Introduction

The 1995 Interquel that tells the story between Street Fighter and Street Fighter II along with Final Fight characters, and was rebooted in the sequel (Ken's Ending can be the only cannon fact in this game, due that he fought in the first USA Martial Arts Tournament instead of the World one that had won by Ryu).

Escape Roll

Immediately after a knockdown, do Qcd.png+Lp.png, or Mp.png, or Hp.png. This will roll you towards your opponent.


The main Huge key difference in this game is that EVERY SINGLE knockdown aside from Akumas Raging Demon can be rolled And All rolls go the exact same distance.


Due to the fact You can roll almost anything Chuns regular grab and both of rose Soul throws are punishable on hit,You can also roll Through guys level one kick super before the last hit connects.


When Punishing a roll The enemy is put into FORCED STAND therefore You always get your Best combos And can do massive dizzy off a roll punish with the good characters.

Auto Roll

Auto Recover

Dizzy Recovery

Every single character in SFA Only has 40 points of Stun.


When You hit 40 points you get dizzy and you mash all attack buttons and directions to get out,In this game dizzy duration is very short if your good at mashing so Landing a jumpin afterwards can be quite hard unless your in a very good position.


After every time you get Dizzy 5 points are added to the Dizzy meter 45,50 etc realistically You wont be dizzied More then twice Every match even against top tiers since you just dont have that kind of life in this game And generally Its still only once per round.

Negative Edge

Alpha Counter

Taunt Start

Chain Combos


Supers

supers can not be blocked if your not blocking before the super flash and are close enough effectively making almost all supers 0 frame startup in a sense(just like rolento tripwire in a2)


The only exceptions are


sodom 720 you can jump it like an alex power bomb : *(


Adon kick Super


Birdie supers aside from the charge one


Ryu Tatsu Super


obviously rose jump super and shadows since one is a buff and one is a antiair move
