General Gameplan

Neutral

Pressure

Blockstrings:

Forward moving normals are 5B, 2C, 6AA. For inspiration see here: 1/2 (Niconico) or 1/2 (Youtube)

With held orbs:

I put these strings under strategy/pressure as it is not advisable to use these as canned strings, but to give an idea to orb uses.

Ground strings, assuming an already held orb:
  • Hold [A]: 2B 5B 5C 214B ]A[ 66 etc
If you hold [A] orb, you can use 2AB/5AB 5E 214AB ]A[, for easier execution. Mixup between high and low with 2B or 5B first here.
  • Hold [A]: 2B 5B 5C 236B ]A[ Arc Drive/Any EX that will reach.
If the orb hits before 236B does, cancel 5C into 236B then release the orb after.
You can cancel all the hits from 236B except the last one with an EX or an Arc Drive.
  • Hold [C]: 66 5A6A (delay) 6A (dl) 2B (dl) 2A ]C[
Holding [C] leaves some nice stagger and reverse beat options.


Jump-in strings assuming a held orb:

(these are best in the corner, but you can space stuff like this midscreen too and put teh FEARINTHEM

  • Hold [A]: IAD jB/C (land) 2B 5B 5C 214B ]A[ etc
Can condition the opponent into blocking low after jump-ins for fuzzy fun.
  • Hold [A]: j.C j.236A (land) 2B 5B 5C ]A[
  • Or: (High) j.C 66 j.C 623A (land) 2B 5B 5C ]A[
Leads to pretty much the maximum damage H-Aoko can deliver. Followed by a low-proration combo (66 2B 5B 5C 2C 3C etc) making it damaging.
  • Hold [B]: j.[C] ]B[ 66 j.AB (land) ...(Any combo)
"j.C, 66 j.AB" combos for a high damage 3-hit starter, and can condition the opponent into blocking high for a few hits then low with 2B... see fuzzy combos.


Fuzzy:

The options haven't changed from PS2, see the PS2 wiki and read the meltybread.com threads on Actress Again and Current Code .
Also check videos such as:


  • j.C 66 j.AB 9j.B j.C
Orbless, 9j.B is fuzzy.
  • j.C 66 j.AB 9j.B j.C 623A
Orbless, same fuzzy but 623 combos off of j.C.
  • Hold [A]: IAD deep j.B instant 9j.B ]A[ 66 j.B (land) ...(Any combo)
The "double j.B then orb pop" hits fuzzy on the second j.B and the orb provides hitstun till you land even without the airdash j.B.
  • Hold [B]: j.[C] ]B[ 66 j.AB instant 9j.B ]B[ (land) ...(Any combo)
The fourth hit, the second j.B is fuzzy here again. Extended approach from the third jump-in string above.


With an orb out, cover the charge or combo out of 4[c] overhead.

Example In the corner:

  • Hold [A]: IAD j.B 214[B]~]A[ (land) 4[C] ]B[ 66 ...(Continue combo)
Falling j.B, j.214[B] pops an air orb on them, but keeps the first orb held to use after 4[C].


Carefully placed j.214A/B air orbs will fling the opponent upwards if you throw them into it. If you get a maximum range ground throw onto an air orb you will have enough time to superjump up and confirm them, even connect j.214C and continue on the ground. Just around or above Aoko's head height is ideal placement to work. Doesn't matter about charged orbs or not. Pretty sure all Aokos can do this.

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 Combos

The suggested way to do the "4[C] 66 XX" link is 4[C] 66~[3]~A/B 2C. For example, dash then shift to hold 3 and do a late 3A 2C instead of 2AC.
For corner carry and meterless damage/okizeme, it's important to learn the "4[C] 66 (2A/2B/2C)" combos. They also leave you with a jump cancel for whatever shenanigans. This is stressed even more so against characters who can be hit by 4[C] 66 2B.

Midscreen/Fullscreen Whiff Cancel Combos

These combos are examples of meterless, fullscreen carry with different knockdown options. Combining the dash link (4[C] 66 2A/2B/2C) with other BNBs gives aoko great opportunity to land high damage oki setups from any good starter.
There are many variations in whiffcancelling, the ones listed here (in my opintion) seem the most stable.
Note the combos don't use 5[C] before 4[C] midscreen. (Usually there is not enough gravity, but it will work in some combos with added gravity or in the corner)

Metered Combos:

H-Aoko can pretty much play without needing to use meter in combos. However, metered combos are good for setups from airthrows, awkwards long distance confirm 2B/2C's into 214C or j214C and easier air counter-hit conversion than the loop. 214C Circuit Break kills your opponents meter on hit but doesn't nearly last long enough; you'll probably be spending the elsewhere.

Any airstring ending on superjC will allow you to combo to j214C, land and continue. Commonly with 5[C]4[C].
The cancel/link between 'j.C and j.214C' is tight, learning the heights that it will whiff at just takes time. j.BC > j.BC > j214C will work with decent delays between 2C > 5C > 3C and gravity taken into consideration.
Remember: only 3 groundbounces (4[C]'s) per combo, and only one '5A6AA 5[C]' will connect.


Examples of j.214C combos:

This allows you to drop like F-Moon and stay on the same side. Continue the combo or set up oki. delay 2C > 5C > 3C to keep them really low or you wont make the j.C > j.214C link.

5154
Meter Gained: -2.8 Meter Given (vs C-Moon): ???
Orb momentum will throw you forwards after j.214C. Does work if you are not in the corner but you will land and combo back towards the centre. Learn to hit 5[C] late after j.214C, get them low.


Circuit break combos
Note: 214C OTGs and launches with circuit break, so you can empty dash after 4[C] for example, and get closer than '214B xx 214C' will allow.

Always walk backwards to near-max 5A range after each 4[C] to keep the loop working. Timings are very char dependent, good luck.

Character Specifics

For more damage, '4[C] > 2B > 2C' works instead of '4[C] > 2A > 2C' or '4[C] > 2C' in all combos but 2B will only connect on half the cast. 2b's active frames and hitbox make for much more lenient timing especially on dash combos. '2B > 2C > (5A)6AA' also ensures that 5A will always whiff, if you're too close after dash 2C, 5A will hit and ruin the 4[C] setup.

The list below shows the character divides for pickups in ground combos,(usually after a ground bounce from 4[C]) while the image below and right shows which characters can be picked up after an airthrow. The only difference is that the purple characters can not be picked up atall with either 2A or 2B after an airthrow. For example, in midscreen ground combos, Nero can be pickedup with either 2A or 2B. However after an airthrow, neither will work.

H-Aoko airborne opponent pickup
H-Aoko pickup/juggle POST AIRTHROW. Purple chars work with a 2a pickup in ground combos.

2B pickup works on :

2A or just 2C instead picks up :

Notes:

  • 2B > 2C pickup actually works against ALL the cast after you pop a held orb for an air CH!
  • Whiff cancel combos midscreen all work VS Nero, but once you reach the very corner most strings will not whiff but hit instead, amking invalids. Use the difficult 'Meter building loop' for max damage potential VS the farm.
  • Have some (pretty much) Nero specific combos : H-Aoko - Nero Corner Specific Loops

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.

A 1000 588 100% 5.6% -EX- LHA 16 4 15 -1 -

Aoko shoots a beam out of her hand. This move is primarily used for sniping your opponent going for greedy IADs and badly spaced jumpins.

B 500*6 (2763) (1593) 100% 3.5%*6 (21.0%) -EX- LHA 33 12 19 -10 -

Aoko chills for a bit before shooting a large laser that is fullscreen. Has a first short-ranged vertical hitbox for 2 frames, followed by the fullscreen one that will generally whiff on crouching opponents.

~236A 500*2 (984) (567) 100% 5.0%*2 (10.0%) - - - - - - -

Aoko spends some quality time charging before she fires a full screen laser that is unblockable. This isn't that great, since it can be dodged on reaction as it takes so damn long to come out. It's alright to do this on rare occasion to keep your opponent from feeling safe at full screen, but it's not going to hit very often. This version doesn't hit opponents right next to you, but has a wider hitbox.

Inputting 236A > 236A after the charge flash makes a few more lasers come out. Always do this if you do 236[B] as it adds on some damage and looks cool (that's the important part).

A version of the wheelkick hits twice and the second hit is an overhead. This move is good as an antiair or to beat mashing. It's not fully invincible on startup but it's ok for antiairing if you use it cleanly. Caution: -8 on block. This move is used in combos to set up Kicking Ass!, leaving you a very strong tech punish setup.

B 800 624 100% 8.0% - HA 30 3 9 6 -

This has some startup time (you can easily get mashed out of it) and hits overhead. +6 on block.

EX wheelkick. You can use this move as a reversal. It's generally better to do it on wakeup since bunker is a lot safer to go for in the middle of a blockstring. This does decent damage and takes Aoko across half the screen (unless your opponent blocks it standing) very fast. It's -13 on block so you better be prepared for some pain if your opponent baited you.

Version Damage Red Damage Proration Circuit Cancel Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv Invuln
A 1000 768 100% 7.0% -EX- LHA 12 X 29 -4 -

Aoko puts her hand on the ground and shoots a shockwave of energy. You can have up to two out on the screen at a time. This version of the move travels the slowest. This move's main use is to keep your opponent from sitting on the other side of the screen when you have some held orbs up. It's -4 on block if you do it at point blank range so don't use it in a blockstring unless you pushed yourself a decent distance away. After, 3C from its max effective range with a jumpcancel/rebeat or special cancel to 214C

B 1000 768 100% 7.0% -EX- LHA 10 X 36 -8 -

This travels faster than the A version. This is mainly used to peg opponents who want to sit away from you in fullscreen, and in the 4[C] combo in midscreen. Always, always cancel into 214C if you're using it after 4[C] because its -8 on block at point-blank range.

C 400*3, 1000 (2028) (1446) 100%*3, 50% (O) -100.0% - LHA 5+5 X 32 14 -

EX version. This causes circuit break on hit and you are very plus if all 4 hits are blocked. This move is great if you combo into it since it takes away all metered wakeup options your opponent has.

Generates an orb in front of Aoko. Its explosion can be delayed indefinitely by holding A, B or C. Up to two orbs can be there at a time. Inputting 8 while holding sends the orb ~double jump height from the ground. This is extremely useful in certain matchups, like vs that whore Warc who likes to be in the air a lot.

B (Min) 800 624 70% (M) 5.6% - LHA 42/51 X 7/None 18 -

C version sends an orb ~full screen distance from her. You can use the C version to punish wakeup heat/backdash after you do an aircombo in midscreen.

A few warnings about this move: --If you're holding A you can't throw or airthrow. --If you're holding B you can't dodge. --If you're holding C if you input 236B you're forced to do 236[B].

A 800*3 (1470) (882) 50% (O) 2.8%*3 (8.4%) -EX- LHA 15 6 36 -2 -

Summons a pillar directly in front of Aoko. This is a nice way to end pressure because if your opponent tries to mash or jump they'll get hit by this and you can get a small combo out of it. If your opponent blocks it, it's rock/paper/scissors after it unless you cancel into a super. 3C beats jump, 2A > 2C beats certain backdashes, 623B beats other backdashes, 623A beats mashing, crouching block beats heat or a reversal.

B 800*3 (1470) (882) 50% (O) 2.8%*3 (8.4%) -EX- LHA 23 6 33 1 -

The pillar comes out further in front of Aoko. This is also a nice away to end pressure if you're a bit further away. It's also RPS after it unless you cancel into a super with your opponent having the same options.

EX 250*20 (3083) (2362) 100% -100.0% - LHA 3+15 28 22 -13 -

Aoko shoots multiple pillars. This move has only very limited uses. Its main use is for beating super armor (such as Kouma 22C) You can also use it after a 5[C] used as an anti air if your opponent gets hit by that. The last use is kind of limited but it beats teching away from Aoko in midscreen after a throw or a neutral tech. The only problem is you have to input 22C before your opponent actually hits the ground to cover neutral tech.

B 150*8 (1065) (340) 100% 1.05%*8 (8.4%) - LHA 28 2 (2) x8 17 23 Reflect 29-58

The circle takes some time to come up aka you can get mashed going for this, but if your opponent blocks you get of +23. If your opponent tries to jump out after you used a normal with a good amount of blockstun and you use this move you get free guardbreak(not guardcrush.) This move is pretty good in rushdown once you get your opponent to start respecting your blockstrings.

EX 200*8 (1422) (1044) 100% -100.0% - LHA 3+10 2 (2) x8 20 20 Full 1-3, Reflect 14-43

This is a quicker version of B mirror but at the cost of 100 meter. This isn't really that great since Aoko has many better ways to use the meter and it's even 3 less +frames than B version. The only time to use it is after a blocked 22A, preferably if you're in heat.

(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.
