Kai’s R1 is strong, unblockable, damages/lifts/picks enemies off the floor, wide coverage and very good at generating combos all in one. Overall, she is simple and very effective to play as. She is very good at crowd clearing/control and officer clearing/control, allowing her to use self-Stamina very well.
Unless enemies are non-flinchable, her R1 causes a faint effect on enemies, making it impossible for enemies to retaliate/counter her with any attacks, like Musou.
During Kai’s R1, refrain from aerial thrusting (double jump) too early or tilting her away from enemies too quickly. Aerial thrusting too early will cancel her R1 damage (but not the animation) and tilting her away will cause R1 to miss a couple of hit counts.
Her R1 has a sweet spot for full damage for clean OHKOs against generics without Typhoon and just one Efficacy/ Vigor partner setup, but can be difficult to grasp. Typhoon is completely optional for easier OHKO on generics because Free Mode gameplay is a breeze for her. If damage isn’t too important, she can replace Typhoon with Bastion to stomach hits better. She is already very safe to begin with, but Bastion is never bad to have on a weapon. In Gauntlet Mode, Bastion would definitely be the superior choice over Typhoon.
Her S1 execution is incredibly fast, this can be used to maintain combo from crowd to crowd if she has Typhoon, but not necessary for her to combo generate effectively.
No audio because this was recorded through the features in PS4.
