TEKKEN7 FR Bob tutorial-Theory
Doctor’s max rank of Bob in TEKKEN7
Character aspects(min:1, max:5)
Not so good.
Bob has Right Upper
but they can be
only when counter hit.
It is mid attack without Block Punishment,
and it is a combo launcher
in normal hit.
is also a mid attack
and a combo launcher.
And for the low attacks,
Seppia Swing(f,d,d/f+4,1+2) .
It is not a combo launcher,
but I think it is enough for Bob.
Bob has many good Whiff attacks.
is a combo launcher.
Its command is easy.
It has risk for punishment,
so try not to use it
when you are not sure.
Cracker Jacker(u/f+1+2, 1+2)
has a long range.
Although it has risk
in the second hit,
you can stop at first,
or you can input 4(high attack with no punish).
See above. When you do it, backstep first.
See above. Try to see whether they move or not.
And from crouching,
Spinach Upper(2,1 during rising)
is also useful.
Like Cracker Jacker,
you can stop at the first attack
when you are not sure.
is a combo launcher in CH.
And Bynhme Strike(1+2 while sidestep).
Hot Croos Bun(b,f+1).
They are not bad,
but Bob is not very good at evasions,
so I scored 3 out of 5.
It is between 3 and 4.
Bob has no combo launcher for
15 frames punish.
But for 12 frames punish,
Circle Whopper(f+2,3) is useful.
For sure Bob has many
I will tell you below.
1.Get the chance for the Whiff Attack
Bob needs to create the
moments for Whiff Attacks.
See this link which I wrote for Whiff Attack.
TEKKEN basic tutorial: Whiff attack
And Bob is not very handy with “Mixup”,
so try to get damage by Whiff Attack.
Whenever you crouch the 1,2, get big damage!
2. Small punches available
Bob has many good punch combinations.
you can stop during
or you can finish them.
1,1,2 or 1,4(for punishment)
1,d+4 (jab and low kick)
once a famous Japanese
TEKKEN player was using
Bob at TEKKEN6.
It was his first time
using Bob on that day.
The player was using,
1, and 1,d+4, and 2,
and b+2,2 only.
And when the opponents
got upset and tried to hit back,
the player did Right Uppercut.
I was very amazed that
he could read the opponents mind.
For sure the opponents were very strong,
but the player was even more.
That is why, whenever I use Bob,
I try to mixup with small punches.
For sure I am not as good as the famous player.
3.Only two low attacks are enough
is very risky but I think they can”t crouch so often,
because Bob has good Mid attacks.
I sometimes do it twice in a row.
And for the last Low to finish,
or whenever you can”t take the risk,
Liaison Spike(d/b+3) is useful.
I don”t personally use Huile Slip(d/b+3+4,4),
because it is risky but little damage.
But I know
some Bob players use it
It is a matter of taste.
Bob is a well balanced character.
Maybe it is easy to use him as a sub.
Why don’t you start Bob?
