    So, what do you think is the best move in VF3?

    I think it's Akiras SPOD, it's very quick and does good

    I am going to have to say Shun's "Drunk Sweeps" not only can you tack them on to the end almost all of Shun's moves they are also not reversable and if that is not enough after you connect with them I am 99 percent sure Shun's df+p ground hit is guaranteed:)

    Without a doubt, Wolf's Giant Swing. A close second though would be Taka's f,f+p... I love that silly fat man.

    For me, I think it will be Kage's TFT. You can set up many wonderful combos after a TFT.

    The best move in VF3 is everyone's PG, maybe except Lion's and Shun's.

    I'd have to agree with LOw_RyDer and say that Wolf's Giant Swing is the best move in VF3. Extreme damage, excellent RO potential, and easy to pull off (in comparison to Akira's SPoD).
    Jacky's elbow-heelkick ain't too shabby either. Overused but effective, and the pounce is guaranteed.
    Outside of the SPoD, I think Akira's f,b P+G pull-in throw is up there with the best moves in VF. Combining it with a DE will stun, and can open up a lot of possibilities(CD, attack, ST, Guard Break, etc.)
    Just my two cents./versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    Participating for the hell of it (though I honestly don't have a true opinion of "best move")...

    Lion's f+P+E
    So much BS you can cause with this simple little move. Screw up tracking, ura (though not that good except in some cases), confuse an opponent (unless they already know) what position you are in if you do this while TA--you'll be lined up for normal attacks after doing this from TA, etc.. A big BS move, but it's often the BS that some of us get hooked on, is it not?

    Akira's Guard-Break
    For me at least, it's the most frustrating thing to deal with. At least in the hands of someone who knows how to use it. Remember when Jo Shun posted "may as well play Street Fighter" (well, something along those lines). Adds to my motto of: "don't f*** up against Akira" (or Kage).

    Yeah, yeah, these were all in there since VF2.


    P.S. Does fuzzy guard count?/versus/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Allow me to stray from the subject briefly./versus/images/icons/crazy.gif
    In ura, which do you think is more effective: Lion's f+P+E, or u/b+E, d+P+E?

    I'm no expert at it. Depends on your opponent though. Is he expecting certain types of ura? Does he get up certain ways? What ura situations does he know?

    No ura is guaranteed so effectiveness depends on the situation. However, besides the commonly known P+G-->dodge-->f+P+E (which works nicely and if your opponent didn't handle it properly you get a free u+P+K), my other attempts at ura may have worked with f+P+E... but often it's a situation where the amount of time lost in doing so is not worth it and my opponent actually gets the advantage.

    d+P+E is a nice okizeme me thinks.

    ub+E has worked very nicely for ura too.

    Again, depends on situation and circumstance.

    Shun-di's Rollattack(Handstand then P+K) foollowed by a Sideechchangethrow( df P+G)followed with a Backthrow or Neckkick(ub +K) ....... very cooooool, sadly works only against beginners hehehe.

    I think the best moves in VF3 are the reversals. Those are really the moves that set this game apart from all other fighters. While most other games focus squarely on offense in order to placate instant-gratification channel surfers, VF3's reversals and Inashis give an added emphasis on defense. The simple result is that reckless button-mashers are mauled.

    That's just my two cents.

    I think the coolest looking move in VF3tb is Taka's Back Low throw, that's one of the best throws I've ever seen.

    It will be Dural's P,P, f+P, b+K.

    It usually hits the opponent 100% of the time. In VF2 you only had to do it twice to K.O the opponent, and if you're moderately close to the ring edge, just one of these would knock the pants of 'em.

    > Yeah, yeah, these were all in there since VF2.

    But had totally different properties, except in case of Akira's BG which was a throw...

    The pounce isn't really GUARANTEED... just look at CPU. Even with perfect execution u+P, you can sideroll out of it.

    Let's say I'm Kage... if your DE doesn't knock me down (and it won't if you execute it as quick as possible), I'm at +3 frames. Kage's elbow eliminates all your options except 1/ dash back 2/ E to my open site 3/ block 4/ take-off kick. Use SDE instead, at least it knocks down and is guaranteed :)

    I disagree. Many other games have reversal- and inashi-type moves, except the newer ones... and in VF3 they are usually not worth it, even vs. mashers - just float them and combo. Any character can do that if you know the right move :p

    As someone who practises Aikido . I have to say that I like Aoi's High-Punch(LP,RP) back reversal la lot(Standing with her back against the opponent)
