Shogun is known for his very smart playstyle coupled with great match-up adaptation, as well as often going for mixups and flashy conversions.
In Ultimate, as Snake, he is a prominent user of B-reversing, Turnaround-B, wavebouncing and Z-Catching. His neutral mostly consist of setting up grenades to throw them at his opponent in order to wall them and put himself in an advantageous position where he can pressure his opponent's shield with down tilt, go for a grab, or follow up with neutral or down aerial for more damage. Shogun also tends to approach with either neutral aerial or dash attack. His ledgetrapping relies less on using up smash to cover multiple options like the other top level Snake players, and instead puts more emphasis on conditioning, using grenades and C4 to bait his opponent and often going for hard punishes. He can also play games without using grenades like he did against Maister at Kongo Saga.
