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.
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.

- Cheap combo fodder. Synergises with 5D and j.D. Can be used in pressure due to Sword Arthur’s pushback and kit of large normals.
- Okizeme after auto combo and 5D enders
- Sword Arthur’s large normals can be used to combo off Galahad in neutral. Can elemental counter with j.D for strong air confirms and can be used to combo off DP.

- 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
