List of Perfect Block Moves & Advantages

Recommended Posts

Hey.

 

Perfect Blocking is a mechanic that makes many safe moves on block, unsafe and punishable.

 

By doing an immediate Homing Attack Cancel into block, the blockstun you receive is greatly decreased.

 

There are a couple rules when it comes to Perfect Blocking:

 

-Since this mechanic is tied to Homing Attack, it can only be done in Field Phase.

-The time window to perform a Perfect Block is small. Doing a Homing Attack Cancel into block too early or committing to Homing Attack for too long will result in regular blockstun.

-You can only Perfect Block moves that have a single hit (some multihit moves can be Perfect Blocked if there's a big enough gap between the hits).

 

Grab is the go-to action when it comes to Perfect Block, as It's most character's fastest option in Field.

 

Each move however has a different frame advantage, making certain Perfect Blocks more rewarding.

 

Below is a list of each character's Field Phase moves that can be Perfect Blocked, and a comparison of their normal "On Block" data to their "Perfect Block" data.

 

(Note: For instances such as "X > XX Homing Attack -26", this shows the frame window to punish before Homing Attack 2 hits.)

I am confused by the annotation is it:

 

before perfect blocking/ after perfect blocking

how negative the character is after doing this move before perfect block/ after

 

?

"This move's on block data normally / This move's on block data after being perfect blocked"

 

Example: Lucario's Bone Rush: Downward Swing is 0 on block. But if it gets Perfect Blocked, the move is now -22.

 

0 / -22
