Overview

Playstyle
H-Akiha is a slow, hard-hitting tank with good meter gain.
Pros Cons
  • Large Health Pool: Has the highest health in the game. It is debatable whether this version of Akiha has the most health out of the 3.
  • Great Damage: Combos reach 5k damage. Combos are flexible in terms of execution, but generally more effort = more reward.
  • Corner carry and oki: Most combos can lead to corner oki situation. The oki with j.236B is pretty good.
  • Good Pressure: Pressure resets, safe meaties, command grab, triple overhead, fuzzy. Shes got it all.
  • Slow Neutral: Because she doesn't have air ribbons like other Akihas, she is less mobile in the air.
  • Poor defence: H-Akiha lacks good reversals. Inability to exguard, and being forced into H-Moon shield counter also doesn't help.

General Gameplan

H-Akiha essentially plays similar Akiha neutral in which she uses her jumps and super double jumps to leverage advantage over their opponent. The only key difference from F and C is that H-akiha doesn't have ribbons at all like the others. H-Akiha then has auto detonation pits. Not particularly too useful in neutral unless its someone committed to the ground. She's fitted with the ability to reverse beat which makes her corner mixups decent enough to end the matches there. Her combos typically corner carry across the board.

Neutral is slightly lacking due to loss of ribbons so you will have to depend on your fundamentals to aid you in navigating neutral but you do have a good jump-in called j.C to boot. Once you get a hit, corner carry and use j.236B after j.2C to discourage jump outs since it hits meaty if you don't hold the B button to delay its detonation. A good rushdown character like any H moon character with good corner carry and mixups to boot. Neutral and pressure is not as strong as the other Akihas.

Neutral

Neutral unlike the other moons of this Akiha is very barebones. You mainly will be looking to be at venues to leverage your j.C as it's your best jump-in. Other than that, H-Akiha can use her dash to move in spots since all moons of Akiha Tohno can block frame 1. Dash 2C can be good in places where you cross under and trip guard the opponent, dash 4C is also good since its a fast command normal that hits a lot of space. Again to stress, a lot of H-Akiha's air normals hit downward so its much better for her to be above the opponent.

Occasionally use j.22X to force the awareness that the opponent cannot stay on the ground idly. Other than that it will really depend on your understanding of how melty's neutral interactions and the demand for micro decisions work in order to work with her in neutral simply due to not having ribbons.

Pressure

A lot of her pressure is simple melty pressure with H and C moons where you use rebeats to disguise pressure resets within the staggers. Some examples include:

  • 2AA > 5B, 5B
  • 2AA > 5B > delay 2C
  • 2AA > 5B > 5A6A > 214B
  • 2AA > 5AA, dash grab
  • 2AA > 5AA > delay 6AA
  • 2AAAA, IAD j.B/j.C

These are basic examples but should send the point that with enough staggers you can even incorporate things like 236A into your pressure ideas. You also have a fuzzy overhead set up by doing IAD j.B > dj.CB as well to aid in your pressure. Be sure to take advantage of your 5B's long cancel window since it will be an important frame trap window. Of course when they respect your pressure enough you can then attempt to grab and if they are looking to OS or mash you can then deter than with instant j.2C or 236A. 214B is + but has considerable start up that can be either shielded, jumped out of or backdashed so be sure to show other options and not default to a single option to rotate from.

Okizeme

Her oki after j.2C is probably her strongest point as you can decide to either include j.236B or not. Most times you will want to add j.236B in order to make her oki stronger since web meaties opponents and in extension to that it also enforces respect. Some of the oki options if you include web (j.236B) that also works without web are these.

  • super jump into low
  • super jump delay air dash j.C
  • dash grab (better if you have j.236B set)
  • super jump j.CB
  • super jump j.A air dash j.C

There's plenty more you can learn from matches but these are some ideas to start you off.

Defense

There's not much to this Akiha's options since her shield is much weaker, no EX Guard mechanics, etc, but here's some defensive options:

For abare you have 2A and 4C, both good at their own ranges and work for different purposes. 2A is really good if you manage to incorporate 1A~D in your defensive options while 4C is a fast command normal that hits far. Other than that you do have dodge, shield, metered bunker, regular bunker and jump and block all of which has its consequences/risks to them. Out of those options block and jump when its time to do so is the least risky option but if you always choose this option it can be a detriment to your defense overall. so be sure to recognize when to metered bunker, dodge, shield or even dash out of the corner if the opponent presents enough of a gap to do so.

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.

Meter Gained: 138.3 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): 100.8 (Video)
A stylish combo that only works if you started from barely outside of the corner. It corner carries to the full corner otherwise and gives a lot of meter gain in the process. The trickiest part about this combo is the section regarding 6C > 2C after the first rep of 5A6AA. To do this combo you want to slight delay all of your 5A6AA reps to ensure you get parts after to connect in a stable manner.

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

Clash = Frames in which clash boxes are active.
Reflect = Frames in which projectile-reflecting boxes are active.
Super Armor = Frames in which the character can take hits without going into hit stun.

Akiha's bunker bears special mention, as it has several odd properties: it has a low profile and hitboxes (though it still hits mid), and it moves her forward. Even on whiff, it can get you out of corner, especially if the opponent went into the air.

Due to its odd properties, however, it can fail you when you need it for regular bunker things, especially hitting airborne enemies. Generally, it's considered awkward and unreliable.

Universal burst mechanic. Unlike Crescent/Full Heat activation, the hitbox and frame data doesn't vary between characters. However, you can be thrown out of this move if you input it in the air.

Akiha's 623X series, also known as Momiji. Akiha runs to the opponent, launches them (if they aren't airbone already) and sending them to the ground with a slash. Despite being dragon punches, they are all weak reversals.

Has ten frames of invincibility on Akiha's lower body and can be EX-Cancelled before you go into the airborne part of this move.

The first hit has minimal hitstun. This means that hitting an extended hurtbox can make the second hit whiff, letting the rest be blocked. 623C shares the same issue.

Akiha's metered true reversal. Very easy to outspace, jump over, or just otherwise cover, and it's hitbox and frame data leave much to be desired. Can be normal cancelled on hit after the last part, making it a fairly high damage reversal. OTG Relaunches

Akiha summons a pillar of fire in front of her. All versions are unblockable mid-air. However, they can be shielded.

A version summons a pillar at a distance of two character lengths. Has fast startup so it can be used as an anti-air. Its high recovery leaves Akiha vulnerable if the move does anything but hit.

Summons a pillar at a distance of two character lengths. Has the same range of the A version but slower startup. However, it has little to none recovery, so it puts Akiha on an advantage if blocked. Being single-hit, a counter-hit can be followed up by anything.

The charged version has even slower startup and hits at a distance of five character lengths, being very risky to use. It also hits twice, spoiling counterhits, but you can follow up a hit with IAD or a forward superjump.

A tracking pillar that hits for 2422 damage unprorated. Pretty quick activation, appears under the opponent no matter where they are, though they have enough time to airdash out. Has an almost infinite vertical range but due to being multi-hit the opponent can tech out of it.

The ex-pillar is insurance, at a certain point during the startup, the projectile will be guaranteed and won't disappear on hit.

This Arc Drive will try to grab the opponent instantly after the 55f superflash, and if it cannot, will go into a far-reaching upward multi-hit claw strike. This throw hitbox is actually blockable in the air only, making it an unique ground unblockable.

You can add more hits on a successful grab by pressing buttons, but it will make it actually do less damage if you do it without thinking.
You should only start mashing towards very end, when the proration of the AD already went down. This then can increase damage up to 3698.
