Kakōton

Profile

Name: 夏侯惇 元譲 (Kakōton Genjō)
Real Name: Shunran
Historical Counterpart: Xiahou Dun - Yuanrang
Voice Actress: Harumi Asai

Twin sister of Kakōen, this mighty warrior of Gi wields a giant sword known as the Hungry Wolf of the Seven Stars. Wholly dedicated in both body and soul to Sōsō's grand cause, she will not be satisfied until all who oppose Sōsō have been destroyed. Emotional and passionate, she can be somewhat simplistic and naive.

Gameplan

Kakouton has some of the best close range pressure in the game. Her long reaching 5A can be confirmed into 623A or 236A+B, and also combos into 236A on CH. Her 236 series pushes opponents outside of poke range, giving her some of the safest frame trap options in the cast, while also pushing opponents to the corner. Work your way up close, then use a mixture of 5A into throw, 5AA, or 236A to open your opponent up.

Recommended Strategists

  • Fire - Good neutral-oriented assist for dealing with longer ranged characters, combos into 5C for high reward.
  • Pit - Strong aggressive assist to strengthen midrange/close range options. Good against characters like Ryofu's 2b on block > 2b or rekka(1) on block > 2b. Since there's no superflash on pit startup, after blocking ryofu 2b, pit deals with the followup 2b well.
  • Lightning / Chain - Having a projectile-based assist is useful against zoners like Sonshoko or Chouun's dashing 5A.

  • Fully invul on frames 1-46.

Kakouton dashes towards the opponent; on contact she tosses her sword in the air whilst she pummels the opponent with her fists, catches her sword and finishes you off with a slash. (Trivia; she beats up most of the characters into a "Stun" stance before slashing them. Her own stun stance plays it off like nothing happened to her.)
