Necalli Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition moves


Stamina: 1,025Stun: 1,050 Tier Ranking: 18th
Popularity: 14th SF5 Tiers

Necalli was released on February 16, 2016 as part of the launch roster for Street Fighter 5. He is one of the game's initial 16 playable fighters available with the base version of the game.

The ancient evil being is a brand new contender to the world of Street Fighter making his debut in Street Fighter 5. He is an Aztec warrior who roams the earth in search of powerful fighters to devour their souls.

This savage combatant wears a white kilt with brown open-toed boots and visible red scars that can be seen on his shirtless torso and arms. He has very long red and black hair that is tied into dreadlocks, and when his V-Trigger is activated the hair explodes out of its ties and fully glows a bright red.

Necalli is a more simplistic character with only a handful of moves at his disposal. Despite this, his attacks vary in utility and can be effective for different situations.

The name of the game for Necalli is being up close and personal to his foes. He wants to be right in their face, heavily pressuring them, and mixing them up with blockstrings, overheads, and his devastating command throw that grants a follow up combo when the EX version lands.

When he's across the screen and too far away, Necalli has special moves such as The Disc's Guidance that see him perform a swift horizontal-moving slash attack that can plow through a single-hit projectile, as well as his V-Skill 1 ground pound that can hit three different areas on screen. He also has a great Dragon Punch-like uppercut that can be used for anti-airs and as an wake up EX reversal to keep opponents on their toes.

Like some of the other launch characters, Necalli saw great success just after the game's release before declining over time and floating around mid tier. After the Definitive Update, some pros feel Necalli's ranking on the tier list is more around the lower end of high tier or the high end of mid tier, which is quite good.

Necalli, the Savage Rastafarian Warrior!


If you’re looking for a Rush-down character in Street Fighter V well Necalli is definitely one of those characters that might interest you. So just what’s unique about Necalli game out the other rush down characters? Well he’s the only rush down character with a command grab. And yeah some players might say it’s not the best but, the idea of a rush down character with a command grab is still terrifying.

Furthermore, Necalli damage output is monstrous. Especially when he’s in Super Saiyan mode (V-Trigger). He has every kind of attacks; long-distance, anti-airs, cross-ups, and overheads. Overall he’s a savage beast.

+ Pros:

Necalli has a V-skill ground pound/projectile allowing him to be a threat from outside of close range

V-Trigger mode is a permanent transformation; enhances all of his attacks, increase walk speed, increase forward dash, and his Super Art changes; dealing way more damage.

All of his Raging Light are completely invincible, deals great damage, and possible knock down reward

Close-range game is diverse, having a command grab and an overhead attack to open up his foes

Thanks to his special Disc Guidance, he has no problems dealing with predictable projectile pattern

He has one of the most Crush Counter normal properties out of the cast

Cons –

Although he has a command grab, the startup is 8 frames; it can easily whiff.

Anti-airs are great but, it has limited areas in front of Necalli; does not have a great way to deal with jumping cross-ups attacks directly above his head.

Limited crouching attacks/combos; some of his low hit combos work only on certain characters.

Hope this helps and take care!

Raging Light is no longer a charge move, but Disc's Guidance is. As of the latest build.

Found an EZPZ hit confirm into Necalli's V-Trigger

Does 320 damage (not as much as St.HK > VTrigger > Cr.HP xx MK Stomp > Cr. MP xx MP Disc, but only 12 less and you can hit-confirm so as to not waste a v-trigger on a blockstring).

Unfortunately it MUST be at point-blanc range or it whifs.n

Cr.HP xx MK Stomp > Cr. MP xx V-Trigger > St.HP xx HP Disc

The last part is achievable because v-trigger allows you to instantly disc in a combo without charging.

For Necalli, A Major Flaw and I hope Capcom really fixes, is his Cross Over Medium Kick. It's almost as bad as Cammy's Non Existent Cross Up. I hope they fix the Hit Box on it for real. And Disc Guidance needs to be a Command Motion. That will help Necalli's rush down and help him not turtle and jump all day. He's a New character that should play with "The Greatest of Ease!!!". Not the other way around Lol.

If you want a good setup, after doing Ex. Command Grab in the corner, do st.HP into one of his Valiant Rebellions. If you do HK stomp, it will catch the opponent in what they're doing and allow you to get a Shoryuken. If they block it, you can do st.MK to catch any pokes they throw out (but be careful because if they do nothing they can grab the st.MK.)If you think they are going to stand there and keep blocking the HK stomp, you can do the LK or MK version. This will whiff and allow you to do whatever, including command throw again. The difference between using LK and MK stomp is that LK give you greater recovery while MK looks more convincing.

Necalli becomes a different character when V-Trigger is activated, with links that do not work in his normal state and his V-Trigger last until someone is KO for the round.
IMO, standing HK is his best counter tool, it has good range and can be v-cancelled for a follow up.
Lastly his ground pound is a bad zoning tool, it might catch your opponent off guard every now and then but it is best used at the end of his target combo

I noticed the V-trigger effects aren't in here. The v-trigger of Necalli never ends. It also makes Necalli's dash much quicker and a larger distance. He also gets a significant damage boost while his v-trigger is activated. But he cannot do a v-reversal while once you activate it.

Heres an easy combo that takes no meter.

304Damage with V-Trigger

Crouching Fierce Punch_____Cancel_____ Medium Valiant Rebellion xxxxLinkxxxx Crouching Medium Punch _____Cancel____ Light Disc Guidance.

Whats up wit dat frame data doe?

Bayfighter posted February 7, 2016

I wish v-reversal was three kicks instead of punches since EX disc's guidance might come out accidentally.

mediamatix posted September 21, 2015

Two special attacks were changed to CHARGE moves in the latest build:

Raging Light (down, up + punch)

The Disc's Guidance (back, forward + punch)

Why does Necalli have 2 super combos with the same input?

Tip: frame data for punishes against all characters.
