BBCF/Noel Vermillion

From Dustloop Wiki

Overview

Overview

Noel is a rushdown character that makes up for her short range with fast dashes and invulnerable options with her drive that can be used for hard reads. Once close to her opponent, Noel boasts a variety of good pressure normals like her 5A that hits on crouching opponents, a self-cancelable 2B and a 2C that is + on block, as well as a varied array of jump cancelable normals, that can lead to a mixup using a Drive Land Cancel (DLC). Her unique drive, although risky, allows for Noel to call out certain moves like reversals while keeping her offense, and in the right scenarios allows her to turn a defensive position into an offensive one.

While Noel is an easy character to get into at first, it is very easy to hit a progress wall due to the unorthodox nature of her tools, odd confirms, character-specific combos and bad habits that can be gained out of the miss-use of drive, therefore it's important to not play Noel like a standard rushdown character.

Despite this, Noel hosts a large variety of combos and offense through creative use of her drive, and her fluid movement is perfect for players who are looking for a fast character with unorthodox tools that require them to be creative on how they approach the game.

Drive: Chain Revolver

Noel's Drives function in two different ways. Upon pressing the D button, Noel uses a Drive attack that is basically just a normal attack. Afterwards however, Noel's normal moves are effectively replaced with a different set of normal moves until she returns to neutral again.

  • Noel may cancel any chain revolver move into any other chain revolver move, even if it misses entirely, with the exception that she may not repeat any move twice in a row.
  • Noel is limited to 4 normal commands after the initial drive starter. Attempts to perform more will be ignored, but she may still perform a special cancel at this point.
  • If chain revolver ends without a special or distortion cancel, Noel performs a short reload animation before being able to perform any other commands again.
  • During Chain Revolver, Noel can cancel into any special and distortion drive move she previously had access to, as well as 3 special moves exclusive this state: Spring Raid, Bloom Trigger, and Assault Through.
  • Noel is in a counterhit state throughout, including during her reload animation.
  • Only the opening drive move may be overdrive cancelled.
  • Since Rapid cancels instantly return a character to neutral, they also immediately end the Chain Revolver state.

Generally speaking, Noel's drive allows for very flexible pressure strings, as there is no fixed order to what moves she uses and a long cancel window to stagger moves out if desired. However given her lengthy recovery if she is forced to reload and that all special cancels are negative on block, ultimately Noel needs to either take risks during drive pressure or lose the initiative if her pressure is successfully defended.

In notation, since they use the same inputs, moves performed during Chain Revolver are denoted by a lowercase "d". e.g. 5C is her normal attack, but d5C is the move performed during chain revolver.
Overdrive: Chain Quasar

Activating Noel's Overdrive has numerous positive effects:

  • The usual improved damage to all Distortion Drives that every character gets.
  • Faster startup speed for drive moves and no reload animation if Noel doesn't input anything, making her drive moves considerably safer on block, (Although not always entirely safe).
  • Bloom Trigger (d.236D) hits more than twice.
  • Assault Through (d.214D) has faster startup and short invisibility before going active.
  • Spring Raid (d.623D) has increased untech time allowing for combos.
  • Thor (j.236236D) allows Noel to recover in the air after the missiles fire.

Normal Moves

StartupThe time before an attack is active. Written startup values include the first active frame, so the startup on a frame chart will display one less square than the written value. Frames
Active The active frames of an attack refers to the amount of time an attack can hit the opponent. Frames
InactiveFrames in the middle of multi-hit attacks which cannot hit the opponent, but are after the move has become active at least once. Frames
Recovery The recovery of an attack refers to the amount of time an attacker must wait before they may perform another action, even blocking. Frames
Special RecoveryThe recovery of an attack refers to the amount of time an attacker must wait before they may perform another action.Recovery frames which happen under abnormal conditions, such as after landing. Frames
ProjectileIndicates an entity that exists separately from the character has become active. Usually something like a Fireball A projectile which usually travels slowly across the screen in a horizontal path above the ground.. Active

A large poke with deceptive reach. 5C is Noel's primary tool to punish with a counter hit.

Overall, 5C is your go to punish starter in most situations, which can lead to very damaging combos potentially up to 8K depending on conditions met and resources at your disposal. On a normal hit it will combo into 3C on crouching opponents. On a counter hit it also leads into damaging combos through 5D, 6B > 5D, or 214A.

It can be used in neutral as the hitboxes on 5C are better and larger than 5B. It is however slower, so Noel must space herself out appropriately to use it. Note that it also does not have significant vertical reach above her so it can also be easily jumped over. Be warned that the muzzle flash visual effect is random, leading this move to be visually deceptive as it may give off the impression that 5C is larger than it really is.

  • Jump cancellable on hit. Throw cancellable on hit or block.
  • Flare clashes with projectiles.
  • Can now sometimes miss if it hits offscreen in corners or if certain characters are within a very close proximity to Noel during the animation. (Inside of the space between Noel and Noel's muzzle flash)

A low hitting jab. Effectively a second 2A.

This move is slightly longer than 2A, but a tad shorter than 5B which makes it decent low attack, and is best used as combo or block string A series of multiple attacks that work well against a blocking opponent. Generally, a block string will be composed of several plus on block or cancelable attacks performed in quick sequence. When blocked, these will slowly push your character out of range and prevent the opponent from counter-attacking, which makes them a very good default, low-risk option when trying to apply offense. filler for frame trap An offensive technique where the attacker leaves a small opening in their offense, goading the defender into performing an attack.

Being able to whiff cancel and having relatively low recovery allows Noel to also bait out twitch reactions in a similar manner to 5A but with a much better reward and less risk. For example, 5B > 2B(w) on block comes in at -4, but it allows Noel to make her pressure much more threatening and less linear with proper reads and conditioning.

This period of time is called hitstun. to always combo into 3C on a crouching hit as long as Noel didn't press too many buttons before.

This button also acts as one of the ways Noel can catch roll attempts in the corner. One of the main setups to do this is to end a combo with with j.214C > j.2C and then do 2C > 2A. Ideally, 2C will catch forward rolls and on neutral tech 2A will let Noel meaty Hitting an opponent to cover the moment as they lose invincibility.

Interestingly enough, if the opponent instant blocks the first hit of 2C, the the game will visually indicate that the second hit of 2C was automatically instant blocked due to there being no gap in between both hits. However, unless the opponent manually inputs an instant block on the second hit, Noel will still maintain her +1 frame advantage despite the game showing that she should be negative instead of plus.

Noel's sad excuse for an anti-air.

While 6A's head invulnerability kicks in early, it only lasts for one frame during its active frames meaning that Noel has to be on point to properly anti-air her opponent with this move. The weak head invulnerability combined with 6A's poor hitboxes often means that Noel can't challenge common disjointed jump ins from other characters such as  Ragna's j.CBBCF Ragna the Bloodedge jC.pngGuardHigh/AirStartup12Recovery32Advantage-,  Jin's j.CBBCF Jin Kisaragi jC.pngGuardHigh/AirStartup10Recovery20+4LAdvantage-,  Nine's j.2CBBCF Nine j2C.pngGuardHigh/AirStartup17RecoveryUntil LAdvantage- and so on without heavy risk. To add on top of that, the recovery of this move significant and exposes Noel to common anti-air baits such as delayed double jumping. If Noel does not land 6A on the opponent whether it be due bad spacing, having the wrong read, or even just being unlucky with the hitboxes, it is very likely that she will get whiff punished.

On the other hand, it's not a good idea to neglect this move, since if used well it can be an asset. At the end of the day it is still her most reliable anti-air and can work often given enough practice using it. It is also a decent move to use on block in pressure due to having a wide variety of options on block such as jump cancelling, 5B, 5C, or 2C. Notably, Noel can reverse beat The ability to ignore the typical Light > Medium > Heavy sequence of buttons, i.e. cancelling a medium attack into a light attack. It allows for a bit more freeform offense since riskier heavy moves can be cancelled into safer light or medium moves. from both 5B and 2B to do strings such as 5B > 6A > 2C to throw the opponent off.

Noel's only standing overhead outside of drive. Pretty average as overheads go and is telegraphed, but has above average scaling compared to other characters', leading to good meterless damage. Noel can also gatling into 6B from a large amount of normals which can make it harder for the opponent to react to.

If blocked, Noel will have to play RPS to continue her pressure: going into drives will enable further mixups, 6B5D is the quickest, though it has a 7f gap that can be mashed. Her other drives have larger gaps, although the invul will kick in by the time the opponent can press, making it much riskier for them to do so.

Other ways to discourage mashing is cancelling into 3C which naturally frametraps and has good reward with its fatal property, although it's not recommended without RC due to heavy frame disadvantage. Another cancel option is 236C which is gapless on normal block, and can be delayed to frametrap. Relatively safe if Noel was pushed out beforehand, but can also be punished if at close range.

In certain cases, it may be preferable to use this move as a reversal punish over 5C when the opponent uses reversals where they end up crouching such as  Jin's RehhyouBBCF Jin Kisaragi 623C.pngGuardMidStartup13Recovery49Advantage-33. In these cases, use counter hit 6C > 214A or counter hit 6C > 6B > 5D for a damaging punish. Overall, 6C is Noel's secondary go to punish starter behind 5C in the event she needs a standing confirm.

It is possible to delay cancel the second hit into 2C or throw as a gimmick to open her opponents up similar to older versions of the game but the window to do so now is very small.

As a jump in, j.B is okay but j.C tends to be better despite being able to be blocked mid. The reason for this is that j.B's hitboxes do not reach that far down vertically so Noel will often have to delay j.B long enough for her to fall on to the opponent which gives them more time to react. If the overhead is desired, it is more common to see Noel first jump with j.C then reverse beat into j.B on block to get a weak F-Shiki Sometimes known as "Fuzzy Overhead".

In neutral, Noel can use this as a unusual spacing tool when combined with an air dash or a second jump after it recovers in the air for some tricky footwork. Another way to use it is to preemptively go into it while falling down onto the opponent to simulate a jump in attempt. j.2C's recoil effect after it recovers helps halt her position in the air for a moment which can be used as a way to dodge an opponent's initial anti air attempt.

5D is Noel's main way to enter drive without leaving a massive gap during her pressure.

It will force the opponent to stand up and then fall into a crumple state which allows Noel to route into a significant amount of damage. The only major downside is that it is clunky to use as a punish due to its significant startup The time before an attack is active including the first active frame. For example, an attack with 10F startup means the attack will do nothing for 9 frames, then hit the opponent on the 10th frame..

In Overdrive, 5D becomes faster. This allows Noel to make most pressure strings leading into 5D gapless and allows Noel to combo 5C into 5D on standing hit.

On block, it can't be cancelled until she lands on the ground which leaves quite a sizeable gap where the opponent can counter attack. Although, unless Noel was very high in the air, she has time to go into Drives and play further mindgames with the invul RPS. With 50 meter, the risk-reward turns significantly into her favor as she can do 623D that's fully invul and leads to a combo on hit, or RC on reaction if blocked.

For combos, the knockdown is good for air to ground routes. In most cases, it's used near the beginning or end of corner combos that use the j.2C → air dash → j.2C route that transitions into j.D right afterwards. Trying to go into j.D after a certain amount of hits will cause it to whiff in a lot of combos after j.C(1) or on a short starter / prorated combo.

The quickest drive followup in Noel's arsenal, normally used to keep an opponent blocking while transitioning into High/Low mixup. Be careful when attempting to transition into d.6D from d.5A.

Used only as combo/blockstring filler. Has a ridiculous amount of blockstun, which makes it able to true blocktring into any of her other drive normals. The absurd blockstun also allows her to Crush Trigger with only about a 3 frame gap. You can use this move to attempt a pressure reset in drive by allowing the reload frames to occur and follow up with 5A or 2A since the reload frames are much faster.

The follow up version of 6D. Doesn't have a long dash with and startup that varies with distance like the starter version. Instead, it has a shorter fixed startup normally, or has an added dash through the opponent when used up close, turning it into a crossup. This is more useful when you become familiar with the j.D landing cancel, allowing you to perform a surprise crossup.

  • Wallbounces midscreeen & in the corner
  • First hit causes stagger, 2nd hit causes blowback effect

Noel's normal drive ender for midscreen combos. On the offensive, this is usually used to help push back an opponent on block to make enough space to escape back into neutral, but is punishable on Instant Block. It can also decently set up a safe jump attempt as a follow up midscreen by IAD into j.C as long as the opponent neutral techs into this situation. However, the opponent can roll tech out of the safe jump attempt, which Noel cannot answer to outside of just chasing them afterwards.

In overdrive Bloom Trigger is usable in corner combos with a prerequisite of a little bit of height to your juggle. The overdrive version adds more hits to Bloom Trigger.

  • Causes blowback ground slide effect on air normal hit
  • Causes blowback wallbounce effect on Counter Hit


Assault Through is a drive special that is occasionally used as a method to produce corner push in midscreen to corner combos, help put the opponent back in the corner in specific corner combos, and lastly help setup 22B corner oki as it provides a hard sliding knockdown state for the setup. It can be used as a weak crossup, though it gives you no real advantage on hit or on block. On CH it wallbounces leading to a decent combo. This move is mainly used to punish opponents who are attempting to punish Noel whiffing drive outside of combo use, the goal is for this to counter hit overall.

Assault Through in overdrive causes a wall bounce on air hit, and allows a standing combo on normal hit. The invuln frames of the overdrive version also cause Noel's sprite to disappear, making it a little harder to block as a crossup, though not much.

Spring Raid is mostly used in corner combos to help maximize Noel's corner damage overall. Can be used in combos midscreen as well but is less prominently used there as opposed to the corner. It is also a somewhat decent way to potentially CH then opponent from trying to hit you on the way down from something like j.D but its risky so be careful not to find yourself in this situation often. Can also be used as an answer to when your opponent activates their overdrive or some slow reversal during your drive pressure, but it's a big risk. Remember you can still whiff-cancel into this.

The overdrive version of Spring Raid launches the opponent higher than usual allowing for follow ups with 5C, 6C, or 5D

Outside of causing Guard Crush, it's rarely used by Noel because there are not many places to fit it in effectively. In combos, the charged variation is also rare outside of 5K confirms off of CH 5C on crouching and CH 6C (both in corner). For the most part it's better to save your meter for more important things. It can occasionally be used as a method of exiting drive pressure without being at frame disadvantage or using d.6C.

  • Used instead of Noels's normal forward dash whenever you input 66 during moves that allow dash cancels.
  • Only possible after 22C on hit or 236A/B on hit, block, or whiff.

An important part of Noel's pressure and combos, allowing various moves to be followed up. However, be aware that this is not like a regular dash. Noel will run for a fixed duration during which she can be counterhit and is unable to do anything until the end of the dash, meaning there are instances where using this mindlessly during pressure will get you severely punished.

Noel "fires her gun", creating an explosion a set distance away from her. 236A hits about half a screen away, missing behind normal-size characters at round start distance 236B hits at basically the maximum distance both characters can be from each other.

Both versions are dash cancellable on hit, block or whiff at the same time, but the B version hits slightly later. Earliest possible dash cancel from 236A is -1 on block, allowing 2A to at worst trade against characters whose fastest buttons to hit crouching characters are 7-frame startup.

Neither version of Optic Barrel causes a knockdown on a ground hit, nor do they have enough hitstun to start a combo. The goal is to hit them in the air, which will cause a knockdown.

  • Causes a launch effect similar to Noel's 6A on hit

Combos off of 5C and 2C for a basic knockdown. Noel's best choice for midscreen short confirms in which going into drive conversions into Bloom Trigger isn't an option. Chamber Shot serves as Noel's secondary combo ender and also as a combo extender for corner confirms which is typically followed up with 5B or a dashing 2A. You can also use Chamber Shot as a poke gesture in neutral and a somewhat unconventionally situational anti air if spaced and timed right against some IAD jump ins as it does have a sizable hitbox.

Noel's air ender to end air combos. Essential to Noel's corner combos (i.e. d.5B > d.2D) to increase overall combo damage. Midscreen it isn't that great of an ender as the opponent is able to just roll out after due to recovery and spacing after the follow up attack j.2C. Due to this its mainly just used in corner combos. Noel's air ender to end air combos. Can also be used to create a big hitbox around her during it's animation to potentially hit incoming opponents who approach her by Tiger Kneeing its input close to the ground. The multiple hits can also be used situationally to clash kill multihit projectiles.

22B

  • Hold B for more shots

22B is used as a combo extender in some cases. Is also used as a combo ender to set up Noel's 22B oki, since it gives a hard knockdown. Can be chained into the C version by hitting C while holding down B, which is useful when a faster startup or different timing is required in a combo.

Can be held as long as shots keep hitting, but Noel will continue to be pushed back until it starts whiffing, and the move can no longer be extended after a total of 5 shots fail to hit. Scales damage with every hit, so unless using it as an ender there is little reason to let it go that long anyway.

Noel rams her gun forward, sprays a stream of bullets while gradually aiming upwards and, if the initial gun ram hit, finishes off with a final shot with big damage. Comes out extremely quickly overall.

Noel's main reversal super. It's extremely fast and the guardpoint is negligible as the hitstop is one-sided— opponents can rarely RC it, let alone jump upback. It's more reliable than CA or 4D, but is punishable on block.

Fenrir is also used to tack on damage at the end of combos, Ideally you want to to have the gun ram of the move to hit as it adds way more damage but sometimes, if you really need to squeeze out that extra bit, you can use it fullscreen for the bullets.

Noel Pauses in midair, fires a stream of bullets from both pistols diagonally downwards before launching a rocket.

Overall, Thor is a super that is normally used to either stack a lot of damage upfront for a strong 4- 5k combo (mostly in corners), midscreen counter hit OD combos that use OD Thor for up to 5K, or to tack on damage to close out a round. It is also sometimes used to counter anti air attempts in some situations but is risky depending on the opponent's character. You can combo Thor into Fenrir as a double super ender for corner combos.

Damage GuardHow this attack can be guarded. Throws have their throw range listed instead. StartupHow many frames the attack needs to go through in order to reach its active frames. The listed startup frame coincides with the move's first active frame. ActiveHow many frames where there is a hitbox that can hit an opponent. The first active frame occurs on the listed startup frame. RecoveryHow many frames that the character must go through after an attack's active frames to automatically go back to a neutral stance, or the total duration of the move if it has no hitbox/creates projectiles. Frame AdvHow many frames the attacker's recovery ends before the defender's blockstun ends if the attack is blocked. A positive value indicates that the attacker recovers first, while a negative value indicates that the defender recovers first. This value usually assumes that the attack's first active frame (of each hit, if multi-hit) is blocked. On ODRThe difference between the attacker's total animation length and the period the opponent is in overdrive raid. This frame advantage is based off the assumption that both players input during the hitstop of a prior move, so that this attack and ODR start on the same frame. AttributeSome attacks are invulnerable to attacks with specific attributes. This notes what attributes each attack possesses.

Counter Astral. Somewhat awkward input to use on reaction to anything but very obvious attacks, so you'll be using this to call out attacks in advance, particularly reversals, if you want to use this at all. Be aware that, unlike Hakumen's Astral, this won't actually catch anything in the first 7 frames, since the attack will just pass through the normal invulnerability, making it a poor choice to use on wakeup against meaty attacks. Any move that's still active past those 7 frames will still trigger the astral and the guard point has a surprisingly long duration that can catch some punishes but don't expect miracles.

Classic Noel Only: Noel's astral has full invul, so it can be used as a reversal, however it completely disables her collision box. This means certain moves (Invulnerable moves with forward momentum) will pass right through her over to the other side, thus making the actual Astral whiff. In most cases, if you're attempting to use this as a reversal, you're more likely to catch with her counter astral although this option is safer. No longer links of juggle 6C. Can juggle off d.6C but standing hit d.6C may cause the opponent to pass through your character and whiff. Guaranteed off first hit of throw, juggle d.5B in corner. Very limited combo options off mid-screen.
