Overview

Overview

Not satisfied with merely fighting with a Persona, Labrys elects to drag a gigantic axe into the ring to cleave her opponents in two with only one swing. Labrys operates as a damage-dealing machine, but she doesn't start the match at her full power. Instead, she has a unique mechanic where her axe gets charged the more hits she lands with her axe, regardless if they're hit or blocked. The goal? Get to Red Axe, where nearly every single tool she has becomes a Fatal Counter, and a single misstep from the opponent will spell their doom. Best of all, the axe level carries over across rounds, so if she closes one round in Red Axe, the next can be over in the blink of an eye.

Sporting massive reach with the majority of her normals, Labrys can be a menace in neutral with or without a Persona. In the air, her j.BP4Arena Labrys jB.pngGuard:

Startup:

alone can make dealing with her extremely difficult, and on the ground she has numerous options to counter zoning attempts and put up walls to stop careless approaches.

Reverse the situation, however, and Labrys reverts from a combat robot to a schoolgirl. Outside of her reliance on snowballing, Labrys' defensive options are very poor—with slow jabs, a terrible Furious Action, and no decent reversal options without her Awakening Super. On the other end, her pressure is more about making the opponent block to build up Axe Gauge rather than directly opening them up. She doesn't have many strong mixup options outside of her Chain Knuckle, and even then will likely need meter to turn her mixups into any meaningful damage.

While she can be quite make-or-break, Labrys is one of few characters who can annihilate any unfortunate soul off of a jab. And she talks funny, so can you really say no to that?
Playstyle
Labrys charges in and swings her axe at any problem she faces, powering up her next attacks all the while.
Pros Cons
  • TOD Machine: In Red Axe, Labrys can kill off of any well-placed hit. Axe levels also carry over between rounds to keep the snowballing going, allowing her to end some games the moment she wins the second roundstart scramble.
  • Gigantic Axe: And gigantic range. All of her normals sport excellent reach and hitstun, and j.B might be worth an entire pro by itself. Not very reliant on her Persona thanks to this.
  • Assembly Not Required: Even without Red Axe, Labrys deals a hefty amount of damage, sports great corner carry and has decent okizeme setups. She's in no hurry for mix-ups as she builds axe level on block as well, and her normals start dealing chip damage once she's in Red Axe.
  • Slow: Fastest button clocks in at 7F, with the rest carrying hefty startup, and unimpressive movement speed. Struggles against zoning.
  • Mids Dispenser: Few natural mixup options. Moreover, she cannot gatling her crouching normals into her standing normals, along with her normal mode having an unsafe autocombo. Proper pressure requires patience.
  • Short Battery Life: Constantly wants meter to build axe level, create a mixup, confirm off of said mixup, or escape from pressure.
  • #1 Guard Point Fangirl: Labrys' Furious Action is atrocious as a reversal, with ridiculous startup and guardpoint making it highly reactable. Her only solid defensive option is her "Gear" super, which requires Awakening.

Axe Levels

Labrys has a special axe icon above her SP Gauge that levels up after using attacks that utilize Labrys' massive axe (even on block or whiff). It will slowly level down over time you don't attack with the axe, and decreases even more when Labrys is hit. The levels are broken down into the following colors with 1 being the lowest, 5 being the highest:

  • No Color (Gray) > Blue > Green > Yellow > Red
  • The higher the level of the Axe Gauge is, the more damage her axe attacks do.
    • Lv 1: 60%, Lv 2: 80%, Lv 3: 100%, Lv 4: 110%, Lv 5: 120%
    • Note her supers follows a unique formula, and will be mentioned in those sections.

At red axe level, she gains the following special properties in addition to extra damage:

  • Added Hitstun for axe attacks
  • All Counter Hits by attacks that increase the Axe Gauge become Fatal Counters
  • Added chip damage with axe attacks

Under Red Axe, Labrys also does significant chip damage with her axe normals and Skills, such as Guillotine Axe. See her frame data for exact values, as her moves scale slightly differently.

P4Arena axeIcon.png
Management
  • At the start of each match, the axe gauge starts at Level 3 (Green) and always drifts to this level.
    • At Level 4 (Yellow) and Level 5 (Red), the axe level will steadily decrease down to Green over time.
    • If Labrys sinks to Level 1 (Grey) or Level 2 (Blue), it will slowly drift up to Green without Labrys doing anything.
  • The higher Labrys' axe level, the quicker the gauge decreases. In Yellow, it will take 7 seconds to hit Green, but only 4 in Red.
  • Labrys' axe level does not decrease while she is in blockstun.
  • Using certain special moves, such as Guillotine Axe, will build the gauge faster than normal moves.
  • Axe level will carry over to all subsequent rounds.

Knowing this, don't focus too much on reaching red axe status, instead just look for ways to get in on your opponent first and know your proper BnB's after getting that first hit in. After that first hit happens you'll usually be at least at yellow axe status, with the followup okizeme pushing you up to red axe. At this point, it's merely keeping up that momentum and finishing the job with Beast. If your opponent blocks your mix up and pushes you back, don't fret about the axe level declining as it can be built back up just as fast.

5A

Labrys' jab. Good reach and hitstun, a solid poke that's good both against grounded and airborne opponents. However, it's slow, unsafe and doesn't chain into 2A, which makes it worse overall for pressure. Still useful though, as the range will let you get away with some cheeky pressure resets that most characters would have to dash in for.


5AA

Forward moving with good reach, simple and it gets the job done without anything fancy. Not jump cancellable, which can make dealing with bursts very annoying.


5AAA

Excellent corner carry both on hit and block, while keeping Labrys close to her opponent. Easy to confirm into and hits reliably after any awkward confirm. Hideously unsafe on block, so you should always cancel this.

Still useful though, as the range will let you get away with some cheeky pressure resets that most characters would have to dash in for.


5AA

Moves forward with good reach and launches the opponent up on hit. Depending on who you are, this is either nice or annoying to have compared to normal Labrys. It's much safer on block, but doesn't chain into any B normals, which heavily restricts future pressure. Also not jump cancellable, again, but you're a Shadow this time around so fighting bursts isn't as hard.


5AAA

Launches on hit. Simple to confirm off of and has some interesting combos, but sacrifices the corner carry from the normal version along with heavy startup.

160 Low 7 2 14 -1 Foot -

Nice and simple crouching jab, chains into itself up to three times. Remarkably safe, 2A is good for stagger pressure and tick throws, and despite its slow startup can be used to mash out of pressure. However, it does NOT chain into 5A, which poses a choice between using either normal; do you go for the damage and easy confirm of 5A or the better pressure and safety of 2A?

Is not counted as an axe normal. No extra hitstun or axe level for you.

5[B] 1500 Unblockable 120 2 25 - Body -

Although it has a slow startup, 5B is a good ground poke when spaced well. In pressure, 5B has several follow up options such as dash and hop cancels, as well as chaining into other moves such as 2C, Sweep or Chain Knuckle that make it very useful for varying your pressure.

  • Dash cancel is -3 on block
  • Backdash cancel is -2 on block

Half Charge

Mostly useful for combos, but still somewhat useful elsewhere. Launches with sliding knockback on hit, comboing into chain knuckle midscreen and gives Labrys lots of time to do other things in the corner. It's also sometimes good to use in a blockstring, followed by the forward dash cancel to take advantage of being +4 and reset pressure.

  • Dash Cancel is +4 on block
  • Backdash cancel is +5 on block

Full Charge

It's unblockable, and it's also worthless! Extremely slow with a noticeable superflash, glow effect and an unblockable warning. Absolutely nobody will get hit by this if their controller is plugged in and knows Labrys can do this. Also has terrible starting proration.

Labrys has multiple charged unblockable moves and none of them are helpful for her. Setting them up is highly situational, very costly, beaten by DPs or guard cancels while only giving subpar reward. Due to their lack of practical applications, they won't be given much attention on the page beyond ridicule.

2[B] 1200 Unblockable 122 4 34 - Body 9~125 Head

A great anti-air due to its wide hitbox, disjointed and hitting all around Labrys. A bit slow to head invincibility which makes it less useful for catching jump-ins for pressure, but it gets the job more than done anywhere else. Jump and dash cancellable on connect, but due to Labrys' lack of options afterwards most players will fully expect a cancel, so choose your options wisely.

  • Dash cancel is -3 on block

Half Charge

Increases the damage and gives a wallbounce if your opponent reaches the corner. Very useful as delaying the move retains invincibility, letting Labrys catch opponents attempting to stall their momentum for a brutal punish. The reward is pretty great, especially on counterhit, which can make this move tempting to use as a silly frametrap.

  • Dash cancel is +1 on block

Full Charge

Unblockable, and carries all of the problems as the fully charged 5B. Maybe your grandma will get hit by a move that has two full seconds of startup and no armor. Don't bother.

300 High 9 2 6 - Head -

9F startup air "kick" with leg nubs. An underrated move for many reasons: not an axe move, not the greatest hitbox, competes with j.B. Sounds like this normal is consigned to death, but it's nonetheless important. Useful in the air-to-air wars against opponents who are using their own jabs to attempt to catch you using j.B and confirming off of counterhits quickly. Can also be used in some fuzzy setups, and doesn't have much recovery.

600 High 15 4 14 - Head -

Incredible normal that hits all around Labrys in a "J" motion, covering tons of angles. Great for both jump ins and air-to-airs. The reach is so ridiculous, you can use it as a cross-up without having to turn around (but may find it hard to convert off if you used a forward airdash). Like most jump attacks, predictable j.Bs do lose to 2B Anti-Airs but so long as you aren't being predictable, you'll find this normal to be one of your most valuable tools.

j.BB 800 All 13 6 22 - Head -

Wallbouncing axe swing. Has slightly better horizontal range than j.B, but worse vertical range and very slow startup when used as j.2B. Fortunately, it's incredible in combos especially with Red Axe, acting as both corner carry and a high hitstun extension. Keep note of the high SMP, however j.BB and j.2B are fortunately considered different moves, so it's not too hard to work around.

j.BB adds a bit of landing recovery to Labrys, which is especially detrimental if it whiffs. j.2B does NOT add the landing recovery.

Good range sweep that slides Labrys forward, usually used to end combos at lower axe levels so that you can go for Weaver Arts: Sword oki and keep building your momentum/axe gauge level, but can also be good for beating pokes because of the chest invuln. Not too bad in corner combos when backed behind 5D either.

Very large, multi-hitting and drags opponents towards Labrys. A good ground poke if you can get it out, and can also be used in pressure to bring the opponent near you or even catch some opponents attempting to roll away. Still chains into Sweep, or 2C to make yourself plus. On a grounded hit, goes into 2C for excellent damage. Quite slow, especially on whiff, so don't throw it out with reckless abandon.

Although 2C has a gigantic hitbox, it's most commonly seen in pressure and combos. For the latter use, 2C has very high hitstun and launches opponents into the air for simple followups, which even include Labrys' charged Furious Action to turn the combo into a Fatal Counter. Followups become more freeform in the corner, notably allowing Labrys to whiff the first hit of Guillotine Axe for extreme damage on the second.

2C is dash cancellable and becomes +1 on block when done so, allowing pressure resets. However, she'll lose to characters mashing 5f normals, and also has a hard time catching people jumping before and after the move connects. It's not as strong as you'd might want, but it's not bad either.

j.C halts Labrys' air momentum while the hitbox completely surrounds her, and vacuums opponents in on hit or block. Sadly, it carries extreme recovery making it very easy to punish on whiff and block, damning it to the combo food bin. There are some additional uses for it in certain matchups or for stalling air momentum, Labrys resumes her previous momentum once the move recovers and gives it leverage as a creative movement option. Can also be used for some crossups, but without meter this is a terrible idea which can end up with Labrys being punished on hit.

Ultimately, this is most commonly going to be seen used to drag opponents in for a j.214B combo ender.

Good mixup tool when combined with 2A stagger pressure to do tick throws. As Labrys' fastest ground action, it can be a good defensive option in some instances where her other normals would otherwise be too slow.

In general, you can OMC it to convert it into a full combo with 5A, or just go straight into Beast super for axe meter and damage. On CH with Red Axe, you can convert it into a combo with 5A.

Guardpoint reversal that carries heavy startup. Every time Labrys is hit, hitstop is generated and adds to Labrys' startup. Has a decent hitbox, significant pushback, and forward movement.

Congratulations, you found the pain and suffering behind everyone playing Labrys. It's easy for opponents to react to the startup and cancel whatever they're doing into a DP or worse to counter her, and the atrocious startup does it no favors anywhere else. Needless to say, it's an extremely poor reversal, and ends up defining many matchups against characters who can easily exploit Labrys' lacking defensive options.

Sometimes you'll be forced to use it any way, and it can still work if relied on very sparsely, preferably when opponents aren't mashing 2A on your wakeup to fish it out. The forward movement also still lets Labrys use it to counter supers with slower startup, but if she's too slow and starts getting hit then she'll likely be locked in place for an obvious punish.

While simply having a bad DP might not sound so awful, P4AU is very much balanced around the idea of every character having a reversal—having a terrible one is going to result in some miserable pressure situations.


Half Charge

Now this is where things look a bit better. Always inflicts Counter Hit and wallbounces, even if used as a combo part. This property lets Labrys convert convert her combo of choice into a Fatal during Red Axe, such as 5C > 2C > B+D.


Full Charge

Obligatory Labrys fully charged unblockable. For people who thought this move wasn't bad enough. Awful starter and the moment anyone sees Labrys charging her Furious Action (or likely using it at all) they're probably going to roll behind her any way, so it's a great way to lose the round. Will catch one person who decided to sit there and block for a full two seconds in response to your DP out of a million.

Labrys' "projectile" meant to remind you that she is, in fact, a robot. Doubles as a tool to control space on the ground and a pressure tool.

Both versions cover a good amount of distance, with the A version going 2/3rds of the screen and the B/SB versions going just short of fullscreen. The punch ignores projectiles, while SB also has Labrys invincible to them entirely, and is also considered a chest attribute strike instead of a real projectile (meaning sweeps will beat it). Be warned that there's some nasty recovery on whiff, so don't use it too often.

The real kicker is Winch Dash, done by pressing/holding 6 after Chain Knuckle connects with the opponent. This turns the move from a mere poke to Labrys' mainstay pressure option.

Can Fatal Counter, which goes great with Winch Dash.

Winch Dash is Chain Knuckle's claim to fame. Lunges Labrys quickly towards the opponent, and cancels into Chain Knuckle Extra Attack followups.

Extremely useful for pressure, mixup, combos, you name it, Winch Dash gives it. Confirms off of a fatal counter chain knuckle, continuing combos, use the followups for whatever she wants, sky's the limit. Labrys recovers quickly after the dash, which also allows for throw mixups and even jumps.

Things get even nastier when you incorporate Brake, done by pressing 4 at any point during the dash, which lets you bait any reversal options or just freak people out for some added psychic damage. Brake can also be cancelled into other special moves besides Chain Knuckle (e.g. 214A) or hops at any point, only furthering its usefulness.

Keep in mind that the strength of Winch Dash being locked behind Chain Knuckle (which has 20f startup at minimum) can result in Labrys' pressure becoming predictable and exploitable if not used cautiously. Use this as one of many options in your pressure instead of rushing in for mixups every time.

A Followup

Hits overhead, and is generally the most common Winch Dash followup. Resembles the final hit of her autocombo, and is not a true blockstring from Chain Knuckle/Winch Dash at close range, so wary opponents will look to DP it. This, however, just lets you incorporate Winch Dash Brake to mess with people, or use the B followup instead.

On hit, convert into 214A immediately for a knockdown. Really you should be doing this always thanks to how unsafe it is. With Red Axe, you can combo into SB Axe for catastrophic damage.


B Followup

Hits low. Not special cancellable, not safe, rarely hits airborne opponents. Rather unexciting, but add meter to the mix and suddenly you have an obnoxious to block mixup combined with the A version. If you OMC and they block, you restart your pressure, while if they don't then you get a combo afterwards.


SB Followup

Hits mid, but is fast and 0 on block for quick damage in a pinch while granting some safety. That said, 0 on block for Labrys sucks since her normals are slow and the spacing after this tends to not be ideal. Generally not a great use of meter, especially if you have Red Axe since you could've just done A into SB Axe instead, but sometimes it can pay out.

Interestingly, this can cross opponents up on hit and block if done close enough, but don't try to use this as a mixup because your opponent will always be able to autoguard it.

Guillotine Axe is Labrys' basic combo and blockstring ender, often referred to as just "Axe." Safe and pushes the opponent back far, which can make it difficult to punish even on IB.

In all versions, the first hit is a mid while the second is an overhead. The second hit also deals considerably higher damage if the first hit misses.

Used for some creative metered mixup options or in 22X oki. Whiffing the first hit will give Labrys a quicker overhead that's trickier to see than her AOA, and can be confirmed with meter or more ideally with 22X backing her up meterlessly. However, if the first hit is blocked, you can exploit the knowledge that the second hit is a high and OMC into 2A for a simplistic yet disgustingly effective mixup option.

Can also be used in some fuzzy overhead setups against some characters, but these are only worth it if Labrys is loaded on resources.


214A

Mostly used to end combos on the ground, ending strings, and for the aforementioned mixups. Does a good amount of damage and gives the axe gauge a nice boost.


214B

Longer startup but does more damage, and is 0 on block. Disgustingly high damage combo tool seen in Labrys' many death combos, done by launching the opponent and then whiffing the first hit so the opponent gets hit only by the second. If the opponent is high enough to get hit by the late active frames, it's even possible for Labrys to link after this to continue the combo.

0 on block is much less awesome than it sounds for Labrys due to her slow normals, but the pushback works very favorably with 5A, so you can use it as a pressure reset any way.


SB Version

Incredible EX move and where a lot of Labrys' meter goes towards. Special cancelable and causes a small ground bounce. Key move in a ton of combos, such as cancelling into 22A/236C to trap opponent mid-combo and lead to corner-carry.

Air combo ender with occasional use as an anti-anti-air or divebomb. Creates a small shockwave slightly after Labrys hits the ground that launches opponents very slightly into the air and improves her frame advantage—Labrys is typically punishable if it misses.

Good for ending combos due to its ability to bring the opponent back down to the ground for oki or to be comboed into a Beast super for damage. Labrys can actually super cancel before the shockwave comes out since she's already considered grounded, which is absolutely awful since the shockwave is important for any kind of followup, so remember to delay your super input just a tad.

If Labrys travels for a bit without hitting anything, the shockwave becomes significantly larger and will launch the opponent into the air on hit for a free combo. The easiest way to get this version is to superjump or double jump and use Guillotine Aerial at the apex.


j.214A

The quickest and arguably least helpful of the bunch, most frequently seen as an "I messed up my combo" move. Can be used to safely end any combo without relying on corner or Persona moves, so in situations where spacing is awkward, scaling is too high or Labrys is Persona Broken, this gets the job done.

Its speed makes it tempting to use as a divebomb, but it's both unsafe on block and the recovery makes any combo or oki you'd get afterwards less than stellar.


j.214B

Your main air combo ender. On the slower end, but Labrys has high enough hitstun on most of her attacks keeping this from being a problem. Most commonly seen following j.C, but sometimes just follows up j.2B in highly scaled corner routes.


SB Version

Effectively the same as the A version, but mysteriously invincible and plus on block as long as the shockwave hits. Gets people off of Labrys in the air while doubling as a quick divebomb to start turns. Throwing this puppy out in a "JUST DO IT" fashion can work wonders against certain characters.

The armor will still lose to Air Unblockables, but the stall helps in baiting anti-airs any way.

Weaver's Art: Sword, also called "Spike" or "Strings", is Labrys' commonly used oki tool at lower axe levels from sweep combo enders. B version is optimal after sweep, while A version will be good in corner.

While it's not a safejump, and none of them are true meaties, it grants Labrys many mixups and she still has the choice of blocking or backdashing to bait reversals. Keen opponents will attempt to exploit the lack of advantage and attempt numerous escape options, so build respect with 5A. Once the opponent respects it, Labrys has access to a ton of layered mixup options, or just a dash-up jab.

Nearly all of these give a full combo on hit if used after Spike. Not safe to reversal actions like DPs, backdashes and rolls—this is not a free 50/50, and you're not using HamaonP4Arena Naoto Hamaon.pngGuard:

.

  • Dashing in and grabbing before the spike hits. This is the only one that does not give a combo (without meter).
  • 2A or Sweep for low options to catch opponents expecting overheads.
  • Whiff 214A for a sneaky overhead, or just use AOA once they start looking for Labrys spinning around.
  • Airdashing over for a crossup

SB automatically tracks opponent's location. Great for counterzoning or catching people flailing around to make your approaches annoying. Do note they can just run past it if they remain on the ground, but their approach will at least be a bit more linear.

Orb is a prime neutral tool for dealing with characters who enjoy buzzing over Labrys' head to exploit her slow 2B, or just to make it harder to keep running away from her.

As a projectile on its own, it's not half bad. The orb is a bit slow, but it destroys other projectiles, and there's no limit to how many Labrys can have out. On hit, the opponent is trapped in place for a bit similar to 22X, and is trapped for even longer if the orb counterhits.

Dash cancellable very early into startup, which alleviates the risk in using the move a bit. Can also be used as a silly pressure reset this way, as the animation combined with the quick dash cancel can catch people off-guard.


236C

Travels at air dash height and weaves around. Good for denying the air to the opponent with little risk to yourself after it's out, or just making it harder for people to maneuver around j.B.


236D

Falls to the ground and goes across the screen at ground level. It takes a while for the orb to fall to ground level before it starts traveling, but it's good at covering an approach. If you can manage to keep the opponent blocking long enough, it can give Labrys a pressure reset later on, so it sees use in some safejump setups or in the aforementioned silly dash-in reset.

One of the best uses for this is as actually as a throw mixup in pressure. Using 236D while very close to the opponent, then grabbing them without dashing will cause the orb to hit the opponent and give Labrys a combo after her grab. It's a bit slow and telegraphed however.


SB Version

Same as the D version but it falls to the ground much quicker, making it easier to use for things you'd use the D version for. This includes the grab mixup, which is quicker, nastier, and more lenient with spacing.

Beast is a staple of Labrys' gameplan, a high damage super with many uses. Typically seen as a combo ender for Labrys, but can also act as a (still poor) reversal or even a combo extender in certain situations.


236236C

The investment. Very quick, damaging, and simple. A very effective combo ender that works at nearly any hitstun level, and more importantly builds axe level, which makes it great to throw out when you want to leave someone deep in Awakening or ending rounds while still building/retaining Red Axe.


236236D

The embezzlement. Cashes out on the axe gauge, boosting the damage output of the SP Skill proportional to your current axe level. Adds a huge amount of damage if Labrys is in Red Axe, incredible for closing out rounds especially before opponents reach Awakening, and is a very common ender in Labrys' many death combos. The startup is pretty slow, but it still reliably combos after j.214B.

On the first round, it may not be worth losing your axe level going into the second. Depending on how confident you are on landing that potential final hit, using the C version to kill or leave your opponent one hit away from the grave will benefit Labrys a lot more since she'll be carrying Red Axe over to the next. Levy the options carefully.


SB Version

The billionaire's investment. It's a steep price to pay for 75 meter, but it's very worth it. Hits as many times as the D version while building axe level on every hit, oftentimes pushing Labrys instantly up two whole levels for a Green Axe game-changer. As a generous bonus, it also comes out just as fast as the C version while traveling very far and leaves the opponent in a ton of untech for oki setups.

One of Persona's many "make me plus" projectile supers. Covers a good amount of ground space and is + on block, making it good for shifting momentum. Although the move itself only hits on the ground, it can be difficult for airborne opponents to escape falling into the gears if they lack good positioning or have used up their air movement options. That said, it can be rolled midscreen pretty easily.

Because of the shortcomings of Labrys' furious action and Brutal Impact, Weaver's Art: Breaking Wheel is her best reversal. This can act as a major deciding factor between whether to play Normal Labrys or S-Labrys, as Labrys only gets this in Awakening but S-Labrys has this available as long as she has the meter for it.

All versions stay even if you hit Labrys, so if you try to mash something fullscreen you're probably going to get hit.


214214C

The gears appear in front of Labrys. This is the version usually used for reversals or some fringe oki setups.


214214D

The gears appear at about 2/3rds of the screen away from Labrys. Can be good for catching people doing stuff or locking them down long enough to close the distance on them.


SB Version

Spawns eight wheels instead of five, appearing in front of Labrys and expanding out to almost fullscreen distance. Very plus on block, but also incredibly expensive on an already meter hungry character, so it's generally not worth it.

Can also be used in some unblockable "setups" (memesGuard Cancels completely defeat these setups, so if they have meter, it's not worth it.), or comboing into Brutal Impact as S-Labrys.

Brutal Impact is Labrys' unblockable super, dealing ridiculously high damage and supposedly being usable in setups.

Keyword is "supposedly", as no matter how hard you try, your opponent can always just DP to escape it. Put simply, Brutal Impact is one of the worst supers in the game. It's only available to Labrys in Awakening, has ludicrous startup, is massively telegraphed, and is very easily avoided. Labrys has guardpoint against everything (even throws) during the startup, which may make you want to use it as a reversal, and it fortunately does come out faster if Labrys is hit. But joke's on you, it's still so slow that your opponent can just jump over Labrys and make her cry. And nobody likes watching robot girls cry.

Terrible move, don't use any version ever.


A Version

The fastest and least bad one. Still unusable against any opponent, except if you're S-Labrys.

Tempting to use in unblockable setups such as 214214C -> OMC -> 214214A, but [5B] will run you less meter while doing equal-if-not-more damage, completely invalidating the one thing this move might've been good for on Normal Labrys. As a potentially obvious sidenote, if your "unblockable setup" is not a true blockstring then don't even bother, everyone in this game has a DP and they won't be afraid to show it to you.

S-Labrys can use it in Shadow Frenzy combos for damage almost rivaling D Beast, except it doesn't cost your axe level. This may be knocking off the real deal, but at least it gives this move something in terms of use.


B Version

Actually a super good move. Just kidding it's even worse than the A version. Amazingly high startup ensure you're never going to hit anyone with this in your wildest dreams, unless they have no idea what the move is and figured they'd stand still and try to block the unblockable.

Deals more damage than the A version, but who cares?


SB Version

Since you insist on spending 75 meter to lose the round, you'll be glad to hear that Labrys at least is able to oneshot every character in the game if she's in Red Axe while using this version. Even against Awakening, it does 7,500 damage. As a result, this version has slightly more use than the other two, and that is to flex your ability to read DPs in the most disrespectful way imaginable, and utterly embarrassing yourself if you read incorrectly. Throw this in the garbage unless you're some sicko who actually does enjoy watching robot girls cry.

Throw-type moves will have their ranges listed instead, and other cases will be explicitly noted.
StartupNumber of frames for this move to reach the first active frame (includes the first active frame). ActiveNumber of active frames in this attack. Values in () are for gaps between hits of an attack. RecoveryNumber of frames this move is in a recovery state before returning to neutral. Frame AdvThe difference between the attacker's recovery and the period that the opponent is in blockstun. This frame advantage value is based off the fact that the very first active frame touches the opponent. AttributeSome attacks are invulnerable to attacks with specific attributes. This notes what attributes each attack possesses.
H - Head
B - Body
C - Chest
F - Foot
P - Projectile. Independent Projectiles will have their Durability level listed. For example a projectile that his Durability level 2 will show P2
T - Throw
Inv.Attribute and Hitbox Invincibility information that will be notated via abbreviation or other indicators.
Guard - Move autoguards against the attacks instead of making them whiff.
Strike - Invulnerable to all attributes except for Throws, and SP Skills.
Low Profile - Character's hurtbox shrinks to go under many attacks.
Persona - Only the Persona carries this invulnerability.

Fullscreen instant kill. Costs 100 SP, reaches fullscreen, invincible until recovery, very standard IK stuff.

Labrys summons Ariadne to shoot an arrow across the screen, and if successful, proceeds to trap the opponent, throws her axe at them, and with an extended chain arm, barrages the opponent with axe strikes, cultivating in dropping the axe on top of them. This IK at least has the benefit of hitting full screen. However, it still suffers from a long reactable startup and the ability to be blocked, all while requiring 100 SP, making it hardly worth it to use. Could potentially be used to counter certain supers on super flash like Adachi's Atom Smasher or Akihiko's Maziodyne, but practical instances for this IK are few and far between.
