Overview

Overview

Anji is an all-rounder character who specializes in hard reads. Anji's main mechanic is his autoguard, which allows him to block during portions of some of his normal attacks. Strong use of Autoguard normals allows Anji to punch through his opponents offense quite easily or bait them into frametraps. Helping this along is Anji's signature FuujinGGAC Anji Fuujin.pngGuard:

, a fast lariat that can be followed up with a number of options. Fuujin is useful for anything from pressure to mixups to neutral, making it an excellent move to rely on throughout a match. After Anji gets a hard knockdown, he can perform ShitsuGGAC Anji Shitsu.pngGuard:

to keep his opponent blocking while he runs up to perform a mixup or engage in pressure. Fuujin, Autoguard, Butterfly Oki, Late-Cancelling and 3S Cancelling (the latter two of which are explained below) come together to make Anji very tricky to deal with as a defender, and his extensive mixup game with a variety of lows, overheads, and throws makes his offensive reward quite high overall.

While Anji has good answers to everything his opponents can do, he has a notable vulnerability to moves with low-profile properties. While Anji can call out high and mid attacks with plenty of autoguard moves, his only autoguard low normals are 3K, 3S and 2H, all of which are committal. While Anji can often autoguard mids and highs on reaction, autoguarding lows tends to be done as a read on the opponent, making it inherently more risky to do. Failure to pick the right option will put Anji into a precarious situation, so familiarize yourself with his kit very well. Unaware opponents can be run over by him quite soundly, while experienced foes will force Anji to mix up which autoguard he uses with his other tools to greater effect. As well, while Fuujin is very useful, enemies who can stuff Fuujin consistently will force Anji to rely on other options for winning the match.

Anji's low execution, strong fundamentals and accessible toolkit make him a great pick for both new players and veterans. Players who enjoy hard reads, strong offense and solid defense will love Anji and his fanciful fighting style.

Anji Mito is an all-rounder character who revolves around countering his opponents offense with autoguard and the infamous Fuujin.
Pros Cons
  • Well-Rounded: Anji has a tool for almost every situation, and many of them are quite good. His wide variety of options lets him tackle most situations and matchups.
  • Fuujin: Has access to a partly invincible rekka starter that covers lots of horizontal space, and leads to damage and setplay on hit and mixups on block.
  • Potent Okizeme: When given a butterfly setup, Anji gets access to strong mixup and an unblockable setup with meter. Many of Anji's combos end with OnGGAC Anji On.pngGuard:

    , which drops opponents at the perfect spacing for butterfly oki.
  • Tricky Mixup Tools: A fast overhead in 3P, a standing low in 3K, Fuujin followups, and his oki setups give Anji great tools for opening up targets.
  • Autoguard: Several normals allow Anji to proceed unimpeded through abare attempts, and cancel his blocks into even stronger options.
  • Strong Aerial Mobility: Air stalls, On, and a unique super jump give Anji some good aerial tools.
  • High Guts Rating: Despite an average defense modifier, his guts level lets Anji survive longer than expected.
  • Fuujin isn't Foolproof: Spamming Fuujin can be turned around on Anji due to its vulnerability in its later frames. All the followups have weaknesses and counters, so a good opponent will take advantage of careless attacks.
  • Shut Down by Butterfly Oki Counters: Characters with means of disrespecting butterfly oki give Anji a hard time. He will have to rely on other options, like Meaty AttackHitting an opponent to cover the moment as they lose invincibility. The most common one is performing an attack early on okizeme to gain frame advantage and bait reversals.s, to keep his opponent blocking on wakeup.
  • Low Profile Vulnerability: Anji struggles with finding meaningful answers to low-profile moves. Opponents with access to strong low-profile tools like Sol can make it difficult for Anji to stop their approach against him.

Autoguard (also known as Guard Points or GP)

Several of Anji's moves have a property where they will automatically block moves that make contact, depending on the type of move: Low Autoguard will only block lows, and High Autoguard will block mid, high, and projectile attacks. He can cancel his move into one of four Autoguard Followups if he blocks something during autoguard, and these are very fast and in some cases are guaranteed to connect.

Unique Gatling Options

Anji's unique Gatling options and array of command normals give him freeform blockstrings and unique combo options.

  • Late Cancel - Anji's normals have a property in which they can all be cancelled at any point during their active and recovery frames into a normal or special move as long as they made contact, giving Anji the ability to turn any gatling string into a Frame Trap. Example link, turn on the CC for explanation
  • 3S Cancel - 3S is a particular normal that can be cancelled during frames 6-8 of its startup into 5S or 5H, allowing for very unique blockstrings and cancels that other characters cannot perform. Example Link
  • Wide Gatling Tree - Anji has a large number of command normals and gatlings, along with many ways to get into them. This along with 3S cancelling allows him to apply strong mix, frame trap, and crank guard bar really well.

A fast frame trap with early autoguard frames. Has autoguard on frame 1, meaning instant access to Anji's autoguard moves. Potentially unsafe to throw out if left uncancelled. Good to use in butterfly oki to check for reversal-happy opponents.

Has no true gatlings besides 3P which acts as a frame trap to discourage punishment when 6K is not cancelled. Can be late cancelled into 5K on hit, block or whiff during the final 10 frames. A 5F gap on block between 6K and 5K provides another frame trap discourage mashing.

  • FRC or RC can be used to further make 6K safe with FRC leading to good combos or the ability to continue your pressure.

An extremely far poke covering a large portion of the screen in front of Anji.

  • Can catch people jumping in or out, trying to approach, trying to poke, and potentially airdashing while still having a good autoguard just in case.
    • Unfortunately, 6S's hitbox is deceptive and only hits on the ends of the fans. This makes using 6S up close a risky option.
  • Has many gatling options.

Note: Anji does not have a f.S. 5S will activate at any range. However, 5S will automatically gatling into 6S if S is pressed again on contact.

j.S is a pretty good move for most aerial scenarios.

  • Hits a good bit in front of Anji.
  • Great for SJC combos.
  • Can be used as an air-to-air or as a jump-in.
  • Frames 3-4 of start-up are affected by a unique bug with the following properties:
    • When done low enough to the ground, these frames will gain high autoguard.
    • Even when not done low to the ground, Anji will still get hit normally during those frames, but the subsequent on hit effects will treat Anji as if he blocked the attack.
    • The primary effect of being hit at a higher height is that Anji no longer is in counter hit state from frames 3-4, but it also leads to strange interactions such as:
      • No meter gain on Gold Burst.
      • No burst refill on Blue Burst.
      • No level up from Johnny's coin.
      • No follow-up animation from cinematic supers and instant kills.

Gatling Options: j.P, j.H, j.D

A slow moving projectile that serves as one of Anji's most important specials. Upon input, Anji sends out a butterfly at about leg height. If it comes in contact with the opponent or a projectile, the butterfly transforms into a hawk before leaping into the sky and falling to the ground. The hawk projectile hits twice on the way down, both of them as Mids.

Shitsu has two purposes. The first is in neutral as a high committal zoning option for a grounded approach. While the projectile is slow, if enemies interact with it at all then they will have to deal with the hawk followup. While not amazing, using Shitsu to gain space can be a decent way for Anji to make his way in against opponents who like to stay on the ground.

Shitsu's second purpose, and its more important one, is in okizeme. Upon getting hard knockdown on his opponent, Anji can throw out Shitsu and guarantee a 50/50 mixup attempt. Many of Anji's single-hit mixup moves, like 3P or 3K, can be thrown out inbetween the butterfly hitting the opponent and the hawk falling onto them, which will allow a full combo with good timing. Shitsu forms the backbone of Anji's mixup game and is an extremely important move to utilize nearly every chance you can get.

Shitsu has a few weaknesses. Not only is it slow, but the projectile also disappears if Anji is hit. Thus, Anji players will have to correctly space and time their butterfly oki to the best of their ability to avoid a reversal attempt. 6K can help with checking for reversal attempts in butterfly oki.

  • Disappears if it travels the max distance before touching something.
  • Can be used as a risky, but powerful, pressure reset in the middle of blockstrings.

Additional Frame Data: Projectile disappears immediately if Anji gets hit. Falling butterfly has Chip damage x2. Falling butterfly: Startup of 1F after original projectile hits or is blocked, or 20F after nullifying a projectile.

236H 46 Mid 20 3 27 -16 1~12F Strike 3

Anji's most important tool and arguably the defining feature of his kit. A fast, forward-leaning and high-damage dashpunch that helps Anji control lots of horizontal space. Fuujin comes in two variants, each with their own uses.


S Fuujin is Anjis's main way to get into his Fuujin followups in pressure. This variant also has important use in Anji's corner combos as an extension off of 2D. Otherwise, the H variant is superior in every way.

  • Used in combos especially for 236S > FB Rin extensions.

Additional Frame Data: Slides opponent on air hit (untechable for 40F, slide for 20F). Can cancel into followup attacks 27F onwards.


H Fuujin is a very powerful move to utilize in neutral. Strike invul for the first 12 frames allows Anji to go through some projectiles and moves, but can be extremely risky as the invul ends before the move is active. Highly vulnerable to sweeps.

Following up with Rin allows Anji to catch some counterpoke attempts. It is also very useful for whiff punishing, blowing through projectiles, and comboing into high-damage routes. Much like his other tools, overusing H Fuujin is a surefire way to get punished, so weave it in with Anji's other approach options.

  • Launch on hit allows for most of his routes, typically using 236H > FB Rin.

Additional Frame Data: Initial prorate 80%. Wallbounces opponent on hit (untechable for 38F). On CH untechable for 120F. Can cancel into followup attacks 32F onwards.

The somewhat safe/pressure reset option out of Fuujin. Anji leaps into the air and throws down several fans in a cone below him. Can be airdashed out of, which allows Anji to back off or press forward depending on the situation.

This move is the best option for establishing a safe gameplan as Anji. Opponents will likely be too stunned to move the first few times you use it out of Fuujin, which can net a full pressure reset. Don't become overly reliant on it, however. The entire cast can punish Anji for using it by anti-airing or air-to-airing his ascent. Using the FRC point makes the move completely safe, which is useful for baiting reversal attempts.

Ichishiki can help you figure out the blocking habits of your opponents if you use it wisely. Make sure to mix it in with the other followups to keep your offense fresh.

Additional Frame Data: Anji is airborne 4F onwards. FRC timing 6~8F. Auto Jump Install. Listed Frame Adv is for a standing opponent in the corner (Tested on Sol).

- - - - 24+6 after landing - 7~24F Lower Body -

The throw/anti-low option out of Fuujin. Anji leaps a great distance forwards before landing in neutral. Often puts Anji at just the right space for a throw, which can lead into solid butterfly oki. Anji can potentially cross up depending on spacing.

This move is great for getting into your opponents head. The threat of a throw or crossup makes this move very useful in butterfly oki mixups or even general Fuujin pressure. The leap going over lows allows Anji to punish opponents who are trying to fuzzy low his other followups.

The move's biggest downside is that it puts Anji in counterhit state until he lands. Be careful with using this move, but don't be afraid to use it if you want to wear on the opponent's mental stack.

Additional Frame Data: Can pass through opponent 7~24F.

30 Low 10 6 27 -19 - 3

The low/frametrap option out of Fuujin. Anji sweeps his fan outwards, knocking the opponent off their feet. Useful in combos for guaranteeing hard knockdown and forms one half of Fuujin's high/low mixup. If delayed, Nagiha acts as a nasty frametrap which can be continued into a combo with meter.

Nagiha's FRC is also one of Anji's most useful tools for maintaining pressure, as using it makes Nagiha fully safe. You can net a good pressure reset, throw attempt, or even a butterfly oki attempt if your opponent is conditioned to sit still. You can even combo off of Nagiha's FRC for decently high damage and meter gain. Overall, Nagiha's FRC is one of Anji's best FRC points, and one of his most important for new players to learn.

Additional Frame Data: Floats opponent on ground hit (untechable for 35F). FRC timing 23~25F.

The overhead/autoguard option out of Fuujin. Anji opens his fans and swings them downward in a shoulder check. Level 6 on block and the second half of Fuujin's high/low mixup. Unfortunately, the move is slow enough that actually getting your opponent to take the hit can be difficult. Useful for ending Fuujin pressure if you have no meter, but can be beaten on reaction with lows and slashbacked to be made unsafe. Delaying Rin gives it some frametrap potential. Also useful as a combo ender.

Rin has the notable feature of having tons of autoguard frames. Using this move in neutral can be a good way to push through your opponents pokes and punish them with an autoguard follow-up. The move is also fully throw invulnerable, so opponents need to know exactly how to beat the move in order to push back against Rin.

Like all of Fuujin's followups, Rin must be used considerately. The risk/reward for using the move is very high, but conditioning opponents into sitting still long enough to hit them can be a difficult task. If you can land the hit however, there's nothing quite like a Rin counterhit to brighten up your day.

Additional Frame Data: Slams down and knocks down opponent on hit. Groundbounces on CH (untechable for 90F). Listed Frame Adv is when opponent blocks standing (tested on Sol). Startup to hit a crouching opponent is 31F. Blockstun 21F.

One of Anji's main combo enders. Anji leaps into the air before grabbing his opponent, switching sides, and dropping them to the floor with a lightning strike. Despite the sideswitch, many of Anji's corner combos end with the opponent bouncing out of the corner before On catches them and forces them back into it.

The high damage of On makes it a great way to end combos, even ones with high proration. On's best feature is that it gives great spacing for butterfly oki, allowing Anji to easily time a Shitsu followup and begin a mixup attempt. On can also catch opponents trying to jump out of Anji's pressure, which can make for a great callout.

Additional Frame Data: Anji is airborne from 9F onwards. Knocks down opponent on hit (untechable for 120F). FRC timing 11~13F.

An upgraded version of Shitsu with far better properties. Not only is the projectile now much faster, it also travels nearly fullscreen and can beat certain projectiles. The hawk followup now also hits high, which can lead to unblockable setups with a properly timed 2S.

  • Has more recovery, more range, and travels faster compared to normal Shitsu.
  • The increased range and speed make it a situationally useful move to control space.

Additional Frame Data: The falling part has Chip Damage x2. Projectile disappears instantly if Anji gets hit. Goes through other projectiles. Falling butterfly startup is 1F after hit or blocked, or 20F after nullifying a projectile.

Anji's main use of meter. An important piece of combo filler, as it ground bounces, OTGs, and leads into H Fuujin for further followups. Many of Anji's corner and midscreen combos rely on FB Rin to be accessible in order to perform them, so try and keep at least 25% meter if you can help it.

  • Effectively fully throw invul since they will likely still be in block stun from the Fuujin before the followup.
  • Can be used for mix ups but the FB flash will likely give away what you're doing to an opponent who knows Anji's options.

Additional Frame Data: Ground bounces opponent on hit (untechable for 60F). Listed Frame Adv is for standing block (tested on Sol). Startup is 25F to hit a crouching opponent (tested on Sol).

Like the normal version, it is used as a response to an anti-air autoguard.

  • Trades meter build for damage and for it to be safe on block since you can air dash out.

Additional Frame Data: 1st-7th hits float opponent. 2nd-7th hits have hitstop 5F. 8th hit slams down opponent and fully untechable. Anji is in CH state until landing. FB Kou can only be used during the hitstop of an autoguarded attack.

Like normal On, but with much faster startup and much higher vertical reach. Situationally useful when your opponent likes to stall on the top of the screen or as a callout against carless airdashing.

  • Its start up makes it hard to combo into compared to normal On. Not a viable alternative to normal On as a combo ender.
  • FRC works similar to normal On, but at 50 tension this can be difficult to justify.

Additional Frame Data: Knocks down opponent on hit (untechable for 120F). Anji is in crouching state during landing recovery. FRC timing 19~20F. Anji can move before landing on hit or FRC.

Anji pulls out a large fan, before spinning it multiple times and closing it on the opponent and forcing hard knockdown. A great way to squeeze out a little bit more damage at the end of a combo, as it works after On.

  • Has some slight invincibility but not enough to make using it as a reversal worthwhile. Can result in weird interactions, especially around command grabs.
  • FRC allows you to combo out of it for some more damage.
  • If you are hit after the very start the move will still come out but you can move and follow up for free.

Additional Frame Data: Anji is in CH state during move. Dizzy modifier x0. Can pass through projectiles. FRC timing 66~70F. Projectile guranteed to activate after 10F. Giant fan will activate on 53F if the 11th hit hits (not blocked).

A powered-up version of Kai. Anji leaps midscreen and performs a fast, multi-hit stomp on his way down. This super is somewhat mediocre, as Anji has better uses for meter and better ways to move about the screen. It can at least be an unconventional way to get out of the corner.

  • It's unreactable after the super flash, meaning the opponent would already have to be blocking or invincible before it starts, but it takes a while for the flash to start.
  • Can do some ambiguous cross ups but the steep meter cost makes it not worthwhile.
  • Has some invincibility, but other moves are more useful for that.

Additional Frame Data: Opponent cannot input anything from after super flash until the 3rd active frame. Listed Frame Adv is for standing block (tested on Sol). For the follow up strikes after the knockdown (1st hit), if the opponent was ground bounced, the spin will hit them in the air, else they'll take the hits on the ground.

An unburstable, high-damage followup from an autoguard. Can make Anji very threatening in neutral, as this super does a surprisingly high amount of average damage thanks to the near guarantee it will be a counterhit. Plus, it looks really cool!

  • Guaranteed to connect after the first hit.
  • Can FRC before the last hit to get some extra damage, though if it's not going to kill, taking the knockdown would be better in most cases.
  • Can be special cancelled into if an attack with autoguard connects provided autoguard itself was triggered.

Additional Frame Data: 1st-3rd hits stagger opponent on hit (max 65F). Opponent's inputs are frozen until the 2nd active frame of the 1st hit. Anji is in CH state during move. Dizzy modifier x1.5. FRC timing 63~65F.
