Wavu Wiki Back turned

Back turned

From Wavu Wiki, the 🌊 wavy Tekken wiki

Back turned (BT) is a generic stance entered when your back is towards the opponent. During BT it isn't possible to guard or do any normal moves. Sidestepping is less evasive and turns around. Jumping has normal behavior but it isn't possible to hop.

Crouch

You can crouch during BT by holding D to crush highs. However, doing so will never enter any crouching stances, so the moves you can do are the same regardless of how long you've been crouching for.

Generic BT moves

  • BT.1_2_1+2 - 8f high, -8 / +3 / +3 15dmg
  • BT.3_4 - 10f high, -8 / KND W! / KND W! 18dmg
  • BT.d+1_2 - 10f special mid -2 / +9 / +9 10dmg
  • BT.d+3_4 - 10f low, -11 / +3 / +3 12dmg
  • BT.uf+3 - 17f mid, -12 / KND / KND 25dmg
  • BT.uf+4 - 17f mid, -12 / Launch / Launch 18dmg

Turning around

  • All attacks and throws turn around immediately. Throws are safer since they aren't likely to eat a counter hit.
  • 6[1] frames to turn and block by holding forward - this lasts for 18[untested] frames until you have to again hold back to continue blocking.
  • 7 frames to turn and block with holding back
  • 9[untested] frames to turn and block with db,B - this enters crouch state on frame 1 and thus high crushes.
  1. It takes 7 frames to turn and block if the animation of the attack leaves the 3D model in a neutral back turned state (e.g. Yoshimitsu's f,f+1+2). If the animation favors a specific side (e.g. Yoshimitsu's ws2), turning from that side reduces the time to 6 frames.

BT Table

This table highlights characters that lack certain generic BT moves, regardless of the input. All generic BT moves are accessible to the rest of the cast.

Every character has access to generic BT throws (BT.1+3 and BT.2+4), therefore they're not listed in this table.
