A thread dedicated to all things Skarlet! Let’s pick each others brains and discuss Skarlet related things here!
:d: :f: FP, Dagger Toss: Skarlet throws two quick projectiles forward. You can delay the second shot by holding FP, and even dash out of it by hitting :f::f: or while holding the dagger. EX version throws the daggers faster.
:d: :f: RP, Up Slash: Much like the name says, Skarlet unsheaths one of her ninja blades and slashes upwards, lauching the enemy, much like Nightwolf’s Tomahawk. It’s slightly slower to start up, but it’s still pretty easy to combo into. You can also combo multiple Up Slash’s a lot better than Nightwolf can.
:d: RP, Down Slash: A very slow power slash downwards that ground bounces. May be too early to tell, but I find Up Slash more useful.
:d: :f: FK, Red Dash: A command dash that moves Skarlet forward quickly, like Reptile’s Acid Slide. You can followup with BK during the dash to do a low attack that knocks the opponent down, or hit BP to make her cancel her Red Dash into Down Slash, or :f: BP to cancel into Up Slash.
:f: :d: FP, Blood Ball: Skarlet cuts her stomach and throws a bloody orb at the opponent like a grenade. Does very good damage for a single projectile, around 17%, but it takes Skarlet’s health to do so. Has no EX version. You can use :u: or :d: to alter the Blood Ball’s tradjectory.
Air Daggers, :d: :f: FP/ :d: FP: Skarlet throws her ninja daggers… in the air. The Down-foward flavour fires the dart straight ahead, the down-back one throws a dagger down at Skarlet’s feet. Both EX flavours throw 3 daggers; one straight ahead, one down at a 45 degree angle and one down. EX is pretty good for zoning.
:d: RK, Blood Drop: Skarlet dissapears in a mist of blood and drops down on her opponent’s position, no matter where they are, much like Quan Chi’s Sky Drop. Her drop is slower, however, but you can do it in the air and combo if off jump in kicks or nuetral jump punches. EX does more damage and looks more brutal (also like Quan Chi’s).
X Ray, Blood Bank: Skarlet twirls forward with blades at hand, if she connects she uses her palm to break her opponent’s nose, than takes a step back and uses her high heeled boot to deliver a painful kick that drives the stiletto right into her opponent’s eye socket.
The range on Blood Bank is very good, you can even hit enemies who are behind you thanks to it’s crazy hitbox. Using it after launching with Up Slash is an easy way to land this X Ray.
