From Shoryuken Wiki

Introduction

New character of Psycho Soldiers team.

Zoning character

Bao is Athena's disciple

In-depth Analysis

Qualities :

  • One of best zoning characters cause various fireballs at air and ground with good startup (best fireball of game)
  • Small hitbox making people modify their playstyle against Bao. Bao is one of more annoying characters to face thus
  • One of best characters in counter mode
  • His usual combos are pretty safe on block
  • One of best j.cd of game
  • Can jump off walls, which is really useful given his playstyle
  • His air d + B considerably slowed down opponent's animations, which makes this move unpunishable in many situations. His air d + A has good priority and wide blockstun.


Faults :

  • Many normal attacks are pretty bad : few reach and average priority
  • Not really combo friendly (his dms don't pass in combos, with 1 very useless)
  • Don't built meter quickly
  • Average damage
  • Uncancellable cd
  • No viable anti-air
  • Is bad at infighting



Mid-tier as Striker.
