Overview

Overview

Making his debut in the series, Sin is a ranged monster with most of his attacks boasting significantly higher range than any other character in the game. He also has access to Beak Driver, one of the best special moves in the game, able to do anything from conversions off far away hits to quickly breaking an opponents guard. He also has very strong servant clear, with high damage AoE attacks that can quickly shred a group of servants

Sin's skills include Patecatl Stain, one of the best skills in the game. It shoots out a healing beam that will heal back a significant amount of HP to any servants it hits. This skill is made even stronger when playing in 2v2, as it will heal your ally's servants and even their master as well.

However, nothing is without weakness, and Sin's main weakness is the slow speed of all his attacks. His quickest attacks have issues of their own, being easy to avoid due to hitbox weaknesses such as avoiding his 6X by walking to the right. However, while fighting with his tribe, Sin can cover the slow speed of his attacks with his servant's attacks and bodies.

Sin's overall mediocre normals results in him needing to use Beak Driver very often, and although it's an amazing move it does cost tension to use. He also relies on Beak Driver to convert all his hits into highly damaging combos. Without the threat of a combo off his attacks, Sin is a much weaker character and thus heavily relies on tension to win master fights.

While Sin can be weak without tension, when he does have tension he is an incredibly strong character who can stop any attempt to harm his own servants with Beak Driver. As long as Sin fights with his servants, they'll do a good job of covering him.

 Sin is a Master with large yet slow attacks which give him good Servant ClearWhen a Master takes time to clear massive swathes of enemy Servants, often by abusing strong single-hitting attacks with wide reach.. Alone Sin's attacks can be whiff punished but next to his strong Tribe he becomes an offensive powerhouse.

Pros
Cons
  • Amazing Reach: Moves such as 5X and Beak Driver mean Sin is almost never out of range to threaten the opponent
  • Pressure Nightmare: Most of Sin's normals aren't anything special on guard, but his F8X and most of his special moves do high damage to guard, allowing him to cause a guard break extremely fast.
  • Strong Army: With an army that's strong in all stages of the game, Sin can focus on playing where he wants and avoid engagement until it becomes advantageous.
  • Patecatl Stain: Even though Sin's army is expensive, he can keep his units alive longer than any other master due to his ability to heal them.
  • Slow buttons: Most of Sin's attacks have long start up and recovery so he can have a hard time in defensive situations.
  • Tension-reliant: Without Tension, Sin's pressure and combos leave much to be desired and don't give him any room to threaten the opponent. In between battles, he has to recover the Tension he spent to remain as a threat throughout a match.
  • Bad Overdrive: Sin cannot combo all 3 hits of his overdrive, leaving it with sub-par damage that is usually outclassed by 8Y.
  • Expensive Army: Sin's army is expensive, so Sin might be forced into engagements to protect his servants if the enemy Master is targeting them.

Lock-off Attacks

Excluding F8X, these moves are bad. Most of them are just worse versions of Sin's locked on attacks. They all deal low damage, and their slowness combined with their low stun means you can't even combo off them most of the time.

90 High Yes Long Side & Jump

The high guard damage makes it useful for quickly performing a guard crush. It can also be useful for servant clear due to it's high damage.

This move has extremely long recovery, so it's important not to whiff it. It can be quite safe to use in big battles, though, as it has a high chance to hit a servant and allow you to cancel from it.

  • Can be canceled for it's entire recovery as long as it hits.

42 Low Yes None Side, Back, & Jump

Good range but slow compared to other characters 5X attacks. If you hit this at it's tip then 5XX will whiff so you will want to go into something else like 5YY, side/back step cancel, or jump cancel with a well spaced j.8X.

In most cases where you need a fast yet short range button 6X takes it's place.

Ground bounces airborne opponents.

5XX

37 Low No None Side & Back

Gets you from 5X to 5XXX.... unless you hit 5XX at tip range then 5XXX will whiff. In this case cancel 5XX into something else like back/side step cancel or 5YY.

5XXX

52 Low No Normal Side, Back, & Jump

Launches the opponent similar to 5YY, but does less damage. Not used very often due to it's shorter range compared to the earlier hits in the string causing it to usually miss if you're where Sin wants to be.

5XX2X

52 Low No None Forward & Back

Sin spins his flag around his left side. Has high damage and good AoE making this move a go to way to meterlessly kill groups of Servants. Only the later portion of the move has a hitbox.

Can gatling The special category of cancels that describe how each character can cancel normals into other normals and specials. into 5X which can gatling back into 4X, this sequence can cancel into itself repeatedly which is great for damaging groups of servants quickly.


4X is also great poke which can catch sidesteps. Just don't throw it out too often as if you get predictable the opponent can jump over it and depending on the matchup that could hurt alot for Sin.

Movement CancelsSome moves can be Jump or Step cancelable. If a move is Step cancelable then it can be Backstep, Sidestep, Forwardstep, or any combination of the three.
30 Low No None Side, Back, & Jump

A quick jab that might whiff on an opponent walking slightly to your left. One of Sin's fastest moves, and still hits quite far away. Useful when you don't need the full range of 5X or need a quicker button.

Since it's jump cancelable it can be used as combo filler between two j.8X in some combos.

2X

Movement CancelsSome moves can be Jump or Step cancelable. If a move is Step cancelable then it can be Backstep, Sidestep, Forwardstep, or any combination of the three.
45 Low Yes Long Forward & Back

A quick sweep that leads to hard knockdown. One of Sin's fastest moves, but it has a very short range. Carries some of Sin's momentum, so it's useful for getting close (by using it after a lock-on dash) or for keeping an opponent from getting close (by using it after a sidestep/backstep).

8X

Damage Damage values here are to Masters. Servants take roughly 200% damage in normal conditions.

Movement CancelsSome moves can be Jump or Step cancelable. If a move is Step cancelable then it can be Backstep, Sidestep, Forwardstep, or any combination of the three.
52 High Yes None Side & Jump

A vaulting kick that covers a great distance. Unsafe on block and can be sidestepped so it is a high risk option in neutral. Needs meter to convert into combos on grounded opponents.

  • Sin is in the air during the move, so it can dodge certain attacks (such as his own Beak Driver)
  • Sometimes used after 5YY (Beak Driver follow up) to juggle and jump cancels into an air combo

55 Low No None None

When hit on an opponent in the air, it will send them away onto the ground. This move is rarely used since you can't extend combos off of it and it doesn't leave Sin in a good place to chase his opponent.

A useful tool in neutral to move around quicker and punish moves from the air, but it doesn't lead into much. Also an important asset in Sin's more advanced combos.

69 Medium No None 10%

Sin's signature attack. This move has incredible range, is completely disjointed, and even beats some projectiles. Leads into a high damage combo using 5YY.

After a blocked Beak Driver Sin can mix between waiting to beat jumping, using 5YY to beat sidesteps, or going for a guardbreak.

This move is strong, but beware it's high tension cost. Careless use of Beak Driver will lead to Sin having no tension.

90 (67) High Yes Normal 10%

A follow up to Beak Driver that creates a sphere of energy which explodes to launch the opponent. Can catch someone trying to sidestep after a blocked Beak Driver, but it has a high recovery and will not hit a jumping player so Sin must be careful with this.

77* High* No None 15%

Orb of dark lightning which stays active for some time. Appears diagonal to Sin forward and in the direction inputted. Useful for destroying the masterghost due to it's high damage without scaling, and because it will protect Sin from enemy servants and masters.

90 Unblockable No None 10%

If Sin is hit while the move is active, he will block it and launch a counterattack. If he doesn't counter anything, he will be left wide open.

This move isn't a true reversal as it has some startup, but it can particularly useful when fighting Ky due to his guardbreak setups generally having space between hits.

  • Costs no tension unless the counterattack comes out
  • When an enemy hits the counter they can still cancel the move into any options available from their attack, meaning if the enemy hits your counter with a jump cancelable attack, they can jump to nullify your followup combo or avoid the attack completely and punish you.

114 (33,27,20,18,16) High* No Normal 10%

Sin stabs with his flag several times. Almost never used due to the high knockback, low untech time, and Sin's long recovery after performing the move almost guaranteeing an escape for the opponent. Routing into j.8X loops tends to give more damage than ending a combo with this attack.

585 (195*3) Medium Yes Launch 100%

Sin performs his version of his Father's Overdrive 'Ride the Lightning'. Sin is inexperienced in combat though and doesn't know what makes an Overdrive useful so R.T.L. is a really bad way to use Sin's Tension compared to his other options.

Unlike Ky who has one big damaging attack, Sin has 3 with less damage which don't connect to each other in any way. Because of the low damage on each hit, it's better and much less costly to use 8Y in most situations.

This move does deal damage to a very high number of servants so it can be useful for damaging a massive group of servants, but it should mostly be used only when near your masterghost to offset the tension cost.

150, 240, 360 Low No None, Normal 10%

Sin takes a small percentage of his own and nearby servants health and fires a beam straight forward. The move powers up it's damage based on how much health it takes from servants (not the number of servants), but has a long startup and recovery.

It's range is significantly further than the effect implies, so it can useful in 2v2s to snipe an enemy master. In 1v1, this skill is usually not as useful because the enemy master will often be too focused on you to get hit by it.

  • Level 3 Phantom Barrel will instantly stun the enemy master allowing for a possible ToD combo.
  • 3 Swordsmen will give level 2
  • 6 Swordsmen will give level 3
