Tips for Ken

  • Be unpredictable. Ken’s entire playstyle is centered around mind games and baiting and punishing your opponent.
    15
    0
  • Learn to use pftilt(the move ken flicks his leg straight forward in straight line) since if you can land that, you can easily combo into upair true dp/attack cancel back air/nair up air string etc.
    9
    0
  • I like Ken! He’s from street fighter.
    12
    6
  • Crescent kick (reverse quarter circle) is actually nuts. It combos into literally everything. Down smash, F smash, grab, down tilt, shoryu, nair, and even dair.
    7
    1
  • Almost all of Ken’s moves have multiple degrees to which you can use them, ex. Down tilt has a short and long, his short is perfect for confirms with his inputs or up B.
    5
    0
  • Search up and learn how to perform medium dp consistently, since medium dp(pretty much up b without fire effect and does the double hit effect) kills earlier then fire dp when you and enemy is airborn
    4
    0
  • Slow down, walk in and out of your opponent's burst range. Ken has very good punish so you want to find opportunities to open them up.
    2
    0
  • 0% almost true combo, jab jab, light crescent, down smash, roundhouse. This will net you around 52%. If they shield, use the heavy roundhouse version to break it. Thanks 7.0 for cancelled dsmashes!
    3
    3
  • If you can memorise what his inputs do and what you can do with them than you can destroy.
    0

  • Heavy jab into crescent kick into forward smash is amazing at the ledge
    0
    0
  • Ken has a death combo at 50 percent with rage and a shield break setup. the is the best character in the game
    1
    1
  • You can mix up the end of combos between true shoryu or roundhouse so they cant di brainless. Short side b leads to tech situations at 0 which might lead to deadly combos

  • You can cancel out into a HCB + A and then true shoryuken to Ko at around 75 or 80 percent
    1
    3
  • Don't use heavy tatsu... just don't. It becomes +0 on HIT around 85 percent. It's fine if they don't know what to do, but a jab will almost always punish Ken for landing it.
    0
    4
  • When you play on a battlefield stage, double jump over the enemy and do a side B in his direction to get the first strike easily
    1
    11
  • Always remember to use his up b if the whole thing connects, it's a small combo by itself. If you have to, spam it.
