'''22C'''<br>
 +
if wu gets a KD in the corner she can use 22C to be +10 to +5 depending on if they roll or not and will catch all tech rolls. If they take the hit wu can easily convert because of how meaty the special hits. sample idea of this would be 22D > microwalk back 22C
 +
<br>
 +
*If they get hit you can follow up with many different options
 +
:* normal(restand) > 623A
 +
:* 214C
 +
:* WFT
 +
:* issen (issen will also sometimes hit a mid screen opponent as well but you need to run)
 +
 +
===623S===
 +
* '''On hit'''
 +
:* SSM
 +
:* normal(restand) > 623A or B
 +
:* WFT
 +
:* 66C
 +
:* Issen
 +
 +
* '''Close range 623S options on block'''
 +
:* B+C(overhead) is good
 +
:* 6k, if your opponent blocks a 6k you have enough time for a free tick grab (with this setup you need to time the 6k properly because the spikes have thrown invul for a certain period. Practice this in training mode for consistency).
 +
:* 6k if hits you can frame trap into 2a
 +
 +
* '''Far Range 623s'''
 +
:* 66k/f.2c(safer option due to pushback)
 +
:* 661/6643 b+c for an instant running overhead

Wu-Ruxiang
呉瑞香, Wú-Ruìxiāng

Introduction

Ruixiang’s most defining features are without a doubt her ground traps, which make her a character for lab monsters who like to find crazy setups and stylish juggles, although she can also be played as a more traditional projectile zoner.

While her normals are surprisingly stubby and quite laggy, she has arguably the best projectile game out of the entire cast, with high, medium and low fireballs that become active very early in their animation. Her shield counter can also reflect projectiles, in addition to being a strong anti-aggression tool. Ruixiang’s WFT is fast and covers a huge area, making it risky for the opponent to challenge her zoning.

Her defense isn’t spotless though as she somewhat struggles with anti-airs and her damage is way below average without setups. Her slow movement and floaty jump also make it hard for her to position herself properly.

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Very strong projectile game
  • Nasty setups
  • Decent anti-aggression tools
  • Short reach on her normals
  • Low damage on her own
  • Slow movement
  • Okizeme hard to setup
  • poor frame data
  • has no specials when disarmed

Data

  • Damage Taken: 110%
  • Rage Duration: 16 seconds

Gameplan

Similar to the Strategy section of the 5sp wiki pages. List Wu's archetype, strengths, weaknesses, etc. Sample subsections could include Neutral, Okizeme, etc.

Neutral

Okizeme

22C
if wu gets a KD in the corner she can use 22C to be +10 to +5 depending on if they roll or not and will catch all tech rolls. If they take the hit wu can easily convert because of how meaty the special hits. sample idea of this would be 22D > microwalk back 22C

  • If they get hit you can follow up with many different options
  • normal(restand) > 623A
  • 214C
  • WFT
  • issen (issen will also sometimes hit a mid screen opponent as well but you need to run)

623S

  • On hit
  • SSM
  • normal(restand) > 623A or B
  • WFT
  • 66C
  • Issen
  • Close range 623S options on block
  • B+C(overhead) is good
  • 6k, if your opponent blocks a 6k you have enough time for a free tick grab (with this setup you need to time the 6k properly because the spikes have thrown invul for a certain period. Practice this in training mode for consistency).
  • 6k if hits you can frame trap into 2a
  • Far Range 623s
  • 66k/f.2c(safer option due to pushback)
  • 661/6643 b+c for an instant running overhead

100 Mid 10 - - -6 -12 No - Yes No

On the ground this one has only a few pixels more reach than 2A and no cancels, but it could be used to catch badly spaced jump-ins.


2C

White Tiger Fangs

All 20*5 Low 53 - - KD +15 - - - No

Wu's trap. Light sets close, Medium sets mid, Heavy sets far. The most important tool about this character. This can be used to zoning, okizeme, and blockstrings. If it hits allows for massive damage combos with RE> (push into trap)trap hit > issen/lighting blade or trap hit into SSM


Azure Dragon Thunderstrike

Light 100 - 15 - - KD -20 - - - No
Medium 140 - 22 - - KD -26 - - - No
Heavy 180 - 22 - - KD -26 - - - No

this move can be good for certain anti airs if you know they are jumping over you. One of the most practical tools of this is using 22C(heavy) meaty in corner to be either +10 or +5 on block if perfectly spaced and it converts easily on hit.
