Ky Kiske

Overview

Ky is one of the poster boys for the Guilty Gear series and fulfills the role of a simple, well rounded character.

Strengths
Midrange combat, Jack of all trades
Weaknesses

Movement Options
Double Jump, 1 Airdash, Dash Type: Run

Defense Modifier: x1.03

Guts Rating: ??

Backdash Invincibility: 1-9F


Durandal Call

Powered up projectiles

Ky can use specific attacks (5D, j.D, 236D) to summon small floating portals called Grinders that last for 2-3 seconds. Shoot a projectile through a Grinder and it will become stronger, giving Ky more versatility in his gameplay. Stun Edges become full screen beams for zoning, Charged Stun Edges become long lasting projectiles for okizeme, and Sacred Edge sticks the opponent to the wall for combos.

Move List

H: can block while standing

L: can block while crouching

F: can block while in the air only with Faultless Defense

All: can be blocked however

Normal Moves

5P
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
8 HLF - - 5 4 5 +1
  • Use for anti air when 6P would fail (opponent too close or in crossup scenarios)
  • Mashable attack when oppoent attempts tick throw and other setups

While useful, 5P is a "backup plan". Ky has stronger tools in most situations. Mash 5P when in the above scenarios.

5K
GGXRD Ky 5K.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
12 LF - - 5 8 7 -5
  • Fast standing low
  • Meaty 5K as okizeme

5K is often used in mixups (empty jump > 5K) as well as in okizeme when you don't have enough time to use Charged Stun Edge. Because 5K has lots of active frames, it can be used as a meaty to maintain frame advantage while performing okizeme.

c.S
GGXRD Ky cS.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
28 HLF - - 7 2 18 -1
  • Staple in combos and blockstrings due to being jump cancelable as well as having many gatling options
  • Option select throw by performing 6H~S or 4H~S.

When close to the opponent, press 6H~S or 4H~S to execute a throw. If the opponent dodges the throw (jumping, backdashing), then a c.S will come out instead! This is much faster that 5H or 6H and has more cancel options afterwards, making it a safer option overall than 4H/6H.

f.S
GGXRD Ky fS.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
28 HLF - - 10 6 19 -11
  • Fast long range harassment tool
  • On crouching hit, combos into 3H
  • Can be avoided with low profile attacks

Ky's farthest reaching ground normal and standard poking tools thanks to its long range. Use f.S at max range to lock down the opponent and prevent them from advancing/escaping.

Ky's hurtbox is extended very far forward during and after the attack, so opponets can punish this if used recklessly. Mix it up with 5H, 2S, and Stun Edge if they start to find ways around f.S.

5H
GGXRD Ky 5H.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
42 HLF - - 10 6 12 +1
  • Shorter range version of f.S with safer hurtbox and faster recovery
  • Occasional anti air tool

Long reaching normal that is safe on block. Use with f.S, 2S, and Stun Edge to stop the opponent from getting close to you.

6P
GGXRD Ky 6P.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
30 HLF - - 9 5 15 -6
  • Ky's main anti air attack
  • Occasional ground footsie tool

6P is your go-to anti air attack. Cancel into c.S and confirm whether the opponent was hit or not. On hit, perform a combo, on block, cancel into f.S > Stun Edge, or jump and air dash backwards.

6K
GGXRD Ky 6K.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
32 HLF - - 19 2 11 +4
  • Ky steps forward before attacking
  • Pressure reset tool
  • c.S > 6K > 236D, 2D > 236H for knockdown plus Charged Stun Edge okizeme.

Because this attack is plus on block and moves Ky forward, this allows Ky to start a new blockstring afterwards. The downside is its slow startup will lose to jumping/backdashing/mashing, so the opponent must be conditioned to block before this can be effectively used.

6H
GGXRD Ky 6H.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
30x2 HLF - - 23 8,1 3 +15
  • Okizeme tool
  • Forces opponent into crouching state on ground hit, enabling combos into f.S > 3H

Strong Okizeme tool that when timed correctly will beat most reversals, with the notable exception of Blitz Shield! Because this attack has such short recovery, whiffing a 6H on oki can be used as a fakeout!

3H
GGXRD Ky 3H.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
35 HLF - - 15 4 25 -12
  • Combos from f.S on crouching hit and counter hit
  • On hit, combo into Greed Sever. On block, cancel into Stun Edge to remain safe
5D
GGXRD Ky 5D.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
25 HF - - 28 13 11 -5
  • Standing overhead
  • Summons a Grinder

Ky can summon Grinders faster with Split Ciel (236D) so it's not recommended for much other than the occasional sneaky unexpected overhead.

Dead Angle Attack
GGXRD Ky 6P.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
25 HLF - - 12 3 24 -13

Standard Dead Angle.

2P
GGXRD Ky 2P.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
6 HLF - - 5 4 4 +2
  • Fast mashable attack to interrupt blockstrings and tick throws
2K
GGXRD Ky 2K.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
14 LF - - 5 4 6 ±0
  • Low attack that reaches farther than 5K
2S
GGXRD Ky 2S.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
25 LF - - 9 2 15 -3
  • Long range Low
  • Harrasment tool along with f.S and 5H.

Use this attack to stop advancing opponents who try do low profile attacks to go under f.S and 5H. On block, cancel into Stun Edge to make it safe. On hit, cancel into 2D or Stun Dipper to combo into knockdown.

2H
GGXRD Ky 2H.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
28x2 HLF - - 11 1,4 20 -7
  • Pulls in opponent on air hit
  • Launches and pulls in opponent on Counter Hit
  • Jump cancellable

Used in combos and as a preemptive anti air attack since it hits much farther and higher than 6P. Use it to hit opponents who like to jump around outside of 6P range.

2D
GGXRD Ky 2D.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
30 LF - - 7 12 12 -10
  • Fast long range sweep
  • 2D > Charged Stun Edge for Oki
j.P
GGXRD Ky jP.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
6 HA - - 6 6 6 -
  • Occasional anti-air
  • Cancels into itself and j.S, and j.S can cancel into j.P.

This is a safe, but low reward anti air when the opponent attempts to perform delayed jump-in attacks.

When you catch an opponent blocking in the air, mash j.P > j.S > j.P until you touch the ground for a

j.K
GGXRD Ky jK.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
16 HA - - 7 4 12 -
  • Long range air attack
  • Cancel into j.S to and confirm into combo or jump away.

j.K is very fast and hits very far, making it a great for air-to-air encounters.

j.S
GGXRD Ky jS.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
28 HA - - 7 3 21 -
  • Jump-in tool

Ky's standard jump-in attack. Jump cancelable as well, making a core part of air combos.

j.H
GGXRD Ky jH.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
38 HA - - 13 4 23 -
  • Zoning tool. Safe, long range, low reward

j.H hits very far as well as slightly below Ky. It can even beat anti air attacks when positioned properly at max range! For the most part, Ky uses this right before landing when jumping to control the space in front of him.

j.D
GGXRD Ky jD.png
Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
40 - - - 38 13 25 Total + 8 after landing -
  • Stationary projectile for zoning
  • Creates a Grinder afterwards
  • Disappears if Ky gets hit
  • Has landing recovery unless you perform a double jump after j.D

The cross has considerable startup, so it's best to use this from a distance. j.D creates a Grinder which will stay out longer than the actual attack, allowing you to immediately use Air Stun Edge afterwards for a powered up shot! Be aware that j.D suspends Ky in the air briefly during the animation. This move generally sees it's use for zoning and okizeme.

Special Moves

Stun Edge
236S
GGXRD Ky StunEdge.png
GGXRD Ky StunEdge2.png
Version Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
Normal 30 - - - 10 Until Corner Total 46 -10
  • Zoning tool, blockstring ender
  • YRC to recover faster and still have the projectile active
  • Can be avoided with low profile moves

One of Ky's classic tools for zoning, midscreen,and blockstrings. Should be used after blocked normals to make them safe or to YRC which can be used in combos and blockstrings. With this YRC, Ky has the option to immediately react to incoming hits to effectively avoid damage or attempt an anti-air if they choose to jump over it. Be careful, as certain moves that low profile can completely duck the Stun Edge and even characters such as Faust who can crouch under it with ease.

Durandal Call 40 - - - ~+9 3 - +5
  • Becomes a full-screen beam
  • Knocks down opponent
  • Can be avoided with low profile moves

Using a Stun Edge with Durandal Call grants a noticeable buff. It becomes much faster, leads to knock down, and can stuff other projectiles. An interesting thing to note is that it has been shown to ignore Potemkin's F.D.B. projectile when it's active.

Charged Stun Edge
236H
GGXRD Ky ChargedStunEdge.png
GGXRD Ky ChargedStunEdge2.png
Version Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
Normal 20x3 - - - 38 Until Corner Total 69 +5
Durandal Call 20x6 - - - ~+9 59 - +18

A charged version of Ky's Stun Edge that moves across the screen horizontally with full range but is larger and slower than the normal variant. Hits three times instead of one, and is mainly used for okizeme after knockdown. This move will allow ample time to further assault the opponent if they are blocking or being hit. Be careful as this move has a slower startup and is risky if used too close. To fix this, it can be YRC'd which not only makes it safer, but usable for blockstrings. This, just like 236S can be avoided by low profile moves. Combining a Grinder with 236H will cause it to generate more hits, move faster, and deal more damage. The time during the opponent's blockstun caused by this is more than enough time to go for a mixup. The blast caused by this will not travel full screen, but will quickly hit a large area in front of Ky and stay for a period of time. This too, can be low profiled. You can used this as sort of an anti-air and wait for enemies to land on it and watch them bounce hilariously if they're hit.

  • Main use is for okizeme after knockdown
  • both can be avoided with low profile moves
  • List interesting properties in bullet points like invul, floating opponents on CH, etc.

12, 32 - - - 5 14(7)3 26 -15

A low profile dash that leads to knockdown where 2D won't reach. The slide is a low and the slash hits mid. The slide from this move will completely avoid certain attacks because of the small hitbox. Be aware that if this move is used too close, the second hit won't combo, so only use it after gatlings where 2D won't knockdown. Feel free to do an okizeme right after.

  • low profiles many moves in the game
  • Used to ensure knockdown where 2D won't reach
