Overview
Overview

Bridget is known for his extensive air mobility and keepaway game, and he comes with some particularly strong high/low mixups and unblockable setups.

Bridget can fly well over the top of the screen with his universal air movement options, as well as quickly get in and go for very quick overheads in pressure. His Yo-yo attacks and setup replace the functions of his H button, allowing Bridget to place slow moving, lingering hitboxes in places that some characters can have a very difficult time getting through. Attacking in tandem with Roger allows for Bridget to maintain pressure, and using Roger defensively lets Bridget get out of harm's way.

In exchange, Bridget suffers from low health and poor damage output, as well as generally not being able to score knockdowns out of air combos. This combined with his unusual movement options makes for a character that can be difficult to pick up but yield a unique character who can play both aggressively and runaway styles.


Lore:Despite the name and appearance, Bridget is actually male.
He is the product of a society where the birth of twins of the same gender was considered bad luck. His parents compassionionate choice to raise Bridget, rather than cast him out due to the nature of his birth, now fuels Bridget's love for his parents. Determined to disprove the supersticions of his village—Bridget sets out to become a bounty hunter.

GGACR Bridget Icon.png Bridget has great mobility and the game's best runaway, but also has very strong high/low and unblockable mixups.
Pros Cons
  • Excellent runaway/keepaway potential: Unparalleled air mobility and meter gain even on retreat lets Bridget control the pace from far away. Up to four "jumps" lets Bridget escape from nearly anywhere.
  • Strong reversal options: Starship is a grounded, FRC'able DP that can be difficult to punish, and Overdrives can come in clutch.
  • Roger cover and tandems: Roger provides space control, aids defense, and works for unblockable setups and pressure, and more.
  • Delayed wakeup: delayed get-up sets up yo-yo, and may mess up with other characters oki.
  • Auto OS'd throws with yo-yo active: HS not having any normals attached to it allows for free throw attempts when Roger is active.
  • Awfully low health: low defense value, zero Guts, and being light weight can have Bridget being done the moment he's caught.
  • Very limited pressure: lack over coverage tools and normals means Bridget is better suited to a hit-and-run style than fully pressing an advantage.
  • Poor damage and limited confirms: Low damage and lacks means of scoring a knockdown out of air combos.
  • Meter hungry: Good movement requires FD canceling Rolling Movement, meaning that you need meter.
  • Low margin of error: Easily beaten buttons, less than airtight setups, and some very low health combine to make a character who can be notoriously difficult to manage.
  • Limited throw OS: Since HS has no normals associated with it, Bridget cannot OS throws unless Roger is active, making failed throw attempts more dangerous.

Buttslam. Forward moving, difficult to contest, big stagger on CH making it perfect for frametraps. One of Bridget's best normals.

  • Has enough of a hop off the ground to go over low pokes/mash attempts
  • Active for forever and a real pain for some characters to deal with.
  • Cancel into Starship for some tacked on damage on normal hit if that's what you want.
  • Will completely stuff a surprising number of normals thanks to it's rather disjointed hitbox. Anything Kickstart My Heart can beat, this can and more.

A rather average air throw, but one of the keys to Bridget.

  • Bridget's only method of air knockdown outside of certain moves on counter-hit.
  • As your throw button is the same as yo-yo set the punishment for whiffing this is much steeper than other characters if you do not either have Roger active in some way, or the yo-yo returning to you as a poor yo-yo set is timely to recover from and only rarely useful.
  • You can throw your opponent into an active Roger for a combo, or for a reset into another potential air throw.

Bridget recalls his yoyo. Pressing H will trigger the startup animation, while holding H will delay the yoyo's actual movement for up to ~2.5 seconds. Pressing H again can cancel the callback, allowing you to move the yoyo closer without having to set it again. Can be used to extend combos or pressure, or as a zoning tool. Provides plenty enough time to confirm into a combo on hit. As this is considered a special move, you can cancel special cancelable normals into it allowing you to recover much faster from them than normal. It's actually still possible for Bridget to use Rolling Movement while delaying a yoyo recall, but the input has to either be returned to neutral or TKed to avoid just Faultless Defending in place (in other words, the input becomes 2145K or 2147K).

Bridget uses his yo-yo's like roller blades and rides on them across the screen.

  • The speed of the move can be increased or decreased by holding forward or back respectively at any point during the move. Holding forward from frame 1 will clear the entire screen, not holding anything moves roughly two thirds, and by holding back you move less than the distance of a forward yo-yo set.
  • Can be canceled into Stop or Shoot at any point during the active frames even if it has already been blocked, giving it the potential to bait potential punishes with proper timing.

A surprisingly incredible DP with a set of quirks setting it apart from others.

  • Grounded, up to 4 hits, and nonstandard hitstop can make this very difficult to bait or even punish.
  • Combos on hit or sets up a tech situation. Can knockdown if it CHs an extended hurtbox, eg.HOS's
  • Has an FRC right at the tail end of it, guaranteeing it stays perfectly safe
  • How to punish: FD the first few hits so Bridget gets pushed out and then hit him. It is also vulnerable throws for up to 4 frames before it goes active.

  • Strike invincible 1~16F
  • Throw invincible 1~9F
  • Floats opponent on hit
  • Knocks down opponent on ground hit
  • Hitstop 6F
  • FRC timing 19~20F
  • Can hit up to a maximum of 4 times
  • Initial prorate 80%

The air version is just as versatile as the grounded version. Used to end air combos or bait reversals.

  • Can be used for knockdowns at low height, though this is more an edge case than anything.
  • Surprisingly safe-ish at only -5, especially if tk'd at range.
  • Has the same FRC as the grounded version.
  • Completely vulnerable to air throws.

  • Strike invincible 1~13F
  • Floats opponent on hit (untechable for 24F)
  • Knocks down opponent on ground hit
  • Hitstop 6F
  • Can hit up to a maximum of 3 times
  • Listed Frame Adv is for fastest possible TK Air Starship (startup 16F)
  • FRC timing 19-20F
  • Initial prorate 75%

Bridget summons Roger ready to punch people's faces. Roger will appear wherever the yo-yo is set and will make his way back to Bridget while punching. Roger Rush will end once either he or Bridget is hit, he makes it back to Bridget, the move's duration expires, or if hits to a max of 3 times. The FRC window is at 16-17F. Staggers on hit usually long enough to run up and confirm into 5k, and is faster than jagged roger

214H 20×3 All 38 105 total:32 +36 - 3
j.214H 20×3 All 29 105 total:37 +29 - 3

Bridget summons Roger equipped with a saw around its body. Like in Roger Rush, or any of Bridget's moves that involve a yo-yo set for that matter, Roger will appear wherever the yo-yo is set and make its way back to Bridget while the saw blade spins. As opposed to Roger Rush, Jagged Roger returns to Bridget at a slower speed and stays out even when Bridget is hit after 22F. Jagged Roger will end once 105 frames have passed, he makes it back to Bridget, or if it hits an opponent 3 times. The FRC window is on frames 22-23.

  • Can use the number of hits it has remaining to instead nullify an equivalent number of hits of a projectile. These act on the total number of hits remaining the same as if it was hitting an opponent.
  • Rather good at raising the opponent's guard bar if they don't FD.

Bridget summons Roger who will then do a body slam and slide upon landing on the ground. Bear in mind that the direction which Roger drops depends on what direction you were facing when you set the yo-yo (i.e. if you set the yo-yo while facing the right side, Roger will drop towards the right side no matter what). Also, depending on the height at which the yo-yo is placed, the move will have different properties. The FRC window is at 20-21F.

Bridget rolls to his yoyo, wherever it is. Despite what you might at first think, this is the most important tool in Bridget's arsenal. Aside from the obvious movement option this provides, this can also allow for very quick and low overheads since this leaves Bridget in an aerial state. What makes this move a cornerstone of Bridget's game, however, is that when immediately canceled into Faultless Defense, it provides a very fast "jump" that doesn't actually take up one of your aerial movement options when done in the air. Bridget's movement becomes very, very strong with this tool. Since it's a special move, all his normals (except 5D) can cancel into it. Thus, it can be used as a pseudo-jump cancel on moves that aren't normally jump cancelable (such as f.S). Canceling into it allows Bridget to extend pressure, confirm from situations he normally couldn't, and escape after a potentially unsafe poke. It can also be immediately canceled into a normal, making it extremely useful for extending combos.

  • Active frames are: 10(10)10(18)16

Roger will perform three punches in place. The first punch will stagger the opponent, the second knocks them airborne, and the third will wallstick them. Opens the way for some strong combos on hit, and for mixup opportunities on block. There's a window between the second and third punches where you can throw the opponent (or they can throw you), making the threat of a high/low/throw/no mixup mixup very real on block. You can also use this window to crossup the opponent, by jumping over them right after the second punch.

Extremely fast Anti-Air/Reversal that can be difficult to safejump. Will catch them if they're in the line of fire, and weren't blocking before the superflash.

  • The explosion is guaranteed to execute on input, meaning that trading this is very bad for the opponent.
  • Every hit must be FD'd while airborne, making this a dangerous consideration for opponents approaching from the air.
  • Bridget falls backwards and shrinks his hurtbox during recovery, making it awkward to punish.
  • Can work as a high damage combo ender, though this is usually inoptimal.

  • Fully invincible 1~4F
  • Bridget is airborne 5~13F
  • Opponent's inputs are frozen after the super flash until the 1st active frame
  • Floats opponent on hit (untechable for 30F)
  • Explosion is guaranteed to execute once the command has been input

Long, obfuscating hitbox that tracks to Bridget, and is mainly used to cover him during mixups and approach. Very similar in function to Jagged Roger, but moves at speeds similar it's Force Break version.

  • Does a boatload of hits and tacks on a lot of damage compared to Bridget's overall kit. On block it does rather good chip and quickly raises the guard bar.
  • Stays active if Bridget is hit, discourages mashing or reversaling out.
  • Actually useful as a reversal, particularly with a close yo-yo, as it can cover Bridget's recovery.
  • Loses to throws, which will not only get Bridget hit, but will likely burn the rest of the move's active window.

  • Fully invincible 1~14F
  • Strike invincible 15~21F
  • Knocks down opponent on hit
  • Attack is guaranteed to activate once the command has been input
  • Roger can pass through other projectiles

The Delayed version moves more slowly, remaining more in place.

  • Useful if the opponent is far away on a knockdown and you want to keep them still while you approach.
  • Nonstandard hitstop allows for a bit of jank, but the fewer hits limits the time you have.
  • Has no invincibility compared to the normal version. Be sure not to mix them up!

  • Fully invincible 1F
  • Can hit up to 6 times
  • Knocks down opponent on hit (untechable for 60F)
  • Attack is guaranteed to activate once the command has been input
  • Roger can pass through other projectiles
  • Hitstop 6F
