Overview

"Don't... think we're the same, you little brat. You think the whole world hates you because someone didn't treat you right... You're nothing but a little kid throwing a tantrum."

Backstory

He’s just a normal police officer. Nothing to see here. Ignore the persona.

Playstyle

Strengths/Weaknesses

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Above average damage, especially with heat riser buff.
  • Two versions of Maziodyne that allows setups and long range harassment.
  • Said Maziodyne's B version has excellent lockdown ability, especially when combined with Active Switch.
  • Has decent air normals.
  • Solid assist kit.
  • Mixup game solo is rather weak.
  • DP is very poor, perhaps even the worst in the game.
  • Persona reliant, making him more susceptible to racking up damage from Persona Break.
  • Midrange game isn’t very good, as a lot of his grounded buttons don’t sport a lot of range.

Persona: Magatsu Izanagi

Heat Riser Buff

Successfully landing Adachi's 214A, Heat Riser, applies a 10% damage buff to all of Adachi's attacks. The buff is removed if Adachi is hit afterwards. While active, a icon of Adachi face with a red ↗ will appear next to the Skill Gauge. Numbers in [] are damage values while Heat Riser is active.

5A
  • Jump cancelable on both hit and block.
  • Only hits once.

Adachi's old 5B, a quick hand swipe.

5AA
  • Jump cancelable on hit and block.

Adachi pistol whips his opponent 3 times. The 2nd part of his old 5B with an extra hit.

5AAA

Adachi's old Furious Action. A jumping gun slam followed by a kick that knocks the gun away. Gun will still appear in his hand for 5AAA somehow.

5AAAA

Megidola returns as his autocombo ender. Hitgrab that cant be followed up with anything else (besides Cross Raid).

  • Not a hitgrab, all 3 hits are now separate moves

Adachi's 5C returns as a 3-part 5B. Magatsu Izanagi stabs at the opponent with the same animation of Yu's 5BB(or P4AU 2C), before slamming them into the ground and stomping them. Useful for pressure as Personas cant be pushblocked.[1]

2B
  • Jump cancelable on both hit and block.

A jumping kick that sends Adachi into the air. Horribly negative on block/whiff, but can be jump-cancelled on hit and block. This will use your 2nd jump however, so be wary when throwing it out.

2BB
  • Grab followup only comes out on hit

Adachi's old 2C. Magatsu Izanagi lunges upward to grab an opponent before dive kicking them into the ground. Unburstable attack, but cant be followed up solo.

THIS NOT AN OVERHEAD
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • On use, puts you in recovery until you land or special / super cancel.
  • If special cancelled, you regain your double jump / airdash / air normals.
  • Vorpal Blade (236C) is an excellent special to cancel into as it has the least amount of recovery frames of all air specials and makes j.B extremely safe at the cost of 1 bar.


j.C
j.C
P4AU Adachi j2C.png
Hey you, whatcha gonna do?
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • No longer a grab, air blockable and burstable on hit
  • Has a deadzone at point-blank range

Adachis old j.2C. Magatsu Izanagi dives upward to attack airborne opponents. If the first hit connects, he will automatically divekick them into the ground.

j.C, while no longer air unblockable, retains its use as a valid combo tool. Can be followed up solo both midscreen and in corner. While it shares an animation with 2BB, j.C is not a grab. Because of this the 2nd hit will sometimes whiff on opponents hit by the first.

Stance
Attack
  • Counter parry can only be occurred at frame 1 when Calm Down! is activated

Adachi slowly walks forward. Any attack that hits him during the first few frames will trigger his Pain In The Ass! followup. If uninterrupted, the followup will still come out after a short time. The followup portion is Air Unblockable.

Perhaps an out of season April Fools joke, this DP is a contender for the worst in the game. Catch frames are incredibly short (1-2 frames?), and the followup hitbox can whiff entirely on aerial attacks, as well as attacks from behind. Additionally, as it uses his lunging A followup and not his B grab version from previous entries, it can be blocked - and is very unsafe.

214A
P4AU Adachi 236236A.png
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.

Magatsu Izanagi creates a pillar of flame, if this move connects Adachi gets a damage buff that lasts until he gets hit.

  • This buff grants Adachi 10% bonus damage.
  • Damage applies to almost all of his moves, even moves like his assists and 5C's crash followup (even when Adachi doesn't initiate it!)
  • Does not improve his DHC damage.


Magatsu Mandala

214B
P4AU Adachi 214214A.png
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Slow startup, but if it connects it will launch the opponent high into the air, making for easy follow-ups.
  • Will combo after throw.

Magatsu Mandala returns as Adachis 214B. Adachi strikes a pose as a red vortex surges around him and Magatsu Izanagi. No longer has its amazing reversal traits or its status inducing buffs, but retains its combo-extending ability. It also sees some use in corner oki it situations where B Ziodyne could be evaded. If Magatsu Izanagi is displaced from Adachi, the vortex will appear at the Persona's location.


Ghastly Wail
Ghastly Wail
214C
P4AU Adachi 214214C1.png
P4AU Adachi 214214C.png
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
  • Is both a command grab and a hitgrab, meaning it cannot be blocked and it can grab an opponent in hitstun.

Adachi's old command grab super returns as his 214C. Slow, but unlike most C specials it does not cost meter, making it slightly harder to react to as there's no blue flash. Grab range is smaller than the animation lets on.

Ghastly Wail is a decent mixup tool that becomes powerful when combined with Active Switch or Resonance Blaze. Adds unburstable damage onto your combo while your partner can setup a big punish. Also sees use as an ender as it does a good chunk of damage while Heat Riser is active, and grants a safejump.[2]

  • Magatsu Izanagi will appear wherever the opponent was upon the moves activation.

Adachi's old 2D/j.2D returns in all of its glory. Adachi shoots the Persona card above him as Magatsu Izanagi plunges down onto the opponent. Similar to the 2nd hit of his and Narukami's Cross Slash super. Big damage, and has a groundsplash hitbox making it harder to avoid than it looks.

This move is great for extending combos from anywhere on screen, as it combos into 5B on hit. It can also be used as raw callout to projectiles or moves with lengthy startup, forcing the opponent to respect Adachi as long as he has meter. Has some startup, but a failed attempt at breaking the Persona can be deadly.

"What do you mean im not +2 on block anymore?"
Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.

Magatsu Izanagi swings his sword, unleashing a multislash across the entire screen. Leaves Adachi wide open if the opponent blocks.

This move hits everywhere similar to Akihiko's Maziodyne, allowing you to punish attacks from fullscreen on reaction. Can be used as a reversal when Adachi has 2 bars, but be careful of the moves recovery, as any punish will be a Counter Hit.
