Character Page Progress

This page is still a work in progress, consider joining as an editor to help expand it. Please update this character's roadmap page when one of the editing goals have been reached.

In Progress To-do
  • General Gameplan:
    • Do your best to describe how to play this character, change or add subsections based on what you would write as a guide.
  • Combos:
    • Add damage, meter gain/given numbers and video links to combos.
  • Players to watch/ask
    • If you know any players in particular that can be helpful for learning this character, please add them with, if possible a way to contact them (such as a Discord handle) and a name that can be searched in the match video database.
  • Overview/General Gameplan:
    • Add a short summary of this character with a list of strengths and weaknesses


Overview

Playstyle
link F-Ryougi is a simple midrange dominance character with good high damage confirms and safe pressure.
Pros Cons
  • Good general mobility: She has a stepdash unique to F-moon, and her airdash is fantastic in both directions as with H and C.
  • Very strong neutral: Her j.B controls the skies like her 2B does the ground. She outranges most of the cast and can use the aforementioned mobility to quickly reposition to catch airborne opponents landing.
  • Safe offense: While she struggles to open people up, almost any option she chooses is safe, as her buttons push her beyond mashing distance and she gets at least a meaty off of every hit or throw. Combine this with long cancel windows and good anti-jump buttons, and you can easily keep opponents pinned.
  • Menacing in Blood Heat: A fearsome character in BH, her AAD is one of if not the best reversal in the game that doubles as a 1f command grab. Her Last Arc does 7k damage unscaled, is full screen, and is near impossible to dodge.
  • Poor defense: While 2B can be a surprisingly useful abare button due to its range and speed, she really lacks a way to enforce her ability to mash. She completely lacks a good reversal outside of Blood Heat and system mechanics.
  • Weak air-to-ground game: Just like H moon, her best jump-in button is sadly j.C. None of her buttons are ideal for air approaches, making her weak to anti-airs in all forms, even sweeps and other lows.
  • Extended hurtboxes: F-Ryougi extends a lot of green, and most of her moves have very long total duration. Its easy to get counter-hit with poor spacing. In practice, this can make it difficult to antiair characters with extremely disjointed normals.
  • Frequent returns to neutral: Her airthrow gives her lackluster okizeme midscreen and only slightly better okizeme in the corner, whereas j.236B/C ender is usually a return to stacked neutral if the opponent doesn't risk a reset or down by not teching.
  • Low health: Ryougi has the 5th lowest effective HP in the game. She bleeds for her mistakes; F-Ryougi arguably more so than the other moons due to how often she returns to neutral and lack of a real reversal.
  • Long recovery on pokes: Her recovery on non-5A moves is at best 17 frames, a whiffed ground normal even if not punished could easily cost you your turn.


Move Descriptions

Frame Data Help
Header Tooltip
Move Box Colors

Light gray = Collision Box (A move lacking one means it can go through the opponent's own collision box).
Green: Hurt Boxes.
Red: Hit(/Grab) Boxes.
Yellow: Clash Boxes (When an active hitbox strikes a clash box, the active hitbox stops being active. Multi-hit attacks can beat clash since they will still progress to the next hitbox.)
Magenta: Projectile-reflecting boxes OR Non-hit attack trigger boxes (usually).
Blue: Reflectable Projectile Boxes.

Damage Base damage done by this attack.

(X) denotes combined and scaled damage tested against standing V. Sion.

Red Damage Damage done to the recoverable red health bar by this attack. The values are inherently scaled and tested against standing V. Sion.

(X) denotes combined damage.

Proration The correction value set by this attack and the way it modifies the scaling during a string. See this page for more details.

X% (O) means X% Overrides the previous correction value in a combo if X is of a lower percentage.
X% (M) means the current correction value in a combo will be Multiplied by X%. This can also be referred to as relative proration.

Circuit Meter gained by this attack on hit.

(X%) denotes combined meter gain.
-X% denotes a meter cost.

Cancel Actions this move can be cancelled into.

SE = Self cancelable.
N = Normal cancelable.
SP = Special cancelable.
CH = Cancelable into the next part of the same attack (Chain in case of specials).
EX = EX cancelable.
J = Jump cancelable.
(X) = Cancelable only on hit.
-X- = Cancelable on whiff.

Guard The way this move must be blocked.

L = Can block crouching
H = Can block standing.
A = Can block in the air.
U = Unblockable.

Startup Amount of frames that must pass prior to reaching the active frames. Also referred to as "True Startup".
Active The amount of frames that this move will have a hitbox.

(x) denotes frame gaps where there are no hitboxes is present. Due to varied blockstuns, (x) frames are difficult to use to determine punish windows. Generally the larger the numbers, the more time you have to punish.
X denotes active frames with a duration separate from its origin move's frame data, such as projectile attacks. In this case, the total length of the move is startup+recovery only.

Recovery Frames that this move has after the active frames if not canceled. The character goes into one frame where they can block but not act afterwards, which is not counted here.
Advantage The difference in frames where you can act before your opponent when this move is blocked (assuming the move isn't canceled and the first active frame is blocked).

If the opponent uses a move with startup that is at least 2 frames less than this move's negative advantage, it will result in the opponent hitting that move.
±x~±y denotes a range of possible advantages.

Invul Lists any defensive properties this move has.

X y~z denotes X property happening between the y to z frames of the animations. If no frames are noted, it means the invincibility lasts through the entire move.

Invicibility:

Strike = Strike invincible.
Throw = Throw invincible.

Hurtbox-Based Properties:

Full = No hurtboxes are present.
High = Upper body lacks a hurtbox.
Low = Lower body lacks a hurtbox.

Miscellaneous Properties

Clash = Frames in which clash boxes are active.
Reflect = Frames in which projectile-reflecting boxes are active.
Super Armor = Frames in which the character can take hits without going into hit stun.

Her fastest normal. Air unblockable. The range is not much for a F-Ryougi move, but it's still decent. If you really need to, you can use it as an emergency anti-air, but you'll probably get beat out. Good for frame traps and throw setups.

Air unblockable. Clashes. Long range like her other normals. Longer, even. If you don't whiff, it's STILL pretty safe. If charged it becomes unblockable, can be used once in a while to keep the enemy on their feet, but its pretty easy to hold shield on reaction. The charged unblockable wallslams and is jump cancellable, letting you get some extra advantage on hit (but no conversion).

A lot of range for a 2A. It doesn't cancel to itself, however. Hits mid. If this gets blocked at close range, it's actually safer on block to continue into rekka. At most ranges, though, it's fairly safe on block since most moves that are fast enough can't reach.

Amazing air to air move. It's fast, it's got a great hitbox, and it's long enough to easy combo after. It's a two hitter, but you'll cancel the second hit into j.C a lot of the time during combos 'cause the second hit adds minimal damage (maybe 250 if you get both second hits in an air combo) and risks them getting too high for your combo ender to connect.

Great move, but don't end on it in blockstrings. Moves you in real close. Plus, huge amounts of active frames. Definitely not safe on block unless you start it from far away. If you do it from that far, though, people can react and punish you. If you see them using something that takes a while, you can dash in and 3C for a fairly quick full screen punish.

Ryougi pins the opponent to the ground then stabs them in the chest. Lets you hit the opponent on the neutral frame as they get up and doesn't give them wakeup throw protection. This lets F-Ryougi do safe meaties against the whole cast after a throw and go for unmashable throw attempts if you take the corner.

Has completely different animations for whether this is done raw or during a combo. For the former, Ryougi will launch the opponent diagonally downward then slice them, resulting in a ground bounce. For the latter, she will drop the opponent straight below her then stab them like in her ground throw.

As an ender, this lets you hit the opponent on the neutral frame as they get up and doesn't give them wakeup throw protection. In practice, this isn't very useful as Ryougi's frame advantage off of airthrow is poor, but F-Ryougi gets to do safe meaties against Riesbyfe due to her slow wakeup.

  • Rekka enders.

236A: HARD knockdown. Use this when you want oki. If you're using this on a falling enemy midscreen, enter the 236 in reverse (214) because the rekka extender will cross under. Safe on block.
236B: Launcher. You can 2A/2B after this for combos. You use this for your bread and butter. Generally safe on block, but can be punished by extremely fast and long range moves like C-Ciel 236C.
236C: Stab through. Deals high damage and can be canceled into 214C for a combo if you're too far for the rekka launcher to hit, netting you good damage and a side switch. Unsafe on block, and will side switch on block at point blank.
236[C]: Unblockable (First 2 active frames). Obviously won't combo from rekka extenders. Don't hold this half way. This isn't Warc's 5{B}. If this gets blocked half charged, you eat 5k damage. Use this in blockstrings sometimes. It's got decent speed. If they get wise and start not respecting, you should just stop doing this move instead of trying to half charge it to catch them.
214X/D: Low hit. Same as using 236A/B~214D. If you're using this on a falling enemy midscreen (why?), enter the 214 in reverse (236) because the rekka extender will cross under.

Ryougi dashes in and does 6 rekka slashes in rapid succession followed by a jump cancellable B Ender. Most notable as her best OTG pickup after rekka hard knockdown. Due to hitgrab properties, all combos are burst safe after it hits. Starts off with 6 frames of invulnerability, so it's your only "reversal" type move. It's a terrible reversal, though. After that 6 frames wears off, you get a frame of you just running forward before you start attacking. A decent meaty can easy beat it out. Also, no invincibility any time after that. People who are careless on punishing this might get caught by the American reset, 'cause the last slash has a decent hitbox.

  • Ryougi's signature moonsault slashes.

Whiffs crouchers, is air unblockable, and wall slams. Looks kinda terrible outside of combos and it really is. It's a gimmicky anti air at best. Can be EX cancelled, so you can do some gimmicks with it. Has an additional hitbox during start-up that only "hits" if the opponent is in hitstun on the ground already, allowing it to combo off of normals despite its slow speed. If you are too far from the corner you can't combo off of the wall slam reasonably. You can use it for high corner carry combos at the cost of damage, which pretty much relegates it to style combos.

Unsafe on block overhead slash. Can be EX cancelled. The fact that one whiffs crouchers and the other is an overhead might make it sound like a reasonable overhead, but both are unsafe on block on a standing opponent anyway if not spaced super well, and the jump forward generally hurts your chances of actually being in that range unless you do it raw.

It hits practically everything in the air. In fact, you should be surprised when it whiffs and the enemy is in the air. Air unblockable. Can be air dash cancelled and even cancelled into air normals! You have free movement after this as if you just jumped off the ground. You can catch people with this if they aren't careful. This isn't invincible so it can still be beat out so don't just use it like an EX. Very useful for metered combo extensions and side switching.

If an enemy hitbox of the corresponding guard properties connects with the counter trigger box, she catches the enemy and throws them behind her into hard knockdown if they are close enough. Unlike the 623X series, 421A/B recovers quite quickly, though using them is still a risk, and unlike 623X and 421C, you cannot reliably combo off of these unless you are cornered AND spend meter for 236C.

Knife is thrown at a more downward angle. You STILL can't combo after it. Plus, it hits the ground even closer. And it whiffs point blank. Hits low. However, should your opponent be committing to fullscreen projectiles or whatnot, this move DOES cause hard knockdown, meaning should you catch them sleeping, you can make your way in. Don't count on it, though.

Ryougi activates her Mystic Eyes and lunges forward. If they are in a throwable state after she activates her eyes (they won't be), this is unblockable. This is so slow that no one will ever get caught by it unless they're respecting you so much that they're not even considering jumping. It's easily dodged by jumping.

Ryougi freezes the opponent in place, seeing the lines of death and cutting them apart. Active on frame 1, it is an unblockable super that works as a grab/throw. You have to jump before the super flash, or you'll be caught by it. Can OTG and blow through projectiles. You can't dodge it, as dodge runs out of active frames before the appearance of the lines. Very strong reversal at the cost of BLOOD HEAT.

General Gameplan

to-do: expand on Okizeme options, update Neutral, Pressure, and Defense

Neutral

Your attacks have extremely long range, so use that to your advantage. At mid distance, F-Ryougi is extremely strong. Your long range pokes means that the enemy can't do much if they don't want to have their move stuffed. At long range, your dash 3C allows you to quickly punish from across the screen, same as knife. j.B gives you great control in air to air. j.C is amazing against anyone who's above you. None of your air attacks have good angles towards the ground, however, so try to stay on the ground unless you're approaching with an instant air dash.

Pressure

If you get the enemy to block an attack, make them block more. Although almost every attack is negative on block, the pushback and long range means that you're almost always safe. Plus, F-Ryougi does significant guard damage. Rekkas are safe outside of the first hit and 236C ender. 22A allows you to reset. 3C lets you get back in if you push yourself too far. 5[C] is very slow, but having it shielded turns into rock paper scissors, since F-Ryougi can cancel into 623 series which allows a followup combo should you guess correctly. Against Half Moon characters, there's no guess game involved, so them shielding your 5[C] nets you free damage. It is also possible to jump cancel your 5[C] as it gives you the chance to block delayed shield counters and other options that can possibly beat you out of it, as well as making you very much on plus as you can react to their air tech and punish accordingly.

Okizeme

F-Ryougi's Okizeme out of airthrow as a combo ender is very poor on both midscreen and corner, as you're very limited with what you can follow up after landing (normally a meaty 2B, but this is not recommended as some characters can simply DP or even just shield out of it). Despite this, you can still force some scenarios with what you can do, by doing a meaty 2B, you can follow up with 22A and reset your pressure, or by throwing out a 214B as it can catch on jumpers and also force a Hard Knockdown on your opponent.

These following routes can cause HKD to perform Oki with:

IMPORTANT NOTE: The third 236A input MUST be reversed (effectively inputting it as 214A) as characters will tend to cross-under during the Rekka. This is only applicable after performing 2C > 3C either or, as it forces the enemy airborne.


Grounded Combo Ender

« … 2C > 3C > 236A~236[A]~236A »

This is your most important ender route as it is used in several combo routes, but done alone normally does not yield much damage and it's mainly used for OTG pickups with 236C instead. It is still worth learning, as you'll want to place down your Oki more often than not through this, as it is the most stable out of the rest.


Grounded Metered Combo Ender

« … 214C > j.B(w) > 2C > 3C > 236A~236[A]~236A »

One of your Go-to's Oki route options, a very safe meter dump both on midscreen and corner combos, as it is very easy to perform and provides good damage and good amount of frame advantage to perform your okizeme.


Aerial Metered Combo Ender

« … j.22C > 2C > 3C > 236A~236[A]~236A »

Use this to replace your Air Throw for your rejump ender. Requires knife and meter to perform, so it's rather costly to perform, but completely worth for its utility.


Once you set hard knockdown on your opponent, you can try mixing up by doing neutral jump drifted forward and safejump j.C or air backdash j.B as meaty. It is also possible to perform a tiger knee j.236B, depending whether you force a whiff on your second rekka or not, you can end up either back or forth of your opponent and set a left/right mixup on them, forcing them to guess.

Defense

When you're getting pressured, there's not much you can do. If you know what they're going to use next and you know that you can time a 236C perfectly so that its active frames fall perfectly within 236C's invulnerability frames, you can give it a try. That's really silly, though, and will probably end up with eating 5k damage. So just block. Block a lot. You have no real reversals and you're full moon, so you can't H-Bunker or easily Heat as a reversal. A good part of F-Ryougi is making sure that you don't get forced into the corner. Your 214C, despite not being an actual reversal, the fact it's invincible frame 1 and can move you out of the corner quickly, is a viable way to move you out of danger from it, however, it will still make you very much negative whenever your opponent reacts you to it quickly enough, and can punish you accordingly if you overcommit to it.

Combos

Combo Notation Help
Disclaimer: Combos are written by various writers, so the actual notation used in pages can differ from the standard one.

For more information, see Glossary and Controls.

X > Y X input is cancelled into Y.
X > delay Y Must wait for a short period before cancelling X input into Y.
X, Y X input is linked into Y, meaning Y is done after X's recovery period.
X+Y Buttons X and Y must be input simultaneously.
X/Y Either the X or Y input can be used.
X~Y This notation has two meanings.
  1. Use attack X with Y follow-up input.
  2. Input X then within a few frames, input Y. Usually used for option selects.
X(w) X input must not hit the opponent (Whiff).
j.X X input is done in the air, implies a jump/jump cancel if the previous move was done from the ground.

Applies to all air chain sections:

  • Assume a forward jump cancel if no direction is given.
  • Air chains such as j.A > j.B > j.C can be shortened to j.ABC.
sj.X X input is done after a super jump. Notated as sj8.X and sj9.X for neutral and forward super jumps respectively.
dj.X X input is done after a double jump.
sdj.X X input is done after a double super jump.
tk.X Stands for Tiger Knee. X motion must be buffered before jumping, inputting the move as close to the ground as possible. (ex. tk.236A)
(X) X is optional. Typically the combo will be easier if omitted.
[X] Input X is held down. Also referred to as Blowback Edge (BE). Depending on the character, this can indicate that this button is held down and not released until indicated by the release notation.
]X[ Input X is released. Will only appear if a button is previously held down. This type of input is referred to as Negative Edge.
{X} Button X should only be held down briefly to get a partially charged version instead of the fully charged one.
X(N) Attack "X" should only hit N times.
(XYZ)xN XYZ string must be performed N times. Combos using this notation are usually referred to as loops.
(XYZ^) A pre-existing combo labelled XYZ is inserted here for shortening purposes.
CH The first attack must be a Counter Hit.
Air CH The first attack must be a Counter Hit on an airborne opponent.
66 Performs a ground forward dash.
j.66 Performs an aerial forward dash, used as a cancel for certain characters' air strings.
IAD/IABD Performs an Instant AirDash.
AT Performs an Air Throw. (j.6/4A+D)
IH Performs an Initiative Heat.
AD Performs an Arc Drive.
AAD Performs an Another Arc Drive.

Most j.236B enders can be switched for an airthrow. End in j.236B for extra damage and meter charge time. End in airthrow for okizeme. Let j.B hit once if you plan on ending with air throw. When doing 236A~236[A]~236A midscreen on an airborne opponent, enter the last 236A in reverse (214A), as 236[A] will cross under temporarily. In the corner, enter 236A normally.
