Critical Bursts

Critical Bursts are a new element introduced in Dead or Alive 5.

Overview Edit

When an opponent is affected by a Critical Burst, they will become momentarily stunned and completely helpless (unable to guard, move or hold), leaving them open for Power Blows, Power Launchers, or juggling moves.

Criteria Edit

In order for a Critical Burst to be properly performed, the user must have already engaged in a Critical Combo (any combination of strikes on an opponent undergoing Critical Stun from a Critical Hit). A visual cue is to observe the text reading "CRITICAL STUN" under the opponent's health bar. When it turns from white to red, that is the cue that shows that a Critical Burst can be performed.

Another cue is to observe the opponent's health bar: when an opponent enters Critical Stun, a portion of their health bar flashes white to indicate the amount of damage that can be done to them before the Critical Stun is broken (i.e. doing more damage will knock the opponent down). To take full advantage of Critical Stun, the Critical Burst should be used as late as possible, when the flashing white portion is no longer visible. This allows for the most damaging possible combos, although there is more of a risk that the opponent will hold before the Critical Burst is performed.

Trivia Edit

  • Tina is the only character with a Critical Burst that hits 3 times.
    • This also makes her the only character capable of performing a Critical Burst without first initiating a Critical Combo.
  • Helena and Alpha-152 both have the most Critical Bursts.
  • Ryu is the only character who can enter a Special Stance from his Critical Burst.
