Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid Chun-Li guide – move list and strategies

Evildoers aren’t ready for Chun-Li’s kicks.

Chun-Li, also known as the “first lady of fighting games,” takes the identity of the Blue Phoenix Ranger in Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid. Known for her mighty kicks from the Street Fighter series, Chun-Li’s playstyle translates unusually into the Power Rangers fighter — while many Street Fighter and Marvel vs. Capcom veterans will be familiar with her control inputs, Battle for the Grid players will have to start practicing their quarter circles and Spinning Bird Kicks. Chun-Li is a speedy fighter, effective at both close combat with her signature kick attacks, and zoning with her Kikoken fireball.

Special

Kikoken

Hold Back, then Forward + Light/Medium/Heavy

Chun-Li’s one projectile move is a bit difficult to pull off; hold back for a couple of moments, but not for too long, then hit forward and an attack button to shoot a fireball. Using Light, Medium, or Heavy will determine the speed and the amount of damage the fireball gives.

During Kikoken, Heavy

Chun-Li’s follow-up might even be harder to input; after launching a Heavy Kikoken, spam the Heavy button and unleash a blue phoenix attack.
