It's often said that damage is extremely high in the newly released Guilty Gear Strive. With the right set of circumstances, it's possible to deal up to 100% damage to a character's life bar.

A recent discovery from a top Guilty Gear Potemkin player, FAB, showcases how Potemkin can deal 100% damage to an opponent. What makes this sequence special isn't the damage, but rather how it can be achieved off a blocked hit.

Under normal circumstances, it isn't actually possible for Potemkin to pick up a combo after his guard crush. It's generally best to just think of this guard crush effect as being an aesthetic thing for Potemkin that depicts massive block stun rather than an actual tool.

However, by combining Potemkin's guard crush with a Roman Cancel, it's possible to slow the opponent's reaction down enough to use the guard crush as a way of opening up the opponent. Of course, this will spend 50% meter to perform the Roman Cancel.

By the of the sequence, Potemkin will transition into a super. This will spend what remains of Potemkin's meter. In other words, Potemkin will need to be willing to spend all his meter for this sequence to work.

Check out the newly discovered 100% combo that initiates from a guard crush below:
