Description[edit | edit source]

Executed by pressing Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick simultaneously, G powers himself up as his entire skin turns gold. While this V-Trigger is active, all of G’s special moves are strengthened to their level 3 Presidentiality. He can also cancel his special moves into each other. Additionally, G's V-Skill can be launched as a projectile.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

Maximum President is a very powerful, yet versatile V-Trigger. It gives G access to his buffed special moves at Level 3 Presidentiality until his V-Meter has been completely depleted. This allows him to perform powerful combos that not only guarantees optimal damage, but tremendous corner carry as well. In one combo with his special moves at max Presidentiality level, it is possible for G to send his opponent from one corner of the stage to the opposite corner. He can also cancel his special moves into other Level 3special moves without spending any of his Critical Gauge. A prime example is linking G Smash Under into G Spin Kick to inflict maximum damage and stun.

Another aspect of this V-Trigger that makes G more dangerous is the buffs to his V-Skill. G Barrier gains the properties of a projectile. The ground version travels fullscreen horizontally, while the airborne version travels at a downward angle. This not only makes this move more of an offensive weapon, but it also makes it safe on block since it pushes the opponent back. On hit, it puts them in a juggle state, setting G up for some damaging combos.

G can cancel into his first V-Trigger to make most of his punishable normals and special attacks safe. Additionally, his Presidentiality level remains at the highest level, even when knocked down. When his V-Gauge is depleted, G's Presidentiality returns to its original level prior to when his V-Trigger was activated. However, the duration of the V-Trigger depends on what level G was at prior to activation, ranging from 2500 frames for Level 1 to 3500 frames for Level 3, encouraging G to still maintain his levels even with these enhancements.
