General Information

Gameplay Information
Gameplay Summary
Rocket Raccoon is a very small and nimble trap and keepaway based character with a variety of special moves and mobility options to trick and frustrate his opponents. The range on his normals is incredibly short and rather limited, but he makes up for that with his amazing mobility using his float, Rocket Skates and Tunnel Rat special moves to move around the screen quickly.

Rocky's defensive tools in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 range from a variety of proximity mine based traps including his Claymore, Angel Gift and Grab Bag special moves, his Mad Hopper hyper combo and projectile based attacks like Spitfire and Pendulum. These in combination with his Oil Bomb (ignited by using his standing :h: or Spitfire) and assists, he is able to control a considerable amount of space at any given time he is on screen.

That isn't to say that Rocket can't excel near the opponent, however, as his quick maneuverability can make him hard to block and a real nuisance up close with the aid of assists and Tunnel Rat. The flame carpet created by a detonated Oil Bomb can lock down the opponent for a while, leaving you time to mix up with Tunnel Rat, Rocket Skates and instant overheads using his float abilities.

Rocket's health tied with Akuma and Strider Hiryu as one of the lowest in the game at 750,000 HP. While his variety of weapons to control space and small hitbox make him difficult to hit, if he does he'll likely be finished off in a single combo. His damage output isn't terribly high and his combo potential is limited due to the awkwardness of his normals, so up close he'll have to rely on mixing up his opponent several times into order to kill.

Using Rocket effectively will involve using all of his traps and projectiles appropriately on the defensive and capitalizing on chances to open up the opponent when the chance arises to go on the offensive.

Rocket can set up to three Mad Hoppers out at a time. :l:+:m: bounces left, :m:+:h: bounces right, :l:+:h: bounces straight up.
Rocky Raccoon :dp::atk:+:atk: - Rocket's level 3 Hyper Combo. Has OTG properties. Rocky buries the opponent underground and calls in an air strike as he jumps onto a helicopter to safety. Mashable for more damage. With meter, it can be followed up by Rock 'n' Roll.

    I was thinking star fox too, he's so small and he's pretty fast. I want to know what's up with some of his moves. Does he have like a crapload of traps, and does he have some kind of cancelling technique (I saw something in one of his vids with the boulder trap).

    I wasn't sure if I was going to like RR, but after seeing the video I am at least going to give him a shot.

    Hoping for a decent assist from him! He looks super troll worthy!

    Air dash/Command dash ala Zero.

    Can self OTG to continue combos.

    Burrow underground to avoid damage

    Dante-esque super, follow-up doesn't track as slow as I though it would.

    No Groot makes me sad. I was hoping for an Antman kinda deal. Still looks very interesting. Wonder how a mobile zoner will work out. Catching him looks annoying!

    Need to see assists. Need to see assists. Need to see assists. Now.

    I'm guessing his normal angled laser, his blast thing, and one of the traps (Probably shrapnel) will be his assists.

    Rocket Raccoon looks boss. Can't wait to get some time in with him. I don't think they could have made Mega Man anywhere near as fun as RR looks.

    One shows up in Frank West's walk through. It's the gun fireball thing. Shoots 2 or 3 times. Really low, not sure if it hits low.

    I like the layout but this thread's name is terrible compared to the others.

    Is there anything this character doesn't have? A reversal maybe? Damn... I am so scared of this rodent... but I will definitely try to play him.
