    Do we know whether her moves are motions or charge?

    She squatted before a super, so that's a double circular motion on the super.

    I get strong sf4 Juri vibes from her. Mid-range projectile pressure+combos requiring a bit of setup, a teleport-counter, no wake-up...

    If she sends out the orb just behind Guile, then counter-teleports behind him, does the orb move as well or stay planted? Can it attack while she recovers from the teleport?

    True, but is more than that, it is also the dancing and hips shaking, things that Amakusa lacks.

    Sigh... hope her drill is plus on block. I miss Rose close st.mk, avoid lows, grabs, combos on counter hit and safe on block.
    She definitely won't be a fast pace character, but reflect, drill and orbs will give us alot of pressure..
    Friend or foe!!!

    Anyone think she'll have a 3f and/or reversal? She's looking to have that sort of weakness. Has an air drill though which is nice.

    Thank god for that! Enough melons in SFV...

    They usually don't give characters with far range game as good as Menat 4 frame buttons. The closest things mid range/zoners in this game like Urien, Nash, Guile, Sim and Birdie all have 4 frame buttons. She has too much ranged options for them to give her a 3 frame. Especially with the anime trap stuff that forces people to play defensively even when she's close to them. You can't projectile invincible attack through a fireball that hits you in the back. That's part of why Morrigan is so ridiculous in Marvel 3.


    I see her ending up like Guile or Urien with 4 frame lights and a good EX reversal (Guile) or a slow/riskier EX reversal (Urien). Not sure if she has the mix up and movement to warrant going full Nash/Sim on her defensive options (4 frames with nothing full invincible outside super).

    Ain't nothin, Capcom's ruthless still producin.  Cut em a check or find yoself toothless.  Keep it shill with no confusin.  Niggas say I'm shill...they ain't hard I can prove it YEEEAH

    From the blog post:
    Menat is an apprentice of a famous Fortune teller that lives in Italy. The techniques she was taught revolve around her crystal sphere, which she controls with her soul power. This power lets her extend the base of her attacks, giving her a fortunate advantage at longer ranges. She is also able to send it out at the opponent to disrupt attacks, where she can later call it back. While the crystal sphere is out, she can cancel any normal attack and her V-Skill into Soul Sphere: Ankh, calling the crystal ball back to her, greatly increasing her combo potential.

    V-Skill : Soul Reflect - Kamal


    Produce a shock wave attack from her soul power. While the crystal sphere is retracted, this lets her reflect the average projectile back at the opponent. If the crystal ball was sent out into battle prior to using her V-Skill, this will absorb the projectile to help build up her v-gauge. This can also be used to launch the opponent into the air to help extend combos.

    V-Trigger: Wisdom of Thoth


    Menat summons six spheres with her soul power andeach sphere is linked to her normal attacks. Pressing and releasing of a normal attack sends the sphere linked to that attack flying at the opponent.

    Critical Art: The Nefertem

    Menat sends her crystal sphere to bind her soul power with the opponent to deal devastating damage.

    Mastering this fortune teller is dependent on knowing when to use her crystal sphere to keep her opponents at bay, and when to unleash it to create unpredictable mixups.

    It's probably a mix of trying to imitate ancient Egyptian hairstyle and SFV hair physics being what they are.

    99% of people will drop her in a few days. She looks much more complex than most characters.

    And on top of that she looks slow and will probably have no reversal.

    I give @TWINBLADES 30 minutes before he drops her

    Did I drop Kolin?

    Does Kolin have two stances and negative edge combos? Yeah, you guessed right...

    Someone said she is laying down in the silhouette, but its hard to see what would cause the cat ears. Maybe a sleeve? Depends on the pose.

    Bayonetta's silhouette has wings. I think it's just a Japanese Dev meme.

    I do like any detail about her so far, except that fact she did'nt get her own stage. C'mon, she's a freaking Egyption! What a waste from you, Capcom.

    I expected her to be 950 health. Which means her damage could actually be decent

    From what I understood from that presentation, as long as Menat hasn't used her sphere she might have Dhalsim-like normals thanks to that crystal ball. She loses reach when she uses Soul Sphere, but she's able to recall the sphere whenever she wants.

    (Most) scrubs don't like zoning / long-range characters. I may end up liking this character.
    Me firing this game up for such terrible reasons...
