Overview

"Gu heh heh heh!"
Lore:Born from the body of a worker in the Other-World being possessed by escaped souls from the Soul Cleansing machine, Janemba is a heartless demon with a similar personality to Kid Buu, as well as similar powers. Janemba's base form (a large, yellow creature which appears in his intro sequence) is similar to Majin Buu, as a childish yet a godly warrior. Janemba has the ability to bend reality to his will, as he did with Hell. After a severe beatdown from Super Saiyan 3 Goku, he morphed into an even more powerful and vicious form, Super Janemba. In his super form (As he appears in FighterZ), he can change a small rock into a giant pillar, or a small toy into a sword. He is also capable of changing his body at will, such as change into cubes to teleport, or create portals for individual parts of his body. Janemba was defeated by Super Gogeta, the fusion of Goku and Vegeta, and was only defeated due to Gogeta's overwhelming power, allowing the Other-World workers to restore Hell to its normal state.
Playstyle
DBFZ Janemba Icon.png Janemba is an unorthodox zoner-like character, who has very strong pressure and long ranged tools to manipulate the match to his will, and make the opponent guess several times of where he might show up next to hit them.
Pros Cons
  • Space Control: Traking (albeit slow) Ki Blasts and Sword Specials that destroy projectiles give Janemba screen control and a way around Ki Blast zoning.
  • Anti-Meta Tool: 22S forces opponents to stop using projectiles and assists during neutral, and on successful counter can either get a combo or start pressure.
  • Teleports: 214S/236S are both Janemba's main mix-up options and pseudo-reversal, being fast and invincible starting frame 4.
  • Momentum: Always gets a sliding knockdown with j.2M, and 236H+S always pushes the opponent into the corner he's facing.
  • Support Value: A Assist is a tracking SSJ Vegeta A assist and gives big combo extensions. B Assist is excellent for blockstrings and space control in a way that A is not. C is a combination of both as a 50-frame tracking C assist.
  • Beeg Boi: Huge hurtbox and somewhat slow in terms of his moves, making it hard for him to get set up sometimes. The classic big character issues.

5L 400 All - 6 3 12 -3 -
  • Just a jab.

Worse range than 2L and will whiff in more situations than you would like. Mostly used as a bridge to your autocombo normals. If it was better it would be a better complement to 5LL, but it doesn't quite check superdash.

5LL 700 All - 11 - - -8 -
  • Ground bounces on hit.

Large hitbox, good for mashing and "anti-airs." Extraordinary for combos and blockstrings like everyone else but it's held back by 5L.

5LLL 850 / 600*2 All U3+ 36 - - -11 -
  • Teleports forward and can cross over the opponent. Hitbox is behind Janemba.
  • Switches sides on hit.

The online special. You can tell whether or not Janemba did 236/214S or 5LLL by the startup animation, Janemba will leer forward with this. Very slow, has a huge gap making it mashable, and unsafe on block. Use scarcely.

  • Good range, moves Janemba forward.
  • Good for staggers, always spaces perfectly for 2L to connect on block.

Janemba's only safe medium. Makes up a large portion of his stagger game. Decent starter in terms of damage, but 2M is still your go-to.

  • Deflects Ki blasts like other sword normals.
  • Any normal > 5H is NOT a true blockstring.

Useful as a frame trap but not much else than that. In blockstrings you're most likely going to skip it because of the gap.

300*4 All - 22 - - -21 -
  • 5S, 2S, j.S are similar and has some limited tracking.
  • Hold or mash S to shoot all 4 Ki blasts.
  • Can controls where he shoots with InputIcon 5.png InputIcon 1.png InputIcon 3.png InputIcon 6.png
  • Without inputs, the order is 5316.
  • 5 and 6 ground bounces airborne opponent.
  • Last Ki blast ground bounces even grounded opponent if it's 5 or 6, pops up grounded opponent if it's 1 or 3.

Janemba's Ki Blast is a tool with far more nuance than most other character's Ki Blasts. It's slow, but you can force the opponent to respect it by cancelling into Demonic Blade. Doing this with the first Ki Blast can force an opponent back to the ground and be cancelled into Mystical Arm instead of Demonic Blade once the opponent is conditioned to sit still. It's also an incredible combo tool, as steering the Ki Blasts to force a ground bounce gives way to all kinds of relaunch combos.

  • Basically Cooler's 2L, exchanges the low property for huge range.
  • Really good for staggers due to its reach.
  • Longer range than 5L, therefore more common after a teleport.

Pretty amazing button. Despite this move not being a low, it is a core part of Janemba's pressure.

  • Janemba's only low.

Janemba's core mixup doesn't really revolve around his 2M because it's so slow. Your main mixups are with teleports, but 2M will almost always be your most damaging starter.

  • Anti-air. Deflects Ki blasts.
  • Huge vertical range, it's as tall as the screen is. Horizontal range is absolutely pathetic.
  • Bad in combos because of the low horizontal range.

Your anti-air and nothing more. Useful in that it enables a j.H sliding knockdown, which in turn can enable Hell's Gate okizeme, but that is mostly relegated to the corner.

  • Slightly floats off the ground.
  • Cancellable from 5S.
  • Unlike 5S and j.S, can't control the first Ki blast's direction.
  • No input order is 1536.
  • Can be cancelled into 2M for a sliding knockdown.

Similar in use to 5S, but it leaves you airborne instead of being grounded. Acts as an extension in a way, and adds an easy conversion to 2M for a meterless sliding knockdown.

j.M is forced to take the spotlight because of how bad j.H is. All things accounted for, it still has strong frame advantage if your opponent blocks it and it is really good for crossups.

  • Deflects Ki blasts.
  • Halts momentum and ground bounces grounded opponent.
  • Use j.L or j.M for IAD overhead instead.

Huge hitbox. Despite it being like Hit's j.H it still has uses, especially in 2H Smash combos, as it is easier to set up j.214x oki with this move due to being able to special cancel it. It's not the best in neutral but it can be somewhat useful in the corner to keep your opponent in place, although this is tricky.

  • Tracking overhead that causes sliding knockdown on Smash hit.
  • Janemba teleports to the ground on hit. This makes frame advantage the same regardless of where you use it.
  • Always leaves Janemba +32 on hit.

This is your go-to combo ender. When you're close, it allows a Superjump IAD j.M safejump for easy continued pressure.

  • Teleports a set distance. Invulnerable from frame 4, making it a very strong escape option.
  • After inputting either versions, holding any of the 8 directions will still make him teleport to that direction anyway. Default is InputIcon 6.png for 236S and InputIcon 4.png for 214S.
  • Grounded InputIcon 2.png stays in place, InputIcon 1.png and InputIcon 3.png teleports slightly closer than InputIcon 4.png and InputIcon 6.png. All 5 off these versions keep Janemba grounded.
  • Air versions can only be performed once until landing, can also teleport back to the ground.
  • Both ground and air versions don't consume air options, they also keep super jump's momentum control.

Janemba's main mixup tool. You can teleport to either side of the opponent, air or ground. From there it's up to you if you want to just go low or mix in an airdash to create some really nasty setups.

  • Like many ki blast-based assists, can be reflected/superdashed during. Interestingly, the first Ki Blast is not reflectable.

The ultimate double edged sword, Janemba's assist is both really strong and not that good. While it does enable a lot of characters to have unique setups into high-up combos, or even enable characters to get Dragon Rush in the air mid screen or in the corner without spending a meter, it also does not have too much use outside of that. As a pressure tool it is almost impossible to use - while Janemba is hard to hit himself during the assist so it will not be interrupted, it is simply four ki blasts and they can be easily reflected or superdashed through. This can be used for baits, but it is still hard to effectively use this properly. In neutral, it is hard to use for the same reason - it's tracking helps a lot, but it is simply four ki blasts and can be easily dealt with by most characters. He can use it similarly to Gotenks assist, and as such setups with Gotenks usually work with Janemba (although a bit worse) and in the air it is much better than it is on ground, but you still might not get a lot off of this. It's not the worst assist in the game, but it's not amazing either.

This assist really emphasizes Janemba's spot on the team as a point character, sometimes a mid - it can open up a lot, but you won't lose much if he dies and you can't use it.

  • Deflects Ki Blasts while active.

This assist, while not being as strong in combos as Assist A, is also a very potent assist. It's half-screen range allows for it to be used almost as a beam, and it's blockstun solidifies this role. Best blockstring assist outside C, making it your go-to for characters that need blockstun.

  • Teleports to the opponent's position on the ground.
  • 3rd hit comes out only on hit.

50-frame C Assist. Useful if you absolutely need a lockdown assist, and pretty decent because Janemba doesn't really need that kind of assist himself. Startup is lessened in combos allowing for easy extensions.

  • Minimum damage: 815
  • Causes sliding knockdown.
  • Teleports back to the ground on hit.
  • Cinematic Super, cutting it early by DHC does slightly less damage without any benefit.
  • Is Janemba's DHC Super.
  • Always leaves you +4 on hit, no matter the height you started at before the super.

Good damage for a super. Because of it's cinematic nature, it will always result in a sliding knockdown. The entire time the opponent is falling and sliding is open for DHC's, making it really easy to extend into other supers. In terms of a normal combo ender, does not really allow continued pressure.

  • Minimum damage: 799
  • Corner carries.
  • Also a cinematic Super, cutting it early ruins the corner carries AND does slightly less damage.
  • Doing j.236H+S will get Rakshasa's Claw.
  • Unscaled damage is the year that his movie came out.

You'll mostly be using this super midscreen because of it's corner carry. Otherwise you'll be using 236L+M for it's superior damage.

  • Minimum damage: 1672.
  • Advantage on hit:
  • Air version will always teleport Janemba back to the ground afterward.

Lets Janemba get a meaty midscreen and a teleport mixup in the corner. 236S[6] > 2L will cross up, 236S[3] > 2L will stay same side. They hit on the same frame and the opponent only has 19 frames to react to which side (12 frames of recovery from the teleport and 7 frame startup from 2L). Watch Alioune for more advanced setups, but this alone will get you pretty far.
