I like to play arcade fighting games King of Fighters etc but I love the Steet
series all of the games are good but this one really stands out the most and I
have really been mastering Gouki since I got it On Japanese import last year.

III.Info about Gouki (Akuma)
As I have the Japanese version of the Game Akuma is called Gouki on my version
so don,t get confused.
Gouki is Ryus worst enemy even worse than Sagat. Gouki is a cold fighter with
evil intentions and has many awesome moves. Which is why he along with Evil Ryu
is my favorite character who I have mastered over the years.
Goukiís Street Fighter III 3rd strike storyline
Well once again a new threat is upon in the name of the fire and ice god Gill
who is a master
Street Fighter to all except in Goukiís eyes that is, after his confrontation

been in a fowl mood ever since he caused chaos through out the Zero/Alpha
series decimating all who opposed him and he arrived
in Super Street Fighter 2 X and Destroyed Vega (M.Bison) And made a statement
now that another battle is about to begin and knowing of Gills power and the
fact that Ryu is going to be present in the ďfight for the futureĒ Gouki has 2

will lose ALOT of energy you have been warned!

VII.Super Arts
Messatsu -Gou -Hadou -QCF,QCF+P Super bar I

command - | \ --O, | \ --O +P
          O  O     O  O

gauge - <-------------------------> 2

Gouki powers up and throws a super charged fireball doing huge damage.
Its best combined with the normal Gou -Hadou for double damage , to
combine it quickly do a Gou-Hadou then immediatly after that do the
Messatsu -Gou -Hadou its also a great suprise/wakeup move too.

In the Air -Tenma gou zankuu -QCF,QCF+P on Super bar I

Command in air | \ --O ,| \ --O +P
               O  O     O  O

gauge - <-------------------------> 2

This super art is done in the air use this one to counter Ground -air
moves like the Shoryuken. Damage =25% The Air version Damage =27%.

Messatsu -Gou-Shoryu -QCF,QCF+P Super bar II

command - | \ --O, | \ --O +P
          O  O     O  O

gauge - <------------------------> 2

Gouki powers up and delivers a super Gou-Shoryu shich also does a huge amount
of damage. It is best used to counter other super moves such as kens
Be cautious with this as if its blocked you could take a ton of damage.
 Damage =32%.

Messatsu -Gou-Raisen, -QCF,QCF+K Super Bar III

command - | \ --O, | \ --O  +K
          O  O     O  O

gauge - <------------------------> 2

This move can also be done in the air. Gouki stretches his leg out and spins
whilst going up in the air at the same time.
Itís best used to counter an opponent who is in the air so you can counter them
below.be careful though as if blocked you are very vunerable to alot of damage
from your opponent.
 Damage =35% Air version damage =36%.

Shun-Goku-Satsu -(Raging Demon)-LP,LP,F,LK,HP,Any Super bar on MAX

gauge - <-----------MAX-----------> 2

This is the ultimate finishing move Gouki charges up and glides towards the
opponent if he grabs them the screen will go white and he will kick 15 shades
of hell out of them literally wiping them out resulting in the demon symbol
appearing and Gouki
engulfed in flames. I usually jump in with a HK hoping they block it then I do
a standing HK then when they block it I immediatly set the Shun-Goku-Satsu off
and it usually gets them It can also be cancelled out of Goukiís Over head chop
,I myself sometimes use it to get through other super combos and special moves
to hit it.
Another common way its used is after a super or Special move where the
character goes into the air and comes down vunerable there you can perfectly
time the Shun Goku Satsu and it will connect.
Another simple trick is to throw a Flame fireball up close and Then as they are
parrying or Blocking it cancel into the Shun Goku Satsu and it will get them.
It can be cancelled out of a HP Gou shoryu but its very annoying to do so dont
really bother with that technique.
One other way that comes to my head is to do it out of the Hyakki Goujin and
cancel into the Shun Goku Satsu but its hard to perfect but it can Be done.
Use it also to counter through an opponents air parry of your Zankuu Gadou ken
too, use it as a suprise move or as a fast recovery move too.
Damage = 46%.

Kongou Kokuretsu Zan (Gateway to Hell) -DDD+PPP , Any super bar on MAX

command - | | | +PPP
          O O O
gauge - <-----------MAX-----------> 2

Another very powerful move, this time Gouki charges up his fist and punches the
ground causing some purple spikes to come out of the ground and destroy his
opponent. Without a doubt the best time to use this is when your opponent is in
the air as they canít defend against it.
A good little trap with this is do do a HK Tatsumaki zankuu kyaku then as you
land they will most likely attack you so as soon as you land pause for 1/2 a
second then do the Kongou kokuretsu zan and they will perish if done right as
they will be in their character will be in a move animation frame so they cant
do anything, be a bit cautious though as some supers can over come you so
really do it when they havenít got any Super power stocked.
Damage =52%.

IX.How to beat Gill using Gouki
These are the main pointers you should take into account when battling Gill.

>When he goes for that diving air punch whack him with a Gou-Shoryu

>At the start of the Rounds throw a air Gou hadou to give yourself some space
to plan
your next move.

>When he does his resurrection move Quickly do a Gou-Zankuu -Kyaku then when he
falls to the floor if you have a MAX gauge go for the Shun Goku Satsu (Raging
Demon attack)
And about 90% of the time it will get him.

>To dodge his Meteor shower super art -if you are close and he sets it off then
quickly Sweep him D+HK and the move will stop.
if you are away from him then you can either block or do what I do and teleport
through it.

>If he goes for his Rainbow energy super art then you could be in trouble it
cant be parried but if
you block it you can still lose up to 40% of your energy ,
to avoid it completly as he goes into the air you can stop him if you are close
with a quick
Gou-Shoryu however if you are far away then Teleport just as he gets to the
middle of the screen make sure you use the long distance teleport then you
should teleport right through the move.
Time it wrong though and you have had it!

>The rest is up to you as we all have our own different methods of actually
attacking him these are just the main things you need to watch out for and the
info on how to deal with that situation.

X.Fighting against Gouki in arcade mode
You battle Gouki on either stage 7 ,8 or if hes your character rival 9.
Here are some pointers to beat this evil tyrant

>Gouki will fight very offensively and will hardly give you a break so you need
to be on your guard all the time.

>Bigger characters like Urien ,Hugo ,Alex and Q should focus on parrying Goukis
moves as they will never match his speed.

>Gouki will always try to combo you then link to a super Art thats usually how
he behaves when you battle him.

>However his Defence isnt that great and Shoto players can pretty easily bring
his power down when Gouki jumps with a Dragon punch or EX Dragon punch
(shoryuken) Chun li ,Remy and Oro players can also really capitalise on this

>Suprise supers usually get him if he knocks you down near the corner as soon
as you get up set off your super Art and its likely to get him the only ones he
may avoid are grapple ones.

>And thats it really just focus on catching him out and take advantage of every
opening and try and use alot of suprise Supers or EX moves are just as good as
well follow this and you will have him down in no time.

XI.Fighting against the other characters in arcade mode
These area few pointers to beat each of the characters alot of these pointers
may be very useful against Human opposition with these characters so bear that
in mind I am mainly just mentioning pointers for overcoming the most common
moves that  the Character in question will typically use.

>Alex  will often try to either use LP or MP Flash chop or a EX version to set
you up for a grab or super which can be quite crucial in Goukiís case due to
his damage factor.
> Alex will mainly wait for you to make the first offensive attack so they can
overcome it with a more powerful attack the best way to deal with this is to
bait them with a LP Gou hadou to bring them to you then if they parry the thing
jump in HK and follow on or if they block do the same thing and follow it on to
a combo.
>Alex  will often try to combo you with the Air stampde attack when he rolls at
you as he comes down you can easily block and cancel into a Super Art or even
throw him or if you are a good parryer then it can be parried pretty quickly
and hit with a Super.
>That move can also be countered into a Raging Demon provided you time it right
so keep that in mind as it can come in very handy hehe.

Chun li
>Chun li players can be possibly some of the hardest to over come alot of
players like to use anti air attacks  -SA I for example or kara throws with her
she has the best in the game in my opinion.
>Chun li  tends to jump alot so some Gou shoryus will come in handy but use
them at a well timed situation.
>Alot of players will use the spinning Bird Kick or EX version as a suprise
wake up call it can easily be overcome with a well timed Gou hadou and if you
are on Super Art I cancel in to a Messatsu gou hadou for the full damage
provided you are charged of course.
>With alot of Chun li players Super Art II the Houyoku sen is the most common
choice against Gouki due to its power there are alot of chipping tactics what a
player might adapt to to execute this so you do have to be careful here one
thing you can do is when its activated quickly teleport just behind her and hit
her with a Super if you have one or better yet in you are at MAX Hit her with
the Raging Demon.
>Some Chun li players will use Fireballs to bait you in to one of their traps
possibly leading to a air juggle using the Hazan shuu so just stay at a
distance and parry the fireballs.

>His machine gun blow can be very annoying to deal with as it comes at you very
fast but you can either parry it or block then quickly reverse with a Gou hadou
and if you are charged a Messatsu gou hadou or if you are on Super Art II you
can counter with a LP gou shoryu then cancel in to Super Art II -Messatsu gou
shoryu or infact you can do this tactic on Super Art I and cancel the gou
shoryu into a Messatsu gou hadou.
>Use air gou hadous to sort out his Jet upper attacks and dont forget to cancel
into the super Air gou hadou if you have a charged super Art I bar then you can
really take him out!
>You have to be cautious of Dudleys charge moves the Ducking straight and
Ducking upper are often used as Suprise attacks and can really catch you off
guard if you are not careful.
>In terms of Super Arts Its really Super Arts I and III you have to mainly
worry about these super arts can come out of nowhere so be very careful.

>She can be great Raging Demon bait or any super bait really her rhino horn
attack is brilliant for getting Elena in either a throw a Super Art any of I II
or III will be able to be used to counter that move but Blocking her attack
then cancelling into the Raging Demon is much more entertaining use the same
things mentioned here on the EX version as well.
>Her handstands can be really irritating and can catch you off guard pretty
easily luckily she isnt an amazingly high damage giving character which is a
definate plus in Goukiís book.
> Elena will try to hit you with the EX Lynx tail then cancel into a Spinning
beat or brave dance super Art so try to block the EX lynx tail rather than
parrying it as a clever player will use your parry time to hit you with a Super
>When playing Elena players do expect to encounter alot of EX moves there are
just so many cancellation techniques a player can do with Elena so bear that in

>Hugo is a Huge (no pun intended) threat to Gouki due to his power and Goukiís
damage weakness so you need to be extremely careful against this big brute.
>If he has a fully charged Gigas breaker -super Art I then if you must Teleport
use EXTREME caution a good Hugo player will easily grab you in a gigas breaker
whilst you are teleporting and you lose up to 75% energy so please remember
>Hugo will use the mega throw to bounce you off the wall to either juggle you
or to hit you with a Super Art this could be lethal in Goukiís case you need to
really take this match with alot of caution and youíve got to use your speed to
your advantage if you want to win this fight.
>Try and Keep a fair bit of distance between you and Hugo for most of the match
as really you cannot afford to get grabbed by any of Hugos grapples or youíre
going to take alot of damage Use gou hadous to keep him at bay and under
pressure whilst you charge your Super Art bar up use Gou shoryus to take down
and air attacks he may attempt.
> when he goes for an attack like his butt backwards dive attack you can
quickly take advantage of the opening and hit him with a Super Art.

>Most Ibuki players mainly rely on her speed and her fast attacks to out wit
most characters so you have to be prepared for this.
>Alot of players using Super Art I will usually try to combo you and finish
with that super Art in the air ,many that i have encountered have jumped in the
air and done a EX Kunai and cancelled into the Kasumi suzaku super Art when
they jump in the air to attempt this bring them down with a gou shoryu.
-If they activate the Kasumi suzaku you can either block or if you are good at
parrying parry all 20 hits of it or you can Quickly Teleport to the other side
of the screen and hit Ibuki with an attack or combo of your choice.
>shes practically vunerable to any move in that situation so take advantage of
>Her other common  CPU attacks like the Hien or Kubi obi can often be evaded
with a quick timed gou hadou and so can the EX versions.

>Ken players can be some of the trickiest to over come due to Kens speed.
>His Shoryu Reppa and Shunryuken can easily be blocked then countered with a
Raging Demon as he is comming down from doing the move.
>His EX Helicopter kick can easily be countered into a combo with a gou hadou
and if you are using Super Art I then dont forget you can cancel the gou hadou
into a Messatsu gou hadou for double damage.
>If you are at a distance parry his hadokens if you are pretty close Jump in
Deep with a HK and combo him.
>His shoryukens can easily be sorted with either a air fireball or super Air
Fireball if you doge it from the ground you can hit him with a Gou shoryu
whilst ken is up in the Air.

>Makotos moves can have alot of priority over Gouki shes known as one of the
top shoto killers in the game with her speed and agility she can be a deadly
person to deal with.
>Her super Arts I and II can be very devastating against Gouki due to his
damage handicap.
>Alot of her moves if blocked or parried leave her open for a brief moment this
is your chance to capitalise and hit her with the most devastating combo you
have got.
>If you are charged to MAX you can hit Makoto with the Kongou kokuretsu zan if
she is on SA II and you are standing when she goes in the air but you have to
be very quick or you can block the kick and hit the Shun Goku Satsu.
>Another idea is to juggle her up as much as possible a Makoto player who isnt
ground based isnt going to do much.

>One of the more frustrating characters to beat is Necro he can be so annoying
so you need to be on your game.
>One of the nastiest  combos a Necro player can do is a  Denji blast then
cancel into a SA I Chou denji storm that combo can be very devastating.
>Once again  juggle him as soon as you get the chance and turtle a bit just for
defences sake.
>Most of Goukiís moves have more priority than Necros so take advantage of
those Gou shoryus.

>A good Oro player can put you through absolute hell mainly because of his
superior speed and fast tricks he can pull.
>Alot of oro players mainly pick SA I -kishin riki mainly because  they have 3
options with this super they can hit you with the air  Kishin K jigoku guruma 
and the  Kishin Tsui all of which are absolutly devastating  if you are caught.
>Use air fireballs to keep him down to a good ground base and juggle him at
given oppotunities
>when he does the Junchuu watari you can easily hit him with an air Gou zankuu
and captialise on a juggle combo.

>Q is a slow character so use your speed to your advantage
>Watch out for his SA II as that can be a match decider against Gouki
>Play offensively on him and donít turtle or he will take advantage of you.
>Alot Q s moves can come at you fast even though hes a slow character so be
ready for that.
>So bascially keep the offence on combo and juggle when oppotunities are given
and be careful if your opponent is using SA II or III as they are deadly
against Gouki Qs SA I can easily be blocked then comboed so keep that in mind.
> Q in arcade mode is a piece of cake god knows why Capcom made him a secret

>Remy players can be the hardest to overcome due to their quick speed and high
attack priority.
>Air parrying his Flash kick is a good thing to do practice doing that.
>His super Art II -Vierge ni ansoku O -can be Raging Demoned with perfect
timing it has to be timed to gab him the mili second Remys feet touch the
ground if done right theres no escape!
>look out for the combo of EX  Vertu no zankou haute to SA II that combo can
really catch you out.
>You do have to turtle a bit with Gouki against a good Remy player due to his
>When you  get the chance go for a Gou shoryu then cancel into a SA thats a
good damage move on Remy.

>Ryu is possibly the biggest threat to Gouki of them all esspecially if they
use the Shinshoryuken SAII.
>If at all in a corner and Ryu  has a charged SA II then dont risk Teleporting
as he will probably hit you with the Shinshoryuken during the Teleport.
>Ryu is slower than Gouki so use your speed to your advantage
>The shinshoryuken SA is vunerable to the Raging Demon and Kongou kokuretsu zan
like Remy with perfect execution when Ryu is in the air you can get him with
either of these moves as he comes down.
>Try and juggle him too as most of Ryus strength is on a ground base.
>When he hadokens you jump in on him deep or Demon flip him and do a combo.
>To take out Ryus Dragon punch either air parry or do a air Gou hadou tha will
do the job nicely.

>Sean is perfect for parry training on esspecially if the CPU or your opponent
uses the Hadou burst SA I .
>Gouki can easily out do most of Seans moves
>Sean is slower than Gouki so take advantage of this.
>His airborne moves can easily be juggled and comboed.
>His Sean tackle is good for getting him with a Super Art esspecially a Raging
>Some players may distract you with his basket ball taunt so watch out for
>If he attempts the Dragon smash hit him with a Air gouhadou or in on SA I
cancel it into a SA Metsassu gou hadou.

>The worst thing that can happen with Twelve when vs the CPU one is if heís
using SA III X.C.O.P,Y  as he will be able to morph into Gouki and then he will
play as hard as the CPU does when its using Gouki against you so need to be
prepared for this.
>Other than that really Twelve isnt really a huge threat at all just keep
juggling him and all should be fine.
>Be careful when you jump in as  he may use an EX  arm attack move dont remeber
the name but you will know it when you see it.
>When he flies in the air evade his attack and bring him down with a HP Gou
shoryu or jump up and Juggle him.
>Most of his moves leave him pretty vunerable to SA s as well so take

>Urien players can be very nasty some can even get 100% damage so a good mix of
offence and defence is needed here.
>Parry his fireballs and EX versions or jump in on him and juggle him up.
>His violece knee drop can be countered with a Kongou kokuretsu zan provided
the timing is perfect it needs to be timed jut before he comes down.
>Its good if you can land a demon flip and then combo them into a super then
send them oblivion.
>Just remember that screwing up can cost you against Urien.
>His super Art I  - Tyrant punish  can be easily blocked then countered  with a
combo or Super Art.

>Yangs speed can be very overwhelming for Gouki  so you have to be quite
cautious and take advantage of every mistake.
>Look out for Yangs senkyuutai as this can set you up in the air for a Yang
juggle the best thing to do here is to block it and then counter with either a
combo or a  Gou shoryu and then  cancel it into a SA either I or II are best.
>His EX torou zan can be pretty lethal and its very quick you could parry it if
you are skilled enough but its probably best to jump up in deep with a HK then
combo it.
>Yangs SA I and II arenít too hard to overcome  just Block them and counter its
not a hard task.
>His SA III can be very dangerous esspecially if the player using it knows lots
of good combos your best bet is to get in and ruin their combo before they get
to power up and start it.
>Most of Yangs other moves leave him vunerable to an attck or combo if blocked
or parried so take advantage of this.

>Again Yunís speed is his strength and you need to take advantage of every
mistake that occurs.
>Alot of Yunís moves can have better priority over yours than Yangs could .
>but again most of his moves if blocked /parried at the right time will leave
Yun vunerable for a good Juggle.
>if the opposition is using SA I then be a bit cautious due to its power.
>Again SA III is a threat as if the opponent knows his combos well you could be
in for a very nasty juggle combo again the best way to deal with this is to try
and stop the combo from even getting off.
>Yun is slightly slower than Yang so is easier to connect hits with.
>When in the air if he uses SA II and you block it You can pretty easily
juggle/Super Art Yun into oblivion in no time.
