Phoenix

Phoenixface.jpg

In a nutshell

Phoenix is the "glass cannon" character archetype taken to a total extreme. She has tools for every situation; lighting fast teleports, excellent fireballs, large proximity traps, a quick mixup game. The only things missing are great assists and health. Phoenix has about half of the health of the weakest characters in the game, and as a result will need to be played with some very special care. If she dies with five meters stocked, however, she returns as Dark Phoenix, the most powerful character in the game. The cost is high, but if you think you have the fortitude to put yourself into a very high risk, very high reward situation every game, take her for a spin.

Tips and Tricks

  • Practice! With a character as fragile as Phoenix, you will need to be intimately familiar with everything about her. Her matchups, her optimal range in those matchups, how assists change those matchups, and how to avoid everything. Blocking special moves and taking chip damage can be extremely deadly to Phoenix, so you need a gameplan for every situation.
  • Her teleport is very fast, but be sure you know where you are teleporting and why before you go crazy, as just one poor judgement could end her very quickly.
  • Phoenix' level 1 supers are both great. Phoenix Rage does high damage and combos easily, while Healing Field can artificially give her more life than she actually has. Choosing between using these and saving your full five levels will be a very difficult decision, especially in the heat of battle.
