The grappler of Guilty Gear, named after the great Russian warship, The Potemkin. Pot essentially is a walking tank, dealing damage of ridiculous proportions whenever he gets in with his command throw of terrifying power: The Potemkin Buster.
Potemkin of course works best directly in the opponent's face, but still has some unique tools for dealing with situations outside of grab range. He has large hitboxes, good range, moves with super armor, and a variety of powerful throws at his disposal. Perhaps more than any other character, Pot is capable of punishing on good reads very well. He has the best ground throw range in the game without Pot Buster alone, along with two anti-air grabs, an aerial command throw and the best air throw range in the game to boot. From far out, he has a full screen unblockable that hits the floor, a projectile reflecting move, and plenty of other tricks. Though he may have trouble against good zoning and projectiles galore, big damage is Pot's game, he just needs to get close enough to really instill the fear.
|Potemkin is a slow behemoth who makes life hell with large normals, very high damage, and one of the best command grabs in the game.|

No Air Dash
Your quickest jab, with a pretty good hitbox, capable of hitting crouching, standing, or even airborne opponents (sometimes). Chain into 5K on the ground, or c.S if they're in the air. If they block, you can chain as normal, or go right into a Potemkin Buster if they're not expecting it.
Untechable for 13F.
Tied with 2K for Potemkin's quickest low. 5k is Potemkin's best move for catching backdashes, with a whopping 9 active frames. Although 2K has more range, 5K can be canceled into c.S or 2S to keep your combo or blockstring going. Good to use after a landing from a jump-in (alternate with 6k for throw invul overheads).
Initial prorate 90%.
Mostly used as combo filler, although it can be used as situational anti-air. Deep jump-in combos should be followed up with this or 2s when possible for better damage. Whiff 5S close as they wake up for a not-so-obvious Potemkin buster/Heat Knuckle.
Traffic controller Potemkin says, "STOP!". The perfect move for stopping IADs and advancing opponents. Hits at an upward angle, so you can throw it out early to stop your opponent from going airborne. If you hit at range, cancel into (2s) Heat Knuckle, or Heavenly Potemkin Buster if you've got tension to spare/it'll win the round. A decent move for cancelling into Slide Head for gimmicks but don't get carried away with them.
Works like f.S, but for opponents that'll stay grounded or very low in the air (I-no, Order Sol, Jam to an extent) . One of Potemkin's best pokes: fantastic range, big guard bar bump, plenty of blockstun. Cancel into Hammerfall > Break for better advantage on block or just to gain ground, or cancel into Sliding Head for cheap (but very punishable) mixup. At distances where nothing else is possible, 5H air counterhit, wait, 5H works. 5H counterhit leads to slidehead, Hammerfall break, follow up combo. 5H is also the only move besides 6P/ 2H that leads to Giganter super vs airborne opponents.
A great anti-air. Potemkin's hurtbox is low to the ground, and he has some upper body invulnerability during start up and even more through the activate frames. You can use this as a ghetto reversal vs airborne opponents if their move isn't 100% meaty (such as vs. late IADing opponents trying to bait throws). Hitbox doesn't extend much further than his hands, but that's plenty.
- 6P > Heat Knuckle (always works on hit vs AA)
- CH 6P, 2S > Heat Knuckle (easy CH combo)
- 6P > jc.P > j.K > jc.Air Potemkin Buster
- CH 6P, falling j.H |> c.S > Heat Knuckle
- CH 6P, falling j.H |> 6P > Giganter > Bullet...
Upper body invincible 1-4F. Above knees invincible 5-14F. Floats opponent on CH (untechable for 50F). Initial prorate 90%.
An 18 frame overhead with short range. It has special throw invulnerable properties (frame data unknown, not listed in the mook). Jump-cancellable on hit/block (JC on block for pressure, on hit for burst baits, or hammerfall through the burst). Although one of Potemkin's hardest combos due to charging, 6k->Hammerfall combos on crouching and baits bursts automatically. It also nets you insane damage, and in the corner the hammerfall can be FRC'd into Giganter. If you hit with it, cancel to 2D. Against faust, you can do Heat Knuckle/Heavenly Potemkin Buster as Tension allows after 2D. Once the opponent becomes used to the 6K animation, Slide head can be substituted in place (hits low!) as they have similar animations, for a dirty 50/50.
Initial prorate 85%. Throw invincible 1~15F.
THE LEGENDARY LEVEL 6 ATTACK. Potemkin's longest-ranged normal, hitting from nearly 2/3 of the screen away. Great for tagging backdashes or just landing an unexpected hit at range. Ridiculous on counter hit, as the CH holds them in place momentarily, allowing followups such as Giganter. Cancel into Slidehead for an unblockable and sometimes inescapable knockdown (the following characters cannot escape without IB/SB: ABA, Axl, Faust, Johnny, Potemkin, Robo-Ky, Slayer, Testament, and Venom). Once your opponent catches onto 6H > Slidehead and is jumpy, 6H > Hammerfall break (immediately charge HF after inputting 6H for best results) anti-air can work as well. Can be FRC'd right before it becomes active (frames 20-21, active on 24). An odd gatling is 5P > 6H. 5P > 6H FRC Pot buster for shenanigans, or let it rip to catch backdashers.
50% initial prorate. Wall bounce opponent on hit (untechable for 28F). Blockstun 23F. Dizzy modifier x0.75. FRC timing 20-21F.
Standing dust, with a remarkably large hitbox. Interesting gatlings into it include 2H > 5D (combos LOL, sets up a nice Heavenly Potemkin Buster reset), and 2S > 5D (to get them in range for the 5D when they may be out, 5d can also tag their escape). 5D Anti-Air CH can be followed up (situationally) for a combo into Heat Knuckle/HPB.
Potemkin is in CH state during move's duration.
While slower than 5P, it has situational use such as killing Eddie's shadow from far away, or using it for Hammerfall break pressure (experiment for other uses). It also starts his OTG combo, 2P > 5P > 5P (5p)
Initial prorate 80%.
Comes out as fast as 5K, but has better range. It cancels into any S attack, but only c.S and f.S will actually combo. If you're at max range, it's probably better to cancel into 2D for knockdown.
Initial prorate 90%.
One of Potemkin's best normal attacks in terms of overall usefulness. Good range, good hitbox, staggers on counter-hit (max of 43 frames), but most importantly, it has a vacuum effect that pulls the enemy towards you on hit or block. This makes it useful in combos and blockstrings, so you'll end up using this move a lot.
Pulls in opponent on hit or block. Pulls in and staggers opponent on ground CH (max 43F).
A vicious uppercut that reaches ridiculously high. Thanks to its high startup you'll have to throw it out relatively early, so make sure you know it'll connect before committing to it. Reaches further back than most anti-airs, allowing you to tag crossup attempts in addition to the normal anti-air benefits. Can be FRC'd on the last frame of startup and first two active frames (13-15), allowing for an air combo followup, or just making it safe if blocked.
If you get a normal hit on an airborne opponent, you can cancel into Heat Knuckle if they're low enough. Otherwise your only direct followup is a Heavenly Potemkin Buster. If they're on the ground, you can always cancel to Heat Knuckle. On counter-hit, your opponent can't tech until they've hit the ground, no matter how high they were when you hit. This gives you plenty of time to think of all the ways you can absolutely destroy your opponent - even relatively simple combos off of CH 2H can do 50% or more.
Floats opponent on hit (untechable for 30F). Dizzy modifier x1.25. FRC timing 13-15F.
A great low with fantastic range. Use it to end ground combos, tag your opponent on wakeup, or just keep them guessing at range. Special cancellable, but there isn't much it combos into (although 2D > Heat Knuckle does work on Faust). Consider canceling into Hammerfall Break to get that much closer to the opponent after a knockdown instead.
Forced prorate 80%.
J.P is important for gaining some height in Pot's air combos. Since j.S knocks down and combos out of. Beyond that, this does have some interesting uses in mixup: if you connect with a high j.S, you can cancel into a j.P, then land and do a Potemkin Buster. The j.P has low hit stun, letting you connect with the Buster almost immediately.
Has a decent hitbox, but you'll mostly just be using this because it's jump cancellable. J.K also crosses up, giving Potemkin a great mixup after heat knuckle connects. Heat knuckle, jump forward, double jump at an ambiguous timing, then j.k. Depending on when you double jumped, you may or may not cross over.
Probably Potemkin's best air move, with a nice, tall hitbox. Ground bounce on counter hit gives you plenty of options to follow up, or cancel into j.P on regular hit for a tick throw once you land. It's also great as okizeme - throw it out before you land, ideally catching the first few frames of their recovery. Landing cancels your own recovery, giving you freedom to punish their response (or just combo if they happened to eat it).
Ground bounces opponent fully untechable on ground CH. Slams down opponent on air hit (untechable for 25F). Ground bounces opponent on air CH (untechable for 60F).
Good for air-to-air damage or as a crossup attack, but doesn't offer a lot of follow-ups. If you time it right, you can do j.S > j.H, and land, c.S > Heat Knuckle.
After a short startup, Potemkin drops rapidly to the ground. If you catch an airborne opponent with it, they'll plummet to earth with you. Combo after j.S for a knockdown into whatever oki you please. Once you land you're forced crouching for eight frames until recovery completes. You can whiff it in front of the opponent and catch them off guard with a Potemkin Buster, if you're feeling lucky. Note that while this will let you get to the ground faster, and might even let you hit an unaware opponent, there are plenty of moves that beat it clean or will cause a clash, which you'll lose if you're not prepared. So don't throw it out willy-nilly.
Slams down opponent on air hit (untechable for 40F). Potemkin is in crouching state during landing recovery. Can change angle of descent by holding left/right.
The throw cross on the hitbox is apparently not correct and is higher up on Pot's body somewhere.
Toss your opponent like a ragdoll. Has two hits, one right as Potemkin lets go, and another once they land. Can be FRC'd on frames 40-44 (starting about 11 frames after letting the opponent go), allowing for follow-ups like 2S > Heat Knuckle to keep your opponent close and give you oki. Forced 50% proration means anything longer won't be worth it unless they're nearly dead already.
Floats opponent and fully untechable on hit. 1st hit has forced prorate 50%. FRC timing 40~44F (frames 11~15 after tossing the opponent).
A particularly satisfying airthrow.
Slams down opponent on hit (untechable for 32F). Forced prorate 50%.
Dead Angle Attack
No longer wall bounces like it did in AC, unfortunately. Still, if you need some breathing room, this is a great way to get it. A point blank hit in the corner can still net you a 5P into a small combo.
Fully invincible 1-17F. Throw invincible 18-32F. Potemkin is in CH state 18-35F. Knocks down opponent on hit. Forced prorate 50%.
236P or 214P
Forward lets you close the distance on your opponent, but is otherwise inferior to Reverse in every way. Lower Level (3 on hit, 2 on block) means less hitstun, allowing for quicker tick throws but otherwise not providing any advantage. Can be FRC'd on frames 26 or 27 (the first two active frames).
Knocks down opponent on hit. Lower body invincible from 1F onwards. Potemkin is airborne from 4F onwards. Level 2 attack on block. FRC timing 17-18F and 26-27F. If FRC'd during the first window, the attack won't come out, and Potemkin will change his air movement trajectory. You won't preserve air movement options, but can fit in a fast normal before landing. If FRC'd during the second window, the Mega Fist attack will still come out, but safer.
Backward Mega Fist is superior to Forward in every way. High Level, more active frames, less recovery. Staggers on counter hit. Better as a raw attack than Forward, but not as great for follow-ups without a CH. Can be FRC'd on frames 26-27F, and 29-30F. Yes, it has two FRC windows. Yes, they're a frame apart. No, I don't know why.
Knocks down opponent on hit. Lower body invincible from 1F onwards. Potemkin is airborne from 5F onwards. Staggers opponent on ground CH (max 47F).
One of Potemkin's more interesting moves, Slide Head has two different attacks during its active frames. The first is Potemkin's actual body itself, a level 5 attack that hits low, but that's likely not what you're using it for. If the first attack misses, the second attack occurs, which sends out an unblockable shockwave, covering about 3/4 of the ground at full zoom-out. This shockwave can be avoided by being airborne or if a character lifts their hurtbox off the ground (Dizzy dash, May 5K, etc.). If this connects, it knocks the opponent down, and keeps them there for an extra 40 frames over normal knockdown length, giving Pot time to advance.
When going for a knockdown with Slide Head, make sure you're not too close. If the first attack connects, the knockdown attack won't come out. Additionally, you should always be holding back after performing a Slide Head so that you can charge a Hammer Fall Break to get in. The FRC allows you to combo out of the knockdown when it launches the victim into the air. Slide Head's startup animation has upper body invincibility, but it won't usually help against jump-ins. (Specifically, frames 1-15 are invincible above the feet, and 26-35 are invincible above the knees.)
Above knees invincible 1~16F and 26~35F. Knocks down standing or crouching opponents. Followups are treated as OTG. 1st hit has initial prorate 90%. 2nd hit (quake) has Hitstop 0, Startup 27. Max of one hit. FRC timing 28-30F.
- Potemkin's primary mobility and pressure tool.
- Has a single hit of super armor that will cut the absorbed attack's damage in half. Any additional hits, or any Overdrive, will interrupt Hammer Fall.
- Causes a knockdown when it connects on a grounded opponent, granting oki.
- Requires 30F of charge to execute. Can be canceled into Hammer Fall Break by pressing P while Potemkin is moving (but before the attack portion begins).
- Hammer Fall has a 3F FRC window on hit, block, or whiff. This window begins 3F after hitstop and on frame 3 of Potemkin's fist connecting on whiff. FRC grants significant plus frames (+14 on a first frame FRC) on block and a strong combo on hit.
Potemkin lunges forward with arms spread, then smashes them together when he reaches the opponent or reaches Hammer Fall's maximum distance. It is generally a good idea to charge Hammer Fall when possible for crucial followups, like after Slide Head. If you hold back immediately after inputting a 6H or 6K, you'll have Hammer Fall charged in time to cancel into it which combos at close range. At point blank, Potemkin can cancel into Hammer Fall Break from frame 2 until frame 10 despite being directly next to the opponent. Note that Potemkin cannot cancel the first frame of Hammer Fall, as he must first enter Hammer Fall before he is able to cancel it. Additionally, the lack of an input buffer requires P to be input distinctly after H.
Hammer Fall Break
P during Hammer Fall
Hammer Fall Break lets Potemkin stop Hammer Fall early without an attack, allowing you to put up a defense, or use a more suitable attack for the given situation. Note that if you hit P too late (within about ten frames of it going active), Break won't occur, so it's worthwhile to practice at different ranges and get the timing down, especially when using it for going in after Slidehead, or to catch an opponent with a Potemkin Buster.
Fastest possible Hammer Fall Break completes in 16F, 1F of Hammer Fall and 15F of Hammer Fall Break. FRC timing 4-11F.
A powerful attack with two separate aspects: the attack and the reflect (see below). The attack portion is powerful, with a deceptively large hitbox (extended well beyond and above the flick itself) and good priority. If it hits a grounded opponent, they'll be staggered for a maximum of 65 frames. On block, they'll be pushed away a great distance, and a counter-hit will cause wallstick (untechable for 88 frames, while the actual stick lasts 28 frames).
Staggers opponent on ground hit (max 65F). Wall sticks opponent on CH (untechable for 88F, sticks for 28F). Can reflect projectiles from 4-14F. On successful reflect creates projectile (See F.D.B. Reflect).
The second aspect of F.D.B. During frames 4-14 of F.D.B.'s startup, any projectile within Potemkin's hurtbox (the box that determines if Potemkin is hit) will be reflected back as a slow moving, screen filling projectile.
- This projectile will keep going even if it hits other projectiles (most of which will be destroyed), and will travel for a full screen length or until it strikes the opponent.
- After reflecting a projectile, Potemkin is strike invincible until he recovers, although this won't save you from multi-hit projectiles unless they're out of the way by then.
For a full list of projectiles F.D.B. can reflect, check F.D.B. Reflectable Projectiles.

Your go-to move, that which all of Potemkin's game plan is centered around. With a 176-pixel range, it's hard not to catch people with this. In addition to its already great range, many attacks actually bring the character's throwbox forward, making them even easier to catch, before their active frames have even started.
Front leg invincible 1-2F. Fully invincible 3-5F. Throw invincible 1-16F. On whiff, recovery is 40F total. Dizzy modifier x0.5. Forced proration 75%.
Has 12F afterwards to follow-up attack, for example with c.S in the corner, and with f.S midscreen against some characters.
Potemkin snatches his opponent out of the air and burns them for a while, before unceremoniously dropping them to the ground in front of you for great oki. Has good reach horizontally and vertically, but no invincibility, so its use as an anti-air is somewhat limited. If it misses, it can be FRC'd to make it safe. Fun fact: it's actually possible to Slashback the first hit of Heat Knuckle and Faultless Defense the rest (or Slashback all of them).
Can only hit airborne opponents. 1st-3rd hits fully untechable. 4th hit floats opponent on hit (untechable for 45F). Can input motion for followup Heat Extend for 50F after Potemkin grabs them (visually, you have until the 3rd hit). 1st hit can be SBed. FRC timing 24-25F on whiff only.
63214H during Heat Knuckle
- If input during the first 50 frames of Heat Knuckle, Heat Extend causes Potemkin's gauntlet to open up and focus energy, then detonate the opponent and launch them skyward. Does great damage and builds a ton of tension, but sacrifices oki at midscreen.
- If they happened to Slashback your Heat Knuckle, their only defense against Extend is to do an attack with full invincibility.
Additional Frame Data Blows away and floats opponent on hit (untechable for 80F).
- Has armor from 2f onwards. Armor will absorb multiple hits. Hits absorbed by super armor deal half damage, and Overdrives are never absorbed.
- On frames 2-23, any hit will activate super armor. If hit in the first five frames of a super armor flash, super armor resets and can absorb another hit.
- On frames 24-28, any hit will cause the attack to occur immediately (with 10 frames of startup). The same is true if hit during frames 6-10 of a super armor flash, or if hit seven times during a super armor flash.
- Ground bounces the opponent on hit. If the opponent was grounded during the hit, it's untechable for 38 frames.
- Startup can be cancelled with P, but this has no practical usage.
Judge Gauntlet only exists to make you look like a clown when you mess up TK APBTiger Knee Aerial Potemkin Buster
Often done by performing a 360 motion starting from 6 (632147896), and should be avoided. While you can gimmick people with the cancel or occasionally throw it out as a panic option against a guy running flowchart offense, it's an extremely slow telegraphed reversal that even informs your opponent if they hit it to jump/roman/special/whatever cancel to make themselves safe and then punish you. It also loses to meaties, as it's not frame 1 invincible. Lastly, the hitbox its self is pretty bad and will miss often. Yeah, it looks cool. Don't use it.
Additional Frame Data: Ground bounces opponent on hit (ground hit untechable for 38F). Initial prorate 85%. Potemkin absorbs enemy attacks between 2-28F. If Potemkin gets hit between 2-23F, then he goes into endurance stance immediately. If Potemkin gets hit between 24-28F, then he attacks immediately. Attack starts 10F after the start of endurance stance (getting hit again resets the 10F startup). Potemkin immediately attacks after getting hit 7+ times while in endurance stance. Potemkin takes half damage while absorbing hits. Potemkin cannot absorb supers. Can input P to cancel between 6~24F. Cancel animation is 14F.
Aerial Potemkin Buster
A bit trickier to use than the standard Buster. It will connect as part of a combo, but you can't cancel into it from air normals, so you'll mostly use it from midair jump cancels, or as a followup to ground attacks like counter-hit 6P, a 2H followed by Hammerfall Break, or c.S in the corner. In the corner, c.S to APB loops into itself, creating the Potemkin Bus Tour, which has no stops and only lets you off when you're dead.
Aerial Potemkin Buster can be blocked using Faultless Defense in the air. If blocked in this manner, Potemkin can RC it. If it connects while jumping forward or backward the buster will fall toward the opposite direction.
Knocks down opponent on hit. Potemkin is in CH state till landing. Potemkin is in crouching state during landing recovery.2nd hit has forced prorate 75%. On hit, Potemkin jumps in the direction opposite to the direction he was originally traveling. Can RC only if blocked. FRC timing 9-11F after throw.
Potemkin throws out a wall of shimmering energy (usually referred to as "the mirror") that slowly travels in front of him. The mirror will always come out once the input is done, even if Potemkin is hit out of it. The mirror absorbs most projectiles, and will continue traveling forward even if it doesn't. If the opponent is hit while grounded, they'll be staggered for a maximum of 55 frames, and on air hit it causes float and is untechable for 75 frames. In addition to all that, it has a 3x dizzy modifier. Can be canceled into Gigantic Bullet during frames 16-29.
Fully invincible 1-9F. Strike invincible 10-16F. Staggers opponent on ground hit (max 55F). Untechable for 75F. Dizzy modifier x3. Can cancel into Gigantic Bullet from 16-29F. Shield destroys most other projectiles on contact. Shield always goes active on successful input.
4123641236P during Giganter
Potemkin channels energy into both hands, then combines them into a wave of energy while sliding forward. Wall bounces on hit, allowing for interesting followups. x0 dizzy modifier, meaning its damage is not factored into dizzy at all.
Additional Frame Data Wall bounces opponent on hit (untechable for 60F). Dizzy modifier x0.
Heavenly Potemkin Buster
Potemkin launches upward at a ~40 degree angle, grabbing his opponent out of the air and bringing them crashing back down to earth. Potemkin is invincible until he leaves the ground, at which point he has upper body invincibility for 15 frames, allowing HPB to be used as an anti-air in most instances. Keep in mind that it's not completely safe, though - many moves can beat it outright, and sometimes it will whiff completely, seemingly for no reason. Heavenly Potemkin Buster will always connect after a 2H, but you have to cancel into it as soon as the 2H connects.
Fully invincible 1-12F. Upper body invincible 13-27F. Potemkin is airborne from 13F onwards. Knocks down opponent on hit. Dizzy modifier x0.5.
During IK Mode: 236236H
Hitbox is potemkin himself. A dizzied opponent in the corner is probably your best chance,but don't bet on it.
