From Dustloop Wiki


A descendant of certain ancient bloodline that inherits Foxflame, which they can control through their unique dance. Yuel is a DLC character available in Season Pass 2. She is a close-range rushdown specialist who can pressure her opponent using her Third Dance stance, which allows her to aggress with multiple advantageous and rewarding normals while automatically countering any mid attacks from the opponent. Although she lacks consistent high damage and long-range tools, good reads will allow the player to reset pressure repeatedly and prance around the opponent in ways that no other characters are capable of.

Unique Movement Options
Step Dash (during Third Dance)

 Yuel is a mobile, hybrid midrange rushdown character who controls space and applies pressure through the creative use of her normals and stance.

  • Excellent Movement: Yuel sports great walkspeed, dash speed, and multiple unique movement options such as her Hanaarashi backstep and her j.U, allowing her to remain evasive and close the distance on the opponent in unique ways.
  • Oppressive Pressure: Yuel sports strong offensive specials such as Foxflame, and can transition into and out of her Third Dance stance in order to maintain pressure on the opponent with numerous advantageous moves.
  • Great Neutral Game: With f.M, 2M, L Starlit Sky, Yuel boasts a number of safe, forward moving attacks that can be used to poke or whiff punish the opponent very easily from mid-range.
  • Low Damage: Yuel has only one consistent corner combo starter is H Starlit Sky which leads to relatively mediocre damage in the corner. In general, her damage from most connects is below average.
  • Struggles at Range: Yuel is strongest at mid to close range, so she can potentially struggle against characters who can keep her at bay with strong heavy pokes or projectiles.

Normal Moves

Pretty standard c.L. Used for pressure and tick throws. Has multiple strong linking options as well.

  • Does not hit on both sides of Yuel.
  • Has a very far activation range, which can be advantageous but can occasionally be a detriment when you want f.M instead.

Despite being -2 on block rather than 0 like most c.Ms, has some use in pressure due to it's somewhat absurd activation range. Links naturally from c.L and 2L as well.

  • 3-hit normal. All hits are cancelable into autocombo or specials.
  • Like c.M, also has a somewhat far and strange activation range.

Yuel's c.H does a bit less damage than average but is pretty strong for pressure due to its speed and high hitstun. It is the only way to frametrap into H Foxflame and the only way to combo into H Foxflame on a grounded opponent, though they must be crouching. The speed and far activation range make it pretty strong in punish situations where some characters can only use medium or even only light normals.

A bit stubby, but it's a plus on block, and a standing low. Excellent for pressure and safely buffers into her L Starlit Sky. Can also notably link into 2M on counter hit or f.M on crouching counter hit.

500, 200 All 9 3, 1 21 -7 -3

This is an amazing button and easily a candidate for one of the best f.Ms in the game.

  • 9 Frames on startup, Generally very unsafe if not canceled, but can be made safe by doing 236L.
  • It's 2 hits, with both hits being cancelable, making it very easy to hit confirm into options such as M Starry Sky, or either of her Skybound Arts.
  • It moves Yuel pretty far forward, making it excellent for whiff punishing.
  • Generally unreliable as a poking tool as it leaves you minus on block in your opponent's face, and punishable if uncancelled.

As of version 2.40, this button no longer puts opponents in proximity block, meaning it is easier for opponents to walk out of its range and whiff punish poorly spaced f.Ms.

1000 All 10 6 19 -8 -4

A somewhat strange normal, but not entirely without purpose. Yuel sticks out a very active, heavy priority hitbox, so it is decent as an anticipatory counterpoke to stuff weaker normals or forward movement. Can kind of be used as an AA but the hitbox got lowered and it is now not as useful for that. Combined with how far forward f5m reaches it can be tough to be ready to whiff punish this button.

Surprisingly, Yuel's hurtbox doesn't get retracted much during this, only her head hurtbox lowers ever so slightly.

400 Low 6 3 6 +2 +6

Standard Granblue 2L. Has all of the same linking options and similar frame data to c.L, but hits low and has more range. 2L > f.L is generally a good string for a basic frametrap or punish starter.

Level Attribute

700 All 7 3 15 -3 +1
  • Frame traps from f.L and even combos on counter hit.

The crouching complement to f.M. While it doesn't sport some of that normal's better qualities, its speed and deceptive range make it strong for neutral and punishing in its own right. Good to use as a supplement if people are trying to hit you out of f.M with crouching buttons.

Level Attribute

500×2 All 11 3, 3 24 -10 -6

Good hitbox even though the animation can look strange. Since its 2 hits, the counter hit property does not transfer from hit 1 to hit 2. Counter hit combos need the first hit to be cancelled. For example via 5U into Yugetsu. Regardless, non-counterhit 2H (both hits) combos into 22H. This means Yuel does not need a counterhit to do a damaging anti air combo.

Yuel's biggest air normal in terms of the X axis, making it her go-to air-to-air normal. Since it's Yuel's only non multi hit aerial it's the only one with a chance of comboing on counter hit off an air to air.

  • Recovery frame count starts when Yuel touches the ground.

MOSTLY safe and plus on hit. Sometimes the very last hit can miss due to spacing making her punishable. Anti-air bait that beats regularly timed 2Hs but not DPs. Does not knock down, but is safe on block and plus on hit.

Stance changes all of Yuel's normals and movement options. She retains access to her throws, though they perform an auto-dash before performing the throw (see Throw section).

  • If struck while in stance, Yuel does an automatic counter (Eye of the Sparrow).
    • Counters all mid attacks including strike based SSBAs.
    • Loses to projectiles despite projectiles being classified as mids.
    • Loses to lows, overheads, and throws.
  • Yuel cannot block or Cross Over during stance, but can perform Evade.
  • Pressing guard while in stance will cause Yuel to dodge regardless of directional input.
  • Yuel cannot walk forwards nor backwards during stance.
  • Yuel cannot run during stance. Run and backdash are replaced with a unique forward and backwards hop.

Beats standard reversals such as DP Dragon Punch A move that has invulnerability during its startup, long recovery, and a rising motion.s and strike-supers, but will not protect against projectile based supers such as  Gran's Catastrophe. This can be used to encourage enemies to mash low attacks and allow you to structure frame traps with her stance buttons.

  • After any attack, Yuel will remain in Third Dance unless you press U during them.

td.5L is a clash level above normal, so it will crush every jab except Vaseraga's, making td.5L > td.5L a universal, true frame trap. It can be cancelled into itself, td.2L and td.2M.

td.2L is great after 2M to catch someone off guard, but generally, pressing td.2L means you will be hit out of stance. With a -3 frame data, a blocking opponent pressing 2L will hit Yuel after td.2L. Use with caution. Combos into c.L and td.5L on counter hit. It has extremely high priority and will crush level 2 normals.

td.5M forces crouch on hit and crushes throws. It does not crush lows, but lifts Yuel's hurtbox above the ground during its startup frames, so it will go over lows if timed properly. On block, it leaves a 10 frame gap if cancelled into from td.5L. Combos into Yugetsu on counter hit, but it also combos into c5H if you leave stance. Also combos into f5m on crouching counter hit.

td.2M can recover quickly enough to parry wakeup reversals if it's meaty enough. Useful for pressure as it's +2 even if you cancel stance from it. Converts into Yugetsu on counter hit

  • Good option after canceling into stance from Hanaarashi's backstep if your opponent is blocking or attempting to chase you down.
  • Can be very plus on block and on hit if well spaced. Yuel will automatically exit stance afterwards, allowing you to pick up a combo on a well-spaced hit.

Standard throw. Third Dance version performs an automatic stance hop forward before performing the throw, making sure you're always close to the opponent first. This increases the startup significantly, however.

  • Forward throw allows for a DP-safe meaty low in the corner: LM~U > td.5M (whiff) > td.2M
  • Alternatively, you can set up a safejump with microwalk jump j.H
  • You can press 5U during the throw animation and enter/leave stance.

  • Pressing U will transition Yuel into Third Dance during recovery.

An advancing special that trades priority and velocity for safety. Due to 236L's and 236H's extremely quick startups, they won't leave a gap when cancelled into from M or H normals on block unless they are delay cancelled and spaced at the tip of f5m.

L Version
  • Fast startup and safe on block.
  • Since M knocks down on hit, people might get counterhit after 236L on hit as they tried to tech.

L Starlit Sky is a safe way to transition into stance offense, as Yuel is +1 on hit.

M Version
  • Slow startup and unsafe on block.
  • Soft knockdown

236M frame traps from almost any normal, but is easily punishable on block.

H Version
  • Best of both worlds.
  • Wallbounces in the corner.

  • Pressing U will transition Yuel into Third Dance during landing

Yuel's invincible reversal. Its multiple hits make it shine in certain situations such as against Vaseraga's Soul Forge, but it has a tendency to whiff against deep jump-ins.

  • Go-to reversal due to speed and not costing resources.

623L is the least damaging version and gives the worst okizeme on hit. However, due to its low cost and quick startup, you'll see it frequently used as a reversal.

  • Better as a combo ender than a reversal.

623M is slower and more damaging. Useful as a combo ender as it does more damage and gives better okizeme than 236M, in exchange for less corner carry. You'll however rarely see this as a reversal.

  • Invincible reversal.
  • Builds a ton of meter on hit.
  • Hard knockdown on hit.

623H is the most damaging version and gives the best okizeme, giving Yuel enough time to dash up and do a crossup j.H safejump. Sometimes used as a combo ender and sometimes as a reversal.

  • The lunge forward can be cancelling by pressing 5U, Yuel will instead enter her stance.

  • The M and H~M versions can be made safe if spaced

Flipping back can be used to create space and let Yuel reset to neutral after an approach Yuel can 214L after a 236L on block and the opponent can't hit her out of it. Forcing the opponent to run up and challenge with a low on a read, which in turn loses to her flipping forward.

214L and 214M are invulnerable on frame 3, and 214H is invulnerable on frame 1. Don't abuse these moves too much, however, as the followups can be easily caught with long pokes, or blown through with DPs or SBAs.

  • Pressing U will transition Yuel to Third Dance during the recovery.

Lots of active frames, making it good as a meaty against characters without meterless reversals.

L Version

22L will frame trap from full autocombo, but it's only +5 on counter hit and will put you just outside of c.L's activation range, meaning your reward for hitting it on a standing opponent is minimal, and you'll lose your turn if it's blocked. It also frame traps from 2H(1), which does leave you close enough for a c.L combo, but only at point blank range.

M Version

22M is the slowest but most advantageous version. It will never frame trap, but because Yuel moves forward during its startup, it can be used as a disrespectful pressure extension once your opponent starts respecting your actual frame traps. If your opponent somehow gets hit by this, you can follow up with a c.H combo.

H Version

22H frame traps from c.H and grants a c.H combo on CH. If your opponent doesn't mash, you can continue pressure due to it being advantageous on block. In addition, it will always combo from an air hit of 2H, making it useful for anti-air combos and certain punishes.
