Description[edit | edit source]


Executed by pressing Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick simultaneously, Urien channels electrical energy within him. While this V-Trigger is active, Urien has access to mult-hitting tackle attack called Tyrant Blaze. By pressing Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick during this state, Urien delivers two Chariot Tackles; one from each shoulder. By holding Heavy Punch and Heavy Kick, Urien performs four Chariot Tackles; two from each shoulder.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

Unlike his first V-Trigger, Tyrant Pressure is 2-bars, making easier for Urien to obtain without suffering much damage. The installment of this V-Trigger can be cancelled from most of Urien's normals. Once active, Urien has access to mult-hitting Tyrant Blaze attack to amplify his offense. Each usage of this move consumes about 1/4 of V-Gauge. Urien can use this attack up to three times before his V-Gauge is completely depleted.

Both the charged and the uncharged version of Tyrant Blaze puts the opponent in a juggle state, making this move a decent combo extender. The uncharged version is quicker to execute. It can also be cancelled from Urien's normals or target combos. However, it inflicts less damage and stun compared to the charged version. Additionally, the only follow-up moves that Urien can use after the uncharged version of Tyrant Blaze is Light or EX Chariot Tackle, as well as Quarrel Punch.

The charged version has a longer startup, but inflicts more damage and stun with significant corner carry. This makes it easy for Urien to apply pressure on his opponent by pushing them into the corner, regardless of initial position. A fully charged Tyrant Blaze leaves opponents in a free juggle state, allowing Urien to perform more damaging combos. For example, after the last hit of the charged Tyrant Blaze, Urien can follow-up with Crouching Heavy Punch or Light Dangerous Headbutt if he has his opponent in the corner. A maximum charged Tyrant Blaze can guard break. While Urien still gets the same combo potential, the guard break scales the damage.

This V-Trigger enhances Urien's pressure game. While charging this move, he receives one hit of armor. This allows him to stuff most attempts of a counterattack and apply offensive pressure at the same time. However, Urien has no armor during the tackles, even on fully charged. The only exception is if Urien has his V-Skill active. While Urien does lose the side-switch potential that his first V-Trigger gives, he can get a few decent resets with Tyrant Pressure.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Tyrant Pressure is likely based on Tyrant Slaughter, Urien's first Super Art, which also involves a chain of Chariot Tackles. The main difference is that the Super Art uses a clothesline as a finisher, whereas the V-Trigger doesn't. However, Urien's EX Chariot Tackle can be juggled after Tyrant Blaze, effectively reverting back to the original animation.
