Introduction

Bishamon (ビシャモン), the Spirit Samurai.

WIP

Primary objective: Pressure and lockdown, unblockable loop.


His Strengths His Weaknesses
  • He has unblockable loops with his ES projectile
  • He has a normal for every situation
  • His pressure is really hard to deal with
  • His Iai Giri is a tool that hits multiple times, and is functionally similar to an instant Sonic Boom (all while not being a projectile)
  • He has good dash speed
  • He has very high combo damage
  • He has an unblockable guard cancel
  • He has above average health
  • He has a Dark Force that gives him super armor (Which can be used to subvert some dumb situations in this game, i.e. Aulbath Bubble)
  • Precision is a requirement to play this character, this is non-negotiable.
  • His good stuff is among the hardest to execute in the game
  • His DP cannot be executed normally, must be done in certain situations.
  • He has a really tall standing and crouching hitbox, making him susceptible to being bullied.
  • He needs meter to do a lot of his strong things
  • He tends to have issues against characters that jump/IAD a lot.

Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? Yes/Rapid Mid 5 ? ? +6 +5 H:+9 B:+8 ?

Simple punch, useful all around.

5MP

Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? No Mid 10 ? ? +2 +1 N/A ?

Best used during a forward dash. The combination of the forward movement provided by the dash and the swinging motion of the normal will catch careless jump up or jump back attempts. Also, it offers frame advantage regardless of hit or block. Becomes 3-hits when used during a dash. A great way to control space, advance forwards, and establish offense.

5HP

Bisha sHP03.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? No Mid 8 ? ? -7 -8 N/A ?

A three-part, one hit normal. Despite its appearance, it is difficult to anti air jump-ins with this move due to its hittable boxes. However, the gigantic upwards swinging motion can be utilized when executed during a forward dash. This is an excellent way to tag jump out attempts (especially when the opponent is backed into the corner) while covering forward movement.

5LK

Bisha sLK.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? Yes Mid 5 ? ? +7 +6 N/A ?

A great normal for a dash in. Has lots of frame advantage when it connects, so you can either combo it into light attacks or attempt a tick throw.

5MK

Bisha sMK.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? NO Mid 6 ? ? +6 +5 N/A ?

Has some frame advantage when it connects. Not especially useful normal.

5HK

Bisha sHK.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? NO Mid 7 ? ? +6 +5 N/A ?

An important normal. Comes out fast, recovers quickly and has frame advantage when it connects. Close HK will space you at the correct distance for an unblockable ES fireball against most characters. Builds good amount of meter, mixing this with the charged slash (Iai Giri) will fill a bar in no time.

Crouching

2LP

Bisha cLP.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? Yes/Rapid Mid 5 ? ? +8 +7 H:+11 B:+10 ?

Has a long reach for a crouching jab. Its reach and speed makes it excellent for poking during both offense and defense. A useful pressure/combo starter due to the extra frame advantage provided by the rapidfire/renda bonus.

2MP

Bisha cMP.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? Yes Mid 6 ? ? +4 +3 N/A ?

Fast, cancelable normal with good range. Great for comboing into ES fireball.

2HP

Bisha cHP.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? No Mid 9 ? ? -4 -5 N/A ?

Slower than most of Bishamon's pokes but provides a lot of reach. Great for spacing and poking from a far distance. Canceling this with 5HK regardless of hit or block will offer quicker recovery plus a bit of meter building.

2LK

Bisha cLK.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? ? Low Only 5 ? ? +8 +7 N/A ?

A quick crouching slash. The range is limited but hits low and offers a lot of frame advantage. Another important pressure/combo starter for Bishamon.

2MK

Bisha cMK01.png
Bisha cMK02.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? No Low Only 6 ? ? +6 +5 N/A ?

2 hit low attack. 1st hit is cancelable. Decent for comboing into ES fireball although 2MP has more range.

2HK

Bisha cHK01.png
Bisha cHK02.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? No Low Only 11 ? ? KND +5 N/A ?

Knockdown move. Quite slow, range is not great either. Strangely enough, the second slash does less damage.

Jumping

j.LP

Bisha jLP01.png
Bisha jLP02.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? No High 6 (from Neutral Jump)
7 From Fwd/Back Jump
? ? Variable Variable N/A ?

Air horzontal slash. Will swing multiple times before landing if used during a neutral jump. Otherwise, Bishamon will only swing once.

j.MP

Bisha jMP02.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? No High 6 ? ? Variable Variable N/A ?

An aerial 2 hit horizontal slash. Backdashing into this move could be good for stopping a dash in. Otherwise, it's a fairly good air to air move.

j.HP

Bisha jHP01.png
Bisha jHP02.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? No High 7 (from Neutral Jump)
11 (Fwd/back Jump)
? ? Variable Variable N/A ?

Similar to his j.MP. Using this during a neutral jump will cause Bishamon to slash twice.

j.LK

Bisha jLK.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? No High 5 ? ? Variable Variable N/A ?

Short range downward attack. An early j.LK can hit a standing opponent, and chaining it into his j.MK and j.HK can make quite a deadly jumping chain.

j.MK

Bisha jMK.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? No High 6 ? ? Variable Variable N/A ?

Good jump in move. Chain into j.HP or j.HK for additional damage.

j.HK

Bisha jHK.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? No High 8 ? ? Variable Variable N/A ?

Quite similar to his j.MK. Has a little more range, so you can backdash and j.HK for an instant overhead.

Command Normal Moves

6LP

Bisha 6LP.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? No Mid 6 ? ? -2 -2 N/A ?

Has more range than typical LP but recovers waaaay slower. Not useful by itself.

6MP

Bisha 6MP.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? No Mid 7 ? ? 0 -1 N/A ?

Tap slowly to make Bishamon swing his sword from side to side at neck level. Not really useful normal on its own because it's laggy. But if you start a chain with 6LP then chain into this (example : 6LP 6MP or 6LP 6LK 6MP) it loses its ability to swing sideways AND recovers faster at the same time. This put you on a LOT of frame advantage, which you can use to either extend combos (example : 6LP - 6MP >> 2MP xx ES fireball) or for more dash in pressures.

6HP

Bisha 6HP.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? No Mid 8 ? ? -3 -4 N/A ?

Can be inputted twice for an additional slash. The first slash can be used as an anti-air if spaced properly.

6LK

Bisha 6LK.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)

Pursuit Attack

Pursuit: This is one of Bishamon's more dangerous move. It recovers very quickly when it misses and puts you right next to the opponent's other side. From here you can either throw them or c.LK into combo.

Special Moves

Karame Dama - 41236P (Air OK) then either 236P or 4P->623P :

? ? No All
Unblockable (ES Only, Specific Range)
? Variable Variable STUN (Grounded hit)
KND (Air Only)
Variable N/A ?
His fireball special. Recovery time starts when the fireball connect, so at close range this is a great tool for pressure. Use the 236P follow up for untechable knockdown and pursuit setup, or the 4P follow up to remove the chance the opponent might mash out of the stun. Without meter the only useful version for combos is HP, but even so it will fail to connect from time to time. Use ES version for more consistency.
  • (L Version)

Slowest version, not really useful.

  • (M Version)

Average speed. Again, not really useful.

  • (H Version)

Most used of the non-meter versions. Can combo from cancelable normals but only up close.

  • (ES Version)

Has some unblockable frames. This only happens if the opponent isn't already in blockstun so canceling a normal into ES fireball will remove the unblockable. To get an idea of the unblockable distance try to do a HK right next to Sasquatch then do an ES fireball. Some other strings to space yourself for the unblockable (all are done at point blank) :

2LP - 2LK >> 2LK

2LP - 2MP

6LP - 6LK - 6MP

...

There are a lot more setups : resets (MP or HP) , whiffed pursuit on an opponent rolling away ... but you have to be precise with the distance. Against some characters (like Lilith) this is much more difficult to do. After an unblockable fireball quickly followup with 236P (untechable) , then dash back to the unblockable distance again and do a meaty ES fireball. This can be looped over and over until you run out of meter. About 5 stocks will guarantee a kill from full health.

Tsuji Hayate - 236P (after hitting with Karame Dama) :

Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? No All ? Variable Variable HARD KND
(Cannot Roll)
Variable N/A ?
Useable only if Karame Dama hits. Not ground techable. Useful for resetting the unblockable ES Karame Dama loop in corner against some characters. This can however, be blocked in the unusual circumstance that the opponent got out of the Karame Dama stun, or if Bishamon is too slow with getting the followup out. Usually though, this is not blocked.

Iai Giri (high) - [4]6P:

Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? No All ? ? Variable Variable Variable N/A ?
Multiple hit slash special. P version whiffs against crouchers. K version is a low attack and whiffs against jumpers. Great range, very fast and builds loads of meter. Overall, great special to throw out once in awhile. Can be used in combos (especially ES version) but must be done at close range or it will whiff a lot of hits. Can also be comboed off of if close enough.
  • (Level 1)

Charge for 45 frames.

  • (Level 2)

Charge for 52 frames.

  • (Level 3)

Charge for 82 frames.

  • (ES Version)

Charge for 45 frames.

Kienzan - 623P (GC) (only usable when landing from a jump, as a guard cancel or in reversal situations):

? ? No All -

? ? Variable KND -
HARD KND (ES only - Cannot roll)
Variable N/A ?
Fast dragon punch type move. Unless it is used as a guard cancel it provides no invincibility.

The non-guard cancel version can only be performed briefly after specific situations, one being right after landing from a jump, and the other when coming out of recovery (such as getting up from being knocked down, or coming out of hit or block stun). After either of those scenarios Bishamon is allowed for 10 frames to perform a Kienzan.

  • (L Version)
  • (M Version)
  • (H Version)
  • (ES Version) Adds more hits and damage, faster startup, still no invulnerability. Successful hit will automatically slice the opponent in half when they land on the ground, which also prevents pursuits. Pretty good use of meter.
  • (GC Version) Gains some invulnerability on startup. One of the best GC's in the game due to it's speed and range. Extremely fast startup. Use often. The initial attack frames of the ES Guard Cancel is unblockable.

EX Moves

Togakubi Sarashi - 22PP:

Bisha 22pp.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)
? ? No Pursuit Only ? Variable Variable ? N/A N/A ?

Pursuit type EX. Amazing move, it adds HUGE damage to your combos (and even throws !) as long as you have meter. Know which knockdowns you can follow up with this move though, if it whiffs then it's a waste of knockdown and meter.

Enma Seki - 41236KK:

Bisha 426kkk.png
Red Dmg. White Dmg. Cancelable Guard Direction Startup Active Recovery Hit Adv. Guard Adv. Renda Bonus Meter (Whiff/Block/Hit)

Must be blocked low. Kinda decent move to use once in awhile. Save meter for his other moves.

Strategies

Combos

Distinguishing between a chain and a link as well as between regular special and ES special moves is very important in Bishamon combo notation so make sure you read carefully!

Terminology

- = next move is a chain
>> = next move is a link
xx = next move is a special or EX cancel
5Lx = move can either be a punch or a kick

Hit Confirms

  • 2LK >> 2LK >> 2LK >> 2MP xx 4~6HK (2 hit)
23 red/42 white
There isn't enough time to charge for 3 hits of the Iai Giri if you start charging from the first hit of this combo.
  • 2LK >> 2LK >> 2MP xx 4~6KK
30 red/50 white
From point blank, it's optimal to only do one or two LK before the MP, anymore than that and you're pushed back too far and all the hits of ES Iai Giri will not connect, causing the combo to do less damage. If you start charging from the first LK, you'll barely hit the required charge time for Iai Giri.
  • 2LK >> 2LK >> 2MP xx 41236PP xx 236P >> 22PP
?? red/?? white
  • 6LP > 6MP >> 2MP xx 41236PP xx 236P >> 22PP
?? red/?? white
When chaining 6LP into 6MP due to a bug Bishamon has no recovery from the 6MP, so you can easily link into 2MP.

Jump in Combos

  • j.MK - j.HK >> 2LP - 2LK >> 2LP >> 2MP xx 4~6HK (3 hits)
37 red/67 white
The extra light attacks at the start are to give Iai Giri more time to charge all 3 hits.
  • j.LK - j.MK - j.HK >> 2LK - 2MP - 2MK - 2HK >> 22PP
44 red/74 white
2HK can be a bit distance specific so this isn't optimal for consistency or damage.
  • j.MK - j.HK >> 2MP xx 4123HP xx 236HP >> 22PP
50 red/80 white
4123.HP combos only on "fat" characters and when extremely close.
  • j.MK - j.HK >> 2MP xx 4123PP xx 236HP >> 22PP
?? red/?? white
4123PP, the ES version, combos from much further away, but not from a max range 2MP

Dash Link Combos

All dash links can be started with either 5LP or 5LK, but 5LK gives +1 more frame advantage.

  • dash 5Lx >> 2LP - 2LK >> 2.MP xx 4~6HK (shorter charge)
21 red/39 white
  • dash 5Lx >> 2LP - 2LK - 2LP >> 2MP xx 4~6HK (longer charge)
24 red/46 white
The Slashes special has longer to charge in this combo than the one above so it will hit more times.
  • dash 5Lx >> 2LP - 2LK >> 2LP >> 2MP xx 4~6KK (misses a lot of hits)
26 red/46 white
Because there are too many light attacks at the start the ES Slashes misses a lot of hits.
  • dash 5Lx >> 2LP - 2LK >> 2MP XX 4~6KK
30 red/51 white
This gets more hits and does more damage than the above combo due to not placing as many attacks before the ES Slashes.
  • dash 5Lx >> 2LP - 2LK >> 2LP >> 2MP xx 41236PP xx 236HP >> 22PP
37 red/62 white
  • dash 5Lx >> 2LP - 2LK >> 2MP xx 41236PP xx 236HP >> 22PP
39 red/64 white
Does a bit more damage than the above combo due to less damage scaling.

  • Tsuji-Hayate (The Kara Dama Follow-up) cannot be done as a reversal.
  • Execute Togakubi Sarashi as 22+PPP, delay, 8+P such that if the input is improper a cr.lp will whiff & Bishamon can still input a normal pursuit afterwards.
  • Tsuji-Hayate's speed varies depending on if the opponent was standing or crouching in the hit-reel. However, It's irrelevant as the second attack knocks down.
  • Getting hit while doing possession from Karame Dama instantly stop the possession-state. Extended combos are not allowed in this fashion.
  • Bishamon avoids Cheap-Damage while in Dark Force
