Overview

Overview

Playstyle
Mika is a high mobility pseudo-grappler. Rather than being a slowly advancing wall like Waldstein, Tager, or Kanji, Mika wants to use her speed and air movement to stick to her opponent.
Pros Cons
  • Good ground speed
  • Reversal action covers a decent chunk of vertical real estate
  • Her 2C moves her forward by a lot, making confirms at max range super easy
  • Can punish with command grabs at longer distance than other grapplers
  • 5P assist passes through opponent, allowing you to set up Cross Combo mixups easily.
  • Advanced combos have decent corner carry
  • Stubby range, especially since her 5A uses the animation of her UNIST 2A without the benefit of being a low.
  • Has the most damaging super grab in the game, but the range is extremely small, and the timing for the followup hits is somewhat strict.
  • No air command grabs like Waldstein or Tager, and lacks an anti-air grab like Kanji.

Normal Moves

5A

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block Attribute Invuln
5A 1000 All 6 4 13 -3 B
5AA 1500 All 10 3 18 -4 B
5AAA 1700 All 13 4 26 -11 B
5AAAA 2500 All 19 10* 38L [Until L+8L] -21 H
  • Although the animation is taken from Mika's 2A in UNIST, this does not hit low.
  • This is a 6 frame jab and should be used in places a jab would be used, this is not her ideal combo starter or neutral poke.
  • This move may be jump canceled on block. Only 5A and 2A can be jump canceled on block.

5A has great use in pressure has Mika due to its fast startup and ability to be jump canceled. This move is also a great defensive tool as many jabs are, however it's range is pitiful, and using it as a starter will gimp her damage rather severely making it a less than stellar button in neutral. Use but do not abuse.


  • 5AA is combo filler.

  • 5AAA brings airborne opponents to the ground. Very useful in combo extensions.

  • 5AAAA enters recovery on hit/block, or unique 8L recovery on whiff
  • If you pressed this button... Go back. You made a mistake.
  • Unlike the move this animation was taken from in UNIST, where it was a Dash attack, this does not hit overhead.

5BB 1700 All 11 6 24 -11 P1
5BBB 1700 All 13 11+2L 16 -10 H
  • A decent poke to use in neutral
  • Can cancel into 5BB on hit or whiff; 5BB's properties change if 5B was whiffed
  • Can cancel into 5BB (shot) on whiff on frame 16

  • 5BB will wallbounce if only the explosion portion connects, in which case you can cancel into 236B to continue your combo from anywhere on the screen.
  • Frame trap against a decent portion of the cast, can force mix-up situations with 214A.

  • 5BBB is treated as airborne
  • Special cancellable into j236A/B
  • Goes into final 2 active frames on whiff, followed by 16 landing recovery.

5C

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block Attribute Invuln
800+ High 26 3 18 -4 H
  • Has same hitbox as j.B, which is decently large. That's about the only notably thing about this move.

Useful as an occasional mixup, since Mika doesn't have any grounded overheads otherwise, and it's safe on block.

Level P1 P2

2A

A standard low. Can be used to tick into Mika-chan Hip Strike.

2B

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block Attribute Invuln
1700 All 11 4 22 -7 B 8~14 H
  • Anti-air move; upper body invulnerable
  • Surprisingly good hitbox on this

Use this to force the opponent to respect your airspace. This is not an easy move to challenge.

Level P1 P2
4 90 85


2C

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block Attribute Invuln
1700 Low 15 10 18 -9 F
  • Moves Mika forward a good distance

A far reaching low and useful filler in many of Mika's combos. In neutral, 2C can function as an occasional yolo option to start combos. On block, you can Reverse Beat into something less committal like 5A.

Level P1 P2
4 90 75

j.A 1500 High 7 3 23 H
j.AA 500×4 All 5 2(4)2(2)2(4)3 24 H
  • Mika's fastest air normal

Decent-ish as an air-to-air, but you don't want to go around trying to bop people out of the air with it.


  • Last hit does more hitstun

j.AA is combo fodder, mostly.

At mid-range, you can do IAD jAA > j236B as a combo starter. It's a quick overhead, and may catch some players by surprise.

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block Attribute Invuln
1500 [2200] High 14 [28] 6 29 [9] H
  • Hitbox is deceptively large, extends horizontally past Mika's fists

Kind of slow, but the fact that it's hitbox covers a big area above, in front of, and below Mika means it's her best tool when jumping in against your opponent's buttons.

Level P1 P2
3 [4] 80 80


j.C

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block Attribute Invuln
1700×2 High, All 15 Until L+4 18+11L -14 H, P1
  • Hits on the way down as well as upon landing
  • Cannot be special or super cancelled.
  • Drags the opponent to the ground on hit, making follow-ups with an assist very easy.

While the move is -14, it can be very difficult to punish if blocked as Mika will bounce backwards away from the opponent upon landing. This move is primarily used as a combo ender for meterless air confirms or as a filler with an assist.

5B+C

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block Attribute Invuln
0, 2000 Throw 7-30 3 23 T
  • Mika runs forward a short distance and performs a grab
  • Can combo afterward

Mika's run speed makes this decently strong as a mixup. If your opponent is used to you running up and hitting buttons, you can catch them off-guard with this.

  • Hits in front of and behind her
  • Leaps up nearly to the top of the screen, making this decent as an anti-air in an awkward situation

Decent as an anti-air when they're too high for 2B to reach them, but you don't really get anything off of this.

  • 236A travels straight forward
  • 236B travels upwards at an angle, Mika can act in the air after performing this
  • Passes through opponent, allowing for easy crossups with assists.

You can use 236A to advance towards the opponent, but you really don't want to. Mika's already decently speedy on the ground, meaning this is a combo tool and nothing else.

DBFZ players might be familiar with moves like 236B; after you launch yourself into the air, you can come down immediately with an air normal.


  • j.236A travels straight forward
  • j.236B travels downward at an angle

j.236A is useful as a movement tool, and has uses in combos.

Covered by an assist, j.236B allows you to approach the enemy at a somewhat unusual angle.


  • Followups can be done in any angle
  • Straight down will knock opponent down on hit

A decent way to end meterless combos, due to the knockdown.

  • Jumps forward a short distance, and will catch opponents slightly off the ground.
  • Can combo into this

Calling an assist and switching before this move connects can be a good mixup, and will give you a full combo.


  • Jumps forward a short distance, and will catch opponents slightly off the ground.
  • Can combo into this

Because of the distance she jumps forward, this can be used when you read a pushblock to get a punish.

  • Passes through opponent

Because this assist will pass through the opponent, you can activate cross combo afterward for a "free" cross combo sandwich. Just be careful not to use this assist again during the cross-combo, as she'll just pass through again. (Though if you cross-up as well you can be tricky with this)

  • Jumps up slightly before attacking
  • Between the jump and the slam, this reaches most of the way across the screen.

Because Mika jumps into the air, she can avoid many attacks during the startup. This makes this assist decent during pressure, as even if you get counterhit Mika may still get her hit in.

  • Range is bad
  • Need to get timing perfect to get max damage but is second highest damaging grab in Tag (Tager 720 being the highest)

Frame 0 grab meaning they can't do anything post flash, so if someone wants to dodge it they need to jump beforehand. Reversal grab with pitiful range use it on wakeup if they try to meaty you. Also possible to frame trap after a blocked 5BBB string.

Because Mika is so fast on the ground, sometimes you can just run up and YOLO with this.
