Tekken 7 is the latest installment of the globally popular Tekken series. Its games have been around for almost thirty years, and for the majority of its lifespan, it set the golden standard for 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.

Lidia’s Gameplan and Strengths

Lidia is a good rushdown character. She excels at pressuring her opponents, putting them in unfavorable situations, and making them guess with her stances and mixups that can lead to big damage. She can make people pay dearly for even minor mistakes with her whiff punishment game, carrying them to the wall and dishing out major damage. In addition to this, she has tons of counter-hit tools and perfect punishment for every frame.

Lidia’s Weaknesses

Lidia’s biggest problem is her linearity. She can also suffer from her inability to lock people down if you start autopiloting. The main requirement when playing is her is to always remember her options and not just throwing the same moves over and over again.

Lidia’s Guide Conclusion

Lidia has become one of the most popular pro-player picks thanks to her strong punishment game, and the ability to take over when the opponent succumbs to pressure. A strong all-around character, she has formidable attacking and defensive tools at her disposal. Playing as Lidia requires a bit of getting used to, as two of her stances do not overlap with the other two, and you need to always pay attention to what you are currently doing.
