Overview

Overview

Metera is a keep-away character whose playstyle is to chip away at the opponent. With her arrows, using tools like Aetherial Seal change the properties of her Starry Sky to keep opponents locked down or effectively doing high damaging combos all while graciously floating about the screen with a smile on her face.
"There's nothing I can't do!"
Lore:An Erune woman blessed with myriad talents, chief among them the abilities to wield a magic bow and to sustain flight completely unaided. She once acted as a guardian for her home village, watching over an altar where a sinister force was enshrined. But she grew tired of the mundane regimen and abandoned her post. Now she wanders wherever the wind takes her. Her arrows are a reflection of this freedom—unhindered by any obstacle and sure to find their target. Once she sets her eyes on a mark, there’s nowhere to hide.
Voice:English: Faye Mata/Japanese: Ryoka Yuzuki
Playstyle
Metera is a projectile zoner that controls space with multiple arrows and special movement. She is able to utilize her butterflies for setplay options that can lead to big damage or additional space control.
Pros Cons
  • Projectile Zoning: Myriad of projectiles from both ground and air to frustrate opponents with.
  • High-Damage Setups: Aetherial Seal changes the properties of Starry Sky and The Great Fall, helping set up many of her high damage combo routes and pressure.
  • Double Jump: Can double-jump using Zephyr hop, an amazing tool for pressure and escaping.
  • Evasive: Starry Sky (Low) low-profiles, and combining that with Starry Sky (Air) and Zephyr hop make sure that opponents can't easily touch her.
  • Fast backwalk Speed: She has one of the fastest backwalk speeds in the game, good at making some characters whiff normals
  • Lower Health: Has 950 health points rather the average 1000 health, along with Ferry.
  • Slow Normals: Her fastest normals are slower than most of the cast and also have short reach.
  • No Meterless Reversal: No reversal besides her super, making it very difficult for her to escape corner pressure.
  • Situational Anti-Air: She has numerous Anti-air options between (1/2H), The Great Fall, and f.5M, but each have their own weaknesses so you can't only rely on one.

  • Treated as a projectile.
    • Air-blockable, due to being considered a projectile.
  • Special and 5U cancelable.
    • Cannot cancel on projectile clash.
  • 2H makes the arrow fly at a 45° angle.
  • 1H makes the arrow fly at a tighter, 15° angle.
  • Actives Aetherial Seal.

Huge hitstun on counter hit, they won't recover until they hit the ground. Allows combos like 2H > 5U > j.H for big damage against jump-happy opponents. Even though it's air blockable, Metera can still start pressure afterwards using 5U.

1H, in comparison to 2H, is great at hitting people who jump/superjump on top of you.

Ground Versions
  • L version is slower, M version is faster.
  • H version hits 3 times and gives a hard knockdown.
  • Easy Input deals 100 chip, Technical Input deals 150.
  • Activates Aethereal Seal.

Metera cannot fire a new Starry Sky (High/Low) before the former one disappears off screen, gets blocked, or hits the opponent. Travels higher than a standard projectile, so it won't hit crouching foes at a distance. Cleanly goes over lower hitting projectiles.


Air Versions
  • L version cancels momentum.
  • M version cancels momentum and causes a Soft Knockdown on counterhit.
  • H version hits 3 times and gives a hard knockdown.
  • Easy Input deals 100 chip, Technical Input deals 150.
  • Activates Aetherial Seal.

Metera fires at a downward angle. The L & H versions fires at a steep downward shot, M fires a more horizontal shot. Good for counterpoking. The H version in particular is infamous for being a high damage throw bait.

Ground Versions
  • L version is slower, M version is faster.
  • H version hits 3 times and gives a hard knockdown.
  • Easy Input deals 100 chip, Technical Input deals 150.
  • Activates Aetherial Seal.

Metera cannot fire a new Starry Sky (High/Low) before the former one disappears off screen, gets blocked, or hits the opponent. Cleanly goes under higher hitting projectiles. Forms a basic conditioning game with High Starry Sky, as the high version can be crouched under but recovers much faster.


Air Versions

Essentially the same as High Starry Sky's air version, with the distinction of being tied to a different cooldown.

  • First hit is air unblockable.
  • L version fires close to Metera, M and H versions fire farther away.
  • H version does not overshoot the corner and gives a hard knockdown.
  • L and M versions' upward shot does not hit grounded opponents, H version's does not hit crouching opponents.
  • Initial arrow activates Aetherial Seal.

Metera fires an arrow toward the sky that bursts into a shower of arrows. The range makes it one of Metera's strongest Anti Air moves. If Metera gets hit after firing the initial arrow, the shower stops immediately.

  • Hold down the button to make L & M butterflies to fly ~45° upward.
  • L and M versions spawn 1 butterfly, H version spawns 2.
  • H version does not flutter past the corner.
  • Any move that fires an arrow triggers the explosion.
    • These include: f.H, 2H, 1H, Universal Overhead, Starry Sky (High and Low), and The Great Fall (Initial Arrow).
  • Easy Input explosion deals 150 chip, Technical Input deals 200.

Your setplay tool. Blow a kiss to send out butterfly that flutters across the stage. It does nothing by itself, but can be triggered to explode vertically by hitting it with any of Metera's arrow moves. The butterflies eventually will fizzle out, but the H version is the only version that stops at the stage wall. Butterflies are mostly used to extend combos, especially in corner for many of Metera's high damage routes. It can also be used to deny an opponent's approach, but it's harder to have one set up for that purpose than to have one set up after a knockdown.

Performs a powerful jumping somersault kick.

  • Easy metered air unblockable anti air super. Great for closing out rounds.
  • The range for the cinematic version is increased by using the technical input.
  • Can take advantage of the invincible frames and be used as a slow reversal, but the slow startup makes it vulnerable to safe jabs, safe frame traps and safe jumps.
  • The animation is misleading, The super will whiff if an opponent directly above or behind you.
