Gill is so far the only character in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition without Crush Counters. In place of Crush Counters, Gill instead benefits from the ability to inflict a freezing or burning status effect on opponents with certain attacks. This is quite important for Gill's unique Retribution system.

While Gill might not be recognized as the best character in Street Fighter 5 at the moment, his combos are among the flashiest. Javits has recently posted yet another cool combo using Gill.

The sequence begins with Gill in the corner. After baiting out an EX Dragon Punch from Kage, Gill is provided an opportunity to switch sides with the opponent.

To do this, Javits moves Gill forward using his crouching medium punch. This has to be done between the first and second uppercuts of Kage's EX Dragon Punch.

From here, Gill using his V-Skill 1 to summon a frozen projectile from the air. With proper timing, Gill is able to connect a kick just before the meteor connects.

In total, Javits is able to dish out 642 damage against Kage for an incorrect EX reversal attempt.
