Story

Vatista is an Autonomic Nerve--a non-sentient biological weapon in the form of a young girl.

She awakened upon detection of anomalies within the Hollow Night and successfully eradicated Paradox, as instructed by her commander.
With peace restored, Vatista was about to return to slumber.
But then a new threat revealed itself: Kuon the Aeon, who threatened great tragedy to the world of humankind if left unchecked.

However, Vatista never received orders to act. And so, she sets out to do battle to save the world once again--this time of her own volition.

Perhaps this is the first time I have chosen my own path.
Perhaps it will be the last time as well...

Gameplay

Vatista is an incredibly versatile and uniquely powerful charge character who excels in controlling the pace of neutral with projectiles like Mico Ruseo and Lumen Stella, in order to leverage her approach and begin utilising Si Deus Fragmentum 'Gems' and Trans Volans in up close pressure for scary throw and high/low mixups. On defense, her signature Ruber Angelus 'Flashkick' is a powerful reversal and anti-air. She is a technically demanding character to pilot, but with good control over her toolset comes the adaptability to switch between wide ranges of proactive offense and reactive defense, leaving no two Vatista players playing exactly alike.

Despite her strengths, Vatista is not without her weaknesses. She crucially lacks the mobility that comes with a run, as well as the consistency of being able to constantly access specials or a reliable anti air, and her defensive option selects are generally risky and high-commitment. Without Si Deus Fragmentum sets or Vorpal, her frame trap game with specials is mostly reliant on B Lumen Stella, and misuse of her tools can very quickly lead to forfeiting Vorpal and allowing the opponent to snowball, making knowing how to structure, mix up and adapt your gameplan on the fly even more important.


Playstyle
Vatista is a versatile charge character. She uses her zoning capabilities to establish respect in neutral, before using that space to approach and utilise her Gems to open up her opponents with strike/throw and overhead mixups.
Strengths Weaknesses
  • Neutral Control: Mico Ruseo and Lumen Stella projectiles coupled with large buttons like 5C and 2FF and her Ruber Angelus Flashkick allow Vatista to dictate the pace of neutral in many matchups.
  • Oppressive Pressure: Gems allow for reversal-safe okizeme from any starter, alongside tricky pressure that becomes even scarier when mixed with partitioning B Drills for high/low mixups.
  • Snowball Potential: Once Vatista gets a knockdown with the opponent in the corner, her pressure and mixup options can quickly become overwhelming.
  • Defense: Vatista is blessed with a large 5A excellent for abare, and her Ruber Angelus Flashkicks are powerful both as reversals and defensive anti-airs.
  • Adorable voicelines.
  • Anti-Air: Whilst her abare and invincible reversal are excellent, Vatista has relatively slow normals with large hurtboxes that don't make for great anti-airs or option selects. Without charge, she has no access to a dedicated anti-air, and must often commit in advance to stopping air approaches in neutral.
  • Mobility: Limited horizontal mobility thanks to having a stepdash instead of a run, Vatista is reliant on Assault jC and Lumen Stella to approach, with few ways to quickly advance or disengage over longer distances.
  • Eats a lot and sleeps too much.
Unique Mechanics: Is a Charge Character

Vatista is the only dedicated charge character in UNI2. Vatista's special moves are exclusively made up of charge inputs, which may be familiar to players of other fighting games.

Instead of performing motion inputs, Vatista needs to hold a cardinal direction for a certain number of frames before performing the motion and pressing the button, failing to meet the charge requirement will cause the special move to not be performed and the normal will come out instead.

  • Vatista's special moves each have different charge timings, in which they are:
    • [4]6A/B/C requires 53 frames;
    • [2]8A requires 38 frames. [2]8B/C require 53 frames;
    • [6]4A/B/C requires 53 frames;
    • [8]2A/B/C requires 43 frames;
    • [A]/[B]/[C] 'Gems' require 61 frames.
  • Vatista can charge at any time, including during hitstun, blockstun, superflash, Chain Shift, during other moves, or even before the round starts.
    • Charge inputs can be gained with any combination of horizontal and vertical directions, depending on what the move requires. Charging is done independently, so Vatista can charge both [4] and [2] at the same time by holding 1.
    • You can also switch between backwards/downwards directions at will and maintain charge. For example: Vatista can swap from [4] to [1] to block a low, and maintain her charge for [4]6A/B/C.
    • The final direction of [2]8 and [8]2 can be any input on the opposite end of the from the original direction, therefore [2]9A, [1]9A and [8]3A, [7]1A are all examples of valid inputs for performing Vatista's [2]8A and [8]2A.
    • The final direction on [4]6 or [6]4 however is strict, so for example [1]3A, [4]3A and [1]9A are all invalid inputs for performing Vatista's [4]6A; only [1]6A or [4]6A counts.
  • After releasing a charge direction, you have 11F to perform the next input, meaning you can walk forward slightly or even perform a microdash before performing the move.
  • What is defined as forwards and backwards is only checked when a button is pressed, therefore if you were holding [6] before swapping sides (For example, to run underneath them), that will count as charging [4] after the side switch.
    • The final direction is also relative to the initial charge input, so for the example above, after crossing up doing [4]6 will still counts as a [4]6 fireball on the other side, despite that the input should be reversed in normal circumstances.
  • Vatista can also do Charge Partitioning: this means that you can begin a charge, release it before it has completed, do an action such as dash, then return to the charging direction quickly and finish the charge without starting over. The grace period is the same as releasing a charge: 11F after the charge is released.
    • You cannot Charge Partition Negative Edge 'Gems' ([A]/[B]/[C]).

  • Staple combo ender that gives a hard knockdown from essentially any starter and route.
  • Has a natural gap between each hit.
  • Very high commitment button in neutral.
  • Landing the first hit on block but whiffing the return hit puts you at an even worse frame advantage.
  • If the first hit connects, the second hit can be cancelled at any time into a special, including flashkick in response to a superflash.

Vatista does a small hop, hurling four Crimson Wings spinning ahead of her across the ground in a wheel.
  • One of Vatista's best normals for pressure - can rebeat into 2A to be 0 on block, safely cancel into Gems, or into Lumen Stella up close to reset pressure.
  • Can be confirmed at further ranges without Counterhit by doing 2C > 2Aw > dash 2A/2B to pickup.
  • The wheel takes some time to travel, increasing the startup at further ranges.
  • Extremely bad on whiff thanks to its high recovery, and very prone to being jumped or assaulted over, so use sensibly at further ranges.

Vatista brings up a barrier to protect her from attacks, gaining high/mid guardpoint for the duration until its recovery. During this time, she can cancel the barrier into any of her special moves without requiring the charge, including when an opponent hits the barrier. The corresponding commands are:


  • A powerful neutral tool to force the opponent to prepare for multiple options.
  • Allows for unusual zoning patterns such as A Lumen Stella > A Mico Ruseo and triple Lumen Stella/Mico Ruseo partitions.
  • Can be used on reaction to slow moves to create a more advantageous situation, or as a read on the opponent's next move.
  • Vatista will experience hitstop from guarded mid and high attacks, but no blockstun, damage or chip damage.
  • Opponents can cancel their moves upon hitting the guardpoint as they would on block.
  • Vatista can be hit by lows and throws even whilst the barrier is active.
  • It is not recommended to utilise this move as a substitute for learning how to perform charge inputs.

Vatista flails out with her arms in an attempt to grab the opponent. If the throw is successful, she blasts them away with rings of light.
  • Sends the opponent fullscreen, bouncing them off the wall. Is excellent if you want to keep them out, but horrible if you want to keep them in.
  • If you are not in the corner, you can use a delayed dash up 66C to meaty after a successful throw.
  • If A or B Lumen Stella hit the opponent during the animation, it will add damage. The EX version will prorate the throw further, however.
  • The throw will detonate Gems within range, but adds no extra damage or effect.
  • In the rare case a Gem explosion is active as you throw the opponent, it will lower the damage of the throw.
  • Whilst it has average Throw Range, the animation can be a little deceptive.

Universal reversal that blows the opponent back on hit.
  • Requires at least 100 meter and puts you in Veil Off state which grants 20% more damage, but drains your meter at a slow rate.
  • Meter drains much slower when health is below 30% (orange health).
  • If your opponent has Vorpal state and is hit with Veil Off outside of a combo, they will lose Vorpal.

Cancels an action and launches the opponent high into the air on hit.
  • CVO cancel is treated the same as EX cancel; you can only CVO when you can EX and the opponent is in hit/blockstun.
    • Including in the air.
  • Requires at least 100 meter and consumes Vorpal state and drains meter at a fast rate.
  • Has a lot of hitstun, making it easy to combo from.
  • Allows for an additional bounce in the combo if two have been used so far, without hitting the combo bounce limit.
  • Pressing A+B+C can be used for a shortcut for Infinite Worth.
  • Used mostly as a way to tack on extra damage, or to reliably close out the round.

  • Can be cancelled into Leviosa.
  • Can be cancelled with Chain Shift extremely early with [4]6BD~D as an excellent abare option or way to safely contest neutral.
  • Considerably safe way to end your turn and disengage, or to make space from your opponent.
  • Wallbounces when the opponent is cornered, making it excellent for frametraps in corner pressure.

After charging up for a long time, Vatista sends forth a gigantic orb of energy.
  • 53f charge time
  • Due to its odd trajectory, is generally considered less useful than the air version.
  • Very rarely used.
  • Unlike most EX projectile moves, the orb will disappear if Vatista is hit at any point whilst it is active.
  • Changes projectile behaviour when cancelled with CS early, turning it into a bouncy ball.

Vatista shoots the orb diagonally down, doing an aerial backflip as she recoils from the shot. The orb travels at a set downward angle until it hits the height of the grounded version, upon which point it travels similarly.
  • 53f charge time
  • Generally favoured to use outside of pressure over the grounded version due to its more favourable startup.
  • Can be tk'd, causing Vatista to backflip forwards rather than backwards.

Vatista hovers in the air, gathering energy into a huge orb before firing it forwards.

  • Generally preferred to the grounded version due to its more consistent movement pattern.
  • Sees occasional use for oki situations, in CVO combos or to try and force your turn in neutral, but not much outside of that.
  • Unlike most EX projectile moves, the orb will disappear if Vatista is hit at any point whilst it is active.
  • Changes projectile behaviour when cancelled with CS early, turning it into a bouncy ball.

Vatista spreads her Crimson Wings and flash kicks to the skies.

  • Extremely fast charge anti-air with large range.
  • Due to its relatively fast startup, it can be used as an extremely high-risk Anti-Air option select with [2]8A~D.
  • Can be CS cancelled at any point, as well as EX cancelled on hit and block if you have the charge.

Vatista flash kicks higher into the air, striking her enemy down to the ground afterwards on hit.
  • 53f charge time
  • Unlike the A version, is fully invulnerable, making it your primary reversal. Fallen somewhat from its glory days pre-Sys:Celes, but still an invincible Flashkick.
  • Can be CS cancelled on hit for a combo, but the damage is low so it's not recommended unless you need to secure the round or stay on top of your opponent.
  • Inputting the move as [2]37B will cause it to autocorrect to opponents attempting to jump over you.

Vatista flings herself up and forwards as she flash kicks, somersaulting into a downwards drill, before a final flash kick once she reaches the ground.
  • 53f charge time
  • Has the largest horizontal and vertical range of the series, so best used in situations where you don't think the B version will hit.
  • Favourable choice for a post-CS reversal over the B version if you have a lot of meter, as it gives you extra damage and immediate pressure after a knockdown whilst maintaining meter built from CS.
  • Highest damage metered ender outside of infinite worth, although this is generally only worth it if you want to keep meter for the next round.

Vatista turns, shaping her Crimson Wings together in a drill shape before twirling diagonally downwards at high speed.
  • 43f charge time
  • Extremely important move for combos - will be seen at least once in every combo that doesn't start with a combo bounce used.
  • Viable divekick if you have the charge, as it leaves you at advantage on block and can be confirmed upon hitting a grounded opponent into a full combo.
  • More advantageous on hit against a crouching opponent, allowing you to link into a stronger move such as 2C for even better damage.
  • Phenomenally good air-to-air if you have the charge, as the continuous hits lead to a lot of starting damage.

j[8]2B (595+) High, Mid (Final Hit) 20 - -11
Vatista hovers in the air slightly before starting her descent. After she reaches the ground, she pirouettes into a kick.
  • 43f charge time
  • The infamous B Drill, alive and well. Primary tool for use in Vatista's high-low mixup game.
  • Performing B Drill as close to the ground as possible will reduce it to 16 frames of startup (still 20f if performed higher up), allowing you to perform extremely fast overheads. You can set up for powerful 50/50 mixups using Assault j.C, 6[FF] > CS, j[FF] > Lux Fortis or Solis Olio and then doing either B Drill or delay 2C. In the case of the setups that require resources, the mixup can be made gapless.
  • Utilising Partitioning can allow you to use B Drill in extremely ambiguous situations, and lead to more damage by using it to detonate Gems.
  • A successful 3D / Creeping Edge will punish B Drill, so be careful dialling it in after assault jC or with partitions.

Vatista flies upwards before drilling down at incredible speed. Upon landing, she follows up with two leaping pirouette kicks, sending the opponent flying.
  • 43f charge time
  • Primary metered hitconfirm from A Flashkick anti-air. It doesn't always work, though, so pick a god and pray when you use it.
  • Can be used as an air reversal if you have the charge.
  • Since there is a huge gap between the first and second kick, you cannot use it to make yourself -1 after committing to A Flashkick OS (as an example).

Vatista holds out her hand, releasing a floating prism of energy into the air. Crouching places the prism lower.
  • 61f Negative Edge charge time
  • Vatista's setplay tool, generally referred to as 'Gems'. The entirety of her pressure hinges on using this move effectively.
  • Crouching will set the Gem lower to the ground (2Gem), whereas standing will set it higher into the air (5Gem).
  • Gems will remain active forever until either Vatista is hit, she detonates them with one of her moves, or the opponent destroys them.
  • Opponents can hit Gems with any hitbox (including Veil Off) to destroy them. Gems will block 1 hit of projectiles before being destroyed in this way.
  • If Vatista and the opponent hit a Gem on the same frame, the Gem will be destroyed.

When Vatista strikes a set crystal, the prism shatters in a ring-shaped burst, creating a ripple of damaging energy.
  • What occurs when Vatista hits a Gem, and what makes them so scary. Any of her moves are capable of detonating Gems.
  • Powerful starter damage-wise up close, but rather weak if only the outer radius hits.
  • For some reason, the damage and number of hits varies according to the attack that detonated the gem. 5A / jA Det gems will always have 5 hits, whereas everything else will cause the explosion to have 6 hits.
  • Extremely advantageous on block, and can be used in an uncountable number of ways in pressure and neutral.
  • Throwing an opponent whilst near a Gem will detonate it, but will not add any extra damage.
  • Even universal mechanics like Veil Off and Guard Thrust will detonate Gems. The former can see use in high-resource combos, and the latter is extremely unlikely to occur since it requires Guard Thrust to whiff the opponent, and for you to be blocking whilst a Gem is set nearby.
