Introduction

Reiji is invited to participate in the Matrimelee tournament where the prize is a Princess's hand in marriage. Reiji decides to enter the tournament to test his Karate and has little to no interest in the Princess.

Overview

Reiji is a rushdown character at his core. He has access to a dive kick and a quick overhead. However, he does have some defensive attacks such as 236.A/C and 623.A/C.

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Extremely simple combos.
  • Instant overhead 8.C that can cancel into j.214.B/D (Dragon Dive Attack) on tall characters.
  • Near instant punishes with 2.B into B(x4) (Lighting Kick).
  • Extended hitbox on 5.CD that can be used as an anti-air.
  • Long hitbox on 5.D.
  • 3.B can be canceled on the first hit into j.214.B/D (Dragon Dive Attack) for overhead surprises.
  • Extremely simple hit confirms into 632146.C (Stress Shot) for big damage.
  • Guaranteed chip damage with dash B(x4) (Lightning Kick).
  • Has extended corner juggles with B(x4) (Lighting Kick).
  • Fast recovery on 236.A/C (Violent Palm Moving Wave).
  • 632146.C (Stress Shot) has an additional follow-up, 623.C, that can deal extra damage.
  • Unblockable meaty set-ups with 236-236.C (Ippatsu Ougi).
  • Struggles to get-in.
  • j.214.B/D (Dragon Dive Attack) is easily telegraphed and punished.
  • 623.A/C (Flying Dragon Punch) is extremely punishable on whiff and is not air unblockable.
  • D(x4) only hits twice and is punishable on hit.
  • 66.A/C is extremely hard to hit thanks to the punch sliding forward and it's short hitbox.
  • 236.A/C is punishable point blank.
  • 632146.C (Stress Shot) has limited combo routes to land.
  • 632146.C's follow-up only deals 5 additional damage in combos.
  • If not spaced properly, unblockable meaty 236-236.C (Ippatsu Ougi) can easily be rolled through and punished.
  • The 2.C > C natural chain is impossible to hit unless on cross-up.
  • cl.5B > D cannot link into 3.B without a microwalk.
  • Both 2.CD and 5.CD have extremely long start-up frames.
  • 2.CD is a seriously short launcher and struggles to anti-air.

20 10 Special

Mid 20 - - - - -

Air Unblockable.
Extremely long kick with equally as long start-up. Can be used as a decent anti-air if a jump in is read but can easily get beaten out by air normals. Links into Reiji's level 1 super if hit on the ground.

Mid 10 - - - - -

Air Unblockable.
This move has a decent disjointed hitbox but has some start-up before becoming active. At point blank, jabs will beat this move out but in neutral 5.CD will win. 5.CD is a key move to set-up Reiji's Unblockable Level 2 Super set-up.

10 5 Air Special High 6 - - - - -

A very sub-par air normal. Even though it looks like Reiji is doing an air uppercut, his knee is actually the hitbox. This move also takes a little while to become active and doesn't have enough hitstun to combo into Dragon Dive Attack.

This super can link from most heavy normals and will add nice damage to end combos with. This super has a follow-up listed below that can be done for one extra Stress Meter.

MM Reiji StressShot 623C.png
Follow-up to 632146.C
Total Damage Permanent Damage Cancel Guard Gauge Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv
36 18 N/A High - - - - - -

Follow-up to 632146.C that costs an extra Stress Meter. Cannot be done before the 1st hit or after the 8th hit of 632146.C. It is best if you cancel on the 7th hit for the most optimal damage. This follow-up is affected by scaling and does the same damage as the original super. However, in combos, it can provide 5-10 extra damage. Not really worth the meter unless you want to go for a kill.
