Tekken 7 is the latest game in the globally popular Tekken series. Its titles have been around for almost thirty years, and for the majority of its lifespan, it was an example of what 3D fightings should be. Nowadays, it’s one of the most regarded titles worldwide and is respected by the fans of even the most traditional 2D games.
One of the reasons for such success is the gameplay of Tekken and how many different styles it’s able to incorporate. The characters have become iconic at this point, and every new addition tries to push the envelope even further.
Julia Chang is one of Tekken’s mainstays. She’s been popular ever since her Tekken 3 debut, and she even donned a different persona in the previous entry. In Tekken 7, Julia is back to her true self, that of a scholar, a staunch advocate for ecology, and a badass fighter. Currently, she’s considered to be one of the top-tier picks, and Fergus ”Fergus” McGee is here with us today to teach us how to play. You can view the full video right below and go over any of the individual sections right here in the text guide.

Julia’s Best Moves
The Best Buttons are simple inputs that in many ways form the identity of the character. They’re likely to be your best tools for getting a grasp of any particular fighter.
1 - a standard jab, +1 on block, +8 on hit. Can be followed up with 1, 1, you can also hit-confirm it as well.
1,2 - you can delay the 1, 1 follow-up, the third hit can be a natural counterhit if they press a button.
ff1 - Julia’s infamous elbow. A 12 frame move that can be delayed a bit to gain more tracking. Only -2 on block.
4 - Julia’s “magic 4.” Just like most typical “magic 4s,” it can be used to challenge the opponents or keep them from disrespecting you. Considering the strength of Julia’s combos, a counter-hit launcher like this is a major tool in her arsenal.
d,d/f1 - if you press 3 or 4 after the hit lands, Julia spins in the given direction. This provides a plethora of mixup options. Has a hit-confirmable follow-up on counter-hit.
d/f3 - a good 13-frame mid poke. A reliable move that doesn’t require much execution skills.
d3 - barely unsafe on block, but makes the opponent crouch on counter-hit.
f3~1 - a nice approach tool that’s plus on block from far away.
WR1 - +4 on block, a nice mixup tool, wallsplats near the wall.
b4 - a normal hit launcher, and only -2 on block. Spam this move.

Julia’s Strengths and Weaknesses
Julia is a top-tier character for a very good reason. She has a very suffocating neutral game that makes it hard for her opponents to execute their gameplan at all. On top of that, her mixup game is just as deadly. And as a cherry on top, her damage output is simply obscene. She hits like a truck after every launcher and has one of the best wall carries in the game.
In addition to this, she doesn’t suffer from any crippling weaknesses. The only notable thing is her comparatively lackluster WS punishments.
Julia’s Guide Conclusion
Sometimes you got to pick a character that gives you the best chances to win. Julia is a top-tier character that can do just that – maximize your chances to win. Her kit is relatively easy to get a hang of, and she simply has no real weaknesses that can be exploited. To put it in simple terms – abuse her power while you can!
