Djeeta is a hybrid ShotoShort for "shotokan"A character archetype defined by being similar in some way to Ryu or Ken Masters from Street Fighter. Shotos usually have a horizontal fireball, an invincible reversal, and a forward moving special move. with an emphasis on fireballA projectile which usually travels slowly across the screen in a horizontal path above the ground. and rekkaA series of special attacks that are only available after the first one is performed. pressure. Djeeta can be compared in many ways to Gran, her male counterpart from the source Granblue Fantasy game. She enjoys noticeably better range on her normals, a larger fireball variety, and safer special cancels compared to Gran, but has an alternate Overdrive Surge which is not as reliable or as useful as a poke.
Djeeta is a well-rounded hybrid shoto with an emphasis on fireball and rekka pressure.
- Good Pokes: Djeeta boasts very strong pokes in her f.M, 2M, and f.H, all of which can be buffered or hit confirmed into Vorpal Blade for damage and corner carry.
- Excellent Fireball: Djeeta's fireball, Reginleiv, can be charged to alter the timing of the fireball and improve the frame advantage.
- Strong Pressure: Djeeta boasts a variety of fast, good-reaching normals that are excellent for both frametraps and staggers. These normals can also cancel/delayed cancel into Vorpal Blade which naturally frame traps the opponent for potentially high damage. Her fireball can be charged to reset her pressure and a unique property of her auto combo can create rather oppressive strings that can be difficult for the opponent to escape.
- Excellent DPs: Djeeta's DPs are amongst the best in the cast. Most notably, her medium Rising Sword. Which plays a key role in dealing with many of her matchups.
- Huge Corner Carry: Thanks to Heavy Vorpal Blade granting a wall bounce. Djeeta is able to do a full corner combo on her opponents even at roundstart position. Farther off an anti-air.
- Long Combos: One of her specialties is being able to create combos long enough that it can often loop into the exact same combo route on the next hit. Keeping her average damage potential very high on every confirm and there are plenty of combo routes that still do great damage using minimal cooldowns. In other words, she is almost always ready to deal a significant damage regardless of how many resources she spent just prior.
- Weak Whiff Punish Options Without Meter: Djeeta's special cancel options for heavily whiff punishing the opponents from longer range are on the weaker side without meter. Many non-counter hits outside the range of her f.M cannot convert into any Vorpal Blade. And is therefore, limited to f.H into Medium Vorpal Blade as her most reliable option in certain matchups. She can also use 50 meter for Rush or burn Eternal Ascendancy.
Djeeta's fastest button and one of her primary pressure tools.
- Links into itself, 2L and c.M on normal hit.
- Links into 2M or 2U on crouching hit.
- Frametraps into c.H on 6F normals only.
Standard close medium. Good for autocombo pressure when used in tandem with Vorpal Blade to catch people challenging after your autocombo hits on block. Also your best link out of c.L or 2L without crouching or counter hit.
- Links into itself, 2M, and c.H on counter hit.
- One of the few medium normals that is 0 on block. Very useful as a stagger tool, especially vs characters that don't have access to a 5F normal.
This normal is actually quite strong in a number of ways.
- Can act as a delayed frametrap from c.L or 2L to catch throw teching or jump outs.
- Links into itself or f.H on counter hit, depending on how close you are to the opponent.
- At close range, can actually be a more consistent anti-air than 2H and leads to higher damage.
- Loses to deep cross up moves or j.L cross ups.
Generally used to assist in confirms, cooldown stalling and/or blockstring corner carry. In general, one shouldn't use autocombos in order to maximize damage in punish scenarios.
- Cancels into M Vorpal Blade on block will frametrap an opponent attempting to mash certain frame normals after Djeeta's autocombo, this cancel can be dodged and punished.
- Her 5XX is one of the the few auto combos in the game that can cancel later than normal into it's recovery, making it a formidable mixup and stagger tool.
Like Gran's, can be confirmed into from two 2L/c.L's.
- Good range for its speed, at the cost of whiffing on crouchers at max range.
- Combos into L or H Vorpal Blade.
f.M is one of Djeeta's prime pokes, and behaves similar to Gran's, while boasting very good range.
- Great range for its speed.
- Combos into L and H Vorpal Blade on normal hit, and M Vorpal Blade on counter hit.
- Cancels into M Vorpal Blade on block will frametrap an opponent pressing buttons, but this cancel can be dodged and punished.
- Spaced cancels into a charged fireball (Reginleiv: Recidive) can punish opponent trying to dodge cancels into Vorpal Blade.
- Tip range f.M into L Reginleiv can typically leave Djeeta +1 or higher.
- The hurtbox extension on this normal retracts extremely fast once the active frames are done. Making this an incredible normal to poke with from range.
Similar to Gran's f.H.
- Combos into all versions of Vorpal Blade.
- Can be used as a far anti-air option for further jumps that 2H won't be able to hit.
- Can frametrap with M Vorpal Blade on block, like with f.M.
- At max range, a cancel into a charged light fireball will be plus on block.
- Excellent for crushing an opponent attempting to poke out after a spaced blockstring.
- Useful to keep an opponent locked in the corner while scouting jumps or dashes.
Djeeta's other plus on block normal, and her main stagger pressure tool. The myriad of links out of this normal on crouching and counter hit allow her to run relatively safe and rewarding blockstrings.
- Links into itself, c.L, f.L and c.M on normal hit.
- Links into 2M or 2U on crouching hit. Since f.L will whiff on crouchers, confirming crouching hit and using 2M or 2U instead is important for her offense.
- Frametraps into c.H on 6F normals only.
While it may look unassuming and even a bit stubby, you will eventually find this being one of the cornerstones of Djeeta's neutral. It's long active frames make for a decent counterpoke buffering option.
- Incredibly fast poke. Can be useful for some mashing situations.
- The initial lunge has a disjoint extending forward before retracting slightly. Matching the animation.
- Djeeta's best normal for checking Cross Overs, with 2U being the next strongest.
- Combos into L and H Vorpal Blade on normal hit, and M Vorpal Blade on counter hit. Like with f.M and f.H, cancels into M Vorpal Blade on block will frametrap, at the risk of your cancel being dodged.
Djeeta's main non-special move anti-air. Does not lower her profile as much as Gran and Katalina's 2Hs, so it can occasionally lose in situations where their anti-airs would be more consistent. Still quite strong overall.
- Forward range is not as far as it looks, but hits behind Djeeta very well. Excellent for dealing with crossups.
- Can be stuffed by some early jump normals, or very close range jumps. For these angles, c.H or Rising Sword can be better anti-airs.
- Combos into 5U or Rising Sword on normal hit.
- Counter hit conversions can be awkward. Juggles into f.M, f.H, or c.H depending on the height and distance the opponent was hit. You'll have to judge the situation on reaction based on where your opponent is.
- No conversions that work consistently on normal and counter hit, forcing Djeeta to confirm normal vs counter hit to optimize her anti-air damage.
Similar to Gran's 2U, though not quite as ignorant. Still a very excellent sweep.
- Is stubbier than Gran's 2U.
- Fast startup makes this relatively strong in abare or fuzzy mash, like 2M.
- Can low profile some projectiles and high-hitting normals, like Gran's 2U but not as early.
- Combos into L and H Vorpal Blade on hit, and M Vorpal Blade on counter hit. Frametrap cancels can also be performed on block with this normal.
- This normal grants a very easy safejump in the corner by just immediately jumping forward afterward, which can be useful for ending Djeeta's corner combos.
- Has a low-profile hurtbox on frames 5-27.
Active until landing like every other j.L. This property can create some inconsistent, if not amusing interactions with some anti-airs in the game, but generally not your best option in the air.
- Crosses up slightly.
- This will be the preferred jump-in of choice if the opponent prefers to anti-air with normals outside of their own 2H.
Another one of Djeeta's crossup normals. Reaches farther back than j.L. Can be useful for speed since it is faster than j.U, but overall, j.U will be a better option in plenty of situations you might want to use this normal.
- Due to its faster startup compared to jU, you can use this later in the jump-in to avoid counter-hit from preemptive anti-airs.
- Useful for ambiguous jump-in mixups.
Djeeta's furthest reaching jump normal. Mainly useful for far jump-ins where j.U won't reach, or for safejumps in the corner.
- Has a noticeable disjoint in the initial active frames.
Very familiar looking jump normal. Djeeta swings below her in an arc in a nearly identical manner to Gran and Katalina's j.Us. The hitbox is not quite as large as these normals, but the purpose remains the same.
- Djeeta's best jump normal, period. Hits in a wide arc below her and is very active, allowing her to use it at different points in her jump arc for different purposes.
- Very good safe jump normal along with j.H.
- Can stuff some poorly timed or weaker anti-airs if done at the correct timing during her jump arc.
- Grants juggles on air-to-air hit without counter hit if low enough to the ground.
- Normal jump j.U can be used in close range as a throwbait that won't give up your pressure, or to surprise an opponent to try and escape the corner.
- This is Djeeta's slowest jump normal, so can it can lose to some pre-emptive air-to-airs and is prone getting counter-hit due to it's high amount of active frames.
- Can clash with M button anti-airs due to its higher than normal hurtbox and M level clash priority. Useful vs the Ferry or Metera matchup as it creates an almost certain losing situation for them.
|5U||800/1000/1200/1400/1800||All||28/16*||5||14||-2||+3 [Forced Crouch]||4~20 (lvl 4)|
|5[U] ~ X||Total 15|
A heel kick that can be strengthened up to 5 levels, becoming fully invincible at the maximum level. Behaves very similarly to Gran's Power Raise, but is not nearly as useful.
- 28F assuming if Djeeta casts 5U immediately. 16F for the startup of releasing the kick itself.
- Can be charged by holding U. Cancel the charge by pressing L, M, or H.
- Canceled at its earliest point, the move is 26 frames total.
- Fully held, the move is 178 frames long, though Djeeta does not have to wait for the fully held move to reach level 4.
- Can hop over some low hitting moves, but high-profile ability is generally quite difficult to exploit due to the slow startup.
- Can ground-bounce on any counter-hit whether grounded or airborne. Requires level 1 charge or higher to ground-bounce on juggled opponents mid-combo.
- Can be used to punish projectiles when fully charged, but this situation will be incredibly rare in a match.
- Can be used as a throw-bait like universal overhead, but is not nearly as rewarding without counter-hit, nor does it have the additional property of hitting overhead + earlier throw invincibility.
- Can add an additional layer of offense to her pressure by canceling the stance itself for baiting whiffed buttons and mixing the cancel options off a normal between letting 5U rip, rekkas, fireballs, etc.
- Can be spaced to be a maximum +2 on block and up to +7 on hit for a 2M follow-up. The range to perform this is a bit outside fM range and only the tip of Djeeta's flip kick hits the opponent's foot.
|Level 2||Level 3||Level 4||Level 5|
|5[U] ~ X|
5[U] ~ X:
Djeeta's ground throw. A necessary part of her offense as she lacks many other options other than staggers and frametraps. Use this once your opponent is respecting your blockstrings heavily, or try to bait them to tech with her universal overhead.
- Superjump j.H or j.U after forward throw in the corner will grant a pretty easy safe jump.
- After a forward throw directly at the wall, whiffing c.L into whiff 2M into 2L grants her a DP safejab. Automatically links into c.H on hit. You can delay each button or use the recovery of the 2M as she stands up to hide a throw attempt.
- After a forward throw very close to the wall, whiffing 2L into the universal Overhead Attack grants Djeeta a meaty combo-able overhead.
Standard air throw. Useful for calling out jump arc changing moves or someone trying to escape her corner pressure by jumping.
|1000||High||26||6||17||-4 to +1||+1 to +6|
Same use as most overheads, checking for low blocks and getting counter hits on late buttons or throws. Links into c.H on counter hit, allowing Djeeta to start her max damage combos on a proper throwbait.
- Can hit meaty to link after without counter hit. Whiffing 2L, then inputting overhead after forward throw is a simple framekill to enable this. Links into c.L or 2L in this situation.
300×2, 400 (technical)
Djeeta's projectile. One of the best projectiles in the game, and significantly more versatile than Gran's counterpart.
- Projectile speed has two variations. L being the slower and M/H being faster.
- H version hits 3 times and is plus on block, making it very strong for winning fireball wars or resetting her pressure.
- Spaced blockstrings ending with a fireball in the corner can leave the opponent in position to have their counterpoke crushed by her f.H.
|236[H]||300×2, 400 (easy)
300×2, 500 (technical)
Djeeta charges her fireball, giving it an extra point in durability and much better frame advantage. This aspect of her fireball is what really sets it apart from the other shotos' projectiles.
- Not that useful for winning fireball wars due to the long charge time. Will also still lose to H fireballs.
- Can bait people trying to dodge or Cross Over through projectiles by delaying the projectile timing.
- Has better frame data on hit and block than an uncharged fireball, and can be easily spaced to be plus on block. For example, max range f.H cancelled into a charged fireball will generally be plus on block.
- Knocks down on counter-hit. Spaced cancels into a charged fireball will potentially punish dodges, which can lead to very beefy punishes in the corner.
- Charged version of H fireball has some use in some height specific anti-air conversions and in corner juggles.
- Djeeta is not in counter-hit state once she hits frame 40 in the animation. Therefore, L and M hold fireballs are never in counter-hit state once launched.

An invulnerable anti-air technique, with each version gaining progressively more hits and damage.
- Due to her somewhat less consistent 2H, Djeeta is somewhat more reliant on her DP for anti-airing than other shotos.
- L and M versions are air unblockable on the first active frame only. H version is air unblockable for the first rise of the move, but not the second.
- L version keeps her more in place during the startup, useful for anti-airing certain cross up moves that have a hurtbox behind them. (EX: Katalina jU)
- M version advances her forward during the startup, with a large horizontal range to goes upward. It's because of the horizontal range that makes this move a key factor in some matchups that can enable her offense.
- H version grants a hard knockdown and a safejump, which can be useful for reversing a sticky situation.
- Some of Djeeta's corner combo routes will automatically leave the opponent at the proper height to combo after her H Rising Sword, allowing her to juggle into a 2U or c.H into Skybound Art or safejump afterwards.

|214H > 214H > 214H||400||Mid||17||3||22||-8||HKD|
Two advancing slashes that can be rekka'd into additional followups. Djeeta's main confirm special, granting her excellent corner carry on hit. This move is also extremely strong in her offense due to its frametrap ability and relative safety.
- The L version comes out quickly, while the M version is slower, but reaches further and is safer on block.
- The L and M versions will immediately perform the ender with a second 214 input, while the H version will perform a second set of slashes before the knockdown ender.
- The ender can frametrap an opponent attempting to challenge the first part of the rekka on block. The ender is always unsafe on block, so perform with caution.
- Additionally, H rekka ender can now wall bounce within proximity of the corner. Allowing potentially bigger combos from midscreen to corner.
- Djeeta cannot follow up with anything if the ender frametraps the opponent when directly at the corner. Even on counter-hit.
- Additionally, H rekka ender can now wall bounce within proximity of the corner. Allowing potentially bigger combos from midscreen to corner.
- M version launches on counter-hit. Allowing full combo confirms when near the corner.
- M version is safe on block and will frametrap in cancels from auto combo and nearly all of Djeeta's far normals, making it a strong option to use to end a blockstring with some free chip. This cancel can be dodged and punished, though this comes with risk to the opponent as this dodge can be baited by simply blocking or using a charged fireball to punish it.
- Both the M and H versions see staple use in Djeeta's corner combos as she can juggle into normals after the initial followups if she does not perform the ender.
- The H version can have a gap between the first and second follow-up. Allowing a potentially large reward for punish attempts on the first part at the compromise that the risk is greater for Djeeta afterward due to being closer to the opponent for a punish if they decide to continue blocking.
- Due to the advancing nature of this move, the L and H version are viable alternatives to Djeeta's poor whiff punishing options against longer normals and play a key role in her neutral gameplan.

A powerful attack that has invulnerability on startup. The forward lunge makes it great for discouraging reckless use projectile usage from opponents when Djeeta has it available.
- Base damage for 236S is 3500; minimum damage is 513. Base damage for 236236H is 3700; minimum damage is 935.
Using this input and hitting an opponent at close range unleashes Reginleiv Azimuth, a long sequence of automatic follow-ups. While performing this input is logically faster and great for reacting to projectiles or other attacks at close range, it does less damage and does not grant Djeeta a safe jump A very well-timed jump attack on a character who is rising from a knockdown. Your goal is to attack extremely close to when you land so that, if the character performs an invincible reversal attack, you will land and be able to block. The opponent is then forced to block your jumping attack, since reversaling doesn't work, which will give you some nice pressure and hopefully an opening. afterwards.
- The follow-up attacks do not happen if the 1st attack is blocked or if the attack hits from too far away.
Using this input allows Djeeta to instead perform Reginleiv Zenith, an upgraded sequence that requires Rave Short for "Deadly Rave". A super move in which a player must press a series of buttons (usually eight button presses and a quarter-circle move) after execution in order to complete the move.-style inputs for each follow-up.
The rave input is
L, L, M, M, H, H, L, M, H, 214U. This still can be done on block, but each hit is still punishable on block.
Since the follow-ups can be performed on any hit when using the technical input, this allows Djeeta to confirm into her max damage Skybound Art from much further than most characters. This includes whiff punishing extended hurtboxes, well outside of the range that 236S would allow. Confirm 236236H from f.MGuardMidStartup8Recovery18Advantage-6, 2MGuardMidStartup7Recovery12Advantage-3, or f.HGuardMidStartup10Recovery21Advantage-9 for great returns on a single hit confirm or projectile callout.
In close to point-blank scenarios, delaying the 1st follow-up as long as possible after the first attack is blocked can create a frame trap.
- On-hit, Djeeta is +4 if she fails to complete the full sequence at any follow-up.
Super Skybound Art
236236U or 236S+U
|4500→3500||Mid||7+5||-46 to -52||HKD||1-21 All|
Djeeta performs a rising uppercut like Katalina's SSBA (contrast with Gran's projectile SSBA). If it hits properly, the attack finishes with Proto Bahamut. If the cinematic doesn't connect, the attack finishes with a big sword slice that sends the opponent back to the ground.
- Not a good reversal; can be option selected with meaty lights.
- Not a bad option as a raw anti-air, though Djeeta moves quite far forward during the uppercut, making the effective range somewhat awkward. Will combo consistently from 2H regardless of counter hit.
- Uppercut nature of the super makes it highly unsafe on block and more or less impossible to confirm into from max range pokes. Generally sees use to end her corner combos when Djeeta is below 30% health.
- Minimum Damage:
- Technical Input: 1350→1050
- Simple Input: 900→700
