Under Night In-Birth/UNIST/Carmine
He hungers. His body, drenched in blood thirsts for more, but nothing can satiate his desire
In exchange for his own life force, this warrior has mastered a forbidden and dangerous technique. Making a show of his power, his only objective is to seek fights. He attacks other In-Births because they rub him the wrong way. Another Night... But tonight, the man he defeated belonged to Amnesia. With his final breath, he utters the name, Hilda -- the strongest In-Birth of them all. Carmine is ecstatic with the news, and makes his way to where she is.
Heh heh heh... Yeah, I love that look.
Carmine is a mixed bag of space control with his long range normals and zoning specials, to a hyper aggressive set play character with a plethora of mix up options. He is a high risk/reward character because every aspect of his game play, including his combos, require him to spend his health. You will be treating his life as currency in order to play a neutral game to create openings for his offensive pressure. He is a character that can never be counted out at any point in the match as he becomes increasingly dangerous the lower his life is. The draw backs to Carmine is that he needs to spend a lot of his life to do anything and he lacks a solid reversal option but this balances out his sometimes over whelming options.
Carmine's ability to extend offensive pressure is unique in that it doesn't follow the typical method of anime fighters through dash attacks, as his non-dash specific attacks instantly stops his forward momentum. This means he has to rely more on the range of his normals, frame traps, and certain special moves to create a continuous offense. However, doing this creates gaps in his pressure strings that allow his opponents to counter poke or reversal out, creating a level of risk that needs to be understood when executing these tactics.
During the neutral game you'll want to space control with his long range pokes via 5B, 2C, 5C, and j.C in combination with his zoning tools of 6B, j.6B, 236X, j.236X and 623X. Placing dissolves on the stage is important to establish screen control presence to force your opponent to either play more defensively or take risks to get in on Carmine. This will allow you to capitalize on their risks, create offensive pressure, or gain optimal combo damage once you land a hit. Typically, 6B, 236X, j.236X, and 214X are the ideal methods to place dissolves on the screen. Be careful to not over utilize these attacks since the life loss can add up quickly. Essentially, the goal of Carmine's neutral game is to land any type of hit because he is able to convert stray hits into a full combo that ends in a knockdown to create a mix up/okizeme game after wards.
Carmine's okizeme game involves placing a meaty 236X on top of the opponent then go in with a high/low/throw game and then convert any hit into a combo that ends in a knockdown so the process can be repeated. The other option is to threaten the opponent with a 214[A/B] and have them second guess when they can push a button in fear of getting hit by the follow up attack when you release A or B. This again allows you go for a high/low/throw game that ends in the same way as the 236X route. In this manner, Carmine becomes a heavy set play type of character.

If the opponent uses a move with startup equal or less than this move's advantage, it will result in opponent hitting that move.
±x~±x denotes a possible range of advantage. The left value is when the active frames hit sooner (generally worse) and the right value is for when the active frames hit later (generally better).
