GGST/Goldlewis Dickinson

From Dustloop Wiki

Overview

Overview

Goldlewis has three defining features to his gameplay: His unique movement, his Behemoth Typhoon, and his Security Gauge. But beyond that, Goldlewis is a character of extremes. His offensive tools are devastatingly powerful, but his defensive tools are notably poor. His tools to control his opponent's movement are amazing, but his slow speed and large body make it easier for the opponent to control his movement. When everything is put together, though, he's an absolute monster.

What most separates Goldlewis apart from the cast is his Behemoth Typhoons. This move in its 16 total variations (8 on the ground, 8 in the air) is the cornerstone of Goldlewis' offense while also having significant application in neutral. Learning how to use each individual Behemoth Typhoon is key to mastering Goldlewis' offense. All Behemoths deal great damage and grant hard knockdown. In addition, the grounded versions cause a guard crush on block, increasing chip damage and frame advantage, preventing the opponent from using YRC, and enhancing his strike/throw game.

Goldlewis also has access to an additional resource in the Security Level. While not used as often as most other additional resources in the game, it grants access to stronger versions of Skyfish, Thunderbird, and Burn It Down. These primarily assist his neutral, with all three being a projectile of some sort. Skyfish is a great anti-zoning tool, Thunderbird acts as strong approach option as well as an amazing tool for okizeme, and Burn It Down serves as a last-resort option to force an interaction.

Goldlewis’s devastating offense and large hitboxes are a cut above the rest. But if you’ve heard any silly rumors about an alien inside the coffin, best to just ignore it. Don’t be ridiculous!

Unique Mechanic: Security Level
GGST Goldlewis Dickinson Security Gauge.png


Security Level is a resource Goldlewis can spend to augment his special and super moves. The icon on the top of the gauge represents his current Security Level, which increases from Level 1, to 2, then 3 (there is no Level 0) Goldlewis starts the round at Level 1.

Goldlewis' Security Level increases passively over time. As Security Level increases, Goldlewis' S special moves (Thunderbird and Skyfish) and Burn It Down gain three separate versions that correspond with his current Security Level. Using any of these moves causes the meter to be reset to 1. The gauge takes 2 seconds to fill from Level 1 to 2, but takes longer at 6 seconds to fill from Level 2 to 3.

Normal Moves

StartupThe time before an attack is active including the first active frame. For example, an attack with 10F startup means the attack will do nothing for 9 frames, then hit the opponent on the 10th frame. Frames
ActiveThe active frames of an attack refers to the amount of time an attack can hit the opponent. Frames
InactiveFrames in the middle of multi-hit attacks which cannot hit the opponent, but are after the move has become active at least once. Frames
RecoveryThe recovery of an attack refers to the amount of time an attacker must wait before he may perform another action, even blocking. Frames
Special RecoveryThe recovery of an attack refers to the amount of time an attacker must wait before they may perform another action.Recovery frames which happen under abnormal conditions, such as after landing. Frames
ProjectileIndicates an entity that exists separately from the character has become active. Usually something like a FireballA projectile which usually travels slowly across the screen in a horizontal path above the ground.. Active
CancelA window in which to cancel a move. Can be varied in usage. Window

Plus, but it whiffing on crouching opponents makes this move very unreliable to use in pressure. Quite lacking in terms of defense due to its 7-frame startup and aforementioned tendency to whiff, though its high hitbox makes it a good anti-air. Often used to buffer Behemoth Typhoons starting from 8 on oki or when covered by a drone because of its low total frames.

  • Does not chain into itself, but is plus enough to link into 2P on hit.
  • Combos into 624H or 684H on hit for a knockdown.
  • Whiffs on most crouching characters and standing Giovanna.

An interesting normal that is more suited to counterpoking lows. The hitbox retracts during startup and is disjointed while it's active. Combos into 2D for a knockdown anywhere.

  • Retracts Goldlewis' low hurtbox before striking.
  • Jump and dash cancelable.
  • Stagger on Counter Hit.

Basic punish and non-P or K pressure starter. Delay gatlings can discourage opponents from mashing, which opens up tick throw attemps or more Behemoth Typhoon shenanigans. Also plus on block so a possible reset point. Interestingly, this can be used as a crouch confirm from P buttons, giving Goldlewis either oki or high damage.

  • Decent tick throw spot but requires a microdash.
  • Jump and dash cancelable on hit/block, great for pressure resets.
  • Jump cancel can make some Behemoth Typhoon cancels difficult.

Your fastest poke in neutral. Forward advancing and decently disjointed, it is a reliable button all around. On grounded hit, canceling into 684H is ideal as you get good oki afterwards anywhere on the screen. Counterhits are very rewarding if optimized with 486H or 426H. Blows back at a downward angle on air hit making it tricky if not impossible to continue a combo outside the corner.

  • Prime poking normal, always combos into 624H and 684H.
  • Combos into 486H and 426H on counter hit for higher damage conversions.

Frametraps from c.S, highly overshadowed by Behemoth Typhoons like 268H, Lots of active frames and disjoint make it a usable counterpoke, but generally outshined by Behemoth Typhoons. Finds use as an OTG in the corner in specific setups and in some combos, but little else. Generally comes out as an input error when trying to cancel into Behemoth Typhoons from c.S.

  • Surprisingly safe on block at -2.

Uncharged Dust

One whole frame faster than 862H, making it Goldlewis' fastest overhead. Sadly it does not come with that move's frame advantage. Can be gatling from 5K, 2K, or c.S for a mixup. Using it after c.S will frame trap although it requires meter to convert into a combo.

  • Uncharged dust on-hit is 0 or neutral frame advantage and causes float

Charged Dust

Similar to uncharged but is slow enough to be reacted to, but if it does land it gives a very high damaging combo.

  • Data in [] represents values when fully charged.
  • Charged dust leads to soft knockdown (+36).
  • Holding up during the hitstop frames of charged dust will activate homing jump:
    • Doing a homing jump will cause an area shift and put the opponent into a unique high damaging air combo state.
    • Pressing any attack twice without jump/dash cancel will activate the homing jump finisher causing a hard knockdown (+23).
    • Homing jump combos can sometimes increase meter balance enough to activate positive bonus.

Doesn't whiff on crouching opponents and is a little faster than 5P at the cost of some range. Like 5P, can frametrap into c.S up close, making it useful for also sneaking in Behemoth Typhoons or throws. Loses to any characters 6P and a significant amount of crouching attacks, so don't go to crazy mashing this on block. The disjointed hitbox makes this an actually good anti-air for Goldlewis.

This normal also has a low enough recovery to be done meaty and still be able to block invincible reversals as well as make the move + enough to make another 2P be a true blockstring.

  • Does not chain into itself, but is plus enough to link into itself on hit.
  • On counter hit, it is plus enough to link into c.S or even 2K at further ranges.
  • Plus on block.
  • Combos into 624H or 684H on hit for a knockdown.
  • Goldlewis' fastest button.

Goldlewis' fastest low.

An important move for Goldlewis, as it is his longest ranged move with less than 10f startup as well as his fastest low, and it beats out low profile moves. Combos into 2D and 684H at all ranges raw, though it sometimes will push outside of range for 2D in combos.

Slower than f.S, but hits low profile, has slightly more reach, and is disjointed in return. Since it doesn't send the opponent away on aerial hit like f.S this is also an important normal for combos when you can't get c.S.

684H and 624H will whiff when connecting this move at tip range, making it a worse poke than you'd think.

  • Coffin is entirely disjointed.
  • Combos into 486H and 426H on counter hit for high damage conversions.

Goldlewis has a unique 6P that hits much higher than usual before coming down later in its active frames. Though this makes it a better anti-air against high jump-ins, it makes it the slowest 6P in the game to use in some counterpoke situations where it will not connect until its later active frames. It is punishable both on block and on hit if not cancelled, so a Behemoth Typhoon should always be buffered after inputting this move.

  • Hits slightly later on crouching opponents (Frame 15)
  • Combos into 486H on counter hit and 684H on normal hit.

When blocked at range can be canceled into Security level 3 214S to get drone out relatively safely. Combos into Security level 3 236S on hit anywhere. Can now be canceled into special moves to retain momentum, allowing you to pull some shenanigans during midrange pressure with 6H > 486H or 6H > 426H. On counterhit near the corner, the tumble state is so long that you can drop Security level 3 214S, run up into 624H to pop them up into the drone, then run up and combo afterwards.

  • Huge damage and range, but very slow.
  • Advances forward.

Your air-to-air button built for speed. Smaller and less active than j.S, but the faster startup makes it better for scrambles and as a rising air-to-air. However, it doesn't chain into itself, so be prepared to cancel into a Behemoth Typhoon as needed. Also has niche use in combos, such as picking up after a j.S air-to-air.

  • Excellent speed for its size
  • Does not cancel into itself

Useful as an instant overhead in F-shikiSometimes known as "Fuzzy Overhead". When you are in blockstun, you can switch high/low blocking, but your blocking animation and hurtbox does not change until you leave blockstun or block another attack. F-Shikis take advantage of this and use overheads that would miss on crouching characters, but not on standing characters. setups because it combos into j.D. Used for fake crossups by doing a jump forward over the opponent into air backdash j.K. Has some niche use in pressure sequences when performed low to the ground and then cancelled into j.248H.

  • Can crossup.
  • Quick startup jump-in button, but mostly outclassed by j.D for general use.

Goldlewis's main crossup tool. After a hard knock down or during 214S drone pressure, it can be a near unseeable 50/50. It can also combo from a c.S jump cancel and follow into j.D on standing opponents.

  • Too slow to come out from an IAD, SJ IAD makes it come out very low to the ground.

Overall amazing air button. Absurdly difficult to anti air if used while rising, though it's only plus if used later into your jump. Has a small disjoint, so it can actually clash with some 6Ps, upon which you can cancel into a BT or another j.D. Cancel into an air BT on hit for a hard knockdown and extra damage. Represents a huge part of Goldlewis's neutral game thanks to its reach coupled with Goldlewis's low jump arc. Baiting and punishing enemy 6Ps with empty jumps and airdash BTs is essential to fully utilize this move as a neutral tool.

  • Strong jump-in option
  • Covers insane amount of space near ground
  • Your best button for manually timing a safejump given its high active time.

Special Moves

Note on Behemoth Typhoon

This move has 8 different versions, all sharing the same name. Each corresponds to a different half-circle plus the H button, including some very unconventional motions. Because of this, all half-circles have been abbreviated to only the cardinal directions in numpad notation. For example, 41236H becomes 426H, 69874H becomes 684H and so on.

For Hitbox/Mixbox Players: A max of 1 of the 3 intermediate motions of Behemoth Typhoon can be skipped (with the first and last being "mandatory"). This applies to all other Half-circle inputs as well.[1]

Reading Startup and On Block Advantage

Each version of Behemoth Typhoon technically starts up on frame 12, but not every version typically makes contact with the opponent at the very beginning of its active frames. Many versions have a sort of auto-meaty behavior in a sense that they'll usually make contact somewhere in the middle of their active frames as opposed to the first frame at the start of the swing. For example, 426H BTGGST Goldlewis Dickinson Behemoth Typhoon (426).pngGuard:

, starts on frame 12 but the first hitbox is positioned behind Goldlewis. The hitbox doesn't make it to the front of Goldlewis until frame 26 (14 frames into its active frames) where it will typically connect with a point-blank opponent. If a version of BT commonly hits at a certain spot in the swing other than the beginning, the startup to that point will be noted in the move notes. On-block frame advantage is listed assuming Goldlewis is standing point-blank to the opponent. Spacing and per character variances will be mentioned in the overview notes.

Active Frame Distribution

Behemoth Typhoon has a moving hitbox tightly bound by the front of the coffin during the swing. The hitbox travels in steps matching the animation which last between 1-5 frames, exact details listed below. Behemoth Typhoon versions with 20 active frames differ from the 15 active frame versions only in their initial 3 active frame steps.

  • For 20F versions: Three steps spaced closely at the beginning of the swing lasting 4F, 5F, 5F respectively
  • For 15F versions: Three steps in the same spots instead lasting 3F, 3F, 3F respectively
  • Two steps, one just before and one after the middle point of the swing lasting 2F, 1F respectively
  • Two steps spaced closely at the end of the swing lasting 1F, 2F respectively

The main takeaway here is that the active frames are heavily weighted towards the beginning of the swing while the end of the swing only has a 3F active window. From a more applicable viewpoint, the beginning of the swing of a Behemoth Typhoon can very easily meaty an opponent on their wakeup, but the end of the swing can be consistently avoided with a backdash.

See an example animation of these hitboxes here. Note the duration of the hitboxes shown here are all the same and not to scale with the actual move.

Outstanding combo tool that leads to massive damage in the corner. The huge wallbounce gives you any combo you want. Converts from 2H and large counter hits. Decent in block strings for its plus frames and long reach. Can act as a DP safe meaty when spaced properly thanks to its lack of extended hurtbox late in its active frames.

  • 26F startup point blank, but commonly hits on frame 29 at further ranges.
  • Front hit launches midscreen and wallbounces in the corner.
  • Hitboxes at Goldlewis's feet (26-28F) will launch but not wallbounce the opponent.

The easiest Behemoth Typhoon both in input and application. Combos from most of his pokes at max range and is fast enough to combo from P buttons. Has fast startup for its range so it can serve as a decent poke, although it is dangerous to whiff.

A medium ranged launcher that has good all around utility. It's tied for the fastest Behemoth Typhoon versions in terms of total duration and has the best range in that category. Its range and frame advantage on top of Behemoth Typhoon's typical chip damage and disjointed hitbox make it an amazing corner pressure tool that is difficult to escape. If you happen to get counterhit by this move (especially in the corner), Goldlewis can do some absolutely illegal damage into either a wallbreak or a hard knockdown.

  • 12F~23F effective startup, varies with range.
  • +3 OB at point blank range but typically +6 or +9 after the push back of a normal. +12 further away and +14 at max range.

Fast startup and launch direction gives this better oki than 624H while still comboing after moves like 5P. Also makes for a good combo ender because of its floaty launch and hard knockdown. A great move to cancel into purple RC as its launch direction gives you enough time to close the gap and combo into any of the bigger combo extending Behemoth Typhoon versions. Be careful using this at absolute point-blank range, as there is a small deadzone right in front of Goldlewis.

  • Long reach combo ender.
  • Launches opponents upwards on hit.
  • Air version can start a combo if it hits at the end of the swing low to the ground.
  • *Last 3 active frames are overhead but they only hit behind Goldlewis.

A slow overhead, but has the second longest reach and second most plus frames out of all the Behemoth Typhoons. It's a great move to combo into off of big midscreen counterhits or a normal hit 2H since it leads into more combo opportunities thanks to its ground bounce properties. Also a useful tool to occasionally throw out in pressure for dealing with opponents who FD often. Its the only Behemoth Typhoon version with built-in forward movement and has gratuitous plus frames, allowing Goldlewis to easily continue pressuring his opponent.

  • 29F startup against crouching opponents and some of the shorter standing characters:
  • 28F startup against most of the cast while they are standing (+14 OB). Will connect on frame 29 at further ranges, both standing and crouching.
  • Will ground bounce on hit only at the end of the swing (28-31F). Can hit a sour spot if it connects half way through the swing or earlier (27F or earlier).
  • Can be used to set up F-shikiSometimes known as "Fuzzy Overhead". When you are in blockstun, you can switch high/low blocking, but your blocking animation and hurtbox does not change until you leave blockstun or block another attack. F-Shikis take advantage of this and use overheads that would miss on crouching characters, but not on standing characters. on block with tension or meterlessly against the shorter characters and universally when done as a meaty.

One of Goldlewis's two low hitting Behemoth Typhoons, the most plus on block of any version, but the second shortest range. It's a great meaty option as it has good reward both on block and hit. Due to its input and slow speed however it requires setup to use as an effective meaty. This Behemoth Typhoon can also be used as a pressure reset in block strings, usually with Kara Cancels to compensate for its short range. It has relatively little use in combos except to quickly side switch enemies directly above Goldlewis.

  • 25F startup to the final hitbox of this move where it most commonly connects, but against wider characters such as Potemkin it will connect on frame 24 at point-blank range instead (+15 on block)
  • FD will often make this move whiff when it used as a pressure reset. This can be mitigated with a Dash Kara Cancel.
  • When hitting an opponent on 12-22F the opponent will always side switch. Hilariously, if Goldlewis manages to hit an opponent behind him on any of these frames the opponent will be launched in the opposite direction of the swing such that it still side switches.
  • On taller characters it is possible for this move to connect at the beginning of the swing in which case it hits mid instead of low. This primarily happens against Faust and Potemkin, but can happen with other characters that can extended their hurtbox upwards. Most commonly will hit on frame 15 making it only +5 on block or will side switch the opponent on hit with no combo opportunities.

Overhead, and faster than the other one with less significant reward on hit. This Behemoth Typhoon version deals the most damage when hitting OTG but it's too slow for that to matter outside of a post-throw OTG.

  • Startup against grounded opponents is 21F vs standing and 23F vs crouching
  • Can be used to set up F-shikiSometimes known as "Fuzzy Overhead". When you are in blockstun, you can switch high/low blocking, but your blocking animation and hurtbox does not change until you leave blockstun or block another attack. F-Shikis take advantage of this and use overheads that would miss on crouching characters, but not on standing characters. on block with tension or meterlessly when done meaty
  • Combos into 2P 684H meterlessly if meatied

89632H:

  • Guard Crush duration 35F
  • Active frames groups: start 3+3+3, midpoint 2+1, ending 1+2
  • Usually hits on frame 21 against standing opponents
  • If the opponent is Giovanna and she is in a neutral standing state this move hits on frame 23 instead, but her proximity guard animation raises her hurtbox such that the 4th set of active frames will connect. This has no known practical consequences, but one of the notable quirks is it gives Giovanna a more generous window to IB this move in situations where she can return to her neutral standing state


j.89632H:

  • Active frames groups: start 4+5+5, midpoint 2+1, ending 1+2
  • Has 20 active frames unlike its grounded counterpart oddly

Fantastic and easy-to-use setplay tool, especially near the corner. Can run behind it with relative safety since it's incredibly hard for some characters to deal with. Easily set up after 2D, throw (and OTG 5H), or corner combos ending in 684H. Since it stops traveling upon reaching the corner it can enable meterless combos off of throw.

  • Affected by Security Level and resets it to Level 1 on use. More Levels = farther travel distance, more hits, less recovery, better knockdown properties, and stronger projectile clash properties.
    • Gives a soft knockdown at level 2 and a hard knockdown at level 3.
  • The projectile doesn't have a hitbox until frame 57 at all security levels.
  • Thunderbird's ability to clash with and negate other projectiles improves with security level.

The level 3 version of this move causes a special hard knockdown state that allows OTG hits to continue combos without causing the usual OTG auto tech. At full screen this knock down allows Goldlewis to close the gap and re-establish some pressure. Mostly useful as a meaty for chip damage/tension drain or as an anti-zoning tool, but it's generally too slow to use on reaction. At Security Level 2 and 3 Skyfish can be cancelled by pressing S during the animation. This can be used to avoid being punished by air approaches if the opponent jumps over Skyfish on reaction.

  • Affected by Security Level. More levels = more bullets.
  • Easily cancels out other projectiles.
  • Decent chip damage on block.
  • Will eat your opponent's tension bar if they FD to avoid the chip damage.

Goldlewis pulls his arm back before delivering an uppercut. When close to the opponent this move will score a Clean Hit, indicated by a small animation. Can be performed with the listed motion or a 360 for the same damage and startup.

Inputting up to two more circles after the first increases the move's startup and damage. The cutscene after the wind-up animation will indicate a successful 720 (glasses twinkle) or 1080 (glasses twinkle then break).

When fully churned, the Clean Hit version is the second most damaging super in the game behind Heavenly Potemkin BusterGGST Potemkin Heavenly Potemkin Buster.pngGuard:

Goldlewis can cancel the startup into a Purple RC for only 50% tension, using the long period of invincibility of the super to avoid meaties - though do note that once the Purple RC starts up, you become vulnerable again. For these purposes, the 1080 version is preferred since it has more frames before the superflash.

Actionable post super freeze after 27 frames

Goldlewis targets the corner behind the opponent with a static aiming reticle and returns to neutral. After a delay, a multi-hitting column projectile appears that travels back towards him. Does not track the opponent.

Security Levels increases the projectile's duration, travel distance and number of hits. The laser travels (roughly) halfscreen at level 1, a bit over halfscreen at level 2, and fullscreen at level 3.

This setplay super is commonly used to checkmate the opponent in the late game. If you can't land a super wallbreak, Positive Bonus will almost guarantee a chance to use Burn It Down.
