The Basics

  • Doing hop or low jump cancels into air A version Death Dunk makes for an excellent Death Dunk feint. If they jump high into the air with you can possibly catch them with a grounded A Version Death Dunk.
  • Your main objective as a Lucky Glauber player is to get your opponent near the corner, as this is where Lucky shines. As it's tough for many to escape from him with his many corner options.
  • Your F+B(Lucky Kick) causes a Hard fall as an AA which can prove useful to set up some basketball traps if your opponent doesn't tech roll
  • Far ranged sweep canceled into a late A Version Death Dunk is one of your wakeup offense options if your opponent doesn't tech roll their knockdown


  • cr.B >> cr.B or cl.C >> weak Death Wheel
  • cr.B x 1~3 >> dp+D / your best meterless combo. causes hard knockdown as well.
  • cl.C >> Lucky Kick >> Hell Bound
  • cr.B x 1~3 >> qcf*2+A / Lucky's most viable combo with meter.
  • (Extra Guage) cr.B x 1~3 >> abc >> cr.C >> qcf*2+C / Lucky's most damaging combo you can pull off in most of situation.
  • (Corner)Cr. C >> qcb+B
  • (Corner)AA Death Bound/Death Dunk(Ground) >> C version/SDM Hell Bound
    Even if they block the Death Bound/Death Dunk by Neutral Jump guard/Defensive Jump guard. It sets up enough time to trap them to be hit by super without trading/being stuffed. However it does combo on forward jump I assure you.
