The next section displays the variations of Astaroth's frame data with particular moves when they are normal hits, counter hits, crouched hits, grounded hits or blocked or blocked while rising:

Block/Hit Data
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
H = regular hit
C = counter hit
D = crouched hit
G = grounded hit
B = blocked
R = blocked while rising

Frame advantage is a fluctuating number. The amount varies with the moment of impact. Your recovery time starts as soon as you've input a move. Your opponents hit / block stun starts from the impact frame. Therefore, the later you hit your opponent during the animation of a move, the more advantage / less disadvantage you end up with. Try to touch your opponent with the tip of the axe / foot for maximal advantage / minimal disadvantage.

Example:
A
H +9~10
B -3~-2
---
close range / early impact:
H +9
B -3
far range / late impact:
H +10
B -2

It's also important to know that moves with a block recovery of B -11 or worse may give your opponent free attacks.

Example:
4A+B
H x
B -18
---
Guard possible from frame 18+ after opponent's recovery
= Astaroth cannot block attacks of speed i17 or faster.
Attack possible 18 frames after opponent's recovery
= all attacks add +18 to their base speed, i15 K will trade hits with opp's attack of speed i33 etc.
Note that blocking low or crouching take an additional frame of recovery. In the same example, Astaroth cannot crouch or block low any attacks of speed i18 or faster. Moreover, it is impossible to suffer a crouched hit by medium hitting attacks of speed i18.

There are exceptions, where you'll be able to attack earlier than being able to block and vice versa.

I also decided to list which moves force your opponent into crouch. This can be important since many characters don't have access to their fastest moves, making it harder to interrupt your mix-up or more importantly, impossible to punish certain moves on block. This is indicated by the abbrevation OC, which stands for opponent crouched. This can be extended to further describe under which conditions crouch results. OCB = opponent crouched on block. OCD = opponent remains crouched when hit already ducking. In the case of low hitting moves, this mainly happens when counterhitting a TC move.

Regular Moves

[A]
H +16

AT prevents opponent from buffering. Must know exact recovery for earliest retaliation. Untimely input or mashing completely prevents attacking for a number of frames = adv. up to a +19
4B guaranteed when in range (close to RO). 66B guaranteed with perfect timing. Distance to opponent is character individual - 66B is slower at max. range - guaranteed impact not possible against some characters.
