Minase Nayuki (awake)


Minase Nayuki (awake) (水瀬 名雪(起) is a straightforward, rushdown-oriented character whose main features are her very fast dash and high damaging combos. She has a few decent moves to play footsies with, but her main goal will be to take advantage of her dash to find openings and catch the opponent off-guard. She doesn’t have much in the way of extended pressure, and relies mostly on staggers and far-reaching lows to force respect from the opponent. However on a good knockdown she has time to set up her snowbunny super, similar to Rose orbs from Street Fighter, which allows her to stay on top of the opponent for much longer. For breaking defense she has a decent standing overhead and throw, both leading to a potential left/right mixup afterwards. As her gameplan and combos are both easy, Nayuki is a character well suited for players new to the game.

Nayuki is one of the heroines of Kanon, a visual novel produced by Key in 1999. She is Yuiichi's cousin, childhood friend, and has always been in love with him. Nayuki is the daughter of Akiko, and is also classmates with her friend Kaori. She is an extremely fast runner and is the captain of the school's track team because of this. On the other hand she is a very heavy sleeper, with a massive collection of alarm clocks that are able to wake up Yuuichi in the adjacent room, but do not seem to work on her at all. Nayuki really enjoys strawberry jam and strawberry sundaes, but is completely terrified at the mere mention of her mother's "special" jam. During Kanon, Yuuichi is warmly supported by Nayuki as he tries to help the people he cares about, but as he starts to remember what happened with Nayuki 7 years ago...

Character-Specific Notes

  • Nayuki is able to air jump once, and air dash/backstep once. Once Nayuki has air dashed/backstepped, she cannot perform any more air jumps until she lands or air recovers.

180 Low 6 / 6.33 2.66 / 3 6 +2 +1 -

Standing, spammable low kick. While it isn't the fastest, this is a staple in Nayuki's repetroire of normals. It does not sport much frame advantage on block, but it's enough to setup frame traps or tick throws. The kick itself actually has a good hitbox that is a decent distance away from Nayuki, so it serves as a nice poke that can be convertible from its range as well. Unfortunately, this move being a standing low means that we cannot use this move to anti-air after RGing someone in the air. Overall, a good move. Learn to love it.

EFZ Nayuki 5B.png

400 Ground 8 3 12 +2 0 -

Nayuki kicks the opponent's side.

  • Naturally combos into f5b if B is pressed again.

This move is primarily a combo tool, as you will often use this to catch the opponent in the air after the B version of V-Shaped Thrust, or in the corner to catch characters after a successful air chain. Jump cancelable. Rather quick for a B normal, and does have its usage in pressure to check for lower body invulnerable moves on wake up.

For Recoil Guard battles, this is one of your two 8 frame normals (the other is 5C). If spaced correctly, this can beat some 4f and 5f normals on crouch RG, and will beat anything 6f and onwards. If Recoil Guarded, this move can go into f5B if you predict that a low will come afterwards.

450 Ground 15 4 9 +4 +2~+5 -

Nayuki does a small skip and kicks the opponent with a stretched out leg. This move also comes out if you press B again after 2B or close 5B.

  • Lower body invulnerable 8f~24f

One of two Nayuki's plus on-block normals, and a great one at that. While it is slow, this move has excellent utility. Along with slightly moving her forward, this move can hop over a great amount of lows if timed right, making it great for trumping most 2A mashes and an excellent pressure tool overall. Nayuki is not considered airborne during this move, so she can special cancel this into anything and will naturally combo into 5C or 2C.

Excellent utility for neutral and Recoil Guard battles due to lower body invulnerability, but often the target of Recoil Guard. If Recoil Guarded, this can go into 5C or 2C, but often times it might just be best to Recoil Guard back.

EFZ Nayuki 5C.png
Damage Guard Startup ¹ ² ³ Active Recovery Adv Hit Adv Block Cancel
580 Ground 8 8 20 -4 -6 -

Nayuki does a soccer kick and blows the opponent back. Fairly decent move with multiple usages. This is the closest to an anti-air normal you will get, but will blow the opponent back rather far. While this move is jump cancelable, you won't be able to convert off of this midscreen. However, you can convert from this if you are close to the corner. Used in optimal combos frequently. 5C unfortunately cannot be cancelled into 2C, but it can be special or super cancelled.

In Recoil Guard battles, this is one of your two 8 frame moves. If spaced correctly, this can beat up a good chunk of 4f and 5f moves after crouch RG.


EFZ Nayuki 2A.png

185 Low 5 3 9 -1 -2 -

A crouching, spammable low kick to the opponent's feet. This move is slightly faster than 5A, but holds no advantage. Has very little knockback on block, so you can throw out a couple of these on block without too much fear. In conjunction with 5A, 2A is another one of your staple normals, and works quite well with 5A's block advantage. This normal also has a great use if you use this while carrying the momentum from a dash.

380 Low 6 10 6 +1 -1 -

Nayuki stretches out her leg to catch the opponent's ankles.

  • Naturally combos into f.5B if B is pressed again.

A staple normal in Nayuki's moveset due to its range. This move is VERY active, so much so that it can be plus if meatied. Has an excellent stagger window, so you can delay into f5B, 5C, 2C, or any of her specials.

Excellent in Recoil Guard battles due to good startup and range, and the ability to cancel into f5B. Can beat the majority of 4f normals after Recoil Guard.

600 Low 11 16 13 / -6 -

Nayuki does a baseball slide and trips the opponent.

  • 2f full invuln on startup.

Nayuki's sweep is one of her stronger normals, but one of her slowest as well. On the upside, this is a slide, so it moves her forward. This not makes not only an excellent poke, but an integral hit confirm, as it can be special and super cancelled. Because it is a C button, it cannot be cancelled into other normals. While this move does grant Nayuki a low profile which can dodge certain moves, she can still be clipped by some moves on recovery. Funnily enough, this move has 2 frames at the beginning where she is fully invulnerable. This frame might save you sometimes, but don't count on it.

Despite it being 11 frames startup, this move can be decent to throw out in Recoil Guard battles, but often times should be used as a last resort if no other normal can reach. If this is Recoil Guarded, you either have to Recoil Guard back or chance it on a DP.

180 High, Air 5 18 4 / / -

Flying knee! j.A is a versatile air normal that can be used in a couple of ways. Despite its short hitbox, it can be used to intercept the opponent air-to-air. It can also be used to start pressure from an air dash, and able to be canceled into either j.B (what should mostly be done) or j.C. If you only do a single press, this move is actually fairly active for a while, but not to the extent of other similar normals. Due to this, you could use this as a way to catch air techs.

390 High, Air 7 10 10 / / -

Nayuki does the most generic jumping shoto move in the game. Thankfully, this has the same properties of most shoto jumping medium kicks, where she can cross up with it! This is easily Nayuki's best air normal. You will be using this for jump-ins, crossups, combo filler, air-to-air... just about anything, really. Is cancelable into j.C, which is nice for combo filler or air-to-ground purposes.

EFZ Nayuki j5C.png

550 High, Air 9 4 24 / / -

Nayuki does 5C but in the air. Like 5C, this knocks back quite a long distance, but it does have its uses. As usual, this move is used for combo filler, and can be used to setup either a V-Shaped Thrust (236C) or Surface-To-Air Freezer (236236x). This move excels more in the corner during BIC combos, as this move along with 5C will rack up a nice amount of damage. Unfortunately, it doesn't work too well air-to-air, but the rare times won't do you any favor. This is also your option select button for air throw.


EFZ Nayuki 66A.png
Damage Guard Startup ¹ ² ³ Active Recovery Adv Hit Adv Block Cancel
220 Low 6 3 6 +2 +1 -

Primarily a pressure tool to reset pressure if pushed back enough, but has limited combo usage. On hit, this cancels into 623A. This can also be used after ICing 236A to convert into a combo.

Often the target of Recoil Guard. Unfortunately, there are little options after dash moves beyond special and super cancelling. Consider getting ready to Recoil Guard back.

EFZ Nayuki 66B.png
Damage Guard Startup ¹ ² ³ Active Recovery Adv Hit Adv Block Cancel
400 Ground 8 3 12 +2 0 -

Primarily a combo tool, but not the best for pressure strings. Jump, special, and super cancelable on hit. The hit advantage is just enough to go into 236236x. Stringing together 66Bs in BIC combos requires you to slightly delay them from one another, as the opponent will go upwards with each hit.

EFZ Nayuki 66C.png

650 Ground 8 3 25 / -6 -

An excellent launcher from her quick dash. 66C in neutral is something to be respected, as it is ICable and thus able to be converted into combos. Despite being -6, it can be relatively safe if you hit this on the tip. Is both special and super cancelable.

Running knee. This move can go under lows, but for the most part, it’s not that impressive. Extremely negative on block, but is special and super cancelable. On block, consider using 214A. On hit, this can combo into 623A.

Overhead. Cancelable into 236A or 236C for a second mix up provided that the opponent does not RG it. While this move would be excellent for snow bunny mixups, this move has an astoundingly bad proration that brings the combo to 3.0 power. Use it to catch the opponent off guard or to finish a round.

Throws the opponent behind Nayuki. It’s not an impressive grab by any means, but Nayuki’s pressure is primarily strike/throw, so it’s something. This will toss the opponent quite a distance, but at the very least you can get a safe jump or basic mixup out of it. If timed properly with snow bunnies, you can throw the opponent into them and convert afterwards.

Nayuki thrusts her legs forward, hitting the opponent twice. Your bread-and-butter for combos and pressure. For the most part, all versions of the move are safe, especially considering the distance of all of them. Generally if this move is blocked, your pressure ends there. At max distance of both A and B versions, you can go for 66C to catch the opponent off guard, or attempt another V-Shaped Thrust.

21 2 23 / -3 -
  • A version:
    • Both hits are lows.
    • It's possible to pick up from 236A(2) IC into 66A 66B (juggle combo).
  • B version:
    • Hits mid.
    • Mainly used in combos.
    • The first hit can be used as an excellent poke in neutral if you IC it.
  • C version:
    • The second hit is an overhead.
    • Can anti-air, but not air unblockable. Don't count on it too much.

Ideally, this should be used for anti-air. As a wakeup option, it's honestly not that good, and the times that it does work means that the opponent did something wrong.

  • Invulnerable from frames 1-8.
  • Identical hitboxes to 623A.

Nayuki’s dragon punch. Despite it being a dragon punch, the invulnerability of it is not that impressive. However, they still function as a reliable anti-air, and with IC is fully convertible into combos.

623A can be used as an option for Recoil Guard battles, as it is one of Nayuki's few 4f moves. Converting off of this move requires you to jump afterwards. Using it as an anti-air is a little tough since it lacks invulnerability frames, but it is possible.

623B on wakeup is generally not advised, and you are considered airborne on frame 1. Provided the opponent reacts to it, they can combo you afterwards.

623C is one of two only true reversals in her arsenal besides 236236B. However, it does not knockdown the opponent.

Something to note in conjunction with her dash is that her dash makes her hurtbox slightly lower. Using this with DP makes this a bit more viable for anti-air.

Nayuki does her best toku impression and approaches with a diving kick.

Despite it looking pretty flashy, it has some niche uses. The A version can be used as a pressure extender, but unless you are willing to spend both IC and super meter, you won't get too much of a reward from this. The A version is fully active until it lands. In BIC combos, this can be used as a combo tool after 5B to lead into j.B, j.C, or 214214a. Scales pretty nicely and does a decent chunk of damage.

The B version is decent for snow bunny pressure, as it acts as yet another overhead for her. This move goes a set distance and does not track, so this can be either used as an overhead, or you can use it to crossup the opponent. Just like the A version of this move, there's no real way to convert off this move unless you dedicate your resources to making it work.

The C version is a three-part kick which does a respectable amount of damage into hard knockdown. For the most part, it's hard to justify meter usage for this move, but it does look pretty cool. One of the unfortunate things about EX Nayu-Chan Kick is that it does not have any form of invulnerability whatsoever. It can be used as a combo ender if you have IC meter available and not super. The air version has 3 frames of startup, which could be useful if someone ground Recoil Guarded your air normals, but that might have to be looked into.

Nayuki’s tatsumaki senpakyuu. This move will continue to be active until Nayuki lands, which makes it decent for crossup. All versions of the move will affect your momentum to some extent, with the weaker version doing it the least. Decent for resetting pressure in grounded blockstrings, and can go over some lows that f5b cannot. Fairly decent in RG exchanges.

214B can be used after 214214A(1) IC conversions to launch the opponents.

Nayuki kicks the air so hard that she forms a ball of ice. This can be used as a combo ender to tack extra damage at the end of either a ground or air chain. Level 1 is mostly cheap damage, but comes at the cost of not being hard knockdown and thus techable. Not invulnerable on startup.

B 600 x 6 Any 8 72 55 / - -

Does more damage and actually DOES lead into hard knockdown. On top of that, this has invulnerability, so it can be used as a costly reversal. Like level 1, this can be used as a combo ender to lead into hard knockdown, and gives more than enough time to setup Snow Bunnies if you want to. It is possible to still hit the opponent while they're in a frozen state, but reaching them is another issue entirely.

C 500 x 15 Any 8 72 55 / - -

Big damage. This doesn't offer more invulnerability, but if you want to dump your meter to guarantee a round end, go for it.

Nayuki spawns two snow bunnies that rotate around her. Upon contact, the opponent is frozen. If the opponent is hit, they are considered airborne. if the opponent breaks out of the ice, they will be either standing or crouching. A timer appears below Nayuki's health bar that slowly depletes over time, but when any bunnies hit the opponent a large chunk is taken off the timer. Once the timer reaches zero or Nayuki is hit, the super ends. The first super always spawns in the same position, but all subsequent supers start where the last super ended.

Strictly speaking, it is preferential if you want to use this super, as it is not needed for success. Used correctly however, and it bolster your pressure quite a bit! Some positives and negatives:

+ Keeps the opponent locked down, allowing your basic mixups to become slightly more viable.
+ Makes 236A, 236C, and 412B more dangerous mixup options, as one well-timed 236x or 412B will lead to a freeze.
+ Limits some of the opponents' normal use of neutral tools, as Nayuki is still quite fast.
+ Can lead into high damage combos, even from level 1.
+ Preserves IC meter to build up to BIC.
+ Can still build super meter in this state.

- Bunnies offer no form of vertical protection, so you can still be anti-aired or hit by a low.
- Expensive on upkeep, especially considering 214214x ender and usage of IC.
- Gives the opponent another thing to Recoil Guard. Great for those with command grabs.
- Some characters wakeups are still too fast to make proper utilization of it.
- Bunnies can sometimes not freeze if normal and bunny hit on the same frame.

This super can safely be setup after 2C. While it can be setup after 236C or 214214A, the opponent will often recover before you can use any form of meaningful mixup against them. In order to safely setup after both of those moves, you will need IC to cancel both into snow bunnies.

At midscreen, there are several options you can utilize to make the bunnies hit. At the most fundamental level, you can go for a high/low mixup. 236A or 236C will often do the trick, but 412B can be used as well to land a high. Outside of that, you can also go for left/rights by either airdashing over the opponent, or backdashing or backjumping into 412B to crossup.

Conversions from bunny can range from simple to complicated. The most simple conversion you can get from a frozen state is simply pushing the opponent to the corner with the rest of the bunny hits, then using 5C to air juggle into super. If you wish to further optimize, you can use 66a 623a to combo into a refreeze. There is also dash into 2A 5B to launch the opponent to go for an air chain. Ideally, you will want to go into 236B refreeze loops at all levels, and very often you will hit this in the corner. As long as you are cognizant about when bunnies spawn, the loop is rather easy.

For the most part, Nayuki's okizeme comes down to using safe jump to basic mixups in order to make herself safe from DP. Her safe jumps can come in many forms, and crossups are possible with it. The more familiar you can be with safe jumps amongst the cast the better.

There are some instances where you can meaty with 5A and make the opponent's reversal whiff, but it largely depends on the reversal. She can also do this with any form of meaty as well, but 5A and 2A might be your safest bet. 2B is excellent for a meaty and checks if the opponent messes up their reversal or not, but generally a plan where you're hoping the opponent messes up is a flawed one. (I also would not consider meaties without another factors okizeme, but to each their own.)

With Snow Bunnies active, you have plenty of options to make the opponent take the incoming mixup. However, you want to be aware of RG when doing so. Using Snow Bunnies against characters with command grabs such as Ikumi, Mayu, and Rumi will generally reverse the situation and leaving you with less meter and health. The most basic mixup you can do with Snow Bunnies is with 236A and 236C. Beyond that, you can also air dash into characters to make them take a left/right mixup. Finally, there's throw... but opponents can air tech once frozen, so it's not a good option.

Finally, there's Final Memory, but this comes with a catch: You have to make sure the opponent can stay within the effective area. If the opponent is particularly stuck at the Grandfather Clock's active frames, then you're free to run mixups on them.
