Introduction

Owner of several WSOP bracelets after killing his opponents with oversized playing cards.

Genjuro is a well-rounded character. He has plenty of damage available and a lot of good options at any point in the fight, topped off with great control of the airspace. Every version of his Rekka is very punishable, they should be confirmed into or covered as a mixup instead of being used in the neutral game. Although he is famous for his bouncing card, know that it becomes increasingly difficult to force an opponent to block it as they become aware of the matchup. This game has many ways of dealing with projectiles, and many ways of making okizeme difficult to implement, but Genjuro is blessed enough to make it work better than most others.

Strengths Weaknesses
  • He's got a little bit of everything.
  • Scary mixups that cover multiple options at once.
  • Card projectile affords him actual okizeme.
  • Top notch DP means jumping in on him can be very difficult.
  • Big punish damage.
  • Cool extra visual effects on Issen.
  • Jumpin buttons are relatively easy to anti-air.
  • His best punishes and pressure sequences drain sword gauge quickly.
  • He loses fireball wars hard until he gets in.

This hitting low and having as good reach as it does means you can throw it out with little fear of deflects (catch counters are another story). Be careful of hops when using this. Doesn't lead to much on hit -- it may be used while the bouncing card falls, but even that won't get much other than a small bit of free damage.

Note that the second hit where his leg is up whiffs on all grounded characters except Kusaregedo.
Kick combo attack -- the hit where Genjuro lowers his leg is an overhead that connects starting on frame 16, one of the fastest grounded overheads in the game. This is a key move in Genjuro's arsenal and can be cancelled on the overhead hit for combos or pressure. The cancel window lasts long enough for some whiff gimmicks against the unaware. The anti-air hit might come in handy in specific matchups but the resulting animation is so long that even if cancelled he can be left open to punishment anyways.

A quick DP with uses for all three versions. The A version, by far the most useful, comes out real fast and covers a huge chunk of space near your head. The B version has him jump up and forward more if you know where they'll be at. The AB version reaches surprisingly far and fast for a DP, but loses the hitbox up close and goes over a lot of standing characters -- primarily good against characters with wacky air movement.
All versions deal increased damage if you hit near the top of the attack, otherwise it doesn't do that much. This attack shouldn't be overused, but 623A gives outstanding priority at close range when needed.

The card projectile with huge hitstun and relatively limited travel distance. This move is a big part of how you can get your corner pressure rolling, such as if you meaty with it. Probably Genjuro's best move. If blocked, the card will bounce into the air and come back down for a second hit if Genjuro has held down the button used to start the attack. The card bounce attack hits high wherever it comes down. The startup for this move is quick enough to be fairly safe and you're barely disadvantaged if blocked, but it still telegraphs and can be interrupted, jumped, or rolled under. The A version travels slower and bounces lower than the other two. The A and B versions will come down where they were blocked/bounced, while the AB version will come down approximately one backdash behind them.
A classic card bounce setup is to rush in with the low-hitting 66B, which will cause an unblockable situation if the card comes down on them. If you're already close to where the card bounced, you can also time this setup with 2B, or even closer, 3C->8BC. It's a relatively low damage option, and closer versions can easily lose to run up throw mash, but it'll get you started. There are plenty of other ways to take advantage of the card bounce pressure; the real strength of this move isn't in unblockables, but rather that you have countless options, and the opponent can't possibly react to all of them. Card into blatantly unsafe option might as well be a mixup because you've got the card over their head. Additionally, if they get caught jumping into the card trying to escape, you can follow up with a heavy pursuit.
The card setup is far from inescapable, but it does force them into the defensive and has the potential to do heaps of damage since the bounce gives you plenty of time to hit them with 5AB if it connects. And don't worry if your ingenious meaty card doesn't get blocked, because a 214A connecting at almost any spacing guarantees a 5AB followup as well.

Standard unblockable command grab, which means it's good. Used for roll cancel mixups, tick throw setups, and mashing through gaps in pressure. Doesn't do too much damage, but leaves you in a nice position to try and mix on their wakeup.

Genjuro's Rekka type move. You can proceed to any of the following slashes as long as the previous one didn't whiff, and followup slashes can also be done as 214S. The generous hitstun and cancel window lets further steps easily be hitconfirmed. Very good when combined with card bounce setups. Continuing the sequence after being blocked is probably not a good idea but it can catch bad punish attempts.

  • 236A
Very unsafe, even on the first rekka. Hit-confirm into this move.
  • 236B
Slower than A but travels further. Crosses up at closer ranges.
  • 236AB
The more crossup version. Very useful, but kind of easy to see coming and jump over, and the cancel window is less lenient than the other two. If read and cross-blocked, you will be in a bad position.

Genjuro swings his sword rapidly in front of him. If it connects, he will follow through by slowly impaling them and knocking them down. Hitbox is super disjointed, easily sniping outstretched hurtboxes and beating other attacks. At worst you'll get a trade. The first two versions are stationary while the third presses forward a fair distance. This move chips well but has a noticeable startup and can be jumped out of easily, limiting it usefulness. Generally punishable if blocked, too.

Genjuro creates a card in front of him, and if it connects, they will be launched upward and auto-comboed for the standard super damage. There's some upper body invincibility during the startup too. This super is easy to combo into from pretty much any punish button, and also makes his 5C overhead extremely threatening to get hit by. It's also very difficult to punish this with a heavy slash because of how quick it recovers on block. On the flip side, it is very unsafe on whiff with a huge recovery afterwards. It can be stuffed by a lot of aerials and sometimes will graze them in the air and go through recovery, allowing them to hit you when they land. This means that it isn't suited for anti-air duty.
