  • st. B: Mature throws out a quick side kick. Good to use as a close ranged poke. Not cancel-able.
  • st. C: This fast, wild slash moves Mature forward quite a bit. Not cancel-able.
  • st. D: Use this inverted roundhouse kick is great to use as anti-air against hops and close ranged jumps. It's not cancel-able though.


  • cl. A: This quick elbow attack is special cancel-able & chains from her other standing & crouching light normals.
  • cl. B: These two side kicks hits the opponent twice; the first hit is low, and the other hit is a mid. Easy to hit confirm into, special cancel-able & chains easily from cr. B, and cr. A.
  • cl. C: A VERY fast special cancel-able uppercut slash that can be used as a quick close ranged punish & can hit opponents attempting to jump over you. Negative frames on block but has a good amount of push-back.
  • cl. D: Mature throws out a pair of roundhouse kicks that are special cancel-able. Has more damage than cl. C, but not as fast.


  • cr. A: This is a crouching version of her st. A. Great to use as a close ranged poke, special cancel-able & can chain easily into itself, and crouching B.
  • cr. B: This crouching light kick isn't special cancel-able but can chain easily into itself & her other standing & crouching light normals that are special cancel-able.
  • cr. C: This special cancel-able slashing uppercut has a crazy amount of range and speed which makes it a great anti-air.
  • cr. D: This sweep has a good amount of range & is special cancel-able on hit or if whiffed.


  • j. A: This jumping jab has a downward angle that makes it great to use as a jump-in attack.
  • j. B: This jumping sidekick pokes out horizontally. Great to use as an air-to-air attack. Susceptible to low profile crouching anti-airs from the opponent if timed improperly & if used too often on grounded opponents.
  • j. C: Best used as a jump-in attack but doesn't have a very low aim in it's horizontal range.
  • j. D: This kick is similar to jump B, but has a higher angle that points diagonally upward slightly. Best used as an ground-to-air attack. Whiffs on crouching opponents.


  • st. CD: Mature whips out a slow roundhouse kick that wall bounces on hit. Can be whiff cancelled into her special moves.
  • j. CD: This jumping kick points at a sharp downward angle. Good to use as an air-to-ground attack.

Special Moves

  • Mature flips slowly in the air towards the opponent.
  • Light punch version travels at a half-screen distance, with a super jump vertical height.

  • Mature performs a slash during any point of the Despair animation
  • When released from dp+A or dp+C, it can be neutral on block if it hits the opponent very late
  • Soft knockdown

EX: Fast start-up, limited invincibility & safe on block depending on the spacing (can be punished up close by 1F command throws like Clark's hcf+D).

Deathrow - (qcb+A/C)

  • This is the start of her rekka chain. She performs a 3 hit slashing uppercut that is super cancel-able on the last hit.
  • If blocked, Mature is pushed away from the opponent, which makes it VERY hard to punish.
  • No difference between the light and heavy punch version
Deathrow [Follow Up 1] - (qcb+A/C)
  • This is a 3 hit horizontal slash that is super cancel-able on the last hit
  • More negative frames on block with more push-back from the opponent.
Deathrow [Follow Up 3] - (qcb+A/C)
  • This is the final part of her rekka chain that is super cancel-able from any of the 3 hits.
  • Pushes Mature forward a bit at the end of the animation. Can be punished by the opponent by any move that can reach Mature during recovery.
  • Soft knockdown

EX: Each slash can be inputted individually, up to 5 slashes. More damaging than the normal version. Unsafe on block.

Metal Massacre - (qcb+K)

  • Mature will run towards her opponent & perform a turning slash motion towards the opponent mid-section.
  • The light kick (B) version will cause Mature to perform a extremely short dash into her slash motion. Slightly negative on block.
  • The heavy punch (D) version will cause Mature to dash a much longer distance & then perform the slash attack when she gets close to the opponent. Hits 3 times. Neutral frames on block.
  • Super cancel-able

EX: Fast start-up, not invincible, hits low, safe on block.

Ebony Tears - (qcf~hcb+A/C)

  • Mature will reel backwards little & then swipe her hands downwards to create a rather large projectile that travels forward.
  • The light punch (A) version travels slow enough for Mature to walk behind and follow
  • The heavy punch (C) version travels faster than the light punch version. Mature is able to move when the projectile travels over a 3/4ths screen distance.

EX: The projectile travels at a moderate speed, hitting the opponent 3 times for a soft knockdown. If blocked, the projectile will still make contact with the opponent for 3 hits. Mature can immediately move after the projectile is released.

Super Special Moves

Heaven's Gate - (qcb~hcf+B/D)

  • Mature will taunt the opponent before performing a quick dash forward. When Mature connects with the opponent during the dash, she will grab the opponent with one arm, take them towards the wall & violently slam them into it.

  • Hard knockdown

Max: Has more invincibility than the normal version, and more damaging.

  • Has a good amount of start-up invincibility
  • VERY unsafe if blocked
  • Hard knockdown


  • (qcb+A/C)x3 combos into any super has to be super canceled before the last hit (9th hit). The last hit of the third qcb+A/C pops opponents up. The difference between canceling on hit 7 or 8 is 10 dmg.
  • qcb+ACx5 combos require you delay the start of the special so that the fifth hit of the special won't whiff. If it hits, you can follow up with qcb+B.
  • qcb+B after qcb+BD needs to be delayed slightly so the qcb+B will hit. Otherwise, it will whiff.
  • Outside of the corner, qcb+BD side switches.
  • Qcb+D, cr.A is a 4-frame link. If qcb+D hits, you can combo into cr.A into special.
  • You CAN advance cancel her supers from anywhere. The most optimal is qcb~hcf+B/D, qcfx2+AC
