Real Urien Unblockables/combos. (Strategies too???)
HOW THE UNBLOCKABLE WORKS:
The Aegis breaks their guard BY ITSELF. The reason for this is because when the back of the Aegis is at their back, the first hit is blocked in a normal fashion. All the following Aegis hits will be needed to be blocked IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. Any normal attack from Urien will be needed to be blocked IN THE CORRECT DIRECTION, and because you cannot block both ways (pretty much NEAR impossible), you get THE UNBLOCKABLE.
These combos have ALL been tested on the ps2 and the arcade, and are practical to use in real matches. I’m basically posting the best POSSIBLE (key word) combos/unblockables to use in a certain situation with Urien. Note: these are all on Ken unless noted otherwise.
What to do off:
Cr. Fierce, midscreen
If you don’t have meter, the best thing to do is a lk or mk tackle. It does the most damage and pushes them to corner, which is where Urien should usually want them to be. Another thing to do is mp headbutt. This does less damage, and knocks them right down however. This should only be used if you want to dash over them while they’re quick-standing (character specific, might not work on some) and set up another cr. fierce or whatever.
If you have an aegis stocked, the ideal setup is: Cr. Fierce, lk/mk tackle cancelled to fp aegis, rh tackle to hit WITH the aegis, immediately dash partition mp headbutt, dash twice towards the aegis, and f+mk to break guard. The partition headbutt might seem hard to some, because they immediately assume that it’s too hard when they see the word partition. The partition headbutt in the standard midscreen unblockable takes no timing whatsoever. After you cancel lk/mk tackle to fp aegis, you immediately hold D/B (NOT back), do the rh tackle, immediately go back to d/b or d (at this time, it doesn’t matter), dash, immediately charge a little more IN the dash, press UP and mp. Everything’s done with no pauses in them, like another common (and misunderstood) midscreen unblockable, which brings me to my next point.
MOST people (most meaning too many) think they can replace the dash partition headbutt with a simple rh knee drop. This is the most commonly misunderstood unblockable setup of all time. The rh knee drop setup ONLY (and I mean ONLY) works on Chun-Li, Makoto, and shotos who aren’t ken (kinda harder IMO because you have to dash with little to no gaps) because they get up slow enough.
Alex, Dudley, Remy, Necro, and some others’ Midscreen Unblockable:
You can do cr. fierce, lk/mk tackle cancelled to fp aegis, DASH TACKLE UNDER (not HIT), dash towards aegis twice, F+MK to break guard. Dudley and Necro (and probably some others I’m forgetting) must have slim/no gaps between dashes. Everyone else, you can wait for them to get up to space yourself so that if they parry low, the F+MK won’t knock them OUT of the Aegis. My personal trick to the dash tackle partition: I trained myself to get my dash special after Aegis down to just about 99%, because I first started partitioning by sound. When I heard “gis” in the “aegis reflector!”, I began to charge. It worked for me. Now, I don’t use it anymore because I’m used to the timing, which would be preferable to get to either with my “gis” method or whatever you want.
Cr. Fierce near the corner (with the corner not being visible, but you know you’re close)
When you don’t have meter, it’s best to just try for a f+mp after your lk/mk tackle off cr. fierce. It resets and adds a little damage and meter. Better than nothing.
You can also do an ex tackle after the lk/mk tackle if you have the meter for an ex instead. The ex tackle pushes them to the corner and sets up for another possible juggle with a rh tackle (which you can cancel to jab aegis to set up corner unblockable. Try to find RX’s “Wanted” online vids. RX shows how everyone’s corner unblockable works).
When you do have meter for an aegis, what you do is cr. fierce, lk/mk tackle cancelled to JAB aegis (this aegis is only to cancel the recover of the lk/mk tackle, and is NOT meant to hit), rh tackle (you should be at the corner by now), buffer a mk tackle, to another mk tackle. This builds back a lot of your meter with just hitting tackles after the aegis, and you can cancel to another jab aegis after the last mk tackle for a corner unblockable.
Cr. Fierce in the corner
If you don’t have meter, the ideal combo to do is a mk tackle, buffered to another mk tackle, buffered to an mp headbutt. This combo is actually a little easier than it sounds. When you buffer the tackles, make sure to buffer them D/B to charge for the headbutt as well. The real hard part is getting that second mk tackle in. It’s usually rushed and doesn’t come out. You just need to slow down, and make sure you hit that first mk tackle as early as possible.
When you do have meter, what you can do is a mk tackle, buffered to another mk tackle, cancelled to jab aegis for that corner unblockable. This is sometimes a little hard, so it’s prefered if you do another cr. fierce after the initial cr. fierce, to mk tackle cancelled to jab aegis for that corner unblockable instead.
There are other character specifics, which I might post later.
