Learn those frickin parry option selects!

This is just a copypaste of what I wrote in the wiki. There are more OS's of course. Feel free to discuss more or talk about situations where they shine.

Low/Throw OS
Input 2 ~ 5LP+LK (down, return to neutral, delay throw)

This will beat lows, getting you a counterhit throw, or tech a throw attempt. Particularly strong because the nature of the inputs lets you exploit the 17 frame parry window


Left/Right OS
Input 6 (delay forward input, must be held).

This will parry same side mids/highs, and block against crossups. Notably effective against air mixups, since you don't need to worry about high/low. Solid option against characters like Beowulf, who rely on left/rights on incoming setups, and Double, who uses left/right mixups midscreen. Also useful against characters who like to cross-up with their jump-ins, such as Valentine and Annie.


Aerial Strike/Throw OS
Input 6 ~ 5LP+LK while in the air.

Similar to Low Throw OS, except you parry forwards. This beats strike (parry into counterhit throw) and techs throws. Useful against incoming setups, since players will often try to meaty throw Tympany Drive. Exploits 17 frame parry window like the Low Throw OS.
