Overview[edit]

Jack-O brings a new and unique fighting style to Guilty Gear. Her gameplay revolves around the summoning of three types of Servants that gravitate their way towards the opponent attacking them when in range. These Servants begin at the base level of 1 where their attacks are weak and have short range, but throughout the round there will be opportunities to level them up to their max level of 3. At level 3 the Servants have increased range, damage, and some Servants even attack multiple times in a single strike. Utilizing their various attacks and special abilities combined with Jack-O's own make for a formidable pressure game that can overwhelm the opponent.

Strengths[edit]

  • Extreme corner pressure with Servants that can eliminate many options for retaliation
  • Many moves to keep the opponent in the corner, and to buy time so Servants can level up
  • A variety of high/low/unblockable moves to keep the opponent guessing
  • Normal attacks can be used for serious frame-traps and space control (neutral)
  • Her Servants can be a major distraction to the opponent's game plan if placed correctly (especially when they are clocked-up)
  • Gains serious amounts of Tension when standing near stationary Ghosts and also from Servants attacking the opponent
  • Can be a good choice for players new to FGs or players who are "not FG players" otherwise, due to her generally simplified inputs & overall different playstyle

Weaknesses[edit]

  • NEEDS servants for safe corner pressure
  • Her D attacks automatically consume a small amount of Tension to enhance themselves, making her heavily meter-reliant
  • Tension is needed to get out of oppressive situations
  • Servants can sometimes interfere with progress if you're not careful (random hit/s aspect)
  • Loses a LOT of momentum when servants leave (by hit or time) and Ghosts are destroyed


Normal Moves[edit]

  • Somewhat good poke for catching people trying to jump
  • Good ender for OTG combos to push the opponent away

Has decent range and can be good for a poke. Because it hits more upward, it can be better than fS to catch people trying to jump. Also good at the end of OTG combos to kick the opponent away.

  • Good for stagger pressure to buy time for servants to catch up and lockdown the opponent

Mostly used in stagger pressure or combos. It's +3 on block so it's great to use in stagger pressure to help give your servants time to catch up and lockdown the opponent. Combine it with varying resetting pressure with 2K (Also +3) during your stagger pressure to maximize it's effectiveness.

  • Good poke
  • Good round start option
  • Good point for varying your pressure

Jack-O's best ground poke. Pretty good option at round start. Has good range to challenge what other characters can do at round start and even on block, it'll still let you set up a Ghost. Though not used often because of Jack-O's more unorthodox pressure and mixup structure, it can still be a good place of variation in a blockstring due to its ability to be normal, special and jump cancelled.

  • Emergency anti-air
  • On CH, blows back full screen

Not as desirable to use as an anti air as 2S because on CH, it'll blow back full screen instead of giving you a full combo. However, it's very useful as an anti-air in tight situations because of the usual 6P 1F upper body invuln.

  • Good Overhead
  • Good for beating wakeup throw attempts

An overhead. Under normal circumstances, you can't convert it into a combo meterless unless a Knight or Lancer attack happens to be timed to attack at just the right moment. Usually to convert this into a combo meterless, you'll have to your servants constantly attacking while they're already locking down the opponent. That said, if you have 50 meter, you can always convert this into a full combo by doing 6K RC > Air dash j.S > j.HS.

Because 6K makes Jack-O airborne, it's also good for beating and punishing an opponent's attempts to throw on wakeup.


6H[edit]

30,50 All JS - 7 2(9)8 19 -8
  • Situational long range anti-air
  • Good for standing loop combos

Can be a good long range anti-air or prevent people from jumping out of getting locked down by servants in some situations. The tricky part with using this is that whiffing it can end with you eating a full combo because of the recovery. You mostly want to use this either when you're dealing with opponent's with a lack of air options or sluggish air movement or when you have knights and lancers covering the ground to minimize the risks of getting whiff punished. For the most part though, 6HS will see most of its use in Jack-O's standing loop combo that does pretty nice damage.


3H[edit]
3H

Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
30 Low No - 11 15 9 -10
  • Jack-O's sweep
  • Sometimes good round start option
  • Low profiles.

A standard way to end most ground combos since it gives knockdown in front of you and allows you to set Ghosts, pick up Ghosts to throw, reposiiton yourself to hide behind advancing servants or just go in for a regular blockstring. However, you should keep in mind servants in the area and whether they're likely to attack next. A knight or lancer could help you extend your combo if their attack timing is in sync with your combo just right but they could also hit the opponent OTG and ruin a hard knockdown setup. You'll need to be able to know in advance which one it'll be and act accordingly

3HS can sometimes be a good option at round start due to its ability to low profile some of your opponent's round start options. On hit, it'll let you set up a Ghost or two. On block, it's usually safe-ish because of the distance away from the opponent you'll be doing it from. The biggest danger here is whiffing 3HS entirely can lead to punishes or putting you in undesirable situations, which is why you probably won't be using this option as much as others.

  • Good overhead when opponent is being locked down by Clocked Up Servants
  • Low profiles at the middle of the animation
  • Uses 10-15% Tension if you have the Tension

Jack-O's Dust tends to get more mileage than your typical Dust. In situations where you have the opponent locked down with Clocked Up servants, 5D can be a good overhead option because of the red glow of the servants can make it hard to see the usual red flash that a dust makes. Also because of its ability to low profile, it can also to beat a poke when used sparingly. Due note that like all of Jack-O's D moves, it'll use meter if meter is available. The metered version has quicker start up than the meterless version.

10,40 All No - 11[16] 9 26[31] -11[-16]
  • Uses 10-15% Tension if you have the Tension
  • Alternate ground combo ender, staple air combo ender
  • Strike Grab that can be combo'd into
  • You can determine the direction the opponent will be sent flying by inputting it on your stick/controller during animation
  • Can be a (cheeky) opener depending on matchup

An alternate way to end your ground combos. Mostly used when you want to throw the opponent to the other side of the screen away from Jack-O or sideswap them into the corner. Be sure to confirm the current situation of your servants before attempting to use this in a combo. If they're too close to you and their next attack is timed just right, it could mess up trying to throw them away and instead force the opponent to air tech near you.

This is the usual air combo ender for Jack-O combos. When determining which direction to have the opponent spit out, be sure to verify the current situation. For instance, if your close to the corner, you'll probably want to toss them into the corner and proceed to try and have your servants lockdown the opponent. Other times if the right servants are nearby, it might be best to have the opponent spit out towards them to try and extend your combo.

It does need to be emphasized that, despite the move behaving in most regards like a throw, the initial hit behaves like a normal mid attack, meaning it can be blocked and punished from all positions.

It can also be used a somewhat cheeky opener, depending on the matchup and what the opponent chooses to lead with. If it does strike, it puts you in an excellent position as you absolutely have time to set down at least one Ghost and get Aegis Field up if the matchup calls for it. It is a risky opening, however, as a number of opposing openings will beat it in frames handily.

Due note that like all of Jack-O's D moves, it'll use meter if meter is available. The metered version has quicker start up than the meterless version.

  • Can be a good mixup from time to time
  • Uses 10-15% Tension if you have the Tension

Command grab. Rarely used as a mixup due to a combination of the unorthodox structure of Jack-O's pressure and the risks of getting punished when people jump out but it's still good to use every now and then. It can't be converted into a combo normally midscreen but its damage on its own is pretty good.

Air version doesn't really get used.

Due note that like all of Jack-O's D moves, it'll use meter if meter is available. The metered version has quicker start up than the meterless version, along with increased range.

The move you'll use when you want to open people up with a low. It's also +3 on block so it's great to use in stagger pressure to help give your servants time to catch up and lockdown the opponent. Combine it with varying resetting pressure with c.S (also +3) during your stagger pressure to maximize its effectiveness.

Jack-O's go-to anti air. While it isn't 1f upper body invuln like 6P, her hurtbox is pretty low to the ground and the upward vertical kick has good vertical range (but limited horizontal range!). On CH, you can convert it into a full combo.

  • Sometimes good for buying time for servants to swarm
  • Mash HS to make more hits come out

This normal typically doesn't get much use. However, in some situations, the many hits 2HS can trap an opponent in blockstun or prolong a ground combo long enough to give time for her servants to swarm the opponent so you'll want to be on the look out for these situations and use this normal accordingly

Zest is 1f strike invuln and can be used like a regular DP, though it will lose to well-timed throws. Due note that like all of Jack-O's D moves, it'll use meter if meter is available. The metered version has quicker start up than the meterless version. Also, you should keep in mind that 2D's horizontal range is limited, and it can be outspaced by characters with good range.

  • Uses 10-15% Tension if you have the Tension
  • Without sufficient Tension = 1 shot, With sufficient Tension = 3 shots
  • Metered version is good for buying time for servants to catch up and lock down
  • Metered version is good for creating a safer way to land

The version that doesn't use Tension hasn't seen much use, but the metered version of j.D can be good in two situations. The first situation is when you have the opponent in the corner and you need to buy time for your servants to catch up and lock down the opponent. In this situation, jumping into the air and forcing them to block the 3 fireballs from the metered version of j.D can be helpful when varying your tactics to buy time to keep your opponent guessing. The tension version is a block-stun nightmare.

The second situation that the metered version comes in handy is when you are in the air above the opponent. In this situation, the 3 fireballs can be useful to cover your landing against opponents trying to wait down below to Anti Air you. If the fireballs miss and you still have unused air options such as an air dash, be sure to use them to try and get yourself to safety.

  • Sometimes a good mixup when combined with IAD Ghost Throw
  • Solid defensive option

A good mixup to go for sometimes when combined with IAD Ghost Throw. The key here is to have a good understanding of your spacing when you do IAD Ghost Throw so that you know before hand that the Ghost will actually whiff over your opponent slightly so that you can throw them when you land. In general in Guilty Gear, ground throws can be good defensive options to deal with certain situations because of how quick they are. After a ground throw, you should have time to either set a Ghost, pick up a Ghost to throw, retreat back behind advancing servants, etc.

This can be especially problematic in situations when you want to attempt to lock down an opponent with servants by hindering their movement and options by throwing Ghosts. In these situations, you might consider retrieving your Ghosts so that you can place them down again for better positioning.

  • Great combo extender
  • Can be good to buy time for servants to catch up
  • Burst version is a Good reversal to turn the tides but pricy (consumes Burst)

Because of its large amount of hitstun, Calvados gets most of its use as a combo extender. If your opponent is near death, consider extending a basic combo by using Calvados and then going into an air combo. Alternatively, in corner situations where your servants are lagging behind, throwing in Calvados into your blockstring can buy you some time for them to catch up. This works especially well when combined with mashing 2HS for additional hits.

Like most Burst-enhanced supers, the Burst-enhanced version of Calvados is 1f invuln and can be used as a reversal. More pricey than your other options since it'll cost both 50 meter and a Burst, but Calvados has a lot of blockstun/hitstun and can be safe-ish on block while converting into a full combo on hit.

  • Good metered reversal

Command Grab super. It isn't useful for mixups because it has 3 frames of startup after the super flash for the opponent to jump out of on reaction to seeing the super flash. However, Forever Elysion Driver is 1f invuln and can also be used as a reversal. Compared to 2D, it costs a lot more meter, but the jump forward gives it more horizontal range, though it'll lose to airborne opponents since it's a grab. It also does a lot of damage. If you have 75 meter when attempting to use this as a reversal, be sure to react to what the opponent is doing during the super flash and YRC if necessary to save yourself from whiffing and getting punished.

Uniquely, despite being a grab, it can be combo'd into on certain situations, and can also be used as an air combo ender.
