Persona brings us another great King of Fighters XIII combo video today featuring Leona Heidern. Leona is a charge character, which means her combo options are somewhat limited. That being said, Persona feels that she has a lot of untapped potential that people haven’t discovered. Sure, the combos can be a bit finicky if you aren’t used to charge motions, but once you get one or two simple hand techniques down the doors open to a world of massive damage.

Notes and notations can be found below the video.

-COMMENTS-

After finishing the video, I’m surprised at how much untapped potential Leona still has. First of all, Leona combos can be really easy or really hard depending on how well you’re at buffering. You mainly just need to know how to TK supers and cancel her d~u P into b~f K. If you can do both of those with ease, you’ve already pretty much conquered most of her combos. Oh and she does a ton of damage since most of her attacks are single hits.

    That was actually one of the coolest ones you’ve done, Persona. Leona’s combos look pretty neat, even if the meat of them turns into repeated slashes. Comboing out of V-Slasher is just awesome to me.

      Thanks! <3

    While I do love me some charge characters and Leona is pretty damn awesome, I always felt her play style never quite fit in with KOF. Very fun to play though.

    • Ach Hans Zombies!

      Blasphemy! Leona stylin’ KOF since ’96. Riot Leona ’97 all the way!

    People who are lazy to learn the features and mechanics of the game sometimes end up saying dumb stuff like this, specially if the only fighting games they know come from Capcom…

      Oh…OK. You made the video, right? Just making sure you are not talking out of your ass.

        No, I did not make the video, but I happen to be a Leona player myself (since KOF ’96). She’s a high risk/high reward character and buffering and charge partitioning are a must to play her properly. Leona, as everyone in the KOF XIII cast, has the tools to get by and I insist that someone who says that her options are limited simply hasn’t taken the time to learn the character. But who am I kidding, this site is called Shoryuken after all. It’s great to see that Persona (and plenty other KOF players) keep pushing the boundaries of what can be done in KOF XIII, hats off to you Persona.

        • neroiscariot

          That’s cool. I guess my grumpy hat was on last night and props to you for sticking with a character for that long. I’ve been using Iori since 95 so, yeah, I get that.
