The Not-So-Beginners Guide to using Dudley in Street Fighter III: Third Impact v 1.0======== 09/12/99 Decided to write a faq because there seems to be no faqs on him floating around anywhere. First attempt at writing a faq, even though Ive helped a couple of people make one themselves. This will be updated sometime, probably after Ive gotten the feeling back to my hands from typing all of this the first time. NOTE========= This faq assumes you know the basics of SF3. This faq covers the special moves, super arts, and combos for Dudley. The basic moves will be added later on. SPECIAL MOVES Rocket Uppercut (f,d,df,P) The strength of the punch button determines how high Dudley goes in the air. This is the basic "Hey look I've got a Dragon Punch!" move. It has fairly good priority on jumping attacks. The downside is that it has very little forward range, so most people have to be right on top of you for both hits to connect from the ground. The EX version comes off a little faster with more forward range, so it's more likely to give you both of the hits. Machine Gun Blow (hcf,P) Dudley dashes forward a little bit, and unloads with several quick jab- type punches with one hand. The strength of the punch button determines how far he goes forward. This move is useful as a move to tick energy away from a turtler, for mid-air attackers who have learned to parry the Rocket Uppercut, and is one of the basic moves in most of his combos. The EX version makes him pull off the punches faster, auto-matically dash the right distance, has more hits, and ends with a uppercut than you can use to juggle with. Dashing Straight or Uppercut(hcf,k; P or K) Dudley ducks and rushes forward, ending with either a straight punch or an uppercut. The kick on the first motion determines how far he rushes, and on the second button press, P makes him do the straight and K the uppercut. This is another move that has several uses. When he dashes forward, he goes under shoto player fireballs to give them a little surprise in their face. Its also used in a couple of juggle combos. Finally, you can do the motion for the rush and not press a button for the punch just to use it as a quick dash forward. Note that it cannot be made an EX move. Bob-and-Weave (hcb,k) Dudley takes a quick dash backwards and then back forward with a close-range body blow. The step-back length is determined by the strength of the kick. EX version does the same motion but he uses a quick three punch combo instead of one punch. This move is much better than the one that its replacing from 2nd Impact. The main uses for this punch are when waking up, and also when someone is jumping in on you. One piece of advice on this one; don't use it in the corner. You don't go anywhere. You just take a really long time to do a normal punch. Avoid unless you like eating Super Arts. Crosscounter (hcb,p) Dudley procedes to look stupid, and during this time if he is hit with a high attack he will take the normal damage for the move, and hit for roughly twice the damage of his fierce punch. The weaker the punch button used, the shorter his counter will travel, and the longer that he stays in this move. EX version makes him do two hits when it's activated. A few suggestions on what not to use this move on: projectiles, Super Arts, and low attacks. You'll feel some pain if you do. Secondly, don't use this is you cant take the damage. During the last hit of the match, if there damage is enough to knock you out, your punch will do no damage. The best time Ive found to use this is an air counter. They come in for a jump kick, go into the move, and they get hurt and you look stylish. SUPER ARTS Super Rocket Uppercut(cant remember the official name on that one) qcfx2,p Of course. Anyone who has a dragon-punch type move has to have a triple version of it as a super art. Its law. He does three rocket uppercuts. Fairly good damage on this one , and you can charge two of them. The downside on this is that if you catch them with this in the air, chances are on the third uppercut, they will go the wrong way and it will be a complete whiff. Out of the three arts, this is my second fave. Rolling Thuder (qcfx2,p,p rapidly) Dudley dashes forward till he reaches his opponent, when he starts to beat the hell out of them, ending with an uppercut. This is the most powerful super art he has as far as damage is concerned, but its my least favorite for a few reasons. Almost no combo ability with this one at all, and you can only charge one. Another reason for my hatred for this move is that if you get blocked, you might as well send the will out to the family, because youre over with. Upclose and looking stupid with your arm in the air....not a good position to be in when you cant block. Corkscrew Blow (qcfx2,p) Now its time for the one and only super art for me. Dudley unleashes a straight punch that hits five times, while moving forward a bit. This is my super of choice unless I just want to have fun. It will hit people coming in from the air, surprising them with it 9 out of 10 times. Also the Corkscrew has the most combo potential to it, and allows you to charge three of them in a very short amount of time. Finally, if it does get blocked on the ground, youre far enough away to block all but a far reaching sweep most of the time. I like to occasionally do another one if the first one is blocked, because the start up time is next to nothing and you can ofter get another one off during the time they are still trying to counter the first one. But if it is blocked with you deep into them, they can counter you. And its actually the least damaging of the super arts for Dudely. COMBOS #1 Up close- LK,MK,MP,HP-----This is his basic chain combo, good damage. #2 Up close- MK,HK,HP-----A variation on his chain combo. Does about the same damage but it comes out slower for less hits. #3 Jumping HK deep, standing HK, machine gun blow FP------One of the best combos for him Good damage and stun. #4 Jumping HK deep, standing HK, rocket uppercut-----More damage than #3, but less stun. Also note that you can cut off the uppercut with the Corkscrew. #5 Crouching FK, jumping FP----Good for confusion tactics. If in the corner they can be hit with a super art on the way down. #6 Crouching FK, MK dashing uppercut----Decent damage, and the uppercut can be cut off into a Corkscrew Blow if done quickly. #7 Up close LK,MK,MP, Corkscrew Blow---- Tiiming has to be real quick on this one. Start the motion for the super during the MP animation to connect. #8 Jumping FK deep, standing FK, EX machine gun blow, MK dashing uppercut on the way down and end with a Corkscrew blow----Now this is a combo to impress people with. Hits for about 45% damage and 15 hits. You can finish with the rocket uppercut super art, but the third uppercut misses unless you hit them real deep when they fall back down. But if you nail all of that one, its about 55% damage and 22 hits! Contact If any corrections or additional combos are out there, let me know. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks to: Well, so far Im the only one who has worked on this, but this space looks so empty. Okay then, special thanks to me for getting to a new level of boredom to make me write this faq. Pointless Addition And heres my last thought: if you are a shoto player and cant use anyone else, at least have some style. No one likes a turtle.
