Soulcalibur VI/Xianghua

From SuperCombo Wiki

Introduction

Xianghua's playful fighting style focuses on feints, giving credence to her catchphrase "Just kidding!". While she lacks in damage, she has the tools to worm her way into an enemy's mind, conditioning them to expect one option while hitting them with another, then feinting that option into yet another option - constantly twisting the opponent's expectations and putting their reactions to the test.

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Just kidding!
  • Crybaby
  • i12 super
  • Does no damage

Xianghua would not recognize her own father if he were to pass her in the street, because her mother had never really spoken of him. Xianghua's mother was from the prestigious Chai family in Beijing, and taught Xianghua swordsmanship from a young age, treating her with a firm but loving hand. Xianghua sensed these moments held some deeper significance than her mother was letting on... Perhaps it had something to do with her father, she surmised. Two years after her mother's death, she decided to focus on the way of the sword. With every passing day, her passion burned ever more strongly.
