Overview

Overview

Meant to be the beginner-friendly character of the roster, Sol Badguy is the antithesis of Guilty Gear 2. As the strongest possible combatant, he bulldozes through enemies with very little effort and makes massive waves wherever he goes during a battle. Compared to much of the roster, he's almost unstoppable with enough burst damage to wipe out units that threaten his game-plan.


However, this doesn't mean he's without fault. To balance out his extreme strength, Sol's tribe, Junkyard, is almost undoubtedly the worst in the game. Possessing a good selection of Elites, it can be versatile, but often loses a battle of numbers due to how expensive they can be. As well, with his only Mobile-type Servant being a mediocre Elite, the only way Sol has to defeat Armored Servants is with his own Armored Servants or himself.


While Sol can be a great choice for those not wanting to worry about commanding their troops, to truly tap into Sol's potential one must learn the fundamental strategies of using ones units to maintain map vision and control of Ghosts. Vision will help Sol know where he can be most impactful. Control of Ghosts will get Sol's Mana economy going while also denying Mana for the opponent.

Sol's Mana economy is important for two reasons. The first reason is so Sol can purchase Crimson Jacket and Dragon Install which stand out as good abilities. These two abilities make Sol much more powerful than he would be otherwise. The second reason Sol's Mana economy is important is unlocking Sol's elite as they are strong enough to fight on their own or enable an assault on the opponents Masterghost.
Playstyle
Sol Badguy is a powerful Master with strong PvP and fast PvE. Sol is supported by weak Basic Servants which he needs for his Mana and Gear economies. Mana for Elite Units and Gears for Sol's Dragon Install, both of which are very powerful.
Pros Cons
  • Overwhelming: At one point, Sol had seven different Pros explaining his dominance in Servant ClearWhen a Master takes time to clear massive swathes of enemy Servants, often by abusing strong single-hitting attacks with wide reach., Master-to-Master combat, damage output, pressure, and his unique efficiency in all of these areas. He is powerful, incredibly hard to stop, and all-around overwhelming.
  • Good Elite Units: Sol possesses Elite units that are impactful on the battle and cost effective. These being The Queen, Fire Wheel, and Engulfer.
  • Junkyard: Sol's tribe, Junkyard, is below par. It's more expensive than its competition and has little Servant variety outside of its Elites, but doesn't gain much in return for this downside. As a result, he has to push harder to take and maintain Ghosts than he might want as to not fall behind on Mana.
  • Hands-on: Junkyard is somewhat inoperable without Sol present to get them across the finish line. Their high cost and low numbers means they fall flat in skirmishes.

Lock-off Attacks

Sol will mostly use F8X or lock on attacks in neutral so much of his lock off attacks are useless or combo fodder. There are a few rare situations you can land lock off attacks against hard to pin down foes so knowing how to get to a juggle or knockdown can have some utility.

F5X

Damage Guard DamageHow much this attack degrades your enemy's Guard. If an attack is Instant, it will always destroy the enemy's Guard. OTGThe act of hitting the opponent when they are knocked down. Short for "off the ground" or "on the ground." Down AttackAn attack that makes the opponent unable to tech. MC WindowModern Cancel Window; if it's Strict, an attack can only be cancelled exactly when it hits, while Lenient is on hit or during recovery after hitting. Step WindowStep Cancel Window; if it's Strict, an attack can only be step cancelled exactly when it hits, while Lenient is on hit or during recovery after hitting.
22 Low No No Lenient Strict

In odd cases that the opponent comes in at angles that lock on attacks can't cover and in those cases you might be able to land a lock off attack. Generally best go to into F5XYY if landed on a grounded opponent.

Otherwise used often as combo fodder.

150 (84) Unblockable (Medium) Yes Yes (No) Lenient None

A high damage AoE attack with good knockdown. One of Sol's more useful free attacks. Use this to deal with large groups of units allowing you to focus on whoever is left standing as the first group wakes up from knockdown.

Can absolutely melt enemy units with Super-Armor like Dr Paradigm's Elite Armor (Bonebitter) and Izuna's Melee (Kappa) during their counter.

F5XXXY

60 Medium No No Lenient Jump

Not very useful, less damage and knockback than F5XXXX and even then there are better choices for both damage and knockback all over Sol's moveset.

Step WindowStep Cancel Window; if it's Strict, an attack can only be step cancelled exactly when it hits, while Lenient is on hit or during recovery after hitting.
37 Medium No No Lenient Lenient

Causes an small juggle that can lead to combos. A good thing to go into if you caught an enemy Master with F5X.

If you Modern Cancel this move you have time to go into 2X loops.

If you don't want to spend meter you should lock on as you are doing this attack so you can go into 5XX, jump cancel, air combo but you will need to delay a bit before you do the 5XX otherwise you will get FXYYX which ends you combo in a hard knockback and less damage.

F5XXYY

Damage Guard DamageHow much this attack degrades your enemy's Guard. If an attack is Instant, it will always destroy the enemy's Guard. OTGThe act of hitting the opponent when they are knocked down.

22 Medium No No Lenient No

Goes from the small juggle to a small knockback that can be quickly teched. Not used often but can be a way to put the opponent in a tech chase scenario from certain combos.

60 Medium No No Lenient No

Not much reason to use this move. Leads to a far knockback but often whiffs on juggled opponents.

Lock-on Attacks

5X

37 Low No No Lenient No

Good range for how fast it comes out. Can be sidestepped but also can whiff cancel into 4Y or 6Y to catch sidesteps. One of Sol's most common combo starters.

5XX

60 Medium No No Lenient Lenient

If blocked, this normal is good to step cancel or modern cancel as 5XXX can be sidestepped and punished.

When targeting a single Servant it is good to stagger 5XX twice in a row to avoid knockdown. A third repetition will usually knock down so continue the third rep with LXXX to continue in various ways to get into 2X loops for damage or jump cancel the 5XXX into a simple air combo in case you need to reposition.

5XXX

57 Medium No No Lenient Lenient

Is useful for catching an enemy trying to sidestep.

45 High No No Lenient None

A good move to guard break the enemy Master with.

Not a true blockstring. Looks alot like 5XX though so if you conditioned the opponent to block then they are in trouble. There are also ways to make 5X2X a true blockstring by using certain items, Servants attacks, Allies, Etc...

Looks almost exactly like j8X but recovers faster and does 2/3 as much damage. Possibly useful if you want to go into a tech chase situation off the ground bounce without using Modern Cancel.

? Low Yes ? Lenient No

Helm Breaker like attack with good damage but long recovery. Usually used as a combo ender for air combos due to ground bounce and high damage.

Can only tech chase off the air combo ground bounce if you modern cancel on hit.

If the opponent is grounded you need to modern cancel this on hit and block due to it's otherwise long recovery leaving you either punishable or at disadvantage.

101 (45, 56) Medium, High No No Strict (1st hit), Lenient (2nd hit) None

Solid way to end combos or close the distance on enemies.

The first hit launches and the second hit spikes airborne opponents into a knockdown so you have to modern cancel the first hit if you want to extend into a combo. If only the second hit lands on an opponent then they remain grounded and with perfect spacing you can continue into a combo with Lock-on 5X. Perfect spacing is hard to guarantee so you may also consider using Modern Cancel but even if you don't then having Sol's Lock-on 5X blocked can be the beginning of guard break pressure.

Modern Canceling this move can also lead so juggle combos on any of it's hits.

The effect this Install has is reliant on the number of Gears Sol has built up over the course of the fight (max gears = 100). The two basic Servants Drill and Blade build gears when they use their basic attacks.

If you are at 50 gears or higher Sol will rub his sword and turn it into a cooler looking sword that lets everything do more damage. If you are at 100 gears Sol will visually transform and the properties of many of his attacks change (more hits, more damage, bigger area of effect, etc...).

They key thing to remember is that you can get better DPS out of the 50 Gear Install while you get better AoE and Hitboxes out of 100 Gear Install so both have their uses. Any lower than 50 and the Install isn't worth it.

The part of the activation of the 100 Gear Install in the photo has a hitbox and can knockdown. The other Activations do not have this hitbox.
