That's why she's considered like best striker in this game.


When she's playable, she's Mid-tier

Qualities :

  • various counter moves
  • Pretty good mixup
  • Her qcf.a (gets an air to built meter)
  • Her counter dm do a lot of damages
  • Her Chou Hasane Ate Super covers the entire screen (can surprise when opponent's jumping)


Faults :

  • Hard to play cause you must mind opponent well to use her counter moves
  • Her Chou Hasane Ate Super just gets same damage than j.cd thus not powerful (however powerful in sdm)
  • No safe normal attacks and bad reach
