Tager can magnetize opponents for a small duration by landing these attacks on hit or block. If the opponent is already magnetized and gets hit by a magnetism attack, the duration stacks (max 1000F). The magnetism duration normally reduces at a rate of 1 point per frame, but if Tager's opponent is in hitstun, the rate halves to 1 point per 2 frames (when they perform a tech, the rate goes back to normal). Magnetism duration does not decrease during superflash or hitstop.
When the opponent is magnetized, certain attacks will pull in the opponent (Moves that attract aren't always moves that inflict magnetism and vice versa). Each move attracts differently, for different durations and may pull in airborne and grounded opponents differently (For example, Atomic Collider will strongly attract airborne opponents, but won't affect standing or crouching opponents at all). The forces are noted in the frame data. Typically attractive moves start their attraction early on during startup and end during the active frames. Being pulled by magnetism doesn't directly affect that player's ability to perform moves since it doesn't directly cause any kind of hitstun, however it can mess up spacing and force players to land earlier or later than normal, causing some unpredictable and sometimes amusing effects.
In all cases, players performing distortion drives and executing throws that have successfully connected are completely unaffected by magnetism.
Tager's magnetism cannot force enemies into an airborne state if they're currently grounded, enemies doing any kind of ground tech also cannot be pulled vertically, even though emergency techs are considered airborne and can be pulled sideways surprisingly fast
In addition to magnetism, Tager has an extra gauge: the Electricity Meter. This gauge fills up at 1 point per frame (freezes during hitstop and superflash) and has a maximum of 1000 points. When the gauge is full, Tager can use the Spark Bolt attack.
Unlike most other overdrives, Tager's focuses more on taking advantage during neutral, with much stronger methods of applying and keeping magnetism. This isn't to say that it doesn't boost his combo damage, but this is limited to just what the overdrive cancel allows and greatly enhanced distortion drives, rather than boosted normals.
- Magnetized opponents are constantly pulled towards Tager,
- All normal drive moves all gain projectile guardpoints (As well as attribute specific guardpoints depending on the move)
- Spark Bolt Gauge fills up four times as fast
- All moves that apply magnetism apply the maximum amount on hit or block
- Genesic Emerald Tager Buster increases damage and adds 1000F of magnetism on hit
- Magna Tech wheel does a third spin before doing the final punch
- Terra Break deals more damage, wallbounces fully and knocks down hard.
