Overview
Template-info.png This page has been marked for cleanup.
This can be for a variety of reasons including but not limited to: spelling mistakes, unnecessary information, poor formatting, and other metrics per common sense reasoning.
Consider helping rewrite it.
Ambox notice.png While Junpei's page here may be undergoing clean-up, there are some rather fleshed-out resources covering the character in this version:

Junpei gitbook: https://maxx-sev.gitbook.io/junpei-guide-p4u2/
Information from these resources will be transcribed and expanded upon here in due time, or you could possibly help transcribe it yourself.

Overview

Junpei is a rushdown character with a momentum-based gimmick in the form of his Baseball meter, and when given enough momentum, can use his unique install and win condition, Victory Cry, in order to deal more damage, gain unique hit properties, open up new combo routes, and more. Junpei also rocks the neutral thanks to his good B/C/D normals, which helps lead to combos that push him closer and closer to obtaining his install. He's a force to be reckoned with when he pops Victory Cry. Unfortunately, without it, he's considered to be one of the worst characters in the game with the fact his standard combos don't last long, his damage output isn't very high, and losing any momentum can be potentially dangerous for him. These downsides make it all the more worthwhile to obtain Victory Cry, since the install goes a long way in helping Junpei get an edge over his opponent.
"Tah-da-da-daaaaa! I'm da man!"
Lore:Although the SEES leader's right-hand man Junpei Iori seems like a lecherous goof on the surface, his true nature is that of a kindhearted, driven individual who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals. Despite some heartache and grief caused by either or including his inferiority complex, a strained relationship with his father and the death of Chidori Yoshino, his one true love, Junpei proves time and time again that he's capable of pulling through during the direst of situations, and that he earns his self-given title of Da Man. After his adventures with SEES and his time in high school drew to a close, Junpei took up a position as a little league baseball coach, finally becoming the leader he had always dreamed of being. He is drawn into the events involving the Red Mist after falling asleep on the train and missing his stop, winding up in Inaba and pledging to discover the mysteries of the small town with the help of his old teammates.
Playstyle
Junpei Iori is a Rushdown/Momentum based character that starts out relatively weak, but once he gets 10 runs with his baseball gauge he powers up and gains access Clean Hits, giving him very high combo potential.
Pros Cons
  • Victory Cry: Once he's got 10 runs Junpei's becomes an infinitely more dangerous threat as he can convert nearly every touch into big damage and he can either opt in for extra corner carry or a safejump, and in the corner he can get some great Okizeme with 5D after a Clean Hit 214B. On top of that he gains constant HP and SP regen.
  • Solid Neutral tools: Moves such as Deathbound, j.D, 2D, and j.2D give Junpei some decent fullscreen options and allow for a pretty good defensive/turtling strategy. While normals such as 5C, 5B, and j.B let Junpei play more aggressive when he needs to.
  • Projectile Reflecting: All of Junpei's B normals can reflect projectiles and it counts as a landing a hit with his bat meaning characters cannot mindlessly throw them out in neutral unless if they want to put you in Victory Cry. This even applies to certain character's DPs if they have projectile attribute Junpei can entirely nullify them.
  • Meter Proficient: Junpei not only gains meter at a very good rate in Victory Cry but he also doesn't need meter for any of his routes so he can freely spend it on whatever he needs.
  • Good Strike/Throw Game: With a fast 5F 5A and many ways of resetting pressure such as j.2A, 214B, or his solid dash cancel 5C Junpei can enforce a fairly decent strike/throw game plan that becomes especially extremely scary in Victory Cry as any wrong move leads to his previously mentioned high damage.
  • Victory Cry Reliant: Without 10 runs, Junpei is very underwhelming with very low damage, abysmal corner carry, and having few ways of getting a hard knockdown. This issue is made even more apparent against characters who can force scramble situations or are very hard to block due to how outs work in his baseball mechanic can make getting Victory Cry very rough. This issue however is basically fixed with Shadow as he can get the 10 runs off basically everything
  • Honest to a fault: Junpei's mixup game is very honest as he lacks genuine options outside of 5D Okizeme setups (which are only incredibly threatening in the corner) without taking a risk and going for an All Out Attack or gimmick. He scores most of his hits from his strike/throw, hard reads, and good whiff punishes in neutral.

Baseball Mechanic

Baseball "gauge"

Expand the text below for a TL;DR on Junpei's special, otherwise keep reading on for the full breakdown.

  • Junpei has a powerful install that he must fill his baseball gauge up to reach.
  • Landing hits with his bat attacks advances this gauge by loading the bases, and eventually earning him Runs. His supers cash out of loaded bases the best.
  • Even if his bat attacks are blocked, they add up to advance his gauge, but much slower.
  • Whiffing those same bat attacks adds up to setting back his progress, and getting hit by the opponent in any way sets back his progress even faster.
  • He can never lose his accumulated Runs from too many mistakes, only his other progression marks.
  • Junpei needs at least 10 Runs to activate Victory Cry and enable Clean Hits, and its effects stacks with every 10 additional Runs.
  • Clean Hits function similarly in principle to Sol Badguy's Clean Hits in +R; precision is rewarded with bonus combo potential, and they're hype.



Junpei's fighting style and attacks involve a unique gauge next to his SP Meter, which works similar to a baseball game. By connecting specific baseball moves (his B normals, his specials, or anything involving his baseball bat), he can fill up this meter and earn powerful buffs that strengthen himself and his attacks with Victory Cry.

  • Runs
    It's very important for Junpei maximize this meter as much as possible, as more runs can activate (or strengthen) Victory Cry with every 10th run. The amount of runs, maximum amount being 55, stay the same throughout the round and don't disappear with 3 outs, allowing Junpei to make a comeback. There are several offensive and defensive ways to earn a run:
  • Acquiring 3 bases and then hitting the opponent with baseball bat attacks
  • Clean Hits (Only available with Victory Cry)
  • Home Runs (Awards 1 run by itself and +1 for each base up to a maximum of 4 runs for a single Home Run)


  • Bases
    Similar to how baseball player has to travel three bases before returning home for a run, Junpei needs to fill all three bases and hit with a baseball attack in order to earn a run. Every time Junpei scores a base, all strikes and balls are reset. In order to earn a base Junpei needs to do the following:
  • Hitting the opponent with a baseball bat attack. (So for example, a combo with 3 swings will get 3 bases)
  • Hitting an incoming projectile with a baseball bat attack and reflecting it back as fireballs
  • Scoring 4 Balls


  • Balls (B) Junpei earns a ball on his meter for every bat attack that the enemy blocks. Hitting a Persona, Koromaru, or clashing with an opponent, will also grant a Ball to Junpei. Getting 4 balls will reset the meter but Junpei is rewarded with one base or run.
  • Strikes (S) Similar to baseball, Junpei will get a strike for every time he whiffs with a baseball bat attack. Getting 3 strikes will penalize Junpei with an out.
  • Outs (O) What all baseball players should avoid. Every time Junpei does something in the list below, he will receive an out (and reset the ball meter in the progress). Getting 3 outs will completely reset every meter except for his runs.
  • Taking damage. Junpei will only be punished with one Out every time he's in hitstun per combo.
  • Getting thrown. Luckily, teching a throw does not grant Junpei an Out.
  • Accumulating 3 Strikes.

Clean Hits

PING!!! You got it!
Get runs, win games

Now that you know how to get Runs and activate Victory Cry, let's learn how to use "Clean Hits".
Clean Hits are Junpei's strongest weapon and can only be used while in Victory Cry. It makes bat moves deal more damage, more hitstun and even adds different properties like wall bounces or slides. It's possible to Clean Hit with every attack that uses Junpei's bat. That includes his B normals, Special moves, and SP Skills, but you need to hit your opponent with specific spacing to make it work. You'll see the phrase "CLEAN HIT!" on the screen if you get it right, and the sound effect will also change.

Now let's see what Junpei gets if he Clean hits his attacks:

  • B Normals: More damage, added hitstun.
  • B+D: More damage, added hitstun, can be special canceled, opponent wall bounces if close to corner (possible to continue combo).
  • 236A/B: More damage, added hitstun, opponent will fly higher (possible to continue combo).
  • 214A/B: More damage, added hitstun, can be special canceled, opponent will slide forward (possible to continue combo or apply okizeme with 5D in the corner).
  • 236236A/B: Added hitstun, opponent will slide forward (possible to continue combo).

It's very important to get consistent with Clean Hits and learn how to confirm combos from them!

5D
  • Okizeme tool.

Trismegistus will hover for a while behind Junpei and then descend forward, aiming to kick the opponent. On hit or block, will repeat the animation two more times. Great as Okizeme after 214A/B Clean hit or Deathbound.


j.D
  • Slower okizeme tool.

Junpei will spin his arm, and then the Persona will attack. Similar to 5D, but longer startup. The angle Trismegistus flies depends on how high you jumped.
Air actions still possible after recovery.

2D

Trismegistus will fly to the air diagonally to hit his opponent. Covers a good amount of space, can be followed up with Deathbound on hit.


j.2D

Junpei will spin his arm and then the Persona will attack. Similar to 2D, but faster startup. The angle Trismegistus flies depends on how high you jumped.
Air actions still possible after recovery.

  • Air-to-air and combo filler.

Trismegistus will raise one of his arms and open his golden wing forward. Great as air-to-air and useful as combo tool since it leads to Deathbound with meter.

  • Combo filler in Victory Cry.

Junpei takes up a stance with invincibility, before swinging with his bat after another button is pressed. Relatively slow for an attack-type Furious Action. On Counter Hit, it's possible to follow up with the Awakening SP Skill. Doesn't require any specific inputs from A~D, every button will do the exact same thing.

While in Victory Cry, this move gains the Clean Hit property, which allows you to cancel it into other moves and causes a wall bounce if close to the corner. Extremely useful for combos in general.

Junpei's Guard Cancel Attack. It utilizes Junpei's 5AA animation and knocks the opponent away on hit. Good GC all around since it hardly whiffs.

All Versions

Junpei spins with his bat. The aerial version sends Junpei a bit forward while the grounded version spins in whichever direction you hold between 4 and 6. As Normal Junpei, it works as a combo ender and can be followed with Supers pretty easily for Homeruns. Unsafe on block.

While in Victory Cry, this move gains the Clean hit property and sends the opponent much higher than normal. Thanks to this, you can continue the combo in the corner.


236A
  • Quick but low hitstun.

Only used to finish ground combos as Normal Junpei so that he can connect the Inferno Homer SP Skill and get more Runs. Victory Cry 236A gives a safejump on Clean Hit in the corner.


236B
  • Slow, but more damage and hitstun.

Mostly used during combos or to finish them. Can be followed with Homerun Supers. In Victory Cry this special is one of the most important moves for Victory Cry combos. It launches the opponent high into the air allowing you to continue the combo in the corner.


236AB
  • Best of both worlds.

SB Version has more hits and deals the most damage. Great for corner combos.

All Versions
  • All versions have armor.

Junpei uses the other side of his bat to hit his opponent. It's possible to charge the B and SB Versions of the move, this will increase the startup but also it's guard frames, making it useful to bait attacks. While in Victory Cry, this move gains the Clean Hit property and causes a slide on hit. Thanks to this, Junpei can further extend his combos and even get an Okizeme off of it with 5D in the corner.


214A
  • Fast but unsafe.
  • Armor broken by lows.

Mostly used to finish combos for a knockdown outside of Victory Cry or as an extender during Victory Cry.


214B
  • Slow, but safe even on on IB.
  • Chargeable, increases startup and guard point.
  • Armor broken by lows.

Deals more damage when compared to the A version. Mostly used to bait attacks or during combos while in Victory Cry.


214AB
  • Plus on normal block.
  • Chargeable, increases startup and guard point.
  • Armor also works against lows.

SB Version is faster and deals the same amount of damage when compared to the B version. +1 on block. Useful to reset pressure and bait attacks.

All Versions
  • Fatal recovery.
  • Very unsafe on block.

Junpei runs and jumps towards his opponent while channeling his inner shagster! Mostly used as a mixup tool since it can be both an overhead and a low, this opens many possibilities with One More Cancel. It also leads to big damage with One More Burst if Junpei's in Victory Cry.


236C
  • Only hits low.
  • Has chest invul.

Mostly used to surprise the opponent expecting the overhead hit of the D version.


236D
  • Slower than the C version.
  • First hit is an overhead, second hit is a low.
  • Has chest invul.

Very hard to block if spaced because the two hits are hard to distinguish.


236CD
  • Hits high, then low.
  • Can be feigned by holding C+D.
  • Has guard point.

The feign is mostly used for midscreen conversions when in Victory Cry.

    • C version dives closer to Junpei.
    • D version dives farther from Junpei.
  • SB version has better frame advantage.

Trismegistus will dive on his opponent. This move is mostly used in neutral game against zoning characters but it can be useful as a combo tool while in Victory Cry. Just be aware that if they block it, they can easily hit Trismegistus and take one Persona card from you.

Junpei's most practical SP Skill. Mostly used at the end of combos to score Homeruns for Victory Cry. The B version in particular is mostly used at the end of combos as a finisher for Homeruns.

Similar to Junpei's Inferno Homer. The only difference here is that Trismegistus will throw a fireball for Junpei to hit. The fireball has a hitbox and can make opponents fly right where Junpei wants them. If the opponent manages to dodge the fireball, Junpei can also hit the fireball back twice as fast aiming to hit his adversary. This Super can score Homeruns too.

  • Activates after getting 10 runs
  • Carries over to later rounds if successfully installed
  • Max amount of runs is 55

Victory Cry Install. The only cost to activate this Super is to get 10 Runs. Once active, it will stay active for the whole match.

This is Junpei's strongest weapon. Upon activation, Junpei gains the Clean Hit property: Clean Hits will improve his overall skill with the bat making every bat move deal more damage, hitstun and even cause special effects such as wall bounces or slides. To get a Clean Hit, you must hit your opponent with specific spacing. You'll see the word "CLEAN HIT" pop up on the screen and the sound effect will be different if you do it right.

Besides Clean Hits, Victory Cry still has one more ability: Junpei's HP and SP will regenerate constantly over time. Each time you get 10 Runs (10, 20, 30 and so on), his regen will grow stronger, making him gain more SP and heal more HP over time.
This also applies to his damage using the bat during Special Moves/Supers: The more Runs he score, the more damage he'll get.

  • C version deals the least damage but is the easiest to time.
  • SB version deals insane damage but the timing is within 1-2 frames.
  • D version is somewhere in between the two in terms of damage and difficulty
  • All buttons give Home Run if timed correctly.
  • Fun fact; there's one frame that allows you to combine the damage from both Home Run and the whiff, resulting in an extra ~170 damage tacked onto the move.

Guard point on activation. Trismegistus will fly through the screen aiming to catch the opponent. On hit, he will fly back for Junpei to hit his target, which the player must time in order to land the hit. Timing for this super varies between using the C/D/SB versions. Generally, higher the button, tighter the timing but higher the damage. Early hit still deals ok damage, and whiffing will still result in a small amount of damage. Landing the Home Run will deal a lot of minimum damage (roughly 1750 with SP), making it great to end combos with so long as you time it right. Can also do a pretty good job at punishing some moves from fullscreen. All around useful SP Skill.

  • Fully invincible until after Trismegistus flies off the screen.

Junpei will crouch and Trismegistus will fly horizontally through the screen aiming to grab his opponent. He will then fly through the space and throw the poor thing down to the earth for Junpei to hit. Your regular over-the-top instant kill made even better because it's Junpei.

Can be useful to punish some moves such as Narukami's Ziodyne since it's surprisingly fast for an IK.
