Strategy[edit]

Parker is all about control. He can control the pace of the match with his orbs, his variety of plus on block moves allow him to be in control on offense, and his powerful but specific defensive options allows him to even maintain some control when the opponent is on offense.

Parker's normals are very good, his 2B is fast to come out and recovery,and very plus on block. His 5B is slower, but is much longer ranged and better for neutral.

Anti-Airs:

Parker's normals and specials are very bad for anti-airing, as most of them don't hit above him at all and the ones that do are slow and hard to use on reaction. They can work, but lose if the opponent uses a jump normal.

Parker's rolls are interesting anti-airs as they rely on the opponent having landing recovery Parker can take advantage of my causing them to whiff. Forward roll is better at this because the opponent might not expect to need to block the other way. They are tricky to time correctly however, especially on reaction.

Parry compliments is lack of good anti-airs by scaring the opponent from using jump normals out of fear of being parried.


Parker's Orbs are set up by his 1A and 1B. 1A sets one at ground level immediately, and 1B sets one up high very delayed. The safest way to get them up is at a distance and after a knockdown or heavy normal. A set orb cannot go off-screen, but a B orb starting up can be canceled as a fake-out. Parker's 3A and 3B interact with the A and B orbs respectively. They launch them about half screen.

Parker's 3A is a slow, but long ranged poke that is plus on block, chips and is external, meaning that it's hitbox cannot be hit. It is great for ending block-strings or combos on a crouching opponent.

3B is an overhead with a duck-able first hit. It has some surprise factor in neutral, but is mostly used to end combos and chip opponents for a KO. It is very unsafe, but when spaced some characters can't punish very well.

In neutral, Parker's main goal is to get n orb behind the opponent. This allows Parker to threaten a reaction 1A and very strong combos from even full-screen away, allowing him to make his opponents too afraid to take action.

On offense Parker uses his 2B, 2A, 5A, 3A and 1A to get plus frames to continue pressure or go for a throw. If Parker has a B orb starting up, he can go for a jump normal instantly off the ground that will combo into the Orb hit allowing for combos off an unreactable overhead,although a knockdown is needed to set this up. Parker's 2B is amazing to use when an opponent is getting up, as it is +6 on block and has long range.

On defense Parker doesn't have 1 tool for the job like most characters, but multiple specialized tools. Parry is a very strong option against opponents who want to attack Parker a lot. Be aware that it is very punishable, and Parker only has 3 times to miss. Forward roll doesn't have invulnerability frame 1, but beats throws and can cross-up the opponent, allowing him to get out of the corner. Parker's back roll is invulnerable frame 1 but has him retreating, so it keeps him on the defensive. Keep in mind that all of these options can be baited and punished by the opponents, but the threat of 1 can allow another to slip through, or even an unconventional option that the opponent didn't consider.
