Even though it seems Sol's options at round start are much more powerful. The threat of Anji's autoguard extremely limits your openers due to if you hit autoguard it'll count as a whiff and you'll be left susceptible for a optimal punish by Anji. Anji's also has faster button options that hit on round start like 2K.

have an autoguard mechanic that makes moves whiff on contact. Moves like Sol's f.S can be optimally punished if it is caught in it so your best option on round start is to either to backdash or block as you can easily react to Suigetsu No Hakobi if it is thrown out and punish with Wild ThrowGGST Sol Badguy 623K-1.pngGuard:

A smart Anji will know this and most likely try to backdash to start his defensive gameplan. You can safely close the distance with Bandit RevolverGGST Sol Badguy 236K.pngGuard:

if you react to this. Overall with this in mind, you should try to react to Anji's round start rather than start a offensive string.

Anji tends to want to be more defensive until he can get in safely as he doesn't really have good pokes. Again, watch out for Suigetsu No HakobiGGST Anji Mito 236K 1.pngGuard:

Don't underestimate 2S. It's one of your best pokes that can be used to close the gap.

Axl Low

Unfavorable


As Sol only really excels at the closest distance possible Axl can effectively keep him at a safe distance .

  • All of Axl's main buttons are significantly larger than Sol's.
  • Most of the time the pushback and recovery on those buttons can keep Sol at bay.
  • Sol's only real option of getting in is Night Raid VortexGGST Sol Badguy 214S 1.pngGuard:

    Advantage:

    but this is extremely unsafe on block (-17). You can Roman Cancel this to make it safe but it is difficult to get bar when Sol is constantly on defense.
  • Counterplay: Sol's buttons can directly counter some of Axl's buttons if timed correctly. Example, Sol's 6H beats Axl's 2H even at long distance.
  • When Sol does get in however, There is little Axl can do to recover.
  • 5K ain't gonna reach that guy :(

    from further than 5K (it is also safer on whiff if you still whiff it due to the spacing).
  • You can dash block against Mega Fist (Forward) on reaction to get a better spacing for your punish, though it is quite hard.

  • 5H/6S > Gun Flame (Feint), 6H will trade with F.D.B., without Gun Flame (Feint) it'll beat it clean (this is safer than Night Raid Vortex since it can't be punished with Potemkin BusterGGST Potemkin Potemkin Buster.pngGuard:

    on reaction; you might get hit but you'll be taking some damage in exchange for getting out of his very powerful offense. Don’t do this in the corner or if the damage would kill you, of course.
  • Garuda Impact is 0 to slightly minus when air blocked. If he does it outside of your wake-up, upback when you see it (if you upback early enough you'll just get out, if you air block it you’re at advantage).
  • If you DP on wake-up and they Garuda Impact, you might get a clash. Because of this, you should OS something behind your DP on wake-up (or if you react to Garuda Impact while you do the DP motion), like Faultless Defense or a fast move (f.S, 6H...).
  • Using Faultless Defense against Garuda Impact might be a good idea since its chip damage is no joke.

Surviving on wake-up


  • Delay backdash should beat his layer 1 mix-up (meaty or command throw) when he doesn’t have enough time to do Garuda Impact.

    into "meaty" is real okizeme only if the Hammer Fall Break is timed perfectly, otherwise you should only be at a low frame disadvantage if he comes point blank, so you may try to challenge with 5K or jump back.
