Overview

Strengths / Weaknesses
Strengths
  • Newbie friendly but still very effective at high level with good fundamentals
  • Well rounded; she’s pretty similar to a Street Fighter "Shoto" in design
  • Double airdash gives her high mobility and offense
  • Her supers provide her amazing utility
  • Has a fireball
  • Has good and simple mix ups
  • Consistent damage
  • Good normals for both air and ground
  • Good ground mobility
Weaknesses
  • Needs meter to access some of her better mix-ups
  • Defensive options are passable at best.
  • 421X series isn't as versatile as her H and C variants.
  • While she can airdash twice before landing, her airdash isn't that long.
  • Like any Aoko variant, she can get clipped by things trying to jump out that other characters wouldn't.

F-Aoko, the many-acclaimed "Shoto" of MBAACC. Fitted with a lot of good normals for neutral, plenty of orbs and even a fireball, F-Aoko is a character whose basics will carry you far in Melty as long as you have strong understanding of the game's fundamentals. While she can very easily sit back and turn the screen into a minefield using 236X, 214X, and j214X, she can also quickly transition from zoning to rushdown in an instant. With the power of 5B, j.B, j.C, and her airdash movement, she can quickly be in your face with stagger pressure and okizeme. Her EX moves also provide tons of utility, chief among those being 214C ("blue fiyah") which can lock the opponent down long enough for her to enforce a mixup. A stable character among many in the world of Melty.

Unique Mechanics

  • Aoko has access to a second airdash.

General Gameplan

Depending on the matchup, F-Aoko can play all ranges of the game's space. In some matches you are free to use 236A liberally, however be warned most characters can simply duck under 236A (with the exceptions being Hime, Nero, Wara). You can also use 214A/B along with TKj.214[A]/[B], allowing four orbs to be on-screen simultaneously. TKj.214[A]/[B] are slightly tougher for opponents to hit to knock the proximity orbs out of place which is nice for F Aoko. What F-aoko could also do is use the orbs as bait and as the opponent goes to swat them away, hit them with 5B and collect your combo. This tactic is also MU specific at times as you may not want to sit back vs the likes of some characters.

Once in the corner there are more frame traps and options available to work with, which will be covered in the Pressure and Okizeme sections.

Neutral

To not repeat too much, it all depends on the matchup. Generally it's never a bad idea to test the waters with 236A to see how your opponent reacts. If they cannot deal with it effectively then feel free to use 236A liberally: vs slow or less mobile characters like Kouma, Tohno, Akiha, for example, you can also afford to use 236A in tandem with 214A/B and see how the opponent plays around them. If they seek to approach from the air you can dash under them if the space permits and even trip guard them with dash under 2C 3C. Be sure to learn the ranges of 5B and play around with it in neutral, its basically the ragna 5B in melty's form. if for some reason you need to meter dump to not end up in max use 236A 236C, its easily avoidable but they have to jump into the air anyways. Its not an auto win neutral tool except for Nero and Hime(without meter) respectively, but it does force the opponent to move around a bit if the opponent wanted to play grounded initially.

In the event you are in MAX and need a safe way to get back health while not pressuring the opponent you can 236A/B IH. While pressuring the opponent you can 63214A IH to not only regain red health but also stay on the offensive.

Pressure

F-Aoko has a lot of tools at her disposal, from 2A/5A/2B being + on block, to 5B being 0 and hard to contest at ranges its stopped at and also catching jump outs there is an endless amount of ways to structure your pressure but here are some pointers/ basics

  • 2A Stagger 5A dash throw
  • 2A stagger 2A redash 2AA
  • 2A stagger 2A 5B 2B, IAD j.B dj IAD j.B
  • 2A 2A delay 5B, 5B (frame traps)
  • 2AAA 5B 4{c} 63214A, OTG pickup (best used in the corner)
  • 2AAA 5B 4[C] OTG pickup (best used in the corner)
  • 2A Stagger 2A stagger 2A slight delay 2B, 5B (frame traps)
  • IAD j.B j.214A, 2AAA (best used in the corner)
  • IAD j.B j.214A, Throw
  • IAD j.B j.214A, IAD j.B dj IAD j.B (best used in the corner)

Metered

  • this is the basic way to set up blue fiyah here's a another example after the first one
  • 2AA 5B 2C 3C 22A 214C
  • 2AA 5B 4{C} 63214A 214C

(Although the above string prevents it, note that if 63214a hits from too far away, then first hit of blue fire will whiff and they can jump out. Blue fire's first hit is always guaranteed to connect after 22a.)

This is only just a small list of things that Faoko can possibly do so be sure to either try things out on the field or in training mode but she has plenty of ways to frame trap you and mix you up through usage of her IAD and the good frames on her buttons. Moving onto Okizeme, another good strength that F-Aoko possesses

Okizeme

F-aoko's oki can spawn from the j214C ender route, if midscreen you got the following enders to use

  • j.214C, 5[C] 4[C], (421A OR 214A/B)
  • j.214C 2C 63214B, (TKj.214[A]/[B]
  • j.214C 2C (delay 214A/B)

the last two are really easy to understand, you can set the orb on top of them with 214A/B and proceed to dash up throw/2A pressure/IAD j.B (possibly even dj IAD j.B) its very simple and effective to make people respect your offense once you get going. Specifically with TKj.214[A]/[B] you can jumpback airdash j.A whiff for an L/R you want to or do iad j.C dj IAD j.AA for more overhead attempts. the first point in which you use 421A is generally for the corner so there's not much merit to it there but you can input 421A again for an overhead and while that's not particularly anything spectacular midscreen it will do a lot of wonders in the corner. Now in the next section it will cover the corner, be sure to experiment with the ender routes and see what works for you.

Corner

Now there's two sections to this but continuing on from one of our ender routes

    • j.214C, (walk back) 2C, (214A/B or 421A~[C])**

421A is a negative edge orb type in which you can hold any button to hold the orb from popping. Now if you input input 421A again, it pops and is now an overhead. So here's a list of mix ups you can try

  • 2C 421A~[C], 421A(meaty), 2AA starter into combo
  • 2C 421A~[C], dash 2AA 5B 2C 3C into aerial sequence
  • 2C 421A~[C] empty jump, [release C], 2AA 5B 2C 3C into aerial sequence
  • 2C 421A~[C], jump, [release C] airdash j.B/j.C

This is just a few things of what you can do after you set 421A down. if you happened to fail in opening up the opponent you still got pressure and if you still have meter either because you chose AT instead of j214C or you had 200 meter, here's a way to use Blue fiyah to try to open the opponent up again.

    • (2AA) 5B 2C 3C 22A 214C**

the parts in parenthesis is when you ended your combo in AT ender. use 5B to meaty as you dash in. When you do this sequence blue fiyah is now active and is keeping the opponent in blockstun so now you can do the following:

  • empty jump low
  • jump delay airdash j.B
  • IAD j.B dj IAD j.B
  • 214A/B IAD j.B dj IAD j.B
  • 214A/B empty jump low or delay airdash j.B

These are just a few examples that F-Aoko can do that simple yet effective. to expand on the last two options, placing a orb right in front of their face is added insurance while you perform pressure strings that were previously covered. With enough time making them block you can actually build another 100% to do another blue fiyah sequence. Making defense against F-aoko downright daunting whenever she has meter present.

Defense

One thing to note about Aoko in general is that she gets clipped more times for jumping out than other characters would. you do have to be more mindful whenever you attempt to escape by jumping out. Aoko also has one of the slower wake ups in the game, not to say depend on your opponent not keeping note of this, but it does make some character's oki a bit different for Aoko. Defense wise you do have the following at your disposal

  • DP
  • Heat(needs to be in max)
  • Backdash

Going over each of these options starting with DP. 623B is indeed a real DP, however its among the slowest DP. a lot of times you can do a meaty 2A vs Aoko on wake up and still have time to block 623B. on top of it being able to be os'sed by clash such as ciel doing 2A 2B after her air throw ender, or hsatsuki doing something to the effect of 2A 5[C] only adds to the conclusion that while 623B is a DP, use it sparingly and use it wisely. Heat she needs to be in 300/max to even utilize, another rather sparingly used option. Backdash is good against making people whiff B and C normals other than that there's not much reason to backdash as hers is poor. With all of this in mind like any melty character you simply bide your time while blocking and ex guarding and attempt to jump out safely. If the opponent is shown to be sloppy with their offense then you can attempt to 2C their redash, but that's to be carefully considered


Combos

Combo Notation Help
Disclaimer: Combos are written by various writers, so the actual notation used in pages can differ from the standard one.

For more information, see Glossary and Controls.

X > Y X input is cancelled into Y.
X > delay Y Must wait for a short period before cancelling X input into Y.
X, Y X input is linked into Y, meaning Y is done after X's recovery period.
X+Y Buttons X and Y must be input simultaneously.
X/Y Either the X or Y input can be used.
X~Y This notation has two meanings.
  1. Use attack X with Y follow-up input.
  2. Input X then within a few frames, input Y. Usually used for option selects.
X(w) X input must not hit the opponent (Whiff).
j.X X input is done in the air, implies a jump/jump cancel if the previous move was done from the ground.

Applies to all air chain sections:

  • Assume a forward jump cancel if no direction is given.
  • Air chains such as j.A > j.B > j.C can be shortened to j.ABC.
sj.X X input is done after a super jump. Notated as sj8.X and sj9.X for neutral and forward super jumps respectively.
dj.X X input is done after a double jump.
sdj.X X input is done after a double super jump.
tk.X Stands for Tiger Knee. X motion must be buffered before jumping, inputting the move as close to the ground as possible. (ex. tk.236A)
(X) X is optional. Typically the combo will be easier if omitted.
[X] Input X is held down. Also referred to as Blowback Edge (BE). Depending on the character, this can indicate that this button is held down and not released until indicated by the release notation.
]X[ Input X is released. Will only appear if a button is previously held down. This type of input is referred to as Negative Edge.
{X} Button X should only be held down briefly to get a partially charged version instead of the fully charged one.
X(N) Attack "X" should only hit N times.
(XYZ)xN XYZ string must be performed N times. Combos using this notation are usually referred to as loops.
(XYZ^) A pre-existing combo labelled XYZ is inserted here for shortening purposes.
CH The first attack must be a Counter Hit.
Air CH The first attack must be a Counter Hit on an airborne opponent.
66 Performs a ground forward dash.
j.66 Performs an aerial forward dash, used as a cancel for certain characters' air strings.
IAD/IABD Performs an Instant AirDash.
AT Performs an Air Throw. (j.6/4A+D)
IH Performs an Initiative Heat.
AD Performs an Arc Drive.
AAD Performs an Another Arc Drive.

Normal starter, grounded opponent,
  • (2AA) > 5B > (2B >) 2C > 3C
2551
Meter Gained: 38.7 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 12.9
Common starter for F-Aoko. Might as well get comfortable with it. The parts in parenthesis such as 2AA is your usual hit confirms from 2A while the 2B you may have to omit in order for this starter to be stable. Cases like that happens around max 5B range.
Normal starter, grounded opponent,
  • 5B > 2C > 3C
1886
Meter Gained: 26.1 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 8.7
A starter that usually happens when you poke with 5B.
Counterhit starter, grounded opponent,
  • CH 5B, 5B > 2C > 3C
2509
Meter Gained: 33.3 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 11.1
CH starter that usually happens when you do 5B, 5B as a frame trap or when used as a poke. Does a nice chunk of damage.
Normal starter, grounded opponent,
  • 3C
850
Meter Gained: 9 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 3
A starter commonly seen if you air throw them in the corner and looking to catch a jump out, 5AA also catches jump outs in that situation as well.
Counterhit starter, grounded opponent,
  • CH 3C, 2C > 3C
1670
Meter Gained: 27 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 9
A starter that's rare but if it does happen then please use this.
Aerial counterhit starter, Airborne opponent,
  • Air CH 2C, 3C
1146
Meter Gained: 18.9 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 6.3
A starter that's used to pick up from aerial counterhit, if you feel its a bit difficult then use 5B into the air sequence you will see in combos.

Enders

Condition Notation Damage
vs V.Sion
Notes
Normal ender
  • AT
1600
Meter Gained: 0 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 0
Common for a Melty blood character is a hard knockdown as well and allows you to dash at your opponent. In the corner its much better since they don't have room to retreat.
Metered enders
  • j.214C 2C 63214B, (tk.214[A]/[B])

*j.214C, 2C,(214A/B OR 421A) *j.214C, 2C 22A, j.ABC sdj.ABC AT

1414, 1044, ~3302
Meter Gained: 8.1, 4.6, ~25.8 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 7.4 , 4.7, ~16.4
This is one of the enders you will use for your j.214C combo route. the first one is midscreen typically and you use TKj.214A/B to plant an orb on them as they wake up, you then either get a L/R mix up or you can simply dash in for pressure. The second one is generally for the corner and depending on what you would like you then get to choose between 214A/B or 421A. 214A/B puts a proximity orb that the opponent can't really do anything about as Aoko applying her IAD pressure in tandem with her staggers. 421A is a held orb above their head and can stay in place while Aoko does airdash mixups or empty jump low while the opponent is kept in blockstun since they are being kept in blocked stun by the released orb. The last extension is mainly for damage and nothing else This is one of her best enders no matter which way you go.
Normal starter, grounded opponent
  • j.214C, 5[C] 4[C], (421A OR 214A/B)
1668
Meter Gained: 8.4 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 107.7
The timing after j.214C is a bit tricky at first, not typically seen but it does create better spacing to either plant a 421A over them or plant a 214A/B.

OTG Pick-Ups

Condition Notation Damage
vs V.Sion
Notes
Normal starter, grounded opponent
  • 2A > 5A(A) > 5B, (2B >) 2C (> 214A/B)
2358
Meter Gained: 33.7 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 111.2
F-Aoko's OTG pickups. Best in the corner since neutral tech and back tech get punished by the orb, if you think they will forward tech, omit the 214A/B and react to the tech with 2C. this is what it looks like. The parts in parenthesis are parts that can be omitted for an adjustment you feel comfortable with.

Normal Combos

4428
Meter Gained: 71.5 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 23.8
Basic string with launcher, you can omit either one or both j.A for easier execution since the loss in damage inflicted is insignificant. Although you can't follow up with orb oki, doing this combo in the corner gives you the chance to do a Melty_Blood/Glossary#Meaty meaty 5B confirm at max range.
Normal starter, grounded opponent, 100% meter
  • (2A >) 5B > 2B > 2C > 3C > j.BC > dj/sdj.C > j.214C, 2C > 63214B (> tk.214[A]/[B])
4185
Meter Gained: 67.9 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 27.3
With some characters such as Nanaya and Aoko herself, you have to replace the double jump cancel with a super jump cancel, otherwise 214C won't hit. Is very likely that you will change sides by doing this which could make the rest of the string very awkward to do or straight up whiff, to fix positioning simply take a step backwards while your opponent falls from the 214C hit.
Normal starter, grounded opponent, 100% meter
  • (2A >) 5B > 2B > 2C > 3C > j.BC > dj/sdj.C > j.214C > 5[C] > 4[C], (421A~[C] or 214A/B)
4294
Meter Gained: 68.3 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 27.6
A more damaging route, a bit tricky on the timing to land the 5[C] link after j.214C
Normal starter, grounded opponent, 100% meter
  • (2A >) 5B > 2B > 2C > 3C > j.BC > dj/sdj.C > j.214C, 2C > 22A, j.ABC > sdj.ABC > AT
5243
Meter Gained: 90.7 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 40.2
Her most damaging combo off of j.214C route. the link is a bit tricky but nothing too difficult.
Normal starter, grounded opponent, 100% meter
  • (2A >) 5B > 2B > 2C > 3C > j.BC > dj/sdj.C > j.214C, walkback 2C, (214A/B or 421A~[C])
4028
Meter Gained: 64.4 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 24.6
This variant is specifically for the corner.
Raw airthrow starter, anywhere
  • Raw AT, (2C >) 3C > j.BC > dj.(B)C > AT
3099
Meter Gained: 49.5 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 16.5
Basic raw airthrow combo. you can choose to include 2C or not if you're execution savvy.
Raw airthrow starter, 100% meter, midscreen
  • Raw airthrow, (2C >) 3C > j.BC > sdj.C > j.214C, 2C > 63214B, (tk.214A/B)
3001
Meter Gained: 51.3 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 21.8
Raw airthrow combo that uses j.214C. you can choose to include 2C or not if you're execution savvy. Ender is the same as the combos listed previously.
Raw airthrow, 100% meter, midscreen
  • Raw airthrow, (2C >) 3C > j.BC > sdj.C > j.214C, 5[C] > 4[C] (> 421A OR 214A/B)
3062
Meter Gained: 51.6 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 22.1
Gold air throw combo that uses j214C that does a little bit more damage. you can choose to include 2C or not if you're execution savvy. ender is the same as the combos listed above.
Shield counter starter
  • D > 236D > 2C > 3C > j.BC > sdj.BC > AT/214C > Enders
2277
Meter Gained: ??? Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 18.0
Shield counter combo. You get the basic idea on how her enders work by this point.


Move Descriptions

Frame Data Help
Header Tooltip
Move Box Colors

Light gray = Collision Box (A move lacking one means it can go through the opponent's own collision box).
Green: Hurt Boxes.
Red: Hit(/Grab) Boxes.
Yellow: Clash Boxes (When an active hitbox strikes a clash box, the active hitbox stops being active. Multi-hit attacks can beat clash since they will still progress to the next hitbox.)
Magenta: Projectile-reflecting boxes OR Non-hit attack trigger boxes (usually).
Blue: Reflectable Projectile Boxes.

Damage Base damage done by this attack.

(X) denotes combined and scaled damage tested against standing V. Sion.

Red Damage Damage done to the recoverable red health bar by this attack. The values are inherently scaled and tested against standing V. Sion.

(X) denotes combined damage.

Proration The correction value set by this attack and the way it modifies the scaling during a string. See this page for more details.

X% (O) means X% Overrides the previous correction value in a combo if X is of a lower percentage.
X% (M) means the current correction value in a combo will be Multiplied by X%. This can also be referred to as relative proration.

Circuit Meter gained by this attack on hit.

(X%) denotes combined meter gain.
-X% denotes a meter cost.

Cancel Actions this move can be cancelled into.

SE = Self cancelable.
N = Normal cancelable.
SP = Special cancelable.
CH = Cancelable into the next part of the same attack (Chain in case of specials).
EX = EX cancelable.
J = Jump cancelable.
(X) = Cancelable only on hit.
-X- = Cancelable on whiff.

Guard The way this move must be blocked.

L = Can block crouching
H = Can block standing.
A = Can block in the air.
U = Unblockable.

Startup Amount of frames that must pass prior to reaching the active frames. Also referred to as "True Startup".
Active The amount of frames that this move will have a hitbox.

(x) denotes frame gaps where there are no hitboxes is present. Due to varied blockstuns, (x) frames are difficult to use to determine punish windows. Generally the larger the numbers, the more time you have to punish.
X denotes active frames with a duration separate from its origin move's frame data, such as projectile attacks. In this case, the total length of the move is startup+recovery only.

Recovery Frames that this move has after the active frames if not canceled. The character goes into one frame where they can block but not act afterwards, which is not counted here.
Advantage The difference in frames where you can act before your opponent when this move is blocked (assuming the move isn't canceled and the first active frame is blocked).

If the opponent uses a move with startup that is at least 2 frames less than this move's negative advantage, it will result in the opponent hitting that move.
±x~±y denotes a range of possible advantages.

Invul Lists any defensive properties this move has.

X y~z denotes X property happening between the y to z frames of the animations. If no frames are noted, it means the invincibility lasts through the entire move.

Invicibility:

Strike = Strike invincible.
Throw = Throw invincible.

Hurtbox-Based Properties:

Full = No hurtboxes are present.
High = Upper body lacks a hurtbox.
Low = Lower body lacks a hurtbox.

Miscellaneous Properties

Another air-to-air button. It has more range than j.A, but is harder to confirm on reaction. It also has a lower hitbox than j.A, making it better against opponents that are underneath Aoko.

A charged version of 4C that becomes an overhead. Relatively slow for an overhead, but can be used alongside 63214A and partially charged 4C to set up ambiguous high/low pressure.

A 800 656 70% (M) 7.2% - LHA 33 16 3 6 -

Aoko points her finger diagonally upwards and shoots out a single orb that stays. The button needs to be held for the orb to stay and also won't hit the opponent as long as its held. Unlike other moons' 421, only one orb can be held at a time. The button used to hold the orb can be switched at any time between A, B and C. Places the orb diagonally upwards at a height slighty above her head.

B 800 656 50% 7.2% - LHA 43 16 N/A 16 -

Places the orb further away and higher than the A ver.

(A or B) Aoko sets up an orb then falls to the ground with the momentum she had before setting up the orb. You can have one orb up for each A, B and EX version at the same time. This move is great in pressure if your opponent will respect you as it grants lots of +frames. It's also good in conjunction with held orbs in neutral to keep your opponent from reaching you.

([A] or [B]) Aoko sets up an orb then falls to the ground without gathered momentum. There are no different properties to the orb after charging them up but you can TK a charged orb to get faster low orb placement than you can get with IABD orb.

Big EX orb. This move has a couple of uses. If you're about to run out of heat you can burn the remaining meter with EX orb to stay relatively safe behind it. The other great use for it is at the end of an air combo so that you can set up a held orb for oki.

Assumes a similar stance to her 236X but instead of pointing forwards with her finger, she pulls her left arm back before she thrust forward like she would punch someone. A giant laser beam then extends out of her fist. After the first beams disappears she then repeats the same move with her right arm.
