Overview[edit]
Overview

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.


Lore:This foxy lass puts her life on the line to acquire a power she will need to save a dear friend. Her undying conviction in the face of any obstacle will be what ultimately brings an end to the thousand-year curse.

Playstyle
GBVS Yuel Icon.png Yuel is a mobile rushdown character who specializes in close-range pressure through deft use of her Third Dance stance.
Pros Cons
  • 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 in the mid-range.
  • Fluffy Tail
  • Low overall damage: Yuel has only one consistent corner combo starter (H Starlit Sky) which leads to relatively mediocre damage in the corner. In general, her damage from most connects is below average.
  • Stance commitment: While oppressive when used properly, Yuel's Third Dance stance loses to lows, overheads, and throws, meaning it must be used carefully to avoid being punished for over commitment.
  • Weak at long 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.

[edit]

  • 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.

[edit]

This is an amazing button and easily a candidate for one of the best f.Ms in the game. Almost certainly Yuel's best normal for neutral in general.

  • It has pretty fast startup, at only 8 frames. It is also generally safe on block even when not cancelled, despite its frame data.
  • It's 2 hits, with both hits being cancelable, making it very easy to confirm into unsafe options such as M Starry Sky, or either of her Skybound Arts.
  • It moves Yuel pretty far forward, making it excellent for poking aggressively or for whiff punishing.

This normal is not completely infallible, however, as it can lose to some low profiling pokes, and heavy normals (due to the priority system). Still, you'll probably press this button a lot.

[edit]

Yuel's normal anti-air. Has a pretty good hitbox despite the strange animation. Unlike most 2Hs in the game, it is 2 hits, and the counter hit property does not carry between the two hits, so conversions depend on which hit you decide to cancel and if they got counter hit or not. Your best conversion routes here are 2H(1) > td.2H or 2H(2) xx 22H, but the latter conversion has a tendency to fall out if the opponent is close to or a bit behind you. The former conversion only works on counter hit, but will always work regardless of the opponent's position.

[edit]

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 mids (referred to in game as highs).
    • Loses to projectiles despite projectiles being classified as mids.
    • Loses to lows, overheads, and throws.
  • Yuel cannot block during stance, but can perform Evade. She cannot perform Cross Over.
  • 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 DPDragon PunchA 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 GBVS Gran Icon.png 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.

[edit]

  • 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 will frame trap and combo from td.2L. 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.

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.

[edit]

Chargeable advancing attack. Used to cover ground while in stance and potentially reset your pressure.

  • Good option after canceling into stance from Hanaarashi's backstep if your opponent is just blocking.
  • Can be used to whiff punish or check opponents mashing to stop Yuel approaching in stance.
  • 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.

[edit]

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

[edit]

  • Pressing U will transition Yuel into Third Dance during recovery.
  • L Starlit Sky is a safe way to transition into stance offense, as Yuel is +1 on hit.
  • H Version wallbounces in the corner, allowing for followups.

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

[edit]

  • 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.

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.

623M is slower and more damaging than 623L, but has more forward momentum during startup and gives better okizeme due to the knockdown ender giving Yuel enough time to dash up and hit the opponent after their recovery. 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.

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.

[edit]

  • Pressing U during the initial backflip will transition Yuel to Third Dance, rather than attacking.
  • Pressing M during 214H will have Yuel instead do a low attack.
  • 214H will wallbounce in corner on air hit.

Hanaarashi gives Yuel a safe way to discourage your opponent from mashing. The initial backflip pulls her out to a range where a lot of the cast has to hard-commit to an advancing special move to do anything about, which in turn is beaten by Yuel entering her stance and sitting still. The followups on 214L and 214H that look like overheads are actually plus mids, which lets her re-assert her turn once her opponent respects her stance.

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.

H 800 All 23 8 14 +1 +5

[edit]

  • 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.

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.

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.

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.
