Yukina Himeragi (姫柊雪菜)
No senpai, this is our holy war!

Introduction

Sword Shaman and classmate of Kojou sent to observe the Fourth Progenitor. She wields a lance called Sekkarou that can destroy even an elder vampire.

Originally from the light novel series Strike the Blood.

Gameplay

Yukina is a lance wielder with impressive range and control of mid-range combat. In exchange, the start-up of her moves trend toward the slower end. Her air normals, combined with three available jumps and a Climax Art Super that can be activated in mid-air, give her commendable command of the air. Yukina's most unique ability is her Potential, which eliminates the pushblock effects of Reflection Guard for 20 seconds when active. In this state, Yukina can comfortably play in close quarters and frustrate the opponent.

Yukina Gameplay Sample

Pros

  • Excels at mid-range with her far-reaching ground normals, forcing most foes to take to the air to approach her, where she has parity or greater.
  • Relatively reliable anti-air with 2C, checking how opponents approach past her lance
  • Extremely powerful Potential ability that eliminates the opponent’s strongest defensive option
  • Unique air-enabled Climax Art makes every stray air conversion a potentially devastating confirm
  • Has access to three jumps

Cons

  • Run speed and frame data are on the slower side
  • Can struggle against zoners as well as fast rushdown characters
  • Special moves are overall mediocre without the threat of resources (Meter, Blast, Assist call)
  • Can appear underwhelming without Potential active

Recommended Assists

Celty - Celty is part neutral tool and part setplay staple. 5S is a giant hitbox in front of you that zooms across the screen with only 10 frame start-up. It's great for scrambles, mid-screen stand-offs, and quick punishes into hard knockdown. For Yukina, it also provides an extra threat behind her 236X > X string. 6S is a giant anti-air bike that hits twice to afford you two opportunities to run cross-ups or tick throws.

Dokuro - Dokuro-chan is both a powerful neutral tool and a damaging combo extender. 5S is DFCI's greatest anti-air, covering the entire vertical space two character lengths in front of you. This is perfect for catching jump-outs on your offense, and clipping jump-happy opponents on your defense. 6S is a full-screen projectile. Just in case.

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.

Potentials

Universal Potential: Increases damage dealt by 10% for 20 seconds when health falls under 30%. If behind in rounds won, increases damage dealt by 20% instead.

Character Potential: Use 2 EX Special Attacks to disable the opponent's use of Reflection Guard (while the pushback effect is negated, it is still possible for the opponent to use Reflection Guard to avoid air unblockable attacks) for 20 seconds. Can be activated once a round.

214X
DFC.Yukina.214X.jpg
Version Damage Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv Cancels Guard Hitbox
A 700 21 11 26 -10 or worse SC, EX, CAC HLA -

Yukina rises into the air and lunges forward with her spear. When Yukina reaches the apex of her hop, you can cancel that animation into the A, B, or C follow-ups immediately on hit or on whiff. You can also use the follow-ups after lunging forward from 214X.

Version Damage Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv Cancels Guard Hitbox
B 700 23 13 31 -15 or worse SC, EX, CAC HLA -

Nearly identical to the A version, but Yukina rises to roughly the opponent's head's height before lunging.

Version Damage Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv Cancels Guard Hitbox
C 700 25 15 34 -15 or worse SC, EX, CAC HLA -

Yukina rises to about her jump height before lunging forward with her spear. Technically only hits airborne opponents.

Version Damage Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv Cancels Guard Hitbox
EX 1457 12 9 49 -5 SC, CAC HLA -

The move starts similar to the B version, but Yukina will always follow up with Kahou Tosshin. The follow up creates a large ground shockwave surrounding Yukina.

  • Adds 10% to Burst meter on execution, regardless of hit/block/whiff

A downward pierce usable on hit or whiff on 214X. The B version is active roughly at head height, whereas the C version rises further up before Yukina strikes downward. Fully charging the move provides frame advantage on block.

Damage Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv Cancels Guard Hitbox
3000 25 3 51 -27 N/A H -

Yukina slashes downward with her spear, sending the opponent flying. Both an overhead and air unblockable move, as with all trumps.

  • Has a bit of a slow startup
  • Best used as a combo ender after you've activated her character potential
  • Vertical deadzone right above her, not the best anti-air in the world
  • Around same range as 5C

Yukina jumps into the air and does a crescent slash- if it connects she does a brief incantation followed by a rising slash

  • Not safe on block, use only as a combo ender
  • Can be performed in the air

Sacred Howling
「雪霞繚乱 -セイクリッド・ハウリング-」

63214B+C
DFC.Yukina.62314BC.jpg
Damage Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv Cancels Guard Hitbox

Combos

Midscreen

5A/2A Starter

  • Note: You can always trump after any of the 214/j.236EXs to either do extra damage and/or activate the trump+potential combo
  • Note: These also work in the corner
  • Note: (2A >) simply indicates that if you do start 2A, follow-up with 5A afterwards. It still works.
(2A >) 5A > 5B > j.A > j.B > j.C > jc > j.A > j.B > j.C > 5A > 5B > 5C > 236C > C
  • Standard BnB on standing opponents. Can go into EX and Climax Art after Wild Strike
  • You have to delay the second j.A slightly to get this combo to work
  • Can work with 2A starter
(2A >) 5A > 5B > j.A > j.B > j.C > 5A > 5B > 5C > 236C > C
  • Same premise, but without the second jump cancel
(2A >) 5A > 5B > 5C > 5A+B > j.236EX > 5B > 2C > 5A+B > 214EX
  • Uses two to four bars, depending on if you choose to Climax Art or not. Optimal damage +/- 100 damage
(2A >) 5A > 5B > 5C > 236C > C > Combo Blast > 2C > 5A+B > 214EX
  • Standard follow-up after combo blast, if need be

Throw Starter

6C > 214A+B
  • Best used to activate potential or trump
6C > 214A+B > 41236B+C
  • If you can kill, go for it, but the scaling is pretty bad

4A+B Starter

4AB > C > j.B > j.C > jc > j.B > j.C > jc > j.C > j.236A
  • You can use EX j.236 for a hard knockdown after the j.236A if you have the meter

Corner
