The hardest robot to learn, the Flail is the most original fighting character I have ever seen. Flail actually has decent combos, but they're very hard to pull off. Flail's main weakness is, of course, the air. He is basically helpless against a Gargoyle, since neither his jumpkick nor the crouching short (both excellent defense moves) will protect him from a Diving Claw. Flail has an excellent crouching fierce, crouching short, and standing fierce, complementing its two staple moves (the Chains and Charging Punch), both of which serve as good counter moves as well as attacks. Flail is a great defensive bot because of his priority and range, but overusing any of his moves will get you nailed. Just keep them on the ground, chipping away at their life with the Chains, and eventually they'll make a mistake. Also, he can duck Blade Pit spikes.
