'''Lupinus''' <br/> '''『ルピナスー』'''
  
Lupinus is a member of the earth union military who wants to use the endless power of the chaos code to get senpai to notice her.
+
A special agent of the Earth Military Union. She got assigned to watch over Hikaru by her superiors, which is great for her because she can try to get senpai to notice her now.
  
Lupinus has really strong movement options and good range thanks to her extendo arm. She can run away very easily and force the opponent to come in on her terms. If she takes wall cling she gets one of the strongest corner mix-ups in the game. That all being said, lupinus has some of the worst defensive options in the game and often has to rely on using her strong movement options to avoid mix-up and pressure situations.
+
== Playstyle ==
 +
'''Health:''' 29000
 +
'''<br>Stun:''' 90
  
=Run vs Step=
+
Lupinus' playstyle can be best described as high mobility and high space control, with a command dash to help close the distance and command throws to crack open people at close range.
  
'''Run'''
+
Though her normals and specials are a little on the slow side, they let her cover a broad variety of angles and ranges--she has strong and useful tools in her kit for anti-air, air-to-air, and air-to-ground. Generally speaking, she can engage at her leisure, and has respectable damage output and corner carry to match. She has a fairly high conversion rate at close and mid range, too, and she has a strong corner mixup tool with her 4/6BD Extra Special (wallcling), in addition to a powerful pressure tool in her 214214K (Claymore).
Lupinus has one of the faster runs, and that extra mobility is nice, but honestly she doesn't need it. What she does need though, are midscreen combos, and microdashes help out there a lot. This is the more common choice among Lupinus players.
 
  
'''Step'''
+
The main difficulties in Lupinus' playstyle come from her lack of defensive options. As noted earlier, her normals are somewhat slow, meaning that mashing out of pressure is a tricky task, and she has limited reversal options that are mostly constrained to her Extra Moves that carry significant risk if misused. Her pressure game is also relatively lackluster without spending meter for 214214K.
Because lupinus's walk speed is so good having to commit to a step isn't a big deal, if she doesn't want to she can just walk. Her step is relatively fast and it's airborne, so you can use it to avoid grabs and possibly some lows. Most characters like step for step canceling normals into tick throws, but lupinus just has a command run so she doesn't care so much for that.
 
  
=Combos=
+
=== Mobility (Run vs. Step) ===
 +
'''Run:''' Lupinus has one of the faster runs in the game, and it tends to be more useful for helping her get midscreen combos via microdashes. Most of the time Lupinus players will use Run over Step.
  
 +
'''Step:''' Lupinus' step is relatively fast and it's airborne, so you can use it to avoid grabs and possibly some lows. Most characters like step for step canceling normals into tick throws, and while Lupinus can make use of that, the nature of her command dash means that this function isn't as useful as it is for other characters.

+
== Extra Move Selection ==
  
Corner combo using 623B. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ptv8F76pKc&t=35m01s Video example]
+
'''Specials:'''
 +
Both 4/6BD (wallcling) and 623K (neck throw) have their strong points. Carrying wallcling will give you an oppressive corner game with a variety of options to keep the opponent guessing and stressed out, while neck throw gives you a reversal option and additional command throw to break open defenses--it's also an excellent Exceed starter if you can connect with it. That said, 4/6BD is hard to utilize effectively if you're not close to the corner, and while 623K does have reversal frames it also has a long recovery time and doesn't really hit anti-air. In a general sense 623K is a better pick for matchups where you'll need a meterless reversal, while matchups where it's easier to run mixups will benefit more from taking 4/6BD.
  
'''Corner j.D > 5A > 5C > 623B > 2A > 5C > sjc > j.A > j.B > j.C > land > super jump > j.C > j.C > land > super jump > j.C > j.C > land > super jump > j.C > j.D > j.214C > exceed > 63214B > 236236P > chaos shift > 5D > 63214B > 236236P > chaos shift > 5C > 63214B > 6321463214P > 63214P > 236236P'''
+
'''Supers:''' 236236K (snatcher) is a an anti-air super that does a lot of damage, while 236236P (bionic arm/Raijin) is a rushing dash punch. Taking 236236K gives you a powerful anti-air attack, while 236236P has decent horizontal reach, and some invul (moreso with the C version). The downside to 23623K is that it is completely useless against grounded enemies and doesn't have wide horizontal reach per se, while 236236P is a little trickier to set up loops with despite the distance it travels. If you prefer high damage and air control, take 236236K; for corner carry and slightly more flexible reversal targeting, take 236236P.
  
Variation of the above that goes into exceed
+
In a general sense, Lupinus almost never wants to take two specials for her Extra Moves. Though their usages vary, both of her super moves are good enough to merit carrying one of them because of her high conversion rate for Exceed combos. Between 4/6BD and 623K, 4/6BD generally sees more use since Lupinus has strong enough corner carry that it's possible to make good use of it in most matchups. However, as stated earlier, matchups where she needs a meterless reversal may warrant taking 623K instead. It's largely up to you.

It can also link into 5A which can make confirms easier if your close. Get used to it, and try not to leave off on 2B since it's at a disadvantage on block.

|description=Lupinus spins forward then does a sweep. One of the weirdest buttons in Lupinus' arsenal, but also one of the strongest. On any hit it'll link to an air hit 5A, allowing for a beefy followup combo. Its long startup makes it highly unlikely that you're going to confirm into this, but that's perfectly fine for a few reasons. It has an extremely strong low profile and is plus on block, so it's actually a relatively low risk button as long as you have the time to get it out.

On top of being some of the strongest combo filler out there, this thing has the goofiest hitbox this side of Cerberus jD. It's a bit on the slow side, but if it has time to come out, you should be surprised if it loses. jC functions as an air-to-air at all heights as well as easily hitting air-to-ground from an IAD, and if it counterhits on air hit, it allows a followup no matter how high the opponent is.

Standard high jab. Misses on crouching block, but will connect on a croucher in hitstun. Sees a lot of use in combos, and it's a strong move to use on offense, but just be aware it might miss and use 2A instead when that's important.

|description=Lupinus runs forward and attempts to snatch the opponent. On hit, she dives to the ground with them and rolls forward. Blockable and punishable, but punishing it is tricky so if an opponent isn't ready for it, you might get out for free. This is a critical combo tool for Lupinus, and if it slams just right into the corner, you can land a 2A from it and continue the combo. Is probably the best linker you have for 95% of your Exceed combos due to the range and the corner carry.

|description=Command run. Cancelable to all specials and looks like her 62314B except with some afterimages; the cancel window is relatively early in the move so you can brake very, very early. You'll mostly use this very sparingly as a mixup, but often to close the distance to combo into EX 41236K or even 623K if you chose it as an extra special. A notable quirk of this move is that super cancelling it only costs the normal 1 bar to use the super, as opposed to most specials requiring 2 bars to super cancel.

Muay thai shin kick. One of Lupinus' core normals on offense, links back to a 5A on hit. You might not press it on its own, favoring a 2A instead to start a string, but even if you do it's not bad for that.

|description=Lupinus swings her hand up briefly. Acts more like a feint than an actual move, but it has a number of uses: 1) Meter build (you still get meter for using it, and it's fast), 2) Extending combos in the corner by canceling 5C into 236C to lessen recovery and link back into a 5A, 3) Easy way to get unscaled damage for a super cancel or during an Exceed combo and 4) A fast way to brake during 63214D, especially if you don't want to commit to a special move and risk getting blocked or caught out.

Standard low kick. This is an important starter for Lupinus since it hits low, but needing to chain to a C normal to follow up makes confirming a little tricky. Get used to it, and try not to leave off on 2B since it's at a disadvantage on block.

Strangely, this is Lupinus' go-to sweep button. It's a very long range sweep, though, and is just as good as 5C for controlling space, as well as for confirming from since its launch height is massive. It has a lot of recovery though, so try not to miss.

Lupinus does a flash kick like they teach you in the military, but she's smart so she stays on the ground. Sees some use as an anti-air but its hitbox isn't great, so don't push it blindly and think carefully about which approaches you try to shut down with this.

|description=Lupinus walldives at the opponent; the angle is adjustable if you hold 6 during the startup. You can combo off the wallslam at the end. Generally speaking it's kind of difficult to set up combos for this move, and it scales a lot. You can get more reliable and bigger damage from just doing Exceed loops, but with wallstick from 236A~K or the right Exceed combo setup it's possible to try finishing off with this move.

Lupinus spins forward then does a sweep. One of the weirdest buttons in Lupinus' arsenal, but also one of the strongest. On any hit it'll link to an air hit 5A, allowing for a beefy followup combo. Its long startup makes it highly unlikely that you're going to confirm into this, but that's perfectly fine for a few reasons. It has an extremely strong low profile and is plus on block, so it's actually a relatively low risk button as long as you have the time to get it out.

Air knife hand. Not really too useful outside of combos and for a fast air-to-air. If you don't have to push it, you'd rather not.
+
When playing the ground game, your primary poking tool for the midrange is 5C--it can't be thrown out all the time but it has good reach and cancels well into 236A. 5A and 5B are also useful, but have to be used a little more carefully, as 5A tends to whiff on crouchers and 5B has good range but is a little slow. 236A itself is also an option as long as it doesn't whiff, but your main goal is to hit with the tip if you're going to be using it as an irritant.
  
|-
+
For anti-air options, you have 3C and 214P to snatch people that are trying to approach carelessly from the air.
| width="" |''' <font size = "3">j.B - </font>  ''' Overhead. Cancelable.
 
  
Horizontal kick. Works pretty ok for an air-to-air when you're slightly above the opponent, but mostly just used in combos and after IADs since you can follow up with jD before landing.
+
When in the air yourself, you have j.B and j.D as ground-to-air or air-to-air options, mostly for opponents at about your height and if you want to be able to continue a combo with a jump cancel. j.C is also an incredibly useful button in general, though, and you should never discount it as an option as you're falling down or going for an air-to-air; if it hits low enough you'll have a lot of hitstun to play with. you However, if you want to play from mid-range, j.214P is your best bet. j.214A/EX are the air-to-air options--j.214A will give you and the opponent some space but EX will put you close to them and let you stay in, possibly even convert to a combo if you're close enough to the corner. j.214C is the air-to-ground option, and if it hits will also put you in a cozy position.
  
|-
+
If you want or need to close a gap quickly, picking Run gives you a good, quick run, but you also have 63214D as a gap-closer that can come off of any normal or even be used in neutral with fakeouts via 236C.
| width="" style="background:#E8E8E8;"| ''' <font size = "3">j.C - </font>  ''' Overhead. Cancelable.
 
  
Lupinus swings her arms upward in a half-circle. This normal is Lupinus. On top of being some of the strongest combo filler out there, this thing has the goofiest hitbox this side of Cerberus jD. It's a bit on the slow side, but if it has time to come out, you should be surprised if it loses. jC functions as an air-to-air at all heights as well as easily hitting air-to-ground from an IAD, and if it counterhits on air hit, it allows a followup no matter how high the opponent is.

+
:The "j.C, delay j.C" used here is one rep of Lupinus' j.C loop, which is a vital part of her combo theory in the corner. You press j.C on your way up, wait a little bit, then press j.C as you come down. j.214C will leave the you and the opponent close to each other and near the corner, so if you've carried in 4/6BD then this gives you an opportunity to run wallcling oki if you so desire. If you have max meter, then Exceed the last hit of j.214C, go into 63214B, and supercancel from there.
  
Lupinus makes an arcing swipe with her arm at a 45 degree angle. This is another strong AA tool for Lupinus as it's air unblockable and has a massive hitbox. It tends to whiff on grounded opponents, so use it more reactively than proactively.

The main use of this is for the really lazy combo from 2D, but you can also do a cute frametrap from a blocked 2D with it. Since this is cancellable, you can safely superjump and try to put on more pressure even if they block. You can do this target combo even on whiff so it can also be used to deter whiff punishing of 2D.

Anti-air grapple arm. The light version is blockable, but the heavy version isn't. Neither version will connect on a grounded opponent, so it's a risky move to throw out, but still pretty valuable in neutral since it allows Lupinus an extra way to deal with a lot of airborne shenanigans that might be difficult for other characters.

One of Lupinus' most unique tools in neutral, as well as a combo staple. The light version is horizontal and can cover space well if done immediately from a jump.

Pretty standard command grab. Can be comboed into. Really punishable on whiff. On the flip side, it's pretty rewarding on hit. The normal version ends in a launcher hit which can easily be super cancelled to either extra super to tack on some damage.

Lupinus runs forward and attempts to snatch the opponent. Blockable and punishable, but punishing it is tricky so if an opponent isn't ready for it, you might get off scot free. This is a critical combo tool for Lupinus, and if it slams just right into the corner, you can land a 2A from it and continue the combo.

Command run. Cancellable to all specials and looks like her 62314B except with some afterimages. You'll mostly use this very sparingly as a mixup, but often to close the distance during a combo into EX command grab. A notable quirk of this move is that super cancelling it only costs the normal 1 bar to use the super, as opposed to most specials requiring 2 bars to super cancel.

Omega Red arm. This pulls in, and is negative enough on block to be punishable, but as with many Lupinus things, punishing can be tricky. On hit you'll likely be using a followup with either P or K.

The P followup does an uppercut, and is used to maintain your close distance to the opponent as well as for damage. Super cancelling this followup is particularly strong.
 
The K followup makes a projectile ball that does a lot of hits and sends the opponent towards the wall. If they hit the wall they'll wallsplat and you can follow it up. You can also push K again to kick the ball forward and get an extra hit that causes wallslam.

Lupinus strikes a ~cool pose~. This special doesn't seem to do anything else, but since you did a special, you get the meter for doing a special. This is a really good way to build meter when you don't have anything else to do, and the threat of Lupinus building all that meter can keep opponents from playing from afar. It's also useful for delaying during combos, and as a super cancel to unscale supers during exceed.

Wall cling. Has 4 followups depending on stick direction. Notably, wall clinging directly next to the opponent can push them out of the corner, allowing you to mix up further and mess with their inputs and attempts to anti-air. Often, an opponent trying to aggressively stop the wall cling will just whiff and die. All of the followups are pretty risky to whiff, but each has to be dealt with differently, so if you mix it up and choose according to how your opponent tries to deal with them, you can keep yourself fairly safe. This move also has defensive uses since it gives you a huge amount of control in a post-air tech situation.

* 8 followup - Lupinus spins upward and can follow up with a grab at any point by pressing P.

* 2 followup - Lupinus sinks to the floor quickly, then goes for a running grab that will hit a grounded opponent. This can be stably followed up with a 5A if it hits near the corner. The portion that falls to the ground appears to have invun, but Lupinus becomes vulnerable right before the grab comes out, so if your opponent mashes hard enough they can counterhit you, but sometimes they just whiff and die.
 
 
 
* 4 followup - Lupinus does a diving grab at a steep angle. This whiffs crouchers, but grabs airborne opponents and is very likely to give a followup on hit. Additionally it seems to connect against any grounded button, regardless of if the opponent is crouching or not. You can get a lot of mileage out of this against an opponent who likes to jump or otherwise challenge the wall cling since it will beat just about any option that beats the 2 followup.

CC Profile Lupinus.png

Story

Lupinus
『ルピナスー』

A special agent of the Earth Military Union. She got assigned to watch over Hikaru by her superiors, which is great for her because she can try to get senpai to notice her now.

Playstyle

Health: 29000
Stun:
90

Lupinus' playstyle can be best described as high mobility and high space control, with a command dash to help close the distance and command throws to crack open people at close range.

Though her normals and specials are a little on the slow side, they let her cover a broad variety of angles and ranges--she has strong and useful tools in her kit for anti-air, air-to-air, and air-to-ground. Generally speaking, she can engage at her leisure, and has respectable damage output and corner carry to match. She has a fairly high conversion rate at close and mid range, too, and she has a strong corner mixup tool with her 4/6BD Extra Special (wallcling), in addition to a powerful pressure tool in her 214214K (Claymore).

The main difficulties in Lupinus' playstyle come from her lack of defensive options. As noted earlier, her normals are somewhat slow, meaning that mashing out of pressure is a tricky task, and she has limited reversal options that are mostly constrained to her Extra Moves that carry significant risk if misused. Her pressure game is also relatively lackluster without spending meter for 214214K.

Mobility (Run vs. Step)

Run: Lupinus has one of the faster runs in the game, and it tends to be more useful for helping her get midscreen combos via microdashes. Most of the time Lupinus players will use Run over Step.

Step: Lupinus' step is relatively fast and it's airborne, so you can use it to avoid grabs and possibly some lows. Most characters like step for step canceling normals into tick throws, and while Lupinus can make use of that, the nature of her command dash means that this function isn't as useful as it is for other characters.

Extra Move Selection

Specials: Both 4/6BD (wallcling) and 623K (neck throw) have their strong points. Carrying wallcling will give you an oppressive corner game with a variety of options to keep the opponent guessing and stressed out, while neck throw gives you a reversal option and additional command throw to break open defenses--it's also an excellent Exceed starter if you can connect with it. That said, 4/6BD is hard to utilize effectively if you're not close to the corner, and while 623K does have reversal frames it also has a long recovery time and doesn't really hit anti-air. In a general sense 623K is a better pick for matchups where you'll need a meterless reversal, while matchups where it's easier to run mixups will benefit more from taking 4/6BD.

Supers: 236236K (snatcher) is a an anti-air super that does a lot of damage, while 236236P (bionic arm/Raijin) is a rushing dash punch. Taking 236236K gives you a powerful anti-air attack, while 236236P has decent horizontal reach, and some invul (moreso with the C version). The downside to 23623K is that it is completely useless against grounded enemies and doesn't have wide horizontal reach per se, while 236236P is a little trickier to set up loops with despite the distance it travels. If you prefer high damage and air control, take 236236K; for corner carry and slightly more flexible reversal targeting, take 236236P.

In a general sense, Lupinus almost never wants to take two specials for her Extra Moves. Though their usages vary, both of her super moves are good enough to merit carrying one of them because of her high conversion rate for Exceed combos. Between 4/6BD and 623K, 4/6BD generally sees more use since Lupinus has strong enough corner carry that it's possible to make good use of it in most matchups. However, as stated earlier, matchups where she needs a meterless reversal may warrant taking 623K instead. It's largely up to you.

Standard high jab. Misses on crouching block, but will connect on a croucher in hitstun. Sees a lot of use in combos, and it's a strong move to use on offense, but just be aware it might miss and use 2A instead when that's important.

5B

Muay thai shin kick. One of Lupinus' core normals on offense, links back to a 5A on hit. You might not press it on its own, favoring a 2A instead to start a string, but even if you do it's not bad for that.

5C

- - High/Low - - - - Yes Stagger

Big horizontal swipe. This is one of Lupinus' core footsies buttons as it controls a lot of horizontal space. Since her D buttons are so janky, this and 2C are your primary cancellable buttons. Delayed cancels are A-OK so get used to confirming from this.

5D
5D

- - High/Low - - - - No Launch

Lupinus does a flash kick like they teach you in the military, but she's smart so she stays on the ground. Sees some use as an anti-air but its hitbox isn't great, so don't push it blindly and think carefully about which approaches you try to shut down with this.

2A

2B
2B
Damage Stun Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Advantage (block) Cancelable Counterhit Properties
- - High/Low - - - - Yes -

Standard low kick. This is an important starter for Lupinus since it hits low, but needing to chain to a C normal to follow up makes confirming a little tricky. It can also link into 5A which can make confirms easier if your close. Get used to it, and try not to leave off on 2B since it's at a disadvantage on block.

Strangely, this is Lupinus' go-to sweep button. It's a very long range sweep, though, and is just as good as 5C for controlling space, as well as for confirming from since its launch height is massive. It has a lot of recovery though, so try not to miss.

Lupinus spins forward then does a sweep. One of the weirdest buttons in Lupinus' arsenal, but also one of the strongest. On any hit it'll link to an air hit 5A, allowing for a beefy followup combo. Its long startup makes it highly unlikely that you're going to confirm into this, but that's perfectly fine for a few reasons. It has an extremely strong low profile and is plus on block, so it's actually a relatively low risk button as long as you have the time to get it out.

Lupinus swings her arms upward in a half-circle. This normal is Lupinus. On top of being some of the strongest combo filler out there, this thing has the goofiest hitbox this side of Cerberus jD. It's a bit on the slow side, but if it has time to come out, you should be surprised if it loses. jC functions as an air-to-air at all heights as well as easily hitting air-to-ground from an IAD, and if it counterhits on air hit, it allows a followup no matter how high the opponent is.

Horizontal kick that's very similar to jB. It's not jC but you can chain it from jC and it's good in combos. Sometimes it's better than jC as an air-to-ground because it's faster.

The main use of this is for the really lazy combo from 2D, but you can also do a cute frametrap from a blocked 2D with it. Since this is cancelable, you can safely superjump and try to put on more pressure even if they block. You can do this target combo even on whiff so it can also be used to deter whiff punishing of 2D.

Anti-air grapple arm. Used the most often in combos, especially if you happen to get a 3C on someone jumping at you. No versions of 214P connect on grounded opponents, but they're all valuable in neutral because of how they control aerial space. A and C versions are both very good Exceed starters.

Lupinus runs forward and attempts to snatch the opponent. On hit, she dives to the ground with them and rolls forward. Blockable and punishable, but punishing it is tricky so if an opponent isn't ready for it, you might get out for free. This is a critical combo tool for Lupinus, and if it slams just right into the corner, you can land a 2A from it and continue the combo. Is probably the best linker you have for 95% of your Exceed combos due to the range and the corner carry.

Command run. Cancelable to all specials and looks like her 62314B except with some afterimages; the cancel window is relatively early in the move so you can brake very, very early. You'll mostly use this very sparingly as a mixup, but often to close the distance to combo into EX 41236K or even 623K if you chose it as an extra special. A notable quirk of this move is that super cancelling it only costs the normal 1 bar to use the super, as opposed to most specials requiring 2 bars to super cancel.

67th Gata - 2nd Shiki = Lightning (Raiden). This followup makes a projectile ball that does a lot of hits and sends the opponent towards the wall. If they hit the wall, they'll wallsplat and you can follow it up. Best used when already in the corner to get best setups for j.C loops.

236A~K~K - - High/Low - - - - - -

67th Gata - 1st to 2nd Shiki = Lightning Punch (Shiden). This kicks the ball from Raiden forward to get an extra hit that causes wallslam. If you've already put the opponent in the corner, don't use this move, as your combo potential is way stronger from Raiden. However, if you're trying to push the opponent further toward the corner from midscreen, this is a good option.

Lupinus swings her hand up briefly. Acts more like a feint than an actual move, but it has a number of uses: 1) Meter build (you still get meter for using it, and it's fast), 2) Extending combos in the corner by canceling 5C into 236C to lessen recovery and link back into a 5A, 3) Easy way to get unscaled damage for a super cancel or during an Exceed combo and 4) A fast way to brake during 63214D, especially if you don't want to commit to a special move and risk getting blocked or caught out.

Lupinus does a jumping roll forward or backward depending on the direction you use to start the move. If she gets to the wall during the roll, she'll cling to it and slowly slide down. From here, she has 5 different options to pull off.

4BD - - High/Low - - - - - -

1st of the 43rd Shiki - Blue Falcon (Ao Hayabusa). Lupinus does a diving grab at a steep angle. This whiffs crouchers, but grabs airborne opponents and is very likely to give a followup on hit. Additionally it seems to connect against any grounded button, regardless of if the opponent is crouching or not. You can get a lot of mileage out of this against an opponent who likes to jump or otherwise challenge the wall cling since it will beat just about any option that beats the 2 followup.

2BD - - High/Low - - - - - -

2nd of the 43rd Shiki - White Falcon (Shiro Hayabusa). Lupinus sinks to the floor quickly, then goes for a running grab that will hit a grounded opponent. This can be stably followed up with a 5A if it hits near the corner. The portion that falls to the ground appears to have invun, but Lupinus becomes vulnerable right before the grab comes out, so if your opponent mashes hard enough they can counterhit you, but sometimes they just whiff and die.

6BD - - High/Low - - - - - -

3rd of the 43rd Shiki - Red Falcon (Aka Hayabusa). Lupinus jumps off of the wall, resetting her air options and putting her back to a normal jumping state. This still takes some time, so don't get counterhit.

8BD, then P - - High/Low - - - - - -

4th of the 43rd Shiki - Yellow Falcon (Ki Hayabusa). Lupinus spins upward and can follow up with a grab at any point by pressing P. This is the most obvious followup, and can often be punished on whiff, but the grab followup isn't avoidable any particular way like the other grab followups so the opponent has to have already escaped the situation.

5BD - - High/Low - - - - - -

Lupinus detaches from the wall and falls straight down. You have no air options aside from normals while falling.

Second and final followup to Berserk. To get max damage on this move you have to land a just frame, and unless you're sure it's going to kill it's probably better just to pick up from the first followup and combo from that instead. That said, if you do land the just frame and the opponent is near the corner, they will get wallsplatted.

Lupinus walldives at the opponent; the angle is adjustable if you hold 6 during the startup. You can combo off the wallslam at the end. Generally speaking it's kind of difficult to set up combos for this move, and it scales a lot. You can get more reliable and bigger damage from just doing Exceed loops, but with wallstick from 236A~K or the right Exceed combo setup it's possible to try finishing off with this move.

Strategy

Neutral

When playing the ground game, your primary poking tool for the midrange is 5C--it can't be thrown out all the time but it has good reach and cancels well into 236A. 5A and 5B are also useful, but have to be used a little more carefully, as 5A tends to whiff on crouchers and 5B has good range but is a little slow. 236A itself is also an option as long as it doesn't whiff, but your main goal is to hit with the tip if you're going to be using it as an irritant.

For anti-air options, you have 3C and 214P to snatch people that are trying to approach carelessly from the air.

When in the air yourself, you have j.B and j.D as ground-to-air or air-to-air options, mostly for opponents at about your height and if you want to be able to continue a combo with a jump cancel. j.C is also an incredibly useful button in general, though, and you should never discount it as an option as you're falling down or going for an air-to-air; if it hits low enough you'll have a lot of hitstun to play with. you However, if you want to play from mid-range, j.214P is your best bet. j.214A/EX are the air-to-air options--j.214A will give you and the opponent some space but EX will put you close to them and let you stay in, possibly even convert to a combo if you're close enough to the corner. j.214C is the air-to-ground option, and if it hits will also put you in a cozy position.

If you want or need to close a gap quickly, picking Run gives you a good, quick run, but you also have 63214D as a gap-closer that can come off of any normal or even be used in neutral with fakeouts via 236C.

Combos

Midscreen

  • 5A 5B delay 5A 5B 5C 236A~A
Sets up a damage combo midscreen by allowing for a supercancel after 236A~A, especially if you carry 236236K as an extra super. If you have max meter, you can Exceed cancel 236A~A and use 63214B to hit and carry the opponent to the corner.
  • 5A 5B delay 5A 5B 5C 63214B
Primarily a corner carry setup. Can use Exceed to extend the combo.

Near Corner

  • 5A 5B delay 5A 5B 5C 236A~B j.C delay j.C rejump j.A j.C double jump j.A j.B j.D j.214C
The "j.C, delay j.C" used here is one rep of Lupinus' j.C loop, which is a vital part of her combo theory in the corner. You press j.C on your way up, wait a little bit, then press j.C as you come down. j.214C will leave the you and the opponent close to each other and near the corner, so if you've carried in 4/6BD then this gives you an opportunity to run wallcling oki if you so desire. If you have max meter, then Exceed the last hit of j.214C, go into 63214B, and supercancel from there.
  • 5A 5B delay 5A 5B 5C 236A~B run 3C 214A
If you happen to be close enough to the corner for 236A~B wallstick but not close enough to get a j.C, then this combo works just fine to convert instead.
