Street Fighter 6: Kimberly Move List & Guide

Street Fighter 6 is coming out on 2nd June, which is just less than a month away. As such, the game’s roster for its launch is set with 18 characters, each with their various playstyles.

In this entry, we’ll be focusing on Kimberly, the successor to the Bushinryu ninjutsu style of fighting whether SF/Final Fight’s Guy wants this or not.

Note: This guide is still in development.
All inputs are in numpad notations. For example, Hadouken from player 1’s starting side is 236P.
Attack buttons are as follows: LP, MP, HP are light punch, medium punch, and heavy punch respectively. LK, MK, and HK are light kick, medium kick, and heavy kick respectively. None of this Fierce or Roundhouse bulls*** in Asia.

Street Fighter 6 Kimberly Overview

So, there’s this total fangirl named Kimberly who is totally obsessed with Guy from the Final Fight series. But here’s the twist: she’s not just content with admiring him from afar. Nope, she goes all out and decides to adopt the Bushinryu style of fighting, putting her own unique spin on it.

Picture this: Kimberly struts into battle with her trusty walkman, and guess what? It’s not just for listening to tunes. She actually uses it to time her attack rhythm. How cool is that? And that’s not all. She’s got another trick up her sleeve—spray paint cans that double as smoke bombs. Talk about resourceful!

But let me tell you, Kimberly is not one to play it safe. She’s a force to be reckoned with, a true rushdown monster. She won’t give you a moment to breathe as she gets right up in your face, forcing you to make split-second decisions. Oh, and she’s got this sneaky move where she sets a trap in the corner, leading to an epic air Izuna Drop. You won’t know what hit you!

Kimberly’s got an arsenal of moves that’ll make your head spin. She’s got a bunch of attacks that let her advance relentlessly, tricking her opponents with clever feints. And when she takes to the air, she’s got some killer kicks that’ll knock you off your feet. But wait, there’s more! She’s got this Level 3 super move that’s so epic, it even changes the music playing on the stage. Now, that’s what I call style!

All in all, Kimberly is a force to be reckoned with. She’s got this incredible gameplan that just overwhelms her opponents. So, if you ever find yourself facing off against her, be prepared for a non-stop onslaught of attacks. She’s gonna style on you like nobody’s business!

Play If: You love rushdown characters with crazy mixups, super-fast characters, you like to go all-out on the offense.

Avoid If: You prefer defensive characters, you like more methodical characters, you want characters with high health/stamina.
