Description[edit | edit source]
Executed by pressing Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick simultaneously, Akuma enhances his special attacks, allowing him to cancel his special move into EX special moves. Rather than costing one bar of Super Combo Gauge, Akuma can link his EX special attacks by sacrificing V-Gauge.
Tactics[edit | edit source]
This V-Trigger is 2-bars, making easier for Akuma to obtain while taking less damage. It is also possible that he can use his second V-Trigger twice in one round. When this V-Trigger is active, Akuma's offense is amplified. He can also perform more damaging combos without sacrificing meter. Each of Akuma's special moves is a solid combo ender. With the addition of Shiretsu Hasshi, his combos can inflict more damage.
While no EX meter is consumed, each cancel depletes half of Akuma's V-Gauge. However, he can still cancel from EX special attacks. From Gohadoken, Akuma can cancel into EX Sekia Goshoha, EX Goshoryuken, EX Tatsumaki Zankukyaku, or EX Hyakkishu. From Goshoryuken, Tatsumaki Zankukyaku, or any of his aerial special moves, he can link into Airborne Tatsumaki Zankukyaku or Zanku Hadoken. However, Akuma cannot cancel any special move with the same one.
At best, Akuma can link up to three special attacks in one combo to consume his entire V-Gauge. This is primarily used to create separation while inflicting optimal damage at the same time. In the corner, Akuma can keep the pressure on his opponent by cancelling into EX Sekia Goshoha to create some insane blockstrings that deals a decent amount of chip damage. However, Akuma is unable to use Shun Goku Satsu, which is one of his Critical Arts that require him to use his first V-Trigger.
