Kanji Tatsumi


This page is Kanji Tatsumi's "Resource Dump" page. This page is to be used to indiscriminately store just about any pieces of gameplay information that anyone may have that exists about this character, to make for a catalog of preserved content that can (and probably should) be fully realized and transcribed onto main character pages after review.

For simplicity's sake; anything you would want pinned in your character channel or character Discord can go here, such as:

  • Character Discord pins
  • Links or transcriptions of external personal documents and / or Dustloop User Docs
  • Tech videos, especially from Twitter hashtags
  • One-off or niche combo routes
  • Set-ups (for pressure, mix-ups, okizeme, or setplay)
  • Video analyses of matches and sets

If more opinionated works are posted, such as match-up charts, it is highly recommended that you include accreditation to the creator and any other important specifics (such as ordering or et cetera), so that readers can evaluate the sourcing. To readers, also note that this means you should consume at your own discretion. Not all strategy or reasoning may be fully explained, tested, or viable, so either be sure to ask the creators any questions (if possible), or do your own research in training mode.


You can embed links to external documents or User Docs here.


You can embed videos of content here, preferably on generally permanent platforms such as YouTube, or via a direct embed.

Plain Text

Ideal Punish for each DP on RPS

Narukami - 2C

Yosuke - hold 2C and wait for counter whiff or 2C on reaction to counter

Chie- 2b on rps will catch the endlag of her parry

Kanji-2c but any starter will be good enough


Marie-2b or 5c

Margaret- Jump or hop to bait it and punish with j.c, It's fatal recovery so big damage

Teddie and Naoto- counter dps just hold 2c or punish on reaction

Yukiko- 2b

Ken and Koro-hop j.c


Labrys-on block can't be punished? instant block allows for 2b punish, roll on reaction also allows for 2b aswell, roll on rps allows for 2c punish


Aigis-microdash 2c

Adachi-after blocking overhead hit, hop the low and punish with j.c, roll on rps allows for 2c punish

Liz-hop and j.c




Rise-2c, or jump over when you see counter and j.c

Shadow Kanji Flaws by Cyberman

Shadow Kanji Flaws

  • Worse auto combo.
    • Regular Kanji's auto has much better usage and better for RPS as there's more pushback with Shadow's auto. This is due to regular Kanji's 5AA pushing him forward.
  • Less Damage.
    • A character that revolves around RPS, you'll need to do more RPS scenarios. Which adds another flaw you'll have to deal with. You also may finally land that command grab and the opponent may have a pixel left due to less damage. In a sense with this, it lets the opponent take more risks.
  • Frenzy combos for Shadow Kanji require a lot of meter compared to other shadow characters to do damage.
    • This is due to his long animations ranging from air dive, command grab, gotcha, etc. You need a minimum of 59 meter to do chair super to command grab super. Its a mess that doesn't benefit him at all to where normal Kanji can get that damage and more with OMB.
    • Normal Kanji also has unburstable combos anyway.
  • Since Kanji is prone to getting locked down in the corner, you'll most likely have to use your burst to where you won't use your Frenzy.
    • Basically you're stuck with a handicapped Kanji in ways doing less damage overall
  • Have to be more conservative with meter.

Overall, he's the worst shadow by a margin and worse than normal Kanji in ways. Especially where most of the cast already outclasses him. But as always, this is always in theory from experience and you can still win/rob rounds.

Oki Pros and Cons

Lightning Oki
+Better mix
-Requires proper spacing, missing could result in losing a persona card
-Opponent has more time to think
-Persona moves are locked out till 4th bolt/time expires

Cruel attack oki
+Additional confirmed damage
+Opponent has less time to think
-Mix is limited to rps
