BBCF/Nine the Phantom

From Dustloop Wiki

Overview

Overview
Nine the Phantom focuses on mid-long range setplay and screen control. She has many unique twists on traditional characters including a teleport dash, unique gatlings, and Drive. Instead of a traditional dash and airdash, Nine's movement comes from teleports, letting her move across the screen in unique ways. On offense, Nine can uniquely gatling her standing/crouching normals into any other standing/crouching normal. This does not apply to command normals, however. This ties into her Drive, which lets Nine cast spells depending on normal attacks that were recently blocked or hit. These spells make up a diverse set of tools that add to Nine's strong setplay and okizeme. While she can stick to a simple gameplan, Nine rewards smart and creative play with her massive toolset.

Ability: The Abyss Diver

In the game's lore Nine does not possess a Drive, but knows how to use magic. However this still uses the D button in game so in gameplay terms it still works like a Drive.

Nine's normal attacks are tuned to specific elements: A for Water, B for Air, and C for Fire. When her normal attacks hit/are blocked by her opponent, she gains mana for that element (Visualised by glowing coloured "ribbons" behind her). Pressing D casts a spell using all Nine's mana.

Nine can save up to three mana - getting a fourth will delete the oldest one. Different combinations of mana will give different spells (20 in total!). Each spell is determined by the amount of each mana, not the order they are gained.

Nine has two slots: Active and Stock. The Active slot is where she stores her mana, and the Stock slot is a backup slot, where she can store mana from the Active Slot via Seamoss Gate.

All of nine's normals use strike attributes, but unusually, they can never clash with other strikes.
Overdrive: Burning Red
Nine's normals will gain mana even on whiff. She also receives an element buff when she uses a spell similar to Flax Nurture's buff.
Unique Movement: 4-Way Teleport Dashes

Nine's movement is unorthodox: instead of a run or air dashes, she has teleports that can be canceled into a second teleport. While the first teleport can only go forwards or backwards as normal, the second teleport can go up, down, left or right, giving her lots of unique opportunities to move around the opponent. Be aware though, her teleport is only first-frame invulnerable to projectiles only, meaning she can't use it to escape properly timed meaty attacks and frametraps.

  • All teleports share the same frame data
  • Nine can use both teleports after her double jump.
    • However, she cannot double jump after using a teleport, even if the first teleport was performed on the ground.
  • Vertical teleports can be input at any time during the initial dash, horizontal ones need to wait until after the first 11 frames (Meaning you won't accidentally get a second horizontal dash by mashing the first one a little).
  • After a second teleport is inputted, it always begins 30F after the first one stated. There is no vulnerable gap between the two dashes.
  • Nine is in Counter Hit recovery during the second teleport.

Normal Moves

StartupThe time before an attack is active. Written startup values include the first active frame, so the startup on a frame chart will display one less square than the written value. Frames
Active The active frames of an attack refers to the amount of time an attack can hit the opponent. Frames
InactiveFrames in the middle of multi-hit attacks which cannot hit the opponent, but are after the move has become active at least once. Frames
Recovery The recovery of an attack refers to the amount of time an attacker must wait before they may perform another action, even blocking. Frames
Special RecoveryThe recovery of an attack refers to the amount of time an attacker must wait before they may perform another action.Recovery frames which happen under abnormal conditions, such as after landing. Frames
ProjectileIndicates an entity that exists separately from the character has become active. Usually something like a Fireball A projectile which usually travels slowly across the screen in a horizontal path above the ground.. Active
CancelA window in which to cancel a move. Can be varied in usage. Window
  • All of Nine's 5X normals can cancel into each other, even themselves, so 5A5A and 5B5A are possible.
    • No matter the button, there can only be two 5X normals in a string, so 5A5A5B and 5B5A5C are not possible.
  • All 2X normals can also cancel into each other
    • Like 5X, there can only be two normals in a string, regardless of button, so 2C2B2C is not possible.
    • 5X and 2X normals can be used at any point, but the limit isn't removed, so 5A2C5B is possible, but 5A5B2C5B is not.
  • Command normals (4X, 6X, 3C) follow more traditional rules and have limited gatlings in comparison.
  • All normals are hardcoded not to clash and so cannot clash cancel
    • Despite all normals being strike-projectiles, Nine cannot destroy them and will be hit.
    • This also results in Hakumen being unable to cut her normals unlike other strike-projectiles.

Nine fires a blast of water. Possibly Nine's best ground poke. While it doesn't have as much reach as 5B and 5C, it has enough reach to hit an opponent at round start and get a full combo off of it. It is easy to hit confirm and convert via 5D or followup normals into full combos.

  • Longest reaching ground poke
  • Cancels into itself once on block and on hit

Nine breathes out a gust of wind. 5B has a lot of reach, making it a great ground. However, at max range, it doesn't really convert into much damage. Usually the most you can get is 5B > 5B > 214A. It's mostly best used as a poke that'll keep the opponent cautious of either trying to approach Nine recklessly or trying to jump out of pressure after you've been pushed out far.

  • Cancels into itself once on block and on hit

Nine sends out a blast of fire. Typically just combo or blockstring filler to help create the Kunzite/[WFF] or Amethyst/[WF] spell, but also makes for a strong meaty for setups during okizeme due to its range and ability to be jump canceled on block.

  • Anti-air option for about round start distance
  • Good option to catch jump outs

An upward blast of fire. 6C can be a good anti-air option to go for at round start or at the same distance in other situations in neutral. Typically, it's safer to do jump up j.A to catch opponents in these situations but CH 6C is a more damaging starter and can be worth going for in situations where you feel the risks are small. It's also pretty good at catching opponents trying to jump out of pressure.

  • Ground Combo ender to setup Fairy oki or Uvarovite
  • Sometimes a good round start option

A circular carpet of flame. Because of it's ability to give knockdown, 3C is often used as a ground combo ender in order to setup Fairy/[WWF] oki or toss out Uvarovite/[AAF]

It's also sometimes a good round start option because of its range and ability to hit low. On hit, you can convert it into a full combo at round start by using Coral of Catastrophe/[Fx1] afterwards. Outside of round start situations, you can convert it into a full combo if you have Kunzite/[WFF] stocked or make it by hitting 3C.

  • Great air to air normal up close

A midair wave of water. Nine's j.A is her best air to air normal up close because of the wide arc of its hitbox in comparison to her other element air normals. You'll also find yourself using j.A a lot in air combos in order to create Tanzanite of Torment/[Wx3] to bring the opponent back down to the ground or to create Kunzite/[WFF].

  • Great air to air normal at longer ranges
  • Great air to ground normal in a very specific situation.

A midair gust of wind. Nine's longest reaching air to air normal. It works well at poking opponents at its max range where j.A can't reach. It also can be a great air to ground normal at this range but the situation is more specific. You'll typically use it when you're falling back down to the ground from a well spaced air teleport dash/backdash. At lower heights, it can convert into a full combo on hit and give you good frame advantage on block.

  • Crumples on counterhit
  • Very unsafe on block unless special cancelled.
  • Decent punish starter

Nine thrusts a blade of dark energy forward. Does not require any elements to be used. But also means it can only be used at the start of a combo, immediately after a different spell has been used or by switching into a void slot with Seamoss Gate. It's particularly useful for slightly increasing the damage in BnB routes, depending on how the opponent is being juggled, because of its bonus proration, and for getting an air knockdown before casting a setplay spell, such as Uvarovite or Morganite.

Fires a horizontal tornado. As one would expect from a spell that's more or less functions as a laser beam, these spells can be a great anti-zoning tool to keep zoners cautious of pressing buttons. It can be equally useful in general just to hinder an approach. These wind spells also tend to get used to combo into her Flame Punisher distortion to tack on more damage to a combo to end a round.

Creates a flaming skull in front of her. For the most part, this spell is only useful to confirm a round start 3C into a full combo using Coral of Anger [Fx1]. There's also a few specific blockstrings that'll open up an opponent with 3C low that Rubellite of Rage [FxN] will allow you to convert into a full combo. Fatal Counters on successful Counter Hit.

  • Creates a floating projectile in front of Nine that tracks her position for a set period of time
  • Disappears if it hits the opponent, its own timer runs out (Approximately 3 seconds) or if Nine is hit.

Creates a floating goat skull that acts like a floating hitbox. If Nine uses her teleport dash the skull won't teleport with her, instead it quickly floats towards Nine's new position (Probably hitting her opponent if she teleported to the other side of them). Useful for approaching and deterring attacks as it will hit opponents on contact even if Nine is blocking or not doing anything in particular at the moment. Beware that it will clash with projectiles, doesn't last very long and will disappear if Nine gets hit.

  • Good for resetting pressure
  • Good for hindering approaches
  • Vanishes after 5 in games seconds if it doesn't hit anything
  • On hit, has a shock effect

Fires an electric orb that slowly travels across the screen. Can be a good way to attempt to reset pressure against some characters. The advancing electric ball can give opponents limited options to deal with it at such a close range. Typically, they'll have to stay on the defensive or will attempt to try and jump out and risk getting tagged by Nine's 6C. If you happen to have it in neutral, it's also very good at hindering approaches, either from the air or from the ground depending on where you throw out the spell

  • Good oki tool
  • Goes away if Nine blocks or gets hit by an attack

Summons a fairy to attack the opponent three times. A great spell for oki. Fairy oki is one of the more common enders to go for at the end of a combo. Syncing up your blockstring to go with the fairy's 3 consecutive attacks that happen at fixed time intervals is a great way to reset pressure or keep a mixup safe.

If you have it available, Taafeite can also be great in neutral. The timed consecutive attacks can greatly limit an opponent's options and is great cover for an approach.

  • Good spell in neutral and blockstrings
  • Holding the D button moves it forward more and delays the explosion. Hold up or down on the stick to move it up and down.
  • Blows back and wall bounces on ground or air hit for easy conversion into a combo
  • Does a good chunk of chip damage on regular block and drains a good amount of barrier on barrier block
  • The orb can be destroyed by the opponent before it explodes.
    • Orb can be destroyed by all attribute attacks except for throws

Summons an orb of dark energy that explodes in a + shape. Great spell for neutral. Because it fires a laser beam in all four directions from its core, it's pretty great at controlling space and limiting your opponent's movements.

However, if you can manage to get it out in a blockstring, Andradite is also quite good in pressure. It's good for resetting pressure but on regular block, it'll also deal a great amount of chip damage and on barrier block, it'll take an equivalent amount of barrier away from the opponent.

  • Approximately 2 second delay between the targeting circle first appearing and when the rain of fire comes down.
  • Tracks opponent location before activating

Creates a cloud above the opponent that rains down fire. Uvarovite sees most of its use as an oki tool. When the fire shower eventually comes down, it'll trap the opponent in blockstun for a fairly long time. The fire shower is also really good at obscuring what's happening on the screen and can be a good place to try and slip in a mixup.

In neutral, Uvarovite can also be pretty good. The area that the fire shower comes down in is fairly large. Even throwing it out at midscreen will greatly limit the way opponents can move without getting themselves caught in the fire shower, which would allow you to get in. When the opponent is closer to the corner, Uvarovite can be especially good in neutral because they have even less places to run, making it easier to lock them down to cover an approach.

  • Great combo, mixup and anti-air destroyer tool
  • Launches on ground hit
  • Ground bounces on air hit

Creates a large meteorite and drops it on the opponent. Possibly Nine's most useful spell. Kunzite has a lot of great uses.

Kunzite is a great spell in combos since the ground bounce it causes will allow you to easily followup with 5A/4A up close or 6C further out to keep your combo going.

In pressure, Kunzite is a good overhead that can open people up for a full combo.

Because throwing out Kunzite halts Nine's falling momentum completely, it's an amazing AA destroyer that converts into a full combo on hit and on block, allows her to safely come down to start pressure.

  • Cannot be regular blocked. MUST be barrier blocked.
  • Drains a good amount of barrier on barrier block
  • Countdown timer goes away if Nine is hit, techs a throw, or if her opponent techs a throw
  • 1500 minimum damage

Nine creates a countdown timer on the opponent. After a short while, the opponent is bombarded with pillars of dark energy. A great spell to just throw out. Closer to the end of the countdown, it gives the opponent reason to start going on the defensive or either risk having a button press get punished for big damage. On barrier block, Nephirite drains a pretty good chunk of barrier if the opponent barrier blocks while completely obscuring what Nine's doing. For these reasons, Nephirite can be great to either allow you to approach your opponent and start pressure. It can also be good for resetting pressure depending on what the current situation is when it's about to activate.

Dashes at the opponent while wreathed in flames, creating an explosion on impact. Crimson Raider is typically used an air combo ender in situations where you can bring the opponent back down to the ground with Tanzanite of Torment/[Wx3].

Because of it's tracking, Navy Pressure is a great tool to punish an opponent's attempt to do stuff at longer ranges and make them more cautious of doing so in the future.

  • Good reversal option
  • Requires an active element for the hitbox and invulnerability to activate
  • Gives an elemental buff depending on her most recent active element.
  • Normals and single-element spells of the corresponding element get 20% increased damage. Normals also become able to deal chip damage, while spells get better proration values.
  • Length of buff varies depending on how much of the element was in the active slot

Flax Nurture has invulnerability on start up and is also punishable only on instant block, making it a great option as a reversal. However, it does have its shortcomings as a reversal. The hitbox is lacking vertically in the upper part of the explosion so opponents can jump over it and punish for a full combo as they'll falling down. Characters with normals with better reach can also outspace the horizontal reach of Flax Nurture.

The length of the buff depends on the amount of the element you had in your active slot. The more of the element in the active slot, the longer the buff will last. If there are no stocks at all, the move will misfire, dealing no damage and having no invulnerability.

The listed startup frame coincides with the move's first active frame. ActiveHow many frames where there is a hitbox that can hit an opponent. The first active frame occurs on the listed startup frame. RecoveryHow many frames that the character must go through after an attack's active frames to automatically go back to a neutral stance, or the total duration of the move if it has no hitbox/creates projectiles. Frame AdvHow many frames the attacker's recovery ends before the defender's blockstun ends if the attack is blocked. A positive value indicates that the attacker recovers first, while a negative value indicates that the defender recovers first. This value usually assumes that the attack's first active frame (of each hit, if multi-hit) is blocked. On ODRThe difference between the attacker's total animation length and the period the opponent is in overdrive raid. This frame advantage is based off the assumption that both players input during the hitstop of a prior move, so that this attack and ODR start on the same frame.

  • A full reversal, but only against projectiles.

Nine fires two beams of dark energy, one from her hand and the other from her foot. On Overdrive, Nine finishes it by having Hi no Kagutsuchi breathe a large torrent of fire from its mouth. Because of its horizontal range, Flame Punisher tends to be the easiest distortion to combo into to tack on extra damage to a combo to end a round. It's horizontal range also makes it great for sniping opponent's attempting to zone or setup an oki from a distance like Lambda's 236D.

Nine creates a localized explosion in front of her. On Overdrive, Nine creates multiple explosions that carry the opponent into the air. A great distortion for 100 meter combo enders for max damage. First, you can combo into this to get a 3 Element spell in both your slots and then you combo into Azurite Inferno, which gets a damage buff for each element in both of your slots, to maximize its damage output.

Nine performs a downward stomp. If it connects, the opponent is crucified on spears and Nine bombards them with arrows of dark energy. On Overdrive, the arrows are bigger and stronger and Nine also finishes the opponent off with pillars of dark energy, similar to her Nephrite spell. The move becomes stronger and flashier depending on the number of elements in your spells, especially if those elements are in your stock slot. Has an incredible base damage at full mana but scales rapidly as it plays out, basically ensuring that the last hit, and the entire overdrive extension, will be at minimum damage even if this attack is performed on its own.

-Minimum Damage with no mana: 800

-1 Element in Active Slot = No Change

-2 Elements in Active Slot = +100

-3 Elements in Active Slot = +200

-1 Element in Stock Slot = +100

-2 Elements in Stock Slot = +250

-3 Elements in Stock Slot = +490

-Overdrive = +500

With full slots and Overdrive, it has one of the highest minimum damages in the game. Base (800) + 3 Active Elements (200) + 3 Stocked Elements (490) + Overdrive (500) = 1990.

Oddly it is possible to Rapid Cancel the first hit and the overdrive extension hits. This only has a niche use of hitting with your Exceed Accel to close out a round.

Nine kicks the opponent on startup, then commands Hi no Kagutsuchi to crush them in between its fists. Puts Nine in Active Flow if she hasn't already been in it already. On Active Flow, the collision of fists causes a small explosion that ignites the opponent on fire. Has full invul, but is relatively unsafe on block, has low minimum damage and cannot be rapid-canceled.

Nine's Astral. Nine commands her demon, Hi-no-Kagutsuchi, to devour the opponent and ensnare them in a cage of fire. She then rises into the air and summons a large pentagram before calling down scores of meteors to annihilate the opponent. Can be comboed into from a 3C so going for it after bringing the opponent back down to the ground with Tanzanite/[Wx3] is a good place to go for it if you've met the conditions.
