An ancient biological form known as Autonomic Nerves. They've existed for as long as we know, arguably an eternity, and emerge during the Hollow Night as its enforcers. She is one of them. On this Hollow Night, she detects an abnormal number of EXS levels, and awakens. Once awake, she wanders the Night as her program deems fit, making her way towards the Abyss. Her mission, to determine the source of the disturbance in EXS and eliminate it. But to her, Voids and In-Births are all enemies.
Neither one of us is a human...
Vatista has tools to be a threat at any range of the screen and many more options to dominate mid range space. She can play aggressively or turtle up, but for best results, vary it up between the two. Be annoying. Force your opponents to take risks and punish them for overextending.
- Close range: High/low oki with her Crystals and Overhead Drill (2B)
- Mid range: 2B(B), 5C, 2C, Dash C, jC, 2FF, Crystal space control.
- Far range: Fireballs 6x and Lazers (14f full screen hitbox)
Pester your opponent and make space with jump back B Fireball, or use the slow fireball to delay your opponent's advance and set up a Crystal mine field. Opponents must approach cautiously as getting tagged by an errant explosion is easily hit confirmable for 3k+ damage. Mid range normals can also be used to push opponents out to set up more crystals. If they become passive, you can sit behind your Crystal fortress and concentrate for GRD; otherwise a slow fireball will let you set up a crystal for a high/low mixup, using the explosion to obscure your attack. The same applies for oki.
