Dhalsim moves and strategies: Marvel vs. Capcom 2

Character Overview

Known in some circles as Sentinel-lite. Dhalsim can play a comparable style to Sentinel, he's just not as effective.

Special Moves

Joystick Joystick Joystick Joystick Joystick (Can also be done in the air)
Yoga Fire
The button pressed determines the speed of the projectile, with Hard Punch being faster.

Yoga Flame
Dhalsim breathes a huge flame out of his mouth, this has pretty solid range but will not hit from full-screen's distance.

The Hard Punch version can juggle your opponent multiple times, and has the potential to do more damage, but if you're not close enough to juggle with it fully — you need to be around sweep distance — you're best off using the Light Punch version because that one hit will often outperform the Hard Yoga Flame from longer distances.

Yoga Blast
Basically the same thing as a Yoga Flame, except arced diagonally up-right to catch people who are jumping. The Hard Kick version also stays out for a lot longer than the Light Yoga Blast, which makes it very forgiving on the timing when you're trying to anti-air someone.

Air Drills
The Hard Punch Air Drill is Dhalsim's Yoga Mummy. He leads with his head and this can travel over some projectiles and attacks, plus it's pretty quick.

The Hard Kick Air Drill doesn't have much range, and travels almost straight down with a slight forward arc.

Yoga Noogie (Command Grab)
This motion overlaps with the Yoga Flame, but it's an unblockable command grab. You have to be pretty close to pull it off, or you'll just do a Yoga Flame instead. Still, pretty handy since it cannot be blocked.

Makes you fly around for a longish period of time. You can do any of your aerial moves while you're Flying, including your Air Drills.

Joystick plus any direction in the air
Air Dash
Simply hold in whichever direction you want to fly while jumping, then press the two punch buttons at the same time and you can Air Dash.

Hyper (Super) Moves

Yoga Inferno
Can be aimed up or down with the joystick, and if you land all of the hits it does good damage.

Yoga Strike
