Under Night In-Birth/UNICLR/Hyde

From Mizuumi Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Profile-hyde.png

He wakes up -- In order to free the girl from the chains of eternity that seal her fate. The
power burned within him, the "Void". The blade he carries, the insulator. Each day became
lost in a sea of banality, living under the threat of the Night. The Hollow Night approaches,
and where reality and fantasy meet, this young boy takes a stand... to reclaim everything,
and return it to nothingness.

Story

An ordinary child from an ordinary high school, who is the protagonist of the story. He was saved by Linne, while under attack by a Void. As a result, he awakened to his power of EXS, and Linne has demanded his help. Since then, Linne has made Hyde's house hers, as well, having Hyde do her bidding. All the while, when the Hollow Night falls on the world, she acts on her own, not wanting to expose him to danger. In order to save her, however, Hyde takes matters into his own hands.

Her will... Everything she wanted,
I'm doing in her stead. That's all.

Gameplay

Being the protagonist of the game, Hyde has the usual "shoto" tools associated with the role (fireball, meterless reversal, etc). He performs well at all ranges with tools like Black Orbiter to cover his approach and Shadow Scare to counter zoners or other long range attacks, while moves like Vacant Shift help rack up damage and provide great corner carry to quickly put his opponent in the corner where Hyde truly excels with his strong rushdown game. His fast normals and varied ways to make himself safe or plus on block through rebeats or spending meter make him difficult to contest. On top of all that, his sword normals do chip damage, meaning that even if the opponent blocks all of your strings, damage will still rack up quickly.

On the flipside, he has limited ways of actually opening the opponent up. A decent spread of natural frame traps and an overhead in charged Strict Daze helps, but Hyde has undeniably subpar mixups, relying mostly on keeping the opponent locked down. In addition, the more knowledgeable the opponent, the more likely they'll use defensive options like shielding or Veil Off to invalidate Hyde's pressure and get themselves out of the corner.

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Neutral: Hyde has a strong midrange game with 236X~236A and can fight characters with bigger buttons than him using tools like 22X. His fast backdash also allows him to whiff punish relatively easily.
  • Frame Advantage: Hyde has easy access to plus frames. Between 5[C] > 2A whiff rebeat and 22B being plus on block and metered pressure resets like 236C and 22C, he can keep his turn and lock down opponents with ease.
  • Defense: Hyde has a great meterless reversal with 623B (as well as a strong metered one in Pale Bringer) and two strong anti-airs with 623A and 3C, the latter infamous for its massive vertical reach.
  • Corner Pressure: Hyde's throw gives him a meterless combo in the corner, making his offense that much scarier. Having great corner carry makes this even more threatening.
  • Chip Damage: All of Hyde's sword normals deal chip damage (more so with Vorpal active), further bolstering an already strong offense.
  • Limited Pressure: While Hyde's pressure is strong, the stagger windows on most of his normals are small, making them difficult to use effectively. His 2A is his only good rebeat whiff option as well.
  • Midscreen Reward: Hyde can’t meaty with 2A off of combos that end midscreen if the opponent techs backwards, forcing him to rely on riskier options to continue pressure. His harder midscreen confirms are also awkward to perform consistently.

Fast upward slash.

  • A version can be used as an anti-air, but 3C is usually the better option since it's far less risky.
    • Can only be whiff canceled upon landing.
    • On hit, can cancel into j.236C and can lead to a full combo if 623A is used as a starter.
    • First hit can also be EX canceled on hit or block. 236C and 22C are the best options there since they both make Hyde safe on block and can easily convert into a combo on hit.
    • Generally used for ending combos with EX moves.
  • B version is Hyde's main reversal.
    • Reaches higher, and does more damage than the A version.
    • Highly punishable if blocked or whiffed.
    • Great anti-air and combo ender. Can also be used as a decent combo starter using Chain Shift.
      • If used as a combo ender, the opponent can forward tech.
  • C version is also a reversal.
    • Similar to B version, but does more damage, reaches slightly higher, and sends the opponent flying instead of having them land right in front of Hyde.
    • Like the B version, the opponent can forward tech if this is used as a combo ender.

Hyde rises forward into the air.

  • Both A and B versions do 36 damage on chip (39 in Vorpal).
  • A version only has Hyde slightly leap into the air.
    • Becomes airborne quickly, making it useful as a throw punish.
  • B version sees Hyde rise forward higher into the air.
    • Covers a lot of ground quickly, so it can be used occasionally as an option to close distance between you and the opponent or chase down your opponent in the air.
    • As of UNICLR, landing recovery can be EX canceled on both block and whiff.
  • The second hit does 48 damage on chip (52 in Vorpal).
    • Can be +1 on block if delayed enough.
  • The final hit of the follow-ups knocks the opponent to the ground with a diagonally downward slash. Does 76 damage on chip (83 in Vorpal)
    • Can combo afterwards if rekkas were delayed enough and hitstun proration permits.
  • C version requires no additional inputs.
    • Cannot be blocked in the air, unlike the A and B versions.
    • Useful as a combo ender for extra damage and corner carry.

Hyde stabs the ground and causes flames to erupt from the ground. A version spawns flames a short distance from Hyde, while the B version creates them further ahead, and the C version starts right in front of Hyde and keeps moving foward like a wave. Flames cannot spawn off-screen.

  • A version does 164 damage [56 from stab + 118] on chip (205 [61 stab + 144] in Vorpal). Flame does 30 damage on shield (60 in Vorpal).
    • Good midscreen poke and round-start option.
    • Useful for zoning and punishing certain ranged attacks.
  • B version does 184 damage [56 from stab + 128] on chip (245 [61 stab + 184] in Vorpal). Flame does 50 damage on shield (100 in Vorpal).
    • Slower startup.
    • Makes for a decent frame trap due to the long startup, particularly if slightly delayed after using Force Function.
    • As of UNICLR, flames will spawn closer if the stab connects -- slightly past the tip of the sword -- allowing it to be used at closer ranges at midscreen.
    • Can be plus in the corner and at certain ranges midscreen if the sword and flames connect.
  • C version does up to around 398 damage [56 from stab + 38 per flame pulse] on chip (511 [61 for stab + 50 per flame] in Vorpal. Flame does 10 damage per pulse on shield (20 in Vorpal).
    • Useful for starting pressure, particularly in or close to the corner.
    • Eruptions keep going even if Hyde is hit.
    • Will reverse direction and angle upon reaching the wall.
    • Can pull opponents out of the corner.
