Crossup.png

A crossup is an attack that hits the opponent on the opposite side, forcing the opponent to change the direction they are blocking from left to right (or vice versa).

Most crossups require specific setups to perform, such as jumping over the opponent. It is up to the defender to recognize when the attacker is attempting a crossup and change their block direction accordingly.

Ambiguous Crossup

Which way!?

Some crossups are more difficult to block because the attacker can do a setup that will lead to either a crossup or a same side attack. These are much more difficult to defend against since even when the opponent recognizes the setup they will still need to guess which direction to block, or rely very minute timing differences.

Crossup Protection

Crossup Protection is a system mechanic that allows crossup attacks to be blocked by holding either backward or forwards. Crossup Protection usually lasts for a few frames after players change sides. This serves as a slight built-in defense against ambiguous crossups.
