Guide Batman Parry Guide

Being able to parry strings properly is going to be a huge part of Batman's metagame. zaf and myself went through with all the characters and made a list of the strings that are able to be parried for each character. Since there is no cancel advantage in the frame data, we were not able to find gaps by looking at the information so we set the CPU to reversal parry.

1- Light
2- Medium
3- Hard
F- Forward
D- Down
U- up
B- back

This one's for you
Nice stuff :) I think Harley's tantrum cartwheel can't be parried sometimes for some reason. Maybe it's just the timing of it.

You can parry Doomsday's 123 like this 12-3.
You are right we will add it.

Here is why we did not have it:

We have batman set to reversal on and to use cape parry.
We press 123 with Doomsday and there might be a gap in between 1-23.
However the cape still does not come out between the 1 and the 2.
So jer and i manually parried in between 12-3 and it does work.

This post is great, GJ Jer and Zaf.

Are you sure supermans 223 does not have a hole in it?

I was parring Supermans 223 between the 2 and the 3 very easily. Definitely a gap in there, this was in real matches vs Classy Sasquatch.

I'll test it again with Zaf.
You have to crouch block at least the 2nd hit in order to parry the 3rd of 223. Same goes for his 112. Just put the cpu on stance/duck/ reversal/cape parry and it will come out every time. I guess theres different hit stun characteristics depending on if you're in crouch or stand block.

Damn Green Lanterns B1-3? That's huge....
