Data Help
Disclaimer: This is meant to teach basic terminology used when describing moves.
HitBox: A predefined area (usually a group of rectangles or circles) that tell the game how any given attack can come in contact with a character. Hitboxes are invisible to the player when normally playing.
HurtBox: A predefined area (usually a group of rectangles or circles) that tell the game how your character is allowed to get hit by any incoming attack. Specifically, you'll get hit by (or block) an attack if that attack's hitbox ever overlaps your hurtbox.
Throw Box/Range: Active throw frames and range. Your opponent will be thrown in this field if not in block or hit stun.
Projectile Box: Hit box on a projectile attack.
Guard/Counter Box: The Guard Box or Counter Box. This appears when blocking or using a counter move.
Push Box: Has no bearing on hurt/hit boxes. Just allows characters to not pass through each other. (Also known as "Collision Box".)
Command the input for the attack.
Start Up The number of frames that initiate at the beginning of an attack after the input. And when the first hitbox is present.

The first active frame is after the last startup frame.

Guard The way this move must be blocked.

High or H or Overhead (especially when from the ground) -- must be blocked standing.
High-Low or HL or Mid -- can be blocked either standing or crouching.
Low or L -- must be blocked crouching.

Damage "basic" damage -- unmodified damage values

"correct" damage -- damage values modified for damage scaling, TOP multiplier, and defense rate

Guard Crush Value Decrease your guard durability gauge/meter by that value/s
+ signifies how many advantage frames the attacker has.
- signifies how many disadvantage frames the attacker has.
KD means the attack will knock the opponent down.
circle means cancelable on both hit/block.
infinity means chain cancelable with the same button (renda cancel).
means cancelable on the first hit/part only.
《 》OR « » OR << >> OR ( ) The numbers in the brackets are the startup frames until the next stage (the gap until the next hit's first active frame).
up triangle means only cancelable on block.
down triangle means only cancelable on hit.
× OR X means not cancelable.


Notes:

  • Guard crush values within ( ) are when the move is used as the next hit of a target combo.
  • From the 2nd hit and after of the target combo, the active frames and recovery frames will be the same as far moves and crouching moves
  • Jump D, Jump A, and Jump B (Jump A and Jump B are usually diagonal jumps only) can beat out upper-body evasive attacks.
  • Special/Super moves with "Guard" data in red text are impossible to just defend at 0-pixel health bar.

A sliding sweep that is excellent at catching landing frames, making this one of Hokutomaru's better anti-airs. Some characters are completely incapable of hitting Hokutomaru during the low profile.
On hit/block, unless hit on the last active frame, 1 active frame of recovery is removed. (e.g., hitting on the first frame has 20F blockstun - (11 remaining active frames + 22F recovery) = -13 adv. Max advantage is -2.

Hokutomaru is the only character who can double jump (without the help of a wall) which opens up many options for him in the air.

  • The double jump must be input near the peak of Hokutomaru's jump, and it cannot be cancelled into from a jumping normal.
  • Hokutomaru cannot Just Defend after double jumping!

The fastest universal overhead in the game. Unfortunately is split up into 2 hits which prevents Hokutomaru from comboing after a counterhit and can leave him punishable if the second hit whiffs. 18F hitstun and 24F blockstun.
If the second hit whiffs it is -8 on hit, -2 on block.

Single shuriken. Unlike all other projectiles, the shurikens can be destroyed by the opponent's melee attacks (without absorbing it, the same attack can still hit Hokutomaru) which makes them not as effective for deterring divekicks or... most things actually. This particular version is unlikely to be used as the air version is faster when TK'd or done from a backdash.

Hit Adv Block Adv Feint Cancel Cancel on Hit Cancel on Block Guard Crush Value
KD -22 X X X 8

Cheesy homing teleport overhead that carries enormous risk in exchange for just decent reward.
Hokutomaru appears at a fixed height every time so if the opponent is in the air you will teleport directly into a jump normal, and the hitbox is a lot smaller than it seems (the opposite can be said about the hurtbox).
When counterhitting a grounded opponent they will get spun instead of knocked down, leaving Hokutomaru only +1.
If the opponent blocks this move, you have thrown away the round, good luck on the next one.
On the bright side, this move is useful in combos, can be used after a double jump or air target combo (very slow triple overhead), and is able to punish predictable fireballs. Still gimmicky though.
7~8F full-body invincibility.

HKD (+38) -60 - - - 2×9

Corner combo ender and Hokutomaru's only invincible reversal. Due to the hitbox being modest, the short length of the invincibility and the damage being spread between many weak hits, when used outside of combos it will often miss many hits and even trade/lose to attacks, limiting its use as a raw reversal or anti-air. It is pretty reliable as a GC, though you may still lose damage.
As it is 1F startup, Hokutomaru can juggle into this super when the opponent is meant to be invincible (air reset). This is difficult to time and does not apply to the P-Power version which is 0F startup.

  • 1~2F full-body invincibility.
