Overview

Playstyle
F-Red Arcueid/F-Warc is an accessible and unique zoning character with some strong oki options, in sacrafice of very weak mobility.
Pros Cons
  • Better setplay and oki game than other moons. especially in the corner, f-warc has a variety of consistent set ups that enable her a strong start to their offense.
  • Good neutral and zoning capabilities, as per all versions of the character. Most notably, warc has her excellent 214x 'ring' series
  • Low execution, high reward: F-warc has both the lowest execution barrier, and the most consistently high damage out of all versions of the character, making them fairly easy to learn, and fairly rewarding as well.
  • Weak mobility; F-warc has the worst mobility of all moons, both in the air and ground. in a movement heavy game like Melty Blood, this can easily enable some really frustrating scenarios
  • Mediocre pressure despite f-moon mechanics - F-warc is often forced to create more gaps or spend meter in order to try and keep her turn going. Her sluggy run doesn't help in this aspect either.
  • Momentum heavy playstyle, thanks to their lower then average HP, lack of meterless reversals and stubby A normals, as well as being meter hungry. Once they get on the back foot, they can be really challenging to comeback. (once again, the aformentioned mobility makes this even worse)

General Gameplan

General thoughts and advice only. Not the end all be all guide to playing this character.

Red Arc's Full Moon version offers more simplicity and superior oki compared to Crescent and Half Moon. The trade-off is that she has less neutral tools, weaker pressure, and she loses C/H's godlike j.B. She can charge meter to force the opponent to approach. Shield is her best reversal, but 214C is okay as well. 63214C is NOT a reversal. However, it is very fast. It has 2 frames of start up prior to the super flash.

She has a harder matchup against any C-Moon character. Heat and EX Shield destroy her safe jump oki set-ups. She has a hard match up against any character that has long range, diagonally upward projectiles (F-Kohaku, C-Mech, F-Ciel, etc.), as these characters can stop Warc from using her j.214X projectiles, which are her main zoning tools.

No air dodge due to Full Moon, meaning no side correcting multiple times per jump, so she tends to use air dash j.2C to move across the screen, resulting in more opponents being more likely to try and dash under her when compared to C and H-Moon.

Neutral

Despite having less neutral tools than C and H, F-Moon still has a damn good neutral game. She can play lame; throwing out A and B air rings. She can force the opponent to try and maneuver around the rings with IADs. dj. A version ground ring can trade with attacks out of IAD, and 236A can beat or trade with attacks out of dj. For opponents that are above her, while she is on the ground, dash under and 5A is a good way to guard break. Dash under 2B is slower and harder to time, but can low profile aerials that are very active and disjointed below.

Remember that F-Warc does not have to approach the opponent unless she wants to. She can play super lame, and try to force opponents to fight through rings. Exceptions being chars with faster zoning that covers the B air ring angle.

Pressure

(sources - TexasTim videos) F-warc's pressure is weird - it has a lot of options that lose to different defensive options, with far fewer to beat them, but her big damage can make it easier to force respect. The foundation of your offense is a blockstring that looks like this:

2a(aa) 5b 2b 2c

with gaps available after 2a, 2b and 2c. 214a can end pressure but at further ranges it may be shielded.

How to use 236a: the great advantage on block may first seem as if this move is really powerful in pressure. While it is defnitely useful, there are a few limitations to this move you have to be aware off; - unless done point blank, 236a can only be followed up gapless with 236b.

- will often leave gaps when cancelled into from a & b normals.

- it does not have enough range to beat backdashes midscreen


With this in mind, you want to:

- Ideally use this move in the corner, where reset options post-236a are more reliable and it can't be backdashed

- Pay attention to their habits post and pre-236a, and bait them accordingly - 2b and throw to beat 5d, 5b and 2b to beat mashing and jumping, iabd 214a can beat reversals Alternatively, you can learn some useful option selects - such as 5b 2c~(1) 6e as a throw/dp bait OS, which loses to mashing - watch TexasTim's videos for more details.

- if you do get shielded, 236a's ex cancels can prove useful; you can buffer 63214c (vs. c-moon) or 623c (vs. h and f moons) on reaction to beat most of their options post-shield

- avoid using this midscreen unless you have conditioned them strongly to respect.

63214c is your default pressure reset of choice - it can potentially crossup, so depending on spacing you can create confusing left/right mixups. if blocked, you're +1 and close to the opponent, so you can potentially get your turn restarted (with risk)

throw is pretty bad - not very damaging and ground techable. while 5b and 236c can be used to cover most techs midscreen (and all in the corner) it makes for a much less reliable mixup tool. you'll need to use this, but don't do so more then nessecary.

Okizeme

One of 3 reasons you're playing F-warc, learning when and how to set up oki is essential to develop one's gameplan.

Air Throw:

j.214c: the most fundamental oki setup, following j.214c is otg 3c, 3c, j8.214a. corner only, but enables you to stack 200~ more damage, and meaty j.214a, which is both very safe and very advantagous. the tip is to do j.214a so its already out by the time you'd descending low to the ground. Note: you need to do j.214c quickly at the end of air combos - delaying could affect the height and as such not give you enough time for the otg.

If you end a combo with j.214c, and the opponent is with their back tight to the corner but you are too far away for a 3c otg, you can super jump forward and and with j.c to get a good safejump scenario.

J.2c: you get no oki out of this. the most damaging meterless ender, but you reset to nearly fullscreen.

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.

Corner Throw Options

When you throw the opponent in the corner you want to do one of 2 things.

1 - Tech Punish

  • F-Warc 2B will cover all tech options in the corner. If the opponent does not tech, 2B will hit OTG and you will have another opportunity to tech punish.
2B 2C
If they don't tech, 2B 2C will hit OTG and you can 421A (This Needs Testing). If they did tech, 2B 2C will hit and you can 236A into combo.
  • F-Warc 236C will cover all tech options in the corner and OTG relaunch. If they don't tech, you get a relaunch. If they forward tech, the input is reversed and you get a 214C.

2 - OTG the Opponent
If you call that they don't tech, you can do one of the following:

An easy relaunch confirm for when you are in Max. Requires your jump cancel.

3C OTG Options

  • Note. If 3C is whiffing OTG after a j.214C, it is likely the case that you need to omit sdj. in favor of dj. in your air string. Being able to OTG with 3C requires you to be as low, relative to the opponent, as you can while laning j.214C. Rule of thumb is the sooner F-Warc hits the ground, relative to the opponent, the easier it is to 3C OTG.

???


Meter Gained: ??? Meter Given (vs C-Moon): ???
Double Relaunch combo. Very situational. You must go into Max during your combo just before the j.214C prior to relaunch to have the meter required to do this. Alternatively, you must be near Max at the same point, and gain the additional meter needed (200%) during the 1st relaunch. Requires your jump cancel for the 2nd relaunch with 236C.
  • Note: Remember that in Melty, combos can be extended with things like wall bounce, ground slam, ground bounce, and OTG up to a max of 3 total per valid combo in most cases. So if you use F-Warc 623C(Wall Bounce), j.214C(Ground Slam) or raw airthrow(Ground Bounce) in your combos, you will have less slots for OTG extenders.

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.

Very risky anti-air, as you are telegraphed for 27 frames, however it can be useful if, for example, the opponent gives you a bad air tech and has no movement options left.

Fast, standing palm strick. Active on frame 5 minimum. Good disjointed hit box in front of her that extends past her hand. Will whiff crouchers at mid to max range. Good for counter pokes. Useful in block strings and combos. This move can be partial charged (denoted as 5{C}) with the same move properties, but more start-up. This move has multiplicative proration, so using it in a combo will multiply the current proration % by 90%. For instance, if used at a starter, it will set the proration to 90%; however, if the proration is at 50%, hitting them with 5C will reduce it to 45%. Can be useful to catch jumpouts in the corner after 236b.

Warc spins while clawing the opponent with both arms. Used to end air combos for knockdown (last hit needs to connect). Has one hit of super armor.

Holding up after doing the move will remove knockdown properties and cause the attack to do less damage. This move has some interesting momentum properties and will either speed you up in the air or cause you to stop forward momentum depending on if/how you superjump or airdash. It's a surprisingly good option to throw out from time to time, but don't get carried away as you will get blown up on block. It can be used to punish the startups or whiffs of some moves from across the screen on reaction. It can also be used to call out opponents who are trying to use air-to-air buttons to deal with air ring zoning or corner jumpouts.

  • A series of big blood swipes, that control a lot of space and leave a lot of hitstun in juggles, as well as doing good damage. Can be cancelled into heavier versions of the same move on hit block and whiff.

A version is an upward swipe, which makes it naturally good for controlling airspace, although it's air blockable. Lowers her hurtboxes on startup. Has a short recovery, making it advantageous on block and allows for links - integral in combos and very useful in pressure, albeit risky. Launches the opponent.

EX version is a larger air-unblockable variant of 236A. It has multiple overlapping hits as there is one from Warc herself, and the blood effects are two 5-hit projectiles. Can be jump cancelled on hit so it may be used in combos, but the high proration limits its usability in most scenarios

  • Warc teleports forward at a distance depending of the button pressed. has invul for the majority of the duration, but its both too early to be used as a reversal in pressure, and too late to be hard to punish. somewhat slow duration and limited options make this series of limited use.

Weird move; Advances forward but has a hit, which is a hitgrab. On hit, Warc will wallslam the opponent toward the opposite side. Easy to combo into due to how fast and active it is, but the sideswitching combo slam makes this somewhat hard to use in combos or conversions, especially when 63214c exists. May be useful for punishing shield occassionally, and isn't nessecarily bad to help you build distance from the opponent

  • warc's infamous ring series. Big, active projectiles that have very low recovery, giving them great utility for zoning.

Warc summons a ring that travels at mid-range. Aside from the obvious space control, this move is pretty useful to use as a meaty in the corner, as it can become very advantagous and is very safe at further ranges.

Releases 2 large, multi-hitting rings. Deals big damage and is very advantagous on block, making it seem like a good way to reset pressure. However, the slow startup and warc's slow dash can make it significantly harder to use as such a tool, especially in midscreen. most useful to catch techs after throw along with 236c, and the partial invul may somehow prove of use.

  • Second teleport series, this time going backwards rather then forward. Invincibility startup and distance vary with button, but the frame data is very simillar to 623x. Even more situational then the aforemtioned teleport series.

A: Fakeout, and a slow one at that. Warc teleports and appears in the same spot. The move has some invincibility so it can go through some things (although unreliably).
B: Same distance as 623A, but backwards. Start up is a little longer than A version.

A unique EX move, Warc dashes forward rapidly and does claw attack. Almost excellent, but still a very useful too in Warc's kit Untechable knockdown on hit. Long range, fast startup and partial invul make this a good tool to punish things from long range as well as to escape gaps. Leads to untechable knockdown anywhere on screen, and gives decent oki to work with. Depending on the range it hits, it may or may not crossup the opponent, and although it doesn't pass crossup protection, it may have some utility to switch sides during pressure. It's only real issue is that its only +1 on block, which makes it limited as the pressure reset tool it can be.

A version does not change Warc's air momentum, which makes it very good for oki purposes - throwing a ring while descending low to the ground can be very advantagous and safe. It also works really well for zoning purposes, when you are above the opponent, which can encourage them to chase you.
