Tactics Edit


General Strategies Edit

Rouga's big game plan is to get in your face and cause pain. He's one of the best damage dealers in the game and can make any off hand hit convert to massive damage.

He can cause the opponent to go into a recovery state in many ways to allow him to get in. 236C send a fireball along the ground that will launch the opponent into the air and can allow you to get in. It only travels about 5/6ths screen distance though, so if you're at full screen you're not getting anything off of this unless your opponent moves forward. Unfortunately you cannot boost cancel this move, so keep that in mind.

Once you get in you have some tools you can mix up with. Instant air dashes can make for effective combo starters if you can land the hit, but just jumping at your opponent is a good way to get killed, so watch yourself. 6B is a pretty decent overhead that you can cancel into j.214A (this does not hit overhead, however) and get some solid damage off of it. It has some slow startup, so it's best to chain into it from a 5B or 2B. If you go into the j.214A and your opponent blocks it, boost to make it safe and then follow up with ANOTHER jumping overhead (you're still in the air from the j.214A, so any normal you do will be the jumping version after the boost), which can give you a full combo if not blocked or continued pressure if it is.

Rouga only has 2 lows, 2B and 2C, so it's advised to start pressure strings with 2B > 5C instead of an A normal. You have slightly less time to react to hits, but you get a better high low. Max range 2C can be followed up with 214A and you can almost freestyle after that. Going into 214B is a smart choice for the juggle afterwards, but there are other options.

41236C is Rouga's empty slide that moves you in, but doesn't attack. Only do this to move in after C normals, because anything weaker will put you at a disadvantage and get you punished. It should also be noted that 41236A is special cancelable, so you can use it as mix up to trick your enemy if they try to punish it. Generally if you want to move in after a pressure string, you should boost because it's much safer and will allow you to get true block strings on your opponent. 41236C can be used in mixup for throw attempts if your opponent is expecting the kick, but use it sparingly because it's not safe.

Combos Edit

Of every combo, unless stated otherwise, the full damage range of the combo will be given, with "-guts" damage in parentheses. "xx" denotes a special or super cancel of the previous move into the next move, ">" denotes a chain or link from the previous move to the next move, "*" denotes a required delay in the move to allow the full combo to land.

  • Always puts enemy in corner
  • Gives knockdown and okizeme
  • Second 214B can be partial charged or delayed to hit, but delaying is slightly easier
  • With 3 meter, you can activate (ABC) after any 214B bounce to and continue comboing freely, substituting out the [6A xx 623A] for [41236ABC] for an extra 810/838 damage (not worth it unless it will kill them)

6B xx j.214A xx Boost > *j.B > 214A xx *214B > 5B xx 214A xx *214B > 2C > 6A > *5C > 6A xx *623A

  • 4107~5468 damage (5183)
  • Always puts enemy in corner
  • Gives knockdown and okizeme
  • 5C should be delayed to hit as low as possible
  • 2147D = TK j.214D

  • With 3 meter, you can activate (ABC) after the first 5C and immediately 2147D (slightly strict), substituting the [6A xx 623A] for [41236ABC] for an extra 810/838 damage (probably worth it as you can end up with 5-6k damage)
