Information from these resources will be transcribed here in due time, or you could possibly help transcribe it yourself.

Overview

Shadow Labrys, commonly referred to as "Shabrys", is a puppet character who stands out among the rest of the cast. Unlike other Persona wielders, she has her Persona Asterius (colloquially referred to as Bull) out on the field at all times. She works together with Asterius to create very strong neutral sequences, suffocating pressure and an amazing knockdown game.

With Asterius being out at all times, Shadow Labrys has to be highly aware of its position on the screen. Improper usage of her Persona can lead to it being broken, making Shadow Labrys significantly weaker as a character. She also has the lowest health in the game, so making mistakes with her is considerably more detrimental than with the rest of the cast. Properly utilizing 5D/2D/j.D to help Asterius guard is essential to keeping him on the field for as long as possible.

If you can get around this burden and come to grips with the complex control scheme that Shabrys has, then you open the door to an excellent neutral game. Asterius is a dominating force on the battlefield, blasting his way across the screen with moves like Hammer UppercutP4Arena ShLabrys 2C.pngGuard:

. Shabrys has access to a number of great normals as well, with j.B being just as good as her normal counterpart.

If you can convert and get a hard knockdown, then things become extremely scary for your opponent, as you can run mixups and blender them into oblivion. Cooperating with Asterius gives Shabrys a number of difficult-to-block setups, including left/right, high/low, tick throws, and even unblockables. While Shabrys is pretty fragile, getting her into Awakening unlocks TitanomachiaP4AU ShLabrys Titanomachia1.pngGuard:

, a potentially game-winning super that allows her to either instantly turn the tides in her favor or push the round to a conclusion.

Shadow Labrys does have a high skill floor, in that the player must be able to manage Asterius at all times to avoid losing cards and controlling its position for combos. In return, she rewards players who are willing to master her unconventional playstyle with some of the strongest offensive options in the game.
Playstyle
Shadow Labrys is a puppet character who uses her Persona to create overwhelming pressure and okizeme.
Pros Cons
  • Bull Neutral: On top already having large axe normals to poke with, Shadow Labrys can use the massive range on Asterius' moves to cover her in neutral.
  • Devastating Mixups: When cooperating with Asterius, Shabrys has access to Eldrich-tier high/low, left/right mixups and strong okizeme. She can even unblockable opponents in the right situation with her Biteloops.
  • Massive Damage: Shadow Labrys can consistently deal around 3k meterless from her combos, which includes combos that start with her 5A. Great corner carry and meter gain make her hits especially rewarding and her high damageP4Arena ShLabrys ChallengeAuthority.pngGuard:

  • Titanomachia: The best super in the game, hands down. If the only counterplay for the opponent is to corner themselves so at least they can't get crossed up, you know this is seriously messed up. If you can get to Awakening, you can Titanomachia and immediately turn the tides of the match or secure your win.
  • Status Ailments: Shadow Labrys is also able to inflict Poison, Silence, and Fear on top of everything else she can do.
  • Meter Efficient: With great meter gain from her combos, Shadow Labrys is free to spend her meter how she pleases. Just about every metered option has its uses, but the ability to end most of her combos with hard knockdown from SB Guillotine AxeP4Arena ShLabrys GuillotineAxe.pngGuard:

    lets her set up into a 50/50.
  • Persona is God: Shadow Labrys is nothing without her Persona. However, this is not as big an issue as it sounds. She has a high number of Persona cards and Asterius has autoguard against attacks that deal 400 damage or less.
  • Cancelling off Asterius: With Asterius being out at all times, the opponent is able to hit it and freely cancel into jump or other normals and specials.
  • Fragile: Lowest health in the game, two hits can be all it takes to lose.
  • High Execution: With somewhat tricky combos, an unconventional control scheme for Asterius, and lots to keep in mind during a match, Shadow Labrys can be a bit difficult to grasp for beginners.
※ This con is mostly relevant to beginners and loses relevancy as the player increases their skills.

Asterius

Shadow Labrys has her persona Asterius out on the field at all times. Asterius swims through the ground behind Shadow Labrys and will try to keep as close to his user as possible.

  • If Shadow Labrys moves in any direction, Asterius will attempt to swim alongside her, eventually resetting his position directly behind his user.
  • If Shadow Labrys moves far enough away from him in a short period of time (such as by airdashing or running), Asterius will dive into the ground and reset his position behind her.
  • Asterius can block with the D buttons, which will keep him locked to a specific position until the button is let go.

Unlike most other Persona attacks, Asterius is fully independent from Shadow Labrys and can act independent of her. Many of Shadow Labrys's combos gain extensions through inputting 5C or 2C while pressing one of her own buttons.

At all times, Asterius has autoguard against moves with 400 or less base damage. If Shadow Labrys blocks, Asterius will stop performing any commands except SB skills and during Titanomachia. When preforming an SB skill, Asterius cannot be broken by normal attacks, only supers.

Shadow Labrys is also able to cancel all of Asterius's normal Persona attacks into specials and supers on hit or block, allowing Knuckle Train to be cancelled into Flame of Hades or Challenge Authority for one example. Persona moves can also be inputted while Shadow Labrys blocks, albeit with limited practical application as Asterius is often too slow to properly AbareAn attack during the opponent's pressure, intended to interrupt it..

Lastly, Asterius's attacks must be blocked relative to Shadow Labrys's position. If Asterius is performing 5C to your left while Shabrys is to your right, you must hold down-left in order to block his incoming attack.

5A
  • Jump cancelable on hit and block.
  • Does not gatling into itself or 2A.

Relatively quick axe swing with huge range for its speed. Gatlings to a plethora of normals and specials, although it does not cancel to 2A. Common combo and pressure starter. Can hit airborne opponents at certain spacings, giving it utility as an anti-air. At 7 frames, 5A is Shadow Labrys's fastest normal with relatively little whiff recovery for its speed and size. On air counterhit, can pick up a combo with B normals or by jump-cancelling into an air combo.


5AA
  • More horizontal range than 5A.

Lifts the opponent slightly off the ground. Useful for starting juggles in the corner and in pressure when spaced well, as it's significantly less negative on block than 5A.


5AAA
  • Launches the opponent on hit.
  • Hop-cancellable.

Has considerable horizontal and vertical range. Great mid-screen combo starter when hop-cancelled. 5AAA can also be cancelled into various specials and supers. Like all 5AAAs, Shabrys's builds 1/8th of the Burst gauge and ~13 meter on hit.

Completing the auto-combo adds Guillotine Axe A > Challenge Authority C.

  • Does not galting into itself or 5A.

A low-hitting poke with the butt of Shadow Labrys's axe. While a fast low, it has limited range. Along with 5A, 2A is Shabrys's fastest normal at 7f. Does not cancel into itself, but does cancel into 5B, and 2A > 5B > 2AB is Shabrys's staple low string. Frequently seen in pressure and mix-ups.

  • Slow startup, but fast recovery.

A big forward axe swing that's a strong poke and common combo tool. While the start-up is slow, the recovery is relatively fast, making it a great neutral and pressure tool when spaced correctly. While 5B is not a move you want to be caught whiffing next to an opponent, threatening with 5B is part of Shabrys's neutral, as its range forces some opponents to stay at bay. Unlike many other 5Bs, Shadow Labrys's is not Chest attribute, so it cannot be universally low-profiled.

  • Jump cancellable on hit and block.

Large upward axe swing that moves Shabrys low to the ground. Covers a huge amount of space above and around Shadow Labrys's head, including behind Shadow Labrys. Used in combos to launch opponents as well as serving as an anti-air attack. Can be used to punish moves with long recovery at certain spacings and any 2B hit leads to huge damage, as it is Shadow Labrys's best combo starter.

600 High 15 4 14 - Head -
  • Jump cancellable on hit and block.

A large axe swing that hits around Shadow Labrys in the shape of a "J." j.B is a fast attack with a huge hitbox, which allows for ambiguous cross-ups and fake cross-ups, and it leads to great damage. Since j.B can be difficult for some characters to effectively anti-air, a well-angled j.B is one method of approach. It also has use as a safe-jump and for positioning Shabrys in combos. While a fantastic normal with a variety of uses, beware becoming overly reliant on j.B, as jumping and airdashing around non-stop with it will cost you.

  • j.BB is not an overhead, j.2B is.

Followup to j.B. A horizontal axe swing that causes wallbounce. Has a slight backward hitbox, allowing for cross-ups with instant air-backdash, airturn, and careful positioning. j.BB is common in corner combos since the wallbounce allows for hard knockdown.


j.2B performs j.BB as a standalone move, allowing Shabrys to make use of j.BB's wallbounce in new situations, including midscreen, as well as when j.BB would fail to combo or yield no okizeme. Used in combos for corner carry and hard knockdown into okizeme. Can now be inputted as j.1B or j.3B. j.2B is a very strong air-to-air tool due to j.2B's enormous horizontal hitbox and cross-up potential; additionally, it does not extend Shadow Labrys's hurtbox as far as j.B does. Jump-cancellable on hit and block. Has landing recovery if not cancelled or if recovery is not completed in air.

300 High 27 3 31 -17 Body 10~27 Guard Strike

A giant overhead axe swing. Universal overhead. At 27 frames, it's fairly slow and the animation is somewhat telegraphed but the attack has a decent amount of range and the attack animation itself be obscured with careful use of Asterius. On hit, the C ender launches the opponent high into the air for a combo into knockdown, while the D ender shares 5B's animation and causes wallbounce near the corner. On ground hit, Shadow Labrys's AoA does quite a bit of damage but it's very unsafe on block without the meter to One More! Cancel. Can be used to combo into knockdown and set-ups or into supers. As a punish tool, however, it's not nearly as useful as it was in Arena due to improved Fatal routes, which offer much higher damage.

  • Has quite a bit of range and low-profiles well.

Shadow Labrys slides forward a bit and sweeps the opponent with her axe. Significantly negative on block, but can be made safer with proper spacing or a One More! Cancel. Like most sweeps, Shadow Labrys's be cancelled into a hop, DP, special, or super. Now low-profiles chest-attribute attacks such as Narukami's 5B and Mitsuru's 5A due to the inclusion of chest invuln. Used frequently in pressure, mix-up, and combos. Sweep and 2A are Shabrys's only low-hitting moves.

Persona Normal Attacks

At all times, Asterius has autoguard against moves with 400 or less base damage. If Shadow Labrys blocks, Asterius will stop performing any commands except SB skills and during Titanomachia. When preforming an SB skill, Asterius cannot be broken by normal attacks, only supers.

Shadow Labrys is also able to cancel all of Asterius's normal Persona attacks into specials and supers on hit, and block allowing Knuckle Train to be cancelled into Flame of Hades or Challenge Authority, for one example. Additionally, Persona moves can also be inputted while Shadow Labrys blocks, albeit with limited practical application.

  • Bracketed value is for start-up during Titanomachia.
  • Wallbounces on hit.
  • Can be charged to delay the attack and increase its damage.

Asterius lunges forward and punches the opponent. One oki option, as charging the attack punishes late-tech, and new cancel options allow a blocked 5C to be cancelled into various specials for mix-up. Very strong combo tool, particularly when charged for increased damage, though its proration is quite high. One of Shadow Labrys's strongest knockdown options when combined with Guillotine Aerial.

  • Tracks the opponent.

  • Bracketed value is for start-up during Titanomachia.

Asterius dives underground, locks on to the opponent's location, then reemerges at the opponent's location and punches them, blasting them into the air. Inflicts quite a bit of damage on hit and gives Shabrys advantage on block. The first of Shadow Labrys's main mixup tools, as airdashing or rolling through an opponent can cause 2C to crossup.

The threat of the attack forces the opponent to quickly stop their offensive to dodge the attack or block it and be put in blockstun. Useful for starting an offensive or punishing opponents for auto-piloting. Can be mashed while blocking at the risk of losing a card, as Asterius may continue the attack while Shabrys blocks if he makes it underground. If Shadow Labrys is blocking while Asterius is underground, he will fail to perform the move.

2C} is also key to displacing Asterius, as once he emerges, 2C can be cancelled into a special to continue pressure. On hit, the untechable time is significant and the attack can be followed up with a combo. Quickly reacting to how an opponent deals with 2C is important when mounting your offensive and determining whether you're gaining or losing ground.

Asterius spouts bits of flame from his horns. Makes an effective anti-air barrier and good for space control. Often seen in combos as the hitstun from the fire allows Shabrys to juggle opponents.

While the attack cannot hit grounded opponents, an opponent can certainly be launched into the flame with j.214B. Following up with a second j.214B ends the combo in a normal tech, while SB j.214 grants hard knockdown. This can be followed up with Flame of Hades for okizeme.

Asterius guards himself. Since he's always on-screen, activating Asterius's guard keeps him safe and allows you to avoid losing cards. There is no difference between 5D and 2D: they block both highs and lows just fine, as well as specials and supers. When blocking, Asterius absorbs projectiles, so a single-hit projectile that connects with a blocking Asterius will disappear upon contact with Asterius rather than continue onward to Shabrys herself. This however does not apply for moves like Rise's D buttons or Adachi's 5D. Shabrys is free to move while Asterius is blocking; however, he will always move or teleport to her location on her wake-up.

Pressing D once will cause Asterius to block until a command is inputted but system commands using C or D will automatically activate Asterius (for example, rolls, hops, Furious Actions, and throws will all trigger Asterius to attack). Holding and releasing D at precise timings to manipulate Asterius's movements is key to executing certain combos. In particular, Shadow Labrys can combo her 5AAA into hop > j.2B for a wallbounce, but this requires guard to be held as Asterius will attempt to 5C during this sequence.

  • Launches the opponent into the air on hit, on counter hit the opponent is bounced against the wall and can tech on the ground, allowing you to use Asterius as oki and take your turn.

Unlike most DPs, Shadow Labrys's has autoguard rather than invuln. At 15f, it's relatively fast, making it harder to cause reactable slowdown than with Labrys's DP, and hits surprisingly far in front of Shadow Labrys herself; however, the vertical hitbox is weak, allowing opponents to easily force it to whiff.

Used in combos to launch the opponent into an air combo or to supercancel. Due to its range, it can situationally be used as an anti-air. Like all DPs, it converts 4.5% HP into blue health and can be super-cancelled on hit or block. A strong DP but resist the urge to spam it or you'll lose a significant portion of your life (if not all of it).

Slow, as Guard Cancel Assaults are known to be, but one option of escaping pressure at the cost of 50 meter. Shares the same animation as Shadow Labrys's 5AAA and retains 5AAA's slight backward hitbox, so it can catch cross-ups. On hit, it's possible to combo afterward, though no combo beginning with a Guard Cancel can kill. The recovery can be cancelled with a One More! Cancel or One More! Burst.

All Versions
  • Hits overhead.

The attack pushes Shadow Labrys slightly back from her opponent. If combined with Asterius's moves, knockdown is still possible at the expense of free okizeme. All versions have deceptively large range and a huge number of active frames. Guillotine Axe can hit airborne opponents.


214A
  • Fastest startup.
  • Highly punishable on block.
  • Causes a techable ground bounce on hit.

With meter, can be One More! Cancelled into j.A for a double overhead fuzzyguard set-up or to continue pressure. The fourth move of Shadow Labrys's autocombo, so it's best to stop at 5AA or 5AAA to avoid letting the opponent tech immediately after the Guillotine unless Asterius is able to assist.


214B
  • Slowest startup.
  • Safe on block.
  • Causes a techable ground bounce on hit.

The opponent can jab you out of the move if you throw it out carelessly due to its lengthy start-up.


214AB
  • As fast as the A version.
  • Safe on block.
  • Causes an a ground techable knockdown on hit.

On hit, can convert into a full combo. Unlike Guillotine Axe A and B, the SB version is special-cancellable, though Shadow Labrys only has two ground specials: the Guillotine series and Chain Knuckle. Very useful for setting up Titanomachia activations or as a quick (but safe) grounded overhead, albeit at the cost of 25 meter.

All Versions
  • On hit, all versions cause wallbounce near the corner and an immediately techable bounce outside the corner.
  • All versions have poor startup and recovery.
  • Weak to chest invul.

Shoots out Shadow Labrys's hand as a chain-operated projectile. Unlike Labrys's Chain Knuckle, Shadow Labrys's has no follow-up attacks. Situationally useful for harassing opponents without giving up positioning and used in certain Fatal Counter combos. Use cautiously: Chain Knuckle can be low-profiled by moves with chest invuln, including sweeps.


236A
  • Fastest startup.
  • Reaches about half-screen.

Very unsafe on block if not spaced well and without Asterius for support.


236B
  • Slower startup.
  • Reaches about 3/4ths of the scren.

Whiff if the opponent is hugging the corner. Can be followed up near the corner even on normal hit.


236AB
  • Same startup as the B version.
  • Recovers the fastest out of any version.

Recovers slightly faster, allowing for easier follow-ups off the corner wallbounce. Can combo without Asterius with this if he is broken.

Shadow Labrys spins in place in the air for a bit, then slams her axe down on an opponent. Only the axe slam must be blocked high. A shockwave is created as Shadow Labrys's axe hits the ground, which is projectile attribute; the force of the shockwave is determined by her height when performing the attack.

Just like the ground Guillotine series, the Guillotine Aerial series changed from Arena to Ultimax and now cause a techable groundbounce instead of hard knockdown. Shadow Labrys must combine the Aerial with Asterius's attacks for hard knockdown or perform the Aerial after an airturn so that only one hit connects with the opponent (giving her meterless hard knockdown and better okizeme options).

If performed high enough in the air, the attack does more damage and hitstun/blockstun, as indicated by the bracketed values. Gullotine Aerial creates incredibly ambiguous mix-ups when One More! Cancelled before reaching the ground.


j.214A

Fastest start-up of all versions but the least damaging. Appears frequently in combos. When combined with Buffalo Hammer, leads to hard knockdown into okizeme. Can be cancelled into from almost any stray j.A or j.B hit. Head attribute, so it loses to most 2Bs.


j.214B

Slower, slightly more damaging, and more difficult to use in certain combos due to its restricted hitbox. Somewhat safer on block than the A version.


j;j.214A+B Unchanged from Arena: causes knockdown without Asterius at the expense of meter. Used for Massive Slaughter okizeme. Safest on block.

Asterius rears back and unleashes a diagonally-oriented laser that covers the middle-to-bottom portions of the screen. After a brief delay, the point where the laser contacts the ground erupts in an explosion. The C version is faster than D version, the D version has more active frames and recovers faster while the SB version pushes the opponent more into the explosion.

The C version is mostly used in neutral due to its faster startup or in pressure to go for a mixup opportunity, while the D version is typically used for oki after Airturn or SB Guillotine. The eruption at the end of the laser lingers a bit, so it's possible for the opponent to walk forward into it if they aren't careful. A common (and effective) setup out of this is 236D > IAD > j.A/land 2A, both which combo into high damage opportunities and can lead back into okizeme if they finish in the corner.

The dreaded Bite. Asterius pulls into the ground, and after a delay, lunges forward into a command grab. After the move finishes he shoots them out into the air. C version starts up fast and inflicts Poison, D version is slower but travels further further and inflicts Mute. SB version has faster startup than the C version and inflicts Fear. Has a hefty amount of proration so follow up combos have to be short, but it is possible to get a knockdown midscreen from it.

Mostly seen in set ups or pressure setups as part of psuedo-unblockable Biteloops. An example for a Biteloop setup would be > j.214AB ender (hold 4 while falling) > [4]6 > j.A safejump. The way that it works is that if you time the command grab to come as you do j.A, the opponent cannot jump or else they will be hit by j.A due to the air unblockable frames of jump startup, nor can they stand still and take the grab. Both options can combo and deal heavy amounts of damage, making this a deadly checkmate setup if you become skilled at it.

This setup can be beaten by a few methods such as delaying tech on wakeup for those familiar with the matchup after they see SB Guillotine. If you notice this, try changing which version and the timing of the command grab to throw them off, or read their options. The D version will catch delay techs. Alternatively, you can also use this move in pressure to catch people blocking too much. Doing 5C > [4]6C will cause Asterius to perform 5C and immediately go into Bite on block.

Anti-air grab and new move debuting in Ultimax. Asterius lunges upward, head extended to catch airborne opponents. On hit, Asterius proceeds to knock the opponent back and forth several times in mid-air, juggling them before finishing by flinging them away. The final hit causes an immediately air-techable wallbounce. Depending on the version used as well as the opponent's positioning, Shadow Labrys and the opponent may switch sides. Public Execution cannot hit grounded opponents (though they can be comboed into the grab in a variety of ways); however, as a command grab, it is unblockable, so airborne opponents must evade the grab once it's active.

As a reactive anti-air grab, Public Execution has weaknesses, from its start-up and limited hitbox to its proration, but it truly shines in combos. Despite Public Execution's high proration values, the move has a significant amount of guaranteed untechable time, allowing for extensions into Brutal Impact B or SB. Since the grab cannot be Bursted, its primary use is in max damage and/or kill combo routes to link supers together while locking out an opponent's Burst. Additionally, Public Execution is comboable, whether as a combo starter or mid-combo move, and does high damage on raw hit, making it quite good for tech traps and air combo resets; however, there is no way to force an opponent into any version of Public Execution after airblocking one of Asterius's attacks, so using Public Execution to catch various techs or as a reset is highly situational.

The image shows the first hit of Public Execution, which is the grab's initiation and always does zero damage. Asterius's forward distance when beginning the grab differs depending on the version used. All versions have identical proration values; however, the greater the number of hits, the longer the opponent is juggled, giving Shadow Labrys more time to charge and release Brutal Impact B or SB.


[2]8C

Asterius appears closest to Shadow Labrys. Start-up is faster than the D version's, slower than the SB's. Hits three times. This version has less utility than the D and SB versions, but can be used when close to the corner to link into Brutal Impact B or SB. On raw hit, it's more difficult to follow-up than other versions, but it can be used as a tech trap or to punish an opponent for jumping out, though beware losing okizeme and positioning, as the wallbounce from the final hit will allow the opponent to tech out of the corner if the grab is not followed up. If cancelled into from one of Asterius's normals, Asterius will begin the grab from his current location, extending the range.


[2]8D

Asterius travels forward before beginning the grab, giving it improved range but the slowest start-up of all versions. Hits four times. Combos from 5AAAA and can be followed up without Brutal Impact, though such combos are typically impractical and do less damage than standard routes. With Awakening, Public Execution D is an excellent combo tool, as it creates combo extensions from both Titanomachia and Brutal Impact into a second Brutal Impact for explosive, unburstable damage. The final hit always causes Shadow Labrys and the opponent to switch sides.


[2]8CD

Shares the range of the D version with the fastest start-up at the cost of 25 SP. Hits five times. Like the D version, it combos from Shadow Labrys's autocombo, and, again, allows for combo extensions after Titanomachia into both the B and SB versions of Brutal Impact. The SB version is a very strong combo tool due to the grab's untechable time.


Titanomachia

Fastest start-up of all versions. As with the C version, hits three times, but the damage of the third hit is increased. Begins from Asterius's current position. Used in very specific Titanomachia sequences or as a "surprise" attack to catch opponents during Titanomachia, though such use should be sparing.

Asterius swings his fist and delivers a giant punch to the screen. Has deceptively large range and does a good amount of damage with a significant amount of invuln. Unlike in the original Arena, both Shadow Labrys and Asterius are invuln to supers. The attack starts from Asterius's position, not Shadow Labrys, making it useful for punishing and/or sniping an opponent. Cannot be One More! Cancelled or One More! Bursted, so if blocked, expect to be punished heavily. When done in the air, Shadow Labrys jumps forward slightly and can cross-up opponents.


236236C

Fastest start-up but highly negative on block. Best used at the end of combos to add damage when the super will kill or as a punish.


236236D

Very slow start-up, slightly higher damage than the C version, and slightly less recovery. Much safer on block than the C version. Somewhat less useful at the end of combos than in Arena due to the addition of SB supers, but the D version's start-up and increased invuln allow it to counter certain supers, as well as make certain routes Burst-safe.


236236CD

Has the C version's start-up and D's recovery, does the most damage, and floats the opponent on hit allowing for combo extensions and much better set-ups after the super. Links to Brutal Impact A for an unburstable kill combo or the float can be used to continue into an air combo; Challenge Authority SB is even comboable into itself for a round-ender. A very strong super with plenty of applications. Preferable to the C version when the super won't kill due to the SB version providing a stronger safejump and better set-up options with Asterius.

  • All versions of Brutal Impact are Fatal Recovery.
  • No cancel options are available for any version of Brutal Impact, making its utility as a reversal limited.
  • Due to where the axe hits an opponent, Brutal Impact loses to moves with significant chest invuln, such as Narukami's Swift Strike C.
  • While Brutal Impact cannot be cancelled, combo routes in and out of the move exist.
  • Brutal Impact is the only super available to Shadow Labrys when persona-broken.
  • Minumum damage, per variant: A 900; B 1,350; SB 1,800.

Screen-crossing axe swipe. Has it's major use as a combo ender for big damage, otherwise used as an expensive reversal. Notable for its use in 100 SP Titanomachia combos, which can deal high amounts of damage very easily.


The fastest version of Brutal Impact at 30f, but has the lowest minimum damage. Hits in front of Shadow Labrys and travels roughly a third of the stage. Can be used as high-risk, high-reward reversal, though the risk is significant, as an opponent can easily OMC after hitting the autoguard, leaving Shadow Labrys extremely vulnerable. It's possible (and safer) to combo into Brutal Impact A even while persona broken to end a round. Used in certain kill combos and can be added during Titanomachia after certain confirms for extra damage.


Brutal Impact B is much slower than Brutal Impact A but much more damaging. The attack can be delayed by holding the B button, extending the time before the attack becomes active and its autoguard. Unlike Brutal Impact A, this version travels the entire screen. Used in almost every Titanomachia sequence due to its hefty minimum damage and appears in Public Execution juggles, but it has no use outside of combos.


SB Brutal Impact is the slowest of the Brutal Impact series, but sports the highest minimum damage and a different post-flash start-up time. Like the B variant, the SB version travels full-screen and can be delayed by holding A+B. Used in some Titanomachia combos and Public Execution juggles.

Shabrys's Awakening super, and one of the strongest single moves in the entire game. Useful for just about anything from neutral to mixups, and a great comeback tool. Devastating in combos.

Upon activation, Shadow Labrys points to Asterius and commands him to perform up to three separate attacks during the superfreeze. Following these three attacks, Asterius will cover the whole screen in a barrage of flames colloquially called "Hellflames". Both Asterius's normals and specials can be used during Titanomachia, but no normal or special may be used twice in the sequence (for example, the system will acknowledge 5C, 2C, 214C as a valid string, but not 5C, 2C, 5C or 214C, 2C, 214D). Each of Asterius's moves has a Titanomachia-specific variant. During Titanomachia, Asterius has autoguard against all attacks except supers and will not cease attacking even if Shadow Labrys enters blockstun.

An absolutely devastating super due to its damage potential (particularly when combined with Brutal Impact), allowing Shadow Labrys to kill opponents without allowing them to reach Awakening, and any successful activation places the opponent in a high-pressure situation in which an incorrect guess often means death. Bursting Titanomachia is often certain death, since it is likely that once you Burst, you'll either get caught by Asterius or Shabrys and have your combo proration reset. Hellflames in particular does massive damage raw, so you might just need to take the hit if Asterius or Shabrys clips you.

It is possible for an opponent to end Titanomachia early in various ways, many of which are discussed in the Strategy section.


Titanomachia C: Once the super is activated, Asterius begins the attack sequence from his current position, independent of Shadow Labrys herself.


Titanomachia D: Before performing the first attack, Asterius teleports behind the opponent, delaying the sequence but enabling even trickier mix-ups. There is no way for an opponent to distinguish whether the C or D version was used during the superfreeze.


Titanomachia SB: Asterius begins attacking from his current position, as in the C version, but Shadow Labrys's recovery is greatly reduced, making it more difficult for opponents to punish the activation while creating new mix-up and combo opportunities. Additionally, SB Titanomachia is invuln until the superflash, whereas the C and D versions have no invuln frames, so an opponent cannot counter-hit Shadow Labrys before the flash.


After executing all commands input during Titanomachia's activation, Asterius ends the super with a full-screen fire attack. These "Hellflames" have a second superfreeze that focuses on Asterius; the attack is released 19 frames after the freeze. On hit, the finisher launches the opponent to the top of the screen and forces an extended fall, allowing for combos to continue even after Hellflames. However, the flames are a projectile, so opponents who have escaped or evaded a combo can roll the finisher.

It's also possible to force a last-moment cross-up by passing through or jumping over an opponent -- the attack must be blocked relative to Shadow Labrys's position, not Asterius's, so an opponent will be hit if they do not block the cross-up correctly. All versions of Titanomachia share the same finisher. Unless the combo is heavily prorated, the untechable time on Hellflames allows for combos to continue.


  • Once activated, Titanomachia has a five-second cooldown period. Cooldown begins immediately after the finisher or after the super is successfully interrupted.
  • The screen darkens (similar to Shadow Frenzy) while Titanomachia is active.
  • At the first superfreeze, an input counter appears above Shadow Labrys's meter. This counter begins at one, signifying the finisher.
  • If activated in the air, landing recovery is added; air activation no longer cancels ground recovery time.
  • If Titanomachia is interrupted, Shadow Labrys loses a Persona card.

Once activated, a red bar appears by the SP Gauge. You can attempt the grab portion of the instant kill until the bar empties by inputting 222A+B while close to the opponent. If successful, Shadow Labrys drags the opponent down to hell before leaving Asterius to finish them off.

The grab portion is now a command throw, rendering combos into Shadow Labrys's Instant Kill obsolete. It's situationally useful as a punish to certain supers (such as Adachi's D vorpal blade, or Marie's shutupihateyoustupidjerk) but no longer match-practical. While the start up is invul on the activation, there is no invul on the grab portion.
