They nest. The web will lure and consume any prey that goes near. He, for her, and her for
herself, they fight. Her feelings point in one direction, to a friend defeated. She sips on
blood, and mud alike, chasing a shadow. His eight legs will crawl through the night once
more, carrying with him her feelings.

Story

He wanders with an unorthodox girl, Tsukuyomi. Byakuya's abilities enable him to cast out a myriad of blades. The power binds and rends his opponents alike. Their motivation is unknown, but it seems he fights to make Tsukuyomi's wish come true. On the Hollow Night, when many In-Births gather, they turn the town into their own "web", and hunt unsuspecting prey.

There's nothing to worry about...
My life exists for you, sister.

Unique Trait

  • Several moves set web traps on the screen that will snare an opponent that touches them, granting Byakuya grd on hit.
    • Webs can be destroyed by special moves or B/C normals, but doing so will drain grd from the oppponent. Most projectiles will not destroy webs.
    • It's worth noting that after coming in contact with a web, it does not connect immediately. "Meaty" webs effectively have 14 frame startup for this reason.
    • Byakuya getting hit or either player teching a throw will clear all existing webs. Causing Byakuya to block will not, however.

Vorpal Trait

  • Webs give slightly more grd on hit.
  • Webs give slightly more grd and deal slightly more chip damage on air block
  • After performing 214XXB, Byakuya can perform a second web before he hits the ground

Fast jab with one of Byakuya's claws.

  • Goes extremely far for an A normal.
  • Tied for Byakuya's fastest normal.
  • It's range and speed makes it amazing for contesting pressure or punishing certain moves.
  • Cornerstone to Byakuya's pressure due to it's range and speed.

A wide thrust with all of Byakuya's claws.

  • One of Byakuya's best buttons.
  • The threat of the 5BB command followup and relatively good frame advantage makes this a very strong pressure tool.
  • It has a relatively disjointed hitbox, letting it safely bait Veil Off when spaced properly.
  • Despite the lack of head invuln, this move is a very strong anti-air due to it's strong hitbox.
  • Works well as a midrange poke, since the ability to cancel into 5BB on whiff makes it very scary to try and whiff punish.

Followup to 5B. Shares an animation with the last hit of Byakuya's rekka.

  • Can be cancelled into on hit, block, or whiff.
  • Byakuya's furthest reaching normal capable of chaining into other normals.
  • You can perform this move twice in one blockstring utilizing smart steer by inputting 5AA 5B.
  • Moves Byakuya a good amount forward, making it good for extending pressure.
  • Stagger window is decent overall, but extremely short compared to the rest of Byakuya's kit, making it a bit tricky to frametrap afterwards.

A quick low swipe with one of Byakuya's claws.

  • Despite the animation, this move is a mid, not a low.
  • Tied with 5A for Byakuya's fastest normal.
  • Range isn't as good as 5A, so this move is more suited for starting close-range pressure, or as a reverse beat.

A far reaching sweep with Byakuya's claws.

  • A very far reaching poke with very good reward.
  • 2C whiff 2A can be easily confirmed into 66b on counter hit.
  • On regular hit it can be confirmed into 236B fairly easily due to it's large stagger window.
  • Has counter hit recovery, making it extremely costly to whiff in neutral.

An upward-angled thrust with Byakuya's claws.

  • Byakuya's primary anti air due to having head invuln, though it's a bit slow.
  • Deceptively good horizontal reach.
  • Hits low, giving it some use as a fake overhead when mixed with 3[C].

A larger version of j.2C with more hits.

  • Covers a huge portion of the screen, making it good for catching opponents trying to move around the air.
  • Launches the opponent for a long time on hit, allowing for easy confirms.
  • Generally + on block when the opponent doesn't shield it, but only one of the six hits needs to be shielded in order to give Byakuya additional landing recovery, so don't rely on it to start pressure.

A fast, forward-moving slide.

  • Very far-reaching low poke for how fast it is.
  • Can't chain into normals, but it can be made safer by spacing well or cancelling into rekkas.
  • Can be used as a strong callout at round-start, but it loses to jumps or assault,

  • Good for punishing an opponent recklessly throwing out fireballs or other long-range attacks.
  • Can confirm into a full combo on hit with 214C.
  • Has a deadzone right in front of Byakuya, so be careful with spacing this move.
  • Can CS on whiff or block to save you from it's very long recovery.

  • Has a deadzone in front of Byakuya when used midscreen.
  • Can be good for baiting low normals, throws, or low shields.
  • Leads into good damage on hit.
  • Drains a block of GRD, so consider the GRD cycle before using this move.

A slower version of Byakuya's Force Function with the attack moved further forward.

  • Not terribly useful.
  • The deadzone is much larger than regular Force Function.
  • Can be difficult to punish from far away for some characters.
  • The IC flash makes it look a bit like 214[X], which can trip some opponents up if they're unfamiliar with the matchup.

Byakuya grabs the opponent and slams them into the ground.

  • Very good oki for a throw, giving Byakuya enough time to set a web and dash up to continue his offense when in the corner.

  • Airborne: 1~52, Standing: 53~59.
    • For Full Charge version: Airborne: 1~101, Standing: 102~108.
  • 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).
  • You can hold down A+B+C to delay activation and gain a few extra benefits, but doing so is highly unrecommended unless trying to run the clock as this move already has a long start up as is.

Cancels an action and launches the opponent high into the air on hit.

  • Airborne: 1~25.
  • 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.
  • Grants an additional bounce if both have been used in the combo so far.
    • If the opponent does end up hitting the ground during the combo, damage is prorated.
  • 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.

  • Shorter range but less recovery than 236B
  • Staple in Byakuya's combos.
  • Punishable on block, but the threat of 236AX makes attempting a punish risky.
  • Can be cancelled into 214X or 214[X] by tapping or holding 4X respectively.
    • Cancelling into the 4A followup can be a good way to reset pressure against inexperienced opponents, but the gap leading into the web is enormous, so a good player will usually kill you for doing this.
  • Extremely long cancel window, letting Byakuya frametrap effectively with 236A~6X.
  • No head invuln, but it's hitbox can make it a decent situational anti-air.

  • Can be cancelled into j.214X or j.214[X] by tapping or holding 4X respectively.
    • Like the grounded version, doing this is very risky but useful against inexperienced opponents.
  • Many characters with vertical reversals can use them to easily punish this move regardless of followup.

  • This move is the same regardless of which button is pressed to input it.
  • Very unsafe on block, so be careful using this move without CS to make it safe.
  • Mediocre oki, so it's generally preferable to end with 236A~4A~X~A or 236A~4A~X~B
  • Can CS on whiff to bait even the fastest reversals in the game.

  • Has more forward movement and a larger hitbox than 236A, but more recovery.
  • Very useful move for hit confirming.
  • Launches on hit unlike 236A, and can juggle into 5A depending on range.
  • Like 236A, can be cancelled into 214X or 214[X] by tapping or holding 4X respectively.
  • Extremely long cancel window, letting Byakuya frametrap effectively with 236B~6X.

  • Can be cancelled into j.214X or j.214[X] by tapping or holding 4X respectively.
    • This can be somewhat difficult to punish for some characters due to Byakuya's height, so you can sometimes get away with using his j.214X followups to continue pressure or return neutral, but don't rely on it.

A 27-hit string ending in a knockdown.

  • Byakuya's primary reversal.
  • Excellent horizontal range for how fast it is.
  • Doesn't have full throw invuln, so it will occasionally lose to throws or command grabs.
  • The first hit has a very strong suction effect, making this move good for punishing extended hurtboxes after CS.
  • Can whiff against jumping or assaulting opponents if not timed properly.
  • Certain moves with forward momentum such as Gordeau's 66C will clip through this move if done close to Byakuya, opening him up to a full punish. Be aware of what forward-moving moves your opponent has.

Startup Active Recovery Overall Advantage Invul
47 - 4 53 +22 -

Byakuya sets a web right in front of him that will snare the opponent on hit.

  • A core part of Byakuya's combos and okizeme.
  • When used while the opponent is in hitstun, startup is reduced to 21f to make combos possible.
  • If Byakuya performs another grounded 214X while another web still exists, it will replace the old one.
    • This is counted separately from webs placed by j.214X and the grounded webs from 623X, meaning Byakuya can have three webs on the screen at once.
  • Webs can be destroyed by B or C normals, and most special moves.
    • Doing so will drain a block of GRD from the opponent. This can be a decent way to disincentivize the opponent from using far-reaching attacks.
  • Webs will give Byakuya about two thirds a block of GRD on hit, and drain half a block from the opponent.
    • This can only happen once per combo per web, meaning he can steal GRD once with 214X and once with j.214X.
  • Having a web nearby will allow Byakuya to combo off of throws for a ton of damage, making his throw mixup very scary.
  • Takes 14 frames to become active when the opponent comes in contact with a web trap, giving the opponent some time to try and hit Byakuya.
    • This also gives Byakuya time to sneak it a throw.
  • If Byakuya gets hit or a throw gets teched, all currently existing webs will dissapear.

  • Won't trigger against most crouching enemies, allowing Byakuya to throw opponents holding downback and get a combo.
  • When used while the opponent is in hitstun, startup is reduced to 23f to make combos possible.
  • Byakuya's primary web for his 623C web setups.
  • Can be destroyed if the opponent stands up for a few frames then returns to crouching, but this opens them up to being hit by lows.

  • Due to the cost, it is usually not recommended to use this move unless it will kill the opponent.
