|description= Third part of the Rekka, with huge damage on success and potentially round-ending risk if you don't do it right. This move has a very bizarre way of fully connecting. The easy way of explaining it is that you need to aim for the center of your opponent, or the move will fail. What this means is that your opponent's hurtbox is much smaller during this attack, and succeeding requires you to hit them with essentially pixel perfect spacing. If you manage to land it consistently then your damage output as a whole will dramatically increase, if you're okay with the idea of dying for not doing it right.
 +
 
 +
This move is separated into 4 strikes that will be explained here. If the horizontal hitboxes connect with the opponent he will be reset and the move will fail automatically, you must time it so the opponent gets hit by the vertical hitbox only. Upon failing any of the three strikes, Enja will slump in disappointment after landing. This of course means your opponent has all the time in the world to think of what big punish they will unload on you. If you mess up the Rekka because they flew too far forward (i.e. they were behind you) they can get a backhit punish.

If you do do this though, you can mash for more hits and damage and follow through with 2BC afterwards.

Enja players might not see a downside, but the faster animations wind up breaking a lot of interactions and often can result in softlocking the game and generally just making it unplayable. As such, tournaments usually ban this.

This move chips multiple times and is a nice trick when cancelled into and can serve as a nice anti-air with good predictive timing. But while unhittable, Enja can still be grabbed out of the startup fairly easy.

:This sounds like a dream come true for any starry eyed Enja main. A way to freely speed him up and effectively remove one of his biggest weaknesses? Well, no. It does indeed make him super fast and opens up all sorts of fancy new combo opportunities, but it's banned in serious competitive play. Not because it makes Enja "too good," but because it completely breaks numerous interactions from pretty much anything you can think of. His throw animation is sped up to the point where the canned followup will whiff so he can easily combo afterwards, hitting him with Mizuki's WFT will softlock the round until time runs out, etc. It's a neat little thing to know for dumb casual fun this will not fly in a tournament setting.

:Enja forms a tall pillar of fire around him and becomes unhittable for the duration. After this, he will slump down and be open to attack. This super is below average as it telegraphs and is easy to punish on block, but can be anti-air if they are jumping over you for some reason. You can end the fire pillar earlier by hitting ABCD at any point, but the slump will still happen. Most of the time you're better off taking advantage of the rage damage multiplier than attempting this. Note: If you perform the ABCD cancel on the exact frame (almost always the first frame of the attack) that the opponent is hit by this super, Enja will not lose his rage meter while still doing full damage and disarming. This allows you to dish out even more damage than before and remains the attack of choice for confirmed anti-air and confirmed punishes.

|description= Enja becomes upper body invincible and releases this incredibly tall flame move. It can catch opponents jumping over you, but the horizontal reach is really bad so that along with the slow startup makes its usability as an anti-air niche. Thanks to Enja's low patience he can do this move quite often during the match. The main problem outside of it simply being finicky to hit with is that Enja slumps over afterwards, leaving him open to an easy punish if it doesn't connect. Can be canceled at any moment by pressing ABCD, but he still slumps over and can be punished regardless.
  
|}
+
This move has a glitch related to the ABCD cancel. If you cancel the move exactly on the frame where the opponent is hit by this then you will hit once for increased damage, disarm your opponent and keep your POW. If you hit your opponent on the first frame of the attack (this is usually the case), then the super flash makes timing this trick a breeze. If you are serious about your Enja then you'd benefit greatly from learning it.

Introduction

"You can't shake hands with a clenched fist." You can't catch hands with shackles that heavy, either.

Enja is a hard hitting powerhouse with extreme mobility issues. His best strategy involves sticking to the other person like glue and putting as much pressure as possible on them. Enja can rarely afford to wait for the opponent to come to him and has to spend a great amount of effort to stay in range of some characters. However, if successful, he has the ability to deal incredible amounts of damage in the blink of an eye. Enja's rage meter charges up faster than anyone else, giving him even more power throughout the match. He has a slow dash, a very low jump, and none of his attacks extend beyond short range. His major problems become painfully apparent if he starts getting outranged or repeatedly knocked out of the air during his chase. He is considered a difficult character to play in general, though the advantages vary wildly in the various matchups.

Strengths Weaknesses
  • High damage. Obviously.
  • Jump arc lends itself to constant pestering with j.AB.
  • Surprisingly versatile close range mixup, with both high and low potentially leading to great reward.
  • Rage fills up incredibly fast, and great defense value to complement it.
  • A few correct guesses can convincingly win you the round.
  • Rikudou Rekka requires ridiculous execution or equally ridiculous luck to actually use.
  • Sluggish movement speed and bad jump arc for approaching from a distance.
  • No real way to combat projectile zoning other than not getting hit.
  • Bad overall approach makes capitalizing on frequent rage periods difficult.
  • Longer range normals are slow and largely unsafe.
  • Meditation holds almost no benefit for his time slow.
  • You either blow the opponent up or they effortlessly shut you down.

A slow poke extending an arm's length forward with decent startup and recoil options, but making him a bigger target-- he has to stand still for a moment and none of his cancels are truly safe. Not that great, but he needs this attack to get hits in sometimes.

A flaming backhand with better range and fantastic damage, but extremely punishable. This is Enja's second strongest move and the best guranteed damage he has. Importantly, you can combo into this beast after landing BC on a crouching opponent.

A damaging upward flip/swipe that has minimal horizontal but reaches into the air above him. For a heavy this is much safer on block than whiffed, but in both cases can be cancelled if you think they will try to punish this. This slugger can be decisive in corner mixups to catch/OS jump attempts.

A jumping overhead with the unique property of stumbling opponents that are low blocking, while leaving them standing otherwise. There are a few options after getting a stumble, but the most common followup is 5AB.

Not bad for an unarmed overhead, featuring greater active frames than armed 5BC, but bad because it's Enja's regular 5BC without any of the parts that make it any good.

This powerhit gives Enja his air game and allows him to move and attack at the same time. It reaches upward, which fits nicely with Enja's low jumps, and is still capable of hitting people on the ground. Counter everything with this if you can.

A weak attack that is used to out-prioritize in the air and for its better hitbox on the way down. Lack of hitstop also makes this a mean tool to open mixups on a jumpin.

Enja's infamous Rekka. Landing the full sequence is probably the hardest thing to do consistently in the game, because its damage on a successful connect is ridiculous, but messing it up can very easily get you killed.

The first step is a slow slide kick with nice range and very punishable recovery. It can low-profile a lot of attacks, but it's a poor method of getting in because of the slow recovery. On hit, it will reset the opponent. You can either stop there and keep the pressure and mixup train going, or continue on to:

The second step of Enja's Rekka. A double fist bash that sends the opponent flying to the wall before bouncing back towards you, setting them up for the third part of the Rekka. There's no extra pressure to be gained from stopping here.

Sometimes this move can send your opponent to the wall behind you if positioned awkwardly enough. You can still complete the full thing off of this, just be wary of it messing with your timing.

Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Backhit Adv Block Adv
6 - 173 - - -

Third part of the Rekka, with huge damage on success and potentially round-ending risk if you don't do it right. This move has a very bizarre way of fully connecting. The easy way of explaining it is that you need to aim for the center of your opponent, or the move will fail. What this means is that your opponent's hurtbox is much smaller during this attack, and succeeding requires you to hit them with essentially pixel perfect spacing. If you manage to land it consistently then your damage output as a whole will dramatically increase, if you're okay with the idea of dying for not doing it right.

This move is separated into 4 strikes that will be explained here. If the horizontal hitboxes connect with the opponent he will be reset and the move will fail automatically, you must time it so the opponent gets hit by the vertical hitbox only. Upon failing any of the three strikes, Enja will slump in disappointment after landing. This of course means your opponent has all the time in the world to think of what big punish they will unload on you. If you mess up the Rekka because they flew too far forward (i.e. they were behind you) they can get a backhit punish.

Flailing upward kick thingy. Not an anti-air. You can wiggle your stick left and right and mash buttons to increase the amount of hits and damage, up to 15 hits. The only real place to land this is a point blank combo, which is not reliable at all.

Enja's version of exploding pants, where he blows up and reappears some distance back. He doesn't actually move that far with this move, so it's easy to bait and punish, and isn't a good way to escape. He's strike invincible during this (you can still be thrown!), so it lends itself to stuffing most things the opponent tries to hit you with. The damage and chipping potential are also both quite nice. Catching punish attempts on a recoil cancel is this move's other major use, but the characteristic high risk is still there, especially since nothing's stopping the opponent from just throwing you out of this.

This sounds like a starry eyed Enja main's dream come true. Inputting this bizarre command will result in all of Enja's animations speeding up and generally looking quite silly. Enja players might not see a downside, but the faster animations wind up breaking a lot of interactions and often can result in softlocking the game and generally just making it unplayable. As such, tournaments usually ban this.

Here are some of the myriad interactions that are broken by the speedup:

  • His grab's built-in follow up will miss, turning the grab into an unblockable combo starter.
  • Enja also gains several backhit infinites as a result of this, and he can easily set them up with a back throw.
  • If Mizuki's WFT connects, the game will be soft locked until the time runs out.

Enja becomes upper body invincible and releases this incredibly tall flame move. It can catch opponents jumping over you, but the horizontal reach is really bad so that along with the slow startup makes its usability as an anti-air niche. Thanks to Enja's low patience he can do this move quite often during the match. The main problem outside of it simply being finicky to hit with is that Enja slumps over afterwards, leaving him open to an easy punish if it doesn't connect. Can be canceled at any moment by pressing ABCD, but he still slumps over and can be punished regardless.

This move has a glitch related to the ABCD cancel. If you cancel the move exactly on the frame where the opponent is hit by this then you will hit once for increased damage, disarm your opponent and keep your POW. If you hit your opponent on the first frame of the attack (this is usually the case), then the super flash makes timing this trick a breeze. If you are serious about your Enja then you'd benefit greatly from learning it.
