Shannon

Story

One of the two servants present at Rokkenjima at the time of the serial killings, the other being her "younger brother" Kanon. Due to her constant breaking of mirrors she has 1000 years of bad luck.

Introduction

Health = 1550

Shannon is a rather unorthodox zoning character in two aspects particularly.

For one, her zoning excels especially well at mid screen, as opposed to other zoners in game having oppressive zoning even fullscreen. Her shields act as both dash checks and tools to keep opponent stationary since they move forward and last 3 seconds. Three versions of shields can be in screen at the same time, and good Shannon player can pace these well to keep opponent on toes and keeping them away. Should opponent attempt jumping, Shannon can deal with this well with her great anti-airs like 6c, 3c and 22b, latter giving her great oki.

Secondly, while Shannon is "classified" as defensive character, her pressure, strings and corner oki are surprisingly decent for a character listed as so. When Shannon corners opponent, her normals and tools start to shine well. Her seagull is a versatile tool to keep opponent from getting close, and as part of knockdown pressure and string enders to keep them blocking. This gives Shannon a chance to go for her mixups. Shannon has decent amount of tools for this with her overhead, jumping normals(which can crossup) throws and 623x, which all lead to a knockdown where Shannon can keep the train going.

However, Shannon unfortunately has a lot of problems.

Like previously mentioned, Shannon's zoning is good around mid screen, but not anywhere else. Because of this, zoners like 410, Bernkastel and Virgilia can bully her full screen since Shannon's movement is quite poor. Some of Shannon's tools, like her normals and 623x, become quite poor too outside of corner. Her normals have bad reach, and her poke is quite slow. 623x sends opponent flying too far away for Shannon to get oki, which highlights Shannon's general lack of oki outside of corner. Shannon's normals, specials and throw have quite a lot of recovery frames, making them easy to punish. Should Shannon do one mistake, she can get punished quite easily.

Shannon's damage lacks in midscreen, and in corner it requires high execution and meta to do a lot damage(metaloop is a 1f link)

In short, Shannon can have difficulties getting into position to take advantage of her good stuff. Because of this, Shannon is often put into lower tiers on lists, sometimes even to bottom. However, due to OMKs nature, she's not unplayable, and should player find good partner to compensate her weaknesses, Shannon can definitely do work.

Ability

Auto-Guard - You will automatically guard for 15 seconds. This allows you to autoblock in the middle of dashes.

This ability is ok for Shannon, since it can make dealing against full screen zoning easier. However, Shannon doesn't need this on other matchups since she doesn't have need to dash a lot at other matchups. In general, it's a good ability for slower characters like Dlanor, Ronove and Virgilia, but these three don't go well with Shannon in term of team building.

Gameplan

Team Building

  • Jessica - Both struggle in neutral, and have poor pokes. It can kinda work with Jessica's natural explosive damage, but have zero synergy.
  • Ange - Stun can be OK to setup easier oki scenarios for Shannon, and autoblock can help Ange's middling ground game, but other than that they dont compliment other big flaws they've, like neutral.
  • Battler - Battler's natural versatility makes him a great partner for Shannon. Battler's amazing neutral helps with tagging Shannon, and Battler's ability compliments Shannon's tankiness and more zoning gameplay. Only issue with team is if Shannon cannot do metaloops, it can lack a little in damage department.
  • Beatrice - Another naturally versatile character, thus good for Shannon. It's for a different reason, however, since Beatrice's ability gives more damage and knockdown possibilities easier. Not as good synergy as Battler, but definitely good enough to have on consideration when thinking about partners for Shannon.
  • Rosa - Both being zoners characters with good oki, Rosa offers an interesting synergy for Shannon, since the fear of Detachment makes people more wary of seagulls and shields. This gives Shannon easier time to approach, and overall makes her mixups even more steamrolling.
  • Virgilia - Not much good synergy, since both have quite awkward movement and Lia has no use for Shannon's ability as a zoner.
  • Willard - Hands down the best partner for Shannon. Coupled with Will's already great versatility, damage and corner carry, his ability makes metalooping much easier, ensuring Shannon a guaranteed stuns to setup.
  • Kanon - OK partner for Shannon; Kanon's ability gives meter advantage from Shannon's zoning, and Kanon's rushdown gives Shannon easier time for tag into corner pressure
  • Lucifer - More potential damage thanks to Luci's ability, and Shannon's ability can be nice for Luci easier time to start pressure due to her fast dash speed. Other than that, not much overall synergy.
  • Black Battler - Because B.Battler lacks regular Battler's ability, there isn't much of a synergy outside of Battler's good neutral buttons.
  • Eva - Eva's ability can be ok to add some damage for Shannon's meddling mid-screen combos, but otherwise not much synergy.
  • Chiester 410 - They don't offer much with their different zoning styles, and their normal buttons aren't the best.
  • Ronove - Ronove offers an interesting turtle synergy. Shannon's ability is great for Ronove who has harder time to get in neutral, and makes guard kicks much easier. Problem with team is that you need to run Shannon on-point, which is not ideal for Shannon.
  • LambdaDelta - No particular synergy.
  • George - Shannon's ability helps George's poor ground neutral, but not much else.
  • Erika - No particular synergy, lacks in midscreen damage heavily.
  • Dlanor - Shannon's ability helps with Dlanor's poor movement, but nothing else
  • Bernkastel - No particular synergy, other than Bernkastel being a great character on her own.
