I'm ready too... Downloading as we speak!

Whoever proceeds further with the work on this section, I'm letting you know right now that these command lists are inaccurate and correspond to the first version of Virtua Fighter 5. VF5: Final Showdown features retooled move arsenals for all of the characters, so I wanted to make sure that this is correct.

Catalyst said on June 6, 2012 at 10:43 p.m.


Yes, we're aware of that. The guides will be retooled as well, this is just a base to work off of.

I'm new to this franchise, and boy am I having a hard time with it! Learning all the mechanics is one thing, but those movelists are just massive. I sure can't wait for some beginner guides to show up.

Central Discussion guides are coming soon.

Feels a lot like DoA but more realistic and therefore less juggly. But all the characters are approachable, they feel very natural and is very easy to pick any of them up. Only tough things in this game IMO are countering, parries and offensive/defensive moves.

Missing some characters,like Jean.

List isn't updated and characters are missing... Why would anyone use this site for move reference, when there's a Command Training mode in the game, and all the frame data we need.

Someone's going to use eventhubs in the middle of an online match? I don't get it... It's odd.. The button at the top of the page says Virtua Fighter 5, the page has information about Virtua Fighter 5, but, we're all playing Final Showdown.

Hopefully this gets fixed up soon so that the guides and such can be updated.

There's way too many moves in these types of games for no reason.

Kenshiro said on June 26, 2012 at 10:01 a.m.

^ Perhaps it's too much for the average gamer.

And that's not to insult anyone in particular because only 30% of movelist is used at a clip/round. However Virtua Fighter has various throws from different more than enough of a reasons to give each of the cast a handful of moves and be done with it.

Never touched a VF since VF2.
Right now im loving this game!
Especially its Flawless online code!

I'm sorry but I don't really get the "18. Evasion - 2" part in Dojo mode. What should I do?

MadokaTheTechwiz said on July 7, 2012 at 7:11 a.m.

Akira is such a fun character to play!

Keetro said on July 17, 2012 at 8:39 p.m.

where is the new ppl

project_00_wolfen said on September 19, 2012 at 3:59 p.m.

Like Tekken, no one's going to use EVERY move. Just pick your favorites and start learning how to set up and mix up.

Kanjilearner3309 said on September 20, 2012 at 9:45 p.m.

Where are Taka-Arashi, Jean, and Dural?!

Where are Taka-Arashi, Jean, and Dural?!


Eye_of_Orochi said on March 6, 2013 at 11:21 p.m.

Really, still no T-Arashi? Oh well, in game we DO have movelists :)

Existent said on March 16, 2013 at 5:52 p.m.

That's sad that this isn't updated yet. VF needs love.

"Akira Yuki: For Better or Worse"

The future of Virtua Fighter!

just started playing this and going back to a simple 3 button layout is a stroke of genius that if anything makes this game more accessible.

Teinted_Gene said on August 4, 2014 at 7:56 a.m.

WOW... its been almost two years since me previous post and STILL no Taka or Jean?

SaitoKojimaU said on October 12, 2015 at 4:49 p.m.

You seriously expecting EventScrubs to give a damn about VF? XD

nightmaresteam said on December 27, 2015 at 6:50 p.m.

Guide is for Final Showdown, is missing Taka and Jean. Failfish
