Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl/Helga Pataki

From SuperCombo Wiki

Story

Move it football head!

With her great academics and being a rough and cynical young girl, Helga is the local bully of Arnold and friends around Hillwood. Despite this she secretly harbors a crush on Arnold to an obsessive point. You bet she can bully the competition in the brawl!


Gameplay

Helga is a glass-cannon who can hit hard, but at the cost of attack speed. Like any bully hounding you for your lunch money, Helga thrives on getting her opponent right where she wants them for a beatdown. This is accomplished by her Neutral Special Golden Magic Slingshot, which has the unique property of pulling a foe towards her if the projectile hits. She also possess a counter in Homerun that will readily punish anyone who tries to overextend, and a recovery that can potentially allow her to come back from extraordinarily low angles.

If you're a straight up scrapper who doesn't mind the tradeoff of speed for power, Helga's perfect for busting some heads!

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Where do you think YOU'RE going??: As mentioned above, Helga's Golden Magic Slingshot will send an opponent flying towards you should the projectile connect making it extremely potent as a move, this will allow you to connect some of her slower Strong Attacks or use it to combo. This allows you to threaten the opponent without having to rely on approaching with her sluggish movement. Any opponent trying to keep out of range of your damaging attacks will have to be on their toes.
  • Recovery Mix-ups: Helga's Approaching Uppercut will halt her momentum in the air to ascend straight up, moreso if it's charged. This can be used to throw an opponent off who is trying to block your return to stage by suddenly changing direction.
  • Counter: Homerun is a counter that acts as a unique defensive option to counteract Helga’s vulnerability and punishing mistakes. This also acts as an extremely rare midair defense option, allowing her to deal with people attempting to exploit her vulnerable recovery.
  • Linear Recovery: Despite her recovery having good mix-up potential, it has practically zero horizontal reach and only travels upwards. More often than not, you'll find yourself recovering low to take advantage of it, which an opponent will be quick to catch on to.
  • Low survivability: With her (assumed) lightweight status and relatively vulnerable recovery, Helga’s survivability is poor compared to the rest of the cast
