A Great Video Guide to Playing Oni in AE2012
Like Akuma, Oni has low health but very big damage. You may have seen some videos of crazy Oni combos and you’ve wished you could bring your evil powers to that level. But you’ve got to start at the fundamentals. You’ve got to start with the basics.
A great guide–dubbed The Book of Oni–has been posted on YouTube that walks you through everything you need to know to get started with Oni. You get familiar with his normals, his main weaknesses (and what to do to overcome them), his anti-airs, his hit confirms and target combos, the “loop” combo, how to best use the air dashes, and how to capitalize with supers and ultras, including the mid-air Raging Demon. I’ve been toying around with Oni and, while I’m far from good, he’s a heck of a lot of fun.
Perhaps you’ll be able to kara Raging Demon for some added confusion in your game.
