Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax/DFCI/Taiga Aisaka
Though adorable, her unpleasant personality has earned her the nickname "Palm-top Tiger". Acts tough, but actually clumsy and a big crybaby.
Originally from the light novel series Toradora!
Taiga is an offensive powerhouse that rushes headfirst with her run speed and normals to make quick work of her enemies. Her toolset is well-rounded and bears no particular weakness. She wields various objects that make her moves deceptively large and her ability to corner carry is among the best in the game. Her Red Trump Card is the only one that is unpunishable on block. It is a full screen projectile that is air unblockable and overhead. In addition, her specials are among the better ones in utility for both neutral and combos.
- Excellent normals and special moves to remain on the offensive, especially 236X to check respect
- Versatile Red Trump Card with low risk and high reward
- 5[C] is a built in anti air and throw OS. It also boasts impressive range and active frames
- Good affinity with most assists
- Some difficulty with zoner characters
- Can be overwhelmed by characters that outrange her in melee combat
- Resource hog. She needs resources to remain a threat and can cause new players to overextend
Mashiro - Mashiro serves as both a potent neutral tool and potentially terrifying setplay. 5S unleashes a murder of baumkuchen that fiendishly roll forward, serving as a projectile to front your approach or as a combo extender. 6S sets out four cats that serve as both ample tick throw and high-low set-ups as well as checks against the opponent's movement and pokes as you close in.
Iriya - 5S gives you a plate projectile to use for setplay or to help you close in on opponents. 6S is a moped that can be used to punish Blasts or whiffed attacks and force out air options from the foe. Plates give Taiga setplay off every knockdown and give her a more threatening midscreen game. Iriya's tools complement Taiga's kit splendidly.
Zero - Zero is a counter assist with setplay capabilities, rolled into one. Furthermore, her 5S can act as a Guard Thrust or Dead Angle for the cost of 2 Meter. 5S is a counter that wallbounces the opponent on contact and checks the opponent’s pokes. 6S is a vine projectile that can be used for cross-up mix-ups and as a combo extender.
