Profile

Velvet enjoys premiere status as a member of Reine City‘s ruling elite, the peak of modern civilization at the center of the world, high in the frozen north. She is the daughter of Jarl Stronghoof Hoofstrong, whose family line has been passed down his family line for generations.

No deer in Reine is Velvet’s equal in the practice of Winter Magic, in form nor in function. She is perfection personified, supremacy symbolized. Those who dare challenge her will be left with nothing but a cold shoulder.

A grand tournament was held in Reine City to determine who was most fit to answer the Council’s call and become Foenum’s Champion. Velvet trounced all opposition without so much as breaking a sweat. Haven’t heard the news? Well, you’re forgiven for now. Can’t rightly blame someone for living under a rock. You’ll see… soon enough. [1]

Gameplan

Velvet's toolset allows for a more defensive, zoning playstyle. She has a good backdash, effective reversal, strong anti-airs, and oppressive projectiles, as well as a variety of specials to help lock the opponent down. However, her close-range options aren't the best, with few low attacks and poor framedata on her normals. While she can use various tools to pressure the opponent offensively, her offense is more based on traditional frametraps and throws rather than other mixups. Otherwise, her zoning is the most potent in the game.

Movement Options

Jump: Velvet, like any other character, can jump. However, she has no super or shorthop variations.

Forward and Backdash: Velvet can do quick dashes forward and backward, but cannot run and walks fairly slow. Her backdash is the quickest in the game.

Slide: An ability unique to Velvet, Velvet can slide forward and backward if she crouches immediately after dashing, allowing her to approach/retreat while blocking low.

Velvet swipes out with her hoof once. Her fastest attack, good for quick challenges or punishes. Only has one active frame, so it's not great as a meaty or neutral tool.

Velvet pokes the enemy with an icicle. Not a low. Has a decent amount of active frames, as well as a disjoint, making it a better poke/meaty than 5A despite doing less damage.

160 Mid 13 6 25 0 -14 -45 55

Velvet spins around and bucks the opponent with her back hooves. Has a very short hurtbox for the first 23 frames, making it good as a poke/anti air. Does more damage than 5C and hits crouchers at range, making it a more reliable punish. Can cancel into 5C if 5C was not used in the chain yet.

Velvet forms a beautiful, gorgeous sculpture of herself providing a totally-accurate-and-not-exaggerated-at-all representation of her strength to launch her opponents upward. Jump cancels on hit, horribly unsafe on block.

Velvet spews out a cone of frost from her mouth, knocking opponents backward. Moves Velvet backwards, changing her jump arc. This move also induces a wall-bounce on midair opponents. You can only use one wall-bounce per combo. On grounded opponents, causes a ton of hitstun. Can cancel into icicle summon on whiff.

A 100 Mid 50 - 27 38 29 60 60

Velvet forms an icicle and fires it at the opponent. It takes a while to fire, and if Velvet is hit, the projectile is dismantled. Tends to whiff on crouching opponents midscreen and closer.

B 130 Mid 76 - 27 39 31 60 60

Same as before but with a longer delay and slightly more damage.

C 170 Mid 106 - 27 41 34 60 60

Same as before but with a long delay and even more damage.

j. 130 Mid 96 - 20 41 31 60 60

Air icicle. Each version does the same damage and has the same delay. Instead, the icicle's angle is determined by button strength. A goes downwards, B has the same angle as a grounded icicle, and C goes perfectly straight. An air icicle can be active at the same time as a ground icicle, allowing Velvet to summon two icicles at a time.

"Now, despite what she may say, Velvet is perfectly willing to touch you with a 10 foot pole." ~Oleander, on Velvet's Shatter A move

Shoots a path of frost forward that hits low, and one of Velvet's only low attacks. Very disjointed, unsafe on block unless cancelled into magic attacks. Is considered a projectile.

B 250 Mid 13 7 32 38 (with HKD) -17 65 65

Summons ice spikes ontop of Velvet that hit enemies. Can't be cancelled into magic on block. Has a low hurtbox, but not really a good anti-air. Generally used as a combo ender.

C 220 High 30 7 37 Bounce -20 150 150

An overhead that summons a massive icicle to crush the opponent. Slow overhead, but still effective, because players tend to try and crouch under icicles, 5C, and block low eruptions. Can be made safe if spaced or covered with an icicle. Also works as a combo extender, using a groundbounce.

Velvet summons a patch of ice spikes beneath her opponent, dealing damage. Different versions summon at different distances, but they are always bounded by the side of the arena if they would otherwise exceed it. The light version of this attack does a short distance infront of her. One of Velvet's only low attacks. Is + on block.

B 200 Low 24 2 15 Launch 2 40 ground / 55 air 40 ground / 55 air

The medium version of this attack summons spikes at a medium distance infront of her.

Velvet fortifies her cyclone, creating stronger, chilling winds that freeze her opponent (if hit), slowing them and their attacks down for a few seconds afterward. This move also instantly restores 3 stacks of magic when cast, and unlike other characters, can be cast regardless of if her Level 1 hits or not.

Combos

General BnB

If you want a generally applicable route that works in most scenarios regardless of starter, consider this route:

  • (Starter) 623A > 5C > 3C > Jump Cancel > j.A > j.B > 6A > 214C > Dash Forward > 6A > 5C > 214B

The above route and alternate versions of it can be seen here. This route works without consideration of the Juggle Decay system, and thus you'll miss out on the benefits of playing around the JD system in the long run. This combo is fine if you're starting out and don't want to go too in-depth on combo optimization and JD.

If you keep getting 214A after 6A when trying to 214C, try holding the A button until after doing 214C to avoid negative edge misinputs.
