Feel My Wrath: Mitsurugi Matchup Thread

Belial

King of Hundred Swords
Legend:
  • In my reseach I've been relying mostly on usability: I wont post difficult punishment which deals less or slightly more dmg than a simple one.
  • Opponents moves are highlighted in bright yellow and separated from punishments by ":"
  • Punishments are separated from one another by "/"
  • IMR = In Mixup Range, this means within 2KB reach even if opp tries ot backdash. Sometimes I explain stuff, sometimes I just put a frame adv number so that you figure it out yourself.
  • SSL = Side Step Left, SSR = Side Step Right
  • I realize text is not a very convinient way to put data up, so I'll try to make a video later.

  • 6KA : IMR, 1B cant be interrupted and backdashed, can be only stepped left, where 2K tracks. At close block 2K cannot be backdashed.
  • 3KKK : 6B9 / JG 3B
  • 3KKB+K : 3B. You have enough time to react and interrupt her stance with fast pokes.
  • 2KK : 4B after 1st block / IMR +8 FC / JG AA possible on first hit too
  • 4KK : WS K / JG 236B
  • A+B : IMR +12 (only mid-close block) mixup with 66B or 4KB to beat A+B4

  • 11_77A : 4KBB
  • 44A : 6B9

  • 66K : 236B
  • 33_99K : duck 236B
  • 22_88KA : 236B only if both hits are blocked / 66K(BT B+K,3B) after blocking first hit, beats all variations of 22K

  • 44K : 236B / JG 236B hold
  • BT BA : hold 2G after blocking 1st hit, AA , 6B9 is possible too / 1B inbetween hits
  • PO A6(just) : duck 2nd hit, 236B hold , like you’ve guessed after ducking this you get pretty much anything.
  • PO B : JG 3B
  • PO K : 66BB or 4KB (easy)
  • PO A+B : react w 4B / step is possible but hard / JG 3B
  • PO B+K : 6B2 (blockable on reaction btw) / JG 66A+B
  • HO B : IMR +8 (ws A cant be interrupted) / react to HO with backdash&punish watch out for fake hover PO B
  • HO A : react to HO with backdash&punish, watch out for fake hover PO B
  • HO A+B : JG 66A+B
  • WR A : 6B9
  • WR BBB : 66B, then B+K (only 1B combos here) , 66B will punish all cancels.
  • WR K : JG AA
  • DB A : IMR +6
  • DB KA : same as 22KA
  • 33_66_99B* : JG 3B / duck 236B hold
Cant JG CE’e consistanly for some reason so idk how you punish that.

Notes:
BT 8A+B is SAFE (guide data wrong)
Nothing off BT A+B and HO A_B JG’s is just sad TT

Viola

Step Side:
Right (but most viola verticals have crazy tracking)

A big part of her game seem to revolve around 6B+K when orb is released. I will list numbers of the earliest use of 6B+K after last /
AA: IMR +10
AAB(orb in hand) : Detect on reaction if she finish the string. Punish with CH b6. If she doesnt finish the string see AA.
AAB(orb in air): 6B9 unless orb is really close to you (will cause trade hit).
6AA : 236B
6AB : Duck 2nd hit, 236B is your reflex is good (keep in mind there is 6AA)
3A : IMR +8 (BB cant be backdashed) / Paired w 6B+K becomes a very unpleasant trap
1A : 236B / in conjuction w 6B+K is -5 on block)
4A (orb in hand) : AA
4A (orb in air) : IMR+9 uninterruptible, BB unsteppable.
I couldnt JG Viola’s (B)B so idk
6B : IMR +6


3B (orb in air) : 6B9 / if used with 6B+K grants +1 advantage on block
1B : 3B
4B : IMR +9 / In conjuction w 6B+K provides massive frame adv, where 3B cannot be stepped or interrupted.
A+BA (orb in hand) : 3B
A+BAB (orb in air) : 1B
2A+B : JG 236B hold (for some reason it will CH)
2A+B hold (orb in air) : when orb turns yellow run forward. if you are quick you can 66BB her.
1A+B : 4KB / 2A if used in conjuction with 6B+K(when orb is released)
8A+B (orb in hand) : 66BB
8A+B (orb in air) : ssr, 3B
FC B (any) : IMR +8
WS B : IMR +8 (BB will hit backdash)

For 33_99_66K which is way more ofter : 6B9 cannot be escaped by TC moves or step/backdash etc. So use it to prevent any movement, then you can small dash mixup, which cannot be interrupted, but can be stepped, or deep dash mixup, which cannot be stepped, but can be interrupted. Your choice.
WS K: 236B
WS KA: 236B between hits. If you’re greedy you can do full hold 236B between. On hit you can interrupt A with 2A.
A+B_2A+B : 4A at far range / 4KB at closer ranges
3A+B : 6B9 / b6 at far range
4A+B : 3B
4A+B hold : easy to QS on reaction or JG 236B hold
6B+K_hold : IMR uninterruptible, 236B cant be stepped, 2KB cannot be stepped.
2B+K : FC 1B or 236B at close blocks
9B+K : JG 3B
4B+K : SS on reaction, punish of choice / 9G on reaction BT B+K / with good reflex 7A+B on reaction
33_99_66AB : SSR , punish of choice (3B works best thoug, b/c other stuff can wiff if Asta does UB)
22_88AA : JG 3B
44A hold : now if you’re anticipating it you can 66B+K MST A+B! otherwise MST KB will work just fine. / JG 236B hold also works.

------------------------
Maxi
------------------------

Step Side: Right

Vs Stance Guide
AA : CE / mixup between 236B and b6
6A : AA
3A: AA. If maxi goes for LI B hold he is at a point he cannot cancel it anymore. you recover and can JG or GI it.
4A : b6

1A: JG 66BB
FC 3A_AA_AAA: 236B at all ranges. If you hesitate b/c of multihit string to beat stanceyou can use WS A, but aGI will punish you.
BB : CE / JG 2KB* / mix up between AA (only lose to LO K) and 8A+B
6B4 : 88B seem to win over all options here but PSL 4 BL K or PSL aGI. Sorry, math aint ready yet.
3B : 6B9

4B : qsL, 33K, doesnt beat LO K
4BB : see LO B
1B: Mixup between iFC 1BB and ssr 236B hold

2KB : 236B / 4B between hits / 9A between hits / JG 66BB
1K : WS K
236K : BB / JG 3B
WS KK : 236 BT B+K 66B between hits
A+B : 6B9 on all ranges / 236B on all ranges but tip / JG 236B hold
2A+B : 66BB
4A+B : b6 / JG 3B
8A+B : JG 3B
B+KBBBA : no idea xD
WS B+K : 6b9 or b6 if they enter stance
66A : safe, but at most ranges 6b9 prevents stepping and backdashing on block
22_88A : Mixup between 88~B and 44B+K
44A : 236B
11_77A : 66BB on block / 4A on hit
22_88B : FC 3B
22_88B hold: tbd
33_99B : if they enter stance: 6B9 /b6
11_77B : 6b9 / if only partial hit happen at far range 3B
22_88K series : same as RO K
66B: CE / 2A on close block / mix between 66BB , 44A at far block
44B : mixup between iFC 1BB and 66B+K (react to KK by cancel 66BB, otherwise A+B). Keep in mind, Maxi can still do an empty 44B, which is safe.
66B+K: IMR
CE: 66BB / JG 236B hold

RO A~BL : 6B9 interrupts transition
RO AK : JG BB / IMR (3B will hits backstep)
RO AK hold : JG BB / 4B on reaction
RO B : BB / JG 3B (236B hold can be aGI'ed)
RO KK : JG BB / ss 236B hold
RO KA : JG 236B / 9B between hits

RC AB : 236B / JG 233B hold
RC A>B : interrupt with anything under 17 frames, 22B also works very well.
RC B : JG 236B
RC KK : JG 1st hit 236B / 4B between hits / JG 2nd hit 236B

LI A : A+B
LI B : 2KB* (only loses to PSL 4~G)
LI B hold : JG 3B / you can safely assume they’re not reacting to JG, so 236B hold also punishes this unless they LI B again.
LI K : adv on block. JG AA

LO K : 2A (except far range)
LO B : mixup between 236~B hold and bA. If your opponent knows you well and adjust, throw 2KB* or b6 into the mix, your risk reward will always be good then.
66B+K : IMR, BB cannot be escaped
LO AK : JG 1st hit FC 1BB / 4B between hits / JG 2nd hit BB

BL A : b6 at mid range / 236B at close range. However it is very rare that you block this move. It either hits or wiffs
BL B~LO : ssl 4KB
BL BB~LO : BB
BL KK : 66BB between hits. Delay 66B a bit. will punish BL K as well.

------------------------
Dampierre
------------------------

Some Dampierre moves has random property, much like Clean Hits, but instead of changing damage it changes animation and properties of his moves by cancelling blockstun into stances. There are two stances:
Fake Pain (FP): Dampierre jumps on one leg.
Poker Bluff (PB): Dampierre falls to the ground.
AA : duck 236B / JG AA

6A : IMR, 1B cannot be backdashed.
3AA : 4B between hits / 66B+K between hits (B+K or KB) / JG 3B
3AA ~FP : you have enough time for just about anything here on block b4 any of FP moves come out. however all of the above work. (FP never triggers if you 4B or MST)
1A : 236 / JG 236B hold/ 9A on reaction
4A : IMR, BB reaches backdash
WS A : JG 6B9
9A : IMR
BB : JG AA / JG 1st hit ssl 236B hold
6B : JG AA
3BB : ss 236B hold / JG 3B
1B : 236B hold
236B : IMR / it is possible to JG last hit (its not very difficult if you anticipate) but NOTHING is free. Given the fact how much damage this is on hit - pretty lame, really.
236B ~PB: This look as if Dampierre is just falling to the ground. even if you atack right away nothing is guaranteed
WS B : JG AA
9B : IMR
6K : IMR
3K : IMR
2K : WS K
1K : safe
1K~FP : pretty much anything
236KKKKK : 3B between hits - the most reliable punish. 1B followup is guaranteed for 49 total
WS K : BB
9K : IMR FC
A+B~PB : FMD B
2A+B : 236B
WS A+B : JG 3B / 4B last moment.
B+K : this UB is hella random., so watch out. sometimes its really fast, sometimes very slow and ends in PB. Try to step the moment you see it. You should be able to FMD B then.
8B+K : 6B9
BT B+K : minor diadv on block / nothing on JG.
66A : JG 236B
22A : BB
44AB : 4B between / ss punish of choice / JG 3B
66B~PB: 3B
33B: IMR 3B cannot be backdashed.
33BK: SS 236B hold/ JG 3B / 236B
33BK random effect 1 (GB): same as above but 1st hit is GB and any followup is guaranteed.
33BK random effec 2 (sweep~PB): 4KB/66BB. You can block this on reaction if you pay attention. If you are hit and get up or side ukemi you are open for PB mixup.
33BK random effect 1+2 (GB+ sweep): same as above but 1st hit is GB and any followup is guaranteed.
22B: JG 236B
11B: 3B
44BKBK: you can 3B after 2nd hit on block. This also punishes, should Dampierre stop after 44BK.
66K~PB: 66A+B
22K: 6B9
22KK: 236B hold / if you used 6B9 to punish, you can 66B after will to punish this version too
22KK~PB: 236B hold / if you used 6B9 to punish there is no guarantee.
11KK~PB: This move can randomly cancel to PB after either first or 2nd hit. If both hits are blocked 66BB or 4KB are free. When cancel after 1st block happends, you still have time to get small damage like FC 1B (no launch) on reaction.
44K: IMR
44K~PB: wakeup, nothing is free even if you JG.
FP B~PB : This is a GB move that hits mid and track very well. JG 66A+B is free.
FP A_B+G : if this wifs you get free punsihment. You can OS with JG 66A+B to beat both FP B and FP A_B+G.

PB A: IMR
PB B~PB: 3B
PB K : FC 1B or 66B (hits otg)
PB A_B+G: FC 1B hits otg

6B*: this cancels 6B into his random UB thing. step and punish of choice. sometimes it is randomly cancelled into PB so use punishers that hit otg.
33B*: This leaves damp at +0 on block with normal version and gives a lot of pushback on GB (dont know if there are guarantees)
22KK* (has random effect~PB): another useless BE (at least it seems so to me) it only starts for after 2nd hit, so all punishment will work as usual.
44K* (random PB): you can JG 2nd hit and 3A for CH, however random PB effect (the jump) will beat that. On block its the same as 44K.

As Viola is somewhat strange character, I just wanted to list her zoning game to help people learning her:
When her orb is released she has following ranged moves:
B+K high, returns orb back to her hand
6A+B, high, hits midscreen, orb stays in air, this can be delayed
2A+B, smid, can be delayed , animation is easy to see.
2B+K, smid animation is easy to see, return orb to hand
6B+K, smid, very slow
All of this is very easy to step.
When you get closer, she can use stuff like 4A+B (smid x2) to cover step

Of course this isnt much, but I hope it'll help a bit.

I Knew It!!!
Thank you once again for being so awesome Belial. Anything for Maxi will be much appreciated. Maxi is pretty rough if you don't know what to do against him.

Slightly fixed Natsu
Added NM to first post. Jesus he sucks so badly now, everything is even more unsafe than before, his NSS and GS totally raped now. WTF?!

I've been using the amazing, valuable information that we 8wayrunners have put into this site, along with the strategy guide (and special thanks to Belial) and I must say that Misturugi is by far my most complete character.

I mean I have nearly a response and punish for everything the opponent can do and it is amazing, even more so than when I played Mitsu in SCIV. I mean mitsu was way better in the right hands in SCIV but this SCV version feels near perfect for me.

To add to this thread: NM is such an easy match-up for Mitsu, it's laughable, almost everything he does can be either stepped, ducked, or blocked and followed with the appropriate punish (like 6B series, or CE). Anything else can be Just Guarded (which I still cannot do for the life of me!!!)

It seems the SC community does matchup charts differently than the fighting games I am used to. I will humbly step down and let you do your thing. Ill request for my thread to be closed.

Ivy up

By the way some cool find : after blocking Natsu 66B, like I aldready said you can punish with BB, she can only go HO to escape this. Well, if you think she'll go HO try... 9A+B you get weirdest air hit and ground stun to combo with 66A+B for huge damage!

I did the actual tests, please come back when you do as well

I've been playing against Cervy daily since the game came out.... but I'll go ahead and retest when I get home.

OK tested.

Apparently it only works on certain angles that come up a lot in match play.
3b must be i18.5 cause b+k hits every time and sieg's 3b hits every time

So ya I guess stick with 236b.
