Robo-Azuma

General

Background

Robo-Azuma? Azuma-Robo? is a robot created by Michelle, designed to mimic Azuma’s appearance. It will carry out its orders at any cost.
It can be found late at night in dark alleys, capturing those who cross its path to take back to Michelle’s lair for experiments.
It will fight back when in danger, using its drill with deadly force. In an emergency, it can self-destruct to keep its internal data confidential.
When its synthetic skin is off, it is in combat mode, ready to use its full strength and weaponry.

"GOSH. DAMN."

The community refers to him under a few different nicknames, they are: "Razuma" and "Robo".
This resource refers to him as Razuma, although others may vary.

Gameplay

General

Recommended Types: Stamina/Super/Speed

Razuma plays as a sort of "reversal-powerhouse", having little-to-no-range due to his incredibly slow speed, forcing him to rely on parries or EX moves to cover distance.
But what he lacks in speed, he makes up for in moves, he has some of the safest and strongest moves in the game, his full kit is full of ridiculous buttons and he relies on leveraging these huge pokes to get things done.
Not only that, but thanks to his odd U1 and his ability to crouch-slide, he gains extreme TOD potential and has complete control over opponent's boko-bars. You never want to be caught blocking against Razuma.

Just in general, you're playing an uphill battle with extreme reward, one slip-up on the side of the opponent can be certain death.
Often times, Razuma just can't get in due to his speed, forcing him to drop meter or make trades to get things done, some MUs are just complete hell for the poor gator.
Keep in mind, one of the hardest characters, Razuma has to work twice as hard for these things.


Tech

Crouch-Slide
UFDK2 Razuma CrouchSlide.png
As the name implies, you crouch and slide across the ground.
It's performed by holding 3 or down-right, once the combo-counter hits 6-hits, you'll stop moving forward.
It's a pretty unique movement option, allowing Razuma to approach despite his huge hurtbox at times, but mainly to extend his 3A-jab combos.

His 3A-jab combos are the corner-stone of why this movement is so important, every jab can extend for mulitple hits and a potential follow-up, along with it being one of his safest pokes.
It builds tons of meter, does lots of damage, on block it has no drawback, meaning you can infinitely jab an opponent in the corner until their boko-bar breaks or they red-parry.
A great way to mix that up, is to approach with U1 already primed, then activate U1 upon hitting the half-way point on a boko-bar break. Forcing the opponent to try a risky option or risk a full boko-break combo.

U2 Carry
UFDK2 Razuma U2.png
Yep. Just as the name implies, you can carry players off knockdowns using U2 due to it's multi-hit nature.
It's extremely good at carrying fullscreen, although you won't get much damage.
It's important to know and take advantage of this carry to even up the disadvantage between U1 and U2.

Carries:

  • Air Hit -> U2
  • 2X -> 5A > U2
  • 5EX -> U2
  • J.EX -> U2

Movelist

Notation notes:

If you see something like, 5(5)5(5) for Active, that means that all #s outside of parenthesis are active frames and anything in parenthesis are inactive frames in-between each hitbox.
Also taunt recovery refers to the length of the taunt, if you see a # for startup frames, that will be how long until the taunt's effect activates.
However, if the taunt has a hitbox (i.e. Spike), it will be formatted in the same way that a normal move would be.
(Damage buff taunts will not do this, since there is no way to accurately measure when the buff kicks in.)

Most characters have their best jabs as 5A, ZackyWild and Well-Done have amazing 5A jabs, Razuma just doesn't.
It's not like it's unsafe or bad, it's just out-done by 2A. You won't be using this very often if at all, unless you're hitting the U1 Flash Bonus.

This move seems simple on the surface, but it's pairing with crouch-sliding makes it an active powerhouse, it handles all of your troubles.
Meter? Damage? Juggles? Carries? You name it, it can do it. It hits fairly low and with proper spacing you can safely poke without putting your hurtbox into the fray.
Bread n' butter basically, just don't spam it, ok?

The biggest j.A hitbox in the game (maybe?), extremely safe and fast to use. Pokes for free, as long as you don't get hit on the leg hurtbox.
While most of the time j.B is better, j.A is just as good as it doesn't cancel your momentum. Get used to alternating between the two for poking in and getting things done.

I take back what I said.
Extremely bad move, can't cover space and can't really punish due to the arm starting high up and lowering down.
It's far too slow to apply in any context outside of some combos or pick-ups, usually anti-air pickups.
Never use it in neutral, or in combos if you can get around it (none of the optimal combos listed below have it), but in some rare cases it can anti-air okay enough.
(Assuming you don't have meter for whatever reason.)

The longest 2B hitbox in the game (maybe?), fast and safe to use. Pokes for free, am I repeating myself? Oh, right, it's got a really really messed up disjoint on it.
As we've seen with j.A, Razuma has huge legs and they're amazing pokes, this one doubling up as a combo-tool instead of just a big poke.

You use j.A to get in, you use j.B when you're in. It's got a very safe and disjointed hitbox, along with it ending as soon as you touch the ground, it's a great poke.
If you hit it however, you can snap right into slide-jabs, making for a nasty fuzzy-guard setup or potentially an infinite blockstring.

An amazing whiff-punish and oki-tool. Along with being a great combo-tool as well. It has a lot of hits, so it's great for meter-gain and boko-bar damage.
On block it's extremely scary, leads straight into slide-jabs with no gap so blocking this in the corner almost guarantees a boko-break.

Has huge start-up, it hardly matters since you're moving the whole time, it's suprisingly evasive and can hop over most slides or projectiles.
It's also your main combo-starter. You'll be relying on this to start everything, often trying to hit it from okizeme, it's incredibly prone to being DP'd so don't spam it.
Through and through 2X is the stable JUMPANG we all know and love--- it's also safe on block and to some extent parry.

Your main reversal, covers every single angle around Razuma. It's essentially a good version of 5B, but hitting all of the hits is just as finneky.
But due to it's relative speed, odd hitboxes, and great invulnerability, this is your go-to reversal.
It's not half-bad either, in neutral you can hit 5EX(2-hit) for a free launcher.

Very good anti-air reversal, the hitbox comes out at around the hp-display and you lose your invulnerability from there.
Mainly used to punish characters like Kinoko or ZackyWild that sit above you on wake-up, great for all anti-air situations.
Although, don't throw this out in neutral unless you're trying to escape opponent's moves, you'll be very easily punished by a player who knows what to do against it.

Broken move, for realsies. Requires you to hit tiger-knee combos to make it shine, but once you do it rips through characters like a hot knife through butter.
It blocks all projectiles in it's path too, so you should throw this move out in neutral and approach with it.

Deals huge damage and is super useful in any combo as it can be cancelled into once primed after ANY move (except Grab).
It's very useful to great effect on the defensive or the offensive, perfectly playing into any type or playstyle you'd like.
Can be applied as a pseudo-guard cancel, works as anti-air, reversal, and combo-ender.
Also, after popping U1 you return to neutral, you actually float in the air for a bit while the animation is ending too. Useful for escaping projectiles or punishing DPs.

Applies as a very good carry, but on block it's very punishable.
You can use it to avoid projectiles and force an approach, but overall it's far out-shadowed by Ultra 1 in terms of overall use.
Also, there's actually no recovery if it whiffs entirely, the active frames also never "flicker" if it whiffs. Making it even better for carries.

Can't be cancelled by U1 and the KC follow-ups are very underwhelming.
For whatever reason though, it combos if you're all the way in corner, as the opponent doesn't take any knockback.
Still, very practical but the best you can get off of it is a U1 (extremely minus) or a bunch of slide jabs.

Also Grab>3A in the corner is a natural FB LMAO

Practically the same as InAzuma's taunt, just slower, so don't use it.
Maybe as an off-play or if you're rolling you can taunt with it, but in general it's a mediocre taunt.
Don't let that stop you though, extra damage is extra damage and all taunts dmg bonuses / KC bonuses apply as flat damage with no scaling.

Combos

Notation Help
Disclaimer:

Combos are written by various writers, so notation may differ slightly from this notation.
For more information, see Controls.
Also, character-specific notation, such as Rogue's "PCancel" will be on the character's page.

FB Refers to the act of gaining a "Flash Bonus", which grants you extra meter, on the hit of a move.
KC Refers to pressing B+Y on the same frame, or the macro-button for B+Y. This is known as a Kyanta-Cancel, this game's Roman-Cancel.
DC Refers to cancelling a move by activating demon-mode, this works the same way a KC does but since it's activated differently it's noted separately.
YFD Combo Refers to looping a single EX move over and over in demon-mode until you run out of demon, this references a community member known by "YFDHippo" who popularized demon-mode combos.

(For example: 5Ax2>2B>DC>5EX YFD Combo.)

XEX Refers to pressing X+Y on the same frame, or the macro-button for X+Y.

This is known as an EX move, for example: j.EX>5EX>2EX.

{X/Y/Z} Move X or Y or Z can be used.
#X Indicates that any of A, B and C may be used with #. Example: 3A (Down-right, Light.)

If you have trouble with this notation, you may want to google for "Numpad Notation" elsewhere.

[X]xN or XxN-N Loop the inputs in the square brackets or parenthesis as many times as N, sometimes doesn't include brackets or parenthesis but still means the same thing.

Also occasionally includes a dash to indicate that a varying amount of hits can be performed.

j.X Button X is input while you are in the air jump.
X(whiff) Indicates that X is intended to whiff.
(Delay) or (Wait) Indicates a short delay on the hit.
(X) X move is omittable from the combo.
tk.X Indicates the motion "X" is input immediately after leaving the ground. Stands for tiger knee.


Razuma's Ultra-1 has special notation, starting it is referred to as "U1 Prime", while using it after it's activated is referred to as "U1 Activate".
Simply putting "U1", by itself means to activate and prime it as one full use. You will usually see that the most, but PLEASE make sure to properly notate it.

3AxN (Until Boko-Break)

  • 3A lab loops is one of the only true blockstrings in the game that corner carries, forces opponents to escape with a red-parry or force an EX. Use the first version if you want to guarantee a boko-break.
