5AA

Shadow Labrys follows up the first attack with a horizontal swing of her axe. Lifts the opponent slightly off the ground.

5B

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
950 All CO 15 2 19 -6 Body - Click!

Sweeps the axe in front of Labrys. Big poke, but somewhat slow. However, its recovers is fair, after it becomes active, making it safe as a distance poke against most characters. Chainable to 2B. Fatal counters, making it a good punish starter.

2A

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
152 L CO 7 2 14 -1 Foot - Click!

A very fast low hitting strike. Has very short range. Does not cancel into itself. Along with 5A, it's one of her fastest normals, but unlike 5A, it combos to 5B, and the 2A 5B 2AB series is a staple low chain. A useful tool for mixups, frame traps, and the like.

2B

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
760 AUB C(J)O 25 4 20 -4 Body Head 7-28 Click!

Axe sweeps a large arc above Labrys, and she is also lower to the ground during this so it is a very strong anti-air. However, it is very slow to start up. Jump cancelable only on hit, but is chainable to 5B. Fatal counters.

j.A

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
190 H CJO 9 4 12 -1 Head - Click!

Slanted downward kick. Jump cancelable. Can cross up. Pretty weak, but fast, and cancels to j.B.

j.B

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
570 H CJO 17 4 12 -1 Head - Click!

Swings axe up from below, hitting around Labrys in the shape of a "J". Fairly fast, can be easily used as crossup. Due to the combination of amazing hitbox, speed, and damage, this normal becomes a staple attack that Shadow Labrys can use for all sorts of reasons. Jump cancelable.

j.BB

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
760 All JSO 13 6 22 - Body - Click!

Followup to j.B, swings axe horizontally across. Causes wall bounce. Jump cancellable. 9 frames of landing recovery if not cancelled or recovering in air.


Guard Cancel Attack

000 All O 18 4 24 -24 Body 1-22 Unthrowable Autoguard Click!

Based on her 5AAA normal. Can combo through with 2C or with One More! Cancel, but a combo off of Guard Cancel Attack can never kill an opponent.

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
950 L O 15 3 20 -6 Foot - Click!

Shadow Labrys slides forward a little while sweeping her axe low in front of her. Bad on block, but usually safe if spaced well or they don't instant block. Not special or super cancellable.


Persona Attacks

At all times, Asterius has autoguard against moves with 400 or less base damage. If Shadow Labrys blocks, Asterius will stop doing any moves it's doing, except 8C (while underground only), SB skills, and Titanomachia.

Knuckle Train Persona Required

5C

A big punch from Asterius. Causes a long ground slide.

Cliff of Creta Persona Required

5D/2D

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
000 - - - - - - - - Click!

Asterius guards itself. Since he's always on-screen, this helps avoiding constant Persona Breaks. There is no difference between 5D and 2D, it blocks both highs and lows just fine.

Terra's Eruption Persona Required

2C

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
475×5 (1423) All - 42 36 150 total duration - Body - Click!

Asterius sends a long wave of fire from its horns. Has deceptively great horizontal range, can serve as a good anti-air. On hit or block, it can be used to lock the opponent in place while you get in place to start a mixup. A staple move for zoning, pressure, and combos alike. If 2C is interrupted after it becomes active, the flames will continue as normal.

Hammer Uppercut Persona Required

8C

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
1900 All - 113 8 182 total duration 13 hitstop + 28 blockstun Body - Click!

Asterius goes underground, then performs a huge uppercut. Tracks the opponent's location. Blows the enemy up higher on counterhit.


Throws

C+D

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
0, 760 Grab O 5 3 19 - Grab - Click!

Grabs opponent and throws them to the floor, then slams her axe down into them while stepping on it. Can be comboed after with OMB or OMC, or Asterius attacks.

Air Throw

j.C+D

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
0, 1425 Grab O 5 3 19 - Grab - Click!

Throws opponent towards the wall. If close enough, causes wall bounce which can be comboed after.


Furious Action

5th Gen Axe Slash

B+D

Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox
855 H/L/A U 15 4 42 -29 Body 1-18 Unthrowable Autoguard Click!

Autoguard based F-Action. Shadow Labrys swings her axe upwards in front of her. Decent speed (15f) with a decent hitbox. Notable for how far in front of you it hits. On hit, the opponent flies diagonally away from her. On Counter Hit, causes an untechable wall bounce that you can combo after. It's easy to jump over, though, and since it's super armor the opponent can OMC hits against it or cancel to their own FA. While it's quite good, you should resist the urge to spam it.



Skill Attacks

Guillotine Axe

Two hit axe slam, second hit must be blocked high. [Bracketed damage] for second hit is applied if the first hit does not connect. A good combo ender as well as a strong standing overhead you can use Asterius to combo after. Causes a soft, techable knockdown.


A Version : Fastest version, lowest damage.


B Version : Slower, but higher damage.


SB version : Special cancellable, though unlike Labrys our only ground special move is Guillotine Axe. Can be comboed through if cancelled to Titanomachia as well. Can also be canceled into Furious Action.

Guillotine Aerial

j.214 A/B

Version Damage Guard Cancel Startup Active Recovery Static Diff Attribute Invul Hitbox

SB 475×2, 570[760] (940) All, H, All UO 12 2 (4) until landing, 6 29 -3[+4] (Head+Body)×2, Body - Click!

Aerial axe slam. Spins in place for a hit, then slams downward. Slam must be blocked high. Canceling with OMC before hitting the ground allows for some very trick mixups, cancelling last hit to Titanomachia is useful in certain combos or setups. Final hit deals extra damage and blockstun if travelling a great enough distance before hitting the opponent, as well as causing a large groundbounce you can easily combo off of. Values in [brackets] are for this stronger version.


A version comes out fastest.


B version comes out slowest.


SB version : Very fast and safe on block, with the extended fall version granting advantage on block.

SB 1900 All - 94 6 183f total duration - Body - Click!
Earthquake 285 L - +1 1 - - Projectile - Click!

Asterius raises its hands, then hits the ground with both fists. Floorbounces, but is air techable. One frame after coming out, causes an earthquake that hits the entire ground LOW. Earthquake will not combo if they're hit by the fists, but will certainly still hit if they block the fists high.


C version : Regular Knockdown


D version : Regular Knockdown


SB version : A bit more untechable time on floorbounce. Full autoguard, except against supers.


Titanomachia: Floorbounce is significantly floatier than normal; combos into Titanomachia Finish on its own.

Flame of Hades Persona Required

236C/D

Asterius charges up and shoots a laser from his mouth, creating a pillar of fire at the point where it hits the ground, which blows the enemy upwards. The laser itself hits the enemy back into the pillar, but if it's done too close to the wall, the pillar is formed off-screen, so it can't damage the enemy. Effects will obscure Shadow Labrys, and she's almost impossible to see behind the pillar.


C version : Fastest beam startup.


D version : Beam starts up slower, but Asterius recovers fastest.


SB version : Slowest in both measures, but full autoguard, except against supers.


Titanomachia : As in D version, but attack comes out very quickly. Pillar combos into Titanomachia Finish on its own if the combo included a Fatal Counter.

SB 0, 760×5 (2280) Grab - 35 8 - - Grab - Click!

Asterius goes underground, then quickly charges at the enemy, swallows them, then spits them out upwards. Opponent is ejected 89 frames after being eaten. If hit on this frame by All-out Attack, they're treated as though standing and All-out Rush can be performed. Other attacks consider the opponent as airborne.


C version : Short range.


D version : Whiffs up close but blows opponent higher upwards. Can be followed up in the corner.


SB version : Faster Asterius initiation, but has the same range as the C version. Full autoguard, except against supers.


Titanomachia : As in C version, but slower to activate.

Asterius gives a huge side punch to the enemy, hitting the camera in the process. A generic super combo finisher. But note, while Shadow Labrys is invuln, Asterius only has "Autoguard against everything but supers."


C Version : More commonly used version. Fast and useful for positional sniping.


D Version : Asterius glows red, deals slightly higher damage but is slower.

During the super freeze, Shadow Labrys can input a string of up to three commands for Asterius. Afterwards, Asterius will perform the commands and end it with a full-screen attack that sets the area around itself ablaze with dark fire. Each special move has unique version for when done through Titanomachia; you can't use different versions of the same move separately. If no commands are inputted, then Asterius will go straight to the full-screen attack. During Titanomachia, Asterius has full autoguard, except against supers, for the entire duration. Hitstun scaling is not applied to Asterius' moves during Titanomachia.


C Version: Performs commands immediately.


D Version: Before performing commands, teleports behind opponent, slightly delaying activation of the first move.
