Overview[edit]

The true form of Tsubaki Yayoi after the full release of the Sealed Weapon Izayoi's powers.

Drive: Scarlet Justice
Izayoi's Drive allows her to enter an alternate mode called Gain Art, giving her new ground dashes, C normals, special moves, and extensions. When in Gain Art, Izayoi gains tremendous mix-up and pressure potential, contrasting the defensive style of her normal mode. While Izayoi can transfer between the two modes freely, usage of the special moves available in Gain Art require stocks of the Zero Weave gauge, which are generated by using special moves during normal mode. These stocks are generated regardless of hit (2 stock gain) or block (1 stock gain) and are the foundation behind Gain Art pressure and combos. Effective usage of normal mode to generate stocks and Gain Art to pressure is the key to victory.


Overdrive: Freedom Justice
Izayoi's Overdrive allows her to constantly generate stocks without using special moves in normal mode. The number of stocks generated depends on overdrive duration, as they are generated at a rate of about 45f per stock. And like other characters, her Distortion Drives become stronger during Overdrive as well. Justice Phorizer increases in range and damage while gaining a wall-stick property, while Slaver Trans-am lasts approximately twice as long. Overdrive also strengthens her existing Gain Art specials, opening up new combos and pressure.


Pros/Strengths:

  • Incredible pressure and mix-up in Gain Art
  • Hover Dash creates unique mix-ups and options
  • Great range and anti air capabilities
  • Whiff cancel capability
  • Good projectile and mid-range game in Normal Mode


Cons/Weaknesses:

  • Very reliant upon stocks
  • Difficult movement in Gain Art
  • Slightly awkward normals
  • No easy answers to pressure without meter and stocks
  • Weak mix-up in normal mode without meter

Move List[edit]

Normal Moves[edit]

5A[edit]
5A

High, quick hilt jab.
Damage Cancel Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv Attribute Invul Hitbox
300 CSOJR All 6 3 9 ±0 B - -
  • Fast, high poke that gives Izayoi access to all of her cancels.
  • Commonly used to link after Strike Fall or jC.
  • Whiffs at close range on some crouching hitboxes.


While it has a very high hitbox, the range isn't as long as some other 5A's, limiting its anti-jump/anti-air usage. Spacing is very important!

5B[edit]

Long-reaching poke.

  • Very long reach for its speed.
  • Vital footsies tool in conjunction with Sonic Sabre.
  • Great for stopping jump out attempts and backdashes during blockstrings.


While 5B is a bit on the slow side, it makes up for it in range. This move is capable of tagging most characters from round starting positions. Generally used in conjunction with 6C and Sonic Sabre for mid/long-range pressure, at max range it is only confirmable into Crusade Seraphim β. In normal mode, Izayoi can't get anything more, but in Gain Art even a max range 5B can be converted into a full combo!

5C[edit]

Short-range, reclining slash.

710 SO(J)R HL 12 6 20 -9 B - -
  • Jump cancelable only on hit.
  • Mostly used for jump loop and air combos.


5C has relatively short range, especially when compared to 5B. Oftentimes, A normals are canceled into C normals immediately to remedy the issue where any additional gatlings would push the opponent out of range. Confirming into C normals on grounded opponents allows combos into Crusade Seraphim γ, greatly increasing combo ability.

5C (GA)[edit]

Unlike 5B, 2B can cancel into other B normals (being 5B and 6B). Has a bit more range than 2A, and at max range confirms into 5B. Also used to OTG after Crusade Seraphim γ in Normal Mode.

Similar to 5C, with slightly longer range. Has a higher base damage, but lacks jump cancelability making it better suited for confirms on grounded opponents. Go-to punish when 6C isn't possible.

710*2 SO(J)R HL 18 3(6)3 11 +5 F - -
  • Jump cancelable on hit
  • Vaccums
  • Huge frame advantage


This move is a vital part of Izayoi's more damaging combos. It prorates extremely well (once for two hits!) and has an incredibly high base damage. Mid combo, inflicts a huge amount of hitstun and untechable allowing combos into things with long startup, such as D sonic saber. In blockstrings, it vaccums the opponent towards Izayoi and leaves her at significant frame advantage. Has relatively short range, however.

6A[edit]

620 R HL 12 3 26 -12 B 6-11GP -
  • 6-11F Guard point.
  • Uncancelable except for RC.


A guard point move that guards up to (but not including) the first active frame. As such, it is possible to trade with this move. On hit, the opponent gets launched in a very horizontal arc, severely limiting combo options on counterhit. Easily punishable on block. Guards against everything except for lows, throws, and unblockable attacks.

Izayoi's only standing overhead, comboable with an RC, Trans-Am follow up attack, or on counterhit. When feinted, 6B becomes foot attribute invincible for slightly longer. Total duration of feint is 35 frames. Used at the end of gain art combos that don't use Zero Weave stocks on Strike Fall. Sends opponent downwards on hit, causing emergency tech.

6C[edit]

  • Frame advantage on block with stance cancel.


Izayoi's go to punish for easily punishable/whiffed moves. Having both fatal counter potential and great proration values, this move as a starter almost always leads into big damage. In blockstrings, 6C results in frame advantage(+1) with Crusade Seraphim ß Stance Cancel. Also catches jump attempts during blockstrings, making it an effective way of moving closer during pressure.

6C (GA)[edit]

  • Uncancelable except for RC.


Mid blockstring, the step portion covers a lot of space making it useful for keeping pressure at midrange. The kick has a very vertical hitbox, allowing it to stop jump out attempts and put Izayoi in an advantageous position. Commonly used at the end of combos due to its high amount of untechable time.

A solid punishing tool, covering a lot of space. Fatal counters, and has one of the better proration values of Izayoi's Gain Art moves. Netting a counterhit allows a followup into 2C (GA). On block, it is -10 at point blank, but at max range, it's -5. Knocks opponent downwards on hit, often setting up oki.

Izayoi's grab. Wallbounces, being comboable even midscreen. Normally special cancelable on the third hit, but interestingly enough the second hit can be rapid canceled to provide a much better starter rating and proration. Because the basic followup includes a teleport (which moves forward a preset distance), comboing into and at the corner requires adjustments. Likewise, a forward throw from the corner (with Izayoi facing away from it) requires adjustments as well.

  • Frame Advantage calculated from point blank range
  • Cancelable into D Mirage Thruster on hit, block, or whiff


Izayoi's signature projectile. A small, fast moving shot that flies straight ahead. Plays a huge role in her neutral game. Like the rest of her specials in normal mode, Sonic Sabre generates one Zero Weave stock on block and two on hit. Neutral on block at point blank, making it a decent pressure reset, but its startup can get stuffed by fast normals on IB.

  • Frame Advantage calculated from point blank range


Izayoi shoots a powered up version of Sonic Sabre. On contact, 4 more projectiles spawn around the opponent locking them down. Available only in Gain Art, and as such requires two Zero Weave stock. With heavy frame advantage on block and a low hitbox to catch rolls, this move provides a strong means of getting in for pressure. In Overdrive, D Sonic Sabre creates 8 projectiles on block instead of 4, opening up even more frame advantage and combo potential.

  • Cancelable into Mirage Thruster(D) on hit, block, or whiff


A great anti-air move with very fast startup and head attribute invincibility. Crusade Seraphim Alpha has huge range, and can be confirmed on counterhit, so its very useful for building Zero Weave stocks (in both neutral and combos). "Unsafe" on block, but teleport capability makes punishing extremely difficult. In Gain Art, CS Alpha gets a better starter rating and lower SMP. Uniquely among Izayoi's specials, this move has a different SMP penalty during Gain Art (with the normal mode penalty being harsher). Additionally, pressing D on hit will perform Strike Fall at the cost of a Zero Weave stock.

Crusade Seraphim Beta is your staple far range combo ender. It doesn't knockdown, but it combos off of max range 5B while generating Zero Weave stocks. Also works well as a midrange frame trap/pressure tool. In Gain Art, all confirms into CS Beta can turn into full combos thanks to Valkyrie Astraea, which is done by pressing 6D during CS Beta (even during startup!) at the cost of a Zero Weave stock. Beta is "punishable" on block, but can cancel into teleports.

  • Cancelable into Mirage Thruster(D) on hit, block, or whiff


Crusade Seraphim Gamma has similar use to Beta. Mostly restricted to blockstrings and combos, it plays an important part in both. In normal mode, it paves the way for 6 to 8 stock generating combos, while in Gain Art it serves as a combo extension. On counterhit, it pops the opponent up and leaves them in a comboable knockdown. The issue with comboing into CS Gamma is that it only connects after C normals, which essentially means only close confirms can go into Gamma. Like the others in its family, it is unsafe on block but has teleport cancel options. Also, much like Beta, Gamma can be canceled into Valkyrie Astraea the same ways while in Gain Art.

Usable only in Gain Art, Valkyrie Astraea is a kind of "extension" to Crusade Seraphim Beta and Gamma. Unlike a normal "extension", it's actually possible to do Astraea before either attack connects. Naturally, this also means that you can cancel into Valkyrie Astraea on whiff. On block or hit, it can be canceled into teleports not unlike the Crusade Seraphim series. Astraea's usage is usually limited to combos, due to the stock cost and frame disadvantage, but when used properly, it can turn any far range confirm into a full combo and is the centerpiece of a majority of Gain Art routes. In Overdrive, the knockback (on hit) is greatly reduced to allow combos that would normally only be possible in the corner to work anywhere.

  • Cancel windows: a: 6F~, ß: 7F~, y: 10F~


Stance Cancel (Crusade Seraphim) ends up with different total durations based on the move you use, due to the varying cancel windows and total duration of cancel. Fastest possible Beta cancel is the shortest at 17f, followed by Alpha cancel which is 18f and then Gamma cancel which is 22f. Due to being the result of a special cancel, you can calculate the static difference of a normal into stance cancel by ignoring the additional active frames and replacing the recovery with the total duration of the cancel. The following list shows all normals that benefit from the fastest possible Beta cancel and the resulting frame (dis)advantage:

  • +1 : 6C

Aegis Blade covers a large vertical area, and has very fast head attribute invincibility, making it an effective anti air. On counterhit, opponents are launched straight up and cannot tech until they hit the ground, allowing for easy 8 stock combos anywhere! The hitbox for this move extends very close to the ground, so it can be used to OTG and catch rolls. However, much like the Crusade Seraphim moves it is unsafe on block, but can cancel into teleports. Also carries a large amount of untechable time, being useful in both Normal mode and Gain Art combos. In Gain Art, pressing D during Aegis Blade will perform Strike Fall.

This move primarily serves as an important combo part for Gain Art. Noir Edge is Izayoi's primary air combo ender knocking the opponent far ahead. In Gain Art, links into Strike Fall at the cost of one Zero Weave stock. Combos with repeated Noir Edges are also used to regulate the opponents height and set up extensions after Strike Fall. It also finds usage in mixups, serving as an instant overhead in both Normal and Gain Art mode. When performing the move, Izayoi stops in place, making it work as an overhead while both rising and falling. However, it is unsafe on block in either case.

Izayoi's staple combo ender. Doable only in Gain Art, Strike Fall serves as a follow up to Crusade Seraphim Alpha, Aegis Blade, and Noir Edge. It is only possible to do Strike Fall on hit, so you can option select your confirms into Strike Fall and commit to another cancel option on block or whiff. On hit, has an enormous amount of untechable time, usually leading into some kind of workable knockdown. For high hitting Strike Falls, Izayoi can link into 5A, 5C, or Justice Phorizer for a combo extension.

Izayoi teleports a preset distance to a location based on whichever button you use to activate the move. A teleports in place, B teleports backwards and C teleports forwards. The A, B, and C teleports are doable in both Normal mode and Gain Art. The D version of the teleport is doable only in Gain Art and requires 2 Zero Weave stocks. However, it makes up for it by tracking opponents (you end up right behind them, regardless of where they are, even in the corner!) while being able to whiff cancel special moves (even Justice Phorizer!). On hit or block, D teleport only requires one Zero Weave stock. However, certain moves require two stocks regardless of if they connect or not (All variants of Sonic Sabre and Justice Phorizer).

Izayoi's only real reversal, but an amazing one as far as reversal supers go. Extremely fast startup, great active window and a ton of invincibility. On block, pushes back extremely far making it very, very difficult to punish. During Gain Art, can be canceled into D Mirage Thruster on hit, block, or whiff (making it even more difficult to punish!). On hit, leads into a full combo with teleport. During Overdrive, Justice Phorizer gains range, damage, and untechable time along with a wallsplat property. Minimum damage is 660 (900 during Overdrive).

  • Startup differs based on attack used


Trans-Am summons two bits to hover around Izayoi for a certain amount of frames. When using an attack during Trans-Am, after a certain amount of frames, the bits will attack. This can allow certain combos that normally would not work, and combo routes off of moves that are normally uncomboable (6B comes to mind). During Overdrive, the duration of Trans-Am is doubled. With constant attacking, you can get a max of 4 attacks out of the bits before they disappear (8 in Overdrive).

Izayoi's Astral. She first charges towards the opponent, and upon successfully connecting proceeds to throw a lance in a very Super-Robot-Wars-Esque cutscene. Extremely comboable, working off of C normals, grabs, airgrabs...the list goes on. With such quick startup, it is arguably one of the better and more practical Astral finishes in the game.

Add more asterisks to further indent your text as necessary.

The categories are split into Offense, Defense, and Neutral, but you can change these categories as you see fit for your character.


Defense[edit]


Neutral[edit]

Combos[edit]

Note: This section is under construction!! Please check back soon!

Combo Notation Guide:
jc = jump cancel
move(w) = whiff the preceding move (for example, if 236C(w)~6D is written, you would go straight into 6D)
move(N) = only use the Nth attack of the move (for example, if 2C(1) is written, you only use the first hit of 2C)
(move) = whatever's listed in the parentheses is optional
j.BAC = Izayoi's normal mode jump series that leads into a relaunch. It is written this way because of its character-specific variations. Listed damage may vary.
