Neutral Jump Medium Kick
Diagonal Jump Medium Kick
ROUNDHOUSE (HARD) KICK
Standing Heavy Kick is a 2-hit attack at anything but close to maximum range with the first hit doing 40 Damage/125 Stun and the second doing 70 Damage/75 Stun. The farthest range only gets the last hit, making it not as useful at that range due to low damage and stun. This makes it a good armor breaker or to stuff a Focus Attack. Can be used as an anti-air in some situations. At close range this move does a lot more damage and stun than if at long range.
Crouching Heavy Kick is a slide with a range of about 1/2 the screen. If it hits you get an untechable knockdown. Using this at its maximum range makes it pretty safe if it is blocked.

Diagonal Jump Heavy Kick is a jump-in attack.
In air, near wall, up twoards.
Piece of Mercury
- Great move can be used in a variety of ways such as corpse hopping and tick-throwing, and can be followed up with alot of his normals and should be followed up with EX-FBA or Scarlet Terror. Can also use EX-SHC to attempt a cross-up.
- Anti-Air Cosmic Heel (DF+HK) combos into U2. Can also combo into U1 but ONLY the UP HIT and not the follow up animation (may be character specific).
All three punches
- Invincible backflip that dodges everything but can be punished easily.
All three kicks
- Shorter version of Backslash, also completely invincible with less chance of being punished, but it's still easy too. Use both sparingly.
