Description[edit | edit source]
Pressing Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick simultaneously will activate this 2-bar V-Trigger that gives Vega access to a counter attack and a launching attack. By pressing Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick simultaneously, Vega sways in an attempt to parry his opponent's attack. If the parry connects, Vega kicks his opponent twice, launching them in the air.
Pressing forward, along with Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick will have Vega instantly attack his opponent with the kicks without the counter.
Tactics[edit | edit source]
The parry only works on hits, instead of projectiles. If timed correctly, Vega becomes invincible during the counter and launches the opponent instantly. Vega can also use the launching attack by pressing forward, plus Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick. This attack serves as a solid anti-air option, which is something Vega lacks in Street Fighter V. This will allow Vega to follow up with special moves or even his Critical Art. It can be used for some damaging combos. However, as soon as Vega uses his launcher attack, whether as a counter or raw, his whole V-Gauge is consumed.
While utilizing his counter attack requires Vega to read his opponent and anticipate their attack, this V-Trigger compensates his subpar defensive game. Both of his V-Reversals moves Vega backwards, possibly trapping him in the corner. In addition, Vega has no invincible reversals, no armored moves, and no invincible Critical Art. This V-Trigger not only gives Vega a defensive option, but it also more rewarding, compared to his first V-Trigger. With Alegrias, Vega can inflict more damage and more combo potential at the same price and same conversions as Bloody Kiss.
