    I was just wondering cause I was really good with Lion then all of a sudden I couldnt win a single match.

    I'd love to hear from you.

    it becomes somewhat easy when you learn the ai weak spots.

    hope this helps
    i am not a very good player, so i think there should be some people here with better advises.
    *sorry my poor english

    1- try going for a throw after you knock down the opponent, be prepared to defend a rising attack
    2- when you have the distance do f,f,K,K. If the enemy defend the first kick, wait a little before you imput the second kick, they often fall for it
    3- use a lot of low punches and mid kick to try to set for a throw or just K,K
    4- if you get to do this throw (d,f,P+G) try to follow up with b,f,K+G and u,P or f,f,K,K and db,P,P(or d,K+G)

    Start the match with d+K+G to knock them down. Then when they get up from a TR(usually) do b,f+K+G - the opponrnt will block that but will eat a K (with BT) immediately after pretty much everytime. Try doing that over and over again.

    If that doesn't work and you get in a jam do P, P, P. Blocked or not follow it up with QCB+P when they try to counter attack. When the sabaki lands do the f, f+K, K (or combo of your choice) to knock them down. When they TR try the previous method I mentioned earlier again.

    I had a tough time around 8th Dan, but finally just made 9th Dan.

    anyway, AI weaknesses:

    1. abuse u+K,K, pounce. i win most matches abusing this.
    2. round opener 1 - P+K, pounce or u+P+K, pounce
    3. round opener 2 - b,b+K, D+k,k
    4. round opener 3 - b, df+p, pounce

    these are my sure things usually.

    I use u,P+K -> f,f, K,K alot, this got me too 10th Dan, but then I got tired of Lion, so I started using other people.

    High King,
    641-18 97% Win percentage,
    32 items.
    Lion rules. He is fun as hell to play as. Still have a bit of trouble getting my last few orbs, I'm on my 3rd set. I will not stop until its done and I have eveything.

    Try this combo on the Kumite character.. most of the time you will get it...

    After the "Ready, Go!!!" do this
    P+K, b,f+P+K,P,P, then f+P+K (delay for a while in order to get the following K a high MC, also this move only a setup, it not suppose to hit),K, then d/f,D/F,f+P (crouching dash with upper-cut) then f,f+K,K... almost 70% damage /versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    if you in a small arena with wall, after the d/f, D/F, f+P, do a b,f+P+K, b,f+P+K, P,P,P (work with light character only)

    Actually, d/f D/F, f+p, b,f+P+K, b,f+P+K, b,f+P+K,P,P works on mids and can be done open screen. Heavys you can just leave out the first b, f+P+K.

    I'm up to Subjagator with him myself (446-43), and in my experience, u+k,k-u+p is the biggest weaknes in the AI, abuse this move 'till the cows come home (or something like that). One of my other fav. juggle combos is b,b+k-p+k-f,f+k,k-d+k+g or d+k,k-u+p. I hope some of these help out.

    A word of warning though: Though these moves may work quite well against the AI, a human will catch on after just ONE try almost all the time... so remember to mix it up when it's the real thing... don't say I didn't warn you...

    /versus/images/commands/b.gif/versus/images/commands/b.gif/versus/images/commands/k.gif,/versus/images/commands/p.gif+/versus/images/commands/k.gif,/versus/images/commands/f.gif/versus/images/commands/f.gif/versus/images/commands/k.gif/versus/images/commands/k.gif is my favorite combo with Lion too. I've found it's easy to hit them when they're coming after you after you back dash, and also sometimes right after connecting with /versus/images/commands/f.gif/versus/images/commands/p.gif+/versus/images/commands/k.gif,/versus/images/commands/k.gif. You have to vary your routine of course, but I've found it to be his best combo against any kumite opponent.

    High King Lion, 1150-140, 88% average. I found it easy to trick out my opponents every time in the matches. A good technique for the A.I. to just punch with lion and instantly grab them after. i also like starting off a match with /versus/images/commands/b.gif/versus/images/commands/b.gif/versus/images/commands/k.gif/versus/images/commands/k.gif and then /versus/images/commands/f.gif/versus/images/commands/f.gif/versus/images/commands/k.gif/versus/images/commands/k.gif and then finish off with a pounce jump. it works well.
