Overview

"I'll teach you...how to fight."

Backstory

Gordeau the Harvester was once a member of the Amnesia organization. One day during a war against the Bankikai, his friend Roger ends up getting turned into a Void due to an unfortunate chain of events. Roger died that day at the hands of the Crimson Knight of Licht Kreis, Erika Wagner, and Gordeau, injured from the battle, could do nothing but watch it happen. After this, Gordeau leaves Amnesia to pursue revenge for his fallen friend instead. Since then, Gordeau has participated in many Hollow Nights, hoping to encounter the Crimson Knight of Licht Kreis again and avenge Roger.

Playstyle

Gordeau wields a scythe called the Demon Sickle "Devourer" that he can summon at will. The Scythe is very large and has a lot of reach. As a result, you'll find that Gordeau has normals, specials and partner skills that have a lot of reach and hit in wide arcs. This allows Gordeau to control a lot of ground space in neutral, making it difficult for others to approach him freely.

Although Gordeau is capable of controlling a lot of space thanks to his scythe, whiffing these scythe normals put him at a severe disadvantage because they have a lot of recovery, often leaving him open to being punished. Gordeau also doesn't move very fast. To make the most of Gordeau, you'll need to learn to judge your spacing well and optimally make use of his long reaching options.

Strengths/Weaknesses

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Great range on his scythe normals
  • One of the easier characters to learn and play, with easy to execute combos to boot.
  • Reverse beat and grim reaper allow him to confirm most grounded hits into a full combo/blockstring
  • Excellent anti-air options with 2B and 214B.
  • Command grabs that steal meter.
  • S-tier assists easily makes him one of the best "team players" in the whole game.
  • Above average health
  • Good reversal action that can even be used in the air
  • Can do grab into his 214B+C distortion for high damage, even when not in resonance
  • Lackluster 5C that is slow and can whiff if the opponent is too near.
  • Somewhat slow in general.
  • Usually has to end aerial combos with the air version of his DP, which means, for the most part, you can't extend an aerial combo by using a grounded assist like most other characters
  • 5B extends his hurtbox to ridiculous lengths.
  • Very sub-par high-low mixup.
  • Certain moves are unsafe when misused in neutral without an assist to cover them.


EXS of Greed : Snatcher

Gordeau EXS gives him the unique ability to form purple claws on his right hand that he can use to rip pieces of a person's soul from them. In Under Night in Birth, this unique ability was adapted into his gameplay by allowing his Assimilation command grabs to steal GRD. However, in BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle, this ability allows Gordeau to steal a small chunk of his opponent's Skill Gauge instead. In addition, the more damage you do against the opponent during a combo, the higher the amount of meter you will steal.

The following moves will steal a bit of the opponent's Skill Gauge on hit:

  • The fourth move of his A Smart Combo (5AAAA)
  • All versions of Assimilation
  • Gordeau's Rusty Nails assist
