Introduction

P-1 Climax Nickname: "The Imperious Queen of Executions!"
Persona: Artemisia

Backstory:

  • Heiress to the Kirijo Group megacorporation, she feels driven to atone for the mistakes and sins her family is responsible for. One of the founders of SEES and the Shadow Operatives, Mitsuru is also one of the earliest people to awaken to a Persona without intervention.

  • Hit-confirming can be awkward or unsafe.

Normal Attacks

5A (Normal)

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
5A 300 All 8 3 19 -9 Chest
5AA 500 All 10 3 18 -4 Body
5AAA 200, 100x4 All 10 4,3,3,3,3 21 -7 Body

  • 5A Backdash Cancel is -8 on block
  • 5A is huge range, fast startup poke that is a cornerstone of Mitsuru's ground game. At its max range, it is safe to many DPs and simply dominates some matchups. However, it is one of the slowest 5As in the game and has noticeable recovery. Can be low profiled by almost every character, leaving Mitsuru vulnerable to a punish.
  • No longer whiffs on crouching opponents but is now Chest attribute, so it will lose to almost every sweep or other moves with chest invuln.
  • Mitsuru's auto-combo will hit both grounded and airborn opponents. 5AAA is also fairly safe and can be cancelled into specials or other normals, making it a good pressure tool.

5A (Shadow)

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
5A 300 All 8 3 19 -9 Chest
5AA 300 All 5 4 22 -9 Body
5AAA 300 All 4 5 26 -14 Body
5AAAA 300 All 5 4 22 -9 Body
5AAAAA 600 All 4 5 26 -14 Body

  • Shadow Mitsuru's version of the auto-combo. Does not combo on airborne opponents like normal Mitsuru's. Shadow Mitsuru has 5 strikes in her auto-combo, unlike the standard 3 of most characters.
  • 5A is the same as normal Mitsuru's 5A, with the same strengths and weaknesses.

5B

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
no/partial charge 700 All 17-26 3 28 -12 Body
max charge 910 All 29 3 28 -5 Body

  • A hop attack that has invincibility to both lows and grounded throws, making it a strong component of Mitsuru's throw mixup game.
  • May be directed backwards or forwards for better positioning before the attack comes out.
  • May hold the button to charge the attack and increase damage and hitstun.
  • Fatal Counters. Mitsuru's best standard punish. Charged 5B (also written as [5B]) crumples the opponent on counter-hit, allowing for high-damage follow-up combos.
  • May be forward dash-cancelled. When dash-cancelled, 5B is -3 while [5B] is +4.
  • [5B] can be cancelled into most other moves after frame 20.

2A

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
300 (250 for followups) L 9 3 15 -7 Foot

  • Mitsuru's fastest low. Significantly slower than most other character's and more recovery as well. However, Mitsuru's 2A has very good range.
  • Very limited combo options without a counter-hit. 2A x3, A Droit is often the best combo possible without a counter-hit.

2B

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
no/partial charge 500 HL 11~15 3 31 -17 Body
just frame release 1000 HL 16 3 31 -17 Body
max charge 650 HL 17 3 31 -17 Body

  • Mitsuru's strongest anti-air, with a long-range diagonal hitbox and high combo damage afterwards.
  • Often used to combo into 2DD and Bufula (Ice Mirror).
  • Launches grounded opponents on counter-hit, but 5B is typically a better starter.
  • May be charged for additional hitstun, head invincibility, and damage.
  • Release on frame 12 for the just-frame version, which has increased damage and slightly faster startup. Just-frame charge is not a low attack.
  • Typically not used on grounded opponents because of its low horizontal range and high amount of recovery.

j.A

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
300 H 7 12 16 - Head

  • High range, high priority, low reward horizontal jumping attack.

j.B

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
no/partial charge 400 H 11~15 6 25 - Head
just frame release 800 H 16 6 25 - Head
max charge 520 H 17 6 25 - Head

  • May be charged for additional damage and hitstun.
  • Charge for 12 frames for just-frame release, which has more damage and faster startup.
  • Commomly used as an air-to-ground poke during a lazy jump.
  • On counter-hit, charged j.B leads to a combo.
  • j.B OMC charged j.B leads to a full combo from an instant overhead and is one of Mitsuru's staple mix-up strings.
  • Not comboable on normal hit, so mix-up potential and reward require charging, meter, or a counter-hit.
  • Can be performed when hop-cancelling attacks to extend pressure. When executed as a hop-cancel, j.B is -3, j.[B] +4 ~+11F.

All Out Attack

A+B

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv. Attribute
300 Head 30 1 34 -16 Body

  • May be directed backwards or forwards for better positioning before the attack comes out. In addition to being an overhead, this attack can also cross up the opponent if Mitsuru dashes at a crouching opponent and holds forward.
  • Because of Mitsuru's weak combo options in midair, typically the D followup is best, cancelled into a B Coup Droit. This requires the Fatal Counter earned by mashing all 17 hits of the All-Out Attack, but allows for a full meterless combo near the corner.
  • A valid knockdown combo ender in the corner after a freeze.
  • Mitsuru's AoA has slow start-up, an obvious animation, and a tremendous amount of recovery, so it's best reserved for its use in combos. Highly punishable on block without the meter to One More! Cancel.

Feint - -- -- -- 25 - -
