Overview
Overview



Lore:One of the Eternals—they who stand astride the skies and across the path of any would-be calamity. Seox's power is unrivaled, for he bears the mark of destiny. His emotional instability is just part of his mask—his love is hidden deeper. He seeks to reach beyond the sky, where the one he holds dear travels.
Playstyle
GBVS Seox Icon.png Seox ... is an agile rush-down fighter, using a deadly arsenal of swift attacks and afterimages to break his opponent's defenses with an onslaught of mix-ups.
Pros Cons
  • Strong Pressure: Moves such as his 5U and the rekka followup, Snake Bite give Seox a lot of advantagous frames to keep up and even loop his pressure.
  • High Mobility: Seox has many options to close the gap on the opponent with his Empty Hand wall jump, 5U teleport, and his Thunderflash parry which he can hold to dash towards or jump at the opponent.
  • Low Damage: Having Six Claw Execution as his main combo tool can restrict a lot of combo routing especially as it is his main pressure tool as well.

On Hit Invuln
236L 400 Mid 13・19 - - -14 -10 -
236M 600 Mid 21 - - -10 -6 -
236H 800 Mid 16・19・22・25 - - -4 0 -

Seox's main special move, a rekka that leads into different follow-ups. Each starter can turn into a myriad of frame traps and pressure resets and is his main pressure and combo tool. Think carefully about when you should spend the EX version.


236L
  • Hits twice with a blue trail.

Seox's main combo ender and pressure extender. Combos from pretty much anything. Leads to the 6M follow-up on crouching opponents, which gives Seox more combo options.


236M
  • Hits once with a red trail.

Situational combo extender and frametrap tool. Combos from autocombo on crouching opponents and c.H always. Always combos into the 6M follow-up.


236H
  • Yellow effect makes it easy to distinguish.

Combos from anything and always leads to the 6M follow-up for good damage. Be careful using this as you lose Seox's main combo and pressure tool.

On Hit Invuln

Archdemon Kick (6X)
  • L version keeps opponent grounded. Blue trail.
  • M version launches on hit. Red trail.
  • Cancels into any other follow-up.

Seox's rekka extender. The M version always combos from 236M and 236H, but only combos from 236L on crouching opponents.


Wolf's Howl (4X)
  • L version combos from anything.
  • M version combos from M Archdemon kick.
  • M version wallbounces on counterhit.

A thrusting attack that sends the opponent flying. L version is your standard ground combo ender. M version works as a frametrap and another potential crouch confirm point.


Snake Bite (8X)
  • L version has a blue trail and is a little faster. Links into c.L.
  • M version has a red trail and links into c.M.

Seox's pressure reset option from Six-Claw Execution. Always plus on block and ground bounces from 236H allowing for extended combos. Gives a closer knockdown than M Wolf's Howl on opponents launched from M Archdemon Kick at the cost of damage.


Shadow Trace (4U/6U)
  • Command dash, can phase through opponents.

A movement option off of Six-Claw Execution. Seox can dash forward or backward based on input. The backdash version is useful for gainibg space and is generally quite safe. The forward version is great for sneaking in a pressure reset on an opponent respecting a potential frame trap or looking for Snake Bite.

623L 1000 - 4 - - -8 KD -
623M 1000 - 4 - - -8 KD -
623H 1000 - 1 - - -8 HKD -

Seox goes into a counter stance. All strikes can be parried and counterattack against. If you hold the button while parrying an attack, Seox will reposition himself depending on the version.


623L/623M
  • L version moves forward if held.
  • M version moves up if held.

Not instant but useful to get around predictable things in neutral like fireballs.


623H
  • Moves forward if held.
  • Active from frame 1, but shorter active time than non-EX versions.

Seox's counter reversal. Vulnerable to throws but beats safejumps and has the added benefit of also being a movement tool.

j.214H 1200 All 9 - - - - -

214L
  • Fires a projectile.

Hard to zone with as the projectile moves downwards. Useful as a meaty after a tech flipout or as a way to secure a certain part of the screen.


214M
  • Claw dive.

Seox's best meterless combo out of AA 2H.


214H
  • Two-hit projectile like 214L.
  • Combo extender from c.H.

Plus on block and allows for combo and pressure extensions.


j.214L
  • Claw strike, retains momentum.

j.214M
  • Claw strike, bounces back on hit/block.
  • Retains air options upon connect.

214H
  • Air fireball.

Just as useful as the ground version. Using it in combos is more difficult but it's a lot more applicable in neutral.

[2]8M 1000 All 36 - - -4 ~ +3 KD -
[2]8H 1000 All 32 - - -4 ~ +2 HKD -

Seox's walldive. Too slow to use in combos consistently but great as an anti-fireball tool.


[2]8L
  • Dives at a sharp, downwards angle.

Mostly useful as a fakeout to make your opponent whiff an AA.


[2]8M
  • Dives and travels about halfscreen.

This is the best non-EX version to go over fireballs in neutral, but its speed and input makes this difficult to do on reaction.


[2]8H
  • Dives to opponent.
  • Can be held.

Can lead to a combo if it counterhits but is quite spacing-dependant.
