From Dustloop Wiki

Overview

Overview

Ramlethal is a mid-ranged brigadier who controls neutral with her massive swords. She can also expend her swords in order to shoot them as projectiles to dominate the corner.

Key to Ramlethal’s mid-ranged domination is her f.S and 5H. They are disjointed, fast and have long range. When close up, she can pressure with her swift 5K and three-hit rekka A series of special attacks that are only available after the first one is performed., Erarlumo, of which the first two hits are dash cancelable. Her air control is also great; j.S is basically an aerial version of f.S, and j.H has a huge vertical hitbox; excellent for jump-in attacks.

Ramlethal can apply suffocating corner pressure with Bajoneto, a projectile attack that fires a sword. The sword explodes if it hits a wall, which can extend blockstrings or lead to powerful wall combos. However, when fired, the swords take time to return. Without swords, her S and H buttons are much weaker. The swords can be retrieved quickly by walking over the spot they landed. At the corner, she can shoot her swords to great extent, as she can pick them up while pressuring the opponent or even during a combo.

Generally, it’s best to shoot swords off of confirms or for corner pressure to avoid the risk of losing them. However, the Calvados overdrive retrieves both swords. With 50% Tension, you have the option of playing fast and loose with sword projectiles, just to take them back again. Before expending swords, weigh your options carefully.

Ramlethal is blessed with amazing buttons, outstanding corner pressure and an adorable puppy on her win screen! What else could you ask for?

 Ramlethal Valentine is an incredibly well-rounded character who boasts an exceptional midrange game and relentless corner pressure.
Pick if you like Avoid if you dislike
  • Giant normals and fast speed to force opponents back and safely push them towards the corner.
  • Looping pressure from anywhere, with an aggressively high-reward corner pressure.
  • Versatile and extensive combos accessible from almost any hit.
  • Simple to learn basics, with an easy-to-understand moveset and gameplan.
  • Reliance on whiff-punishable normals and basic movement for playing neutral.
  • Pressure that doesn't provide many mixups or set-ups, instead relying on strong RPS Rock Paper ScissorsA situation wherein an attacker and a defender have options that only beat certain responses from their opponent. For example, on wakeup a defending opponent may use a reversal to stop an attacker from using an attack, but the attacker can also block to defeat the reversal. If the attacker blocks, the defender can use the opportunity to take the offensive..
  • Advanced pressure and combos requiring frequent use of a precise 'dash kara cancel' tech.


Unique Mechanic: Brigadier Swords
Ramlethal is built around her two familiars and the large swords they carry for her. Her S button and H button moves are mapped to one of her two swords, and using Bajoneto will launch them. Launched swords change the properties of her moves that use either one or both of her swords. The swords will return to Ramlethal after a delay, but can also be picked up by walking or dashing over them.

On grounded Counter Hit, it can also link into 5K and c.S, for better damage and okizeme.

Due to its very short range, with even less on crouching opponents, pressure can easily outspace 5P, and it is rarely useful for RPS Rock Paper ScissorsA situation wherein an attacker and a defender have options that only beat certain responses from their opponent.

Fast close-range poke and frametrap tool, and Ramlethal's abare and punish against spaced pressure.

With its fast speed, low recovery, and good range this is one of Ramlethal's safest attacks when 2S is too slow to stop an opponent.

  • Jump cancelable.
  • Ramlethal's highest damage starter.
  • Low pushback, c.S will leave Ram close enough for another c.S.

Mostly used in blockstrings for its wide range of gatlings, such as a delayed 2S to catch jumps and 6H for a 2 frame frame trap An offensive technique where the attacker leaves a small opening in their offense, goading the defender into performing an attack. This opening is designed such that the attacker can easily counter the defender's attack with their own., or in combos. However, there are situations where this can function as an anti air for people directly above you. Long active frames also make this a great meaty, as it's easy to run up and establish pressure from farther knockdowns and increase its frame advantage on closer ones.

The mother of all pokes. Very disjointed, unparalleled range and speed, and safe on block. The central defining feature of Ramlethal's neutral.

Able to outspeed, outrange, or disjoint-crush any other poke, only weak to 6P or IAD An air dash performed from a standing position as quickly and as low to the ground as possible from a jump. Done by inputting 956 754, and depending on the game, using a dash macro right after a jump. jump-ins on read. Combined, these make it extremely easy for Ramlethal to attack opponents from a safe distance. The only drawback is f.S rarely confirms into much damage outside of the corner, meaning despite its relative lack of risk it can be a little harder to get significant reward.

With high pushback and always safely confirming into 5H at any range, Ramlethal can personally push an opponent too far out of range to challenge her, gradually cornering them. Additionally, Ramlethal's f.S > 5H string builds high amounts of R.I.S.C., meaning even without dealing damage she quickly sets up for devastating damage from neutral.

  • If H sword equipped then can be used as frametrap before 214P, 236S and 236H without delay.
  • Data in [] refers to when H sword is unequipped.
  • More rewarding on counterhit than f.S.

A poke with slightly more reach than f.S; this gives it good utility as a check against opponents attempting to dash in after a f.S is blocked using the delay cancel properties of the move, this then forces the opponent to respect a blocked midrange f.S more often.

When in the corner attempting to use 236H, f.S > 5H on block will push your opponent about a half-screen distance away, so only confirm into 236H sword throw if you're near enough to the corner to get a combo off it. On counterhit, Ramlethal can combo into 214K and link off that into a combo.

This is part of the reason that misusing 236H is so bad for Ramlethal, as f.S is significantly less scary as a poke without 5H to enforce afterwards to stop opponents from dash blocking in.

Universal overhead attack. Tapping D gives a fast but weak overhead, while holding down D with give a much slower but much more powerful strike.


Uncharged Dust Attack

A very weak overhead mixup, only for use with 50% Tension.

On its own, almost useless, lacking advantage on hit, cannot combo on Counter Hit, and is extremely unsafe on block. When backed by RRC, or used after BRC, this becomes a practical mixup able to combo on hit and retains pressure on block, being a practical utility for Tension generated in pressure.

Uniquely, Ramlethal can perform 236H > 5K > 5D for a gapless overhead, being much safer than a standard gatling which opens a slight gap for backdashes and invincible reversals. However, it is impossible for uncharged Dust Attack to practically meterlessly combo or be safe on block using Bajoneto's explosion, making this still reliant on Tension.


Charged Dust Attack

On-hit, holding 8 will activate Homing Jump for a large combo opportunity.

Slow and unsafe but highly rewarding overhead. Very impractical once an opponent is ready to react to it.

By contrast to the uncharged version, charged Dust Attack can fully combo meterlessly for high damage. However, it is very reactable with a bright orange telegraph, and still unsafe when blocked. Additionally, Ramlethal only has setups to frametrap into a charged Dust Attack, meaning an opponent does not even nessecarily need react.

  • Worse starter than 5K, some combos that start from 5K will not work from 2K.

This button is second only to 5P in terms of abare. The low hurtbox works wonders in mashing out of your opponent's strings and the frame advantage is helpful too. 2K also sees a lot of use in corner pressure as it has enough range to frame trap after a sequence like c.S > 236H. Additionally, 2K can be used as a sneaky run in tool due to Ramlethal's fast dash speed, and the pressure she gets on hit with 2K > 2D > 214P

Safe large low poke, also great to catch dashes with. You'll mostly be using this to check approaches that f.S is weak to (specifically low profile moves). Hits low but 2K is far better as a high/low mixup tool. Unlike 2K, it can be cancelled into after c.S to catch backdash attempts, making her strike/throw game scarier.

This is Ramlethal's primary launcher, but it can also make for a high risk/high reward pre-emptive anti-air.

  • Upper-body invulnerable.

Ramlethal's most reliable anti-air, otherwise a fairly unremarkable 6P. Blasts the opponent away on air connect, but leaves standing if it hits a grounded opponent. 6P will combo into 214P anywhere, letting Ram secure knockdowns off of her P buttons. On air connect, 6P will combo into 623P for a juggle. It's only real downside is that the horizontal range is lacking due to how the move animates, and canceling into 6P at certain ranges will cause it to whiff.

A heavy disjointed move with huge reward on counterhit, mostly relegated to combo filler and frame traps due to how long the startup is. The framedata on this move is genuinely horrendous, so it should only be used when it can be safely cancelled into something else. 6H will combo from 5K on an airborne opponent, but will drop if they're grounded. Ramlethal mostly uses this as a way to get a launch close to the corner, as it provides more upfront corner carry and damage compared to 2H.

  • Can throw the opponent either forward or backwards.

A pretty good throw, all things considered. Gives a manually timed safejump midscreen and setups in the corner with swords/meter. Ramlethal's throw also gives you the option to OTG anywhere with 214H and 632146H (along with 236236S in the corner) for more damage and to potentially seal a round. Be careful as OTG 214H is unsafe on hit. Weirdly enough, OTG 236236S will not break the wall.

Grounded combo ender at a far range to maintain advantage, and a risky pressure-ending frametrap.

Useful for confirming from the far-range of 5K and 2K, and mid-range of f.S > 5H, ending close enough with enough advantage to frametrap into 2K. On block however, it is very unsafe, and gives no reward without Counter Hit or air hit, making it rarely ever worth using unless backed up by a Roman Cancel. At closer ranges it is much better to confirm into ErarlumoGGST Ramlethal Valentine Erarlumo 1.pngGuardAllStartup16Recovery12Advantage-5. Not particularly useful in neutral, reaching approximately the same range as 5H, with no major advantages.

Serves a major role as a combo extender with its high vertical launch, allowing extensions into 5K or c.S, leading to large and easy combos near the corner. However this is largely dependant on Combo Decay, meaning it will not work from all starters.

  • Floating crumple on grounded hit, leaving Ramlethal +5 but the opponent can block. On Counter Hit able to perform a true combo for up to 11F.

A powerful Rekka A series of special attacks that are only available after the first one is performed. for easy confirms from pokes, granting sizable Tension, chip damage, corner carry, and R.I.S.C., with rewarding frametraps.

Individually each attack acts as a basic frametrap. By Kara Cancel A type of cancel where the beginning of an action is quickly canceled into another before the first action completes its startup.ing from the Dash Cancel of the first and second attacks, it is possible to cancel back into the first attack, creating a self-sustaining pressure loop. Once near the corner, these can also be kara cancelled into Bajoneto HGGST Ramlethal Valentine Bajoneto H.pngGuardAllStartup20RecoveryTotal 43Advantage+3 to immediately begin corner pressure and continue the onslaught. With relatively low reward even on Counter Hit (Erarlumo 3 causes a Soft Knockdown and leaves her +24) once you have meter for Roman Cancel, it becomes dangerous for an opponent to mash, allowing Ramlethal to continue to crank R.I.S.C for even more reward on hit, and she'll continue gain tension to keep the loop going.


Erarlumo 1 (214P)

The beginning of pressure setplay and an easy way to gain an advantage at midscreen. Most pokes at close-range will safely blockstring into Erarlumo 1. While cancelling from 5P/2P and 5K/2K is unsafe to 6P attacks, the use of 6P and 2D will allows safe blockstrings, and it can take advantage of opponents anticipating dangerous frametraps like 6H.

Uniquely weak if Instant Blocked as no follow-up can frametrap a Throw and the move naturally advances into Throw range, requiring either 50% Tension or a kara cancel into whiffing Sildo DetruoGGST Ramlethal Valentine Sildo Detruo.pngGuardAllStartup22Recovery17Advantage-2.


Erarlumo 2 (214P~214P)

A simple pressure extender, maintaining the option to reset into Erarlumo 1, but with riskier frametrap options due to Erarlumo 3 being unsafe. By delaying the attack, you open a punishable gap, but will receive substantially more reward on hit, and better resources on block, making it a good option to punish delayed abare.

Characters with access to frame 10 or faster invincible attacks (e.g. Sol 623SGGST Sol Badguy 623X.pngGuardAllStartup9Recovery18+10 LandingAdvantage-28) can use it to escape Erarlumo pressure with no consequences. That is because Erarlumo 2 itself is -10 on block, negative enough for a punish with a most reversal attacks. Attempts of a frame trap or dash-cancelled special will make you eat a counter-hit. Empty dash cancelling will leave you extremely minus. Be prepared to bait or safely continue pressure with RC.

  • Delayed version deals additional blockstun, launches on ground hit, and launches higher on air hit.

Erarlumo 3 (214P~214P~214P)

Rewarding pressure ender with combo potential on delayed hits, but with no cancels at all, this is extremely punishable on block. When backed with 50% Tension to make it safe on block, it becomes dangerous for an opponent to risk the frametrap, making pressure resets from previous rekka way more powerful.

Erarlumo makes a great universal combo ender, with good damage, huge corner carry, and situationally serviceable okizeme From Japanese "起き攻め". Attacking an opponent about to wake up after they were knocked down, usually with meaty attacks or mix-ups..

  • Ground bounces into a soft knockdown on hit. Delayed version bounces much higher, for longer, with less horizontal launch.

  • Data in [ ] refers to the delayed versions.
  • Erarlumo 1 and 2 are Dash cancelable. The dash cancel can kara cancel into all specials except Sabrobato, including Erarlumo 1.
  • Erarlumo 1 and 2 can cancel into the next Erarlumo on whiff.

Also referred to as Flip by the community.

An advancing low crush with remarkable range, which can frame trap from fS and 5H and can also serve to bait anti-airs and slip out of tricky air situations.

Can be used from almost any distance to frame trap, even after 5H and Faultless Defense. Its fast enough to frame trap after almost all buttons, with a 3 frame gap only allowing buttons like Sol 5K to contest it. With a little dash momentum, it reaches about 75% screen distance, making it a large advancing attack in neutral to avoid low pokes, becoming all the more potent with Tension to Roman Cancel to continue pressure and convert into large corner carry and potentially wall break.

The air version can be used to alter Ramlethal's air trajectory, allowing her to bait and punish anti-air attacks including 6P attacks. Unfortunately it cannot confirm into any attack, making it relatively low reward. While generally safe on block, its slow startup makes it very open large preemptive anti-airs like 2H attacks if the opponent has not whiffed an attack already.

  • Air version knocks down on hit, while ground version is forced crouching on hit, but sadly does not link into any button.
  • At close range, ground version can whiff a standing opponent and sideswitch, but the move will whiff.

Also referred to as Rock by the community.

Creates an earth-shattering crack in the ground, to hit from a very far distance. The move does not track the opponent but cannot appear any further than the corner, leading to a pseudo-tracking effect when used near the edge of the screen, allowing it to be another very strong tool in Ramlethal's already formidable corner pressure. It is very slow to start up, but is advantageous on block with an extremely large vacuum effect. When it hits, it launches the opponent back towards Ramlethal for a combo. The opponent can jump out of rock in blockstrings but most characters cannot punish it without a hard read.

Ondo is considered a projectile, and as such will prioritize clashing with other projectiles even when the animation suggests it should hit the opponent (i.e. if Ondo appears directly under Sol during the early active frames of Gun FlameGGST Sol Badguy 236P.pngGuardAllStartup18RecoveryTotal 54Advantage-10 the two moves will clash and Sol will be unharmed) and can be reflected with F.D.B.GGST Potemkin FDB.pngGuardAllStartup18~36Recovery19Advantage-6

Referred to as Sword Toss by the community.

Primary corner combo filler and the backbone of corner pressure, when used in the corner the sword will explode after a short moment, giving automatic combos on hit and reset pressure when blocked.

When the H version is blocked in the corner at close-range, such as after c.S, Ramlethal can frametrap into her 5K or 2K, and will have time to perform a Tick Throw A throw done after attacks, very soon after if not exactly when throw invulnerability expires on the opponent. A Tick Throw take advantage of that the opponent naturally expect a Frame Trap coming, making it very hard to react to or escape from.. Ramlethal can also safely bait invincible reversals, and if the opponent attempts to escape they must either jump out or run significantly far forward. If the opponent does not move, the follow-up explosion will leave her extremely advantaged and able to run back to point-blank to loop the pessure, keeping the risk low and the reward high.

The S version and its explosion will always whiff on crouching opponents. However, it can be used after the H version to force an opponent back into the corner if they attempt to jump or dash out of the explosion, while maintaining a safe distance, further extending Ramlethal's safe corner pressure.

Both versions double as some of the most powerful projectiles in the game, defeating almost any non-Overdrive projectile on clash, with enormous corner carry on hit, and is extremely advantaged on block. However, outside of the corner, the opportunity cost of spending either sword is usually so high the move becomes self-detrimental, and is only used in some rare scenarios.

  • Launches the corresponding sword when used. The sword will be unequipped until it is picked up, affecting many of Ramlethal's moves. It can be picked back up, or will gradually return to Ramlethal after 6 seconds.
  • If the sword projectile hits the wall, it will stick into the wall and explode after a short delay, placing onto the ground after the explosion.
  • Attempting to launch a sword that has already been launched will result in a whiff animation.
  • If Ramlethal is hit after launching a sword, the sword will immediately be placed into the ground at its current location.
  • The S version staggers on hit, while the H version launches backwards.

Strongest meterless wallbreak for its huge damage, and a ginormous attack for catching an opponent off-guard from afar, but is extremely risky if it fails.

Reaching over 80% of the screen, Sabrobato is almost impossible to whiff. Combined with its barely-reactable speed makes it a sudden threat for an opponent that may be using projectiles at range or backdashing away for distance. Unfortunately, it is incredibly bad if blocked, and unlike similar styles of attack, it isn't very fast and can be blocked standing, making it a weak neutral tool. It is best used with 50% Tension for an RRC, to safely confirm into pressure on block, and combo on hit.

The single highest damage combo ender in the game, scaling incredibly well no matter how weak the combo started.

In contrast to Mortobato, Calvados is much higher damage, especially in long combos. As a trade-off, its huge number of hits means the opponent will recieve as much as a third of their Burst gauge back. This means it can have implications on future rounds if Mortobato was already a lethal strike, and is much better if the opponent has maintained their Burst gauge.

In pressure, Calvados is a niche pressure reset, similar to a Roman Cancel, but grants both swords back, deals chip damage, and guard crushes the opponent. Unfortunately, it cannot be used from Ramlethal's unsafe attacks like Erarlumo 3GGST Ramlethal Valentine Erarlumo 3.pngGuardAllStartup11Recovery38Advantage-25, SabrobatoGGST Ramlethal Valentine Sabrubato.pngGuardAllStartup19Recovery42Advantage-27 [-27] {-32}, DauroGGST Ramlethal Valentine Dauro.pngGuardAllStartup11Recovery26Advantage-10, or Dust AttackGGST Ramlethal Valentine 5D.pngGuardHighStartup20Recovery27Advantage-15, rendering it redundant unless the swords are mismanaged. It is also unsafe if too close to the opponent, and far more expensive than fast-cancelled Roman Cancels, while offering similar pressure.

While Calvados deals heavy chip damage, it is comparatively cheap to FD block the entire attack. Furthermore, an opponent can mash Instant Blocks to mitigate some damage, gain Tension, and generate Tension Pulse (functionally giving them even more Tension). In neutral it is also very easy to jump, punishing Ramlethal from considerable distance and mitigating almost the entire attack from afar.

While this move has plenty of negatives, it is useful if you're attacking from afar with BajonetoGGST Ramlethal Valentine Bajoneto H.pngGuardAllStartup20RecoveryTotal 43Advantage+3, since it will refresh your swords. Additionally, since the explosions cause launch on hit, you can attack with Calvados while they are falling. If you Roman Cancel the move after the lasers start, the lasers will remain with you being free to attack. Even if this isn't the best way to use 100% meter it is still pretty fun if you pull it off right, and can also deal massive damage while inflicting suffering upon the opponent for their mistake of forgetting the explosion.

  • Returns both swords to Ramlethal immediately.
  • Deals Guard Crush on block.
  • On Wall Break results in a Hard Knockdown for +36 frame advantage.
  • Minimum total damage of 54 on hit, and 60 chip damage on block

Ramlethal's invincible reversal, with enormous vertical and horizontal range, good damage, and fast startup. Simple but effective.

Mortobato can also be used in combos as wallbreak ender, picking up from more strings than Calvados and avoids granting the enemy their Burst gauge. The okizeme after a standard hit depends greatly on distance, as you can only hit c.S Meaty Hitting an opponent to cover the moment as they lose invincibility. The most common one is performing an attack early on okizeme to gain frame advantage and bait reversals. if Mortobato hits at close range, or on Counter Hit.

  • [ ] refers to one sword and { } is empty handed. Hitbox and damage changes depending on what swords are equipped.
  • Launches into a hard knockdown on hit.
  • On Wall Break results in a Hard Knockdown for +36 frame advantage.
