Amano Mishio

Introduction

Amano Mishio (天野 美汐) has the slowest walk/dash in the game, but makes up for it with how strong she is in every other aspect. She has the best mid range normals in the game and is one of the few characters with a fully invincible, meterless dragon punch. Her defining characteristic is her element system: while she starts out fairly weak with only one special, the dragon punch, landing it randomly assigns her one of two elements: fire or lightning. Each element gives her access to new specials, with lightning specials focusing on space control, while fire specials grant her massive damage potential. Some of the elemental moves consume the element and put her back in her weak elementless state, forcing her to connect with 623* again. You can however IC the skills to keep the element.

Mishio is a supporting character of Kanon, a visual novel produced by Key in 1999. She is a first-year student at the high school that Yuiichi attends. She acts cold and unfriendly, and scares away her classmates. However, Yuiichi discovers that she seems to know a lot more about Makoto than she should be able to know. During Kanon, when Makoto's condition worsens and Yuiichi confronts Mishio, she warns him about his future and what it means for a "miracle" to be realized...

Stage: Monomi Hill (ものみの丘)

BGM: Sea of Mist (霧海) + the fox and the grapes

Character-Specific Notes

  • Mishio is able to air jump once, and air dash/backstep once.
  • Mishio has one of the slowest walks and ground dashes in the game. Use the air dash instead if you need to get anywhere fast.
  • Mishio's current element allows her to access a subset of her moves. She gains element from connecting certain non-element moves (typically her "Round Moon" move), and loses element from completing certain element-based moves.
  • There is a black circle just above Mishio's SP gauge, indicating her current element. A red "炎" symbolizes the Flame element, a blue "雷" symbolizes the Thunder element, and a red and blue "覚" symbolizes her Awakened state (she gains both elements). If it is empty, she currently has no element. Her current element (if any) can also be determined by the colour of sparks being emitted from her body.
  • If Mishio uses her "Fantasy Beast Sky Fox Summoning" move, she will glow a golden colour and gain her Awakened state, giving her the power of both elements. A "Time" gauge will appear below her life gauge, indicating the time left before her Awakened state disappears. While Mishio has both elements, she can perform essentially every move on her movelist.

Strengths:

  • Insane normals allows her to control space easily
  • Insane damage potential can easily leave people overdefensively or dead
  • Arguably the best set of Shoryuken moves in the game makes her very hard to pressure
  • Ability to full combo off the most random abare situations
  • Combos guarantee tech-punishes without cutting anything short

Weaknesses:

  • Sluggish movement, the slowest dash and walkspeed in the game
  • Lack of offensive tools outside of elements makes it hard to initially open people up
  • Getting started into an element can be a huge chore
  • Due to the random factor it's possible to get "element screwed", such as getting only lightning in a matchup where it can go as far as being risky to hold on to.

Standing

5A

Damage Guard Startup ¹ ² ³ Active Recovery Adv Hit Adv Block Cancel
200 Low or Air 6 4 11 -1 -2 -

A quick poke to the shin. Very far range for a jab. Does not chain into itself and resembles more of a medium-strength attack. The disjointed hitbox can be great in Mishio's pokey corner lockdown.

Damage Guard Startup ¹ ² ³ Active Recovery Adv Hit Adv Block Cancel
400 Ground 6 6 15 +1 -1 -

Mishio hammers down her spear. This move has an INSANE disjointed red wall of pain in front and diagonally above Mishio. Spaced correctly, this beats everything. Anti-airing with this is gives way too much reward for how common it is. That said, there is a blindspot right in front of Mishio's forehead. Doing this too close can whiff it on airborne opponents or someone doing a lower-body invul DP. This move starts up so fast and has so much untech time it airjuggles into itself. Looping this with 2B in the corner leads to her highest damage combos.

(f)5B

Mishiof5b.png
Damage Guard Startup ¹ ² ³ Active Recovery Adv Hit Adv Block Cancel
420 Ground 7 3 17 -1 -3 -

Long range spear thrust. This is pretty much her signature move. The entire thrust INCLUDING HER HAND is a disjointed red hitbox. Stops most characters dead in their tracks trying to approach from the ground. In lightning mode this move becomes a very common combo starter. Short whiff animation makes this great to simply throw out there. However, it can be low profiled by certain slides which is basically the only thing of concern regarding this move.

Lightning only

450 High 21 7 13 +3 +1 -

LIGHTNING ONLY. Hop overhead. Low body invulnerability (along other hurtbox shenanigans) and non-existent recovery. It recovers so fast it can "safejump" some EX reversals or make them straight up whiff, such as Ayu's arrows. Hitting this meaty will enable combos without the use of IC. Can be cancelled into lightning j.236236 air super, leading into unblockable setups.

Damage Guard Startup ¹ ² ³ Active Recovery Adv Hit Adv Block Cancel
650 Ground 9 4 25 -2 -4 -

Short range upwards thrust. Short range horizontally, that is. Huge disjointed hitbox upwards makes this one of the best anti-airs in the game and leads into huge combos. This move is so good it can go as far as challenging Akiko's washing machine. Even trading with this is fine and still leads to the same combos as if jumpcancelled. However, it is quite slow and has to be done early. Have no fear though, the quick recovery makes this fine to be whiffed against doublejump-baits and the like.

Fire only

600 Any 12 2 30 / -9 -

FIRE ONLY. Spear uppercut. Straightforward launcher. The range and angle allow this to be used as an anti-air outside of 5C range. This easily whiffs when using too long strings to hitconfirm. Only useful on a close-up hitconfirm when comboing into super is not an option.

Crouching

2A

180 Low 4 3 9 +1 0 -

A fast kick. Mashable, good for pressure. The short range and bad hurtbox compared to many other 2A of its kind makes it unreliable in RG battles. Can be used in character-specific airjuggles.

Damage Guard Startup ¹ ² ³ Active Recovery Adv Hit Adv Block Cancel
410 Ground 12 2 8 +8 +6 -

Spinning spear attack. This move is pretty slow, chaining into it after getting RG'd is asking to be punished. Despite being slow, it recovers extremely fast and is quite positive on block. Comes with some very decent range for the type of move it is. Covers the area directly above Mishio's head, can anti-air in certain situations but lacks the upwards reach to challenge most things. The quick recovery and huge untech-time make this part of her 5B 2B loop, leading to her most damaging corner juggles.

2C

620 Low 12 2 21 / 0 -

Long range spear sweep across the floor. The go-to normal after hitconfirming outside of lightning, this sweep will combo into elementless 623A and any fire super.

Jumping

220 High 6 6 11 / / -

Fast downards stab. Similar to 5A, more resembling of a medium strength attack. The great untech time allow very delayed chains to j.B to adjust juggle heights freely. A very strong jump-in for situations where you need speed over j.C's hitbox. Useful for some basic high/low mixups, but very vulnerable to RG.


J5B

420 High 6 2 21 / / -

f.5B's aerial brother. GOD LANCE. Quick startup, short recovery, big disjointed range and enough untech time to confirm this into an airdash for a combo. This move is both used in neutral as a zoning tool to poke at opponents and deny air space as well as a combo staple. Because of how Mishio shortens her legs during this move, it will hit almost all the way to the ground before she actually lands. This prevents people from crouching under it and tripguarding Mishio.

650 High 11 2 25 / / -

Huge downwards spear swing. This move has an INSANE disjointed hitbox anywhere below and in front of Mishio. It also hits really far behind Mishio. No normal means will anti-air this ever. Sends the opponent downwards for a knockdown, but due to the nature of Mishio's juggles the untech-time will be so borderline this can be pretty much immediately airteched. Outside of crossups, the main purpose of this move is as a midscreen or a fire comboender in the corner, as ending a juggle in j.C cancelled into Running Flame is an automatic tech-trap setup.

Dashing

Looks identical to 5C but carries momentum. What's better than an anti-air 5C? An anti-air 5C that slides across the floor while at it. Unlike 5C, this can't be jumpcancelled on block making this rather unsafe when blocked close up. Will launch the opponent on hit.

662A

Mishio powers up with a nine-tailed shockwave, hitting anyone closeby. She then enters the Awakened state, which gives her unlimited access to both elements, for an entire 15 seconds. Inputting the command is a bit tricky, since it won't work if done too quickly. An alternative input would be BB25CA, where the 5 signifies a slight pause in your input.

Strategy

Overview

Mishio has one of the slowest walk movements in the game, and her dash movement is not much better. She makes up for this by having some of the best normals in the game, in terms of hitboxes vs. hurtboxes. Her two elements accentuate her gameplay in different ways, with lightning leading to a more defensive, neutral based game, and fire leading to a more offensive, burst-damage style.

A good Mishio will be able to seamlessly switch between the two elements as needed, and be able to adapt to whatever RNG throws at them. Knowing good element switch combos (doing a move that loses your element in the middle of a combo, and ending that same combo with an elementless DP) will be the difference between an okay Mishio and a great Mishio.

She also boasts perhaps the best set of reversals in the game, with fully invulnerable DPs in two of her modes. Beyond that, all of her specials and supers serve a purpose, with none being entirely useless, save for her FM.

Neutral

5B and jB. You could boil down her basic neutral gameplan to these two buttons and you wouldn't be far off the mark. Ridiculously good hitboxes, almost no hurtbox past her hand, and with good reactions, you can convert 5B into full combos in lightning, and jB into a full combo in any element. Her c5B and 5C are also excellent antiairs and can challenge even the best air buttons, with conversions into a full combo. Her element specific tools include an extremely active field of damage in lightning 623B, and in fire, the only movement ability Mishio has: fire 236B.

5B/jB

  • Your classic spear poke. Hitbox is huge, and her hurtbox is very small for how much space these buttons control. There are only a few buttons that can even challenge this poke in neutral. In any element, you can jB confirm into 66 jA land 5B jB 66 jAB and then the ender of choice for your element. With no element, 5B ends at just a good poke; with red IC, it's possible to 5B IC 662C 623A but it requires insane reactions. In fire, it's much the same, but you always have the choice of 236B after it to prevent the opponent from pressing buttons or jumping. In lightning, 5B becomes an excellent button; with good reactions you can confirm it into 623B for a full combo into element switch. If you have no idea what else to press, press these buttons.

c5B/5C

  • c5B has an excellent disjointed hitbox, and comes out very fast. It is the button of choice to punish an IAD on reaction. 5C has amazing reach vertically, and can even beat out the king of air-to-ground moves, Akiko jC (washing machine). Even on a trade, you can continue with jB to convert a 5C into a full combo. A Mishio that uses these well will scare any opponent from attempting to approach from the air. On the other hand, this will also slow down the speed of gameplay considerably, as opponents will not want to approach without excessive precautions.

Lightning 623B

  • Comes out decently fast, extremely active, and allows all the time in the world to confirm into a full combo. You don't necessarily have to be able to confirm this from 5B, though doing so will up your Mishio game considerably. On a blocked 623B, you can still dash up and attempt to 623A or 662C on opponents being careless. This will be used a lot to set up element switch combos.

Fire 236B

  • Mishio's only real movement ability, this special will dash forward and, after a specific amount of time, start stabbing the opponent. Get to know the distance that this will fully combo, as confirming this into IC and a full combo is an easy 4k combo that builds your IC back. Beware if the opponent RGs the dash part of this move, as they can input a button before the stabs start. Always input RG counter after the dash, it will save you some day.

Dash momentum

  • A special note about Mishio's dash moves: if a certain amount of frames have elapsed since the start of Mishio's dash, her dash moves will gain considerable momentum forward. Learn the timing for this, as abusing this mechanic will up her mobility to slightly below average, as opposed to bottom tier.

NOTE: jC whiffs

  • Something to aim for when you are trying to level up your Mishio game is to incorporate jC whiffs into your combos. jC has the property of its meter gain being added before the move becomes active. So any time you're doing a jB 66 j(A)B air loop, finish off with a late jC before continuing your combo. The meter gained isn't much, but it adds up over the course of a game, and with much of Mishio's crazy damage locked behind meter and BIC usage, gaining as much as you can, where you can, is a high priority.

Lightning

Lightning is Mishio's defensive/neutral based element. She has a couple of notable specials, one being 623B as explained in the previous section. This section lists the others.

412A

  • Mishio's version of a fireball. 412A travels along the ground, and is excellent to toss out at the end of blockstrings to stop opponents from poking back. Confirming this into a jB leads to a full combo.

Fire

Fire is Mishio's offensive element. She has a couple of notable command normals and specials to take note of, including a meterless launcher.

6C

  • 6C is Mishio's meterless launcher in fire, and can lead to an easy jB 66 jAB carry. Can also be used to prorate less than 5C at the end of combos to allow the jC at the end of the combo to connect.

236A

  • This version of 236 isn't actually used all that much, but it deserves a special mention for being one of the only specials that is able to cancel into another special. For example, you can do 2C 236A(1) 214A~3A 623A for an element change switch if you really wanted.

j214

  • You'll almost always use the air version of this, and almost always the C version, with a few instances of j214B. j214A is never used. You can tk this move by inputting 2147C for a quick, comboable version. You can even loop this on itself (max 6 times with no BIC). j214C also acts as her fool-proof tech trap. Confirm a tech happened and do a 5B2B loop into combo ender.

Reversals

Mishio's 623 series are arguably the best reversals in the game. With non-elemntal DPs having massive amounts of invulnerability, and fire's being completely safe with IC, the opponent often has a really hard time pinning down Mishio. Conversely, her lightning DPs are nothing special, and have no invulnerability, leaving her very susceptible to pressure and mixups.

No-element 623A/B

  • 623A is fully invulnerable until active, leading to a trade at worst. While Mishio doesn't gain an element on trade, she gets the opponent off of her and is able to continue on with her neutral game. 623B, however, is fully invulnerable past active frames, meaning with IC, it's fully safe. It takes a while to come out, so opponents with good countermeasures won't have that much of a problem with it.

Fire 623A

  • This version is a mix of no-element's 623A speed and 623B invulnerability. With IC, it is fully safe and doesn't lose Mishio's precious fire element. The only way to reliably beat it is to bait it and make it whiff completely. Leads to an easy, full combo on hit + IC.

Lightning 623C IC

  • Lightning's only invulnerable reversal, but requires you to spend your entire BIC meter. This will also work in other (non-)elements, but there's no reason to.

Fire 236C

  • Mishio rushes forward, hitting multiple times, and will always combo into her stabs. Has quite a lot of invulerability, and with its forward momentum, often escapes the danger zone of a lot of strong mixups. For example, this move will cleanly escape Mizuka's Forte pressure. With BIC, you can confirm into a full combo.

Supers

Lightning: j236236
  • Mishio shoots down a number of lightning fields that cover the ground for several seconds. Not terribly useful in area control, but is very useful to convert off of 6B. You can meterlessly combo back into the field with 662B 623A, or IC the j236236A for an easier time. ICing j236236A and holding 641236[B] right after is a cheeky unblockable setup that can finish off opponents without a reversal on hand.
Lightning: 641236
  • Mishio's basic lightning mode ender. Hold down the button corresponding to the level used, and release when the opponent is about to fall in front of you. Will lose element, but in return, does a lot of damage. Useful for finishing off the opponent. With perfect timing, you can combo after this move, but it's not match reliable in the least.
Fire: 214214
  • Mishio's most used super. Any level is great at adding on massive damage to her combos, and you will want to autopilot into this whenever possible. By inputting the last dive as 2A and then immediately inputting 2C afterwards, you can IC immediately without trouble.
Fire: 236236
  • Less used fire super, but adds on massive damage as well. With the correct starters, actually ends up with more damage than 214214. Mostly used as a combo ender to finish off an opponent, as letting it fully hit without IC will lose your fire element.
No-element: BB2CA
  • Mishio's only super without an element. Requires red, flashing health and 3 meter. Input is a raging-demon type, so just input each action individually. Will hit the opponent and cause hard knockdown if they're close enough. Gives her an awakened meter that lasts for 15 seconds, and allows her the use of all her specials and supers. Her 623 series mimic the no-element versions. Mishio has awakened-specific combos, but actually using her FM rarely happens so it's probably fine if you don't learn them, as all her other combos work just fine.

Mixups & Okizeme

Mishio doesn't have the best mixup game, relying more on her superior pokes and ability to convert most hits into major damage. Lightning uses IC with her various set up specials to create left/right/high mixups, while fire pressures the opponent into not pressing a button to beat her slower mixups.

Lightning

6B
  • Mishio's lightning mode gains 6B as a command normal, letting her do a slight hop into an overhead. On certain characters, you can link this into a 2A, but for the most part you need one of her other specials to follow up, or IC it.
412C
  • 412C is the okizeme version of her fireball, and will usually be set after a 2C midscreen. Loses your element, but a successful mixup will gain an element back. Follow up the 412C with a 669 over their body, and then a 7 to uncrossup, or late 7 to crossup. Complete the combo with a jB 66 jAB carry loop into 623A ender.
22A IC
  • Mishio raises her spear and calls down a lightning strike. This can be ICed as her spear is raised. Do this after a 2C 662B(whiff). You can then meaty 2A5B for a combo, or 2A IAD for a crossup, a 2A 6B for an overhead, or just block if you think they'll reversal.

Fire

623B IC
  • Mishio's 623B in fire becomes an overhead. Hard to see as there is not much happening in her animation. Knocks down and loses element, but with IC, you can 5C into a full combo.
484 jB
  • Backwards IADs in this game have no minimum height requirement, and Mishio can act 1f faster than other characters after her air backdash. This allows her to get a jB out before she lands, and with its reach, can overhead any character in the game (except Mayu and Ikumi). Follow this up with an instant 662C 214214A in fire, or a 5B 623B in lightning.
j214B
  • j214B makes another appearance, this time for a mixup potential. While this is more of a show-off mixup rather than what Mishio tends to play for, you can set up a hard to see left/right mixup using her fire dive. To start with, after 214214A in the corner, you can IC and then 236B underneath the opponent. This will steal the corner from them. After that, you can 9 to jump out of the corner, 44 to airdash back into the corner, and then j214B to hit a meaty left/right. With good timing, you can convert into a 5AC into full combo.
