Overview[edit]

Katalina is another well-rounded character based on "shoto" architype. While her simple play style is similar to Gran, better range on many of her rapier normal attacks and dash follow-up from her Light Wall means that Katalina can afford to fight more defensively, relying on footsies to play bait-punish game during neutral to open up her opponent before going in.

"I weild this sword to protect those dear to me."
Lore: A former knight of the Erste Empire.

Her strong sense of justice led her to betray the empire and free Lyria, the very prisoner she was charged with guarding.
Now, having become a pillar of strength for the entire crew, she is both Gran and Lyria's greatest supporter —and Vyrn's greatest admirer.
She employs skillful swordplay and a magic blade in her fighting style, utilizing techniques that are peerless in both beauty and strength.
When it comes to battle, there are few situations she can't handle.

Pros Cons
  • Her normals are excellent for both pressure and footsies. Far M is particularly egregious.
  • Frozen Blade is an absolutely stellar projectile, allowing her to zone very effectively.
  • Emerald Sword is both an anti-air and an invulnerable wakeup option
  • Light Wall allows her to mixup both her pressure and approach
  • Her mixup is unremarkable

"Am I winning the neutral yet?"
Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On Block On Hit
L - All 16 - - -10 -6
M - All 16 - - -10 -5
H - All 16 - - +4 KD

Shoots an ice sword projectile. Your traditional fireball. This move is absolutely vital to your gameplan, and you will be cancelling most of your pokes into this to make them safe and even plus in some situations.

  • L version flies slower
  • M version flies faster
  • H version hits three times. The extra 2 hits will extend blockstun and corner combos.


Emerald Sword[edit]

*Orie flashbacks intensify*
Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On Block On Hit
L - All 7 - - -17 KD
M - All 7 - - -22 KD
H - All 7 - - -17 KD

Rising rapier swing with invulnerability. Anti-air DP. L and M versions only air unblockable on startup, EX Version all hits air unblockable.


Enchanted Lands[edit]
Enchanted Lands
214X or 2/4S

*Orie flashbacks continue to intensify*
Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On Block On Hit
L - All 18 - - -10 (at worst) KD
M - All 21 - - -8 (at worst) KD
H - All 16 [17-76] - - -10 (at worst) [+2] KD

Advancing rapier thrust.

  • L version is a quick thrust. You'll most likely use this in combos.
  • M version does a backstep first before advancing. The backthrust is useful against Ferry, as it can dodge and punish her 5M/2M.
  • H version causes a wallbounce in the corner, and can be charged for higher damage. It's most likely going to be used before EX Fireball in corner combos as DP is close enough to get knockdowns.
