—G

G Smash Over is one of G's special attacks, introduced in Street Fighter V.

Input
Street Fighter V Arcade Stick S+Arcade Button Punch

DescriptionEdit

Executed by performing a "Shoryuken" motion (forward, downward then down-forward) and pressing punch, G performs a simple dash forward and follows-up with an uppercut using his opposite fist. If no directional input or button is pressed, G grabs the brim of his top hat and nods his head arrogantly a few times before dropping back in his stance.

The EX version of this move is essentially the same as the Level 3 Presidentiality. His fists are infused with magma as he delivers a dash punch to his opponent. If the first move hits, G follows up with a straight punch that sends his opponent flying toward the wall. If no directional input or button is pressed, G grabs the brim of his top hat and nods his head arrogantly a few times while snapping his fingers before dropping back in his stance.

TacticsEdit

GSmashOver

Including his other dash punch, G Smash Over is mainly used to end combos. This attack can be linked from most of G's normals. It may have a slower startup than G Smash Under, but it inflicts slightly more damage. It is also -4 on block. If properly spaced, it can be difficult for his opponent to punish since most characters' 4-frame normals don't have much reach. However, this move can whiff if his opponent crouches to avoid the attack at max distance (with the exception of the EX and Level 3 version).

The strength of the punch button pressed determines the move's startup and distance. The Light version covers about 1/4 of the screen. The Medium version travels about halfscreen. The Heavy version travels about 3/4 of the screen. The EX version covers the same distance as his Medium version. Regardless of which punch button is pressed, the damage output of this move remains the same.

Increasing his Presidentiality level gives G Smash Over more damage and better properties overall. The only significant change is that this move becomes unsafe when the Level 3 version is blocked.

Level Description
Lv.1 Default with no follow-up
Lv.2 Launches the opponent higher for better juggle potential
Lv.3 Causes a wall bounce to create more combo opportunities

G can also cancel this move into Message To The People build meter or G Charge to increase the level of his Presidentiality. He can also cancel into his Critical Art. At Level 3, he can cancel into his V-Trigger for better frame advantage.
