Nothing too special about 5P, not recommended for anti air use, as 5K is better. Can be used for tick throw setups for Wild Throw. 80% proration (no proration in DI).

3 frame startup and hitboxes make this move a very good anti air. 5K(2) has a hitbox above and in front of Sol. On air counter hit can be confirmed somewhat easily into air combo>VV>knockdown.

Can be gatling'd into from 5K and 2K, mostly for midscreen meterless combos and 2K>c.S can serve as a bit of a frame trap.


f.S

Damage Tension GB+ GB- Level Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff
30[28] 2.64 10 7 3 HLF CR 7[5] 1[1] 24[14] -11[-1]

f.S has a far reaching hitbox that can be used in footsies. If you land f.S, the most you can do is 2S>5H, distance depending. It is also a useful corner pressure tool, to hit people out of poking attempts.

Damage Tension GB+ GB- Level Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff
40[44] 3.84 20 6 5 HLF CJR 11[6] 2[1] 26[13] -9[+5]

Slow startup, but can be confirmed on hit or counter hit into Grand Viper's clean hit into a Sidewinder loop. On CH, it is possible to Instant Air Dash jS and continue into a Sidewinder loop. This move is jump cancelable but is -9 so it's not a good idea to be predictable with it.


6P

Damage Tension GB+ GB- Level Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff
32 2.64 10 7 3 HLF CR 11[6] 3[2] 20[10] -9[+2]

6P will beat out a lot of poke attempts and can be confirmed into a combo from corner or midscreen. Has some upper body invulnerability so it can be used as an anti air. 2P>6P is also a good frame trap available for use.

Frames 1-8 [1-4], Frames 14-21 [8-11] upper body invincibility. Frames 9-13 [5-7] above the knees invincibility. Wall bounces on hit (on ground hit untechable for 28F). 90% proration (no proration in DI).

40x2 5.76[3.84]x2 20x2 6x2 5 HLF CR 13[8] 5,1 30[16] -12[+2]

On hit, this move is insane. Everywhere else, it's very punishable. Therefore, it should only be used as a punish, or if you play a really random sol, used in footsies... or as a meaty. Leads into very very damaging combos, and can combo into Gunflame or Grand Viper.

Staggers on ground hit (max: 35F). DI version doesn't stagger. Dizzy modifier x1.5. In CH state for entire duration.

Sol's Dust. It is an overhead and the ensuing homing jump can be used to start a Sidewinder loop if the Impossible Dust combo is used, if not try to get as much damage as possible and end with VV>knockdown.

CH state from Frames 1-30.

Can be combo'd off meterlessly of if done near/in the corner... not much else to say, it uses 6P's animation so if anything it can possibly be low profiled but not crouched under. Something silly like Grand Viper might be able to beat this.

Frames 1-13 invincible. Frames 14-33 invincible to throws. Frames 14-23 upper body invincibility. Wall bounces on hit (untechable on ground hit for 28F). 50% proration.

2K is a low and gatlings into 2H which can combo into Grand Viper, allowing you to convert a low into damage. Can also be used to go into Wild Throw in a tick throw setup. 70% proration (no proration in DI).

25[24] 2.64 10 7 3 HLF CR 10[7] 3[2] 8[5] +3[+7]

Good normal because of the range it covers. It's also +3 so it's a good normal to end blockstrings with, or if done close up, can be used for a Wild Throw setup if your opponent doesn't expect it. Has very little recovery, so can also be used to whiff cancel things like 6P or f.S if done at a far enough range.

Damage Tension GB+ GB- Level Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff
36[40] 3.84 20 6 5 HLF CJR 8[5] 6[3] 26[13] -13[+3]

Hitbox is a little in front and above of Sol. It can beat high priority jump-ins or at least trade with them, better than 5K would. However this move is a little slow, so it's not exactly advised. Used mostly in relaunches and comboing into Grand Viper. Free combo on CH. Floats on CH (untechable for 52F) (DI version doesn't float). 90% proration.

This move is just amazing with a variety of uses and is probably Sol's best normal. Sol is in a low profile state through most of this move's duration, he can actually 2D under ground bursts and be avoid them. This move can be used to avoid things like Ky's Stun Edges, Johnny's Coins, Jam's Ryuujin, and many others by 2Ding under them. This move is also a low, and leads into big damage by special cancelling into Bandit Revolver or if it's on CH Gunflame>FRC or Gunflame>Fafnir. Frames 4-23 [3-15] low stance.

0 Recovery frames. Not a typo at all. This move has some very interesting uses, and during its duration, Sol's hitbox changes, making him hard to be hit or air grabbed. The attacking hitbox is in front and slightly below him. It is actually possible to hit with the last few active frames of this move and airdash afterwards for a fuzzy guard 50/50 on certain (tall) characters. Large amount of active frames make this move popular for Sidewinder loops by using 2H>jH>Sidewinder. Untechable on air hit for 17F (doesn't apply to DI version).

There was once a time when this move was its own combo, namely the Dust loop. It's not necessarily bad, it still has a good hitbox and on counter hit gives wall bounce. jD is used in Sidewinder loops to reach max possible damage. Since it floats on hit, it is possible to do something like Instant Air Dash jS>jD>Sidewinder or land Fafnir to go into a Sidewinder loop. Blowback on normal hit (untechable for 23F). Wall bounces on CH (untechable for 54F). Additional 5F landing recovery. 90% proration.

This move is integral to Sol's pressure game. FRCing Gunflame allows you run in and continue pressure strings. It is also a very very damaging combo starter. If done too close to the opponent without FRCing, it's punishable. It's not recommended to end blockstrings with Gunflame all the time, unless you can FRC.

Gunflame:Floats on hit (untechable for 28F). CH state till end of recovery. Chip damage x2. FRC timing 14-15. Flame appears on frame 19. Damage, Active, and Level vary depending on which of the 4 flames hits. Flames appear on frames 21,31,39 and 42. Gunflame can only hit once.

The greatest. Ever. If you know when your opponent will do something unsafe, this move will make them regret ever trying in the first place. Invulnerable during startup frames up until active frames, it also serves as a meterless reversal. It has a great hitbox, and is all around a good move, however punishable. It is possible to input the command for knockdown on whiff to delay your landing by giving yourself more air time. There will times when you use this move and get away unpunished. On counter hit, you can actually land and run up 5k relaunch for a meterless Sidewinder loop if it counter hits on the second hit or late active frames of the second hit. Used in combos for knockdown into oki.

This move is a bit silly, being in low profile state most of the time and leading into ridiculous amounts of damage on hit. It is very unsafe on block and it is possible to throw Sol before he hits with the last part of Grand Viper. In order to get a Clean Hit with Grand Viper you have to wiggle the joystick/dpad directions while pressing 2 buttons at the same time, and there is a certain timing to get the Clean Hit.

Frames 1-4 above the knees invincibility. While advancing, Frames 5-16 invincible above the feet. Advancing part: 1st-6th hits are untechable on air hit for 26F. Causes 24F of hit stun on a standing opponent. Hit stop 6F. Dizzy modifier x0.25. 80% proration. 7th hit of the advancing part floats on hit (untechable for 28F). Hit stop 6F.

Ground Bandit Revolver is used at the end of Sidewinder loops for knockdown, and also for ground gatling combos for knockdown. Air Bandit Revolver has an FRC point on it during some active frames and startup frames. Air Bandit Revolver FRC can be used for a variety of this such as working as an airdash for 25% meter, while keeping air options, can be comboed from 5K/5S, effectively allowing Sol to do big damage for half the meter, can be used to close distance as the momentum he carries after the FRC is very fast. It can even fuzzy and be used in pressure. Dragon Install Bandit Revolver can be looped very easily, 5K>BR>land 5K>BR xN.

Ground BR: Frames 1-3 invincible to strikes. Airborne from frame 9 on. 1st hit floats on hit (untechable for 26F). 2nd hit plummets and causes knockdown on air hit. Auto jump installed. Sol is crouching during landing recovery.

This is an overhead, a very very slow overhead. If used sparringly, it has its uses. It also has an FRC point before the startup of the punch. On hit, it will floor slide, allowing you to combo into a Sidewinder loop. Fun fact: Bandit Bringer loops on Potemkin in the corner.

Frames 1-3 strike invincible. Airborne from frame 9 on. Causes slide effect on hit (untechable for 65F, slide for 50F). Causes ground bounce on CH (untechable for 140F).

This move is an overhead. It has an FRC point before the active frames begin and has hilarious uses and can actually be used to bait things. It also is a good starter, capable of doing anywhere from 40% to 65% damage. If used right in the corner, it's practically an instant overhead. WARNING: WILL LOSE TO PRACTICALLY ANY UPPER INVULN 6P.

The real reason (beside Sidewinder) that you play Sol. This is a command grab, and it is the bane of people's existence.

Your other reason for playing Sol. Staple combo move. Wallbounces on Clean Hit, and allows you to continue for about 2 or 3 more reps while still giving knockdown. Sidewinder loops generally go on for 3-5 Sidewinders and can still end in Bandit Revolver. All Sidewinder mentions in are assuming Clean Hit.

Straight punch to the face. Has startup throw invuln for the first 7 frames but becomes active on the 11th frame. Could be used for some throw baiting or to catch people backdashing or jumping out... or a really unexpected poke, since on CL or CH that's 50%.

This used to just be an overdrive, but now it's a force break. Pretty much only good for chipping people or unburstable kill off of wild throw. Can lead to SW loop if you're near the corner or can IADSW.

If done at distance it's almost safe, because the opponent will be too far to punish. Has invulnerability frames and is unburstable, but if you wanted to use this as reversal, it's a better idea to use VV. One very funny setup is to Tyrant Rave Beta(1)>RC>run up Wild Throw. They'll never see it coming.

1-8 strike invincible, 1st hit causes knockdown, 2nd hit wall bounces, (untechable for 40F), Dizzy modifier: 1st hit: x0.25, 2nd hit: x0 Chip damage: 1st hit: x1.5, 2nd hit: x2.0 2nd hit has 70% forced proration, 2nd hit RCable provided the first attack hits or is blocked, 2nd hit can pass through projectiles.

This move is mostly bad, but can be good, rarely. If you get knocked down, say goodbye to the round. You lose all tension on knockdown. This move lasts longer the less health you have, and you progressively gain tension automatically. Most of Sol's moves become + on block AND ALL of them are faster (5D becomes a 16 or 17 frame overhead), but less active. Sol also moves extremely fast.

Frames 1-18 invincible. Frames 19-21 invincible to strikes. During DI, tension increases at a rate of 0.1% per frame. DI cannot be used during DI. DI duration: base time of 360F + 1F for every health point below 210. Dragon Install duration drains during hit stop and super freeze. Recovery animation: 36F total, CH state throughout. Tension reduced to 0, negative penalty effect, tension gain lowered, Sol takes extra dizzy damage, and has a lower dizzy rating.

Same as regular Dragon Install except it costs 100% tension, lasts the entire round and drains your life to stay active but doesn't kill you. Active til the round ends and you don't gradually gain tension.

Requires 100% tension. After the super-freeze, will Install even if hit. Install mode is permanent. Tension gained is 20% original value. Health steadily decreases.

Sol's body becomes a hitbox but it's blockable and such, not much to say here besides don't do it.

Fun Fact: Against certain characters and under certain conditions, Sol has free IK setups, such as against ABA and Chipp.

IK activation: 76F, CH state till landing.



Strategy[edit]

Tactics

As a rushdown character, you excel in close range. Therefore your gameplan is to get in, and stay in, where your normals reach and do their job. You can also play footsies and poke with your farther range normals. You want to be on the offense and use your lows and other normals in combination with Wild Throw to keep the opponent guessing. 5D should be used sparingly, as it ends your momentum if blocked, or have 50% tension to RC. 5K allows you anti air reliably, as well as Volcanic Viper. Since you generally don't need meter for your combos, you can feel free to use it to make unsafe plays safe, or for silly mixups. You can play Sol in a way where you punish your opponent for doing things, or you can play him in a very offensive, rushdown based way. Hell, you could even play him totally randomly, it's not like a Sol playing that way didn't win a major tournament.

Sidewinder Loop

Once the opponent is launched you have options depending on where on screen you are and distance to the corner, and what character you're fighting. Most basic loop is forward jump jS>Sidewinder. Other variations include dash 2H>Neutral/Back/Forward Jump Sidewinder (note, not a TK SW), dash 2H>forward jump jH>Sidewinder, Empty Forward (neutral may work once on certain characters after reaching the corner) Jump Sidewinder. jP and jK>Sidewinder also work, but do less damage and prorate badly.


Bandit Revolver Loop

Though it does far less damage than Sidewinder Loop, Bandit Revolver is capable of building insane amounts of meter. Often it's used in conjunction with SW to finish combos and gain a little more Tension than usual. You need to Tiger Knee your Bandit Revolver in order to loop it, though the finishing blow is almost always a regular Bandit Revolver. Your main variations are going to be 5K(1), c.S, or 2H, with the opponent close to the ground, into a TK'd Bandit Revolver, with c.S against lighter, floatier characters, and 5K against mostly everybody else.
