Overview

Overview

Bedman? is an unorthodox fighter whose gameplan is centered around its unique character mechanic, error 6E. A sort of reinterpretation of the Déjà VuGGXRD Bedman DejaVu.pngGuardStartupRecoveryTotal 30Advantage- mechanic it had in its previous iteration, using one of its three main special moves (call 4BAGGST Bedman 236P.pngGuardAllStartup16RecoveryTotal 46Advantage-11, call 4B3GGST Bedman 236S.pngGuardAllStartup14Recovery24Advantage-12, and call 4B9GGST Bedman 236H.pngGuardAll (Guard Crush)Startup24~38Recovery23Advantage+3) will "queue" a followup attack that comes out automatically after 3 seconds. This, along with its 8-way air dash, makes Bedman a tricky character to fight as and against.

Bedman has 3 primary special moves that it shifts between for different screen positions and combines them to create a powerful offense and neutral gameplan, given that it doesn't block or get hit. The powerful follow-ups to Bedman's special moves are removed if this happens, so you must play carefully and evasively or risk losing your strongest tools.

Once an error is queued up, Bedman's offense and neutral are both pushed over the top as it allows for long block strings, mixups, and potent offense from further ranges. call 4BAGGST Bedman 236P.pngGuardAllStartup16RecoveryTotal 46Advantage-11 can help fill gaps between normals to allow automatic specials to play and is great at controlling space in neutral. call 4B3GGST Bedman 236S.pngGuardAllStartup14Recovery24Advantage-12 is a consistent combo ender and OTG tool to set up an explosive error 6E follow-up. call 4B9GGST Bedman 236H.pngGuardAll (Guard Crush)Startup24~38Recovery23Advantage+3 allows for plus frames and the most powerful error 6E special in pressure with a Guard Crush attached to both parts. Enhance Bedman's offense with call 13CGGST Bedman 632146S 2.pngGuardStartup4RecoveryTotal 14Advantage- to turn these already strong follow-ups into devastating ones.

Despite Bedman's powerful offense when set up, that required setup is a major weakness of the character. It takes the use of a special for it to gain access to its most powerful options, meaning that without an error 6E follow-up, Bedman's threat level is significantly lower as it must rely on metered options to continue pressure, go for higher-risk options, or opt to end its offense prematurely in order to stay safe.

Bedman is an unconventional character for players who want to run a game plan of controlling/navigating neutral, waiting for the proper setup, and then smothering the competition.

 Bedman? is an unusual character who switches between cautious space control and unique pressure via automatically activated attacks.
Pick if you like Avoid if you dislike
  • Complex and tricky pressure, with a variety of high/lows and frametraps that are easy to chain together.
  • Improvising combos on the fly to take advantage of error 6E's automatic followups
  • Projectiles and disjoints that can threaten a significant area.
  • A unique movement option that gives you access to mixups and safe disengagement from pressure.
  • Playing characters that have little sidekicks, whose extra animations create visual clutter that can confuse opponents and distract from possible mixups.
  • Generally weak defense, with buttons on the slower side and only a metered reversal.
  • Labbing combos and pressure routes that have to account for automatic follow-up attacks.
  • A "2-step neutral" that requires setups/taking risks in order to reach the character's true offensive potential
  • Occasional inability to convert off your best pokes at long range.
  • Playing characters that are literally furniture, whose large size opens them up to easier punish opportunities.


Unique Mechanic: error 6E

After performing call 4BAGGST Bedman 236P.pngGuardAllStartup16RecoveryTotal 46Advantage-11, call 4B3GGST Bedman 236S.pngGuardAllStartup14Recovery24Advantage-12, or call 4B9GGST Bedman 236H.pngGuardAll (Guard Crush)Startup24~38Recovery23Advantage+3, Bedman enters the "error 6E" state, and will perform an automatic followup attack after a 3-second delay (180 frames). Each of the aforementioned specials produce a different follow-up attack that closely mimics their original properities.

In addition, call 0x$0.20GGST Bedman 214P.pngGuard-Startup-RecoveryTotal 30Advantage- will bypass the delay and instantly perform the attack, while call 0x$1.00GGST Bedman 214K.pngGuard-Startup-RecoveryTotal 24Advantage- will reset the timing to 3 seconds.

The error 6E state is removed after being hit or blocking an attack. If an area transition occurs while Bedman is in the error 6E state, the timer is reset back to 3 seconds.

If an error 6E move has already started coming out, then blocking will not make it disappear, only getting hit will. During call 13CGGST Bedman 632146S 2.pngGuardStartup4RecoveryTotal 14Advantage-, even getting hit will not stop the projectiles once they are out.
8-Way Air Dash

Bedman cannot double jump, and has an 8-way air dash instead of the normal horizontal air dash. This can be performed by holding the dash button with any direction or inputting the same direction in the air twice with the direction held being chosen for movement. If the button is not held Bedman will hover in the air briefly before falling to the ground.

  • This specific air dash can also be performed during a super jump.
  • There is a minimum time requirement of 12 frames in the hover state before Bedman can airdash.

Normal Moves

StartupThe time before an attack is active. Written startup values include the first active frame, so the startup on a frame chart will display one less square than the written value. Frames
Active The 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
Recovery The recovery of an attack refers to the amount of time an attacker must wait before they 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

Abnormal 5K as it's disjointed and the hitbox is slightly off compared to the animation, only covering the top of Bedman's spikes. Its many active frames and disjoint make it a solid counter poke in neutral and on defense, as well as a passable option at the start of a round. It's also used as a combo filler to route into call 4B9GGST Bedman 236H.pngGuardAll (Guard Crush)Startup24~38Recovery23Advantage+3 for optimal knockdowns.

  • 5K's animation is somewhat misleading as it relates to the hitbox. The move only hits at the top of the spikes, making it susceptible to being beaten by low-hitting pokes and even some low profile When a character's hurtbox is entirely beneath an opponent's attack. This can be caused by crouching, certain moves, and being short. moves like  Sol Badguy's Night Raid VortexGGST Sol 214S 1 Hitbox.pngGuardAllStartup15~31 [32]Recovery32 [26]Advantage-17.

A swipe that ground bounces the opponent and provides a wall bounce in the corner for very high reward, but midscreen launches the opponent too far to reliably combo after. Mostly functions as a pressure tool to safely frametrap the opponent while pushing them far enough away for Bedman to safely disengage.

While low risk and potentially high reward, 5H is a poor pressure tool with errors stored since it lacks the crucial ability of 2H to both stay close to the opponent and stall for errors to activate, but sometimes Bedman is forced to use 5H to stay safe against opponents that exploit the 3 frame gap between f.S/2S and 2H.

  • Hard Knockdown on Counter Hit.
  • 5H > 214K will reduce recovery by 1f.

Uncharged Dust

Universal overhead attack that's pretty fast. It can gatling from 5KGGST Bedman 5K.pngGuardAllStartup8Recovery14Advantage-7, 2KGGST Bedman 2K.pngGuardLowStartup6Recovery10Advantage-2, or c.SGGST Bedman cS.pngGuardAllStartup7Recovery10Advantage+1 for an unsafe mix-up that can be made safe on block or converted into a full combo on hit by using Roman Cancel or error 6E follow ups if timed well.



Charged Dust
  • Holding any upwards direction during the hitstop of Charged Dust will perform a Homing Jump:
    • Performing a Homing Jump puts the opponent into a unique high damaging air combo state and will cause an Area Shift afterwards, resetting character positions to neutral at slightly farther than round start distance.
    • Pressing any attack twice in a row without jump/dash canceling will perform a unique Finishing Blow attack, causing a hard knockdown and leaving Bedman at +23 instead of neutral (+-0).

Similar to uncharged Dust but is slow enough for opponents to reliably react to. On raw hit, it results in a very high damage Homing Jump combo. Charged Dust is primarily used for juggling during combos to add damage after a Red Roman Cancel launch or Counter Hit c.S, but can also be used for simple punishes on extremely unsafe moves.

Comboing into 6P is inconsistent after any more than a single 2P, but 2P has a high attack level for a jab, allowing it to combo directly into 236SGGST Bedman 236S.pngGuardAllStartup14Recovery24Advantage-12 even after multiple hits for a knockdown and an error to start Bedman's own offense.

Very useful for mixups with Hover Dash. Using 2K after j.H can be difficult to block, especially when making the number of hits j.H will have before landing ambiguous. Can also be used instead of j.H entirely, Hover Dashing down and forward to land and hit the opponent low when they expect multiple overheads. This mixup can be done in place of most j.H safejumps, and can even be done mid-blockstring after the opponent blocks an Error H.

Because of how many hits this move has and how long it takes to complete, it can be good for keeping the opponent blocking/in a combo long enough for an error 6E to activate. Just be sure to change the cancel timing when expecting a reversal or abare attempt.

  • The last hit launches the opponent. This can combo into 236SGGST Bedman 236S.pngGuardAllStartup14Recovery24Advantage-12 on any hit and 236HGGST Bedman 236H.pngGuardAll (Guard Crush)Startup24~38Recovery23Advantage+3 on a high air hit.

Bedman's best grounded poke.

2D has the same range as 2S and slightly more than f.S. This can be used as a long reaching poke that always gives reward on hit, either a hard knockdown or a combo into 236SGGST Bedman 236S.pngGuardAllStartup14Recovery24Advantage-12 at all ranges. It can even combo into 236HGGST Bedman 236H.pngGuardAll (Guard Crush)Startup24~38Recovery23Advantage+3 on Counter Hit at close or mid-range for Bedman's best knockdown.

Unlike 2S and f.S, Bedman does not have access to gatlings from this move, so its usefulness in blockstrings is limited.

An enormous universal anti-air button with generous upper-body invul that covers a large area in front and above Bedman, and the late active frames have a very generous anti cross-up hitbox. Has longer than average recovery for a 6P as compensation for its large hitbox.

  • Upper body invulnerability makes this an effective anti-air, with less risk than 5P but slower startup.
  • While effective and often necessary, it can be risky to use this move as a counterpoke due to its long recovery and Bedman's lack of fast, safe special cancels.
  • Grants soft knockdown on normal hit and hard knockdown on counter hit
  • Can usually combo into 236SGGST Bedman 236S.pngGuardAllStartup14Recovery24Advantage-12 on any hit, as well as 236HGGST Bedman 236H.pngGuardAll (Guard Crush)Startup24~38Recovery23Advantage+3 on counter hit, but both specials can potentially miss if this move hits an extended hurtbox.

Slow, high damage overhead that is special cancelable.

Its slow speed makes it fairly reactable but can be a powerful tool when mixed up with PRC and Error 6E during pressure. Unfortunately, there is no disjoint, which means the opponent can sometimes trade or outright beat this move.

6H also sees use as a combo tool from c.S and 5K air hit, as well as from counterhit c.S.

  • Ground bounces the opponent on hit, and also causes a Hard Knockdown upon the opponent landing.
  • 6H > 214K is -6 on block, saving 10 frames of recovery.

A slow but extremely active multi-hitting jump-in attack that can hit deep, beating 6Ps, commonly used after a hover dash.

Each hit must be blocked high, making this move a fantastic mixup tool as Bedman can vary the number of hits depending on its height and downward velocity, though it can sometimes be difficult to combo into grounded buttons if hit to high up, in those cases, cancelling straight into j.236S leaves Bedman? in a good spot.

  • Every hit of this move can be airdash canceled or cancelled into j.D, allowing Bedman to further complicate its aerial mixup game or to safely hover dash away back to neutral/zoning.
  • As a multi-hit move, this can be helpful in stalling for errors to activate in pressure.

Bedman slams directly down to the ground. Generally a pretty situational move, all things considered.

j.D stalls Bedman in the air, so it can be used as an option to bait anti-airs.

  • Strangely, can be jump cancelled on landing after hitting an opponent.
  • Ground bounces airborne opponents.

White Wild Assault: Strike and Projectile invulnerability during startup, but cannot be canceled. Causes Guard Crush on block. See here for more info on Wild Assault types.


An invulnerable on frame 9, plus on block advancing strike with a very large horizontal hitbox at the cost of 50% Burst. If fully charged, go straight to your win condition by doing c.S > 236HS at close range or 5K > 236HS at longer ranges on hit, or go for strike throw on block. However, getting hit before the invul starts takes away 50% burst and gets you counter hit. It can also miss against jumping opponents leaving you in a bad spot due to its recovery.

It can also be used in block strings to further stall for automatic error followups, usually doing it after 2H while error 6E H needs a little more time to come out.

  • Uncharged version catches jumps after blocked 2H.
  • Causes guard crush on block.
  • Drains 7.14% of the opponent's Burst Gauge on hit or block.
  • Applies Hard Knockdown when launching or when used to Wall Break.

Also referred to as Malfunction by the community.

A slow, chargeable, short-ranged swing with Bedman's broken arm that causes an explosion. A very strong pressure and combo tool.

236H is interruptible in blockstrings, but rewarding, as it is both plus on block and stores a very strong error for Bedman. This move is only +3 when uncharged, so it is difficult to completely reset pressure without spending either tension or burst. But, it can be used in combination with errors in pressure to make it gapless or to even give you enough time to charge this move, giving enough advantage to continue with very strong pressure after.

Launches very high on hit, resulting in a hard knockdown. Ending a combo with this move gives access to Bedman's strongest advantage state by allowing a safejump into it's best pressure string, utilizing the error stored by 236H.

Resets the timer on Bedman's currently stocked error 6E attack to 3 seconds.

A situational option that lets Bedman vary the timing of its error pressure. Because of how easy it can be to lose a stocked error, and because using another special move will change/reset the error, holding onto one for longer is rarely that useful. As a result, this move is mostly used to stall in the air and reduce the recovery of slower normals.

During call 13C, Bedman gets a 10% damage buff to all of its moves and a 10% defense buff from damage. More importantly, all error 6E follow-ups gain enhanced properties on both hit and block, trigger a Wall Break if the opponent is near the Wall, grant a Hard Knockdown on Area Shift, and are unburstable, similar to Overdrives. Finally, Bedman's 6E projectiles no longer disappear when Bedman is hit.

When used properly, this super can change the flow of the game on a dime or further cement a victory.

The low total duration of call 13C's install animation leaves Bedman fairly advantageous on block after 5H and 6H, which allows for its activation during pressure sequences. It can also be used in combos as a pseudo-Roman Cancel, which allows links such as 5H > call 13C > c.S in the corner for great damage.

The biggest drawback of call 13C is its very punishing Tension Penalty duration, which locks Bedman out of gaining Tension for almost 8 seconds (460F). However, this drawback can be mitigated by triggering a Wall Break and getting Positive Bonus A special state in Strive that automatically generates tension, reduces meter penalty, as well as other buffs when a player breaks the wall. shortly after activating call 13C, preferably with one of the Error 6E follow-ups, for both knockdown pressure and meter gain.

  • Buff lasts for 5 seconds (300 frames).
  • Install's short total duration means it can be used to reduce the recovery of moves with long durations, even making certain moves slightly plus on block. The full cancel data is available here.

Bedman's only invincible reversal To perform an attack as soon as possible after getting knocked down or leaving hitstun/blockstun. and a go-to combo ender for when the opponent has been wall-splatted. As a reversal, call 4CC is on the slower side, making it vulnerable to safe jumps and even some grounded attacks that can recover in time to block. Although not as effective as Faust's overdrive, it can be Roman Canceled before the super flash to beat meaties and throws.
