Character Overview

A secret member of the Belmont clan, Venus excels in the mid and close range. Her standout feature is the Venus Chain Wink Sword, an upwards moving projectile with negligible recovery, done with a flash kick motion. She also has a fast DP and a few unique whip normals that give her extra range and a large disjointed hitbox in exchange for slow startup. On the other hand, her slow walk speed and bad traditional fireball make her one of the worst members of the cast at long range; you'll almost always have to approach your opponent. If you like unique moves, setups and looping okizeme, Venus just may be the character for you!


Strengths:

• Upwards moving projectile with massive frame advantage that lends itself to great pressure, setups, and potential combos

• Whip normals with very long, disjointed hitbox and no hurtbox

• Short crouch, and crouching buttons shrink her even more

• DP that hits on both sides gives her a good up close guard cancel

• Great short range super that can be used for chip setups, combos, and anti-air!

• One of the game's best throws

Weaknesses:

• Very slow walk speed

• Has trouble approaching and countering full screen zoning

Strategy

Upball is your strongest tool which can be used in three main ways: corner pressure/mixups, fireball wars, and zoning in neutral.

In the corner, you can jail people in the corner by doing an upball that'll whiff while the opponent is getting up and hit meaty when they're active. Then you can do your throw OS (6236HP). If you get the throw you can loop into another meaty upball. You can also use meaty upballs to go into other options like another upball, sweep, chain, or instant overhead.

In a fireball war, you can slowly advance forwards by walking up forwards after charging and then releasing the upball to gain space. You can also use it right after blocking to stop pushblock.

In neutral, you can use upball in combination with HP chain Castlevania pokes to maintain space and discourage jump ins. Upball can also be used to shorten recovery of a sweep on hit, letting you advance towards the corner for longer.

Movement

Speed Forward: 1.192/1F

Speed Backwards: 1.064/1F

Jump: 51F

Jump Speed: 2.000/1F

Jumping Distance: 82

Back Dash

Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
N/A 1 N/A N/A N/A N/A

Strike, projectile, and throw invulnerable for 1~15 frames. Move Distance: 90

Although backdashes in this game are very strong, you'll only want to use Venus' if you feel you have no other alternative. This is because Venus has a bad full screen game. The only time you want to be full screen is if you're timing someone out. If you're already close to the corner, backdash doesn't put you in a much worse position necessarily, but your opponent could be baiting it...

Throws

Knee Machine Gun
link
Range Damage Techable Advantage
40 20 No +41(2P+42)

F.png+HK.png

A very standard untechable throw. Not a bad throw, but Venus' P throw is better in almost every way.

Hurricanrana
link
Range Damage Techable Advantage
48 22 Yes? +18(2P+19) on tech

F.png+HP.png

Venus' preferred throw. A throw with a very short tech window (only 6 frames!!). Throws opponents far. In the corner, puts them at a perfect distance for a setup, making it loopable. You can also go for the corner crossup if you happen to prefer, but most of the time, Venus' specialized setups will work better. Another great reason You can perform an option select between this and HP DP by inputting DP.png,F.png+HP.png, making it a very strong option in corner setups.

Normal Attacks

Standing Light Punch
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 4 5 6 14 +6 2 / 3 / 3/ / 3

It can be a situational anti-air, but overall, her other lights outclass this.

Standing Hard Punch
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 17 13 17 46 -1 10 / 13 / 15 / 17

Chain normal. While it looks good for poking, most of the cast can duck this. However, because it's tall, it can occasionally catch a jumper while trying to throw.

Standing Light Kick
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 4 5 6 13 +6 3 / 4 / 5 / 5

Not a bad poke but also kinda outclassed. The range is pretty good though and you can use it while you hold forward. Not always the best idea due to all the guard cancels though.

Standing Hard Kick
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 14 7 17 37 +5 10 / 13 / 15 / 17

Slow and not as good an anti-air as the hitbox may make you believe. Whiffs everyone crouching. Although it goes over low moves, you'll whiff as well and they can recover faster and punish you. Good only for combo fanatics as you can use charge buffering to make damaging combos with Chain Link Sword.

Crouching Light Punch
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 4 5 6 14 +6 2 / 3 / 3 / 3

While not bad for pressure, it also shrinks Venus' hurtbox, making it a good anti-air at certain angles.

Crouching Hard Punch
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 16 12 13 30 +4 10 / 13 / 15 / 17

Much better than standing HP. All the range advantages, hits all crouchers, and better frame data! One of her best pokes. Also hurtbox shrinkage means you can even go under some fireballs; the hitlag from connecting this move will prolong the smaller hurtbox!

Crouching Light Kick
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 4 5 6 14 +6 3 / * / 5 / *

Great poke! Look at that hitbox! Hits low, and has the great frame data her other lights have. Use often, and confirm into crouching HK for knockdown!

Crouching Hard Kick (Slide)
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 7 12 9 28 +8/D 7 / * / 11 / *

Another great poke that hits low. Big hitbox and long range. Since it knocks down, it trades favorably in many situations. After landing this at most distances, you can make a setup if you have charge, but party time truly begins in the corner.

Jumping Light Punch (Vertical)
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 4 All All All +7~+14 3 / 4 / 5 / 5

Basically the same as below.

Jumping Light Punch (Moving)
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 4 All All All +6~+14 3 / 4 / 5 / 5

It's ok for jumping in at certain angles. While it's not bad as an air-to-air, jump HK is almost superior there.

Jumping Hard Punch (Vertical)
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 5 11 8 24 ~+14 9 / 12 / 14 / 15

See below.

Jumping Hard Punch (Moving)
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 5 11 8 27 +4~+14 10 / 13 / 15 / 17

This notorious chain move is Venus' instant overhead. Use it with caution though, it's unsafe in many situations. Outside of that, the ridiculous hitbox on this move can stuff many anti-airs, especially when used early in your descent.

Jumping Light Kick (Vertical)

Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 4 All All All +3~+14 4 / 5 / 6 / 7

Below.

Jumping Light Kick (Moving)
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 4 All All All +3~+14 4 / 5 / 6 / 7

Venus' cross-up. Handy when you need it.

Jumping Heavy Kick (Vertical)
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 5 11 6 25 +6~+14 7 / 9 / 11 / 12

And below.

link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 5 11 6 24 +6~+14 8 / 10 / 12 / 14

A great air to air hitbox. Sometimes good to come down with on a jump-in as well. Learn the angles.

Special Attacks

Venus Wink Chain Sword (LP)
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 20 Projectile 3 23 +34~ 10 / 13 / 15 / 17

D.png (charge) U.png, LP.png 30 frame charge time

Chip: 2

Commonly called upball, this is a staple of Venus play that can be used in many situations due to it's ludicrous amount of plus frames. Fantastic pressure tool that also has incredible combo potential. Just upball.

Venus Wink Chain Sword (HP)
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 24 Projectile 7 31 +30~ 12 / 16 / 18 /20

D.png (charge) U.png, HP.png 30 frame charge time

Chip: 3

HP upball has slightly less plus frames but has more range and does more damage. By mixing up between close and far range upball, you can dissuade jump ins while keeping up pressure through pokes. Just upball.

Detailed upball notes to be covered in the strategy section.

Venus Love-Me Chain (LP)
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 4 4X6 20 47 -15~+1 6 / 8 / 9 / 10

DP.png+LP.png

Chip: 1X6

A strong guard cancel or regular anti-air option with slight cross up protection. Safer and faster than the HP version.

Venus Love-Me Chain (HP)
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 6 5X6 29 65 -29~-9 8 / 10 / 12 / 14

DP.png+HP.png

Chip: 2X6

Higher damage guard cancel option that also has slight cross up protection. You can perform an option select between this and the HP throw by inputting DP.png,F.png+HP.png.

Crescent Beam (LP)
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 11 Projectile 36 47 +1~ 8 / 10 / 12 / 14

QCF.png+LP.png

Chip: 2

A very subpar fireball. Not used very often besides as an occasional punish option or combo tool. Sometimes necessary for pressure or to throw out at long ranges.

Crescent Beam(HP)
link
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 15 Projectile 51 66 -14~ 10 / 13 / 15 / 17

QCF.png+HP.png

Chip: 2

It travels very quickly, so it's mostly used for very specific long range punish options. Incredibly long recovery, so don't try to do this anywhere near your opponent.

Desperation Attack

Chain Explosive

4123632HP
HCF.pngQCD.png + HP.png
Guard Level Startup Active Recovery-Whiff Motion Advantage Dmg/Face/Counter/Both/Chip
link 14 6*6*8*21*3 30 88 +7/Knockdown 48 / 62 / 72 / 72 / 12x5

One of the stronger desperations in the game. Can be combo'd into with upball. Very strong on counterhit, as anti-air or for corner chip kill setups; it does multiple hits on chip, but is not safe in the corner to backdash, outside of Chibi Moon. Even can see use as a guard cancel in some matchups. Contrary to what many people thought for a long time, it cannot hit for 100% of health on counterhit.
