How is everyone cancelling overhead into raging demon?
What are the exact inputs necessary to perform a kara demon (cancelling demon from a normal attack)?
I’m trying to do it like SF4 where I could double tap F+LP+MP twice into LK+HP, but it doesn’t seem to be working.
For some reason it seems like I have to end with the stick in the up+forward direction and** then it seems to work**.
Also I’ve noticed you do the old SF4 raging demon anti-air by cancelling cr.MK (to low profile a jump-in attack) into Raging Demon.
EDIT: Thanks Kuwabara. It looks like I was letting my stick come to neutral without realizing it.
If anyone else learns of any shortcuts for buffering demon please share them here
Ok this is more of a troubleshooting question since I didn’t want to make an unnecessary thread.
Does a prior hit cause the demon to whiff?
I’ve missed a demon so many times this way where they are basically crouch blocking and I either hit them with a jab right before the demon or something else and the Demon completely whiffs. It’s not the range because it also happens when I try within throw range. Please help.
Yeah having some trouble adjusting to demon in this game too, I try to use V trigger as a reaction to a jump in and then demon as a deep anti air and a lot of times the opponent will end up behind me… but hey its only day 3 right
Also you can punish most vreversal on a blocked cr.hp (I need to try other buttons) by doing vtrigger activation > raging demon. Doable on reaction for most.
Like the Ken one I can’t do it so far because it’s so fast but for Laura for example I set up random block and either jab or vreversal after a block and I can confirm on hit and vtrigger > demon if I see the vreversal on block.
It basically lets you do an instant raging demon by plinking PPP with MK and (which has two LP nested within the double PPP input) into F+LK+HP.
Basically gives Akuma the best anti-air in the game (even shutting down Nash’s moonsaults) as long as they decide to press a button in the air.
I’ve also found that buffering a raging demon can blow up people using the jump-back / throw tech option select. I’ll post a video soon demonstrating this in action, and then perhaps at a later date I can put up a tutorial in case anyone is interested.
I normally do F+MPLP xx LP xx F+HP+LK (Cancel the throw so I can do it up close) Is this a better method than that? I have trouble the second forward sometime so it would be nice to find a better method
The one you’re doing is the shortcut for the empty cancel on the overhead right?
That is not the same use as the one in the video. The one on the video is about the vskill canceling into demon. You cannot do the overhead one with this.
I think your command is the best one for kara canceling the overhead.
I do it like that : F+mplp > back + mplp (could just do lp as well but I find it easier) > f > plink lk+hp
I find that going back for the second part makes it easier for some reason but it’s not needed.
You might have trouble because you don’t want your second forward to be at the same time as your lk input, you want it before. In USFIV you could do it at the same time but here you can’t for some reason.
