Overview[edit]

"Hurry up and get ready..."

Backstory[edit]

The main Heroine of the Under Night In Birth series. Hundreds of years ago, Linne and her brother Kuon were experimented on in the hopes of creating new abilities. The result of these experiments was Linne gaining the ability to transfer her consciousness from one body to another. Even if she is killed, her consciousness will automatically transfer to a new body on its own. Not wanting to continue to possess young girls and ruin their lives, Linne searches for a way to end her immortal existence. Recently, Linne has found a solution through a powerful sword which can finally end her life permanently named the Indulgence of Sever Rending (the Insulator) - Hyde's sword. But before he can grant her wishes, a woman claiming to be the leader of "Amnesia" leaves them with a cryptic message, "I'll be waiting at the Abyss on this Hollow Night, Princess."

Playstyle[edit]

Although she has limited reach, Linne is a fast character that can cross the screen quickly, especially on the ground. Her Kuuga projectile is a powerful neutral tool from midrange capable of controlling space very well and making the opponent more cautious about their approach or attempting to try and keep her out when they're within range. She also has the unique ability to triple jump for greater control of aerial movement and timing, especially with j.Kuuga's all-around extreme usefulness. Master Linne's fast movement and Kuuga's ability to control space so that you can close the gap and start applying pressure.

Strengths/Weaknesses[edit]

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Fast movement and normals
  • Great 5B with large disjointed hitbox that doubles as an anti-air and a launcher
  • Strong neutral game with the use of air Kuuga
  • Only character that can triple jump
  • Extremely low damage
  • Offers very weak assists, making her primarily a point
  • No fullscreen attacks, so she might have a hard time punishing fullscreen supers despite her speed
  • Jump height is shorter than most, to make up for having more of them


EXS of Rapid Drive: Speed Star[edit]

Linne's EXS allows Linne to increase her speed by a large amount. In Under Night in Birth, this ability was reflected in Linne's gameplay by giving her a fast run speed, a double jump and dash cancels on specific moves. A lot of the gameplay perks of her EXS return in BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle.

By inputting 66, Linne can dash cancel the following moves:

  • Smart Combo 1 - 4th move (5AAAA)
  • Smart Combo 2 - 3rd and 4th move (4AAA and 4AAAA)
  • Smart Combo 3 - 3rd move (5BBB)
  • Ground versions of Kuuga

Dash cancels can be canceled into Whirlwind.

  • Head invul frames 11 to 18

Linne's old 6C, Wolf Howl - Gunrou and it's every bit as massive and disjointed and is now a proper anti air with head invul. It also launches upwards making it perfect for combos.

Follow up to 5BB. Not very notable.

5BBB 1700 All 21 5 25 -11
  • knocksdown

B auto combo ender that can be chained into other normals. Useful for ending combos as it knocks down and can be jump cancelled, leading into a safe jump. Be careful using this in blockstrings however, there's a gap between 5BB and this, letting the enemy get supers and DPs off if they're quick enough.

Ground 500*9 Air Unblockable - - - -

Linne's old EX-version DP. A bit slow but very massive multi-stage DP. If your opponent manages to evade the first few hits the last ones reach all around her and will likely catch them.

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
Ground A 1500 All 21 - - -4
Air A 1500 - - - - -

Linne's trademark move. Excellent projectile for zoning and controlling space. Goes a shorter distance and can be dash cancelled.

Air Kuuga is easily her best move as it is very plus on block and is useful for neutral. Can be followed up at certain heights so it is a strong combo starter. Tiger knee the input for best results! The A version goes at a much shallower angle.

Ground B 1500 All 12 - - -11
Air B 1500 - - - - -

B version goes further and can also be dash cancelled, however, dash cancelling B Kuuga on block is unsafe.

The aerial version goes further out with a wider angle and has a significantly higher startup.


Whirlwind[edit]
Whirlwind - Fuurin

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.

Linne's classic 6AB dashing roll, which can now be done standalone from neutral. Not an attack but it has invincibility and is useful for dodging projectiles or attacks. It's also useful to setup sneaky cross ups with assist.


Flying Swallow[edit]
Flying Swallow - Hien
214B

EX Kuuga. Has more hits and does more damage and is also better on block. From certain distances 236C > dash > 2C can be linked.

UNI Dash C
BBTag Linne 5AAA.png
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
800*3 All 32 - - -

Her old dash C. Decent that is multi-hitting like both versions of her old 5C. Use it to extend combos or as blockstring filler.


6P[edit]
6P
Air Twin Sky Fang - Midair Sou Kuuga
BBTag Linne KuugaAir.png
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
1700 All 52 - - -

Really really slow assist. Linne will first run on screen then do a full jump before executing the move. Can be used in neutral to help cover approaches but it's very slow so Linne can easily be hit during the animation.


4P[edit]
4P
Moon Gyre - Getsurin
BBTag Linne Getsurin.png
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
1500*2 All 28 - - -

Her DP assist via the old A version of the attack. Works as a decent defensive assist and launches in combos. You can tag if the assist hits and continue the combo with Linne by herself.

Unfortunately not + on block in this game. It's very very punishable. Has invincibility and is her primary super ender. The final part of the animation where she swings her sword backwards also has a hitbox, so if you dodge an enemy Linne's usage of this then be careful on how you approach her.

Linne's old force function animation but now enhanced into a super. Does more damage than her other super, but is unsafe on block, making it a weak reversal option. Has Invul throughout the startup
