Jade is my favorite character in MKII (a faster version of Kitana.....I mean....come on!)  It is unfortunate that she is not playable however I have no problem settling with just fighting her.  The purpose of this guide is to explain how to fight her as well as a few stratagies for surviving the match.  

In arcade mode make your way to the final character before the Question mark.  During this match you want to win a round using only the LK button and not pushing block.  It can be either round 1,2,3 or 4 if there was a draw match.  

The jump back strategy will really work to your advantage in this situation.  (wait until you're opponent is at sweep distance and then jump back.  The AI will pause for a brief moment and then jump towards you)   From here you can either do a LK jump followed by a sweep or else wait until you're opponent is close in the air and do a LK so they fall back onto the ground.  (if you don't time it right they will react as if it is a ground LK and then counter right away).  

Once you have won the match you will be transported to Goro's lair to fight Jade!  

My favorite characters to fight against Jade are Scorpion, Jax & Baraka.  If you apply the same jump back stratagy to a Jade fight you can really make it a easy win with Jax and Scorpion.  Due to Jades increased speed she will always set herself up for Jax's back breaker and Scorpions air throw.  Just keep jumping around,  she will follow you.  Jax's jump kick/back breaker combo is a good one to use.

*note*  Projectiles will not work on Jade so don't even go there haha.

As for Baraka, his extra jump kick reach works well against jade.  She will try to HK you most of the time but you can bypass it with your jump kick.  *and follow with a sweep if you wish.....which is what I would do*  Also due to Jade's increased speed she sets herself up for the blades of fury move quite easily.  Just let her move towards you and when she is *really* close perform blades of fury and you got her.  You have to time this just right, if you are too quick she will block it and counter with a fan throw.  Practice makes perfect!  With this in mind......try a jump kick follwed by a sweep and then a close blades of fury or else start with blades of fury folowed by a jump kick and sweep.  The match is yours.  

Once again due to Jade's increased speed the gravity of her falls changes to a quicker land.  Keep this in mind when attempting to do combos with other characters. (for example Raiden's jump kick followed by torpedo will not hit unless you have it perfectly timed)
--------

Alright I hope this guide helps!  Please add to it if you have your own stratagies and/or know tricks with other characters.

Fair enough.  In my opinion she is the hardest character in the game to fight with Noob Saibot and Smoke being tied for second.  The main reason is Jade being invincible to projectiles which limits the moves you can do on her. 

After Scorpion, Jax & Baraka I would probably recommend Kung Lao.  His jump kick/diving kick combo works well on Jade as well as his whirlwind spin move when she is jumping towards you. (unfortunately you can't add the hat throw to make a combo...damn invincibility)

lol yeah I remember the first time I tried that.  I think I probably got one hit in during the match haha. 

Hey thanks I appreciate it.  If there is demand for it perhaps I will do a write up on fighting Noob Saibot and Smoke.  I just did one on Jade because she is my favorite character in the game.   Smiley
