Overview[edit]

Wizard from the backyard. Ramlethal can fight using her two giant swords equipped or by setting them up to attack separately. Deployed swords can be used to control space in neutral, force the opponent to block after a knockdown or as part of blockstrings to keep them pinned down so Ramlethal can go for mixups.

Strengths[edit]

  • Great normals when equipped with her swords.
  • Good mixup and pressure off corner knockdowns
  • Extremely oppressive corner game with swords set
  • Midscreen combos have good corner carry
  • Trance super

Weaknesses[edit]

  • Normals have poor range without swords equipped.
  • Lacks a meterless reversal
  • Neutral game can be difficult to setup

22 Mid - YRP 6 3 15 -4
  • Farthest reaching ground normal that doesn't rely on S sword to be equipped.
  • Lacks reward on hit but due to its attack level, startup and range, its a good a normal to cancel into sword summon or recall.

25 High - YRP 28 6 21 -13
  • A typical dust attack, very slow and unsafe.

Damage Guard Cancel Roman Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv.
8 Mid - YRP 5 4 6 0
  • Standard crouching punch with less range, frame advantage and more startup than 5P.
  • Not a whole lot of reasons to use this move other than it doesn't whiff on crouching Millia and Faust.

15 Low - YRP 6 5 9 -2
  • Standard crouching short that hits low.
  • Despite its frame advantage, it works well in blockstrings due to its range and the fact that it hits low.

70 Mid - YRP 25 9 27 -17
  • Big normal that slams the opponent into the ground for a knockdown
  • Slower than 2S but reaches a bit further horizontally. Has some uses in neutral when S sword is deployed.
  • Primarily used after 2S to make it safer.
  • Difficult to punish on block due to the amount of pushback, but its possible.
  • Bounces on counterhit, difficult to combo off unless its in the corner.

  • Important normal for airdash mixup. Alternate between airdashing and starting an air chain with j.K or landing and hitting them low.
  • Cancels into sword summons.

  • A big, downwards sword bonk that travels all the way to the ground regardless of height.
  • Beats most anti-air normals if done high enough, but is unsafe on block if done too high.
  • Can be cancelled into 214K on block to stay safe and + on block.


j.D[edit]

j.8D, j.2D, j.6D 40 (for j.8D: 34) All - YRP 11 8 24 + 5 Landing recovery -
  • Blows opponents away in the direction used to input the move.
  • Can be used to both extend and end air combos due to its high untechable time.
  • j8D can be used to stop air approaches, such as opponents jumping/airdashing over Trance.
  • j2D now causes knockdown and can be canceled into j214K to reach the ground faster.


Combination Attacks[edit]

Combination attacks are unique to Ramlethal and have different rules compared to her normal gatlings. P and K normals can only be cancelled into combination attack strings or sword summons, except for 5P and 2P which can chain into themselves or 2K. Only the first and second attacks can be cancelled into sword summons. After the third attack you cant cancel into anything. Combination attacks can be chained even on whiff.

  • Important in corner combos as it wall slams allowing for extended combos.
  • Decent midscreen combo ender as it blows the opponent away. Not much time for proper oki but it works.

  • 5PK on air hit, can combo into 4S/H or 6S/H and still have enough time to continue the combo with more normals.
  • 4K ender launches and leads to additional combo routes.

  • Same as the 5KKK string but with an alternate ender.
  • 4K is an interesting move that launches and causes a knockdown. Also slightly pulls opponents out of the corner allowing you to cross them up on wakeup.
  • 4K can also be done after 5P.

  • First and second hits only combo on crouching, third hit does not combo at all.
  • Last hit is an overhead that is great on block and ground bounces on ground hit, causes knockdown on air hit. Useful for setting up oki midscreen.
  • If used as a blockstring, be aware of the gap between the second and third hits.
  • KPK IS MYSTERIOUSLY GONE

  • Third hit has the same animation as 2KPK but launches on hit instead of knocking down.
  • Last hit is very unsafe on block and will not combo on a standing opponent.
  • Ramlethal is airborne during the startup of the last hit, which can be RC'd to put Ramlethal in the air but very low to the ground. Can be followed up either by jK for an overhead or 2D for a low.

  • Starts out hitting low and can end with either an overhead or a low.
  • Despite the sweep ender having the same animation as the third attack of 2PPK it does not launch but instead causes knockdown and also always combos regardless of standing or crouching.
  • Very unsafe if the final hit is the low option.
  • Just like 5KPP, be aware of the gap between the second and third hits if you choose to use the overhead.

54 Ground Throw: 75250 - R 1 - - +53
  • Standard throw. Leads to okizeme.
  • Forced 55% proration. Unless the following combo will kill, its never worth it to RC due to the amount of hits during the actual throw.
  • If a deployed 2S or 2H sword hits the enemy during this animation, you can go for a combo without spending meter.

GGXRD Ramlethal swordplacement2.png
GGXRD Ramlethal swordplacement.png

Using 6H or 6S causes one of the two familiars to do a tracking teleport to the opponent and attack once. The familiars will standby at the spot where they teleported initially until they are summoned again. She can cancel the majority of her normals into a summon as well as the second hit of combination attacks.

  • Using 6S or 6H replaces the normals done with that button with new ones.
  • Ramlethal is in counterhit state during the entire animation of deploying a sword.
  • Blocking or getting hit will cause any deployed swords to stop attacking.
  • A sword cannot be summoned again until the familiar starts glowing again.
  • While equipped, sword summons have less recovery.
  • On the intitial 6S/H, the sword will always go through the teleport animation. Any summons afterward can skip the teleport animation if the opponent is close by, causing the attack to come out much faster.
  • Added falling animation to swords being interrupted (increasing time before usable again) and familiars can now be hit on startup
