Garou: Mark of the Wolves/Kim Jae Hoon

From SuperCombo Wiki

Introduction

Kim Jae Hoon is the younger brother of Kim Dong Hwan, both of them together are the sons of Taekwondo Master, Kim Kaphwan. Unlike his older brother, Kim Jae Hoon is much more serious with Taekwondo and believes firmly in his fathers ideals of justice. Jae Hoon uses many of the same techniques his father before him used, such has the Hangetsu Zan and Hou'ou Kyaku, with a bit of an original spin of his own, adding his element of fire to his attacks to amplify the power behind his blows.

Jae Hoon enters the Maximum Mayhem tournament with his older brother Dong Hwan after their father, whom was visiting the newly re-built Second South, was attacked by an very strong oppenent and was injured. Jae Hoon swears to avenge his fathers defeat, and so, dragging Dong Hwan with him, the two compete in the Maximum Mayhem tournament with hope that one of them will be able to face the monster that defeated their father.

Gameplay

Jae is an "honest" type of character. His main gameplan is to pressure the opponent with his great normals and hit confirm into damaging combos. His secondary gameplan is to use his great normal pressure to threaten with basic mix: high/low mix with jump/hop attacks; cross-up; throw; hienzan break; or even his other unsafe and risky moves.

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Great set of normals for poking and pressuring
  • Good meterless damage and highly damaging corner combos
  • Good high/low, left/right, and throw mixups
  • Most special moves are bad or hard to use outside of combos
  • Struggles to build meter
  • Needs to guard cancel with a charge move in order to have a reliable anti-air

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.

You backdash, then lunge forward with an upward, launching kick (a strong normal). You can avoid attacks with the backdash, but the move itself is somewhat slow, stubby and unsafe. So mix this with doing other options after backdash.

  • During a backdash, press B. B can be inputted anytime during the backdash frames (comes out the earliest after invincible frames end).
  • You can kara cancel the startup, (1) when the move starts after the backdash, and (2) after the lunge and before the kick comes out, usually done with Hienzan D break or Ryusei Raku.
  • Rewarding on hit. Whether on hit or on guard, a feint cancel and special cancel can be done.
    • If you don't cancel it, on guard you'll be minus, so be sure to always feint cancel it or cancel it with Hienzan (BR).
    • Launches opponent into the air on hit. On hit, you can combo into Houou kyaku (236(x2)B/D).

A very slow startup overhead attack that might not knockdown at further ranges. Generally unsafe to use.

But because it has an extremely high guard crush value of 25, and its fast recovery makes it -1F if guarded against, it is a useful TOP attack.

For some reason, Jae Hoon's side has an advantage when the move is JDed.

Since it can be canceled into, it is effective to mix using it in a string.

Normal throw. The opponent is hard knockdowned a short distance in front of Jae hoon.

After throwing, you are able to set solid left/right mixups midscreen by either staying in front with your jump-in or with ambiguous cross-up using jump A or jump B (by going slightly further with microwalking or dash jumping).

The ease of hitting varies depending on the character, so practice is required.

After throwing the opponent at the corner, you can also use the reverse guard corner cross-up bug that cross-up's even though it looks like it's from the front.

KD -16 - - - 1×3, 2

After a stance with an upper-body guard point centered (horizontally) in the middle of the character, there is a successive flurry series of kicks.

The startup before the guard point is not that quick, so it will be difficult to use as an interrupt during gaps in the opponent's offense, or other defensive uses.

The upper-body guard point is at 11~12F and absorbs mids and highs.

When the button is held, Jae will hold his stance with his leg fully raised, having the GP persist. But you won't be able to stop the kick. Because of that there is not much of a point in charging completely all the way.

The total startup can be nearly 60F at maximum length:

  • Shakka Shuu [A] -- extended GP at 13~44F (max 32 frames), then goes through remaining 7F of startup.
  • Shakka Shuu [C] -- extended GP at 13~50F (max 38 frames), then goes through remaining 7F of startup.

C Version travels further.

If you want to JD this, there are only 2 hits to JD, but it is -3 afterwards.

Slow, so they don't combo from lights, but are an okay combo finisher.

Unsafe on block.

Main uses:

  • For a stable (reliable) combo when you think you are too far away for Ryuusei Raku (especially 236B) to reach after hitting with 2C.
  • Use when prioritizing corner carry.
    • Offers you corner carry but you get no mixups.
  • GCing fireballs
  • Killing through chip damage.


Ryuusei Raku (236K)

Ryuusei Raku
236 B/D
A move that, after a low-hitting leg sweep forward, leaps up to put out a heel drop.
Best used in combos by special canceling from 2C or the upper-body evasion attack.
Gives you decent oki as well.
However, you can also catch the opponent not blocking low while you use it in a blockstring, or do it alone.
And you can use it as a situational guard cancel.
If you guard the first hit, both versions have the same gap between the end of blockstun and the 2nd hit. But the gap depends on when the 2nd hit reaches you (between 7-10F).

Your worst ground combo ender.

Very inconsistent at range due to the first hit being very vertical and not comboing from range. The second hit may sometimes connect but only if you do a single normal point blank first.

For combos, you should use Ryuusei Raku (236K).

The only other use is as a situational guard cancel -- it is slow, but the lack of lower-body hurtbox means you can avoid follow-up low attacks.

Risky to use alone, and not even an overhead, there is not much utility.

The D version is even slower, so there is even less utility than the B version.

It's an even worse option to use as a guard cancel.

The divekick. A successive series of up to 4 kicks in a row while diving diagonally downwards. Comboable from all air normals. Punishable on hit at best, and can be even worse depending on how it hits. Pretty bad.

Done high enough on a taller character, it might reach 5 kicks.

D version travels further and faster at a slightly wider angle.

Both versions can beat out upper-body evasion attacks.

The main uses are as a counterattack when you special cancel into it from an air normal that was JDed, and as a GC after you JD in mid-air.

Although it is a move that is impossible to JD at 0-pixel health, it has a slow startup and travel time, and a punishable gap of recovery as it whiffs (as well as on hit and block), so it's important to apply it properly.

The button of follow-up must be the same as the one used for the divekick's.

But it is very unsafe.


Hienzan ([2]8K)

Hienzan
Flash Kick
[2]8 B/D
After Hienzan (BR) hits, or after Hienzan trades, it is possible to follow up with Houou Kyaku (236(x2)K).

In the case of hitting at the corner, you can follow up the trade or break move with Houyoku Tenshou Kyaku (236(x2)P). For Hienzan B (BR), you can only connect to Houyoku if the opponent is airborne high enough.

Jae Hoon's main special move that's frequently used as an anti-air, an interrupt during gaps in the opponent's offense with its fast startup and invincibility, your GC of choice, and an anti-GC through special canceling. It can also be used on whiff to do meter gain.

By adding throw invincibility to this special move with the "throw bug escape technique", you won't be easily counterattacked with a throw (especially after the opponent blocks D version break and does reversal throw), so always add throw invincibility if you can. (Especially when you are on the 2P side.)

[2]8B (BR), although -3 on block, distances you safely away from the opponent.

In case of hitting at the corner, you can also follow up with [2]8D.

Whiffed [2]8B (BR) is your best move for passive meter building -- it's somewhat slowish and hard to spam, but you do not stray far from your current position.

Very fast and deals decent damage.

The D version is still a true reversal -- better than B version because of the invincibility throughout all startup and the vertical coverage.

This makes [2]8D and [2]8D (BR) your main go-to for optimal punishes.

But [2]8D is an unsafe anti-air, and [2]8D (BR)'s hitbox is so small and stubby that it whiffs beyond point blank on the ground, making them bad for anti-airing.

1~4F full-body invincibility.

On block, [2]8D (BR) moves you next to the opponent but is at 0 advantage, meaning you are able to move at the same time.

On hit, you can follow up with [2]8D (or [2]8B if you are close enough).

Whiffed [2]8D (BR) done for meter building is also good for movement because it advances forward more than the B version.

Empty break must be done during 2~7F.

1~11F full-body invincibility (just before it hits).

Stubby range, slow startup time, and long recovery.

It's difficult to use because it's a very inconsistent and risky tool that can be easily punished when it fails. Both when (1) done as a reversal -- using it as something like an interrupt during gaps in the opponent's offense or as an anti-air; and (2) done primarily as a combo tool -- that may not even launch if too far away.

Generally it would be useless, but it does have one big utility -- you can follow-up with Houou Kyaku B anywhere on screen afterwards, massive damage for 2 bars.

After Hienzan BR, if Houyoku A is done and connects, it's still possible to follow-up with Hienzan D.

Used in optimal punishes when you have the meter -- just make sure you're close.

1~14F full-body invincibility (past some time after startup). Deals more damage, obviously.

Because of the longer invincibility, it's a better reversal and anti-air tool than the A version.

Still a very inconsistent move, though it's oddly enough nearly twice as safer as the A version (still -28 on block).

You do get a follow-up by either (1) charging/holding C and releasing it after the super freeze; or (2) juggling with Hienzan ([2]8K).

No real reason to ever use this, except for the full charge version.

Kouou Kyaku (236236K)

Houou Kyaku
236236 B/D
A high-performance super special move -- you can say it's Jae Hoon's representative move.
It's a fast rush/lunge type move with a long travel distance that becomes a "ranbu" on hit.
Even though this is a 0F move, both versions' hitbox is narrow/small, so the range at the front is short.
Both versions' rush/lunge speed is about the same, but in the case of the strong version, the travel distance is longer.
There are frequent opportunities connect to this super: from hit confirm, TOP hit confirm, Hienzan (BR) (something like a trade is good), 0F unblockable on landing, and so on.
