TEKKEN 8- How to do ELECTRIC Wind God Fist (EWGF) / Wind Hook Fist (EWHF) on Keyboard, Mixbox, and Controller: Tekken is undoubtedly one of the toughest fighting games ever and their latest installment is surely the best the franchise has produced so far.
If you are new to Tekken and just picked up Jin Kazama or Kazuya Mishima because they are the main characters and they look cool, you would probably be struggling a lot with their moveset. Not like they have a lot of moves, but it is because the execution required for these characters is not for beginners. Especially when it comes to Kazuya.
One of the Mishima key attacks in Tekken is the Electric Wind God Fist or simply Electrics. It looks cool with the special effect that comes with it, however, it is more difficult to perform than you think.
TEKKEN 8- How to do ELECTRIC Wind God Fist (EWGF) Keyboard, Mixbox, and Controller
There are two versions of the Wind God Fist. The first one is the regular Wind God Fist, and the second one is the Electric Wind God Fist. The Electric one leaves you with an advantage on block (plus frames when enemy blocks) and that is why it is tough to do.
Both Wind God Fists are launchers, however, the Electric variant is faster on startup and does more damage as well. To do a regular Wind God Fist you need to:
Crouch Dash 2 (2 is Right Punch).
A Crouch Dash Input is Forward, Neutral (Neutral is a slight pause), Down Forward. So the entire input for the WGF is: FNDF 2
To do the Electric Version of the WGF (also called EWGF) you need to press Down Forward and 2 on the same frame.
So in other words DF and 2 should be pressed together simultaneously. The difficulty comes in when you talk about inputting two commands on the same frame. You may input both simultaneously but they might not be on the same frame. This is where years of practice come into play. Electrics are something you cannot master in a few days.
To get the timing correct you need to input 2 exactly when you are pressing Down.
So F, Neutral, DF2 Where D and 2 are pressed simultaneously followed by F. The entire input must sound like two button presses. It should be extremely fast.
Let’s compare the Commands of a Failed and a Succesful Electric.
You can see that the input for 2 was late by a frame in the picture where it failed. However, it was perfectly timed in the same frame as the DF in the picture where it succeeded.
The same concept applies to Jin’s Electric Thursting Uppercut. Just replace 2 with 1.
Secret Trick for Doing Consistent Electrics on Keyboard Only:
Tekken lets you use two keyboard layouts for playing locally with a friend. So even if you do not have another controller you would be able to play 1 v 1 on the same keyboard. What you can do is set the forward button on the second keyboard somewhere close to your 2 button on the first keyboard.
Now all you need to do is press F, N and then pres D, F (the button that you set near 2), 2 together. This makes it easier since you can press f and 2 with the same hand and that makes it easier to input both in the same frame.
In my case, I have 2 set to S on my keyboard. F and D on the respective arrow keys. I set another forward (from the second keyboard) on C. When I perform Electrics I press F, Neutral, D, C, S together.
I don’t think this is cheating because the game itself gives PC users access to two keyboards. So if you are having a Hard time doing Electrics this is an easy way to do it. However, you cannot do this on a Mixbox, Hitbox, or a Controller.
I would still recommend using the original method of doing the Electric Wind God Fists. That way you can learn the game.
