6. Breakdown of Guy's Moves


-Normal Moves-

-Standing Moves-


LP (Quick Jab)

-Very fast and has great recovery and startup times. Great
for combo starters.


MP (Abdomen Punch)

-Has a little slow startup time, but is still good for combo
starters.


MP Close (Elbow)

-Extremely fast and a great combo starter, but you have to
be next to the opponent for the move to be executed.


HP (Slow Jaw Punch)

-Slow startup time, but has good reach. Not that great of
a move regardless.


HP Close (Uppercut)

-Pretty fast and has a little slow recovery time, but good
for a counterattack. Must be next to opponent for move
to be executed.


LK (High Kick)

-A little slow startup time, but good for combo starters, and
can be used somewhat for Anti-Air purposes, though not
recommended.


LK Close (Foot Stomp)

-Very quick and has zero recovery time. Must be next to
opponent to execute this move. Can be used for combo
starters.


MK (Abdomen Kick)

-Has somewhat of a slow startup and recovery time, and
can be used for combos. Has decent reach on it.


HK (Strong High Kick)

-Slow startup and recovery times, but great for Anti-Air
purposes.



-Crouching Moves-


LP (Quick Jab)

-Same as with the Standing LP.


MP (Straight Punch)

-Same as with the Standing MP.


HP (Rising Elbow)

-Pretty powerful as an Anti-Air attack, but slow
startup. Great for comboing into a Bushin Senpu Kyaku.


LK (Foot Kick)

-Same as with the LP.


MK (Sweep Kick)

-Moves Guy forward as he sweeps the opponent. This move
will trip the opponent when used close. Otherwise, it just
does damage.


HK (Slide Kick)

-Guy's trip move. Similar to Bison's Crouching HK as well.
Bad if blocked, as it leaves Guy wide-open.



-Jumping Moves-

LP (Falling Fist)

-Lasts the whole time that Guy is in the air. Great for stopping
attacks, but leaves Guy open if he misses the opponent.


MP (Quick Air Punch)

-Very fast, which in turn leaves Guy wide-open if he misses
the opponent. Have to time it right to hit grounded opponents.


HP (Aerial Backhand)

-Same description as with the MP.


LK (Falling Leg)

-Same as with the LP.


LK Straight Up (Falling Heel)

-Same as with the LP, except you have to jump straight up
to use this move.


MK (Quick Aerial Kick)

-Same as with the MP.


HK (Aerial Backheel)

-Same as with the MP.


HK Straight Up (Aerial Backflip)

-A pretty interesting move in itself. You can use this as
either a way to stop Air attacks (aside from Zanku Hadoken,
of course), to stop ground attacks like Shungokusatsu, or simply
create more space between you and your opponent. Very nifty
in Guy's game.




-Special Normal Moves-


-Kubi Kudaki-

-Oh so slow.......but has good damage. Great in a mix-up style play,
but not so great if you're going for Aggressive or Conservative Styles...


-Kamaitachi-

-Pretty good move overall. It's great for mind games, as you can mix-up
the first part of the move, then later do the full version of the move, though
watch for the last part being blocked...


-Hiji Otoshi-

-This move is just like Izuna No Hiji Drop. Nothing special about this move
at all.





-Throws-



-Special Moves-


-Hozanto-

STRONG VS.

Projectile attacks (HP version only)
Rush attacks



NO EFFECT VS.

Teleport moves



WEAK VS.

Projectile attacks
Anti-Air attacks
Air attacks
Other attacks



-A fairly decent move in itself. The HP version
is capable of going under Projectiles, so use that to your
advantage from time to time.  Good to combo into other
attacks like Bushin Senpu Kyaku. Recovery time is rather
decent, though startup time is lacking a bit.



-Bushin Senpu Kyaku-


STRONG VS.

Rush attacks
Air attacks (excluding Zanku Hadoken)
Other attacks



NO EFFECT VS.

Teleport moves



WEAK VS.

Projectile attacks
Anti-Air attacks



-A copy of Ryu's Tatsumaki Senpu Kyaku (then again, that's
where he got it from). Pretty good move in the fact that it
comes up very quickly, though it's not safe on block. A
decent way to set up juggles in corners.



-Bushin Flip-

STRONG VS.

Projectile attacks
Rush attacks
Other attacks


NO EFFECT VS.

Teleport moves


WEAK VS.

Anti-Air attacks
Air attacks



-A pretty good move. It can jump over projectiles (though
sometimes, you may jump right into one of them), and it can
beat many moves (though with some Rush moves, it may be
beaten more often than not, such as Alex's Flash Chop). The
Bushin Izuna Drop is a good choice for damage if you can
manage to pull it off without getting countered, while the
Izuna No Hiji Drop is a great way to trick your opponent
and set Guy up for another combo. Great for mix-up and
mind games.



-Hayagake-


STRONG VS.

Rush attacks



NO EFFECT VS.

Teleport moves



WEAK VS.

Anti-Air attacks
Air attacks
Projectile attacks
Other attacks



-This move is not as bad as it may seem as above. You can
use this move to move towards your opponent quickly, trick
them, bait them, and more. The LK version simply moves you
quicker to them (doing LK again will cancel him running). The
MK version makes him do a sliding kick attack, which is good
to avoid projectiles, but tough to do. Great to pester opponents
though. The HK version is an aerial kick which cannot be blocked
by crouching, which makes for a great mind game. All in all, this
move will be one of your key elements in your Guy game.




-Super Special Moves-


-Bushin Hasso Ken-


STRONG VS.

Air attacks
Other attacks


NO EFFECT VS.

Teleport moves


WEAK VS.

Projectile attacks
Anti-Air attacks



-Good for juggling and Anti-Air purposes, but the damage it
does is pretty low (around 15%, IIRC). Your best bet is to
use this only when you see the neccessity or opportunity to
do so.




-Bushin Gorai Kyaku-


STRONG VS.

Rush attacks
Other attacks



NO EFFECT VS.

Teleport moves


WEAK VS.

Projectile attacks
Anti-Air attacks
Air attacks


-This move makes Guy attack in a straight line. Only use
when you're positive that you'll hit with it, otherwise you'll
be left wide-open afterwards. It does a little less damage
than Bushin Hasso Ken, but is still a weak Super Special
(as opposed to the other fighters in this game).
----------------------------------------------------------------
7. Guy's Style


Guy follows the Street Fighter Alpha system, as described below.


Data from psychochronic's faq

Link to faq:

http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/capcom_fighting_evolution_a.txt

*Air-Block: While jumping, hold B:
This feature helps you block your opponent projectiles
and jumping attacks while you're in the air. This does not
apply to ground attacks which can't be taken in the air.
If you air-block a jumping normal, you'll land right before
your opponent does, allowing you to strike first as they
land and recover.

*Alpha Counter: While Blocking, reverse QCB + P/K:
Known in Japan as the "Zero Counter". Also seen in CvS2
under the following Grooves: (C, A, S, N). This skill costs
50% of your meter which makes your status possible to
cancel the remaining guard stun on a blocked attack into
a simple counter-attack. It does a small amount of damage
and guarantees a knockdown making it useful to turn the
tables around or to simply give you a bit of space. Each
character here has two Alpha Counters, one of each, a
punch and a kick. Both types are good for countering
specific attacks, whether it's air, ground, crouch, special
or even super so switch between the two accordingly,
depending on who you're fighting and the situation. Also
going back to it's SFA3 counterpart, the Alpha Counter
can kill, so watch out!

*Custom-Combo: HP + HK when your Gauge is over 50%:
Known greatly as "V-Ism" in SFA3 and "A-Groove" in
CvS2. Once activated, your character can simply chain in
any normal and special attacks which can be done in a
repeated process. The meter now dates in to SFA3 where
you can simply activate at 50%. The meter now also dates
in to CvS2 as you can activate at 100% and finish off with
a Super Combo to dish out some big damage. As an
expert would know that there is a large reduction of
damage applied to each consecutive hit within. After
the first 9 hits, each other hit does a single pixel of
damage so beware ofthat effect. This ability is also good
because if the opponent blocks, then you have time to
switch your attacks and gameplan more quickly before
the time runs out. Also during activation, the screen will
darken and freeze for a slight second and you'll gain an
invincibility frame which is useful to avoid attacks and
projectiles freely! Activation with 50%, you'll be invincible
6 frames before and 4 frames after and activation with 100%,
you'll be invincible 6 frames before and 14 frames after.
Within the 50%-99% range, the higher the percentage, the
longer the invinciblity frames kick in. The bad part about
the Custom Combo system is that you can't block after
activation and should you get attacked, your meter goes
back to 0% instead of depeleting 50% of it just like in
SFA3 and CvS2. Use this wisely as you're rushing like
hell with no shield on you.

*Super Combo: Using your characters' designated
command, gauge calculated by percentile:
One also also taken from CvS2 A-Groove and that's the
ability to do a Super Combo. This tactic costs 50% of
meter and can be done in Custom Combo when activated
at 100%. Very useful if your characters' customs are weak
and need to use this for some damage.

*Ukemi "Safe Fall": Before touching the ground, hold Px3.
You can extend the roll by simply holding F:
Also known as the "Safe Fall" and it's been seen in SFA3
and CvS2 under the following 3 Grooves (A, N, K). This is
not the CvS2 version of it where you jump a bit back having
a tiny bit of invincibility frames at it, this version is nearly
exact as it was from SFA3, except it's a little slower. The
Ukemi allows the character to roll towards the opponent
just as you touch the ground. This ability can be useful for
avoiding projectiles, confusing your foes' wakeup strats
and any other attacks with heavy recovery. The first 17
frames of the full 43 frames are invincible but the last 26
frames of it are completely vulnerable to attack. This means
you're not safe and completely defenseless making this tactic
very risky to use. Ukemi must be used with extreme caution.



Guy is one that relies on his speed to see him through, and
his ability to combo into attacks and play mind games. This
comes into great play when playing against powerful opponents
like Ryu and Zangief, where getting close can mean certain doom
for Guy. The following two sections are dedicated to some combos
and styles of play for uping your Guy game.



-Combos Section-


1) Bushin Izuna Drop (Close), Hozanto, Hayakage, Custom Combo


-Why use Custom Combo? Many people probably will ask this one.
The reason being is that in a corner, you can make full use of Custom
Combos by constant juggling of the opponent, and the fact that you
can do more damage than a Super Special in the time you have with a
Custom Combo. Much more efficient, but if you're hit while in Custom
Combo, the combo ends, so watch it! The Hozanto is designed to knock
opponents back, which allows the follow-up Hayakage (of your choice).



2) Hayagake, Bushin Izuna Drop, Bushin Senpu Kyaku, Custom Combo


-Very similar to the last combo, except that you'll have to mix up the
Bushin Izuna Drop to get the Bushin Senpu Kyaku to work. If not,
then don't bother with Custom Combo. The rest is self-explanatory.



3) Standing LP, Standing MP, Standing HP, Bushin Senpu Kyaku,
Hozanto, Hayakage, Custom Combo


-The first three hits of the combo are going to be hard to pull off, but
key. They're slow and don't come out fast, not to mention that you have
to be next to the opponent for them to hit. The rest of the combo is
simple.



-Styles of Play-



Aggressive Style (Offense Game)


This is Guy's second best style by far. With his speed, you'll want to
put the pressure on your opponent at all times with LK Bushin
Senpu Kyakus and Hozantos. Custom Combos are the key here
as well, and throw out a Super Special from time to time. If you
end up on the defense, counter with Bushin Senpu Kyaku.




Conservative Style (Defense Game)


Stay away from this style! Guy is not to be used in any defensive
manner at all. He's not the turtler that Guile is, and he doesn't have
the defense that Alex and Zangief have either. If you end up here,
get out of it with Bushin Senpu Kyaku or Hozanto!




Mix-Up and Mind Style (Offense and Defense Game)



This is Guy's best style that he has. A combination of various Hayakages
and various Bushin Flips will keep your opponent on the defensive for
quite a while. Along with LK Bushin Senpu Kyakus and Hozantos, this
style is for any experienced Guy player.
