[ライデン]

Introduction

Heavyweight virtuaroid with top class offensive and defensive capabilities. All of the weapons are extremely powerful, especially the lasers fired from the shoulder units, which are extremely destructive.
By anticipating the path of your opponent and firing a laser accordingly you can maintain an advantage over even the fastest machines.

Character Traits

See Notation / Character Descriptions

Strengths Weaknesses
  • High damage per hit. Powerful aimed attacks with CW laser.
  • Excellent at punishing predictable movement and attacks.
  • Heavy control of the game with aimed lasers (CW) and laser net (LTCW).
  • RW bazooka is high performance and covers basic pressure and dash attack actions.
  • Stun properties on laser net allow practical instant kills on some VRs.
  • Surprisingly competent at close range as laser and other options are quick enough to act as a melee deterrent.
  • ! 1-frame instant laser techniques and changing laser to V/X-pattern increase performance further.
  • ! Advanced movement techniques increase ground mobility further.
  • Low mobility apart from fairly fast ground dash. Larger hitbox than normal.
  • Low mobility makes survival more difficult. Forced to use attacks effectively and quickly to defend your area. Timeout is less likely of an option.
  • ? Somewhat difficult to handle. Heavy use of rotation is required to play this VR to its strengths.

Strategy

Matchup strategy

Raiden / Matchups

Advanced Techniques

LW into TRW cancel route

Fire stationary LW then input RTRW. RTRW will come out with the last shots firing earlier than normal. The attack is also dash and walk cancellable much faster than normal.
The same can be done with LW into LTRW.

Crouch attacks into cLTRW cancel route

cLW and cRW can be cancelled into cLTRW. cLTRW can be cancelled into dash or jump at any point.
As a result using cLTRW as a cancel route allows you to move into other actions like dashing or other attacks immediately.

You can even perform cLW -> cRW -> cLTRW for a combined barrage.

BIOS dash

Cancel landing or natural dash recovery with CW or RW startup and dash again to cancel the recovery and keep moving.

High speed movement - 3-2 button lock variant

See Advanced Techniques / Rowing for more info
High speed walk in a backwards direction.
Input: Move in direction 3 (or 1) then direction 2 and immediately hold crouch.
Raiden will walk backwards at high speed. Very effective for gaining distance on your opponent while keeping current facing.

Instant Laser

Start firing RW in a neutral state and input CW or RTCW as the bazooka is about to fire.
CW laser will come out instantly skipping startup frames. Very tight timing.

V-Laser

Perform a ground dash attack (usually dashing cRW), then input CW at a specific point of the recovery as it’s about to end.
CW lasers will come out instantly in a V-pattern with the other laser shooting off to the side. Very tight timing.
