Garou: Mark of the Wolves/Tizoc

From SuperCombo Wiki

Introduction

Tizoc, also known as The Griffon or Griffon Mask in Japan, is a professional wrestler who hails from Mexico. He has many fans and is idolized by children as a "hero of justice". After a demoralizing loss to a mysterious man, he enters the Maximum Mayhem tournament to regain his fighting spirit.

Gameplay

Tizoc is the grappler of the game. His main gameplan is to poke and pressure the opponent with his long-range normals and to go in for a command grab once he has conditioned the opponent to block. He generally wants to maintain a mid-range distance from the opponent in neutral where he can play a footsies game by being in range to reach the opponent with his pokes, while remaining outside the range of the opponent's normals. At this range, he is able to keep the opponent out with his great air-to-air capabilities and also threaten an approach with a potential command grab.

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Good range and damage on normals
  • Good neutral and air-to-air game
  • Higher defense and guard crush gauge than average
  • Unblockable command grab super
  • Forward feint moves him forward and has upper-body invincibility
  • Struggles to build meter
  • Limited combos that are mostly reliant on having P-Power
  • Practically no grounded blockstrings
  • Lack of good reversals aside from Big Fall Griffon (720 super)
  • Command grabs are unreliable for punishing due to the throw bug

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".)

Tizoc's farthest reaching poke with great range. This move has slower startup than his 5A so it is ideally used when you are outside of his 5A range. Another normal that is very good as a check against dashes/runs and for controlling the ground space in general.

Slow startup but is safe on hit/block (can be feint cancelled on block) and does good damage. Has slightly more range than his 5A but slightly less than his 5B. Can be used as a slow check/counter-poke and works well as a far-ranged meaty.

A slow normal that typically isn't used. The startup is too slow to be used as a reliable anti-air. Usually you get this move unintentionally when you "whiff" his D throw.

Serviceable as an anti-air if well spaced. The move hits at an approximate 45 degree angle, so it works best as an anti-air when the opponent is jumping in from farther away, otherwise it may be possible for them to jump right above Tizoc from up close. Should not be heavily relied on as an anti-air as it is slow and can still be air just defended.

Has a similar range to his j.D with 1f longer startup and is active for 1f less, while doing less damage. Generally not used too much aside from instances where you would want less pushback or would want to combo into Icarus Crash. It is slightly harder to guard cancel against compared to j.D, due to being a light normal.

A good forward jump and hop normal with a hitbox extending below Tizoc's torso, more suited as a closer jump-in than his j.D. Useful as an air-to-air if the opponent tries to jump after your pokes to escape your command grabs. Can also function as a cross-up.

One of Tizoc's best and most versatile normals. Has great range and works well as a forward jump or hop normal. Excellent as an air-to-air from a neutral or back jump and can be used to keep the opponent from jumping in and approaching from the air. A staple in his air-to-air game.

Mainly used as a guard cancel against fireballs or to go over grounded fireballs like Rock's Reppuken or Terry's Power Wave. Depending on the spacing, the move can be hard to punish for some characters due to its pushback on block, but it shouldn't be thrown out in neutral too much as it has slow startup and is easy to jump over.

His D throw is generally used over this throw, unless you need the few extra points of damage with the follow-up to kill. Can set up a reverse guard/same side cross-up after the throw or follow-up by walking slightly forward and hitting the opponent with j.C around their turning/side switch axis (easier to do in the corner).

Tizoc's main normal throw to use. Does decent damage. It can give better positional advantage with corner carry and gives better okizeme than his C throw. If the throw "whiffs", a cl.D or far 5D will come out and can potentially anti-air an opponent who tries to jump. Tizoc's throw is generally used in place of his regular command grab, Justice Hurricane, in situations where you would want a faster punish in close range or when the opponent may attempt the throw bug.

Mimics the start of 2AB.

Moves Tizoc forward slightly and gives him upper-body invincibility. Can be used to evade various higher-hitting normals and specials, and as an anti-air against various jump or hop normals. Typically used in conjunction with Justice Hurricane, Big Fall Griffon, or his D throw as a follow-up to whiff punish moves that are evaded with its upper-body invincibility.

This is the feint you want to feint cancel with. Due to it moving Tizoc slightly forward, it can be used after one of his pokes (that can be feint cancelled) in order to move him closer in range of a command grab.

Tizoc's main command grab. It has fast startup and does good damage. The A version has slightly more range and leaves you closer to the opponent after the knockdown for better okizeme, but does less damage than the C version. The A version is generally preferred in the corner for its stronger okizeme. Midscreen you can pick between the C version for raw damage or A version for its slight amount of additional range and some, albeit weaker, midscreen okizeme.

An elbow drop that hits overhead. Arguably Tizoc's worst special move, it has very slow startup and is fairly unsafe on block and whiff. You're much better off going for a jump or hop normal for a faster overhead that would also give you frame advantage on block as well. The only reasonable situation where you would want to consider using this move is in a chip kill scenario in the corner, wherein you can cancel into the B version from one of his pokes.

D version has 1~3F of full-body invincibility, 5~17F are airborne.

A lariat that can be used to control the space directly in front of you against opponents who try to jump/hop/run/dash in. You can cancel into this move from a light normal and use it as an anti-jump frame trap against an opponent who might try to jump to escape a potential command grab. Keep in mind that this move has a fair amount of startup, is still fairly unsafe on block, and whiffs on crouching opponents, making it fairly risky. It's not a move you want to throw out in neutral too much, but it can at least make the opponent more hesitant to jump so you can land your command grabs more often.

This is a command grab that only works on standing opponents (whiffs on crouch). The A version has faster startup but shorter range and the C version has slower startup but farther range. You're generally better off going for a Justice Hurricane instead of using the A version. The C version is too slow to be used on reaction to fireballs (only as a read) and is more of a hail mary. Can be used sparingly to catch the opponent off guard and trick them into stand blocking against a potential jump-in, most practically in the corner. The move results in a side switch if it lands, making it more practical for round finishers to avoid cornering yourself.

A command grab that does little damage itself, but results in a wall bounce (to the opposite wall) leading to a small follow-up combo (into either Poseidon Wave A, Icarus Crash, or Daedalus Attack B). It has much slower startup than Justice Hurricane and its meterless follow-ups result in less damage than a Justice Hurricane C, making it somewhat obsolete. Generally only used as an anti-air guard cancel, which is possible thanks to its slow startup.

Tizoc's air grab which isn't actually an air throw but a hitgrab that can be just defended in the air. It does decent damage otherwise. You can combo into this move from a j.A or j.B as an air-to-air. You can also kara cancel into this move from his 5AB or perform a faster instant air version with a TK motion and kara cancelling from a jump normal (e.g. 2369B~A), which results in doing the move lower to the ground. The instant air version can be used as a preemptive anti-air after one of Tizoc’s pokes to deter the opponent from jumping forward. The move results in a side switch if it lands.

Tizoc's command grab super. Basically a beefed up version of his Justice Hurricane with greater range, faster startup, full-body invincibility on startup, and of course, more damage. Aside from the damage difference, both the A and C versions more or less have the same properties, apart from the C version resulting in a side switch. Generally more advisable to go for the A version unless you can kill with the C version.

A version has 1F of full-body invincibility. C version has 1~3F of full-body invincibility.

A series of strikes/lariats. You can only combo into the B version from Hercules Throw, but the B version does relatively poor damage for a super; it only results in slightly more damage than his meterless follow-ups making it only worth spending the meter on for the kill. Despite having some invincibility frames, it’s not used as a reversal because of its slow startup and being extremely unsafe on block.

Tizoc is able to combo into the D version of this super from any of his cancellable light normals, making it much more useful than the B version, alongside dealing respectable damage. You'll mainly be comboing into this super from a jab (either 5A or 2A) as a punish or as a hit confirm. Like the B version, it’s not used as a reversal.

1~11F of full-body invincibility.
