Overview

Yosuke Hanamura is the dedicated PixieA character with powerful movement options, short range, small hurtbox, and low health. character of Persona Ultimax. In exchange for dealing mediocre damage and having the defenses of wet tissue paper, Yosuke has unmatched mobility, excellent pressure, and a suite of useful defensive tools.

The first thing that needs to be talked about with Yosuke is his peerless mobility. He is extremely fast on both the ground and the air, having a fast run speed and numerous air options. As shown below, Yosuke has a number of unique air actions he can perform with his specials, allowing him to zip around the screen with abandon. Yosuke's opponents may find it difficult to lay their hands on him without going for riskier options. On offense, 5AA is jump-cancellable and loops into itself on pressure easily, allowing Yosuke to go for resets or threaten overheads in the corner. Yosuke also has a slow unblockableP4Arena Yosuke Tentarafoo.pngGuard:

special, or even his stellar full-body counter Furious ActionNo results. Yosuke has great okizeme options too, allowing him to continually snowball his knockdowns into further reward and somewhat offsetting his low damage. With his wide variety of neutral tools, strong offense and high mobility, Yosuke has a lot going for him.

It's important to stress that Yosuke's fragility can be an issue. While he has more than enough tools to survive on defense, his 8500 health can limit the chances he gets to escape pressure. Persona Ultimax can be a high-damage game if your opponent has the resources for it, so Yosuke might find himself losing a round off of one bad trade. As a result, Yosuke likes to a play a keepaway game to force his opponents to come to him, which can backfire if you make the wrong decision in neutral. If you can come to terms with that, then Yosuke will reward you with lots of consistency and a very fun kit.
Playstyle
Yosuke Hanamura is a speedy character that likes to dance around neutral until he can safely land a hit.
Pros Cons
  • Unmatched Speed: Yosuke is the unparalleled fastest character in the game on raw movement data alone, along with great mobility options and good frame data.
  • Easy Hard Knockdown: Basically every combo ends in Mirage Slash, which gives a hard knockdown and allows for a consistent okizeme game.
  • Great Neutral: Yosuke has a very good neutral game because of him being able to both play the offensive and sit back and zone, while also having simple and easy confirms into an offense from many hits.
  • Status Ailments: Yosuke can inflict Panic and Poison onto his opponent via Tentarafoo and SB Flying Kunai / Ground Throw, respectively.
  • Sukukaja: Yosuke's has an install super (214214C/D) that gives him numerous buffs to his offense and mobility, upping his pressure capabilities and damage in combos while also giving him access to another super.
  • Amazing DP: Yosuke has probably the best counter DP in the game, due to the counter attack hitting very quickly and reliably, while also giving Yosuke knockdowns.
  • Low Average Damage: While he gets plenty of knockdowns by nature of his specials, Yosuke's average combo damage is relatively low, even with resource usage.
  • Low HP: Yosuke is in the lower health bracket of the game with just 8500, limiting the number of touches he can survive.

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 perform 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 3 Times

  • Jump cancelable on hit or on block.
  • Hold 4 to prevent cancel into 5AA.

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.


  • Jump cancelable on hit or on block.

5AA is less negative on block than 5A. Used for stagger pressure and is a very good starter along with being jump-cancellable on block. Unlike most 5AA's in the game, this one can actually be gatlinged into 2A for even better blockstrings.


  • Launches grounded opponents.

5AAA sends the opponent flying toward Yosuke with a vacuum effect on hit. Puts Yosuke into a special cancelable state. On block, this move sends Yosuke flying backwards, creating enough space to be safe. Yosuke recovers before he hits the ground, allowing him to continue combos with going into a j.B, for example. Consistently hits people already airborne during the initial 5A and 5AA. When doing the full Auto Combo in the corner, it is possible to link a dash 5C afterwards and continue the combo with the extra meter gained from the Kunai. This is a very tight link.

Yosuke's old autocombo from Persona 4 Arena.


  • Jump cancelable on hit or on block.

5AA is basically the same as regular Yosuke's 5AA but with a different hitbox, extending more forwards and less upwards.


  • Launches grounded opponents.

5AAA is different from regular Yosuke's 5AAA as it involves Yosuke uppercutting with his knife and launching the opponent directly upwards, as opposed to backwards with regular Yosuke. Besides this, it has generally the same effects such as having low enough recovery to link a j.B.

  • Can chain into itself up to 2 times, even on whiff.

A fast low-hitting poke at 6 frames which is faster than most 2As, the majority being 7 frames. One of the three most common starters for Yosuke. Great for stagger pressure and punishing opponents for not blocking low. Sees use in a few combos, mainly to pick up after j.2C in SB Flying Flash Cut combos or in Fatal routes. Can also be gatling from 5AA unlike most 2As. Sukukaja grants this move the ability to be dash canceled on hit and on block.

  • Dash cancelable. -4 on block.
  • Hits 3 times.
  • Jump cancelable on hit.

Yosuke spins his kunai upwards, hitting multiple times. Dash-cancellable on hit and block, though the move is safer if not done, and jump-cancellable on hit only. Good pressure tool since it's only -2 on block, allowing for throw set-ups or extensions. Also a good starter being what most of Yosuke's higher damage combos are going to be starting with while also working as combo filler during gatling chains.

  • Dash cancelable. -4 on block
  • Jump cancelable on hit or on block
  • Hits behind

Yosuke swings his kunais in a cross formation. Universal air unblockable 2B anti-air, however this one is exceptionally good. The hitbox on this move is massive reaches very high up vertically and even reaches a bit behind him. Leads to a decent combo on air hit or an even better one when close enough to the corner. Jump and dash cancelable on both hit and on block making it a good move to use in blockstrings. In combos it is used mainly as filler, similar to 5B.

  • Double Jump cancelable on hit and on block.
  • Cancelable into itself on hit and on block.
  • Sukukaja Buff: Air Dash and Air Back Dash cancelable on hit and on block.

A quick kunai slice, mainly used in his stagger pressure and mixups. Generally inferior to j.B as a jump in but has the benefit of being faster. On hit or on block, it can continuously cancel into itself, constantly alternating between the animation and hitboxes of j.A and j.B. Not really used in combos as j.B is almost always better. Sukukaja grants this move the ability to be Air Dash canceled or Air Back Dash canceled on hit and on block.

  • Jump cancelable on hit and on block

  • Sukukaja Buff: Air Dash and Air Back Dash cancelable on hit and on block

Yosuke swings his kunai downwards. This move has a bigger hitbox than j.A at the cost of being a bit slower. Better as a jump in due to the bigger hitbox and also higher untech time on CH. Just like j.A, on hit or on block, Yosuke can continuously cancel into this move, also alternating between the animation and hitboxes of j.A and j.B. Used more in combos due to higher hitstun and more damage. Sukukaja grants this move the ability to be AIr Dash canceled or Air Back Dash canceled on hit and on block.

  • Jump cancelable on hit and on block
  • Alters Yosuke's air momentum.
  • Still considered an overhead during a hop.
  • Sukukaja Buff: Air Dash or Air Back Dash cancelable on hit and on block

Yosuke performs an upwards swing with his kunai. While performing the slash Yosuke halts his momentum and moves upwards slightly. This move is generally used during air strings with j.B to add on a bit more damage, or during routes in which goes into Flying Kunai after a j.A+B. This move, strangely, is also counted as an overhead from a hop, allowing Yosuke to catch 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). Sukukaja grants this move the ability to be Air Dash canceled or Air Back Dash canceled on hit and on block.

  • Universal Overhead.
  • Airborne for a few frames.

Yosuke does a short hop, swinging both kunai downwards from above, hitting overhead. Fairly standard All Out Attack. Has a long startup and long recovery. Considered to be in aerial state during the middle of the animation so it will be harder to be grabbed during the startup compared to other AOAs. Very unsafe on block and has decent reward on hit.

  • Universal Low
  • Low Profiles

Yosuke does a sliding sweep with his kunais hitting low. Reaches very far and is on the faster side of sweeps so combined with Yosuke's speed makes for an alright option to throw out. However, is it very unsafe if used on block so it is recommended to special cancel into something afterwards to avoid that. Very important tool when it comes to Yosuke's corner combos as it allows for an easy way to get the opponent airborne before comboing into Dash Spring. Unlike most Sweeps in the game, this move is actually not hop cancelable thus limiting Yosuke's options on block to just special and super cancels.

  • Displaces Jiraya a bit forward.
  • Jump cancelable on hit.
  • Sukukaja Buff: Dash cancelable on hit and on block.
  • Sukukaja Buff: Jump cancelable on block/

Jiraiya performs a forward kick. This move has a very big hitbox and is decently fast. Due to it launching the opponent horizontally on air hit, it ends up having a lot of untech time. This makes it a very useful move when it comes to Yosuke's corner combos. Depending on the distance to the corner, Yosuke can either combo into a hop A Flying Kunai, or a jump back B Flying Kunai. In both situations, Yosuke is able to combo into a 5C due to its giant hitbox and speed. Apart from this, 5C is just simple combo filler, mainly going from 5C > 2C. On block this move isn't anything special, functioning as a blockstring filler. While in Sukukaja, Yosuke gains the ability to dash cancel this move allowing for more combos, as well as being able to jump cancel it on block.

  • Jump cancelable on hit.
  • Slight vacuum effect on air hit.
  • Sukukaja Buff: Back Dash cancelable on hit and on block
  • Sukukaja Buff: Jump cancelable on block.

Jiraiya does a swipe with his boomerang. This move has a pretty slow startup making the only way to combo into it on standing be from 5C. On crouching, however, Yosuke can do B normals instead. Used a lot on combos to finish a gatling chain to go into a special or jump cancel due to it dealing a good amount of damage and having a lot of hitstun both on ground hit and on air hit. Used a lot in Sukukaja combos immediately after using it to add on damage before 5As. It can also put the opponent high enough in the air for a j.A+B. Being dash cancelable on hit and on block makes this move decent to use in pressure, along with being good as a CH punish (similar to Narukami's 5C). In Sukukaja, this move gains the ability to be backdash canceled on hit and on block, as well as being jump cancelable on block.

  • Goes almost fullscreen.

Jiraiya rushes forward with his fist extended and delivers an uppercut follow up upon pressing D again, even on whiff. Goes about 3/4ths of the screen. Lots of start-up, and the ending animation will whiff entirely at certain distances. Can be used to cover an approach or harass an opponent at range due to Jiraiya acting independently from Yosuke, but expect to lose a Persona card if not careful. On hit and especially on counter hits, it is possible to confirm out of the follow up for a simple combo into hard knockdown. Can be used mid combo after a One More! Burst to add a bit of damage.

  • Multiple hits.

  • Sukukaja Buff: Jump cancelable on hit and on block.
  • Sukukaja Buff: Air Dash and Air Back Dash cancelable on hit and on block.

Yosuke and Jiraiya perform a multi-hit dive punch in the air. Yosuke is locked in the animation for a set amount of frames unless he hits the ground or cancels into a special. It is a committal jump-in move with decent reward on hit if confirmed. Generally used in combos during an air dash after a j.2A+B, instead of j.B. It can also be used to add on a bit more damage to j.B chains before going into j.236C. In pressure this move is used a mainly after a hop in order to reset pressure, though the hop leaves a gap so be careful.

  • Goes full screen.

Similar to 5D, Jiraiya will rush forward with his fist extended. Unlike 5D however, this move does not have a follow up with 5DD. j.D also has a bit faster startup. This move is used a lot in neutral due to it going fullscreen, which is further than 5D. Not too difficult to confirm off a stray one either and even easier on Counter Hit. Can be used a bit during combos after a j.2A+B in the corner for interesting extensions. Sees only some use in pressure as a way to start a block string or by air backdashing from a move, and doing j.D to hit the opponent while retreating.

  • Causes spin state.
  • Inflicts poison.

Yosuke grabs the opponent and preforms a 2 quick teleporting slices. This move puts the opponent into spin state and inflicts poison on to them, adding more damage than the throw entails. Used a lot as his pressure allows for a lot of opportunities to go for a tick grab with this. Super canceling into Sukukaja in awakening allows for a nice damaging combo, otherwise going into Garudyne or a One More! Cancel works as well for less damage.

  • Inflicts poison.

Yosuke grabs the opponent and does a teleporting downward slice. Very similar to the fifth hit of Yosuke's Sukukaja Auto Combo but not special or super cancelable. Inflicts poison to add on a bit more damage. Can One More! Cancel or Burst to continue the combo. Pretty standard Air Grab.

  • Invincible start up
  • Is a counter
  • Hard Knockdown on grounded opponents.
  • Soft Knockdown on airborne opponents.
  • Counter Hit state recovery.

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. Avoid using it too predictably as Yosuke's health is quite low.

  • Unblockable
  • Generally only hits grounded opponents.
  • Launches opponents.
  • Inflicts Confuse.
  • Fatal Counters on Counter hit.
  • Launches higher on Fatal Counter.

Yosukes crouches while Jiraiya appears above him to press a star against the opponent. Places an unblockable hitbox on the ground where Jiraiya slams. Sends the opponent slightly upwards in the air and leaves the opponent in Confusion. Has a fairly slow startup to make up for it being unblockable. This move can Fatal Counter on Counter Hit similar to Mirage Slash, and makes for a great punish option and starter. Generally used as a mixup option to catch the opponent off guard with an unblockable or used as Fatal starter and combo tool to add on extra damage. Note that this move will usually not hit opponents who are in the air unless they are just about to hit the ground, this is important for comboing into it.


C Version

  • Goes a little bit in front of Yosuke

This is the version that is used for meterless mixups due to it having a faster startup and the short distance is not a problem. Used in some CH combos as well such as CH 2C > 236C for optimizing damage. This is also the version that will be used for punishes.


D Version

  • Goes a little more than half-screen.

Has a slowest startup out of the three, however it travels a bit further. Not much use besides comboing into it from a stray air hit CH 5C, which even then is niche. Could be used as a far away punish as well though unlikely.


SB Version

  • Goes almost fullscreen.

This is the fastest version of this move and the one that goes the furthest. Used in mixups as a faster 236C or used in combos where 236C or 236D would not be possible because of speed or distance such as air hit 5C > 236C+D.

  • Can be used as a follow up from any other air actions.
  • Can be used up to 3 times in a series of air actions.
  • SB version inflicts poison.
  • Wall Sticks in corner
  • Sukukaja Buff: Yosuke can do any air action after throwing the kunai.
  • Sukukaja Buff: Air Dash and Air Back Dash cancelable on whiff, hit or block

Yosuke launches backwards into the air throwing 6 kunais down onto his opponent. Despite that, it prorates as if a single projectile. On standing hit it doesn't do much, but on air hit it sends the opponent downwards towards the ground then pops them up a bit. In the corner it also causes a wall stick, both of these allowing it to be used for combo extensions and makes it a very important tool in his combo theory. While in Sukukaja, this move also becomes special cancelable with any of Yosuke's air specials and also becomes Air Dash cancelable making it an important tool for optimizing Sukukaja combos.


A: The kunai are thrown in a 70° angle. Puts Yosuke fairly close to the opponent afterward making it easy to follow up with a move like 5C. Used when closer to the opponent after something like and air hit 5C by doing 5C > hop > Kunai.


B: The kunai are thrown at a 55° angle while popping Yosuke up a little higher. Used when a bit further away from the corner as the extra travel time plus being able to wall stick from further away makes it so that it is possible to follow up with a dashing 5C or j.B


SB: The kunai are thrown in a 55° angle, inflict poison and Yosuke recovers much quicker allowing him to follow up with more options such as an IAD j.C/j.B midscreen or a IAD Moonsault in the corner. This ends up leading to pretty big damage combos with the added poison damage and is basically Yosuke's go-to move for a 25 meter combo.

  • Hits low.
  • Fatal Counters on Counter hit.
  • Startup Special cancelable.
  • Gives hard knockdown.
  • Can only be used once in a series of air actions.
  • Sukukaja Buff: Special cancelable.

Jiraiya appears in the air, claps, and teleports Yosuke to the ground in a puff of smoke. The start up can be cancelled into other aerial specials, as long as the air action is available; however, Yosuke will only be able to use Mirage Slash once in a series of air actions. This move gives a nice hard knockdown, and is typically seen after a Flying Flash Cut. Mirage Slash also doubles as a great starter due to it being able to Fatal Counter on Counter Hit, launching the opponent into the air with a lot of untech time. In Sukukaja, this move gains the ability to be special cancelled into any ground special.


C Version

  • Goes a little less than half-screen.

Yosuke appears on the ground sliding forwards with an attack that hits low. Generally the main combo ender. Used a lot mid combo, as well to extend with a super cancel, the go-to way to combo into Sukukaja.


D Version

  • Does not attack.

Instead of attacking, Yosuke lands on the ground but stays in place, feinting the move essentially. Once Yosuke lands, there is a bit of time where he cannot act. Has niche uses due to the recovery.


SB Version

  • Goes a little less than fullscreen.
  • Multi-hit on block.
  • Passes through opponent at certain distances.

Similar to the C version except once Yosuke appears, he slides much farther and at a faster speed and also does more damage than C version. It can also pass through the opponent on hit and on block. Not used much by regular Yosuke but is seen with Shadow Yosuke in some frenzy routes to follow up after Flying Kunai without Sukukaja or for just the higher damage. On block, this move actually has a multi-hitting effect and every hit is a low making it possible to catch people off guard, but it is still unsafe on block. Also note that meter for this move isn't consumed until Yosuke appears, so it is possible to cancel before that happens and meter won't be lost.

Jiraiya tosses Yosuke downward in a foot dive like manner, Yosuke will then bounce upwards when he hits the ground creating a V Shape. This move is one of Yosuke's most important combo tool. Has enough hitstun to combo into many options afterwards with each version having its own uses in combos. Unlike most of Yosuke's specials, this one can only be used once in a series of air actions. In general, it can be combo'd into Mirage Slash for an easy way to end in hard knockdown. In Sukukaja, Yosuke gains the ability to air dash or air back dash cancel this move on hit or on block.


C Version: Has the fastest startup and the one that will be used 70% of the time. Due to its speed it makes for a very reliable to way to end in a hard knockdown from basically anything, be it air or ground confirms. Generally used as the move right before a combo ends unless it is hit close enough to the corner to combo out of an A Flying Kunai, or meter is used. However, it is important to play around proration well, since at higher prorations this move does not combo into j.2C. In those situations, it is better to either end in Flying Kunai or get a different ender altogether.


D Version: Much slower than the C version but also launches the opponent up higher and with more untech time. Generally used in Yosuke's higher damaging combos since it combos into and out of Crescent Slash. This move can be used to combo into a really delayed Crescent Slash to land it close enough to the ground, making it possible to do Mirage Slash > A Flying Kunai, and follow up after in the corner. In order to land Mirage Slash after this move, delaying is required because of the higher launch.


SB Version

  • Attacks in a W shape on hit.
  • Has projectile invul from frame 18 until Yosuke hits the ground the second time.

This version has a faster startup than D version but a slightly slower one than C. On whiff and on block, this move does the standard V shape. However, on hit, it goes for another round and does a W shape. Afterwards, Yosuke is left further from the opponent than the other two versions, making it possible to time a Mirage Slash just right to be able to 2A OTG and continue the combo for 25 SP extensions.

  • Special cancelable into an air action.
  • Steals Corner
  • Overhead
  • Can be used up to 3 times in a series of air actions.
  • Sukukaja Buff: Can now be used up to 4 times.

Yosuke performs a forward flip that has a different arc depending on the version. After the flip, Yosuke can press A or B to perform a follow up attack called Crescent Slash, which hits overhead and pops the opponent into the air. It is possible to mix and match Moonsaults and Crescent slashes such as doing A Moonsault into B Crescent Slash or vice versa. All versions can only be used up to 3 times in one series of air actions, while in Sukukaja that number goes up to 4. If Moonsault is used towards the opponent in the corner, it will actually steal the corner from them and cross them up where it would normally be impossible. This move is used a lot in Yosuke's metered combos and his Sukukaja combos due to being able to chain 3 in a row for easy damage.


A Version

  • Sukukaja Buff: Air Dash and Air Back Dash cancelable on hit and on block.

Goes in an arc that moves further forwards rather than upwards. Both the Moonsault and Crescent Slash come out faster than the B versions making it useful for some combos where the B versions, Moonsault or Crescent Slash, one or the other would be too slow.


B Version

  • Sukukaja Buff: Air Dash and Air Back Dash cancelable on hit and on block.

Goes in a higher but not as far reaching arc compared to A moonsault. Both Moonsault and Crescent Slash come out a bit slower than the A Versions. However B Crescent Slash pops them up higher and does more damage and hitstun than the A version. This is the version that will be used most of the time in combos.


SB Version: This version does not actually do a whole flip. Yosuke jumps in the air a bit but does not move anywhere horizontally before automatically going into the Crescent Slash follow up. This move is very useful for confirming off of random hits such as hitting a stray j.B then going into j.A+B then SB Moonsault and doing a good amount of damage. Can also be used in a similar way to Yu's air SB Raging Lion where it can be used as an extra overhead low to the ground that leads into a full combo on hit, However, this also benefits from the fact that it works off of doing it from a Tiger-Knee after a jump cancelable move.

Yosuke jumps into the air rotating in circles with his kunais extended, while Jiraiya spins with him making a tornado surround them. C and D versions allow movement control of where Yosuke travels.


C version moves at a slow speed.


D version moves at a higher speed making it harder to control.


SB version moves at an incredibly fast speed, but takes the control away (SB can be used to punish zoners).

  • Install super!
  • Commonly referred to as just "Suku", and in turn, buffed normals are also referred to with that prefix.

Yosuke charges up with the power of his Persona. A meter will appear above his SP Gauge displaying how much time he has left in the install.

While Sukukaja is active, Yosuke gains many buffs for a limited period of time:

  • Greatly increased movement speed (plus his ground dash becomes invisible for a bit if done from a dash cancel, or if [6] is held).
  • Various frame data changes to moves: faster start-up, altered frame advantage, etc.
  • Various mechanical changes to moves as well, such as:
    • The ability to jump and dash cancel almost all normals, on both hit and block.
    • New access to dash/backdash and even air dash cancels on specific moves.
    • An extra air special action.
    • Mirage Slash becomes special cancellable.
    • 2C gains Fatal Counter property.
  • Access to new moves:
    • A new 5A that travels forward, and a new autocombo.
    • Yosuke also gets a new super: Shippu - Nagareboshi.

214214C
  • Duration: 299F

This is the most commonly used version of Sukukaja due to its fast start-up and decent duration, allowing it to be used in many combos as a pseudo-OMC. Beware that this version does not have frame 1 start-up invulnerability, so it can't be used to go through moves on reaction.

Another interesting thing to note about this version of Sukukaja, is that it only has 2 frames of vulnerable recovery.


214214D
  • Duration: 599F
  • Invincible on start-up

Has a longer duration than the other two versions and has frame 1 start-up invincibility, but also has longer start-up and recovery. The recovery can be so long that some characters can whiff some moves through Yosuke, but still recover fast enough to Counter Hit him.

The duration is twice as long as the C version (~10 seconds), so it can be used in neutral for some extra offensive edge, but beware of opponents who have fast and far-reaching options for punishing the install's recovery.


214214C+D
  • Duration: 199F

Even better start-up that the C version of Sukukaja, but also does not have frame 1 invincibility. Has a shorter duration than the C version as well.

  • Causes spin state on grounded opponents.
  • Fourth hit launches the opponent.
  • No Gatling options.
  • [ ] = If blocked.
  • Fatal Recovery.

Extremely fast normal that moves half screen, 5 Hit Auto Combo that ends with a downward slash that is special cancelable. Used a lot in Sukukaja combos and in pressure due to it crossing up the opponent. Especially scary when mixed with shadow frenzy with it being able to be jump canceled it on block. Due to this move now having Fatal Recovery, it is important be a bit more careful when throwing it out randomly in neutral. While being not able to gatling out of this move, Yosuke can gatling into it from 5C and 2C in Sukukaja. If Yosuke runs out of Sukukaja before you finish the Auto Combo, Yosuke will still be able to do the rest of it, but won't be able to finish with Shippu - Nagareboshi.

140 Low 4 3 9 -1 Foot -

Sukukaja Buffs:

  • Reduced start-up and recovery.
  • Both forward dash and backdash cancellable on connect.

Yosuke's 2A gets juiced in Sukukaja, turning it into the fastest normal in the game while also improving its frame advantage on block to -1. With this frame data, staggers and perfect Re-dashWhen the attacker in a pressure situation dashes back in on the opponent after a frame advantageous or low frame disadvantageous attack, to reset and thus continue their offense.es from Suku 2A into itself can beat out 6F and slower mash buttons.

Great for catching the opponent off-guard in neutral when used with Sukukaja dash (micro/short dash 2A can be used as a poke), and is also very good for stuffing out the opponent's imperfect defensive mashes after 5C / 2C > forward dash cancels.

It can also be dash cancelled on its own in either direction for tricky pressure strings. An interesting usage if you're somehow put on the defensive while in Sukukaja, is 2A mash > backdash cancel to dodge AoAs due to their short active frames, and punish with a full combo.

170, 85×2 All 9 2×3 15 0 Body -

Sukukaja Buffs:

  • Increased attack level, so better frame advantage on block.
  • Can be backdash cancelled on connect.
  • Can also be jump cancelled on block.

Yosuke's Suku 5B becomes potentially his best normal for pressure altogether while in his install.

On top of the already existing strengths of his 5B, it becomes 0 on block while in Sukukaja, allowing it to be solid for setting up frame-traps and pressure resets versus many characters, and also give tighter strike/throw mix-ups, especially with his Suku 5A and 2A.

For example, the string 5B, 2A > 5B, (66 2A > 5B)xN is unmashable without IB unless the opponent wants to eat a Counter Hit. Yosuke can also put more staggers, and eventually throw attempts in such a string once respect is earned.

The additional backdash and jump-cancel options help to make Sukukaja pressure even scarier, as Yosuke has so many options from it on block between the strike/throw and frametraps mentioned above, jump/backdash cancelling to bait defensive options and other pressure resets with j.C, or also the ability to go for TK Crescent Slash or air turn air dash mix-ups at more points in his pressure.

All of these buffs make Yosuke's 5B as good as, if not better than his 2B mid-pressure, especially considering its better range and frame advantage.

  • Can now be backdash cancelled on connect.

Sukukaja 2B is a give-or-take in the anti-air department, improving the start-up and priority speed of an already amazing anti-air, but also cutting its active frames in half. It still retains its massive head invuln for that purpose, though.

A quick kunai slice, mainly used in his stagger pressure and mixups. Generally inferior to j.B as a jump in but has the benefit of being faster. On hit or on block, it can continuously cancel into itself, constantly alternating between the animation and hitboxes of j.A and j.B. Not really used in combos as j.B is almost always better.

  • Jump cancelable on hit and on block

  • Sukukaja Buff: Air Dash and Air Back Dash cancelable on hit and on block

Yosuke swings his kunai downwards. This move has a bigger hitbox than j.A at the cost of being a bit slower. Better as a jump in due to the bigger hitbox and also higher untech time on CH. Just like j.A, on hit or on block, Yosuke can continuously cancel into this move, also alternating between the animation and hitboxes of j.A and j.B. Used more in combos due to higher hitstun and more damage. Sukukaja grants this move the ability to be AIr Dash canceled or Air Back Dash canceled on hit and on block.

  • Jump cancelable on hit and on block
  • Alters Yosuke's air momentum.
  • Still considered an overhead during a hop.
  • Sukukaja Buff: Air Dash or Air Back Dash cancelable on hit and on block

Yosuke performs an upwards swing with his kunai. While performing the slash Yosuke halts his momentum and moves upwards slightly. This move is generally used during air strings with j.B to add on a bit more damage, or during routes in which goes into Flying Kunai after a j.A+B. This move, strangely, is also counted as an overhead from a hop, allowing Yosuke to catch 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). Sukukaja grants this move the ability to be Air Dash canceled or Air Back Dash canceled on hit and on block.

Sukukaja Buffs
  • Faster start-up, and faster guardpoint

Suku AoA gets an ounce better as a mix-up option as its start-up comes down to 26F, still competently reactable but can make the difference with the install's mental stack included.

Something notable is that dash Suku AoA can be used as a gimmicky counterpoke due to the forward movement + momentum from the dash + guardpoint, but it is generally not recommended due to the lack of safety on whiff and block.

Yosuke does a sliding sweep with his kunais hitting low. Reaches very far and is on the faster side of sweeps so combined with Yosuke's speed makes for an alright option to throw out. However, is it very unsafe if used on block so it is recommended to special cancel into something afterwards to avoid that. Very important tool when it comes to Yosuke's corner combos as it allows for an easy way to get the opponent airborne before comboing into Dash Spring. Unlike most Sweeps in the game, this move is actually not hop cancelable thus limiting Yosuke's options on block to just special and super cancels.

  • Sukukaja Buff: Dash cancelable on hit and on block.
  • Sukukaja Buff: Jump cancelable on block/

Jiraiya performs a forward kick. This move has a very big hitbox and is decently fast. Due to it launching the opponent horizontally on air hit, it ends up having a lot of untech time. This makes it a very useful move when it comes to Yosuke's corner combos. Depending on the distance to the corner, Yosuke can either combo into a hop A Flying Kunai, or a jump back B Flying Kunai. In both situations, Yosuke is able to combo into a 5C due to its giant hitbox and speed. Apart from this, 5C is just simple combo filler, mainly going from 5C > 2C. On block this move isn't anything special, functioning as a blockstring filler. While in Sukukaja, Yosuke gains the ability to dash cancel this move allowing for more combos, as well as being able to jump cancel it on block.

  • Slight vacuum effect on air hit.
  • Sukukaja Buff: Back Dash cancelable on hit and on block
  • Sukukaja Buff: Jump cancelable on block.

Jiraiya does a swipe with his boomerang. This move has a pretty slow startup making the only way to combo into it on standing be from 5C. On crouching, however, Yosuke can do B normals instead. Used a lot on combos to finish a gatling chain to go into a special or jump cancel due to it dealing a good amount of damage and having a lot of hitstun both on ground hit and on air hit. Used a lot in Sukukaja combos immediately after using it to add on damage before 5As. It can also put the opponent high enough in the air for a j.A+B. Being dash cancelable on hit and on block makes this move decent to use in pressure, along with being good as a CH punish (similar to Narukami's 5C). In Sukukaja, this move gains the ability to be backdash canceled on hit and on block, as well as being jump cancelable on block.

Jiraiya rushes forward with his fist extended and delivers an uppercut follow up upon pressing D again, even on whiff. Goes about 3/4ths of the screen. Lots of start-up, and the ending animation will whiff entirely at certain distances. Can be used to cover an approach or harass an opponent at range due to Jiraiya acting independently from Yosuke, but expect to lose a Persona card if not careful. On hit and especially on counter hits, it is possible to confirm out of the follow up for a simple combo into hard knockdown. Can be used mid combo after a One More! Burst to add a bit of damage.

Yosuke and Jiraiya perform a multi-hit dive punch in the air. Yosuke is locked in the animation for a set amount of frames unless he hits the ground or cancels into a special. It is a committal jump-in move with decent reward on hit if confirmed. Generally used in combos during an air dash after a j.2A+B, instead of j.B. It can also be used to add on a bit more damage to j.B chains before going into j.236C. In pressure this move is used a mainly after a hop in order to reset pressure, though the hop leaves a gap so be careful.

  • Goes full screen.

Similar to 5D, Jiraiya will rush forward with his fist extended. Unlike 5D however, this move does not have a follow up with 5DD. j.D also has a bit faster startup. This move is used a lot in neutral due to it going fullscreen, which is further than 5D. Not too difficult to confirm off a stray one either and even easier on Counter Hit. Can be used a bit during combos after a j.2A+B in the corner for interesting extensions. Sees only some use in pressure as a way to start a block string or by air backdashing from a move, and doing j.D to hit the opponent while retreating.

  • Causes spin state.
  • Inflicts poison.

Yosuke grabs the opponent and preforms a 2 quick teleporting slices. This move puts the opponent into spin state and inflicts poison on to them, adding more damage than the throw entails. Used a lot as his pressure allows for a lot of opportunities to go for a tick grab with this. Super canceling into Sukukaja in awakening allows for a nice damaging combo, otherwise going into Garudyne or a One More! Cancel works as well for less damage.

Yosuke grabs the opponent and does a teleporting downward slice. Very similar to the fifth hit of Yosuke's Sukukaja Auto Combo but not special or super cancelable. Inflicts poison to add on a bit more damage. Can One More! Cancel or Burst to continue the combo. Pretty standard Air Grab.

  • Invincible start up
  • Is a counter
  • Hard Knockdown on grounded opponents.
  • Soft Knockdown on airborne opponents.
  • Counter Hit state recovery.

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. Avoid using it too predictably as Yosuke's health is quite low.

  • Unblockable
  • Generally only hits grounded opponents.
  • Launches opponents.
  • Inflicts Confuse.
  • Fatal Counters on Counter hit.
  • Launches higher on Fatal Counter.

Yosukes crouches while Jiraiya appears above him to press a star against the opponent. Places an unblockable hitbox on the ground where Jiraiya slams. Sends the opponent slightly upwards in the air and leaves the opponent in Confusion. Has a fairly slow startup to make up for it being unblockable. This move can Fatal Counter on Counter Hit similar to Mirage Slash, and makes for a great punish option and starter. Generally used as a mixup option to catch the opponent off guard with an unblockable or used as Fatal starter and combo tool to add on extra damage. Note that this move will usually not hit opponents who are in the air unless they are just about to hit the ground, this is important for comboing into it.


C Version

  • Goes a little bit in front of Yosuke

This is the version that is used for meterless mixups due to it having a faster startup and the short distance is not a problem. Used in some CH combos as well such as CH 2C > 236C for optimizing damage. This is also the version that will be used for punishes.


D Version

  • Goes a little more than half-screen.

Has a slowest startup out of the three, however it travels a bit further. Not much use besides comboing into it from a stray air hit CH 5C, which even then is niche. Could be used as a far away punish as well though unlikely.


SB Version

  • Goes almost fullscreen.

This is the fastest version of this move and the one that goes the furthest. Used in mixups as a faster 236C or used in combos where 236C or 236D would not be possible because of speed or distance such as air hit 5C > 236C+D.

  • SB version inflicts poison.
  • Wall Sticks in corner
  • Sukukaja Buff: Yosuke can do any air action after throwing the kunai.
  • Sukukaja Buff: Air Dash and Air Back Dash cancelable on whiff, hit or block

Yosuke launches backwards into the air throwing 6 kunais down onto his opponent. Despite that, it prorates as if a single projectile. On standing hit it doesn't do much, but on air hit it sends the opponent downwards towards the ground then pops them up a bit. In the corner it also causes a wall stick, both of these allowing it to be used for combo extensions and makes it a very important tool in his combo theory. While in Sukukaja, this move also becomes special cancelable with any of Yosuke's air specials and also becomes Air Dash cancelable making it an important tool for optimizing Sukukaja combos.


A: The kunai are thrown in a 70° angle. Puts Yosuke fairly close to the opponent afterward making it easy to follow up with a move like 5C. Used when closer to the opponent after something like and air hit 5C by doing 5C > hop > Kunai.


B: The kunai are thrown at a 55° angle while popping Yosuke up a little higher. Used when a bit further away from the corner as the extra travel time plus being able to wall stick from further away makes it so that it is possible to follow up with a dashing 5C or j.B


SB: The kunai are thrown in a 55° angle, inflict poison and Yosuke recovers much quicker allowing him to follow up with more options such as an IAD j.C/j.B midscreen or a IAD Moonsault in the corner. This ends up leading to pretty big damage combos with the added poison damage and is basically Yosuke's go-to move for a 25 meter combo.

  • Hits low.
  • Fatal Counters on Counter hit.
  • Startup Special cancelable.
  • Gives hard knockdown.
  • Can only be used once in a series of air actions.
  • Sukukaja Buff: Special cancelable.

Jiraiya appears in the air, claps, and teleports Yosuke to the ground in a puff of smoke. The start up can be cancelled into other aerial specials, as long as the air action is available; however, Yosuke will only be able to use Mirage Slash once in a series of air actions. This move gives a nice hard knockdown, and is typically seen after a Flying Flash Cut. Mirage Slash also doubles as a great starter due to it being able to Fatal Counter on Counter Hit, launching the opponent into the air with a lot of untech time. In Sukukaja, this move gains the ability to be special cancelled into any ground special.


C Version

  • Goes a little less than half-screen.

Yosuke appears on the ground sliding forwards with an attack that hits low. Generally the main combo ender. Used a lot mid combo, as well to extend with a super cancel, the go-to way to combo into Sukukaja.


D Version

  • Does not attack.

Instead of attacking, Yosuke lands on the ground but stays in place, feinting the move essentially. Once Yosuke lands, there is a bit of time where he cannot act. Has niche uses due to the recovery.


SB Version

  • Goes a little less than fullscreen.
  • Multi-hit on block.
  • Passes through opponent at certain distances.

Similar to the C version except once Yosuke appears, he slides much farther and at a faster speed and also does more damage than C version. It can also pass through the opponent on hit and on block. Not used much by regular Yosuke but is seen with Shadow Yosuke in some frenzy routes to follow up after Flying Kunai without Sukukaja or for just the higher damage. On block, this move actually has a multi-hitting effect and every hit is a low making it possible to catch people off guard, but it is still unsafe on block. Also note that meter for this move isn't consumed until Yosuke appears, so it is possible to cancel before that happens and meter won't be lost.

  • Very commonly referred to as "V-Slash"
  • Ground bounces and launches opponents.
  • Special cancelable into an air action.
  • Can only be used once in a series of air actions.
  • Sukukaja Buff: Air Dash and Air Back Dash cancelable on hit and on block.

Jiraiya tosses Yosuke downward in a foot dive like manner, Yosuke will then bounce upwards when he hits the ground creating a V Shape. This move is one of Yosuke's most important combo tool. Has enough hitstun to combo into many options afterwards with each version having its own uses in combos. Unlike most of Yosuke's specials, this one can only be used once in a series of air actions. In general, it can be combo'd into Mirage Slash for an easy way to end in hard knockdown. In Sukukaja, Yosuke gains the ability to air dash or air back dash cancel this move on hit or on block.


C Version: Has the fastest startup and the one that will be used 70% of the time. Due to its speed it makes for a very reliable to way to end in a hard knockdown from basically anything, be it air or ground confirms. Generally used as the move right before a combo ends unless it is hit close enough to the corner to combo out of an A Flying Kunai, or meter is used. However, it is important to play around proration well, since at higher prorations this move does not combo into j.2C. In those situations, it is better to either end in Flying Kunai or get a different ender altogether.


D Version: Much slower than the C version but also launches the opponent up higher and with more untech time. Generally used in Yosuke's higher damaging combos since it combos into and out of Crescent Slash. This move can be used to combo into a really delayed Crescent Slash to land it close enough to the ground, making it possible to do Mirage Slash > A Flying Kunai, and follow up after in the corner. In order to land Mirage Slash after this move, delaying is required because of the higher launch.


SB Version

  • Attacks in a W shape on hit.
  • Has projectile invul from frame 18 until Yosuke hits the ground the second time.

This version has a faster startup than D version but a slightly slower one than C. On whiff and on block, this move does the standard V shape. However, on hit, it goes for another round and does a W shape. Afterwards, Yosuke is left further from the opponent than the other two versions, making it possible to time a Mirage Slash just right to be able to 2A OTG and continue the combo for 25 SP extensions.

  • Special cancelable into an air action.
  • Steals Corner
  • Overhead
  • Can be used up to 3 times in a series of air actions.
  • Sukukaja Buff: Can now be used up to 4 times.

Yosuke performs a forward flip that has a different arc depending on the version. After the flip, Yosuke can press A or B to perform a follow up attack called Crescent Slash, which hits overhead and pops the opponent into the air. It is possible to mix and match Moonsaults and Crescent slashes such as doing A Moonsault into B Crescent Slash or vice versa. All versions can only be used up to 3 times in one series of air actions, while in Sukukaja that number goes up to 4. If Moonsault is used towards the opponent in the corner, it will actually steal the corner from them and cross them up where it would normally be impossible. This move is used a lot in Yosuke's metered combos and his Sukukaja combos due to being able to chain 3 in a row for easy damage.


A Version

  • Sukukaja Buff: Air Dash and Air Back Dash cancelable on hit and on block.

Goes in an arc that moves further forwards rather than upwards. Both the Moonsault and Crescent Slash come out faster than the B versions making it useful for some combos where the B versions, Moonsault or Crescent Slash, one or the other would be too slow.


B Version

  • Sukukaja Buff: Air Dash and Air Back Dash cancelable on hit and on block.

Goes in a higher but not as far reaching arc compared to A moonsault. Both Moonsault and Crescent Slash come out a bit slower than the A Versions. However B Crescent Slash pops them up higher and does more damage and hitstun than the A version. This is the version that will be used most of the time in combos.


SB Version: This version does not actually do a whole flip. Yosuke jumps in the air a bit but does not move anywhere horizontally before automatically going into the Crescent Slash follow up. This move is very useful for confirming off of random hits such as hitting a stray j.B then going into j.A+B then SB Moonsault and doing a good amount of damage. Can also be used in a similar way to Yu's air SB Raging Lion where it can be used as an extra overhead low to the ground that leads into a full combo on hit, However, this also benefits from the fact that it works off of doing it from a Tiger-Knee after a jump cancelable move.

C version moves at a slow speed.


D version moves at a higher speed making it harder to control.


SB version moves at an incredibly fast speed, but takes the control away (SB can be used to punish zoners).

  • Can only be performed during Sukukaja
  • Invincible through start-up and all active frames.
  • Does not cost any extra SP on top of Sukukaja, unless the SB version is performed, in which case only an additional 25 SP will be taken.
  • Ends Sukukaja upon use, regardless of connect or whiff.
  • Is often referred to as "Kunai super", or sometimes affectionately as just "Whoo!" by the community.

Yosuke knees the opponent, and together him and Jiraiya hurl kunais at the opponent. This move has a very large hitbox, allowing Yosuke to hit from awkward angles. Typically used to end combos in Sukukaja, since it is an extra super after all, so there's no reason not to use it in such an instance if you can.


C Version travels diagonally up, while the D Version travels almost straight up. SB version travels almost completely horizontally.

Yosuke poses on the ground while Jiraiya does a spinning aerial attack towards the opponent making a huge tornado. Can't control the movement like Garudyne. Very unsafe on block. If not blocked it will do exactly the amount of HP the opponent has left.
