Overview

Overview

Some people might call a yo-yo a poor choice of weapon, but they just don't have enough creativity! With speed, range, and dizzying mix-ups, this girl can run circles around any opponent!

Bridget is a well-rounded character who is easy to pick up and play, with high range, good mobility, a meterless reversal, and simple combos that lead into strong pressure situations. However, don't be fooled into thinking that means she's simple! Her Stop and DashGGST Bridget Stop and Dash Overlay Air.pngGuard:

can be layered together and combined with her other tools in countless ways, giving her a uniquely expressive flair in her offense!

To complement this, Bridget has a fantastic suite of neutral tools. f.S and 5H reach very far, and possess both slightly disjointed hitboxes as well as follow-ups with fantastic corner carry that allow Bridget to start her offense on hit. Paired with her multi-hitting 2S to catch movement and help shore up the weakness to 6Ps and similar low profile options, she has the ability to assert dominant control over the ground. Her air control is similarly extremely strong, with j.H being one of the rare air normals to possess a significant disjoint, as well as her wide and high striking 2H.

On defense, Bridget has several strong options to work with, though she must be very careful when using them. A 5 frame and reasonably large 2K gives her AbareAn attack during the opponent's pressure, intended to interrupt it. a bite many characters lack, and StarshipGGST Bridget 623P.pngGuard:

is a perfectly serviceable meterless reversal, though she lacks an invincible Overdrive to beat throws and spaced okizeme. However, when she is forced onto the back foot, the specter of a 0 Guts Rating looms large. She will very frequently die to hits another character would survive with a decent buffer to spare. Combined with her lower than average damage, Bridget has to be right many more times than she is wrong.

In spite of that, her wide and powerful toolkit more than enables her to run circles around her opponent until they die from a thousand cuts. If you like strong tools and boundless creativity, wrapped up in a cute as heck package, Bridget may very well be for you!
Playstyle
Bridget is classified as a Balance type who utilizes strong pokes and mobility to set the range and speed of the match to her preference.
Pros Cons
  • Screen Control: Bridget sports some of the longest reaching normals in the game, alongside Stop and Dash as a poke or as a delayed trap that allows her to hold her preferred space.
  • Corner Carry: Virtually every blockstring, knockdown, and combo has enormous corner carry, easily trapping opponents with few interactions.
  • Tricky Offense: Setting up Stop and Dash and using Rolling Movement allows Bridget to set up large sequences of safe high-low and left-right mix-ups that vortex back into more mix-ups, alongside her Rock The BabyGGST Bridget 63214P.pngGuard:

  • Feinting: Bridget's specials have adjustable momentum, startup, or ambiguous animations, allowing Bridget to bait and punish reactions from opponents.
  • Very Squishy: Bridget's low health and lack of any Guts make her very easy to kill.
  • Low Damage: Bridget's damage output is relatively weak. While she gets good reward from ranged pokes and vortexing mixups, her damage on big hits is lackluster combined with weak damage from her Overdrives, making it harder to finish off an opponent.

Simple, fast mid-range poke.

Not a traditional 5P, instead more akin to other characters' 5K as a simple, fast mid-range poke. For lack of a 2D gatling it cannot combo into Hard KnockdownA knockdown that forces the character into a prolonged knockdown state. After a hard knockdown, teching is disabled briefly, allowing the player who is on the offensive more time to set up a meaty, a mix-up, etc. on hit, but confirms into 6K for large corner carry with a basic combo. Its access to self-gatling also makes this extremely good for pushing opponents out of Bridget's weaker close-range, making itself completely safe on block in the process.

Wall bounce combo filler and natural frametrap tool.

Not particularly special outside combos. Can confirm f.S or 2S into a knockdown from further away than 5H~H.

Almost entirely obsolete to a well-timed 5H gatling for pressure, pushback, R.I.S.C., and even reward on hit. However, this 1F true frametraps from far f.S and 2S, catching 6P abare which is extremely difficult to catch with manually delayed 5H. At close range however, 5H is easier to pressure with due to this move's unforgiving cancel window.

Huge attack with just as huge recovery

In neutral, 5H is Bridget's single largest attack. With it's fast startup for its range, it is a great whiff punish tool, using 5H~H > 236K for corner-carry and basic okizeme. It can also double up as an enormous poke, with difficult but rewarding combos on Counter Hit. Unfortunately its recovery is enormous, often allowing an opponent to entirely close the gap immediately, making it risky to poke beyond its range.

Like most 6Ps, its upper body invulnerability makes it a good counter-poke in neutral against moves like f.S attacks.

Doing a gatling off of either 5K or 2K creates a 1 frame gap between each move's blockstun, trapping both throw and 6P attempts with relative safety.

Bridget moves forward during this attack while simultaneously raising her leg to kick, moving her hurtbox upward and causing many lows to whiff at the right distances. Along with the move's low recovery, these things make for a fairly niche high profile to beat lows or general option to play mid-range in neutral.

Mixup pressure tool, central to Bridget's strongest okizeme.

Functioning like an airdash with an attack, Bridget can run very strong mix-ups. She can cancel the air movement early (using a whiffed Air Throw or j.P) to hit Low or Throw, or cancel into an overhead attack. Even after the Rolling Movement hits, Bridget has time to use an air attack before landing, while being extremely plus, and is so plus she use no air attack and directly frametrap into 2K. She can also jump cancel the air moves for an F-ShikiSometimes known as "Fuzzy Overhead".

Bridget immediately flies up, and back down, causing anti-air attacks to whiff and be punished.

Bridget can make her aerial movement unpredictable and disrupt safe anti-airs like 6P, making it harder to challenging her jump-ins. It is also often very safe on block, unless landing at point-blank range. Unfortunately it is reactable, and easy to anti-air, making it dangerous if the opponent is not already challenging Bridget's air approaches.

This move also completely maintains Bridget's horizontal momentum, allowing you to set up Ambiguous Cross-upDescribes an attack which may cross up, but also may not, depending on extremely subtle and often imperceptible differences in timing or spacing.s, including from Rolling MovementGGST Bridget 214K.pngGuard:

. However this is very slow, and on reaction the crossup can be blocked with Faultless Defense to make it more punishableUnusually, Faultless Defense will pull an opponent inwards when used on crossup, in this case pulling them in closer for a punish.

  • Creates a small shockwave on landing, significantly increasing the horizonal reach.

Slow command grab with enormous range, for use in pressure.

Can be special cancelled into, from both air and ground, with huge range, allowing Bridget to easily threaten a grab in blockstrings. However, it is very slow, and easily interrupted, including with Throw. In contrast, the recovery is comparatively short for a command grab, giving weaker punishes if the opponent jumps or backdashes on reaction. While Throw normally gives better oki, used immediately after Stop and DashGGST Bridget Stop and Dash Overlay Air.pngGuard:

this can combo meterlessly on hit, giving much better reward.

Despite appearance, the air version does not function as a practical air-to-air, due to its extremely small grab height. Bridget can theoretically use it to bait and punish reaction jump-outs, but there's little reason to do this, and it's not practical to set up.

  • Throwable on startup.
  • When grounded, will only grab grounded opponents. Holding P does not adjust timing.
  • When airborne, will only grab airborne opponents. Holding P will delay the grab during the descent. Will force an air throw if held for too long before landing.
  • Landing before the aerial Rock the Baby begins will perform a grounded grab.

. Otherwise there's very little to say to its favour. It is rarely worth using mid-screen as it gives mediocre okizeme, and its low damage for an Overdrive can often be surpassed by good use of Roman Cancels.

With 100% Tension, you can Roman Cancel to set up mix-ups with 2K and 5D that combo into Roger's final attack and are advantageous on block. However, this is extremely expensive, and probably not worth doing.

  • Hitting an opponent in the corner causes a Wall Break and leaves Bridget at +36 frame advantage afterwards.
  • On Roman Cancel, Roger's attacks continue independent of Bridget.
  • If Bridget is interrupted, Roger's attacks will still continue.
  • Roger's initial attacks are smaller than Bridget's, making it possible to whiff some damage.

Niche anti-zoning and whiff punish tool

Roger flies across the stage directly towards the opponent, able to cut through any zoning that would hold Bridget back. Unfortunately only slightly advantaged, and fairly low damage, making it not particularly useful for enforcing pressure, and often still requires Bridget to fight in neutral, making it an expensive option.

With its full-screen range, Roger can whiff punish attacks. Unfortunately it is rarely useful, for its slower input, low damage, and Bridget's access to an enormous 5H which is faster at its range regardless of input timing.

in situations where Bridget's opponent is under her and she has used her double jump or airdash, though, to reiterate, the reward is very low.

Can be used in some long-range Wall Sticks to get a hard knockdown on wall break, but it deals extremely low damage and is best avoided if possible.

  • Hard knockdown on hit.
  • Roger continues to move forward indefinitely until they go off-screen, hitting for a total 5 times on an opponent.
  • Roger flies in a straight line towards the opponent's position on activation. On contact with the floor, Roger will travel along the floor.
