Introduction

P-1 Climax Nickname: "Captain Ressentiment!"
Persona: Jiraiya
Arcana: The Magican
Backstory:

  • Yosuke Hanamura, affectionately nicknamed "Brosuke", is the first party member Yu Narukami bonds with during his time in Inaba. Due his father's manager position at the Junes superstore, Yosuke was forced to move from the big city to "the boonies," leaving him resenting his feelings of boredom and isolation. After accepting his shadow, he tries his best to be the best 'partner' he can be. In the P-1 Climax, he is a speedy fighter with a pair of kunai and his persona Jiraiya, master of the wind.

Strengths/Weaknesses

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Unmatched speed, mobility, and aerial combat abilities.
  • Combos now end in hard knockdown, making it easier to maintain offensive momentum.
  • Exceptional neutral game, arguably the best in the entire game.
  • Gliding creates unreactable cross-ups and allows him to bait (and punish) opponents safely.
  • Capable of inflicting Confusion via Tentarafoo and Poison with SB kunai and throws.
  • Improved Sukukaja grants him a tremendous boost in damage.
  • Has one of, if not the best, DPs in the game.
  • Low HP.
  • Mostly a close range fighter.
  • Loses knockdown combo routes and access to Supers when Persona broken.


Air Actions

Thanks to Jiraiya's speed and aerodynamic abilities, Yosuke is able to chain multiple specials while in the air. He can string these together during combos, to mix up his aerial approach or bait anti-airs. After performing certain ground specials or air specials, Yosuke can preform some specials with a simple command, using 4 or 6 and the desired action button (A / B for Moonsault or C / D for Flying Flash Cut)
The moves that count as air actions are:
Skill Name Number of Times Simple Command
Moonsault 3 Times (4 in Sukukaja) 4 or 6 A/B
Crescent Slash
Mirage Slash Once
Flying Flash Cut Once 4 or 6 C/D
Flying Kunai Once


Gliding / Fastfall

Yosuke has the ability to Glide or Fastfall in the air due to a kara cancel (cancelling the start up on 1 move into another) with jAB into Air Turn (A+C) during an airdash. Gliding will allow Yosuke to keep his air dash momentum and fall at steeper angle. It also helps to glide backwards (Jump > A+C to turn backwards > Airdash > Glide) to help get jD out safely or just to escape back to neutral. Gliding helps Yosuke move around the screen faster than any character (He's fast even without it). It allows him to block while air dashing with no delay, come in at angles that are hard for certain characters to 2B (Chie, Akihiko, Mitsuru, etc), and to navigate projectiles or Naoto's traps.
So the notation would be (Find whatever suits you, there’s a ton of different methods):
Jump > 66jAB~A+C

5AA 370 HLA 9 4 13 -1 Body
5AAA 1080 HLA 10 3 37 + 12 After Landing -37 Body

5A is a fast poke. One of the three most common starters for Yosuke. Great hitbox, can anti-air at some heights. Useful for combos, stagger pressure, and just about everything. Jump-cancellable on hit and block.


5AA is less negative on block than 5A. Used for stagger pressure. Jump-cancellable on block.


5AAA sends the opponent flying toward Yosuke with a vacuum effect on hit. Puts Yosuke into a special cancalable state. On block, this move sends Yosuke flying backwards, creating space.

5AA 300 HLA 4 4 14 [22]* -3 Body
5AAA 300 HLA 4 - [22]* - Body
5AAAA 330 HLA 4 - [39]* - Body

  • ( ) = If blocked

5B

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
170, 85x2 HLA 9 2, 2, 2 12 0 [+2] Body

  • Dash Cancel is -4 on block

Yosuke spins his kunai upwards, hitting multiple times. Dash-cancellable on hit and block, jump-cancellable on hit only. Good pressure tool since it's even on block, allowing for throw set-ups or extensions.

2A

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
140 L 6 4 9 -2 Foot

A fast low-hitting poke. One of the three most common starters for Yosuke. Great for stagger pressure and punishing opponents for not blocking low.

2B

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
410 AUB 11 [10] 4 [2] 26 -15 [-13] Body

  • Dash Cancel is -4 on block

Yosuke swings his kunais in a cross formation. Amazing anti-air as the hitbox extends behind his head as well as having tremendous vertical range. Jump- and dash- cancellable on block.

j.A

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
j.A 170 HA 7 [5] 3 13 - Head
j.AA 290 HA 8 2 12 - Head

A quick kunai slice, mainly used his in stagger pressure, mix-ups, and glide okizeme.

j.B

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
j.B 290 HA 10 2 13 - Head
j.BB 260 HA 10 [8] 3 11 - Head

Yosuke swings his kunai downwards. Occupies a lot of space due to the large hitbox. One of the three most common starters for Yosuke.

j.A+B

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
380 HA 15 4 30 - Head

Upward swing with his kunai. Used in air combos. Kara-cancelling j.AB allows Yosuke to glide (don't whiff j.AB or you'll be sad).

j.AB is also counted as an overhead from a hop, allowing you to check opponents who are crouch blocking. There are some theories as to why, but the primary one is that the game counts it as a special (Mirage Slash still counts as a low from a hop).

Sweep

2A+B

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
450 L 11 [10] 3 [3] 28 [27] -16 [-15] Foot

Yosuke does a sliding sweep with his kunais hitting low. Very unsafe on block. Special cancelable on hit.

All Out Attack

A+B

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
300 H 28 1 35 -17 Body

Yosuke does a short hop, swinging both kunai downwards from above, hitting overhead. Considered to be in aerial state during the middle of the animation. Very unsafe on block and very rewarding on hit. If the first hit of the All Out Attack is One More! Cancelled, the opponent will be left in spinstate and vulnerable to an unblockable reset.

Dodge

B+D

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
Catch - - - 49 Total - - -
Attack 500 - 1 28 6 - Body

Yosuke taunts the opponent. If Yosuke is hit, he then proceeds to trip the opponent, causing knockdown. While the attack can not be cancelled, it does leave Yosuke in a great position for a follow-up pressure. Will counter any attack including overheads, lows, throws, command grabs and unblockables. Has a large number of active frames and a deceptively good aerial hitbox, making it difficult to safe-jump, and it will blow up most pressure strings, but resist the urge to spam Yosuke's DP.

Guard Cancel Attack

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute

Yosuke guards an attack then does an invulnerable downward swing hitting the opponent and knocking them backwards.


Skill Attacks

Dash Spring

SB 70, 40x11 HLA 12 To Ground 35 Total - Projectile

  • Can be used as a follow up from any other air actions, but is considered an "ender".
  • Sukukaja Buff: Yosuke can do any air action after throwing the kunai.

Yosuke launches backwards into the air throwing 6 kunais down onto his opponent. Unlike P4A, the kunai do not lift the opponent into the air, but rather just knock the opponent towards the ground, making it a good combo ender or keep-away tool. A version kunai are thrown in a 70° angle, and B Version is thrown at a 55° angle while popping Yosuke up a little higher. SB version kunai are thrown in a 55° angle and inflict poison, but Yosuke can no longer do any other air action after the move (While not in Sukukaja).
