Ground Attacks


  • Neutral Attack: Jab that combos into backhand punch and uppercut. Sequence can be interrupted with long-press, enabling her to fire off 10 low-damage rounds that cannot be absorbed or reflected. Shots fire through foes. Double-tap Attack during the third strike to result in close-quarters flurry of strikes accompanied with knockback uppercut.
  • Forward Tilt: Side kick that can combo into high kick and launching kick. Long-press during any will result in a rapid fire of low-damage shots. Final kick sets up for juggling.
  • Up Tilt: Upward strike with pistol, pops up grounded foes. Long-press at the end to let loose series of low-damage shots.
  • Down Tilt: Low leg sweep kick which can result in knockdown, but not always.
  • Dash Attack: Gun punch with knockback.

Smash Attacks

  • Forward Smash: Giant fist strike signaled by purple glyph. Fist is made from Wicked Weave, so not able to be targeted. Good range, plus knockback.
  • Up Smash: Fist from Wicked Weave tunnels underground, then pops up in front of her, typically launching foes into the air.
  • Down Smash: Massive foot stomps down, created from Wicked Weave. Slowest of the mash moves. Moderate percentage and higher results in bouncing grounded targets, while the heel can also meteor smash.

  • Back aerial: Backward kick with knockback. Long-press to deliver bullets after.
  • Up aerial: Flipping kick, accompanied by stream of gunfire with long-press.
