Introduction[edit]

Yuka Takeuchi (武内 優香 Takeuchi Yuka) is a practitioner of karate who resides in Tokyo. After her parents died when she was young, her grandfather took her in and trained her in the martial arts, including Karate and the manipulation of ki energy. She enters the VG tournaments simply for the purpose of furthering her training and testing herself against strong opponents. Her virtuous, outgoing personality wins her many friends among the other fighters, among whom are Chiho Masuda, Jun Kubota, and Satomi Yajima, the latter of whom she has been best friends with for years.

Gameplay[edit]

Yuka is Super V.G's Shoto-clone character, so she's easy to pick up and abuse out the box. Where she shines is her pressure which rivals that of Kaori and Reimi. Yuka is focused around getting in the opponent's face and forcing them to find a way to counter. She possesses the fastest projectile in the game on execution at 11F. Idaten Soku (basically her Tatsu) is her main rushing attack that also doubles as a good anti-air; it also has nigh-instant recovery and gives her advantage on guard. This is what Yuka will typically abuse during her offensive drives, and her best combo ender. Once Yuka is in range she can be difficult to deal with.

Pros:

  • Overall strong and easy move-set.
  • Very good pressure. Solid normals and specials keep her on the offensive.
  • Invincible uppercut.
  • Strongest Super Art in the game.

Cons:

  • One of the weakest throws.
  • Sōryū Geki not reliable versus grounded opponents; its odd hitbox can leave Yuka open.

Full-screen fireball.

Advancing multi-hit rush with roundhouse kick ender.

  • + Startup frames note: Has a 2F startup when Yuka is at point-close range; anything outside of her Standing LP.png range will cause it to have an 8F startup instead. All the other properties remain the same.

Rising uppercut.

  • + Frames 1–20 invincible (the entire startup and active).
  • The hitbox of the second hit is strangely awkward, and will not hit most grounded opponents. This ends up being a problem since the second hit is the one that causes the knockdown. If it misses, Yuka's left at a significant disadvantage. Below is the list of characters who will suffer both hits of the LP.png version either out in the open, or in the corner (when Yuka is at point-blank range against a grounded opponent):

- OPEN: n/a
- CORNER: Reimi

  • No one gets hit by both hits of the LP.png in the open, and only Reimi suffers both hits in the corner (possibly due to a slightly larger hurtbox). With that being said LP.png is still Yuka's best anti-air, but may not cause knockdown unless you catch the opponent high; the opponent just air recovers.

Rising uppercut (ascends higher than LP.png).

  • + Frames 1–28 invincible (the entire startup and active).
  • The hitbox of the HP.png's second hit is slightly better than its LP.png counterpart, but only against certain characters. There is an increased chance to score a knockdown. Yuka ascension is practically 90º so there is still a high chance of it missing and Yuka left open. Below is the list of characters who will suffer both hits of the HP.png version either out in the open, or in the corner (when Yuka is at point-blank range against a grounded opponent):

- OPEN: Ayako, Eleanor, Kaori, Reimi, Satomi
- CORNER: Ayako, Chiho (varies), Eleanor, Jun (varies), Kaori, Reimi, Satomi

  • Both Chiho and Jun have odd hurtboxes when it comes to being hit with the HP.png version. They can only be hit by both hits when they are in the corner, but even that seems random. Chiho has an average of being hit with both hits about 30% of the time, regardless of corner. Jun gets hit about 40% when she's in the 1P corner; yet it's about 80% in the 2P corner.

All special attacks combined into one combo: Ki Kō Dan, followed by Idaten Soku, followed by Sōryū Geki.

  • 1 durability point (the Ki Kō Dan part).
  • + Frames 72–94 invincible (the Sōryū Geki part).
  • + Active frames note: Like how the Idaten Soku behaves normally, Yuka will begin that portion of the Super faster if she's at very close range to the opponent; beginning on 13F rather than 24F. However, the attack does an additional +40 damage if Yuka is a character's distance away as the Idaten Soku hits an additional time.
  • The Sōryū Geki is somewhat identical to her DP.pngHP.png, but with slightly better hitboxes. Below is the list of characters who will suffer both hits of the Sōryū Geki-ender either out in the open, or in the corner:

- OPEN: Ayako, Eleanor, Kaori, Reimi, Satomi
- CORNER: Everyone

  • + The good news is that everyone takes the entire Super if they're in the corner. Chiho, Jun, Manami, and Yuki (the same four who don't get hit by both hits of the DP.pngHP.png) are all who avoid getting hit with the second hit of the Sōryū Geki-ender, leaving Yuka at disadvantage.
  • + The most damaging Super Art in the game at 820 damage! Even if the last hit misses it's still the highest. (If the Idaten Soku only hits 5x, then total damage is 780.)
