Overview

Noel is a mobile rushdown character who uses her Drive to evade and mix up her opponents.


Lore:Following the events of Chrono Phantasma, Noel Vermillion has lost many of her memories due to splitting part of herself into Mu in order to prevent ending the world.
Playstyle
Pros Cons
  • High mobility.
  • Good corner carry.
  • Decent ground normals.
  • 4D allows Noel to bait reversal options on the spot while continuing pressure.
  • Instant d.6b canceling provides potent high-low mixup when Noel is landing from the air.
  • Short effective range, can't really contest most other characters from far away.
  • Unreliable reversal options.
  • Heavily meter dependent - often needs to rapid cancel to do any sophisticated mixup attempts.
  • Difficult to convert stray hits into combos
  • Careless drive usage is easily punishable.
  • Drive loses heavily to defensive Overdrive usage.
Drive: Chain Revolver

Noel's Drives function two different ways. Upon initial Drive press, Noel uses a Drive attack, and then she is in a a chain revolver state where all of her normal commands are different and three more special moves are available. The chain revolver state lasts until you stop inputting commands or perform a special/distortion cancel.

  • Noel may cancel any Drive move into any other move, with the exception that she may not repeat a move twice in a row.
  • If chain revolver ends without a special cancel, Noel performs a short reload animation before being able to perform any other commands again.
  • Noel is limited to 4 normal commands after the initial drive stater. Attempts to perform more will be ignored, but she may still perform a special cancel at this point.
  • In drive state, Noel can use any special move she previously had access to, as well as 3 special moves exclusive to Drive: Spring Raid, Bloom Trigger, and Assault Through.
Overdrive: Chain Quasar
Activating Noel's Overdrive has numerous positive effects:
  • Faster startup speed and faster recovery for drive moves (Loses "Reload" animation)
  • Thor (air super) allows Noel to recover in the air after the missile fires
  • Bloom Trigger hits more than twice
  • Assault Through has increased invuln and short invisibility before going active
  • Spring Raid has increased untech time allowing for combos

[edit]

  • Doesn't have projectile
  • Flare clashes with projectiles
  • Can now sometimes miss if it hits offscreen in corners or if certain characters are within a very close proximity to Noel during the animation. (Inside of the space between Noel and Noel's muzzle flash)

5C is perhaps Noel's best spacing tool since it has a good hurtbox and slightly longer / larger hitbox compared to 5B, but it is slower. This is the only attack that will combo into 3C on a crouching opponent. On CH it also leads into damaging combos through 5D, 6B > 5D, or Muzzle Flitter. Overall 5C is your go to punish starter in most situations, which can lead to very damaging combos potentially up to 8K depending on conditions met and resources at your disposal.

[edit]

  • No longer wall sticks on 2nd hit
  • Forces standing on counter hit
  • First hit is not jump cancellable anymore
  • Second hit of 6C cannot hit crouches
  • Second hit is now jump cancellable on block
  • Will now stagger the opponent long enough for the muzzle flash to hit without needing a counter

6C is heavly nerfed in the juggle department as opponents will now tech a lot sooner than usual in prorated combos. This also means things like 6C > 6B knockdowns are no longer possible after the first few hits in a juggle combo. It is also no longer possible to jump cancel 6C(1) to bait bursts or transition into j.D routes mid combo as it is now a tool that forces you to commit fully into it's use as an option / combo filler.

It is still possible to delay cancel the 2nd hit into a 2C or a throw but the window for this is now smaller due to the 2nd hit now coming out a lot faster in CF, effectively making this gimmick less reliable for opening up opponents when used along with the 6C > 6B gatling.

Use this move only as a combo filler in normal situations. However, to punish DPs that recover crouching like Jin's 623C, use CH 6C > 214A or CH 6C > 6B > 5D > etc.. for a punish up to potentially 5k. Overall, 6C is your secondary go to punish starter behind 5C in the event you need a standing confirm.

[edit]

A somewhat situational air spacing tool. Can be used preemptively to beat out or trade with some air normals when spaced well enough. Its best application is normally for air to ground routes in some combos in the corner leading into j.D, or into Revolver Blast air ender, which for Noel, Air combos are a last resort for situations where you cannot convert into a ground combo. It is also used occasionally to setup "Drive Landing Cancellation" tactics into d.6B on the way down offensively for a very fast overhead attempt if it is blocked. It can also be used after jumping in with j.C, to add a weak fuzzy guard overhead (since j.C itself is not).

[edit]

  • Reverse gatlings into j.B or j.A

Noel's best air normal, period. Its hitbox is relatively decent, when spaced well in the air you can get a nice CH combo. Its underwhelming as a jump in due to its small vertical hitbox, also do take note that it is not an overhead. Like j.B you can use this normal preemptively to meet opponents ground to air for a considerable sized hitbox on the way up. On air CH, the untech time is long enough for you to land into a 5C pick up in most situations. Also is used in conjunction with "Drive Landing Cancellation" tactics leading into d.6B for an overhead on the way down.

[edit]

  • Wallbounces in the corner, allowing for j.2C > air dash > j.2C
  • No longer causes a hard knockdown state on air hit (previously did in CPEX)
  • Now causes soft knockdown state on hit (opponents can neutral tech immediately now)
  • Now floats the opponent on hit against a ground opponent
  • 110% Bonus Proration

Overall, j.2C doesn't really see much use outside of corner combos. In the case of corner combos it is usually a combo extender leading to Noel's combo enders overall. However, if used near the beginning of a combo after 5C, it leads to some of Noel's highest damage cofirms up to potentially 5k or more making this a staple in corner combos. In neutral, you can use this as a unusual spacing tool when combined with an air dash or a second jump after it whiffs for some tricky footwork. Another way to use it is to preemptively go into it on rising jump startup near the opponent to simulate a jump in attempt. j.2C's recoil effect after it whiffs / hits helps halt your position in the air for a moment which can be used as a way to dodge an opponent's initial anti air attempt if used right, then you can air dash back in for a potential hit confirm after the recoil effect. It's a gimmicky tactic to use but it's risky so use sparingly

  • Fatal Counter

No invincibility, fastest drive move used to start drive mixup. When used against a knocked down opponent in the corner, it will catch all rolls for a 3K corner combo. Your most damaging punish on Fatal Counter for invulnerable reversals that leave the opponent standing.

In Overdrive, 5D becomes faster, allowing you to combo 5C into 5D on standing hit.

  • Now only hits 3 times (5 hits in CPEX previously)
  • Now forces crouching state on hit
  • Can no longer be cancelled into Thor Distortion or Revolver Blast on hit or block


2D has had an animation change that changes it from a huge drive cart wheel into a little drive hop that closely resembles her old 2D from older Blazblue iterations before CP, but hits differently now. It is a useful drive move for dodging a lot of low hitting attacks in the game while travelling forward a considerable amount of distance at the same time but is pretty slow on start up. It's a decent drive to use to re-enter back in range for drive mix ups after a long pressure string with Noel's normals on pushback on a blocking opponent. You will also find yourself doing this a lot in corner combos along side things like D.5B for the wall bounce that leads into Revolver Blast. If you can get the height midscreen you can also use this as a useful viable screen carry also.

It is also possible to clash kill projectiles with 2D but is not a prominent tactic to do concerning this drive as its rare to do this in general. This is also quite punishable by Anti-airs or general pokes from fast reacting opponents as it does take a split second for the animation to go active in terms of an actual hit box after the hop.

A low hitting drive attack. Although it's a bit on the slow side, 6D is a very useful move to dodge a considerable amount of projectile or body based attacks while covering ground. This makes 6D an effective tool in matchups against zoners or in certain long range spacing situations that Noel has trouble dealing with due to her short range. It is also one of the three choices to start drive pressure, next to 5D and 2D. It can also catch some people blocking high if they're expecting 6B. You can call out bad pressure with this move, but 4D functions better as a reversal. Both lose to F property attacks. It is most helpful to Instant Block into 6D when on the defensive to maximize its use as a reversal attempt.

4D is Noel's main reversal option. Nerfed compared to older versions of Blazblue, but still useful. You can use this reversal option at its best by using an option select to help along with proper reads and judgment calls (1 > 4+AB~D~1) to dodge some body attacks and overheads. Can be used offensively to bait most DPs, reversals, Exceed Accel, and Counter Assaults. Can also be used to hit opponents who jump during their pressure, but must be done while the opponent is still rising, since 4D no longer has Head Invuln.

  • Forward momentum returned but travels slightly farther than usual

j.D is mostly an important drive combo filler that helps convert air combos to ground combos. In most combos it is normally used near the beginning of the combo or near the end of coner combos that use the j.2C > air dash > j.2C route that transitions into j.D right afterwards. Trying to go into j.D after a certain amount of hits will cause it to whiff in a lot of combos after j.C(1) or on a short starter / prorated combo.

It should be noted that j.D is a hurtbox has a tendency to extend to the guns meaning somebody can hit the muzzle flash and it will occasionally hit her out of j.D sometimes. Can be used as a cross up gimmick via IAD > j.D but don't rely on it too much as it can quickly get you killed if blocked.

OD version moves Noel forward when used, so it can be used for crossups again.

  • No longer a fatal counter

Used only as combo/blockstring filler. Has a ridiculous amount of blockstun, which makes it able to true blocktring into any of her other drive normals. The absurd blockstun also allows her to Crush Trigger with only about a 3 frame gap. In CF, you can now use this move to attempt a pressure reset in drive by allowing the reload frames to occur and follow up with 5A or 2A since the reload frames are much faster.

[edit]

The follow up version of 6D, there's not much of a difference between this move and the starter version, though d.6D has a higher P1, leading to higher damage than it's starter variation. d.6D is a low drive hit that has similar startup to d.6B, this is half of Noel's High/Low drive mixup

Using d.6D while in very close proximity to your opponent will cause Noel to shadow step through the opponent and hit from behind. This becomes extremely useful when you become very familiar with skipping the initial drives on landings. This means you can do things like dropping directly or diagonally on your opponent while using J5C on the way down forcing them to block, quickly inputting the desired drive making your first drive the shadow step (d.6D) instead of the regular slower and a short drive 6D

  • Wallbounces midscreeen & in corner
  • First hit causes stagger, 2nd hit causes blowback effect

Noel's normal drive ender for midscreen combos. On the offensive, this is usually used to help push back an opponent on block to make enough space to escape back into neutral, however if the last hit is Instant Blocked, it can be punished. It also is known to decently set up a safe jump attempt as a follow up midscreen by IAD into a j.1C as long as the opponent neutral techs into this situation. However, the opponent can roll tech out of the safe jump attempt, which Noel cannot answer to outside of just chasing them afterwards.

In overdrive Bloom Trigger is usable in corner combos with a prerequisite of a little bit of height to your juggle. The overdrive version adds more hits to Bloom Trigger.

  • 1-18F Fully Invul.
  • Causes blowback ground slide effect on air normal hit
  • Causes blowback wallbounce effect on Counter Hit


Assault Through is a drive special that is occasionally used as a method to produce corner push in midscreen to corner combos, help put the opponent back in the corner in specific corner combos, and lastly help setup 22B corner oki as it provides a hard sliding knockdown state for the setup. It can be used as a weak crossup, though it gives you no real advantage on hit or on block. On CH it wallbounces leading to a decent combo. This move is mainly used to punish opponents who are attempting to punish Noel whiffing drive outside of combo use, the goal is for this to counter hit overall.

Assault Through in overdrive causes a wall bounce on air hit, and allows a standing combo on normal hit. The invuln frames of the overdrive version also cause Noel's sprite to disappear, making it a little harder to block as a crossup, though not much.

[edit]

  • 1-10F Fully Invuln.
  • Can now be used in combos meterless & without counter hit
  • Now has a lower hop effect on Noel leaving her closer to the ground


Spring raid is mostly used in corner combos to help maximize Noel's corner damage overall. Can be used in combos midscreen as well but is less prominently used there as opposed to the corner. It is also a somewhat decent way to potentially CH then opponent from trying to hit you on the way down from something like j.D but its risky so be careful not to find yourself in this situation often.

The overdrive version of Spring Raid launches the opponent higher than usual allowing for follow ups with 5C, 6C, or 5D

  • Possible to charge.
  • 180F Heat Gauge Cooldown.

Outside of causing Guard Crush, it is rarely used by Noel because there are not many places to fit it in effectively. In combos, the charged variation is also rare outside of 5K confirms off of CH 5C on crouching and CH 6C (both in corner). For the most part it's best to save your meter for more important things like making yourself safe by using Rapid Cancels, and using Counter Assault. It can occasionally be used as a method of exiting drive pressure without being at frame disadvantage or using d.6C.

  • 236B: Old 236C from previous versions, Shoots at basically the maximum distance both characters can be from each other.
  • Can now dash cancel on hit or whiff

Severely weakened frame advantage on block. Following it up with a dash cancel into 5A / 2A is now a very risky option as it loses to 6 frame attacks and trades with 7 frame attacks. Neither Optic Barrels causes a knockdown on a ground hit. The goal is to hit them in the air, which will cause a knockdown.

  • No longer wall sticks in corner
  • No longer ground slide from a blowback effect midscreen
  • Causes a launch effect similar to Noel's 6A on hit

Combos off of 5C and 2C for a basic knockdown. Noel's closest thing to Ragna's Hell's Fang for midscreen short confirms in which going into drive conversions into Bloom Trigger isn't availiable. Chamber Shot serves as Noel's secondary combo ender and also as a combo extender for corner confirms which is typically followed up with 5B or a dashing 2A. You can also use Chamber Shot as a poke gesture in neutral and a somewhat unconventionally situational anti air if spaced and timed right against some IAD jump ins as it does have a sizable hitbox.

  • Knockdown distance after j.2C follow up is closer to Noel midscreen

Noel's air ender to end air combos. Essential to Noel's corner combos (i.e. d.5B > d.2D) to increase overall combo damage. Midscreen it isn't that great of an ender as the opponent is able to just roll out after due to recovery and spacing after the follow up attack j.2C. Due to this its mainly just used in corner combos. Noel's air ender to end air combos. Can also be used to create a big hitbox around her during it's animation to potentially hit incoming opponents who approach her by Tiger Kneeing its input close to the ground. The multiple hits can also be used situationally to clash kill multihit projectiles.

  • Combo throw, can hit enemies in hitstun without incurring purple exclaimation marks.
  • Can only grab standing opponents

A Command Grab that can be combo'd into and out of. Can only hit standing opponents, and will whiff on crouching or jumping opponents. Can be combo'd into with normal throw, Fatal 5D, CH 5C / 6C / d.4D, d.6C, d.4D during a Fatal combo, or 236D(1) > Rapid. Overall its not that good as its risky to do considering it puts Noel in Counter Hit state on whiff guaranteeing a punish for the opponent. It is primarily used to variate mix ups between d.6B and d.6D where MF can substitute for the d.6B to catch high blocking opponents.

  • 200% Heat Gain
  • Both versions can only be used if the opponent has already been knocked down once in the combo.

22B
  • Hold B for more shots

22B is used as a combo extender in some cases. Is also used as a combo ender to set up Noel's 22B oki. Can be chained into the C version by hitting C while holding down B, which is useful when a faster startup or different timing is required in a combo


22C
  • Dash cancellable
  • Ground bounces

22C is used as a combo filler after 3C, 6D , d.6D or any general knockdown to continue a combo.

  • Invincibility disappears after super flash
  • 15% minimum damage (Normal: 525 OD: 720)
  • 180F Heat Gauge Cooldown
  • Last hit is airdash cancellable in Overdrive

Overall, Thor is a super that is normally used to either stack a lot of damage upfront for a strong 4- 5k combo (mostly in corners), midscreen counter hit OD combos that use OD Thor for up to 5K, or to tack on damage to close out a round. It is also sometimes used to counter anti air attempts in some situations but is risky depending on the opponent's character. You can combo Thor into Fenrir as a double super ender for corner combos.

[edit]

Classic Noel Only: Noel's astral completely removes her hitbox from her sprite, so it can be used as a reversal, however certain moves (Invulnerable moves with forward momentum) will pass right through her over to the other side, thus making the actual Astral whiff. In most cases, if you're attempting to use this as a reversal, you're more likely to catch with her counter astral although this option is safer. No longer links of juggle 6C. Can juggle off d.6C but standing hit d.6C may cause the opponent to pass through your character and whiff. Guaranteed off first hit of throw, juggle d.5b in corner. Very limited combo options off mid-screen.
