Introduction

Robert E. O. Speedwagon, a major ally in Phantom Blood, the first part of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, is a "stance change" type of character who can call between two companions in order to adapt to the situation at hand. When accompanied by Tattoo, Speedwagon's kit is focused on starting high-damage combos and applying pressure; on the other hand, when accompanied by the Kempo Fighter, Speedwagon's gameplan is centered around pestering the opponent in neutral.

On offense, Speedwagon can be quite formidable thanks to his wide array of pressure options, strong jump-in normals, and above-average damage output. "Don't try to bluff, you rich little snot!" is his main offensive tool both on block and during combos. Thanks to it being a multi-hitting projectile, Speedwagon is able to Flash Cancel this move and mix the opponent up during blockstrings. The move also does a good amount of Guard Damage, so pressure strings often leave the opponent's Guard Gauge low. When accompanied by Tattoo, Speedwagon gains access to the move "That does it!", a fast overhead that can lead to high damage.

Speedwagon has the option to swap Tattoo for his other companion, the Kempo Fighter, when battling at long range. While he does have access to his projectile in both stances, the Kempo Fighter offers another neutral tool in "Aren't you acting tough!", a disjointed aerial attack that causes a hard knockdown, also acting as a great anti-air due to its angle of descent. Alternating between this move and his projectile is an effective combination, making it hard for the opponent to close the gap.

On defense, Speedwagon can struggle a bit due to the lack of any reversal options besides HHA and GHA, both of which are meter-dependent, slow, and unsafe.

  • Ogre Street: Speedwagon can utilize his unique Style to switch between two different companions, altering some of his moves.

Pros Cons
  • Strong Pressure: Speedwagon has strong pressure and mixup options on block with "Don't try to bluff, you rich little snot!" and his fast overhead "That does it!".
  • Good Aerial Normals: All of Speedwagon's jumping normals have very active hitboxes (j.L and j.H in particular), which makes them great jump-in options.
  • High Damage: Speedwagon's metered combo routes do very good damage, especially when starting combos with Tattoo as the active companion. Similarly, his GHA is one of the most damaging in the entire game.
  • No Good Reversals: Speedwagon lacks any practical defensive/reversal options, meaning he will be open to setups that other characters could avoid.
  • Stubby Normals: Speedwagon's standing and crouching normals do not have very good reach, meaning he will struggle with matchups against characters who have better normals than him.

Ogre Street

Speedwagon possesses his own unique Style in the form of "Ogre Street". By pressing the Style button, Speedwagon can switch his companion to either Tattoo or the Kempo Fighter (referred to as The Asian in-game); most of Speedwagon's special moves change depending on which companion is out (rounds start with Tattoo). Additionally, Speedwagon can use 0.5 HH Gauge to swap between the two in a combo with each version of 6H.

As they act separately from him, attacks performed by either Tattoo and the Kempo Fighter will not trigger counters. They will also continue performing their respective moves even if Speedwagon is attacked; inversely, they themselves can be struck by the opponent directly to interrupt their moves, even if Speedwagon himself isn't hit. As an additional rule, any move involving either of the two would not be possible if they're a set distance away from Speedwagon, needing to move to his back in order to be used again.
