Far Slashes

Ss5sp kusaregedo 5Aa.png
Ss5sp kusaregedo 5Ab.png
An annoyingly large hitbox perfect for harassment, not the fastest thing on startup. Pretty minus when blocked and no cancel options but it's basically safe.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 5Ba.png
Ss5sp kusaregedo 5Bb.png
Properties: Cancelable. Recoil cancel on block. Deflectable.
His midrange poke with good air traction and a huge hitbox. Good for recoil cancelling into vomit at long-ish distance. Has trouble anti-airing if they're too close. Watch out for deflects. Cancel window is before the hitbox comes out; as Gedo raises his arm to swipe.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 5ABa.png
Ss5sp kusaregedo 5ABb.png
Properties: Deflectable.
Really big multihit punish. Kind of slow and later hits can miss if it connects at max range. Generally good move if there's an opening for it like after vomit connects.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 2A.png
Properties: Recoil cancel on block.
Funny little hand poke with great startup, reach, and frames on block/hit. Another annoying normal for them to get around. Recoil cancels aren't the best thing for you to do off of this but maybe cancelling into deflect will catch them mashing afterwards.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 2B.png
Properties: Hits low. Recoil cancel on block. Knockdown.
Big low-hitting sweep with good frames. Recoil canceling into command grab forms an OS because there's no cancel window on hit/whiff for this attack.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 2AB.png
Properties: Deflectable. Knockdown.
The hitboxes for this one fly all over the place. Click here too see an animated version. Effective as a preemptive anti-air, but very punishable if it whiffs. Generally misses grounded opponents.

Near Slashes

Ss5sp kusaregedo n5A.png
Another funny get-off-me attack. Can tick into command grab.
Ss5sp kusaregedo n5B.png
Properties: Recoil cancel on block. Deflectable.
Horizontal bone poke. Like with 2B recoil cancel can OS for a command throw setup. Can also tick on hit but it has slightly different timing from a recoil cancel.
Ss5sp kusaregedo n5AB.png
Gedo uses his head and hits you with it. Pretty good range, strong damage, kind of slow for a close heavy. Don't use this outside of guaranteed situations (i.e. vomit/punishes) pretty much.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 2A.png
Same as far 2A but no recoil animation.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 2B.png
Properties: Hits low. Recoil cancel on block. Knockdown.
Same as 2B.
Ss5sp kusaregedo n2AB.png
Properties: Deflectable.
Bone spikes. Great close range anti-air and hits ground.


Ss5sp kusaregedo 5BC.png
Properties: Hits high. Knockdown.
Goes pretty far forward and has an okay time beating out attacks. Hilariously punishable even for an overhead, but it has a cancel window near the end for command grab gimmickry.
Ss5sp kusaregedo u5BC.png
Properties: Hits high. Knockdown.
Same as 5BC.


Ss5sp kusaregedo 5C.png
Gedo sticks his foot forward. Cancel window comes out before the hitbox so this can keep you grounded for a command throw from neutral. Okay poke.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 6C.png
Properties: Knockdown.
Big dumb backflip anti-air. Huge hitbox, active for a good time, quick to start up but low damage. Very good at stuffing jumps but VERY punishable on whiff/block.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 2Ca.png
Ss5sp kusaregedo 2Cb.png
Weird tongue pseudo-anti air. Can keep opponents out and has decent range.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 3C.png
Properties: Hits low. Knockdown.
Big long tongue sweep. Very irritating for opponents to block but long punishable recovery.


Ss5sp kusaregedo jA.png
Properties: Hits high.
His only aerial that's even remotely safe. It's quick for the space it covers.
Ss5sp kusaregedo jB.png
Properties: Hits high. Knockdown.
Huge elbow drop. Active for a long time, great hitbox, hilariously punishable on block or whiff.
Ss5sp kusaregedo jAB.png
Hits hard, super active and covers a huge range beneath him. Always input at the beginning of the jump; active hitbox "starts" early but it doesn't go underneath him until later. Punishable as hell on block, but stuffs well (except for some anti-air) and can cross up.
Ss5sp kusaregedo jC.png
Properties: Hits high. Knockdown.
Butt drop. If you mess up a command throw input you get this a lot. Thankfully it's not that bad and can cross up. Like with the rest of Gedo's aerials outside of j.A very punishable on whiff/block.


Ss5sp kusaregedo 66A.png
Dashing n.5A. Good for tick throws.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 66B.png
Properties: Hits low. Recoil cancel on block. Knockdown.
Dashing 2B with all the same uses as it. Keeps the run's momentum so it has even better range.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 66AB.png
Properties: Knockdown.
Running n.5AB pretty much. Still unsafe, but good range. Safe way to hit opponents that step on your vomit puddles or somehow get grabbed by hands.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 66C.png
Dashing 5C with a really really really weird amount of plus frames. Not like Gedo really needs plus frames so stick with his other dashing normals for easier punishes/tick setups.


Ss5sp kusaregedo u5S.png
n.5A from all distances pretty much.
Ss5sp kusaregedo u2S.png
Slow bad version of 2A. Really slow.
Ss5sp kusaregedo ujS.png
Super short version of j.A. You basically can't hit with this.
Ss5sp kusaregedo u66S.png
66A but it knocks down. I guess you could use this.


Ss5sp kusaregedo 2146D.png
Deflect - 216D:
Big silly deflect. Can catch mashers on a recoil cancel if they're challenging recoil into vomit.
Ss5sp kusaregedo wpickup.png
Weapon Pickup - 5A:
Fairly fast.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 3xstart.png
Taunt Disarm - Start Start Start:
Don't ask me why his arm falls off. Don't ask him either.


Ss5sp kusaregedo 236S.png Akuryou Yobi - 236A: (can be used unarmed)
Really slow really punishable tracking unblockable that doesn't catch jumping opponents. Gives you time on hit to run forward and 66AB them, or 5AB if you're close. It even comes out on trade for whatever reason, though it'll just knock down. A funny gimmick at best.
This stops being a gimmick in time slow, however. It being unblockable forces the opponent into a situation where reacting poorly results in them getting Issen'd for big damage. Gedo's strong meditation helps a lot in this regard as well.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 214S.png Ieki Haki - 214A/214B:
The Vomit. If you've got space, you can do this. If you recoil 5B from far enough away, you can do this. Very active. Stops grounded approaches/fireballs and leaves them in a bunch of hitstun so you can smack them with your button of choice. Usually a heavy. Not a low so don't expect to set up weird funny unblockables with this.
Also works as an alternate to pursuit and you can try to do it multiple times until they get up.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 421C.png Niku Mochiage - 421C:
Weird pseudo-roll that avoids a surprising amount of stuff and is just kind of awkward to look at. Cancelling into this from roll can get you extra distance or avoid a punish. Can be used to buffer a command throw because of course.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 64258C.png Gedo no Rakuin Oshi - 6428C:
The fastest command throw in the game and second only to Gaira's in sheer damage, with huge range. It's punishable on whiff if the opponent is looking for it and requires some very fast inputs or very smart buffer strategies to consistently do. Thankfully the buffer is VERY lenient so you can do this after a lot of stuff, gimmicky or otherwise. If a move seems useless, try buffering a command throw afterwards if you're in range. You can mash it out during hit/blockstun if you're confident you won't jump out due to mistiming. Its damage is not influenced by Rage or the Sword Gauge.
Some ways to do this during a roll include:
Just doing the motion during a roll. Really hard to pull off unless you're REALLY fast. Gedo's roll having such a specific cancel window doesn't help with this at all.
Inputting the command throw as 643D58C. The 3D counts as a 2 as far as the buffer window is concerned so it's just on you to do the inputs right and time the 8C.
Inputting the command throw as 3D698741258C. There's less precise inputs involved but requires a pretty quick stick spin to work. It doesn't look like the right input at all but the buffer is really that lenient. Only issue is spinning the stick and returning it to neutral in time to 8C during the cancel window.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 341236421BC.png Doro Nage - 341236421BC:
Projectile used for humiliation more than anything else. Read the IRC chatlogs for this one.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 236CD.png Tobi Zutsuki - 236CD - WFT: (can be used unarmed)
Well at least you can do it unarmed. Gedo throws his head at you as a projectile. Deceptively active so you need to keep blocking until it's actually traveling back to him or you'll get disarmed and feel bad. Not really that good, and Gedo prefers meditating more often than not anyways.
Ss5sp kusaregedo 698741258CD.png Gedo no Emono Gari - 698741258CD - WFT:
Impossible input aside this WFT hurts a lot and is very fast. Not as fast as his regular command grab but it can be very threatening if you're able to represent it. Less punishable on whiff than his normal command throw as well. Can be cancelled into from a roll but the buffer isn't as nice. Being sloppy with your inputs will net a 236CD instead, and you don't want that.
Roll cancel buffer strats:
Inputting 3D698741258CD. It's the same as one of the above strategies for 6428C but the input buffer being more strict makes it harder by comparison.
Inputting 69874123D58CD. You need to hide the input during something that keeps you grounded, like a normal. It's more telegraphed but it's worth knowing.

Pick White Gedo.

<setrajonas> i'll play as gedo
<setrajonas> what do i do
<pockets`> sharkbutt all day
<pockets`> no if you actually want to play gedo, you need to #1 master his normals and #2 nail that  sharkbutt
<pockets`> 2A is his best general fuck off poke
<pockets`> 5B at range is good but it has a huge blindspot
<pockets`> you can cancel 5B's startup for vomit
<pockets`> he's too slow and kenki gauge doesn't affect the big throw so you meditate away all his rage
<pockets`> generally behind a puddle of vomit
<pockets`> 2B is pretty boss since it hits low and has a recoil animation
<pockets`> so up close you can douche out with 2B throw on block cancel
<pockets`> also works with 66B
<pockets`> it isn't safe so if you guess wrong you can get wrecked but 3C is crazy long range and sweeps
<pockets`> his 6C is sick anti air

<pockets`> and I have to work poop fling into my gedo game now
<bellreisa> do you ever do meaty poop fling?
<bellreisa> how about antiair poop?
<bellreisa> perhaps end a blockstring in safe poop?
<setrajonas> poop on you
<bellreisa> or perhaps, get a little daring and counterhit poop trade in your favor, so you can combo off the poop
<pockets`> I haven't been able to test the properties of poop extensively because I haven't been able to do it reliably
<Xenozip> there is no safe poop, he laughs afterwords for like a full second
<pockets`> I bet it's safe on backhit
<pockets`> safe backhit poop
<Rithli> random poop
<Xenozip> i think its too messy to do poop up close you gotta aim it from afar
<bellreisa> is it possible to cancel the recovery
<bellreisa> lolcancel the poop fling, if you will
<Xenozip> if you will
<bellreisa> a hotdog paella
<Rithli> hotdog poop
<Rithli> umepoop
<bellreisa> daigo poopmehara
<bellreisa> rare footage of daigo actually constipated
<setrajonas> the secret of his success
<Xenozip> needs custom combo in sirlin mode, infinite poop
<Rithli> umepoop is what you do if you know you're going to a buffet
<setrajonas> daipoop
<Xenozip> im quoting that
<bellreisa> shitpoo jinrai kyaku
<setrajonas> genei poop
<Xenozip> so if i do a poop video will it be youtube poop?
<bellreisa> f f f
<Lokanas> lol
<Lokanas> 7/10
<sphy> wow cant believe I checked this channel and saw poop discussion and 15 minutes later I check again and it's still going
<Lokanas> lol
<bellreisa> that's what you get
<bellreisa> go back to eating poutine
<bellreisa> pooptine
<pockets`> haha poop doesn't even do chip damage
<Xenozip> but chips can cause poop damage
<pockets`> it's funny because it's true
<pockets`> must troll comic with poop
<setrajonas> comic poop
<bellreisa> so when you land a major ch with gedo
<bellreisa> would you say...
<bellreisa> that shit was pringles
<Icekin> 5/10

<pockets`> attention, IRC
<pockets`> mauve got pooped to death
<mauve> fucking gedo
