Overview

Overview

Zooey is the last DLC character for DLC pack 1, released on April 28th. She is a long range character that uses powerful specials, relying on her character specific wyvern gauge to dominate neutral and keep her foes locked down. With her wyvern gauge and moves that can be held and later released to extend pressure, Zooey is a force to be reckoned with.
"I am the will of the world."
Lore:At first glance Zooey appears to be an innocent young girl, but her true form is that of the Grand Order, a primal beast tasked with keeping the balance of the world. Abhorring chaos, she takes to the skies and readies herself to fight after sensing three singularities—Gran, Beelzebub, and Djeeta—who will disturb the equilibrium of space and time. With swordsmanship beyond mortal capabilities and lightning magic at her command, as well as the aid of her faithful dragons Dyrn and Lyrn, she will ensure balance is upheld.
Voice:English: Laura Post/Japanese: Ami Koshimizu
Playstyle
Zooey is a zoner/pressure character that relies on her wyvern meter and negative edge to keep her opponents locked down.
Pros Cons
  • Good pressure tools
  • Has the ability to stall her air momentum with Aerial Thunder
  • Absolutely insane okizeme
  • Relies on a character specific meter on top of cooldowns
  • Only invincible option is Skybound Art; next-best reversal does not activate armor until frame 5.

Dragon Gauge GBVS Zooey Dragon Gauge.png

Dragon Gauge allows Zooey to control Lyrn and have him do various attacks independently of her. Summon Dragon puts Lyrn out into the battlefield, with each version taking a certain amount of the gauge, and can be done for as long as it's not empty. Lyrn will only despawn and go into cooldown once the gauge is fully depleted.

Zooey starts off each round with 50% of Dragon Gauge, which can be refilled using Convergence and The Last Wish. While Lyrn is in cooldown, refilling rate is significantly reduced. While he's in the battlefield, on top of reduced refill rate, the gauge is also depleted every time Zooey gets knocked down. After cooldown is over, she gains 50% Dragon Gauge along with the ability to summon Lyrn again.

Holding Convergence will recharge Zooey's Dragon Gauge. The Last Wish (press 6L/M/H while charging) has strike invincibility and one hit of projectile clash, and will also charge 50% of the Dragon Gauge on hit.

While Lyrn is active or in cooldown, 5U charge speed is halved and The Last Wish on hit only charges for 16.7%. Exact values for Dragon Gauge can be found in Zooey's Frame Data page.

Zooey calls Lyrn to perform one of three actions. Each action takes a certain amount of Zooey's Dragon Gauge, and can be done for as long as the gauge is not empty. Lyrn will despawn once the gauge is fully depleted and go on 12 second cooldown. All three of these specials will set Lyrn in place wherever he stops for about three seconds. Afterwards, Lyrn returns to float by Zooey's side. While set or floating by Zooey, Lyrn cannot be hit.


Immortal Thrust
  • Costs 6.66% of the Dragon meter.
  • Extremely fast projectile.
  • Always teleports Lyrn to Zooey's position before launching.

Clashes with other projectiles and repositions Lyrn. Immortal Thrust has amazing frame advantage for a projectile and will usually be plus at Zooey's maximum poking range.


Heavy Breath
  • Costs 12.5% of the Dragon meter.
  • Launches on hit, allowing for juggles.
  • Activates at Lyrn's position unless Zooey is closer.
  • Lyrn will also teleport to Zooey if he is behind the opponent and farther than half screen.
  • Will correct for the corner so the entire move can connect.
  • Even though the startup is 34 frames, Zooey cannot move until frame 50.

While Sweeping Beam is better for mixups, Heavy Breath is best used midscreen after Bisection. If the opponent doesn't have a reversal or chooses not to, Zooey becomes very plus. If they do reversal, Zooey will be far enough away that it should whiff.


Sweeping Beam
  • Costs 25% of the Dragon meter.
  • Activates at Lyrn's position unless Zooey is closer.
  • Lyrn will also teleport to Zooey if he is behind the opponent and farther than half screen.
  • Will correct for the corner so the entire move can connect.
  • Cannot move until frame 44.

While Sweeping Beam is slow, it is by far Zooey's most powerful summon. It persists if Zooey blocks, but will go away if Zooey is hit or techs a throw. Sweeping Beam allows for combos from Zooey's Throw and Universal Overhead, as well as stronger combos off her low options like 2L or 2U. It also has some usage to stop approaches, but the beam doesn't quite hit at full screen.

Zooey moves forward and swings her blade. The distance covered changes depending on the button pressed; L moves the least distance, M and H move the same distance. Chains into two different followups, allowing for confirms into knockdown or frame traps.


L Version
  • Go-to version

Combos from all buttons except c.L and 2L (even on CH).


M Version
  • Counterhit/crouch confirm.

Can only be cancelled into for a natural combo from c.H, f.H, and 2H. It can be cancelled into for a natural combo from c.M, f.M, and 2M on CH or if it hits a crouching opponent, and it can be cancelled into for a natural combo from f.L if the attack hits crouching and is a CH.


H Version
  • Best of both worlds.
  • Links to c.H on counter hit.

Use this if you're lazy or want the knockdown/launch.

  • Value in [] is when the rising portion whiffs.

Zooey leaps into the air before crashing down to the ground. The L version has no hitbox while rising and is generally useless. The M and H versions make for good anti-airs, as they have some Head invincibility and combo into the descending hits on air connect. The H version will also lead to a hard knockdown, providing an alternate to 214H when it's on cooldown.

  • Data in [] refers to the lightning itself.
  • Earliest possible lightning happens after the 15 frame startup of the sword hit and the 19 frame startup of the lightning itself (34).
  • c.XXX > 22L is -2 on block and +2 on hit.

Zooey strikes the ground with her blade and calls down lightning in one of three areas. The blade strike itself has a hitbox. The strike point for the lightning depends on which button was pressed, marked by a glowing group of sparks on the ground. The minimum range on the L and M versions makes the lightning summon harmlessly offscreen when done in the corner.

The lightning strike itself can be delayed by holding L, M, H, or the Skill Button and will fall shortly after Zooey is no longer holding an attack button (except U) or after about three seconds of holding, allowing Zooey to coordinate with the strikes to extend her pressure. The button(s) being held can be switched freely without the lightning striking as long as at least one of the attack buttons is held.


L Lightning
  • L version calls lightning closest to Zooey.

General purpose blockstring ender.


M Lightning
  • Calls lightning farther out.

Weirdly enough, M version has the longest range, going out further than the H version.


H Version.
  • Hits multiple times, starting close to Zooey and traveling outwards.
  • Pushes opponent away.

Covers the area between the front of Zooey and the area just slightly before M lightning range.

Zooey fires lightning down at an angle. The L version fires the projectile close to her while the M version fires it further away. The H version fires both at once, and also goes even further than M version. Zooey's momentum is stalled while using this, so it is very useful as anti-anti-air or as a tool to keep the opponent on the ground. The H version will only hard knockdown on airborne opponents.
