I haven't really played any Vipers since Ultra dropped but she still terrifies me. Delayed wake up helps Gouken a little bit and changes the match from a 6.5 to a 6 or 5.5 in Viper's favor.

Though, a la delayed wake up, a knockdown from Viper is no longer a death sentence, she now has low forward combos and red focus crumbles that can lead to massive damage from footsies. Gouken must watch the sky as well as the ground in Ultra.

Gouken relies on his damage and stun output to put Viper down before she gains momentum. Neutral jump fierce punch will punish impatient attempts to get in with burn kicks and thunder knuckle pressure. Jump back fierce punch is also nice against burn kicks though be careful not to corner yourself.

Vipers seem to love to DP out of pressure so you have to be able to read those from Viper player to Viper player. (They're either going to do it a lot or ALL OF THE TIME.) There's no better feeling than blocking a Viper's guessy uppercut and then staring them in the face while you ultra them and tell them to go back to Marvel. I'm not bitter...

Maybe I've only fought scrubby Vipers but cl.hk seems to really, really frequently blow up burn kicks. They're probably all just doing the burn kick too late so I'm getting a tiny window to do it but idk exactly what the case is.
