Overview

Robot. Ky. Gimmic-ky.

Ky's robotic doppelganger. Despite having a few similar normals, Robo-Ky plays very differently than his human counterpart. Robo-Ky plays a fairly well-rounded strike/throw game, but in addition, requires managing his unique meter systems. His electric meter system changes the strengths and utility of much of his moveset, ranging from weak and pitiable moves to high damage and very quick stun output. His heat gauge affects some of his other moves by changing their hitstun and damage output, but Robo-Ky needs to take care to ensure that this meter doesn't hit 100%, otherwise he'll self destruct, get knocked down, and lose all of his momentum.

Robo has the potential to be a tricky and damaging character once you become strong at managing his resources.

(Small random note: Robo-Ky's voice actor in AC actually used to voice Robo-Ky Mk II from Isuka.)

Pros Cons
  • High defense and very difficult to stun.
  • High stun potential in the corner from various starters, with meter.
  • One of two characters that can delay their wakeup, forcing the opponent to adjust the timing of their pressure.
  • Is heavily rewarded for instant blocking as he gains meter quickly from it compared to other characters.
  • Good at controlling a large air space in front of him, restricting the opponent’s movement.
  • At high meter has one of the best DP anti-airs in the game.
  • Strong tick throw and frame trap game.
  • Meter dependence on special moves makes him vulnerable at round start in some matchups, and overall very resource intensive.
  • 5 frame jump startup combined with a low jump height makes him one of the least mobile characters in the game.
  • Low average damage off random hits on top of limited gatling routes with unconventional normals. His big burst damage combos generally leave him with no resources and very high heat.
  • No real means of securing a knockdown from an air combo.
  • High heat (80+) can lock Robo out of certain tools out of fear of overheating.
  • Can be locked out of combo routes due to having too much meter. Requires improvisation to convert based on available meter and current heat.
  • Has few opportunities to lock the opponent down to safely use his high/low tools.
Electric Gauge
Robo-Ky's Electric and Heat Gauges

After picking Robo, one can clearly see that his tension gauge looks different from everybody else’s. Instead of the standard bar, his only indicates meter in increments of 10%. His special moves change properties based on this meter, which can be charged mainly by using and standing over his 2D Mat move (His sweep is instead allocated to his 2S).

For the following meter ranges, his specials are set to corresponding levels:

  • 0 bars = Lvl 1 specials
  • 1-4 bars = Lvl 2 specials
  • 5-10 bars = Lvl 3 specials
Overall, his lvl 1 specials are pretty useless and have minimal use, while his Lvl 2 and 3 specials each have their particular uses.
Heat Gauge
Robo-Ky has a second, circular gauge that tells his temperature with tick marks for every 10°C.

This gauge, representing heat, changes the properties of his 6H, 2S and 2H. At 80+ heat, Robo does more damage and has additional hitstun, giving him combos limited to high heat. Additionally, and often overlooked, at 80+ heat all his normals will do chip damage! This catches many people off guard! 80+ heat damage seems to be calculated by adding the first digit of the damage value to the damage of the move. So if a move normally does 20 damage, it would do 22 at 80+ heat. 42 would do 46, 15 would do 16, etc. This persists through damage scaling.

  • 30-49 heat, 30 is the lowest default value of heat
  • 50-79 heat
  • 80-99 heat
  • At 100 heat, Robo-Ky overheats and does self inflicted damage, gets knocked down, and has his heat reset back to 30.

The blessing and the curse.

  • 5F startup makes this a common mash button while holding back. Will nab a throw when close, or tend to CH or trade in RK's favor when the 5H comes out. However, this habit is extremely punishable when baited.
  • Due to its speed, it can be used as a good frame trap button, even off of moves that are slightly disadvantageous.
  • In very specific situations, can be used as an anti-air. An aerial counterhit can be followed up without spending meter.
  • 5H FRC is a pretty important tool. It can be used for pressure strings and is the primary launcher off of 2S and a lvl 3 214S.

[edit]

The elbow shotgun.

  • Can be chained into itself up to 2 more times. Each 6P builds more heat than the previous in this chain.
  • Pretty good horizontal range and can be used as a poke in neutral.
  • Counterhit 6P can be confirmed into a combo near the corner.
  • Has longer range than 2S, so can be used after a c.S hits to give a knockdown at ranges 2S wouldn’t. It has a large amount of knockback, so your pressure options after the knockdown are different from a 2S knockdown.
  • Counts as a projectile and can be used to cancel other projectiles out. At close ranges, it is possible to cancel out a projectile with a single 6P, then hit the opponent out of recovery with a chained second 6P.
  • If only a single 6P is done, it will give an untechable knockdown. This allows for 6P loops in the corner off a juggle.
  • Has upper body invincibility, so can be used as a possible anti-air. Unfortunately, due to the fact that the hitbox is so far forward and does not have a great vertical hitbox, spacing the move out to be used as an anti-air can be difficult.

The followup hits are mainly for building excessive levels of heat, in order to get Robo up to a certain level.

  • Maintains the upper body invincibility of the first hit, which can be used to bait punish attempts or try for another AA if the first one whiff.s

[edit]

Primary Heat management tool.

  • Level 1 exists between 30-49 Heat.
  • This move has limited uses due to its short range and the fact that lowering heat at this point has no real benefit.
  • Can be used to cancel out projectiles, although better options exist.

  • Level 2 exists between 50-79 Heat.
  • The most useful version of 6H.
  • Amazing as a meaty. If you do not have enough time to set a mat and bazooka, 6H at this temperature range is a very good option. Leads to a good frame trap or tick throw.
  • Staggers on Counter Hit, long enough to go for a combo or a command throw if you are not too far away from the opponent.
  • Also functions as an amazing poke in neutral. Although it is slower than f.S or 6P, it makes up for it by having an FRC point and it does not extend Robo’s hurtbox as far out.
  • A blockstring like 2k, 6H, run up, command grab is particularly effective. On subsequent attempts you can substitute in a Ground Bazooka instead of the command grab.

  • Level 3 exists between 80-99 Heat.
  • This is generally used for blockstrings and combos.
  • The extended stagger on hit lets Robo do a damaging 6H loop (run, 5p, 6H, repeat) while lowering his heat. If you FRC one of the Level 3 steams early on, you will have more time to land additional hits of the loop in high heat.
  • Still safe on block, but not advantageous like Lvl 2.

[edit]

The move everyone seems to hate, which is what basically happens when you take one half of Stun Dipper for your own purposes.

  • Is -8 on block but still ok for tick throw. Can be spaced to made safe or plus.
  • Has a very low profile that allows it to go under moves such as Ky’s fireballs.
  • Combo into 2s for B&B.
  • Will build heat, so must be used in moderation at high heat.

Supplementary Frame Data: Low Profile 7-22F. In CH State during recovery. Raises heat by 3.6 C on frame 1, followed by 2 increases of 3.6 C every 3 frames. (total temperature decrease of 10.8 C).

[edit]

Robo-Ky's actual sweep.

  • Cancel into 5H FRC on block or hit to stuff/continue pressure/BnB.
  • Late 5H after a blocked 2K~2S is a decent frame trap. If 5h counterhits and staggers, knockdown and keep annoying them. Subsequent attempts can be blocked 2K tick~command grab, blocked 2K~2S~2D and blocked 2K~2H (FRC optional).
  • Cancel on hit into 2d for mat on knockdown and then okizeme.
  • If the opponent is blocking ground bazooka, you can attempt a combo starter with this instead of 2k, as it does not prorate!

In 80+ heat, this badboy is +1 on block! Be careful as it generates heat, but ONLY WHILE IN 80+ heat.

  • Hits twice and launches opponent. It is possible to then jump or superjump after your opponent to combo. This is ideal as you do not need to spend tension to 5H FRC or the combo like you normally do in lower heat mode.
  • In 80+ heat, this move will give small amounts of meter.
  • If the second hit counterhits, it gives an untechable launch that can lead to a massive combo.

Projectile.

  • Since the Knee-Rocket emanates from Robo-Ky, while he is grounded, the projectile itself MUST be blocked in the air utilizing Faultless Defense! This catches many people off guard!
  • Gives small amounts of meter on hit and block.
  • Good for controlling the opponent’s air actions. Great as soon as an opponent jumps with some distance between you, or if they are at the top of the screen.
  • Despite being negative on block, it can be used as a frame trap with the dragon punch.
  • On whiff, the opponent has lots of time to approach or punish due to the large recovery time unless FRC'd.
  • At close ranges, will combo from 2S on most characters. Use this opportunity to lay a mat or harass with more 2H as they fall or tech in more predictable trajectories.
  • After a blocked 2K, throw out a 2H every once in a while. The delay can catch people off guard. If they block both the 2K and 2H, try FRC'ing into a 5D! This is sneaky as the explosion from the knee rocket quasi-camouflages your 5D, and many times they'll still be blocking low as a result of you starting the whole process with a 2K!

In 80+ heat, the missile will come back down based on the initial position and direction Robo was facing. This is a good tool to try and restrict the opponent’s movement farther. Due to the fact that while in high heat, 2H also builds heat, this move cannot be abused and must be used with a little more caution.

  • The downward missile from the 80 heat missile is a true projectile and does not need to be FDed in the air. On hit, it causes a very fast knockdown that generally cannot be converted into damage.
  • Fishing for a counterhit 2H on a grounded opponent may give them opportunities to escape, but the reward for landing one can drastically shift the round in your favor.

  • Jump cancellable, special cancellable, and gatlings into all his other air normals.
  • Has similar uses as j.P but has longer active frames and a better horizontal hitbox.
  • Can be used as a jump in, but needs to hit pretty deep because it does not have a very good vertical hitbox.
  • From a TK FB, can be used in a very tricky mixup.

28 High/Air SR 8 3 41 -7

[edit]

A good air to air normal.

  • Has long horizontal range and a rewarding counterhit.
  • Very fast, so it is possible to miss the airthrow, but still land the counterhit.
  • Builds large amounts of heat. This can be both a good and a bad thing.
  • Special cancellable, so can be used to fix the opponent’s positioning for a missile loop.
  • Does not have a very good vertical hitbox. It can be used as a jump in, but mileage may vary.

Supplementary Frame Data: Untechable for 20F. Wall sticks opponent on CH (untechable for 108F, sticks for 27F). Robo-Ky is in CH state 1-33F. Raises heat by 21.6 C on frame 1.

[edit]

Mostly a bad thing. Try to manage heat, so that you don’t overheat.

  • In certain situations when you know that you will be taking damage, (about to eat an unblockable) overheating intentionally to force additional combo scaling and to try and screw up the opponent’s combo timing is an option.
  • As overheating is considered a hit, it is possible to slashback the explosion in the air only. Doing this will restore your air options.

Supplementary Frame Data: This attack hits only Robo-Ky and not the opponent. Untechable for 60F. Initial Prorate 50% for the opponent. Resets heat to 30.0 C afterwards.

The meter mat. You're gonna be throwing this puppy out a lot.

  • Generates roughly 3 blocks of your battery gauge if you stand on it for its whole duration. Does not disappear when hit.
  • Standing on a mat while doing something that would give meter increases that meter gain (Robodash, command throw, instant block, slashback).
  • This mat also gives the opponent meter if they stand on it too.

Supplementary Frame Data: Robo-Ky is in crouching state during move. From frame 9 on, mat will be layed, even if Robo-Ky is hit. (Untranslated). Staying above the mat raises Robo-Ky's Electricity Gauge by 0.3% every frame, TG by 0.1% per frame.

[edit]

Bazooka. Use this to keep your enemies in blockstun, especially after knocking them down. After a bazooka, use the blockstun to lay a mat, set up a tick throw, go for frame traps, or go for a high/low situation off of a jump.

  • All versions can be low profiled, keep wary of characters who can go under it.
  • As with most of the level 1 specials, level 1 bazooka doesn’t see as much use.

Level 2 bazooka is significantly more plus than the level 1 version due to an extra hit.

  • More time to run the oki gamut.
  • Range is not that great, so it won’t get much mileage if done from a blockstring.

Level 3 bazooka is generally the go-to move after a knockdown.

  • Substantially plus, giving you plenty of time to run the mixup.
  • Longer range makes this version viable to use after a c.S or f.S from farther out.
    • Be wary of opponents jumping over it when used this way.

Pony. Useful for pressure and combos.

  • Lvl 1 is of very little value. It is extremely slow on startup and has very little horizontal range.
  • Despite being +2, it's quite a risk to go for. Avoid it.

Lvl 2 is substantially better. Robo gains some actual momentum.

  • Can be used after c.S or on an opponent’s wakeup as a throw bait.
  • On Counter Hit, causes a ground slide that can combo into a Robodash.
  • At high heat, it can be looped on standing or aerial opponents for big damage.

Lvl 3 is far more dangerous.

  • Plus on block, causes a launch on hit, and a wallbounce on counterhit.
    • If the opponent is too far away from the wall, they can tech before they get back to you.
  • Can be used after c.S or f.S to get in and reapply pressure along with baiting wakeup throws from opponents.
  • Works as a decent neutral tool, but if done too far away from the opponent, it’s not too difficult to slashback or counterpoke.
  • At 80+ heat, it can be looped for massive damage and a knockdown.
  • Has the ability to cross over a downed opponent's body. This can lead to many different potential mixups as opponent is waking up.

Robo’s dragon punch. Grounded and air versions are nearly identical with the primary difference being that the 1st hit of the lvl 2 and 3 air versions are overheads. Only the grounded Lvl 3 version will cancel into the super version.

  • Lvl 1 DP is of little use while grounded.
  • Has no strike invincibility, pretty weak.
  • Has a passable level of throw invuln, but you're still better off just jumping in that case.

Lvl 2 is an actual Dragon Punch.

  • While this one does have invincibility, it does not have much horizontal range and is fairly easy to bait out.

Lvl 3 is your most reliable "get outta dodge" move.

  • Will auto follow up into a super if the first hit connects.
  • If the second hit Counter Hits, there is a long untechable window that can be converted into a big damage combo.

[edit]

Lvl 1 is mostly used to end air combos where applicable.


Lvl 2 hits overhead, can be followed up when FRC'd.

  • Vital to Robo's mixup game. tk.DP hits as a completely unreactable overhead.

Lvl 3 is equally invincible air version of the grounded Lvl 3, however, this one will not convert into the super on hit.

  • Can still be RCed into a big combo even if you miss the FRC.

[edit]

The air missile. This move has various uses depending on its level.

  • Lvl 1 missile, goes limp and falls down almost immediately. While mostly useless, can still be used to try and chip out an opponent, but generally should not be used.
  • For all levels: The landing recovery frames of the air missile can be cancelled in two ways:
    • The easier way is to neutral jump after the missile.
    • The more difficult, but more useful way is to land during the active frames of a jump cancellable air normal.

Lvl 2 is the most versatile version.

  • 7 frames of startup, can be used as an air to air option.
  • High stun on Counter Hit and wallbounce, which can lead to a high damaging combo or an instant stun on characters with low stun resist.
  • Corner missile loops. These do lots of damage and have a chance to stun. Watch your initial meter and heat to see if this is a possible route.

Supplementary Frame Data: Blows opponent away on air hit (untechable for 25F). Wall bounces opponent on CH. Robo-Ky is in CH state 1-21F. Robo-Ky is in crouching state during landing recovery. Dizzy modifier x2.0. Missile tracks opponent until 25F. Missile disappears immediately if Robo-Ky is hit. Raises heat by 4.1 C on 7F.


Lvl 3 missiles are mostly used lock an opponent down or to try and control their air movement in your favor.

  • Cancelling your landing recovery off the air normal from an air dash makes this a great approach tool.

Note that almost every character has tools to deal with missile spamming, so it’s important to learn the ranges that each character can punish it with.

[edit]

The meter stealing command throw.

  • Deals a floaty knockdown, giving Robo plenty of time for a set up (Examples: Running empty j.p over their body, land, low. Running empty j.p over their body, air backdash, j.SRK. Superjump vertically/diagonally over their body to the other side, land, 5k, Punch Spam super.)
  • Does a number of hits based on how much meter you steal from the opponent. At lower hits, it is possible to follow up with a meterless air combo.
  • Using the fact that 2D also gives the opponent meter, you can use this to get max hits on the command throw even if the opponent doesn’t have enough meter to steal initially.
  • On certain characters, Robo can combo 5k c.s 6p for some additional damage after a full hit command throw.
  • The throw invincibility frames on startup (frames 1-7) helps with the throw setups on opponents wake up after their throw invul period passes.

[edit]

Fast air mobility tool which can keep you low to the ground.

  • Has potential for really tricky mixups, but the initial meter cost can be pretty penalizing on the potential combo routes following the hit.
  • Reduces heat, so can be used to prevent overheating or to manage heat during an air combo.
  • Generally seen most frequently during the install super to try and catch the opponent right before the super explosion.
  • Its uses as an instant overhead tool seem to have depreciated due to the fact that the air version of the DP is also an overhead. This will generally more reliably combo into a knockdown though.
  • Situational uses as an air combo extension tool due to the fact that it gives back an air option (if it’s used before the air option is used, it will not give an additional one).
  • Can be utilized after confirming a high heat air to air hit to tack on a little extra damage.

[edit]

The most versatile Robo Super.

  • Although it lacks the invincibility of the DP, this move can actually be used as a reversal in situations.
  • A potential frame trap tool. If done while standing on a mat, it ends up being a net of about -20% meter with no meter gain penalty.
  • Using the followup attack it can also be used as a tool to reset heat.
  • Is easily hit confirmable and has the potential to either grant a knockdown or lead to a high damage air combo.

The headbutt blows away and wallbounces for conversions. Best done early on when close to the wall to maximize damage.

  • Can be safe dependent on spacing.
  • Lowers Robo's heat significantly on use.

[edit]

Unique super, in the aspect that it will consume 50% meter if that is all that is available, but will take 60% meter in all other cases.

  • The first hit is not a super and can be bursted, although that usually leads to an auto burst bait and the opponent gets hit by the third hit.
  • Although this move comes out very fast and has lots of invincibility, there are many positions on the screen where you end up with a crossover knockdown that is very difficult to deal with.
  • Probably Robo's most reliable anti-air.
  • There are situations where the super can be followed up with an air combo which ends up doing lots of damage.
  • This is a super, where the threat of the existence of the move might be more useful than the move itself. The potential threat of the move can make opponents loosen up their offense in fear of losing lots of life.

Supplementary Frame Data: Fully invincible 1-9F. Strike invincible 10-69F. Wall bounces and knocks down opponent on hit. Opponent's inputs are disabled for 5 frames after the super flash. Robo-Ky is in CH state until landing.

[edit]

Robo-Ky Firmware Patch that will overclock his systems. Strong buffing install super.

  • After activation, a countdown timer appears over Robo’s head and he moves faster and will naturally gain meter.
  • Generally speaking, this is an install super that has higher risk and lower rewards.
  • Many characters still have no problems outmaneuvering Robo even while in the install mode.
  • If you are in this mode and you connect with a Level 3 214S (Horse), you can juggle with 236236S (Punch Spam Super) until you explode. You can also do this off his command grab. These are both ideal combo routes as it will prevent your opponent from bursting.
  • It is pretty common to see Robos use a FB right before exploding to try and catch or cross up the opponent.

After the timer runs out, Robo will explode and a large air unblockable projectile will appear centered around Robo.

  • After this explosion, Robo is put in an untechable knockdown (although it is burstable to recover slightly faster), loses all his meter, and his heat is reset back to 30.
  • If the opponent is forced to block the explosion on the ground, Robo has chances for a few mixup opportunities, although with little to no meter, the followup damage on the combo would not be very high.
  • As stated earlier you can Burst during the explosion to recover sooner. This will allow you more time to mixup, or even potentially combo by doing a 2d mat, frame perfect Robo Dash, re-activate, Punch Spam super, explode (The Nezu Combo).
  • Despite the limited options available to Robo as a result of losing all his tension, something as simple as a 5d connecting after opponent fully blocks the explosion and additional hits can result in huge damage.
