hits) i15 -5
Safe mid, mid strings will always be op. Beats all crushing moves and leaves them in fc on hit. It creates extremely nasty oki at the wall when used as an ender in conjunction with qcf+2.
f+2 h i13 -3
13 frame long reaching high that’s +8 on hit. Has extremely good strings after such as f+2,1,4(ends in high tailspins, -4) and f+2,1,1+2(+1 on hit,ends in a mid and leaves them in fc. -12 on block).
f+3 h h (2 hits) i14 +6
A really good + on block ch launcher. Since it’s double hitting the second one can be ducked and you can be launched punished. Use with discretion.
d/b+2 m i24 -5
Her longest ranged homing move.  It’s a Ch launcher and high crushes at particular ranges and startup frames.
qcf+1 h i21 +1
Decent range and a great ch launcher.
d/b+3 l i21 -13
A decent low to add to your frame traps, +3 on hit and it’s good for opening people up.
d/f+1 m i13 -1
Staple move to nina’s pressure game. Can go into a multitude of strings after. df+1,2/df+1,2(u/d)/df+1,2,3/ect.
d+2 l i20 0
Extremely hard to see low. High crushes and tracks one direction. Extension is a high that is a ch launcher(the greatest)
d/f+2 m i15 -6~-7
A safe fast mid launcher. Doesn’t launch crouchers unless on ch.
u/f+2<1 m,m i18,i18 -10,-13
One of nina’s best launchers, hit confirmable and decent range. Second hit is a ch launcher(very delayable string). Uf2 is also a decent high-crush.
SS2 m i15 -14
A sidestepping launch that crushes highs.Sometimes difficult to punish.
d,d/f+4 l i26 -37
A very difficult to see low that is a ch launcher. On normal hit you get a free ff+3. This move is faster when you’re crouching doing it.
4 h i11 -9
Basic 4 CH launcher. Has strings from it to catch whiff punishment such as 4,3,2(-13).

qcf+2 m i13(15~) -17
Whiff punisher, high damage, pushback on block so majority of cast has trouble punishing.Linear and steppable.
d+4:2:1+2 l,m,m i15 -31(Stagger),-18,-17
Use with qcf+2 for high risk/reward damaging 50/50s. Can also be used as a combo and wall ender.Unsafe with heavy pushback if last hit blocked.
First hit staggers on block, KND only on clean hit.
qcb+4 h i15(~17) +3
A Homing high, knocks down on NH and a CH launcher that is +3 on block and screws in a combo. Good range, can be done out of df+1,b for pressure
SS3 l i19(29~) -13
Only -12 on block,+4 on hit, +12 on visually confirmable CH with guaranteed followups (d+1+2 or b+1,2). Dangerous at wall.
b+3 h i14 -6
i14 NH launcher knee.No range, can only punish moves with no pushback. Safe so can be used as a frame trap but be careful with range and because it’s a high too.
qcf+3 l i18(20~) -14
CH launcher, high crushes, can be done out of qcf.
d/f+1 m i14 -2
Mid poke that can transition into his backsway stance (df+1,b)
f,f+2->followups m i15(16~) -18
f,f+2 can also be done from full crouch via d/f+2. f,f+2:1(‘1’ needs to be hit right when f,f+2 hits) is NC that knocks down and Wall Splats, safe on block at -4 but 2nd hit can be crouched under.
f,f+2,1 is mid mid string that is a natural combo on counter hit, but -12 on block. You might execute this accidentally trying to do f,f+2:1.This string is that it can be cancelled by holding ‘b’ which you can use to your advantage. Between both hits there is a 10 frame gap so you might eat 10f punishers if you abuse it.
f,f+2>2 is a mid low string, the low on it is a launcher and is -19 but thanks to a huge pushback, lots of launchers can’t reach it to punish. The second hit can be delayed as well as cancelled by holding ‘b’. Use this for those who interrupt your f,f+2,1 cancels because the 2nd hit crushes highs.
f+1+2 m i20 +3 OC
Paul’s Lockdown move, 20f mid which is +3 on block and +8 on hit, forces crouch in both conditions, on CH it knockdowns which can’t be tech rolled.
b+2,1/1* m,m i18 -9 OC
-8/+8 OC
A new addition to his arsenal in T7. 18f uber damaging safe mid mid string, both hits are safe on block, 2nd hit can be charged which gives +8 on block and forces crouch, uber pressuring, charged 2nd hit also hits grounded because of which the string works greatly as a combo ender, 1st hit will spike and charged 2nd hit will hit grounded, if they try to get up, there is always a threat of quick ‘2’ which will hit them.
u/b+2 m i21 -8
A safe homing mid that knocks down, wall splats and stuns on CH for combo, enough said already. The stun has 13f standing status thus d+1+2 is guaranteed which leads to damaging wall combos.
qcb+1 m i21~22(23~) -2~-1 OC
A Lockdown mid form his backsway that -2 on block and forces crouch. On hit, it knocks down in FDFA position for a guaranteed db+2. On CH, it launches for a beefy juggle. Can be done from df+1~b for pressure.
d/f+2 m i15 -8
Safe launcher. Doesn’t launch crouchers.
d/b+2 m i19 -11
Grants a juggle on CH and evades under highs during the startup.

One of Steves main counter hit tools. Safe on block, very + on hit and gives a combo on CH.
1,2,1 h,h,h i10 -3
Three-hit NCc string that jails and can be canceled into Flicker (FLK) stance or into Peekaboo (PAB). Transitioning into a stance afterwards leaves him at -1 on block.
d/f+2, Duck cancel m i16 -9
Another great counter hit tool. Confirm the combo on counter hit by doing Duck 1 instead of canceling the Duck.
Ext Duck f+2, Duck h (Special) i45~ +15
+15 frames on block means he can follow it up with an unblockable Duck f+2 or Duck cancel WS+1, 2 for big damage.Since it’s a high it can be ducked, but as a mixup instead of going for the Ext Duck f+2 he can go for Ext Duck 1 which is a mid.

Duck 2 m 25~ -14
Long range launcher with good high crush potential thanks to the duck stance.

Steves “deathfist”. Cancels into FLK afterwards. This move is usually used when his opponent has their back to the wall to fish for a wall splat.

Primary punish for -15. KND on hit.
b+2 m (TC) i17~18 -12~-11
Steves “fastest” launcher. Short range. He leans back in the animation of this move and can crush highs. Considering this is his fastest launcher means that -16 moves against him can’t be launch punished. This can sometimes be abused.
f,f,f+2 m (TC) i20~23 +9~+12 GB
Jumping animation which gives low crush. KND on hit and heavy frame advantage on block.
d+1 _ d+2~1~DCK cancel l _ l,m i16RC _ i18 -13 _ ?
d+1 is a standard low poke that you just have to use with steve. d+2~1 is an NCc low-mid poke that is most effective when opponent is low on health. it is imperative to dck cancel the move at all times to make it safe.
WS1,2 m,m i11 -13~-12
Steves 11 frame WS punish and arguably one of the best WS-punishers in the game. The second hit can be delayed to try to catch people attacking if the first hit is blocked.
