Profile

It is well known among the creatures of Foenum that when a goat sets her eye on something, it’s only a matter of time before she gets it.

Shanty, named after a song with no title, was taken in by notorious pirate captain Bravura after being orphaned at a very young age. She studied the ways of salt and sail, instilled with the belief that the only ones who make it in life are those brave enough to fight to the last.

For Shanty to earn a place as a true member of her pirate crew, she has to prove her worth. And it isn’t enough to meet the bar, Shanty aims to blow it out of the water. That means stealing the most valuable treasure in the world: which just so happens to be the Prophet’s Key! Only one who’s worthy? It’s gonna be Shanty![1]

Gameplan

Shanty is highly agile, with a couple of methods for getting behind, under, or over her opponents. Some of her abilities are projectile invulnerable too (4/6C, 236C), allowing her to get through zoning attempts.

Being a stance character, magic stocks are important to have to keep all of her movement and attack options open. Shanty has 6 magic stocks, but they regenerate quite slow, so it is critical to use Parley (22A) when one has the chance.

Movement Options

Jump: Shanty can perform both regular jumps and shorthops.

Forward and Backdash: Shanty can dash both forwards and backwards, like any other character.

Run: Shanty can run forward or backward, but only after entering her run stance (1 magic).

Wall-Cling: Ability unique to Shanty. Activated with 22B or 22C, and requires 2 magic. Press D while in wall-cling to leap to the other side (1 magic), or press any direction away from the wall to jump off.

5A
TFH Shanty 5A.png
Base Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Adv on Hit Adv on Block First Hit Juggle Decay Base Juggle Decay
30 HL 5 8 11 1 -2 0 15

Has the most active frames of any 5A in the game. Your fastest normal, useful for quick punishes or abare.

85 HL 8 6 22 -9 -6 40 55

Universal anti-air. Shanty's has poor vertical range, but good horizontal range and forward movement, making it very useful in rebeat blockstrings.

Base Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Adv on Hit Adv on Block First Hit Juggle Decay Base Juggle Decay
90 HL 9 5 17 1 -2 -30 30

Possible counterpoke that moves forward slightly and is disjointed during the active frames.

175 HL 12 6 21 -2 -6 -55 45

Similar to 5B, moving forward with a notable disjoint during the active frames. Does massive first-hit damage, especially on counterhit.

2A

TFH Shanty 2A.png
Base Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Adv on Hit Adv on Block First Hit Juggle Decay Base Juggle Decay
35 L 6 5 13 1 -1 0 15

Hits further than the animation implies. Does more damage and hits much further than 5A, while also being a low. The tradeoff? Less active frames and slightly longer startup.

2B
2B
TFH Shanty 2B.png
Base Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Adv on Hit Adv on Block First Hit Juggle Decay Base Juggle Decay
85 L 9 9 15 -3 -6 -20 40

Sliding low with extreme low profile during the active frames. Hits further than the animation implies. Hits surprisingly far in neutral, keeps Shanty in during pressure, rebeats into 6A, can anti air, this button does it all!

2C

145 L 12 8 24 HKD +25 -9 -50 50

As with all of Shanty's lows, hits farther than the animation implies. Has massive disjoint during active frames, and can cancel into 5C if 5C has not been used in your chain yet.

Universal launcher. Fast and moves forward quite a bit, but will still fall out at max-range confirms. Useful for many of Shanty's known combos.

Extremely quick air normal with surprising range. Can hit crossup. Not very useful as an overhead on its own, but very useful for fuzzy guard breaks.

A 140 HL 13 7 20 Launch/HKD +37 -5 100 100

Forward-moving and slightly disjointed. This move becomes -2 if the opponent crouch-blocks it. Can lead to a HKD on hit.

B 240 HL 24 6 27 Launch/HKD +45 -11 110 110

Very useful high-damage combo special. Combos easily from 5C, and can combo from 3C if TK'd into. Up close, it will cross through opponents who are crouching.

C 250 HL 34 9 24 Launch/HKD +53 -11 80 80

Projectile invincible move that can cross up opponents if close enough. Does not steal the corner. Massive first-hit damage, but very hard to combo into.

Aye! 125 HL 41 20 4 Launch -7 70 70

Charges 2 magic stocks. This version has the highest damage, most active frames, the least recovery frames, and is the safest on block. Can be done meaty after certain HKDs to be plus on block. Requires 27-38 frames of charging. The shockwave counts as a projectile, and will break other projectiles/lose to projectile-invuln moves.

Yarrr! 110 HL 52 14 20 Stagger 36 -12 90 90

Charges 3 magic stocks. Staggers the opponent if it hits. Requires 39+ frames of charging. The shockwave counts as a projectile, and will break other projectiles/lose to projectile-invuln moves.

300 Throw 8 3 18 Bounce - - -

Uses your groundbounce immediately. Like Paprika's airthrow, followups depend on your height. From a high connect, falling with j.B seems most consistent. If closer to the ground, landing and using 5A or 5B works.

Magic

Shanty's magic slowly builds over time, and she can obtain more with Parley, to a maximum of 6 stocks. She can spend it to enter her Wall Cling and Run stances, and use certain options within the stances.

5D
Run Stance (Enter/Exit)
5D
TFH Shanty 5D.png
Base Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Adv on Hit Adv on Block First Hit Juggle Decay Base Juggle Decay
- - 8 - - - - - -

Enters Run Stance, which has an evasive low profile hurtbox on frame 1, and gives her access to different movement and moves on frame 8 after pressing 5D. Shanty can manually exit the stance by holding down or pressing D again, which, when done as fast as possible, makes the stance last 20f at minimum. Shanty can run forwards and backwards, which drains magic, and she cannot block.

High-damage charging headbutt. Wallsticks if opponent hits the wall. Can cancel into 22C to get a midscreen wallstick. Has many active frames and decent disjoint both horizontally and vertically, meaning you can space it to be safe and possibly use it as a panic anti-air if you're in stance.

- - 11 17-22 1 - - - -

Grounded startup is 11f, airborne travel time varies between 17 and 22f. Enters Wallcling by spending 1 magic and jumping to the wall. 22B jumps to the wall behind her, 22C jumps to the one in front of her. If midscreen, a wall is created at the camera's bounds. Can run up and down the wall and gives access to a different set of moves. Can act on the 2nd frame after reaching the wall. 15 frames of recovery if you walk to the floor. Magic drains continuously on the wall, Shanty automatically enters Helm if magic runs out. Cannot block in Wallcling.

Pressing C while in wallcling will cause Shanty to enter "Helm".
