Despair - qcf + P
  • Mature jumps into the air and slashes, knocking the opponent down
  • qcf + C goes further and higher than qcf + A
  • it is possible to crossup the opponent at some distances with this move
  • free cancellable into
  • overall, quite punishable on block and not particularly useful even for going over fireballs

Mature02 hcfK.png
Deicide - hcf + K
  • Mature swings her arm and creates a shadow which reaches about half screen length and grabs the opponent if it isn't blocked
  • very similar to Vice's hcf + K but Mature's cannot be comboed into normally since it comes out very slow. hcf + B comes out faster but doesn't reach as far as hcf + D
  • hard knockdown

Mature02 qcbP3.png
Death Row - qcb + P(up to 3 times)
  • Mature performs a 3 hit slash at close range. She can chain a series of 3 qcb + P's for a total of 9 hits which does good chip damage (assuming they have no stock to guard roll)
  • qcb + C goes slightly further than qcb + A, making it slightly easier to combo all the hits
  • free cancellable into
  • free cancellable out of on all hits

Mature02 qcbK.png
Metal Massacre - qcb + K
  • Mature dashes forward and performs a 3 hit slash attack that has very good recovery
  • qcb + B travels about 1/3 screen while qcb + D travels 2/3 screen length
  • qcb + D does a slight bit more damage than qcb + B and can combo at all the ranges that qcb + B comboes at. Since it also seems to have the same recovery time, there doesn't seem any reason to use qcb + B over qcb + D in combos
  • free cancellable into
  • free cancellable out of on all hits

Sacrilege - dp + P
  • Mature performs a rising uppercut attack that travels quite far horizontally doing many hits
  • for dp + A, the second hit (and onwards) lifts the opponent into the air while for dp + C, the third hit (and onwards) lifts them into air
  • dp + A free cancellable out of on the first two hits, dp + C free cancellable out of on the first three hits
  • comes out fast and useful in combos (dp + C does more hits and more damage than dp + A), but is not fast enough and not invincible to be used as a wakeup reversal

  • Mature performs a series of 4 slashes, the initial one coming out very fast. If the 4th one hits, she will perform a final hit that knocks the opponent back

Ecstasy 816 - f D C B f
  • Mature jumps forward similar to her qcf + P. If she connects, she will perform on them followed by an explosive kiss

Combos Notes

  • cl.B (2) / cr.C >
    • dp + C
    • qcb + C x 3

This is Mature's basic no-meter combo. If using cr.C, make sure it doesn't hit too far away of the qcb + C x 3 won't combo after. Using dp + C doesn't give you enough space between you and the opponent after the combo, to set up a fireball trap.

  • cl.B (2) > DM qcf qcf + P

This is a combo you'll be using a lot, especially after a j.B or empty jump. Decent damage from a one stock low combo that is also easy to hit confirm.

  • cr.B x 1-3, cr.A > DM qcf qcf + P

This is your dash in combo and depending on how close you are to the opponent, you will have forced to omit some crouch B's. Comboing the 4 weak attacks before the super is very hard even if you are pointblank in front of the opponent, so I wouldn't recommend trying it.

  • cr.C / cl.D (2) >
    • DM qcb hcf + K

Her most damaging one stock combo, use this off a hit confirm from a jump attack right before, or to punish moves with lots of recovery

  • cr.A x 2 > st.B (2) >> BC, hop B, cl.B (2) > SDM qcf qcf + AC

The Max Mode activation into hyper hop B makes this combo difficult to execute. It also best works against standing characters, or crouching characters that don't have low crouches (such as Athena's low crouch), otherwise the first hit of hop B won't connect and the combo will fail.

  • cr.A x 2, st.B (2) >> BC, DM qcb hcf + K

Buffer as: st.B (2) >> qcb hcf + BC

This is mainly a flashy combo and there isn't much reason to perform it. st.B stuns just like a strong attack, allowing you to combo the DM qcb hcf + K. Far B isn't cancellable so you have to use Max Mode bypass by executing the DM with BC. This takes two stocks and so isn't really worth it for the damage.

Note: Mature has more Max Mode combos that are for the most part, not that practical. This section will be updated later.



Mature isn't a particularly strong character, many tierlists placing her at lower-mid or mid at best. She suffers from a syndrome that is common with many characters in Kof2002 - she has too many moves that have no useful application outside of combos (or even in combos). The core of her game centers around a select few normals and special moves, those being her qcf hcb + P projectile, weak attack pokes, jump B and a few other ground/jumping normals to handle some specific situations.


  • strong zoning game
  • good high/low offensive game using hop B and close B/crouch B
  • decent damage one stock combos


  • no practical high damage combos
  • zero stock B&B combos do low damage
  • no fast reversal moves on wakeup so she is forced to either block or take risks with a slow but invincible super
  • no reliable crossups


Mature's zoning game is primarily based on the usage of her qcf hcb + A projectile. It's great mainly because it's slow, with a very tall vertical hitbox, making it difficult for many characters to jump over it. It also has good recovery time, making it safe at most distances from punishes. You can usually throw it out and be able to recover fast enough to anti-air jump attacks with crouch C, intercept jump attacks with superjump or vertical jump C, or run forward and punish rolls with crouch C.

After releasing the projectile, if they haven't made an action until you have recovered from throwing the projectile, then you can run after it. Depending on how far away the opponent was, you may be able to run after it such that you can go for a high/low mixup involving hop B and close B(with a possible empty jump) while they are blocking the projectile.

You can alternatively decide to position yourself to be able to punish any actions the opponent makes, and if they block the projectile, immediately release another one. There's a couple of things to consider here. Firstly, note that Mature cannot have two projectiles on screen at the same time, which is why you are waiting for the first one to get blocked. If you try to throw out a second one while the first is on screen, you will get qcb + P coming out instead, which is a very bad move to whiff. Secondly if the opponent has meter, they can guard roll the first projectile and punish the second one.
