    Raiden's Super Moves

    • Energy Teleport -- down, left, attack 3 (no damage) -- a very fast teleport attack that puts Raiden behind his opponent, a good one to save to finish them with, if they haven't seen it before, they won't even expect it.

    • Lightning Blast -- down, left, attack 1 -- maximum damage 11% -- another chargeable projectile attack, like Vicinity Blast that's good for teaching your opponent not to jump in.

    • Lightning Shock -- right, right, attack 2 -- maximum damage 13% and knockdown -- nice grab and shock attack that teaches people not to mess with a god.

    • The Superman -- right, right, attack 4 -- maximum damage 10% and knockdown -- works good against jumping attacks.

    • Projectile Cancel -- down, right -- no damage -- good to fool opponents and then changing your attack.

    Raiden's Pro Moves

    • Cleansing Light -- down, left, attack 3, down, left, attack 3 -- this attack is the cornerstone of Raiden's ability to mix it up; you can change the direction of Raiden's attacks multiple times and keep your opponent wondering what's next.

    • Blinding -- right, right, attack 2, down, left, attack 3 -- This attack teleports Raiden out of Lightning Shock and setting your opponent up for additional combos. Make sure you input the Energy Teleport input as soon as Raiden connects with the punch.
