Iron Tager


Overview[edit]



Health: 13,000
Guard Primers: 10
Play-style: Close range grappler
Movement Options: No double jump or air dash, backdash only

Drive: Magentism
Tager can magnetize opponents by making the opponent block (or get hit by specific attacks). When Tager magnetizes the opponent when already magnetized, the duration gets added on (max 960F). When the opponent is magnetized, certain attacks will pull in the opponent. After a period of time, the magnetism will disappear.
Normally, magnetism reduces at a rate of 1 point per frame, but while taking damage the rate changes to 1 point per 2 frames (when Tager gets up or techs, the rate goes back to normal). Magnetism does not decrease during superflash or hitstop.

In addition to Magnetism, Tager has an extra gauge: the Spark Bolt Gauge. This gauge fills up 1 point per frame (stops during hitstop and superflash) and is 1200 units big. When full, Tager can use the Spark Bolt attack.

Move List[edit]

Note for the Guard section in the tables:

  • H: can block while standing
  • L: can block while crouching
  • A: can block while in the air without using barrier
  • UNB: unblockable
  • All: can be blocked however
  • All attacks can be blocked with aerial barrier unless stated otherwise.


WARNING: all frame data is from CS2. Will be updated when Extend frame data is released.

A long ranged straight punch. Adds 6 seconds of magnetism. Wall bounces on CH, stuns on normal grounded hit and blows away and floor slides on air hit (They can tech before they hit the floor). Due to the reduced active time on the attraction, this isn't the massive attractor it once was. But at the same time, you'll find yourself less likely to pull someone in too close before it goes active and getting the move stuffed.

A sort of Rhino's charge which covers a lot of ground and has long active frames. Just like B sledgehammer, you'll get punished for using this as a command dash in neutral situations. So reserve it for pressure when you have frame advantage, or after Atomic Collider. Unless you catch a CH with this on its last active frames, you cannot follow it up without RC. However, its proration is very good and its initial damage is very high, so it's well worth using an RC in this way. Adds 6 seconds of magnetism

  • wall bounces on CH
  • 24F blockstun
  • smaller hitbox on last 2 active frames (17~18F)
  • adds 240F of magnetism
  • can pull in magnetized opponent 7F~

Surprisingly quick attack where Tager just seems to launch his arm backwards. Good active time, leads to wallbounce on CH (easier to combo from than 5D CH), tall hitbox and gives neutral advantage on block (Which is very good for Tager). Very bad if you whiff. Much stronger attraction than in CS1 but otherwise unchanged. Adds 4 seconds of magnetism

Slow but powerful horizontal poke with a big hitbox. Its attraction makes it a very useful air to air attack and leads to big damage if you can score a counterhit low enough to the ground to follow it up with AC. Adds 6 seconds of magnetism.

Command grabs that cannot be throw escaped under normal circumstances. 360A boasts invulnerability (frame 3-11, goes active on the 11th) making it a decent reversal in many situations but at the price of it being slower and less damaging. 360B on the hand comes out faster (6 frames) but does a whopping 3700 damage and it can be followed up with more stuff than A buster. In both cases you will attract magnetised opponents towards you and you can extend this attraction by holding down the button. 360A Can be extended significantly longer than 360B but 360A will only attempt to grab your opponent after you've let go of A whereas 360B will grab them whenever it can, even if you are still holding the button.

  • not affected by Tager's combo rate
  • 45% repeat proration

An unblockable Anti air grab which slams your opponent down to the floor on the other side of yo and is untechable for a long time (And thus can be followed up in various ways). Generally used more for the big damage it inflicts in combos rather than as an anti air (It ignores Tager's 40% combo rate and thus is always worth adding into your combos whenever you can). This move pulls in magnetized and airborne opponents, and quite strongly too. just like 360A you can hold the button down to lengthen the attractive time on the move, but also like 360A you must let go of the button to actually perform the grab. Note that while it has Head invulnerability, it starts late you so won't take advantage of it too often

  • can perform followup 22~31F

An advancing strike with an anti-projectile guard point until it enters recovery. The A version is quick but doesn't move very far, and often only sees use inside fatal combos and not much else. The B version has a long startup but covers a long horizontal distance and can easily be followed up on hit, often overused by scrubs as a command dash and frequently gets them punished for it. To reiterate: This move is not a command dash do not use it as such!

OTG Pick up that does 100 fixed damage, magnetises your opponent and drops them in front of you in a standing position. It leaves you at +3 frame advantage leaving your enemy in a rather unpleasant situation with no guaranteed escape from what you might do. Since you are at +3 you can actually poke without worry of being out poked or stuff a jump out. It can be rapid cancelled allowing for additional mix up. (See the more detailed analysis below). Note that as well as picking up downed opponents, it can also be used to pick up opponents that are just about to hit the ground as well. This move attracts downed opponents during its active frames and can be held to extend these frames.

  • can end from 24F~
  • can cancel into 720C 1~11F
  • adds 4 units to magnetism gauge for every frame that button is held down (max 360)
  • adds to Spark Bolt gauge 7F after button release

(Note the changed input as of CS2) A standing pose with a high/projectile autoguard that can be held for just over a second (Throws and lows still work against you). When the move ends your Spark bolt guarge increases a significant amount (Based on how long you were in this stance). Because it is a special move, you can special cancel into it as a means of baiting bursts, DPs etc, but be wary that it has a a vulnerable recovery which your opponents will take advantage of if you let them. In the first ten frames of this move it is possible to cancel it into Genesic Emerald Tager Buster (See below) which offers a way of performing it without needing to buffer it in some way.

A useful super move that has 50+ frames of auto-guard and throw invulnerability. When used against a magnetized opponent, Tager will gravitate towards them as opposed to pulling them towards you, and you have some directional control of tager during the spinning part of the move. Useful in combos and as a counter to jump-ins. On block, it should be RCed and followed-up with pressure or mind games. Breaks two guard primers. Not afftected by combo rate. Following this move up depends heavily on how high up you opponent was when the last hit strikes, (The higher the better).

Follow up to Magna-Tech Wheel, does really good damage by itself but if you got 50 meter you might as well use it for rapids. Use only for the kill or to gain a health lead in a time out situation. Note that to make sure it hits, you want to input the command so that you press B just momentarily after your opponent starts falling from the previous hit. You can activate it much earlier than this, which typically will make it miss. Often possible to follow up with a quick move but Terrabreak prorates so badly that you won't get any damage from it.

A highly damaging super grab, and the super you will probably be using most often. Invincible on startup, and starts attracting magnetised opponents two frames after activation (before the super flash) and can be held like 360A, although it will not be invincible during this time. Unlike 360A, this attack will grab even if you're still holding down the button, which makes it very easy to use.
