Overview[edit]

Make way for the jolly pirate!

May is a spunky youngster and first mate of the Jellyfish Pirates. Her character is much defined by her massive crush on Johnny because let's face it who doesn't love him?

May's gameplay is defined by her amazing normals, extremely good air mobility, and her oceanic moveset. Some of her larger normals are so oppressive with such great hitboxes that challenging them is suicide. She has the ability to run trains on players not aware of how to deal with her dolphins, air control, and excellent moves. Things like her 6P, Restive Rolling, FB Vertical Dolphins, and Applause for the victim can be suffocating. In many cases the best plan of action is for them to just FD and wait for her to make a mistake.

Despite being strong all around, May lacks damage conversion outside of the corner without meter. She doesn't have the best options against zoners besides simply dancing around in the air, and some of go-to mixup options such as 3C are extremely punishable if blocked or they miss. Overall though, May is a very solid and very annoying character

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Large normals with excellent hitbox/hurtbox ratios
  • Big corner damage conversion
  • Dominating air mobility and control
  • Above average grab range
  • Tricky crossup game
  • Very strong overdrives with a variety of ultility
  • High stun resistance
  • One of the better backdashes in the game
  • 6P. Don't get hit by this. Ever.
  • No meterless defensive options besides jumping out and backdash
  • Lacks damage midscreen without meter
  • Overhead Kiss has a huge tell
  • Dolphins can be stuffed during startup by aware opponents
  • Extremely vulnerable when she overextends

May does a standard jab, It's pretty fast and the range on it is very short, mostly used for extending her Dolphin Loop and tick OHK set-ups. Will whiff on some crouching characters.

33 Mid SJR 12 3 20 -6

May extends her anchor out as far as she can at waist height. May's longest range poke and is a good followup after 5K on block or hit. Got upgraded to level 4 in +R. Can be used for mid range knockdowns in conjunction with 3K but at max range 3K will not combo so be wary of this problem.

Uncharged 70 Mid SR 16 6 34 -21
Charged 70 Mid SR 19~29 6 31 -18
Maximum Charge 90 High SR 27 6 21 -8

Can be whiff canceled. Can be used as a high risk, high reward antiair as it has a huge hitbox as well as decent active frames but slow recovery. Max charge on ground hit causes stagger which can be comboed from. Very high damage with good stun and can be comboed from depending on height. It is used a lot more often in this iteration for corner pressure and mixup afterwards. Special cancellable before and after active frames.

GGXXACPR May 5D-Hitbox.png
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
22 High R 28 3 18 -4

Simple low poke
GGXXACPR May 2P-Hitbox.png
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
10 Mid CSJR 5 4 6 0

May does a short range poke with the small end of her anchor. Useful for mashing out of close range pressure and can be hit confirmed into a 2D knockdown and/or corner carry. 80% proration.

GGXXACPR May 2K-Hitbox.png
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
14 Low SR 7 4 9 -3

May slides down on the ground and pokes with her foot. Medium range poke that can lead to knockdown or combo with 2D. Can be used to low profile certain jump ins and DPs. 80% proration.

Frames 12-20

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
24 Low RF 8 21 20 -29

May slides on the ground head first about 1/3-1/2 of the screen. Extreme low profile after the first 7 frames at the cost of being incredibly unsafe on block and in CH state until recovery. Must be FRC/RCed to make safe. Knocks down on hit. Can be very useful in dealing with characters with projectiles but easily baited and punished harshly if done predictably.


[edit]
2S
GGAC May 2S.png
Decent ranged poke
GGXXACPR May 2S-Hitbox.png
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
26 Mid SR 9 3 15 -4

May extends her anchor out in front of her fairly far while crouched. Used to extend some of her corner combos. Somewhat useful as a medium/far range poke or can be used to knockdown if close enough with 2D.

[edit]

Hitbox goes under the floor
GGXXACPR May 2H-Hitbox.png
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
44 Low SR 14 3 16 0

Staggers on hit (Max 31F). Can be used to low profile or clash with wakeup DPs if spaced correctly. Can't really combo from it unless opponent is sleeping, but OHK can work.


[edit]

Frames 12-17

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
30 Low SR 7 10 8 -1

May does a split and extends her leg out in front of her. It's incredibly fast, lots of active frames, safe on block, and has decent range. One of May's most important moves due to it being hit confirmable into a large majority of her damaging combos. Almost all her ground normals chain into this move making most of them safer.


[edit]

Maybe they'll think I'm air blocking and walk into it...
GGXXACPR May jP-Hitbox.png
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
14 High, Air CSR 5 6 6 -

Very short range but her fastest air normal. Useful for option select air throws and for air to ground or air to air block strings with jK.

[edit]
j.K

Frames 9-11

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
24 High, Air SR 6 6 8 -

Quite fast and more range than her jP. Also useful for option select air throws and for air to ground or air to air block strings with jP.

[edit]
j.S
GGAC May jS.png
Mad strugg- wait, that's not Johnny's move.
GGXXACPR May jS-Hitbox.png
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
30 High, Air SJR 13 4 5 -

Very slow and generally not as useful as jH and j2H. It can be used to beat/trade with certain 6Ps though as the hitbox extends much deeper into the opponent, but comes at the cost of being antiaired with quick normals like 5P. Also useful for IAD jS > jH which is her most used IAD jumpin.

[edit]
j.H
GGAC May jH.png
Fish for counter hits
GGXXACPR May jH-1-Hitbox.png

Frames 12-15

GGXXACPR May jH-2-Hitbox.png

Frames 16-21

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
40 High, Air SR 12 10 15 -

Fairly slow but has a great hitbox and leads to combos on counter hit. Very useful in neutral game to try to fish counter hits although it is not as useful as it was in AC. Weak to air throws, properly timed antiairs, and fast air normals. Can be used to safe jump wakeup super/DPs.

[edit]
j.2H
GGAC May j2H.png
Fish for crossups
GGXXACPR May j2H-Hitbox.png
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
41 High, Air SR 13 until landing 0 -

Level 4 attack on block. May's best jump in tool which is fairly hard to deal with for most characters; however, all characters can jump, instant block, and then throw you to deal with this move. Leads to big damage on hit or counter hit with 25% meter.

[edit]

Why swing my anchor when I can hit you with my thick skull?
GGXXACPR May jD-Hitbox.png
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
38 High, Air SJR 10 12 24+ landing 5 -

Good at building stun and as an air to air if opponent is above you. Can be used to stop air momentum and stall in the air for a short time. Used in most air combos. Used in gimmicky "infinite" corner pressure after a jK. (i.e. jK > jD > jK > jD > jH)


Universal Mechanics[edit]

[edit]

55 43 pixels - - - - -

Can be comboed from by dashing and using Ultimate Whiner which makes it more useful in this iteration.

[edit]
Air Throw
GGAC May airThrow.png
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
60 96 pixels - - - - -

It has the second best air throw range (this used to tie with I-No, but she was nerfed into having the worst range). Only Potemkin has a better air throw range wise. Cannot be comboed from.

[edit]
Dead Angle Attack
GGAC May 6P.png
Maaaay PAAAUUUUNNNNCH

25 All R 16 6 18 -10

Very slow DAA compared to other characters which means it easier to bait. Not very useful unless in a pinch.

Frames 35-36

GGXXACPR May 5DHold-2-Hitbox.png

Frames 37-38

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
38 Low R 35 4 25 -12

Very slow and generally not very useful other than the mixup of 5D, but both can be blocked with proper timing without knowing which it will be. Has a smaller range than 5D so need to space accordingly.


[edit]
Mr. Dolphin Horizontal S
[4]6S/H
GGAC May 46S.png

Version Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
S 50 All F 7 10 8 + 3 after landing -9
H 50 All F 8 20 7 + 3 after landing -9

Causes Slide state on air hit. A staple in her new corner combos. Has lots of active frames. Mostly used exclusively in combos. As a solitary move it is sometimes safe on block due to spacing but some characters can punish it. You will give up the neutral game even if the opponent cannot punish you, though. Must be jump installed in block strings for jump/airdash after FRC. Auto-JIs if done alone?

[edit]
Mr. Dolphin Vertical S
[2]8S/H
GGAC May 28S.png

Version Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
S 50 Mid/HA F 8 20 3 after landing -15
H 50 Mid/HA F 8 27 landing 3 -13

Useful as an overhead, but they are very unsafe on block now and most characters can punish them so be sure to FRC. On hit and FRC will lead to high damage. Has more recovery than in AC which prevents the many dolphin loops, at least without FRC. Used in the majority of combos. Must be jump installed in block strings for jump/airdash after FRC. Auto-JIs if done alone?

[edit]
Restive Rolling
623S/H
GGAC May 623S.png

Ground, S 30 Mid RF 13 40 22 + landing 15 -63

Air, H 30 High, Air RF 16 40 landing 15 +1
Hard to Port
Direction + S/H
18 All R 5 24 landing 15 -

Much more useful in +R. Used in fuzzy guards into combos with FRC. Used in some combos to knockdown and/or for additional damage. With FRC they can be used to escape the corner quickly.

[edit]
Applause for the Victim
41236P/K/S/H/D

Hey Johnny look, I can control these hoops with my mind!
Version Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
Dolphin (release Button) 20 Mid RF 23 12 21 -19
Dolphin (release Button) 22 x 1/2/3/6 All - 49 - - 3

Will release automatically two seconds after reaching maximum charge. Displays charge time above Tension Guage. Useful after knockdowns for oki setups or at neutral to gain the advantage. D version can be used for certain burst bait setups into combos.

[edit]
Overhead Kiss

GGAC May 63214K.png
Potemkin Bust- aww $#%! it
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
40 90 pixels R 25 1 - -

May dashes forward and then grabs the opponent (dash looks like her normal dash but slightly quicker). Has some strike invincibility (~5 frames?) before it activates. On whiff it is FRCable which should always be option selected in case the opponent jumps to lead into vertical dolphins.


Force Breaks[edit]

[edit]
Jackhound
214D
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
38 High R 24 10 35 -26

Used to continue combos on opponents in OTG state. Pretty slow/obvious overhead but can be RCed for an expensive frame trap.

GGAC May 46SD.png
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
22 All - 1 20 landing 14 +10

A staple in all virtually all her new combos. Good at corner carrying mid/heavy characters with 6P loops as well as building dizzy. Can be used at neutral to gain the advantage or go through most projectiles. Must be jump installed in block strings/combos for jump/airdash after FRC. Auto-JIs if done alone?

[edit]
Go, Mr. Dolphin! Vertical
58D during any Mr. Dolphin Vertical
GGAC May 28SD.png
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
22 All - 1 - total 16 -

Her best tool for extending pressure. Used rarely in combos except for starter. Can be used at neutral to establish advantage and goes over a lot of projectiles. Must be jump installed in block strings/combos for jump/airdash. Auto-JIs if done alone?


Overdrives[edit]

[edit]
Ultimate Whiner
63214H

WWWWAAAAAAHHHHH WHY WONT JOHNNY PAY ATTENTION TO ME!!!!
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
25, 17x8 Mid R 7+2 3 26 -10

Good reversal but unsafe on block. Can RC on block to make safe/advantageous. Vacuums on hit which means they won't get knocked out of it anymore. Can be used to cancel OTG state to extend combos or off of normal throws. If used to cancel OTG state they can tech as soon as next OTG state occurs.

[edit]
Great Yamada Attack
236236S
GGAC May 236236S.png
You can't Fuujin the whale. Do not attempt to Fujin the whale.
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
110 Mid - 9+0 - total 74 -

Can be used as an antiair and has some upper body invincibility on startup. Can be comboed into from a 6P combo depending on spacing. Depending on opponent height when they get hit it can be comboed from. Only 9+0 directly above/behind May.

[edit]
Super Screaming Ultimate Spinning Whirlwind
63214S
GGAC May 63214S.png
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
24x10 Mid R 1+14 {2(12)}x9,2 15 +2

Has infinite superarmor and can be used to get out of a bad situation. Will lose to Overdrives and throws. It can be thrown from a decent range on startup with proper timing or after slashbacking one of the hits. As a reversal it is very hard to hit with since it starts 14 frames after the superflash, but if they are forced to block you are at advantage after Deluxe Goshogawara Bomber. If you hit them near the corner you will have to cancel into Deluxe Goshogawara Bomber before they fly over you to not lose an advantageous setup afterwards. It is also pretty good at chipping out the opponent if they are out of meter and are not confident enough to slashback > throw it. Also extremely useful against Eddie setups.

[edit]
Deluxe Goshogawara Bomber
P during Super Screaming etc.
GGAC May 63214SP.png
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
48 Mid - 11 10 14 +20

Makes Super Screaming Ultimate Spinning Whirlwind safer and can hit behind her if an opponent ends up on the other side and tries to challenge her. If the opponent gets behind May and tries to punish you can release this into their direction if they hit you while superarmor is still active. OHK is a safe but predictable followup to this as you are +20 on block and OHK has 25 startup frames (with guard point on last few frames). They are forced to do something with throw invincibility or jump.


Instant Kill[edit]

May and the Jolly Crew
During IK Mode: 4123641236H
GGAC May IK1.png
GGAC May IK2.png
Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
Fatal 70 pixels - 7+9 2 - -

Can be inputted 4123641236HS or 6321463214HS no matter what side may is on. 18 frames of invincibility which could somehow be useful if you accidentally activate IK mode. Only really going to land this with a stun, which may does extremely well, and it is also good against ABA.
