Profile

  • Name: Nitou Arthur (romaji), Twinblade Arthur (localization)
  • JP Name: 二刀アーサー
  • Voice Actor: Arthur Lounsbery
  • Element: Fire
  • Health: 21500

Nitou spent all his money on swords and belts so now he really needs to win the Arcana Blood tournament to make rent this month.

Overview

The neutral character. Extremely large oppressive normals, great stagger pressure with decent mixup and good combo consistency. Twinblade shines in the ability to carry opponents across the screen and can guarantee a corner with his super.

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Has the largest normals in the game
  • Decent mixup with 236D and rekka>assist cancels
  • Good stagger pressure
  • Insane corner carry, Can guarantee corner with super at any time
  • Projectile super can beat other projectiles
  • Can combo off throw meterless
  • Frame data on block isn't great
  • Can struggle to get knockdowns on some air confirms
  • Anti-air is slow and doesn't reach particularly high
  • Consistent but not high damage

Recommended Support Knights

  • Mage-Guild Arthur
All-round good assist with fast startup and good horizontal range. Nitou can confirm off stray grounded hits easily with his large normals
Ice Element and forced untechable knockdown makes this a great confirm or combo stabiliser off Nitou's fire attacks
Can be used in EB routes after Mordred in the corner into an untechable knockdown for followup supers
Good for confirms off rising overhead j.A
  • Balin
Great neutral assist for many situations. Can be used as a pseudo-anti-air, anti-approach, neutral control and many more.
Good frame advantage and low pushback makes Balin great for forcing mixup situations from Nitou's specials that force him in the air
  • Mordred
Used to maximise damage, mainly with Enchant Boost combos

Nitou slashes downwards with his sword

Nitou swings twice, first with the animation of 5B then 5C

  • Auto-combo filler
  • Does not float airborne opponents and may lead to unintended knockdowns on hit
  • Best avoid using this attack outside of combos

1400 All 11 - - -17 - - -

Nitou dashes forward with his swords, performing the first hit of his rekka series

  • Auto-combo filler
  • Incredibly unsafe on block
  • Committing to this uses the auto-combo version of the rekka. Avoid using this on high scaled combos as the knockdown will not connect.

Nitou swings his sword upwards, performing the second hit of his rekka series

  • Auto-combo filler

Nitou performs an underhanded poke with his sword

  • Good balance of range and speed making it a fairly decent poke button
  • Jump cancellable

2000 All 14 - - -11 - - -

Nitou steps forward and does a large lunging slash

  • Reaches incredibly far making it a great poke button and easily confirmable into his rekka series
  • Punishable on block and with only spaced 5D being a safe cancel, care is required when throwing this button out. Fortunately it's lunging nature makes it hard to be punished when used from range
  • Great button for hit confirming as the forward movement can stabilise combos quite easily

1600 All 11 - - -5 - - -

Nitou steps forward and performs a back handed slash with his sword

  • Reaches incredibly far, just short of 5C range
  • Great for poking as it is safe and can easily be hit confirmed into 5C at any range
  • Its large range and input can be used as an option select to potentially catch roll outs in pressure by inputting 4B

1600 All 15 - - -5 - - -

Nitou swings his sword upwards

  • Dedicated anti-air button. Air unblockable if the opponent is in a neutral state
  • Launches opponent on hit
  • With a vertical hitbox that is shorter than almost all other characters, slower startu and a forward step movement, it makes this a relatively poor anti-air compared to other characters
  • Longer startup makes this great for safely anti-airing committed jump-ins

Nitou strikes twice with his sword

  • Can't be cancelled into itself
  • Both hits will always come out if not cancelled
  • Standard jab but the double-hits may make this risky to throw out in neutral because of its long commitment frames

Nitou sticks his leg out and kicks horizontally in front of him

  • Good air to air
  • Not much vertical range making this a poor jump-in
  • Can be used as a crossup but the reverse hitbox is not large and unreliable

Nitou swings diagonally with both his swords

  • Jump-in normal of choice

Nitou smashes his sword down creating a wall of flames in front of him.

  • Launches on hit
  • Two-hit attack. The first hit is a strike at close range. The second hit is the flames which is considered a projectile.
  • If only the flames connect, it can not be cancelled on block
  • With its incredibly large size, this attack is great at controlling space and shutting down approaches both horizontally and vertically.
  • Long animation frames can make this attack susceptible to roll dodging

Nitou slashes his sword with the power of flames

  • Launches the opponent on hit
  • Good horizontal hitbox makes this a competent air-to-air but its long startup may sometimes hamper it
  • Significant block makes this a great jump-in button however the downwards hitbox is a bit lacking
  • When hitting extremely deep, Nitou can perform an instant overhead with rising j.A

  • Different version of the grounded DP alter the height at which Nitou rises to. All aerial versions are identical
  • B is invulnerable from 1-10, C is invulnerable from 1-12
  • From his rekka series, this can be used as a solid blockstring to put Nitou airborne for a Support/Enchant cancel

Nitou jumps into the sky before coming down diagonally with a flaming kick, knocking down the opponent

  • Puts Nitou airborne, allowing him to support/enchant cancel for a high/low mixup
  • The airborne version travels a short distance and will travel significantly further if the attack successfully connects
  • Significant untechable time on hit and is Nitou's main way to get a knockdown
  • Knocks down the opponent at a horizontal angle. At high heights or scaling, this can fail to cause a knockdown
  • Connected the grounded version on an aerial opponent in the corner can allow a followup combo

7000 All 1+6 - - -62 - - -

Nitou does a rising stab into his opponent before blasting them with lightning

  • Reversal super however due to only being cancellable into 3 mana supports and the obvious super flash, using his meterless reversal is far more desireable
  • Higher damage and its rising hitbox make it overall better combo fodder than Piercing Buster but it allows the opponent to air tech very high in the air

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Frame Adv Starter Scaling Combo Scaling Element
10000 All 1+18 - - -11 - - -

Nitou spins his swords in his hands before stabbing the opponent. Upon successful hit, Nitou will enter a long animation and punch them with a powerful attack

  • Slow startup can make this hard to combo into on some routes
  • Long animation time makes this great when recovering mana as it will recover approximately two mana during the animation
  • The first hit is not fire element and will break element chains. The last hit is fire and will do a little bit of bonus damage

Combos

Nitou's basic corner combo theory is as follows:

  • 1 Hit > 236C x 2 > 5AAA > 236C x3
  • 2 Hit > 236C x 2 > 5AAC > 236C x 3
  • 3 Hit > 236C x 2 > 5AA > 236C x3
  • 4 Hit > 236C x 2 > 5A > 236Ax3

Depending on the number of hits that it takes to confirm, the rest of the combo will change slightly.

  • 2A2AAAAA > 5A > 236A
Auto combo confirm.

Solo Combos

  • 2A > 2A > 5B > 2B > 6B > 5C > 236C x3 (4183)
This is the standard Nitou combo. It does 4183 damage and builds 41 meter.
  • 2A > 2AAAAA > 236C (3615)
This combo does not do nearly as much damage as the previous route but builds 13 more meter (54 total).
  • 2A > 2AA > 6C > hj.C > dl j.D > 66 > 5AA > 2C > 236C x2 (4105)
Nitou's corner carry route. It does similar damage to his basic route and builds the same amount of meter (41), but carries the opponent nearly full screen.
  • 2AA 6C j.C delay j.D dash sj.B j.C j.236D
Corner to corner carry route
  • 63214D dash 5A 6C sj.C delay j.D dash sj.B j.C j.236D

or
  • 6C > j.C > dl j.D > 66 > 5AA > 2C > 236Cx3
Use these routes when anti airing an opponent lower to the ground.

j.D Starter

Combos from jump in j.D

  • j.D > 66 > 5AA > 2C > 236C x3
Standard j.D confirm. Similar to the corner carry route.
  • j.D > 66 > 5C > 236C x3
This route does a bit more damage (~300) than the previous confirm.
  • j.D > 66 > 6BC > 236D > 5BC > 236Cx3
This route does 1000 more damage than the previous route, but the corner is required after 236D.

Throw Starters

These combos require Nitou to throw his opponent into the corner.

  • Throw > 5A > 5B > j.C > dl j.D > 5AAA > 236x3
Basic corner throw combo.
  • Throw > 5A6C > hj.C > dl j.D > 236D > 6B5C > 236Cx3
Increases damage slightly, but harder execution.
  • Throw > 5AC > 236D > 6B5C > 236C > 214A+B
Super ender
  • Throw > 5ABC > 236D > 6BC > 236Cx3
