Kamio Misuzu

Introduction

Kamio Misuzu (神尾 観鈴) is the EFZ version of Guilty Gear’s Testament, specializing in mixups and space control through the laying of invisible proximity traps, along with the help of her crow. She also has a unique "curse" projectile which poisons and tracks the opponent from above or behind, pressuring them to approach Misuzu and her traps. Misuzu can then further control space with her normals, and should the opponent back off she can collect her feather resource, giving her access to powerful supers which significantly strengthen all aspects of her game. Once she lands a clean knockdown, her traps, hoverdash and juice lockdown give her elaborate oki options and curse combos, which add significant unscaled poison damage. Misuzu can struggle at the start of a match due to her unremarkable set of normals and not having any traps set or feathers stocked.

Misuzu is the main heroine of AIR, a visual novel produced by Key in 2000. Misuzu is a school girl in the town where the story takes place. She is a cheerful, slightly clumsy girl, and has a great love of both dinosaurs and pulpy-peach juice. She lives in an isolated house with her mother Haruko, who doesn't play with her or even cook for her, and who finds drinking as her main joy in life. During AIR, Yukito becomes close friends with Misuzu, as they struggle together against a supernatural curse that has continued for 1000 summers...

Misuzu was added to EFZ's cast in Blue Sky Edition.

Stage: In Front of the Kamio House (神尾家前)

BGM: Blue Sky (青空)

Character-Specific Notes

  • Misuzu's ground dashes are hoverdashes that put her into the air. Instead of dashing moves, attacks done during a hoverdash will be jumping moves. Hoverdashes do not count as airdashes, so Misuzu can still jump or do her real airdash from them.
  • Sora the crow will follow Misuzu around the screen. He is involved in some of her special moves, which cannot be used if he is not close enough.
  • Misuzu is able to curse the opponent, giving them a light blue tint and creating a "Time" gauge under Misuzu's health bar. This time gauge displays the amount of time remaining on the curse. A full gauge will take 1000 frames (~15.5 seconds) to completely drain, but if Misuzu is hit it will instantly end. Cursing an already cursed opponent will refresh some curse duration and raise their curse level. While the opponent is cursed, they will slowly lose life at a rate determined by the level of the curse, which is not displayed. The maximum curse level is 5. Curse damage ignores damage scaling, defence modifiers, and invulnerability but it cannot kill the opponent.
    • Curse level 1 - 750 total damage
    • Curse level 2 - 950 total damage
    • Curse level 3 - 1200 total damage
    • Curse level 4 - 1650 total damage
    • Curse level 5 - 2720 total damage
  • When Misuzu does her Fate super, a feather will appear above her SP gauge. She can hold a maximum of 3 feathers. Misuzu consumes a feather instead of SP every time she uses her Activation supers.
  • Misuzu has no moves which can counterhit or be counterhit.

  • Misuzu shoves the opponent away with her open hand. Has noticeably short range. This is Misuzu's worst move by far. It has shorter range than her 5A, does less damage than the alternative 2B in combos, and worst of all, has a shorter range than the boundary distance where c5B becomes f5B. This means you can easily find yourself whiffing c5B after connecting an A attack somewhere, stopping your combo cold.

This move is mainly used as a way to inflicit a large amount of hitstun within a combo in order to link a super. It also serves a limited role as a poke, due to its range.

  • Misuzu does a small hop with her laundry pole held high, and then smashes it down on top of the opponent. This move acts as an overhead. This move is one of the longer-range overheads in the game, and is quite damaging for an command overhead as well. This move is ill-suited to combos, so its sole purpose is to be used within a blockstring to try and land some spare damage on the opponent.

Misuzu creates a book trap by scribbling on the ground. The trap is invisible, and will automatically activate once the opponent comes close, with the proximity being slightly wider than its actual hitbox. Traps will automatically be destroyed without any visual indicator if not activated within 472.66 frames (about 7.5 seconds). While a trap is active, you cannot create another trap with the same button.

  • There is no difference between the A and B versions, except for the appearance of the trap (A version is Misuzu waving, and B version is Haruko drinking).
  • This move is quite useful. It forces the opponent to be careful about their movements and adds more to their mental burden.

  • Misuzu does a forward somersault leap at the opponent, her wings extending to hit the space in front of her. It starts up quickly but has loads of recovery time if blocked. This move will launch the opponent a medium distance horizontally if it hits. It does not guarantee knockdown if the opponent's guard meter is low.
  • Its main use is to add damage to combos, usually after a C attack. It's not too good on its own because of the recovery time if the opponent blocks it.
B 650 Any / 28 5 17 / 0 IC
  • Same as the A version, except that it starts up late and has no disadvantage on block.
  • This move has too much startup time to be chained into. It is more useful to use as part of a blockstring.
C 850 Any I: 1-11 16 5 31 / -14 IC
  • Same as the A version, except that it has invincibility for the most of the startup frames, and if the launched opponent hits the corner before hitting the ground, they will wallbounce.
  • The added wallbounce property makes this move a lot more useful than the A version, since it can lead to longer combos. Normally, the opponent will only be wallbounced by this move if they are already close to the corner, since they are only thrown half a screen away. However there is a way to force a wallbounce from any location as long as you yourself are not against a corner. By performing an IC right after you hit this move and jumping backwards, the screen will stay where it is to keep both players on screen, and the opponent will hit the edge and wallbounce.

Misuzu creates an invisible web trap out of juice. The trap will automatically activate when the opponent enters its range, but only if they are airborne. Can be destroyed if the opponent attacks the trap, and they cannot "tank" hits for Misuzu. Traps will disappear without a trace if not activated within about 7.5 seconds. While a trap is active, you cannot create another using the same button.

  • C version destroys any existing A and B webs when placed (although they can be placed after a C web is up), but suspends opponents for longer and cannot be destroyed by the opponent's attacks.
  • In addition to being useful in neutral, these traps also allow Misuzu to combo off of her throws or occasionally interrupt her opponent's combos.

Once active, the lump will slowly float down while moving side to side, disappearing when it comes close enough to the ground.
  • Only properly tracks the opponent if they are about a half screen away or farther from Misuzu, otherwise the lump will be sent its maximum distance (off screen).
B projectile 100 + Curse Any 70 287 / / +22 None
  • Shoots a lump forwards that becomes active after traveling about a full screen away from Misuzu. Once active, the lump will slowly float backwards while moving up and down, disappearing after travelling back to where Misuzu first shot it.
  • More useful than the A version because there is no distance restriction to worry about.

  • Misuzu points forward and summons a Stegosaurus in front of her, which breathes fire originating from the ground forwards. The flames are slightly random. This move will burn the opponent if it hits. There is a safe spot for the opponent at close range.
  • This move is only useful when at the end of a combo. Do not use this move at point-blank range.
B 230 x 21 Any 16 89 - / +1 None
  • Misuzu points forward and summons a Pteranodon in front of her, which breathes fire from its mouth originating from the head-height forwards. The flames are slightly random. This move will burn the opponent if it hits. There is a safe spot for the opponent at point blank range.
  • Just like the A version, this move is only useful at the end of a combo. Because of the low increase in damage of 1000 (in end of combo) for an extra level of SP, it would be better to use the A version unless you really needed the extra damage.
C 240 x 32 Any 16 125 - / - None
  • Misuzu points forward and summons a Apatosaurus behind her, which breathes fire from its mouth aimed diagonally down, moving to forwards-up. This move has complete invincibility during startup frames, and will burn the opponent if it hits. There is a safe spot for the opponent at point blank range.
  • This move is harder to combo into since the flames have farther to travel now. It can possibily be done after a RF Wings wallbounce. The startup invincibility also allows this move to be used as a counter hit, if you anticipate the opponent's attack. However, if this move is blocked, Misuzu is extremely vulnerable to attack once the flames aim upwards, more so than the A or B versions.

Misuzu covers her head with her arms and braces for impact. If Misuzu is attacked by a physical move during her pose, she will vanish behind an unblockable explosion of juice, and reappear from the ground afterwards.

  • The A, B, and C versions will apply 1, 3, and 5 levels of curse respectively, and completely refresh the curse gauge if the opponent was already cursed.
  • Misuzu will open one eye once she's entered recovery.
  • This move has a lot of seemingly unintentional things holding it back. The superflash gives away the intent to counter, so this move will only work on opponents who have already committed to an attack of some sort. Additionally, Misuzu's hurtbox is significantly smaller than it normally is while she's standing, during the one move where she wants to get hit. Once triggered, the hitbox is also much smaller than you would expect, and the opponent is able to IC their move to retract their hurtbox on a poke. If they triggered it with an invincible move, they will most likely also not get hit as the counter's hitbox is only active for a single frame. Even on a successful hit, the damage is very low unless you maximize the curse damage, which is not guaranteed.
  • Thankfully, Misuzu is fully invincible after the hit, so she can't be punished if it whiffs.

While Misuzu has one or more feathers, her "Sora Attack" move becomes unavailable as the new supers have the same input.
  • This move is absolutely essential in order to do Misuzu's most damaging supers. The recovery time is quite long however, so it should only be done as soon as the opponent is knocked down, or while the opponent is in an long hitstun.

  • A version - It's disgusting! (濃厚絞り)
    • Misuzu summons Yukito, who immediately starts squeezing a juice box, letting the juice pour out a short distance in front of Misuzu. Yukito does this independently for 2 seconds, leaving Misuzu free to get close again and restart a combo.
    • This does minimal damage by itself, but is mainly used either to extend combos, to keep the opponent in block stun for a free mixup, or to regain the initiative by using this right after RGing an opponent's attack.
  • B version - Kick the dog! (芋シュート)
    • Misuzu summons Yukito, who kicks Potato in a straight line horizontally across the screen. Potato will drill through opponents, acting as a multi-hit projectile.
    • This move is the best damage dealer for Misuzu for the amount of SP needed. It's almost useless when used outside of combos, though.
  • C version - ShorYukito (アッパー)
    • Misuzu summons Yukito, who immediately does a rising uppercut.
    • It's quite cumbersome to combo into this, so this move is mostly used as a low-risk wakeup or anti-air attack.

Damage Guard Startup ¹ ² Active Recovery Adv Hit Adv Block Cancel
5000 Grab 37 1 118 / / None
  • Misuzu concentrates for half a second with sparks gathering around, and then stops time while reappearing in some pajamas. She takes three steps towards the frozen opponent, and if the opponent is on the ground within arms-length of Misuzu on the third step, she will grab them and say "Goal...". It is essentially a ground throw with a medium range and a long startup time. It is medium-range only, and can actually whiff if the opponent is too close. She is completely invincible for the entire startup, so the opponent cannot hit you out of it. The most interesting thing is how this move is one of the very few moves in EFZ that ignores all damage scaling. If landed, it will deal 5000 damage precisely, no questions asked, making it the only move capable of killing the opponent who is at 1/2 health single-handedly. If Misuzu manages to win the match with this move, she adds on "Let happy memories reside at the end..." (最後にはどうか幸せな記憶を…) with some added music. However, if the grab fails, Misuzu will fall to the ground in a knockdown state, completely vulnerable to attack for two seconds.
  • The sheer power of this move makes it a move to be feared by the opponent, but it is quite easy to see and evade if the opponent is actively looking for it, since all they need to do is jump when they see the tell-tale sparks. However, since it only takes a half-second to activate and cannot be interrupted, the opponent may change their playing style to increase their chances of evasion. They may refrain from attacks with long recovery times, and might even jump more often if they lack confidence in their reaction time. If the opponent is noticably affected by the threat of your FM, you can try to take advantage of their weakness.
  • Misuzu can whiff cancel most of her normals into this move.

Strategy

Misuzu's main gameplan is to set traps (236*, 214*, 421*), acquire feathers(463214*) and do her okizeme loops out of that. Her combos are mostly character agnostic, with the exception for jB/jC stuff, jB will whiff on some characters and jC can crossup on small crouchers (such as Mayu and Unknown).

Neutral

Misuzu is a character that requires more patience and needs you to mostly play outside of your opponent's range. f5B is a good button to poke with, but does not lead into many combos. In close ranges where you'd want to use f5B, it's a good idea to use 5A instead, because of c5B's short range, it tends to whiff a lot. 5C is a bit on the slower side and even less conversions, 2B is much better in that regard but has a shorter range. 5A can be used as a mash and as an anti-air option which converts into her combos (5A 2BB 2C > Setup) (AA 5A jB j66 jBC c5B etc... > Setup) allowing you to start setplay. While featherless she has access to crow (41236*) which can be used to snipe to opponent or for pressure resets with FIC, you can also get conversions with a somewhat strict timing.

Setups/Okizeme

Misuzu has a wide array of setups to choose from, after a knockdown she can:

  • Get a feather (463124*)
  • Setup a land mine (236*)
  • Setup juice trap (214*), strong especially in the corner
  • Setup a poison left/right mixup (421B)
  • Use Yukito juice (Feather 41236A) for a high/low
  • Go for a left/right mixup with j66 jC

And many other options, so you can play however you want to play! It's important to note, however, that some setups work best in certain screen positions that will be discussed in later sections

Anywhere

  • 463214*
Getting a feather will work out of any knockdown and will be safe, you'll return to neutral, however, stocking feather is one of the most important options, as it allows her many of her other loops. Misuzu almost always wants to have at least one feather stocked.
  • j66 jB/jC
After a knockdown you can j66 for a safejump with jB/jC. jC is used on shorter characters (such as Mayu). Depending on how long you airdash for and how much you delay jC, it can also crossup, while jB will always hit in front, but can be used to safejump so it's sometimes preferable. You can also delay them to go for a safe empty jump.

2B is a low that will convert into 2C 41236A or 2C 623A/C on max range, 2B being in max range allows Misuzu to meaty and be safe from certain DPs and mash.
  • 6C
If you are close, as a riskier option 6C is an overhead that converts into 5A/2A (Note that it's a 1f link), it can also be IC'd for an easier conversion into her other combos.
  • 236*
Picture diary is a often good option to use while in neutral when you're outside of their effective range, 236* will often hit opponents who weren't paying attention or approach recklessly, you can combo from it and side switch in certain situations with j8 > j9 in quick succession. Important to note that 236C does not disappear after Misuzu gets hit, unlike the A and B counterparts.
  • 214*
Juice traps are used to stall your opponents and get Misuzu another knockdown, usually after a close knockdown or in neutral outside of their effective range, allowing for conversions in the corner or midscreen if Misuzu is close enough for a 5A, or to just set up more traps. This will have a special section in the corner.

Okizeme

A good place to keep Misuzu would be at her maximum range of her 2B. From here, she can do the following:

  • 2B for a low hit that will combo into f5B 2C 623A
  • 6C for a high hit that will knock down again
  • [airdash] j.BC for a high hit that can also crossup left-right if the opponent is still down, and can link into combos
  • [airdash] [land] 2A for a low hit that can link into combos
