Introduction

White Buffalo is a pure-hearted man who appreciates the little things in life. He does not speak much, so people write him off as serious and stoic. But, in reality, he is naive and clumsy which is why he prefers not to speak much. White is also an avid collector of shiny and interesting objects such as jewelry, shiny objects, wooden carvings, etc. White entered the Matrimelee tournament in hopes of earning a bride and adding new objects to his collection.

Overview

White is a very hard-hitting defensive charge character. Although he hits like a train, he moves like a turtle thanks to his super slow walk and run speed. White does have the highest health out of the cast and highest raw normal damage.

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Big combo damage.
  • Stress Shot super is a terrific anti-air.
  • Arrow shot is an excellent projectile that can go over some projectiles.
  • Extremely long and damaging D normals.
  • 66.D is an excellent poke tool with big damage. Pair it up with 6.B and it can catch guard cancels.
  • Buffalo Storm destroys active projectiles and remains active until it is off-screen.
  • Buffalo Storm's release kick can be timed as an anti-air.
  • Instant overhead 9.B that can be canceled into heavy Flying Elbow or a landing grab. Keeps the opponents guessing.
  • 5.CD is an excellent anti-jump in normal thanks to its slight pullback on startup.
  • Extremely slow walk and run speed.
  • Very slow recovery on all attacks.
  • All heavy normals, supers and specials are unsafe on block.
  • Projectiles can be easily rolled, jumped over, or ignored by invincibility frames.
  • Can easily be stuffed out by faster attacks.
  • Both versions of tackle blow are unsafe on block.
  • Only heavy tackle blow's 623.C follow-up is safe on block.
  • Buffalo storm takes a while to start-up.
  • Stress Shot needs to be used on a hard read and can easily be punished on whiff and block.
  • Arrow shot is unsafe point-blank thanks to its big recovery.
  • Struggles to make a quick comeback thanks to his predictable approaches.
  • Ippatsu Ougi command grab is very difficult to land raw due to its very short activation range.

Strategy

White is not the best character. He has extremely slow walk/run speed and slow move recovery. In order to make up for his extremely slow speed, he has to play extremely smart and calculate the risk of approaching.

Approaching an opponent with White is extremely difficult due to his slow speed. But, White can get in with his 9.D. White's 9.D has an extremely large hitbox and can cross-up. For a grounded approach, using 2.A or 2.B is your best and safest option. You can cancel both normals into light Tackle Blow, which Hard Wall Slams and can give access to a cross-up attempt. White can also use light Buffalo Storm and follow the projectile. Forcing them to block, jump or roll the Buffalo projectile. This sets up a grab, an anti-air juggle, or even a cross-up. Once you do manage to approach and hit the opponent it is crucial that you know White's combo options and routes so you can capitalize on his big damage and take the life lead. You will have to be very careful if your opponent blocks White's attacks he is VERY MINUS on block for all special attacks and supers.

White's Heavy Buffalo Storm is excellent for playing defensively. You can hold it and release it whenever you want. Both versions of Buffalo Storm have a great anti-air kick that is active upon releasing the special. White's level 1 Stress Shot is also excellent at catching jump-ins due to it being air unblockable. White's Stress Shot is also a projectile, so if White ever gets hit it'll trade for big counter hit damage. However, the level 1 is extremely unsafe on whiff and block. It's an easy punish for those who are patient so use it sparingly. White also has a great Standing CD, or great attack. It's extremely fast, causes a hard wall slam, and is special cancelable. Use his standing Great Attack to check unsafe approaches.

White is a very heavy hitter with simple combos. But, he's super slow, very unsafe on block, and lacks solid approach options; if your opponent doesn't know the matchup it'll be easy. If they do, expect a difficult time winning.

10 5 N/A Mid - - - - - -

Air Unblockable.
To use the 623.C follow-up you must input it right after the first hit of heavy tackle blow. On hit, it launches and sets up for an air grab for extra damage.

  • Use [4]6.C > 623.C to make block strings safe thanks to its big pushback. However, it is punishable on whiff.

Buffalo Storm

[4]6.B/D
White S 46K.png
Buffalo Storm

20 10 N/A Mid - - - - - -

White's main pressure tool and can be buffered out of many attacks to keep the pressure going.

[4]6.B is air unblockable, but does less damage and has less speed. This version is used the most to keep opponents pressured.
[4]6.D is NOT air unblockable, but can be held for additional damage and speed.

Buffalo Storm's release kick is air unblockable and is a terrific anti-air. You just have to time it correctly.

Total Damage Permanent Damage Cancel Guard Gauge Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv Block Adv
89 45 N/A Command Grab - - - - - -

Soft Wall Slam.
Very short-range activation, but deals massive damage raw or at the end of a combo. It is important to time it so the opponent doesn't have a rage explosion after recovering so they do not regain health back.

Whiffing close will flash the Ippatsu Ougi super flash with an animation. Whiffing it long-ranged will immediately deplete Stress Meter without any super flash or animation.
