Overview[edit]
Overview

Amane is a slippery character that wants to keep his opponents on their toes while he dances around them with his command jumps and fullscreen normals. These neutral tools give him the ability to control the pace of the game. Amane's Drive backs up his range and mobility with the best chip damage in the game. It also deals massive damage to the Barrier gauge. Amane also has a unique gauge called Spiral that fills up as he uses Drive attacks and certain specials. As it builds, Amane's drives deal increasing damage both on hit and and on block. Players need to be careful, however, because the Spiral gauge can overheat and temporarily disable his Drive attacks and D specials. Amane lacks mixups, so if his Drive gauge is disabled he loses some of his best offensive tools. Amane rewards players with strong neutral and good strategy.


Lore:Amane is a young man in a pink kimono seeking to add members to his troupe. After the events of Chrono Phantasma, he has also taken on Rachel's role as an Onlooker and seeks to save the world without killing Noel.
Playstyle
BBCF Amane Nishiki Icon.png Amane Nishiki is an evasive zoner that uses his command jumps and full screen normals to control space and lock down movement. His Drive makes up for his lack of mixups with its high chip damage and barrier drain.
Pros Cons
  • Strong neutral game
  • Great range with C and D normals
  • Strong and diverse pressure with normals, Zettou, and Ginga
  • Unpredictable air mobility with Zettou hops and j.2B
  • Strong antiairs e.g 6A, 5C, and 6C
  • Amazing chip damage and barrier draining on Level 3 Drill
  • Fabulous
  • Below-average health
  • Long-range moves have huge recoveries on whiff
  • Slow run speed in spite of various movement options
  • Lack of mixup options. Only overhead is j.A
  • Lack of meterless defensive options
Drive: Spiral
Amane's Drive attacks turn his cloth into a drill he uses to attack his opponent. Using Drive attacks will fill the Spiral Gauge for up to three levels. Different levels of Spiral Gauge grant different properties to Amane's Drive Attacks. Here are some of the specifics:
  • There are a total of 3 levels of Spiral Gauge. Gauge increases upon using D attacks and decreases over time. Drill attacks last longer and do more damage with higher level. Gauge builds even on whiffed D attacks.
  • Drill can overheat if charged for too long. When overheated, D moves and D specials cannot be used.
  • Each attack will deal more hits if the button is held down, with each hit contributing to the Spiral Gauge. Can stop holding moves at any time.
  • Level 3 D moves do a very high amount of chip damage on block.
Overdrive: Cyclone
His Overdrive powers up his drill, making it much easier to get to level 3 and prevent overheat.
  • Spiral Gauge continues to rapidly rise to level 3 and then stops. (Does not immediately become level 3 on activation).
  • Amane's Distortion Drives become enhanced, gaining extra hits and dealing more damage.
  • 6D does more hits, but gains drill gauge slower, allowing it to deal more damage for longer without overheating the drill.

5D can be used to create distance when used midscreen. It also does good corner pressure considering frame advantage + placement. Will lead to a standing reset when used as a combo. Either Command dash in, try to hit them with a Hariken (they can jump out of this one if not counter hit) or prevent their movement with C moves.

[edit]

  • Head attribute invul from 12F until the end of active frames
  • Add more hits by holding button

Due to slow startup, head invulnerability that kicks in way to late, no ability to cancel into anything when blocked but RC and non beneficial frame advantage, 2D should not be your go to anti air. However, it can be very beneficial in matchups against characters who stall in the air or alter their trajectory, because of the ability to hold to be held. Ultimately, It sees most use in combos.

  • Add more hits by holding button.
  • Holding button also makes drill travel short distance across the ground. Even if it catches them towards the end of its movement, it will still do the full number of hits on impact.
  • Lv1: 10% chip damage (25*N). Lv2: 30% chip damage (75*N). Lv3: 50% chip damage (125*N)
  • Lv3: 5% minimum damage (12*N).
  • Lv1, Lv2: Adds 200 (100*3, 200*N in OD) gauge per hit or attack on whiff.
  • Lv3: Adds 200 (70 in OD) gauge per hit or attack on whiff.

Your best way to raise your drill level. Very few ways to combo into it. Hariken drill from Counter Hit 5D, Gosei RC or Seijyuu RC is the only reliable way to do it. Instead, use this as okizeme after Ginga and Gosei, or as a reset in block strings and combos. Even if it's blocked, you're guaranteed level 3 drill. Don't be too predictable, however, as opponents can roll/delay tech out of it on wakeup and jump out in blockstrings, leaving you in a great deal of recovery. Many characters also have good tools for escaping 6D, like Azrael's Growler, Naoto's Divine Smasher, or the Murakumos' backdashes

[edit]

  • Add more hits by holding button

This move is godlike as you can jump then do it right away and it'll connect on crouching opponents. You can keep it active almost until you land. Builds good drill meter while still applying pressure as you'll stay in. Otherwise, this is the least damaging drive normal that Amane has. Not super rewarding in combos compared to his other D moves. Combined with Zettou and high drill level, it can be used for effective chipp strings like 5D > 236A > j.D > j.236A > j.D, though remember to mix it up with frame traps (like 5D > delay 214C) to avoid abare.

  • 7F~ possible to cancel into followups
  • Gains Drill level while stance is held
  • Projectile invulnerable while stance is held
  • Hariken immediately disappears if overheat is reached
  • Cannot use while another Hariken is active or while in overheat

  • Gauge values: 1~4F = freeze gauge; 5~30F = 60; 31~54F = 70; 55~78F = 80; 79~102F = 90; 103~127F = 100; adds 100 to all values while in OD until level 3
  • Gauge value at level 3 in OD is 30 points per frame

Depending on the input pressed while in the stance he'll place the drill at different distances on the screen; A = Close range, B = Mid range, C = Far range, and D cancels the stance.

[edit]

  • Cannot hit grounded opponents
  • Air unblockable even during blockstun

The hand will spawn at a fixed distance from Amane unless in the corner. The hand will never be off screen, so the range might change to accommodate this rule. Very useful for call outs if your opponent is jumping. Can be Rapid Canceled and combo'd afterwards into 2C for big damage.

[edit]

  • Active frames continue until landing
  • Amane will turn around if he lands behind the opponent for the last hit

Mostly used as a knockdown from air combos as it's unsafe otherwise. Can be rapid canceled into 2C for a combo extension. If you have 50 meter, you might also want to use it as it's really fast and will be either safe or give you a combo.

[edit]

A command jump that gives Amane the much needed additional mobility.

  • Directional input controls the hop's direction (236 = forward, 214 = back) and the button pressed affects the angle (A = short, B = long)
  • Can be done once on the ground and once in the air; Zettou uses are restored after landing (eg. whiffing a j.2B)
  • Using Zettou does not consume universal air movement options; combine with double jump or airdash for extra mobility
  • Cancels into all jump normals and specials (eg. does not directly cancel into double jump, airdash, or block) after a certain amount of time depending on which versions is used:
    • Ground A versions: 14F onwards
    • Ground B versions: 16F onwards
    • All Aerial versions: 7F onwards

[edit]

Projectile that travels on ground level.

  • Short range, big pushback on block, average overall recovery
  • Launches opponent in air on hit with lots of untech time

Ginga is a new addition that helps Amane's game on all areas:

  • In combos it gives an easy launch in corner for a great variety of routes
  • In okizeme it gives a frame advantage on block or launches the opponent for a combo if they roll, quick tech, or do not tech
  • In pressure it works as a safe frametrap ender with a big counterhit that combos into C normals

  • Base Damage is 800*8 on block, on hit it is as listed above
  • 180F Heat Gauge Cooldown
  • 1st hit forces opponent into standing on hit
  • On hit, only possible to Rapid Cancel last attack
  • Gauge immediately overheats after second attack on hit (not on block)

Only invincible reversal available. If blocked, it's very punishable. If whiffed (i.e. opponent jumped over it), Amane will travel a long distance that makes it hard to punish.

Depending on the drill level and resources available, different followups are possible.

Level 1

  • Only followup possible is by using Rapid Cancel
  • Possible to do Seijyuu > RC > 6D

Level 2

  • Followup with 3C

Level 3

  • Followup with 6C
