Oni - Tips, Tricks, and Techniques

Due to popular demand, here is a showcase of Oni. In the future this page will include Combo video's, high level matches, and general tips and tricks. for a similar page for Evil Ryu see here

this blog was intended as a place to keep quality footage of Oni in one easy place. It's convenient that I don't need to navigate multiple youtube pages, stream links, or fighting game forums. It is not intended as a guide, it's more of a showcase, or reference. I realized other people might benefit and/or be interested in seeing these videos, as finding quality combo videos and matches is hard unless you visit fighting game sites with any sort of regularity, so I also posted this blog here on the SF forums so any Giant Bombers also interested in Oni can benefit from the videos.

Information From AE Dev Blog



Here is some post release info on Oni. It gives some developer thoughts about Oni as well as taking a look at a few of his hitboxs, its short so I would recommend giving it a look. 

Basic Tactics




   
  This video shows off some basic info from Oni. Notable normals, special moves, and differences from akuma. one particularly interesing fact is Oni's standing heavy punch cancels fireballs.

Yeah, can't wait to jump in and bait a SRK then Demon that shit, it looks like it's got a huge grab hitbox on it so it shouldn't be too picky where it grabs like T.Hawk's bullshit Ultra 2. I wonder if you can cancel the dash into his Air Fireball Ultra. That's would be hot too.

What I want to know about Oni is.. Is he Akuma turned God, or Goutetsu back from the grave to stop Evil Ryu? Oni looks way way more powerful than anything that's come before in the SF fiction, which kinda makes it weird when you see him played and balanced for online play. You expect him to be able to just 1hit K.O anybody yet Sakura's fireball probably does more damage than his after the balancing lol.

In semi-related news Evil Ryu's alt costume is LOL material. What's up with that crazy hair. Does going all evil make your hair grow longer? Is that why all death metal lovers get long hair?

@Scooper:  Evil Ryu's alt is Hobo Ruy. It's not his evilness that made his hair grow, it's months of living in a cardboard box in an alley, going through McDonalds' garbage, that made him that way.

p.s. Oni looks amazing.

The only thing i don't like about Oni and Evil Ryu is that they  fucking glow so much. I find color 11 and 12 on characters to be distracting but this is just going to be crazy.

Posted by TechHits
@Management:  I know what you mean, color 11 should be banned.
Posted by JJOR64

From the video's I've seen of Oni, it looks like he does mad damage with little effort.  Thank god his health is slow and his focus is ass.

Color 12 was banned at EVO last year.
Posted by TechHits
@JJOR64:  oops thats the color I meant 
Posted by Scooper

Yeah. Color 11 is godlike.

@Pessh:  thanks for the tip

hopefully there will be some Oni play in Guard Crush 15 
Posted by demontium

Oni looks so high finesse, can't wait to see what viper type players do with him.


E. Ryu looks super OP and akuma + ryu basically.
Posted by StarvingGamer
@JJOR64: Yeah but e.Ryu's FA is gdlk

Honestly I don't see much going for Oni outside of crazy pokes. Maybe he will be a decent counterpick to Gief or something.
Posted by Ubik

Damn, I got all excited when I saw this thread before I realized it was about Oni the character, not the cheesy old PC game.  



Posted by StarvingGamer
@demontium: Nah, e.Ryu is missing Akuma's biggest weapon, the vortex.
Posted by EvilTwin

Can't wait to see someone land an air demon in a tourney.  Seems like he's going to be a pretty exciting character to watch.
