A standard feature of Tager's mixup, 5B and 2B both serve as a useful low poke that can go into reasonable damage. While 2B boasts a much quicker recovery, reduced hurtbox and slightly more damage, 5B has a much wider selection of cancel options and a generally better hitbox, making it generally more useful if you know you're going for blockstrings or are just performing a combo.

Like a worse 5A without the jump cancel but a lower profile, 2A sees some use as a ghetto anti air and a mashable button, since it can self cancel up to three times but 5A cannot self cancel at all.

Like a worse 5A with fewer cancel options a lower profile, 2A sees some use as a ghetto anti air and a mashable button, since it can self cancel up to three times but 5A cannot self cancel at all. As an anti-air it's a bit weak since it requires a rather fast reaction to jump cancel into the followup combo, but it's still useful for disrupting your opponent's pressure nonetheless.

In previous iterations, 5B and 2B were pretty interchangable, however 2B's use has now moved from being a combo tool to being a very safe low poke when up close. It has a very nice frame advantage making it ideal for setting up Wedge catapault attempts, deliberate whiffs on techs and other shenanigans. 2B's relatively short range limits its use to just an oki tool in many cases since it's not easy or practical for Tager to close in unimpeded most of the time.

Often used in combos after 6C to bring the opponent back down to earth. Ensure you hit them as with Tager as low as you can to give yourself time to recover and use 5B. In neutral it functions as a punish if you find yourself airborne. Otherwise it's a very risky air-to-ground move, since it's very punishable itself on block.

The quick start up version seems to be a bug that was deliberately left in the game where the game cancels much of the startup into the landing animation (which has some active frames). This quick version is useful for getting surprise fatal counters on jump ins, and is also quite safe. However its use is very limited due to the rather precise height you need to be to activate it.

Compared to previous versions of Tager, the Gigantic Tager Driver has been streamlined from two versions into just one. Consequently, this variation is about as fast as his old B version Driver with holding extending his active time, but does the same damage as his classic A Driver. The 6 frame startup and short invulnerability means it can be used as a weak reversal, especially after tech rolling past the opponent, but this is risky and you can get easily blown up if the opponent goes airborne or tries for a meaty and catches you before the invulnerability window. As with all of Tager's meterless grabs, you'll want to follow this up with Gadget Finger.

While it might seem, as a Grappler, that your gameplan should revolve around landing this move, it actually only leads to weak damage compared to Tager's other options. Typically you'll need to use this move to keep your opponent from doing bad blockstrings on the ground and also to win out point-blank jab contests when at near-neutral frame advantage, forcing your opponent to play less aggressively.

Wedge Catapult is Tager's new command throw in CF, replacing the B version Tager Driver and leading to better overall damage with the appropriate combo. It sees most usage as a tool for calling out moves and even an anti-jump in due to the generous invulnerability window between frames 6-30. However it has a slow, 30 frame startup, and 30 frames of recovery, meaning that abusing it or whiffing it will lead to eating a painful punish.

Atomic collider is a move that will add good damage to any combo, however it is often not possible to follow up with anything other than Gadget Finger, meaning you'll generally want to add this in at the end of your combos. Very early on you can use 5A > jA > jB > jC > Crimson Punish, with an RC you can use 6C and on fatal counter 5A > 5C > 5D will work early in the combo.

Similarly, if you find your own back is against the wall, getting any combo to lead into atomic collider will turn the tables on them!

Overview

Iron Tager is a Sector Seven professor who has been mechanically enhanced to perform field-work. Originally the leader of a Sector Seven assault team sent to retrive Nirvana in the 4th Hierarchical City of Naobi, Tager suffered a mortal wound during the mission, and due to being the only survivor, was forced to withdraw. He was revived as an enormous cyborg by Kokonoe, whom he pledged loyalty to afterward. After his revival, he bears a similar resemblance to a demon, which resulted in him dubbed as the "Red Devil of Sector Seven". He is feared by many, but in truth he is very calm and calculated, only engaging in violence when necessary.

In terms of gameplay, Tager is an archetypal Grappler who uses powerful unblockable grab moves and guard point moves to deal high damage combos. While lacking strong mobility to close in on his opponents, Tager has the ability to magnetise his opponents in order to pull them towards him instead, as well as opening up various combo options which lead to better damage.

Drive: Voltic Battler

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 increases (max 1000F). When the opponent is magnetized, certain attacks will pull in the opponent (Mores that attract aren't always moves that inflict magnetism and vice versa). 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.

In addition to magnetism, Tager has an extra gauge: the Spark Bolt Gauge. 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.

While grounded, the pull effect is fairly controllable and normally has a fairly low maximum speed it can pull in at (About walking pace) and the effect ends very shortly after the move pulling your opponent stops doing so. 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. However in the air the velocity added can stack up to a very high value and in any direction, only resetting once they touch the ground. This can lead to some strange results, such as opponents being flung, airdashing to cancel their momentum slightly and then going back to their fling velocity once the airdash ends. It can also mess up air moves and spacing.

In all cases, players performing distortion drives are completely unaffected by magnetism.

Overdrive: Voltic Field

  • 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.

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.

Strengths/Weaknesses

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Highest health total in the game.
  • Really good close range game
  • Huge comeback potential
  • High meter gain on magnetized opponents
  • High level pokes for easy confirms
  • Fairly large hitbox moves
  • Backdash has many invincible frames, useful for getting out of nasty situations
  • Very effective at punishes
  • Possesses the fastest projectile in the game
  • Big hurtbox, allowing for easy fuzzy/unblockable setups
  • Lack of mobility
  • Has trouble against zoners
  • Spark Bolt not always accessible
  • Gameplay revolves around corner and magnetized opponents
  • Requires knowledge and a lot of patience to win at high levels
  • Magnetized foes can sometimes work against you, pulling foes in to confirm an attack they might have whiffed otherwise
