Species: Longma

Movement Options: Superjump, Air Dash, Flight, Flip
Voice Actor: Kay Bess
Stage(s): Huoshan, Spring Festival

Profile

Longma of the Huoshan Empire are few in number but carry extraordinary heritage: half-dragon, half-horse. They believe they embody the best traits of both: peaceful minds and hardy bodies from the ungulates, iron wills and the strength to fight from the predators.

The road to perfect balance is often described as more of a tightrope. Sway too far in one direction or the other, and you could send yourself tumbling. Tianhuo’s ruthless ambition to purge herself of all weakness had manifested as cruelty to others in the past, but in the years since she has self-reformed. Now she serves as Captain of the Guard in service to Her Royal Highness the Longestma, Empress of Huoshan.

Tianhuo was the natural choice for Champion: with her unmatched physical prowess, skill with flight, and command over dragon fire. She believes she’s the only one powerful and worthy enough to save Foenum, but will pure-blooded ungulates truly accept a half-predator? [1]

Gameplay

Tianhuo is best described as an aerial-rushdown character. She has the most airborne mobility in the game, along with a slew of great air options that let her put on pressure. To compliment her aerial game, she has a great set of ground normals, and the ability to cancel these normals into flight to continue pressure. She also has good defensive tools in her anti-airs, her strike-invincible 7D, and her various frame-one-airborne specials. Good normals, good offense, good defense, and the best mobility in the game. The downside? The lowest health and damage in the game.


Strengths Weaknesses
  • Mobility: Her low-profile dash, airdash, super jump, flight, flips and firecrackers let Tianhuo have incredible mobility, allowing her to easily position herself favorably and approach quickly in neutral.
  • Excellent Mixups: Tian's flips, Volcanic Dash, access to 3 different low normals, a strong Level 1 Super HKD, and flight give her an incredibly strong and safe offensive game.
  • Corner Carry: Tian has the impressive ability to take the opponent to the corner off of most hits, complimenting her strong corner offense.
  • 7D: A powerful reversal option that doubles as a movement option, 7D is a powerful threat that requires specific counterplay both on the ground and in the air. If unchecked, Tian will often immediately start her turn or completely disengage from the opponent's offensive pressure.
  • Ran Shao Feng: Tianhuo's Level 2 buffs her damage and mixup potential to extreme levels, which can allow her to three-touch the opponent under favorable circumstances. In addition, access to RSF is plentiful relative to other installs due to Tianhuo's high meter gain.
  • Low Health: Tied with Shanty and Pom for the lowest health in the game, letting her die to fewer touches.
  • Low Damage: In her normal state, Tianhuo has some of the least damaging normals in the game, which combined with her low health, can require her to win more interactions than her opponent to secure victory.
  • Poor Anti-Air: Tian's 6A is pretty slow, making it difficult to use on reaction to jumps.
  • Exploitable Grounded Strings: Tian's 6A whiffs on crouchers, making it hard for her to represent longer grounded strings. Additionally, PB can cause her to whiff very committal normals like 2C, resulting in massive punishes.

Movement

Walk: Tianhuo is slow on the ground, only moving forward at 5 hu/frame and backward at 4 hu/frame.

Dashes: Like other characters, Tianhuo can dash forward and backwards while grounded. Tianhuo also has the unique ability of having a low hurtbox during her forward dash, letting her slip under most projectiles.

Airdash: Tianhuo is one of two characters who can airdash, with her airdash travelling a very large distance, but being unable to block during its duration.

Super Jump: In addition to a regular jump, Tianhuo can perform a super jump for extra height and more horizontal distance than any other super jump in the game.

Fly: By pressing 5D Tianhuo can fly, letting her move in any direction, but being unable to block. Tianhuo will exit fly after a certain period of time, but you can press 5D to exit sooner.

Can be chained into itself or 2A on hit or whiff. Your fastest normal, and therefore a good pick for challenging pressure/fast punishes. Whiffs on crouchers when not done from point blank, so it's not ideal for stagger pressure.

Tianhuo's fastest low. It's good for starting pressure up close. Has very solid horizontal reach for a 2A, similarly to Oleander's or Paprika's - it can often still reach to hit an opponent even after having an air normal pushblocked away. Unusually minus on block, so it can take a bit more conditioning than average to use it for stagger pressure like most other 2As.

120 Low - 13 16 29 vs. Grounded 11 Until Knockdown SKD 11 20 -24 -55 45 0.95
vs. Airborne 24 -20

Low slide that causes a soft knockdown on the opponent on hit. Unsafe on block, and the only safe cancelling option on block is flight (if resourceless) or one of her flips (1D, 4D or 7D, each one costing one stock of magic). However, if it hits, you cannot follow up after flight cancelling. If you get pushblocked before using this move, your opponent gets a free whiff punish. Overall this isn't really a good normal to be throwing out, due to its difficulty to confirm from and overall unsafeness. Works well in combos, at least.

Highest damage jump normal, making it ideal for combo starters.

It also has many active frames, making it difficult to backdash away from.

Tianhuo has one of the slowest 6As in the game, but it's best to not ignore it. It still has frame 1 crouching hurtboxes and the most vertical reach of all your anti-air normals and can be used to trap opponents in blockstun to 236C them afterwards. Because this move whiffs on crouchers, Tian does not have access to rebeating during pressure.

Standard combo ender, and Tian's only hard knockdown aside from Super, granted that the opponent ends with less than 380 JD after applying this move's own JD. Otherwise, causes a soft knockdown. Can't be blocked in the air, providing a real threat against jumping opponents. You can blockstring into it as an anti air, and it'll grab them even if they pushblock, if timed well. Refunds 70 JD and gains first hit bonus if landed raw. When this move connects, Tianhuo gains a considerable amount of extra meter, making it also the best ender for meter-building routes.

Magic


Tianhuo can use magic for a variety of specials. She has a maximum of 2 stacks of magic, which regenerates over time. However, performing an airdash or using any magic move (including flight) will pause magic regeneration for a brief amount of time. Firecracker attacks will regain some magic on hit. Each magic stock takes about 5 seconds to generate.

Moves downwards and forwards, effectively a divekick. Has a disjointed hitbox forwards and slightly above Tianhuo's hurtbox, making it a good move to challenge anti-airs and air-to-airs. The firstJD bonus makes it one of Tianhuo's best starters, but it is also really useful mid combos, as it has a good damage while adding up only 5 JD. If used from the ground, Tianhuo initially moves upwards, but this does not affect the move's startup.

7D - - Strike-Invulnerable (1-10) 0 10 28+ vs. Grounded
vs. Airborne

The active frames do not actually refer to a hitbox, but instead refer to the frames in which this move is strike invuln. Strike immune reversal that moves Tianhuo upwards and backwards very quickly. Recovery can be cancelled into normals, specials, or airdashes.

4D - - Strike-Invulnerable (5-9) 4 5 27+ vs. Grounded
vs. Airborne

Similar to 7D, but this one does not have strike immunity on the first frames, and instead moves Tianhuo forward. Her speed accelerates as she travels, so using it while grounded will not get you very far, while using it in midair lets you quickly close the distance. Recovery can be cancelled into normals, specials, or airdashes.

Using a j.A immediately after this results in a basically unreactable 16f overhead, or a sligtly slower (19f) but stronger starter with j.B, so remember that this is one of your strongest mixup options.

1D - - Strike-Invulnerable (5-9) 4 5 39+ vs. Grounded
vs. Airborne

Once again, active frames are strike-immune frames, not hitboxes. This one is more of a "rainbow" trajectory, allowing for surprise crossups mid-pressure. More committal than her other flips, and not used nearly as often.

You can airdash into j.A or j.B to stay on the same side, like similar to 4D's overheads. However, depending on spacing and the timing of the airdash, Tian can land faster. This can enable safejumps to bait out reversals OR ambiguous cross-ups. Versatile and keeps opponents guessing when alternating with her other flips.

Once again, active frames are not a hitbox. Instead, active frames are how long you can fly. Flight allows you to move freely in all directions, in midair, for a set amount of time. Using any attack/mobility option will end flight, and you cannot block while flying. Can be cancelled into from pretty much any normal or special, most of the time on hit OR block, opening up pressure/combo options.

vs. Airborne

This is the big one. Ran Shao Feng is a one-hit followup move that does several things. One, it extends your combo and puts you into flight (no matter whether you already used flight in that combo.) Two, it puts Tianhuo into an install state for about 20 seconds. Tianhuo's install does the following things: 1. Changes the properties of Flight, 236/B/C, and j.A. 2. Reduces the meter she gains. 3. Instantly fills your magic, and removes the restrictions on magic gain that Tianhuo usually faces when airdashing/flying. These changes turn Tian into a neutral and mixup monster, and increase her damage. Depending on how you use it, it can either be just a big combo extender for damage, or you can abuse its buffs for resets/knockdowns/pressure. You've got 22 seconds.

Third hit is an overhead. Not so much use as an overhead anymore, but now the first hit can hit grounded (and even crouching) opponents, and so it can be used as a counterpoke. It does a massive amount of chip on block. Can be spaced to be only -5.

Probably the most slept on change that Ran Shao Feng brings. j.A's hitbox returns to its former glory, and is still an overhead, giving Tian a legitimate instant overhead option. It's a bit hard to confirm from, it does low damage, and it adds a lot of JD on first hit, but it's still a very threatening option, especially during a last-hit scenario. Its hitbox is just overall better for keeping up pressure, even without the instant-overhead abuse.

Flight now lasts 126 frames, allows faster movement, does not stop after an airdash/normal, and allows INFINITE airdashes while active. This allows several airdash cancels during combos, and incredibly nutty movement in neutral/mixup scenarios. You still can't block during it, though.

vs. Airborne

Spend 3 bars to quickly dive to the ground before performing a fully invincible uppercut that starts a cinematic on hit. Startup is not dependent on height. Whiffs versus grounded opponents. Vulnerable from the moment she starts spinning and will still be in recovery until long after landing. Extremely unsafe both on whiff and block. This move is affected by damage scaling, so it's better to use it early in a combo, but it does suffer significantly less from scaling than most other Level 3s.

vs. Airborne

In exchange for 1/2 a bar of super meter, cross-canter interrupts your blockstun with a strike-invulnerable counterattack. Leads to a hard knockdown on hit with no frame advantage, resetting both opponents to neutral at a medium distance apart. The user will also be locked out of gaining super meter for 5 seconds, stacking up to 10 seconds if cross-canter is used repeatedly.

This can be a strong option to escape pressure, but don't overdo it - it can be thrown during startup and is extremely punishable on block or whiff.
