======**INTRODUCTION**======

Hey yo everyone, this is haitianhomey aka Ruuku1012 here. I'm writing this 
hoping to keep the Naruto Gekitou Ninja Taisen community alive as well as 
promoting high level competitive play. Killer B is a very fun character to 
play as and he requires good knowledge of the game's engine, as well as good 
use of yomi (mindgames/prediction). All information in this guide is based on 
over 5 years of experience with this game series including offline play, 
online play, and tournaments against high level competitive players from 
various regions. This guide will not include strategies, tips, or tricks to be
used against computer opponents as it meant for 1 on 1 player vs player 
matches. If you have any questions, you can contact me at ledou001@fiu.edu.

4.======*GENERAL GAME STRATEGY [GGS]*======

1) YOUR OFFENSE IS BEING BLOCKED BY YOUR OPPONENT:

Of course, delaying combo strings is the basic universal mixup. In Killer B's 
case his throws have good range and can lead to great damage. Considering that
most of his moves create a decent amount of hit stun, mixing up between up 
between attacks and throws always is a great idea. Being that doing anything 
past B is unsafe, it is best to follow up with a running throw attempt or bBB 
when predicting a counter attack. Thanks to their fast recovery, by themselves
bBB and dBB can be used to create trap to force you opponent to waste his knj 
if he tres to SS or can lead to counter hits when he tries to interrupt. fA is
a great mixup tool when canceled. The follow ups include throws if your 
opponent does nothing, finishing the combo string to stop your opponent from 
interrupting with attack or throw, or jBY when predicting a throw. When your 
opponent is standing up, jB can be used to create an ambiguous situation so 
that your opponent doesn't know which way to block.

2) YOUR OFFENCE SUCCESSFULLY HITS YOUR OPPONENT:

Other than the combos listed in the bread and butter combos section, there's a
number of tricks or traps that can be used to knock your opponent down or bait
counter hits and knj. When your opponent is close to having or has enough knj 
meter, you can either end with safe moves, knock down moves, or anti-knj moves
which can be found in the move list analysis section.

3) YOUR OFFENSE SUCCESSFULLY CONNCETS AS YOUR OPPONENT ATTEMPTS TO ATTACK:

Whenever some attacks succefully hit while your opponent was attempting to 
attack you, they will create longer hit stun allowing for specific extra 
combos or follow ups. You can also recognize the stun by the brighter stun 
animation. Those can be found in the bread and butter combos section.

QUICK REFERENCE:

1) On block:
B, fBB, dBB, bBB, fAAB, cross up jBY

2) On NH:
B->BnB depending on opponent knj meter
dBB->dY if opponent has high knj
dBB->Y BnB if opponent has low knj
fAAA/B
fA->dY if opponent has high knj
fA->Y BnB if opponent has low knj
fA->jBY BnB after prediction 
jBY->BnB

3) On CH:
bBB/dBB/fB->dX BnB
bB->B BnB, dX BnB, fA, fB, dB
