Overview
Overview

Percival is a pressure heavy character whose playstyle ramps up as he picks up momentum throughout the course of matches, effectively swinging the tide into his favor.


"Behold the power of the Lord of Flames."
Lore:He travels to lands far and wide to learn the secrets of statecraft, all in hopes of founding his dream country. Before he set out on a journey to achieve such lofty goals, he and Lancelot served as officers in the same order of knights, studying under the same master. He received his nickname, the Lord of Flames, from the noble way he wields his blazing long sword. Those who come face-to-face with him find themselves either entranced or terrified by his abilities.

Playstyle
GBVS Percival Icon.png Percival is a slow footsies-rushdown character who pressures the opponent by charging up stocks to empower his big special moves.
Pros Cons
  • Rounded Moveset: allows him to contend against anyone.
  • Good Range On both his normal and special attacks.
  • Meterless Reversal with Platzen.
  • High offensive Pressure: All far normals combo into Zerreissen, giving high damage and a knockdown from any range.
  • Projectile Frame Advantage: Anzünden is plus on block if spaced out, which complements Percival's midrange poking gameplan perfectly.
  • Command Grab: His ability to scare people into blocking is complimented by his X-Seele command grab that he can combo off of.
  • Charged Stocks Damage: Träumerei stocks boost Percival's damage to incredible levels.
  • Beautiful boi. Praise be to the lord of flames.
  • Slow Projectile: Anzünden projectiles are on the slower side and don't travel far without stocks, making it difficult to contest zoners at certain ranges.
  • Slow Normal Moves Recovery: Making Percival prone to being whiff-punished.
  • Resource Micro-management: Träumerei stocks require micro-management for damage potential.
  • Deceptive Light Attack Range: Light buttons can be deceptive due to animation not fully aligning with the hitbox.
  • Large Hurtbox
By using 22X, Percival gains a number of Träumerei Orbs, 1 from 22L, 3 from 22M, and 5 from 22H. He can store a total of 5 Orbs and it cannot overflow. The next time he uses an M or H special, besides for Träumerei itself, the special will be powered up, increasing its damage and changing its properties.

  • Percival's defining move.
  • Crushingly massive range.
  • Lingering hurtbox.

Percy's f.H is by far his biggest button, as it hits nearly 3/4 of the screen. This button is ridiculous, but it has some downsides to complement its massive range, primarily its hurtbox. The hurtbox is active before the hitbox is, leading to some weird-looking interactions where he gets hit by a button a screen away. It's not just when the move starts up, either. The hurtbox lingers far after it looks like it would be over, allowing for easy whiff punishes by most of the cast. To counteract these weaknesses, all you have to do is make sure it doesn't whiff. If it gets blocked, you can cancel into Dodge (4G), Light Träumerei, or any version of Anzünden to stay safe.

700 Low 7 6 21 -12 HKD -

Universal sweep. Decent range and speed though nothing impressive. Can be special cancelled, provides a way to safely charge up stocks with Träumerei. Also sets up for a safe jump. One of the main ways to continue a combo after Heavy Anzünden in the corner or Schneiden(with stock)

His sweep got buffed in the v1.21 patch, which decreased its recovery. It's now -10 on block instead of -15, making it much safer to throw out.

It then got nerfed in the v2.01 patch, which increased its recovery but not to its original state. It's now -12 on block instead of -10.

0 Throw 14 - - - +12 -

  • Counts as 2 hits for damage scaling purposes

Doesn't deal any damage, but can be followed up with additional attacks. If opponent is in corner can follow up with proximity normal, otherwise can use a far normal like f5H to convert into a knockdown or a super. This move is complemented by Macht as it beats blocking as opposed to c.L beating mashing.

  • As of v1.2, Percival is now +12 after 5U, allowing for a f.H to link midscreen, while also making the c.H in the corner easier and other options midscreen such as f.M and 2U more consistent.

Percival swings his sword and launches a projectile that travels along the ground. The slow speed and way it travels along the ground makes this a really hard move to dodge, and if there's any amount of distance between you and your opponent, it will be meaty enough to be plus. Since it has slower startup and Percival's hurtbox extends below and in front of him, it is prone to end up trading with other normals such as f.M.

  • Data in [] is for when it consumes a Träumerei orb.

L Version
  • Travels to about f.H range and stops fizzles out.
  • Doesn't take a stock.

M Version
  • Travels farther than the L version, and travels fullscreen with a stock.
  • Takes a stock when one is available.

H Version
  • Travels similarly to the M version, but is slower and even at point blank.
  • Takes a stock when one is available.

Performs a downward slash attack during Lord's Strike. Very good frame advantage, so Percival can start his shenanigans before the opponent recovers even on block, with a guess between throw/5U and mashing. When enhanced with a Träumerei orb, causes an unrecoverable knockdown.

  • Data in [] is for when it consumes a Träumerei orb.
  • Every version of Macht launches different on CH, 214L/M~M allows a c.M juggle, 214M/H!~M allows a c.H or a 2H juggle

3600→2600 Mid [Unblockable] 6+7~147 - - -18 HKD -

Performs a powerful advancing attack that can be charged by holding down the button. If fully charged, this skill becomes unblockable. Since it covers a long range, it can be used as both a combo finished or a counter from afar. However, it will not hit at full-screen. The simple input version of this super makes the cinematic trigger smaller, but this typically doesn't matter when confirming out of a poke.

3800→2900 [4800→3800] Mid, All 9+7 - - -18 HKD -

Unleashes a spiral of flames from the hilt of Percival's sword that deals additional hits when holding down the button. If this skill connects at close range, Percival will perform an enhanced version for increased damage. This move can be hard to combo into from midscreen juggles because of the flame spiral causing them to fall out. This leads to it being very unsafe as the opponent will typically tech through the fireball itself.

  • This super can be charged, which increases the hits of the initial tornado from a minimum 6 hits to a maximum of 12 hits. When charged for 6-11 hits, the final hit will do 1900 but when fully charged to 12 hits, the final hit will do 2000.
  • When not at close range, the final swing will fire a bigger version of Anzünden that travels full screen. In certain situations in the corner, you can combo off this when setup properly.

Min Damage: Technical 950→580[1160→760], Simple 760→580[960→760]
