Minase Nayuki (asleep)


Minase Nayuki (asleep) (水瀬 名雪(寝)) is an oddball "drunken master" character, who uses her sleepy kung fu style of tricky attacks and eccentric movement to fight in an unpredictable manner. Her unique levelling mechanic gives her one of the most complicated movesets and wildly varies her options from moment to moment, with her levelling up by eating jam and losing a level whenever she is knocked down. As Nayuki's Jam Level increases, she gains various upgrades, such as access to more moves, new move properties, and even additional airdashes. At high levels of jam, she wields very strong lockdown and mixups, three air dashes with hitboxes, multiple reversal options and high damage to boot. On the other hand, if she drops all the way down to zero jam her existence becomes miserable, stripped of many of her crucial moves and left with sluggish attacks, poor movement and pitiful defensive tools. Additionally, losing jam from almost any mistake only makes her more likely to get opened up again as she continues to level down, so any momentum the opponent gets is compounded by Nayuki becoming weaker herself. Even at zero jam, however, you can’t count her out, as her Final Memory is one of the best in the game, being a fast reversal that does incredible damage, is easily comboed into, and is difficult to punish.

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, things turn for the worse...

Nayuki (asleep) was part of EFZ's original cast.

She is commonly referred to as "Neyuki" (or "Neyu" for short) to distinguish her from Nayuki (Awake). The nickname is derived from the Japanese word 寝 (ne), which means "sleep".

Stage: In Front of the Minase House (Day) (水瀬家前(朝))

BGM: 2 Steps Toward

Character-Specific Notes

  • Nayuki's ground dash is a long leap off the ground which can be cancelled into air normals. The first attack she does during her this dash will not be an overhead, but attacks chained after will function as normal.
  • Nayuki is able to airdash one to three times, depending on her jam level. If that wasn't unusual enough, it sends her about 45 degrees downward and cannot be "held" like a normal airdash, only being cancellable with air normals. If not cancelled, she will descend forever until faceplanting into a knockdown state when she lands on the ground. This self-inflicted knockdown does not subtract a jam. Additionally, at 8+ jam, Nayuki is the only character whose airdash is an attack itself.
  • Nayuki is one of a few characters who gain some throw invincibility after double jumping.
  • There is a number just above Nayuki's SP gauge indicating her current Jam Level. This Jam Level starts at 3 every match, increases by 1 every time she uses her 5S or 214*~S (up to a maximum of 9), and decreases by 1 every time she is knocked down by the opponent (down to a minimum of 0). The knockdown that happens whenever a round is lost also subtracts a Jam Level. Jam Level affects almost everything about Nayuki, determining what moves she can use, her walk speed, and much more. The most notable features of each Jam Level are listed below.

Nayuki leans her head forward, leaps headfirst in a drilling charge, then faceplants. This move travels further the higher level her jam level is. Useful to reset pressure, as the leap causes Nayuki to move forward while allowing her to attack at the same time.

1 The first subframe of this hit's active will have an inactive hitbox until Jam Level 6.

2 The aerial hits of this can be cancelled into air backdash but not a forward airdash. At Jam Level 5 and above, they can also be cancelled into jC.

Nayuki takes a short but high leap and quickly extends her leg for a kick as she comes down. This move is an overhead, but a very slow one. Going for a tick throw is generally a safer bet than using this, however this can be IC'd into real damage unlike a throw.

If not cancelled into anything Nayuki will flip over Keropii and fly forward, completely defenseless. At 6 jams or higher, the first hitbox is active and will knock airborne or tall standing opponents (Akiko, Mai, Misaki, Minagi, and Kanna) to the ground.

Nayuki gets kicked at a 30 degree angle toward the ground by Keropii. Can be cancelled into additional airdashes. Even if Nayuki is not high enough level for the airdash to be an attack, the move cannot be cancelled until the "active frames" are over.
※ Landing from an uncancelled airdash will result in Nayuki entering a unique self-knockdown state. It has the same animation as a normal knockdown and Nayuki is still invincible during it, but she does not lose a Jam Level and wakes up 0.33 frames faster.

1000 Grab 6.33 0.66 27.66 / / None

Nayuki picks the opponent up by their feet and tosses them behind her for a sideswitch. Tied for the slowest normal throw, but can be comboed off of with Black Demon setups at least.

This grab has a unique glitch: if Nayuki whiffs it and is hit between frames 27-29, no pushback will occur and she'll restart the grab from the beginning instead of taking hitstun. The repeated grab can still hit the opponent and can trigger the glitch again (for infinites, even) but anything that impactful should almost never happen in a match. The most practical effect it might have is reducing scaling on a punish combo since the first hit technically doesn't put Nayuki into hitstun.

A - Any / 34 ~ 43※ 22 - - FIC

Nayuki drops Keropii in front of her and kicks it directly forward, almost parallel to the ground. This move can be used to keep opponents away, hindering ground advances. The long startup makes this move less useful than most other character's projectiles.

B - Any / 34 ~ 43※ 22 - - FIC

Nayuki kicks Keropii diagonally, hindering aerial opponents instead. It's just as slow as the A version.

C - Any I: 0.33 - 33.66 ~ 42.66※ 34 ~ 43※ 22 - - FIC

Keropii is kicked in an arc similar to the A version's but goes further and hits up to 5 times, while Nayuki is also invincible during startup. A slow reversal, but keeps the opponent blocking long enough that Nayuki can eat a free jam.

S / Any / 34 ~ 43※ / 4 / / None

Feint version where Nayuki drops Keropii but doesn't kick him. It has almost the same opportunity cost as eating jam with none of the benefit, so it's hard to justify using.

Nayuki leaps forward while kicking. Does a different amount of kicks depending on jam level. This move has low invuln all throughout startup.

  • Jam Level 2: Does only the first kick. A decent grounded combo ender that knocks down opponents and allows time to eat one jam.
  • Jam Level 5: Does two kicks. An even better grounded combo ender which allows time to eat one jam, or can be IC'd into 5B in order to eat two.
  • Jam Level 7: Does three kicks. The worst version of this move. The third hit knocks enemies upward enough to allow them time to tech, which means Nayuki cannot eat jam when ending a combo with this move.

  • Extremely unsafe on block or whiff.

Nayuki lies down on Keropi, entering her sleep stance. ※ A large variety of followups are available from this move. Looks similar to her downed state, but does not decrease jam level. Has some invincibility frames, making it useful for baiting wakeups and countering. While in this stance, Nayuki is low to the ground and able to low profile some projectiles.

Keropii is there
550 Any / 14.33 40 ~ 49※2 / - None

Nayuki grabs a Keropii out of the ground and flings it upward. Knocks the opponent down on hit, and its angle can be controlled by holding 4 or 6. Covers a large area and is great for anti air or slowing approaches. You are very vulnerable if it is RG'd due to the long recovery time of the move.

Nayuki switches from playing a fighting game to a shoot 'em up, arming herself with two Keropiis that fire fullscreen lasers periodically. Nayuki can slowly fly in any direction via directional input, and the number and frequency of lasers is based on the level of the super. The lasers knock opponents upward faster than Nayuki can move, so a particular rhythm is required to get the most hits out of each version.

  • A Version: Hold up and hit with all 4 sets of beams. You can start holding down halfway between the 3rd and 4th hits.
  • B Version: Hit with first beams, drop altitude and whiff 2nd, hit with 3rd and 4th, drop and whiff 5th, hit with 6th, 7th, and 8th, then immediately lower altitude.
  • C Version: This version is difficult to control and not worth using the meter on.

Nayuki gets picked up by Keropii and is spun around at high speeds, before cannonballing across the stage and exploding at the wall. After the explosion, Nayuki is blown away from the wall at a very high speed and angle.

  • This move does a crazy high amount of damage when it is comboed into, and does more the farther away Nayuki is from the wall. Nayuki can airdash forward and continue a combo after the explosion.
  • A strong reversal as despite the long recovery, this move is almost unpunishable on block due to the combination of the fullscreen pushback and Nayuki's ability to cancel her recovery very early (frame 19 of recovery) with FIC or an airdash to make pinning her down difficult. Even on whiff, the space that Nayuki flies through during recovery is difficult for the opponent to cover after dodging the attack, and even if they do it's another challenge to turn that punish into a combo.
  • As you may expect from the input, this move can be whiff cancelled into from most normals.


Low Jam

  • In general, a Neyuki player will want to eat jam as soon as possible, so at low jams, you will want to play safe, build meter, and look for openings. As Neyu has no sweep, you need to build meter for the knockdown from 214214A, especially if you fall below 2 jams. One strategy is to jC constantly in the air to build meter, and use her airdash to attempt to run from the opponent. Neyuki's airdash is very unique, sending her down at an angle and removing her ability to block or RG, but she can cancel it into an attack at any point in time. Try not to airdash in on an opponent with good antiairs. Once you have some meter or IC, you can mix up your play with 5C IC and confirm into a 5BC 623B knockdown into jam. Once you gain enough jams, 41236C becomes a very good DP option and allows you to jam up as well. Continue your strategy of playing safe until you reach high-jam status (8-9 jams).

High Jam

  • Neyuki with 8+ jams rises in the tiers to become a good character, and boasts some of the better frame data, as well as having extremely good mobility, and a hitbox on her airdash. Neyuki can now play a rushdown style of gameplay. Since 5C is jump cancelable even on block, you can continue pressure as long as the opponent does not RG you in bad spots. A blocked 5C into airdash keeps the opponent in hitstun and allows you to mixup with either an empty low or a jB cancel. Continue pressure until you get a hit, or you feel the opponent is going to reversal, at which point you can jump back and avoid it. Both 623C and 41236C are excellent enders to Neyuki's loop combos and allow her to continue pressure afterwards. If you get knocked down, revert to playing safe until you can gain high-jam again.

0 Jam

  • 0 Jam Neyuki requires a special type of playstyle to accommodate her lack of pretty much anything. 0 Jam will want to play extremely lame, abusing jC whiffs to build meter and only going in when she has resources. You cannot rely on 623B for a knockdown once you get knocked down twice, so you must have meter in order to start really playing. Despite being an objectively wrong decision in most ways, 0 Jam Neyuki still has some mixups she can go for instead of jamming up. Various mixups you can incorporate include 66jAAB(2) for a 3-hit overhead, 66jAAB(1)C(whiff) 2A for a 2-hit overhead, 66jAAC(whiff)2A for 1-hit overhead into low, or 66jA land throw. When you have the opponent in the corner, you can time your dj 66 jB to be both a safejump, as well as having a varying number of hits. You can also go for jC(whiff) into 2A 5B 2C starter. If ever you run out of meter or don't feel safe you can back out and start your jC spam again.

Zzz~ (214)

  • 214 has several frames of full invulnerabilty, as well as bringing Neyuki's hitbox very close to the ground. You can bait several DPs with this, as well as safejump some slower DPs with j66 j214B, which will whiff on an opponent DP and crouch under it, or will allow the jB to hit and let the 214 fall out of the buffer before you land.

Bombs (236236)

  • Bombs are the metered version of Neyuki's mixups. Optimally, you will want to use these to gamble on higher damage to finish off an opponent. However, getting one out is more difficult the lower your jam level is. At higher levels, you can 41236C and drop a bomb immediately. At lower levels, you can use an option select to get one out: 5B jAB(1)C djA[6]~j236C land 236A. The j236C will airthrow the opponent if they tech, and the land 236A will throw a bomb if they don't. Because her second jC is so late coming out, you can only tech trap with an airthrow and not a jC. From here you can do a 66 mixup or 6B or throw, all of which will lead to good damage on a hit.
