Overview

Overview

In Guilty Gear, almost the entire cast uses a weapon of some sort. Sol and Ky use their swords, May uses a big anchor, Venom uses a pool cue, and Jam settles with her fists and legs. Taking inspiration from martial arts legend Bruce Lee, Jam enters the game as an oppressive and extremely mobile rushdown character who excels at getting in and establishing dominance with her oppressive normals before following up with extremely damaging and lengthy combos.

Jam's gimmick are her Card Specials. By pressing 22K/S/H, Jam can charge up a card corresponding to one of her Kick Specials, which are Ryujin, a screen-crossing dragon kick, Kenroukaku, an anti-air reversal, and Gekirin, an overhead knee swipe. By sacrificing a card, Jam can choose to perform an empowered version of each one of these moves that carry much better properties. Jam's card specials are essential to her gameplan and will force your opponent to respect you, lest they eat an empowered Ryujin to the face and lose half of their life bar in a single combo.

Although she has the shortest range in the game, Jam more than makes up for it with exceptionally fast normals, disgusting hitboxes, various means of being plus on block, and enormous damage output with her Card Specials. Outside of the Card Specials, Jam also has three reversal supers, a parry, a command dash and various command movement options to let her keep the pressure on once she gets in. Her command dash is particularly good for establishing midrange pressure as it can be cancelled into the infamous "puffball", a massive extended hitbox that's safe on block. Stocking cards allows her to cancel her Kick Specials into one another, which are great for punishing an opponent and dealing huge damage.

The price she pays is that Jam's range falls short of the rest of the entire cast, and she has trouble getting in and around projectiles and zoning. She must take risks, often taking to the air or attempting to slide under things in order to get in, lest she be pushed back out and resume the struggle all over again. Once she gets in though, Jam gets to make her opponent's life a nightmare.
"Gotta repay my debts with good business."
Lore:Though she is a chef, Jam is one of the world's most proficient wielders of Ki force. Her life goal is to discover new and useful cuisines.

Playstyle
Jam Kuradoberi is a mobile and versatile rushdown character who can empower her Kick Specials with Cards to make them incredibly deadly and excels at close range.
Pros Cons
  • Insane Combo Game: With cards, Jam can easily hit 50% health combos off of even stray hits. Her carded combos can also carry the opponent to the corner very easily, and all four of her supers can be used to end a combo with a powerful finisher.
  • Strong pressure: Some moves are nigh incontestable once Jam gets in range, and her command dash has four follow-ups that each have purpose in mixups, gap closing, and pressure resets. Her 6H is notably throw invulnerable, meaning Jam can completely ignore the traditional GG wakeup throw option select.
  • Combos lead to knockdown: Knocks down particularly easily with cards. Can make her DP safer with cards.
  • Great mobility: A fast ground dash and airdash let Jam move around the screen very quickly - usually towards her opponent.
  • High meter gain: Abundant meter for use in mixups, pressure, generating cards, or damage output.
  • Parry: Strong tool that allows Jam to break out of pressure in ways others cannot.
  • Abysmal Range: Jam is outranged by the entire cast. Can make getting in or even playing neutral difficult.
  • Weak to zoning: With no projectile nor means of dealing with them, Jam has no direct way to deal with strong zoning. Successfully using her dash and Ryujin are key to approaching, but both come with their own risks.
  • Limited meterless mixup potential: Fairly limited meterless high/low mixup without Card Gekirin.
  • Mediocre Anti-Air: Since 6P doesn't make for a great AA, Jam must rely on rising buttons, airthrow, or DP to deal with opponents approaching by the air.

Cards

Jam can use one of her specials to prepare cards which enhance her other specials by granting them new properties. Using the D instead of K button for the following specials results in the listed changes:

  • Ryuujin: Wallsticks instead of wallbounce. Significantly faster startup and nearly tripled active time with more startup invuln and a large hitbox.
  • Gekirin: Becomes three hits, hits crouchers much sooner, becomes untechable and knocks down.
  • Kenroukaku: Starts on frame three, hits more times, gains forward momentum, becomes untechable and knocks down.

These cards take time to prepare, and as such are usually prepared after a knockdown, or at full screen. Jam can use 22K/S/H for a card for a corresponding move, or 22D for one of each card.

Pressure extraordinaire.

  • Oppressive move on contact. +1 on block, and three hits means you build guard bar like mad.
  • Has some upper body invulnerability and low profiles on the last hit.
  • Third hit vacuums, keeping Jam in range for mixups and pressure resets off the slight frame advantage.
  • Forces crouching on hit for stronger confirms.
  • Gatlings into long-range, jump-cancellable 6K and f.S, valuable reverse gatlings that provides versatility in Jam's blockstrings for ambiguous pressure resets.
  • Miserable on whiff, and if pushed out with FD before the third hit connects and vacuums, Jam is a sitting duck. Be wary of spacing.

Oppressive normal which often leads to the very scary 6H. Mixed with throws and other delayed pokes for frame traps, this becomes a go-to in pressure. In neutral, this move can be used to confirm into 6H to begin one of Jam's Card Ryujin combos, but be warned that it can push your opponent away from you at far ranges. Thus, try confirming into 6H early into the move's active frames to ensure that you can begin the combo.


Gatling Options: 6K, f.S, 6H, 3H

Additional Frame Data: Forces opponent into crouching state on ground hit. 1st and 2nd hits have hitstop 7F. 3rd hit pulls in opponent on hit.

Lower than usual 6P meant for catching buttons more than jump-ins.

  • Upper body invul frames 1-20. Designed to beat other characters' farther f.Ss
  • Plus 2 on block, in case they didn't take the bait.
  • Both hits stagger on grounded CH for easier confirms
  • Gatlings from and to 2P for pressure cycles and repeated frame traps.

Typical style 6P for an infighter. The extensive upper body invul can be used to blow through projectiles. Eg. parry a meaty Charged Stun Edge and going into a 6P is a basic strategy against Ky.

16,26 Mid 6 4(6)8 20 -14 - 3

Fairly weak normal, but forces standing on hit.

  • Good for pressure after a blocked 5H.
  • Horribly unsafe, make sure you cancel into something else. Both hits are jump cancelable.
  • First hit has nonstandard hitstop which could make useful for an early cancel.
  • Forced standing might be useful to combo into TK Ryujin or something.
  • Notable for huge frame advantage for Jam after 6K(1) > 2D FRC. If FRC'd on the first frame, Jam is around +9 on normal block.

Mainly used as a blockstring option to gatling out of 5H and back to the beginning of the gatling ladder to continue pressure, 6K has value in an open gatling table that allows reverse gatlings and pressure resets. Can cancel into 2K or 2D for a low late into a blockstring, 2P for plus frames on block, or even on whiff to make 6K safe at longer ranges. Can be jump canceled for safety, to enable TK Gekirin, or IAD pressure resets. Long-range means it's likely to be in range after a blocked 5H(3). A utility normal that finds no real place in combos.


Gatling Options: 2P, 2K, c.S, f.S, 2S, 5H, 2H, 6H, 3H, 5D, 2D

A powerful explosive-force-stomp-plus-palm strike. Don't even read this. Just look at the hitbox.

  • One of the most oppressive normals in the game, both in neutral and in pressure.
  • Will sometimes hit behind Jam for some reason.
  • Throw invul through entire startup.
  • +3 on block. Doesn't lead to true blockstrings but it is good for frame traps, especially since it's Level 6 on block.
  • The hurtbox on Jam's lower body shrinks to her back leg, letting this move beat some low strikes.
  • Inordinate amounts of extra hitstun, especially on CH.
  • In CH state for the entire move, but will usually blow back through standard poking attempts like mashing 2P.
  • Slow enough that it can be Slashbacked if your opponent is sharp enough and looking for it. Don't get too predictable.


Gatling Options: 6HH

Additional Frame Data: Lower body invincible (except for back leg) 32~33F. Forces opponent into standing state on ground hit. Ground bounces opponent on air hit (Untechable for 32F). Hitstun 23F.

30×2 All 5 2(2)4 15+8 after landing -8 - 5

  • -8 on Block, -7 on Hit, +5 on CH. Can be spaced to be made as much as as -1 on block and ±0 on hit.
  • Airborne on the active frames makes this a decent high profile move.
  • 2nd Hit can be cancelled into a Carded kick.
  • This move in it of itself has a good mix-up when you have 50% Meter and cards. You can either do Carded Gekirin (High), RC into 5K (Low) or RC into Throw. Otherwise, somewhat mediocre.

Additional Frame Data Initial prorate 90%. Jam is in an airborne state during active frames. Jam is in crouching state during recovery. 2nd hit can be canceled into Charged Kick Specials.

28 Low 6 4 16 -6 - 3

Six frame sweep.

  • Extremely fast for a sweep and with great range for Jam.
  • Jump Cancellable to offset being unsafe.
  • Has an FRC right up until the first active frame, making for a terrifying pressure reset and mixup tool.
  • Combos to 236S~K, but timing is character specific.

A great button for Jam in general - a valuable poke in neutral, combo filler to confirm into carded Ryuujin on most of the cast, and is jump cancelable to enable pressure resets. Notable for having an FRC window starting frame 1, which means Jam can effectively FRC any normal that can gatling into 2D. Used this way, Jam gets huge frame advantage off of blocked normals, specifically 6K(1), 6P, and f.S. Because the window starts frame 1 and lasts 6 frames, it's easy to execute and allows pressure resets from any situation.

Additional Frame Data: FRC timing 1-6F.

Average throw but with free followups.

  • Generally leads to a super jump combo with a short air string or free Gekirin reset.
  • FRC leads to simpler and easier combo setups with a more lenient proration than most throws.
  • Throw itself deals no damage when FRC'd.

Without cards or meter, throw does not lead to a knockdown. With FRC and/or cards, throw becomes a terrifying damage threat for Jam, leading to full 2H > 6H wall-loop conversions and a hard knockdown. Due to Jam's strength as a strike/throw character, throw FRC is her most important FRC to learn, as the threat of it leads to more value from her numerous frametraps. As a visual cue for the FRC window, the window appears when Jam has fully retracted her legs in her animation, as she's about to kick her opponent.

Additional Frame Data: Forced prorate 50%, 70% if FRC'd.

Jam's unique power-up move, providing her the icon cards needed to expend for enhanced specials per card.

  • A big corner stone of Jam's game. If you don't have meter for 22D or want it to save it for something later, this is the way to go move after a knockdown.
  • Most characters will want to Play the Zoning and keep away game against Jam. If they are playing too passive against you, charging cards fullscreen will not only grant you cards, but also make them try to stop you, and Jam wants their opponents as close as possible.
  • Rule of thumb: if you don't have any charged cards already, you'll want to priotize Charged Ryuujin over Charged Kenroukaku, Charged Gekirin being the least important.

Additional Frame Data: Jam gets a charge on 53F. Can store up to 3 charges for each special. K for Ryuujin, S for Gekirin, H for Kenroukaku.

DISCLAIMER: Ryuujin, Gekirin and Kenroukaku all have different effects when done as part of an IAD, and all charged kicks can be comboed from their normal version, charged version and Force Break Hyappo Shinshou (236S>D), so whenever this guide mentions it, we assume you read this

Conversion and punish tool.

  • Mostly overshadowed by the TK version of Ryuujin. Worse damage and frame data, although some combos, mostly max f.S > TK Ryuujin will fail where Ground Ryuujin succeeds.
  • Very Shitty Reversal, but you could technically get a CH punish out of it, and CH Ryuujin is pretty good

Additional Frame Data: Jam is airborne from 9F onwards. Wallbounces opponent on hit (untechable for 36F).


  • TK Ryuujin is a force to be reckoned with. A mainstay in Jam's combo game in conjuction of Powered Ryuujin
  • Using TK Ryuujin sparringly is a good way to maneuver around the field.
  • IAD Ryuujin stops Jam on her track, turning Aerial Ryuujin in a lingering hitbox meant to stop Anti Air and Air to Air attempts. This is horribly unsafe on whiff, but it's useful to keep in mind.

Additional Frame Data: Floats opponent on normal hit (untechable for 36F). Has a minimum height requirement.


  • Powered Ryuujin is one of Jam's most important moves. Great damage and combo potential. Learn to love this move.
  • Please note all version of Ryuujin hitboxes are not that great. There's no disjoint on them and alot of moves will beat them. Yolo Ryuujin at your own risk.

Additional Frame Data: Initial prorate 80%. Jam is airborne from 1F onwards. Wallsticks opponent on hit (untechable for 70F, sticks for 35F). Consumes one charge stock on 1F.

  • Unlike Grounded Ryuujin, there is no reason to pass the benefits of TK Gekirin. Simply ignore this.

Additional Frame Data: Jam is airborne from 4F onwards. Floats opponent on hit (untechable on ground hit for 28F). Startup to hit a crouching opponent is 21F (tested on Sol).


  • TK Gekirin has two main differences over grounded Gekirin. It's 1F airborne and it Groundbounces on hit, making it the preferred combo starter.
  • IAD Gekirin will make Jam plummet down instead of making an arc. Depending on how you time it, you can get an ambigous Cross-up.

Additional Frame Data: Groundbounces opponent on hit (untechable for 35F). Has a minimum height requirement


  • This Version is both a faster overhead and a better combo tool (with cards).

Additional Frame Data: Jam is airborne from 1F onwards. Floats opponent on hit (untechable for 60F). Uses up a charge stock on 1F. Charged Gekirin canceled from point blank 2D has startup 18F to hit a crouching opponent (tested on Sol).

Jam's reversal and sometimes anti air.

  • 623K > 623D turns this move from an annoying reversal to a downright nasty punish to meaties.

Additional Frame Data: Jam is airborne from 3F onwards. Floats opponent on hit (untechable for 22F). Hitstop 6F. Dizzy modifier x0.375.


  • Not very good on it's own aside from combos. You are probably looking for the IAD version
  • IAD Kenroukaku, Just Like IAD Gekirin, sends Jam downwards instead of upwards. Although the invincibility period is small, it may just be enough to beat some weaker grounded anti airs

Additional Frame Data: Floats opponent on hit (untechable for 22F). Hitstop 6F. Dizzy modifier x0.375. Has a minimum height requirement.


  • LOOK AT THAT INVINCIBILITY! This move eats meaties and abares for breakfast. Makes VV proud.
  • This is also a very big part of Jam's Aerial Combo game. Overall really Solid.

Additional Frame Data: Initial prorate 80%. Jam is airborne from 1F onwards. Floats opponent on hit (untechable for 90F). Hitstop 6F. Dizzy modifier x0.25. Uses up a charge stock on frame 1.

  • Bakushuu has 6 different follow-ups, P (Avoid) , K (Low), S (Puffball), H (Dash Twice then Puffball/Cross-up Puffball), D (FB Puffball), and 236P (Flip).
  • Bakushuu can also be canceled into Jam's carded kicks (236D, 214D, and 623D), and retains horizontal momentum to travel a surprising amount of space.

Additional Frame Data: Jam is in CH state until end of move. Can cancel into followups 6~24F.

Jam will dash twice when doing this move. If you are far away, normal version will come out.

  • It has some added benefits when compared to normal Puffball:
    • It's +4 on block
    • It will always wallbounce, be it a normal hit or a Counter hit.
    • Has an FRC point at 21~24F to do a throw on whiff or get better conversion on hit if done at the 24th frame.
  • This move is gimmicky as old hell and keen players will stop you on your tracks if you abuse it, so make sure you don't rely on it to close the gap too much.

Additional Frame Data: Wallbounces opponent on hit (untechable for 40F). Dizzy modifier x1.375. Initial prorate 75%. Can pass through opponent 2~11F. If Jam passes through opponent, she performs Senri Shinshou (Crossup) instead.


If Jam is close to the opponent, crossup version comes out.

  • It's generally a worse Puffball, except for one thing, the Dizzy Modifier is astonishingly high, and Jam's IK being one of the best in the game, any dizzy usually turns into a death scenario. Risky, but has its uses.

Additional Frame Data: Low profile for 6F while Jam reverses direction. Wallbounces opponent on hit (untechable for 32F). Dizzy modifier x1.5. Initial prorate 75%. Startup varies depending on distance from opponent.

The Divekick.

  • Weirdly enough, this is safer on block than on hit. Make sure to RC it.
  • This stalls air time, so it beats cleanly some anti airs.
  • When TK'd, this is technically Jam's Fastest overhead that hits a crouching opponent. It's no Gekirin in terms of reward, but it's a good game ender.

Additional Frame Data: Hitstop 5F. 1st hit has initial prorate 80%. Has a minimum height requirement. 2nd hit will only trigger if the 1st hit hits opponent (not block or whiff). Listed Frame Adv is for TK Houeikyaku performed as fast as possible (startup 14F).

  • You can do it on its own or After a Bakushuu, this being the only way to deal with sliding moves like Grand Viper, Robo-Ky's 2K, etc...
  • Normally, it travels diagonally up, with a bigger emphasis on verticality.
  • This can be changed however with its FRC point at 6~8F, sending Jam horizontally. Intended for cross-ups. This can be considered the only way to Attack high from a Bakushuu.

Additional Frame Data: Jam is airborne from 1F onwards. Can pass through opponent 1~17F. Jam is in CH state 1~5F. Auto Jump Installs. Can perform any action other than blocking or FD from 20F onwards.


  • Aerial Flip gives a bigger emphasis on horizontal movement. Great for avoiding certain moves.
  • IAD Choujin sends her straight down. Just like IAD Gekirin and Kenroukaku, great for cross-ups (If you haven't noticed yet, Cross-ups are Jam's thing).
  • Has the same FRC point as ground version, but it isn't really used.

Additional Frame Data: Jam can pass through opponent and in CH state from 1~18F. Cannot be used after a double jump. Can perform any action other than blocking or FD from 22F onwards.

Pilebunker 2.0

  • One of the best and most tilting Force Breaks in the game. Fast, leads to big damage, has a massive dizzy modifier, possesses tons of invincibility from frame 3 onward, and is completely safe on block to boot.
  • Not only does this make for an amazingly safe horizontal DP, this version of the Puffball can also cancel into 22X and any of Jam's charged kicks. If you got a CH from this move, you are allowed to grin maliciously. Great move.

Additional Frame Data: Untechable for 28F. Dizzy modifier x1.25. Initial prorate 85%. Can cancel into Asanagi no Kokyuu, Asanagi no Kokyuu - Kyoku, Charged Kick Specials.

Super Spirit Bomb Go.

  • Massive ki ball with startup throw invul, multiple hits, and vacuum, which leaves Jam at +1 to run a frametrap or mixup if they're scared.
  • Freezes opponent's inputs from the flash until the 2nd active frame.
    • Them not blocking beforehand means you get the hit, as long as Jam isn't sticking her face into a hitbox.
  • Hits a large area and can be difficult to avoid.
  • Will not cost tension if Jam is hit before the superflash.
  • Works as a decent pressure reset and just to let Jam resume her blockstrings/mix.

Additional Frame Data: Floats opponent on hit (untechable for 28F). Pulls in opponent on hit or block. Hitstop 0F. Opponent's inputs are frozen after superflash until 2nd active frame. 9th hit [Untranslated].

  • Leaps forward about a third of the screen, hitting backdashes or opponents committed to a move with an extended hurtbox if farther away.
  • Only does one hit on block, but connects into an animation with every hit if it connects.
  • It's quite possible for the opponent to fall out on air hit. Be prepared to RC if you have the meter.

Additional Frame Data: 2nd~11th hits have hitstop 6F. 12th~13th hits float opponent. 13th hit has dizzy modifier x0.25; all others have dizzy modifier x0.

  • Launches on hit for a full conversion with a 75% prorate.
  • Comes with an FRC point on the first hit for safety.

  • Very stubby range, take care not to get baited, and eye your tension to FRC if necessary.

Additional Frame Data: 1st hit staggers opponent on hit (max 35F). 2nd hit floats opponent. Both hits are untechable on air hit for 90F. 1st hit initial prorate 150%. 2nd hit forced prorate 75%. FRC timing 3~4F.

Jam's inner North Star.

  • Deals 100 points of damage, regardless of guts, defense or any proration. Very useful to confirm into to make sure that they're dead.
