There’s a certain set of unwritten rules about parries in Tekken 7. Typically, parries will lose to knees and elbows, most can be reversed, and some have such heavy recovery that whiffing one causes you to get launched for free. Most of this logic, however, goes right out the window once you start talking about Jin’s parry.

Jin’s parry recovers almost instantaneously, and works versus nearly every single attack in the game. This allows Jin to punish things virtually no other character has a true answer for, such as Hwoarang’s safe, mid Rage Art. It might sound like Jin’s parry is broken, but as neptunusequester‘s video details, there’s a little more going on then just being a normal parry on steroids. Check out the video above to see the strengths — and weaknesses — Jin’s parry possesses.
