Overview
Overview

Metera is a keep-away character whose playstyle is to chip away at the opponent. With her arrows, using tools like Aetherial Seal change the properties of her Starry Sky to keep opponents locked down or effectively doing high damaging combos all while graciously floating about the screen with a smile on her face.


"There's nothing I can't do!"
Lore:An Erune woman blessed with myriad talents, chief among them the abilities to wield a magic bow and to sustain flight completely unaided. She once acted as a guardian for her home village, watching over an altar where a sinister force was enshrined. But she grew tired of the mundane regimen and abandoned her post. Now she wanders wherever the wind takes her. Her arrows are a reflection of this freedom—unhindered by any obstacle and sure to find their target. Once she sets her eyes on a mark, there’s nowhere to hide.

Playstyle
GBVS Metera Icon.png Metera is a projectile zoner that controls space with multiple arrows and special movement. She is able to utilize her butterflies for setplay options that can lead to big damage or additional space control.
Pros Cons
  • Projectile Zoning: Myriad of projectiles from both ground and air to frustrate opponents with.
  • High-Damage Setups: Aetherial Seal changes the properties of Starry Sky and The Great Fall, helping set up many of her high damage combo routes and pressure.
  • Double Jump: Can double-jump using Zephyr hop, an amazing tool for pressure and escaping.
  • Evasive: Starry Sky (Low) low-profiles, and combining that with Starry Sky (Air) and Zephyr hop make sure that opponents can't easily touch her.
  • Fast backwalk Speed: She has one of the fastest backwalk speeds in the game, good at making some characters whiff normals
  • Low Health: Lowest hit-points among the cast alongside Ferry. Cannot afford many mistakes.
  • Slow Normals: Her fastest normals are slower than most of the cast and also have short reach.
  • No Meterless Reversal: No reversal besides her super, making it very difficult for her to escape corner pressure.
  • Situational Anti-Air: She has numerous Anti-air options between (1/2H), The Great Fall, and f.5M, but each have their own weaknesses so you can't only rely on one.

  • Wide and vertical poke, covers a good amount of space and doubles as a pseudo anti-air

  • Your Projective Poke button.
  • On hit or block allows you to cancel into Specials, 5U, Spot Dodge, or Supers on the same frame. (Note on projective clash does not let you special cancel)
  • Big Buffer window for specials cancels so your next move will startup the frame they block or get hit.
  • Travels half screen allowing you to outrange other characters pokes.
  • Actives Aetherial Seal
  • Slower startup than Starry Sky with the less recovery than Starry Sky

  • Major anti-air move and combo starter/extender. Is a projectile and can therefore be blocked in the air
  • Using 2H makes the arrow fly in a 45° angle, while using 1H makes it fly at a much steeper angle, which is useful against people jumping very close to Metera and trying to get a crossup.
  • On hit or block allows you to cancel into Specials, 5U, Spot Dodge, or Supers. (Note on projective clash does not let you special cancel)
  • Huge hitstun on counter hit, they won't recover until they hit the ground. Allows combos like 2H>5U>j.H and impractical links like 2H>2U
  • Triggers Aetherial Seal and good for shooting charged Aetherial Seals
  • No pushback on block which can lead to frametraps like 2H > delay The Great Fall(H) or 2H > delay Starry Sky(H)

Travels higher than a standard projectile, so it won't hit crouching foes at a distance. L fires a slower shot, M fires a faster shot. You cannot fire a new Starry Sky (High and low) before the former one disappears, is blocked or hit. All versions activates Aetherial Seal. When the H version is used to knock down for juggle combos, Starry Sky (High) floats a little bit higher than the low version.

When used midair, Metera fires at a downward angle. L&H fires at a steep downward shot, M fires a more horizontal shot. Good for counter-poke or disrespecting the ground fireball wars of puny mortals. L&M ver. totally cancels your original momentum with a small forward hop, while H ver. only slows you down, which makes a bit difference when need to be really precise. M midair arrow will cause a HKD on counterhit.

Travels lower than a standard projectile, so it'll hit crouching foes but can be easily jumped over. L fires a slower shot, M fires a faster shot. Activates Aetherial Seal, however it usually goes under L and M versions.

Usually you tend to save this and use Starry Sky (high) to get a HKD because Starry Sky (low) is tied to Starry Sky (air) backward, but it really depends. M midair arrow will cause a HKD on counterhit

Fires an arrow toward the sky that bursts into a shower of arrows. L fires close to Metera, M and H fires further horizontally (H version stops at corners with quicker startup and recovery). The initial arrow can activate Aetherial Seal, and cannot be blocked by foes midair. If Metera gets hit after firing the initial arrow, the shower stops immediately. When using non-H versions as anti-air tools, a hard read is required to land a solid air-unblockable on the opponent because of how slow it is.

The L and M version doesn't hit grounded oponent.

  • Hold down the button to make L & M butterflies to fly ~45° upward.
  • Moves that trigger explosion: f.H, 2H, 1H, Universal Overhead, Starry Sky (High and Low), and The Great Fall (Initial Arrow).

Your setplay tool. Blow a kiss to send out butterfly that flutters across the stage. It does nothing by itself, but can be triggered to explode vertically by hitting it with any of Metera's arrow moves. The butterflies eventually will fizzle out, but the H version is the only version that stops at the stage wall. Butterflies are mostly used to extend combos, especially in corner for many of Metera's high damage routes. It can also be used to deny an opponent's approach, but it's harder to have one set up for that purpose than to have one set up after a knockdown.

Performs a powerful jumping somersault kick. If you're close enough to your opponent when the first strike connects, Metera will perform an enhanced version for increased damage. The hitbox for the cinematic version is pretty big, but it's harder to get on an airborne opponent. This is your only reversal outside of SSBA, but it's also a decent (albeit slow) anti-air. It looks like Dense Caress hits all around Metera, but sadly it's not that big. You never hit an opponent right above or behind you.

4500→3000 All 5+8 - - -29 HKD -

  • You will rarely see this move doing 4500 damage because it almost always drops the opponent down to less than 60% before the last hit lands.
  • Its startup is somewhat slow for an SSBA, especially when used as a reversal, and it is air-blockable. Dense Caress is a better reversal option.
  • Since this move only goes full version when the opponent is close to you, it is possible that corner AA 2H > Rapid Pulverize does not get the cinematic version reliably, requiring a delay.
  • Good for setting up a chip kill situation from afar.

Launches a barrage of arrows. If this skill hits the opponent at close range, Metera will perform an enhanced version for increased damage. Since it covers a long range, it can be used as a combo finisher or a counterpoke from afar.
