Introduction

Heads were rollin', especially her namesake's.

Charlotte is doing well for herself in this game. Having inherited most of the moves from both her slash and bust forms from samsho4, she has a very solid bag of tools to work with and is consistently rated in the higher tiers, typically just below top tier if not in it. She might not be the most mobile character, but with her abilities you won't really need it in most matchups. Invariably, she has good options as long as time is on her side. It's hard but if I had to name one overarching flaw, it would be either her lack of a dominating heavy, or the fact that so many of her important moves are deflectable.

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Very versatile. Has a tool for most occasions.
  • A simple character to learn and play.
  • Has a solid move set, that works especially well at mid to long range. Even when unarmed, her options are better than you'd expect.
  • Not as effective in close range as she is in mid and long.
  • Prone to being weapon deflected/caught.
  • Generally rigid and limited punish options.

Charlotte's big crossup that everyone should know about. This slash was built to attack opponents below you, and incidentally has a great shape to give haircuts. Combined with Charlotte's low, quick jumps, this makes it an air-to-land combat system with only limited use against those still trying to jump. But you already know she will stop jumping the second you start to.

Of particular note is that this attack is NOT counted as a heavy, but rather a medium. This means your deep hits and backhits won't go as far as they would with other jumping ABs, which is fine because you'll be connecting a lot of backhits anyways.

Dashing overhead. Bears a great resemblance to the 5BC, but with fewer comboabilities. Regardless, it is another powerful tool especially since it keeps them on the floor. Deflects will treat this as a heavy, so you will lose your weapon if they catch you mindlessly throwing it out.

Charlotte's makeshift ranged punish. Hits twice (if close enough) in quick succession and may also chain into 2BC, but it doesn't pack that much of a punch. As a punish it doesn't really do its job damagewise, but a lot of times it's the best she can do to salvage many of the harder punishes.

Charlotte's DP is an anti-air, and deals more damage against jumping opponents than grounded ones, although it's purely vertical in motion with a semi-wide hitbox. Its uses are anti-air, anti-air after a taunt cancel, and combo punishes.

It comes out with no delay, but it is readily punishable-- The A version if blocked or whiffed while they're standing; and the AB version always gets punished unless it actually connects. The A version alone has satisfying enough damage, especially for anti-air hits, and is by far the most used-- most as a standby for when 5AB is too slow. This is not spammable at all.

Charlotte will charge forward raining strikes on the enemy. The B and AB versions start off with a momentary pace backward before the charge, but still travel further. This move might be decisive or your own downfall. The three versions of this have varying punishability on block, largely depending on circumstantial factors, but the B and AB versions are usually a lot less safe (though the A version might be just as bad).

This attack has two uses. The first is to do chip damage, and that can only work if they block and don't jump-- all versions of the move telegraph, so this is challenging. The second use is possibly go over a ground-traveling fireball to get in some free damage, but most characters with those can simply AB you if they block this for a free punish.

The main counter to Splash Fount is to jump forward, although at a distance, most characters usually can't hurt you just from that. It will indeed hit people in the air, but only for minute damage, thereafter giving either a knockdown and reset, or a block and punish.

No matter what don't let them read this move, or you will be in a world of pain. Ultimately this attack is a threat to put pressure on foes when they can't survive the chip, making them more jumpy. Be aware this telegraphs and is deflectable.

A large, high-startup projectile that can be subsequently held for a controlled, but not unlimited amount of time. The type of slash used will determine how fast/far the triangle goes once you release it, since it seems to travel for a fixed period of time or until blocked.

These triangles are a nice mini-game that Charlotte has. When released at the right moment, you can thwart jumping, dashing and rolling, but this is mainly just a zoning game and it can't begin at anything less than long range. Once she's far enough to charge her triangles, the use of them is normally pretty safe. If you detect impatience, trislashing might get some risk-free damage, especially since you can chain 8BC when they are knocked out of a jump-- only floaty jumpers have an easy time getting over triangles. The time not to use this is when you need actual pressure.

This is a very wide attack with nice damage (same amount for all versions). 214+AB in particular reaches nearly all the way across the screen, though that version's usefulness is severely limited by the startup. It may seem like a super-poke, but there is a bit more to this move than her other normals.

Keep in mind that all your rolls and recoils can be cancelled into a 214+A to some effect. Not only will a backroll cancel into this be safe much of the time, it will give yet more of a hard time to jumping players. This is undoubtedly one of Charlotte's best attacks. Even without the cancels, this attack (the A version) is just good, to the point where it may work to throw it out in sequence or with very little regard to sportsmanship.

Be very aware of projectiles when using this, as you will get hit if you try to lance them. Jubei and Zankuro can also use their catch counters and punish you on reaction if you don't pick your attacks well.

Despite the name, this is simply another slide kick. The difference here is that after connecting, the target is thrown toward the other side of the screen and takes about twice as much damage. Why is this useful? Mainly because you can roll cancel into it and cover some respectable distances. It also becomes one of Charlotte's main damage sources if she is disarmed, and can feasibly mix up when she's in range for an overhead. It's not something that should be done excessively though as Lion Lance is pretty easy to avoid.

This super is slightly above average. Its hitbox is sizable and can sometimes catch them in the air, and it thankfully catches on hit so it cannot be exploded out of. The recovery on block and whiff is naturally long, so expect to get punished if it doesn't connect. It's best just to wait for a chance to chain close B into it.

One thing that isn't noted in the frame data is that the entire animation, even on whiff, is projectile invincible. Show those Genjuro players eager to nail you with a card bounce what's for.
