5. Move Analysis

Flash Punch Combo

Command: 1,1,2

Three quick hits with no guard point that floor your opponent. The last hit is 
the strongest and will hit mid and cause a power wall stun (if close enough to 
a wall). The first two hits are high but they can be thrown without the final 
2 as a nice poking move.

3 Ring Circus

Command: 1+4,2,4

This move can be useful and risky at the same time. Since the last hit can be 
changed to either a high attack or low attack, your enemy will have to guess 
how to block. Since the first hit is low, you can run up and start the combo 
to hit your opponent and tie them up in the move, where they will then have to 
guess the hit level of the last kick. However, this move is not fail-proof. If 
you abuse it, your opponent will duck to block the first kick and then be free 
to punish or interrupt as the next two hits are high. Not only that, if the 
opponent actually DOES block the last kick, you are completely punishable.

Laser Cannon


This bruiser sends three powerful mid-range hits that safely push the enemy 
back on a block. However, there is a second of lag on the first hit, so faster 
characters can interrupt. Although the damage output is high, you will need to 
use the Laser Cannon if your opponent is blocking so that the last hit will 
push him back. b,f+2,1,d+2 will juggle but if the last his is blocked, you 
will be in trouble. The best use for this move is juggling; once you get the 
enemy in the air, unleash the Laser Cannon to deal a ton of damage.

Demon's Paw

Command: f,f+2

This is a quick mid-hitting move that causes decent damage and is safe on a 
block. On CH, it will knock the enemy to the other side of the stage, setting 
you up for a tackle or shoulder ram. It's great to end a juggle with. However, 
it has little tracking ability so you run the risk of whiffing this move when 
it is used.


Command: 1+2
         3+4, 1+2
         3+4, f+1+2

Devil Jin's laser gives him unbeatable range but each one is easy to avoid.

For the 1+2 laser, you can duck it pretty easily. If you see Jin stoop over, 
quickly duck down and edge forwards. Devil Jin has terrible recovery time from 
this move and chances are you'll be close enough to punish him with whatever 
move you want.

When Devil Jin flies up, he will either fire a laser at you or swoop around 
behind you and fire a laser. Although a simple side-step will get you out of 
harm's way, you can also run underneath Devil Jin and pull off a back throw 
when he lands. This can be a little tricky because you will get nailed if 
you're not fast enough.

Devil Jin's upwards laser will not strike any large character if they are 
standing (even Kuma or Jack-5) so don't worry about that. It will only hit a 
enemy in mid-air. Devil Jin's downwards laser can only be used on a character 
who is on the ground.

Heel Drop

Command: d/f+4,4

This is a great move for pushing an enemy back or disrupting an attack. The 
two kicks have no guard point, cause decent damage, hit mid, and are safe on a 
block. Throw this move out whenever you want to keep the enemy on his toes. 
The WS+4,4 version is great for punishing a whiffed high attack or throw. The 
second hit of this move also slams the opponent on the floor during a juggle, 
so it may be possible to follow up with a Spinning Demon.

Rising Uppercut

Command: f,N,d,d/f+2

This is a fast move that causes decent damage and knocks the enemy straight up 
in the air. The big problem with this move is that it hits high, so an alert 
opponent will duck it. For best results, you should use the EWGF version. The 
EWGF comes out faster, recovers faster, and pushes the enemy back on a block. 
This move is great for juggles but it's tough to pull off. You need to press 
the d/f and the 2 at exactly the same time to get it to come out. Practice 
this move a lot.

Spinning Demon

Command: f,N,d,d/f+4,4

This is Devil Jin's signature low attack. The sweep is reasonably fast but it 
requires a fast button press. This is because there is a slow version and a 
fast version. The slow version will not floor the enemy; instead, the sweep 
will cause them to trip and the mid kick will actually miss. By executing the 
motion quickly, the sweep will floor the enemy and then the mid kick will hit 
them in the air. Naturally, abusing this move will only allow your enemy to 
anticipate and block it.

Here some combos for Devil Jin that you might find useful:

1,1,2 (wall), 4
WS+2 1 b,f+2,1,2
b+4 (CH) d/f+1 1,1,2
WS+2 b,f+2,1,d+2 f,f+2
WS+2 1+4,2,4
WS+2 f,f+3,1 b,f+2,1,2
