Super Deadly Ninja Bees - (qcb hcf+B/D)

  • Mai performs her similar cartwheel but ignites into fire when she reaches her elbow strike animation.

Super Desperation Move

Super Deadly Ninja Bees - (qcb hcf+BD)

  • Mai goes into her elbow animation of her original Super Deadly Ninja Bees and Strikes with a larger flame doing more damage then her DM version. It's fast and invuln up to hit which makes it a better although expensive candidate for punishes or reversals than the DM.
  • There's an extra version where Mai changes into a one piece bikini before attacking with a different animation on the flames. As for its properties :
    • It has the same damage and framedata as the normal version
    • It is invincible from start to end, recovery included. Reducing to zero the already low chances of the move being beaten and forcing the opponent to only grab to punish on block.
    • OTG
    • Probability : 7.35%

Hidden Super Desperation Move

Shiranui Nine tails fox - (qcb hcf+AC)

  • Mai jumps in the air and hawks toward the opponent. When the move connects mai performs various vertical and horizontal dives at the opponent, before showing three possible outfits. You can press/hold a button before the move connects to decide the clothing and if you don't it'll be randomized :
  • Normal outfit. Press/hold A/D.
  • Black and purple dress. Press/hold B.
  • Wedding dress. Press/hold C.
If you end the match with the wedding dress, she wears it as her secret victory art.
