リムルル, Rimururu



Fast and small. Bad pokes makes it hard for Rimururu to get in, but once she does she can run mixups all day. She has a wide variety of (mostly) useful projectiles that may not be the worlds greatest zoning tools, but give her some good keepaway and turtling tactics in addition to being vital to her mixup and okizeme game.


  • Damage taken: 120%
  • Rage duration: 7 seconds
  • Amount to rage: 14
  • Walk speed: 688
  • Backwalk speed: 500
  • Dash speed: 1664
  • Jump duration: 47 frames
  • Width: 12
  • Throw range: 12


Far Slashes

Ss5sp rimururu 5A.png

Good range but not fast or cancelable.

Ss5sp rimururu 5B.png

Slow as hell, but special cancelable during the whole thing.

Ss5sp rimururu 5AB.png

Decent range (for Rimu), so it can be useful as a punisher.

Ss5sp rimururu 2A.png

Fast startup and good on block/hit making it the move you want to tick throw off of.

Ss5sp rimururu 2B.png

Crappy range and speed and special cancelable during the whole thing.

Ss5sp rimururu 2AB.png

Only useful as a lazy punish, not recommended unless you have flashing sword gauge because she has better options.

Near Slashes

Ss5sp rimururu n5A.png

Effectively the same as 2A.

Ss5sp rimururu n5B.png

Fast and special cancelable.

Ss5sp rimururu n5ABa.png
Ss5sp rimururu n5ABb.png

More damage than far AB but no effective use at that range unless you can't go into 623S for some reason.

Ss5sp rimururu n2A.png

Same as far 2A.

Ss5sp rimururu n2B.png

Same as far 2B.

Ss5sp rimururu n2AB.png

Same as far 2AB.


Ss5sp rimururu 5BC.png

One of the best overheads in the game. Has good range and speed. Like most hopping UOHs it hops over lows and knocks down. Cancelable into j.2S during startup.


Ss5sp rimururu 5C.png

Not really good, but can be annoying because she hops forward (meaning airborne) and is pretty safe.

Ss5sp rimururu 6C.png

Fast hits low and special cancelable.

Ss5sp rimururu 2C.png

Fast and hits low.

Ss5sp rimururu 3C.png
3C: Not fast but good range and 8BC cancelable for auto-combo. Low hit.


Ss5sp rimururu jA.png
Ss5sp rimururu jB.png

You may want to use this over j.AB for air to air if you weren't very preemptive and they aren't low enough for j.C.

Ss5sp rimururu jAB.png

The move you generally use. Alright hitbox but not anything like Rera's.

Ss5sp rimururu jC.png

Good move because it's fast and persists the whole time you're in the air.


Ss5sp rimururu 66A.png

Shouldn't be used, basically a bad version of her far 5A.

Ss5sp rimururu 66B.png

Frame advantage on hit safe on block.

Ss5sp rimururu 66ABa.png
Ss5sp rimururu 66ABb.png

This knockdown slash is more or less her bread and butter attack in combination with other setups. It's fast enough and damaging enough, and has a hitbox that easily hits people well above her head. If they get frozen by ice, hit them with this. If they jump over an icicle, just dash under them and hit them with this on the crossup. It's almost too easy.

Ss5sp rimururu 66C.png

Really weird auto combo move that isn't much of a combo and also very slow, you can j.2S after it though. Generally useless because after the incredibly weak kicks, she floats backward and some characters can punish her at that point, either with or without you using the j.2S.


Ss5sp rimururu u5S.png

Mid 2 finger poke.

Ss5sp rimururu u2S.png

Low 2 finger poke, neutral on block (!).

Ss5sp rimururu ujS.png

Standard airborne jab with low active frames.

Ss5sp rimururu u66S.png

Good range and speed and also gives knockdown so you can small pursuit or retrieve your weapon.

Ss5sp rimururu u66C.png

A thousand times better than the armed version. It's fast and knocks down so you can follow up with a heavy pursuit for undeserving damage.

Ss5sp rimururu u66BC.png

Butt launch to the face. Hits overhead and knocks down, doing less damage than a regular 2A. No real reason to use this instead of 5BC, except maybe for a laugh or, of course, humiliation. With full rage, Rimu keeps stumbling like crazy for more damage and hits, but the move loses its "High" property, now hitting mid instead.

Ss5sp rimururu u66AC.png

Kamikaze dive with pretty much the same properties as u.66BC.


Ss5sp rimururu 216D.png
Deflect - 216D:
Ss5sp rimururu wpickup.png
Weapon Pickup - 5A:
Ss5sp rimururu 3xstart.png
Taunt Disarm - Start Start Start:
Occasionally used as a real tactic by people who prefer the unarmed moveset. The weapon can also do damage to opponents on the ground, but usually only if they don't bother to ever press a button after a knockdown.
Ss5sp rimururu wjump.png
Sankaku Tobi - j.9 or j.3 near wall:
Wall jump. May be performed before or after j.2S.


Generally speaking Rimururu may only have out one projectile at a time. All of her projectiles will persist upon getting hit.

Ss5sp rimururu j2S.png
Konru Shirar - j.2S (at apex): (can be used unarmed)
Rimu squats on an ice platform for a period of time before it falls down. She can jump off in any direction. The icicle persists for a while after being jumped off of, before falling to the floor. Hits high regardless of position and can be used to cross up. If she doesn't jump off the platform before it falls down she will get knocked down. She is easily punished in this state after the icicle has fallen.
The move counts as a projectile and will generally stuff attempts to jump up and hit you while you are on it automatically. It is however possible to hit her while she stands on this. This move can be performed off a regular jump, wall jump, backdash, 5BC startup, and 66C recovery.
Nidan Jump: 7 or 9
You can still wall jump as you would normally after this jump.
Ss5sp rimururu 236A.png
Ss5sp rimururu 236AB.png
Rupush Kuare - 236S: (can be used unarmed)
  • Nishi - 236A/B:
Rimu tosses out an ice-ball that either travels a short (A version) or long (B version) distance before landing and blossoming into an ice flower. The ice flower stays around for some time, and freezes on hit for a brief moment allowing you to followup with a combo. This move is a staple in Rimus oki and very useful at neutral as well.
  • ToiToi - 236AB:
Unlike the A and B ver this one will roll across the screen for a long period of time. It will blossom when it connects with something. Otherwise, it crystallize in the corner of the screen. This move is useful for providing ground pressure, and combined with the anti-air hitbox of 66AB makes for a powerful setup. Beware of characters who can hop over the ice with their ground attacks.
Ss5sp rimururu 214S.png
Konru Mem - 214S: (can be used unarmed)
Hits low, but terrible startup and recovery make this move virtually useless as she can't use her other ice summon moves while it is out.
Ss5sp rimururu 623S.png
Konru Nonno - 623S: (can be used unarmed)
Rimu crouches and summons a giant ice flower in front of her that will rise vertically until it leaves the screen. This move is very strong anti air and air control (especially against an opponent jumping in the corner). If you are feeling daring you can throw it out as a "DP" because it will trade in your favor, however it's very unsafe if you fail.
Ss5sp rimururu 421Sa.png
Ss5sp rimururu 421Sb.png
Kamui Shituki - 421S: (can be used unarmed)
Summons an ice mirror a short distance in front of rimu that will persist for awhile and then turn into a spike and move forward as a second attack. This is the move you want to use most of the time as a reversal as it's generally very safe, however getting it to hit right is tricky and generally it will just reset you to a neutral-ish situation.
Touching this on the ground will freeze them for almost no damage, and resets situation to more or less neutral. However, a select number of attacks can penetrate this mirror to hit her, or trade with it, which is just as bad since it does almost no damage.
The real motivation to use the mirror is for its anti-air properties. Touching the upper rim of the mirror will cause a knockdown that can be chained with 8BC for fantastic damage.
More rarely, the spike that comes out of the mirror will actually hit them. This will usually happen when they are in mid-air, as the spike attack telegraphs like no other. The spike does a really good amount of damage if it actually hits.
Even more rarely, the mirror will actually "deflect" a deflectable attack, and the spike will then hit them for high damage.
Ss5sp rimururu 6SSSa.png
Ss5sp rimururu 6SSSb.png
Upon Op - 6+Tap S Rapidly: (can be used unarmed)
Extremely long startup and punishable recovery makes this move very bad. However it does do decent chip damage, and that's really its only use. You can actually use this while she has another projectile out, even though it is a projectile. The A version has semi-decent startup and does a very surprising amount of chip damage.
Ss5sp rimururu 236CD.png
Rupush Kamui Emush (Toitoi) - 236CD - WFT: (can be used unarmed)
Summons a giant ice cube and then pushes it across the entire screen. The initial placement is an attack that freezes the opponent and the pushing part of the attack knocks down. Can be used to anti air terrible jump attempts, and punish highly unsafe stuff. It's terrible to have this move blocked anywhere near you but it can be safe from further out.


Staple combos:

  • [5B or c.5B or 2B or c.2B] xx 623AB 8BC
  • 66B c.5B xx 623S 8BC
  • 6C xx 623S 8BC
  • 3C xx 8BC
  • 2AB 2BC

Situational stuff that can be useful:

  • Antiair [236A or 236B] [8BC or 5AB or 66AB etc...]
  • Unarmed 66C xx 8BC (low)
  • Fullscreen 236AB 214CD
  • 236A Rage Explosion (unblockable, can't follow up)

236A Setups:

  • 236A [2C or hop over or whatever] into 66B link combo
  • 236A [whatever] [any B attack] 623S 8BC
  • 236A [whatever] 5BC

State of Nothingness:

  • Whatever into 5AB into issen generally gives you the best damage, replace 5AB with a B level attack if you don't have much meter.
  • You can also combo a 236S freeze into a SoN combo.


Neutral Game

While Rimururu has a wide variety of projectiles in her arsenal, because she has stubby limbs she generally has a hard time getting in on the opponent. You should try your best to play patiently and pester them with 236S. You can sneak in a slower 236AB here and there, meaning they will either have to jump or let you in, and you can preempt the jump with a j.AB. j.2S is useful for keeping other people out and ticking the clock, and being annoying in general. Always be watching for a jump because Rimu's 623S is a very strong anti air and can turn the tide in your favor very quickly. Using 412S at the right time can mean the difference between life and death, and avoiding any other characters close up game. But be careful because trading with heavies is almost never in your favor.


Midscreen you can toss a 236S (depending on how you think they will roll) and followup accordingly. If they choose not to roll midscreen you can 236A > 6D/4D crossup mixup.

In the corner the opponent is forced to either wake up into a 236A or roll just in front of it. If they roll forward the ice flower will persist for awhile so you can pressure relatively safeley until it goes away or you push them into it. If they wake up into it you can go into throw/low/overhead mixups.
