Really, really good idea for a thread.

Question on multiple hitting moves can you block the first part and then confirm the parry?

So in theory if you find a move with a big enough gap its possible. There's probably a few out there but for the most part since ex parry doesn't have armor its not likely to be practical in real matches unless its an extremely big gap.

She can parry regular and ex punchwalk from Goro.

She can't parry command grab or telestomp for universal moves.

She can parry chest lunge from Kuatan warrior. Can't parry quake.

Sonya can parry fang spin in his Dragon fangs variation.

She cannot parry any Tigrar Fury specific specials however.

I actually don't own goro so if someone could test his special moves that would be awesome :D

I like how she can parry both Raiden's superman and airborne superman but she can't parry Liu Kang's dragon kick >____>

Not with her regular Parries, she can parry lows only with her Xray.

Her regular and ex Parries are high risk and unless you've mastered the timing with every character should be used seldomly.

So basically we can look at the subzero unbreakable parry list and see which strings have gaps in them to do these on block.

Really useful list, thanks a lot man. Will save me from randomly pulling the parry out of my ass praying it'll work.

For GM sub-zero I'm going to experiment. Staying the hell away from him and build up my meter from a distance by psychotic breakdancing Parries in a corner.

I think it's important to know that Parries build meter, I wasn't aware of that till recently.

Lol I thought everyone knew. Hence, why we(Sonya community) called Sonya the new batgirl from injustice.

But anyways, you're pretty safe throwing out parries full screen unless sub does a meter burn ICE. So keep that in mind.

I'm sure it's in here already, but Thundergod Raiden. You can parry all hits of F12B2. From far range you can even parry the lightning.

Noticed a lot of these moves EX version can be parried too. It'd be nice if it were listed right next to the specials. Also, maybe put the characters names in alphabetical order? Just giving some suggestions to keep this post more organized & well put together.
