Story

Celia II Kai
『セリアII改』

Celia II (Kai to her friends) was created to guard the Chaos Code, but really all she wants to do is unblockable people. Unfortunately, she got a bit beat up and had to get a refit with worse parts, so she's not as strong as she used to be. She's pretty mad because her unblockable costs 3 meters and can be rolled on reaction.

Playstyle

Health: 28000
Stun: 70

Celia II Kai (just called Kai to avoid confusion with her boss form "Celia II") is a relatively versatile character, with low risk options that lead to high reward. She doesn't have a meterless reversal, and lacks a solid grounded, anti-air but more than makes up for it with dominating air buttons and some very high reward metered reversals.

Mobility (Run vs. Step)

Run: Standard run. Cancelable into buttons or superjumps. The most common choice for Kai.

Step: Standard hop. Kai can do some alright tic grabs with it. She'll also build meter faster.

Extra Move Selection

Tricky Vision is a very good reversal. Kai doesn't need it because EX barrier is also a very good reversal, but both reversals are good for different reasons, so it's still very much worth taking.

Core of Death is a command grab, which is good for mix-ups and resets, and also for combos since 6A pulls in and lets you combo into the grab.

Vanishing Pressure is a command grab so you could use it for mix-ups, but the more notable thing is that it resets the screen position to the center, giving you a consistent followup combo.

Burning Gaze doesn't have much not obvious about it. It's very simple to combo into but doesn't give much extra utility.

Recommended Sets

Any Combination of Core of Death, Tricky Vision, and Vanishing Pressure is good since all of the moves themselves are good and none of them overlap in use very much. Beam Super is not especially useful but if you find that you can't convert hits into exceed or waffle iron very well, Beam Super might be better for easy confirms into decent damage.

Tricky Vision & Core of Death

Gives Kai a lot of extra utility, and if you're planning on using Exceed combos you probably wont have much use for the extra supers, so you're better off taking these.

Core of Death and Vanishing Pressure

Gives Kai a lot of extra combo routes. Waffle Iron combos are a good outlet for meter if you don't want to save for exceed.

Normal Moves

5A
5A

Damage Stun Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Advantage (block) Cancelable Counterhit Properties
- - High/Low 5 - - ?/-3 Yes -

Short ranged poke. Can be staggered and cancels into itself. Misses an opponent who is crouching, unless you hit them with a normal prior to it. Not the best anti-air due to its hitbox (hits lower than Kai's face), however it is useful after doing an air string to force the opponent to block your air unblockable 5A into 5C hitconfirm.

2A
2A
CC C2 2A.gif
Damage Stun Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Advantage (block) Cancelable Counterhit Properties
- - Low - - - - Yes -

Kai's hand turns into a drill and bores into the enemy's feet. Hits 2 times (the first hit is low, the second is a mid) and can be linked into itself if the first 2a hits very late and is done on an opponent's wake up. Can be chained into 2D for a knockdown as a small hitconfirm if you're outta range for something else. This move is less plus on block than 2b, however its active frames is longer than 2b, making it easier to time your normals for oki. If an opponent is also upbacking your pressure, 2a (1hit) chained to 2b as a blockstring will catch them. With 2a's long hitbox it can be chained into 2D even at max range.

5B
5B
CC C2 5B.gif
Damage Stun Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Advantage (block) Cancelable Counterhit Properties
- - High/Low 7 - - ?/-1 Yes -

Kai's dress pokes out. Less range than 2B, so not as good as 2A for poking. Has a higher hitbox than 2B, making it whiff on opponent's in a really low otg comboable state, however, 5b when it does hit as an otg, raises the opponent into the air higher and pushes you farther away (useful for spacing specific timing on exceed combos).

2B
2B
CC C2 2B.gif
Damage Stun Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Advantage (block) Cancelable Counterhit Properties
- - Low - - - - Yes -

Kai throws out a kick towards the ankle. Low with slightly less range than 2A. If chained together as a blockstring, the opponent cannot mash you in between, however there is a big enough gap to jump out from 2B to 2B. 2B is also plus enough on block to frame trap with cl.5C if slowed down well enough.

cl.C
cl.C
CC C2 clC.gif
Damage Stun Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Advantage (block) Cancelable Counterhit Properties
- - High/Low - - - - Yes Stagger

A short ranged upwards swipe. Trades with a lot of stuff when used as an anti-air, but still probably her best meterless option. Her hurtbox lowers when using this move (lower than her standing hurtbox), so getting used to timing this to stuff people above you can be important.

5C
5C
CC C2 5C.gif

Kai attacks with a Mid ranged scythe swipe downwards. Hits from about 2 character lengths. Moves forward a little.

2C
2C
CC C2 2C.gif
Damage Stun Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Advantage (block) Cancelable Counterhit Properties
- - High/Low - - - - Yes Stagger

A cannon fired from Kai's mouth. Hits about 2 character lengths. Can be linked from 2a and 2b if very close. This move pushes the opponent far away when they are in an otgable state, but helps regulate height specific combos such as 2b2c in the corner to help for easy rejump combos in the corner.

5D
5D
CC C2 5D.gif
Damage Stun Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Advantage (block) Cancelable Counterhit Properties
- - High/Low - - - - No Launch

An axe rotates around Kai's entire body. Moves her forward some, hits for about 2 character lengths, vaccuums in on hit (but not on block). Doesn't deter cross-ups, the hitbox is only in the front of Kai. It's not cancelable, but you can link off it.

2D

Kai's leg turns into a saw and extends. Hits low, causes knockdown. You can pick up for a combo on Counter Hit by dashing afterwards.

Damage Stun Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Advantage (block) Cancelable Counterhit Properties
- - High - - - - - -

Kai's hand turns into a drill, just like her 2A. Very Good ranged air to air that hits twice and is easily confirmable. Can be used to whiff a crouching opponent after an instant air dash and catch an opponent off guard if they were expecting to block a normal. Instant air dash jump A into low or throw can make opponents second guess themselves.

j.B
j.B
CC C2 j.B.gif
Damage Stun Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Advantage (block) Cancelable Counterhit Properties
- - High - - - - - -

Kai kicks downwards whilst in the air. Not as good an air to air or jump-in as J.A and J.C respectively. It's main use is to hit while rising in situations where j.C will whiff, as well as a good normal use for a tick throw after an instant air dash. Also at instant air dash height, can be chained into jump C to do a double overhead as you descend.

j.C
j.C
CC C2 j.C.gif
Damage Stun Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Advantage (block) Cancelable Counterhit Properties
- - High - - - - Yes Stagger

Kai's scythe slashes upwards making for an alright air-to-air and a really good jump in. It's best use is in air footsies battles where it often out-prioritizes other normals. When jump C lands really deep on an opponent who is blocking, you can jump C fuzzy guard them if they blocked the first jump C high and then transitioned to blocking low. Has less blockstun than jump D (normally) unless done at very specific low heights.

j.D
j.D
CC C2 j.D.gif
Damage Stun Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Advantage (block) Cancelable Counterhit Properties
- - High - - - - Yes Stagger

Kai's scythe twirls about her waist, glowing red. Mainly used for AD cross-ups as the hitbox is all around her. Not as good as J.A as an air-to-air, but a good jump-in and a good move to come down with after an air tech. Hitbox is only at her waist, so when using it in rejump combos, use her waist as a guideline to know when to hit with it.

Regular throw. Pushes the opponent relatively far away. Kai can combo off this. Although she doesn't get much midscreen, you can at the very least turn it into a soft knockdown if you want and let your opponent tech roll themselves closer to the corner.

Kai spins around horizontally on fire, similar to Bison's psycho crusher. Useful as a combo ender. Ground hitbox is smaller than air version.

C - - High/Low - - - - No Float

Kai spins about 3/4th screen, crossing the enemy (On block) up if they are within this distance. More damage.

EX - - High/Low - - - - No Float

Kai spins horizontally and turns purple instead of red, shooting towards the opponent. Very fast start-up and recovery. After the startup of the animation, Kai's hurtbox is extremely small, allowing her to weave through projectiles if spaced well vertically.

Kai hops off the ground and forward a third of the screen, bringing down her scythe along the way.

Kai hops off the ground about a half screen distance, bring down her scythe in the meantime. Causes an OTGable knockdown.

EX - - High - - - - No -

Kai hops about a half screen, covered in flames. Hits on the way up for combos and causes an OTGable knockdown. It's also invincible making it a potential reversal, although it's rather slow for a DP. When using this version in the air, it does not have otgable properties. Typically after landing, the EX version in the air, whiffed 2D as they land allows for a 2A meaty or 623B command throw mixup.

Kai surrounds herself with an orange force field. Absorbs projectiles. Used in corner combos because of the wall slam effect

EX - - High/Low - - - - No Wallbounce

Kai surrounds herself with a purple force field. Reflects projectiles. Only version of the move that is invulnerable on startup and on CH it causes a giant wall bounce that's easy to confirm from. It's in counter hit state even during recovery so try not to have it whiff or get blocked.

Super command grab. Launches the opponent to the moon (if they get killed by the grab they'll actually never fall down). To combo off it, whiff 5A by holding it down once you see the light disappear from her gauntlets to kill frames, then confirm with cl.C. Comboable (can link off of 5D even) and on whiff the clap becomes a hit for some reason, so even if they jump out they might just get hit.

Damage Stun Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Advantage (block) Cancelable Counterhit Properties
- - Unblockable - - - - No -

Kai creates gigantic sword and swings it at the enemy. The Destruction Chaos is both invulnerable and unblockable. It costs three bars and takes out 50% of the opponents health on hit. You can actually blockstring into this, although it'll lower the damage substantially. One of the most useful level 3s since it can lead to checkmate situations. The hitbox of this move is so gigantic, it covers about 75% of the screen horizontally, so as a way to finish off your opponent throwing projectiles on reaction, this can work.

Strategy

Neutral

Tomahawk - Generally 236A is safer, you can use it to put some pressure on an opponent who wants to sit full screen. Mix it up with double Tomahawk but be careful since the extra recovery can kill you. Against zoning characters double Tomahawk is extremely helpful since it can kill an opponent's projectile with the first Tomahawk, then punish with the second. Big tomahawk works well as a deterrent to jumping since it takes up roughly the entire screen.

J.A - Because Kai's anti-airs are generally lacking you want to spend as much time putting pressure on as you can. J.A is your main tool to shut down an opponent that's trying to meet you in the air.

J.C/J.D- Once you've established some fear you can go for j.C or j.D as an overhead. J.D is better against a grounded opponent since it'll cross-up, but j.C has a better air-to-air hitbox in case you're worried about that.

5C/2A - both have great range and are cancelable, these are great normals to use to get some pressure started if you want to stay grounded. 5C can anti-air in some situations and generally has the better hitbox, although obviously 2A is much faster. 2C also has a pretty good hitbox and all give a lot of hitstun on counter.

Tragic Disparity - You can use this to nullify/reflect projectiles on reaction. The EX version will give you huge damage on counterhit, but all versions are very punishable so you don't want to go into this outside of reactions too much.


Combos

any combo ending in j.214AC can be ended with j.623C as well if you don't want to spend the meter.
