Overview

Strengths

Weaknesses
  • TBD.

One of the church's holy executioners, Ciel arrives at Misaki Town to hunt down and destroy the newest reincarnation of the Serpent of Akasha. Lover of curry, Disliker of mapo Tofu, Ciel is a jack-of-all-trades character with diverse tools, amazing mobility and space control options and the ability to hold her own comfortably against most of the cast. The Full moon version of Ciel forsake some of her other moons' movement and full screen options for complete specialization in the midrange, gaining tools such as her flipper punch 236X series, grounded diagonal projectiles 214B and 214C, excellent grounded normals and a pseudo running bear style command grab 63214x series. This variation of Ciel is excellent for those that still want her "shoto"-esque while also wanting flashy, high damaging combos, less awkward B buttons and in general a more active playstyle.

Combos

Unless otherwise stated, all of these combos were tested on standing crescent moon VSion with critical hits turned off. Furthermore, instead of air throw ender you can opt to use either j.214C instead for a hard knockdown or j.22C for extra damage if the opponent is about to die.  
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.

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 sharp kick to shins. Despite its appearance, this standing attack strikes low and must be guarded in this manner. However, because it is a standing non-A attack, it can only be high shielded. Does not down or launch on hit against crouching targets (as opposed to Crescent/Half styles). Yields +1 advantage and little push back on guard making it effective in guard strings, namely staggers and guard string/chain rests. 5B as a defensive poke can be useful when spaced properly. If the opponent pushes themselves out too far after strings, 5B will stuff (and sometimes armor) attempts to close back in with A attacks. However, Ciel must remain in neutral to avoid accidental 4B’s and using 2B (or 1B) as a defensive poke is far too slow in extreme cases.

A turning, back-hand fist at head level. Common in block strings and some juggle combos. Has cancelable frames up until returning to neutral state making it effective for staggers into such attacks as Flipper Low, Calvary Toss, or a late 4C to nail opponents trying to move when pressured.

First Active Active Recovery Frame Adv Circuit Invuln
19 5 12 1 7.2% Clash 5-15

A charged turning back-hand with a dagger. Very similar to 5C in appearance but differences include:

-More startup

-Slightly increased range (due to dagger extension)

-Advantage on guard (+1)

-Launches target on hit

-More guard damage

-Triggers upper-body clash

The advantage on guard and the guard damage dealt are significant enough for it to be used (moderately) in strings. By utilizing the advantage, Ciel is able to sort of emulate rebeat strings that are common to Crescent and Half styles when in close. E.g. 5[C] > 5A – this will ultimately stuff any attempts to poke out (5[C] > 5B will stuff slower 2A’s such as C-Warachia’s). Because of its slow startup, 5[C] is prone to being shielded and semi-charging (half charge) occasionally to throw off the opponent’s timing is encouraged. Probably 5[C]’s most valued asset is its ability to consistently force a clash against high attacks and attacks that strike roughly by the head level. When 5[C] is partially charged, its clash frames become active and will remain so up until about the point the “spark” animation occurs (frame 5-15). Once the clash has been spotted, release 5[C] to absorb then blow through the opponent’s attack. Releasing at the correct moment will even allow Ciel to quickly blow through some multiple hitting attacks such as C-Nanaya j.B or Nero j.B. 5[C] (until clash)>236A can result in a (proper) launcher that can lead to Flipper Loops for optimal damage or result in a down if the target has fallen too low to follow up correctly (okizeme/wake up game can be incorporated here instead). Lastly, 5[C] can clash against many (but not all) types of DP moves which can really mitigate some characters wakeup options. (C-WLen 214A and Tohno 623A are primary examples).

First Active Active Recovery Frame Adv Circuit Invuln
5 4 5 3 3.6% -

A (very) short-ranged elbow strike. Although this is F-Ciel’s fastest low attack it has extremely poor range and should be used with caution. Attempts to string more than two 2A’s (not from a dash) will usually result in a whiff on the third if not spaced precisely. This does not make it entirely useless, as it is her fastest low poke, but when in doubt stick to strings like 2A > 5B or 2B or 2C for safe measures. 5B, which is but 1f slower, is another alternative to starting a low offense.

Ciel strikes low with a blade. This mid-ranged low strike is slower than 2C but has more range and better recovery. 2B is effective in staggered strings (usually late from 5B) and when engaging in footsies at about just outside of two character spaces. Against opponents who tend to dash in to cover ground, fish with a max range 2B>236A (even on whiff) to stop them in their tracks. As mentioned earlier, 2B’s recovery on whiff is solid and will often go unpunished by IADs. If the opponent happens to guard, 236A (Flipper Low) is safe even in this instance.

Charged (not-so-generic-anymore) axe kick. Same properties as 4B (cancel points, invincibility, etc.) but is a high strike overhead that must be guarded standing. Landing one of these opens the opponent up for huge damage potential with the most common starter (possibly the most practical) being 4[B]>214a then whatever follow up is desired. Charging 4[b] past a certain point will also trigger its clash frames. This is one of the few attacks in MBAA that will consistently result in clash but because the clash is active at about head level, it can only used versus high attacks in that strike that area (*See 5[C]). Because of this, it is highly recommended against jump ins.

After successfully landing the axe kick, Ciel holds the target in place with the initial kicking leg then kicks off with the free leg setting her and the target apart a wide distance. This is a two-part command move that can only be executed when the 4B/4[B] connects with the target. Attempting the command on guard will result in Flipper High (236B) which isn’t necessarily bad as it yields +1. For F-Ciel, the finisher is used often in the following situations:

Corner OTG: The finisher part of the command operates as an untechable throw. Because of this, Ciel is able to end corner OTG strings without having to guess whether or not the opponent will try to recover and escape to a favorable position (which would likely be away from the corner). The distance set after landing the finisher is quite far but will down the opponent long enough to set up a deep jump in attack from a high jump forward (or alternatively high jump forward then early /late airdash to whiff/meaty a jump in attack).

Anti-Airing after forcing Clash: 4[B]’s clash frames trigger sooner than 5[c]’s making it more effective against fast and low aerial approaches (e.g. Aoko’s IAD) or in situations where the player may be too slow to react with 5[c] (e.g. opponent air guards air-to-air string then attempts to fall with attack before landing). The results from landing a 4[b] anti-air from clash are usually inconsistent:

1) The active frames in an opponent’s jumping attack may have already ended resulting in no anti-air counter hit (CH), or:

2)a) Using (A-A 4[B](Clash)>236A) will fail because the target was too high up for the Flipper Low to connect correctly, or:
b) Using the same sequence, the target was hit too low in the jump and a down is forced (you may as well go for 5[c]>236A in this case), or:

3) the 4[B] clashes but is released too late and the opponent is able to guard on landing.
In all instances, following with the 236B finisher will produce a consistent or favorable result:
1, 2a, 2b) Even though the CH does not occur, the 236B finisher will auto-correct and grab regardless of state and position (assuming 4B/[B] has hit).

3) By default Flipper High (236B) will be executed if 4[B] is released to late and is guarded. This is “favorable” as High yields +1 (Low is -1) on guard.

Ciel performs an auto-dash then grabs the opponent, throwing them to the opposite direction. The direction which Ciel throws cannot be controlled under any circumstance. This version will automatically clash with any attack (that’s not a throw) once Ciel has gone into the “full lean” forward (frame 13-28). However, it is only able to clash with a single hit and will lose to multi-hit attacks, mashing or strings that are tied together fast enough. Also, the “clash” does not operate as seen in a normal clash situation; Ciel is unable to jump, attack or even EX cancel once the clash is triggered. Lastly, Ciel remains in a CH state until full recovery. This technique isn’t entirely useless as it may seem from the above list of disadvantages. Although Ciel performs her “normal” ground throw for the attack they are not exactly the same. The advantage gained from the A ver. of Calvary Toss produces enough down time/frame advantage to allow for more elaborate setups that would be impossible from the normal throw. Calvary Toss can also be canceled into from normals (e.g. 2A > 5B > 63214A) making it useful versus overly defensive players or against players who backstep mid-attack string and although not recommended, it can be used spontaneously in defensive situations when spaced properly (e.g. in immediate corner and opponent trying to close in).

B version dashes forward and performs a wallslamming air throw. Does NOT have clash frames. If you carry the opponent to the corner before the slam occurs, certain characters will end up outside of the corner instead of inside. The following will list all the characters that end up outside of the corner: Tohno, Nanaya, Ciel, All types of Sion, All types of Akiha, All types of Hisui(including Mech), Aoko, Nero, Roa. Note that for these characters, you will have to input any followups to the wallslam as if facing the center of the stage.

Exclusive to F-Moon, the EX version throws a single key to the ground that creates a small hitbox behind it that hits low, followed by 3 black waves going forward. Against an airborne opponent, the key will knock the opponent down. A grounded opponent hit by both the key and the low hit will be frozen for a second or so.

The three waves are air unblockable.

Super Armor ?~?

Ciel quickly changes into her executioner uniform, dashes forward with the 7th Scripture and then fires the spike outwards for the finish. This attack sends the opponent flying across the stage. Ciel has hyper armor for a good duration of this move. Not particularly a useful arc drive considering that it doesn't come out very fast and can get stuffed randomly depending on what it's going up against. You can use it to finish a combo if it will kill the opponent since it does more damage than her other supers when used at the end of combos.

Ciel will impale the opponent on the 7th Scripture and fire blasts upwards toward the sky. This version works more like a throw in that if you can get the first hit to connect, the rest of the hits will always connect. It can even catch an opponent in otg state! Does significantly more damage than the regular version and useful for ending combos.

After the EX shield connects, the background will black out and Ciel will throw a series of flaming Black Keys that engulf the opponent in flames. Not one of the greatest last arcs in the game but it can do a significant amount of chip damage. If you land this against a cornered opponent, it can deal upwards of 8000+ damage.
