Zasalamel's self-taught style takes full advantage of the scythe's length in order to be deadly at any range. The key to victory for its practitioners call for a unique dependence on curses to draw their enemies in, as well as magic that can stop the flow of time.
Main gameplan restricts opponent movemnt and force opponent to play traffic light style at times to safely move and attack.
deceptive cooldown on certain key string due to holds and/or delays(66A, 6a, 3AB, A+B, K at range 0).
ring out game is regarded as one of if not the best in the game especially with curses
CE forces opponents to constantly second guess their offense and string use that has gaps as well as long range opponents zoning people out such as Ivy 66A due to pull in properties. CE with 3 curse is notably scary becoming a 90 damage RI move that drains roughly 10-12% meter on hit
Strings and setups require extensive lab work for counterplay and counter measures along with options with curses at stage positions such as the wall or ring edge.
Main key moves constantly pull the opponent to and from Zas for perfer ranges of step killers or guard crank tools.
Has a RE cancel with curses cause why not.
all RE buttons are plus on block.
Curses on the opponent with 2 or more create scary 50/50 and damage jumps up off the right starters.

In SC can gather curses in a fast rate with B+K,B which are close range tracking Special Mid fireballs that are plus on block, plus on hit hori low in SC 1AB, command grab 50/50 236A/214A
Some of Zasalamel's attacks inflict up to three purple curse orbs that orbit the opponent. He can cash in these curse orbs on certain attacks to stop time proportional to the amount of orbs expended - the more, the longer. This generally translates to making the move more advantageous on block, or keeping the opponent in hitstun longer to go for a different combo confirm on hit.
His Critical Edge also changes based on the amount of Curses applied to his opponent:
- 0 - GI vs. mids and lows
- 1 - GI vs highs, mids and lows
- 2 - GI vs highs, mids, and lows, restores guard stamina
- 3 - RI vs highs, mids, and lows, restores guard stamina
|Zasalamel was born into a clan called the Guardians of the Spirit Sword. Though an excellent warrior, he was arrogant, and broke his clan's rule never to use the sword after which they were named. As a consequence of his disobedience, both his arms were fractured, and he was cast out. Still he remained defiant, and began gathering knowledge of the ancient arts in the hope of discovering the secret of reincarnation. Over time, Zasalamel became the greatest wizard of his generation.|
