OverviewStrategyDataCombosReplays

Leona belongs to a mercenary corps. As the adopted daughter of Heidern, she has received military training from a young age. The Orochi blood flowing within her veins led to an awakening of power.
Although taciturn and poor at expressing emotion, she has begun to show a softer side to both Ralf and Clark.

Gameplay Overview

Leona Heidern is an mobile rushdown charcter who pressures with her multitude of options. Be it space control, high/lows, or an excellent strike/throw game, she always finds a way. And when she does, it's always devastating (as long as she has meter to spend).
Pros Cons
  • Great Pressure: Her cruel 4/6B overhead, 2 instant overheads (j.A and j.8D), and a strong low. She really only need these buttons to open up her opponent.
  • Strong Space Control: 214P/K establishes surprisingly strong space control, which lets her approach her opponent with less risks than most people can. And even without it, her CD is a constant threat due to it's great range and can be made safe thanks to [4]6B OR frametrap with [4]6D. V-Slasher is an excellent long range whiff-punisher and EX V-Slasher beats everything since it's fully invincible.
  • EX Heart Attack: A move so good it needs its own pro space to show it. Being the core of her combo game, it gives her great damage for just half a bar along with good corner carry. You can combo off of lights and heavies, and her staple combos fully refund that 0.5 bar you spent. If it strikes you fancy, you can always just do a 50/50 reset with the bomb.
  • Meterless Mess: Despite the fact that her metered options are great, a Leona with no meter is nothing to brag about. While her pressure remains unaffected, she lacks meterless reversals and her midscreen oki is weak. Spending at least half a bar to be able to consistently continue your pressure after the combo is advised. That being said, Leona does have decent meter gain thanks to her specials.
  • Non-Negotiable Demand For Execution: Not only is Leona's execution difficult, but very punishing. Being a charge character comes with its quirks, be it good or bad. A lot of her staple combos have very tight links and being able to consistently input shortcuts is not easy. Messing up your Heart Attack combos puts you in positions you absolutely don't want to be in, and especially if you drop them with a high recovery move like [2]8P, as you're completely open for a devastating punish, or death.

25 Mid special 6 3 10 +2 0 - 30 60

A quick jab. Horizontal range isn't bad, but the vertical hitbox isn't great, making it harder than average to stop hops. This works better as a ground check, leaving Leona plus on hit or neutral on block.

  • Hits twice

A slicing uppercut. Gives Leona enough time to charge a special if she needs. Doesn't function well as an anti-air due to some forward movement during the move. Only the second hit causes pushback, so if you cancel the first hit Leona is left much closer to her opponent. This is important for her earring combos.

  • Can instant overhead from a hop

A downwards chop. This is one of Leona's lowest reaching jump normals, making this a pesky jump-in that's hard to low profile. When done immediately from a hop, this can hit a crouching opponent overhead. This is unsafe even on hit, so make sure it's the killing blow.

  • Can act as an instant overhead

A downwards back kick. This can only be done from a neutral jump. The hitbox is so low that when done instantly from a neutral jump, this'll will hit a crouching opponent overhead, just like j.A in a hop. But what makes it different from j.A is that this can be special cancelled as well as super cancelled. This causes slightly additional scaling when used in a combo.

Leona lunges forward with her hand. This is a very powerful blowback, covering a huge amount of space, capable of hitting at round start, while also being safe by cancelling into [4]6B. Leona can combo from this fairly easily as well, making this normal a constant threat in neutral the opponent needs to consider.

One hell of a low-crush overhead

  • Data in [] indicate when the move is cancelled into
  • Safe on block if spaced well. Cancellable version is not an overhead but safe regardless of range.

Jumps forward with an axe kick. Using this frequently will scare your opponent into standing blocking, which opens up combos from 2B. It also automatically frametraps from cl.A, 2A and cl.B.

  • C version can be crouched
  • Plus on block

Leona releases a ball of energy in front of her. This is an unusual projectile that is meant to be used as a pre-emptive defensive tool or a knowledge check pressure tool.

The A version is placed around chest level. This is the best version to be used to defend against ground approaches or on an opponent's wake up for extra plus frames. If timed on a knockdown to hit meaty, it recovers fast enough to where even if your opponent rolls behind it, you will be safe from a punish. Note that while it cannot be ducked, many sweeps can go under it and hit Leona, cancelling the projectile.

The C version is placed around head level. This can be completely ducked and sometimes even ran under, but the higher angle makes it better at stopping jumps. Also an excellent combo-filler in most EX Heart Attack combos.

The EX version works similar to the A version but travels further. This can connect from blocked CDs, but at many ranges the projectile will whiff entirely so this tends to not be worth it.

Leona slashes above her head. This is her primary anti-air special. It's very fast and covers behind her. Only the C version has upper body invincibility, with the A version having no invincibility whatsoever. The EX version however, has full body invincibility, making it more reliable and possible to use as a reversal.

  • Button pressed determines angle

Leona throws out her signature earring bomb. This is the slowest starting up projectile in the game, but it is capable of controlling space on screen for a long time, as it travels very slowly. Setting this up can be difficult, but once it's out the opponent is forced to either block it, which lets Leona approach her opponent safely, jump over it, to which Leona can respond with anti airs, or nullify it with their own projectile, which Leona can jump over and punish. Some situations where you can safely set up an earring are after a j.CD or standing CD, though from a standing CD you should typically go for a combo if that's possible instead.

The B version bounces once, while the D version goes in one smooth arc. Both versions will miss at crouchers at close range, but you should be avoiding using this at close range anyway. The EX version goes high, then bounces low, making it harder to jump over. It also has a much faster start-up, making it easier to set up and even lends its use in some combos.

  • Throws an earring that sticks to the opponent on hit
  • Automatically detonates 157 frames after it sticks
  • Has enough frame advantage to link 2C after
  • EX version is fast enough to combo from normals

This is a new version of the move that causes the earring to stick to the opponent if it hits, similar to her move of the same name in 2002. When it sticks it will either automatically detonate over time, causing the same launch as the K version, or be manually detonated with another 214P input. On block it functions the same as the K version. This is the harder earring to utilize but can potentially lead to more reward if timed perfectly, such as timing an instant overhead right when the earring is about to explode.

The EX version can combo from normals and lets Leona link a normal after the earring sticks, leading to long combos. Being able to combo into a stick allows for some set-ups where you reset the opponent right when it explodes, allowing for an unscaled extension.

  • Leona doesn't perform the slash until she reaches the opponent
  • D version has a follow-up with 6D
  • EX version performs the slash regardless of proximity and can combo from lights

Leona runs forward and does an energy slash. This is a safe advancing special move that covers a lot of ground. You can use this to have a constant threat for your opponent to consider at midscreen, as it easily catches neutral hops. This is a fantastic cancel from CD that is safe on block and leads to reward on hit. Note that some characters with command grabs can punish this. It's also prone to being full jumped over as well as Guard Cancel Roll punishes when used in cancels.

The D version has a follow-up that can be comboed into her air super, but is very unsafe and should only be used when confirmed. The follow-up causes a hard knockdown.

The EX version is very fast and can be used from lights. It allows for some small juggles after.

  • A version fires a projectile and bounces back
  • C version is a divekick
  • EX version leaves behind a multi-hitting projectile

This is an air special with distinct versions.

The A version has Leona throw out a diagonal projectile then flip slightly backwards. This causes a hard knockdown and is your generally preferred ender after 6B for oki. Very bad on block so make sure to confirm this.

The C version has Leona diving forward with the projectile, acting as a divekick of sorts. This is her most damaging cancel from 6B, as it allows for a juggle into [2]8A afterwards. Interestingly if cancelled from a cross-up j.C, the j.C will hit behind but the j.214C will hit in front. This covers a lot of space and can be used in neutral, but is risky and shouldn't be aimed directly at your opponent generally. Rather, it should be used to cover space where you think your opponent will want to go.

The EX version is similar to the A version, firing a projectile, but this time the projectile lingers and hits multiple times. This leads to a lot of block advantage and can reset Leona's pressure. Note that it's too slow to combo or be a true blockstring from her cancel options into this.

  • MAX version has invincibility

Leona dives downward and does her signature V explosion. This can only be done from the air, making this a combo from [4]6D~6D or her cancellable instant overhead (j.8D). The range is very long allowing this to be useful as a fireball punish in ranges where you wouldn't normally be able to land a jump in. The regular version has no invincibility however so it is prone to anti-airs. The MAX version does have invincibility though, making it possible to even go through uppercut reversals.

In the corner, a level 1 V-Slasher on hit can lead to a safe jump by immediately backdashing, then hopping forward.

  • MAX version has projectile invincibility

Leona charges forward and does a slashing combo. Combos from [2]8P. The regular version has two versions depending on the button pressed, with the B version being a bit faster. The MAX version can go through projectiles, making it a powerful but expensive way to blow through fireball blockstrings.
