When he was a child, Arthur Blade Protector was beaten to within an inch of his life by a larger, stronger child. Wanting to ensure that no other innocents be subject to such an injustice he vowed that one day he too would have abs. Finally, that day has come.

Overview

Arthur Blade Protector is a powerful and versatile character capable of adapting his play style to force any opponent into a situation they don't want to deal with. BP is the resident "protagonist" character archetype with fireballs, dps, and a very balanced gameplan. However unlike a lot of similar characters BP manages to carve a niche for himself with some of the scariest reversal options in the game and immense damage off of almost everything. His well toned abs serve as an impenetrable wall of steel, punishing jumpins, nullifying projectiles, and utterly destroying anyone who dares try using a "meaty" or "frame trap". Defense isn't his only strength though. His move set is perfect for holding down neutral with long buttons and VERY plus fireballs, and his pressure isn't bad either. He's got almost every offensive option you can think of, and once he gets started you aren't going to get back to neutral without taking a lot of damage. His biggest strength, however, is his ability to turn any form of resources into absolutely massive amounts of damage with virtually no execution barrier. He can turn a 2A into 7.4k damage with 1 mana and half a bar of meter through what is effectively mashing A. If he's being optimal, he can easily take over half a character's health in a single combo.

Normal Moves

5A

Jump cancelable. Fairly standard jab, slower than 2A but will catch jump outs.


5AA

Because Blade Protector moves forward this move helps his auto combo hit consistently at further ranges.


5AAA

Hits overhead, there's a gap in the auto combo on block and Blade protector lacks a good low option to make this a strong mix-up, but it's there.

Technically a special move for the purposes of assist cancels, the final hit of this move gives Blade Protector a big chunk of meter. End combos with this or keep mashing A for super.


5B

- - 10f (12f for second hit) - - -14 -

Jump cancelable. Air unblockable. 2 htis. Good range especially for a 6C, doesn't launch on grounded hit like most 6Cs but it does cancel into 6B, 2B, 2C on block/hit.

Blade protector moves forward slightly when he swings his sword. Range isn't as good as 6B, but better than 5B.

Pretty good hitbox, crosses up, hits some standing opponents so can be used after a deep j.C for instant overheads against everyone but Koume, nimue, and bisclavret


j.B

Decent horizontal range, about even with 2B, good for poking without getting too close and confirms into j.D at most ranges for conversions.

Slow but a big hitbox covering Blade Protector. Good jump in for meaties or when the opponent is locked down.

The first hit can cross up in very specific situations, and the vacuum effect picks up off of this. Gives hard knockdown even if canceled/interrupted. Can supposedly be converted without resources at weird spacings. Very unsafe on block.

Grab 'n Stab. Although it is your fastest air option, the range is very short compared to all your other options so it can be hard to use. Mostly sees use in air scrambles or as quick punishes for people who try getting cute.

A version is plus at point blank. B version can be used to make blockstrings safe in most situations. C version can cause opponents to flip out of combos which can be used to go for cheeky resets. Projectile speed varies with version used, A is the slowest and C is the fastest.

Knocks the enemy fullscreen and causes wallbounce. Not as useful as other anime protags' similar DP followups. While you don't get hard knockdown you can sometimes start pressure off of this.

Command grab. Can be converted into combo afterwards without resources. Very short range. Shares the same whiff animation as your normal throw, but it takes much longer.

Stab forward at just over half screen length with your sword. No invuln, but this move has a massive hitbox and shrinks your hurtbox a lot, so it's usable as a galaxy brain anti air or to just beat out a lot of stuff it really, REALLY shouldn't.

DP super, so frame 1 invuln. Just your normal DP except really big and multihitting. Funny enough, this means you almost always want to hit it grounded, as it will lose most of it's damage against airborne opponents because a lot of it's hits will whiff.

Run almost 75% of the screen, shouldercheck someone, then murder the hell outta them! Thanks to his rock hard abs BP is completely invulnerable from frame 1 until the shouldercheck hits, which makes this one of the scariest reversals in the entire game. The first hit can OTG, however this will do a single, pitiful hit and nothing else, so be very careful confirming this off of jD. The only bad part of this move is that you don't get hard knockdown after it.


Combos

Solo Combos

  • 5AAAA(A)
Blade Protector's Auto Combo is one of the best in the game, it's good damage and good meter build. You have to be careful on block as there's a gap between the 2nd and 3rd hits, but also it's small enough that it can frame trap and 5AAA hits overhead so sometimes you can catch people mashing and/or sleeping
  • Confirm > 5D > 236XX/214XX
Solo option off of 5D, good for when you have a stray hit and aren't sure what to do. Blade Protector's level 2 super goes very far, it will combo in almost any situation that looks like it could.
  • 63214D > 9 > j.A > j.B > j.C > j.D
Combo off of command grab. Blade Protector's command grab is his main mix-up tool so being able to get a stable knockdown without resources is important
  • 623X > A+B+C > j.A > j.B > j.C > j.D
Combo off of DP, this is less for the damage and more for DP > enchant boost being safe on block. If you know it's gonna hit you can do the DP followup in the corner for extra damage.

  • Confirm > 5D > evaine assist > dash > 5AAAA(A)
Combo from 5D into auto combo, end before the super to conserve meter

  • j.D > elle assist > dash > 5AAAA(A)
Combo from j.D into auto combo, works off of most confirms into j.D but not especially ported ones like command grab starter
