Overview

Overview

Playstyle
Celica A. Mercury
Pros Cons
  • Has easy crossups in her B Autocombo.
  • Good solo damage regardless of enhanced state
  • Very strong grounded midrange pokes
  • Very good at stopping assists
  • Minerva A normals are not affected by counters
  • DP cannot be safejumped
  • B Autocombo isn't safe on block. 5BBB is not a true blockstring either, meaning she can be punished inbetween hits.
  • Her 4P is extremely niche and can't be used on many teams
  • Chip damage takes her out of enhanced state instantly denying her the ability to play at max capability often
  • Very weak in the air

Healing and Powered Up Specials

When Celica has no red health, her specials do more damage and hitstun. Celica can also recover red health by herself by either finishing her 5B auto combo, or using her EX healing move. These moves can even heal Celica when she has no red health!

Normal Moves

4A

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block Attribute Invuln
1000 All 6 3 [(3)3] 11 -2 B

Not as useful as it was in CF due to not being able to microdash with it in stagger pressure. Although it is still useful as a short range mash button since it is 6 frames

Level P1 P2
1 100 70 (Once)

5A

Version Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery On-Block Attribute Invuln
5A 1500 All 8 5 23 -11 B
5AA 1500 All 12 3 21 -17 B
5AAA 1700 All 16 3 27 -11 B
5AAAA 650×5 All 20 1,1,1,1,1 56 -36 B

5A - Her best normal arguably, being 8 frames and hitting really far lets her control the midrange well and can convert into combos at almost all ranges, she also goes notably farther than other characters when inputting 6A. The downside is that this comes with an enormous hurtbox allowing to the opponent to counterpoke her very easily

5AA - Combo fodder mostly, good for stabilizing routes since it brings airborne enemies down to the ground and bounces them

5AAA - extremely rare to be used not much use since 5B exists

Version Level P1 P2

5BB 550×5 All 7 3,4,4,4,4 35 -20 F 5~25 P
5BBB 2000 All 13 4 35 -17 B

5B- Celica's anti air, it has a very large hitbox hitting in front, above and behind her. It has extremely late head invulnerability so anti air attempts need to be done earlier than most and much like 5A comes with a nasty hurtbox that can get counterpoked. This is her main way of going into her B autocombo outside of combos since it is whiff cancelable

5BB- Auto crossup at close range and projectile invincible it is pretty much the only followup used on whiff during her B autocombo, there is however no way to go into this move gaplessly without having an assist ready to cover her

5BBB - Auto combo ender, on hit it will always transition Celica into a healing animation if it is not special canceled, used in combos mainly to start 214A loops

j.A 1000×2 High 12 2(2)2 23 H
j.AA 1700 High 9 6 25 H

j.A- Generally weak Air to Air normal. It suffers the same hurtbox extension problems as 5A and 5B and is slower than the average air to air normal, she will lose air trades often because of these reasons

j.AA - combo filler since it is locked behind an air autocombo

Anti air bait that leads into her B autocombo, useful for baiting out the slower recovery anti air attacks or going into her B autocombo off of an air combo

1900 High 15 Until L 25L -18 H

Special cancelable divekick, can be made safe on block by canceling into 214A, It's hitbox lets it be used as an "instant" overhead that she can combo from when enhanced

A very niche use assists that doesn't come into play much outside of her best teams, Unlike Yukiko's the point will get healed no matter how far away they are from Celica but in so will make the assist not last as long. It is mainly seen when Celica's partner has an unburstable move that they can go into easily while also being able set up Cross Combo after the assist is done

A solid Super which can corner steal regardless if it connects on hit or block. However, due to how long it leaves Celica vulnerable, it is usually best used with an assist to lock the opponent in place if Celica is cornered and taking tons of pressure or as her combo ender if you have meter. Depending on when you DHC from this, you can either keep the opponent in the corner, or steal the corner.
