Overview
Ken is an Echo Fighter of Ryu, and as such he naturally has several similarities to Ryu, but Ken also has several unique traits of his own. He is generally more grounded fighter due to his poor air acceleration and fixed jump arc, as these poor stats can be taken advantage of by a lot of the cast. Ken instead applies pressure with his safe, fast tilts and use of special canceling. He has the ability to cancel the recovery of some attacks with the start of any one of his five command input specials, or four special moves. At medium range, Oosoto Mawashi Geri (Roundhouse) is an integral move for Ken because of its disjointedness, cancelability into Inazuma Kick, and intangibility.

At close range, Light DTilt is important for Ken because of its fast startup and special cancel properties. At full stage, walking is good for Ken because it keeps him grounded and gives access to all of his neutral abilities for reacting to the opponent's actions. NAir is one of Ken’s best aerials, because of its relatively fast frame data and because it is special cancellable. With good spacing, this move can become very safe and end up forcing the opponent into shielding. With bad spacing, Ken can cancel NAir into something potentially safer. Ken uses spacing and speed to put the opponent into a disadvantage, then keep them in disadvantage to eventually land a KO.

Ken will want to mix offensive and defensive play in order to win, using defensive moves to stop the opponent from hitting Ken or using the opponent's offense against them to bait them into a bad position. Ken uses both conditioning and reads to know when and where the opponent will be before they are actually there. This can lead to very high payoffs, however making the wrong read can be just as deadly. This character is for people who enjoy a steep learning curve, enjoy traditional fighting games, or enjoy a satisfying challenge.

Summary
Ken is a bait and punish character that, through neutral, finds openings to create strong advantage states to KO the opponent.
Pros Cons
  • Good frame data: Ken has multiple grounded moves that are frame 3 or faster. Due to special canceling, just about everything can be plus on block with a few exceptions.
  • Amazing punish game: 50% off of one combo is the norm for Ken. Reading escape options can easily be another 40%. On top of that, his kill moves start to kill as early as 50% on bad DI, which he can cause with DI mixups and SDI counterplay.
  • Amazing shield pressure: Ken has a lot of moves that either do a lot of shield damage or lead into a move that does a lot of shield damage. This makes getting shield breaks pretty easy and getting shield pokes into kills pretty easy.
  • Good setplay: Due to the good punish game and good shield pressure, the opponent basically doesn’t want to be near Ken. This can be used to Ken’s advantage to corner the opponent and block their escape attempts, leading to damage and kills.
  • High execution: Motion inputs, although simple and made easier to do in Smash, can be misinputted in the heat of a game. Pair this with multiple bugs and game design decisions that relate to Ken and Ryu, and a lot of actions become a nuisance to execute.
  • Unorthodox playstyle: Ken cannot play the same way normal smash characters play. This is mainly due to his low air acceleration turning his jumps into predictable arcs. Pair that with his great ground mobility and it is clear that he is not meant to play neutral in the air like everyone else.
  • Bad disadvantage: Despite having a frame 1 combo escape move with Focus Attack, it does limit Ken’s movement while also losing to multihits. Offstage recovering is worse with Tatsumaki Senpukyaku which moves slow, making edge guarding easy. This can often force Ken to take risks and mix his resources up to make it back to stage.
  • Suffers from SDI: A lot of Ken’s moves have high SDI multipliers. This makes all combos not true with the correct SDI.
Auto-turnaround
Auto-turn forces Ken to face his opponent at all times, and happens whenever Ken is not in lag for any reason. Auto-turn can be beneficial but does have some drawbacks.
  • Neutral
    • Auto-turn also causes the FGCs ( Ryu, Ken, Terry, and Kazuya) to be able to walk backwards while facing forwards. This can be used for micro spacing, as Ken has a fast initial walk speed. This also messes with their backdash. On the first 3 frames of backdash, Ken actually walks before doing the backdash.
    • Auto-turn also requires RARA tech that allows for approaching your opponent with your back turned, out of a forward run. to be done correctly in order for them to turn around and jump. This makes doing BAir in neutral and in combos a lot harder than other characters, as other characters can mess up the RARA tech that allows for approaching your opponent with your back turned, out of a forward run. in some way and still be able to get a BAir in their intended direction.
  • OOS
    • Ken can release shield and then do USmash or jump to do an auto-turn before doing the following action while also skipping No results frames.
    • Ken cannot do auto-turn Grab or any other auto-turn attacks No results without going through No results frames.
Input System
Light/Heavy Normals

Ken has access to light and heavy jabs and tilts.

  • Accessed by letting go of the attack button or CStick within the first 5 frames of startup.
  • For light normals, they will transition into the first frame of their move as soon as the attack button is released.
    • For example, if CStick up was held for 2 frames to get a LUTilt, on frame 3, the hitbox for LUTilt will not come out. The hitbox will come out 3 frames later as LUTilt has 3 frames startup. This can be fixed by buffering the light tilt.
    • Can cause medium tilts.
      • Holding the CStick up for 4-5 frames will give Ken the upper body intangibility of HUTilt, but because the CStick was released before frame 6, it will transition to LUTilt.

Proximity Normals

Ken has access to proximity normals, being Proximity Heavy Jab (PJab) and Proximity Light FTilt (PTilt).

  • They are accessed by doing the corresponding attack while close to the opponent, and both are meant for special canceling into specials for combos.
  • Limits to proximity detection:
    • Buffering attacks will lock the proximity detection to what it was at the beginning of the buffered sequence.
      • For example, buffering dash walk LUTilt > PJab can give you a LUTilt > HJab because all moves were buffered and the LUTilt was pressed when Ken was outside of proximity range.

Command Input Specials - Command inputs are important to learn as some specials are only input specials. Input specials have an added damage multiplier on them, and some input specials have better stats like extra intangibility. Numpad notation is the easiest way to describe inputs.

Light/Medium/Heavy Specials - Ken has access to 3 versions of each special: light, medium, and heavy. Each version has different properties.

Negative Edge - Negative edge is a way to do specials by releasing the attack buttons instead of pressing the buttons.

Typically, negative edge is considered bad and not useful at all, as it will always give the light version of the special. The most common occurrence of negative edge is when trying to recover to stage with USpecial but getting hit right before inputting USpecial and while in hitstun, the Ken player will release the attack button and the buffer system outputs Light Shoryuken, causing Ken to not reach the ledge and No results.
Command Input Specials
Doing a command input with the control stick then pressing the A or B button (or sometimes grab button) will result in Ken doing that corresponding special. Doing the command input will give a damage boost to the special and some specials can only be done with command inputs.

Note that 6 is forward and 4 is backwards. Another common way to write inputs is in Tekken notation. Tekken notation is just the first letter of each direction with diagonals being the first letter of each cardinal direction separated by a slash (e.g. down-forward = d/f).

Note that command inputs in Smash are very lenient. All inputs do not need the final horizontal input and can finish on the diagonal down input with the exception of half circle inputs (41236/63214). Inputs that start on a horizontal input can start on the diagonal down input. (examples: half circles can be done by doing 1236 and Shoryuken (DP)s can be done by doing 323, and extra inputs in the middle can be included in the input. (Example: DPs can be done by doing 6236 or 63236.
Special Canceling
Ken can cancel the endlag of most normals into a special. All moves that are special cancellable can become a lot safer. They are special cancellable on the first frame of hitstunA state that a character is in put after getting hit, which the afflicted character cannot act at all./shieldstunA short state that a character is in put after shielding an attack, which the afflicted character cannot act at all., so on shield they become +[frames of shieldstun] on block. Example: Jab 1 has 3 frames of shieldstunA short state that a character is in put after shielding an attack, which the afflicted character cannot act at all. but is -10 on shield. When special canceled, it becomes +3 on shield.


Note: The inputs shown are when Ken is facing to the right.

Jab 1

  • Tied for fastest grounded move with LDTilt.
  • Interruptible into Jab 2 during frames 6-28
  • Special cancellable
    • doesn’t give enough hitstun for most specials to properly combo.
  • Startup of the move starts when the attack button is released.

This move is a fast combo starter and combo filler. When doing Jab 2 the Attack button must be pressed quickly or else the opponent will be able to shield before Jab 2 hits. The best way to avoid this is to tap the attack button twice then hold the second button press.

Jab 2

  • Interruptible into Jab 3 during frames 6-28
  • Special cancellable

Always link Jab 1 into Jab 2 because most specials off of Jab 1 aren't even true combos. When doing Jab 3 the Attack button must be pressed quickly or else the opponent will be able to shield before Jab 3 hits. The best way to avoid this is to continue holding the attack button after tapping it a second time (to do Jab 2).

  • Special Cancellable

This move is the best move for combos as it does no knockback and a lot of damage and it is special cancellable. That being said, it is flawed for being a proximity normal. The best way to get this move to hit is with LUTilt > PJab, but that doesn’t true combo until 74% (but catches frame 3 escape options at 45%). The next best thing is to do an aerial into PJab, which will be hard to hit if the opponent knows how to SDI well.

This is a pretty standard Dash Attack. Use it for catching landings and whiff punishing. Basically, if a normal tilt is too slow to punish something, then do Dash Attack. Dash attack can be used as a true combo finisher after Crescent Kick. The late hitting sour spot sends the opponent straight up which can start juggles or into a kill if the opponent isn’t ready for it.

This is the PJab substitute. This move faces the same problems of being a proximity normal but unlike PJab, this move is faster, and if proximity detection doesn’t give PTilt, LFTilt does put the opponent in a favorable position to continue pressure. Being faster, LFTilt > PTilt becomes a true combo at 32%. The trade off is that it does not have a large hitbox so it is not likely to combo off aerials that pop the opponent up.

This move is used for spacing. The entire leg is intangible, so it can be used to stop opponents from running up to you with an attack. It has a tipper sweet spot at the foot that will send the opponent straight up. This is ideal for air combos like majin airlines. The sour spot sends at a more outward angle which cannot be comboed off of, but dashing in afterwards can put the pressure on the opponent to make a risky getaway option.

LUTilt is fast, safe, and hits high. LUTilt is used for shield pressure, combos, and anti-airing. It is very versatile. It combos into the proximity normals and some aerials, or, if it hits a shield, it can be linked into HUTilt, or DSmash to do a shield break string or it can be mashed on shield to catch jumps OOS because of how safe it is when canceled into itself. The downside is that this move loses hard to SDI.

This move is just about identical to PJab in every way except HUTilt has knockback. Also, it not being a proximity normal makes it better for shield break strings, as HJab will not come out ruining the shield break string. The upper body intangibility makes this move really good for anti-airing opponents who want to land on top of Ken.

  • Special Cancellable
    • Kara cancel has special effects

DSmash is Ken’s longest range poke. The 7.0.0 buff made this move amazing. On block, it can be canceled into RHIZ for amazing shield damage. On hit, at low percents it can combo into roundhouse on most characters and Hado on all. At mid percents it will send into a tech chase and should be canceled into Hado to jab lock them or cover tech in place, or Tatsu to quickly approach the opponent. At high percents, it should be canceled into Hado to cover a double jump when the opponent is off stage. This move, like all moves, can be kara canceled, but DSmash gets better use from it due to the special properties it gives Tatsu, and that DSmash can be charged to bait the opponent to drop their guard then kara canceled to get a strong hit or KO.

NAir is Ken’s safest aerial. That being said, it is not as safe as it seems. To get NAir to be -2, it has to hit as low as possible. Otherwise it will be anywhere from -9 to -5 on average. NAir combos into grounded moves, sets up tech chases, and air-to-airs. It is a very versatile move. Although it has lots of uses, it is very small. It will be beat out by anything that is faster than it or has more range than it. Also, the hitbox being small makes anti-airing NAir from the ground easy, especially because of Ken’s bad air acceleration.

FAir is great for air-to-airing because of its large range forward. But it really shines when using it to start combos. Hitting the knee hitbox, often called sour FAir or ass FAir, pops the opponent up like DAirdoes allowing combos into LUTilt, PJab, or aerials depending on the percent. Where it falls behind is its safety. Although ass FAir does a lot of shield damage, it is not the safest on shield leaving Ken up close and -6 on block. This can be fixed by special canceling.

BAir is Ken’s best move locked behind auto-turn. It has amazing range, amazing safety, combos at early percents, and kills at late percents. Doing RAR with characters with auto-turn will take some practice as messing it up, even a little, will not cause them to turn around. The simplest way to do it is to do a half-circle back then jump and Ken will jump straight up facing away from the opponent. Learning IRAR is also very important as BAir is a great ender after CK.

Hadouken is Ken’s main zoning move. It should be used sparingly when the opponent is far away and cannot jump in to punish it. Doing the input vs. just pressing the B button does not change the speed or size of the hitbox, but only the damage it deals. Hadouken can also be used for jab locks. Light Hadouken can also be used for approaching because of its slow speed. Doing an aerial Hado allows you to drift forward or backwards while doing it. This is called Hadouken hover.

  • Great kill power
  • Strong anti-air

Ken’s main kill move. It is great to use in combos and great to use as a hard read anti-air as the final hit does the most knockback. It does a lot of damage and kills early, but survivability against it can be increased by a lot by DIing down and slightly away (~23 degrees away from the vertical down axis). SDIing in can cause the opponent to fall out making the final hit whiff. This can be countered by either doing a B-reverse Shoryu or a m.Shoryu. Ken can also set up to make Shoryuken hit the final anti-air hitbox which will have a better chance at KOing since the opponent will be closer to the blast zone. When standing on the ledge and doing a Shoryuken for a kill, release the stick until after the flames disappear, then drift back to the ledge to grab it. Pressing forward or backwards while the flames are out will cause Ken to drift forward putting him out of range to grab the ledge and survive.

When off stage trying to recover, Shoryuken does not snap to ledge. Using l.Shoryu and m.Shoryu will cause Ken to go not as high as h.Shoryu but this can be better to prevent two framing. Using input Shoryu to recover is also good as his arm is intangible from 1-15 so that Ken can punch the opponent off the ledge as he recovers. Also note that the horizontal ledge grab range is really large, so Ken can space out to make two frame attempts miss. And if Ken finishes Shoryuken with his shoulders above the ledge, his ledge grab will be fully intangible as it will count as grabbing ledge from above.

Level 3 17.0 12-13 55 45 UNBLOCKABLE Full heavy armor while charging: 1-59, Full heavy armor during attack: 1-11
  • Frame 1 heavy armor
    • How armor works:

Focus Attack has armor that can be broken one of two ways: Either by hitting Ken twice, or by hitting Ken with a single strike that deals a higher percent damage than its threshold. Focus Attack's threshold starts at 14.0% and increases by ~0.24 every frame, scaling to 28.0% as it's fully charged. During the move, Ken will flash twice denoting a change in level. After the second flash, Ken will launch the level 3 attack automatically. Level 1 and 2 has no armor, Level 3 has armor on frames 1-10; the dash has no armor.

  • Can be dash canceled
    • How to dash cancel:

By tapping forward or backwards twice, Ryu/Ken will do a Focus Attack Dash Cancel, or FADC for short, and they will dash in the direction that was tapped twice in. This can be done after landing any level of Focus Attack, or during frames 26-58 while charging the attack before it is released (Input can be buffered starting frame 19). If an attack was armored with Focus, Ryu/Ken can still FADC afterwards. If Ryu/Ken launches the attack but it hits nothing, they cannot FADC.

  • Does a lot of shield damage
    • Level 3 does no shield damage but is unblockable
  • Level 1 launches opponents, Level 2 and 3 crumples opponents.
    • When level 2 or 3 hits an aerial opponent, they will be stunned in place before being launched
    • More info:

Before the first flash of Focus Attack, the move will deal knockback (Called FA1 or FADC1). After the first flash, it will crumple a grounded opponent or stun an aerial opponent (Called FA2 or FADC2), after which they can do a miss tech option (if grounded) or they are sent flying. After the second flash, the opponent will be crumpled or stunned for a long time before they fall or fly away (Called FA3 or FADC3), giving Ken a longer time to punish.

  • To get Level 1, release the special button during frames 1-30
  • To get Level 2, release the special button during frames 31-58
  • To get Level 3, hold the special button for 59 frames or longer

Focus Attack is the swiss army knife tool. But just like swiss army knives, it can hurt you if used incorrectly. It has frame 1 heavy armor that can be used to get out of disadvantage. It can be used off stage to stall as it slows down Ken’s fall speed for a little. It can be B-reversed and wave-bounced to mix up momentum when being juggled, then it can be dash canceled to mix up momentum again. It can be used in advantage state to get a hard read into a high damage punish. And it can be used in neutral to beat out attacks. Where it hurts is that its armor only tanks one hit. That means that the opponent can do two attacks and the second attack will launch Ken like normal. Or the opponent does a multihit attack and it will launch Ken like normal. Using Focus Attack slows Ken down and locks Ken into focus for 26 frames before he can attack or dash cancel which will lock him into more endlag. This makes Focus Attack reactable.

Inazuma Kick is used for doing shield breaks. It does a lot of shield damage, and if it doesn’t break, it will leave them with very little shield health. The nature of the hitbox can also cause shield pokes which is also beneficial at high percents because of the angle Inazuma Kick sends at. It can also catch the opponent releasing shield and hit them for it.

Pummel 1.3 1 6 361 -2 N/A

Because of Ken’s lack of kill throws, pummels should definitely be used at high percents. At low percents, not using a Pummel is appropriate to try and catch the opponent DIing DThrow in to try and get a mixup string.

This also sends the opponent upwards, but at low percents, it is possible to get a Roundhouse Kick if the opponent doesn’t DI or air dodge through it. Ken can also get an UAir if the opponent isn’t ready for it. At mid percents, if the opponent is DIing in Shoryuken can catch them and they will die from DIing Shoryuken in. The throw has a hitbox that is very small and will most likely not hit anyone, but it will hit shields and it does full shield damage. This is really only useful against Ice Climbers.
