Utilizing Cape Parry

Unholy Veil

Spawn’s Unholy Veil (BackForward2) is a parry attack that allows Spawn to counter enemy projectiles. After successfully parrying a projectile, it will trigger a Krushing Blow. This allows Spawn to interrupt specific projectiles that have a large enough gap to parry in between. Unholy Veil can also be delayed by holding 2 and cancelled by inputting Down. After cancelling, Spawn can then punish with 1,1HoldBack+2KB or Back+1,2. While this does cost meter, it can be useful when the Unholy Veil Krushing Blow has already been used and you need an alternate method of punishing.

Characters that can be punished with Unholy Veil:

Geras – Forward+2,2
Shang Tsung – DownBack1 (Ground Eruption)
Sonya – BackForward1AMP (Energy Rings)

Blaze of Glory

With the Blaze of Glory (DownBack1) ability equipped, Spawn can fire low shots at the opponent while being able to parry low attacks. After successfully parrying a low attack, it will trigger a Krushing Blow. Similar to Unholy Veil, this allows Spawn to interrupt specific strings that involve low attacks and have large enough gaps to parry in between. Blaze of Glory can also be delayed by holding 1 and cancelled out of by inputting Down. Spawn can then punish the opponent for even greater damage.

Characters that can be punished with Blaze of Glory:

D’Vorah – Back+3,4
Geras – 2,4
Liu Kang – DownDown13 (Shaolin Stance Sneaky Monk)
Kung Lao – Back+3,2,1
Kollector – 4,4,3
Skarlet – Forward+2,1 / Forward+4,3
Shao Kahn – Forward+3,4
