VesperArcade offers some resources to help players taking on the Man of Mystery.

The President of the World bursts into Street Fighter V with an unusual but effective moveset, making G a force to be reckoned with! VesperArcade has been exploring the capabilities of the most recent additions to the SFV roster, and there are multiple videos of interest to those that want to tap into the power of Gaia.

It’s vital to have a good handle on G’s Presidentiality system, and how to use G Charge to keep your Presidentiality level as high as needed:

Finally, here’s a closer look at what may well be one of the best command grabs in Street Fighter V: G Impact. Its range and follow-up options make this a throw to be feared, certainly. It can even be canceled into from blocked normals to punish V-Reversals or armored moves. But, it has a very slow startup compared to many other command grabs, and has very long recovery on whiff, making it a risky move if used recklessly! If you’re facing off against the World President, pay attention to the counter-strategies later in the video.
