Overview

Overview

Izayoi is a rushdown character with unique movement options, threatening high/low mixups, and one of the best safejumps in the game. Coupled with the right assists, Izayoi has the ability to play with momentum and suffocate the opponent with her aggression.
Playstyle
Izayoi
Pros Cons
  • Strong mobility thanks to GA dash and teleports
  • Decent projectiles
  • Strong mixup game (IOH 66j.A/B, fuzzy guard setups with j.C, etc)
  • Reliable oki/setplay off of any hit
  • Solid 1-meter punish routes
  • Lackluster footsie game as her best poke, 5B, does its job but is outclassed by a number of other characters
  • Meter hungry
  • DP has no horizontal reach
  • Meterless damage is mediocre
  • Anti-air game is limited
  • Requires good assists to keep pressure

Drive: Scarlet Justice

Izayoi’s forward air dash is different from most of the cast’s forward air dash. Instead of dashing straight, she does a dash low to the ground, allowing her to follow it up with an air normal. It is also possible to do the dash from the ground by pressing 66. It allows you to use it as an aggression tool to keep the pressure going as well as potentially mix them up during a blockstring, consisting of IAD j.A, j.C Fuzzy overhead, etc. The dash can also be held longer by holding 6, allowing you to close in from farther distances as well. In addition to that, you can change the angle of her dash by holding 9 or 3.

You can also cancel many of her special attacks into Mirage Thurster (teleports) to continue combos or to quickly sandwich your opponent with your partner.

Normal Moves

4A

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block Attribute Invuln
1000 All 6 3 9 0 B
  • Whiffs on all crouching hitboxes (except Tager, Hakumen, and Waldstein)
  • Jump cancelable on block
  • Izayoi's fastest normal, use this for mashing/tickthrows.

You can use this move as a situational anti air against IAD height approaches but outside of that, doesn’t see much use.

5AAA 1700 All 14 5 28 -14 B
5AAAA 2300 All 15 3 30 -14 B
  • Main normal to start pressure
  • Jump cancelable on block

5A is your main tool to start combos/block pressure up close. A common mixup option involving 5A is 5A>IAD j.A, a 26f Overhead option that lets you extend pressure solo if the opponent respects you and possibly open up the opponent. j.A will whiff if they push 5A


  • Combo filler

5AA is combo filler primarily. Can be used in blockstrings but you’d be better off doing 5A>2A>5A...


  • Combo filler
  • Unsafe on block/pushblock

5AAA is mainly used as combo filler. It has really long recovery, making this move dangerous to throw out on block/pushblock


  • 5A autocombo ender
  • VERY unsafe on block

5AAAA is your auto combo ender and can lead into Cross Raid. It knocks the opponent away fullscreen. Punishable on block.

  • Your best poke option
  • Can be low profiled at the tip

5B is Izayoi’s best poke, use this when playing footsies. A little slower than most 5Bs in the game, being an 11f poke. 5B has an extended hurtbox on her sword, so be careful when trying to poke with it. Can be low profiled at the tip of her sword.


  • Combo filler
  • Pretty long recovery on whiff

5BB is combo filler. Whiff punishable if they pushblock 5B.

  • Can gatling into itself up to a max of 3 times
  • Main low starter/low mixup option

Use in stagger pressure with 5A>2A>5A>etc. and as a mixup using j.B (whiff) > 2A.

  • Combo filler

  • Go to punish tool after blocking DP/Supers since it hits twice

Not a low. Mainly used for combo filler. Unsafe against pushblock, making it a fairly weak tool for solo pressure. When utilizing assists however, it’s a solid tool for left/right mixups when you have the opponent sandwiched between your team. Can also be used to lock the opponent down for your partner during a blockstring via 2B+AS.

1700 Low 13 6 21 -8 F
  • Key combo filler in Izayoi’s ground confirms
  • Can low profile some attacks
  • Unsafe on block/Pushblock

This is Izayoi’s most important combo filler in her ground combos, as it allows her to stabilize longer range confirms to help 214B connect. In normal block pressure, it usually can be staggered into 236A/C or 214A, but can potentially be punished by pushblock.

j.A

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block Attribute Invuln
j.A 1300 High 9 6 15 H
j.AA 1300 High 7 3 12 H
  • Primary overhead mixup with GA dash
  • Strong jump in, especially when combined with GA dash
  • Solid Air to air
  • Other leg has a hitbox, allowing it to crossup


This move is one of Izayoi's most important normals. When combined with GA dash (66/IAD), you can use it as an overhead mixup option as well as a method to approach in neutral. It also compensates for Izayoi's rather poor anti air game as she can air to air pretty consistently with j.A due to it's solid combination of speed and range. Albeit it not very likely to happen, j.A can also crossup has her other leg has a hurtbox as well.


  • Combo filler
  • Can be used as a double overhead option after 66

j.AA is combo filler for air routes, albeit inferior to j.B in that regard. It can also be used as a double overhead option after 66 j.A depending on how high Izayoi is relative to the opponent (you'll usually need to fly a little higher by holding 9 after 99 to get it to work)

j.B

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block Attribute Invuln
1800 High 11 7 21 H
  • Can be used for setting up a fuzzy overhead j.C/low situation after 66 GA dash
  • Can used as a fakeout after GA dash
  • Combo filler for air routes

While this move doesn't see much use in neutral, it shines much more in terms of pressure and combos. When it comes to pressure, you can do 66 j.B and either jump and do rising j.C for a fuzzy overhead mixup or land and 2A. It can also be used as a fakeout after 66 (delay j.B) and IAD (do j.B immediately after), making it whiff and allowing you to do whatever you want afterwards provided they respect it. j.B is also important for many of Izayoi's air routes, especially j.ABC loops.

j.C

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block Attribute Invuln
1700 High 11 6 18 H
  • Blows back on air hit
  • Fuzzy overhead mixup after 66j.B
  • Combo filler for j.ABC loops
  • Can be used an an ender for air combos
  • Can IOH Tager and Hakumen

Another move that doesn't see much use in neutral but also shines in pressure and combos. As a mixup tool, it's one of Izayoi's best options, as it can fuzzy a majority of the cast after doing 66j.B prior and can even hit Tager and Hakumen crouching, allowing it to be used as a stronger overhead option than 66/IAD j.A in those matchups. As for combos, it sees use mostly in j.C reland loops and to maximize damage with j.C > j.21A~A.

The projectiles hang in place for a bit longer than the A version, making it more advantageous on hit or block from further away. Much harder to avoid in general, allowing you to force your opponent to block and/or eat a mixup.
