Lancelot is a rushdown character who pressures the opponent with rekkasA series of special attacks that are only available after the first one is performed. of variable timing and a very advantageous projectile. In conjunction with his teleports, command dash, and unique walljump, Lancelot has the tools he needs to get into and stay in a range where he can continuously mix up the opponent.

 Lancelot is a tricky character whose speed and various mixup tools can overwhelm opponents at close range.

  • Good Mobility: Between his Turbulenz teleports, Wirbelwind command dashes, and his Delta Leap walljumps, Lancelot's mobility is near unparalleled.
  • Versatile Sweep: 2U is a great forward-moving attack that can low profile under various normals and projectiles for an easy punish. It also gives hard knockdown on hit, and can even be made safe on block if spaced properly.
  • Strong Okizeme: Wogenstrom is a projectile that is very plus on block, enabling a variety of pressure and mixups when used as a meaty after a knockdown.
  • Strong Pressure: The Southern Cross series and their followups move Lancelot forward, can be delayed to create frame traps, and can even be spaced to be even or plus on block. Using them in conjunction with Turbulenz allows Lancelot to repeatedly reset pressure or land throws once the opponent has been conditioned to block.
  • Short Range: Lancelot can struggle in neutral against characters who have longer normals and faster projectiles.
  • Low Damage: Having low average combo damage and lower than average Skybound Art damage forces Lancelot to be on the offensive as much as possible, as he is unlikely to close out rounds off regular conversions unless he scores a big anti-air 2H or Turbulenz counterhit.
  • Nontraditional Meterless Reversal: H Turbulenz is not a DP Dragon Punch A move that has invulnerability during its startup, long recovery, and a rising motion.-style reversal that attacks while rising, which limits anti-air options and makes escaping pressure more risky.

  • Can transition into auto combo on contact at any range.

Lancelot's 5L does not change based on proximity. However, having no far variation means it will have very poor range in any situation. As his fastest grounded normal and +2 on block, it's used for a variety of things including starting close-range pressure, mashing through pressure gaps on defense, tick throws, and as a reversal-safe meaty after a knockdown.

  • Combos into 5L on crouching.
  • Combos into c.H on counterhit.

This is your go-to move in pressure alongside 2L and 5L. Your main pressure string out of this normal is c.M > 5L > f.M, which leaves you at the perfect distance for 214L to be plus on block afterwards. Point blank, 2L > c.M is both a frametrap and a confirm. It can sometimes be used as a last-minute anti-air, but it's far worse than 2H in terms of hurtboxes.

Level Attribute

600, 400 Mid 7 3(3)3 18 -2 +2

Two-hit attack, primarily used for punishing or combos. Being two hits gives you a lot of time to confirm stuff from it. The downside of it being two hits is that if the first hit is a counterhit, the property is not carried over to the second. As an example, CH c.H(1) > 236H combos but CH c.H(2) > 236H does not.

Not a lot of range and will easily get outpoked by other characters' f.M, but the recovery isn't too bad and doesn't extend Lancelot's hurtbox that much. Primarily used in conjunction with 214L to pressure from midrange. If spaced at max range, cancelling into 214L leaves Lancelot plus afterwards.

Lancelot pokes out both his daggers as far as he can. His farthest reaching poke. Decent range considering his other normals. Combos into 66L at almost any range, making it a decent buffer when you're trying to stuff someone's poke. Alternatively, you can cancel into 214M which combos on counterhit and can be 0 on block if it's spaced far enough.

Lancelot's fastest low. Like most 2Ls, plus on block and extremely important for pressure and mixup. It's always useful as a way to catch people trying to Cross-Over out of your pressure. 2L can actually be used 3 times in a blockstring if you're close, but doing so leaves you out of range of 2M and sometimes out of f.M range as well.

Lancelot slashes low but don't be fooled, it's a mid. 2M functions as a proximity-independent counterpart to other characters' f.Ls, as Lancelot does not have the latter. It has shorter range than f.M, but has faster startup and better frame advantage while also catching Cross-Overs. It links from 5L and 2L, allowing for combos like 5L/2L > 5L/2L > 2M > 214L. The startup is quick enough to punish moves like Djeeta's 214LGBVS Djeeta 214L.pngGuardMidStartup14Recovery20Advantage-6 and Gran's 214LGBVS Gran 214L.pngGuardMidStartup13Recovery17Advantage-5 on block, and can even hit Charlotta on her way down after blocking her H DPGBVS Charlotta 28X.pngGuardMidStartup11Recovery23Advantage-7~-9, allowing a decent punish combo.

Lancelot's designated anti-air attack. It's pretty fast, and has a good hitbox that beats cross-ups easily. Very important move. If it hits anti-air, you'll want to cancel into 214L. On counterhit and a whiffed 214L, you can confirm a c.M/c.H and get a very high damage combo, and on non-counterhit you can confirm into 214L~4L for a little more damage and a knockdown.

The Vega slide. Really really good move, hard knockdown sliding low that's safe at far spacing and very unsafe otherwise. Low profiles really well too, going under both projectiles like Gran's Reginleiv and some far-reaching pokes like Katalina's f.M. Gives you a safe jump on hit, but the safe jump is spacing dependent.

Lancelot slashes beneath him. Contrasting j.L, this attack has shorter horizontal range in exchange for being his only air normal that can be used to cross-up the opponent. It's primarily used in safe jumps after a 22X/5~2/8U cross-up teleport or low walljump, and loses in the air against other aerial attacks.

400×2 High/Air 10 3(3)6 Until L

A 2-hit falling overhead. This move is really good. Varying your timing makes the opponent guess if both strikes will hit overhead or if you'll land after one overhead and do a low 2L. On hit, combos into 2L even if only one hit lands. The hitbox is poor directly beneath Lancelot so if he's even a pixel distance to cross up someone it will whiff.

The good horizontal hitbox also makes this move decent at stuffing people air-to-air, but it's slower than j.L and because it's two hits you won't get a combo if you counter them.

Unique Actions

Delta Leap

9 or 6 while midair and touching the wall

Lancelot's unique walldive. Can only be done from the actual stage walls, not the edges of midscreen. 9 will have him jump away from the wall in an upwards arc and 6 will have him dive diagonally towards the ground without any arc. You can act immediately out of this, which includes all air normals and even j.U, making this both a mixup and an escape tool.

j.U Until L+7

Performs a dashing maneuver that can be canceled on the ground into various followups. The dash covers a pretty good distance but has a lot of recovery, even when you quick stop.

Air Version

Fastfalls diagonally towards the ground. Lancelot cannot act until he reaches the ground and also has some landing recovery. A versatile movement tool with many applications that increase after a hard knockdown or when 236H is forcing the opponent to block, including baiting anti-airs and reversals. Altering the fastfall timing during a jump makes which side he lands on extremely ambiguous.

Quick Stop

Used to bait whiffs in neutral when well-spaced, but the recovery can prevent you from getting a proper punish. Also used in some anti-air combo routes.

Cross Over

Can cross through opponents, but its recovery and the presence of the Guard button doesn't make it a strong mixup just by itself.


Also used to bait moves in neutral, with less risk than quick stop. Using this to bait forward-moving reversals can reward you with a huge punish.


Same as the teleport from 22L/M. Used in safe jumps after forward throw or 66H knockdown. The diagonal angle makes it possible to force many wakeup DPs to whiff after a midscreen knockdown, at the risk of losing to regular anti-airs.

Ground Throw

1500 Throw 7 3 31 HKD
  • Forward Throw:
    • Advantage on hit: +34

Lancelot's forward throw leaves him point blank and at enough advantage to set up a 236X for pressure afterwards. Any DP will punish 236L, but 236H is safe against reversals with startups longer than 9f. The hard knockdown allows for all shades of setups, not just limited to 236X, but that's by far the easiest.

  • Back Throw:
    • Advantage on hit:

Lancelot's back throw sends the opponent half screen, which is too far for 236X to work as a meaty.

  • Sets up a hard knockdown not too far in front of Lancelot.

Lancelot's airthrow is similar to his forward throw in that you get a 236X setup for continued pressure.

If your reactions are on point, you can catch people jumping out of your rekka pressure with this. Just be warned you cannot do anything else until you land if it whiffs, so if you mess up your read you're going to get punished.

Fires a projectile that travels across the stage. Very advantageous on contact and very important for his okizeme game. This skill has slow startup but fast recovery, so Lancelot can move and go on the offensive while the projectile is still onscreen. Keep in mind that in a neutral fireball fight you're likely to get hit out of the startup. Comboing into this from CH c.H(1) is possible and adds a good chunk of damage if you use 236H as it has enough hitstun for you to jump and land a j.H.

L Fireball
  • Faster startup but also fast travel time.
  • Travels fullscreen.

M Fireball
  • Slower startup but also much slower travel time.
  • Travels fullscreen.

Very good to cover your approach because of how slow it travels.

H Fireball
  • Hits 3 times.
  • Only travels 3/4 of the screen.
  • Hard knockdown on air hit.

Hits 3 times on both hit and block, making easy to confirm on hit and incredibly plus on block. If the opponent is caught blocking the projectile in the air, they can be hit with any other grounded move since mids are air-unblockable.

A sliding lunge attack. Depending on distance you're very likely to cross through the opponent on both hit and block. If spaced correctly every version can be safe on block.

L Stab
  • Travels about half screen.

When used as a combo ender midscreen, it not only switches sides but the opponent recovers point blank so further pressure can be applied. Also used in high damage anti-air combos as it can be linked off of if it hits high enough.

M Stab
  • Travels about 3/4ths screen.

Safe on block from most ranges and plus at the tip like 66H, albeit with much slower startup. Can be used to close the distance in neutral, as an anti-air/reversal punish combo tool, and as a niche meaty on far hard knockdowns or throws in the corner. If it counterhits at tip range, you can link into 5L for a brief combo extension off the mini-launch.

H Stab
  • Travels the same distance as 66M.

Launches the opponent straight up on hit, allowing further combos on both far-spaced hits and in the corner where you remain close enough to link into c.H afterwards. Midscreen, it gives a hard knockdown and usually gives 236H oki or 5U~8U safe jump setups afterwards. If it hits at the very tip of its range, it leaves you plus on block as opposed to just safe.

  • Technical inputs only require 214X for the first attack, while 4X is used for the follow-ups.

Multi-part advancing slash attacks, colloquially known as "rekka A series of special attacks that are only available after the first one is performed.s".

The initial attack and first follow-ups are safe on block, allowing Lancelot to reset his pressure after conditioning the opponent with the frametrap properties of delayed follow-ups. Additionally, the initial attacks themselves can be spaced to be even or plus on block the further out they make contact. If they hit at the absolute max range, both 214L and 214M can be +1 on block.

The ender attacks are very unsafe on block but have a small gap from the previous parts, which makes them a last-chance frametrap to catch opponents attempting to take their turn back by mashing after blocking the minus-but-safe follow-ups.

Using a sequence like c.M, 5L, f.M > 214L to condition an opponent to block can open them up for further pressure, or a throw.

214L being +1 on hit allows Lancelot to attempt a crush reset with c.M against opponents pressing 5L. Against characters whose fastest normal is 6 frames, c.HGBVS Lancelot cH1.pngGuardMidStartup7Recovery18Advantage-2 can be used instead.

  • Can hit up to 3 times.

Staple combo ender after hitting c.H or auto comboGBVS Lancelot cXXX.pngGuardMidStartup12Recovery18Advantage-4 at midscreen for damage and corner carry. The increased startup makes it a frame trap out of auto combo and most normals, but this gap is vulnerable to reversals. Since 214M travels farther than 214L, successfully getting an opponent to block it when pushed out of 214L range maintains Lancelot's frame advantage.

  • Can hit up to 5 times.

Because 214X is a critical part of Lancelot's pressure and combos, putting the special on cooldown this way should be used sparingly but still results in a hard knockdown and a safe jump anywhere on screen. Delaying the follow-ups can be used to secure rounds against very low health opponents via chip damage, but this results in gaps that are vulnerable to reversals.

Lancelot teleports into the air. The horizontal distance depends on the button strength used. All versions can be held which will make Lancelot followup with a overhead plunging attack which is invincible on the way down, but extremely unsafe on block. On counter hit the opponent will bounce, allowing a high damage combo afterwards. It's often very risky to go for the full plunge because of the very slow startup. Doing just the teleport portion allows Lancelot to either do a falling air normal or fastfall to the ground with j.U, but either option leaves him vulnerable to anti-airs, including air throw.

  • Airborne on frame 4.
  • 1X is not a valid input for this move, and will cause Southern Cross to be used instead.

  • Teleports about the distance of Lancelot's backdash.
  • Unlikely to cross-up unless performed point-blank.

  • Teleports about the distance of two of Lancelot's backdashes.
  • More likely to crossup due to the distance it travels.

  • Teleports farther than the other versions, but can not cross up.

H teleport is the only invulnerable reversal Lancelot has other than his Skybound Arts.

A powerful diving attack with invincible startup.

Ground version automatically locks onto the opponent's position with no additional input, but can be manually angled by holding L (sharp angle, short range), M (shallow angle, far range), or H (shallow angle, full screen range) during startup.

  • Lancelot is only invincible during the startup when he jumps up to the wall so on the way down he can run into DPs, armored moves, and projectiles, making this a situationally worse reversal compared to 236236H.
  • There is a blind spot where the move can whiff when Lancelot is cornered, but intentionally whiffing 236236U~[H] can be a risky way to escape the corner.
  • Because of the time it takes for Lancelot to travel to the wall and back to the opponent, the opponent may tech out before it hits in some midscreen juggle combo situations when Lancelot's back is too far away from the wall. In this case, either use 236236H or save your meter.

Air version dives from Lancelot's current position at a sharp angle, similar to a grounded 236236U~[L]. Does not track and cannot be manually aimed like the ground version.

  • Can be used as a hard callout to crush anti-air attempts, but is even more unsafe than the ground version.
