Character FAQ for Bakuryu

----------------------------------------------------


  I. Introduction

 This is my first FAQ ever written so it might be a little rough around the edges.

-Bakuryu and Kohryu's combos are so similar that one FAQ is more than needed for 
the two of them. They play almost the same, but Khoryu is more the akuma version 
(In my opinion anyways!)
-In many ways, "cheapness" is his best offense. With more than enough ways to do 
multiple hits to grounded opponents. Try not to do it too often against other people 
though, they tend to get mad.

Throws

f+BL- swings under opponent's legs and smashes them on ground **

------------------------------------------



IV. Combos

*'s again rate what combos I think will be used more often than not.

Starting with Punches

P,K,K,K- ends with the b+K move **
P,K,K,b+K- backflip at end **
P,K,K,f+K,b+K- Front flip then backflip at the end ***
P,P,P,P,f+P(Qcf+P)- last hit lifts off the ground **(only works in beast) ***
P,P,P,u+P- ends with the backflip, very helpful ****
P,P,K,K- launches opponent backwards **
P,P,K,d+K- knocks opponents leg out at end **
P,P,b+K- knocks opponent into the air ****
P,P,P,d+K- knocks opponents leg out at end **

Starting with Kicks

K,K,K- ends with b+k move *
K,K,b+K- ends with backflip *
K,K,f+K,b+k- front flip then backflip at end *
df+K,K,K- last two kicks are high **
Hold df+K,K- two low kicks that hinder an opponent for a split second ***
df+K,f+K,(Qcf+P)- kicks them into air slightly **(only in beast) ***
f+K,b+K- forward then backflip
ff+K,K,K,- last kick slams opponent on ground ***
ff+K,K,K,(d+K,K)- Last hits will only connect in beast form ****

Starting with Beast

B,B,B-smashes opponent into ground at end *
B,d+B- quick smack then kick retreat *
B,B,dd+B- trips opponent at end *
Hold f+B,B,B,B,B- knocks opponent into air ** [Qcf+P after!]
Hold f+B,B,B,B,df+P,Qcf+B- excellent, very confusing
Hold f+B,B,B,B,df+P,K- knocks opponent up slightly






Here are some tips that I think are most useful for winning with Bakuryu.

-12 hit combo only in beast mode (counts from the first forward flip)
P,K,K,f+K,b+K,ff+K,K,K,d+K,K,Hold df+BBBBBBB (you might want to move forward a 
little for the last claw slashes to connect)

-Stunning neckbreaker (only connects in beast)
Ducking+P,f+K,b+K,Qcf+P

-Talk about a sick low-high fakie or massive combo here!
df+K,K,K,Qcf+K teleports you directly behind them to lay into your opponent!

df+K,K,K,Qcb+B,P,P,P,P -then-
f+P,Qcf+P for a 10 hit! 
-or-
B,B,B for a 10 hit!

-Talk about annoying! 3 trips.
Hold df+K,K,db+K then your combo of choice 

-Whenever the opponent is on the ground abuse your right to kick em when they're 
down!
Hold df+K,K after everything when they fall
