List of gaps punishable by normals or parries

The gaps were taken from @Zoidberg747's thread where he listed all the string gaps for every character: https://testyourmight.com/threads/list-of-all-string-gaps-in-inj-2.63891/

I've listed each gap as a ~ symbol.

IMPORTANT INFO
There are 4 characters with parries in this game:
- Joker: DB2 (4 frames startup so 3 on reversal)
- Batman: DB3 (4 frames startup so 3 on reversal)
- Wonder Woman: DB1 (5 frames startup, 4 on reversal)
- Black Canary: DF1 (6-frame high parry, 5 on reversal) and DB1 (6-frame low parry, 5 on reversal)
- Brainiac: Some gear ability I haven't unlocked yet.
  • Testing was done using Joker who has a 6-frame D1, and an 8-frame S1.
  • Strings listed in yellow can be punished with only Batman's and Joker's parries.
  • Strings in green can be punished with either Batman's/Joker's parry or a fast normal (in Joker's case an 8-frame S1 or 6-frame D1).
  • Strings listed in red cannot be punished with a parry nor with a fast normal. You should backdash instead.
  • 'Hits low' means that parry doesn't work because Joker's and Batman's parries can't catch lows.
  • When I list 'xx' in a combo, it means I'm canceling a string into a special. If I ever don't list the xx (don't think I've ever done that here though), it means you should do the string, wait, then do the special.

Assume that most yellow and green strings can be parried with Wonder Woman's DB1 bracelets (as long as they don't hit low), but not all can be full combo punished.

Strings that Wonder Woman cannot full combo punish with S1 with DB1 bracelets

  • Black Adam, 2~2
  • Blue Beetle, 3~3
  • Brainiac, 1~2
  • Cheetah, 33~2
  • Deadshot, B1~2
  • Green Arrow, 11~3
  • Green Lantern, F2~D1
  • Hellboy: 1~1
  • Joker, 32~3 (final hit)
  • Poison Ivy, 21~3
  • Raiden: 11~3
  • Robin, 1~2 (but 12~3 can be punished with S1)
  • Scarecrow, 12~3
  • Swamp Thing, 11~3
Strings that WW has to punish with D1D2 (into BF2 MB)
  • Cyborg, 11~2 (parry connects, but you have to punish with D1D2xxBF2 MB, etc.)
  • Deadshot, 3~3
  • Supergirl, 21~2 (Supergirl can't connect 212121 on block so don't worry about the punish)
  • Bane, F2D3
Other noteworthy strings
Cheetah, 1~2:
  • If Cheetah does a naked 12, you can parry it and get a combo with S1.
  • If Cheetah does 121+3 (which she will), your only punish off of a 1~2 parry is neutral jump 3. This is also possible without a parry.
Cheetah, 2~2:
  • If Cheetah does a naked 22, you can parry it and get a combo with S1 (and even B1).
  • If Cheetah does 223, you can punish it with a S1, but Cheetah the 3 leaves Cheetah in the air. Your punish would have to be 11xxDB2 MB instead of 11xxBF2 MB.
Supergirl, F23~1
  • Punish with 11xxDB2 MB instead of 11xxBF2 MB.
Green Arrow, B2~3
  • B23 consists of two hits, so keep in mind that missing your punish gets you hit.
Dr. Fate, 11~3 (held)
  • Punish with D2xxDB2 MB or with a meterless D2 combo.
Robin, 2~1
  • Can be parried but you can't follow the parry up with anything.

Supergirl's B12~breath is punishable by a 6-frame D1 btw.

Also general update, changed the 7-frame S1 to 8 frames. This makes some of these full combo punishes viable for more characters!

Canary Cry Gapless Pressure
I know for a fact I've tested Black Canary Parrying Green Lanterns B13 / B12. For some odd reason, the AI set to reversal can parry B13 but when I try and do it manually i get counterbalance hit. I can parry B12 just fine though. Super weird ..

That does sound pretty strange.
