Blanka Beginners Guide for Super Street Fighter Arcade Edition

beginers guide to blanka

Ahoi,

In Super Street Fighter Arcade Edition,  Blanka has a very good okizeme game(wake up), punishes grapplers with Blanka balls and is very tricky to play against.  I’m compiling all of the resources that I have learned how to use Blanka from as a way to help beginners quickly and effectively pick up Blanka.

For anybody just starting out with SSF4 ae, read this first.

A few words of wisdom:

  • Blanka has 950 stun meaning he gets stunned easier than most characters.

  • Blanka heavy balls don’t knock down unless in a combo

    Just saw some things I’d like to comment on…

    “Blanka has a very good okizeme game(wake up)”

    Eh, I wouldn’t say very good but better than average I suppose. It gets a less more effective when you fight more seasoned players because you can actually react to a lot Blanka’s mixups whereas you can’t react to Seth’s dps -> FADC, command grabs, or instant overheads for example. His frame traps don’t lead to very damaging combos either.

    “Blanka has 950 stamina meaning he gets stunned easier than most characters.”
    Blanka has 1000 stamina and 950 stun. “Stamina” in this game refers to health, so perhaps that should be reworded to avoid confusion.

    Lastly, fierce Blanka ball knocks down when it hits on the first few active frames, not necessarily if it’s in a combo. You combo into it at max distance and it won’t knockdown. Similarly you can use it at point blank not in a combo and it will knockdown.

    Good luck on your Blanka journey!
